Not Really Gossip: Dear Zoe, I think we can find room for you on #teamlesbian

zoe-saldanaI haven’t bought an Allure magazine in… FOREVER but I might have to pick up next month’s issue featuring Star Trek and Colombiana star Zoe Saldana.

In an “eye-raising” response to a question about her sexuality, Zoe responds.

[I might] end up with a woman, raising my children….That’s how androgynous I am.

Oh really Zoe?

Hmmm… A sister with fly glasses, a bit of an overbite, and a gift for gab might be exactly what you need… I’m just saying. *shrugs*

On the real, Zoe if you like it I love it… as long as you don’t see this as an escape from the drama that is male-female relationships. Because from one lezzie to a not-so lezzie, these heffas out here… aren’t much better. (Yes I said heffas)

Celezbrities Out and About: Wanda Sykes (@iamwandasykes) starring in Fast and the Furious 13?


No.. not really.

Wanda joined other celebrities for the 37th annual Toyota Grand Prix celebrity race this past weekend.

Each year during the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach,Toyota hosts a celebrity race alongside the real racing for a good cause. This year, the event will raise more than $100,000 for “Racing for Kids,” a national organization that benefits children’s hospitals in Southern California, and create $20,000 for other charities.

Celezbrities Out and About: Erica Ash (@TheEricaAsh) at the Scary Movie 5 Premiere

vibe-scary-movie-premiere-5Erica Ash looked AMAZING at the Scary Movie 5 Premiere last week. She plays the character of Kendra in the 5th installment of the comedy spoof franchise.

If she looks familiar, she should! The K Word has loved her long time from The Big Gay Sketch Show and MadTV.

Have you guys seen the movie yet? We haven’t seen a Scary Movie since MAYBE the first one but Katt Williams back on the big screen???? We might have to slide to the front of the line.

Elsewhere in the blogosphere: Task Force a partner in White House policy briefing for black LGBT emerging leaders

I was very excited and happy to see a focus on LGBT people of color by the National Gay and Lesbian Taskforce, last year. I look forward to seeing what they are doing this year…

National LGBTQ Task Force Blog

The Task Force is partnering with the Obama administration, the National Black Justice Coalition and the Human Rights Campaign for today’s White House policy briefing for black LGBT emerging leaders.

At the Task Force we insist that systemic racism is an LGBT issue and that’s why our work every day of the year reflects our deep and central commitment to racial justice.

This includes our annual Racial Justice Institute at the National Conference on LGBT Equality: Creating Change, which strives to build an anti-racist LGBT movement and to train leaders from across the country on how to embed the fight for racial justice into our fight for LGBT equality; and our recently released analysis, Injustice at Every Turn: A Look at Black Respondents in the National Transgender Discrimination Survey, with the National Black Justice Coalition and the National Center for Transgender Equality.

The report shows that anti-transgender bias coupled…

Weekend with The Boys…a Super Gay Adventure.

A gurl was ill last week! All she could do was sit in front of a movie or two, attend an art show and dance the VDay away with her supergay girlfriend. But as promised, it’s all about the boys this week. Yay!

Ok. So I was lying in bed one morning, fishing through the channels when I caught The Skinny on Logo. Yes! I’d wanted to see this movie for aeons and had been talking about it for weeks. Lo and behold, her she was…with no pesky rental fee. lol.

First off, the soundtrack is Gawd Awful. That alone almost killed it for me. I am all for supporting LGBT artists but…c’mon. On the plus side, the actors were really good. I mean the boys, bois, girls and gurls were all a fun bunch of chocolate eye candy. The story was pretty standard. If you are a fan of Noah’s ARC, you’ll love it. I am a fan…but I say, “See it, then judge. Not bad.”

The morning before our art show, I watched Finding Me. I’ve never seen the series but I hear it’s got a pretty substantial following…reminder to me, check it out. As far as the movie was concerned…mas o menos. I mean the love scenes are pretty hot but the main character was so annoying. I mean that gurl…whew!


I rounded out my weekend with the boys on Sunday night with Breakfast on Pluto. Now that queen was special! She was a hot Irish mess just waiting to be served with a side of Good Face and a Body to Match. This movie was sorta difficult for me at first but either I began to understand that thick brogue or the actors got tired of trying so hard. Either way…the movie got better for me. Miss Patricia Kitten was either innocent, foolish or blessed. All of her dreams come true. I won’t say more. It’s kind of a must see.

Next week, it’s back to the girls! lol. I’ll take a gander at Girl Play by Lee Friedlander… and it’s not what you think. This one comes highly recommended. Thespian Lesbians…oh, my! Au Revoir, darlinks.
