AfterEllen.com's Best Lesbian Week Ever: Nov. 10-16

Posted: 11/16/2012 9:40 pm

AfterEllen.com is Logo's site for lesbians and bisexual women in entertainment and media, which means we pride ourselves on knowing all kinds of Sapphic pop-culture facts. Each week we share some of the best tidbits on The Huffington Post in our series "Best Lesbian Week Ever." Here's who and what was on our raging gay radar this week.

We're still winning!: Out lesbian Tina Kotek has been elected House Speaker of Oregon, which means she's our first gay lady to hold down the job. She needs some sort of secret handshake with Tammy Baldwin and Kyrsten Sinema, Arizona's bisexual congress member.

Getting lit: NYC has a new lesbian bar, The Dalloway, and it's named after a Virginia Woolf character. Something tells me the women aren't going there to do any reading.

LOL: Ellen DeGeneres said she enjoyed Kate McKinnon's impression of her on SNL over the weekend. We're just happy that they finally have a lesbian on the show so that we can see Ellen, Tabatha Coffey and other celesbians get some play. But someone, please, fix Kate's wig.


Off the field: Pro soccer player Megan Rapinoe was honored at the L.A. Gay and Lesbian Center Gala last weekend, and she cleaned up nicely. She's still rocking one of her team colors, though.


In other awards news: J. Crew designer Jenna Lyons was named a "Fashion Original" at Glamour's Women of the Year Awards. She thanked her partner, Courtney Crangi, which was apparently the first time she's uttered her name in public.

Get Out: Out magazine put an actual lesbian on its Out 100 cover this year. Well, one of its covers. Out of four. Yay, Jane Lynch!
