AfterEllen.com's Best Lesbian Week Ever: Nov. 23-30

Posted: 11/30/2012 4:54 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.

Meet Virginia: New York has a new lesbian bar and restaurant called The Dalloway. Let's hope its early success hints at a renaissance for lesbian hangouts. They're a dying breed.

That'll Do It: Wanda Sykes told Jay Leno she hooks up with Al Roker every now and again to make sure she's still gay. Works like a charm every single time.


New Plot: New Girl gave its lesbian gynecologist a girlfriend and a bun in the oven this week. She also got turned on by vagina talk, as you do when you're a pregnant lesbian.

Rachel Maddow wouldn't have this problem: Stephanie Miller apologized on her show this week after accidentally saying the Salvation Army wasn't anti-gay, when it clearly, clearly is. She admitted that she hadn't done her research and was misinformed.

Jolene is not my lover: Dolly Parton said that despite her close friendship with her BFF Judy, she's still not a lesbian. "We know," lesbians responded with a sigh.

It only takes one to ruin it for the rest of us: Mary Lynn Rajskub said she may be married with a kid, but that doesn't take away all her lesbian relationships from the '90s and early 2000s, even the one that was with a waitress who stole from her and broke her heart.

Closer to heaven: Tegan and Sara's new video for "Closer" premiered with a lot of kissing and karaoke. We couldn't have dreamt it better ourselves. Well, except we'd be invited to the party.


Prior to the arrest: Lindsay Lohan said this week that her relationship with Samantha Ronson didn't work because they were both "toxic." I wish that were all that happened to her this week.

Cougar Town: Tonight is the end of Logo's series DTLA, and it stars Melanie Griffith and Sandra Bernhard as exes. Melanie's new GF is played by ex-Top Model contestant AzMarie Livingston, proving she doesn't have a type.
