When a friend of photographer Debbie Boud posted pictures of actresses from "The L Word" noting how attractive they were, Boud was dissatisfied: not all of the women were actually gay and they represented only a stereotypically pretty look. In response, her friend challenged Boud to find "gay and hot" lesbian models, an oft-omitted group as far as popular media goes. Thus began her 2010 "It's All Butch," calendar project.

Since she first crooned that tear-jerking hook on Macklemore & Ryan Lewis's now infamous gay-rights anthem "Same Love," singer Mary Lambert has gone from working three jobs to recording full-time.
Her latest milestone comes in the form of her first music video, for none other than the single "She Keeps Me Warm." After watching the clip, I couldn't help but notice that it left out a few key elements necessary for music videos of today: There were no ... Read More

In case you’re just tuning in, Batwoman and her girlfriend are engaged. In fact, they have been since Issue #17 (aka February). With the fictional wedding of the decade just around the corner (no comment to Game of Thrones fans), it looks like the biggest clam jam to the whole affair isn’t a mad scientist who grew twelve legs after an accident in a stem-cell research lab, or even a nutjob mother-in-law, it’s none other than the publisher of the ...

Rehana Kausar and Sobia Kamar astounded many conservatives in their home country of Pakistan when they recently married in a civil partnership in the UK. Kausar and Kamar are the first lesbian Muslims to wed, as LGBT groups are scorned (or at least ignored if they're quiet enough) in custom and law in Pakistan. The ladies immediately applied for political asylum, as they'd received death threats from opponents of their decision in both the UK and Pakistan. ... Read More

Dear Style.com editors,
I recently had the pleasure of reading your pre-Fashion Week slideshow. Wedged between "Is There Life After J. Crew?" and "Are You Sick of Prints Yet?", I came across a story titled "Is Lesbian Chic Here to Stay?". It was a definite eye-opener. Here I was, so focused on trivial matters like securing the freedom to marry, that I failed to realize that I am currently a fashion trend.
Previously, I was under the impression that I became ... Read More

When it comes to werewolves, there are a few words you can usually expect to hear. 'Taylor Lautner,' 'teen wolf' and 'chiseled abs' are a few of the usual suspects. 'Lesbians' and--hell--even 'girls' are far more rare. The most high profile werechick on TV right now is Rikki (Kelly Overton) on True Blood, the girl Alcide is trying to sexercise with while practicing for his impending pack leader battle. But, that’s about to change with June ... Read More

We have a lesbian superhero, so why not a Lesbian Super PAC (or Political Action Committee)?
Just in case you're not up on your politics: a PAC is a group that dedicates itself to campaigning for social and political change. And yesterday, some very well-known lesbian activists debuted LPAC, dedicated to protecting their rights and those of their families. According to the LPAC website, the group’s other main goals are “Supporting sexual and ... Read More

In this Daily Beast article, Jacob Bernstein explores the phenomenon of lesbians watching gay male porn. The article brings up so many great points about desire and attraction. What do people watch when they watch porn? There are many different theories about what men are actually watching when they look at porn, but what about women? Contrary to popular belief, women apparently watch just as much porn as men, so what are they watching? And why in the world are ... Read More
