Tank Top Tuesday

In my ongoing effort to find joy in 2017, I’d like to take a moment to thank some of Hillary Clinton’s biggest backers – in tank tops. Like the only America who is great actually again, above. (Not that either America was ever not great.) These are some strong, talented women who supported a woman who is infinitely qualified to lead our country. Show More Summary

These Old Bones

Here’s a weird confession. Since the election I have been slowly, surely making my way through the entire run of “Bones.” Yes, “Bones.” Yes, the one with Brennan and Booth. Yes, all 11 going on 12 seasons of it. Now, there’s nothing wrong with “Bones.” It is a perfectly serviceable crime procedural-romantic comedy-workplace ensemble show. Show More Summary

My Weekend First Lady

Courage, kittens. Courage. I can’t believe this is the last speech Michelle Obama will give as First Lady of the United Statues. For the past eight years it has been our country’s great honor to have this amazing woman at its helm. She has been the epitome of strength, intelligence, honor and compassion. Show More Summary

Rise Up

Some people have been saying, “But think of the art!” as a silver lining of the Trump administration. A reinvigorated arts community will funnel its energy and we will enter a golden age. But as someone who writes for a living I can say, fuck that. Show More Summary

Thanks, Obama

Look, no one wants him to go. We’ve all witnessed eight years of a truly good, decent and honorable man leading our country with integrity and courage. Did he get everything right? Good God, he’s a human being. No one can. And he faced...Show More Summary

SGALGG & GGALGG: Golden Globes Edition

Maybe, given the makeup of this year’s Golden Globe attendees, I should just change this feature from Straight Gals Acting Like Gay Gals to Hell Yeah Everyone Is Gay. Fine, we’ll keep it SGALGG. But us gay gals left their mark, and from the looks (an actions) of our straight counterparts there might even be a little LGBT envy happening. Show More Summary

Take Your Broken Heart, Make It Into Art

At tonight's #GoldenGlobes we honor Hollywood legend Meryl Streep with the prestigious Cecil B. Demille Award. pic.twitter.com/dxpeCDNXY6 — Golden Globe Awards (@goldenglobes) January 9, 2017 What Meryl said. All of it. Every last word. Show More Summary

Into the Great Wide Open

Hiya, deviants! It’s been a strange holiday season. Strange and long. It’s been so weird that on Tuesday, I was actually grateful to be back at my desk at work. It was nice to be looking out the window at the sunshine on the snow, thinking,...Show More Summary

My Weekend Watching

This is very sad, obviously. But also, in a strange way, very joyful. These two people who loved each other so deeply and knew each other do intently were ultimately, there for each other until the very end. I still cannot believe we live in a world without both Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds. But at least they will always have each other.

Sure. Why Not. Let's All Kiss.

I have absolutely no idea why Ruth Negga and Natalie Portman are about to make out here. Like, no clue at all. It’s something about great performances coming together for W magazine. But as far as I know Ruth and Natalie have never appeared in a film together, or any project whatsoever. Show More Summary

Dance With Somebody

Well now that I’m back, really back, into the swing of things for 2017 it’s time to get my groove back on. So what better way than with a bunch of lesbian (or at very least lesbianish) couples dancing together. That simple joy of dancing with someone you love or at the very least like very much cannot really be described in words. Show More Summary

End of Gifcation

So on my last day of vacation, I wanted to share a little laugh/cry about our old year and our new one. As in, I know we are all thrilled to get 2016 behind us, but I have some bad news to share about 2017. Time to get our own personal dragons and blow some shit up. Bring it, 2017.

Kiss for a New Year

Every New Year deserves a fresh start. Every New Year deserves a shot at joy. Every New Year deserves a big kiss. So no matter what 2017 has in store for us (and low whistle boy does it ever), we deserve a moment of happiness to start the New Year. Show More Summary

My End of Year Crush

I don’t know about you, but I plan to spend the last two of days of 2016 surrounded by friends, gay ladies and lots and lots of bubbly. Granted, I probably won’t be as dapperly attired as these ladies from yesteryear. Nor do I pretend I can attain their level of elegant mirth. Show More Summary

Too Late To Say Goodnight

I keep meaning to leave you lovely Vacation Vixens to enjoy, but then real life keeps interrupting my holiday and rudely demanding I write about it. Yesterday’s news of Debbie Reynolds’ passing was almost too much to bear. A mother passing one day after her daughter. Show More Summary

Our Rebel Heroine

This fucking year. This infernal fucking year. This year has taken our heroes away one by one. And while all deaths are sad, some cut deeper and mean more. Quite simply, some just hurt. It hurts to lose Carrie Fisher. Terribly. We all knew her as the galaxy’s rebel princess. Show More Summary

Lost Faith

As you know, I don’t write about the fellas too often on ye olde blog. But George Michael wasn’t just any fella. He was The Fella of my 80s childhood. I can’t tell you how many times I danced to “Faith” or the oh-so-scandalous “I Want Your Sex” in my bedroom. Show More Summary

Yes, One Bed Is Fine

How was your Christmas? Appropriately merry, I hope. This is the first holiday season in quite some time I won’t be traveling. So that means no missed flights, no getting snowed in, no chance encounters with famous lesbian singing twins. Show More Summary

Happy Holigays! Effing Dykes is BACK!

3 weeks agoLGBT / Lesbian : Effing Dykes

Well, helloooo, homos! You know that thing that queers do when they get into a serious relationship and then just… vanish? Gays. My sweet, loving, tender gays. I did this. I pulled this shit on you. I got myself into a new, serious relationship and fell off the face of the earth. Show More Summary

My Weekend Christmas

I have watched this almost every Christmas for, well, decades. It’s filled with joy, wonder and sweet melancholy – often just like the holidays themselves. May this season be filled with so much joy, all of the wonder and just the sweetest (and gentlest) of melancholy. Merry Christmas or happy whatever you celebrate this season. And have a very merry weekend, all.
