TLC’s spinoff series ‘Say Yes To the Dress: Bridesmaids’ decks out a lesbian wedding in Atlanta

TLC's

When I ask Yolanda Mahoney how she met her fiancée, she asks if I want the long version or the short one. I tell her to give me the version she tells at parties. The story begins with her previous relationship of four years, which ended on her birthday.

“Which was really bad timing,” says Mahoney. “But it needed to happen, we both knew it. So I was just taking some time to myself after that, and I’m out at this WNBA game, and I meet this softball player who invites me to go to her championship game, but it’s on a Sunday at seven in the morning…”

“Wait,” I interrupt. “This story involves the WNBA and lesbian softball players?”

“Yes,” she replies. “Why?”

“No, go on. This may be the most lesbian story ever told.”

‘The Daily Show’ takes on fake lesbian bloggers

The Daily Show with Jon Stewart

Last night's “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” took on the recent controversy of two straight men posing as lesbian bloggers. If you haven't heard anything about it, our Dyana Bagby has a fantastic take on the story.

“The Daily Show” has covered LGBT issues extensively recently, even creating a new, and apparently regular, segment called “We're here. We're queer. Get Newsed to it” to house its LGBT coverage.

Stewart also highlights the ongoing battle in New York state over marriage rights for same-sex couples.

Check out the segment below:

Must-sees for your gay Netflix account

Gay favorites on Netflix

It's no secret that I'm in an open relationship with my Netflix instant account. I watch a lot of documentaries and super-dramatic sad movies, but every now and then I'll indulge my inner queen and look for time wasters in the gay and lesbian genre.

Of course, even though the gays are sprinkled throughout the entertainment industry, we've yet to become fully realized when it comes to the entertainment we make for ourselves.

In other words: A lot of gay movies you'll find on Netflix are utter crap.

In an effort to solicit the best titles from our readers, I'll share with you some of my gay (and non-gay) must-sees. Be prepared for whacky tastes, and please don't hold me accountable for wasting two hours of your life on something I loved but you hated. View at your own risk.

Interview: CNN anchor Don Lemon on coming out on cable news

CNN's weekend news anchor Don Lemon

CNN anchor Don Lemon is accustomed to reporting headlines, not making them.

But as the author of the new book, “Transparent,” Lemon decided to make public to the world what many people close to him already knew —he is gay.

Lemon anchors CNN Newsroom during weekend prime time and also serves as a correspondent, including covering the deadly tornado that hit Joplin, Mo. He came out publicly May 16 in an article published in the New York Times, which discussed the risk he is taking with his memoir.

The announcement has been well received by most people and the book tour has kept him busy giving dozens of interviews to newspapers, radio shows and TV shows.
