You've probably heard of the French film "Blue Is the Warmest Color" if the Cannes Film Festival was on your radar or if you've heard buzz about the film's graphic 10 minute sex scene. But just in case you haven't, we're here to bring you up to speed on the critically acclaimed lesbian-centered drama that got itself an Nc-17 rating in the U.S.
What It's About: From Tunisian director Abdellatif Kechiche, "Blue Is the Warmest Color" is based on the 2010 French graphic novel of the same name by Julie Maroh. The film follows the love story that blossoms between two women, Adèle (Adèle Exarchopoulos) and Emma (Léa Seydoux, "Ghost Protocol").
Why It's So Controversial: "Blue" first hit the film world's radar when it won the Palme d'Or, the top prize at Cannes, earlier this year. However, the film provoked such fiery attention for its incredibly erotic and extended sex scenes. »

I had you at bras and panties, didn't I? Breaking The Girls is the latest film from director Jamie Babbit who also directed the cult classic But I'm A Cheerleader. Breaking The Girls doesn't seem to have much of a black comedy feel to it and instead takes the old criss cross plot device from Strangers On A Train and adds a sapphic twist. Madeline Zima (the little girl from The Nanny and The Hand That Rocks The Cradle) is sure to show some major skin in this movie as she has been apt to do »

Many comedy fans were happy to hear the news last month that former "Fallon" writers Diallo Riddle and Bashir Salahuddin were getting a half-hour HBO comedy pilot with Lorne Michaels serving as executive producer. Now, according to the Hollywood Reporter, the project has a director who's a familiar indie film world name. Jamie Babbit, whose breakout film was 1999's "But I'm a Cheerleader," will helm the still-untitled Atlanta-set pilot, slated to shoot this September. While Babbit's directed several films since "Cheerleader," including 2005's "The Quiet" and 2007 SXSW Competition winner "Itty Bitty Titty Committee," she's been much more active in television, directing episodes of everything from "Gilmore Girls" and "The L Word" to "Drop Dead Diva" and "United States of Tara." Babbit's latest feature, "Breaking the Girls," premiered at Frameline last month (where she also received the 2013 Frameline Award) and is getting a theatrical and VOD release from IFC...

Obsession, friendship and loyalty are a dangerous mix, and the brew has provided a backdrop to countless thrillers because the concoction is always potent. This summer, an upcoming indie thriller mixes those ingredients up to deliver "Breaking The Girls" and as it gets ready to make its debut, we have the exclusive poster for the film. Directed by Jamie Babbit ("But I'm A Cheerleader," "The Quiet"), starring Madeline Zima (“Californication," “Heroes”), Agnes Bruckner ("Anna Nicole," "The Woods") and inspired by Patricia Highsmith's "Strangers On A Train," the sexually charged story follows two young women -- Sara and Alex -- who form a pact to murder each other's bitter enemy. Sara will kill Alex's stepmother, while Alex will dispose of Brooke, a woman who humiliated Sara and cost her a scholarship at the school she attends. But as usual, things don't always work out as they should... After playing Frameline in San Francisco, »

Good morning! Pride may be over, but we can still be proud year-round.
SyFy loves our use of #Gayliens so much, they used it in this Best Defiance moments countdown.
Juliet Rylance has been cast as a "possible love interest" for Kalinda on The Good Wife. She'll be playing "Holly, a whip-smart Assistant State’s Attorney who shares a past with Kalinda." Yay! I love Kalinda's GFs from the past.
I hope you have better friends than the girl who wrote this: How Not to be a Dick to Your Lesbian Friends.
Indiewire reports that Blue is the Warmest Color is "not likely" to enter the Oscar race this year because of when it will be released. By the next year when its eligible, it will have lost momentum for much-needed Oscar buzz. »

Good morning! Are you still celebrating yesterday's amazing news? I definitely had a cocktail in celebration last night.
...at one point in the office I see Heather Locklear’s character, Rachel King, and I find out from a conversation over a glass of wine she hasn't had sex in six years, so I just decide to kiss her and see if there’s any life in her.
You know, as you do sometimes. "Just making sure you're still alive."
Out lesbian Jean Podrasky wrote about her cousin Chief Justice John Roberts's split decisions on Doma and Prop 8 for The New Civil Rights Movement. She's also in the process of planning her wedding.

A legendary lesbian bar in London is being celebrated during Gay Pride in the UK. The Gateways was opened from the 1930s until the 1980s. This piece in The Guardian celebrates its history.
In case you need this for your own Dyke March coming up: "How to survive a lesbian protest march."
Rolling Stone recently interviewed Michelle Chamuel about dressing "sexier," fake hair and not wearing contacts while on The Voice.
Toronto comedian Guy Earle has to pay Lorna Pardy for the lesbian slurs he used about her during a 2007 routine while she was in the audience.
Lady Gaga has come out of temporary Twitter retirement to tweet this:

Spain's openly lesbian politician Ángeles Álvarez is encouraging closeted women to come out. She's like "Look, guys, I did it and I survived!"
Susan moves in her lesbian girlfriend, which riles [her dad]. He is very Ocd about everything.
If NeNe Leakes were gay, I feel like she'd be out about it, considering she's on two of the gayest TV shows on air. But Real Housewives lesbian rumors just keep on happening.

Natasha Lyonne has been in our hearts since she cried and drooled saying "I'm a homosexual" in But I'm a Cheerleader, and she's making a return to screens of all sizes in several new projects. She spoke with Paper about her new film, G.B.F., which is about how fashionable it is to have a gay best friend. (The film also stars Sasha Pieterse!) Natasha told the mag of the film:
I play Ms. Hoegel, the head of the Gay-Straight Alliance. She was abandoned long ago by her gay best friend. My sense is that she couldn't be with him forever because he was gay, and not straight. Now with the hole that he's left, she has Mr. Anderson Coopurrr, her cat. I think her goal [in the film] is tokeep the kids on track with not being so narrow-minded or Salem Witch-hunty about their pursuits. »

This Justin Bieber manipulation is presented without comment.
BuzzFeed has a piece called "How OKCupid Helped Me Explore My Bisexuality." The writer thought she wanted a threesome, but what she wanted was to have sex with a woman.
BuzzFeed also has a piece on why Megan Rapinoe would make a great Bff. All the reasons they list could easily be in an article on why she'd make a great Gf, too.
Out lesbian Analouisa Valencia is vying for the Miss South Carolina crown. I'd love to see a Miss America with a girlfriend!

This year's Oscar nominees are pretty straight, especially compared to the last few years where we had a strong showing with The Kids Are Alright, Pariah and Albert Nobbs. Fear not — we've got a way to keep it gay when you watch the ceremony this Sunday, at least as far as the women go.
