Good morning! Can you even believe it's the last day of April already?

On her show yesterday, Ellen DeGeneres congratulated NBA player Jason Collins on his coming out.

The mom of a lesbian doesn't understand why her daughter wants to address her wedding invitations in a feminist fashion. You Don't Understand Me And You Never Will! *Stomps off, slams bedroom door.*

Good morning and happy Friday!

In case you're wondering what Tila Tequila is up to...

Apparently The Valley has some lesbian kissing between two otherwise straight housemates. It's like the equivalent to Snooki and Deena.

Amber Heard looks stunning in the poster for her new film Syrup.

Morning Brew - Fri. April 5: A Brazilian singer comes out, a lesbian vies for Miss South Carolina

Morning!

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!

If you're watching The Voice in the UK, you might be interested in knowing that contestant Leanne Jarvis was in a 2010 lesbian vampire film called Blood Army.

Also in UK reality shows, some girl-on-girl kissing in the trailer for The Valleys.
