Whenever myself and the missus detect a frisson of celez on our gaydar, we light up and are proud to have another famous lesbian on “our team”, and witter on about who we’d want to include – such as Ellen Page or Kristen Stewart. But sometimes we cringe when we hear who might be on our team. Who are your ultimate queerbians?

Have I ever dreamed of spending Valentine’s Day fewer than 20 feet from Melissa Etheridge? You bet! And she didn’t disappoint. While she seemed hesitant at first, within minutes, she looked like kids do when you give them their favourite toy and let them do as they please with it. Her enthusiasm was — as it always is — endless.
Icon is a word that is overused at times, but it fits Melissa Etheridge like a glove. Grammy winner, Oscar winner, mother, survivor, out and proud.
I was watching the Rachel Maddow show podcast the other day and I was struck by something she said. “I am definitely gay.” It was the way she said it. No shame. No lowering her voice. She was most definitely not apologising or trying to explain it away. In fact, she seemed damned proud of [...]
Ok. So maybe that’s an unfair way to characterise the battle between Melissa and Tammy Lynn Etheridge, but I just couldn’t get that image out of my head after reading it, so I thought I’d pass the delights on to you. You may remember that last year, Tammy had a fit that Melissa had left [...]
Well, can you Adam-and-Steve it, folks, it’s been thirteen whole days since the last Gaelick news round-up? So, what has been happening in that intervening period? Lesbian LOLs? Sapphic surprises? Dishing the dykey dirt? Read on!
The queer community has accomplished so much when it comes to acceptance. But when it comes to the trans, cross dressers, gender queer and just plain butch, there’s so much more to accomplish. Society may well be ready for two pretty girls in white dresses to walk down the aisle, but the wider society is still remarkably hateful when it comes to people whose gender isn’t obvious to the casual observer.
…I’m not saying Melissa didn’t withdraw from family life. I’m not saying her cheating is a total impossibility. But what I’m saying is that Tammy is already making clear her lack of a deep, abiding relationship with reality. She’s lying. She’s trying to permanently separate her children from their mother.
Melissa Etheridge‘s most recent album Fearless Love was reviewed all over the place long before it hit the shelves a week ago. The reactions were mixed, but they all agreed on a few things. 1. It’s a true-blue return to Melissa’s late 80s, early 90s style. Really, it’s like Lucky and The Awakening (and to [...]
Rocker Melissa Etheridge and actress Tammy Lynn Michaels have sadly ended their 9 year relationship. It’s so very sad to read that such a long relationship has come to an end. Let’s hope they both find love again in the future
Tour dates and fan club travel packages have just been announced for London, Amsterdam and Berlin for the end of June. Melissa Etheridge will rock out in London twice, in fact, — once at her own concert in Shepherd’s Bush and once at the Hard Rock Calling rock festival in Hyde Park. Her new album, [...]
So if you had to pick 31 icons from the gay historical community who would you pick? Who could you leave out? It’s a toughy
