Get more GWLBWLB: Kristin breaks some big news…or not

Article: Get more GWLBWLB: Kristin breaks some big news…or not


Everybody loves a little good news. And we’re pretty sure nobody likes it more than the folks slugging it out in a war zone. It must be pretty frustrating missing a call from your wife when you’re in Afghanistan…but, at least Roman didn’t know what he was missing (yet).

A GWLBWLB night before Christmas

Article: A GWLBWLB night before Christmas

It was the night before Christmas and all through New York City there were scores of singles reaching out via text, email, Facebook, or the old-fashioned phone call, making plans for the evening. My girl Cherri’s family was scattered across the country so she relied on her friends for company and a stiff drink celebrating the birth of Christ. I wanted to stay in and brace myself for the onslaught of family, but met her anyway. The whole BGF thing isn’t some television gimmick.

Article: This week on GWLBWLB: Keeping your head in the game


There is only one shopping day left until the next GIRLS WHO LIKE BOYS WHO LIKE BOYS. Sherrié is off to New York with Shane for her record release party. But while she’s worrying about knocking everyones’ socks off, he’s got relationship drama on the mind. Will Shane get it together for their big night?

Fights are fun — Peter's dangerous addiction to Drama

Article: Fights are fun — Peter's dangerous addiction to Drama


We’ve all got problems, especially around this time of year. And if your biggest problem is that your pregnant best friend likes to go to bed at 10 p.m. and can’t get drunk with you…then consider yourself lucky? We’ve already got a drunk uncle crashing on the couch, a sibling in the midst of a nervous breakdown and a mother who swears she’s not coming over unless her three teacup Yorkies get to sit at the dinner table. C’mon Peter, you’ve made THREE babies, you must know how this works.

Queering Kickstarter

Article: Queering Kickstarter

With the right pitch anything is possible. It’s like Harvey Milk said, you just have to have hope. Thanks to Kickstarter there is an unbelievably wide variety of Queer projects set to take off. From films about Brooklyn’s first African American-owned gay bar, to documentaries about gay porn and gay rights pioneer, the scope is as diverse as the community they stem from. Here’s a sampling:

Looking for that out NBA player

Article: Looking for that out NBA player

It’s a strange world we live in when TMZ Live is a source for discussions of social progress and political sound bites. I refer to the news, I mean entertainment source, when I want to verify rumors like the untimely demise of Jon Bon Jovi (false!). But when its daily show had Mark Cuban on,…

Watch GWLBWLB's Jared strip down

brightcove.createExperiences();

Well the weather outside is frightful, but Jared’s nude photo shoot is quite delightful. Too delightful, in fact, for TV. Don’t worry, you’ll still get an eyeful on Friday’s episode of GIRLS WHO LIKE BOYS WHO LIKE BOYS, but we’ve got the bits that were just too hot for the airwaves. Consider it an early holiday gift and spread the cheer.

Get more GWLBWLB: That went swimmingly

Article: Get more GWLBWLB: That went swimmingly


There are a few situations when it is OK to lie on a first date. If your date asks an inappropriate question, for example, it’s ok to fib instead of dodge. And if you met online, but your paramour looks and acts like a completely different person in the flesh, it’s ok to smile and nod before you run away, never to be seen or heard from again. This week’s deleted scene, however, has got to mark the first time we’ve ever heard anybody lie about not being able to swim.

Now that we’ve found love, what are we gonna do with it?

Article: Now that we’ve found love, what are we gonna do with it?

Ah, the inevitable girl-on-gay-boy crush. Distinguished men, and the trade that love us, recognize this scenario? There’s a party, you’re drinking, you’re best friend—the greatest woman since your mother—is drinking, too. Everyone is having a blast dancing, and tacky jokes keep you laughing. But once you make eye contact everything changes as the hormones responsible for many-a-baby begin to stir in your best girl. You’ve got a crush on your hands, so what are you going to do about it? Coming out of the closet was supposed to have settled all of this. But if you’ve got to deal with it, do it tactfully.

This week on GWLBWLB: Cops and crushes

Article: This week on GWLBWLB: Cops and crushes


A night in jail, a girl-on-gay-boy crush and ripped men in Santa speedos…well, it’s all in a day’s work down in Nashville. This week’s GIRLS WHO LIKE BOYS WHO LIKE BOYS is one part Law and Order and two parts Christmas cheer.

The kids are alright: raising LGBT kids in a world without angst

Article: The kids are alright: raising LGBT kids in a world without angst

The world was touched by the Boston Globe article about a family’s love for their transgender child as they braved unknown challenges that resulted in small but powerful local change, validating budding medical practices, and proving America’s love of family is alive and well. Young people are becoming more honest about their sexuality and identities earlier in life, almost eradicating the rite of passage known as coming out of the closet. The Internet, along with the media’s portrayal of characters that experience this angst-ridden niche, provides a voice to young people drowning in a pool of isolated depression—so thank you, gay-liberal-Hollywood-mafia agenda. Having parents that are brave enough to accept what they do not understand, or never expected, from their children can have a positive effect on everyone involved. This is not an isolated phenomenon, rather a beautiful example of our emo-world in the 21st Century.

Gay or straight: Abuse is never OK

Brent’s struggles after getting out of an abusive relationship have been a big theme on this season of GIRLS WHO LIKE BOYS WHO LIKE BOYS. If you, or someone you know is in an abusive relationship, the Anti-Violence Project is here to help. Abuse is never OK, but it happens –- one out of every…

Issues, issues, issues! This Nashville cast sure has a lot of them. It’s always interesting to hear your bestie define your biggest issue. It’s rarely the one you assign to yourself, is it?

A Republican primary style guide

Article: A Republican primary style guide

Art plays an important role in society. It is a cultural mirror, a telling portrayal of some of our more irrational or eccentric tendencies. We appreciate the perspective it provides, but it’s always more entertaining when life imitates art, as was the case with Rick Perry’s latest presidential commercial. Tricky Ricky asserts that openly gay military personnel are the latest abuse of separation of church and state. Meanwhile, he’s dressed as Ennis Del Mar, America’s tragic man crush. Guess Rick went to the loo during the thirty-second guy on guy love scene in Brokeback Mountain. What else could explain his sartorial choice? No matter, the look works for him. Here’s a quick style guide for a few of the other 2012 Republican contenders. Lights, camera, and all that jazz.

Article: Get more GWLBWLB: Getting ready for the holidays


We get it. You came here hoping for an extra bit of Jared’s sex tape. You’ll have to go digging around on the Internet to find that yourself (and then post a link for us, obviously). We’re not doing that because we want to end up on Santa’s nice list. And we’re not the only ones getting ready for the holidays. Sherrié and Shane have a little Christmas single they’ve been working on.

Joe Zee on Kathy and Erik Wilson:

Article: Joe Zee on Kathy and Erik Wilson:


Their Challenge: When I first met husband and wife design team, Kathy and Erik Wilson of Kathy Wilson Atelier, it was very clear who wore the pants in that design family. Erik, a law student, ex-Marine and devoted husband, was loyally standing by his designing wife as she explained enthusiastically to me her concepts behind their men’s and women’s collections.

Joe Zee on Qristyl Frazier

Her Challenge: Qristyl Frazier dubbed her plus-size collection “Plus Sexy” and in the world of fashion, we can definitely use more fashion-worthy plus size collections. This has been a market that I personally feel has been underserved with great fashionable options in recent years and Qristyl had the opportunity to step in there and be an integral part of that budding industry.

Dropping the T-bomb: Tackling our 'Tranny' problem

Article: Dropping the T-bomb: Tackling our 'Tranny' problem

Poor Kelly Osbourne, losing her fiancĂ© to a transsexual model. And poor Neal Patrick Harris, putting his foot in his mouth co-hosting Live with Kelly, uttering “Tranny” on national television, twice. NPH is a terrific poster child for gay men and Queer America (men had ceded that role to Ellen and Rosie, even Gaga). It seems Ms. Patrick Harris realized using the T-Bomb was in poor taste, and tweeted an apology, maybe because as a gay man he understands how people let hateful words fly absentmindedly. I really felt pity for the gentleman—for Kelly O, things happen.

The next time you are in Nashville you have GOT to stop by the Red Lobster. If Jared and Tenisha are any example, the servers are, obviously, way more fun than the food.

Our favorite, courageously gay viral videos

Article: Our favorite, courageously gay viral videos

It’s been a pretty good week for those of us obsessed with watching courageous kids kick ass on the internet. Nineteen-year-old Zach Wahls made a case for his two moms and reminded us all why Iowa rocks. Who doesn’t love a great speech for a great cause by a very smart young man? Meanwhile, over in California, 14-year-old Jonah Mowry lit up the internet with his vow to stand his ground in light of incessant bullying. Since we can’t just watch these videos over and over again (our neighbors have started to complain), we decided to take a trip down memory lane and list some of our other favorite gay videos. Do you remember them?

Ladies — Is your best friend turning you into a gay man?

Article: Ladies — Is your best friend turning you into a gay man?

The best parts of having a stylish gay man by your side are trusting his opinion to help create an outfit and taking his advice on handling new relationships. However, sexuality aside, your friend is still male and, by nature, has a different perspective on situations. So we’re sure blindly following his strong opinion can sometimes leave you wondering, is he turning me into gay man? Keep your head up for a couple tell tale signs and gauge whether or not your platonic paramour’s pointers have you teetering on the edge of an inadvertant sex change or not.

Oh, Peter! You kiss Kristin with that mouth? We’re all into pushing buttons (and envelopes), but we’re a bit concerned everyone’s favorite Nashville comic is headed for a beatdown.

A very Gaga Christmas

Article: A very Gaga Christmas

If you celebrated Thanksgiving like any American family—with the arguments and the sweet potatoes — you may have caught A Very Gaga Thanksgiving. I watched it and it was weirdly macabre and oddly lit. I loved it because I hated it; I hated it because I loved it. The Katie Couric interview! The 12 costume changes! The salami waffles and the interpretive dancing! The only bad thing about it is she’s not doing one for Christmas. But, I’m like Santa Claus and I give gifts, so I’m planning a Christmas special for her.

Curtain — Lady Gaga comes out of a long hallway wearing a tree, or IS a tree. A tree covered in dildos. She breaks out in “Bad Romance” as everybody in the world freaks out. She still does that song! We love that she still does that song! She’s standing inside a gingerbread house that is made up men wearing gold body paint and gold spandex booty shorts. Instead of singing the highest WANT YOUR BAD ROMANCE right where she catches fire in the vid, she sings WANTS A WHITE CHRISTMAS! And we all nod because yes, because who doesn’t want a white Christmas.

Missed periods! Questioning your sexuality! Jesus! No, you have not been transported back to the worst year of your life (junior year of high school — trust). It’s just a sneak peak at what we’ve got in store for you tomorrow night on GIRLS WHO LIKE BOYS WHO LIKE BOYS.

The holiday season is a real test of a gentleman’s taste and mettle. While it’s the thought that counts, your best girlfriend has — without a doubt — come to anticipate your gift to them every holiday season. Since we know you’re not one to let her down, here are a few suggestions to keep your favorite lady up to date and the center of attention. Right next to you, of course.
