ABC Family has picked up the Jennifer Lopez produced hour-long lesbian drama, tentatively titled The Fosters. What’s the show about? “A multi-ethnic family made up of both foster and biological kids, all of whom are being raised by two moms.” Sounds good to me!

It’s official, Portia de Rossi (and the rest of the Arrested Development cast) will be returning to the small screen in the Spring. Spring? I can’t wait that long! The show’s fourth season will be available exclusively on Netflix.

The Wrap is reporting that out director Lisa Cholodenko (High Art, The Kids Are All Right) has signed on to direct November Criminals. The film “revolves around a student exploring the underbelly of Washington society in order to uncover the mystery surrounding the death of a fellow student.”

What are your thoughts of Nicole Kidman‘s risque V Magazine cover? Me likey!

Yesterday tellofilms launched their new lesbian webseries The Throwaways. Premium subscribers can watch episode one and if you’re in the fence about the series Heather Hogan calls “The Misfits meets Skins meets modern-day Dickens,” then watch the show’s trailer.

On Tuesday, August 28th lesbian comedian Erin Foley (Conan) will be taking the stage at The Pleasure Chest (7733 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood, CA) for the Performance Anxiety Comedy Show. Yes, it’s a sex toy store and yes, it’s awkward to watch a show there, but it’s also hilarious!

On September 6 the Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (LAGLCC) is having their first ever Thursday night mixer at the Abbey. Business casual attire is suggested although I prefer tube tops
