Best. Lesbian. Week. Ever. (May 11, 2007)

There’s a lesbian on Mark Burnett’s latest reality show Pirate Master, which basically looks like Survivor on a pirate ship.

Thirty-year-old Los Angeles bartender Jupiter,
who came out at 16, describes herself as “a caretaker who is vivacious, outgoing
and spiritual,” has hobbies like dancing, spinning poi (fire), swimming and
writing, and is working toward getting certified as a massage therapist, but
she ultimately wants to become an entertainment talk show host (hey, I hear there’s
an opening on The View).

Here’s a photo of Jupiter, all decked out in Jackie Warner’s new clothing line pirate wear:

And here’s a promo for the series:

Jupiter may be the only out contestant, but in those outfits, the women all look like lesbians to me! Look for the show to premiere on May 31st on CBS.

Speaking of pirates, remember that comic concept by Megan Rose Gedris I mentioned last
year called I Was Kidnapped by Lesbian Pirates
From Outer Space
? The comic followed the adventures of Susan Bell, “a normal
Earth girl, with a brand new job as a secretary. Little did she know, she would
be kidnapped by Lesbian Pirates from Outer Space! They claim she is one of them,
and, whether she likes it or not, she’s now part of the crew! Traveling through
the universe, under the direction of Captain Janet McSapphic, they take what
they like and do what they please. Meeting villains like The Incredible Male
Man (a super-chauvinist), the sexy pirate girls won’t let anyone stop them!” Now that should be the premise of Mark Burnett’s new pirate series, not a silly treasure-hunting competition.

I Was Kidnapped by Lesbian Pirates from Outer Space took second
place in the 2006 Comic Book Challenge, thanks in part to votes by all of you, and now
it’s being made into an actual comic book, first online, then in print.

Here’s the cover of the first issue:

The first few pages are up now on, and new pages will be added on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for six 22-page issues, after which it will be published in graphic novel form.
