GIAH is in a coma

Girlfriend is a homo, I know
I know – it’s serious
Girlfriend is a homo, I know
I know – it’s really serious

Hey homo friends,

We’re in a bit of a coma right now. Trish left us for AfterEllen–but we’re not bitter. In fact, we’re totally psyched. But, we’ve decided to take this opportunity to restructure a bit and will be back soon. Hang tight.

The award for most amazing paperback announcement

… goes to Miranda July. Her short story collection, No One Belongs Here More Than You (which includes an amazing story about a bisexual couple’s relocation to Portland and subsequent break-up) is now available in paperback, but don’t let us tell you. Let her. It’s much more entertaining.

Jack(ie) + Jill(ian)

Jackie Warner and Co. are coming back into your living room to kick your ass. The third season of “Work Out” airs tonight. If you’ve never been inspired to do some tricep presses while watching tv, this show could be the one to change that. Besides, it’s almost tank top season (though for some, it always is).

But before “Work Out” premieres tonight (on Bravo at 10 p.m.), catch the live season finale of “Biggest Loser,” (on NBC from 7-9 p.m.) who’s equally fit trainer Jillian Michaels has been linked to Warner as a former “partner.” It’s unclear whether that means just as a one-time co-owner of Warner’s Sky Sport Spa or if Michaels is, in fact, on our team too (we’ve been thinking yes. Duh, why else watch the show? Besides the motivation and whatnot…)

Dita Von Teese has a “lesbian past”

Dita Von Teese has become famous for being a burlesque star and was married to Marilyn Manson. Now, her “lesbian porn past” has come out, clearly making her the most scandalous person the Bible Belt could imagine. We think it’s hilarious–and aren’t that surprised.

According to The Sun:

Explicit clips of the 35-year-old being spanked and pleasured with a bizarre sex toy by women have emerged online.

It is a blow to Wonderbra who only launched her as the new face of their famous push-up bra last month.

They hoped Dita — real name Heather Sweet — would enhance the company’s clean-cut image by designing her own limited edition collection.

There are no comments from Wonderbra yet, but what would they expect? She’s a burlesque star, duh. Lesbians are basically keeping burlesque alive. They also happen to buy bras.

Homo A Go Go: a go for 2009

Arguably the most popular queer arts and music festival in the country, Homo A Go Go is coming back next year, and this time, moving from its hometown of Olympia, WA to either San Francisco or LA. The last HAGG was in 2006, and while the event is a biennial one, they weren’t able to raise enough money to hold it last year. Don’t let that happen again!

There’s a benefit for the fest tonight in San Francisco at Thee Parkside, with Lynnee Breedlove MCing, and featuring Dyspecific, DJ Snacks A Lot, DJ Conner, Homo A Go Go dancers, art and film screenings. It’s all ages and cheap, so there’s no reason not to go, unless you don’t live in San Francisco. Sucks for you. And us.
