Gays love a parade

L Word goddess Jennifer Beals came, saw and waved to all the hundreds of thousands of queers (plus the merely curious and possibly lost) folks gathered to celebrate San Francisco Gay Pride 2006. Though, possibly more fun than seeing Jennifer ride in an open convertible was seeing the brawny men in suits (out of picture) surrounding her car and keeping the rabid dykes away. Though, as far as I could tell, their services weren't needed...we behaved.

Another "star" sighting this pride -- former N'Syncer Lance Bass walking out of a Castro restaurant. Hmmmm. Very interesting, considering his "rumored" boyfriend Reichen Lehmkuhl was another celebrity guest in the parade. Lance, with a male companion, was spotted during the early part of the parade, wearing a green cap and trying to look incognito. No word on whether he made it down to Market Street to catch his fella waving to the crowd. Here's a hint, Lance, if you insist on keeping the closet door shut, perhaps best not to be on seen in the queerest city in America on its queerest street during its queerest weekend of the year. Just a suggestion.

It has reached epidemic proportions...

Yeah...so I really, really, really do not understand the bandana thing. But I am greatly concerned that the sickness is spreading. First Kanye. Now Justin. Seriously, Timberlake, are you a nattily dressed bank robber or just a fey germaphobe? Either way, it's a bad look. Very bad indeed.

Joss Whedon, Will You Marry Me?

Just in case you had any doubt, Joss Whedon is the coolest man on the face of the planet. Here he is receiving an award from the feminist group Equality Now, with his trademark wit and passion on display.

"Equality is not a concept, it is not something we should be striving for. It is a necessity. Equality is like gravity. We need it to stand on this earth as men and women."

Go rent Buffy the Vampire Slayer now. You can thank me later.

Add Grand Marshal to Alpha Bette's Credentials

Jennifer Beals will grace the streets of San Francisco with her presence as Grand Marshal of the Gay Pride Parade this weekend. In an attempt not to drool on my keyboard, I will hold off from commenting on this topic until I can reform words. I just want to look at the pretty picture...

The Evolution of Ashlee

What the hell is up with Ashlee Simpson? It's like she's the star of her own secret reality series, called "Becoming...Jessica Simpson." I mean it, check out the photographic evidence. It's actually kind of sad. Now she looks like everyone else. Behold:
