Hello readers, It’s the beginning of Lesbian Visibility Week, I’m a proud lesbian! I've been lucky to call the lesbian community my home for the last decade, and I've never been more in love with the label, identity, and word than I am today.

For me, being a lesbian means I get to center my gayness, I get to center my womanhood, and I get to center celebrating other women, and that sounds like heaven to me.

It hasn't always been this way, I identified as bisexual for a while and at times, have really struggled feeling comfortable as a lesbian, especially as a trans woman. Trans lesbians are made to feel like invaders, predators, and criminals, but I've been blessed to find a welcoming and loving lesbian community here in Los Angeles, and around the country who whole-heartedly embrace me.

If you want to be a lesbian, but you maybe feel like the identity has gone out of fashion recently, here's a list of just a few of the celebrities who proudly use the label, reminding us all of the wonders of being a lesbian.

Watch and all her sister sites this week to see more Lesbian Visibility coverage. Now, onto the news.

Man Crush Monday

Tom Daley sure is an eyeful in the Great Britain Olympic uniform! The 29-year-old Gold-medal-winning diver is getting ready for another Olympics, this time in Paris, France. Will he return to the medal ceremony? We know we'll be rooting for him!

What We're Watching

This week a bunch of us at the staff have binged or are in the middle of binging the wild Netflix show Baby Reindeer! I don't even really want to spoil what it's about, because it is one WILD ride!!! But if you like twists, turns, facing uncomfortable topics head on, and non-stop excitement, it's a show for you!!!

I also want to give a shoutout to Velma season 2 on Max, debuting this Thursday! The first season was widely hated, but mostly because of racism and misogyny, and it was actually pretty good. I'm very excited to see the second season!

Message From the Editor

Hi Out readers!

It's been a really busy week over here at Out HQ, and we have so much fun stuff in the works for you all that we can't wait to share!

Challengers has been making a huge buzz in Hollywood lately, and it's easy to understand why, especially with a love triangle as intense (and delicious) as Josh O'Connor, Mike Faist, and Zendaya's! We talked to all three of those stars over the weekend, and the full interview will be up soon! We also got the chance to reconnect with Red, White & Royal Blue heartthrob Nicholas Galitzine to talk about The Idea of You, his new rom-com co-starring THEE Princess Diaries and Brokeback Mountain icon Anne Hathaway, so be on the lookout for that as well!

And how about that epic —and history making — RuPaul's Drag Race season 16 finale, amiright? The competition was intense this season, but one queen came out on top! And as if that wasn't exciting enough, we also FINALLY got the release date for All Stars 9! All the info you need for all things Drag Race can be found on!

It's gonna be another exciting week, so keep coming back to Out to follow along for all your queer pop culture needs!Keep reading!
