Our City is invaded. To my left, to my right, as far as the eye can see, on any pretext possible, fake lesbians. T.A.T.U. on video smash hits has a certain french film charm. I can even buy the girl on girl Levis billboards. She looks like she may actually have kissed a girl for reasons other than impressing boys at a club.
Workward bound yesterday the cover of "The Sydney Magazine" caught my eye. Two ultra glam, made-up model types displaying some serious chemistry. I couldn't wait to get into work and see what pretext they used to justify this eyecatching lesbierotic cover.
A "serious" article on gay sydney. Justification for a serious attempt at grabbing some extra readership with some fashionable safe risqué.
I think this is a sign that lesbians have passed into the region of the seriously passé.
