How Can We Shift the Focus of Queer Media From Homophobes and Lady Gaga To Actual LGBTs?

A few times on Queerty, we’ve tried to present “Lovely Ladies,” one of our skin pic photo galleries of beautiful women for our lesbian and bi gal readers. But often we’ll get lesbians complaining that we should stop posting lipstick boner-lesbians and start showing women with an authentically queer aesthetic. AfterEllen‘s editor Trish Bendix has the same problem, but she thinks that independent lesbian web series will slowly open us up to less mainstream representations of the queer woman.
