Whitney: Can I Be Me premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, and saw the music legend’s nearest and dearest open up about their relationships with her.

Among the film’s contributors was Whitney’s best friend and assistant Robyn Crawford, who is alleged to have had an intimate relationship with the I Will Always Love You star.

The singer’s former stylist Ellin Lavar addresses Whitney’s sexuality in the film, saying:

I don’t think she was gay, I think she was bisexual. Robyn provided a safe place for her… in that Whitney found safety and solace.”

Basic Instinct director Paul Verhoeven is working on a new film called the Blessed Virgin which will be about a lesbian nun with miraculous powers who falls in love with another sister.

The producers said it is based on the life of 17th-century Italian nun Benedetta Carlini, who caused a sensation when she claimed to see visions of Jesus Christ.

Verhoeven will present the project at the Cannes film festival next month, production company SBS International told AFP.

The new film, adapted from “Immodest Acts — The Life of a lesbian Nun in Renaissance Italy” by the American historian Judith Brown, will star Belgian actress Virginie Efira.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of coming out on her sitcom Ellen, Ellen DeGeneres will air a reunion with several of the stars who helped bring the episode to life.

The hour-long anniversary special that will air on her talk show this week pays tribute to The Puppy Episode, in which DeGeneres’s character Ellen Morgan came out and became the first-ever gay or lesbian lead character on television.

In a sneak peek at the reunion show, Laura Dern, who played DeGeneres’s love interest in the episode, articulated lovingly about being there for that piece of LGBT history. (Advocate)

And finally, this amazing tweet about coming out proves mothers are always right. Jareliz Diaz – now 20 – tweeted back in 2013 that her mother had asked if she was a lesbian because she had appreciated the female form.

But much to the surprise of her followers, four years later, on 22 April 2017, she added that her mum had been right all along. (Pink News)
