Hello, you beautiful lesbians! We’re starting something new here on GO: a weekly round-up of all the interesting, strange, or otherwise entertaining queer news you may have missed during the chaos of the work week, called Lez Spill The Tea. Listed both with links and short synopses, picking which pieces of news to binge-read on the subway or on your lunch break is about to become the most fun part of your day. Consider Lez Spill The Tea your go-to for queer women news you’ll actually be excited to read.
The New York Times has a regularly occurring series called “Overlooked No More” that publishes obituaries of remarkable people whose deaths were not originally reported in their paper.

Move over, “Hereditary!” Netflix’s queer horror movie “The Perfection” is getting a lot of attention because the movie is incredibly graphic and disturbing. It’s not for the faint of heart, but those who have braved it say the writing is worth the trauma. Plus, it’s gay!
If your friends have ever told you that you walk too fast and your response was “Move, I’m gay!” then you’re about to lose your mind at this news. According to a study by the University of Leicester in England, people who walk faster are expected to live longer. Fill your friends in once they finally catch up with you.
“Are You The One?” isn’t a new show, but it’s breaking records for doing something new. The MTV reality show is set to return this summer with an extremely queer twist: everyone in the show’s cast identifies as “sexually fluid.” No one’s off-limits, which is (I think) the best way to live.
