Features Lena Dunham Talks Subverting Hollywood Gender Norms, Why She Calls Jack Antonoff Her 'Partner' and the Influence of Her Sister's Queerness

"Suited" is the perfect fit for Lena Dunham. Producer of the thought-provoking documentary about the powerful relationship between fashion and identity, Dunham knows firsthand that bending the gender rules by wearing a suit can be a transformative experience. During this year's annual Met Gala, the multi-hyphenate - actor, author, director, social activist, feminist, out and proud proponent of the word "no" - rocked an androgynous look, sporting black-tie attire and slicked-back hair as if she were GQ's next cover model. The masc moment was classic Dunham - meaning, yet another strong statement. Known for roles in "The L Word," in addition to her HBO series "Girls," the 30-year-old has made it her life's mission to tear down societal standards. READ MORE.

As a gay adolescent internalizing the "feeling there's no one completely the same," as the song goes, my already-strong bond to the chart-topper, the diva, the survivor - my musical salvation, my "it gets better" - was strengthened.

First the screwdriver, then the peanut butter. But Lea DeLaria's love for "Orange Is the New Black" goes beyond the craftiness of her shenanigans with both a hand tool and a classic sandwich spread as a regular on TV's Emmy-winning prison drama. Sure, Netflix has afforded the veteran actress a deep cargo-pocket of outrageous antics, but "Orange" isn't only here for your amusement. More importantly, the show, and DeLaria's riotous, randy character, Big Boo, are part of the show's heralded inclusivity. READ MORE.

Q&A: Ladyhawke on Coming Out, Marriage-Inspired New Album & Why Orlando Feels 'Very Close to Home'

Here comes the bride... and the other bride. It was as simple as that for Pip Brown, whose stage moniker is Ladyhawke. The New Zealand-born indie popster flew under the gaydar until 2015, when she announced her marriage to actress Madeleine Sami. During the six years leading up to the couple's wedding, the 36-year-old musician, known for intoxicating synthpop earworms like "My Delirium" and "Paris Is Burning," was writing about the "highs and lows" of their partnership. The result? Her third studio album, "Wild Things," a buoyant love-smacked delight. READ MORE.
