"The Lphabet is a really fun way to explore the idea of diversity in the lesbian and bi community, as the series demonstrates how we all see things"
TotallyHer Media’s AfterEllen (http://www.afterellen.com), the largest site for lesbian and bi women, announced the launch of The Lphabet, a new original series that seeks to define and demystify terms from the lesbian and bi community through the hilarious musings of seven experts (indulging comedians, writers and actors).
Each episode is dedicated to one letter in the alphabet and covers terms from the lesbian lexicon beginning with the segment’s specified letter. New episodes will appear on AfterEllen.com each Tuesday.
“The Lphabet is a really fun way to explore the idea of diversity in the lesbian and bi community, as the series demonstrates how we all see things - like 'androgynous' and 'girl crush' - so differently. Bringing in a group of seven LGBT women with various identities and backgrounds really made for a fun social experiment,” said Trish Bendix, Editor-in-Chief of AfterEllen.com. “Hopefully, this original series will create a conversation about what words and labels mean to us.”
“The first two episodes of The Lphabet illustrate why AfterEllen is a digital leader in the lesbian and bi community. Trish has done an amazing job of compiling a funny group of women who inform, educate, and entertain the audience,” said Rebecca Schmitt, Vice President and General Manager of TotallyHer Media.
“At TotallyHer Media, we are excited to watch this wildly popular site grow, and we couldn’t be more proud of The Lphabet as a premium original series.”

The original rainbow flag, called the Freedom Flag, was devised by Gilbert Baker in 1978. The design has undergone several revisions since its debut with 8 colored stripes, and today the most common variant consists of 6 stripes: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet.
