Casting for Project Top Lesbian! Disclaimer: I cannot tell if this is a for realz casting call or not. But the girls at autostraddle re-posted a post from the girls at boxedlunchlalesbians. In an effort to do due diligence, I googled for any other refrence for this, as well as checked the Magic Elves website, which doesn't appear to have been updated lately. Turned up nothin'.

“THE REAL L WORD: Los Angeles”
Are you and your friends proof the The L Word exists in real life? Do you want to be part of groundbreaking television? The L Word was a runaway iconic hit, affecting millions of lives – imagine what the real life version will do!
From Showtime, Golden Globe winner Ilene Chaiken (The L Word) and Magical Elves (Peabody Award-winning Project Runway & Emmy-nominated Top Chef) comes a documentary series about the real lives of lesbians.
THE REAL L WORD: Los Angeles will follow a group of real-life, high-profile, left coast lesbians as they go about their daily lives, at work and play. The producing team plans to show viewers that the cast can be every bit as glamorous, fashionable, fabulous and even as cutthroat as their celebrated-but-fictional counterparts.
They are currently seeking ladies from all walks of life to be the pioneering voices in this important series. Must be based in Los Angeles or moving soon to the area. They want all types, from the power of Bette to the mojo of Shane.
Are you and your partner about to adopt? Do all the bouncers in WeHo know your name? Do you consider your friends family? Are you coming out of the closet and want to help others by sharing your journey? Are you or someone you know moving out to the more Sapphic-ly welcoming culture of L.A.? Are you a card-carrying ‘power lesbian’?
Whatever your story, whatever your situation - they want to hear from you! Email firstname.lastname@example.org; tell them about yourself, and include a recent photo
Lastly, a quote from the girls at autostraddle, who are in L.A. Theycompiled quotes from a pile of WeHo lesbians who say, “'Everyone in this town really dislikes that woman [IC] and no one is even talking about that show out here.' Except us, obvs, as we are TOTAL DORKS."
Now I leave you to debate the relevance of this nugget off the lesbian phone tree. And P.S., to the intrepid girls of austostraddle, we don't think you're dorks. It's been a slow lesbian news week. Now at least there is something to bitch about.
