Does Melissa Etheridge have it all over Ellen? Does Doogie put Lance to shame? Bravo's OUTzoneTV.com broadband channel is launching a poll on Friday, Dec. 8, seeking to crown the "Sexiest Gay Celebrity of 2007." In addition to the aforementioned foursome, nominees include Project Runway's Tim Gunn, filmmaker Pedro Almodovar, Scissor Sisters' Jake Shears, Shortbus driver John Cameron Mitchell, decorator-to-Oprah Nate Berkus, former Bassmaster Reichen Lehmkuhl, Portia de Rossi, and singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright. Apparently, T.R. Knight will have to rely on the write-in vote.

Showtime's look at L.A. lesbian life, The L Word (returning for Season 3 on Sunday at 10 pm/ET), remedies that with a new character named Moira/Max, nutty Jenny's (Mia Kirshner) latest squeeze. We interviewed Daniela Sea, an actor active in New York's downtown art scene, about playing a girl who wants to be a boy.
