Well, it's official: Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson are definitely a couple. After months of speculation, Lindsay told Loveline co-host Ted Stryker Monday night that she and Sam have been in a relationship for "a very long time."
Of course, the coming out process is a personal, private decision that needs to be made by the individual, so it makes sense the two would take their time in discussing any personal details with media.
Lesbian/bi pop culture site AfterEllen.com published a timely and well-written story last week entitled "Visibility Matters: Lindsay Lohan and the New Definition of 'Out'". It is a highly-recommended read.
