It was a women fiesta at California's East West Lounge on Tuesday, June 15 when cast and crew of "The Real L Word" came out to celebrate the imminent premiere. A reality show version of Showtime's now-ended "The L Word", "Real L Word" follows six lesbian women in Los Angeles.

Coming to the premiere party were Rose Garcia, Mikey Kauffman, Nikki Weis, Whitney Mixter and Jill Goldstein. The series is supposed to star another woman, Tracy, who did not join the lots on the red carpet. Producer Ilene Chaiken and Rose's girlfriend Natalie were also present along with a bunch of other guests.

Premiering June 20, "Real L World" is about a group of real-life, high-profile, left coast lesbians as they go about their daily lives, at work and play. Two clips are released as previews of the first episode, one showing Whitney bumping into an old flame and another showing Rose having a fight with her girlfriend.

@terra1969. I agree with you. She always tend to leave us out. Maybe she dont understand us. But we are here and we exist. This would had been a great opportunity to include a black woman on this show.

As usual, black women are left out when it comes to Ilene. She either thinks we do not exist or if she ignores us, we will go away. When there is a black character, she offers crappy examples. She made Tasha (from the L Word) ridiculously stereotypical. Does she even try to understand us?

@terra1969: Get over it! This is 2010!! There are black film makers who are lesbian and gay and black film makers who are not gay. We as a people need to stop waiting for others to make films about us, and the miracle that IS us.
