Firstly, a huge congrats to Brandi Carlile for tying the knot to partner Catherine Shepherd this past Saturday. The two married in Boston, where they made it legal, and will have two more celebrations coming up in Seattle and London. I can’t wait to see photos of what they wore.
Here’s what else happened over the weekend. Naya Rivera won her second and third ALMA awards for favorite TV comedy actress and favorite female musician.
Carrie Brownstein and Karey Dornetto attended the Creative Arts Emmys.
As did Dot Marie Jones.
The Atlantic has a post called How to Tell That a Show is Past its Expiration Date and cites some of our favorites as having jumped the shark early on. I admittedly watched The O.C. until the end, and I’m sure many of you stuck with Buffy, despite the fact she did, indeed, die twice.
Clare Balding talked with The Times about lesbian visibility on UK TV.
I miss the Olympics, too, Clare! But I’m psyched to read her book, My Animals and Other Family. She spoke with The Guardian about the memoir. A quote:
X-Factor UK hopeful Jade Ellis is a mom of a 6-year-old and a lesbian. She also seems to fancy judge/mentor Nicole Sherzinger, which could be really interesting.
Speaking of lesbian moms, a Florida pair won the lottery! Congrats to Tarra Tuttle and Cary Tullos on getting 10 million dollars for trying their luck. I didn’t fare so well in Vegas last weekend.
