Good morning! I hope you had a great weekend.
Sia Furler just keeps being her awesome self. She’s the focus of a New York Times piece this week where they discuss how much she hates being in the public eye. She even refused to pose for a photograph. It’s a really great read, though. I love her.
If there’s a third season of Orange is the New Black, sources say that Laura Prepon will definitely be back.
Hayden Panettiere is not going to be a part of the Heroes: Reborn movie, which means you don’t have to watch it. Unless, of course, one of the new characters is queer.
Monica Potter talked with BuzzFeed about how thrilled she was to finally have a gay character on Parenthood.
What a cool mom.
I’m like, “We live in Berkeley!” Even if we didn’t live in Berkeley, I’m like, “C’mon, lets go!” As parents, Kristina and Adam totally get it and totally support it. People were like, “Where’s the drama?” And I’m like, “Sometimes there doesn’t need to be [drama]. They have it in all the other storylines.”
If The Roosevelts: An Intimate History doesn’t include some of Eleanor’s lesbian leanings, then it won’t be that intimate.
The Guardian details the struggles gay and lesbian parents still face with custody cases.
If you’re going to fire a police chief for being a lesbian, you probably shouldn’t be caught on camera being a total homophobe. People are insane.
Jill Sobule talks about the inspiration for her new album in The New York Times.
Also in the Times, Tatiana Maslany is awesome. Speaking of Orphan Black, here’s a great behind-the-scenes look at Season 2.
Abby Wambach told The Windy City Times why she doesn’t want to be a spokesperson for the LGBT community.
The reality for me is that I don’t really try to make statements with things that I do with my life. Not because I don’t believe in it, but, I play sports, and I think there definitely is an avenue and an environment where you can cross over and gain popularity and publicity because of your sport in political arenas, but, I never really was in the closet.
After I turned 22, I was out with my teammates and everyone. It’s interesting now because people were saying last year that Abby finally came out of the closet. But the reality for me was, I never felt like I was in [the closet]. I don’t feel any different because everyone in my life knew.
Beth Ditto talks about her friendship with Kate Moss.
