Morning Brew: Kreayshawn up for Best New Artist at the VMAs, a new track from Melissa Ferrick

Morning!

Rev. Irene Monroe penned a piece for the UK Progressive called “Our Bi-Phobia Placed on Sheryl Swoopes.” Let me know if you agree or disagree. Note she somehow forgot to include Sheryl’s quote from when she came out, “I am not bisexual.”

The New York Times recommends several films to see at NewFest this year, including Circumstance, Old Cats and Mangus, starring Heather Mattarazzo.

If you watched the OWN special Our America WIth Lisa Ling: Pray the Gay Away?, you’ll remember “ex-lesbian” Janet Boyle. Slate profiled her, and the only reason I’m sharing with you is that my LGBT history professor in college encouraged me to always know what my enemies are up to.

Joan as Police Woman has released a new video for “Chemmie.”

Kreayshawn is up for Best New Artist at this year’s MTV VMAS. Lady Gaga also has several nominations. I’m always looking for a reason to watch.

Rosario Dawson‘s mama is a lesbian, and the actress told Shape about acquiring a vegan diet from Mom early on.

My mom was practicing vegan and raw diets years ago, so I understood eating healthy at a young age. We even belonged to the local co-op. I mean, we had Spam too, because we were poor and had to take whatever we could get, but we stopped eating white bread when I was 6.

OK I know it’s a stereotype, but lesbians are really environmentally and health conscious. At least a lot of us are. There could be a worse stereotype!

Melissa Ferrick fans, check out her new song, “Still Right Here.” We’ve got it, well, right here.

Her new album (of the same name) drops Sept. 13.

Marja-Lewis Ryan from The Four-Faced Liar has a play called Dysnomia opening in L.A., like now.
