Morning Brew – Tues. Nov. 20: Gia’s ex-girlfriend remembers her, a new lesbian rom com in the works


Good morning!

Today is National Transgender Day of Remembrance, and if you want to participate, check this site to find a vigil near you.

In some other remembering, out model Gia Carangi died 26 years ago yesterday and her ex-girlfriend Sandy Linter posted several video interviews about Gia’s life. Here’s one in which she shares some memories with model Carol Alt.

You can watch the rest over at Sandy’s YouTube channel.

And if you want to watch even more cool videos, Ellen DeGeneres is part of the MAKERS series and she opens up about growing up, becoming a comedian and coming out. Here’s one to get you started.

A new lesbian romantic comedy called Portrait of a Serial Monogamist is in the works and needs your help to get made. It has a kind of Exes & Ohs vibe to it.

Oh shoot. Look who is stopping by the Chicago Fire station on Thanksgiving? Shay’s ex-girlfriend!
