Morning Brew – Mon. Feb. 4: Beyonce’s back-up dancers wear lesbian-made pieces, k.d. lang on “How I Met Your Mother” tonight


Good morning! How about that game? And Beyonce with her all female band? Gotta love Bey Bey. A fun fashion fact: The back-up dancers were wearing some pieces made by out fashion designer Becca McCharen from her brand CHROMAT. They’re called pentagram harnesses, and you can get one of your own for $188.

While we’re on the topic of fashion, VEER NYC wants your help to fund their androgynous fashion line.

Jane Lynch wants you join her for a VIP trip to Disneyland. You can bid online or attend the Family Equality Council’s Los Angeles Awards Dinner this coming Saturday to bid in person.

She’s not in this clip but k.d. lang will be a guest star on tonight’s very Canadian episode of How I Met Your Mother.


Director Micah Fink has a new documentary about a lesbian mother and a gay male activist living in homophobic Jamaica. It’s called An Abominable Crime and they are raising money to help complete the film on Kickstarter.


Meanwhile France is one step closer to legalizing same-sex marriage. Hurrah!

NBC News has a piece on Tracy Johnson, a member of the United States military who lost her wife in battle and is now fighting for military benefits. It’s a great read, but it’s a little infuriating!

Equally as infuriating, having to live in a world where people constantly ask “Who is the real mother?”

Out UFC fighter Liz Carmouche was interviewed about her fans (“Lizbos”), bringing more lesbians to the sport and her upcoming fight.


MTV interviewed Buckwild‘s resident bisexual Cara Parrish. She said she was a little nervous about coming out in her town of Sissonville, but everyone has been supportive. Her biggest pet peeve, though:

The one that bothers me the most is when people say that girls aren’t actually bisexual. This is so ignorant! People think that girls aren’t really bisexual or lesbian, that they do it for attention. That really bothers me a lot. Obviously my relationship with my ex-girlfriend was a long relationship. It was very emotional. For somebody to try to tell me that a relationship I spent years of my life in…I did that for attention…it’s one of the worst feelings.

I think it’s great she came out on the show!
