Morning Brew – Tues. Feb. 5: Doccubus vs. Brittana in Top TV Couples, Ali Mau on not being “a proper dyke”


Good morning! Did you catch the premiere of That Sex Show on Logo last night? I was live tweeting it on the AfterEllen Twitter account and we had a lively debate going on whether you should be able to use sex toys with more than one girlfriend or buy new ones for every partner. I learned so much!

A new Indian film called Ragini MMS 2 has “no lesbian scenes” but “one sensuous kiss between girls.” Alright then.

While at Sundance, director Stacie Passon talked about her film, Concussion. Apparently it’s based on her real life — except for the whole prostitution part. There are also some clips from the movie in the interview below.

Rapper Lord Jamar doesn’t like that Kanye West is gay-friendly. More specifically he says:

Somebody mad at my hashtag/Black man lookin’ half a fag/With a blazer and vest/I’m just amazed at the mess/Pioneer of this queer shit is Kanye West

For every Macklemore, there are 10 of these d-bags.

Speaking of d-bags, Oregon-based baker Aaron Klein refused to make a wedding cake for a lesbian couple. Ace of CakesDuff Goldman said he’d make them a much more rad cake for free. Don’t go to Sweet Cakes Bakery, ya’ll.

Out Kiwi TV personality Ali Mau is bisexual and in engaged to a woman, but says she knows some people still think she’s not “a proper dyke.”

Some people in the [LGBT] community will look at me and think, what a johnny-come-lately. I hope they understand I haven’t tried to swoop in and make myself a spokesperson.

I wonder if I’m a “proper dyke.” The rest of the interview with Stuffis pretty interesting, too.

Seattle based writer Jaimee Garbacik has created a cool graphic novel to answer questions about gender and sexuality. Check out this sample chapter — seems like something worth owning when it comes out this June.

This Sunday the Grammys are going to have a lot of cool queer women up for awards, and there’s one more we didn’t know about. Chaney Sims of the Heritage Blues Orchestra is out and proud, and her band is up for Best Blues Album against Joan Osborne. Now I need to listen to their LP before the ceremony. Thanks to reader MCGirl for sending in the tip!

Of course Rachel Maddow is speaking at SXSW Interactive this year, the year I’m not going. It’s like she’s avoiding me, you guys.

Doccubus are one of the finalists in E!’s Top TV Couples poll. Brittana are, too, but they are broken up so I don’t know how this is all decided other than wishes and dreams.

If you don’t mind that Michelle Rodriguez has internal homophobia, than perhaps you’ll enjoy this image of her from Fast and the Furious 6!
