Morning Brew – Tues. Feb. 26: “Catfish” reunion gets queer, Tilda Swinton in David Bowie’s new androgynous video


Good morning!

Last night on the Catfish reunion special, expert catfishers Chelsea came out as a lesbian, officially, and Rose said she once was catfished by a girl she was in love with online. This is not a good look for us gay chicks, but I have to say I love how this show is so queer by accident.

This new David Bowie video is NSFW toward the end, but it’s very queer and androgynous starring Tilda Swinton and models Saskia de Brauw and Andrej Pejic. The Runaways director Floria Sigismondi is behind the short film/music video.

Kevin, a gay llama farmer, was fired from his job as a teacher for being gay, because that’s still legal to do in Kentucky. Now he’s scared he won’t be able to feed all of the animals on his farm, and someone has set up a donation fund in his name. Thanks for pointing this out Heather Hogan!

Sue Perkins talked about her new sitcom Heading Out with The Sun, saying it’s not “a gay” show.

Most of my friends are married with children, that’s my world. I don’t live in a gay ghetto. My end goal has always been to be known for what I do, not for who I sleep with.

And I think that should be the goal of any gay person — to be fully integrated in the community. Because it’s only that way you can stop bullying and homophobia. The more you present yourself as compatible and not different — just as boring, uptight and weird as everyone else — the better.

I refuse to present myself as boring and uptight, but weird is fine!
