Morning Brew: Friday, May 28

Hi guys!

We’ll be off Monday for Memorial Day but we’ll have a few new things for you, including a Skins recap.

The London Evening-Standard talked with director Noel Clarke about his new film 4.3.2.1 which includes the character, Kerrys, “a half-Brazilian lesbian who karate kicks a handbag thief while wearing a fishnet top and a denim skirt the size of a SIM card.” (Said SIM card is far-right below.)

Keeys is played by Shanika Warren-Markland, and a review of the film from The Guardian notes: “Clarke puts in a fair few steamy sex scenes, and some sapphic moments very obviously targeted at the male DVD-buyers out there.” So it is probably very unrealistic and soft porn-esque, but you might like that sort of thing.

Here’s the trailer, where you can get a glimpse of the girl-on-girlness.

Speaking of trailers, this one’s a little different. It’s for a short film called The Bedwetter and follows an 11-year-old girl that is very out of place. You’ll see what I mean!

OK, one last trailer! Bloomington will open at the Frameline Film Festival in San Francisco next month, and hopefully come to a LGBT fest near you soon!

All these gay teacher-student love stories and no one secures the rights to use “Hot for Teacher?”

E! Online thinks Sandra Bullock‘s showing up at the MTV Movie Award guarantees she’ll kiss another woman on stage. Right now you can vote for who you’d like to see her kiss, the options being Katy Perry, Cameron Diaz, Kristen Stewart or someone of your own choosing. I don’t think she has a relationship with any of them like she does with Meryl Streep, so don’t get your hopes up.

Jennifer Knapp says she understands why some of her peers in the Christian music industry have cut ties with her after she came out last month.

“Just by talking with me, an individual whose livelihood depends on their perceived ‘holiness’ can come into question,” she told a reporter. “Publicly, I’m napalm, and I’m handled with care.” I think some of the people she associates with should learn the true meaning of Christianity. It seems that Jennifer has gotten the idea of “love thy neighbor” down pat.

Jen Foster went on Fox News in Nashville to performand talk about an upcoming benefit for the flooding happening in her city. (Thanks AE reader cserri!)

Ming-Na told USA Weekend that she’s passed the geek gene onto her daughter, who named her hamster “Star Wars.”

When asked about her own lesbian character on Stargate Universe, Camille Wray, a “geek girl’s dream come true.” That’s right — just ask our very own Weekly Geek!

Last night were the LAMBDA Literary Awards and among the winners were Rhiannon Argo for The Creamsickle, Ariel Gore for Portland Queer: Tales of the Rose City and Joan Schenkar for her incredible biography of Patricia Highsmith. Check out a full list of winners and them read all of the nominees for a good time.

Lesbian chef Susan Feniger talked with RealityWanted about her time on Top Chef Masters. When asked about being the last female standing before getting the ax this week, she said:

I have worked with men for so long in this industry and I don’t really find myself thinking in that way. I sort of see us all as chefs, and it doesn’t really play in the picture for me. It just isn’t something that comes into my mind set.

Instead, she’s concentrated on what’s next for her, which includes the expansion of her Border Grills, a cookbook, and fundraising events for the Scleroderma Research Foundation and the Gay and Lesbian Center of Los Angeles. Don’t worry about her — she’s got a lot on her plate!

BlogHer has published a piece from a self-proclaimed “asexual lesbian.” It’s a very interesting read and will you give you some thoughts on sex vs. sexuality.

Last month, there were rumors that totally hip lesbian mom Sara Gilbert would be part of a new View-like talk show alongside Julie Chen and Sharon Osbourne.

We tried to confirm with Sara’s publicist, who said it wasn’t true. Well now it’s in the news again, and New York magazine is saying CBS is giving the pilot a go, and will also include Holly Robinson-Peete.

Please let this be true! Stop destroying my dreams, publicists! I swear that’s in their job descriptions: Kill dreams of hopeful lesbians.

One last thing: We’re going to have an interview with Ilene Chaiken and the women of The Real L Word before the premiere June 20. We want to ask your questions! What do you want to know about the show or these women? Give it to us in the comments, via Twitter or shoot us an e-mail. Don’t hold back!

Have a great, long weekend.
