Morning Brew – Angie Harmon is sorry to disappoint you, lesbians

 
 

Good morning everyone!

Jennifer Hepler was a senior write for Bioware and said she used to get a lot of hateful tweets from some video gamers who didn’t like changes made to some of the games she worked on. The only thing that helped? The support from LGBT and female players:

‘The outpouring of support I received — large amounts from female and gay fans — was incredibly heartening. Without the negativity, I’m not sure that I would ever have heard from all of these people confirming that there is a need for characters that tackle touchy social issues, for characters who are untraditional or even unlikeable.”

This just in: Angie Harmon is still not going to play a lesbian on Rizzoli & Isles. Probably ever. Here’s an excerpt from her new MORE cover interview, where she talks about lesbian fans of the show:

“It was like, ‘We’re not going to watch your show because you won’t write them making out’ … Whether we’re gay or straight, it doesn’t matter. We’re all women. We all have the same wonderful situations happen to us, the same horrific situations. We all get our hearts broken.”

I hear some hearts breaking right now.

The New York Times profiled NYC mayoral candidate Christine Quinn‘s wife Kim Catullo, calling her a “reluctant campaigner.”

“I knew that being a woman and being a lesbian and being different — and then all the other reasons — she was going to be a target,” Ms. Catullo continued, adding that she was also nervous about Ms. Quinn’s safety.

“The first woman mayor and a lesbian couple — I mean, that’s going to be an international story,” Ms. Catullo said. “Just the intensity around her candidacy, I can’t imagine what it will be like.”

Actress Sienna Miller likes to french her girlfriends hello.

Two Russian runners, Kseniya Ryzhova and Tatyana Firova, kissed atop the podium after winning races this week. They did it for gay rights, ya’ll! Do you think they planned that ahead of time? “OK, we’ll both win and then we’ll kiss.”
