Morning Brew – Heather Morris is coming back to “Glee”

Good morning!

A new study shows that LGBT families are actually healthier than most others. I like those statistics!

Out’s Power List has several new additions this year, including Ellen Page, Megan Ellison, Brittney Griner, Jenna Lyons, Robin Roberts and Roberta Kaplan. Ellen DeGeneres tops the list this year, with Rachel Maddow at number three.

Glamour went to the GLAAD Media Awards and talked with actress Natasha Henstridge, who had this to say:

“It’s nice to keep those things fresh in the minds of the networks and producers that are funding all these things and hearing what people want to see. I’ve [auditioned] for three characters in the last week and a half that are lesbian characters, so clearly this thing has a huge impact. Many gays and lesbians aren’t represented in small towns, so to be represented on TV is huge.”

Hole‘s seminal album Live Through This is 20 years old, and Spin has a great oral history with the bandmates, including out drummer Patty Schemel.

Angel Haze‘s performance of “Same Love” for SBTV is definitely worth watching.

Miranda Otto and Pamela Adlon played a lesbian couple on Rake this week. A lesbian couple that had a threesome with the main male character.

Heather Peace‘s second album, The Thin Line, will be released on on June 9, and she’s describing the first single, “We Can Change,” as her “big gay anthem.” In the meantime,  Peace is giving away a free track – “Lily” – on her website today.
