Good morning and Happy Wednesday!
This week was a huge Hunger Games: Catching Fire premiere and out producer Nina Jacobson and costume designer Trish Summerville stunned on the red carpet.
Speaking of Trish (great name!), she talked with Vanity Fair about working on the crazy amazing costumes for the film. She also designed an entire “Capitol Couture” collection for net-a-porter that comes out tomorrow. No guarantees you’ll look like Jennifer Lawrence!
While we’re talking fashion, this could be a great gift idea for the dapper butch in your life.

Michelle Rodriguez talked with Latina about why she finally decided to mention that she was bisexual. Here’s what she had to say:
I’m getting older. Eventually it’s going to wrinkle up and I’m not going to be able to use it. I wanted to be honest about who I am and see what happens.
I wonder what she thought would happen. The world did not explode.
Fine, Elaine Huguenin. You don’t have to photograph beautiful lesbian weddings. We’d rather not give you our money anyway. Sigh.

How rad is Angel Haze? She was inspired to write a recent verse based on a poem by out spoken word performer Andrea Gibson. What other contemporary rapper would you hear say that?
Speaking of Andrea, she’s on tour this December.
Former American Idol contestant Crystal Bowersox has recorded a song for LGBTQ youth called “Coming Out For Christmas.” Crystal said of the single:
“The holidays are here, and it pains me to think that anyone would be left alone or be forbidden to be with their family over something as silly as their sexual orientation. I hope it will serve as a holiday anthem for people who may finally have the courage to live their life as their true authentic self, proudly and unapologetically, and that their friends and family will love and accept them with loving open arms. May we all celebrate this holiday season together, celebrate equality, and give thanks for the true spirit of Christmas- with our one human family.”
Here’s the song and a video with lyrics for you to cry to.
Ellen DeGeneres thinks it’s so dumb that Hallmark removed the word “gay” from “Deck the Halls.” For the record, Hallmark, I would have bought one that said GAY on it! I’d also buy the one Ellen made.
