Morning Brew – Mon. April 8: A lesbian proposes “Glee” style, Karina Hermosillo is a lesbian up for “Our Latin Beauty”

 
 

Good morning!

The Fenway Institute found that “lesbians and bisexual women are as likely as heterosexual women to develop cervical cancer, but are much less likely to be regularly screened for it, putting them at greater risk of the potentially deadly disease.” Get thee to a gyno!

If you’re hemming and hawing over joining lesbian dating site, Buzzfeed gives you reasons to just do it.

Australian teen actress Brenna Harding won Most Popular New Female Talent award at the Logies for her role in Puberty Blues, and she thanked her two moms from the stage.

I especially have to thank two women — my beautiful mothers, Vicki and Jackie, who have been so incredibly supportive, and so wonderful, not just in the last three months of shooting, but in all of my 16 years. Thanks so much, mums.

Two stage moms are better than one.

Out lesbian Karina Hermosillo is a finalist on Univision’s Nuestra Belleza (Our Latin Beauty), a reality show about a beauty competition. Karina proudly reps for the LGBT community. Thanks to AE reader jazzmeane for the tip!

Need some new underwear? Check out Play Out, a lesbian-owned company based in NYC.

If you’re in Los Angeles, please do me a huge favor and go to see Femmes: A Tragedy at The Lyric-Hyperion Theatre & Cafe. Gina Young‘s play is “a contemporary lesbian adaptation of Clare Booth Luce’s 1936 play The Women.” Here’s the setup:

When a community organizer’s polyamorous girlfriend drops her overnight for a hot bartender, her friends — an activist, an academic and a party promoter — are thrown into girl/girl competition despite their best feminist intentions, and are ultimately forced to parse the ways butch/femme relationships do or don’t replicate heterosexual stereotypes.

If you’re a Glee fan, you’ll probably tear up over this Warbler-themed proposal. Congrats to Ann and Jackie!

Out lesbians Bria and Chrissy have a song for your straight friends: “The Final Four – How to Please Your Man.”

Here’s some video footage from this year’s Dinah celesbian dodgeball tournament.

Tabatha Coffey talked lesbian style stereotypes with HuffPost Life.

It bothers me because I don’t know what we’re “supposed” to look like. I just don’t get it and I hate stereotypes whatever they are… all we can keep doing is showing all the different varieties of us, proudly.

So she’s saying I shouldn’t have chopped off my hair into a pixie and bleached it?

’80s actress Lydia Cornell supports her lesbian sister. She even quotes Suze Orman, so you know it’s real.

A lesbian couple is among those dancing to this cheesy Macklemore song in a new Nordstrom commercial.
