Out actress and Fun Home star Roberta Colindrez has joined the cast of Amazon’s new polyamory pilot I Love Dick. The show is being adapted by out playwright Sarah Gubbins and produced by Jill Soloway. Roberta will play “Devon, a butch cowboy and amateur playwright who works as groundskeeper on the property Chris and Sylvere are renting in Marfa. She is instantly drawn to Chris, but she’s waiting for the couple to come to some sort of agreement before she makes her move.”

Check out four remixes of Tegan and Sara‘s “Boyfriend,” including one from Shura, whose new single “What’s it Gonna Be” is now available as well. Tegan and Sara also chatted with The Fader about their experiences with boyfriends:

Sara: I had my first boyfriend in the third grade. I always had boyfriends. I had serious relationships when I was a teenager, but after I got out of high school, I never had a serious boyfriend again. I came out, and I’ve only partnered with women since that point. But I definitely have always had very intimate relationships with men, and I think that’s where those lines can be very blurry. For me, I’ve always approached my relationships with men almost as if I was a man. But that can be very disarming. You can have an intimacy that can be very confusing. Though I cherish the relationships with my guy friends, I’ve had to create a unique set of boundaries with guys as I’ve gotten older. Because I think at some point, it can be very challenging not to get feelings for people when you’re so close to them, so it’s not their fault. But Tegan and I have these horrifying pictures of ourselves in third grade, on our first date with these two boys whom asked us out. They brought us each a flower, and then we went to Dairy Queen.

Logo will be premiering a documentary about Seattle’s The If Project, a really cool program that helps women in one Washington prison find their way through writing and expressing themselves. It was co-founded by out police officer Kim Bogucki, who figures prominently in the film.
