Morning Brew – Lady Gaga shows up for Orlando at LA Vigil


Good morning. Hope you are holding up OK in the wake of this tragedy in Orlando.

I went to the vigil in Los Angeles last night and it helped. Lady Gaga came out to help share some inspiring words and read some of the names of the deceased, including Kimberly “KJ” Morris.

A brief history of attacks on gay and lesbian bars

The National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs found that murders of LGBT people went up in the last year, even prior to Orlando. 

Orlando was most definitely a hate crime against LGBT people.

At Time: The Revolutionary Role of the Gay Bar in American History.

The Advocate followed one young woman’s day at Pride after learning about Orlando.

Not all of the victims were out or LGBT.

Melissa Etheridge has written a song about Orlando.

“I’m hoping I can just drop it because that’s what heals me – just feeling like I can put some ointment on this. You know, this sort of lets you realize that, yes, it was a gay club and it was a club filled with the sons and daughters, you know, and human beings of all races, all ages. It had to be everybody, so, yeah, we’re gonna do some healing because that’s what our community does. I think that was our path from the beginning.”

Ruby Rose shares her thoughts on the massacre.

What it’s like to be a lesbian in Iran. And Russia.

Mara Wilson of Mrs. Doubtfire fame says she embraces the bisexual label for herself, noting she’s a “2” on the Kinsey scale.

Out director Phllyida Lloyd‘s all-female Taming of the Shrew is one of the most lesbian retellings of Shakespeare to ever hit the stage and I’m happy about it.

Things No One Tells You About Lesbian Pregancy  is an uplifting read: “No books or mommy blogs could prepare me for this wonderful adventure Krissy and I are on.”

Lena Waithe writes about the importance of finding your style for Lenny.
