Morning Brew – Tilda Swinton has gay pride


Good morning! I hope your Fourth of July was everything you wanted it to be, maybe more.

If you’re in Portland, you need to go see Fortune Feimster at Helium Comedy Club where she’ll be performing four shows over the weekend, beginning tonight at 7:30. See you there!

The New York Times wrote about brides who want to wear pants, aka how you can find clothes that fit you! Brands Tomboy Tailors, Fourteen and Marimacho are featured, as is the Butch Clothing Company but I have to say, this last one hasn’t boded well for a few people I’ve known, my wife included. Just FYI! Try one of the other three.

Speaking of lesbian-owned brands you should support, Sloane & Tate are in this month’s NYLON magazine. Underwear for you and yours!

One year after her famous Largo show, Tig Notaro will return to the same stage for “Tig Has Friends.” Get your tickets to see what kind of huge life announcement she will be making this time around.

Brookside‘s lesbian kiss is one of The Independent‘s Top 10 TV Moments in Pictures.


Pat Griffin, director of Changing the Game: The GLSEN Sports Project, talked with the Dallas Voice about what bullshit it is that Jane Lwas not as celebrated as Jason Collins for coming out because she’s in women’s sports.

Amber Heard is looking gorgeous in BULLETT magazine this month, where she talks about “the adults in her life” who get mad at her for being so open about things like her bisexuality.


Jessie J has quit The Voice UK to focus on her new record. I guess that’s a good enough excuse!

I learned some new things about Jane Lynch from this list, like “23. I played Amelia Earhart in The Aviator and was cut out of the movie. 24. As a kid, I wanted to be a boy. 25. I still kind of want to be a boy.”

Tilda Swinton wants everyone to see this photo of her in front of the Kremlin in Russia and read this message: “In solidarity. From Russia with love.” Sigh, she’s so dreamy.


Analousia Valencia is the first out lesbian to enter the chance to be Miss South Carolina. She’s such a babe!

Katie Stelmanis of Austra and I have the same feelings about the movie Side Effects. The out singer said of the film:

And there was like a lesbian moment, and I was excited about the lesbian moment. But it was so fleeting, and obviously not real. Plus, the lesbians betray each other within minutes.

She’s also been watching High Art and the riot grrrl film Don’t Need You. Why aren’t we best friends yet? Lez band Dollhouse Riot covered Miley Cyrus‘s new song “We Can’t Stop.”
