Morning Brew – Anne Ramsay and Ellen Barkin hook up on “Animal Kingdom”


Good morning!

Let’s start with some music. You can watch Savages perform a live stage show on NPR.

Sleater-Kinney make a guest appearance in Courtney Barnett‘s new video for “Elevator Operator.”

“Hands” is a song for Orlando featuring Mary J Blige, Jason Derulo, Tyler Glenn, Selena Gomez, Halsey, Ty Herndon, Imagine Dragons, Adam Lambert, Mary Lambert, Jennifer Lopez, Juanes, Kacey Musgraves, MNEK, Alex Newell, P!nk, Prince Royce, Nate Ruess, RuPaul, Troye Sivan, Jussie Smollett, Britney Spears, Gwen Stefani, Meghan Trainor, and the Trans Chorus of Los Angeles. You can download the track from iTunes right now.

Mary Lambert talks about her musical journey and her emotional performance after the Orlando shootings on Oprah’s Where Are They Now?

The cast of Fun Home is performing a show in Orlando.

San Francisco’s queer youth are facing a housing issue.

Out actress Brianna Hildebrand has joined the cast of Tragedy Girls, a film that “follows two death-obsessed teenage girls who use their online show about real-life tragedies to send their small Midwestern town into a frenzy and cement their legacy as modern horror legends.” 

Ugh, Joss Whedon‘s most soul-crushing moments.

The lesbian couple found guilty of killing their own son have been sentenced to life in prison.

A gay nurse asks Miss Manners how to handle personal questions from patients at work.

Former child stars Erin Murphy (Bewitched) and Alison Arngrim (Little House on the Prairie) play wives in a new pilot called Life Interrupted.


Watch the Season 5 premiere of Aussie web series Starting from Now.

Last night on TNT’s Animal Kingdom, Anne Ramsay (The L Word) guest starred as a photographer who has some information on someone Ellen Barkin is looking for.

So of course they sleep together!

No word on if Anne will be back on the show, but it’s likely Smurf (Ellen) just used her to find out who the dude in the photo was. And now she’s going to track him down and most likely kill him.
