Morning Brew – Lesbian Couple Featured in Awesome New Ad for Diversity and Love


Good morning!

Out model Erika Linder has some fashions for sale on her new website. No pants for, though, otherwise I would have been able to make a really great joke!


One of my favorite things about this Desiree Akhavan profile in The Standard is the Austin Powers-inspired photo caption: “Oh behave!” BTW Appropriate Behavior is in theaters in the UK now.

A lot of lesbian couples are using IVF to get pregnant. One woman shares her story with the BBC.

Raven-Symoné was a guest co-host on The View yesterday. She’s back today and tomorrow, too!

Next week’s The 100 is the season finale and it looks intense for Clarke and Octavia.

Speaking of, IGN talked with  about the kiss between Clarke and Lexa:

It’s funny, because it was sort of one of those things that people kept telling us… Maybe sly comments along the way or something suggested in earlier scripts, but Eliza and I never really thought it would [happen], so when we read the script, we were like, “Oh, okay. It’s really happening! Okay, cool.” I think we thought that it just happens suddenly, so soon, but I think that’s what makes it so lovely as well, is that it’s this passion and this desire and this solace that they find in each other, which is so lovely. I think it is something so different and unique for a lot of teen shows and I love that we can represent a broad variation of people on this show. I think it’s so wonderful that the network has allowed us to do that. I think it’s great.


Sharp Heels has an interview with Cameron Esposito. (Related side note: When do lesbians stop becoming “the future of comedy?” I think they’re pretty present! Just me? Dating a comic might make me biased.)

BuzzFeed went to Lesbians in Tech last week in San Francisco and asked some of the attendees what they learned.

Did you know that if you are a lesbian, you are obviously a terrible tutor? You obviously only teach lesbianism.

In case you haven’t seen this yet, it’s lesbian skeletons making out to “Same Love”! An adorable ad with all kinds of people just being PEOPLE.

Here’s what homophobia sounds like to normal people.
