Morning Brew – Rosie Perez reveals her teenage relationship with a female friend at TrevorLive

on

Good morning! A huge congrats to Mexico on their legalizing equal marriage!

Rosie Perez was part of TrevorLIVE in New York this week and spoke about being a “questioning teen” when she had a friend who she just wanted to “hump” all the time. 

“Every human being, whether they want to admit it or not, went through a period of questioning. I know I did. … I suppressed the urge and suppressed the urge and suppressed the urge until Michelle one day started humping on me. I’m not the only one that went through this questioning period. I’m not the only one that suppressed those feelings. I’m a quasi-straight person. I still went through that period. And I thought I was all alone. That hurt kept me silent and that silence brought shame. I didn’t have a community. I didn’t have The Trevor Project.” 

She was joined by a bunch of other ladies who have expressed interest in humping other women, including her co-host on The View, Raven-Symone and Susan Sarandon.

Speaking of Miss Susan Sarandon, she expressed how much she loves gender fluidity while oOprah’s Master Class.

Ruby Rose talks about gender fluidity with Elle.

 There’s a line in OITNB where Stella is making fun of Piper, saying like “Ugh. Women – can’t live with them, can’t live without them.” Piper’s like, “What? You don’t consider yourself to be a woman?” Stella says, “I do, but that’s only because my options are limited.” It’s a very small line, but what I really read from that is that she is a woman – obviously, she’s in a female prison – but if she had it her way, she probably wouldn’t be. But, what’s her option? To transition to a guy and then be in a men’s prison would be incredibly dangerous. The takeaway is that only you know who you were born to be, and you need to be free to be that person.

Jennifer Beals talked about The L Word while on HuffPost Live this week.

“There was always my secret hope, even when we were shooting the pilot, that it might be helpful to some young girl out there who identified as lesbian who maybe didn’t have access to a larger community and might be able to see herself represented in some way as a real human being rather than being a trope on some film or television show.”
