Morning Brew – Jillian Michaels shows her “softer side” in “Just Jillian”

on

Good morning! It’s Christmas Eve Eve!

A lesbian allegedly attacked “the vainest main in Britain,” Sam Barton, while at a gay bar. 

President Obama posted about the anniversary of the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and the work we have ahead in LGBT equality.

E! has a new promo of Just Jillian showing Jillian Michaels‘ “softer side.”

The New York Giants hosted a day for LGBT Youth at their game last Sunday.

Congrats to PLL star Sasha Pieterse on her engagement. (Sadly, it’s not to Shay Mitchell.)

Marlene King says Pretty Little Liars will not necessarily end after Season 7, but the “Uber A story” does

Jill Soloway talked feminism and Transparent on Open Mind.

Silas Howard dishes on his Transparent episode where Cherry Jones got nude in the hot tub.

Speaking of Cherry, she’s in a new Hulu series about the day Kennedy was shot, called 11/22/63. The out actress will be playing “Marguerite Oswald, [Lee Harvey] Oswald’s mother who is as needy and difficult as her infamous son.”

Our Faces is a new campaign for and about people that are “Gay, Orthodox Jewish and Proud.”

Christine and the Queens talked about her queerness with TIME:

Yeah, I think my whole character, my whole project is queer in a way. Christine as a stage character is just a way for me to be more daring, to be more out of the box, to be stronger and to use everything that could weigh me down like a fuel, like an energy. For me, she is a writing technique, and a queer one. So yeah, “Tilted” can possibly be a queer song. It’s about embracing who you are. For me, I sometimes was feeling out of place because of my own story and my own way of being a young girl. Because of this I feel really queer sometimes. That can make me feel like an outcast in a way. I think you can project a lot of things on this song, but for me, Christine is a queer character, totally.
