Morning Brew – Root and Shaw tear each other’s clothes of in new “Person of Interest” trailer


Happy Friday!

First thing’s first: We saw only a tiny glimpse of Root and Shaw in a Person of Interest trailer earlier this week, but this extended look at Season 5 has officially knocked us out. SHOOT SHOOT SHOOT!

Lesbian couple Beverly Newell and Kelly Trent have joined in the fight against North Carolina’s HB2 bill, as they were discriminated against at a fertility clinic. One week after the bill passed, the clinic called and let them know they would not be serving same-sex couples, causing them to file a complaint and then participate in the current ACLU lawsuit against the state.

San Francisco photographer Rink‘s photos from the legendary 70s gay revolution are being shown at the Leslie Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art in New York now through June 26. His images are famous and include “the first time that a large, organized group of lesbians marched in what was later known as the San Francisco Pride Parade.”  

Kate McKinnon will star in Laura Steinel‘s Women in Business, alongside Emma Stone and Jillian Bell. The film follows “two competitive women who are sent on a business trip to Canada. There, they hire a third woman off Craigslist to act as their intern, which derails their trip.” 

Kristen Stewart stars in Café Society, Woody Allen‘s new film.

British TV personality Katie Hopkins joked that she’d “swing both ways–given the freedom to do that,” but she’d  “never been offered.” Later, she clarified: “Sadly I am not bisexual. However I say whoop whoop to those that are.”

What if Cinderella’s Prince Charming was raised by a lesbian couple? Only in San Francisco!

Eileen Myles is in the T, New York Times Style Magazine (lesbian chic!) and shared her favorite reads. One of my favorite quotes: “I keep getting called a punk poet in the press, because they can’t say dyke,” 

Also in the issue with Eileen are feminist artists/writers/actors Staceyann Chin, Beth Ditto, Hari Nef, Justin Vivian Bond, Emily Gould, Tavi Gevinson and Porochista Khakpou.

W has a great profile of lesbian artist Nicole Eisenman.

Playwright/TV writer Tanya Saracho has a new show at Starz, and it is relevant to our interests. Pour Vida “follows twin sisters, Brook and Lyn Hernandez, who inherit an East LA building from their recently deceased mother. They open Pour Vida, a new wine and tapas bar, in a building in Boyle Heights which houses a failing lesbian bar below and a village-like collection of Eastside denizens in three units above.” Sounds amazing already.

Young & Hungry is getting a spin-off that will include lesbian food magazine editor Logan Rawlings (Ashley Tisdale) as a regular. She’ll co-star with Aimee Carerro, who will reprise her Y&H role of Sofia Rodriguez.


The cast of The Color Purple paid tribute to Prince last night after their show.

Uproxx talks with Lola Kirke and Breeda Wool about AWOL.

Meet Lourdes Torres, a bad ass Latina lesbian activist, writer, and professor.
