Morning Brew – Three more women confirmed dead in Pulse tragedy

on

Good morning. Today feels like a very somber one after waking up to the news of what happened in Orlando yesterday and trying to process it all while also trying to celebrate Pride. Other people celebrated weddings or graduations or other milestones, all trying to rectify how we go on after something like this, and I think we’re all still grieving and figuring out what will happen for our community now. This hate crime has shaken us all, and if you need any additional support or are struggling, please visit the Trevor Project. There are also vigils being held all over the country.

The Orlando Sentinel remembers the victims, including KJ Morris. There are some great videos of KJ performing as Daddy K, her drag king alter-ego, both solo and as part of her troupe the King St. Boiz. What a tragic loss of such a talented person who is being mourned by so many.

Three more women of color have been confirmed dead: 32-year-old Deonka Deidra Drayton, 25-year-old Amanda Alvear and 26-year-old Mercedez Marisol Flores.

IndieWire enjoyed Hannah Hart‘s new film with Grace Helbig. An excerpt:

Hart is an out lesbian with a funky, asymmetrical haircut. Even if said haircut were written into the script, odds are a major studio would have cast a conventionally feminine actress and thrown a wig on her. And that’s important. Hart’s mere presence on any screen showcases alternative gender presentations, however subtle they may be.
