Haley Ramm (Chasing Life) and Keke Palmer (Scream Queens) are playing girlfriends in a film called Pimp, and Keke is the pimp in question. According to Deadline, the couple “dream of a better life and hope to get out of the one they’re in.” Also cast, strangely, is DMX, who has not been a friend to the LGBT community. Written and directed by Christine Crokos, the film is currently being shot in the Bronx.

Ellen Page is on the cover of Brooklyn magazine this month. On coming out:

“First of all, I thought everyone knew,” she says. “But it was still probably one of the most nerve-wracking and emotional moments in my life. It’s interesting, because I thought, ‘Oh, I’m okay, I’m not carrying anything anymore, I’ve dealt with this!’ And then I had to read [that speech] so many times so I was able to get through it. There is something shocking about it that in a way it was a good experience to have, because we can sometimes forgot where we are storing a lot of that emotion.”
