Morning Brew – Jodie Foster auditions for Han Solo

on

Good morning! Let’s get through this Monday together.

Activist and scholar Urvashi Vaid was named the Sexiest Lesbian Alive during a recent competition in Provincetown.

Julie Bindel wants a lesbian Bond, and she wants her now.

Don’t get too jealous watching Tegan and Sara‘s video for “BWU,” directed by Clea DuVall.

So that lesbian storyline is still going on General Hospital, and if you want some spoilers, it looks like Kristina is finally coming out to the rest of her family.

Vulture went on the set of I Love Dick, from EP Jill Soloway and out writer Sarah Gubbins.

A New York City cab driver who harassed a lesbian couple being affectionate in his backseat has been ordered to pay them $14,000 and not a penny less.

I had no idea about SCWU, did you? We can probably all learn from a film about it, then.

Amanda Bearse chats with GoWeho about working with Kate McKinnon on My Big Gay Sketch Show and her new Tello series, Skirtchasers.

The Root wants more people to appreciate Survivor’s Remorse, and Erica Ash‘s M-Chuck is a part of it.

The Telegraph interviews UK presenter/producer Anna Richardson but this headline, ugh: “Anna Richardson on the power of naked attraction and leaving her partner for Sue Perkins (but don’t call her a lesbian).”

Jason Rothenberg disappointed The 100 fans once more with this tidbit from Comic-Con:

“Lexa is not coming back to the show. She won’t be in season four. But the Flame is an important thing. It’s a political artifact.”

Also at Comic-Con, Steven Universe creator Rebecca Sugar came out as bisexual during a panel discussion on the show’s LGBT themes.

I’m Bisexual, But I Would Never Date a Woman.” 

If you love Amandla Stenberg‘s jewelry, W has some ideas on how to accessorize just like her.

Robin Williams‘ daughter Zelda Williams is proud of being bisexual and plays a transgender counselor on Freeform’s Dead of Summer.

V interviews Christine of Christine and the Queens.

Out bisexual essayist/novelist Roxane Gay is co-writing a Black Panther companion series for Marvel called World of Wakanda with Ta-Nahisi Coates.

Jodie Foster would have made an amazing Han Solo, but she definitely should never have to audition for anything. Ever.
