Morning Brew – Monday, Oct. 3: Amber Heard’s hot new photoshoots, “Arrested Development” returns for another season


Good morning!

If you love lesbian commercials, The Huffington Post has collected some great gay ads for your pleasure. I’m so glad I bought my car from Toyota now.

I’m just wondering how you date someone for years without realizing their true gender identity. Am I wrong in thinking these “I didn’t know she was a girl!” stories are just insane. They should put a TV show on about it, right after I Didn’t Know I was Pregnant so I can watch in awe while screaming at my TV.

Let me tell you about the best news I’ve heard in the last year or so: Arrested Development is coming back. And not only with the movie we’ve been waiting on forever, but 10 new episodes. Of course this means Portia de Rossi will be returning as Lindsay Bluth.

Speaking of,’s blogger wants to know where all of the sitcom lesbians are. Hopefully they are on their way!

Did you say you wanted another photo of Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander? It’s your lucky day.

This movie about Kathleen Hanna needs to be made. It’s called The Punk Singer, it’s by a queer filmmaker named Sini Anderson, and it’s about KATHLEEN HANNA. Please donate your lunch money to make this happen. Obviously they are a lot of queer people in the film because Kathleen has been a driving force for equality/likes to put lesbians in her bands.


Kathleen is one of my style icons. I can’t rock that high pony like she does, though.

The New Civil Rights Movement has a great profile of a lesbian jurist named Alison Nathan. Power lez.

I was offline yesterday and apparently missed a huge Twitter trending topic, “Lesbian for Demi.” It was apparently people who would go gay for pop star Demi Lovato. Is she a new lesbian icon I didn’t know about? Fill me in.

Two new Amber Heard photoshoots have made their way to the web, and I think you’re going to appreciate both of them. There are shots from VS magazine, taken by Ellen Von Unwerth. A little racy at the link!

Not to be outdone by herself, she is also in the LA Times magazine this week
