Morning Brew – Friday, Nov. 11: Jessica Lowndes releases “I Wish I Was Gay,” Barbara Grier dies at 78


It’s Friday! Happy Veteran’s Day to all of you who have served. I love a woman in uniform.

Let’s start out with this video from 90210 actress Jessica Lowndes. It’s called, I kid you not, “I Wish I Was Gay.”


First of all, Jessica, “girls just don’t behave that way”? Lesbians are not exempt from cheating. Second, I don’t think you are punishing that guy, like, at all.

Weeds has been renewed for an eighth season. Will Nancy date another woman? Will we ever see Isabelle again? You never know with that show.

Annise Parker was reelected as Houston’s mayor this week! Here she is talking about her first crush (an older woman!):


Were you a fan of sister duo Disappear Fear? They’re going back on tour. And out lez SONiA still insists on writing her name that way.

If you can never get enough of Evan Rachel Wood, it’s your lucky day close to every other day. Here’s a new interview with her about The Ides of March and Mildred Pierce.


I just want to be friends with her. Is this possible?

Mikey Koffman posted this video of her walking out on the runway at L.A. Fashion Week and I got kind of nostalgic for a time when The Real L Word was just one shi–y season and I never had to know what a Deb was. (I still don’t really get it, but I know a Deb, and she’s good people.)


I’m so sad to hear that Barbara Grier has passed. The lesbian activist was behind the groundbreaking book Lesbian Nuns: Breaking Silence. But what I owe so much to is her position as the editor of The Ladder, the first ever lesbian magazine. She later founded Naiad Press, which published several lesbian-themed and feminist books before it was sold to Bella Books. Barbara was 78.
