Morning Brew – Thursday, Feb. 2: Gwyneth Paltrow on her daughter’s fashion sense and sexuality, “Outland” in Australia


Happy Groundhog Day! That little creature is always giving me more winter.

Australia is finally getting Outland, the series about a gay sci-fi fan club, on Feb. 9 and I couldn’t be more jealous. Check out the trailer!

Christine Anu plays Rae, the resident lesbian of the crew. It’s a six part series and I will just have to find it somewhere on the internet if you guys down under tell me it’s worth it.

Melissa Etheridge talked with Diva about her split from Tammy Lynn Michaels for their March issue.

The differences that we had were obviously being magnified through the media and she found that the way to really get back at me, you know, is by throwing a lot of stuff up in the media. It’s unfortunate that it can be used as a weapon. There’s a lot of hurt, a lot of misunderstanding, a lot of sadness…. My biggest challenge is not to be overcome with fear. That relates to everything, whether it was cancer or being gay or divorce or whatever it might be. It is to make my choices not based in fear, although those things can be very fearful.

I wonder if she’s scared that Tammy has a Twitter account now. Let go of the fear, Melissa!

Gwyneth Paltrow was talking about her daughter, Apple, with Harper’s Bazaar and said some sort of crazy things about her fashion sense and sexuality.

I’ve been saving my clothes for her since before she was born. I was like, I’ll bet you anything I’ll have a daughter, and she’ll be a really cool butch lesbian and be so above clothes, and I got a very clothes-obsessed child. So if she’s a lesbian, she’s a lipstick lesbian. She doesn’t like anything avant-garde at all. She likes anything that’s pretty, pretty, pretty or has a bow or a ruffle or is pink.

Gwyn, fashion sense changes over time so Apple could turn out to be the butchest dyke on the block and Shiloh Jolie-Pitt could switch it up and go high-femme. You never know.

Have you checked out Busk Films yet? It’s an online-based lesbian on-demand film service that has way better selection than Netflix when it comes to “Gay & Lesbian Comedies” or any other lez genre, for that matter. Read this interview with its creator, Andrea Wing, if you want to know more about the company.

Lauren Flax of CREEP answers some questions over at SGNY as part of their interview series.

Sinclair Sexsmith (aka Sugarbutch) talked with Judith “Jack” Halberstam over at Lambda Literary and it’s worth reading if you love queer theory.

Come back for lots more later today!
