Morning Brew – Fri. Sept. 14: Target’s lesbian brides, Freja is the new face of Maybelline New York


It’s Friday!

It’s my wife’s birthday this weekend and I bought her a kegerator because she brews her own beer. It’s kind of selfish of me because I just want her to make me beer to drink. It all works out for the best!

The Slope‘s Desiree Akhavan has started a column at Filmmaker magazine and it is hilarious, as you might have guessed.

Joe Biden told a lesbian couple gay marriage is “going to happen.” He didn’t say when, exactly, so I’ll just keep my wedding dress in the closet for now. I’m looking for any excuse to wear it again.

Out artist K8 Hardy is on the cover of Fort Worth Weekly and they have a pretty in-depth profile piece of her work and her family, who still live in Texas.

Patricia Field is this month’s stylist over at

Beth Ditto is a judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race: All-Stars this season. You can see her say she’s “turned on” in this trailer.

Fat Mike from NOFX talked with about the band’s song “Creeping Out Sara,” which was about his asking Sara Quin about lesbian sex. (Creep is right.) They asked if they ever smoothed things over with Tegan and her sister:

Uh… I talked to Tegan a little bit. We kind of smoothed things over. They wanted me to make a public apology, and I’m like, “Hell no!” [laughs] The whole song is about what I did. It doesn’t say anything about them — it’s just questions that I asked them. They wanted me to say that I don’t think they’re incestuous and I’m sorry for writing these lyrics that could be construed as homophobic. And I’m just like, “We’re the most pro-gay and pro-sexual-diversity band there is, and why would I apologize?” I didn’t even make fun of them! But even if I did make fun of them, I wouldn’t apologize!

Some dudes just don’t understand.

Model Freja Beha Erichsen is the new face of Maybelline New York. It was only a matter of time, since she’s been the face of everything else.

Target has released new gay marriage ads for their wedding registries. Cute, although they look a little more like two brides partying together than a couple who just got married.
