Morning Brew – Fri. March 8: Amy Ray interviewed by a 10-year-old, Kate Millett gets inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame


Good morning! I hope you are having a fabulous Friday.

Out musician Allison Miller has a new song called “No Morphine, No Lilies” for your listening pleasure.

ICYMI on our Tumblr/Facebook yesterday, Tegan and Sara have leant their song “Closer” to next week’s episode of Glee. In this promo, though, I am thrilled to see “Bye Bye Bye” will also be performed. Hi, I’m Trish and I was an NSync fan.

And Tegan and Sara are keeping busy by performing for and talking with The Current this week.

VEER NYC had a fashion show at The Dalloway and the good news is they met their Indiegogo goal of raising funds to produce their androgynous fashions for you or your girlfriend.

Jodie Foster took her sons to a tennis match, and then she did some walking around L.A. It’s pretty riveting stuff.

Sandra Bernhard talked with Blackbook about standing up for the LGBT movement since before it was all the rage.

That was never my thrust, the gay movement per se. That was certainly the backdrop, because that’s just sort of where the smart, forward-thinking people have always existed, and still do to a certain extent. But my material is much more eclectic than that and always has been. I mean, I never identified myself as, you know, a “gay performer.” That’s just not where I’m at. My work is about taking all the things that I thought were sophisticated and important from all the different worlds. From the art world, from the music scene, the underground scene, from vaudeville, to Broadway, to rock ‘n’ roll, to burlesque, to the Black movement. I’ve always melded my shows together. I’m postmodern, honey. I don’t get caught up in one thing. Never have.

She also says she’s working on a TV series with a friend. I hope it’s Nancy, based on her Roseanne character.

If you aren’t scared of some heavy reading for your weekend, Ruth Marimo‘s memoir about moving to the U.S. from Zimbabwe, marrying an American man and then realizing she was a lesbian could work for you.

BuzzFeed would like to introduce you to China’s “tomboy heiress” Zhang Jiale. So meet your new crush.

Bitch has the Five Best Genderqueer Characters in Comics. Speaking of Bitch, their new issue has an interview with lesbian pulp novelist Marijane Meeker.

Congratulations to out lesbian writer, filmmaker, activist Kate Millett for being inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame. Very, very exciting.
