Morning Brew: Monday, Jan. 25


Morning! Here’s to erasing that case of the Mondays.

While you were not in Utah this weekend, Sundance was going on with lots of lesbian characters in movies. Early reviews of I Am Love, The Four-Faced Liar and The Runaways are coming out — including one of a film called Southern District (Zona Sur), which follows a Bolivian family who has a “rebellious lesbian daughter.”

Jean jackets! Patches! Piercings! She’s out of control. Looking forward to seeing it for myself.

AE reader Elizabeth alerted us to some other Sundance news: Amber Benson‘s new haircut. I can feel her lesbian fanbase growing even stronger.

Our totally geeky Retro Reviewer Danielle will be giving us a full Sundance report this week, so make sure to check back for her firsthand view of all things lesbian at the festival. Until then, here’s this:

A new DVD series will feature legendary bisexual singer Dusty Springfield. Dusty Springfield: Once Upon A Time 1964 – 1969 features 20 of her complete TV performances, including her singing her hits and a and a newly discovered interview from 1978. It also comes with an essay from Dusty’s biographer, Annie Randall. Look for it to hit shelves on March 30.

In the Gayborhood is a new web series focusing on telling “human stories” about LGBT people. Check out this episode, with host/interviewer/hot femme Amanda Brown talking with trans activist Mel Wymore.

More into something German? Or maybe just featuring a lot of women kissing. Another new web series called Emma Stahl will be premiering in two days. Emma is a special agent for the European police unit EuForce who is “addicted to adventure and beautiful women. A sometimes fatal weakness.” Oh yeah — Emma is played by Meike Gottschalk, who you might remember as Sophie on Verbotene Liebe.

Margaret Cho has released a new music video for her song “James Dean” with queer band Girlyman. Check it out on her official site.

Speaking of Margaret Cho, some other contributors on her album will be on Logo’s Pop Lab next Monday, Feb. 1.

This just in: Kylie Minogue is not really into women at all, so ignore that whole charade. I’m sure we will all continue to live.

Make sure to come back today for the launch of a new weekly column from Heather Hogan (aka StuntDouble) called “The Closet,” which will give you the heads-up on everything lesbian going on this week. It’s all coming out.

I think this is enough to brew over for an hour. See you tomorrow!
