Morning Brew – Emilia Clarke would swipe right for Brienne of Tarth on Tindr


Good morning!

Out Transparent writer Faith Soloway was interviewed by Acoustic Guitar. It’s a great piece about how she fuses her comedy with music. (Make sure you have heard her “Lesbo Song.”)

Evan Rachel Wood talks fashion with InStyle and Nylon.

Lesbian artist K8 Hardy chats with Art Forum about documenting her fashions every day in Outfitumentary.

I think it was really a feminist instinct to make this document. I didn’t know what my life was going to be like as a lesbian and an artist. There were only one or two generations before me, the trailblazers, and I would have liked to see more of their lives. It’s like saying, “Hey, I exist.” It’s also like saying, “Our lives are important!”

One Big Happy‘s ratings were down 25 percent this week. Watch it live if you want it to survive!

Rachael Taylor and Carrie-Anne Moss look to be lovers in the upcoming Netflix series AKA Jessica Jones. 

The University of Arizona hostsLesbian Looks, a film and video series that hosts screenings at least once a month. So rad!

The Multi-Party Women’s Caucus is demanding South Africa get rid of homophobia. PRAISE HANDS EMOJI HERE.

Thank the goddess for California Attorney General Kamala Harris. She is calling bull shit on the proposed “Kill the Gays” ballot, which WTF!?!

PopSugar asked Game of Thrones stars who they or their character would swipe right for on Tindr, and Khaleesi herself, Emilia Clarke, is emphatically swiping right for Brienne of Tarth. (AKA she’d tap that.)

Some country music fans think “Girl Crush” is promoting the gay agenda and do not want to listen to the song on the radio. Something tells me they haven’t even listened to the song, like, at all as it is totally not gay.

ESPNW covers the first-ever same-gender tennis tournament featuring married couples in Palm Springs.

The University of Chicago is hosting “Closeted/Out in the Quadrangles,” highlighting their LGBT past. Love this shot from their special collections archive!


A Sacramento queero musical duo called Butch vs. Femme talks about their name with the News Review. Says singer Kim Aparicio:

“When I was growing up, I felt like I had to be either butch or femme. I never felt like there was anyone in the middle, especially on TV, there’s always this femme woman with a butch lesbian.” 


Congrats to Christine S. Lehnertz, an out lesbian who has been named superintendent of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.
