Morning Brew – WNBA star Angel McCoughtry comes out


Happy Dinah Day! I’m in Palm Springs, ready to represent AfterEllen at the Hilton Pool Party today. I have new AE chapsticks to hand out, so if you know someone here, tell them to find me at our meet-and-greet and I will give them one for you. Also I’ll be posting some fun photos from the weekend on our Instagram, so keep in touch if you care about debauchery in the desert.

A lesbian couple are suing a Georgia-based sperm bank called Xytex Corp. for lying about the donor. So many things wrong with this case, like the fact they even “accidentally” revealed the donor’s identity at all.

There’s a new Orphan Black trailer and, BTW, Season 3 premieres THIS MONTH. (I’ve been waiting so long to say that.)

On Instagram, WNBA star Angel McCoughtry (Atlanta Dream) posted a photo of herself with her fiancée and this message:

“Yes we been discriminated against! We lost friends! Family members are upset! They said I disgraced my religion! One thing I do know is that LOVE is a great feeling! My last overseas team threatened my job if i didn’t write a fake letter on social media saying my relationship was a lie. But all i know, Love is a great feeling! I understand we all judge and its in human nature, but the more i speak to God i never feel judgement front he man upstairs, even tho he has all the power too! He tells me to fall, learn, and grow because thats life. But to always keep my heart pure and believe totally in him. All i know love is a great feeling and GOD is Love.”

We love you, Angel.

Lea Delaria has been diagnosed with diabetes, so she lost 50 pounds.

“I feel great. But I went through a year of going, ‘Why do I feel so bad?’ When you watch me in the show and I do that crazy dance with Uzo Aduba …that staggering thing I did, I was 50 lbs. heavier, and I did 12 takes on that. I’ve always been really energetic, but for a year I was feeling really weird, I didn’t know what was going on. Once we did the blood test and we understood what was going on, it was great,” she explained. “And now I’ve got my energy back. I feel like me and everything is great.”

Get it, Big Boo!
