Morning Brew – WNBA star Seimone Augustus marries LaTaya Varner


Good morning!

A huge congrats to WNBA star Seimone Augustus for tying the knot with long-time partner LaTaya Varner. The two had an “intimate, traditional Hawaiian wedding ceremony–attended by just 15 guests, with an exchange of leis, a hula performance during dinner, and a fire-and-knife show during dessert.” People has the exclusive photo of the beautiful wives! 


Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin were not thrilled to find out they were paid the exact same salary as their male co-stars in their new show Grace & Frankie. Yes, the wage gap exists in Hollywood, too. And the last people you should be stiffing is JANE FONDA AND LILY TOMLIN.

How alike are gay guys and lesbian women? Slate debates.

Out actress Carlease Burke will be staring on a new show called Crowded on NBC this fall. Sean Hayes will produce the show, also starring Carrie Preston.


There’s also a new lesbian character on Grandfathered on Fox. Kelly Jenrette plays Annalise, John Stamos‘s gay assistant. As you can see in the trailer, it’s “a job requirement.”  

At “How Coming Out Brought Me Closer to My Mom.”

Out writer Lauren Marie Fleming writes about how her brother’s death changed her online persona.

A new promo for MTV’s Scream adaptation has one of our favorite Faking It stars in a very sad state. At least at the end we get a glimpse of Scream star Bex-Taylor Klaus!

Congrats to couples in East Asia who were able to get legally wed this weekend.

If a Whole Foods Employee told me they had a new brand of wine made from “100% lesbian couples in northern Maine,” I’d buy a case. I’m sure that totally exists.
