Morning Brew – Monica Raymund celebrates her girlfriend on Twitter


Good morning!

A lesbian couple in suing the Madrid hospital that refused to help them get pregnant because they didn’t have a man involved.

The Vida Consultancy says they are a lesbian-friendly matchmaking service based in London. Holler at us if you’ve had any luck. I’d love to hear your story.

Hannah Hart and Ingrid Nilsen are in a YouTuber romance. Hannah tells Diva:

“To have a peer who is also my partner, who does what I do and gets this world, this world that we live in, but also gets the world inside ourselves? Oh my god. I couldn’t be happier.” 

I look forward to the inevitable music video!


Out footballer Casey Stoney talks about parenthood and donating her eggs with The Telegraph. Here she is on coming out:

“One thing that stopped me coming out for a long time was the stereotype of, ‘oh she plays football, she must be gay.’ Sixty to 80 per cent of the [England women’s] team have boyfriends and husbands. I didn’t want them to be stereotyped because of me. If you’re seen as strong, you’re seen as butch. But you can be feminine at the same time. I’m not gay because I play football. Being gay isn’t a choice.”
