Morning Brew – Ruby Rose is ready to host the MTV EMAs


Good morning!

Mashable writes about how all of the lesbians you know are getting married.

Rosaria Butterfield was “once a liberal, feminist, lesbian college professor at Syracuse University.” Now she’s an ex-gay, married to a pastor, and speaking about how others can leave the struggle of the homosexual lifestyle. She doesn’t believe you can be a “gay Christian,” so that’s her first problem.

Arrow star Katrina Law talked about the role of Nyssa and what we can expect from her this season. A quote on finding out her character would be queer:

You’re always going to get the people that push back and say, “Why do you have to change people’s sexuality?” The original character as written by Greg Rucka was very much a straight character, in fact she had children, and she tried to give them away but there’s a whole back story about that. I’m actually honored and I think it’s so important that the LGBT community is represented on television and not as the outcasts or the derelicts of society or the comedic relief of society. They are just as valid and important. I love how the writers and producers of Arrow have handled her sexuality in that they haven’t made a big deal (out of it). There’s no “excuse” for why she is a lesbian, she just is. She was born that way, it’s her sexual orientation, and there’s no mention of it other than her love for Sara given towards it. The way I ended up approaching it was love is love, and if you happen to love a man or a woman, it’s love. There was no distinction for me between playing a lesbian and playing straight characters.
