Morning Brew – Thurs. Feb. 7: Ellen Page says “Freeheld” is coming together, Leslie Shay is Miss February

Good morning!

Portia de Rossi looks hilarious just sitting on a couch in this photo for Arrested Development. Is it May yet?

Atlanta TV host Mo Ivory wrote about her first lesbian wedding experience and how awesome it was. An excerpt:

I learn so much when I agree to new things. If you ever find yourself making judgments about people – like, for example, immigrants, or Asians, or African-Americans, white folks, poor people, rich people, gay or transgender, or those interracially married – find one of those people quickly, talk to them, consider their position, drop your judgment and watch your world open up.

Thanks Mo!

The best thing just happened: Dawson and Shay Fireside Chats!

Speaking of Leslie Shay, print this out immediately. It’s already February 7!

These South Carolina-based lesbian moms hate DOMA because it fucks with their family. I feel you girl(s).

Another reason to love J. Crew’s Jenna Lyons? She is a fan of turtles, who she jokes are also having lesbian love. Gotta love this Vanity Fair article.

It looks like Freeheld the feature film is still in the works and coming very soon. Ellen Page, who will play lesbian detective Laurel Hester, said:

Ron Nyswaner has written an absolutely beautiful script, so we’re hoping to make it soon. It’s my dream. It’s not all cast. That’s sort of the thing we’re trying to put together now.

I’m so happy she’s making this shit happen.
