Morning Brew – Ellen joins Taylor Swift on stage in LA

Good morning!

Jayne Rowse and April DeBoer, the couple who fought for marriage equality in Michigan, finally got hitched! Congrats to these awesome women.

Ellen DeGeneres joined Taylor Swift on stage last night in L.A. and wore a little bit of a showgirl outfit for the occasion.

Johnny Depp‘s daughter, Lily-Rose Depp, posed for some Self-Evident Truths photo, which means she doesn’t consider herself 100 percent straight. I hope this brings some attention to iO Tillett Wright‘s queer photography project.

Broadly has a piece on queer women and astrology. Seriously, it’s not even a pick up line to ask “What’s your sign?” We genuinely need to know.

A study at the University of Notre Dame found that women are three times more likely to be bisexual than males. Some other interesting facts:

Women who are initially successful in partnering with men, as is more traditionally expected, may never explore their attraction to other women. However, women with the same sexual attractions, but less favorable heterosexual options might have greater opportunity to experiment with same-sex partners.

Women who act on same-sex attraction are more likely to incorporate same-sex sexuality into their sexual identities.

Alison Bechdel is one of this year’s inductees into the National Lesbian Gay Journalist Association’s Hall of Fame. Well deserved!

Taylor Dane says Tig Notaro‘s joke about meeting her several times is probably true, but she doesn’t remember it, really.

Ilene Chaiken talks about Empire in this Season 2 preview, which also includes a brief look at Marisa Tomei.

An interracial lesbian couple in Missouri say they are being discriminated against after neighbors make complaints about their home being “the source of discord.”
