Morning Brew – “Nashville” gets a lesbian kiss

Happy Friday!

If you live anywhere near Bridgewater, New Jersey, please go to the Gallop Asian Bistro and make sure Dayna Morales. Leave her a huge tip and write something awesome on the receipt. Maybe that will help her forget about this douchebags.


Fox says it’s doing so well because of the diversity on its shows. I like that theory.

Holly Miranda released a new video for her song “Desert Call.” I feel like I’ll be thinking about it next time I’m in yoga class.

Sara Ramirez chatted with The Hollywood Reporter about Callie and Arizona’s future. Somewhat spoilery, so be warned!

National Geographic has nominated Diana Nyad for their Adventurer of the Year. Now you can vote to give her the win.

Edie Windsor and Stephanie Miller attended the OUT 100 celebration in Nw York last night. Edie is such a class act!

Bustle has a cute post about a recently married lesbian couple whose parents refused to come to their wedding. Their loss!

Speaking of awesome gay weddings, A Practical Wedding is working on a project called 1000 Brides in Pants. So if you got married in some kind of pant situation, head on over and see how you can be a part of it all.

OWN has announced it will air two more of Wanda SykesHerlarious comedy specials. Wanda is having the best year ever!

I never thought I’d be reading about “strategic lesbianism” in Vogue. Oh Karly!

This week on Nashville, Hayden Panettiere got a surprise when her lover’s wife came to her door and gave her a kiss. Not only that, but she said to Juliette: “I know you’re sleeping with my husband. But what I don’t understand is why you’re not sleeping with me.” Anddddd scene. Basically we’ll have to wait and see how this plays out, but obviously Hayden is no stranger to playing gay (Heroes). Also the show added out lesbian producer Dee Johnson last season so clearly this is headed in the right direction (we hope).
