Morning Brew – Elisabeth Moss is crushing on Marion Cotillard

Good morning! I hope you had a great extra long weekend.

Elisabeth Moss was asked who she’d love to work with, and this was her answer:

I think as far as actors, my girl crush is Marion Cotillard. She would definitely top my list.


A great choice, Elisabeth. Now let’s get you two cast as love interests in a film, stat.

PolicyMic says more bisexuals on TV please!

The BBC has cut out the Doctor Who Madame Vastra and Jenny kiss for Asian viewers. It was due to “strict regulations” that disallow any “information, themes or subplots on lifestyles such as homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexualism, transsexualism, transvestism, pedophilia and incest.” What boring television they must be watching. Also, I suppose murder and rape is OK.


Michelle Chamuel has announced some new tour dates. Get tickets when you can.


An Associated Press journalist and Illinois senator were deeply in love in the ’90s, but had to keep it a secret. The story of Terry Mutchler and Penny Severns comes out in Terry’s new memoir, Under This Beautiful Dome.


The studies being done on why lesbians tend to be overweight have given researchers a few theories:

The project now claims that lesbians have lower “athletic-self esteem” that may lead to higher rates of obesity. Another research paper found that lesbians are more likely to see themselves at a healthy weight, even though they are not.

Healthy according to whom, you might ask?

A British lesbian and activist was detained in the Democratic Republic of Congo but has now returned home safely, thanks to her family and friends getting the word out.

Jeanette Winterson penned a beautiful and honest piece about affairs for The Guardian.

Purple Skies-Voices of Indian Lesbians, Bisexuals and Transmen is making the rounds at LGBT film festivals, and it looks pretty great.

Reviews of The Humbling have not been amazing but some do note how Greta Gerwig makes the most of the queer character she plays.

Canadian goalkeeper/current Houston Dash player Erin McLeod talks about coming out in an interview with Red Nation Online. She says she felt “liberated” after doing so publicly. (Thanks Lissa!)
