Morning Brew – Barbara Walters asks Chelsea Handler if she’s a lesbian

Good morning! I hope you had a great weekend. I went and saw Wild and highly recommend it when it plays near you.

Members of the Orange is the New Black cast were part of Million March NYC to protest violence and injustice in the name of Eric Garner and Michael Brown.


NBC’s One Big Happy will premiere March 17. Elisha Cuthbert plays a lesbian mom-to-be, knocked up by her male BFF who then meets his dream girl. Liz Feldman and Ellen DeGeneres are behind the show, so hopefully it’s hilarious and non-offensive!


Also coming up of lesbian interest: The American adaptation of The Returned.


Cute couple Rae Tutera and Mimi Lester posed for Refinery 29’s Holiday Dressing Style Tip story.


The Girlie Calendar is one I would totally hang on my wall. Lesbian poet Mary Meriam has a new collection of writing with the same title, and asks artists to create work based on each month/poem. The one of Alice B Toklas on Ms. is a little NSFW.

DNA India has a roundup of bisexual female celebrities who are married to men. Still bisexual!

Rosario Dawson said kissing Jenny Slate for the New York Times is a perk of the job.

You, too, can get pregnant in your own home! RawStory has a piece on a lesbian couple who succeeded in at-home self-insemination. (Sperm not included.) has a tribute to Leslie Feinberg.

Chelsea Handler was one of Barbara Walters‘ Most Fascinating People of 2014, and during their interview, Babs asks Chelsea if she’d ever have a relationship with a woman, and then if she’s a lesbian. OK BABS I SEE YOU TRYING TO GET US ANOTHER TEAM MEMBER. (It starts around 7:50, toward the end of the chat.)

The Artemis Singers (aka Chicago’s Lesbian Feminist Chorus) will perform songs about love this February. The show is called “Loves Lost, Loves Found.” <3 <3
