Morning Brew – Taylor Schilling and Uzo Aduba talk “OITNB” Season 3

Good morning!

Holly Miranda performs a new song called “Until Now” at Dangerbird Studios.

See Me is a new book focusing on the homeless LGBTQ youth in New York. Photographer Alex Martin‘s shots are beautiful and important.

The Wall Street Journal talked with Fran Lebowitz about her youth. Evan Fran Lebowitz was a child once!

Jamie Babbit speaks some truths about being a queer and female filmmaker:

“I feel like a lot of lesbian filmmakers, once they get really good at their craft they never do queer content again. So I feel like I need to give back to my community.”

Lives: Visible is guaranteed to be one of my favorite films. I feel it. Michelle Citron‘s movie is about a pre-Stonewall lesbian couple in Chicago, based on a photograph collection from real life couple Norma and Virginia.

Sarah Paulson was honored at the MCC Theater’s Miscast Gala on Monday. Here’s the lady of the hour with Cynthia Nixon and Lily Rabe.


Looking for something to listen to? A recent episode of KCRW’s Unfictional, “The Big Lie,” tells the story of Alice B. Sheldon, a closeted lesbian who wrote popular sci-fi fantasy novels under the male pen name, James Tiptree Junior, until she was found out.

I have never heard of a B&Q but it seems like it’s much like a Home Depot.

Sara Gilbert made a triumphant return to The Talk yesterday to talk about her newborn, Rhodes.

Speaking of The Talk, it’s up a few Daytime Emmys! The hosts announced all of the nominees on yesterday’s show and The Ellen DeGeneres show is up for 10 awards, and Beacon Hill faces off against East Los High in Outstanding New Approaches Drama Series. (Two of the actresses from each show are also up for Outstanding Performer, too!) Meredith Baxter is nominated for Outstanding Special Guest Performer in a Drama Series in her role on Young and the Restless.

Shirley MacLaine attended a special TCM Classic Movie Festival screening of The Children’s Hour recently and told the crowd that director William Wyler “had trepidations” about the lesbian innuendo of the film, which she thinks hindered the quality.

“Scenes of brushing each others hair or ironing clothes – he cut some of them out and in doing so I think pared the picture down a little bit.”

The early version also had a happy ending, whereas we all know how tragic the film ends. Let’s end on a positive note: Shirley loved her co-star.

“I adored Audrey Hepburn. We had a wonderful relationship.”

Taylor Schilling and Uzo Aduba talk about the coolest things that have happened to them since starring on Orange is the New Black. Then they talk a bit about Season 3 and how it’ll be about “faith.”

It’s sadly still an April Fool’s joke that a popular children’s animated show would have lesbian moms.

The Windy City Times interviewed Joan Armatrading.
