Morning Brew – Ellen presses Caitlyn Jenner on same-sex marriage and equality

Chris Brown was supposed to perform at a lesbian event during Black Gay Pride in Atlanta this weekend, but he bailed. Party promoter Melissa Scott told The GA Voice:

“I was being told to take his (Brown’s) image down because he looks a little feminine in that image, an image that he took. As a promoter I should be focused on my crowd. I had to send text messages of pictures of my crowd to say, there’s nothing but girls in here man.”

Have we learned our lesson with Chris Brown yet? Not a good dude, and that’s putting it very lightly.

The people and organization doing great things for New South Wales and Victoria’s LGBT community have been announced, and so many amazing women are working hard for equality down under.
