Morning Brew – Amber Heard doesn’t care what you call her, she still fights for equality

Good morning!

The Utah judge who was trying to keep a lesbian couple from being able to keep their foster baby has reversed his order.

Also in Utah, the new lesbian mayor-elect is ready to have a chat with the Mormon church. Mostly because of reasons that are discussed in this Guardian piece about a Mormon lesbian couple who are faced with ex-communication if they get married.

Miley Cyrus posed quite queerly for CANDY magazine, and I’d like it better if it hadn’t been shot by Terry Richardson. Speaking of Miley, the LA LGBT Center has released part of her Vanguard Awards Acceptance speech.

BBC Three aired a special on bisexuality and bi-curiosity (their words) called Tyger Takes On… How Straight Am I?

Amber Heard is on the cover of Marie Claire UK and, inside, she talks about being involved in the LGBT community and equality movement.

“No matter what people want to label me as, I still fight for equality, and I think popular opinion will catch up.  I think it already has, actually. I think our generation sees themselves as part of a larger global community, and therefore, it’s harder to enact basic tribalistic prejudices based on ignorance and hate.”
