Morning Brew – Wanda Sykes guest stars on this week’s “Black-ish”

Good morning! I missed you! Did you have the best long weekend? I think I gained 20 pounds, NBD.

Lesbian clickbait, indeed: I Was a Teenage Lesbian Cybersex Junkie.

In case you’re wondering what Kristin Kish likes to wear and listen to while cooking Thanksgiving dinner, Vogue has you covered. (She’s a Belieber.)

Bismarck, North Dakota’s local news tells the sad story of one two-spirit teen’s suicide.

Wanda Sykes guest stars as Dre’s boss on Black-ish this week. I love this show, and highly suggest you watch it on Wednesday  night at 9:30 ET on ABC.


At The Star Tribune, a lesbian mom writes about why she feels the need to be perfect.

An interesting story out of Harvard: Lesbian professors at the university are against the removal of the building named after a known racist, homophobic bigot, A. Lawrence Lowell. They would rather, of course, process it together.

A young woman wrote into Ask Amy because her boyfriend is uncomfortable with her having dated a woman in the past. However it seems like there actually may be cause for concern because she said her relationship with the woman “did not last long, because I became conflicted and eventually determined I was just not interested in that lifestyle.”


Well this is just one big legal mess. A sperm donor does not want to pay child support to a lesbian couple who conceived a five-year-old after finding him on Craigslist.

Carol, The Danish Girl and Janis: Little Girl Blue made strong showings in select theaters over the holiday weekend. Who says movies about LGBT women can’t make bank at the box office?

The British Film Institute voted Carol as the second best film of the year.

UK personality Sandi Toksvig said she got so many death threats when she came out in 1994 that she had to go into hiding with her three children at the time.

Queer singer Sinead O’Connor alarmed fans this weekend when she posted that she’d overdosed on pills in a public message, writing she felt like she didn’t matter to anyone and “died a million times already.” TMZ reports that Dublin law enforcement found her and had her “safe and sound,” receiving medical attention.

If you love Miranda July, then you’ll appreciate her new interview with The Believer.

Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner directed an episode of Season 4 of Orange is the New Black, and Laura Prepon spoke highly of the experience:

“We filmed a huge day on Sunday, and a lot of directors might have been overwhelmed by that, but he wasn’t and he knew exactly what he wanted to do. With a huge cast like ours, when you have a director who knows exactly what they want, it makes everything go a lot smoother. I love Matt—he’s awesome.”

Now we can all start fantasizing what would constitute a “huge day” on the set of Orange.
