Good morning!

Let’s just start with this image from the new Ghostbusters, coming this summer. “Movie star Kate McKinnon” has a nice ring to it.

Rooney Mara is on the January cover of Elle and, inside, she talks about loving playing Lisbeth Salander (she’d gladly cut her hair again for the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo sequel) and why she doesn’t love having to campaign for awards season.

“It’s such a weird process. The whole thing feels kind of gross to me. If [Cate and I] were male and female, there probably would be no question. Getting nominated means something You will get better parts, and I really do want people to see the film. But I don’t feel like it’s something I’m desperate for. I would forgo it all to keep my integrity.”


Amy Ray talked with Slate about the Indigo Girls appearance on Transparent. Mildly spoilery if you haven’t gotten to their episode yet.

Gaby Hoffmann is less spoilery in her interview with Nylon.

The whole cast got together for a conversation with SAG-AFTRA.

And there’s also a really awesome behind-the-scenes making-of Transparent that you should watch, too.

iO Tillett Wright gave a great talk about the Self-Evident Truths Project at The Atlantic LGBT Summit. You can watch all of the conversations as part of the YouTube playlist below.

Out performer Scout Durwood gave a TEDx talk (song?) on how comedy and laughter is important.

The Season 6 trailer for Portlandia is here.

Beth Ditto has a new plus-size fashion line coming out this winter. If you can’t wait until February, though, you can get your hands on her the first item, a corset T in collaboration with  Jean Paul Gaultier.


Comicosity lists the best in queer comic moments this year.

Speaking of comics, Marvel is putting more women on their covers for women’s history month in March.

The New York Times is loving Staceyann Chin‘s Motherstruck.

Here’s what Kate Moennig, Ashlyn Harris and Erika Linder want for Christmas.

Holly Miranda was a guest on NPR’s World Cafe.

Another day, another Xena reboot rumor. This time, it seems like something is really in the works at NBC. (But don’t hold your breath!)

You can bid on the chance to have Ellen Page record your outgoing voicemail message.

Jessica Jones star Susie Abromeit (aka Pam) talked about her role on the show on Anything Goes with Jessa Hinton’s The 10 Hottest Sex Scenes on TV in 2015 is really queer.

Chinese-Swedish American artist Wu Tsang is working on a badass new film, Duilian, “exploring Chinese revolutionary, writer and poet Qiu Jin and her not-so-talked about lesbian relationship with calligrapher Wu Zhuying. “
