Morning Brew – Jillian Michaels proposes to Heidi Rhodes on “Just Jillian”

Good morning!

Queer women had a strong showing in International Women’s Day yesterday, including this Google Doodles video.

And in case you noticed that part of our home screen is going green, it’s because we’re celebrating #MarchForward in an effort to highlight the wage gap women suffer in the workplace. 19% of our homepage images will be green to show how much less women make compared to our male counterparts (81 cents to their dollar).

At Bustle, a queer trans woman argues that International Women’s Day leaves out LGBT women.

On last night’s season finale of Just Jillian, Jillian Michaels popped the question to her partner Heidi by making a super emotional, beautiful movie trailer about their lives together. Congrats to the lovebirds!

Ruby Rose will be honored at the 27th Annual GLAAD Media Awards in LA next month. Ruby will receive”GLAAD’s Stephen F. Kolzak Award, which is presented to an LGBT media professional who has made a significant difference in promoting equality and acceptance.” The awards show will air on Logo on April 4th.
