Morning Brew – First look at Emma Stone as Billie Jean King in “Battle of the Sexes”

Good morning!

San Francisco Weekly talks with our Hook Up columnist Anna Pulley about her new book, The Lesbian Sex Haiku Book (With Cats!).

Mo Ryan writes about the truth regarding the idea that  “anyone can die” on some TV shows.

Wired also writes about the lesbian death trend.

Women & Hollywood talks with Deborah S. Esquenazi, director of Southwest of Salem: The Story of the San Antonio Four, premiering at Tribeca tomorrow.

Out The Voice contestant Kata Hay performed a sweet rendition of “Natural Woman” this week, but sadly, she didn’t make it to the Top 12.

Amandla Stenberg shared her short film Blue Girls Burn Fast, which she wrote, directed, shot and edited, and it is, as predicted, bad ass.

Emma Stone seems to be doing a bang-up job of playing Billie Jean King so far. BJK approved!

Cara Delevingne is the new face of Rimmel London.

Check out Halsey‘s new video for “Castle,” from The Huntsman: Winter’s War.

Kristen Stewart and Soko continue to be cute while out and about.

LGBT ally Sharon Stone is moving production on a new film out of Mississippi because of their discriminatory new law.


Tinashe talked with Huffington Post about being label-free when it comes to her sexuality:

“I feel, like, nowadays, people are a little bit more understanding of the fact that other people don’t necessarily want to assign themselves one particular thing or another. That’s all a part of how we’re growing and progressing as a society. I think it’s exciting that we don’t have to be so black and white, because the world isn’t black and white.” 


Shay Mitchell is Flare’s cover girl this month and inside she talks about playing Pretty Little Liars‘ resident lez.

“A lot of the time in TV and movies, lesbian relationships are overly sexualized. But Emily’s were always very sincere. Our show was a trailblazer in that way.”
