Morning Brew – “Sense8” Season 2 photos hints at another same-sex romance

Good morning!

Hulu has renewed The Mindy Project for another season, so hopefully, that will mean more Fortune Feimster. Speaking of Fortune, she’ll be performing alongside Macy Gray at this year’s An Evening With Women happening May 21st at the Hollywood Palladium. Last year Fortune and Sarah Silverman kissed in front of everyone so you never know what can happen.

Lesbian activist Miriam Ben-Shalom was asked to be the Grand Marshal of the Milwaukee Pride Parade but they rescinded their offer when they saw she had made some transphobic posts on her Facebook page.

As if we weren’t excited for Season 2 of Sense8, the show released some new photos on its Tumblr and it looks like we could see Riley (Tuppence Middleton) and Kala (Tina Desai) engaged in a little romance!?
