Five good (and gay) things that happened this week: 2/10-2/16

Happy Friday! Here’s hoping you are in a blissed out, post-chocolate eating mood after V-Day. Here’s some good news to carry you through the weekend.

1. Hannah Hart launches new self-help podcast. Harto conquers yet another medium! Along with friend Hannah Gelb, the out lesbian Youtube star, author, and actor is adding podcaster to her resume. Get life advice, lots of laughs and more with Harto and Hannah’s new adventure.


2. Mary Lambert to be honored by SF Gay Men’s Chorus. The famed chorus revealed that they will be honoring out lesbian singer/songwriter Mary Lambert at its annual Crescendo Gala. Lambert will receive the Inspiration Award, and perform her popular song, “She Keeps Me Warm” at the event. Couldn’t have happened to a nicer person. Go Mary!


3. Lena Waithe’s Twenties gets a pilot order from TBS. Lena Waithe is on fire! After an Emmy win, the debut of her show The Chi, and being an all around badass, it was just announced that TBS has ordered a pilot of Twenties, a show Waithe has created and written. The show centers on a young gay woman named Hattie, and her two straight best friends. According to  Deadline, Waithe said “I always wanted to tell a story where a queer black woman was the protagonist, and I’m so grateful to TBS for giving me a platform to  tell this story. Queer black characters have been the sidekick for long enough; it’s time for us to finally take the lead.” Can’t wait!



4. Couple surprises each other with dual proposal. Girlfriends Berkley and Tori surprised the heck out of each other when each of them had secretly planned to propose to each other, and it was caught on video by friends. Congrats you two!
