Five good (and gay) things that happened this week: 4/7-4/13

I’m back from ClexaCon and ready to show you some good and gay things!

 

1. We get a small peek at Disobedience. The highly anticipated film starring Rachel Weisz and Rachel McAdams released a short clip this week. Weisz who plays Ronit, gets a frosty reception when she returns home for her father’s

 

2. Everyone is going crazy for Pynk. Janelle Monae has done it again and teamed up with actress Tessa Thompson for a sapphically twinged ode to all things pink.

 

3. Lena Waithe, Britney Spears, and Brooklyn 99 take home GLAAD Media Awards. It’s GLAAD season! The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation held part one of their annual awards ceremony this week and it was a star studded event as usual. Ally and icon Britney Spears was presented the Vanguard Award, while Lena Waithe won Outstanding Individual Episode for Master of None‘s “Thanksgiving” episode. More awards will be announced in the coming weeks at the New York event, and you can watch the the show April 18 at 8 p.m. ET on Logo.

 

4. Tig Notaro is joining Star Trek: Discovery. The actor/comedienne will be a guest star on the popular CBS All Access show, and play chief engineer Denise Reno of the USS Hiawatha. She joins a show that has already been embracing LGBTQ characters and actors, including out actor Wilson Cruz.

 

5. ClexaCon takes over Vegas. From the logo projected onto the Tropicana Hotel, to the 4000 plus attendees, ClexaCon brought LGBTQ women and their allies front and center for a magical weekend. Guests like Chyler Leigh brought moments of thoughtful reflection, while Natasha Negovanlis and Elise Bauman got teary at the size of the crowds. From uber talented artists to dedicated volunteers, to dazzling guests and devoted attendees, ClexaCon 2018 was an event to remember. You can check out the main stage panels now on Youtube.

    Also, it takes some fierce facilitation skills to keep the tone right, moving along, but not rushed during those panels and you crushed it.
