1. Kate McKinnon gets her own poster for The Spy Who Dumped Me…and she’s wearing suspenders. This week new posters and a brand new trailer were released for the new buddy comedy, The Spy Who Dumped Me. I’m not saying McKinnon is playing gay in the film, but she is wearing suspenders and a purple sequined pantsuit. Do with that what you will.

5. Lesbian film Rafiki‘s stars and director get a standing ovation at Cannes. Congratulations to Wanuri Kahiu, and stars Samantha Mugatsia and Sheila Munyiva who received a standing O at the premiere of their film at the prestigious film festival.
