Happy Friday everyone! Did you pick up this month’s new releases yet? They dropped a week early so check them out!
A lesbian in love with her roommate asks Reddit for advice, and the internet loses it in a good way. Oh sweet summer child. A 19 year old lesbian proved the stereotype that queer women can be totally clueless about when another woman likes them. These two “friends” do pretty much everything a couple would, so Reddit advised the poster to just be honest. Guess what? Not only did her post go viral, but It worked, and they are now officially a couple. Sometimes you just need to take the plunge.
Kate Moennig realized she was gay while starring as the world’s biggest gay on The L Word. If you realized you were queer after seeing Shane on The L Word, you aren’t alone. Actor Kate Moennig did too, and she is Shane! In a recent podcast interview with RuPaul and Michelle Visage on What’s the Tee, Moennig opened up about her experience coming out.
Ellen Page wants to play all the lesbians. While promoting her important documentary, There’s Something in the Water, at TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) Page was asked about how acceptance in the entertainment industry has changed since she first started out. Page addressed it and also brought up that she is often asked about typecasting, which she finds frustrating. Page had this to say. “You would never ask a heterosexual actress that, as being typecast as straight. Why would I not want to play those roles? Quite frankly, I would be thrilled if it’s every role I ever played again!” Yes, us too Ellen.
Carol is leaving Netflix and writer Jill Gutowitz wrote a fabulously funny eulogy for it. Yes, it’s sad but true, the movie Carol is being flung out of Netflix next week. Queer writer Gutowitz wrote her feelings (which I’m sure many of us share) about the film’s departure, and it’s a must read.
Are You the One‘s queer cast takes home the prize and a piece of TV history. Congrats to the lovable cast of MTV’s relationship show, Are You the One! After a season of no-matches, false starts, and broken hearts, the cast finally figured it all out and took home the prize of $750,000. While most of the couples didn’t make it in the real world, lots of friendships did, and the show broke new ground when it comes to real queer representation in reality TV.
