CELESBIANS BEHAVING BADLY...AND SOMETIMES WELL.
• ROSIE O’DONNELL TEXTS TRUMP AT THE GLAAD AWARDS
I have complex feelings about Rosie O’Donnell. As a nineties kid, she will forever be an icon of the
cinematic perfection that was Now & Then and Harriet The Spy. On the other hand, her poetry makes
me profoundly uncomfortable. She’s a loud-mouthed, lesbian trailblazer who can nurse a grudge and
I respect the hell out of that.
Ro Ro had a beef with Donald Trump long before 56 percent of Americans had a beef with Donald
Trump. And when he went hard at Ro Ro, she came back harder, and THAT is what makes Rosie
O’Donnell a queen among lemmings. Anyways, the GLAAD Media Awards in New York happened on 6
May, and O’Donnellmade asurprise appearanceand texted Trump from the stage. Her message? Short
and vicious. “F— you, Donald. From the gays.”
• MILEY CYRUS EXPLAINS HER GENDER-FLUID FEMININITY
In a new interview with Billboard, Miley described her fluctuating queer style: “I’m a little bit boyish, but
I can also be super femme and dress as a bunny rabbit. Who I’m with has nothing to do with sex—I’m
super open, pansexual, that’s just me”.
Cyrus also hopes that her bold queer presence on The Voice positively impacts mainstream American
viewers, as well as showing love to people upset by the 2016 election.
“By sitting there after the election in head-to-toe pink (while on the inside being a gender-neutral,
sexually fluid person) hopefully, that was saying something. I needed some sparkle in my life, to make
me able to deal. Radiating love is something that is important to me—hopefully, that is being political.”
I wouldn’t call wearing sparkles political per se and in my L.A . experience, people who describe
themselves as “radiating love” are terrifying. But I like Cyrus and appreciate her candour and her outfits.
• QUEERS SWEEP MTV MOVIE AWARDS
The MTV Movie Awards happened and were relentlessly in tune with the *youths*. What do the youths
like? QUEERS. GENDER NEUTRALITY. What do the youths get? QUEERS. GENDER NEUTRALITY.
MTV actually did a pretty good job of repping queer culture on the national stage. Asia Kate Dillon, TV’s
first non-binary actor, made headlines a few weeks ago by asking the Emmys to create gender-neutral
categories. I had mixed feelings about that because I feared “gender-neutral awards” might mean
“more prizes for the cis men overlords.”
Well, butter my biscuit because MTV went ahead and did away with gendered awards categories. And
guess who won? Hermione-MOTHERFUCKING-Granger. Asia Kate Dillon presented the award for Best
Actor to Emma Watson for her performance in the mega-hit Beauty and The Beast.
• SAMIRA WILEY AND LAUREN MORELLI HONEYMOON IN ITALY
After tying the knot in Palm Springs, Samira Wiley and Lauren Morelli jetted off to Italy. Wiley
shared a few super cute snaps on her Instagram before returning to L.A.
Wiley and Morelli recently spoke to ET about the honeymoon and same-sex couple terminology:
"We keep debating how to pronounce it," Morelli said. "Samira wants to be ‘wifes’; I keep saying
that if we're ‘wives’ then that just means that we have two husbands somewhere and we're just
hanging out," Wiley joked.
