Ruby Rose Is The Sexiest Vegan And Jay Z's Mom Is Gay
Plus Jane Lynch gets National Geographic!
Ruby Rose Is A PETA Sexy Vegan Celebrity
Cynic’s view: Veganism is popular because it’s cruelty free and it renders most fattening foods inedible, leading to a righteous temperament and that coveted thigh gap. Looking AND feeling better than everyone else? Sign me up! Except don’t, Jesus, don’t. Anyways, veganism is a beautiful thing and Ruby Rose is a vegan and she is beautiful and let’s all take a moment to applaud Ruby Rose. PETA did. They name her one of 2017’s sexiest vegan celebrities. An honor, indeed.
Baka Bukas Is The Filipino Lesbian Drama Gaysians Have Been Waiting For
Baka Bukas (Maybe Tomorrow) is a new lesbian film rolling over stateside this month and I am here for it. Written and directed by out Manila native Samantha Lee, Baka Bukas follows 20-something Alex, who is out to everyone except her best friend, Jess. When Jess discovers Alex’s queer identity, the two grapple with their feelings for each other. Baka Bukas is a gorgeous, dreamy, heart-wrenchingly authentic film that transcends “better representation.” It’s not a token of diversity, it’s a universal truth come to glorious life. Baka Bukas debuts at Frameline and Outfest with more screening dates to be announced. More info here.
Jay Z’s Mom Is A Lesbian
I never thought Jay Z would be making lesbian headlines but you live and you learn that life is weird. Jay Z dropped a new album called 4:44 after infinity years and one highly publicized affair with Becky with the good hair. Critics are freaking out, and for good reason: it’s good. Most interesting to us, the gayz, is the track “Smile.” On “Smile,” Jay Z raps “Mama had four kids, but she’s a lesbian / Had to pretend so long that she’s a thespian / Had to hide in the closet, so she medicate / Society shame and the pain was too much to take / Cried tears of joy when you fell in love / Doesn’t matter if it’s a him or her / I just wanna see you smile through all the hate.” Adorable. Gloria Carter makes a guest appearance later on the track, reading a poem: “Living in the shadow / Can you imagine what kind of life it is to live? / In the shadows people see you as happy and free / Because that’s what you want them to see/ Living two lives, happy, but not free / You live in the shadows for fear of someone hurting your family or the person you love... The world is changing and they say it’s time to be free / But you live with the fear of just being me / Living in the shadow feels like the safe place to be.” Her poem ends with, “But life is short, and it’s time to be free / Love who you love, because life isn’t guaranteed / Smile.”
That made me smile.
Naomi Watts Gets X-Rated Lesbian Sex In Gypsy
Gypsy—now on Netflix—looks and sounds trashy but there’s lesbian sex, so yay. I haven’t watched it because I just returned from a refreshing vacation with my girlfriend’s conservative Texan family who refers to me as her “friend” but have a dope Orange County condo—but I did watch the trailer. Naomi Watts plays a pretty blonde shrink (married to a dude) who is overwhelmed with wild sapphic lust for the hot girlfriend of her male client. Straight people love making movies about blonde ladies cheating on men with women. Have you ever noticed that? I thought I noticed you noticing that. Gypsy is a multi-episode stretch out of this highly derivative concept. On the other hand, my blindly original (IN THE OPINION OF LITERALLY DOZENS OF PEOPLE) series about real gay people doing interesting things has not been picked up. Next time I’ll have to write more sad yet conventionally attractive bisexual female characters portrayed by straight actresses. I’m not bitter. Watch Gypsy now on Netflix… or don’t.
Kristen And Stella Go Matchy Matchy in Chanel
Kristen Stewart wore coordinating black sparkly Chanel outfits that cost more that the annual GDP of Somalia. Presh. Are they trying to sparkle us into forgetting that Kristen just spent the night with her ex?

Caitlin Stasey Has A Heart Tattooed On Her Butt
Caitlin Stasey’s Instagram is the best Instagram. The queer actor gifted us with a picture of her sunburned, super cute butt. Hell yes body positivity! Stasey is such a fun, fierce, delightful actress and role model for pansexual, confident women.
Jane Lynch Is Hosting National Geographic: Earth Live
I was watching cable this weekend and stumbled upon a commercial for a nature show narrated by... Jane Lynch? Sue Sylvester meets the lions? Like, what? At first I was like “Where is the sleepy drone of an elderly British man, this isn’t right,” and then I was like “Wait that’s sexist Chloe, this is right.” So yeah. Jane Lynch. National Geographic. Get yo weed.
