It’s a holiday Monday here in the U.S. but that doesn’t mean I’m slacking on my commitment to bringing you the most piping hot queer pop culture news fresh from the internet oven!

+ Kristen Stewart is doing the Cannes thing right now, including talking up The Chronology of Water, which she says she will get made by the end of the year OR SHE WILL DIE. God, I love how much more dramatic she’s gotten since she came out.

The Chronology of Water focuses on author Lidia  Yuknavitch coming to terms with her bisexuality, addiction issues, and involvement with the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions movement opposing Israeli oppression of Palestine. Stewart called Yuknavitch’s writing “so physical and so fiercely, ragingly female.”
