Hi! It’s me, Valerie! Taking over for Heather for just a little while to deliver your bi-weekly Pop Culture Fix.
+ My first gift to you is Cate Blanchett saying “I’m a lesbian” much to the surprise of Sarah Paulson. (Sure, she was just reading a comment and not actually coming out, but listening to it added a year to my life.)
+ I hope you have been enjoying the newest Twitter trend, which is LGBTQ+ actresses pitching themselves as the new Batwoman. I sure have.
Soo… since #rubyrose is no longer playing #Batwoman on #BatwomanCW I think they should cast someone with fighting skills (like krav maga) who has already played a bad ass on screen the last 5 years and loves working crazy hours! Just saying @TheCW I’m right here waiting🙋🏻♀️

Some are even coming out publicly for the first time* in order to be considered for the role. What a world!

(*I can’t be 100% sure this was the first time Camryn Grimes said this, it’s just the first I’ve heard of it.)
+ Pixar released a short about a gay man and put it right on Disney+ where children can see it. (I tease but it’s actually very sweet and cute.)
