You May Kiss, Brides: ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK Couple Weds Comments (0)

Samira-wiley-instagramWiley & Morelli (Image via Instagram @whododatlikedat)

Samira Wiley and Lauren Morelli got married in Palm Springs, ExtraTV reports.

Wiley, who plays Poussey Washington on Orange Is the New Black, and Morelli, who is one of the Netflix show's writers, met on set... when Morelli thought she was straight, and was definitely married to a man.

In an Identities.Mic essay, Morelli wrote of her discovery that she is a lesbian:

... while it certainly would have been disorienting to begin to question my sexuality after three decades of knowing myself, it was particularly blinding because I'd gotten married only a few months before. It was the sort of wedding that makes you believe in absolute partnership and the strength that can come from facing obstacles, like the life-threatening illness that my new husband had battled for the majority of our relationship. But he was healthy again, so we danced under strings of Christmas lights and drank fancy cocktails that were served in mason jars, all while being surrounded by the friends and family who had held us up over the previous six years.

Which is why it's now a punch in the gut every time I have to say, “I'm getting divorced because I'm gay.” It's a sentence I've said approximately 5,223 times in the last six months. For those of you keeping track, I'm definitely not exaggerating and I'm not prone to hyperbole, ever.

Often, after I make the declaration in as casual a voice as I can manage, the next question is, “Did you know?” It's a question that I dread because I always hear the implied “How could you not know?”

WHEN WE RISE: A Valiant Effort Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2017-02-25 at 11.46.16 AM(Image via ABC)

When We Rise, ABC's miniseries event written by Dustin Lance Black to capture the long arc of the gay-rights movement, debuts February 27 on ABC at 9 p.m. Positioned as a gay Roots, it isn't, at least judging from the opening installment.

Screen Shot 2017-02-25 at 11.56.14 AMCharlie Carver & Jonathan Majors seek a reprieve from the horrors of Vietnam. (Video still via ABC)

A terrific idea bogged down by too broad a scope — the creatives seemingly try to jam in every aspect of the LGBTQ movement from the early '70s on  — When We Rise is further done in by a canned, stagey quality with dialogue that's forced to cue viewers about significant milestones rather than allowed to serve the characters. That makes it more docu than drama, and leads to a preachy tone.

Screen Shot 2017-02-25 at 12.11.45 PM

Among the performances, Jonathan Majors & Charlie Carver are briefly sweet together in a Vietnam War romance, Austin P. McKenzie has an ethereal idealism as young activist Cleve Jones and Emily Skeggs, whose character finds herself caught in the crossfire between the feminist and lesbian movements, nails the mix between personal coming-of-age and finding one's greater purpose.

Guy Pearce doesn't come off nearly as well.

Famous faces like him— Rosie O'Donnell, Whoopi Goldberg, Rachel Griffiths — tend to feel like stars whose presence helped get this made; friendly faces, but distracting more than acting.

Though When We Rise is by no means great drama, let's hope it will draw in some non-gay viewers desperately in need of some enlightenment, and some LGBTQ viewers desperately in need of reminding that people fought and died for their rights — and that those rights could be in the process of going up in smoke.

Bottom line: Commendable endeavor, informative, occasionally quite watchable, but not great art. If you can live with that, you might find yourself hooked for the run.

Soccer Legend Abby Wambach Engaged To Christian Mommy Blogger Comments (0)

Via ExtraTV: Retired soccer star Abby Wambach, a two-time gold medalist, has announced she is engaged to Glennon Doyle Melton, a popular Christian mommy blogger.

The two had debuted as a couple in November, just a few months after Melton's marriage (to a man) and Wambach's own marriage (to a woman) had both ended.

With a sweet black-and-white image of their ring-adorned hands,  Melton posted, Abby and I decided to hold hands forever. First, fiercely, and forever @abbywambach.”

The announcement came days after an especially lovey-dovey post showing the women nuzzling:

In spite of her Christian identity, Melton has long been a gay-marriage advocate, as well as an outspoken critic of Not-My-President Trump's.

Queering The Deal: Veteran Con Man Now Running Online LGBT Church Comments (0)

Screen-shot-2017-02-16-at-10-03-820x430When questioned, this pastor's default position is hands in the air ... (Video still via WKMG)

Via Crime Watch Daily: A serial con man has set himself up in Florida as the pastor of an LGBT church, one that is seeking donations to help gay couples as they contemplate marriage.

According to WKMG:

Using aliases such as Larry Powell and Anthony Zamora, [Michael Anthony] Nelson has convinced people that he was a banker, a lawyer, and a business consultant, court records show.

In each of those cases, federal prosecutors said Nelson was operating elaborate scams that defrauded people, businesses, and churches out of more than $1.5 million.

Nelson has spent more than 15 of the last 17 years in federal prison for bank fraud, mail fraud, computer fraud, money laundering and identity theft.

Now, a News 6 investigation reveals that Nelson has reinvented himself yet again: this time as a televangelist and pastor of an online church based in Central Florida.

Nelson does not come off as credible in a video interview with Orlando's WKMG. The affiliate was able to show that images on his site purporting to be of his church or of him speaking to congregants are, well, not:
