The “Girls” creator and her gay sister get candid.
“I’m here to remind you that you have the right to be handsome,” reads the tagline to Mr. Rachel Tutera’s popular tumblr blog, thehandsomebutch.
Tutera, a contributor to sites like dapperq and a stylist for queer woman, who is also a clothier for the bespoke menswear company Bindle & Keep, is featured in a new, untitled, documentary produced by Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner’s company, A Casual Romance Productions, and directed by Jason Benjamin.
During her acceptance speech this past Monday for the Point Foundation’s Horizon Award, Lena Dunham admitted her disappointment when she realized she was straight. She noted, however, she was grateful that there was at least one homo in the family: “When my sister came out, I thought, ‘Thank God, someone in this family can truly represent my passions and beliefs.’”
Lena Dunham, Aisha Tyler, Frangela, and Gina Carano make the feminist news this week.
Real life lesbian Leslie Gore loans her song “You Don’t Own Me” to Miranda July, Carrie Brownstein, Sia, Mae Whitman, Lena Dunham and all-around-amazing women.
p.s. who is that babe holding the “girls” sign?!
