Doctor Who Star Michelle Gomez will be bisexual and have a lesbian affair

According to the Daily Star, stars from the long-running BBC Once science fiction children’s TV show have suggester 35-year-old Jodie’s Doctor could be bisexual.

Michelle Gomez, who plays Missy in the sci-fi hit, dropped a plot spoiler when discussing Broadchurch actress Jodie Whittaker. Though her casting attracted a backlash – an asinine backlash, we might add – from a vocal minority of Internet users, Jodie Whittaker’s appointment as the Thirteenth Doctor has been hailed as a progressive step in the right direction for Doctor Who.

“Now we have a got a female Doctor so there is going to be girl on girl,” Michelle teased in a chat with the Daily Star.

We know that Doctor Who has featured LGBT storylines in the past, given Pearl Mackie’s character Bill Potts fell head over heels for a female alien before they set off to explore the cosmos together. Even still, the framing of the Daily Star’s report itself is lewd from top to bottom, and there’s a very good chance Gomez’s quote about “girl on girl” isn’t sexual whatsoever and has instead been lifted out of context. Because let’s face it: the Daily Star isn’t exactly known to be a bastion of journalistic integrity.

The most recent series of the show already broke down LGBT barriers by having the first ever lesbian companion of The Doctor with Pearl Mackie ’s character Bill Pots. In closing, when asked about the possibility of a bisexual doctor, Mackie chimed in during the Star’s interview and noted: “It is Doctor Who. Never say never.”

Despite rumours producers wanted to cast a man as the next companion, Michelle’s comments suggest they will continue with a woman in the role.

A lesbian love story is set to send ratings through the roof.

And Michelle seems to be behind the idea of a bisexual people fronting the show.

Charlize Theron says she ‘Just Loved’ Playing Bisexual On The Big Screen

Charlize Theron says she ‘Just Loved’ Playing Bisexual On The Big Screen

It’s turning out to be a boffo summer for powerful women on the big screen, with “Wonder Woman” smashing box-office records worldwide. Early buzz around “Atomic Blonde,” starring Charlize Theron, suggests the spy thriller is poised for similar success.

The movie, which comes out in a few weeks, sees Theron kick ass while playing agent Lorraine Broughton, further shattering stereotypes which were already reeling from the awe-inspiring Wonder Woman.

Plus, instead of hooking up with male co-star James McAvoy, as dictated by heteronormative movie tradition, she has sex with another female spy, played by Sofia Boutella.

But the female empowerment motif is just one aspect of the film that excites Theron. In a new interview with Variety, the 41-year-old Oscar winner said she was thrilled to step into the role of top-level MI6 spy Lorraine Broughton, in part because the character is bisexual ― and unapologetically so.

“I just loved it,” Theron said of shooting a steamy love scene with co-star Sofia Boutella, who plays Delphine, another female spy. “For so many reasons: My frustration of how that community is represented in cinema, or lack thereof. And also, it made perfect sense. It just suited her.”

Lorraine’s sexuality, Theron added, allowed the character to break the mold in terms of female representation in film as a whole.The first reason, she said, was her “frustration of how that community is represented in cinema, or lack thereof. “And also, it made perfect sense. It just suited her,” Theron continued. “It just felt there was a way through that relationship and the fact that it was a same-sex relationship to show a woman not having to fall in love, which is one of those female tropes.

She continued,The actor and producer also promised that the film would not shy away from displaying the lesbian love scene properly, saying: “James Bond doesn’t have such hot you-know-what. “I loved that we didn’t hide under the sheets.”

Theron, who is an outspoken LGBTQ rights advocate, has previously explored same-sex relationships on screen. The star picked up an Academy Award for her portrayal of real-life serial killer Aileen Wuornos, who was by varying accounts a lesbian or bisexual women, in 2003′s “Monster.”

“Atomic Blonde,” which also stars James McAvoy and John Goodman, hits theaters July 28.

Hundreds of thousands gather for LGBT rights in Madrid

Hundreds of thousands of people marched for LGBT rights in the WorldPride parade in Madrid on Saturday.

The rally was led by all of Spain’s major political parties, both left and right, who carried a large banner that read “For LGBTI Rights All Over the World.” Behind them came a slow-moving mass of people decked out in rainbow flags and colorful outfits, dancing to music under the southern European sun.

The march included several groups from other countries, including the United States and Britain, as well as groups ranging from rural lesbians to gay and lesbian police officers.

Since its inception in 2000, World Pride is held once every several years in major cities across the world to promote rights for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT)communities.

Over 10 days, the Madrid festival has hosted events ranging from a global human rights conference to a race in which men sprinted along a central street in towering three-inch heels.

Madrid World Pride coincided with the 40th anniversary of the first LGBT pride protest in Spain.

Politicians from across the political spectrum walked ahead of the parade, passing through the Spanish capital which was decked out in rainbow flags to mark the occasion.

“Madrid wants you to remember, and to never forget, that whoever you love, Madrid loves you,” Madrid's Mayor Manuela Carmena wrote on Twitter on Saturday.

The parade took place amid heavy security measures, with a massive police presence throughout Madrid.

The next World Pride will take place in New York in 2019, coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall demonstrations, when members of the gay community protested against violent treatment at the hands of the police.
