My Weekend Crush
Firsts are fun. First car. First kiss. First off-shore account in the Cayman Islands. (What? I fully intend to win the Mega Millions jackpot this weekend.) So when news broke this week that “Saturday Night Live” was going to cast its first out lesbian comic, I was naturally thrilled. Kate McKinnon, of “Big Gay Sketch Show” fame, will join the cast April 7 as a featured player. And that, that is awesome. It’s awesome for many reasons, not the least of which because Kate is damn funny. But also because of the historic firstness of it all. (Note: Apparently there has been a lesbian on the SNL before, albeit briefly, but I don’t believe the late Danitra Vance was out when she joined in 1985.) So let us all welcome, with big gay arms, the arrival of Kate to the Not Ready For Prime-Time Players. And to all the idiots who continue to bitch that women aren’t funny and that lesbians aren’t funny – suck on this. Suck on it hard. Happy weekend, all.
