Speaking of television, Rashida Jones is coming to the CW with her new dramedy Ladyballs. Jones is joining forces with her sister Kidada Jones.

Out singer Hannah Thomas sat down with AfterEllen about growing up gay in the South and her rising music career. It wasn’t easy for Thomas to be open about her sexuality in her hometown, but her struggles about love and life have been an influence in her music. She’s shared the stage with none other than Antigone Rising. Thomas’ songwriting is inspired by “Everything – the world around me, the life I live, the people I meet,” she says. “Ultimately, I believe in fairness, although the world is certainly not always that way, so I guess that is where the advocacy comes from. I know my music can’t change the world, but if it helps one person, than it was worth it.” [AfterEllen]

But I’d been writing and performing for a while, and one of my friends in the Chicago lit scene was an editor at Curbside Splendor, my publisher, and she was like, ‘Dude, you should put out a book.’ It was for real that easy.” [AfterEllen]
