DEBUT! (Louis Virtel's But What I Really Want to Know Is..) Diablo Cody!

Diablo Cody is an Oscar-winning screenwriter, an acclaimed author, and one of the big reasons Twitter is worth tolerating, but we mainly love the "Juno" scribe because she's a great interviewee. On the first episode of HitFix's new interview series But What I Really Want To Know Is..., we caught up with Cody (a.k.a. Brook Maurio) to discuss her least favorite screenwriting cliches, the filming of her next movie "Ricki and the Flash" with Meryl Streep, and the woman who warned her to put her Oscar away for good.

We also play a round of our favorite game called Who's In Your Coven? Pick five living women who represent, for lack of a better term, your "spirit animals." Mine are Jane Fonda, Jane Curtin, Lesley Ann Warren, Lee Grant, and Cynthia Nixon. Who did Diablo Cody pick? Your head will spin.

(MNW) Three More States Just Won Marriage Equality!

We just picked up more states with the freedom to marry, and the number could continue increasing over the course of this week. But in several states, officials are blocking the start of marriage despite courts ruling against their bans. We'll have the details on how couples are fighting back. Plus, more bad news for the National Organization for Marriage. This time it's a ruling in Virginia that means they'll lose out on over half a million dollars.

(TIME Warp) The AB101 Veto Riots; 23 years later!

In 2011, the GLBT History Museum in San Francisco held a program called “All the Rage: Stories From the AB101 Veto Riot,” featuring a documentary short about the queer riots in San Francisco in 1991 and a panel with organizers of the event twenty years ago and eyewitness accounts.  Called the AB 101 Veto Riot, it “ended with the police in retreat and a state office building in flames.”

I had never heard of the AB 101 Veto Riot before I got this press release, or the other two that accompany it in a trio, the Compton’s Cafeteria Riot of 1966 and the White Night Riot of 1979. It occurs to me that maybe no one has told you, either. Most of us got through school without even hearing about Stonewall, but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to hear about. In honor of the people who put their safety on the line so that our rights had to be recognized, let’s take a moment to remedy that.
