The SNL Word: Out lesbian McKinnon reportedly joining storied late night cast

by Jeremy Hooper

Screen Shot 2012-03-29 At 2.54.34 Pm I saw out lesbian comic Kate McKinnon (formerly of "The Big Gay Sketch Show") perform last spring at Upright Citizens Brigade, and she was beyond hysterical. So I really hope this Deadline report is true:

I hear that in the past several weeks, seven comedy performers tested for SNL honcho Lorne Michaels...I hear one of them, UCB’s McKinnon, will make her debut on SNL‘s next show next Saturday hosted by Sofia Vergara.
‘Saturday Night Live’ To Add Female Player [Deadline]

The 1985 cast included out gay Terry Sweeney, but he is the only openly LGBT person in the show's thirty-seven year history. But now that gays can marry in New York, we are planning to destroy the sanctity of all local late night institutions, just as Maggie Gallagher predicted.
