Kate McKinnon! New cast member on SNL

Kate McKinnon, the HILARIOUS lesbian perhaps best known as “Fitzwilliam” on LOGO’s Big Gay Sketch Show, the young man who wants a vagggggiiiinnnnnaaaaa, is starting next weekend as an SNL cast member!

Classic sketch “Fitzwilliam’s Wish” ( this video is un-imbeddable, you have to click the title to watch it) :

From E online:

“The 27-year-old starred on the first three seasons of the Rosie O’Donnell-produced Big Gay Sketch Show. You might remember her as the character Fitzwilliam, a British boy whose only wish is to have a vagina.

Speaking of, Kate also worked on the 2010 web series Vag Magazine, running a fictional feminist magazine with other comedians, and will be Saturday Night Live‘s first out lesbian to join the cast since 1985.”

Actually, E is wrong. There has never been a lesbian cast member on SNL. There was a gay guy Terry Sweeny in 1985. Never a Lez.

GO FITZWILLIAM!!!!!!!

GO KATE MCKINNON! She’s gonna be funny as hell!

  1. HIlarious!!!

    “Whenever I hear the word ‘boy’ I get a shooting pain in my chamber of secrets!”

    Well done!

  2. Danitra Vance was the first lesbian on SNL, as well as the first black woman to be a core cast member.

    She wasn’t out publicly while she was on the show. 1985-6 was also one of those seasons when the show wasn’t very popular.

    Google her. She also made movies with largely-female casts, sometimes playing dykey characters.

    She is one of the many unsung lesbians who died of breast cancer while we were being encouraged to put all our energy into helping men with AIDS.
