derby star


I have four projects coming up, all gay roles. People ask if I’m concerned about getting pigeonholed. No one asks, ‘Ellen, you’ve done seven straight roles in a row, shouldn’t you shake it up, do something queer?’ There’s still that double standard. I look at all the things I’ve done in movies, I’ve drugged a guy, tortured someone, become a roller-derby star overnight. But now I’m gay, I can’t play a straight person? OK, cool.

Hey STAR WARS fans! Did you see the Frogmouth taxonomy of Star Wars derby names?

“Earlier this year, when we created a taxonomy of several thousand skate names—which represents only about two percent of all the skate names in the world—around one in ten had a science fiction theme, and more than half of those were inspired by Star Wars. “ 

Do you have a Star Wars derby name not featured on this list?


My friend Katie is a roller derby star! Kuba and I had the chance to watch her this weekend in Dundee. He made this cool compilation of the game. Also, did you know there are lots of vegans in roller derby? They always have a little vegan bakesale during the game. 😅 (via
