The Oscar-winning actress was joined by Christine Baranski and Audra McDonald for a Sunday night sing-song.
It was the kiss heard round the world — or on gay tumblr. Listen, the news cycle is bleak and things have been dark for the the LGBTQ community for a long, long time. So forgive the community if we got a little too excited this week when queer icons Cher and Meryl Streep exchanged a smooch at the <em>Mamma Mia</em> premiere. It was everyone's awkward celebrity fantasy come true. SEE ALSO: Cher loves Paddington Bear, and I love both of them, so it all works out I know, I know, Cher and Meryl aren't technically a "thing." But that doesn't mean I can't go to a beautiful, imaginary place in my head where these two have a romantic queer future. Cher and Meryl are made to buy a brownstone in the West Village together, wear matching pussyhats to anti-Trump protests, and adopt a dolphin named after their favorite intersectional feminist hero. Bless these two for this— it's LGBTQ history in the making. The queer internet agrees: Holy water is Cher and Meryl Streep’s shared spit. pic.twitter.com/HrElZsNQst — Alex Schmider (@anderfinn) July 17, 2018 everytime meryl streep and cher kiss the gays get 100x stronger — freddie (@sorryimpudge) July 17, 2018 Trump denied us a Pride Month proclamation for the second year in a row so God blessed us with a picture of Cher and Meryl Streep kissing. pic.twitter.com/62BWNnTWjY — Gabe #DreamActNow Ortíz (@TUSK81) July 20, 2018 Meryl Streep and Cher kissing is gay rights pic.twitter.com/T9oDL4SPsW — mary queen of thots (@CarlyRaePrEPsen) July 16, 2018 There's a lot of awful stuff happening to the queer community right now. Trans students' rights are in jeopardy. Hate crimes are up. Some LGBTQ activists even worry for the future of same-sex marriage in the U.S. It would be great if we had leadership that actually protected and expanded the community's rights, but until then, we'll have this moment tattooed to our tender queer hearts.

Meryl Streep is known for being a Hollywood legend, and in what sounds like a scene from a movie the 68-year-old star has revealed she and Cher once scared off a “thug”. The Mamma Mia! actress and the singing superstar sprang into action on the New York City streets when they spotted a guy “abusing” someone else. In a speech at the annual awards for the Committee to Protect Journalists, where she honoured female journalists for their bravery, Meryl explained: “In the second instance, someone else was being abused and I just went completely nuts and went after this man.
US President Donald Trump was eerily silent on Twitter during the Oscars but that didn’t stop him from being the centre of attention on his favourite social media platform. The micro-blogging site went into meltdown when Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel tweeted the American President live during the show and as if that wasn’t enough, he promptly followed it up by telling Trump that : ‘#merylsayshi’.
Candidate for DNC chair Pete Buttigieg, mayor of South Bend, Ind., spoke with Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric about Meryl Streep's comments on President-elect Donald Trump. "I think she's right, and I appreciate what she had to say because she was using a moral rather than just a political vocabulary,” he said.
On Jan. 8, award-winning actress Meryl Streep criticized President-elect Donald Trump for his apparent mocking of a disabled New York Times reporter in November 2015. Trump fired back at Streep on Twitter, calling her “one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood.”
LONDON — At the time of writing, Donald Trump's Twitter rant about Meryl Streep has a combined total of over 31,000 retweets. But Meryl Streep has plenty of allies, too.

Queen Cersei from <em>Game of Thrones</em>) made her support of the Hollywood actor clear, and now <em>Harry Potter</em> author J.K. Rowling has waded in too. It started when Rowling shared the following tweet from writer Aaron Gillies, and added her own addendum. If all famous people can constantly criticise Trump for the next four years he'll be too busy ranting on twitter to kill us all. — TechnicallyRon (@TechnicallyRon) January 9, 2017 When a pleasure becomes a duty. https://t.co/TZSpmbrtc2 — J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) January 9, 2017 After someone responded to say that Trump could well turn his "overrated" insults on her next, Rowling dropped the mic. Never forget that some people's good opinion would be more insulting than their abuse! pic.twitter.com/XYRCHTijQz — J.K.

Meryl Streep may be an Oscar winning movie actress but that doesn’t mean she can’t appreciate a bit of classic British daytime TV. The megastar, who appears on tonight’s Graham Norton Show, reveals her love of Come Dine With Me and Homes Under the Hammer. Meryl is in the UK promoting her new movie Florence Foster Jenkins which is the true story of an heiress who dreamed of being a famous opera singer - without having a clue that she couldn’t sing - which also stars Hugh Grant.
