“Saturday Night Live” Welcomes Its First Openly Non-Binary Cast Member, Molly Kearney


Saturday Night Live” just announced the cast for its upcoming 48th season, and among the newcomers is the first openly non-binary member, Molly Kearney. While this is a big moment for the LGBTQ+ community, this is not Kearney’s first break in comedy. The comedian and actor, who uses gender-neutral pronouns “they” and “them,” also plays Fern Dannely in Amazon’s “A League of Their Own” and has been featured in Comedy Central’s “Up Next” showcase for up-and-coming comedians and Disney+’s “The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers.”

Kearney shared their excitement about joining the cast, posting an announcement on Instagram on Sept. 15 with the caption: “MEATBRICK MOVED TO NEW YORK !!!!”

Kearney is one of four new cast members, including writer and actor Marcello Hernandez; Michael Longfellow, who appeared on NBC’s “Bring the Funny”; and Devon Walker, who has written for shows like Freeform’s “Everything’s Trash” and Netflix’s “Big Mouth.” Fans of the show may feel particularly eager to see what these new faces bring to the table following the departure of iconic “SNL” alumni such as Kate McKinnon and Pete Davidson.

“SNL” officially returns for season 48 on Oct. 1.
