Everyone is Gay For Gay Ellen Page

Ellen page time to thriveAdorable actress Ellen Page announced the other day at an LGBT conference that she is gayer than a unicorn climbing up a rainbow with a dick in its mouth, spouting a really awe and aw inspiring speech about how she was tired of lying to herself, her friends and the public. Page said she felt “a personal obligation and a social responsibility” to tell the truth.

“I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission,” she said. “I suffered for years because I was scared to be out. My spirit suffered, my mental health suffered and my relationships suffered. And I’m standing here today, with all of you, on the other side of all that pain. I am young, yes, but what I have learned is that love, the beauty of it, the joy of it and yes, even the pain of it, is the most incredible gift to give and to receive as a human being. And we deserve to experience love fully, equally, without shame and without compromise.”  Continue reading “Everyone is Gay For Gay Ellen Page”

World Says ‘Meh’ After Finding Out Brittney Griner is Gay and Already ‘Out’ to Everyone She Knows

Brittney Griner bowtieAt 6’8,” Baylor Bear Brittney Griner is beyond tall enough to dunk. She was just drafted #1 in the WNBA and is one of the few female basketball players who should really be allowed to play against men.

As of April 17, she is also openly gay, and no one seems to care. But is that progress, or bias?

“I really couldn’t give an answer on why that’s so different,” Griner responded after being asked why people seem more accepting of gay women in the WNBA. “Being one that’s out, it’s just being who you are.”

“Again, like I said, just be who you are,” she continued. “Don’t worry about what other people are going to say, because they’re always going to say something, but, if you’re just true to yourself, let that shine through. Don’t hide who you really are.”  Continue reading “World Says ‘Meh’ After Finding Out Brittney Griner is Gay and Already ‘Out’ to Everyone She Knows”

Jodie Foster Says You’re Dumb For Expecting a Jodie Foster Coming-Out Speech, is Not Retiring

Jodie Foster Coming Out SpeechEven though Jodie Foster knows that anyone who needs her to tell them she’s gay to believe it has to have the brain cells of a collard green, she finally decided to address the issue publicly in a very touching, very in-your-face speech at the 70th annual Golden Globes on Sunday.

“I hope you’re not disappointed that there won’t be a big coming out speech tonight, because I already did my coming out about a thousand years ago, back in the stone age,” Foster told a surprised, laughter-filled audience during her acceptance of the Cecille B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award.

Foster joked that she is “not Honey Boo Boo Child,” and that isn’t a travesty because her reality show would be “so boring,” then continued on about privacy being a thing of the past.  Continue reading “Jodie Foster Says You’re Dumb For Expecting a Jodie Foster Coming-Out Speech, is Not Retiring”

Star Trek’s Zachary Quinto Comes Out As A Gay Man

Heroes/Star Trek star Zachary Quinto has officially announced that he is gay.

After playing the lover of a man infected with aids in the play Angels In America he said:

“[It was] the most challenging thing I’ve ever done as an actor and the most rewarding, as a gay man, it made me feel like there’s still so much work to be done, and there’s still so many things that need to be looked at and addressed.”

Quinto says his decision to let the world know his orientation has to do with Jamey Rodemeyer, the 14 year-old who struggled with his sexuality and committed suicide after being subjected to bullying for years. He posted these bits of inspiration Sunday, on his website:
