Gavin DeGraw’s New Video is the Most Lesbo-Centric NON-LESBIAN Video of All Time

Yesterday I was sitting around watching VH1  on mute, so all of a sudden I see Gavin DeGraw’s face and I’m about to change the channel when I notice that the video seems super gay and therefore mildly interesting.

There’s a lady doctor and a lady firefighter and some other random businesswoman being oddly sexual at the workplace like opening their mouths and tilting their heads back for no reason and while I’m waiting for them to bang I realize that they’re not lesbians, they’ve just seen Whip-It one too many times and want to knock each other out on a roller derby rink.
Basically, as I’d expected, the video is super cliche, just in a different way. It also doesn’t star Juliette Lewis OR Ellen Page and is therefore a complete waste of my time.

President Engages in Hand-to-Hand With Gay Cashier

obama gay fistbumpA ballsy man working at Franklin Barbecue in Austin yelled “Equal rights for gay people!” in the vicinity of none other than the president, to which Obama turned and said “Oh, are you gay?”

The man, Daniel Webb, looked at him, cool as a cucumber and responded, “Only when I have sex.”

With even cooler presidential cucumber coolness, Bama held out his fist, knuckles out and said “bump me.”

Angel Haze is WAY More Than Friends With Ireland Baldwin, Get it Right

Angel Haze girlfriend An interview with the Independent more than indicates that lady rapper Angel Haze is really really tired of the media confusing her romance with Ireland Baldwin for a run-of-the-mill friendship.

Haze, who met Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger’s 18-year-old daughter at New York Fashion Week months ago and has been sharing adorable couple-y photos on Instagram ever since, said “I don’t know if there’s like some confirm or deny thing with the way relationships work in the media, but everyone just calls us best friends, best friends for life, like we’re just friends hanging out.”

She called it “funny” but added that it also “sucks,” continuing on with a slightly explicit rant about how “friends don’t f*ck” and to STFU because they definitely do, all the time.

Is it Possible to Over-Apologize For Using a Gay Slur? Jonah Hill Points to Yes

Jonah Hill the tonight show 2014Jonah Hill apologized on both Howard Stern and The Tonight Show for calling a photographer who was following him around a f*ggot within one day of the news breaking.

He honestly seems to feel bad enough without any help from us, and will probably continue to beat the dead horse-shaped piñata of shame for another week.

Hill has made a few strange comments during his lengthy apologies, like “I didn’t mean it in a homophobic way” and “I’m leaving here to go to spend the day with one of my closest co-workers and best friend, who is gay.”

Two of the most cliché excuses for throwing around the other f-bomb and the n-word too. I have a gay/black friend, and I didn’t mean it that way.  Continue reading “Is it Possible to Over-Apologize For Using a Gay Slur? Jonah Hill Points to Yes”

‘Faking It’ Recap: Three To Tango

Faking it threesome episode
This year, MTV birthed a very decent show in the vein of Awkward called Faking It about a teenage girl who realizes she’s falling for her best friend after they decide to pretend to be lesbians in order to stand out at their ultra-liberal high school in Austin, Texas.

Struggling with sexual identity may not necessarily be a relatable theme, but having feelings for someone you can’t have is, and that’s what makes the show special.

In the sixth episode of Faking It, Amy (Rita Volk, the potentially gay one) reluctantly agrees to have a threesome at the request of Karma (American Idol contestant Katie Stevens, the straight friend), who desperately wants to lose her virginity to the “hot guy” character, who, like all heartthrobs on TV, is constantly referred to by his first and last name.

As expected, the unsure-ness of what’s to come gets to all three parties, and begins with awkward silences and glances back and forth…   Continue reading “‘Faking It’ Recap: Three To Tango”

Why Conchita Wurst Has a Beard

   
Austrian Eurovision Song Contest 2014 winner Conchita Wurst, drag ego of Thomas Neuwirth, recently appeared on The Graham Norton show in England alongside Kirsten Dunst, Dawn French and Bear Grylls to discuss her performance of “Rise Like a Phoenix,” her newfound fans (among them, Cher and Elton John and David Furnish – who had flowers sent to her dressing room), and most importantly: why she rocks a beard.

Graham Norton:

Even here in Britain, people are a bit if not freaked out, they’re kind of confused by the beard. Why do you think the beard is such a big deal?

Conchita Wurst:

I know it is something you don’t see everyday, but I created this bearded lady just to show everybody that you, it’s so cheesy, but you just get one life and you better make it fabulous, and that’s just my own truth. I feel this stage persona and I felt more comfortable on stage.

I’m a member of the gay community and our stories are similar, being a teenager in this small village wasn’t the funnest thing on earth. Over the years, I tried to fit in. I changed myself in every way you can imagine. I just wanted to be part of the game. Then I realized well, I create the game.

A Gif Celebration of Gay Marriage Being Legal in Oregon


Throw your Home Depot gift cards in the air like you just don’t care, because gay marriage was just legalized in Oregon, officially making the entire West Coast a haven for men in leather and women in plaid boning in the middle of church and children’s bouncy castles.

And I’m speaking solely from the perspective of Oregonian FB commenters with too much time on their hands. Here’s what one Geoff Davey, voice of all homophobes, wrote:

A GAY RULING BY A SINGLE GAY JUDGE, Real surprise here. Why can’t men be men and women be women anymore, seriously? Is this some kind of evolutionary thing? if it wasn’t for the “wonders” of modern medicine, the human race would be doomed as procreation is not naturally possible through the anus or by one female licking the vagina of another.

Because with 7 billion people on the planet and the environment crumbling as a direct result, we really need to worry about the 15% who might not reproduce. 

Speaking of percentages, Portland seemed pretty happy about the news, and at least 70 couples rushed to the courthouse for licenses since the ban on same-sex marriage was lifted.

As amazing as this is, let’s take a moment to remember Eric Marcoux and Eugene Woodworth, the adorable old man-couple profiled by NPR last year, who were together since 1953 and just barely missed the ruling in their home state.

Not just them, but all the gay rights pioneers, past and present, who paved the way for future generations to not live in fear.  Continue reading “A Gif Celebration of Gay Marriage Being Legal in Oregon”

Michele Bachmann is Afraid of the Big Bad GAY

michele bachmann gay agendaMichele Bachmann called the gay community a bunch of bullies in an interview with Lars Larson about the vetoing of Arizona’s pro-discrimination SB 1062 bill, telling the world that they strike fear into politicians and “dictate the agenda.”

“There’s nothing about gays in there. But the gay community decided to make this their measure,” Bachmann said. “I think the thing that is getting a little tiresome, the gay community, they have so bullied the American people, and they’ve so intimidated politicians.”

Where was Sarah Palin to add, “I agree! The next thing you know, people will be marrying donkeys and toasters”?

Okay, well, I think the amount of conservative, blue-collar types that want to beat up gay Americans and the amount of liberals who want to beat up Michele Bachmann are about the same.

Does telling her to always be ready for the armbar and an overly ripe kiwi to the face make me a bully?

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”

Michael Sam to Become First Openly Gay Pro Football Player

Mizzou Football Media DayIf defensive end Michael Sam gets drafted by an NFL team in May, he will become the first currently playing professional football player to identify as gay.

Sam, who was named SEC Defensive Player of the Year for his work with the Missouri Tigers by the Associated Press, recently came out publicly in interviews with both the New York Times and ESPN.

In the sit-down with ESPN, he speaks of the hardships he endured as a child and young man. “Telling the world I’m gay is nothing compared to that,” he admitted. “That,” being multiple family traumas including witnessing the death of his older brother from a gunshot wound and having another brother go missing in 1998 while the other two sit in jail.

The NFL has released a message of support, saying they admire his “honesty and courage.”

“Michael is a football player,” the statement read. “Any player with ability and determination can succeed in the NFL. We look forward to welcoming and supporting Michael Sam in 2014.”  Continue reading “Michael Sam to Become First Openly Gay Pro Football Player”

Gay Dads Kordale and Kaleb are too Fabulous For This World

black gay dads instagramSuper handsome African-American dads Kordale and Kaleb weren’t very surprised when people threw racist and homophobic shade at them for posting a photo of their morning routine with two of their three daughters on Instagram.

While the couple acknowledged in a statement to the Huffington Post that what they do in the comfort of their home is “no one’s business,” they also recognized that they knew the photo might get attention and they couldn’t go off the rails just because a bunch of assholes disagree with their lifestyle.

The only thing that surprises me is that common situations like this continue to shock others and are still considered “different,” even in the eyes of total jerk bigots with way too much time on their hands.

Robin Roberts is Gay, Thanks Girlfriend For Support

Robin Roberts vintage ESPNThis afternoon my news feed was bursting at the seams about Good Morning America‘s Robin Roberts’ gayness. Upon telling my snarky roommate, he said he wasn’t surprised and when I asked if it was because she had short hair he said, “No, she was a really good college basketball player.”

I don’t want to admit that that makes sense because it’s less politically correct than Tiffany “Pennsatucky” on Orange Is The New Black, but it’s definitely funny. (Click here for a look at her as a Lady Lion at Southeastern Louisiana University.)

Roberts didn’t loudly “come out,” she simply mentioned her long time massage therapist girlfriend Amber Laign on Facebook.  Continue reading “Robin Roberts is Gay, Thanks Girlfriend For Support”

Olympian Tom Daley and Actress Maria Bello Casually Step of the Closet


In totally unsurprising and then slightly surprising news, Olympic diver Tom Daley and Maria Bello (played the wife in A History of Violence and replaced Rachel Weisz in the last Mummy movie) both announced that they are in same-sex relationships this weekend.

Daley – a Tumblr-favorite and teen icon in his own right – has had gay rumors swirling around him like a tornado since we first heard his name, but I’m less in tune (and therefore more interested) in the personal life of Bello.

In a touching article for The New York Times, Bello described a discussion she had with her 12-year-old son about romance. When she decided to tell him that her partner was a woman, he sweetly replied, “Mom, love is love, whatever you are.” Excerpt:

From left: Maria, Dan McDermott, Jack and Clare Munn

I loved him so much for saying that. “But Jack, I’m a little scared,” I said. “When I was younger, people judged you if you were in a romantic relationship with a person of the same sex, and some still do. So I’m not sure how to deal with this. But we’ll figure it out together.”

She went on to say that her, her ex, their son and her partner Clare live in complete harmony. In the piece entitled “Coming Out as a Modern Family,” she writes that they all have dinner together every night and carpool to soccer tournaments.  Continue reading “Olympian Tom Daley and Actress Maria Bello Casually Step of the Closet”

Gays Stay Gay After Gaga Flashes Goodies

Lady gaga naked gay club 2013Gaga fans in London put their hands up and made ’em touch during a surprise performance at the Soho club G-A-Y.

If you were to ask 99.9% of that audience if they were more excited to hear her single “Venus” or see her naked body, well…. you know. It doesn’t help that she’s gone from borderline sexy in the videos for “Telephone” and “LoveGame” to Miracle Max’s swamp witch wife.

“Just saw LadyGaga do a surprise set at G-A-Y. She got her arse out & showed her vagina. All agrees it was impressive but we’re staying gay,” comedian Matt Lucas tweeted.

She got dat Thanksgiving turkey ass, and “Venus” is only slightly less underwhelming than THIS.

Michelle Rodriguez ‘Intrigued’ by Both Men and Women

Michelle Rodriguez butchy rolesWith her signature snarl, glare, walk and moderately cliche but fun “strong woman” roles in movies like The Fast and the Furious, Resident Evil, Avatar and Girlfight, the public has long assumed that Michelle Rodriguez is a Suburu-driving clam slammer.

She addresses the age-old rumors in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, saying “I’ve never walked the carpet with anyone, so they wonder: What does she do with her vagina? Plus, I play a butchy girl all the time, so they assume I’m a lesbo.”

And then: Eh, they’re not too far off. I’ve gone both ways. I do as I please. I am too f*cking curios to sit here and not try when I can. Men are intriguing. So are chicks.”  Continue reading “Michelle Rodriguez ‘Intrigued’ by Both Men and Women”

Janelle Monae Won’t Say If She’s Gay or Straight Because… Politics

I know the title made you think she was running for president, but college-radio favorite Janelle Monae says she doesn’t want to let anyone know her sexuality because she doesn’t want any specific gender or group to stop liking her. And she means it not in the “I hate you, I want to light you on fire and swing you from a noose” type of way, but in the “ohhhh baby I love your way,” way.

“I want everybody to focus on my music,” Monae told a Sirius radio host that isn’t Howard Stern and therefore doesn’t deserve to be named. “I also don’t want to let anybody down. I want women to still be attracted to me. Go get my album! I want men to still be attracted to me, so I have to be political in this. So I can’t really tell y’all!”

Interesting reasoning, but almost no straight person ever answers “are you gay?” with, “I refuse to answer because ______  <—- [insert random made-up reason here].”  Continue reading “Janelle Monae Won’t Say If She’s Gay or Straight Because… Politics”

That’s So Raven’s Raven-Symoné is SO GAY

Disney star Raven-Symone let the Twitterverse know earlier this weekend that she is proud of America for overturning DOMA, the totally anti-gay Defense of Marriage Act enacted in 1996.

“I can finally get married! Yay government! So proud of you,” Symone wrote.

This confirms last year’s rumor that she is queerer than a two-dollar bill or high school student with a knack for predicting the future. She’s so gay and that is SO OKAY unless her girlfriend really is AzMarie from America’s Next Top ModelKind of a bitch. (You can do better.)

Go Raven, it’s not your birthday but you are exactly the same age as me and that makes you my black test tube Orphan Black twinsie clone for life.
