Dylan Sprayberry promoted to regular for season five of Teen Wolf, Washington state to pay for PrEP, should Superman go gay?

Michael SamMajor sports teams who are afraid of all the “distractions” an out player might bring really need to consider the financial upsides of that out player. Michael Sam‘s jersey is now the sixth best-selling jersey in all the NFL, and he hasn’t played a single game. He’s sold more than any rookie except Johnny Manziel, and he’s the second highest selling defensive player in the league. The LGBT community will rally with their wallets when you stand with them. I really should consider one – I thought Chris Kluwe‘s jersey looked great on me when I ordered it (didn’t expect it to fit), but now that’s tainted by the actions of the Vikings.

Playwright and screenwriter Paul Rudnick has an idea now that Thor is a woman and Captain America is black – how about Superman going gay? He lays out some compelling, and some hysterical reasons why this would be great. But one of his weaknesses would be that Matt Bomer still makes him feel fat.

Dylan SprayberryTeen Wolf has already had their Comic-Con panel, and it was announced that it had been renewed for a fifth season of 20 episodes, to be split into two. And Dylan Sprayberry has been upped to series regular for season five. While the way they were promoting him there was no doubt he’d be back, it does remove any suspense the little Beta might not survive the current season.

A new program in Washington state will make PrEP available to anyone in certain high risk groups, free of charge, regardless of insurance, if they meet certain risk profiles. “Men who have sex with men are eligible if they’ve: contracted a bacterial sexually transmitted infection in the last year; been exposed to an STI through a sexual network in the last year; had ten or more sexual partners in the last year; used methamphetamine in the last year; or had unprotected anal intercourse with a partner of unknown HIV status.” That covers pretty much anyone who would be a PrEP candidate.

Daniel Radcliffe says that unlike most people, his first time having sex was great, and it’s only gotten better since. “I’m one of the few people who seem to Daniel Radcliffehave had a really good first time. It was with somebody I’d gotten to know well. I’m happy to say I’ve had a lot better sex since then, but it wasn’t as horrendously embarrassing as a lot of other people’s were — like my friend who got drunk and did it with a stranger under a bridge.” Hey – don’t knock drunken bridge sex until you’ve tried it.

Giovanni’s Room, the nation’s oldest LGBT bookstore, located in Philadelphia, has announced plans to reopen under new management. The bookstore operated at a loss for years before closing last year. It’s unknown which LGBT organization is the buyer.

Yesterday I congratulated Chris Geidner on being the NLGJA Journalist of the Year, but I didn’t know that another friend, Mark S. King won the Excellence in Blogging Award for My Fabulous Disease, about his life with HIV. I’m very grateful to Mark, who walked me through the rather terrifying process of coming out as HIV+ in this column, and I couldn’t have done it without him. His work at My Fabulous Disease shines light on important issues around HIV without ever descending into gloom and doom.

There’s really no way to describe how Dave Holmes walks through the Top 40 singles chart. It’s funny, endearing and shows the exasperation I feel with so much Eric Stonestreetmodern music as a 40-something childless gay man that learns most of my Top 40 insight from what’s playing at the gym.

Eric Stonestreet has fans across the political spectrum thanks to his role as Cam on Modern Family, but that doesn’t mean he appreciates all of them. At the White House Correspondents Dinner, homophobe Rick Santorum asked for a picture with the star with his kids, and Stonestreet didn’t feel comfortable doing it. “Rick Santorum wanted a picture with me. It was at a time when he was publicly saying, ‘Gay marriage, gay marriage [is wrong],’ and I’m like, ‘You know, I can’t do it. It was with him and his kids or something like that, and I said, ‘I’d be happy to take a picture with the kids, but I can’t just be in a picture with [Santorum.]’”

 

The Ft. Worth Police Department is going for diversity in their recruiting efforts, so they had a gay officer film this slightly awkward video for them. But for what he lacks in public speaking skills, the editors more than made up for with quick cuts to some fabulous pop culture moments. If nothing else, you know the department is going to be a fun place to work.

Sandy Rios is one of the more “out there” right wing radio hosts to start with, but her reaction to the executive order banning workplace discrimination of LGBT employees for federal contractors takes the cake, since she seems to think Christians can expect male FBI agents in dresses to start showing up at their doors. Wait – is Agent Booth an option? I bet he has great legs…

Moonbeam City is the newest animated series from Comedy Central. You’ve got an ex-playboy cop who does inappropriate things all the time while being really bad at his job, yet somehow always getting it done, even if it requires the help of a spunky female cop that he doesn’t respect. Basically, it’s like they crossed Miami Vice with Archer, as far as I can tell.
