Craig Zadan and Neil Meron have optioned out soccer star Robbie Rogers‘ story for a comedic television show about his rise to the professional leagues, his quick retirement, coming out, and going on to become the first out professional athlete in an American league sport. I was a little hesitant about it being a comedy, but with Rogers dating Greg Berlanti and serving as a producer, I’m sure he has enough control to make sure the punchlines hit the right spots.
The World Health Organization has clarified their position on PrEP from earlier reports that had them recommending for all men who have sex with men. “The recommendation states that PrEP should be considered as an additional choice for preventing HIV infection alongside and together with the use of condoms and other prevention options. Essentially, this is about choice — in the same way that WHO recommends different contraception options for women WHO wants to support offering gay men the full range of prevention options to suit their circumstances and not exclude any options that are evidenced based.”
Having been denied at the lower court, the Colorado Attorney General is asking the state supreme court to issue an oder stopping the issuance of marriage licenses to same sex couples in the state untilt he legal cases are resolved.

At the TCAs, Todd Chrisley of Chrisley Knows Best said “I am not gay. He later followed up with “I don’t feel there’s a need for me to not address it.The reporter asked the question and it’s rude of me not to respond. I don’t believe that being gay is something you should be ashamed of. I don’t believe it’s something you should hide. And if I wanted to date someone, I would call you and I would ask you go to dinner with me. But right now, I’m very content in my life with where I am. Today, I’m not gay.” And yet, every gay man I know takes their gaydar in for calibration after they watch his show.

I’m sorry, but if you fall asleep at a MLB game, don’t be surprised if announcers comment on it. Heck, don’t be surprised if people draw a dick on your face. And you certainly don’t get to sue for $10 million for it.
Archbishop Desmund Tutu didn’t set out to become a champion of LGBT rights. “I didn’t choose it, it chose me. It’s not a choice; I mean, you don’t say, ‘I choose to be white’. It’s a given. You don’t choose your sexual orientation.”
Dolly Parton may be all country, but she thinks she’s got a dance album in her, and she wants to do it for her gay fans, and says she has “several songs that are very positive towards the gay community. I have a song called “Just A Wee Bit Gay.” It’s a great little dance tune, it’s funny and it’s got a lot of comic in it. I do write a lot of songs along those lines with people that are different and are just themselves.”
Parker Young continues his extreme vacation. He did say that this hurt a lot more than he expected.
