Buzzfeed makes a strong case that the comedy Baby Daddy might be worth watching just for actor Derek Theler.Derek Theler

Not only does the Democrat’s platform contain an endorsement of marriage equality, it also includes a trans-inclusive Employment Non Discrimination Act endorsement.

Surprising no one, lawyers for the Aurora shooting assailant James Holmes are requesting more time for a psychological evaluation of their client.

At her concert in St. Petersburg, Madonna encouraged fans to raise their pink bracelets to “show your love and appreciate for the gay community.” It’s unclear if authorities will seek to charge her for promoting homosexuality, but Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin called her a “former whore.” Maybe he’s more of an Elton John fan?

In an extensivGeorge Clooneye interview with Out, Jonathan Groff talks about being asked by a reporter why he was at the gay march on Washington. “I just told her. I sort of always knew, in the back of my mind, that when the moment arrived for me to come out, I would. I wasn’t yanked out of the closet.” He also teases us with this gem about his role on Boss. “I mean, the show is on STARZ, so I definitely get naked at some point.”

According to Brett Berk’s review of the Audi RS5, the car is like George Clooney, while a Mercedes C63 is Daniel Craig, a BMW M3 is Jason Statham, and a Cadillac CTS-V is Mark Wahlberg. I’m guessing her prefers a car that’s more physical than refined.

It turns out that anti-gay Bishop Harry Jackson, Jr. could be in it for the money, as records show that the National Organization for Marriage tossed him $20,000 to help him fight against equality.

83% of Missouri voters endorsed a state constitutional amendment allowing students to opt out of studying anything they feel violates their religious beliefs, be that gay rights, evolution, or really anything. I basically don’t care enough about religion to even be an atheist, but if I were a Missouri student, I’m sure I would have found a religion that was opposed to Calculus.

I know nothing of the character of Gloss in Catching Fire, but since Alan Ritchson has been cast in the role, I hope he doesn’t have much in the way of wardrobe.Alan Ritchson

In Utah, one of those lighted highway signs meant to provide construction information was set to display “God Hates Gays.” The Utah Department of Transportation says that the signs are maintained by private contractors, but that is was probably just a prank that was “obviously unacceptable.” You think?

Business Insider looks at why there are so few out Olympic athletes, while truly ringing the bell for our local favorite Matthew Mitcham. Ally Hudson Taylor says that for a lot of Olympic athletes, it’s sponsorship driven. “Olympic athletes are very dependent on sponsors. There isn’t much money in the sports themselves. So the fact that sponsors tend to drop gay athletes sends a very strong message to anyone who is thinking of coming out.”

We’ve seen a lot of Eagle Scouts send back their badges, but this story is special, because the Eagle Scout’s father is also an Eagle Scout, and a Boy Scouts District Commissioner. They both sent back their badges together.

Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie pens a great endorsement of President Obama in the form of a letter to the unborn children of his sister Megan and her wife Amber. That it runs in the Salt Lake Tribune makes it all the sweeter.

Germany’s high court ruled that the government must give the same tax benefits to the nation’s registered partnerships that they extend to heterosexual marriages.

Sadly, a federal judge in Hawaii ruled that the state’s civil partnerships do not violate the Constitution. The decision is expected to be appealed, and since Hawaii is in the marriage equality-friendly Ninth Circuit, we can probably expect a different Danell Leyvaoutcome.

When Abercrombie & Fitch imports 110 models to roam Hong Kong shirtless to pimp their store, they put them up in style in 60 rooms at the W Hotel. Personally, when I used to visit Hong Kong regularly, I preferred the Park Lane Hotel.

Danell Leyva is in a sexy, naked photospread for LifeStyle Miami, but my three years of high school Spanish 25 years ago don’t provide me the skills to read the article, so I’ll just confess I looked at the pictures.
