As more and more celebrities and politicians comment on President Obama’s support for marriage equality, it just becomes a blur. But on The Graham Norton Show, Chris Rock really stood out talking about the noise itself. “It just shows you how screwed up the world is though, that a man just goes “HEY, I think gay people should be treated like everyone else.” CONTROVERSY! What kind of world is this, it’s so horrible.”
Why is it so hard to come up with an HIV vaccine? This is a tough, adaptive little bug we’re dealing with.
The group Here We Go Magic were driving between gigs and saw a hitchhiker on the side of the road, and realized that it was John Waters. So they looped back and picked him up, finding that he’s on his way across country. They’re dropping him in Indianapolis if anybody wants the next leg.
David Mixner is getting back in the saddle after some surgery, and what better way to start than five questions for Richard Fleeshman, the incredibly sexy hunk starring in Ghost the Musical? I still don’t know how Fleeshman’s pants are staying up in that photograph.
Normally Paul Rudd plays the aimless younger brother in movies, but in They Came Together, Max Greenfield is couch surfing as the younger sibling. This could be an awful movie that’s just watchable because of the eye candy.
In Israel, normally a beacon for gay rights in the Middle East, the Knesset has rejected marriage equality.
James Badge Dale has joined Iron Man 3 as villain Eric Savin, who becomes the cyborg Coldblood.
Remember that sexy poster for Dallas that had the entire cast in towels in the shower? It turns out that they all did strip down to towels for the shoot, though each was shot separately. Josh Henderson had no problem with it, as his career has basically been the shirtless guy. “I remember a lot of, ‘Yeah, you’re going to do this scene with Julie and you’ll be studying, so … go ahead and take your shirt off.’ Or, ‘Someone is going to knock on the door, and you’ll answer it, so … let’s just do boxers. Now I hear ‘wardrobe,’ and it’s like, no need.’”
Showtime is saluting Gay Pride Month with three documentaries on June 7th, Orchids: My Intersex Adventure, No Look Pass, and Ultrasuede: In Search of Halston.
Sadly, after the next book, Charlaine Harris is done writing for the group in Bon Temps. The thirteenth book, Dead Ever After, will be the last of the adventures.
Despite the ridiculous success of The Avengers, Joss Whedon isn’t sure he wants to direct the sequel, doing someone else’s work instead of his own. He loves all of his productions, but his favorite is still Serenity. “You know, I love all my raggedy children,” he said. “But if I could be anywhere, I’d be on board Serenity.”
Speaking of The Avengers, most of the cast made $2-$3 million for their roles. But Robert Downey, Jr. renegotiated his deal after the first Iron Man movie, and stands to reap huge rewards, to the tune of $50 million or more. I guess he really is (on his way) to being a genius billionaire playboy philanthropist.
Is the church standing to win the culture war, but lose an entire generation in the process?
Everyone lies on dating sites like eCupid and Grindr, but Brian Moylan is here to explain the most common lies and what they mean.
NeNe Leakes explains a lot about her character as an assistant on The New Normal. “She’s very different from Roz Washington on Glee; she’s always in workout outfits and sneakers. Rocky wears high heels every day. This is very fitting for me because in my real life, you don’t mess with my gays, honey. I don’t play that.”
All of the NBC channels will be carrying the Olympics this summer. And the gayest of all the NBC channels, Bravo, will be hosting tennis. I hope snicks gets Bravo HD. I’ll be watching whoever has diving and gymnastics.
Alec Mapa says that 100% of the proceeds from his shows on June 1 & 2 at the L.A. Gay and Lesbian Center will go to benefit programs for homeless youth. I’ve seen his shows, he’s filthy and funny, and if you’re in L.A., you should go see him for a good cause and to laugh until it hurts. I still have images in my mind that I can’t get rid of. There also seems to be a trend of hot guys losing their pants around him, which is an added bonus.
