Jodie Foster & Alexandra Hedison Got Hitched!

The ladies said 'I Do' last weekend

Congratulations are in order for actress Jodie Foster and Alexandra Hedison because today we learn that the couple are no married! E! News is reporting that Jodie and Alexandra got hitched in a quiet ceremony last weekend after they got together last summer. The very private couple haven’t really been seen together in public all that often over the past few months, so news of their surprise nuptials might come as a bit of a shock to some. You may recall that Jodie only came out publicly as gay in January of 2013 so it’s nice to see that she’s found new love with a wife not too long after her announcement. More »

“If it’s the same-sex, more power to them."

Stone Cold Steve Austin, one of the most popular wrestlers in WWE history, has gone on the record to emphatically lend his support for same-sex marriage not only here in the US but anywhere in the “g**damn world”. Austin‘s colorful support for marriage equality was recorded on a podcast discussion that is just now making the rounds online.

#BeyOut

Beyoncé — the most powerful popstar in the world … one of the most powerful celebrities in the world, actually — is featured on the cover and in the pages of Out magazine’s annual Power issue. Citing the poised and commanding Mrs. Carter for her ability to buck the traditional model for releasing new music in such a way that she defined a new model for releasing new music when she dropped her surprise album Beyoncé last December without warning or promotion, Out has decided that she is the only person who could grace this year’s Power issue. Click thru the gallery presented here to see Bey‘s photospread in Out, photographed by Santiago & Mauricio and then click below to read some excerpts from her Out coverstory feature. More »

Watch: British Diver Tom Daley Happily Comes Out As Gay

Clarification
I am a gay man now

Back in December, 19-year old British diver Tom Daley announced to the world that he is in a same-sex relationship with a man even tho he said that he “still fancied girls”. Since that time, it became clear that Tom is dating 39-year old Academy Award-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black. Last night, on a British TV show called Celebrity Juice, Tom openly clarified his sexuality and now says that he is a gay man (no more fancying girls, I would imagine). I love that Tom is being so open about his sexuality because he is looked up to by so many people around the world. That he is so comfortable talking about his truth might inspire others to be as truthful themselves. I had a feeling that Tom was really telling us that he is gay (not bisexual) when he made his announcement last December, I’m just glad to see that he is finally OK with truly embracing who he is.

A Judge Rules That Michigan’s Ban On Same-Sex Marriage Is Unconstitutional

Wooot!!!!!

In just the first 3 months of 2014, state bands on same-sex marriage have been struck down by federal judges as unconstitutional in Oklahoma, Virginia and Texas. Last month we learned that the push for marriage equality got underway in Michigan and today we learn that a judge has also struck down Michigan’s ban on same-sex marriage. Unlike the cases in other states where the rulings on same-sex marriage have been stayed while the matter goes through the appeals process, the ruling judge in Michigan has decided NOT to stay his decision … which means, essentially, that Michigan can enjoy marriage equality now. Wow. This is such great news! Not only has another state joined the growing number of states in the US that enjoy marriage equality (Michigan is now the 18th state were same-sex couples can marry, barring a stay in the decision) but because Michigan is my home state, today’s ruling holds special significance.
