A few weeks ago, the fine folks at Kenneth Cole contacted me about participating in their new Where Do You Stand? campaign where I was asked to record a video of me speaking about an issue that I care about. I decided to talk about about gay rights issues and you can see my video below. Kenneth Cole set up a site HERE that offers discussion about a host of topics and you are encouraged to answer simple questions. It’s a new campaign. Check out my video and learn more below. More »

"There’s no way to hide my straightness"
Adam Levine, Maroon 5 frontman and vocal judge on The Voice, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Out magazine. Despite the fact that Adam tells Out that there is no way to “hide [his] straightness”, he sees no problem with playing with the conventions of sexual ambiguity when it comes to fronting a rock band (in the same way that David Bowie and Mick Jagger do). Adam, in his Out magazine interview, is very vocal about how he does NOT like the way American Idol treats its gay performers and believes his show, The Voice, handles gay performers much better. It’s actually an interesting interview … and the photos are must see. Check it all out below. More »

As the rain started to pour in NYC yesterday, David and I packed up our bags on our way out of town bound for home. Anytime you are dealing with any sort of weather near JFK Airport, you run the risk not only of having your flight delayed … you also run the risk having your entire flight cancelled. Thankfully, despite the somewhat heavy rain, we not only managed to NOT be delayed … but we even left on time. The only unfortunate thing about our having to leave NYC yesterday was that we missed celebrating with our friends Shane and Jason … because they got engaged to be married last night! More »
Sorry 'Bout It
This week a petition started going around online asking that the Sesame Workshop (ie. The Children’s Television Workshop) afford the Sesame Street characters Bert and Ernie a same-sex marriage. Anyone with any passing knowledge of Sesame Street should know that Bert and Ernie have been same-sex living partners/roommates for decades so petitioners were hoping that the powers that be might legitimize their relationship by having them get married. The Sesame Workshop responded to the petition with an official message on their official Facebook profile. Click below to read what they have to say. More »

"I don't go on the Internet. If I did, I don't know what I'd do."
We are just over a month away from the release of Tori Amos‘s new album Night of Hunters and it looks like the promo machine for the album is about to kick into high gear. Tori is featured in the new issue of Out magazine where she talks about her aversion to the Internet, her accidental love of The Real Housewives of NYC (which we can blame her daughter Natashya Lórien for) and, of course, her new album. Click below to read some excerpts from Tori‘s new Out magazine interview. More »

In the Mood for Sexy Nerd Eyecandy?
Jonny McGovern, aka The Gay Pimp, has unleashed a new music video for his latest single titled Sexy Nerd. What is extra special about this video is that it was directed by my good friend Michael Serrato and features a guest appearance by my other good friend Josh Zar. The song is awesome and the video is really hot … like, prolly very NSFW hot. While the video doesn’t feature any nekkidness per se, there is a lot of hawt man flesh to be seen so watch at your own discretion. Click below to see a great video full of a LOT of sexy nerds.

Back in the 90′s when MTV‘s reality TV series The Real World was worth watching, a young gay man named Danny Roberts appeared on The Real World: New Orleans (the first time around, not to be confused with the recent Return to New Orleans season) and immediately became a heartthrob for gay men across the country. Since that time, Danny has stayed totally out of the limelight. Unlike other Real Worlders (who endlessly try to extend their 15 minutes of fame by competing on those Challenge shows that MTV keeps churning out), Danny has pretty much stayed away from showbiz … until now. Towleroad has come upon a selection of photos from an as-yet-untitled new TV series that will feature Roberts in a leading role. The show comes from the producers of The L Word and will also star Noah’s Arc star Darryl Stephens. The photos below are pretty steamy (and possibly NSFW) … so enjoy! More »
Miles Morales is the new Peter Parker
A lot of crazy things happen to some of our favorite superheros in the world of comic books but it is starting to sound like Spider-Man is the hero getting the most interesting action these days. Back in February, we learned that Spider-Man is joining the Fantastic Four team after the death of The Human Torch. In June, we learned that Peter Parker is being killed off in another Spider-Man comic book title. Today we learn that a character named Miles Morales is the new Spider-Man, taking over for the dead Parker. Unlike the very Caucasian Peter Parker, Miles Morales is a biracial possible gay character … which is TOO awesome for words! More »
The CUTEST Thing You'll See All Day
Last month, the New York state legislature legalized same-sex marriage and yesterday the first same-sex couples were happily married all across the Empire State. Steve Landis and Julie Irwin brought their cute twin daughters Emily and Sophie to Brooklyn’s Municipal Building and Borough Hall so that they could act as volunteer flower girls for any couples getting married. What is most precious about this gesture is that the family didn’t even know anyone getting married … they just did this out of the kindness of their hearts. Click below to meet this beautiful family. More »
