"[Bisexuals] get no respect"
Actress Cynthia Nixon, who boldly shaved off all of her hair for her new Broadway stage play Wit, caused a bit of a stir earlier this week when she made comments that suggested homosexuality is a “choice”. What Cynthia was saying was that for her, personally, being gay is a choice because after choosing to be in a heterosexual relationship, she now chooses to be in a homosexual relationship. I suggested that what Cynthia was describing is bisexuality … and today we learn that, yes, that is indeed what she was trying to convey. In a follow-up interview with The Daily Beast, Cynthia maintains that “nobody likes bisexuals” and therefore, she doesn’t like using the term. But, whether she likes it or not, homosexuality is not a choice except for those who are bisexual. More »

"[Y]ou don’t get to define my gayness for me"
Comments made by Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon about homosexuality being a “choice” have been ruffling a few feathers. I’ve read headlines that erroneously quote Nixon as saying “Homosexuality is a Choice” and that assertion is completely false. What Cynthia actually said is for HER, being gay is a choice. I think it is very important to make the distinction that Cynthia Nixon is speaking for herself and no one else. Click below to read what Cynthia Nixon has to say about her personal decision to “choose to be gay” … but read her comments in full before you jump to any conclusions. More »

Joshua Tree tells the alleged tale of Dean‘s secret romantic relationship with men.

The Wedding of Kevin Keller
Back in April of 2010, the long running Archie Comics introduced a new gay character named Kevin Keller. In March of 2011, Kevin Keller got his own spin-off comic book series alongside the various other Archie Comics offerings.

The Life With Archie title takes place in a future comic book universe and in Issue No. 16, Kevin Keller — an army veteran — marries his partner Dr. Clay Walker. This is deffo not your father’s Archie Comics storyline … but it is a very important, timely and effing awesome storyline nonetheless. More »
Okay, so this post will prolly only really speak to those of you who grew up in the late 70s/early 80s but I used to be a BIG fan of Kristy McNichol and her coming out as gay is just really fantastic news to me. Some of you younger folks may know McNichol from her role as Barbara Weston in Empty Nest (a character that was originated on The Golden Girls) but those of you who remember the 80′s well may remember that Kristy was a fairly big teen star back in the day (she worked primarily on TV — The Bionic Woman, The Love Boat, Family — but she also starred in the film Little Darlings). It’s safe to say that Kristy was one of those young actresses that guys would pin posters of on their bedroom walls … particularly because of her cute tomboy look. To be honest, news of her coming out isn’t really a surprise to me … but I am very happy that she is finally comfortable being open about who she really is. More »

Over the past few days, rumors have been going around that Ricky Martin and his longtime partner Carlos Gonzalez Abella got married or are planning to marry in NYC soon. As you may recall, marriage rumors concerning this two started up in April of last year. Back then, the reports were that Ricky and Carlos were planning to be married in Gonzalez‘s home country of Spain (the marriage rumors intensified in November when it was rumors swirled that Ricky applied for Spanish citizenship). People in Español is confirming today that Ricky and Carlos have NOT gotten married and have no plans to marry in the near future … certainly not in NYC. More »
Yesterday afternoon, I was sent an alleged coverphoto of the new issue of People magazine that featured a coming out story about Twilight actor Taylor Lautner. Despite the fairly decent Photoshop job, I knew immediately that the cover was a fake. Apparently, I wasn’t the only person sent the fake People cover because it quickly made the round on the Internets … tricking some people, like Russell Simmons, into believing it to be a genuine People cover and a genuine story of Lautner‘s coming out. So, as a point of clarity … it should be made clear that the People magazine cover below is NOT real, nor is the story of Taylor Launter coming out as gay. More »
