Meet Billy the Vampire Slayer
Back in February we learned that Buffy Summers, more famously known to the world as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, will be facing the realities of abortion in the comic book series Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9. Today we learn that there are more big changes on the way for Buffy and the Scooby Gang in BtVS Season 9. The comic book series will feature the introduction of a new vampire slayer … and for the first time ever, this slayer is male. And how can there possibly be a male vampire slayer when only females can be slayers? Well, apparently, it turns out that gay males can turn into vampire slayers, too. Click below to get your first look at the first ever male vampire slayer and learn more about how he will come to be. More »
Anderson Came Out as Gay WAY Before He Came Out as Gay
Back in July, CNN anchor and talk show host Anderson Cooper came out publicly as a gay man. This week, on the premiere episode of his new show Anderson Live, Cooper opened up about his coming out by explaining to viewers that he had already come out as gay … way back in high school. Check out the video above to hear Anderson talk about his coming out for the first time since his most recent coming out … which took place years after his first coming out in high school. For a guy who some say took a long time to come out, he surely has come out a lot.
But Says Both Are Okay... Kind Of
Filmmaker Nick Cassavetes has given us so many reasons to love him. The Notebook. Alpha Dog. John Q. And I just found out he was an extra in Johnny Depp‘s Blow. That’s awesome.

"I think honestly, some people who think they're gay, they're confused"
When Frank Ocean‘s debut album Channel Orange dropped this summer, the artist received a slew of positive reviews. Among many great artists (like Prince), Frank was compared to the legendary singer/musician Stevie Wonder. So in a recent interview with The Guardian, Frank Ocean– and his recent coming out- came up and Stevie Wonder made a few statements that some people found problematic. Was he being homophobic (or at least, insensitive), or were his words misunderstood? The story’s inside.
“The fight for gay marriage is, in reality, a fight for all of our rights."
Playboy founder/editor/mogul Hugh Hefner takes up the issue of marriage equality in an editorial in the September issue of Playboy magazine. Altho the issue has yet to hit newsstands, the text of his editorial has made its way to the Internets. As you can read below, Hefner makes an impassioned case that the matter of marriage equality is not only a fight for gay rights but it is also a fight for the rights of every US citizen, which is something that I completely agree with.

Progress In Mexico
Back in December of 2009, the capital city of Mexico City legalized same-sex marriage in Mexico. Today we learn that the Mexican Supreme Court has ruled on that legalization by ordering that all 31 Mexican states recognize the same-sex weddings that have been and will be performed in Mexico City. For example, the US state of New York has legalized same-sex marriage but the other 49 US states are not required to recognize those marriages. Because of this ruling, same-sex couples who get married in Mexico City and then move to another state will be afforded the same rights as married heterosexual couples anywhere in the country of Mexico. This is amazing! More »

AKA For Expressing Herself
The last Madge suit we heard about involved an allegedly hidden sample in Vogue, but this is a lawsuit of a different order. Her MDNA tour stopped in St. Petersburg, Russia on August 9, and Madonna had big plans for her performance. She used the stage to address new laws in Russia that ban so-called gay/lesbian ‘propaganda’ or promotion. After speaking out against this law and the homophobic mentality behind it, Madonna is being sued by Russian anti-gay groups for over $10 million. She has, apparently, corrupted their youth. Deets inside.
A Star (General) Is Born
In September of 2011, the US military’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Policy banning gays from openly serving in the armed forces was officially repealed. Today we learn that the US Army has just promoted its first ever openly gay general. Brigadier General Tammy Smith was presented with her general’s star at her promotion ceremony a few days ago and in one fell swoop made US history. An event like this would’ve been unheard of just a couple of years ago but as our country moves forward — slowly but surely — toward equal rights for all citizens, events like this will become more commonplace … to the point of mundaneness.
