Zachary Quinto Blogs About His Coming Out

"we are witnessing an enormous shift of collective consciousness"

Yesterday news spread very quickly that actor Zachary Quinto casually came out as gay in an interview with New York magazine. While I yearn for the day the “coming out” is no longer necessary, newsworthy or controversial, I must reiterate my happiness with the way that Zachary handled the situation. Instead of making a big deal about coming out, Quinto just very casually referred to himself as a gay man in the course of his conversation with New York mag. But, later in the day, Zach posted a message on his official blog that clarified and explained why he decided to come out now. Click below and read his very powerful message. More »

Zachary Quinto Comes Out As A Gay Man

No Big Deal

Actor Zachary Quinto is gay. And it’s no big deal … at all. In a new interview with New York magazine, Zac talks about his recent performance in the play Angels In America and he reveals how important it was for him as a gay may to give his best performance possible. Just like that … no big announcement, no hoopla for media attention, no magazine coverstory. Just in passing, while talking about his work, Quinto casually refers to himself as a “gay man”. And that, my friends, is how it should be done. More »

This Is Where I Stand

Maroon 5′s Adam Levine Does ‘Out’ Magazine

"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 »

NYC Is For Lovers

The TV Guide

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 »

‘Sesame Street’s Bert & Ernie Are Not Getting Married

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 »
