"I'd really especially like to thank my beautiful family: Simon, Kit, Walker, Henry"
Actor Matt Bomer, who stars in the hit series White Collar and will be featured in the upcoming male stripper film Magic Mike, has come out as a gay man this week. Bomer has never really shied away from living his life openly and honestly but he has never actually spoken publicly about his longtime relationship with his partner Simon Halls (who is also the father of Bomer‘s 3 children). Over the weekend, Bomer was honored with an award at the Desert AIDS Project’s Steve Chase Humanitarian Awards and in his acceptance speech, acknowledged his partner and their children … essentially publicly acknowledging his homosexuality :) More »

20 Years, 23 Seasons, 500 Episodes
Matt Groening’s bigger-than-iconic cartoon sitcom about a family of yellow people, which is both high and low culture, has run 23 seasons and will air it’s 500th episode on Sunday, February 19th. This is a huge achievement! Two decades ago, it was considered “dangerous” and evangelists and politicians denounced The Simpsons as “a televised toxin that weakened parental authority and coarsened the culture”. Today, it is quoted more than anything else. I’ve actually heard friends of mine use Homer’s lines to explain things in their own lives. Check out some of the pics from the The Simpsons’ 500th Episode fan party on February 8th. This week we should all celebrate Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie…true pop icons! More »

Washington Becomes the 7th US State to Legalize Gay Marriage
Last week the Washington State legislature passed a bill legalizing same-sex marriage in the State of Washington and earlier today, Governor Christine Gregoire signed that bill into law. Washington today becomes the 7th state in the US where same-sex marriage is legal. The law will not go into effect until June and opponents of marriage equality are already planning their attempts to overturn the law but … no matter … today is another day of jubilation and celebration of the advancement of equal rights for all in this country.

WA Becomes the 7th State to Legalize Marriage Equality
Amazing news to pass along today … just one day after the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that California’s Proposition 8 ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional, the Washington State House of Representatives voted yesterday to legalize same-sex marriage in the State of Washington. The Washington State Senate approved the bill last week and now that the entire WA State legislature has passed the bill, all that is required is the signature of Democratic governor Christine Gregoire for the bill to become law! Gregoire has promised that she will sign the bill into law next week, then Washington will be the 7th State in the United States of America to legalize same-sex marriage. More »

Best. Idea. EVER!
It’s been a little bit since our dear Britney Spears made a guest appearance on TV … as you may recall, in recent years Brit Brit made appearances on Glee and How I Met Your Mother. It would seem that Britney has got the itch to act again because she seems very interested in making a guest appearance on the ABC comedy series Modern Family. Britney innocently (on purpose?) tweeted her love for the show … and that love has inspired a grassroots campaign to try and get her to appear on the show! Read on to learn more. More »
