Laura LaFrate from America’s Next Top Model is an out bisexual:"Being a lesbian or bisexual or gay, it’s not something that makes you different from anybody else. It just means that you have your own identity, and no one can take that away from you. And you should not feel bad for it, either. I went through a long time hating myself for it, but once you learn to accept it and embrace it, you can’t believe what life will bring to you." [read full interview on afterellen]

Joanna Hoffman, of Team NYC Urbana 2011, performs "Pride" at the Bowery Poetry Club Aug 2011.

Oh! This made me weep…! Amazing.

A while ago, I made the call for gay artists/musicians to send me their stuff. I’m now happy to be proudly presenting you to Ryan Shane Owen, a gay artist living in a small town in Canada. Check out his stop-motion music video which he’s been working on over the past 6 months. Quirky, dark electro-punk, and definitely delirious: it’s well worth watching. *dizzy*

‘It Gets Better’ for Gay Mormons, Too

Brigham Young University has been called one of the least LGBT-friendly campuses in the U.S.: according to the "It Gets Better" video produced by Brigham Young University students, 74 percent of LGBT students at BYU have considered suicide, and 24 percent have attempted suicide. The video was made by campus group Understanding Same-Gender Attraction (USGA), which is not officially recognized by the Mormon university. [source]

George Takei presents us with an interesting poll:

I love this man more than words can explain, and this is just one of the many reasons why.
He isn’t afraid to stand up for people who don’t have a voice and he’s got intelligent ways of doing so.

“After an incident of really bad gay sex”
Hahahahaha!

Brilliant. “Straights should be allowed to marry anyway”

RUBY ROSE"…Ruby’s presence in the Aussie tabloids are often prefaced with the descriptive "lesbian," which doesn’t bother Ruby as much when it might be relevant. The thing is, a lot of the time, it isn’t.
"Some of the time, I feel like it’s so unnecessary — it’s already a non-article. If it’s like ‘Ruby was seen with a friend having coffee and she identifies as a lesbian,’ it’s like, that’s not even an article! Come on — writing that I’m a lesbian before my name doesn’t make it more interesting," Ruby said. "Why does everything have to be about Ruby being a lesbian? If I’m at a gay rally and it’s about gay marriage or something that actually involves my relationships — ‘Celbridyke’ and what’s the other one? ‘Celesbian.’ It’s sort of derogatory when it shouldn’t be because I’m proud of it and I embrace it."-[read the rest of the interview on After Ellen]

Ask yourself what you are worried about if same-sex marriage is legalized. Whatever your answer is, ask yourself if you really believe what you just came up with. Homosexuality is not going to spread. It is not communicable. Society is not going to turn into a Lady Gaga video. Most gay couples I know are just as boring as you and I. They sit on the couch and watch television. They work at the post office, the hospital, the grocery store, and at real estate agencies, just like heterosexuals do. They eat out at restaurants and shop at Target. Many have pot bellies and don’t have much fashion sense, just like me. They own pets, and go to church. They volunteer, sing Christmas carols, and buy Girl Scout cookies. What are you afraid of? What is going to change by allowing these people to commit to one another and enjoy the benefits that you and I enjoy: tax breaks, insurance breaks, bereavement leave, medical leave to care for a sick partner, domestic violence protection, visitation of partner in the hospital, burial determination, medical decisions on behalf of partner. Really sexy stuff. You and I take these things for granted. Nobody wants to go through life not knowing how they will deal with some of these difficult moments in life. Imagine if you were denied any of the above rights when the time came for you and your spouse to exercise that right? I’ll tell you what it would feel like. It would feel like you were a second-class citizen.

WHAT THE FRIGGIN’ NORA?

A spin-off of the web phenomena that is "Lesbians who look like Justin Bieber", this blog is pretty much exactly the opposite...

So, this blog started off as a joke - it’s nothing against the Bieb, just simply that not every lesbian looks like him… In fact, what happened was the more we searched for new posts, the more we discovered that there’s a lot of encouraging, inspiring & sexy stuff out there!

We’re just sharing what we buzz off. Here we have a celebration of the time we live in. It’s a sneaky peek into open closets from the past and the present. It’s also become a place to share triumphs of our community, the highs and lows of our generation (mostly the highs) and just generally brilliant and important stuff relating to all things gay.

If you have any questions, please ask. If you have any suggestions, please make them known. If you have any revelations, please reveal. If you want to share, please open up. You are amazing and this is for you.
