Loving & Marriage

Mildred Loving, the aptly named civil rights leader and last victim to be criminally tried for interracial marriage, passed away last Friday, at the age of 68. In 1958, she happily married a white man she had been in love with since grade school. Subsequently, she and her husband, Robert, were arrested and forced into exile with their children for violating Virginia’s Jim Crow laws, but she refused to undo their “I do’s.” Loving fought for love and took her trials all the way to the Supreme Court — where she and her husband got 17 states’ racist laws slashed. Although she only wanted to be a bride, Loving became an American heroine and she will live on through her heart, which was big enough to change this country. [AP] Keep reading »

Slideshow: Super Hot Messes At The Met

We saved the mess for last! There was ever so much to choose from, especially given the Gala’s “Superheroes: Fashion & Fantasy” theme. Some people didn’t even try, some people hit the nail on the head, and some just went too dang far. All this has us wondering what next year’s theme should be…how about Dressing Up In Drag? Click here for ten more crazy, daring, hostile-to-the-eyes outfits. Keep reading »

The Daily Hotness: Rufus Wainwright

Today is the 140th Birthday of homosexuality! We’re sure gays have been around way longer than that, but 140 years ago the word “homosexuality” was coined. In honor of that great addition to the English language, we’ve picked the awesome singer/songwriter/musician Rufus Wainwright as our Daily Hotness. The ‘mos are lucky to have you Rufus. And so is the word “sexy”. Keep reading »

Romance On TV: Being Gay Is So Not Cool On The Upper East Side

Gossip Girl delved into major Melrose Place territory when (SPOILER ALERT!!!) it was revealed, kind of, sort of, that Serena may have killed someone and that’s what evil Georgina is holding over her head. Whatever. The reason to watch last night was to finally see, once and for all, which character was going to come out of the closet. We’ve known for weeks that it was going to be Serena’s lil’ bro, but it was a nice added touch that he’s been snogging Jenny’s posh boyfriend. Also, Jenny is really falling from grace in our eyes, by actually going along with the dork’s plan to pretend the two are sleeping together — which would “raise” her social status and keep his gayness quiet. Anyway, here’s a clip from the episode when that infamous gay bomb is dropped. Keep reading »

In The Shades Of Red

“Read my lips, no new taxes.” While recession president George Bush Sr. may have been lying about the taxes, he got the lips part spot on.

    Slideshow: Lovely Ladies To The Rescue!

    There were so many people at this dang Gala, it felt like more of an event than the Academy Awards (which is a pretty big event in celeb land). We could have included so many more — Emmy Rossum, Fergie-Ferg, Molly Sims, etc. — but these ten ladies about the jump stood out the most. We would have done more, but our slideshow program (and our Emily, who does the photo uploading) would have exploded. Click here to see all the fanciful fanciness. Keep reading »

    Stealing A Friend’s Friend

    Even as adults, we deal with the same issues we did when we were in grade school, i.e., “She stole my friend!” Friend poaching, as the Seattle Times calls it, has always been a problem, largely because we don’t have the same rules in friendships that we have in relationships. There aren’t accepted rules like “Thou shalt not date a friend’s ex without permission” in the world of friends. Having a friend stolen from you really sucks, and I should know because it happened to me in middle school. However, the practice works out really well for the poacher, who knows this new person must be at least semi-cool since their friends approve of her. Facebook has made friend poaching really easy. Go to a party, meet someone knew, friend them the next day. Some people would call this “networking,” and it is, until you stop hanging out with the person who introduced you. But maybe friend poaching is just a way of alerting you that you shouldn’t be friends with your friend anymore. Thoughts? [Seattle Times] Keep reading »
