Ricky Martin Says Coming Out Wasn’t Easy

“I couldn’t take it anymore. It was too painful. But I guess the most important thing is my children. … When I was holding them in my arms I was like, ‘What, am I gonna teach them how to lie?’ … When I realized, ‘Okay, I just pressed send,’ whoo—I was alone. I was in my studio alone for a minute. My assistant walked in and I just started crying like a little baby. I started crying.”

Ricky Martin talks to Oprah about his decision to come out of the closet, and how he felt right after making the announcement. No wonder it took him so long. [PopEater] Keep reading »

11 Years Old And Out Of The Closet: The Trouble With Gay Middle Schoolers

We’re not just the first generation to elect a black president—some say we’re also the first generation in which gay teenagers feel safe coming out to their parents and classmates. In Sunday’s New York Times Magazine cover story, writer Benoit Denizet-Lewis chronicled how adolescents are so much more confident telling their friends, families and parents that they’re gay at younger ages than ever before. Just how young? The author spent time with middle schoolers across the country who’ve come out of the closet at 13, 12, and even 11 years old. Keep reading »

Is Anderson Cooper Coming Out Tonight?

Unvogue Magazine apparently exists and says that Anderson Cooper is totally going to show up at their Men’s Issue release party at Manhattan’s Sapphire Go-Go Lounge tonight, which they’ve playfully been referring to as “Anderson Cooper’s Big Fat Coming Out Party.” Though Anderson turned down an opportunity to host the event, he allegedly confirmed he will be attending and the Unvogue staff has been planning wine spritzers (really?) and are coordinating a lap dance called “A.C. 360″ for the occasion.

Fans React To Clay Aiken Coming Out

The biggest entertainment news to break this week is Clay Aiken’s revelation that he is indeed gay. This news really wasn’t surprising to me because my gaydar started beeping the second I first laid eyes on the former “American Idol” contestant. Since many of Clay’s fans didn’t have my intuition and have vehemently denied his homosexuality in the past, I thought it would be interesting to find out exactly what his fans think now.

Ellen Page Kinda, Sorta Comes Out On SNL

Did Ellen Page “come out” on Saturday Night Live? In this skit, the Juno star, who’s had gossip bloggers rumor-mongering about her sexuality for months, plays a straight girl who goes to a Melissa Etheridge concert and comes home overwhelmed with pro-female lust. But instead of ending the skit with a joke, as you would expect from the sketch comedy show, instead Page’s “boyfriend” (played by Andy Samberg) hugs her and gives some snarkless speech about self-acceptance. We don’t give a hoot whether Page is straight, gay, or has an outtie bellybutton — but we are stoked she was such an awesome SNL host! [Red Lasso] Keep reading »
