“I’m queer. I have a lot of really wonderful friends who are of very different sexes and genders. I am very much in love with no one in particular. I’ve been trying to figure out relationships, you know? I don’t know if it’s responsible for kids of my age to be so aggressively pursuing monogamous binds, because I don’t think we’re ready for them.

I do feel that it’s possible to be at this age unintentionally hurtful, just by being irresponsible — which is fine. I’m super down with being irresponsible. I’m just trying to make sure my lack of responsibility no longer hurts people. That’s where I’m at in the boyfriend/girlfriend/zefriend type of question.”
One thing I love about actor Ezra Miller — who blew my mind in “We Need To Talk About Kevin” — is that he’s such a lucid stoner. And at such a young age! This statement — given to Out magazine – is really quite smart and thoughtful, and it’s awesome to see a 19-year-old dude be so mindful of the way his innate youthful selfishness affects others.

Miller doesn’t get any deeper into explaining his “queerness,” but it seems like he’s disinterested in defining his sexuality on narrow terms. Good for him! [Out]

Frank Ocean recently revealed on Tumblr that he was in love with a 19-year old man in the summer of 2007, when Frank was also 19. Kanye West and Frank Ocean lovers – could it be?
Yes, we know Kanye West and Pharrell Williams weren’t nineteen in the summer of 2007 (sounds like a Bryan Adams song gone wrong), but many pundits and Scientologists believe that this was a cover-up. Could it be? Say it isn’t so! Frank is known as one of Kanye’s protégés and he views Pharrell Williams as his idol. Read more…
“When I found out that Jamey Rodemeyer killed himself — I felt deeply troubled. But when I found out that Jamey Rodemeyer had made an ‘It Gets Better’ video only months before taking his own life — I felt indescribable despair. … In light of Jamey’s death — it became clear to me in an instant that living a gay life without publicly acknowledging it — is simply not enough to make any significant contribution to the immense work that lies ahead on the road to complete equality. Our society needs to recognize the unstoppable momentum toward unequivocal civil equality for every gay lesbian bisexual and transgendered citizen of this country. … I believe in the power of intention to change the landscape of our society — and it is my intention to live an authentic life of compassion and integrity and action.”
– Zachary Quinto, who played Spock in J.J. Abrams “Star Trek” movie, confirmed reports that he is gay in a blog entry posted to his website. The blog post was prompted by an interview with Quinto in this week’s issue of New York in which he “officially” confirmed for the first time that he is gay after somewhat dodging rumors for years.
