Gay Redheads Plot To Save Gingers From Extinction

Emergency: redheads on are on brink of extinction! Gingers are already genetically rare and now nature, that cruel mistress, has conspired to snuff out the red ones entirely. Everyone and anyone who was teased by being called “carrot top” in elementary school needs to band together for the propagation of the redheaded race. And that means you, too, gay redheads. Now is not the time for this homosexual stuff. [YouTube via Queerty] Keep reading »

Girl On Girl: What Goes Down At A Lesbian Bachelorette Party

I feel like I’ve been writing about weddings a lot, but I guess it’s just that time of year. I had my first experience buying bachelorette accessories for a lesbian wedding this month, as the first one I attended was my own, so I didn’t buy anything for myself. But for my best friend, I had to find the funniest stuff I could. This would have been easy if she were into penises, as they are all over the bachelorette schwag that sex stores sell.

Tide Thinks Your Little Girl Is A Big Ol’ Lesbian Because She Likes To Play With Blocks

Tide’s new “Hoodies & Cargo Shorts” commercial is all about a prissy mom’s squeamishness with her daughter’s tomboyish tendencies. But in case you missed the subtext: Pssst! The mom is worried her daughter is a L-E-S-B-I-A-N! The gay blog Queerty thinks Tide might be “lampooning” the Stepford mom’s behavior — and that’s probably a little of it — but this doesn’t read as satire to me. Advertising, as you know, is meant to connect with people by tapping into their deep-seated beliefs and/or fears. Nothing just “happens” in a commercial, including fanning the flames of homophobia.

Queen Latifah Finally Comes Out

“I just like ladies who have class. Period. And if it’s ‘T and A’ you’re sellin’, that’s fine, as long as that’s what you’re selling. But you don’t have to show everything, you know? You can hold some back and just be yourself and let your personality shine and let your individuality show. To me, that’s sexier. A confident woman is a sexy woman, in my opinion.”

Queen Latifah tells Sister 2 Sister magazine what kind of ladies she likes. This is significant because (A) Queen Latifah is amazing, and ladies should have some info on what reels her in and (B) because she’s never discussed her sexuality before. After years of dodging questions, especially since the speculation about the split between her and longtime girlfriend Jeanette Jenkins, props to Queen Latifah for opening up about her love for ladies. It’s not that I think a celebrities’ sexuality is any of our business. It’s just that the choice to be open about it — as a human being — is a powerful one. Queen Latifah is a role model for many women. I believe her decision to come out will only continue to inspire them. [Tabloid Prodigy] Keep reading »

Ex-Gay “Cuddle Therapy” Sounds Suspiciously Gay

Most of the things bigots do are just plain sad. Take “ex-gay therapy,” for example. A bunch of quacks claim that homosexuals can be “cured” of their same-sex attraction through what they call “gay aversion therapy,” but which is really just shaming and guilt-tripping. “Ex-gay therapy” is roundly criticized by actual psychologists. You can read all about the American Psychological Association’s distaste for gay aversion therapy here. But that has not stopped its practitioners — including Michele Bachmann’s husband! — from providing the service. Frequently these “ex-gay therapies” are run by religious individuals or organizations and the practice is euphemistically referring to as “praying the gay away.”

But sometimes, thank God, these very same bigots are hilariously funny. Take, for instance, when “ex-gay therapy” involves getting cuddled by a bunch of dudes. Keep reading »

The 5 Best And Worst Things About Going To Gay Bars With Your Boy Besties

I’ve been really fortunate to have found a wonderful handful of (gay) boy friends in my 28 years. They’re so supportive and confidence-boosting—at the same time they always keep it real with me. It goes without saying that the jokes and laughter never stop. We do dinner and movies on the regular and on those nights when I feel so possessed, we hit the “scene” and boy-bar hop all over NYC. I’ve had some of the greatest nights of my life with them, but I have to say there are some disadvantages to being the token girl at the boy bar.

After the jump, check out the pros and cons of going to male gay bars with your friends. Keep reading »

John Stamos Implies Ryan Seacrest Is Gay

“I play Corny Collins [in 'Hairspray'], he’s sort of a DJ. He hosts a music show, sort of like a straight Ryan Seacrest … Ryan’s a friend. We’ve kissed.”

John Stamos talks on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” about his role in an upcoming staging of “Hairspray,” and makes a crack at Ryan Seacrest, who has long been rumored to be gay even though he’s dating Julianne Hough of “Dancing with the Stars” and the upcoming “Footloose.” I have a feeling if John and Ryan were actually buddies, they aren’t anymore.

Girl On Girl: 5 Things I’m Not Allowed To Do Because I’m A Lesbian

Girl On Girl

This week I’ve had a few reminders of the rules that exist for gay girls like me in American society. But because I’m an optimist, I’d like to look the bright side of things I can’t do in public. Keep reading »

New Documentary “The Lavender Scare” Remembers When Gays Were Purged From Government

We all know at least a little bit about our government’s hyper-overreaction to “the red menace” back in the 1950s. Men and women throughout politics, the media and Hollywood lost their jobs if anyone thought they were a Communist or Communist-sympathizer. A lesser known story, however, is how the U.S. government also tried to get rid of homosexuals. Lesbians and gay men were thought to be “sex perverts” and could lose their jobs serving the U.S. government if anyone found out. A new documentary called “The Lavender Menace,” which is currently in production, introduces us to the men and women who lost their jobs during this time and shows how a few of them, including an adorable old man named Frank Kameny, fought back.

Jerry Seinfeld Performs A “Comic Intervention” On Jon Stewart

Everyone in the media has been scratching their heads on how to write about Rep. Michele Bachmann‘s bigotry towards gays and her husband Marcus Bachmann’s work “treating” gays in so-called “ex-gay therapy.” He apparently said gay people are “barbarians” that need to be “educated” and “disciplined.” Do we report this as straight news? Blow a gasket over how cruel and dehumanizing they are? Even Jon Stewart struggled with how to report on Marcus Bachmann on last night’s episode of “The Daily Show.” That’s when Jerry Seinfeld came to the rescue and prescribed a spoonful of “ex-comic therapy.”
