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 »
Three residents of the Isle of Lesbos (no thatâ€™s not a euphemism, they really live there) are suing the Greek Gay and Lesbian Union, Olke, over the use of the word â€œLesbian.â€ Although the plaintiffs claim theyâ€™re cool with the lifestyle, they want to stop the confusion and reclaim the name solely for people from the region. Theyâ€™re loud, theyâ€™re proud, and theyâ€™re used to calling themselves Lesbians. But the term actually comes from one of the most famous Lesbians, in both meanings of the word, Sappho, a writer in Ancient Greece who wrote love poems to other women. Despite the ridiculousness of the charges of â€œpsychological and moral rapeâ€ of their label, the case, supported by a member of a local pagan group and two other inhabitants, will be heard in a court in Athens sometime in June.

Soap operas love drama with a cheesy soundtrack, but unfortunately, thereâ€™s a small chorus of haters for As The World Turns. This season the show has broken ground with their two new characters, Luke and Noah, a committed gay couple. Okay, so theyâ€™ve kissed three times on screen and theyâ€™re already moving in together, but theyâ€™re so cuteâ€¦and so controversial. The American Family Association wants people to protest all Proctor & Gamble products (Tide, Crest, and Pampers are among them) because they say the company, which produces ATWT, “promotes the homosexual agenda”. To see where America really stands, P&G, who included the gay love story on the show in an effort to show diversity, has set up a hotline. If you want to see more of these two hunks kissing, you can call the number to support Luke & Noah. You donâ€™t have to give your name or any information, just a push of a button so they can keep pushing each otherâ€™s.

Australia has always seemed like a cool place to me, and now, in the gay community, it’s going to be a little bit more awesome (but just a little). The government said today that it plans to remove discrimination against same-sex couples from 100 or so laws. Under the proposed changes, gay couples in long-term relationships will be treated the same as other couples, as far as taxation, welfare and employment entitlements, and other areas, Attorney General Robert McClelland said. However, there are no plans to allow same-sex marriages. Come on, mate, why not? [Bloomberg] Keep reading »
Sex sells. But does doggy-style make shoppers want cheap, trendy tops? Our gal pal Heather is way into Forever 21, but she did a double take when she saw their mannequins doubled over and sent us a picture. Usually when we pose like this, the lights are out and weâ€™ve had a couple drinks, but apparently thatâ€™s just the look the store in New York Cityâ€™s Union Square is going for. Guess working it from behind is always in style!

Bond, James Bond has a reputation for bedding hot ladies, but if Daniel Craig gets his way, 007 may have a steamy scene with a man. “Why not? I think in this day and age, fans would have accepted it. No one would bat an eyelid.” Would James’ paramours be referred to as “Bond guys”? [ContactMusic.com] Keep reading »
Not like we have a shot now, but a new biography claims Clark Gable, aka Rhett Butler from Gone With The Wind was gay. Although The New York Times and a lot of other publications think itâ€™s a load of bull, at the very least itâ€™s karma. The handsome Hollywood hunk was a notorious homophobe. In fact, thatâ€™s one of the reasons they cast queeny Charles Laughton, who regularly brought his boyfriend to the set, to star opposite Gable in Mutiny on the Bounty. The studio thought they could create on screen tension from the behind the scenes brawls. The new novel, Clark Gable: Tormented Star, by celebrity-obsessed author David Bret, now claims the oversexed Gable was publicly overreacting to cover up his prostitution and private predilection for men. It even asserts that comedienne Carole Lombard, his fourth wife, didnâ€™t mind that he was doing it with her personal designer, William Haines. Scandalous! [After Elton] Keep reading »
Happy Hump Day! We here at The Frisky would like to salute the hump and its oh-so-important role in our lives. However, who you like to hump shouldnâ€™t dictate whose lives you can save. Unfortunately, the FDA doesnâ€™t agree. We were totally shocked when our gay boyfriend told us he couldn’t participate in a blood drive because of his sexual orientation! The FDA’s outdated blood donation policies exclude gay men or any man who has ever even fooled around with another guy since the late 70â€™s — so even a meaty mÃ©nage Ã trois could make you too gay for the FDA. Also by proxy, any woman who has hooked up with a bisexual or gay guy — umm, hi! — is also ineligible for blood donation for a year. Keep reading »
