Google has launched a new campaign, Legalize Love, which hopes to end discrimination against homosexuals. At the Global LGBT Workplace Summit on Saturday in London, Google executive Mark Palmer-Edgecumbe introduced the campaign, sharing Google’s goals to “[develop] alliances with local companies and [support] grassroots organizing efforts in [other] countries.” The purpose of the campaign is not about necessarily legalizing gay marriage, but is more focused on supporting LGBQT workers in countries where homosexuality is criminalized.

Apparently, neglected drunk chicks in skimpy dresses at nightclubs aren’t the only ones willing to engage in lesbian action for attention. Bonobo monkeys do it too!

– Johnny Weir talks about his sexuality in his new memoir on what appears to be “Celebrities Talking About Maybe Being Gay Day.” The flamboyant ice skater decided to basically confirm what the universe already knew because “with people killing themselves and being scared into the closet, I hope that even just one person can gain strength from my story.” [People via Queerty] Keep reading »
My dad is gay.
It is usually after I have known you for a little while before I will say those words to you. Sometimes it’s our first long conversation, when people go through the whole “Where are you from; what do you do; where’d you grow up?” script that everyone in the world receives once they are old enough to attend any social events. And it’s after I say that that the real questions begin. Keep reading »
Hey laaaaaaaadiessssssss, wanna know how to tell if your husband/boyfriend is a homosexual? Christwire.org, a website which purports to provide “conservative values for an unsaved world,” has a list of 15 signs your man is a friend of Dorothy’s, “drawing on the expertise of spiritual and medical professionals.” Here are the ones that had never occurred to me. [UPDATE: Apparently, this is very well-written parody. Fooled me!] Keep reading »
