The Greatest & Gayest Headlines Of 2008

With the passing of Proposition 8, 2008 has left a bad taste in a lot of our mouths. But it would be sad to let a year full of PR triumphs for one of the hardest working and most outspoken communities slip by without acknowledging all the honors and milestones that have been achieved! So,…

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.
