laverne-cox-time-magazine

When TIME’s recent annual list of the 100 most influential people failed to include Laverne Cox despite having considerable support on the publication’s people reader’s poll, it immediately prompted a backlash. Not surprisingly, a social media campaign emerged using the hashtag #whereisLaverneCox. Fast forward a couple of months later and Cox receives her own solo cover and on her birthday to boot. Happy Birthday guuuuurrrrl.

The Orange Is The New Black actress is front and center for the publication’s “The Transgender Tipping Point” piece. The cover story “examines the radical rise in awareness of transgender Americans and how this movement is reshaping our definitions of gender.” In the accompanying interview, Laverne talks about her childhood suicide attempt and how she feels people’s attitudes toward the transgender community have changed.

On When She First Felt She Might Be Transgendered

“I tell this story about third grade. My third grade teacher called my mom and said ‘Your son is going to end up in New Orleans wearing a dress.’ Up until that point I just thought that I was a girl and that there was no difference between girls and boys. I think in my imagination I thought that I would hit puberty and I would start turning into a girl.”

yanis-marshall-britains-got-talent

I first stumbled upon Yanis Marshall last year when he posted a video of himself with a couple of friends dancing to Spice Girls on Parisian streets. Since then he’s appeared everywhere including So You Think You Can Dance Ukraine. Currently he’s competing on Britain’s Got Talent with his dance troupe consisting of Arnaud and Mehdi.

The trio just reached the finals all thanks to a wicked routine to a medley of campy gay favorites including “Let’s Have a Kiki,” “Bad Romance,” “Bad Girl,” “Proud Mary” and “Supermodel (Of The World).” In other words, every sassy diva. Check out their utterly sick dance moves below. My favorite part takes place on the conveyor belt.

For someone who loves lady parts, Ellen DeGeneres sure has an obsession with male strippers. Is she a secret homosexual ;)

No matter what occasion ranging from birthdays to engagements, the daytime talk show host’s go-to gift for her guests are chiseled oiled up men. Where do I sign up? The latest recipient was Leah Remini. The former King of Queens actress really got into it, go as far as handling the merchandise. Lucky bitch ;) Check out the video below.

Olympian John Fennell Comes Out

As if luge wasn’t already gay enough. Now we have a member of the family competing in the sport. John Fennell who competed at the 2014 Sochi Olympics came out as gay in an interview with the Montreal Gazette. The 19-year-old Canadian Olympian placed 27th in the singles luge event in Russia.

“It’s suffocating,” Fennell says about living in the closet. “You have to play this game of, ‘who knows?’ You can’t let off any vibes or secrets. You have to act super macho. You have to be hyper aware of your mannerisms and to not let off any vibes that could get detected. It’s very exhausting.”

Fennell also talks to the publication about his experience at the Sochi Olympics amid the country’s extremely anti-gay propaganda law.

“I was a little distraught over the lack of leadership going into Sochi,” he says of competing in Russia. “There were a few out girls, but to my knowledge there weren’t any out guys, and I know they’re there.

“I’m an athlete. Realistically, I put on a spandex suit and slide down a mountain.

I’m no message board for political movements. But we need to have leaders in our sport community. If it takes a 19-year-old to step up and do that, I’m more than willing to use my voice or the platform that I’ve been given to give a figurehead to gay youth in sport.”

Fennell comes from an athletic family. His father is former Canadian Football League superstar David Fennell and the younger brother of Michigan State nose tackle David Fennell Jr. Check out more pics of John below.

Sam Smith Officially Comes Out

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Donovan, Totally GAY!
sam-smith-coming-out

Sam Smith has always been a bit ambiguous about his sexuality. Last week, he somewhat addressed the speculation by pining over some dude in his “Leave Your Lover” music video. In an interview with The Fader, the 22-year-old English singer-songwriter makes it official by revealing the inspiration for his forthcoming debut album, In The Lonely Hour, was a guy.

“I’ve never been in a relationship before. I’ve only been in unrequited relationships where people haven’t loved me back. I guess I’m a little bit attracted to that in a bad way. In the Lonely Hour is about a guy that I fell in love with last year, and he didn’t love me back. I think I’m over it now, but I was in a very dark place. I kept feeling lonely in the fact that I hadn’t felt love before. I’ve felt the bad things. And what’s a more powerful emotion: pain or happiness?”

Even though he’s only now officially come out, many had assumed he was a sister when he revealed himself as a future pop diva in the vein of his idols, Elton John and George Michael. Check out more quotes from the publication below. Welcome to the family Sam.

robert-deniro-gay-dad-documentary

I had no idea Robert De Niro’s dad was gay, did you? Just in time for Father’s Day, the Raging Bull actor talks about his late father, Robert De Niro Sr. in an upcoming HBO documentary and emotional interview with OUT magazine. His father was a struggling artist who was openly gay.

“We were not the type of father and son who played baseball together, as you can surmise. But we had a connection,” – Robert De Niro

Originally, junior intended to make a film simply for his kids but felt the responsibility to talk about his father’s legacy. “I felt I had to. I felt obligated. It was my responsibility to make a documentary about him,” he says. “It was not intended to be on HBO. It was just something I wanted to do.”

De Niro himself has never played a gay character in his career. OUT magazine asked him if his personal past had anything to do with that decision. Robert reveals, “No, they weren’t offered to me. If they had been offered to me by a good director, that’s something I would have considered.”

On His Favorite Piece Made By His Father

Oh, I have a lot. I have Venice by Night at my house. I love the ones at Locanda Verde, at the grill upstairs on the second floor. There are a lot of black-and-whites that are terrific. I like the delicacy of them, the refinement. They have a certain kind of clarity. They’re really great.

the-normal-heart-ratings

Due to the Memorial Day long weekend, the Nielsen ratings for The Normal Heart were delayed. At long last, the numbers are in.

Ryan Murphy’s adaptation of The Normal Heart netted just under one million viewers for its 9pm airing and scored an additional 434,000 eyeballs for the 11:15 showing. Overall, the movie garnered 1.4 million viewers across its two Sunday airings. The premiere ranks as the fifth most-watched movie of the 17 movies HBO has aired since 2010. Last Memorial Day, the network aired Behind The Candelabra which generated 2.35 million viewers.

As I previously wrote, I enjoyed it despite at times being uncomfortable to watch. I thought it was by far Taylor Kitsch’s best work to date, adding both Mark Ruffalo and Matt Bomer delivered solid performances with the former deserving an Emmy nod. My only gripe with regards to the cast was Julia Roberts. I felt she was extremely miscast and felt watching her scenes felt like Erin Brokovich the wheelchair version. Did you watch it? Are you surprised by the ratings? Share your thoughts below.

taylor-kitsch-best-shirtless-moments

Before we get to the wonderfulness that is Taylor Kitsch shirtless, can we briefly chat about The Normal Heart? Did you watch Ryan Murphy’s adaptation of Larry Kramer’s award-winning play which aired on HBO Sunday night? The film chronicled the HIV-AIDS epidemic in New York City during the early 80s.

At times it was a little uncomfortable to watch but I absolutely enjoyed it. It was by far Kitsch’s best work to date. Matt Bomer was also a revelation in his role as was Mark Ruffalo. If the latter doesn’t get a Golden Globe or Emmy nod I will be shocked. The weakest link in my opinion was Julia Roberts. It felt a little Erin Brokovich in a wheelchair for my liking. She was definitely miscast. Having said that, I’m sure without her, the film would’ve had a harder time getting made. Weigh in below on your thoughts on the movie.

Kitsch appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show last week to promote the HBO film. Naturally, up to this point, his best work consisted of the Canadian hunk strutting around shirtless. Being the wise woman that she is, Ellen highlighted the actor’s best moments without a top in one sexy montage. Check it out below.
