With NHL Hockey season underway, my mission this week was to find a hottie from the sport that I haven’t featured yet in a Sports Stud post. The difficult thing with hockey is that more often than not, they don’t have many pictures available – well, the kind that you want to see at least. That being said, I managed to select one that does: Paul Bissonnette.
This week’s stud is a Canadian professional ice hockey player and currently plays Left Wing with the Phoenix Coyotes. The 28-year old previously played for the Pittsburgh Penguins and is originally from Welland, Ontario. He tower’s at 6’3 and 230 lbs (at least in comparison to me… everyone is taller than I am). Due to his blunt and entertaining tweets, he is quite popular on Twitter (@BizNasty2point0), with almost half a million followers.
Recently, Bissonnette was given an automatic 10-game suspension for going after LA Kings forward Jordan Nolan after his hit on Rostislav Klesla during the pre-season game September 15. The suspension has since been reduced to three games and he had to pay $11,346.15 US instead of $37,820.51. Anyway, check out his photos below!
Even in death, Harvey Milk continues to make history. The US Postal Service is honoring Milk with a commemorative stamp. He will be the first out politico to receive such an honor. His nephew broke the news on Facebook yesterday.
“Breaking! It is official! The USPS will confirm this week that my uncle, Harvey Milk will be commemorated on a 2014 US postage stamp. Another first! My deep gratitude to everyone that supported this effort! More details including the image to come via USPS soon! ‘Hope Will Never Be Silent’ – that enduring message will be represented by Harvey’s image on millions of letters!” – Stuart Milk
Although Harvey only served 11 months in office before his assassination in 1978, he’s become an icon in the LGBT rights movement. A few of the honors he’s received posthumously include the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Obama and Time magazine naming him as one of their “100 Heroes and Icons of the 20th Century.” During his time in office as city supervisor, he passed a gay rights ordinance for San Francisco. Check out Milk immortalized as a stamp below.
First and foremost, Happy National Coming Out Day (NCOD) everyone. How do you plan on celebrating this gay holiday? Come out again? LOL. I kid.
The date of October 11 was chosen because it was the anniversary of the 1987 National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights where half a million people participated. In 1998, Robert Eichberg, a psychologist from New Mexico, and Jean O’Leary, an openly gay political leader from Los Angeles, made the holiday official and founded NCOD.
To mark the 25th anniversary, the Human Rights Campaign looks back at some of the trailblazing coming out moments in American media that raised the profile of LGBT Americans and sparked important dialogue about the fight for equality. Some of the famous LGBT celebrities featured in the clip include Ricky Martin, Jason Collins, Frank Ocean, Adam Lambert, Lance Bass and naturally Ellen DeGeneres.

I can’t think of a better way to spend the night before gorging on copious amounts of turkey than meeting Alyssa Edwards in person. Girlfriend was the STAR of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 5. B.Ames’ fan-made remix incorporating all her priceless one-liners is everything. I play it nonstop.
The entertainer extraordinaire hits Vancouver this weekend to perform at Oasis Ultra Lounge. Fellow writers Tommy and Matt are bringing her for one amazing night on Saturday, October 12. Tickets are only $20. Be sure to get there early as I’m sure this is going to sell out. DJ Domtop will be spinning all your favorite tracks while you enjoy $5 drink specials all night.

How do you follow up such critically-acclaimed movies like Monster’s Ball, Precious: Based on the Novel “Push” by Sapphire and The Butler? Easy. Film an action movie featuring a gay interracial couple. The 53-year-old director revealed this in an exclusive interview with OUT magazine.
The project is still in development, but Lee Daniels shared a few juicy details. He envisions it as a gay Mr. & Mrs. Smith but with two good-looking guys as the action heroes. In the end, we find out that they’re homosexuals and in a romantic relationship. Daniels also shared his intention of casting an interracial couple. One half of that crime-fighting duo would be Alex Pettyfer, who recently starred in his film, The Butler. I guess Pettyfer is his new male muse du jour, replacing Zac Efron who starred in Paperboy. Not a bad replacement if you ask me.
“Alex Pettyfer is in it, [but] I have to find the right black guy opposite him. He’s so hot, isn’t he? So hot. And so aware of his hotness in a way that’s so… I love him to death.” – Lee Daniels
Someone has a bit of a man crush, doesn’t he? Who would you cast opposite Pettyfer? Shemar Moore? Taye Diggs? Jesse Williams? Or someone else? Weigh in below, after checking out my favorite scene starring Alex Pettyfer.
Not that he was in bad shape before (because he wasn’t), but Usher amped up his workouts for a movie role. If you’re going to play the legendary Sugar Ray Leonard, you definitely have to be in tip top shape. The 34-year-old plays the iconic boxer in the upcoming film, Hands of Stone.
The Season 4 Voice coach opens up about the challenge of playing Leonard, workout mishaps and more for Men’s Health for their November 2013 issue. More importantly, the “Yeah!” singer shows the product of all his hard sweaty work at the gym. Check it out below.
“My commitment to this character demands that I not only physically get ready, but also become him. The hair, the personality, the manner he conducts himself in—all that. He’s an incredible man.”
Josh Hutcherson isn’t holding anything back for his interview with OUT magazine. Almost immediately, the 20-year-old reveals to the interviewer that he’s “mostly straight.” That declaration shouldn’t be too surprising considering, The Hunger Games star is the founder of the youth organization Straight But Not Narrow, which seeks to combat homophobia.
In addition to talking about his sexuality, Hutcherson discusses fame, his gay uncles’ legacy and a potential threesome with Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth. Just the very thought of the latter sends me in a horny tizzy. Check out a few quotes and photos from the latest issue of OUT below.
On His Sexuality
“Maybe I could say right now I’m 100% straight. But who knows? In a fucking year, I could meet a guy and be like, Whoa, I’m attracted to this person. I’ve met guys all the time that I’m like, Damn, that’s a good-looking guy, you know? I’ve never been, like, Oh, I want to kiss that guy. I really love women. But I think defining yourself as 100% anything is kind of near-sighted and close-minded.
Remember Freddie Prinze, Jr.? He was the go-to dark-haired hottie in teen movies back in the late 90s. Recently, we haven’t seen much of the now 37-year-old actor. Based on a new promo pic, we now know what he did last summer and the summer before that. He hit the gym hard and became a silver fox.
Freddie doesn’t appear until the fourth episode of Lifetime’s new drama Witches of East End, but the network is already promoting his debut. With so-so numbers for its premiere episode, Lifetime is wise to pimp out Prinze, Jr. This DILF is looking good with a bit of salt and pepper in his hair and with his shirt off. Sarah Michelle Gellar is one lucky gal. I bet he stakes Buffy all the time ;)
On Witches of East End, Prinze, Jr. plays Leo Wingate, a sweetly shy entomologist who falls head over heels for Wendy Beauchamp (Madchen Amick). His role is just a recurring one, but I highly suspect he’ll get promoted if he brings in massive viewers. Check out a couple promo pics below.
