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.

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.

Earlier this week, I wrote about vlogger Neil McNeil’s video where he corralled a couple handfuls of straight men to explore the wonders that is Grindr. Inspired by that clip, the folks over at another gay hookup app gathered up straights of their own to use their product. Jack’d headed to Santa Monica and convinced a quartet of hot guys for their experiment. Check out what these dudes have to say about this favorite gay pastime.

Sports Stud: Khan Porter

In: Patrick, Sports & Health, Totally GAY!

With a few sexy articles floating around on Facebook this week to do with Crossfit, it seemed like a good time to feature someone from Crossfit for this week’s Sports Stud. One of the articles had to do with a gym in Denmark that now offers nude CrossFit workouts, while the other was a BuzzFeed post titled “14 People Who Prove CrossFit Makes You Hotter“. One of the hotties from this list was none other than Khan Porter.

As the author of the BuzzFeed article explained, “He’s hot. He’s Australian. He’s headed to California for the 2014 Reebok CrossFit Games. Do you really need any more reasons to watch?” Khan is 24-years old and is a CrossFit competitor, coach, fitness model, and more. He grew up playing rugby, swimming and surfing.

Check out his incredible body in the photos below. I’ve also included his Instagram account below – you won’t regret following him… hot, hot, hot!

Not that it’s anyone’s business but Sam Smith has always been a bit ambiguous about his sexuality. In his new visual, the 22-year-old English singer-songwriter addresses the speculation by pining over some dude. Did Smith just come out or is it simply just the video’s narrative? I’m thinking the former and if that is indeed the case… BRAVO!!!

Smith first popped on my radar (and most people) with his amazing collaboration with Disclosure on “Latch.” He followed that up by appearing on Naughty Boy’s “La La La” and releasing his own hits including “Money On My Mind” and “Stay With Me.” His highly anticipated debut album In The Lonely Hour hits stores on June 17. Check out the video below about unrequited love. We’ve all been there when someone who has our heart doesn’t respond the same way. It’s the worst :(
