Today, in an interview with Robin Roberts of ABC News, President Barack Obama made his position on gay marriage very clear: “I think same-sex couples should be able to get married.

“You know when I go to college campuses, sometimes I talk to college Republicans who think that I have terrible policies on the economy, on foreign policy, but are very clear that when it comes to same-sex equality or, you know, sexual orientation, that they believe in equality. They are much more comfortable with it. You know, Malia and Sasha, they have friends whose parents are same-sex couples. There have been times where Michelle and I have been sitting around the dinner table and we’re talking about their friends and their parents and Malia and Sasha, it wouldn’t dawn on them that somehow their friends’ parents would be treated differently. It doesn’t make sense to them and, frankly, that’s the kind of thing that prompts a change in perspective.”

Excerpts of the interview will air tonight on “World News With Diane Sawyer,” as well as tomorrow morning on GMA. ABC’s “Good Morning America” Thursday. Watch the clip from the interview below where Obama explains his position and the evolution of his stance on this issue.

Out4Marriage is a new campaign where ordinary people, celebrities, politicians and others record videos explaining why they believe that love is the same, straight or gay and are therefore coming Out4Marriage.

The campaign is being launched at a critical time in the UK for LGBT rights as the Government is proposing under serious opposition to introduce marriage equality. The campaign will be spreading its focus from the UK to other parts of the world as well. In fact, we were informed about the campaign from Benjamin Cohen and who was eager to help get the word out for this important campaign.

Given what just happened in North Carolina and what the UK is going through at the moment just to name a couple, there is so much work to be done and more voices need to be heard in order for us to reach a society of equality everywhere. Love is the same, straight or gay. Check out some of the touching videos that have been uploaded thus far from people in the UK that are Out4Marriage.

Queen Latifah, once again, is the centre of speculation regarding her sexuality. Rumours are afloat (and the keyword here is rumours). Did the twittersphere jump the gun on her coming out announcement?

In Episode 26, Season 3 of MTV Canada’s 1 Girl 5 Gays Aliya-Jasmine posed the question: “Gay men who out other gay men are [BLANK]”.

The issue of outing another gay man is an interesting topic because, like most issues, there are two sides to it. One issue, as Jake mentioned, is that it is understandable for people to be “out” in the LGBT community because it signifies or represents the individual’s comfort and “proudness” of who they are. Why would you want to hide your true self, especially when there is increasing support for LGBT members in mainstream culture these days? The other issue is that it is the person’s decision himself or herself. When this person is ready to say, “I’m gay”, then this person is ready to become an open and well-received member to the LGBT community. Until then, even if we personally know, we must respect his or her decision to remain “closeted” so-to-speak. I’m taking both sides because I’ve personally experienced such a situation.

Coincidently, less than one week after last week’s episode of ‘What Would You Do‘ where they tackled transgender descrimination with the help of Carmen Carera, for the first time ever, a major rock star has come out as transgender with Tom Gabel of ‘Against Me!‘ revealing to Rolling Stone plans to become a woman. Gabel explained to the magazine the secret struggle with gender dysphoria and that the process of transition will soon begin by taking hormones and undergoing electrolysis treatments.

The singer will remain married to her wife Heather who has been supportive through the process and plans to stick by her. “For me, the most terrifying thing about this was how she would accept the news,” says Gabel. “But she’s been super-amazing and understanding.”

Gabel knows that it’s not going to be easy. “I’m going to have embarrassing moments,” says Gabel, “and that won’t be fun. But that’s part of what talking to you [Rolling Stone] is about – is hoping people will understand, and hoping they’ll be fairly kind.” The full story hits new stands on Friday, May 11 where she reveals more about her history with gender dysphoria, becoming Laura Jane Grace, and what it means for her band, Against Me! Check out some of their most popular music videos & songs below.

Who’d You Rather: Daigle VS Wikle

In: Patrick, Totally GAY!

With Big Brother just around the corner, it seems like perfect timing to highlight a couple of the hotties from past seasons and see who you’d want to be head of your household – wink 😉 For this weeks “Who’d You Rather,” we’ve got two openly gay southern hotties that have proven they are not shy when it comes to cameras…and taking their clothes off.

Will Wikle was in Season 5 of Big Brother and was evicted 6th and a member of the jury. After the show, he went on to have his own show on the Logo network called ‘Round Trip Ticket‘ and was also cast as the villain the gay spoof sequel, ‘Another Gay Sequel: Gays Gone Wild!‘. Despite his life in the spotlight, he’s still a nurse and finds that have a regular job like that helps keep him centred.

Steven Daigle was evicted on Day 16 of Season 10 of Big Brother and was known as the “Gay Cowboy“. The geographic consultant & rodeo champion has since went on to venture into gay porn and not surprisingly has become quite popular in this realm.

Both men are are hotties, so I imagine it’s going to be a difficult choice. Check out some of their pictures below and vote for who you’d rather!

Last night, Patrick and I were fortunate enough to participate in Adam Bouska’s recent stop in Vancouver for his NOH8 Campaign. However, the night got a little cloudy for a minute when news broke that North Carolina voters had voted in favor of a gay marriage ban. The state overwhelming decided to define marriage between one man and one woman as the only legal union recognized by the state.

This vote makes North Carolina the 30th state in the United States to put a ban on gay marriage. The state already had a ban on same-sex marriage in the first place. However, this new amendment will make current civil unions and marriages between same-sex couples null and void. The voting results were posted at 60% in favor of the ban.

“Your efforts send a message to the state of North Carolina and to the country that we will not allow marriage to be redefined in this state,” Tami Fitzgerald, chair of Vote for Marriage NC, told supporters gathered in Raleigh. “The nation is watching North Carolina, and we have given them a high standard to follow.”

Model Behavior: Michele Rotters

In: Donovan, Totally GAY!

I hope you’re in the mood for a little sauerkraut and all things German today, because that’s the theme of my Model Behavior this week. Meet German model Michele Rotters. The sexy stud made a splash when he dropped trou and modeled for German underwear Nils Bohner. Rotters proved so popular for the brand that they booked him again for their newest campaign.

Despite my best efforts, I couldn’t discover too much in terms of biographical information on Michele. All I learned was he started his modeling career at the age of 18 a couple years ago. He’s definitely gotten better with age. Loving the sexy facial hair. Thankfully he’s outgrown his love for some really heinous hairstyles. The shorter ‘do certainly suits him better. Check out a few unflattering hair shots below along with plenty of underwear pics. Enjoy.

I swear, 2012 is the year of the underwear campaign videos. They’ve been popular before, but thanks to Andrew Christian (in my opinion), everyone’s had to kick it up a notch in terms frequency and uniqueness.

In this new video by aussieBum, the brand has Xander (the hot model) walking in slow motion through a field in the outback, on a “Journey” somewhere, which happens to be the name of this latest design that is available in “Hipster” & “Brief” in various vibrant colors.

The text that appears on the screen to spell out their ideology with this theme is as follows: “It’s your life. It’s your journey. Inspired by yours/ours/everyones… Journey“. Enjoy the video below!
