The Williams Institute, a think-tank devoted to LGBT research at UCLA did a recent study that found that an estimated 9 million Americans identify themselves as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. That’s 4% of the entire American population. 1.8% of that 4 make up the bisexual chunk. It was also found that the bisexual identification is classified more in women than in men. This is the most up-to-date report of the population which actually test lower than than a percentage that is mostly commonly used by many LGBT groups done in 1948. That study found that 10% of the American population identified as LGBT.

What’s really interesting is that this study comes on the heels of another report published by the Institute of Medicine that emphasizes the need for more federal funding to research LGBT health problems. “Sexual orientation is complex, but measurable,” said Gary J. Gates, chief researcher and a Williams Distinguished Scholar. “Hopefully, this will begin to prompt some dialogue on what it means when we say LGBT.”

Did you know that 19 million Americans (8.2 percent of the population) said they had engaged in same-sex behavior, and 25.6 million (11%) acknowledged same-sex attraction. Many gay advocacy groups are saying the report is a critical first step to inform public policy, research and federal funding, crucial in identifying health and economic disparities, discrimination, domestic partnership benefits and the impact of same-sex marriage.

In: Patrick, TV Shows

The Jersey Shore cast have certainly made a living out of gym, tanning, laundry…and most importantly, partying. So how much will they be making next season?

Sports Stud: Kayne Lawton

In: Patrick, Sports & Health, Totally GAY!

This week, we’re going down (under) on Kayne Lawton, an Australian Rugby League Player for the Gold Coast Titans in the NRL. He started his rugby career in 2008 and his position is hooker. Surprisingly, this guy is only 21 years old! Not surprisingly, he’s already taken part in the elite and delicious Gods of Football photo shoots to show off his goods.

In his past interview for Gods of Football, he revealed that he has a lucky pair of leopard skin underwear, listens to Lady Gaga, and in a personal ad, would describe himself as “fun, sporty and relaxed”. They also asked him how it was to take off all his clothes in front of the camera, to which he replied, “Nerve wracking but towards the end it was good fun! Yep, I would do it again.”

Lawton has an incredible body, but he works at it. He lifts three 145kg reps on the bench press as a regular part of his intense workouts. Certainly, if he decides to quick rugby, he’s got a career in modelling.

SVEDKA Vodka really knows how to throw a party. After covering the red carpet at Logo’s NewNowNext Awards, Alex and I jetted over to SVEDKA’s “Night of a Billion Reality Stars” to join in on the fun. Thankfully, Lexington Social House was literally across the street, so we didn’t have to worry about getting stuck in LA traffic. Being a huge reality television fan, I jumped at the chance to be in a room full of reality TV’s most familiar faces. While there wasn’t a billion, if certainly felt like it. Every time I turned around, I was bumping into a reality star I loved. I’m talking to you Kyle Richards and Lo Bosworth.

The celebration marked SVEDKA Vodka’s partnership with on three comedic shorts which spoof the outrageous and inevitable future of reality TV and star Joan Rivers, Brian Austin Green, talking dogs and Jeff Probst, among others.  The first video in the series, which will roll out over a period of three consecutive weeks, premiered today, April 8, 2011. Here it is below:

“The Planet’s Most Extreme Model, Designer, Chef, Lover, Dancer, Drag Queen, Alien, Fish Wrangler From Outer Space,” a future competition show mash up, starring E!’s Gastineau Girls Brittny and Lisa Gastineau, The Bachelor’s Vienna Girardi and Real World Las Vegas roommate Trishelle Cannatella, hosted by Survivor’s Jeff Probst.

Joan Rivers kicked off the evening by premiering the off-color comedies to a room full of unscripted superstars.  They all watched and laughed as they accepted the inevitable: in the future, everyone will be famous!  After the films rolled, DJ Solange Knowles took to the turntables to spin for the gorgeous gala-goers. Who knew Beyonce’s sister was such a great DJ? I didn’t. At one point, I even went up to her and gave her a thumbs up for playing Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody“. Naturally, she laughed.

The entire venue was decorated with dozens of life-sized cutouts of reality stars. Every where you looked it was a reality television explosion. The restrooms were labeled Smush Rooms, books by reality stars riddled all the seating areas and there was even a confessional booth to take a picture. Check out Alex and my pic here. Special shout outs go to the delicious SVEDKA Vodka cocktails (Future Famous and Joan In a Jar were my favorite). Maybe I’m getting old, but the vodka sno-cone was toats strong. I couldn’t believe I had to nurse it. The duck confit was also quite tasty.

A US company called Adzookie wants to turn your home into a billboard to promote their mobile advertising business. In exchange, they’ll make your mortgage payments! You know what, if I didn’t live in a high rise, I’d be all over this. Why not? It’s better than selling ad space on your forehead. They’ll pay for your mortgage every month that it remains painted.

There are a few things they are looking for. You must own your home, not rent or lease it. They’d be painting the entire outside of the house (excluding the roof, windows, and awnings) which would take 3-5 days. You also must keep the ad paint up for a minimum of three months and up to a year. After three months, if you decide to cancel, they’ll repaint your house to the way it was.

Last night, new Glee favorite Darren Criss attended the Oxygen upfront presentation in New York where he cam to support the new show The Glee Project which will debut on Oxygen this summer. The show follows auditions all across America to search for that special someone to be cast in a 7 episode story arc in next season’s Glee. Darren Criss serves as one of the show’s mentors.

But that wasn’t the only thing that Darren Criss was talking about according to Access Hollywood. Are there talks of Darren Criss leaving Glee to do his own spin-off? “Hey, I’m just happy to be invited to the party,” Criss said. “A spin-off, whatever they want, I’m happy where I am.” So, he didn’t deny it but didn’t confirm it either. According to other reports, the Glee spin-off isn’t a totally a myth but Darren says that if it were to fly, he’s definitely in. “I think Blaine serves a really cool function in the grander scheme of ‘Glee,’ so I don’t think we need to focus particularly — you know, but if they want to do it, hey, I’m down! Whatever they want,” he said.
