Both Dustin Lance Black and Frank Ocean addressed the tragic events in Orlando in separate powerful essays shared today. Black, who is on location in Vancouver filming the ABC LGBT miniseries When We Rise, urged “It’s time to disarm hate” in his powerful letter, while Ocean covers a wide range of topics from sharia law to transgender rights and his own experiences as a child in his tumblr post.

“We must also act in more immediate ways that will protect not only LGBT people, but all citizens. My LGBT community has experienced the same kind of senseless violence that schoolchildren and their families have experienced, and that communities of color have suffered for generations. If there is one shining light in the darkness of our mourning, it is that we are not alone in this fight, and the time has come for LGBT people to join hands with others who have also suffered and demand gun control now,” Black writes for Entertainment Weekly.

Lean On” recently hit a peak of No. 9 on the latest Billboard Hot 100. Even though it’s still climbing the chart, that isn’t stopping Major Lazer from dropping another summer-ready track.

The electronic music group which includes Diplo once again taps Danish singer . Clearly, she’s their muse. Why wouldn’t she? They have great chemistry and it appears they have another winner on their hands.

For their latest collaboration, they take on Frank Ocean’s “Lost.” Their cover transforms the funky track into a reggae-pop radio-friendly tune. It’s perfect to listen to while sipping on some umbrella-decorated drink.

I could easily see this being another hit for them. Hopefully, the accompanying visual is as eye-catching as their Bollywood-inspired “Lean On Me” video. Give the track a listen below.

Beyonce surprised everyone tonight with the release of a brand new self-titled album! The visual album features 14 new tracks accompanied by 17 videos. A few of us from Homorazzi had the pleasure of seeing her perform here in Vancouver a couple weeks ago and after witnessing her epic performance, it makes me wonder how she had the time to secretly work on all of this?

I’ve only skimmed through the album (which is her 5th) and have definitely liked what I’ve heard so far. Surprisingly, “Grown Woman” didn’t make it on the album. That being said, the music video for the song is included as a bonus video. Of the new tracks, the only really upbeat song is “Blow” but it’s clear that she wasn’t going for a dance-type album with this anyone.

The album features collaborations with Jay Z, Frank Ocean, Drake,and even her own daughter, Blue Ivy. A couple songs like I like right off the bat are “Flawless” and “Pretty Hurts”. I can’t wait to dive in and actually go through each song and video. Speaking of videos, Bey hooked up with high-profile directors including Terry Richardson, Melina Matsouka, Jonas Akerlund, Jake Nava and Hype Williams.

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.

During last night’s GLAAD Media Awards in San Francisco, Adam Lambert was honored with the organization’s prestigious Davidson/Valentini Award. An award presented to an out LGBT media professional who has made a significant difference in promoting equality for the LGBT community. The American Idol runner-up became the first out LGBT artist to reach number one on the Billboard 200 with the release of his 2012 album Trespassing. Mel B was on hand to present the award to Glambert.

The 31-year-old also picked up another award during the event. He tied with Frank Ocean in the category of Outstanding Musical Artist category. Other honorees include Archie Comics‘ Kevin Keller and the San Francisco Giants. The baseball team is the first professional sports organization honored by GLAAD.

Out Magazine Reveals Their Power 50 List

In: Donovan, Totally GAY!

OUT magazine just revealed their annual Power 50 list. Who doesn’t love a good list, right? For seven years, the publication has ranked powerful and prestigious gay men and women who have tremendous influence. The list is compiled of Hollywood power players, publishing magnates, political figures, web entrepreneurs and everything in between.

Once again, Apple CEO Tim Cook ranked No. 1 on the list. Along with increasing the company’s bottom line, he gets the hottest seats in town. Cook sat next to Michelle Obama at the State of the Union address.

If you read Homorazzi regularly, you know I have the biggest hard-on for Andy Cohen and his army of Housewives. Guess what? My silver fox crush made the list. See where he placed along with a few of my favorites below. It’s kinda funny how Clive Davis made the list now that he’s newly out. Side note: Aren’t the photo illustrations great. They were all created by Mario Wagner.

While Fifth Harmony are hard at work in the studio (as shown above) on their “getting ready to go out” album, they recently set aside some time to do a cover of Frank Ocean‘s “Thinkin Bout You” song and have uploaded it onto YouTube. This is their first upload on their YouTube account, and I’m certain they’re will be more soon.

In the following video, the girls (Ally Brooke, 19, Camila Cabello, 15, Normani Hamilton, 16, Dinah Hansen, 15, and Lauren Jauregui, 16 — stand and sing beautifully together in a piano version of the song. Prior to posting the video, the group teased the video with the following tweet: ““Hey #Harmonizers we have a little surprise for you… tweet #5HSurprise if you want to know!”

Watch the amazing cover of “Thinkin Bout You’ by Fifth Harmony below. I can’t wait to hear what their album ends up sounding like!

Was Frank Ocean Arrested For Oral Sex?

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Donovan

Hope 2013 is treating you better than it is Frank Ocean? The R&B crooner was arrested while on vacation in California’s Eastern Sierra Nevada near Mammoth Lake on New Year’s Eve roughly at 4:30 pm. Despite some salacious rumors ( that he was apprehended due to engaging in some lewd acts, the truth is far less scandalous.

Contrary to rumors that he was swerving on the highway due to being “serviced,” the 25-year-old singer was stopped for speeding. He was driving more than 90 mph in a 65 mph zone in his black BMW. In his defense, whenever I drive Brian’s BMW instead of my Jeep Rubicon, it’s sometimes hard to tell how fast you’re going. It’s so smooth.

In addition to speeding, Ocean whose legal name is Christopher Edwin Breaux allegedly had a small bag of marijuana on him. Smoking a doobie on NYE. Nothing wrong with that, right? Someone has a little more street cred now 😉 If that wasn’t enough, Frank was also cited for driving with a suspended driver’s license and having tinted windows. When it rains, it pours. LOL. Reportedly, the following pic was taken by Ocean while riding in the backseat of the cop car.
