  • Is Zachary Quinto getting ready to propose to Jonathan Groff? Who wouldn’t? (the source of the rumor is Perez Hilton, so take it with a grain of salt).
  • Speaking of, we previously showed you a clip from Miscast 2013 featuring Jeremy Jordan and Jonathan Groff, and below you can see Jeremy perform another duet with Cheyenne Jackson. This one is “Who Will Love Me As I Am?” from Sideshow,

  • Here is the first teaser for the ABC Family series The Fosters, which will debut this summer. Produced by Jennifer Lopez, it’s about a lesbian couple and the biological and adopted kids they’re raising.

  • Introducing our new feature – The Daily SpOUTlight ShoutOUT™. Each week we’re going to focus on one out athlete/performer and feature a daily pic and career timeline. We’ll be showcasing the big names, but also the lesser-known gay celebs who deserve more recognition. This week we give a ShoutOUT to … Guillermo Diaz. After Party Girl, Guillermo made a splash as drag queen La Miranda in Stonewall and as Scarface in Half Baked. Below you can see him on the red carpet in 2002. Tomorrow – Guillermo grabs his first regular series role. BTW, I know some of you are bitterly disappointed that Matt Bomer is no longer part of the Briefs, so starting next week, we’ll have … Monday Morning Matt! (h/t to revtrask )

  • Continuing the Top 50 Movie Songs Of The 80’s! At #28 is … “This Is Not America” by David Bowie & Pat Metheny Group, from The Falcon and the Snowman.

  • Definitely one of David’s most underrated songs, it also qualifies as a certified Lost Hit Of the 80’s, and is the only chart hit for the legendary Pat Metheny Group. “This Is Not America” debuted on February 2nd, 1985, and peaked at #32 on March 30th. Tomorrow’s clue – “I Never Wanted To Be Your Weekend Lover”
