North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory is delusional.

“On Thursday, he said he suspected that the entire matter had been orchestrated by Democrats and the Human Rights Campaign, a national gay rights group, to give Democrats an advantage in a tight governor’s race.

The backlash, he said, has allowed for no dialogue on “a very complex issue.” Dissenters to the left-wing position, he said, were being intimidated. Mr. McCrory used the word “Orwellian” twice.”


Why Clay Aiken didn’t fully embrace being gay until the day after his campaign ended.


Colton heads to Coachella. “My 1st Coachella…I don’t really know what ur supposed to do here. I also might just be in an Albertsons and not at Coachella yet but I’m not sure.”


He seems to be fitting in fine.

What the hell is in the water in that house?


Here’s the Puzzler! “Coming Clean”


And here’s The Weekly 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 and bisexual celebs who deserve more recognition.

This week our 163rd ShoutOUT™ is to … Sam Tsui.

Sam made his TV debut in October 2009 on ABC World News Tonight, in a profile about his terrific Michael Jackson tribute.

 

 
The next month Sam (and producing partner Kurt Schneider) appeared on The Bonnie Hunt Show to talk about the journey to Youtube stardom.
 


Most Briefs lists involve the “best” or “greatest” of something, so for a change let’s switch it up, as Evil Snicks brings you The 30 Worst Music Videos Of All Time.

You’ll see debacles from major musical artists, as well as a few Youtube “stars.” Sure, it’s really easy to pick on desperate wannabes. It’s fun, too. But it proves that terrible can run the gamut from multi-million dollar productions to, well, a certain video named after a day of the week. You know the one.

At #9 is “Born To Save” by These Three Totally Heterosexual Christians.

One of my favorite occasional trips to the lunatic side of Youtube is the influx of pop songs “re-imagined” for Christian audiences, i.e “Sexy And I Know It” rewritten as “Blessed And I Know It” or “Call Me Maybe” becoming “I Know You Saved Me.” Think of it as God Bopz (which if that hasn’t been taken already, I call).

Here we have three guys taking “Born This Way,” filling it with the holy spirit (and bizarre wardrobe choices), and delivering “Born To Save” unto us. These three Jesus boyz have taken Gaga’s gay anthem and somehow, miraculously, made it the gayest thing in the history of everything. Which I’m not sure was their intent.
