James Duke Mason writes an open letter: Why the Met should boycott the anti-LGBT owned Beverly Hills Hotel.

“To hold an event at the boycotted Beverly Hills Hotel would be in complete contradiction of everything the Met has always stood for, and that would be a tragic mistake, especially since it is so unnecessary. I hope you will stand with Ellen DeGeneres, Elton John, Jay Leno, Stephen Fry, Richard Branson, Valentino Garavani, and the many other prominent individuals who have come out in support of boycotting all Dorchester Collection establishments until these laws are fully repealed or until the Sultan agrees to sell the hotels.”


Chris Hemsworth brings the guns.

How the Human Rights Campaign is helping the GOP to retain the Senate.

“The simple truth is that in 2016 in Illinois we don’t need Mark Kirk — he needs us. Kirk is in a deep blue state and he absolutely must support full LGBT equality in order to win. His coming out for the Equality Act is not brave; it’s about his own survival. And the first vote he’ll take upon winning back his seat will be a cowardly one to make the anti-gay McConnell (with an HRC score of 0) the Senate Majority Leader again.”

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 158th ShoutOUT™ is to … Evan Adams

WHD_2015_Cheryl_REV_DR_EVAN_ADAMS

Closing out our week with Dr. Adams, in 2012 he was made Deputy Provincial Health Officer for British Columbia, and in 2014, he became the Chief Medical Officer of the First Nations Health Authority. And STILL maintained an acting career, most recently appearing in the Canadian series Arctic Air with his Smoke Signals co-star Adam Beach.

Here he is giving a TED Talk on some medical stuff.
 


Over the next few weeks we’ll have a lot of fun looking at 20 Songs Everyone Knows That Didn’t Hit The Top 40! These are all songs that have become a part of pop culture history, but failed on the chart when they were originally released. Songs that, through inclusion in films, TV, or other medium have managed to withstand the test of time.

Note – We’ll also include a couple of songs that were never actually released a singles, but have also become classics.

At #1 is “Landslide” by Fleetwood Mac.

When Stevie Nicks and whatsisface joined Fleetwood Mac, her first two contributions to the group were “Rhiannon” and “Landslide.” “Rhiannon” would become a hit, but “Landslide” was never released as a single. But time would eventually bring “Landslide” the iconic status it deserved.

It was released as a single as part of the live reunion album The Dance, reaching #51 in 1998, and since that performance 20 years ago (still one of the most affecting moments I’ve ever seen on a concert stage, and can still bring a tear to my eye), “Landslide” has been covered by too many artists to count, including Tori Amos, Miley Cyrus, Smashing Pumpkins, Paramore, Lady Antebellum, Glee, and of course, The Dixie Chicks, whose version finally gave it top ten status, peaking at #7 in 2002.
