Michael Chiklis joins AHS: Freak Show, an Awkward serenade, George Takei to headline Seattle Pride

Sir Elton John and David FurnishSir Elton John and David Furnish will take advantage of marriage equality in the UK in May. According to Furnish, it’s partly to be role models. “We don’t feel the need to take an extra step legally. But since we’re committed for life, we feel it’s really important to take that step, and take advantage of that amazing change in legislation. We all live by example.” But he also admits that after they did their civil partnership it felt better than expected. “After we did it, we felt this amazing sense of commitment and happiness we didn’t anticipate happening. It’s a really nice thing. Initially, the political side of you is like, ‘No, no, we must have equality.’ When you finally get it, it’s like, ‘Oh my god, this feels really nice.’ It’s a lifting thing.”

Noah is set to win the box office with around $45 million, trumping Divergent, which will take second with $25 million. There will actually be two religiously themed movies in the top ten, with God’s Not Dead taking sixth place.

Should we be concerned that the new owners of Newsweek believe that being gay can be cured? Or maybe they should just rehire Ramin Setoodeh.

David CameronWhen President Obama met with Pope Francis, LGBT issues were not discussed, missing a golden opportunity to figure out what the pontiff really thinks.

We want to congratulate all out readers in England and Wales on the event of marriage equality. Prime Minister Cameron believes it’s a great step to true equality. “The introduction of same-sex civil marriage says something about the sort of country we are. It says we are a country that will continue to honour its proud traditions of respect, tolerance and equal worth. It also sends a powerful message to young people growing up who are uncertain about their sexuality. It clearly says ‘you are equal’ whether straight or gay. That is so important in trying to create an environment where people are no longer bullied because of their sexuality – and where they can realise their potential, whether as a great mathematician like Alan Turing, a star of stage and screen like Sir Ian McKellen or a wonderful journalist and presenter like Clare Balding. We are a nation that is growing stronger economically because of our long term economic plan. But I hope we can also be a country that is growing stronger socially because we value love and commitment equally. Let us raise a toast to that – and all Michael Chiklisthose getting married this weekend.”

Michael Chiklis is joining American Horror Story; Freak Show in an unnamed role. I’m guessing the Strong Man?

If you meet up with Betty White, she will probably have read about you on Twitter, like how she knew to offer this writer a cupcake. But why is she still working at the age of 92? “I have to stay in show business to pay for my animal business. They’re my passion.”

The sequel to Magic Mike will be called Magic Mike XXL. I will be expecting big things with a promise like that. The film will be directed by Greg Jacobs, who is Steven Soderbergh’s AD. Joe Manganiello says they plan to start shooting in the fall.

Matt BomerLance Bass spent last week filling in on KTLA, and he was a major draw, boosting ratings by 20% over their regular broadcasts.

We have a mostly spoiler free review of Jack Plotnik’s Space Station 76 that stars Matt Bomer, and it’s going to be a hard film to classify. It’s not Spaceballs, and it’s not Star Wars.

Which gay sex position are you? I got the Standing 69, which honestly seems to require way more balance than I’ve got.

The federal government will recognize the 300 or so marriages that took place in Michigan before the stay, much as they are recognizing the Utah marriages.George Takei

But in disturbing news, a judge on the Ninth Circuit has called for an en banc review of the heightened scrutiny decision in SmithKline Beecham Corp. v. Abbott Laboratories. The heightened scrutiny ruling was the reason the Nevada AG dropped her appeal of the marriage equality decision. This doesn’t mean it will be reversed, but it’s disturbing to see such an important victory threatened by the courts after Abbott decided not to appeal.

 George Takei is set to be the Grand Marshall of the Seattle Pride parade June 29th.

1VU7GbVThis is so perfect

These rare Sumatran tiger cubs made their first trip out of the den and into their enclosure at the London Zoo. It wasn’t planned, but mom went out, and two of the three rare little ones followed her out, so it became a family outing. These are some of the rarest tigers in the world, and you just want to cuddle them

Carl’s Jr./Hardees has this incredibly sexist commercial for a burger. I’m kind of stunned that Marvel would sign off on this. The general idea is that women aren’t man enough for their burger so Mystique morphs into (an admittedly hot) guy to eat it. Jezebel calls it part of their “Slutburger” campaign, which I take issue with, as there’s no shame in being a slut, but I think we can all agree it takes their sexist commercials to a whole new level.

This is not a SyFy original movie, and will supposedly actually hit theaters.

Awkward is coming back, and Jake and Matty are singing you a recap for the previous season, but I think we all know they’d rather be singing a love song to each other.



Opinionated. You'll love to hate me
