Texas teen Mitch Anderson didn’t just come out in his graduation speech—he gave major shout outs to Beyoncé, Madonna, Harry Potter, Nicki Minaj and Zachary Quinto’s eyebrows:
The journey into the soul is not for the faint of heart. Fear will naturally creep in, but those who use the fear to force themselves onward will succeed… As Madonna has said, “If your joy is derived from what society thinks of you, you’re always going to be disappointed.”
…I would be remiss, however, if I failed to incorporate a Harry Potter reference to the theme of my speech, so I will. Be a Luna Lovegood, not a Pansy Parkinson. Be a little bit strange and off-kilter, and not so desperate to be popular.
I have a few final, closing thoughts, before I turn over the podium. First, I find Zachary Quinto’s eyebrows very attractive. Second, I would like to be friends with Lady Gaga and Beyoncé Knowles-Carter. And third, I would like everyone to remember that “Starships were meant to fly, Hands up and touch the sky, Can’t stop ‘cause we’re so high, let’s do this one more time.”
Eric McCormack thinks Will & Grace’s main gay would have tied the knot by now.
An 8-year-old boy with a big crush on Glee’s Blaine—whom he calls “my boyfriend”—got to meet Darren Criss before a concert in Chicago, after some finagling from his mom. (She’s been blogging about her son’s journey for HuffPo.) Criss gave the gayling a big hug. This is not creepy at all, no sir.
Cops in Peru raided an speakeasy in Peru because it was hosting a gay wedding. But don’t rush to order something off the wedding registry, folks: When the groom saw the police come through the door, he bolted and left his partner, decked out in a wedding dress, to argue with the authorities.
The Internets is hating on Rachel Zoe because she’s letting her son’s hair grow long. Her Instagram is filled with photos of little Skyler, but followers are throwing shade on his Sampson-like locks. “Cut his hair. He looks like a girl,” “STOP MAKING YOUR BOY LOOK LIKE A GIRL,” and “Youre [sic] a terrible mom. Do you know how hard youre f*cking him over?” Oh, we’re sure his inevitable eating disorder and Oedipal complex will do the real work there.
An Orlando attorney is launching a new alternative to the Boy Scouts—one that will discriminate against gay kids. John Stemberger has created OnMyHonor.Net and is trying to come up with a name for the newly formed group. Some suggestions include Sons of Bravery, Faith Based Boys, Reformed Scouts of America and Ready Rangers. How about “We Don’t Want to Be Here But Our Douchebag Dads are Forcing Us”? Too long, probably.
These geektastic bras really make us like boobies.
Queer Perks of Being a Wallflower star Ezra Miller is appearing in a new menswear campaign for Prada alongside Django Unchained’s Christopher Waltz and Skyfall’s Ben Whishaw. “Each actor plays a distinct role, creating a trio of characters who bring their individual points of view and style to the collection,” explains a statement from the label. “Christoph Waltz’s character evokes a studied sense of elegance, Ben Whishaw presents an alternative carefree charm and Ezra Miller brings a youthful air of mystery.” Hmm, I’d think it was Whishaw—he of the see-sawing sexual orientation—who’s the real mystery.
