Weekend Meme: Eminem Dissed Lady Gaga, Disney Turns Red for Gay Days, and Jesse Tyler Calls Eric Stonestreet “Gay For Pay”

I really can’t find any flaws with Daniel Radcliffe. He’s cute, he’s talented, he’s polite, he’s
insanely rich. And he helps out The
Trevor Project
. So Daniel Radcliffethe Trevor Project is going to award him their Hero Award next month. I guess he can put
it beside the one he got for defeating Voldemort.

On Friday came the not-so surprising announcement that the Chicago Cubs would become the second MLB team to make an It Gets Better video. It wasn’t so
surprising because Laura Ricketts, a
lesbian, owns the team with her family and sits on the board. But what was so
surprising was that 24 hours later, in response to a petition by a 12-year-old,
the Boston Red Sox would announce their intent to make a video themselves.

Meanwhile, coming
out in the locker room
remains a difficult trick to master, even at an
elite school like Stanford.

Being John Malkovich was so important to someone, they stole his passport. And a lot of other items from his
hotel room in Prague.

The American Family Association
took their petitions to Home Depot about ending support for GLBT causes, and
Home Depot basically told them to get lost. Which makes me sad that I’ve
been spending all my money at Lowes.

 Colton HaynesThe things that have been added to the Oxford English Dictionary would
make even an American English teacher cry.

We had mentioned on Friday that doorQ.com had received a
nasty cease and desist letter from Teen Wolf star Colton Haynes’ attorney about images from an XY Magazine spread he’d
done in the past. While we linked to excerpts of the letter, you really need to read the whole thing to see how far over
the line this was. As for the photospread, according to the former publisher of
Haynes’ mother signed the modeling release and approved the

I suppose that since I am only familiar with the Saturday
morning cartoon, I could be entirely ignorant about the Smurfs being racist. I was certainly ignorant that original Smurfs
changed color based on mood. But as for the upcoming movie, in Neil Patrick Harris we trust.

Blabbeando has the fully translated, completely disgusting interview NY state Sen. Ruben Diaz gave to Juan Manual Kelsey and Camille GrammerBenitez, who really
deserves a medal attempting to deal with this man.

I’d chalk this up to tabloid rumor if TMZ didn’t have the court documents, but Kelsey Grammer’s proposed custody
arrangement with his wife is to separate the kids. He only wants the boy. That’s
a new low.

The airman who was discharged under Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell in
April requested discharge under the policy, even after he was
advised that it wasn’t necessary.

Two out of the five Hottest Actors of the Summer have significant gay ties. Sebastian Stan was the gay
prince in NBC’s Kings, and Nicholas
was willing to help a gay buddy out in Skins, as well as play up to his
professor in A Single Man.

There’s a Tea Party Congresswoman who’s more anti-gay and disgusting than Michele Bachman? Now I’m really Lady Gagascared.
Thanks a lot Missouri.

Weird Al has a second Lady Gaga
parody coming out, and it’s a pun worth of our own snicks: “Polka Face.” I’m really afraid for the video.

Anyone who thought Sir
Elton John
had reformed notorious homophobe Eminem can think again, because he just made a horrible dig at the godmother of Sir Elton’s baby.
In his song “A Kiss” Eminem says “Tell Lady
she can quit her job at the post office, she’s still a male lady.”

The big event this weekend is Gays Days at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL. Now this isn’t an officially sanctioned weekend by Disney, but it is in all but official name. Thousands of gays and lesbians crowd the park, dressed in red shirts, and thousands more party offsite at the official hotels, nightclubs, and circuit parties. The Florida Family Association is flying this banner all weekend at a cost of $7,000 to warn families away from the parks filled with us ’mos.

What they’re afraid of, I have no idea. My friend Rob goes every year (and makes me feel guilty I don’t join him – I’m coming next year, Rob, but no way I’m camping! I’ll get a room at Animal Kingdom Lodge.), and sent me this images. Is this something children need to be protected from?

Granted, some of these guys want to be Cinderella, not the Prince.

And I bet we’re more polite on a crowded Main Street than tired moms with strollers.

Also taking in Gay Days was Logo’s own Jonathan D. Lovitz, who discovered the joys of Corn Dog Nuggets.

Not the best way to keep that six-pack, Jon.

So I’m at work, and my Russell Tovey senses start tingling. I open Twitter and see this tweet from him: “My bed is really big and warm and I’m on my own in it wearing only a pair of Uniqlo boxers and a half smile… X.”

I may have blacked out for a second waiting for the picture to load.

We don’t have 3G where I live. The waiting was torture.

So what happens to my brain when I discover a talented artist is busy reimagining my beloved Firefly as a Muppet/Fraggle movie? I’m not sure, because I still can’t think. You can track his progress on Tumblr, and see individual character sketches. Nathan Fillion really should give this guys some love.

Are Fraggles Muppets? But are Muppets Fraggles?

I do love my nerds, especially when they’re hunky nerds. I’m also reminded that my anniversary of officially joining AfterElton.com is this month, and the first piece I wrote was about the Men of Eureka.

Niall Matter, Colin Ferguson, Joe Morton, and Neil Grayston.

I refuse to get a dog for my new house. At this point I’m thinking about fish, but starting small, with just a beta. Beans could have benefited from my caution.

I can’t afford my childlike lifestyle.

“Who says the Warblers are in the closet?”

Anderson Cooper’s biceps have a new website for his daytime show. It’s like the man doesn’t know that all of his clothes are one size too small. But of course he does.

It’s not like I’m complaining.

I’m going to do my best to tread carefully here. In San Francisco, there’s going to be a vote on whether or not to ban circumcision. It really does seem like there are all sorts of issues with this idea, from religious freedom to government overreach. Do I wish circumcision weren’t so automatic in the United States, that it was an utter delightful surprise to meet someone not cut? Absolutely. But is this campaign comic, with the blond super hero and an evil rabbi just about four bazillion miles over the line of bad taste? You, betcha!

Somebody thought this was a good idea?


I am so adverse to watching anything on Bravo (fear of accidentally seeing a Real Housewives of Peoria promo) that I never remember to watch Inside the Actor’s Studio. But for Modern Family, I might have to risk it. And it’s so gay, and not just in that gay-for-pay way Eric Stonestreet is.


Easily the most uncomfortable thing I’ve seen all week is this interview segment from Today, with super boy band NKOTBBSB talking about going on tour as older guys, and taking their families with them. All of them are nodding and agreeing, and Jonathan Knight won’t even look at the camera. He looks at the camera less than the two guys signing to each other. Buddy, you’re out now, even if you’re single. Jump in!


I was actually looking for video of Sarah Palin’s horrible understanding of Paul Revere when I stumbled on this montage of Republican presidential candidates talking about protecting traditional marriage. If they really cared, they’d try and protect it from Newt Gingrich.


Wanda Sykes is sure to ruffle some feathers with this statement. I’m just going to leave this lying here and back away slowly.


We’ve loved everything about the new movie Beginners, from the stars to the story. But I haven’t been paying terribly close attention since I didn’t catch a screening myself. So I didn’t realize just how personal it was for director Mike Mills to have Christopher Plummer’s character come out at such a late age.


From the “you’ve got to be kidding me files” comes the story of the BYU dancer who auditioned on So You Think You Can Dance in a tiny pair of dance shorts. As a result he received formal counseling from the school. Now some have said that they went on a gay witch hunt because of his outfit, but I haven’t seen any reputable media outlet say that. But as for violating their code of conduct? He has a pretty good defense which he deliversin the video. And a pretty good body.



Andrew Sullivan has always been quite the squeaky wheel, but oddly enough, the movement is now singing the same tune he was crooning ten years ago. But in a new piece for The Big Think, he talks about how he believes we’ll achieve equality by being out everywhere, and not by getting politicians to vote us equality.


This short film Gumball Wars has a very Pixar feel to it. I’d almost say that Pixar should buy it and expand on the idea as I found it to have a great deal of heart.


Opinionated. You'll love to hate me
