  • Utah Plaintiffs To SCOTUS: Hear Our Case

    Utah Plaintiffs To SCOTUS: Hear Our Case The good guys in Kitchen v Herbert today petitioned SCOTUS to hear their case. Hit the link and dig into their argument. (Via Equality Case Files)RELATED: Plaintiffs in the Oklahoma and Virginia cases have filed similar petitions, but SCOTUSblog today pointed out an angle from the Oklahoma case:In the most specific advice so far on how the Supreme Court could handle the same-sex marriage cases, lawyers for an Oklahoma lesbian couple urged the Justices on Wednesday to consider two options:a slimmed-down, one-issue, one-case review or a sweeping, all-issues, multiple-cases approach. That filing also suggested that the Court might want to divide argument between two different constitutional tests for judging the validity of states’ bans on same-sex marriage.The document was the[…]

  • 20 year old Georgia man finds physical abuse in coming out to family, but kindness from strangers

    20 year old Georgia man finds physical abuse in coming out to family, but kindness from strangers Earlier today, I reported on a 20 year-old man in Georgia who found verbal and physical abuse in coming out to his family.The good news appears to be that good-hearted strangers are opening their wallets to help young Daniel avoid being homeless with a GoFundMe campaign that, at this writing, has raised over $27K.The story began with the posting of a video made by Daniel as he tried to address coming out to his family.On Facebook, Daniel Ashley Pierce posted this yesterday:“What a day…. i thought that waking up at 9:48 and being 15 mins late to work was going to be the biggest problem today. but i didn’t know that my biggest problem was going to be getting disowned[…]

  • A Numbers Game: Making An NFL Roster

    Making an NFL team's 53-man roster starts in training camp. According to NFL rules, each team can only have 90 players when training camp starts. The 90-man roster consists of players from the previous year, drafted and undrafted rookies and free agents from other teams. The process that all teams undergo to get from 90 to 53 can be difficult to understand. For players who are vying to make a team, it can be more stressful and challenging than playing the game itself.So in an effort to educate many new and old fans of the NFL on what Michael Sam and other players are experiencing, I traveled to St. Louis and sat down with head coach Jeff Fisher, general manager[…]

  • Little Caesars Chain Sued For Denying Insurance Benefits To Gay Couples

    Little Caesars Chain Sued For Denying Insurance Benefits To Gay Couples Via Reuters: A former trainee manager at Little Caesars pizza in California sued the company for discrimination on Wednesday, accusing the Detroit-based chain of denying employees health insurance benefits for their legally wed same-sex spouses. The lawsuit was brought in state Superior Court in Orange County, regional headquarters for the nation's third-largest pizza chain, by Frank Bernard, 47, who said he quit his job after Little Caesars refused to extend coverage to his husband of six years. "I didn't want anything special, I just wanted the same benefits package as heterosexual couples," Bernard said at a news conference in Los Angeles. It cites a letter Little Caesars presented Bernard explaining a benefits policy that defined "spouse" as "the one person[…]

  • So You Think You Can Dance - Final 4 "Wind Beneath My Wings"

    So You Think You Can Dance - Final 4 "Wind Beneath My Wings" Well, I really like this.This dance, choreographed by Travis Wall, opened last night's show and is apparently one of the few times, SYTYCD has utilized same-sex partners actually dancing with each other in a some-what romantic scenario.Clearly the theme of the dance references LGBT equality and same-sex marriage.On top of the excellent execution by the final four dancers (Valerie Rockey, Ricky Ubeda, Jessica Richens, and Zack Everhart Jr.), the choreography is creative, current and thoughtful.By the way, the recording of "Wind Beneath My Wings" was by Canadian twins RyanDan.You can find the recording here on iTunes.

  • Beverly Hills Hotel Boycott Drawn Into Pro-Israel, Anti-Hamas Debate

    Beverly Hills Hotel Boycott Drawn Into Pro-Israel, Anti-Hamas Debate Shut up. Just shut up.And think. That is the message being tossed about by a Hollywood heavyweight who recently penned an op-ed for the entertainment industry trade magazine The Hollywood Reporter to celebrities, artists and "globally respected icons" with anti-Israel views on the conflict in the Middle East. Ryan Kavanaugh, CEO of Relativity Media and the grandson of Holocaust survivors, indulgently plumbed the less-than-controversial position that creatives of the Dream Factory should consider their craft before speaking their minds. Good advice, no doubt. In a meticulously penned 1,300 or so words, Mr. Kavanaugh navigates the usually unspoken dialogue of the industry to warn anyone who may take a view that's anything short of outright condemnation of Hamas that it is[…]

  • Everyday Sexism In Just 9 Illustrations

    Everyday Sexism In Just 9 Illustrations From "leaning in" to "having it all," it can sometimes be hard to keep track of where we have and haven't made progress when it comes to gender roles. A new project however, simplifies everyday gender stereotypes, making it impossible to ignore their negative implications.A new book from Taschen titled Man Meets Woman, features simple green and pink pictograms by Beijing-born, Berlin-based designer Yang Liu that examine modern gender roles. The 38-year-old uses minimalist imagery to illustrate a complex culture of gender stereotyping. The end result is an effective commentary on everyday sexism found in the workplace, during parenthood and even in the bedroom. "Women today are trying very hard to fight against [these] stereotypes, which is a very important[…]

  • Bob Mould On Jimmy Kimmel Live

    Stereogum raves: The former Hüsker Dü/Sugar frontman Bob Mould is a punk rock legend, and it turns out that he’s also really, really great at performing on late-night TV talk shows. Remember when he ripped through “I Don’t Know You Anymore” on Conan? Jesus. Ridiculous. Last night, Mould was on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and he once again rocked hard enough that I’m worried he’s going to break something one of these days. Mould usually plays with Superchunk drummer Jon Wurster, but last night, he had a ringer behind him, as Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins filled in.

  • WATCH: Family Has Horrifying, Violent Reaction To Son's Coming Out As Gay (GRAPHIC CONTENT)

    Sometimes coming-out stories are heartwarming tales of acceptance and love. Other times they are tragic accounts of abandonment and abuse. Daniel Ashley Pierce, a 20-year-old from Georgia, came out as gay last October. At the time, his father was unresponsive and his stepmother seemed supportive. However, things took a turn for the worse Wednesday when Pierce found himself a part of what he describes as a "delayed intervention" involving his father, stepmother and grandparents. He apparently captured footage of the interaction on camera. "I wanted to make sure there was evidence in case something happened," Pierce told The Huffington Post in an email Thursday. WARNING: Video at bottom of post may be disturbing.Pierce's video began going viral after it was[…]

  • Judge Lets Michael Egan Drop Lawsuit Against Bryan Singer

    HONOLULU (AP) - A former child model can dismiss his lawsuit that accused "X-Men" director Bryan Singer of sex abuse in Hawaii, but he has the option to re-file it later, a federal judge ruled Wednesday.Michael Egan III said in a previous court filing that he wanted to dismiss the lawsuit, not because it lacks merit but because he can't find a new lawyer to represent him. Singer sought to have the case dismissed with prejudice, meaning it couldn't be re-filed, with attorney costs and fees imposed against Egan.U.S. District Judge Susan Oki Mollway denied Singer's request, saying he didn't prove that Egan's voluntary dismissal would damage the director's reputation, and that the money spent defending himself doesn't constitute legal[…]

  • Reflections on Marriage (Part 2): Why Do the Unmarried Support Marriage?

    What tipped the scales for marriage equality? While it is still difficult to answer that question fully, two groups of people are crucial to the continuing work to secure marriage equality. Lesbians and gay men have been at the forefront of imagining marriage equality for ourselves and our relationships. In particular, visionaries like Evan Wolfson and Mary Bonauto put their minds and their hearts into articulating the legal case for marriage equality along with the intellectual and emotional cases for same-sex marriage. So queer people support marriage equality.Equally as important are young people. Young people overwhelmingly support the rights of gay men and lesbians to get married, and they have been influential in persuading their parents to support marriage equality.[…]

  • An Open Letter to the Prime Minister of Greece

    The Hon. Antonis Samaras, Prime Minister of the Hellenic RepublicHonourable Prime Minister:As you may be aware, earlier today a member of your national parliament and recent founder of the Greek Christian-Democratic Party‎ used an extremely derogatory term (the Greek equivalent of the word "faggot") in a Twitter reference to the Prime Minister of Luxembourg. Apparently your fellow parliamentarian's tweet was nothing more than an expression of his profound disapproval of the ‎Luxemburgian Prime Minister's engagement to his same-sex partner.As a proud expatriate Greek, living in a society where bigotry is broadly condemned, I was disappointed but perhaps not entirely shocked by your colleague's remark.

    Brian Brown Has The Oregon Sadz "We are of course disappointed with the Ninth Circuit's decision today. The Ninth Circuit did not reach the appeal of the denial of motion to intervene, holding instead that even if NOM had been allowed to intervene on behalf of its members (including Oregon voters, wedding services providers, and a county clerk), it had no standing to appeal the judgment below even though the elected officials of the state refused to provide any defense of the marriage amendment adopted by a strong majority of Oregonians."We believe that the decision conflicts with a prior Ninth Circuit opinion specifically recognizing that a County Clerk with the duty to issue marriage licenses likely would have standing to intervene and appeal an adverse judgment.[…]
