“If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?” - RuPaul - - - - - - - - - - - “if by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people -- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties -- someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.” - John F.

And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

Daniel Joseph Baker Leaves You Speechless

You may recall, back on June10th I wrote a post on the very gay, and adorable Daniel Joseph Baker, who impressed the judges with his performance of "Bad Romance" by Lady Gaga.  In last night's "Vegas Round" there was no exception.

Daniel, once again wowed the judges with his rendition of Lady Gaga's hit song, "Speechless."

Prior to his performance, Daniel made it a point to let people know that he was doing this for his parents, because without them he felt he could never have made it with all the bullying in his life.  

The son of a white mother and black father, his emotions brought out the best in him.  In tears, he stated he wanted to give his parents the best performance he could, because he wanted to call and let them know he made it through to Hollywood.

The song was so powerful, and personal, that the other contestants were in awe with his performance. After the judge's critiques, he earned a spot in the Top 48.   

He wanted to let his parents know that everything they've done for him in his life, has paid off.  Daniel, I think it already has....  Congratulations, you deserve it!  GAY POWER!!!!
