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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Must Watch: Cold Star

In one of the most bizarre short films I have ever seen, this music video/short movie is a "hybrid that connects the emotions of a short with beats and lyrics of music. The film is an appeal for acceptance of your own and others sexual identity," according to it's YouTube description.

This short film premiered at several GLBT film festivals, and immediately received standing ovations all around, and rightly so.  While the video is different, it is meant for inspiration.  Everything about it is amazing; The acting, the music, the photography, but most importantly the incredible message it conveys.  It's all about tolerance, being who we are and accepting it.
The religious right are already out in masses condemning the video, but like I always say, "See you in hell bitches!"

Pretty ballsy video if you ask me. I guess I see what it's trying to say: Make love to hate. Nice video but I prefer the more tear jerker one myself. Still good though.

I do have one question to ask: How does the "You Might Also Like" section really decide what videos to put down there? I mean come on, Air Hockey, Zombies, Dietary Supplements and the movie Contagion? Okay I'm gonna give it a try and guess here so let's see.

Air Hockey = a sport like swimming and high diving

Zombies = also a short film

Dietary Supplements = if you want to look like hot ripped boys what you really need is....

The movie Contagion = nobody brought condoms to the pool so now everyone's got it
