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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Look out Britney Spears, Johnny Weir is Here!

Yes, you heard right.  Better yet, you read right.

Johnny is number one in Japan with his hit "Dirty Love."  It's true! He hit the top spot on the Japanese Amazon sales chart  shortly after its worldwide release last week.  The queen of olympic skating has been keeping busy.   He is currently filming his reality show Be Good Johnny Weir, and he is on a book-signing tour for his memoir, Welcome To My World.  So Britney, you best be on the lookout, you may be a princess, but Johnny's The Queen!

Listen to Dirty Love here:

Happy 65th Birthday Dolly!

Happy Birthday Dolly and may you have many healthy years ahead of you! 

Thank you for supporting us gays through the decades and we thank you for your love and music.

I will always love you!

Has Hell Frozen Over Yet?

Alabama GOP Governor Robert Bentley: If We Don't Have the Same Daddy, We're Not Brothers and Sisters

The new Republican Governor of Alabama, Robert Bentley, proclaimed yesterday that if you don't convert and become a Christian, then you're not part of his family.

Bentley made the remarks during a speech at Dexter Street King Memorial Baptist Church, the Montgomery church once led by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., saying that non-Christians were “not my brother” and he hoped they would convert to Christianity.

During the speech at the church in recognition of the King holiday Monday, Bentley told a packed audience that he is color blind to race, and then talked about his religious beliefs.

“But if you have been adopted in God’s family like I have, and like you have, if you’re a Christian and if you’re saved, and the Holy Spirit lives within you just like the Holy Spirit lives within me, then you know what that makes? It makes you and me brothers. And it makes you and me brother and sister,” he said.

“Now I will have to say that, if we don’t have the same daddy, we’re not brothers and sisters. So anybody here today who has not accepted Jesus Christ as their savior, I’m telling you, you’re not my brother and you’re not my sister, and I want to be your brother.”

I'm a Christian, so I guess I'm part of his family.  I wonder if it matters if I'm gay, or is there an exception to the rule?

The New York City No One Sees

I saw this video about 3 or 4 weeks ago and I was fascinated with the quality and imagination the artist projects in his work. Steve Duncan (undercity.org), who describes himself as a historian & photographer goes underneath the city of New York to show people a piece of America no one ever has the chance or will ever get the chance to see.  Due to laws and regulations no one is allowed underneath particular parts of the city.  Together with videographer Andrew Wonder, Steve creates a work of art. I highly recommend watching this video.
