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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Documentaries To Watch: Second Class Citizens

A documentary which began as a fruition is on a promising track to become a reality.  

Filmmaker Ryan James Yezak is currently working on a documentary sure to win the hearts of millions around the world, but most importantly, let it be known that it is okay to be gay.

Hoping to garner $50,000 in order to make his film "Second Class Citizens", Yezak raised $47,000 dollars in less than 24 hours, and has so far been pledged $140,000. If you wish to donate and be a part of this great movement, please go here and make a pledge.

A countless number of people have shared the following video which will bring you to tears once you get to the end.  Ellen DeGeneres chimes in,  "Larry was not a second class citizen. I am not a second class citizen. It is okay if you're gay."

"I want to make a documentary that encompasses all areas in which we are discriminated against. The general population is not aware that discrimination against the gay community goes beyond marriage & bullying. There is far too much hate directed towards our community and I want to capture that hate on camera. In addition, I want to explore where this hate comes from, why it continues to exist, and what we must do to get rid of it. A better solution is needed because the solution we have right now isn't working fast enough.

I am not a second class citizen. You are not a second class citizen. Right now, the laws in place (and lack thereof) say that we are. Let's change that." - Ryan James Yezak

Disney Prince of the Week 002

Last Friday, Prince Eric from the Little Mermaid was featured as my inaugural Prince of the Week.  

In today's issue, and for the next 18 weeks I'll be posting a Disney Prince of the Week.  Can you guess which movie and name of the character who played this week's Prince?

Quoted - Ezra Miller on Exploring His Sexuality

I’ve had many, you know, ‘happy ending sleepovers’ in my early youth. My period of exploration – I think that’s essential. Anyone who hasn’t had a gay moment is probably trying to avoid some confrontation with a reality in their life.

President Obama Sings Al Green's "Let's Stay Together"

It's a short clip, but it sure makes me smile.  I wholeheartedly believe this man has done more for this country than any other President ever has over the past 20 - 30 years.  And I also couldn't have stated it any better than the guy who posted this video on YouTube:
"Sorry about the blocked comments everyone, but I honestly don't have the time to deal with all the racist bile from YouTube's Ron Paul mob and the Tea/Firebagger bigots

This is the original 'President Obama sings Al Green' video on YouTube, but please, copy at your leisure - my pleasure!"

OMG Hilarious! - Push, Push

Hey Baby Girl

Okay, I don't know about you, but this kid needs help.  And serious help.  I'm scared for the girl he's talking to, Briona.  Hell, I got scared just watching him profess his love for her. LOL.

Nevermind that the guy looks like a troll, but dear Briona, I suggest you get a restraining order as soon as humanly possible.  Move the hell out of town, before you wind up in trash bags across hwy 59.  Jesus Christ, God Bless You!

Brokeback Twilight

So what if I'm a little late with this. It's still funny as hell.  Not sure how many of you ever saw Brokeback Mountain, starring Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal, but for those who haven't, it was about two cowboys who secretly loved each other and remained in the closet throughout the whole movie.  I know.  Ironically enough, the straights liked it more than the gays. LOL.

But what if a wolf named Jacob and a vampire named Edward were carrying on a secret relationship?  What would Bella do?  LMAO!  Check out the video, it should make you chuckle.

Celebrity Pallbearers

I thought this infographic was pretty darn cool.  For those who have no idea what a pallbearer is, the definition is underneath the title.  

It took me a few seconds, but I was able to find out which celebrities carried Natalie Wood's casket.  Some celebrities only had one fellow celebrity carry their casket, but in the case of Natalie, she had Fred Astaire, Laurence Olivier, David Niven, Frank Sinatra and Gregory Peck, all of which have died since then.  It's pretty fascinating - click on the pic to see the full chart, or go to mysendoff.com.
