It’s Pride Month, and the Royal Family typically stays away from anything political. Which might explain why the official Royal Family Twitter account never tweeted a gallery of Elizabeth II wearing a rainbow of skirt suits with the caption, “The original Yass Queen.” But Prince William made a visit to the LGBTQ youth charity AKT in London today, and he broke with the royal tradition of not saying much by talking about how he’d feel if one of his children came out. William would be totally cool with it.
Multi-millionaire sappy romance novelist, Nicholas Sparks, got into some more trouble the other day because of some emails that got released by The Daily Beast. The emails showed that Nicholas didn’t want the queers tainting his Christian school with their gay shit. The school is called the Epiphany School of Global Studies. Honestly, that is a “yikes” name to me. They either train witches or highly-pretentious rich folk–and I know all the witch schools in North America, so it ain’t that. Nicholas has now come out (wink-wink) with an apology to us gays during our Holy Month: Pride. And it is a tepid one–unlike his distaste for homosexuality.
Ok, that headline is a bit misleading and I feel bad for it, because sadly Taylor Swift is not coming out full force for Pride by declaring her love for puss (as far as we know she’s still strictly dickly and only dabbles in her love for pussy via her cats Olivia Benson, Meredith Grey and newest addition, kitten Benjamin Button. Yes, I hate myself for knowing the names of Taylor Swift’s cats). So sorry, Taylor and Karlie “shippers.”
But after months of speaking out for gay rights, Taylor is emerging as a full fledged LGBTQIA+ ally by kicking off Pride Month with a “stick it where the sun don’t shine” letter to Tennessee Senator Lamar Alexander in support of the Equality Act and a rainbow infused performance at yesterday’s Wango Tango concert. Taylor, you little ROYGBIV baby giraffe.
The good folks of San Francisco turned out in droves this weekend to take part in Pride celebrations, but they got more than the rainbows and faint whiff of poppers than what they bargained for. Instead, the Real Felon Of New York City, Luann de Lesseps, tried to take over the day and turn it into a giant cabaret on wheels. For some reason, the gays of San Francisco didn’t appreciate her art! Continue reading
With millions of people descending upon New York City last weekend for the country’s largest Pride Month celebration, it was clear there was a helluva lot of money to be made from thirsty queens. While most of us might snicker into thinking ‘dat cash would go to vodka sodas and Grindr Premium accounts, Suri Cruise figured she could make enough money to just about buy out the entire Build-a-Bear corporation by hawking lemonade in front of her house in Manhattan. She wasn’t wrong. Continue reading
At the Human Rights Campaign 2017 gala on Saturday night, Katy Perry was given the National Equality Award for being a vocal friend of the LGTBQ community. Katy did more than just thank the HRC when she accepted her award. She also got real with the audience and talked about her experience as a not-totally-straight Christian teen.
