How Sex Workers Taught Me to Hustle

Twenty years ago, Friday and Species were blowing up at the box office. Groove Theory’s “Tell Me” and Notorious B.I.G’s “One More Chance (Remix)” were in heavy rotation on my Sony Walkman.

Facebook Removes Humans of New York's Picture of Gay Teen, Bans Posting

A photo posted to Humans of New York’s popular Facebook page today was deleted by administrators almost immediately after going up. The photo’s content, an interview with a gay teen who discusses his hopes and fears, wasn’t offensive and didn’t feature nudity, so why the quick deletion?

Mainstream Rap's Gay Future Is Upon Us

Last Saturday's edition of the New York Times featured a profile of the Atlanta rapper and singer ILoveMakonnen, who has become an unlikely budding star of sorts thanks to his off-kilter club jam "Tuesday."

Does Pat Robertson Want to Watch Dudes Do It in the Butt or What

For someone so against gay rights, Pat Robertson sure seems to be obsessed with butt stuff. The 85-year-old televangelist and last known living dinosaur recently released a new video in which he demands to be shown a child conceived through anal sex.

Kerry Washington Gave a Speech That Will Give You All The Feelings

Kerry Washington - one of last night's winners at the GLAAD Media Awards for her work as an ally - gave a compelling acceptance speech emphasizing the need for marginalized groups to come together across difference (an especially salient point in the wake of Patricia Arquette's unfortunate comments on women's rights). » 3/22/15 4:30pm 3/22/15 4:30pm

Zoe Saldana Won't Boycott Dolce & Gabbana, is Super Casual About Hate

Fashion designers Dolce and Gabbana made some awfully regressive comments about lifestyles, babies, and sexuality in a recent interview. "We oppose gay adoptions," was one such comment. Another, made by Dolce: "You are born to be a mother and a father. Or at least that's how it should be. I call children of chemistry,… » 3/22/15 3:15pm 3/22/15 3:15pm

'Straight James Franco' Interviews 'Gay James Franco'; Both Suck

In a universe already filled with twee, whimsical magazine stories that feel like they've escaped the prison of Zooey Deschanel's brain, there's one more. FourTwoNine magazine asked James Franco (eternal student, important scholar) to interview himself. Or rather, for the straight James Franco to interview the gay one. » 3/17/15 4:15pm 3/17/15 4:15pm

Empire's Gay Black Son to 'Blow Lid Off Homophobia'

I remember David's black boyfriend, Keith, in Six Feet Under. And of course gahmotherfuckingbless Omar Little, the baddest dude up in The Wire. Oh and Deadline says that HBO is developing a series called Bros about a group of brothers, one of whom is gay.
