Out Rep. Brian Sims Shines A Light On Some State Politics Getting It Right For A Change

by Dan Tracer April 13, 2016


Our national political discourse has taken a few disgraceful steps back (and that’s saying something) with all this antigay legislature in places like North Carolina and Mississippi, which makes us all the more happy to share this post from out Pennsylvania representative Brian Sims.

Sims was one of many to join governor Tom Wolf for the signing of two Executive Orders granting bolstered protections for LGBTQ state employees and employees of state contractors.

“This is the type of leadership and advocacy that other Governors could learn a lot from and that our entire legislature needs to recognize and finally pass the Pennsylvania Fairness Act!”

And with two signatures, Wolf officially looks like the adult in the room compared to some of his Republican colleagues to the south.

James Franco Suspects Keegan Allen Stuffed His Speedo For “King Cobra”

by Derek de Koff October 24, 2016

James Franco stopped by The Today Show on Friday, apparently just to accuse co-star Keegan Allen of packing several tube socks into his Speedo for some of his more revealing King Cobra scenes. Obviously, since Franco and Allen co-star as two unhinged gay adult film producers, both roles call for very little in the way of clothing. Related: Well. So Here’s [...]

Here’s Why Gus Kenworthy Is Glad He Came Out Last Year

by Derek de Koff October 24, 2016

I am gay. Those three words are how I began the caption on this same photo one-year-ago, today. I remember waking up that day, with the most overwhelming sense of emotions. I was excited for a future where I no longer had to mask myself with heteronormative posturing. But then, of course, I felt apprehensive [...]
