It's Not Hayes(y) to Me

Okay, I find this odd, maybe even offensive.  Sean Hayes, who played “Jack McFarland” on Will & Grace is gay as…well, gayer than a three dollar bill, right?  When I saw this headline I thought to myself, wow, now you’re going to tell me that Richard Simmons is gay.  You want to know why this pisses me off, well; I’m going to tell you either way.  I equate closeted people with those Republican hypocrites that take wide stances in toilet stalls at Midwest airports.  Seriously, how can we move forward and just be part of every day life if people pretend they are someone they’re not.  My rant continues below…

After years of refusing to directly answer questions about his sexuality, Sean Hayes finally sits down with a major gay publication to reveals that he is indeed gay. Some quotes from his interview in the April edition of the Advocate:

“I am who I am. I was never in, as they say. Never.”
(What the f*ck does this mean?  Sorry, still a bit pissed off about him at this point.)

“Why would you go down that path with somebody who’s done so much to contribute to the gay community?” he asks. “That was my beef about it.  What more do you want me to do?  Do you want me to stand on a float?  And then what?  It’s never enough.”
(The level of arrogance…ugh)

“I feel like I’ve contributed monumentally to the success of the gay movement in America, and if anyone wants to argue that, I’m open to it.  You’re welcome, Advocate.”
(Because he played a gay character…WTF…thank you Sean, you have liberated the GLBT community…)

Okay, I’m finished with my comments.  I’ll just end by saying, “he’s no Ellen Degeneres”.  RANT COMPLETE.

Life can get busy. With work, kids, family commitments, friends, chores, and the general chaos of everyday life, it can be near impossible at times to sit down for a cup of tea, let alone squeeze in an hour of exercise regularly.

Estate Planning: The Basics For LGBT Families

by The Next Family March 25, 2016

With the passage of marriage equality last year, laws have been quickly changing across the United States. LGBT couples with or without children weren’t just given the right of marriage, they were provided new protections and benefits within their families. All of a sudden, LGBT couples and families had to figure out how to file jointly when it came to taxes, how to add...

Representation of Modern Families in Kid-Friendly Entertainment

by The Next Family March 24, 2016 1 Comment


By Alex Temblador

I recently wrote an article for The Next Family called, “Family-Friendly Films That Feature Adoption and Foster Care,” that shared wonderful family films with adoption or foster care story lines. My reasoning behind doing so was because every family deserves a chance to see similar families like theirs represented in various forms of entertainment.

The same can be said of other...
