A mother's love knows no bounds…
On Thursday, at the 2016 Democratic National Convention, Chelsea Clinton paid tribute to the most important woman in her life: her mother and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
Before introducing her "hero" to the stage, the 36-year-old told the packed audience what it was like having Hillary as her mom. Not surprisingly, she was kind, loving, and strong; the same qualities needed in a President.
Chelsea echoed her mother's sentiments that "women's rights are human rights" and that "LGBT rights are human rights" as well.
We feel so honored to be a part of such a historic night.

You definitely heard her Roar!
The singer then launched into a performance of her new song Rise, and then her mega hit Roar!
Miz Perry not only brought A-list power, she brought passion and energy to a beautiful evening celebrating a beautiful woman!

What a disappointment.
On July 28, the board of directors of Cleveland Pride, Inc., announced the cancellation of it's 28th annual festival and pride parade scheduled for August 13. The statement cited safety concerns and a "changing social climate" as the primary reason for canceling the event.
Hmm… this wouldn't have anything to do with the recent Republican National Convention held in the city just last week, would it? Considering the insane levels of hate coming out of the convention, we wouldn't be surprised to learn of lingering feelings of homophobia.
In a statement release to the press, the board of directors explained:
"We have been entrusted by our community to create a secure parade and festival environment for our LGBTQ brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, aunts, uncles, friends and allies. Because of the changing social climate, Cleveland Pride did not have enough time to engage in the development of awareness programs and training that we believe is critical in today's environment. Therefore, we regretfully cancelled our 28th annual parade, rally and festival this year."
How upsetting. Maybe the event organizers received word of a serious and credible threat which we aren't aware of — it's clear they felt pressure for some reason or another to forgo the festivities.
In response to the bad news, the LGBT Community Center of Greater Cleveland stated:
"We are deeply disappointed in the absence of the Cleveland Pride celebration this year. From the tragedy of the Pulse nightclub shooting to the historic passage of a trans nondiscrimination ordinance here in Cleveland to the ongoing fight for full LGBTQ rights across the country, this is a time when we desperately need an opportunity to be together and to be visible."
We couldn't have said it better ourselves! This is the time to UNITE in the face of hate!
Despite today's unfortunate decision, we hope the people of Cleveland decide to rally around their LGBTQ friends and loved ones. Stay strong, Cleveland!

Blake Shelton Gets Into It With Debra Messing On Twitter — After She Calls On Gwen Stefani To Stop Him From Voting Donald Trump!
Laura may have mysteries… but Debra puts it all out in the open!
Never have we agreed more with someone who didn't say a word!
Political commentator Angela Rye gave an eye-roll of epic proportions on Wednesday night during a CNN Tonight segment after the Democratic National Convention.
Rye was sitting on a panel to discuss Hillary Clinton's historic nomination, but couldn't stop herself from rolling her eyes when conservative correspondent Kayleigh McEnany tried to remind everyone that Donald Trump has done "great things" just like Hillary.
After criticizing Clinton for her leadership in the State Department, McEnany was asked by host Don Lemon what she thought of Bill Clinton's DNC speech, in which he referenced Hillary's record of "helping with school and adoptive parents."
When McEnany shot back with "Donald Trump has done great things in his private time, too," Rye could not contain her disgust — and let out one historic eye-roll:
Donald Trump Tries To Take Back Those Russian Email Threats, AKA Finally Learns That His Comments Have Consequences!
This very well may be the first time he's ever been told "No" in his life! Or maybe "Nyet"…
If you're anywhere near Trump Headquarters right not, you may want to cover your ears… because Donald Trump is about to have his biggest temper tantrum to date!
The controversial comments sparked enough outrage from Republicans and Democrats alike to force Donald to apologize on FOX News on Thursday, where he tried to responded:
"Of course I'm being sarcastic."
Joking or not, his "sorry" may have been too little, too late because
