And the man she's going after for his ridiculous stance is Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton — who has supported the law that would allow businesses to deny service to the LGBT community.

He spoke out in a CNN interview, saying:

"I think it's important we have a sense of perspective. In Iran they hang you for the crime of being gay."

So you know that didn't sit well with Miles. She took to Twitter to call on her followers to be heard:

Move over straight characters! Television is getting gay!

In recent years, there has been an increasing amount of LGBT representation on the small screen, and we're totally loving it!

Not only were viewers keeping track of Kurt and Blaine — played by Chris Colfer and Darren Criss — on Glee, they're also watching the hot sex scenes between Connor and Oliver on How To Get Away With Murder!

And let's not forget about The Fosters on ABC Family with Stef, Lena, and their intimately endearing bedroom scenes!!

While we still have a long way to go, we love that society is embracing couples, of all ages, ethnicities, and of course, sexualities.

That's why we're taking a look at some of the hottest same-sex couple on the tube!

Indiana Pizzeria Forced To Close After Owners' Public Refusal To Cater Same-Sex Weddings!

no title

Memories Pizza in Walkerton, Indiana made national headlines when they became the first business to publicly agree with Indiana Governor Mike Pence and his controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act — and to refuse catering service to same-sex weddings.

Well, it didn't take long before the pizzeria was inundated with threatening phone calls and social media posts.

So much in fact, that the pizza establishment has had to temporarily shut down.

The O'Connor family, who own Memories Pizza, say they aren't opening up their doors anytime soon until the phone calls and such become a lot less scary.

Though we obviously do not agree with their stance against same-sex rights, we can't condone threats of violence.

No matter how ignorant or discriminatory we may find their practices, we hope in the future that people will be smart and boycott and vote with their dollars — instead of with threats.

Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard Says All Businesses MUST Treat People Equally In Light Of Discriminatory Legislation & The NCAA Final Four Game

Filed under: Gay Gay GayZportzLegal Matters

This is the man of the hour!

Recently, Indiana passed some legislation, stating that employees could refuse service to someone on religious grounds, which was clearly targeting the LGBT community.

[ Related: Wilco Cancels Indiana Show Over Controversial Religious Freedom Law! ]

On Monday, Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard let it be known that this is NOT okay and put an executive order into place which states that EVERYONE must follow the city's human rights ordinance, if the business receives government funds in some way. He also called for the state's civil rights laws to include the LGBT community "immediately."

NCAA President Mark Emmert kicked off the overall discussion, saying that he was "very concerned" about any sporting events being held there, including the Final Four, because of the discrimination in the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

So, Ballard agreed and held a press conference where he discussed all of the issues. Most notably, he said:

Miley Cyrus, Hillary Clinton, & More Speak Out Against Indiana's New LGBT Discrimination Law!

no title

Indiana just passed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act after Governor Mike Pence signed it into law, and people are not happy!

Why?

Because the thrust of the new law is that businesses are now legally free to discriminate based on sexual orientation and gender identity as long as they claim their religion is against it.

[ Video: Perez Talking #BoycottDolceGabbana On CNN! ]

But not all businesses want to turn people away based on prejudice. The NCAA and Gen Con have already threatened to lessen their presence or pull out of the state entirely.

Yep, the jocks AND the nerds are against it! LOLz!

But those aren't the only strange bedfellows this deplorable bill is making! Celebs from Miley Cyrus to Hillary Clinton have come out against the law on social media.

See some of the best responses (below):
