Ugh! Unbelievable.

For some ridiculously offensive reason, The Game recently spoke out about closeted gay men, and claimed that they're the reason AIDS is spreading!

He explains:c

Sad! 48% Of Gay Americans Are In The Closet At Work!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLGBT


How sad! To think there are so many people who everyday hide who they really are out of fear … It breaks our hearts!

A new study reveals that almost half of the college-educated homosexual Americans working today won't say that they are gay in the workplace. The study compiled by the Center for Work-Life Policy reveals that many of these individuals chose to live a "double life" - staying in the closet at work while being "out" in their personal lives.

The reasons for this vary, but mostly

Rachel Maddow Wants Other Gay News Anchors To Come Out Of The Closet!

Filed under: TV NewsGay Gay GayAnderson CooperSad SadLGBT


Whether she was referring to him or not, we think she still makes an excellent point!

Although most have made the assumption at this point that Anderson Cooper is gay, the new anchor has never officially come out of the closet, and fellow presenter Rachel Maddow recently spoke out about similar people in their position, claiming that they have a responsibility to publicly acknowledge their sexual preference!

She's quoted saying:

"I'm sure other people in the business have considered reasons why they're doing what they're doing, but I do think that if you're gay you have a responsibility to come out."

However, she later took to her blog to clarify her statement, and explain that she was not SPECIFICALLY referring to Cooper!

She explains:

"I wasn't asked about Anderson Cooper, I didn't say anything about him, he literally was never discussed during the interview at all — even implicitly. I don't tend to be shy when I criticize — you wouldn't have to read between the lines if that's what I was trying to do. I did not in my interview with The Guardian say anything about or to Mr. Cooper, nor would I. Although criticism of Mr. Cooper was intimated by The Guardian and picked up everywhere — I did not make that criticism in the interview, nor did I imply it, nor is it what I believe. I also believe that coming out makes for a happier life, but that's not a matter of ethics, that's just corny advice."

Fair enough, and agreed on all counts!

Given everything that's happened in the past year or so, we frankly can't understand why anyone who actually is gay and in a position to help others would want to keep their preference private, but we suppose everyone has to do what they think is right for them.

We WILL however, keep our fingers crossed and hope that some will come around soon!

Be PROUD of who are you, and don't let anyone else make you question that!

Boo, Richard Chamberlain

Filed under: Gay Gay GayFilm FlickersLGBT


For decades, Richard Chamberlain felt he had to hide his homosexuality from the world, especially those in the entertainment industry.

We can imagine how hard that must have been for him, being unable to be exactly who he wanted to be, but what we can't imagine is why he is now telling this generation's gay actors to stay in the closet.

According to Richard, the "tremendous amount of homophobia in our culture" should be enough of a reason for gay actors to hide their identity. He explained further to The Advocate:

"For an actor to be working [at all] is a kind of miracle, because most actors aren't," Chamberlain told The Advocate, the monthly magazine. So it's just silly for a working actor to say, "Oh, I don't care if anybody knows I'm gay" — especially if you're a leading man. Personally, I wouldn't advise a gay leading man-type actor to come out…"Despite all the wonderful advances that have been made, it's still dangerous for an actor to talk about that in our extremely misguided culture. Look at what happened in California with Proposition 8. Please, don't pretend that we're suddenly all wonderfully, blissfully accepted."

We appreciate where you are coming from, but there is really only one way to fix that - honesty.

Hiding the truth doesn't help broaden people's minds beyond stereotypes. It only gives the haters exactly what they want!

If we're looking for acceptance from the rest of the world, we first have to look to ourselves to be honest about who we are. That's the step forward the world truly needs.

Portia De Rossi Opens Up About Coming Out Of The Closet

Filed under: Gay Gay GayInspirationOprah WinfreyLGBT


It's amazing that she's been able to overcome so many obstacles and still be such a strong, well-spoken inspiration to so many.

Portia de Rossi recently opened up about coming to terms with her sexuality on The Oprah Winfrey Show, and also spoke out to those who may not feel ready to come out of the closet themselves!

She explained:

"Having to hide something like that just ruined me. It really, really killed me. I had always really loved men - and still do - and just kind of assumed that I would be straight. I think everybody assumes that you're gonna be heterosexual. And the thing that made me think that I wasn't, was I developed very strong feelings for my best friends. I had a series of mini-heartbreaks throughout my teens because my fantasy of what life could be like with my best friend wasn't shared with my best friend. My best friend wanted to get married to a man and have kids and I just wanted to be with them, and that's when I thought something was definitely different about me. But really it took me until I was about 18 when I realized I had to date other lesbians if I was ever going to fulfil that fantasy. Hiding your sexuality is the most horrible way to live and it really does a huge disservice to society, because if everybody who was gay came out in every profession, teachers, doctors, if everybody came out and said, 'I'm gay. Who cares?' it would make a big impact to what's happening with all this teenage suicide."

Completely true! We bet a lot of confused young men and women can certainly relate to those feelings!

Once again, thanks for being so brave and candid, bb!
