After North Carolina passed a bigoted anti-LGBT house bill, the state has been blasted by everyone from music legends, to late night hosts, and even porn websites!

Now, Barack Obama is speaking out on the law that limits anti-discrimination protections for gay, lesbian, and transgender people, and — surprise! — he's not a fan.

On Friday, POTUS criticized the state law during a press conference on his three day visit to London.

In response to the U.K.'s travel advisory warning British citizens about possible discrimination when traveling to certain states, Obama encouraged tourists that they will be "treated with extraordinary hospitality" if they stop by North Carolina.

However, the president made it clear that he thinks their new legislation should be "overturned." He said:

This is so sad.

A Los Angeles man is dead after his father allegedly killed him over being gay, according to police and prosecutors.

Shehada Khalil Issa, 69, has been arrested after allegedly shooting his son, 29-year-old Amir Issa, pictured above, at their North Hills home in a Los Angeles neighborhood on Friday.

The older man's 68-year-old wife was also found dead of gunshots in the home.

The father, who had apparently threatened to kill the son before because of the younger man's sexual orientation, claimed self defense in the shooting.

However, police and prosecutors doubt that story. Homicide detective John Doerbecker said in an interview:

Caught In The Grindr: Yet Another Gay Scandal Involving A Politician!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikLGBT

Randy Boehning

Now how does this make sense?!

A 12-year member of North Dakota's state assembly, Republican Randy Boehning, was revealed to have a profile on Grindr, a popular app amongst gay, bi, and curious guys. The Grindr profile in question is that of ‘Top Man!' and has the description:

"Seems I haven't found mister right yet, so need to keep looking for and having fun on the way! Hit me up boys."

That's all fine and well except Boehning is actually known for repeatedly voting against a bill that, if passed, would have included sexual orientation to the state's anti-discrimination law. OH THE HYPOCRISY!

Boehning claims that an employee at the Capitol had mentioned to him that another lawmaker was going to out him if he continued to vote against bills granting equality and protection to gays.

The hard proof came forward when, Dustin Smith, a local 21-year-old claims he was sent an unsolicited picture of Boehning's penis and several other messages and leaked them to The Forum earlier last month due to Boehning's discriminatory voting.

Smith's opinion on Boehning and his voting was perfectly summed up by his statement:

Obama Asked A Texan Cashier If He Was Gay And The Man Replied In The BEST Way Possible!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikBarack ObamaFunnyLGBT

obama equal rights

We LOVE Daniel Webb.

Who is Daniel, you may ask??!

The Texas man just so happened to be working the cash register at Franklin Barbecue in Austin when President Barack Obama made a surprise visit and the conversation he has with THE Commander In Chief was EPIC!

Here's how it all went down on Thursday:

When Obama was paying for his BBQ deliciousness, Daniel slammed his hand down on the counter and said:

"Equal rights for gay people!"

BOLD. Most people would stutter around the leader of one of the most powerful nations in the world, but wait, it gets better!

When Obama asked if Daniel was gay, he replied:

"Only when I have sex."

LOLz!

And the exchange ended with a fist pump and a giggle.

Like we said, EP-IC!!!!!

Larry explained:
