snoop revises gay rap

Now THIS is exactly what we like to hear!

While Snoop Dogg Lion has always been vocal in his support of the LGBT community, he recently raised some eyebrows during a recent interview by offering a very limited perspective on the possibility of homosexuality being accepted by the rap and hip-hop community!

However, it appears that the Reincarnated version of Bob Marley has re-evaluated his perspective on the matter, and in a new interview, now asserts that with the continuous merging of so many genres in the music world, as well as the political and cultural progression toward acceptance and unity, there may very well be openly gay rappers and hip-hop artists much sooner than later!

As he explains:

Emma Stone’s sensational sweetheart, Andrew Garfield, recently made his feelings clear on the status of marriage equality.

And he’s all for it!!

In 2006, the man we now know and love as Spider-Man played a role in the production of Beautiful Thing, a gay-themed play. This play is being revived in West London, and The Times of London got a chance to talk to our favorite spidey hero about both the play and same-sex marriage.

He summarized his thoughts on marriage equality in a way only a superhero could, saying:

Snoop Reveals Serious Ignorance When Discussing Homosexuality In The Rap Community!

snoop on gay community

Well, this is extremely disappointing to hear.

Snoop Lion recently spoke out about whether or not he believes Frank Ocean's decision to come out last year will make it easier for gay people to be open about their sexuality in the rap world, and sadly, his opinion on the matter illustrates just how ill-informed he is about the LGBT community!

According to him:

Who's The Boss' Danny Pintauro Is ENGAGED! But Marriage Equality Fight Halts Wedding Plans!

danny pintauro engaged

OMG.

Danny Pintauro is all grown up and head over heels in love!

The former Who's The Boss star is engaged to BF Wil Tabares.

Here's how it all went down: Danny and Wil took a break from their hectic lives in Las Vegas to celebrate their one year anniversary in Palm Springs. Over a romantic— we imagine candle lit— dinner on Wednesday evening, Wil popped the question to Danny with a stunning right wrapped in a bow.

Could it be ANYMORE perfect??!

Unfortunately, the nuptials are going to be a bit more complicated than the engagement.

Danny explained:

The weed and animal advocate has added marriage equality to his list of causes because he doesn't get what the big deal is!

SCOTUS Hears Oral Arguments About Prop 8 & Marriage Equality! Listen IN FULL Here!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikLGBT

It's an exciting time in humanity's history people!

Yesterday, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Hollingsworth v. Perry, the official federal constitutional challenge to California's Proposition 8.

In case you missed ANY part of the explosive discussion, don't fret! Take a good, long listen (above)!

If you are somehow unaware of Prop 8 or the controversy that surrounds it, let us briefly inform you…

Prop 8 is a state constitutional amendement that received a majority of Californian votes in November 2008. The proposition declares "only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California."

Thus, any same sex marriages that had previously been recognized in the eyes of the law were no longer considered so, and same sex couples were (again) unable to legally get married.

Thankfully, this GROSS violation of equal rights is FINALLY being addressed, and on a nation-wide platform!

And whatever the Supreme Court decides, it's going to be MONUMENTAL.

Here's to a more tolerant, enlightened future society!
