no title

Such a fitting tribute…

He said:

"Hi everyone. This is Joe Biden and I wish I could be there with you in person to honor some truly inspiring trailblazers. Each of you gives meaning to Harvey Milk's words, 'Hope never remains silent.' And we need you. We need all of you. Because as we celebrate a year of equality in marriage, draconian state laws deny transgender Americans basic civil rights. And in nearly 70 countries, it's a crime. It's a crime to be who you are. And because the freedom to live freely means being free from bullying, free from harassment, and free from violence. You know, our hearts are still heavy for Orlando, but you're showing tonight that we are Orlando. We're all Americans. Unbowed. Unrelenting. We endure. We overcome. We're hopeful and we will not be silent."'

The event will also spotlight LGBT pioneers Billie Jean King, Harvey Fierstein, Marsha P. Johnson, and Sylvia Rivera. Stage presenters include Emma Stone, Macklemore, Lance Bass, Chloe Grace Moretz, Janet Mock, Wilson Cruz and Candis Cayne.

It airs at 8pm ET/PT.

To hear Biden's beautiful video message, ch-ch-check it out (below).

Emilia Clarke Finally Got Some Full Frontal Male Nudity On Game Of Thrones — How Did She Feel About It?

no title

Game Of Thrones may have shocked us with that heartbreaking "hold the door" moment, but the latest episode also introduced us to some brand new characters — one of which was an in-your-face penis!

During a scene where Ayra was scoping out her next target to assassinate at a nearby theater, the HBO fantasy series blessed (?) its viewers with some full frontal male nudity for the first time since season 2!

And since we all know Emilia Clarke is an avid proponent of more D on the show, she couldn't help but praise the series for including some onscreen peen!

Stopping by Monday's Late Show With Stephen Colbert, the actress — who recently stripped down for an "empowering" GoT scene when Daenerys overtook the Dothraki — said she was all for "junk equality," quipping:

Make that money, Robin!

Robin Wright is currently starring in probably the most prominent role of her career, but for some reason she hasn't always been making the same salary as her costar.

The 50-year-old actress and Kevin Spacey have played husband-and-wife team Claire and Frank Underwood on four seasons of House of Cards, but it wasn't until the later years of the Netflix drama that they finally achieved equality.

The three-time Emmy nominee stopped by the Rockefeller Foundation on Tuesday to chat about feminism in modern television, and ended up sharing her own personal battle with sexism, saying:

Meet The 10 LGBT Organizations In North Carolina Who Are Urging Artists To NOT Cancel Their Shows!

no title

We're supportive of any effort to right North Carolina's wrongs!

By now you've probably heard about the handful of Southern states who have passed anti-LGBT bills that limit rights to same sex couples and transgender individuals… but luckily the rest of the country has been fighting back.

In fact, celebrities, companies, and shows like Disney, Marvel, Bruce Springsteen, Billy Ray Cyrus, The Walking Dead, PayPal, and, more recently, Jimmy Buffett and Deutsche Bank have publicly condemned the Religious Freedom Acts for being blatantly discriminatory and have even punished the states by taking their businesses elsewhere.

However, while these boycotts have brought awareness of the bigotry to the National level, not everyone in North Carolina believes cancelling shows and projects is the best method of recourse.

North Carolina Needs You is a group of organizations and concerned citizens who are urging artists to play their scheduled events and to use them as platform to show lawmakers that they're wrong.

Local LGBT Centers and other queer collectives banded together following The Boss' announcement last Friday, saying:
