no title

This isn't exactly a good look for someone who is adamant that they're innocent…

On Tuesday, Calum McSwiggan was supposed to appear in El Lay court after being charged with filing a fake police report last month.

In case you don't remember, the YouTube star claimed he was jumped by three strangers outside The Abbey in West Hollywood during Pride weekend.

However, one of his alleged attackers took to social media to denounce the claims, arguing that the openly gay internet personality had actually beaten himself up.

Not to mention, the authorities revealed that one of the online celeb's injuries was sustained when he began to harm himself in a holding cell, where he had been taken for vandalizing a car that same night.

But when the 26-year-old's court date arrived, he didn't show because he had actually left the country!

Based on his social media posts, Calum wasn't sitting in Los Angeles court on Tuesday. Instead, he skipped his hearing to spend time in Spain with his family.

He posted this pic with his precious puppy (above) earlier in the week, writing:

"I've never been in any sort of closet . . . I was never really in the house. I think it's one thing to hide . . . and it's one thing to come out of the closet in a public statement . . . But I've always done me and never been shy . . . and have been vocal about it."

Gunman Headed For The LA Gay Pride Parade Had Rigged Rifle In A Way That 'Suggests His Purposes Are Deadly'

Filed under: Gay Gay GayBusted!Sad SadViolenceScary!Disgusting!Viral: NewsLGBT

So scary.

We're so glad he was caught before he could cause some serious harm.

Just hours after the tragic shooting at an Orlando gay club that killed 49 people and injured dozens on Sunday, police in Santa Monica, California thwarted another potential massacre when they arrested James Wesley Howell as he was headed to LA Gay Pride with a lot of weapons and explosives.

Now, we're learning just how deadly that scary situation could have been.

Recent reports say that the cops found a loaded assault rifle that had been rigged to shoot twice as much. According to authorities, the high-powered weapon was loaded with a 30-round magazine, and had ANOTHER inverted 30-round magazine taped to it.

Former FBI agent James Wedick explained that this mechanism would have allowed the 20-year-old to reload another 30 rounds almost immediately, doubling his ability to quickly kill people.

This story just keeps getting more heartbreaking as time goes on.

The United States is currently recuperating from the most fatal mass shooting in American history, but the death toll is especially hard on the LGBT community.

The terrorist attack took place during Latino Night at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida early Sunday morning, where 49 individuals were killed with another 53 injured, most of whom identified as queer.

While this news is impossible to rationalize, one of the best things to come from this tragedy has been the outpouring of love the city of Orlando has displayed for their gay brothers and sisters.

Blood donations in Florida reached an all-time high on Sunday, and now people outside the state can help out as well!

Crowdrise is a website similar to GoFundMe, and they've already raised $34,531 in just a few hours.

Plus, if you want to learn even more about specific local charities, you can visit their website HERE!!!

Hopefully this money can help the friends and families of the 49 victims during their time of need.

The Gunman Bound For Los Angeles' Gay Pride Parade Has Been Identified — Had Criminal History

Filed under: ViolenceScary!LGBT

no title

That's the face of James Wesley Howell.

He's the 20-year-old Indiana man who was placed under arrest Sunday morning after Santa Monica police discovered his vehicle was loaded with an arsenal of guns and explosives.

A concerned community member had sent in a tip about Howell prior to the arrest.

The armed gunman told authorities he was heading toward Los Angeles' annual Gay Pride Parade in West Hollywood and "wanted to harm" the celebration. According to reports, this isn't his first act of attempted gun violence.

We're now learning Howell was arrested just last October after pulling a gun out on his neighbor during an argument. He went with a plea deal that involved the firearms charge dropped, pleading guilty to intimidation, and one year probation.

As for what motivated today's attempted tragedy, officials are still working on sorting out his motives — although it's hard not to assume this was based on hate for the LGBT community.

We'll keep you updated as this story develops.

Filed under: Gay Gay GayMusic MinuteChris BrownTwitterControversyLGBT

Chris says he was never booked for the show!

Chris Brown stopped by Atlanta on Saturday to put on a performance for his One Hell Of A Nite tour, but one event promoter says he bailed on a gay pride event that same night.

Melissa Scott — the founder of the group sponsoring the LGBT event — claims Chris was slated to perform during Atlanta Black Gay Pride Weekend, but supposedly backed out after hearing that "a handful of gay men were present."

Um. What?

Melissa mentioned that she was still going back and forth with the singer's team at 2 a.m. the night he was allegedly set to go on, saying:

"I had to send text messages of pictures of my crowd to say, there's nothing but girls in here man."

She also said his people were asking her to take down the promotional photo she was using because he "looks a little feminine." The party promoter even said she had to call in Fetty Wap at the last minute to fill in for Chris.

And in spite of all the drama, she says the Ayo singer still kept his retainer fee!

However, the 26-year-old took to Twitter on Monday to shut the stories down, denying he even knew about the LGBT show:
