Dear Oreo, THIS RAINBOW ICING ROCKS!

oreo-supports-gay-pride-month

Just because Oreo cookies are black and white doesn't mean their stance on equality is!

The Kraft company declared its support for the LGBT community today by posting a photo of their famous cookie on Facebook and Twitter — only instead of the traditional frosting, this one houses a RAINBOW of delicious statements!

But as you can imagine, the 26.9 Oreo fans who liked their fan page just LOST IT… prompting an intense debate between the right and left wing via comment section!

This included such gems as:

Transgender Model Isis King Shows Her Pride For American Apparel

American Apparel is known for their racy ads, but the newest batch will definitely go down in history and for all the right reasons!

To promote LGBT equality for Pride month, the retailer selected America's Next Top Model alum Isis King to star in the adverts, making her the first transgender model to appear in any AA campaign.

The collection of tees read "Legalize Gay" and "Gay OK!" and 15% of proceeds will be donated to the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation or GLAAD.

We're loving the equality and glad to see that diversity has reached the fashion industry!

Benji Schwimmer Comes Out

The month of June is officially pride month for the LGBT community, and one reality competition winner has decided to publicly come out!

You probably remember Benji Schwimmer, the season two winner of So You Think You Can Dance, who impressed everyone with his incredible talent back in 2006!

Now, Benji has made the decision to open up about his sexuality and his life as a gay man, who, up until last year, was a devout Mormon.

Benji recently did an interview for MormonStories.org, where he talked about his experiences of being gay and Mormon and the struggles that came along with coming out.

Check out the eye-opening interview to hear about Benji’s brave and honest story HERE.

Wow, what a courageous thing to do…we are proud of you, Benji!

Unacceptable! UFC Throws As Many Punches As They Do Gay Slurs!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayZportzSad SadBradley CooperViolenceFamily

UFC fight

Ugh! We are not happy to hear about this.

While sports organizations like the NBA and MLB are working to end homophobia, others like the NHL seem to be tolerating it. Unfortunately, the UFC (Utlimate Fighting Championship) seems to be flat out endorsing anti-gay bigotry!

In recent incidents, not only have the athletes used gay slurs to taunt their opponents, but even the PRESIDENT of the organization, Dana White, is leading by poor example!

During an expletive-filled rant on YouTube, Mr. White not only called a female sports journalist a "dumb b*tch", but dropped this homophobic line:

Boo! Moscow Pride Parade Canceled!

Filed under: Gay Gay GaySad Sad

Proud

Ugh! So unfortunate!

A gay pride parade has once again been denied in Moscow, Russia.

Organizers thought they would be granted a permit for the parade after homophobic mayor Yuri Luzhkov was fired in September, but sadly the new mayor, Sergei Sobyanin, has followed in his predecessor's footsteps.

Gay activists received a letter from city officials this past Tuesday, the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia, denying a permit in fear the event will spark "civil unrest"

Activist Nikolai Alekseyev commented on the letter, saying:

"I don't think it was premeditated, it's simply a coincidence, but this coincidence is nonetheless symbolic. As events are held around the world — including at an official level — to mark the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia, Russia pursues its caveman, primitive policy of bans."

Primitive is an understatement! How about oppressive?

However, equality can not be beaten with a permit though and Nikolai says he still plans on holding a pride event. Good luck over there! Hope it's a blast!
