Apple CEO Tim Cook Stands Up For The Rights Of Everyone In The Face Of Horrible Discriminatory Legislation — Read His Powerful Words HERE

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal Matters

no title

There are some seriously awful pieces of legislation that are being proposed all over the country these days.

Recently, in Arkansas, employees now can refuse service to a person on religious grounds, and no other reason. In Texas, legislation was proposed that would strip employees of their salaries and benefits simply for issuing same-sex marriage licenses, no matter what the Supreme Court has to say.

Well, Apple CEO Tim Cook was raised in the south during the civil rights era, and he's making sure his voice is heard. The exec penned a column in the Washington Post where he made it clear that Apple will accept anyone and everyone because nondiscrimination is why people came to America in the first place.

Cook started by acknowledging, "There's something very dangerous happening in states across the country."

We could paraphrase what he said, but the way that Tim laid it all out, literally in black and white, is so powerful that you should read it for yourself:

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikGIFs

no title

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS), also known as the Mormon Church, has always had a strained relationship with the LGBT community.

For some dumb reason, LGBT and religion don't always mix well.

That's why it's so great that the Mormon Church is supporting LGBT nondiscrimination legislation!

The Mormon leaders had a rare news conference and that's when they announced their support for the LGBT nondiscrimination bills!

Hollywood Isn't So Gay-Friendly After All?? It's True, According To THIS!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayBusiness BlitzGIFs

This is just sad.

It seems like Hollywood accepts the LGBT community with open arms, but this a study of 5,700 SAG-AFTRA members might prove that isn't the case.

UCLA's LBGT-focused Williams Institute discovered that the majority of lesbian, gay, and bisexual performers believe directors and producers are "biased against LGBT performers."

53 percent to be exact.

SO SAD.

The study also claimed that MORE THAN a third of participants have witnessed some sort of "disrespectful treatment" to entertainers on set who identify as LGBT — including anti-gay comments.

In the 7th round, with the 249th overall pick in this year’s NFL draft, the St. Louis Rams selected Michael Sam, making him the first openly gay player ever drafted by a professional football team.

But if Tony Dungy had any say, it never would have happened.

The former Indianapolis Colts coach, who makes no secret of his own conservatism and evangelical faith, told a Tampa Bay paper this week:

Such a great idea, Logo TV!

The cable channel announced today their brand new annual special called Trailblazers, which will showcase the brave men and women who have fought for LGBT rights and paved the way for those who are out and proud!

We love it!

It’s not always easy to get A-list guests to show up to the inaugural year of an event, but it looks like Logo had no problem landing some BIG names for this!

Daniel Radcliffe will be on hand to present! The Harry Potter star has been a long-time supporter of the Trevor Project, as well as the star of several gay roles and movies!

Also scheduled to make an appearance are Jared Leto, Kylie Minogue, Ariana Grande, Rita Ora, and Iggy Azalea, along with a musical performance from A Great Big World!

AH-Mazing!!!

The show will premiere on June 26th during one of the most historic weeks of gay rights - the 45th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, and the one-year anniversary to the day of DOMA being overruled!

It’s going to be a night of celebration, for sure!

Detroit Academy Of Arts & Sciences Kids Sing Happy For Pharrell On Ellen! They're So Cute! Watch Their AMAZING Talent HERE!

Your Reaction?

We love it when Pharrell goes on Ellen!

He's so cool, with his music skills, his park ranger hat and his immortal vampire blood/ageless face. LOLz!

We especially love when he gives an impassioned speech on gay rights and gets a very phallic hat!

Honestly, we just hope he goes on her show so much they have to rename it
