Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GayKevin SpaceyOscarsViolenceSexControversyLGBT

Kevin Spacey

GLAAD is slamming Kevin Spacey for his decision to come out as gay amid an accusation of sexual assault.

As we previously reported, Anthony Rapp accused the Oscar winner over the weekend of making a sexual advance towards him back when he was only 14. In response to Rapp's allegation, the House of Cards actor claimed he had no recollection of the incident, but noted that it was likely just "deeply inappropriate drunken behavior."

He also made a point to say that he is now choosing "to live as a gay man."

13 Most Damaging Movies To LGBT Community In 2016, According To GLAAD — Do YOU Agree With This List??

Filed under: Film FlickersLGBTSocial Issues

no title

GLAAD released their 2017 Studio Responsibility Index, in which they rate Hollywood on its representation of the LGBT community in all the films released in 2016.

Sadly, no studio did well, as the majority of wide release films featured "LGBTQ characters who lack substance and are often treated only as a punchline, a dangerous message which keeps old prejudices alive both here in the U.S. and around the world."

The list of failing movies includes some obvious offenders but also some pretty surprising ones… with which you may not completely agree!

It's been over three weeks now since the tragic shootings at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida and thankfully the push for change and awareness isn't going away any time soon!

We're not glad about this news…

Even though LGBT rights have been threatened throughout the country over the past few weeks, we were content knowing that our fave celebs were doing everything in their power to protect queer individuals.

Well, it seems as though we were giving Hollywood too much credit — that is, at least according to the latest findings by GLAAD!

North Carolina Has No Future Now With Nick Jonas & Demi Lovato! They Cancelled Their Tour Stops Because Of That Anti-LGBTQ Law!

Way to go, you two!

Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato have decided to cancel their upcoming tour stops in North Carolina.

The pop powerhouses were supposed to play shows in both Raleigh and Charlotte, but have decided to pull the plug on those performances because of the state's anti-LGBTQ legislation.

About a month ago, Governor Pat McCrory signed House Bill 2, which states that local cities and towns can no longer create their own rules banning discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

HB2 also says that transgender individuals must use the bathrooms that match the "biological sex" on their birth certificates in public schools, government agencies, and public college campuses.

In light of this terrible piece of legislation, the musicians announced on Monday that their Honda Civic Tour: Future Now will not be stopping in NC, sharing their joint statement on Instagram.
