Rutgers To Try New Gender Neutral Housing Program!

Filed under: Gay Gay Gay

Might not be an accurate picture

This is pretty fab!

Rutgers University New Brunswick campus is going to try a gender neutral housing program for three dorms to help spread equality!

We're sure some people will have a problem with this, but the reasoning is so pure!

Here's what it's about:

Starting this fall, gay, lesbian and transgender students at Rutgers University's New Brunswick campus can choose either male or female roommates under the pilot program.

Heterosexual students will also be permitted to live in rooms with students of the opposite sex. Men and women will share bathrooms.

So great! This is DEF a way to make people feel more comfortable and welcomed!

And hey, if people have a problem with it they can go live in the usual type of housing elsewhere on campus! The new initiative isn't replacing all standard housing.

We're curious to see how this works! We bet it'll be great!

We wish you the best Rutgers, and your students!! We're so excited for you guys!

Thoughts??

Austrian Dancing With The Stars To Feature Two Men Dancing Together!

austrian-dancing-with-the-stars-to-feature-two-men-dancing-together

YES! It is seriously about effing time!

The Austrian version of the hit reality competition Dancing With The Stars will be the next edition to feature same-sex dance partners, as gay TV celebrity Alfons Haider - which many believe to have inspired Sacha Baron Cohen's Brüno character - will be dancing with castmember Balazs Ekker!

He revealed:

"I am going to dance with a heterosexual. This is not about being gay. I do not want my appearance on the show to be reduced to homosexuality. This is about the show, about entertainment. I am not the gay Joan of Arc."

Absolutely amazing! And the exact attitude that we like to hear!

Ekker also revealed that neither men will be comprising their masculinity to conform to the male/female roles as partners, and explains:

"There is no 100 percent answer to this because no one has done this before. But there is no way I am going to don a skirt and stockings to give the impression we're normal."

You guys are making history here! It's about time that this happened in US - and STAT!

We're so thrilled for you both, and cannot wait to see you how do in the competition!

Congratulations!

Same Sex Kissing Is Popular Among Straight Men In The UK

Filed under: Gay Gay GayZportz

soccer players kiss after a goal

Straight boys kissing??? Well, in Universities and high schools in the UK it's common for straight men to kiss.

Researcher, Eric Anderson, a sociologist at Bath University, said that there has been a move toward a "nicer, softer" ideal of masculinity.

In a study of 145 British university and high school students Anderson discovered that 89% had kissed a male heterosexual friend on the lips at some point. These boys all identified as heterosexual and did not think of the kissing as sexual.

This trend of same sex kissing has skyrocketed, most likely starting on the professional soccer field where players often share kisses after goals. This made kissing between men more acceptable for college and high-school players and now it's spreading to those non-athletes.

And although it also turns out that these kisses often happen during a night of drinking, the men aren't ashamed or question their sexuality.

Anderson explained in his findings that growing acceptance of same sex kissing doesn't mean that homophobia is gone, just that masculine ideals are changing.

We're totally ok with this, and that the "macho" sense of being a tough guy is slowly disappearing!

Do U think it is likely same-sex kissing will become more popular in the States soon?

This Is Why We Love Cheno!

After Newsweek's appalling article written by Ramin Setoodeh, that stated that gay actors can't pull off playing heterosexual, gay ally and all-around talented amazingness Kristin Chenoweth has commented on how "horrendously homophobic" the article was, saying:

As a longtime fan of Newsweek and as the actress currently starring opposite the incredibly talented (and sexy!) Sean Hayes in the Broadway revival of Promises, Promises, I was shocked on many levels to see Newsweek publishing Ramin Setoodeh’s horrendously homophobic 'Straight Jacket,' which argues that gay actors are simply unfit to play straight. From where I stand, on stage, with Hayes, every night — I’ve observed nothing 'wooden' or 'weird' in his performance, nor have I noticed the seemingly unwieldy presence of a 'pink elephant' in the Broadway Theater. (The Drama League, Outer Critics Circle, and Tony members must have also missed that large animal when nominating Hayes’ performance for its highest honors this year.)

I’d normally keep silent on such matters and write such small-minded viewpoints off as perhaps a blip in common sense. But the offense I take to this article, and your decision to publish it, is not really even related to my profession or my work with Hayes or Jonathan Groff (also singled out in the article as too 'queeny' to play 'straight.')

This article offends me because I am a human being, a woman and a Christian. For example, there was a time when Jewish actors had to change their names because anti-Semites thought no Jew could convincingly play Gentile. Setoodeh even goes so far as to justify his knee-jerk homophobic reaction to gay actors by accepting and endorsing that 'as viewers, we are molded by a society obsessed with dissecting sexuality, starting with the locker room torture in junior high school.' Really? We want to maintain and proliferate the same kind of bullying that makes children cry and in some recent cases have even taken their own lives? That’s so sad, Newsweek! The examples he provides (what scientists call 'selection bias') to prove his 'gays can’t play straight' hypothesis are sloppy in my opinion. Come on now!

Openly gay Groff is too 'queeny' to play Lea Michelle’s boyfriend in GLEE, but is a 'heartthrob' when he does it in Spring Awakening? Cynthia Nixon only 'got away with it' ’cause she peaked before coming out? I don’t know if you’ve missed the giant Sex and the City movie posters, but it seems most of America is 'buying it.' I could go on, but I assume these will be taken care of in your 'Corrections' this week.

Similarly, thousands of people have traveled from all over the world to enjoy Hayes’ performance and don’t seem to have one single issue with his sexuality! They have no problem buying him as a love-torn heterosexual man. Audiences aren’t giving a darn about who a person is sleeping with or his personal life. Give me a break! We’re actors first, whether we’re playing prostitutes, baseball players, or the Lion King. Audiences come to theater to go on a journey. It’s a character and it’s called acting, and I’d put Hayes and his brilliance up there with some of the greatest actors period.

Lastly, as someone who’s been proudly advocating for equal rights and supporting GLBT causes for as long as I can remember, I know how much it means to young people struggling with their sexuality to see out & proud actors like Sean Hayes, Jonathan Groff, Neil Patrick Harris and Cynthia Nixon succeeding in their work without having to keep their sexuality a secret. No one needs to see a bigoted, factually inaccurate article that tells people who deviate from heterosexual norms that they can’t be open about who they are and still achieve their dreams. I am told on good authority that Mr. Setoodeh is a gay man himself and I would hope, as the author of this article, he would at least understand that. I encourage Newsweek to embrace stories which promote acceptance, love, unity and singing and dancing for all!

We couldn't have said it better ourselves!! We love, love, LOVE Cheno!
