Honoring the technological god on the anniversary of his death, Yeezy tweet-tweeted:

That's our gurl!

Although Russia's Deputy Prime Minister has labeled Madonna a slut for trying "lecture everyone on morality," she's not even remotely deterred from sticking up for what is right!

She took to a St. Petersburg stage on Thursday night (even amidst bomb threats) to entertain her fans and continue to spread a positive message about "love" and equality.

Filed under: Icky Icky PooMedia MinutePolitikPerezTV

Yikes! Sounds like we're REALLY going to learn a lot about Jackie O during this show.

Martin Luther King Jr Maya Angelou Memorial Statue

Martin Luther King Jr has been paraphrased for the sake of space on his memorial statue.

Carved on the north face of the thirty-foot-tall granite statue, the memorial reads "I was a drum major for justice, peace and righteousness."

Dream Realized! Samuel L. Jackson To Make Broadway Debut!

samuel-jackson-broadway-debut.jpg

In one hell of a role!!!

It was announced this afternoon that Samuel L. Jackson will be making his Broadway debut this October in the new Broadway production, The Mountaintop, by Katori Hall. Samuel will be stepping into the shoes of the legendary Dr. Martin Lurther King as the show explores Dr. King's last moments before his assassination.

It was rumored that Halle Berry was to play the role of Camae, a mysterious maid at the Lorraine Motel, the setting of the play, but the producers have confirmed that due to her "child custody issues," they've had to go in another direction.

Congrats on the honor, Samuel. It's a big role for your first time out, but if anyone can handle it, it's you! Good luck!

Inspiring High School Senior Comes Out To Her Peers During Assembly!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayInspiration

Words cannot do justice to just how awesome this girl is.

Check out this truly inspirational speech from a High School senior named Kayla K., who bravely and articulately announced that she is a lesbian to her classmates during an assembly in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.

We cannot imagine how difficult this must have been for her, which is why her courage and conviction needs to not only be applauded, but also shared with as many people as possible!

These words not only need to be heard, but understood and ACCEPTED, because it's the fact-of-the-matter truth in every single way!

Bravo, bb! The LGBT community is lucky to have you.

EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!!
