Mandy Moore: My Mom and 2 Brothers Are Gay
Star of the buzzed-about TV series This Is Us (and former pop princess) Mandy Moore recently opened up about her family for the very first time. We’re the first to admit that we had no clue she came from such a nontraditional family, and we think it’s pretty fucking cool.
During a recent sit-down with Byrdie, Moore was asked if she ever feels pressure to lead a “traditional” life of marrying, having kids, etc. As it turns out, she doesn’t, because her family is “the least traditional.”
High School Is Sweet (and Scary AF) in This Jaw-Dropping New Video
What starts out as a sweet video capturing the restless environment and frustrating love prospects of high school eventually turns to carnage and bloodshed—albeit off-screen—in this brand-new video by Sandy Hook Promise, an organization dedicated to preventing gun-related deaths.
We’re pretty sure you’ll never guess the 180-degree spin this video plays out in its two-and-a-half-minute span.
“When you don’t know what to look for, or can’t recognize what you are seeing, it can be easy to miss warning signs or dismiss them as unimportant. That can lead to tragic consequences,” says Sandy ...
Tom Ford to GQ Magazine: ‘All Men Should Be Penetrated’
One of the most well-respected and sexiest names in the fashion world has been making quite a few headlines of late. It’s all thanks to a recent non-sartorial accomplishment: the release of his sophomore writing and directing effort, Nocturnal Animals, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Amy Adams and Aaron-Taylor Johnson (whom we previously said was the real reason to see the film).
Ford’s latest headline-inducing sound bite, though, is rather … provocative.
The writer of GQ‘s recent profile of the prolific fashion master looks back to the last time Ford was interviewed by ...

So reads the page Piane has set up for “Lucian Album”:
I wanna make a bomb ass album.
The money is going to be to hire an orchestra, orchestrator, copyists, producers, mixing, ...

Rule number one in gay cinema: Never fall in love with Brian Kinney. Brian Kinney is the iconic champion of unbridled gay hedonism in Showtime’s Queer As Folk, desired by all and beholden to none. To fall in love with him is to fall in love with the uncaring avatar of sport-fucking and one-night-stands. Heartache …

This Is Why I Like to Cry on Airplanes
I don’t know what my problem is. I’m sitting here on flight AA70, Dallas to Frankfurt. Tears are quietly running down my cheeks. The flight attendant just tapped me on the shoulder: “Are you alright?” She followed up with a “Would you like some tea or coffee?” so I’m not sure if she noticed the tears or not. I’d like to think she didn’t.
I’ve never been one to be shy about crying. To be completely honest, I love the sensation. I love the dry eyes afterwards, the salty cheeks. Whatever emotional ...

Check out a collection of some of our favorite dogs and doggie daddies:

Donald Trump’s Worst Cabinet Appointees — So Far
I keep hearing optimists say about the Donald administration, “hey, don’t worry, just wait and see what they do — maybe it won’t be so bad.”
But we don’t have to wait. He’s already appointed or is considering a bunch of people for his administration who had a long track record of opposing equality for queer people. There will be literally thousands of new people hired as part of this administration, but the ones at the top have already proven that they’re a huge danger to LGBT people everywhere.
For example, Tom Price at ...
How Opera and Raves Gave Birth to Seattle Drag Superstar Mama Tits
“Originally I was a singer, a musical theater kid,” says Mama Tits, the glorious Seattle drag performer. Before she was a towering colorful singer, Mama was Brian, a meek opera-singing teen in Idaho.
Recently Brian opened up about his past on my podcast, The Sewers of Paris, where I talk to gay men about the entertainment that changed their lives. For him, at least at first, it was shows like Tosca.
“It was like getting thrown into a massive amount of phenomenal talent,” he recalled. During his free time, he would just ...
Oakland Warehouse Party Fire Leaves Several Dead, Many Missing
A fire broke out in an Oakland, Calif., warehouse late Friday night that has left at least nine people dead and emergency responders searching for at least a dozen more in the ashes. The converted warehouse space was hosting an electronic music party where many of those present were our queer brothers and sisters.
The inferno—which began around 11:30 p.m.—reportedly left many trapped on the building’s second floor.
The Ghost Ship in Oakland’s Fruitvale neighborhood was an artists’ studio, according to The New York Times, and was the site of a ...
Activists Demand PreP, Intersex Inclusion at LGBTI World Conference
The 28th ILGA World Conference just took place in Bangkok, Thailand. The gathering of more than 800 participants presented an opportunity for activists around the world to come together, learn and strategize about international LGBTI rights.

#NewMusicFriday, Dec. 2, 2016: Kate Bush, Bright Light Bright Light, Rolling Stones
Never thought we’d write a sentence like the following, but this week it’s all about the Bush. Kate Bush, that is, whose live album takes our top slot, followed by a great EP from gay electro legend-in-the-making Bright Light Bright Light, some band called The Rolling Stones (heard of them?), and Atlanta star Donald Glover’s third release as Childish Gambino.
Kate Bush – Before the Dawn
No doubt this live document will best serve those lucky thousands who had the money and the time to see this legend’s return to performance ...
The 7 Deadly Gay Sins (and How to Repent For Each)
Everyone has heard about the seven deadly sins — lust, sloth, gluttony, etc. — but they’re sooooo medieval too much fun to take seriously as sins. Instead, we’ve come up with seven modern gay sins that are truly toxic. So join us in these seven circles of hell, but fear not — alongside each sin, we’ve offered a penance to help even the worst sinners work their way into Purgatory.
(NOTE: we’ve used the word “gay” for humor and brevity’s sake — and because gay men came up with ...
