    I stumbled upon this article and now realize that it's from last year, but it's cool and I hadn't heard about this before, so I'm posting it anyway:

    Train and Carly Rae Jepsen Cancel Their Concert Appearances At The Boy Scouts of America Jamboree

    Carly Rae quote:

    “As an artist who believes in equality for all people, I will not be participating in the Boy Scouts of America Jamboree this summer,” Jepsen tweeted. “I always have and will continue to support the LGBT community on a global level…and stay informed on the ever changing landscape in the ongoing battle for gay rights in this country and across the globe.”
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    I'm have started a thread on the Ugandan situation in PI so that we can keep this one more 'positive.'

    I guess that opens the door a crack. Still a sort of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" Southie-Style. But the group can carry their MassEquality banner and wear their T-shirts...so that's something positive.

    The St Patrick's Day parade organisers in New York and Boston are stuck in the past of an Ireland that doesn't exist any more except in their own imaginations. It's pathetic really.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    And the irony is that LGBT Irish people can march openly in Dublin's St. Patrick's Day Parade!

    Mayor Walsh said that it's just one or two older members of the Southie parade committee who are so staunchly against changing their policy.

    In Surprisingly Bold Move, Scotland Offers Asylum to Gay Ugandans

    Humza Yousaf, a Scottish member of parliament and minister for external affairs, wrote a letter to UK Foreign Secretary William Hague urging him to "offer asylum to any Ugandans who feel threatened or persecuted by the legis*lation." He added, "Scotland will play her part in providing asylum for those seeking refuge from this draconian legislation."
    Wow. You GO, Scotland!!
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    Yeah, sure. I've no doubt that some of these actors and actresses were gay or bisexual, but it's strange that none are still around to refute it. And he slept with all of them (the men anyway) ? Wow, he must have been REALLY attractive. Sounds to me as though he's been adding a lot of fantasy flesh to the gay skeleton.
    I hear outside a million panicking birds, and know even out there comfort is done with; it has shattered even the stars, this creature at last come home to me.

    That's going to kill any aspirations of a healthy fanbase...which is thin to begin with!



    We only have one episode left until 2015!!!!!!!!!!

    OMG! Watching Daniel Radcliffe give it all in "Kill your Darlings" has left me drained. What a talent! I mean he gave a great performance.

    I urge everyone to go watch this film. It's an instant gay classic.


    Also, no one watched Looking's final episode? I thought it wrapped (for the most part) very nicely. Patrick needs to grow a bit more in order to be ready for a serious relationship.

    Richie needs to sort his baggage before he can think of having a stable relationship.

    Kevin, what an ass! Sorry but imo he used his position as a way to pressure Patrick into having sex with him.

    btw wouldn't there be security cameras in the sitting/sofa area? I am pretty sure an office like that would have them...

    I felt a bit let down by the last episode. I can't even put my finger on why. It sort of put in this closure over everything that seemed quite forced I guess?

    Sam Adams beer manufacturer pulls out of South Boston St. Patrick’s Day parade

    The makers of Sam Adams beer on Friday announced they are backing out of sponsoring South Boston’s St. Patrick’s Day parade in protest over parade organizers' refusal to allow members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community to march in the parade.
    Sam Adams is tied for first place in being the best selling domestically brewed beer. It has been a major sponsor of the St. Patrick's Day parade, but no longer. Several Boston radio stations have also pulled all support for this event.

    And Heineken pulled out of the NY St. Patrick's Day Parade:

    Heineken Pulls Sponsorship of NYC St. Patrick's Day Parade

    By Jess Wisloski on March 15, 2014 1:12pm

    Excerpt:

    New York City and Boston's bans on openly gay participants are in contrast to a Chicago tradition that has welcomed LGBT advocates since the 1990s, according to Time magazine.

    "Our city realized a long time ago that we have so much more in common than apart," Tom Tunney, Chicago’s first openly gay alderman, told the magazine. "We’re a city of cultures, and the LGBT community is a part of it."
