Ultimate Fighter Kyle Kingsbury made some waves during his weigh-in over the weekend for his retirement fight against Patrick Cummins. He dropped his pants to reveal a beautiful pair of pastel pink briefs with the words “Legalize Gay” written on them! Unfortunately he ended up losing the fight against Cummins, but he has won the hearts of gay men everywhere.

We know you go on YouTube for educational reasons (okay, and to check out that guy’s abs). The creators ASAP Science, of one of my favorite channels who have helped millions of viewers and I get smarter every day, have come out of the closet for a second time. Greg and Mitch have been together for seven years, and have been out in their personal lives, decided it was time to come out online because of the homophobic and trolling comments they have been getting on their videos.

Last weekend I took a quick get-away weekend vacation to Phoenix, Arizona. I know what you’re thinking, Phoenix of all places?! Well, let me tell you, I would do it again. And a big reason for that is the Phoenix Art Museum! Coming from the Bay Area, I would put the Phoenix Art Museum right up there with SFMOMA and the de Young museum!
Well here’s a thing I never even knew was in the works. Gaming giant Atari is getting ready to launch a specific LGBT themed mobile game! It’s called PRIDEFEST, a city-building game much like that of Roller Coaster Tycoon, but with LGBT peoples.
The Engadget article I found this fantastic news in, puts a lot of stress on the buying power of the LGBT community ($830 billion in the US) and strongly pushes the idea PRIDEFEST is just pandering to the community.
We have a small update since the last time we spoke of Kluwe and the Vikings. Vikings Special Teams Coach Mike Priefer, (the one who spoke of putting all gay people on an island and “nuking it until it glows.”) has been suspended for three games, and made to donate $100,000 to LGBT organizations by the Vikings organization.
Priefer also released a statement apologizing for what he said:
I owe an apology to many people – the Wilf family, the Minnesota Vikings organization and fans, my family, the LGBT community, Chris Kluwe and anyone else that I offended with my insensitive remark. I regret what has occurred and what I said. I am extremely sorry but I will learn from this situation and will work on educating others to create more tolerance and respect.
Since the news first came out that Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe was fired, it was immediately thought to be because of his outspoken LGBT stance. The Minnesota Vikings then hired Minnesota Supreme Court Chief Justice Eric Magnuson and former U.S. Justice Department attorney Chris Madel to do an independent investigation to see if there was credibility to that claim. Now, six months after the start of the investigation, the report is finished and in the hands of the Vikings.
