So, what else is new? Just like many other divisions of the U.S. Government, it just can’t fully get the job done. About a week ago, the Bureau released new statistics, as to the number of same-sex married couples in the U.S., which was estimated at 182,000 in 2012, and now has increased by 38% in 2013 to 252,000. Really?
I can remember, not too long ago in high school during the surge of computer availability, one of the near impossible things to do was get past the school imposed internet security filters. So anytime you wanted to get an answer or research LBGT life, you were blocked because the filter wasn’t set to separate porn from safe sites such as the HRC, Gladd, or Glsen. According to an AP article, Symantec isn’t the first internet security company to do this, but jumping on board is still a welcomed move. Here’s a statement from Symantec after the jump.
So I came across this post yesterday and I’ve been taking my time reading it. It’s a list of 20 celebrities, who their own admission, swing both ways. Some I knew about, some I suspected might be a secret superhero (like Josh Hutcherson) and some I literally had no idea about! This is a great article and while I’ve been pretty aware that bisexuality is getting a little better press and coverage these days I was reminded what a positive impact people coming out and being open about who they are.
I ran across an article just recently, that discusses the likely impact that, thru J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter, had on those of us who are millennials, which is someone who was born 1980 thru around 2000, and this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, as this generation pretty much grew up with the Harry Potter series.

Hey everyone, a bit of a different post today! There is a place in Thailand I recently came across in my studies for art class. I found Thailand’s White Buddhist Temple, which was built in 1997 by Chalermchai Kositpipat. The artist is a very devout Buddhist but wants to re-see art for the modern world. Even before you enter the temple you’ll come across red skulls on traffic cones that emphasis a mystic feel. The temples website reads: Continue reading
Here we have Luke (pictured left) and Adam Monasteros (right), twin 21 year-old brothers from Canada who bravely recorded their parents reaction when they came out of the closet. According to Adam, “They think Luke is gay. They have an idea, but they have no idea about me, like not a single clue.”
And then their parents react in the best way possible, check out the video after the jump!
I had a chance to take in When The Game Stands Tall over the weekend and I really liked it. It’s no Remember The Titans that’s for sure, and I think it tried a little hard to mimic that film, but it’s really well done. If I had to give it a grade in a classroom I’d award it a hearty B for very good. I don’t know if I’d recommend you pay full price at night for it but it’s definitely worth a matinee viewing after a cute lunch somewhere. What really stood tall for me was the hidden hottie Matthew Daddario.
