RoadMarriage equality faces tough road in Illinois this year: "The conventional wisdom in Springfield is that lawmakers will first focus on winning March 20 primary contests as they run in new districts and then attempt to pass a budget and escape the spring session taking as few controversial votes as possible. 'It's going to be a tough year to pass any legislation that's outside of budget and pension issues,' said Sen. David Koehler, a Peoria Democrat who championed the civil union legislation. 'It's going to more of an election-year agenda in the state Legislature.'"

ManganielloRoadJoe Manganiello smolders for OUT. “I was a pretty gothic, dark kid, obsessed with monsters. I loved Halloween and skulls. I was just that kid. My first concert was Pantera, Sepultura, and Biohazard. I loved industrial like Ministry and Revolting Cocks. I was in love with the chick bassist in White Zombie with fluorescent green hair. It’s great that, for a living, I’m associated with full moons and wolves!”

    Joe Manganiello’s face, eyes has sth which melts me. I would love to be in his arms. Dirty me, dirty thoughts…

    Thank you for the AIDS quilt reminder video. Just when you think you’re having a sucky day you’re reminded how much suffering people have to do and it makes you stop and think, what was I complaining about.

    The most interesting thing about the Zac Efron photo is its evidence of how viral Ellen’s gone. Regular Ellen watchers tell me she engages virtually every male guest in a discussion of these $20 Official Ellen Show Boxer Briefs featuring “a button fly [and made from] 75% bamboo, 20% cotton, and 5% spaaaaaaaaannndex.” Usually they’re already packin’, and become unpaid live celebrity endorsers as they pull their shirts up/their pants down to expose the “super soft waistband” that screams “ellen ellen ellen ellen ellen ellen ellen”—from the gents of country music group Lady Antebellum to even soccer sex star David Beckham rather than his own contractually obligated Armani briefs. Vamp Robert Pattinson revealed how her name across his highly coveted ass continually popping out on the set of “Breaking Dawn” caused a cease & desist order from producers. One often sees remarks about how gay rights pioneers never imagined this or that, e.g., legalized marriage. But I’m confidant the most unexpected so far has to be a lesbianaire growing even richer from selling straight men underwear.

    Whitney dancing to Madonna, really? Why does the mainstream media (i.e. Madonna herself) have to insert this woman into every tragedy from Michael to Whitney. Disgusting. I have serious doubts about its “truthfulness”. These vultures, including Madonna will do anything that invites more sales, more publicity. Whitney was generally respectful but did not think highly of Madonna.

    Big Ang looks less like Marilyn (who had a wonderfully innocent quality to her in the 7 Year Itch subway-blow photos) and more a haggard drag queen, squatting to take a dump. Your 7 minutes are up, Ang.
