Towleroad Talking Points: Emmys, Romney's Stand-Up and Iran



A look back at today's big stories


Everyone's favorite TV Stars gathered for the Emmys last night and Chick-fil-A was the butt of a few jokes. As for the awards, Modern Family came away with it's third Outstanding Comedy Emmy and there was a changing of the guard in the drama category as Homeland supplanted Mad Men as this year's Emmy darling. The freshman show also grabbed awards for Lead Actor and Lead Actress. Jullianne Moore and Game Change were the big winners in the TV Movie/mini-series category. 



The Romney/Ryan campaign may be one that does not seem that friendly toward the LGBT community. However, Paul Ryan's view on the idea of a reversal of DADT would seem to go against their anti-gay vibe.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is in the United States for the UN General Assembly and sat down with CNN's Piers Morgan. Yes, Ahmadinejad still hates gays

And Brian Brown, President of the anti-gay National Organization for Marriage (NOM), is very confident that the Supreme Court will not hear the Prop 8 case.



Unfortunately it seems that anti-gay wingnuts may be close to accomplishing a victory in Minnesota, where a ban on gay marriage is currently leading a tight race in the polls

  1. Hi Sam,
    Will you ask Andrew Belonsky, president of Towleroad, why he took down the post on the party being hosted by Ken Melman to raise funds for LGBT causes.
    It was being subscribed to by a great number of posters. Why the censorship ?
    Did Mr. Belonsky have a conflict of interest ?
    Was he leaned-on by high powered friends ?
    Has he forgotten journalistic integrity as he was taught in all those writing courses he attended ?
    The thread on Mr Ken Melman was taken down without explanation.......a lot of us had comments we wanted to make.
    Has Towleroad become a creature of vested interests ?
    A simple explanation from Mr. Belonsky will do.
    And tell him not to kill the messenger.

  4. yes, well Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is already slated to go down in amongst the obscure loony toons of history. It's only the *how* he goes down part that has yet to be settled. My money is on the Israelis.
