RoadCongrats to Hunk du Jour on its 10th anniversary!

Adele_brownRoadAdele: I was complimenting Chris Brown, not telling him off.

RoadCheyenne Jackson joins Amazon pilot The Onion Presents: The News: "The project, from The Onion’s Will Graham & Dan Mirk, is described as a fast-paced scripted comedy set behind the scenes of The Onion News Network that shows just how far journalists will go to stay at the top of their game. Jackson will play Cameron, a rising younger anchor who threatens the rein of veteran anchor David Everett (Jeffrey Tambor)."

RoadPodcast: A gay Israeli and a gay Palestinian fall in love. "A year ago, two 29-year-olds met on an online dating site. One is from Jerusalem, the other from a West Bank village. Reporter Daniel Estrin brings us their story, courtesy of the radio production house Bending Borders."

RoadIs FOX's The Following changing how we view bisexual relationships?

RoadArgo hits $200 million at the box office.

AmellRoadLook who got picked up.

RoadChris Joseph wants LeBron James to fight against homophobia: "LeBron, you are, quite simply, the best basketball player in the Universe. And, after proving the naysayers and haters wrong last year by winning your first title and by refusing to unclench your thunder-god-like grip on the MVP award again this year, your standing up for the gay and lesbian community in sports -- particularly young athletes too scared to come out of the closet because of the antigay culture sports breeds -- would make tsunami waves across the stratosphere."

RoadWhy Marco Rubio could not vote for the Violence Against Women Act.

RoadA growing number of colleges and universities are offering students health insurance plans with coverage for gender reassignment surgery: "No college or university offered such treatment just six years ago, but when Brown University said last week that its student health plan would be extended to cover sex-change surgery beginning in August, advocates for transgender students said Brown would become the 36th college to do so."

RoadJames Franco has no gag reflex. “Guess I’m a natural…It was my first time.”

CummingRoadAlan Cumming wants a gay pope. "If I was going to rebrand the Catholic Church, as much as I despise what it stands for, I would say get a black person — well, first I would say get a woman or a gay — but then I'd say get a black person or a Hispanic person."

RoadU.S. State Department now giving out travel information for LGBT people.

RoadMichelangelo Signorile says the next Pope won't be very huggable: "Whoever is chosen, however, you better believe the cardinals will make sure it's someone who is likable and doesn't carry Benedict's baggage while still enforcing Benedict's doctrine. In that way, the new pope will be more insidiously homophobic, and that is always more dangerous and anti-gay."

RoadGay workers find workplaces more welcoming: "In some ways, corporations have made more impressive strides in relation to LGBT equality and acceptance than have federal and state governments. Ninety-four percent of Fortune 100 companies have non-discrimination policies that include sexual orientation, and 69 percent prevent discrimination against transgender employees, as well."

  1. Well, now we know why Scott Brown is not running for the Senate -- the pay's better at Fox.

  3. Alan Cumming needs to be very careful what he wishes for, lest we end up with a bigot the likes of Anglican Archbishop Peter Akinola as our "holy father."

  4. Again, Towleroad editors -- thanks for the hot piece of art but you give us no way to know what it goes with (unless we happen to already know what it goes with). This would not be hard to do. Thanks!

  5. Yes Alan, let's get a gay or woman first, then the coloreds. Of course, never in a million years would Cummings think the "gay" would be something other than white. Never crossed his small little mind.

  6. Still got a thing for Scott Brown? I guess his going to Fox makes him more desirable.

  7. I hope they chose Salvatore Cordilone the new seriously homophobic Bishop of San Francisco. He's a perfect fit...Very closeted,Part of a secretly close group who orchestrated Proposition 8 in California and also is godfather to Brian Brown's Child. Get him to the Vatican now. He's such a mess.

  8. Maybe the media (and blogs) should stop making up stories about Chris Brown. Oh wait, they love the page views he brings. And no I'm not a CB fan

  9. That photo certainly doesn't look like Adele is complimenting Chris. I think she's just trying to take the high road.

    As far as getting a gay Pope, naturally the odds are quite good indeed, but a gay-friendly one? No.
