Towleroad Talking Points: Happy Valentine’s Day!



A look back at today's top stories


What with it being Valentines Day and all we have a couple of romantic stories to help you enjoy your February 14th. First of all you MUST check out our list of the 14 most adorable gay wedding videos! And if you think we've missed some, let us know. Home decor company John Saint-Denis has a new ad out in honor of St. Valentine that will make your heart all aflutter. The web series "My Gay Roommate" has a Valentines Day themed episode out that gives hope to all those straight boys who don't have a girl to love today. Get yourself ready to shed a few tears over the heartwarming love story of Audrey and Gail, who just got married after 12 years together.

And Illinois may be giving its residents the best Valentines Day present of all as the Senate has passed a marriage equality bill! We will now await a vote from that state's House. 



Rachel Maddow laid into Marco Rubio last night, not just for his cotton mouth but also for the content of his State of the Union rebuttal. By the way, Jon Stewart is also not too pleased with the state of our union. James Franco swung by Jimmy Kimmel last night and showed off some of the art in his show called "gay town", which apparently needs no explanation. 


Justin Timberlake has released the video to accompany his "Suit and Tie". Check out the David Fincher directed piece here. For the first time in 25 years Johnny Marr, guitarist from The Smiths, is recorded playing "Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now". And bad news for Lady Gaga who has had to end her tour due to hip surgery



Wrestling is no longer in the Olympics and one Russian coach believes that the incredibly homoerotic sport got the axe because of the gays. Also the HRC reminds us that while gays are not allowed in the Boy Scouts, criminals are more than welcome!



So God made the gay man. And we are sure lucky he did because otherwise Valentines Day would be really boring!
