RoadGay and lesbian candidates win elections in Maryland, Missouri, and Wisconsin.

Scifi_kluweRoadChris Kluwe on gay marriage, video games, and his favorite writers: "One book that everyone should read from the science fiction genre is Neuromancer by William Gibson. He wrote it back in, I think 1987 or ’88, and he basically predicted the Internet and kind of the rise of Internet culture and also what he called the sprawl — which is the growing sprawl of suburbia and cities kind of morphing into each other — and it’s a really fascinating read in that he predicts a lot of what we take for granted now."

RoadJon Hamm takes his Hammaconda for a walk.

RoadAdam Lambert narrowly escaped a parking ticket!

RoadGay marriage hasn't won, but its opponents have lost. "It’s a defeat for 'a social norm that holds out opposite-sex marriage as the right and best way to form a family.'"

RoadRoger Ebert says his cancer has returned.

RoadThe Ticket previews the legal maze if DOMA is struck down: "If DOMA is struck down, then same-sex couples residing in states that allow gay marriage will suddenly be included in the more than 1,100 federal laws that give benefits to married couples. Gay couples, for instance, could file jointly on their tax returns, apply for Social Security survivor benefits if their spouse dies, and take up to 12 weeks off to care for a sick family member without fear of losing their job under the Family and Medical Leave Act. But what about a gay couple that get married in New York and then move back to North Carolina, or any other of the 38 states that have explicitly banned gay marriage?"

She arrived in Malawi Monday to tour the 10 school wings she has helped to build."

RoadAuthor of Arizona's anti-trans "bathroom bill" defends it to Michelangelo Signorile: "First of all, the bathroom wasn’t the major issue. The real purpose of my bill was for showers..."

RoadHigh School: Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne put out a new video.

RoadNYT on Ruth Bader Ginsburg's Roe v. Wade remarks during the Prop. 8 arguments: "How Justice Ginsburg will vote on same-sex marriage is unknown. But her comments misread the legal and political landscape at the time of the Roe decision and have been used to bolster the inaccurate notion that the court’s ruling on abortion rights somehow short-circuited a political process that was moving in the states to end criminalization of abortion"

RoadPat Robertson says miracles don't happen in America because people are too educated: "Well, we are so sophisticated, we think we've got everything figured out, we know about evolution, we know about Darwin, we know about all these things that says God isn't real, we know about all this stuff. in many schools, in the most advanced schools, we have been inundated with skepticism and secularism."

RoadDr. Ben Carson cozying up to the virulently anti-gay Illinois Family Institute: "IFI is one of the few state anti-gay groups labeled as a 'hate group' by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) for its extreme views on LGBT people."

  1. Now I actually like a lot of the fashions in that backstage look.

  2. I went to college with Ken Cuccinelli and he used to love getting f---ed in the butt. Strange he's so opposed to it now.

  3. Well, Pat Robertson is correct. When we educate ourselves we learn that things that seem miraculous have a non-supernatural explanation. Anything can be a miracle if you can't explain it.

  4. I am so in love with Kluwe - platonically speaking of course. Not.

  5. Whether the law is on the books technically is of no matter. Such laws were deemed unconstitutional a decade ago. An uneforceable law is no law at all. He's a lawyer and he knows that. He's just being a typical Republican seeking political office. And frankly I'd imagine Virginia has other concerns than who is f***ing who and where.

  6. The Brooklyn subway mugger has been arrested. His name is Aiden Folan,21. Google his name, he's all over the web wearing his unique sweatshirt with the frat name and his nickname. Dumba**. Probably a drug addict.

  9. Everyone I know who is a born-again Christian has unstable mental conditions in their history.
    Some were alcoholics, some were sex addicts, some were drug addicts, some were drug addicts, but I have yet to meet one born again Christian who has a stable personality. Not one.
    I believe that this mental instability also accounts for their being so extreme in their addictions, including their religious zealousness/addiction. They're broken people in every way... not capable of self-assessment and self-knowing, and always seek their compass from outside themselves. I am very happy that I was born with a strong INTERNAL moral compass that makes be very confident in the knowledge that gay relationships are not bad in any way... so long as they are not abusive (same caveat on straight relationships)... and to know that I do not need some 2000 year old book of dubious origin and strange content in order to know whether something is right or wrong.

  10. So if John Hamm comes out publicly and asks people to stop talking about his large "privates" then why would a site like Towleroad continue to post such drek ?

  11. Aiden,the mugger,needs to have his photo posted all over the subway in NYC so that people know what a scumbag really looks like in person. They can see what kind of subhuman resorts to beating up,kicking and stealing from 53 year old women on public transit. Glad he got caught and hope justice makes him pay for his crime.

  12. Someone named "Cooch a Nelly" is for anti-Sodomy laws? Kinda ironic and very santorum-esque.

  13. Jon Hamm "comes out publicly and asks people to stop talking about his large "privates" " and then alerts the paparazzi to the fact he is walking his dog with his gf decked out to the tens, carrying her purse of course, and the "privates" are swinging. Amazing thing he pulls stunts when a new season of his show begins, and last year picked a fight with the Kardashians before that season of the show started.

  14. I'm not doubting that Chris Kluwe paints minis, but as someone with 150 minis in the mail coming in May - I can say that that pose is *so* not what it looks like when a gamer paints =D

  15. This site has an unnatural infatuation with Adam Lambert. Most of the stories about him, such as this one, are complete minutiae.

    Posted by: Michael | Apr 3, 2013 7:10:27 PM

  16. I feel so bad for Ebert. I grew up watching his show and still respect his point of view. Sucks that he has to suffer like this.

    Posted by: daws | Apr 3, 2013 7:32:31 PM

  17. Chris Kluwe loves William Gibson's Neuromancer? AND recommends everyone should read it?? Whoa. Okay, he's actually winning me over even more. Still a bit hesitant. But props for the Gibson comment. I wonder if he's in to China Mieville?

  18. I'm going to assume that Cory Bond and Ellis McCreadie are dating and that Cory is smiling in that photo because he knows what a hot couple they make.

  19. Sorry to nitpick, but: the Times article refers to comments Justice Ginsburg made at Columbia Law School, not at the Prop 8 oral arguments.
