NOM Chair to Testify Before House Panel Over Alleged IRS Leak

Last month Towleroad reported that NOM's Brian Brown was demanding an investigation over a 990-B tax form it claims was leaked by the IRS to the Human Rights Campaign, following uproar over reports that the IRS targeted conservative groups.

EastmanThe Hill reports that six groups have been "scheduled to give first-person accounts of the IRS’s targeting of conservative organizations" before the House Ways and Means Committee tomorrow:

John Eastman, the president of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) – a prominent group opposing same-sex marriage – is among those scheduled to appear, after NOM announced plans last month to sue the IRS.

...Four of the other groups that have representatives scheduled to testify – the Laurens County Tea Party, the Wetumpka Tea Party, the San Fernando Valley Patriots and the Linchpins of Liberty – are all among the roughly 25 groups taking part in a lawsuit against the IRS filed by the American Center for Law and Justice.

A 13-Minute 'Man of Steel' Featurette: VIDEO


Man of Steel, the much-anticipated Henry Cavill - Zach Snyder Superman flick that seems to have been coming out for five years now, gets a chunky 13-minute featurette containing interviews with all the players, some new footage, and more of Cavill in that skin-tight, outer-underwearless (explained in the clip) suit.


The film's trailers are here and here.

The Documentary Sea World Doesn't Want You to See: VIDEO


Gabriela Cowperthwaite's documentary Blackfish follows Tilikum, the orca responsible for three deaths while in captivity, including the 2010 death of Dawn Brancheau, a 40-year-old trainer at SeaWorld, which made headlines around the world. It looks devastating to an entertainment industry bent on putting these creatures in tiny pools, and should be.

The documentary premiered at Sundance and is due for theatrical release next month.

Towleroad Talking Points: Lauper, Miley and Hibbert

PHOTO OF THE DAY: Officers pay honor on a K-9 dog's last walk.  


A look back at today's top stories


A day after being ridiculed for his thoughtless remarks following the his team's Game 6 win, Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert has has been fined by the NBA for using the phrase "no homo" during his post-game press conference. Openly gay soccer player Robbie Rogers sat down with CBS This Morning to talk about his coming out and the future of gay men in professional sports. Outspoken gay rights activist and Oakland Raiders punter Chris Kluwe is unable to attend the pride festivities at the White House this year but his email response is pretty entertaining

Today is the opening day in the long delayed trial of Wikileaks soldier Bradley Manning, and following a surge of anti-gay attacks in the city, New York City officials are offering self-defense classes for members of the LGBT community




It's the 30th Anniversary of Cyndi Lauper's megahit "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" and the cast and crew of Lauper's Kinky Boots got some of the singer's friends to help her celebrate. Miley Cyrus's new single is described as a "minimalist R&B party anthem", I don't really know what that is supposed to mean but listen to it here. The Pet Shop Boys also have a new single out and Will Hopkins is looking to break some ground for gays in the country music scene



There was another grisly anti-gay attack over the weekend, this time in Hollywood where a gay and trans man was brutally assaulted. It didn't take long for the sad ladies over at One Million Moms to get all flustered about the new superhero SheZow. Also a disgusting Facebook game in which the user gets to attack gay activists has hit the interwebs. 



Bill Maher has already lined up the next big civil rights issue after gay marriage and it's weed. Also Russian tennis player Mikail Youzhny gave hope to all frustrated club tennis players when he completely melted down at the French Open today.
