Daniel Radcliffe is Hot and Horny in First Official 'Horns' Trailer: VIDEO


After years of teaser images, the first official trailer for Horns has finally arrived - with the film looking like it has the potential to be a creepily fascinating slasher/romance hybrid.

It also has Daniel Radcliffe shirtless which, you know, is great too. 

Writes Yahoo! Movies UK of the film's plot:

While most people his age are worried about a breakout of pimples, Ig’s problem is a pair of horns that have literally broken out of his forehead. The protrusions, which also grant special powers, appear after his long-time girlfriend Merrin (played by Juno Temple) is brutally murdered and Ig is the prime suspect. 

Watch the trailer and check out the film's posters, AFTER THE JUMP...

Based on the best-selling 2010 book of the same name by Joe Hill (son of Stephen King) Horns is set for theatrical release on October 31.

Gay polish coupleRoad Justin Beiber wishes the paparazzi had "learned from the death of Princess Diana" and stop tailing him on the road. 

Road Gay Polish couple takes matters into their own hands after waiting seven years for a law on civil partnerships for same-sex unions. "'This shows how much a law [on civil partnerships] is needed, because this is not the the first couple to have had a 'wedding,'” said Yga Kostrzewa from the Warsaw-based Lambda Association, which provides support to members of the LGBT community.'

That's why I recently did a couple of gay clubs, and I wanted to do more because that's where I started. I was just literally looking at old pictures a few minutes ago, and I saw a picture of me performing in a gay club and a picture of being dressed. Drag queens used to dress me, and then I would go and perform. That's where I started, so there's definitely a connection there. I wanted to make sure that I reconnected."

New Gallup Poll Looks at the Most and Least Hospitable Regions for Gays Around the World


A new poll by Gallup finds that less than three in 10 adults across 123 countries say where they live is a "good place' for gays to live, with the highest hospitable attitude claims coming from Netherlands (83%), Iceland (82%), and Canada (80%). Nearly all of the countries where residents say their city or area is "not a good place" for gays to live were African nations.  

For the U.S. 70% of respondents said where they live was a good place for gays, 22% said not a good place, and 8% didn't know or refused to answer.  

Gallup reports:

Of the countries where three in four or more residents feel their area is hospitable to gay and lesbian people, all but Canada are in Europe, and all but Ireland (75%) have marriage equality laws. In Ireland, voters will cast their ballots on a referendum in 2015, and the country could join their European neighbors in allowing marriage equality by next year.

By contrast, in many of the countries where the residents are least likely to feel their city or area is a "good place," it is illegal to be openly gay. For example, "an improper or unnatural act with a person of the same sex," as Senegal's anti-gay law dictates, can be punished with up to five years in prison and fines of up to $3,000. Laws that allow for the imprisonment of gay and lesbian people are also on the books in Pakistan -- where 1% say their area is a good place for gay people to live -- Uganda (2%), Ethiopia (2%), and Afghanistan (2%).

The global average and ranking did not include data from more than a dozen countries such as Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, and Egypt because the question "Is the city or area where you live a good place or not a good place to live for gay or lesbian people?" was itself too sensitive to ask.

Anti-gay Nut Linda Harvey Attacks Target for 'Pushing Deviance and Perversion Into Everyone's Lives' - AUDIO

On her radio program yesterday, Linda Harvey weighed in on the National Organization for Marriage's ongoing boycott of Target over the retail giant's support for LGBT equality, or as Harvey likes to call it, Target's efforts to push "deviance and perversion into everyone's lives in America."

HarveyIn particular, Harvey objected to Target's pro-marriage equality court brief with the 7th Circuit, which she claimed used "extrememly charged language" by characterizing same-sex marriage bans as "bans" and "discrimination."

Said Harvey:

“Have you noticed how this is how headlines often read these days? They talk about laws on natural marriage as being ‘bans’ on same-sex so-called marriage. And that’s incorrect because people who are male can still marry people who are female. The only obstacle for a few people is the presence of unnatural desires. Those desires can change with a different mind and heart.” 

Isn't that the same line of 'reasoning' behind the bans on interracial marriage in the 20th century? That blacks and whites could marry...just as long as they married someone of the same race?

California Man Sues Little Caesars for Denying Health Benefits to Husband

A former Little Caesars employee has filed a lawsuit accusing the Detroit-based pizza chain of denying employees health insurance benefits for legally married same-sex couples, Reuters reports

Caesars-logoThe lawsuit was brought in state Superior Court in Orange County, regional headquarters for the nation's third-largest pizza chain, by Frank Bernard, 47, who said he quit his job after Little Caesars refused to extend coverage to his husband of six years.

"I didn't want anything special, I just wanted the same benefits package as heterosexual couples," Bernard said at a news conference in Los Angeles.

The lawsuit names Little Caesars Enterprises and its parent company, Ilitch Holdings, as defendants, accusing them of discriminating against Bernard on the basis of his sexual orientation, in violation of California law.

It cites a letter Little Caesars presented Bernard explaining a benefits policy that defined "spouse" as "the one person to whom you are legally married under the laws of the state in which you reside, including common law spouse, and who is the opposite gender from you."

Same-sex marriage remains illegal in Michigan, although the voter-approved ban is currently awaiting ruling by the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals. The state also has no protection against discrimination in the workplace for LGBT individuals. 

Gloria Allred is representing Bernard.
