Lance Bass, Green Day, Cat Cora to Host Gay Prom in Mississippi

Lance Bass, Green Day, Cat Cora, and are coming together with the American Humanist Association to throw a prom in Mississippi open to everyone but geared toward LGBT youth in response to Itawamba School District's refusal to throw a prom because Constance McMillen wanted to bring a lesbian date.

Writes the AHABass : "The Mississippi Safe Schools Coalition's second annual Second Chance Prom will be held on May 8, 2010 in Downtown Tupelo, Mississippi. "We've very pleased to be able to support and promote LGBT equality alongside other sponsors," said Roy Speckhardt, executive director of the American Humanist Association. "We're proud to be standing on the side of love and acceptance instead of fear and prejudice, and we hope that the event will bring appreciation of the diversity within our society and encourage others to embrace it as a positive value that can continue to forge progress for all Americans." The Second Chance Prom will feature dinner for guests, live entertainment, a ceremony to honor outstanding youth in Mississippi, booths highlighting organizations striving for LGBT equality and celebrity guests...Todd and Diana Stiefel made a $20,000 grant available to the AHA for the purpose of sponsoring this prom in Itawamba County. Humanists and other freethinkers have expressed a great interest in countering the discrimination of the Itawamba County school board."

There are people who really get into porn and then lash out against guys who do the films. I guess they don’t feel entitled to enjoy that sexual part of themselves. I will say, however, that there are plenty of people who are more than able to look beyond that part of my career to see what else I have to offer."

Iron Chef Cat Cora and Partner Both Pregnant with the Other's Baby

Iron Chef Cat Cora (left) and her partner Jennifer Cora are both pregnant, according to an excerpt from OK! magazine Cat posted to her MySpace blog:

Catcora "Iron Chef's Cat Cora has a bigger surprise than the unveiling of her secret ingredient on her hit Food Network show; She's expecting her third--and fourth--sons! 'It's really crazy!' the chef, 41, tells OK! Most unusual, Cat will give birth three months after her partner, Jennifer Cora, 37. 'We decided that having them a year apart is harder than having kids as infants together,' Cat says of their planned pregnancies. Their four children have the same sperm donor but Cat says,  '[Jennifer] carried my embryo and I carried hers. It's like surrogating, but obviously all of our kids are equal.'
