St. Louis Ram Michael Sam and his boyfriend partied in Vegas at the Venetian following the NFL draft, the Las Vegas Sun reports:

Boyfriend Vito Cammisano, who swam competitively for the University of Missouri, joined Sam, a defensive end from the college who was drafted by the St. Louis Rams in the seventh round Saturday and was congratulated by President Obama.

A group of 10, including Sam’s agent and friends, were on hand as Sam was surprised with a presentation from Tao and a shout-out from DJ Vice. Sam spotted Richard Sherman of the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks at a nearby table, and the two athletes chatted for a few minutes.

Sam and Cammisano later headed to the DJ booth, where Vice stopped the music to introduce and congratulate the newly signed pro.

The NY Daily News has more on Cammisano:

Cammisano, a communications major, came out to fellow swimmers in 2011, Mizzou’s student newspaper reported.

“He’s been a pleasant, pleasant boy all his life,” Cammisano’s aunt, Cathy Nigro, said of her nephew.

“I was very proud of them both,” Nigro said of the kiss. “I think the whole family is.”

Nigro said she’s met Sam, liked him very much and called him “a great athlete.”

Cammisano’s Facebook page says he attended Rockhurst High School in Kansas City, Mo., and worked as an assistant in the University of Missouri’s office of disability services. It says he works as an intern at a large radio station operator.


Woman Throws Shoe at Hillary Clinton During Vegas Speech: VIDEO

A woman was arrested on Thursday after throwing a shoe at Hillary Clinton during a speech at a metal recycling convention in Las Vegas. The shoe missed, but Clinton was quick to react after initially thinking the object was a bat.

"Is that somebody throwing something at me? Is that part of Cirque de Soleil? My goodness I didn't know solid waste management was so controversial. Thank goodness she didn’t play softball like I did.”

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports:

The U.S. Secret Service confirmed the protester had sneaked into the convention and wasn’t associated with the group. The convention organizers said she was initially denied access to the ballroom, but later rushed past security.

“The subject was not a ticketed guest and had eluded hotel security to enter the event,” said Secret Service spokesman George Ogilvie.

Secret Service agents noticed the woman and as they and hotel security approached her she threw a shoe. The women then turned around, threw her hands into the air and began marching toward the back of the room. The woman was immediately taken into custody by Secret Service and hotel security, Ogilvie said.

Montecore, the White Tiger that Attacked Roy Horn of ‘Siegfried and Roy’ in 2003, Dies

SiegroyMontecore, the 380-pound white tiger responsible for a near-fatal injury to Roy Horn of Siegfried & Roy in 2003, has died, Las Vegas Review-Journal reports:

The white tiger was 17 and died “after a short illness,” according to a press release. Zoologists say 17 is within the lower-end parameter of a normal life expectancy for a tiger.

Horn, who was left partially paralyzed from the 2003 incident and forced to end his stage career, released a statement yesterday on the tiger’s passing.

“The world has lost one of its most majestic creatures and I have lost a brother. I will forever believe it was his concern for my safety and well-being that caused him to act as he did on that night long ago. We spent many hours together and he never failed to bring me great joy and wonderment. It was my great honor to be beside him at the end. He is now playing with his siblings in White Tiger heaven.”


Chelsea Clinton Calls LGBT Rights the ‘Unfinished Business’ of this Century: VIDEO

In a keynote speech given at a Human Rights Campaign conference over the weekend, Chelsea Clinton remarked on the “incredible progress” of gay rights in this country, while also highlighting the ‘unfinished business’ that must be addressed on the road to full equality. CNN reports:

"My mother has often said that the issue of women is the unfinished business of the 21st century,” she said of Hillary Clinton, the former New York senator and secretary of state. “That is certainly true. But so too are the issues of LGBTQ rights the unfinished business of the 21st century." […]

In her address, Clinton pushed for more progress in combating bullying of gay youths. She pointed to celebrities such as Jason Collins, the NBA veteran who announced that he was gay in a Sports Illustrated story in April, and actress Ellen Page, who came out as gay at the same Las Vegas conference last Friday, as role models changing the lesbian, bisexual, gay, transgender, queer narrative.

"Changing laws and changing the political dialogue while necessary is insufficient to ensure that bullying stops; to ensure that every young person is supported by their parents and their teachers as they question who they are and they discover who they are regardless of the sexuality," Clinton said.
