Human Rights Watch Documents Abuse Of Gays In Jamaica: VIDEO

Gareth Henry Jamaican LGBT activist

Jamaica is a remarkably homophobic nation with massive opposition to the "gay agenda" that forces gay youth to live in sewers, and even results in murder. The Human Rights Watch has taken notice of the hostilities and violence and put together a short documentary video that explores the island's abuses of and utter governmental apathy towards its gay citizens.

While not graphic or explicit, the video is a little rough emotionally. You can watch it AFTER THE JUMP...

Lady Gaga Invites Fan to Propose to His Boyfriend Onstage: VIDEO

Lady Gaga Jay and Shaun proposal

Love her or hate her, Lady Gaga has been an extremely vocal supporter of the LGBT community from virtually day one, so much so that she's even pissed off the Russian government with her support. (Yes, Madonna has done so, too. She is also awesome.) Last Tuesday in Manchester she continued her trend of support by hosting a gay marriage proposal on-stage during her concert. After getting her heel un-stuck from her latex outfit, she called her friend Jay up on stage and telling Jay's boyfriend Shaun that he might have a question for him. And then the crowd went berserk.

Indian Talk Show Hosts LGBT Guests, Inspires Millions to Take Action Against Anti-gay Laws: VIDEO

Gazal Dhaliwal

It's not often that a video can incite a major shift in collective cultural opinion, but India's "Satyamev Jayate" nighttime talk show managed to achieve just that. Indian actor and GLAAD Global Voices advocate Aamir Khan hosted the show and had guests covering a variety of the LGBT spectrum, including Deepak Kashyap who once considered suicide, and transgender woman Gazal Dhaliwal and her parents.

Supporting the guests were psychoanalysts who stressed the importance of parental support during the coming out process, a doctor who confirmed that homosexuality is not a disease and therefore not "curable", and a lawyer who went into the details of how India's anti-gay laws came to be.

As a result of all of this, 1.7 MILLION people called into the show to protest India's anti-gay laws and the Twitter hashtag #FreedomForLGBT became the top post on Twitter globally.

Tyrese Gibson Is Not Amused By Rumors Of Gay Sexual Favors Sparked By Comedian Spanky Hayes: VIDEO

Gibson2

Comedian Spanky Hayes (below right) appeared on TMZ recently spouting some rumors about Tyrese Gibson (above) and how he beat Spanky out for a role in 2001's Baby Boy. Suffice to say that male-on-male sexual contact was involved. Though it is Hayes' profession to make people laugh, probably utilizing outlandish claims to achieve those ends, Gibson was highly unamused and fired back in a big way. 

HayesMirror reports:

Spanky, known for his appearance on the Nick Cannon show Wild 'N Out, claims he was beaten out of the role by Tyrese after auditioning for John [Singleton], who allegedly told them: "I f***ing love both of you guys, but which one of you guys are gonna suck my c***?'"

It is not yet known if he said it in jest, but he added: "I bust out laughing because nobody has talked to me like that. But the other dude, who I won't say his name, wasn't laughing. To keep it real, he got the lead role in Baby Boy."

Gibson recorded his own video, saying that Hayes' statement is akin to committing "a career suicide." Then he does some truth telling about the role:

"Let me tell you something you don't know. First of all, the role for Baby Boy was written, directed and produced by John Singleton. It was written for Tupac. That's a factual fact.

"When Tupac was killed, he only had one person in mind to play Baby Boy, it wasn't them, it wasn't you ... f**k, it was me."

He goes on to claim he's "never had those sorts of rumors" launched at him, all the while smoking a cigar, wearing a fur coat, and laughing at Spanky's relative lack of success. Seems like an overreaction, no? If nothing else it indicates that Gibson may lack any sense of humor.

Ellen Predicts World Series With Hot Male Dancers: VIDEO

Ellen Hunk-a-thon

Well this is an entertaining bit of prognostication. On her show Monday, Ellen announced her "super-scientific way" to determine the winner of the World Series between the San Francisco Giants and the Kansas City Royals: a "hunk-a-thon" between two shirtless studs, one in a Giants cap the other in a Royals. She set 'em loose on the audience, and whichever dancer came back with the most money in his shorts will be the winner of the World Series. The money, incidentally, was donated to fund cancer research.

So which team will be the winners? Watch and find out AFTER THE JUMP...

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) Explains Why Same-Sex 'Massages' Make Gays Unfit for Military Service - VIDEO

Gohmert

Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas, who has found ways to oppose gun control because...same-sex marriage (?), was quite vocal recently about Don't Ask, Don't Tell. Of course he opposed the repeal of the discriminatory policy, but who knew his reasoning could be this far-fetched.

When the ancient Greeks and man-on-man massages play into your law-making, you can't exactly claim you "know your history," as Gohmert does. 

Right Wing Watch reports on his statement:

"I've had people say, 'Hey, you know, there's nothing wrong with gays in the military. Look at the Greeks,'" he said. "Well, you know, they did have people come along who they loved that was the same sex and would give them massages before they went into battle. But you know what, it's a different kind of fighting, it's a different kind of war and if you're sitting around getting massages all day ready to go into a big, planned battle, then you're not going to last very long. It's guerrilla fighting. You are going to be ultimately vulnerable to terrorism and if that's what you start doing in the military like the Greeks did ... as people have said, 'Louie, you have got to understand, you don't even know your history.' Oh yes I do. I know exactly. It's not a good idea." 

Right, because gay servicemembers, given the chance to enter combat, will resort to the ancient Greek philosophy: massages before fighting, what could go wrong?

Someone please keep history from repeating itself and do not reelect Gohmert.
