Former NFL Star Hines Ward on Gay Athletes: 'If You Can Help Me Win A Super Bowl, I'm All Up For It' - VIDEO

Hines Ward

Appearing as a guest on Meredith Vieira's talk show, former NFL wide receiver Hines Ward fielded a question on professional sports dealing with Michael Sam and gay athletes in general.

Said Ward in part:

"If you can help me win a Super Bowl, then I'm all up for it, 'cause that's what it all matters to me."

Speaking about locker room shenanigans, Ward pointed out he's recieved his fair share of teasing as a biracial person:

"I get teased all the time, you've got to have thick skin...It's just their ignorance about not knowing what a biracial person is all about, or what a gay person is all about."

A Bite-Sized Science Lesson that Asks 'How Small Is An Atom?' - WATCH


How small is an atom? Very, very small. 500,000 stacked end-to-end would cross the diameter of a single human hair. So small that if all of the "empty space" that comprises over 99% of an atom's volume were removed, the collective atoms of humanity would fit in a teaspoon.

Sir Patrick Stewart 'Flattered' To Be Misidentified As Gay, Says Being an Ally Is 'Natural' - VIDEO

Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen

In a lengthy interview with The Advocate Sir Patrick Stewart speaks about his upcoming film Match, including a few discussions about sex that film's material bring up, such as his character Tobi expressing his love for going down on a woman and the fact that Tobi is bi. Naturally, this segued into Stewart's eternal support of the LGBT community, which he claimed felt "natural":

When I look back to my early career and early experience, my ease and comfort being in the company of and intimately close with gay and lesbian colleagues and friends was always, for me, the most natural, and I might even say at times appealing aspects of the life I was living.

I think this is where the theater is such an appealing world, because it embraces everything and always has. So there was never a moment where I made an intellectual choice that I would be a supporter of gay civil rights. It was always a natural and uncomplicated choice. Then later in life, as I got to know well-known activists like Ian McKellen, I was only too happy to join campaigns, march, and support in whatever way I could because it always seemed to me to be something that much too much fuss was being made about.

And when he was misidentified as a gay man last year by The Guardian when he expressed his support for Ellen Page on coming out, he was hardly offended:

Quite frankly, I was utterly flattered by that assumption.

Match is about Tobi, a master dancer who is interviewed by graduate student Lisa (Carla Gugino) and her husband, Mike (Matthew Lillard) about the days of his career, and the sacrifices that were required for the life he led. You can watch the trailer AFTER THE JUMP...

Irish Students Union Launches 'Vote For Love' Marriage Equality Campaign: VIDEO

USI vote for love

With a referendum on same-sex marriage due in May, the Union of Students in Ireland (USI) yesterday launched a campaign for a “yes” vote.

The USI has had a unanimous mandate to campaign for marriage equality since 2012.

Reland gay marriage pollThe student group’s Vote For Love campaign notes that over 90% of students are in favor of marriage equality - compared with 79% of the Irish population as a whole.

It also points out that there are 169 points of difference between civil marriage and Ireland’s civil partnership legislation.

USI President, Laura Harmon, said:

“Students have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to make Ireland more equal in the upcoming referendum on marriage equality.

"It is clear that students want to live in a more inclusive and egalitarian society. Access to marriage equality is a crucial part of this. USI has registered over 20,000 students to vote, and we plan to add to this number over the coming months. We know students are excited by the referendum and anxious to have their voices heard on the issue of marriage equality in Ireland.”

6a00d8341c730253ef01bb07d2bbfc970d-200wiHowever, the USI also warns that a vote for marriage equality is not “just going to happen” and recommends that students register to vote and campaign for a yes vote.

The Irish government - including Prime Minister Enda Kenny (right) supports the referendum but has recently voiced concerns over complacency amongst voters.

As expected, the Catholic Church in Ireland has thus far been particularly vocal in its opposition to equality.

Earlier this week, Colin Farrell spoke on prime time Irish TV about his passionate support for same-sex marriage. On Sunday, Ireland's health minister Leo Varadkar came out as gay.
