Gay-Targeted Mass Shooting In Orlando Linked To Radical Islam Comments (0)

UPDATE: NBC News is reporting that Mateen called 911 moments before he began shooting in order to pledge allegiance to the leader of ISIS.

Evidence is mounting that Omar Mateen, the 29-year-old Port St. Lucie, Florida, resident and security guard—and American-born U.S. citizen—either had ties to the Islamic State or at the very least was a lone wolf who had sworn allegiance to it. If nothing else, it is clear he was radicalized; the government was aware of him as a threat, but was not aware he was planning any attacks.

From Daily Beast:

The attack is being investigated as an act of domestic terrorism. Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said on CNN that, according to Homeland Security and local law enforcement officials, Mateen “made a pledge of allegiance” to ISIS and had been “heard praying in a foreign language.” It is unclear if Mateen was praying during the shooting, Schiff said.

Mateen's father is claiming the shooting had “nothing to do with religion” and everything to do with Mateen's homophobic response to seeing two men kiss recently, but his explanation is either a bald-faced lie or yet another example of the close friends and family members of radicalized terrorists and even just nut jobs having no idea what their loved ones were really up to. 

Florida's useless Gov. Rick Scott, an anti-gay Republican, has declared a state of emergency in the area of the shooting (Orange County) and has briefed the press—but has not talked about the fact that LGBT people were the targets.

As the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history, this event will undoubtedly spawn countless tragic stories in the days and weeks to come. I was struck with dread by this anecdote from Daily Beast:

Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer told CNN that the death toll jumped from 20 to 50 as additional victims were found inside the club. Personnel could not go in immediately as there were suspected explosives. According to Dyer, there were five to eight hostages in one room with the shooter and another 15-20 in a separate room at the time when police entered. 

Mina Justice’s son Eddie was inside the club and texted her when the gunshots erupted, the Associated Press reports. Justice told his mom he and others ran into the bathroom to hide.

“He’s coming,” Justice texted, adding later: “He has us, and he’s in here with us.”

“That was the last conversation,” his mother said.

In other news, an instantly notorious tweet from Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick of Texas, an avowed anti-gay crusader, was apparently scheduled to be posted well in advance of the shootings, so was not intended to blame the victims' sexual orientations for their murder.

Politicians and celebrities react to the mass murder here.

Sam Smith Responds To Dustin Lance Black's Twitter Fit With Maturity, Ian McKellen Chimes In Comments (0)

I can't put into words how I feel other than... Hungover and Insanely happy x

Looks like Sam Smith, 23, has more maturity and grace than Dustin Lance Black, self-described “Oscar Owner,” 41: He has responded to Black's unseemly objections to Smith's speech with an apology and a clarification:

Also of note, Ian McKellen (the source of Smith's impression about gay men winning Oscars), chimed in with this equally classy and gracious tweet:

Dustin Lance Black Gets Bitchy Over Sam Smith's Oscar Gaffe Comments (0)


UPDATE: As if Black's tweet was not already incredibly petty and defensive, he has taken the battle to TMZ. Classy. He's hiding behind moral outrage over Smith not knowing his LGBT history, but the tweet's tone and the inclusion of Tom Daley speaks volumes.


Sam Smith stepped in it when he timidly said he thought he may be the first openly gay man to win an Oscar (he was mistaken—many have won Oscars, none have won acting Oscars), but the backlash he's received is ridiculous.

Correct the young man, don't burn him at the stake. The content of his speech was about inclusion and about being out.

I'm particular disappointed in Dustin Lance Black's bitchy tweet. Apparently miffed to have been overlooked by Smith, he got personal, suggesting that Smith has been inappropriately texting Black's fiancé, Tom Daley.

Really beneath him.


SECOND UPDATE: Now Dustin Lance Black wants to be sure you view him as a brave gay man who paved the way for us:

The Marrying Men: Dustin Lance Black & Tom Daley Tell All To OUT Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-01-05 at 12.22.19 PMThe couple bonded over past trials and tribulations.

Harry Borden shoots fiancés Dustin Lance Black and Tom Daley for Out, in a series of images showing Unnamed their cuddly, romantic side.

In the feature, Black talks about the first time he met Daley, when the diver was 18:

First off, let me be honest: When Tom walked in I was, like, Oh my God, he’s so cute. I knew who he was — I’d watched the Olympics — but in person I found him more mature and confident than I had expected. He came in with this gaggle of beautiful women so I had no idea what his sexuality was. In fact, he seemed all loved up on this beautiful blonde, so I thought, Well, there you go. But occasionally I would look over to my right and I would catch Tom looking at me — that split second when someone is looking at you before they realize they’ve been caught and look away. And I thought, That’s not straight.

But cruising turned to love pretty quickly:

He texted me the next morning, and then I texted him after dinner that night to see what he was up to. He said, “Oh, I’m having a party at my house, if you’d like to come.” I replied that I had work the next day, but there was a bar at the hotel if he wanted to come over. And long story short, he came over, and we literally spent three or four hours talking about the crap that we’d been through. His brother had only just passed away, and my dad had died in 2011, and we talked about his mum and her struggles with her illnesses — sadly, she’s no longer with us — and we just really connected. It was one of the first times that I felt, Oh my God, this isn’t just a thing where I am attracted to someone. This is someone that I’ve connected with on a whole new level. It was new for me, and that was when I thought, Shit, I’m in trouble here.
