Lea Michele Loves You, Gays Comments (0)

Lea Michele spoke with the incomparable gay reporter Chris Azzopardi, telling him she Lea-Michelecherishes the gay people in her life.

From their PrideSource chat:

LM: Growing up on Broadway there was always this sense of being who you are - you just have to be true to yourself and be who you are, and I saw it. I saw people living their true lives and being their true selves, and for me that was such an incredible vibe to be around growing up. It really did develop me, and you have to really have a strong backbone and you have to have strength - and it comes with a lot of difficulties - and it was such an incredible way to grow up. Honestly, I wouldn't change it for the world.

But she does not love it when gay people ask about her messy relationships with former co-stars:

PS: Apparently, you and your co-star Naya Rivera were feuding on the show, according to her memoir. Do you have trouble watching episodes with you two in them?

LM: [Laughs] Actually, I think we should — I don't like to talk about that. There are so many more fun things to talk about.

Too bad you can't see this guy's Ever-Lasting Gobstopper — couldn't find a host for the video that was okay with peen. But watching him strip to a Willy Wonka tune had the same effect as a Fizzy Lifting Drink.

This happened at Amanda Lepore's party for the release of her book Doll Parts.

He's Not Your B*tch, Please Hang His Sh*t! Comments (0)

Daniel_arzola_main_image(Images by Daniel Arzola)

Via Gay Star News: I love the work of Venezuelan artist Daniel Arzola, who left his home country in fear of his life.

His creations are simple, joyous and rainbow-bright. They also contain written messages, Daniel_arzola_2which is a passion of mine in art — I'm a Barbara Kruger whore, and used to include written words in my own work back when I was an artist.

He chalks up some of his success to none other than Madonna, who noticed an image from his I'm Not a Joke series and Instagrammed it. As reported by Gay Star News:

To his shock, in October 2013, Madonna saw one of the images and tweeted about it, saying ‘this art is no joke i love this @Arzola_d.’

That one Tweet changed Arzola’s life. In the course of just a few days, he received media inquiries from all over the world and dozens of requests for interviews.

However, that spotlight bought him to the attention of Venezuelan authorities. He says he began to receive threats. Mindful of his previous experiences, Arzola decided he had to leave.

‘I always say Madonna changed my life. When she shared my work on Twitter, people started asking for interviews with me. One of them was RNW (Radio Netherlands Worldwide) in Amsterdam – and they helped me get out of Venezuela and go to the Netherlands.’

I love his work. His work is love.
