GLAAD's Sarah Kate Ellis On Pulse Shooting: ACCEPTANCE MUST PREVAIL Comments (0)

GLAAD's President & CEO Sarah Kate Ellis responds to rampant speculation about Orlando shooter Omar Mateen's sexual orientation:

Forty-nine innocent people were brutally massacred in an LGBT space—this we know for certain. This atrocity was an attack on the LGBT community, it was an attack on our country, and it was an attack on the core American values of equality and freedom for everyone. Whether the gunman’s homophobia spurred from hatred of others or hatred of himself, this is homophobia all the same. And it’s sadly just the latest example of homophobia turning to horrific violence, just as it has for decades.
 
This hatred for the LGBT community is something that the gunman learned right here at home, not outside our borders. This is the same hatred that led to the murders of over a dozen transgender Americans this year, most of them women of color. This is the same hatred that’s been espoused by American lawmakers who have proposed over 100 anti-LGBT bills this year. And this is the same hatred that we all must come together to end once and for all. Acceptance must prevail.

Walking Billboard: Demi Lovato Wants To Get Her Pro-Trans Feelings Off Her Chest! Comments (0)

Calling her a music megastar, GLAAD trumpeted the fact that Demi Lovato wore a T-shirt with an inclusive bathroom symbol on it in protest of North Carolina's abhorrent HB2 law.

GLAAD's President & CEO Sarah Kate Ellis said in a statement: 

Demi Lovato continues to be a fearless ally for LGBT equality and acceptance. By wearing her support for the transgender community, Lovato is raising critical visibility for vulnerable LGBT North Carolinians and sending an invaluable message of support to transgender people everywhere.

Lovato will be selling the shirt on her upcoming Honda Civic: Future Now tour, with proceeds going to LGBT orbs in North Carolina.

In April, Lovato and tourmate Nick Jonas nixed a North Carolina appearance over HB2.

Via ExtraTV.com: Jennifer Lawrence riffed through her speech introducing Robert De Niro, recipient of an Excellence in Media Award from GLAAD Saturday night, joking about her inability to read from the teleprompter, about De Niro not being gay (and then being gay) and more.

De Niro (his timing off) joined in once he took the stage. Looks and sounds like they were having a lotta fun up there.

Star-Packed GLAAD Awards: Taylor Swift! Demi Lovato! Nick Jonas! Caitlyn Jenner! Plus, Lilly Wachowski's Debut Comments (0)

The 27th Annual GLAAD Media Awards were held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in L.A. last night, attracting top names—including some of the biggest millennial stars.

Taylor Swift was a surprise presenter, handing the Stephen F. Kolzak Award to Orange Is the New Black babe Ruby Rose. The award is given to out LGBT people in who have fought homophobia in the public sphere. Check out the list of distinguished honorees since 1991.

Demi Lovato won the Vanguard Award, which has also gone to many household names, ever since 1993. The award was presented to her by tour mate and former Camp Rock co-star Nick Jonas, to which Demi said, “What people don't know about me is—I know that you all love Nick Jonas, but I actually have a bigger dick than he does. And a huge set of balls.”

I guess Demi is becoming the new Elizabeth Taylor.

I know a lot of us are sick of Caitlyn Jenner, especially due to her political wrongheadedness, but check out her tender speech upon winning Outstanding Reality Program (tying with I Am Jazz) for I Am Cait.

Perhaps the biggest entertainment news story of the evening was the first public appearance of Lilly, formerly Andy, Wachowski, of The Matrix fame. Looking lovely in a floor-length gown, she announced the new her with a simple, “Ta-da!”

Wachowski spoke eloquently (and with dark humor) about her serendipitous coming-out “with the help of the fabulous people at GLAAD, Nick Adams, as well as the extremely sensitive and courteous people at the Daily Mail—thanks, guys!”

A one-hour special devoted to the awards will air on Logo on Monday, April 4, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. That's tomorrow, guys.
