A Decline By Western Civilization: Wentworth Miller Comes Out, Turns Down Russian Invite Comments (0)

Above, a gallery of our latest (and hottest?) team member.

Prison Break star Wentworth Miller has become the latest in a string of celebrities to come out as gay, and to do it in a non-traditional way.

Miller's coming-out came in the form of a letter sending his regrets to a Russian film festival to which he'd been invited. He wrote:

Good for him—he came out, and he did it in a natural and yet political way.

Air Disses @ The GLAAD Media Awards Comments (2)

Cloris-1I'm such a Phyllistine

Saturday was the GLAAD Media Awards in L.A. It's been four days, but keep in mind I had to travel and work in-between!

FreddieI like GLAAD. I support the work it does. I think all of the awareness it raises is invaluable, let alone the training it offers to newly-minted gay heroes and heroines and the hell it gives people and organizations who insist on defaming the LGBT community. There's nothing wrong with throwing a party to have fun and raise money and garner attention, even if the awards being handed out are certainly up for debate. I love Bill Clinton, but I'm not sure he truly deserves an award for his leadership on gay issues. I've never doubted he is pro-gay, but I'm not sure he's actually led with his gut. Not saying he should be tarred and feathered—he's done lots of good—but I am on the fence as to whether GLAAD should be awarding him anything.

All that said, the event was held at the J.W. Marriott, which sounds like someone who would be starring in Kansas City Trucking Co. (1976) or some other pre-condom (as opposed to bareback) classique. The carpet was wide open and there really weren't that many media types on my side of it. Beth-ditto-1Considering the scores of stars I snagged last year in L.A., I thought this was a good omen.

I was next to Autostraddle (I always am; they're cool) and the adorbs (the word suits him) Matthew Rodrigues, an on-camera host for Pop Sugar. I said, "I'm Matthew." He said, "I'm Matthew." I said, "I was Matthew first." He agreed a little too quickly, which instantly gave rise to a boner of contention; I had a hard-on for teasing him about it.

ChazChaz gave one interview on our end of the carpet—to Ms. Damiana Garcia

No matter; it wasn't even a real faux pas as I am clearly old enough to be his dad, which he denied, guessing me at 34. His straight camera guy went lower. At this point I was selling all my shares in Botox since I've never touched the stuff.

Meriting A Response Comments (5)

A truly annoying piece on HuffPo takes it upon itself to apologize for Madonna and GLAAD's "flamboyant" statement against the Boy Scouts. As I wrote on the site and to the author on Twitter, I don't believe activists get anywhere by coddling, wringing our hands and expressing disappointment. I'm offended by the concept of approaching a sworn enemy (as the Scouts' decision-makers are) with an apology and I think the entire GLAAD appearance, while pointed, was really very funny. Madonna's ridiculous get-up tweaked the Scouts and was a great way to mock just how silly their policy really is.

Worse than silly, it's discriminatory, and it's a policy they've had ample opportunity to reconsider in recent decades. Their clear-eyed decision to keep going with it (for now) makes the Boy Scouts absolutely equal to a restricted country club, so they should be mocked and shamed, not the activist-minded Madonna and GLAAD, who are, after all, on the right side of history.

ANYway, I'm sure the author was well-intentioned, but I really think his piece gives aid and succor to an enemy. And until they change their policy, they are an enemy.

As an antidote, check out the cute backstage video above, in which the face of the battle vs. the Scouts—lesbian mom Jennifer Tyrrell—humbly thanks Madonna for "doing that," to which Madonna says, "My pleasure."

Here is Jennifer from the carpet that evening, before her emotional speech from the stage:
