Barry Manilow secretly married his longtime partner and manager last year, National Enquirer and People have confirmed. Manilow—who, as a reminder, is NOT openly gay professionally—has not commented on the story.

So my question is, as always: I wonder why certain figures are outed by the media while others are not? Speculation is withheld on figures who the media determines still have relatively new or current careers, it would seem.

But if you're against outing, aren't you doing just that if you post a congrats note on social media?

I find it so odd for him to never have just confirmed he's gay and moved on.

D&G

Billionaire ex-couple and current business partners Dolce & Gabbana have continued to spew their truly backwards opinions on gay issues. I've said before: Gay people are so demanding that straight female divas work on behalf of our cause, yet look at these buffoons, raking in money and having the temerity to dismiss gay parents and marriage equality. Of course the right to marry does not affect the rich. So disappointing. Reminiscent of when Elton John used to be against gay marriage (in favor of civil unions). The parenting stuff is just medieval church talk.

They're simply wrong.

A Gay Proposition: Popping The Question Comments (0)

IMG_2513 copyNo ring on this finger!

You’d think that Valentine’s Day would be the ultimate day for a proposal, when couples present each other with gifts, and singletons receive cards from mystery admirers. So it comes as a bit of a surprise that a recent study found that 57% of Brits hated the idea of being proposed to on Valentine’s Day, with many people saying that the idea was clichéd, cheesy and lacked originality. Over recent years, gay marriages have become more popular and accepted in modern day society, with the boundaries being pushed to put together a spectacular proposal.

Ladbrokes Casino commissioned the study during the development of their ‘What kind of romantic are you?’ quiz, which uncovered some surprising facts about how British people propose or want to be proposed to. You might think that a Facebook proposal would be a complete no-no, but actually only 56% of the people interviewed considered this to be the worst way to propose, yet one in seven men would consider popping the question to their partner online. Even more surprising is the fact that restaurants are just as unpopular as cemeteries when it comes to proposals—although hopefully graveyard proposals are relatively rare.

It would seem that the Brits are not adventurous when it comes to getting down on one knee—compared to some of the best gay proposals from the United States—although our tendency to veer towards social media to get the job done could make us seem a little strange. The best American proposals have seen men popping the question through flash mobs, on stage at a show and on the streets of New York City. Churches are a fairly common setting, showing that we aren’t as secular as we might think, and many people also get engaged while at sea (although if you’re trapped on a cruise it could get awkward if the other person were to say no).

There are some contradictions in the results, however—although more than half of the participants claimed to hate the idea of a restaurant proposal, it could be that it was just the idea of a proposal in a restaurant on Valentine’s Day which was so odious for people, as one of the most popular locations for an engagement on any other day of the week was at a romantic dinner. The second favourite was a place that had sentimental value, perhaps the scene of a first date or holiday, with the third most popular place simply being at home.

ROy-Moore

The Alabama Supreme Court has blocked same-sex marriages, going against the current tide. When the Supreme Court decides this issue once and for all in June, those hicks will look like idiots.
