No-Holds-Bar Interview: Writer Claims He Was Philip Seymour Hoffman's Lover Comments (0)

David-Bar-Katz

UPDATE: Via a third party, Katz is denying he ever did an NE interview and is branding their story a "vulgar and disgusting lie." Legal action is promised. Will be fascinating to see if NE has any proof of the quotes or of the true nature of the relationship. NE isn't stupid; would it really just make up the entire thing and expect to get away with it? I'll say it again: Bizarre.

Come On Out, The Water Is Fine!: 1st Gay Finnish Jock To Come Out Comments (0)

Ari+Pekka+Liukkonen+Swimming+Training+Session+W2YUrQnmk1El

Ari-Pekka-Liukkonen-gayAri-Pekka Liukkonen has become the first-ever Finnish athlete to come out while still active in his sport—swimming. His decision is intimately related to Sochi and Russia's draconian anti-gay laws:

"I wanted to start a broader discussion in connection with Sochi, because it’s sad that the legislation in Russia restricts the human rights of young people and others."

Good for him. And for us.

There's Nothing She Won't Try: Penny Marshall Coming Out As A Lesbian? Comments (0)

Penny-Marshall

According to the National Enquirer, Penny Marshall is set to come out of the closet as a lesbian...and so is her "longtime girlfriend" Carrie Fisher. There wasn't a hint of this in her recent memoir, but what fun news!

It's also interesting to note that Carrie Fisher was once married to a man who later came out as gay, and that her mom is Debbie Reynolds, who has long been referred to as a closeted lesbian. (Fisher has said of her mom that she "isn't gay, she's just really bad at being heterosexual.")

Playing Hod: Itay Defends Outing Aaron Schock Comments (0)

I'm totally in support of Itay Hod for reasons I have expressed over and over on this blog. I have Itay-Hodbeen behind outing since I first understood the concept. Actually, before then; because we have all openly talked about people we assumed were gay from our very earliest conversations about homosexuality.

From the latest New York Times piece on Hod's Facebook-outing of Aaron Schock:

"Mr. Hod says he thinks there’s a Catch-22—that editors essentially argue against outing without proof while at the same time denying reporters the time and resources necessary to prove it. 'I’m not a D.C. reporter,' he said. 'They should be asking those questions; that’s their job, and the fact that they’re not doing it is because this is still an icky taboo subject.'...

"...Is he now concerned that this posting will damage his own career as a journalist?

"'If I don’t get a job because of the fact that I asked this question, it’s not a job I’m supposed to have,' said Mr. Hod, adding that it was worth it because 'the conversation has started.'"

Out-standing.
