ATTITUDE: Black, gay rapper Milan Christopher, 34, says he is proud of who he is after a worrying tweet a couple of months ago, in which he expressed frustration with being gay in a homophobic world:
... In that moment when I sent that tweet saying: “I wish I was straight,” it was because I know I am talented, and I know I wouldn’t have to go through this pushback if I was straight. A lot of these places are run by people who are extremely homophobic.
He sounds like he's come to grips with that struggle now — let's hope! There's no time to wish we aren't who we are, only time to force others to stop caring so much.
TWITTER: So, like, Gus Kenworthy and Matt Wilkas are open:

BARABOOK NEWS REPUBLIC: Over 40 students (including one who is called black by the person who posted the image) threw Nazi salutes (one did the white-power okay sign) in a junior high prom group shot at Baraboo High School in Wisconsin. Nothing has been done about it so far, other than the principal tweeting that she'll pursue some kind of action. The local paper wouldn't even state definitively that this was a sig heil.
