ABOVE: Sheer perfection.
YAHOO! ENTERTAINMENT: Recently out T.J. Osborne and his band Brothers Osborne won at the CMAs — and gay representation won when T.J. gave his boyfriend a peck on camera.
POPULAR: The Boys in the Band actor Brian Hutchison (pictured at right — details about meeting him and the rest of the cast here) is launching I Still Think About You, a noir romance podcast that sounds like it gives good voice.
Via press release:
Adam McClure, successful New York actor, revisits a haunting incident from his past.

Unsettling and ominous, with twists and turns until the very end, I Still Think About You is part memoir, part psychological thriller, and part love letter to Broadway.
EXTRATV: RIP Jerry Douglas, who played John Abbott on The Young and the Restless FOR-EVER.

YAHOO! ENTERTAINMENT: Lance Bass says he was called gay every single day — because he was in a boy band, not even because he really was secretly gay. Also:
You know, one thing that I didn't have growing up was examples of gay people, you know, especially in entertainment. Everyone was hidden. I didn't really have anyone to look up to, but now, this generation has so many people in the public eye to relate to and be like, “Oh, that sounds like my story” or “That's the type of family I have.” Now we have like Troye Sivan ... JoJo Siwa, especially Lil Nas X. It's been so great for his community. You have all these young celebrities that are really accepting who they are and, because of that, their fans would probably accept themselves earlier.
OUTSPORTS: Major-league soccer has an anti-gay problem.
