Megan Fox Isn’t Supporting the LGBT Community—She Is a Part of the Community
Megan Fox isn’t super active on social media, so when she does make posts, it’s usually for a reason—as was the case with her latest Instagram post. In the post, she called out her home state of Tennessee for presenting a “slate of hate,” the series of bills, considered by many to be anti-LGBTQ, that could soon become law. She called for voters to make an enlightened choice, and the response to that from commentators was picked up on Yahoo News.
The bills Fox is addressing allows “private adoption agencies to raise moral objections over prospective parents, meaning a gay couple potentially couldn’t adopt. Another would prevent state and local governments from taking actions against a business based on its ‘internal policies.’ So a business could potentially refuse service to someone who is gay. Other legislation is directed at transgender people, including one that requires the state to defend school districts that require students to use the bathroom of their assigned sex at birth.”

Time 100's LGBTQ Honorees Include Lady Gaga, Ryan Murphy, Indya Moore
Ryan Murphy — the gay producer of FX's Pose, American Horror Story, American Crime Story, and more — is among those in the "titans" category. His entry was written by Jessica Lange, whose acting career experienced a revival in part due to Murphy casting her in AHS.
"He is a born storyteller, and, like the best of them, he is constantly pushing the limits. I have often marveled at his uncanny ability at capturing the zeitgeist," Lange wrote.
"Ryan is an artist of unlimited creative power and talent. But, more importantly, he has a great heart and is a dear and fiercely loyal friend. My life is better for knowing him."

Britney Is Proof We Haven't Broken The Stigma Around Mental Health - Yet
I vividly remember the day the story broke that Britney Spears had shaved her head before attacking a paparazzo’s car with an umbrella – pictures of which were splashed across the front pages of every newspaper. It was 2007. Most of the headlines over Britney’s ‘meltdown’ sought to ridicule her.
It started a chain of events in which the singer was in and out of rehab before a 5150 order was placed and she was put under psychiatric care after losing custody of her two sons and divorcing Kevin Federline. As a result, her father was appointed co-conservator of her estate as she was deemed unfit to look after her own affairs. And yet, social commentators and comedians responded by making jokes about ‘pulling a Britney’ – a by-phrase for ‘losing your sh*t’. No wonder, then, that the incident has been referred to as ‘a defining cultural moment’ in celebrity history.
Stars Help L.A. LGBT Center Open Campus for Youth and Seniors
The Los Angeles LGBT Center Sunday opened the first phase of its Anita May Rosenstein Campus, a two-acre complex in Hollywood designed to serve LGBTQ youth and seniors, making it the world’s first intergenerational LGBTQ facility.
The opening was celebrated with a six-hour block party featuring celebrities including Lily Tomlin, Kathy Griffin, and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, along with guided tours and musical performances by Betty Who, VINCINT, the Trans Chorus of Los Angeles, and Alexandra Billings.

Shangela's Success Shows the Power of Queer Resilience
Shangela has come a long way.
This year alone, the performer had a role in the acclaimed film A Star Is Born starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga — and became the first drag queen to walk the red carpet at the Oscars.
Additionally, Shangela made the LGBTQ community proud earlier this month by dancing and lip-syncing to a medley of Beyoncé songs — in front of Beyoncé at the GLAAD Media Awards. The now-viral performance was so excellent, even Queen Bey herself rose for a standing ovation.
Imagine Dragon's Dan Reynolds on living with 'frustrating' ankylosing spondylitis
Dan Reynolds is much more than the face of 'Imagine Dragons' and a dad of (almost!) four. The 31-year-old frontman of the Grammy-winning band is also campaigning to bring awareness to the painful and hidden disease that is ankylosing spondylitis (AS), which he was diagnosed with in his early 20s.
"I didn't know what the problem was," Reynolds says of his diagnosis process. "I wasn't diagnosed for so long...and the pain just continued and continued and that was super frustrating." The Vegas native was one of the millions living with the disease without realizing it. By that point, he was willing to try anything to alleviate the pain.
Adult son finds tons of gay x-rated videos on his dad’s computer–Now what?!
A 20-something man says he recently logged onto his dad’s personal computer and made a shocking discovery. Now, he’s turning to Reddit for help.
It all started when the man, who claims to be 26 and straight, used his father’s laptop to go to YouTube.
“As I typed in ‘you’ it tried to autofill me into the website Youporn with some homosexual title to the video,” the man writes. “At first I couldn’t believe what I was seeing given my father has been married to my mother for around 20 years.”
The man says his father is generally a “pretty negative and miserable person to be around,” but he’s never given any indication that he might be into dudes.
Woman claims her ex-husband is bisexual, so she told their son his father was “dead”
OFFERING HEALTH CHECK-UPS IN BARBERSHOPS COULD TRANSFORM HEALTH CARE FOR BLACK MEN IN AMERICA
Dennis Mitchell owns a small ground-floor barbershop in the heart of Harlem, where he presides over rows of gleaming salon chairs, cutting fades and shaves and earning the nickname Denny Moe. For years, one of the regular customers sitting in front of Moe's mirrors has been Dr. Joseph Ravenell, an associate professor in the Departments of Population Health and Medicine at New York University's School of Medicine. Barbershops have been havens for Ravenell since he was a kid, when he accompanied his father to his regular haircuts and witnessed the bonds that men formed in these safe places, "talking about everything under the sun."
As an adult, Ravenell focuses his research on the medical disparities black men face in America.
"As a man myself, and a father and a brother, I have an enlightened self-interest in the topic," he says, laughing. Black men, because of both logistical barriers and mistrust, are often cut off from health-care systems—but as he was thinking about haircuts one day, Ravenell says, "a lightbulb went off." Barbers, he thought, as trusted confidants and community leaders, could become a powerful bloc to promote health in black communities.
