  • Jonathan Demme 'Applauded' The LGBT Backlash Against 'Silence Of The Lambs'

    Director Jonathan Demme says he “applauded” the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community's criticism of his seminal 1991 film, "The Silence of the Lambs." Still, the Oscar winner told HuffPost Live's Ricky Camilleri that many of the arguments against the movie's portrayal of serial killer "Buffalo Bill" were misinterpreting the character, in that he wasn't intended to be transgender."He didn't wish to be another gender," Demme said. "He didn't really have a sexual preference. He loathed himself -- he wanted to transform himself so that there was no sense of him in the 'new' him [and] becoming a woman...that was his method of doing it." He then noted, "He wished he was a woman not because he always wanted[…]

  • Miley Cyrus Goes Topless In The Desert Because, Why Not

    What a view.Miley Cyrus found an interesting way to stay cool in the desert on July 21, as the 21-year-old stripped down to nothing but a pair of jean shorts. Considering she looks like she's in the middle of nowhere, this bold move easily could've gone unnoticed. But it wouldn't be Miley if she didn't share the topless photo with the world:Perhaps Cyrus is trying to reassure her fans that she's alive, after a sleazy Internet hoax tricked many into thinking she was dead. But rest assured, she's alive and well, and clearly just bein' Miley.

  • This Is What Making Out <em>Actually</em> Looks Like

    This Is What Making Out <em>Actually</em> Looks Like From pre-teens to retirees, who doesn't love a good make out? Swapping spit, touching tongues, banging braces for the younger set -- there are few ways to express your love while simultaneously grossing out those in your immediate vicinity like a good ol' french kiss. When you're the one doing the macking, you probably envision you and your designated kiss co-captain as the perfect picture of passion. But in reality, your slobbery display probably looks a little more like this:© RankinThis zoomed-in action comes courtesy of Rankin, British fashion photographer and founder of "Dazed & Confused." The series was created in 2000 but has been recently making the rounds online. Aptly titled "Snog," it features up-close-and-way-too-personal shots of lovers rounding[…]

  • How Gay Rights And Religious Freedom Are Impacted By Obama's Executive Order, Analysis

    (RNS) One of the toughest political calculations in Washington is balancing competing claims of gay rights with the traditional prerogatives of religious freedom. After a number of setbacks on that front, President Obama may have finally found a small patch of middle ground with Monday’s (July 21) move to bar federal contractors from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation.Obama’s executive order shields gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender employees from discrimination by companies that do work for the federal government by adding sexual orientation and gender identity to long-standing protections from bias based on “race, color, religion, sex or national origin.”Yet Monday’s action also leaves in place a 2002 order signed by President George W. Bush that gives religious groups[…]

  • GLAAD's 2014 Studio Responsibility Index Ranks LGBT Representation In Hollywood

    Seventeen major Hollywood movies may have included characters that identified as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT) last year, but there's still work to be done in terms of representing the community fairly and equally, a new report has found. With many of those 17 films limiting LGBT characters to minor roles or cameos, GLAAD's 2014 Studio Responsibility Index also found that many of these portrayals were "outright defamatory" representations, pointing to movies like "Pain And Gain" and "Riddick," officials said. The 17 films represented 16.7 percent out of 102 major Hollywood films released over the course of 2013. According to GLAAD's statistics, 83.3 percent of those 102 movies did not feature any LGBT characters. The report, which maps the[…]

  • World Health Organization Recommends PrEP: Prevention or Perpetuating Stereotypes?

    This month the World Health Organization recommended that all HIV-negative, sexually active "men who have sex with men" ("MSM") and trans women consider pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), which is the daily use of Truvada, an antiretroviral drug combination, to prevent HIV infections. Like many others in the queer community, I felt conflicted.While lacking exact numbers, I do know that HIV does not discriminate, affecting straight and gay people, trans and cis people, men and women alike. Yet, at the same time, we cannot deny that "men who have sex with men" and trans women are disproportionally affected.So let us queer folk take antiretrovirals to prevent HIV, right?Everybody should make their own health decisions: If PrEP keeps you healthy and you use[…]

Paul LePage (R).Patrick, who attended a fundraising luncheon along with Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin (D), criticized LePage's decision to skip conferences with his fellow New England governors focusing on regional issues."It may surprise the governor, and surprise you, that we don't sit around the table spouting partisan slogans," Patrick said Monday. "We're about problem solving."Patrick, who chose not to run for a third term as governor this year, is often mentioned as a potential Democratic presidential candidate. Though he has denied he's interested in a 2016 run, he has left the door open for a future bid.Shumlin is running for[…]

  • Remembering My Friends Joep Lange and Jacqueline van Tongeren, Lost on Malaysia Airlines Flight 17

    Joep Lange saved my life. Twenty-seven years ago, while I was living in Mexico, I learned that I had HIV, and some friends put me in touch with him. I was given AZT, the only medicine available at the time. But the virus quickly adapts to the AZT, and after a while it became resistant. At that point Joep arranged to get a different medicine for me, one that was still in the experimental stage, and when the effect of that wore off, he made sure I got another, and then another. "We have to fight for a combination therapy," Joep always said, expressing an opinion that was not shared by all his colleagues.In 1996 I finally obtained access to[…]

  • Transgender Children Today: Shifting the Responsibility for Change Away From Children and Onto Society

    Transgender Children Today: Shifting the Responsibility for Change Away From Children and Onto Society The first time a parent of a transgender child asked me for advice, I was thrown for a loop. Ten years ago, I couldn't quite fathom the reality that a family would actually seek to support their child. Limited as it was, my perception came from the notion that any of us desiring a gender transition had to pursue that as an adult, and that we do so only as a last resort.If anyone were to support our journey, we should feel deeply grateful. However, a handful of parents had begun looking for guidance. I wondered what resources might exist for families.My search turned up what theirs already had: very little.Written resources, knowledgeable providers and inclusive policies at schools were[…]

  • 'The Flash' Scoop Reveals Enemies, Friends, Crossovers And A Gay Character

    Don't expect "Arrow" and "The Flash" to be standoffish with each other this coming season. Not only will Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) of "Arrow" appear on the fourth episode of the first season of "The Flash," but the eighth episodes of both CW shows will make up a "mega-crossover event," in the words of executive producer Greg Berlanti. Berlanti and fellow executive producer Andrew Kreisberg, both of whom work on both shows, actually have three different classifications of "Flash"/"Arrow" interactions: "We have the cameo crossover, the big crossover and then the epic crossover," Kreisberg said. As "The Flash" revs up its engines, there will be "a few mini ones along the way," and then Felicity will be a major[…]

  • GOP Rep. David Jolly Comes Out In Support Of Gay Marriage

    GOP Rep. David Jolly (Fla.) announced his support of gay marriage Monday in a statement to the Washington Post.While Jolly said he personally believes in traditional marriage because of his Christian faith, he thinks the government should support both traditional and same-sex marriages. He also noted his support of Monroe County Circuit Judge Luis Garcia's decision to order the county's officials to begin issuing marriage licenses to gay couples last week."But as a matter of Constitutional principle I believe in a form of limited government that protects personal liberty," Jolly said. "To me, that means that the sanctity of one’s marriage should be defined by their faith and by their church, not by their state. Accordingly, I believe it is[…]
