A restaurant is set to open in Dallas and is being billed as the male version of Hooters—the American chain made famous for its big-breasted women and delicious wings. A recently placed ad, reveals that the restaurant, Tallywackers will open on Lemmon Avenue (a gay-centric neighborhood), and is looking for a few good wackers to don skimpy shorts to serve up fast-casual fare. The restaurant held auditions this week to make sure the staff is up to snuff by posing in their boxers.

If Hooters is considered a ‘breastaurant’ what do we call Tallywackers?

EuroPride Riga Needs Your Help

From June 15-21, the beautiful and historic city of Riga, Latvia will host EuroPride 2015—the first time that EuroPride is taking place in a former Soviet republic. The organizers of this year’s event are planning for one of the best EuroPrides ever, including the Baltics’ longest Pride parade march, an LGBT film festival called “Black Carnation,” a Tom of Finland exhibition and a host of other great activities.
But they’re also facing a number of challenges due to their pioneering efforts to bring EuroPride to Russia’s doorstep.  The local government has not provided any financial contributions of any kind, corporate support—a mainstay in the US and Western Europe—has failed to materialize, and anti-gay groups are trying to complicate their efforts.
To offset that lack of support, the organizers just launched a crowdfunding campaign to help them cover some of the costs involved in putting on such a massive event.

Horrifying! Washington County School’s Disgusting Anti-Gay Week, Has Students Living in Fear

A Pittsburgh-area high school has turned the Gay Straight Alliance’s “Day of Silence” into a week of threats, violence, and hate. Last Thursday, students at McGuffey High School organized “Anti-Gay Day” in which many wore flannel shirts and wrote “Anti-Gay” on their hands. According to reports, they also passed around a “lynch list” of those students who observed the “Day of Silence,” which is intended to raise awareness toward anti-gay bullying. “Yesterday, there was pushing, posters hung on homosexual students’ lockers. Teachers were having to run out and take them down,” Zoe Johnson, a student at McGuffey High School, told MPXI on Friday. “It hurts me to see how rude and cruel, and some of these people were my friends before this started,” she said.

The abuse was also rampant on social media, with students posting Bible versus and tagging gay students. And while the superintendent released a statement, so far nothing has been done, and students plan on a whole week’s worth of anti-gay events, including wearing orange shirts in solidarity.

‘Millionaire Matchamaker’ David Cruz Fights for Gay Rights in Guam

April 21st, 2015 Joseph Pedro

David Cruz, who works for Patti Stanger on the hit Bravo reality show Millionaire Matchmaker, has launched an initiative to protect LGBT people in the US territory of Guam. In an e-mail the Guam-born star writes:

My name is David Cruz and I am a current cast member of Bravo TV’s “The Millionaire Matchmaker.” I spend a good part of my life setting up relationships and helping people find love. But, recently something has come my way that has broken my heart.

Last week I was saddened to hear that the Governor of Guam, the Island where I grew up, is denying Gay men and Women their legal right to marry- EVEN after being issued a legal memorandum to do so from the Attorney General of Guam.

I was compelled to voice my opinion about this matter as I am not only a son of Guam having grown up on the Island, but also as a gay man. I spend every moment of my life helping people find love and giving advice about relationships, so I cannot stand by and watch my own community of LGBT people be discriminated against.

I made this video to show my support for them and to rally all my friends and fans, to show thier support for equal rights and to send a message to the governor of Guam!

Today, we get the first look at Sir Ian McKellen in the brand-new film from Bill Condon, Mr. Holmes. The openly gay actor will play a retired Sherlock Holmes who is grappling with old age.

MR. HOLMES is a new twist on the world’s most famous detective. 1947, an aging Sherlock Holmes returns from a journey to Japan, where, in search of a rare plant with powerful restorative qualities, he has witnessed the devastation of nuclear warfare. Now, in his remote seaside farmhouse, Holmes faces the end of his days tending to his bees, with only the company of his housekeeper and her young son, Roger. Grappling with the diminishing powers of his mind, Holmes comes to rely upon the boy as he revisits the circumstances of the unsolved case that forced him into retirement, and searches for answers to the mysteries of life and love – before it’s too late.

The movie is out July 17th in the US.

Review: ‘Hand to God’

Broadway has gone to hell and a hand puppet—and that’s a good thing. Hand to God, the alarmingly visceral new American play by Robert Askins is a jolt of theater that the Great White Way has been waiting for.

The violent and funny work takes place “somewhere in Texas where the country meets the city” and follows the emotional wreckage of teenager Jason (Steven Boyer) as he attempts to come to terms with the death of his father with the help of a Christian after-school puppet workshop taught by his widowed mother Margery (Geneva Carr). Fellow students Timothy (Michael Oberholtzer) and Jessica (Sarah Stiles) play witness to Jason’s odd behavior and exceptional talent for puppetry as he finds his voice through his alter ego/sock puppet, Tyrone. Enter Pastor Greg (Marc Kudisch) as the hands-on man of the cloth, who persistently tries to persuade Margery to let go of her grief in a more carnal manner. Meanwhile, Timothy has his own pinings for Margery and his teenage testosterone gets the both of them. As the days wear on, the puppet (a.k.a Tyrone) becomes a more consuming presence in Jason’s life, giving voice to Jason’s tormented emotional state through a series of verbally and physically violent episodes.

Presidential Hopeful Marco Rubio ‘Evolves’ On Gay Rights

It seems like everyone is “evolving” on gay and lesbian marriage—others faster than others. Senator Marco Rubio, has made an unexpected statement, by saying that being gay is not a choice. “I believe that sexual preference is something that people are born with,” the Republican presidential candidate said Sunday morning on CBS’s Face the Nation. Earlier this week the Florida senator also said that he would attend a gay wedding. Rubio fell short of saying that he supports same-sex marriage. He said:  “I don’t think courts should be making that decision and I don’t believe same-sex marriage is a constitutional right.” [NYDN]
