Chanel’s Métiers d’Art Show Is Coming Back to Paris

HOMECOMING: There’s no place like home, according to Chanel.
Chanel’s next Métiers d’Art collection will be shown in Paris on Dec. 5, according to a statement issued by the house. The exact location is yet to be revealed.
The Métiers d’Art 2019-2020 collection will be the first designed exclusively by Virginie Viard, Karl Lagerfeld’s longtime right hand, who took over creative direction of the house following the designer’s death in February.
The collection traveled to the Metropolitan Museum of Art for New York for Chanel Métiers d’Art 2018-2019 and Lagerfeld’s native Hamburg, Germany, in 2017. The Métiers d’Art collection hadn’t been presented in France since the Paris-Cosmopolite collection at the Ritz in 2016, in honor of the luxury hotel’s reopening.
Lagerfeld introduced this pre-fall ready-to-wear collection — embellished with the specialty couture ateliers Chanel owns — in 2002. Previous destinations for the Métiers d’Art show include Edinburgh, Scotland; Shanghai; Rome; and Dallas.
The announcement comes as Chanel is strengthening its bond with the French capital. In February 2018, the house signed on as the exclusive private sponsor of the renovation of the Grand Palais with plans to pledge 25 million euros toward the works, which are due to be completed in time for the Summer Olympics in

Short Sellers Coming For Elon Musk’s Company On Twitter With $TslaQ Hashtag In Hopes To Cash In

$  TslaQ Hashtag

Source: Spencer Platt / Getty

Elon Musk should be riding a wave of momentum right now. Just recently his company Tesla announced its new crossover SUV, the Model Y and unveiled a leasing option for the model 3. But there is a growing group consisted of crowd-sourced short sellers on a mission to see Musk and his company fail so they can take advantage and make some money.

If you click on the $ TslaQ hashtag on Twitter, you will see a concerted effort from short sellers (investors who profit from stocks declining) to expose Telsa and its CEO Elon Musk in hopes to see the company’s value crash and burn. In a detailed report from the Los Angeles Times, writer Russ Witchell breaks down just how intricate this crowd-sourced effort is.

From having their own fleet of pilots called the Shorty Air Force who fly over lots exposing hundreds of cars sitting and a ground effort called the Shorty Ground Force who gather images of cars just collecting dust tell a different story than what Elon Musk’s Twitter timeline is saying.

Per The Los Angeles Times:

“Ten days left in the quarter, and they’re just sitting there,” said Machine Planet, peering down at the remote landscape outside Lathrop. Tesla bought those trailers to aid what Chief Executive Elon Musk said will be an unprecedented wave of new car deliveries in March. But to Machine Planet — that’s the name he uses on Twitter — the scene just confirms his suspicions that there are lots all around the U.S. filled with unsold Tesla cars. (He and others claim to have counted 52.)”

“If you spend any time on the Twitter hashtag $ TslaQ, you know what this means to Tesla short sellers. They believe the lots full of new Model 3s — and Models S and X vehicles, too — show Tesla has reached a cliff in demand for its vehicles. When the rest of the world finally admits the company’s days as a fast-growth story are numbered, they say, its stock price will crash, creating a bonanza for investors who, like Machine Planet, have bet big that Tesla’s shares are grossly overvalued.”

Again while they have done extensive research on the company gathering all kinds of info and photos, Musk is telling a different story about his company and business is good, and the cars are moving.

We will just have to see if Musk’s dream of owning the road, sending people to space and equipping homes with solar panels will come to fruition.

The Autobiography of Gucci Mane Biopic Is Coming Soon

The reinvention of Gucci Mane rolls on after the longtime East Atlanta star has morphed from celebrated trapper to a serene yet still capable talent on the mic. After penning The Autobiography of Gucci Mane book, Gucci is aiming to take his story to movie screens very soon.

A tweet from Gucci Mane on Wednesday signified the opening of the new chapter.

“#TheAutoBiographyOfGuccimane is coming to a theatre near you #DirectorGuccimane #1017Films,” read the not-so-cryptic tweet.

Now 37, Gucci’s time as a Hip-Hop artist doesn’t appear to be slowing anytime soon despite his big wins inside and outside of music. After dropping off his 12th studio album El Gato: The Human Glacier last month which was reportedly recorded over two days, there were hints he was turning that project into a film as well.

A new album, The Evil Genius, is also on the way later in the year. The typically prolific Gucci dropped off the last of his many mixtapes, Woptober, in 2016. There is no timetable set for the biopic but best believe fans are ready.

Signs The World Is Coming Back To An End

What would you do if somebody raped your wife? Beat them up? Kill? Sue? Would you cut their genitals off then eat them in solidarity with the victims? Not so much. Well that is what Rudi Efendi did over in Indonesia. He actually got arrested after they found a suspected rapist all mutilated, burned up and dead in a car. Rudi Efendi’s wife Nuriah was raped by another person named “Rudi.” Efendi eventually confessed to the crime and admitted that ate the man’s penis. How did he do it? He hacked it off and went home and fried it. “I ate his ‘vital tool’,” Efendi told police. “I ate it to heal my heart ache towards the victim,” he said. WOW. That’s the “Why” in all of this.

Bruh man was not playing with his revenge plot.

Coming Out Advice From Two Straight Guys

Life with brothers can be tough at times. One minute you’re eating Pop-Tarts for breakfast and the next you’re beating each other with backpacks full of hardcover books. It’s a dynamic relationship that turns more than a few parents’ hair grey. It can also be a bond that we develop with our male peers, especially if there isn’t a genetically-related brother to be found. In my case, there is a complication in these relationships though.

I am gay.

For most of my short life I was not — at least not publicly. My brother and all of my close guy friends were unaware of this until relatively recently, which means at least some part of me was lying to them for years, if not decades.

Many gay and bisexual men struggle to come out to their closest male companions not only because they fear rejection, but even more so because they fear the reaction to the lie they have been telling. I have had conversations with numerous gay and bi men who, even as adults, still feel this way and have not been able to come out to their brothers or friends.

As the Founder of ComingOut.Space, I get to read a lot of coming out stories and have had the chance to learn about the experiences of many others. To learn more about the impact my own coming out had on two of my closest male friends, my younger brother and a lifelong friend, I sent them a few questions to better understand their reactions. The coming out process happened years ago, so both have had more than enough time to reflect on their thoughts and our relationships.

1) Did you feel betrayed when you found out that I was gay, knowing that this was a secret I had been keeping for years?

My friend replied,

No. For me, it was easy to understand that transparency was difficult with that subject and that you had to be ready to come out. I don’t really know how to expand on it further because it is that clear cut. I just didn’t feel that way. I remember questioning why I wasn’t the first friend you told, and wondered why you told people who seemingly you were not that close to, but that makes a lot more sense to me in retrospect.

My brother replied essentially the same thing. In truth, I came out first to friends I hadn’t known as long and who I was more confident would accept me. My logic was that I needed to build up my confidence in low-risk situations before I could tell the people who meant the most to me. I think, in the end, it was the right decision.

2) How, if at all, do you think our relationships would have been different if I had been honest sooner. Really think about this one. Given that we grew up in small town, would you have been ok with it if I had told you while I was still in high school? You might want the answer to be yes, but is that true?

To this, both my brother and friend replied that they wished, for my own happiness, that I could have come out much sooner. However they both admitted that if I had come out when we were younger, they would not have handled the situation the same way. My friend wrote,

I think that I wish you would have come out sooner, but maybe not in high school, because I question what my reaction would have been. I don’t know that the course of our ultimate friendship would have been altered, but I think it may have taken me some time to come around to the idea in high school.

My brother shared that sentiment, but also added,

I had no idea this was something that was weighing on your mind so heavily. After you came out, I felt as though a weight had been lifted from your shoulders. Our relationship has become better over the years and I believe part of that has to do with the time at which you chose to come out.

Do I think their response means young men need to keep their sexuality a secret until their loved ones have matured? Definitely not. Do I think that coming out at a younger age presents a different set of challenges? Absolutely. When to come out is an extremely personal decision, but it is an interesting idea to think about the relative success of a coming out based on timing.

3) Do you have advice for gay guys who are struggling to come out or to guys who have to deal with their brother/friend coming out?

In a resounding word of encouragement, both my brother and friend answered this question by first saying that being honest with yourself is of the utmost importance. Either directly or indirectly, they both touched on an important issue. When I was still in the closet, I was a different version of myself. I wasn’t happy. I wasn’t always kind. Coming out helped me become the best version of myself and therefor made it possible for our relationships to progress. In retrospect, all three of us know this and are happy it happened.

To men whose brother or friend has just come out to them, my brother had this to say:

Try to understand what is going on with your brother or friend. If you are upset it is okay to show your emotions, but remember that coming out is not an easy thing to do for anyone. In my eyes the best thing that you can do is to be a good listener. The feelings and words of someone who is coming out have been thought about time and time again. Give them space and listen to what they have to say. Lastly, if nothing else, just be supportive of your family members through any impactful situation that they may go through. Family is for support and love not tearing each other down.

Coming Out and Taking In

National Coming Out Day is here. It’s a time to celebrate who we are — no matter who we want to have sex with, or how we speak, move and act or how we identify. But as righteous, thrilling and important as coming out is — and it is! — it is equally important to take in. (I’ll get to what I mean by that in a bit).

As a culture we tend to burden LGBTQ people with the demand that they accept, own, contextualize, announce, navigate and explain who they are and what they need — often all on their own. Indeed, as soon as a queer person comes out and socially identifies as LGBTQ, the onus is usually on her to instantly become her own spokesperson to the world, to make sense of herself for others. It’s like a movie or TV show in which an alien lands on earth and confidently tells all the humans what it’s like to come from his planet. Except most queer people — particularly those who are still kids, tweens or teens — don’t always know what it’s like to live on Planet Queer.

And why would they? Young LGBTQ people have little or no experience being themselves in a social context. In most cases, parents raise their kids with the expectation that they will turn out straight and gender conforming, even if they get signals from their kids suggesting otherwise. In rare cases, of course, a child may take a risk and, in the face of these expectations, deliberately and assertively tell his parents exactly who he is. But even in such a case, the burden is still on the child to be an immediate expert on his own untapped gender identity or sexual orientation.

Ideally our primary caregivers pay such close attention to us as infants — when we cry, play and explore — that they can eventually anticipate what we need, what we want and how we like to be. Ideally our caregivers learn to accommodate us with a range of toys and narratives that help us express who we are. This does not mean that by permitting our choice of truck or doll, our caregivers are solidifying us as boy or girl, straight or gay. It simply reflects the fact that parental attunement of this kind encourages us to develop naturally, through a multiplicity of gender expressions, based on the interaction between our drives and our early environments.

There are numerous social pressures that can make this process of attunement challenging for parents of LGBTQ kids. And though some manage better than others, we can’t expect all parents to create the perfect world in which a non-straight, non-gender conforming child can grow up. But what we can do, at least, is take the pressure off of such children to be the experts of their own orientations — especially before they’ve even had the opportunity to discover multiple and various versions of themselves.

And similarly, for those who are discovering they exist somewhere between L, G, B or T, they can find ways to nurture their true selves, even in the absence of parental attunement. These children and adults can prepare to navigate the world around them before they are ready to come out, through a process of what I call taking in.

Taking in is when we recognize the potential others see in us and let ourselves make meaning out of it. From the very beginnings of our lives, taking in is what we do as babies when our parents feed, kiss, smile and otherwise attend to us. We absorb the message that we exist and that we are special. As we get older and develop personalities, we look to caretakers to continue this process with us; we seek reflections of our behaviors to validate who we are. The responses we get are sometimes encouraging (“You’re mama’s tough guy,” “Look at you flirt with the ladies”) and other times discouraging (“Boys don’t wear dresses”). And when we become too discouraged, or overwhelmed with images for which we have no use — macho superheroes, or super-skinny helpless princesses or the heterosexual kissing in everything from cartoons to commercials to movies to…well…everything — we stop taking in and shut down.

But giving up on our selves in this manner is not the only option. We can stay on our own sides and consciously seek information, images and stories that validate us. And most importantly, we can consciously take in people who inspire us to develop an authentic sense of self.

That was a challenge for me as a lonely effeminate boy growing up in a small rural town in the 1980’s and 90’s (without the internet!). There was no access to images of people like me having social lives or becoming happy adults or living out loud. There were no people talking about or encouraging such developments either. I was fortunate enough to have parents who bought me the Miss Piggy toys I wanted to play with at home. But playing outside — beyond the private confines of my family — was another story.

Good thing I was introverted. I would’ve gotten beaten up regularly if I had tried to express myself in the way Madonna told us — well, those of us who had crushes on men — to do at that time. So I silently dragged my awkward, effeminate, little body through life, while I daydreamed of actually living.

But along the way a few adults observed not only my struggle to fit into the world around me, but also my creative interests and potential. They didn’t necessarily know how to help me to navigate the thorny maze of social norms any better than my parents did. But from where they stood, they could do their best to nurture my sense of self, and give me the opportunity to take them in.

Ms. Cook, the band teacher and theater director, was one of those people. When I was ten, I had to cross the street from my school and wait at the high school for my father to take me home. He was the high school principal at the time (lucky me). It was nothing new to have to entertain myself for long stretches of time as I waited, but Ms. Cook had a better idea. She decided to let me assist her on the high school plays she directed, some of which — like Agnes of God — contained extremely dark, mature content. I loved it. I felt included in something interesting and important. I felt special. In addition to giving me a safe, secure place in which to exist, Ms. Cook had effectively anticipated my hunger to be an artist, something I had not yet fully realized myself. I took her in, and I developed this part of myself. This gave me a sense of self-security years before I was ready to come out as gay. And Ms. Cook never asked anything of me in return.

This is crucial to remember about taking in: if we are to grow through taking in a caregiver, we must not owe the caregiver anything. When parents feed their babies they certainly don’t expect the baby to feed them in return (at least not for many decades). Mentors like Ms. Cook, whose relationships to us have clear boundaries, are the best kind of adults to take in. If you ever feel taken advantage of by a mentor who seems to have good intentions, limit your contact with him or her, and look to someone with whom you feel safe and do not feel beholden.

As I inched my way out of the closet during my teenage years, my aunt Connie became another key person for me to take in. Like Ms. Cook before her, Connie observed my struggle to find myself, and untapped reserves of creative expression within me. An actress herself, she offered to take me on auditions for local plays and educated me about theater during our rides in the car. I felt special again, empowered as I began to develop an authentic part of myself under the supportive and watchful eye of an adult. Years later, I found that the identity I developed as an actor, along with the safe relationships I formed — with adults like Connie — gave me something secure to stand on when I eventually began to use the word “gay” to describe myself.

Another thing for young LGBTQ folks to remember is that there may be adults around you with whom your contact is limited, but whom you can take in nonetheless. You may get only a glimmer of positive recognition from them, but even that can be incredibly nurturing if you allow it to be.

I’m thinking now of Leslie Davidson, the Dean of Bard College at Simon’s Rock, which I attended when I was sixteen (an attempt by this girly-boy to find a better fit than my small-town high school). Leslie was a resident director at the time, and she was one of the adults who intervened during a serious breakdown I had — no doubt related to my identity. She saw me at what I thought was my most vulnerable, ugly and messy. She offered warmth and support, and just enough practical advice to get me the concrete support I needed — including psychotherapy. I did not interact with Leslie again during my time at that school, and I was ashamed, fearing she must have thought of me as a loser. But if I knew then what I know now, I would have instead held onto the glimmer of recognition in her eyes when she offered me help. She very briefly conveyed an understanding of my struggle, but also a belief that I would eventually get to the other side of it, and find my way. This proved true decades later when Leslie asked me to speak on a panel during a fall Parents’ Weekend at the college. She had held me in mind all those years, and followed news of my life and career as it developed. And, as it turned out, she thought of me as an adult (and alum) worthy of presenting to a new crop of anxious parents who were about to release their kids into the wilds of college life.

So come out if you’re ready — if you have people whom you trust, and more importantly if you have a strong sense that you can trust yourself. Having a strong sense of who you are and the urge to make it known is a wonderful thing. A thing to be celebrated. But also keep in mind that coming out is a lifelong process. There will always be new aspects of our orientations, identities and modes of expression that we will discover and eventually want to share with the world. And in the meantime, we can nurture those developing aspects of self by taking the right people in.

Andy Cohen And His Parents Share His Coming Out Story

Andy Cohen marked National Coming Out Day by interviewing his parents, Ev and Lou, on SiriusXM’s Andy Radio” this weekend. On the debut installment of “Free Advice with Ev & Lou Cohen,” the Cohens looked back at what happened when Andy first identified as gay. 

The Bravo TV personality, 47, turned introspective in the interview as his mother recalled suspecting her son might be gay after she saw him performing in the musical “Carousel.” Later, she uncovered gay porn under Andy’s bed and an emotional letter in which he’d opened up about his sexuality to a friend. 

Eventually, Ev confronted Andy, but asked her son to say the words out loud, ”because that made it real.” 

Pointing to Andy’s “dramatic” female friends, she joked, “I never would’ve liked your wife anyway.” 

Later in the interview, Ev Cohen revealed she had a difficult time accepting her son’s sexuality for about six months after he came out, and sought help from a psychiatrist. 

“It was 1989, and everybody — all these young men — were dying of AIDS, and I was worried you were gonna get AIDS,” she told Andy. “I had to mourn my expectations that you’d get married, that you’d have children. At that time, those were not possible.”

A good friend’s words quickly changed her mind, however, and Ev has been supportive of her son, as well as active in the gay community, ever since.

Judge Rules ‘Muslims Are Coming!’ Ads Allowed In NYC Subways

NEW YORK — The mere mention of the word “Muslim” or the simple discussion of Islam is not political, a federal judge ruled Wednesday, ordering New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority to allow a series of subway advertisements for the documentary “The Muslims Are Coming!“ 

The documentary follows a group of Muslim comedians on a standup tour of the United States in an effort to combat Islamophobia. The film’s production company, Vaguely Qualified Productions, sued the MTA in July after the agency wouldn’t allow a subway ad campaign promoting the film. 

The ads in question were decidedly lighthearted and disarming. One poster reads, “BEWARE: The MUSLIMS are COMING! … And they shall strike with hugs so fierce, you’ll end up calling your grandmother and telling her you love her.” 

According to the MTA, however, the campaign violated a new rule it had instituted in April, barring any ads that expressed an opinion regarding “disputed economic, political, moral, religious or social issues.”

The agency had implemented the rule to safeguard itself from legal challenges it often faced when rejecting ads with sometimes vile political messages. (Courts, for example, had previously forced the MTA to post Islamophobic ads created by the American Freedom Defense Initiative, a hate group.)

The decision to not allow the “Muslims Are Coming!” subway ads, lawyers for the MTA argued, was a “reasonable and viewpoint neutral” decision.  

But in her written decision Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Colleen McMahon found the MTA’s argument insufficient.

“Indeed, the evidence before the court plainly indicates that VQP’s silly advertisements were subject to greater scrutiny than other potentially controversial ads,” she wrote. “An advertisement for Freelancers Union that was accepted by the MTA and displayed in the subways included the following text, in comic book-style font: “Funny how corporations are people when it comes to politics but faceless machines when it comes to PAYING actual people.”

Judge McMahon pointed to other ads the MTA had accepted. There was a CNN ad for the network’s coverage of a Republican presidential debate, which included photos of the candidates alongside quotes, including John Kasich’s: “It is a bad system when billionaires can pick the one who can be the president.”

And the MTA accepted an ad for the television show “Mr. Robot,” which included text saying, “PRIVACY IS A MYTH,” “CORPORATIONS OWN YOUR MINDS” and “BANKS OWN YOUR MONEY.”

The “Mr. Robot” ad in particular, Judge McMahon wrote, was “more blatantly ‘political’ … than are [Vaugley Qualified Production’s] ads for its movie, which take on religious intolerance with gentle humor.” 

The ads for “The Muslim’s Are Coming!” Judge McMahon added, are “not ‘prominently or predominantly political’ — unless we have reached the unhappy moment in this country where the mere mention of one of the three Abrahamic faiths is ‘prominently or predominantly political’ simply because that faith is Islam.” 

“And that the advertisements at issue gently mock prejudice and employ Islamophobia as a comedic device does not make their message ‘prominently or predominately’ political,” the judge added. 

Two of the film’s featured Muslim comedians, Dean Obeidallah and Negin Farsad, applauded the judge’s decision Wednesday. 

“We’re thrilled that the judge in this case recognized that our Muslim background was not a political issue,” said Obeidallah in a statement. “Like so many other comedians, we can continue performing and make people laugh by using our personal lives and experiences as fodder for our shows.”

“Shutting down a couple of American Muslim comedians from spreading delightfulness on the subway? That never made sense,” said Farsad. “This has been a victory of reason and freedom of speech over ridiculousness. MTA subway posters just got way more hilarious and 100% more Muslim.”

Glenn Katon, the legal director at Muslim Advocates, which filed the lawsuit on behalf of Vaguely Qualified Productions, said that “the court decision upholds our claim that sharing humor and stories by and about American Muslims educates the public about the Muslim community and should not be considered political speech,” 

Adam Lisberg, a spokesperson for the MTA, told The Wall Street Journal that the agency is reviewing the judge’s decision.

Watch Out, Sephora. H&M Beauty Is Coming For You.

When we first heard that H&M was launching a beauty line, we pictured the check-out counters of the Swedish retailer being updated with a few makeup basics. As in, stacks of lipstick, eyeshadow and nail polish in the typical red, pink and nude shades. Oh were we wrong!

The new beauty line recently debuted in 900 stores worldwide and online, with over 700 products to fulfill just about every cosmetic, haircare and skincare need. We’re talking velvety eyeshadows in matte, shimmer and metallic finishes, over 160 nail polish colors with cheeky names such as Lifejacket and rich body creams loaded with hydrating ingredients like shea butter and vitamin E

The fast-fashion retailer has established a cult following thanks to their basic tees and trendy designer collaborations. H&M Beauty concept designer Sara Wallander said in a press release that the new line was “an opportunity to be inventive and creative, and to have fun with colors.” 

Everything is priced under $ 25, and H&M definitely didn’t hold back when it came to offering beauty products with rich pigments, long-lasting formulas and sophisticated packaging. And it’s all displayed atop sleek beauty stations that rival Sephora’s, enticing beauty mavens and mavericks to touch, try and buy it all. 

Want to know what’s worth fighting for in the H&M Beauty department? Check out our top five editors’ picks below!

My Experience of Coming Out in Kentucky…

2015-09-19-1442671005-7280792-comingout.jpg

My name is Whitney and I am one half of the vlogging and blogging duo known as ‘Wegan,’ My wife Megan and I conquered long distance between Hawaii and the UK, and now reside in England. We live our lives out and proud on the internet as a married lesbian couple; raising femme visibility. However, life was not always this way for me. I came out when I was 15 years old in a very small conservative town in Kentucky over 10 years ago. It was one of the hardest things I ever did, but one of the best decisions I ever made.

I have been asked for years from our followers for my coming out story and I have always been reluctant and nervous to discuss and relive my experiences of coming out in Kentucky. However, the more that I see of Kim Davis and Kentucky in the news, the more I want to stand up and be proud of not only being gay, but being a Christian and a Kentuckian too!

Coming out in Kentucky was by no means an easy ride. The struggle was real and the challenges I faced were tough. However, looking back now I can clearly see that if it wasn’t for those challenging times, I never would have become the woman I am today.

Coming out is never easy, no matter where you live or how old you are, it’s always a challenging thing to do, but if you watch my video I hope you can relate if you’re having a tough time coming out too- because please believe me, it does get better. We won’t let the Kim Davis’ of the world win, because we’re far too good for that!

This is my story: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0g2dbAwTYR4&feature=youtu.be

He can’t have her. And he can’t tell anyone why. Ski racer Dane “Danger” Hollister does not do relationships, though he keeps his reason a secret. The real-life curse he's inherited from his mother will eventually cost him everything: his place on the Olympic ski team, his endorsement income, and his ability to fly downhill at top speed. Reluctant country girl Willow Reade meets Dane by accident. Literally. Her skidding truck forces him off the road during a blizzard. Stranded together in his Jeep as night falls, the two loneliest people in Vermont find themselves sharing more than they'd planned. And not just conversation. Yet neither can guess how their unlikely tryst will threaten Dane’s frightening secret and Willow’s tentative peace with her own choices. Only mutual trust and understanding can end their pain and give them a hard won shot at love. "Bowen writes great dialogue and wonderfully realistic characters." –Sarah Wendell (Smart Bitches Trashy Books) for Kirkus  "A powerful, redemptive love story that churned my insides, but also left me absolutely satisfied." –The Bookish Babe "A deeply romantic story that warms with slow-burn eroticism and genuine insight into loss and love. Sarina Bowen's debut glows with intelligence and a lovely sweetness." –Mary Ann Rivers, author of LIVE

Isis King Talks About Caitlyn Jenner Coming Out

Model, actress, and designer Isis King may have been born biologically male, but ever since childhood she knew she was woman. Establishing a transgender identity does not come easy though, and at 23, Isis was homeless, living at a New York City LGBT shelter. After finding work as a background model for an America’s Next Top Model photo shoot, host Tyra Banks took an interest in her, and asked Isis be a part of the show’s next season. Within months, Isis was in the national spotlight as the first transgender contestant on Top Model, and she has used her platform to follow her dreams ever since – expanding her modeling and acting career, designing her own clothing line, and serving as an activist for transgender people everywhere.

Is the attention on Caitlyn Jenner good or bad from the transgender community?

“Definitely” says Isis. “Any time you can bring more awareness to the struggle and reality of so many people, it’s helpful.” Isis emphasizes the importance of showing more trans stories in media, hoping that it will lend a “normality” to the trans experience.

However, she acknowledges that there is still work to be done. The murder rate of trans people of color has gone up, and many appearances of transgender people in the media still feature rampant misgendering – that is, labelling people by their birth gender instead of how they actually identify. This process “invalidates the way audiences view people who have transitioned,” and is hurtful and damaging, especially when the misgendered person is a victim in the news. Caitlyn has certainly helped the visibility, but Isis stresses the need for more “normal” transgender people in the media to really improve mainstream awareness and acceptance.

LOOKOUT! Big, Bad Pit Bulls Are Coming For You… With Kisses

AAAAAHHH RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!

… if you hate kisses. 

The pitties in the video above are coming for you, armed with slobbering mouths and so much love. So if you’re allergic to snuggling or just downright despise some love from a furry friend, then we recommend you stay far, far away from these blocky-headed love bugs. 

Don’t say we didn’t warn you. 

 

For the second year, The Huffington Post is holding a week-long, community-driven effort to bust the myths and raise awareness about pit bulls, a maligned “breed” that often bears the brunt of dated, discriminatory legislation that can make it near impossible for these dogs to find a forever home. You can follow along with HuffPost Pit Bull Week here, or on social media where we’ll be using the hashtag #PitBullWeek.

How River Phoenix’s Coming of Age Anticipated My Own

river phoenix

He was born, hard to believe, 45 years ago today, in Madras, Oregon, which later became a setting for the dreamy, disoriented roadside flashbacks in My Own Private Idaho. He was given the name River Jude; River for Hermann Hesse’s Siddhartha, Jude for “Hey Jude.” His last name then was Bottom. So, yes . . . River Bottom. His siblings were Rain, Liberty, Summer, and Joaquin. His parents, fruit pickers and missionaries, took the family to Venezuela where they sang on the street for money; only after splitting from the Children of God movement and stowing away on a cargo ship to Florida did they change their surname to Phoenix, after the Ancient Egyptian symbol of rebirth. Later, in Los Angeles, in a somewhat more settled-down life but still singing on street corners, young River was discovered, cast in commercials and films, eventually Stand By Me, where his performance as Chris Chambers first marked him as one of the most talented and promising actors in Hollywood—a prophecy he would live long enough to only partially fulfill.

Most of the early parts of this biography were chronicled in the terrible magazines I obsessively collected about River Phoenix, along with the standard height and weight and astrological and favorite color info. I didn’t care about that stuff. I was going to cut out all that anyway and pin up his pictures all over my wall. I knew it was beneath River anyway: He said elsewhere that he lied to reporters half the time, and that made me like him even more. The favorite idiotic headline back then was usually some variation on “River Is Deep,” which seemed to me to hit even below the dubious abilities of whoever was running the show at Teen Beat. But River was deep. It was because of him that I became a strict vegetarian in my small North Carolina town where no one had heard of tofu; for nearly a decade after he died I still didn’t eat meat. River was older; River was wiser. River was hot.

He was for me, simultaneously idol and crush, cast in the dual role of being both who I wanted to be like and who I wanted to make out with. I didn’t relate to the cute vapid girlfriend characters that proliferated on screen—the release of The Diary of a Teenage Girl this summer makes all the more apparent the lack of any girl characters who were not only cool and worth aspiring to emulate, but remotely relevant to anything resembling real life. Meanwhile the boys were permitted to be dirty and funny and free.

River had some years on me, sure, but for me he was just the right age to look up to: older brother, older crush, the first person I saw every morning on the wall of my bedroom. His movies were about my own struggles—growing up, first loves and sex and first heartbreak, rebelling against your family, against the world; being drawn to darkness and escapism, but still, deep down, trying to be a good person. His coming of age anticipated mine.

“Kids lose everything unless there’s someone there to look out for them. And if your parents are too fucked up to do it, then maybe I should,” said River-as–Chris Chambers, tough and baby-Brando cool with his pack of smokes rolled up in his T-shirt, telling off his hoodlum brother Eyeball, his teachers, his parents, running away into the woods and perilously over a train trestle with his three best friends to find “the body of a dead kid.” I spent my own summers building forts in the woods, sneaking through bridge tunnels, desperate for that kind of adventure, as morbid as their mission was. He was sensitive and sage but he also had a pretty stupid, sarcastic, perverse sense of humor that struck a nerve with me, as vital a part of growing up as losing your virginity, gaining a sense of your own mortality, figuring out who your true friends were, and learning how to tell your authorities, now and then, to fuck off. Put me in front of a screening of Stand By Me and I can still recite every line.

In the canon of River Phoenix, the best of which also includes My Own Private Idaho, The Mosquito Coast, Running on Empty, and the underrated Dogfight and The Thing Called Love, there is a lot of learning to tell authorities, parents and otherwise, to fuck off, but that’s mediated within a larger, moral context: How do you simultaneously rebel against your parents while still loving them? How do you stand up to the rest of the world and its deep flaws, while also finding your own way in it?

Here’s River as Charlie Fox, son of eccentric inventor Allie (Harrison Ford), who uproots his family to a Central American jungle in The Mosquito Coast, Peter Weir’s film based on the Paul Theroux novel: “Once I had believed in Father and the world had seemed small and old. Now he was gone and I wasn’t afraid to love him anymore. And the world seemed limitless.”

Running on Empty, directed by Sidney Lumet, for which Phoenix was nominated for an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor, is loosely inspired by the Weather Underground—his character’s parents, played by Christine Lahti and Judd Hirsch, jumpsuit-clad seventies radicals, are in constant hiding from the government for an activist bombing they took part in years ago, and as a result the entire family abides by a code of constant name changes, hair dyes, an implicit agreement to never become close enough to anyone to reveal their true selves and thus incriminate the family. Their tiny homespun parties, dancing around the house to “Fire and Rain” are anonymous, bittersweet ones—“On our birthday, we’re all called Sam,” Danny tells his girlfriend Lorna, played by River’s real-life girlfriend Martha Plimpton. It’s the ultimate overprotectiveness, loving but suffocating. Wanting to go to college is as shattering a rebellion as falling in love, and in the film River does both.

Even My Own Private Idaho, Gus Van Sant’s brilliant 1991 film costarring Keanu Reeves, is essentially a film about family, as much as it is a gay film, as much as it is a drug film, as much as it is a road movie—“a crazy quilt of family romances” as critic Amy Taubin describes it. River’s narcoleptic street hustler character searches for reconciliation and connection, with such beautifully wrought, homesick desperation that he rebels even against himself. “He’s put his lips as close to any street-gutter ooze as you can,” Phoenix told The New York Times. “His cut-open flesh is as close to a stone brick wall as anything. He’s part of the street. He’s like a rat.” It’s the darkest turn in Phoenix’s career; looking back now, it’s hard not to see it foreshadowing the end of his own life, two years later, and fates that very nearly befell certain people in mine. But by then, he’d gone somewhere beyond me.

“Everyone should survive their first rebellions. Dying defeats the whole point,” wrote Miranda July of River earlier this summer in Vogue. If I’d relied upon River during my own coming of age, the sense of loss I felt at outliving his was a distant survivor’s guilt, coupled with a loss that a larger world has publicly acknowledged, in angry and heartfelt and honorific ways, in song lyrics and apologies and speculation.

I don’t want to dwell on the details of River Phoenix’s death—today would have been his birthday after all, and it’s pointless, I think, to endlessly pontificate on what his life would have been had he lived beyond his earliest years to see it. If he were here, I could only thank him for helping me make it through mine.

Kristen Stewart Doesn’t Owe You a ‘Coming Out’ Speech

BY RACHEL KRAMER BUSSEL

Kristen Stewart has issued a bold response to those intent on confirming exactly what sexual label to pin on her. In the latest issue of Nylon, in which the actress appears on the cover, she tells anyone interested in her sexuality: “Google me, I’m not hiding.” She added:

If you feel like you really want to define yourself, and you have the ability to articulate those parameters and that in itself defines you, then do it. But I am an actress, man. I live in the fucking ambiguity of this life and I love it. I don’t feel like it would be true for me to be like, ‘I’m coming out!’ No, I do a job. Until I decide that I’m starting a foundation or that I have some perspective or opinion that other people should be receiving… I don’t. I’m just a kid making movies.

It’s a fitting statement from Kristen Stewart, not only because she’s called fame “the worst thing in the world,” but also because she’s saying, essentially, that the focus on her personal life detracts from discussion of her work — or anything else about her. It’s a reminder that Stewart doesn’t owe the Internet an official “coming out” — and to presume she does is insulting and insensitive.

MORE FROM THE DAILY DOT

Already, her sexuality has become part of the cultural conversation about Stewart — this article being no exception, I admit. Whereas Nylon simply went with “Riding Shotgun with Kristen Stewart” for a headline, countless reports about the interview have honed in on her comments about her sexuality, making it the focal point. Some, such as “Kristen Stewart plays coy over sexuality rumors,” made it seem as if she didn’t go far enough in her statement.

This is natural, I suppose, in a world where, as the Advocate explains, before a celebrity like Stewart has officially “come out, “media outlets create “a glossary of queer innuendo that is meant to signal to a reader that a person is gay or in a same-sex relationship, without actually stating it outright.” Their hilarious list of these ways of saying-it-without-saying-it — which includes “tomboy,” “gal pal,” and “sapphic circle” — highlight the absurdity of our need to make Stewart answer the question “What are you?” not for her satisfaction, but for ours.

By phrasing her comments as she did, Stewart turns the question back on the asker, pointedly making us collectively wonder, “Why do we care so much about who she’s sleeping with? What does it change about how we perceive her whether she’s dating a man or a woman?” Those questions, whether we’re talking about a famous movie star or the rest of us, are much harder to answer than a simple word can ever summarize.

In an interview with Beatrice in 1997, writer Jill Nagle said, “Sex is what academics would call oversignified. You can play tennis with a friend without worrying about ‘what it means,’ but you can’t do that with sex.” That quote has stayed with me, because even though in the intervening years, we’ve made a lot of progress in terms of being more knowledgeable and accepting of a variety of sexual orientations, sex acts, and genders, we still want a simple way of framing a topic that’s actually more complex, in many cases, than one word can summarize.

We still get so fixated on who people are screwing we practically salivate over every juicy detail — witness the media frenzy when an interview with Cate Blanchett was edited in a way that implied she’d had sexual relationships with women, followed by her clarification that she hadn’t, actually. Stewart does not want to be a poster child, and her comments, appearing two months after her mother was quoted in the UK’s Sunday Mirror confirming Stewart’s relationship with assistant Alicia Cargile, are a way of making it clear that she takes such fascination with her sexuality as intrusive.

Stewart is also making a larger point about the changing role of labels like gay, lesbian, and bisexual — namely, that for many people, they are beside the point. She went on to tell Nylon, “I think in three or four years, there are going to be a whole lot more people who don’t think it’s necessary to figure out if you’re gay or straight. It’s like, just do your thing.”

We’ve seen numerous similar sentiments in recent pop culture, from people who are proud, unashamed, and not hiding their same-sex attractions and relationships, but don’t want to be defined by them, from Miley Cyrus‘ pronouncements about being gender- and sexually fluid and Raven-Symone’s rejection of the label “gay” (“I want to be labeled a human who loves humans”) to Maria Bello’s embrace of the term “whatever” to describe her sexual orientation and Ilana on Broad City‘s declaration that “I have sex with people different from me.”

In their way, those rejecting sexual labels are offering up a very optimistic point of view, one that presumes that whatever your sexual orientation, you are entitled to explore it and define it for yourself, regardless of what anyone else thinks. This is, of course, true — though it’s vital to note that we haven’t yet reached the point where living either in the ambiguity Stewart praises or as an out gay, lesbian, or bisexual person means you’re free from discrimination.

Stewart’s right to find the questioning off-putting (if you don’t agree, ask yourself if you’d want your every date, kiss or act of holding hands, let alone what you do in bed, obsessively scrutinized). As Sarah Seltzer pointed out at Flavorwire, just as asking celebrities whether they’re feminists has led to an increasingly pointless PR spin cycle, so too does questioning them about their sexuality often come across futile and passé. Seltzer argues it’s in celebs’ best interest to remain as publicly ambiguous about their sexuality as possible, lest they be pigeonholed.

To some extent, I agree, but in Stewart’s case, specifically, her words don’t sound ambiguous. They sound like the opinions of someone who simply feels there are more important things in her public life than her personal relationships.

That’s not to say having out queer celebrities as role models isn’t important; rather, that those who want to take on that responsibility should be able to do so voluntarily, or else it’s pointless — a debate exemplified in the responses to Roxane Gay saying on Twitter that Stewart’s sexuality is not a big deal. Stewart clearly does not want her sex life to precede her acting in the public eye. She doesn’t want her sexuality to oversignified, or even, it seems, brought up at all.

The latter is unlikely to happen, but we can grant Stewart — and by extension, everyone else — the right to define or not define their sex lives as they see fit.

Compton’s Billionaire Buck discusses Kendrick, YG, Big KRIT, Freddie Gibbs, N.W.A. and The West’s Second Coming

As part of my job, I get the chance to listen to sorts of Hip Hop from all regions. But I have no shame in admitting that I have a bias for the West Coast. In my formative years, growing up in Southern California, I remember stealing borrowing a copy of my brother’s Warren G Regulate…G Funk Era and playing it obsessively. When that obsession cooled, I somehow managed to steal borrow a copy of my brother’s All Eyez On Me album.

No Brown Sugar, but a favorite question among Hip Hop heads is “when did you fall in love with Hip Hop? For me, it was hearing Pac for the first time. Born only a few months before NWA released Straight Outta Compton, and being a toddler when classics like The Chronic, Doggystyle, Quik Is The Name, Dogg Food etc. were released, I invested an extraordinary amount of time to studying/admiring/fawning over the masters. In my teenage years, I vividly remember sprinting to my mother’s car after church service to see if Power 106 was playing Shade Shiest’s “Where I Wanna Be” or Westside Connection’s “Connected 4 Life.” Even to this day, there is no genre in the world that captures me quite like So-Cal West Coast Hip Hop.

But as you well know, not long after Dr. Dre’s “Up In Smoke Tour” ended, West Coast music suffered an extended drought, to put it nicely. A few folks like The Game, Xzibit, Rass Kass nobly carried a dying genre for a time with incredibly dope shit, but a small minority can’t keep an entire Coast alive. Some (including myself) thought that the West Coast died the minute the legendary Nate Dogg passed away in 2011.

But alas! Out of no where, the West has risen again to the top of the ranks with a multitude of new shining stars. Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, Nipsey Hussle, YG, Tyler Tha Creator, Problem, Mellowhype, DJ Mustard, Ab-Soul, Earl Sweatshirt, Jay Rock, and many more. Not to mention, the O.G.s of the game like The Game, Snoop, Suga Free, Warren G, Cube, W.C., DJ Quik, and Dr. Dre (who’s recent Compton: A Soundtrack is a classic in my book). With the release of the thrilling Straight Outta Compton movie, the West Coast has definitely gotten its second wind pimp, to quote E-40.

If you’re a music geek like me, you are obsessed with tracking the origins of historic musical movements. It’s crazy to think that a couple of (at the time) regular dudes from Compton (Kendrick, YG, Problem, Billionaire Buck) were inspired to become essentially new niggas wit attitudes, and subsequently put the West Coast back on the map.

ATTENTION: Notice I didn’t mention Tyga, simply because he’s wack as shit. Period. Whenever my Spotify connection is down, and I’m forced to listen to the radio, all I can think about is how incredibly wack Tyga is. Fuck all the talk about Obama’s birth certificate, someone needs to find Tyga’s birth certificate and erase “California” from it– he has no business representing the coast in any shape or form whatsoever. Tyga’s music is so fucking wack that if you were to first play Hotel California and then Doggystyle the wackness is so strong that it has the potential runneth over and ruin a classic, or at the very least cause permanent brain damage as your cerebral cortex scrambles to make sense of the extreme disparity in quality. Some may call me a hater or whatever, but to quote Jay, I call a spade a spade, it just it what is…and what it is is hot garbage that gives me severe migraines when I’m forced to listen.

(These views are completely my own (Kellan Miller’s), and are not at all reflective of Allhiphop as a staff, label, or as a motherfucking crew.). I say that because if Tyga happens to read this and sic his goon squad of 75lb tattooed light-skinned stick figures and Kylie Jenner on me, somehow capturing me and forcing me to listen to all 45 excruciating minutes of The Gold Album, the good colleagues that I work with shouldn’t have to suffer that level of torture. So when I say I’ve been contemplating quitting my journalism career to become a rapper, for the sole purpose of Ja-Ruling/Meek Milling Tyga, these views are completely my own. When I fantasize about creating a diss track that ended Tyga’s career, so the world would be completely rid of a skinny tree tattooed tree fig that luckily got a break when Lil Wayne had a little too much lean when he heard his demo. Inevitably, I would be awarded the Noble Peace Prize for my efforts, and I imagine Eazy-E and Mac Dre would personally rise from the grave to thank me.

But hopefully it won’t come to that, because mark my words, the next California rapper to blow is none other than Compton’s own Billionaire Buck. While he doesn’t yet have the recognition of Kendrick and YG, Buck started to make headway when he released the track “Around Da Way” about a year ago. With hot flows and thumping bass lines (ingredients of a proper Left Coast track), the song instantly became a favorite in my playlist. Watching the video made the song all the much better– featuring Buck walking through the actual streets of Compton, a nice throwback to N.W.A.’s “Straight Outta Compton” video.


At some point after putting the puzzle together, I realized that Buck, Kendrick, YG, and Problem all grew up together, and collaborated with each other back when they barely had a dollar to their name and were just dreaming about making it to the main stage. As you already know, Kendrick has arisen as one of Hip Hop’s most golden voices. When he’s not directing incredible The Wire-like music videos/films, YG is flooding the streets with pure 100% Grade A bangers. ANd with all the recent talk about ghostwriters, it’s worth mentioning that Problem probably ghost-wrote the lyrics to the song you’re smoking a blunt to as we speak, and also keeps DatPiff in business with dope mixtape after mixtape. But after his acclaimed Apollo and Eclipse mixtape series, the Hip Hop world is waiting for Buck’s latest album, The Black Jew, tentatively set for a November release.

Luckily, Buck took a short break from his current tour cycle to chop it up with me about a variety of topics.

How did you, Kendrick, and YG cross paths?

Well, we both from the same neighborhood, so we grew up together. Back in the old days, when we were trying out this rapping shit for the first time, we would all record at the same studio. Then Kendrick got his deal, and started recording in Carson, mostly with the T.D.E. crew.

Now that you guys have gotten some fame and attention, especially in Kendrick’s case, has anyone changed?

Nah. Nobody’s really changed at all. Everyone’s really busy now, which is how it’s supposed to be. We’ll always be homies, but right now it’s like brotherly competition, kinda like what Kendrick was getting at on that “Control” verse. I’m trying to be the best, period.

Is your relationship with Kendrick any different these days?

Nah, we talk all the time. TDE mainly operates on their own, which is why we haven’t really gotten the chance to collaborate yet.

In the past, you’ve talked about how big of an influence Problem had on you.

Problem is smart as hell. He was always on his shit. When we was just young cats with no idea how to make it, Problem had the blueprint mapped out. He knew the game inside and out, and was always ahead of us in terms of making moves. Early on Snoop took him under his wing a little bit and showed him some things. Then Problem turned around and schooled me on a lot things not only about the industry, but the music itself. Most times, Problem would come to the studio with the beat already made and the hook mapped out. In those days we’d be on Limewire stealing beats just to rap to and figure out our styles.

There were rumors of collaborations between you and other artists that never materialized. What happened?

Freddie Gibbs and I were supposed to do some shit together. After meeting at a show, he told me that we should link up and put out a record together. After that I hit that nigga up like 2 weeks later and his phone was disconnected. I ran into him later and he said he was down, but still nothing ever happened. A similar thing happened with Big K.R.I.T. About a year and a half ago I met him, we drank some lean, collaborated on some tracks, but he never put the shit out. But I’m not tripping, it is what it is.

Growing up, what West Coast artist would you say had the biggest influence on you?

DJ Quik. Anybody that knows anything about Hip Hop knows that Quik is a legend. During his career, I feel like he had the wrong people around him handling his business. I’ve done shows with him, you can tell he’s kind of strained and exhausted at this point. He’s definitely given his all and then some to the game.

In addition to E-40, there are rumors of a Quik collaboration on your Black Jew album. Any truth to that?

I’m working on a track with Quik, but it’s taking a while. That’s the thing about the masters of the craft. These days, rappers are in such a rush to get their shit out on Youtube or Datpiff or whatever. Quik is a perfectionist, and won’t put out anything until it meets his standards, even if it takes 10 years or something. It’s the same with Dre. They aren’t just beatmakers, they are producers in the classic sense. Dre treats your voice like an instrument. That’s why his shit with Kendrick is hot, because he makes sure the artists ride the snares like a pattern. It’s the same with Eminem’s shit. Compared to what dudes are doing now in terms of quality in the mix and production, it’s a way different experience.

Aside from your Compton people, who are some of the artists you’re feeling now?

I’m feeling Rick Ross. I like his hustle. It took him a long to blow up to mega stardom. When I see people like that get on, it’s incredibly inspiring and motivating. MMG actually reached out to me about a deal, but I figured I’d more financially stable if I had the chance to own my own material and do things exactly the way I wanted.

What have you learned about the industry over the years?

It’s crazy, and really hard to explain to anyone that’s not a part of it. A lot of rappers that make it to radio are the ones who know the right people. That’s usually what it comes down to in the mainstream. You also gotta have the right people behind you. Kendrick did it the right way, going on the road with Tech N9ne, which eventually lead to an A&R from Aftermath giving him the nod.

Can you describe in one sentence what Black Jew is going to sound like?

It’s going to be N.W.A. mixed with The Roots.

Do you think the current popularity of Compton is just temporary?

Compton is going to be on par for the next decade. You can trust that.

13 Vloggers Who Perfected The Art Of Coming Out On YouTube

 Coming out. We all know what that phrase means. We don’t wonder if someone is “coming out of the bathroom” or if a debutante is “coming out to society” at a ball. “Coming out” is indicative of revealing one’s gay or bisexual sexual orientation to family, friends, the world, and most importantly, to oneself. However, in the past ten years, a new trend with coming out has occurred. People are now coming out on YouTube and they’ve turned “coming out” into an art.

 Coming out on YouTube has involved vloggers sharing a personal vlog of themselves coming out to their viewers. Others have recorded themselves coming out to their parents. With YouTube stars coming out on YouTube, it has provided others with the courage and inspiration to come out to their families and friends, on or off the internet. Furthermore, it provides parents with positive and negative examples of how other parents have reacted to their children coming out.

“Is [coming out on YouTube] creepy or manipulative? Maybe, but I think the impulse of these kids is to leverage better behavior from their parents. If the parents react badly, there are witnesses and social consequences for their reaction. In this situation, I think being strategic is smart and necessary, ” said Dan Savage, gay activist and journalist.

“A positive benefit of this, is that these parents who have reacted so well are modeling for other parents whose kids have not yet come out to them how you do it. If you want to react beautifully and look like a good guy online – this is how.”

Coming out on YouTube is an interesting trend and it shows just how courageous people can be. Furthermore, it allows the world to gather as a community and say, “We accept you.” With that being said, let’s look at some of our all-time favorite vloggers that came out on YouTube and some of the creative ways in which they did it.

HANNAH HART

Hannah Hart is a YouTube star that gained her fame through a series on her YouTube channel, “My Drunk Kitchen,” where she cooked while intoxicated. However, in addition to her main YouTube channel, MyHarto, she has another YouTube channel, YourHarto where she vlogs about her life. On YourHarto Hannah shares with viewers a seven-part“Coming Out” series. In this series Hannah Hart tells her coming out story, as well as discusses topics like coming out of the closet, marriage, being attracted to straight people, feeling nervous around girls she likes, and feeling sexy.

We love this series because it not only discusses “coming out” but different aspects of coming out such as what happens before and after coming out like a first crush, dating, and marriage. Hannah gives viewers an all-around perspective, making this a perfect coming out series for anyone. 

MALLOW 610

Some YouTubers don’t just come out to their viewers, they film themselves coming out to their parents and Dan did just that on his YouTube channel Mallow 610.

Dan hid a camera in his kitchen. When his mother returns home, she can tell that something is going on because of Dan’s apparent nervousness. After two minutes, he finally tells his mother that he’s gay. His mother has the best reaction: she tells Dan that she is proud of him and gives him a hug.

We know why Dan was so nervous, but his mom’s reaction was so amazing! She says that she had some inkling about his sexuality and Googled how to speak to her son about being gay and watched (what she calls “boring”) coming out YouTube videos.

“I need you to be who you are,” says Dan’s mom. “I want you to be happy in life and I want you to not be afraid of who you are.” What a mom!

SHANE DAWSON

Since 2008, Shane Dawson has been creating amazing YouTube videos on his channel Shane Dawson TV. For the most part, Shane has created and shared music video spoofs, comedy sketches, and hilarious vlogs on different aspects of pop culture. However, recently Shane came out of the closet on YouTube and shared with the world that he is bisexual.

He says, “I’m not completely gay. I can’t sit here and say that I am…But I also can’t sit here and say that I’m straight. And this is something that I have come to the conclusion through therapy and also just being honest with myself.

“I am bisexual. I have said it out loud once before…I have never really talked about it until now.”

“There’s a lot of coming out videos of people coming out who are gay or lesbian. And they’re so confident…I’m not that. I don’t know who I am 100 percent.”

Shane’s video is unique in that he is one of the few vloggers to come out as bisexual. He is also bringing attention to how bisexual persons feel—torn between not being gay and not being straight but something in-between. Even more amazing, is that he says he doesn’t know who he is 100%, proving that realizing who you are and accepting your sexuality is a process. For those looking for a strong and raw video of absolute truth, check out Dawson’s coming out video.

INGRID NILSEN 

Ingrid Nilsen, known as Missglamorazzi, is a YouTube personality who discusses makeup, fashion, and lifestyle. She was even the first YouTube personality to represent CoverGirl. And recently, Ingrid came out to her fans on YouTube as gay.

As soon as she announces she’s gay, a huge smile crosses her face, she starts crying, and says, “It feels so good to say.” We can see the heavy burden on her shoulders disappearing.

Her reasoning behind coming out on YouTube is simple: “I deserve a full life…It is time to give myself my best chance.”

The video is moving and you just can’t help but tear up a little when she starts crying! Furthermore, there are important reasons that we love that Ingrid shared with the world that she’s gay. First, not many girls have come out on YouTube and we love that it could be someone with such a huge following like Ingrid, someone who can be influential to many women and girls. Secondly, many have commented that by Ingrid coming out, it has helped to break down lesbian stereotypes and shown the world that there are women and girls who are “femme” and lesbian. Whatever the case is, this coming out vlog is amazing and it will be inspiring to so many girls.

RUSS MARINE

For years, military servicemen and women couldn’t be open about their sexuality under “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” Even after its repeal, it has been difficult for those in the military to be open due to discrimination found in the ranks. However, we hope that things are changing especially with the help of one marine, Russ, who came out on his YouTube channel, Russ Marine, to his mom over the phone.

In addition to that initial coming out video, Russ shares a few other videos related to coming out. There’s one where he interviews his mom about him coming out and another where he discusses the negative reaction that he received from his dad when he came out to him. He also gives coming out tips and talks about coming out in the military.

We love Russ Marine and his coming out videos because not only will it help youth on coming out to their parents and gives them tips on how to deal with both negative and positive reactions, but he also could help other military members to come out and change the military culture to be more accepting of the LGBT community.

JOEY GRACEFFA

Joey Graceffa is a YouTube personality that has been vlogging for seven years. He has been creating vlogs about his life and commentary on the world and pop culture, as well as creating short films. However, it wasn’t until this year that Joey came out to his audiences and he did so in a very creative way: a music video.

The music video features Joey in a fairy tale world, battling his own demons and rescuing his prince which he kisses at the end. A few days after posting the music video, he posted a vlog where he does confirm that he is gay.

When asked why he waited to come out, Joey said, “I wanted to make sure that I was in a mindset that I felt confident in who I was. And I wasn’t going to come out and not able to be this role model for some people out there going through the same thing that I was going through.”

For those looking for a creative way to figure out how to come out, Joey’s music video is perfect: “I decided it was important for me to do it in a different way. To do it in my Joey-creative way of doing a music video.” Better yet, Joey’s music video illustrates that a fairy tale love story is possible for anyone.

CONNOR FRANTA

Connor Franta became known on YouTube through Our2ndLife but branched out and started his own YouTube channel. His vlogs include videos about his personal life and what he’s involved in, challenges, and Q&As. In 2014, Connor came out as gay on his YouTube channel.

Even though Connor says that coming out in a vlog was the hardest thing he has ever done, it’s so difficult to tell. His confidence radiates through his speech and he doesn’t seem to stumble the entire time, because he has finally come to know himself and is happy.

Our favorite aspect of this coming out vlog is when he says: “I’m not going to let my sexuality define or confine me. It’s part of me, it’s not all of me.”

 THE RHODES BROS and THE MONASTERO TWINS

Two of the best coming out videos come from two different sets of twins. First there’s the Monastero Twins, Adam and Luke. The Monastero Twins set up a hidden camera in their kitchen and then told their parents that they were gay. Their parents thought that Luke was gay but didn’t have any idea that their son Adam was gay. The video ends with their parents being absolutely accepting and telling their sons that this is their life to live and they shouldn’t worry about what anyone thinks. 

 Then there’s the Rhodes Bros. Their coming out video involved telling their dad that they were gay over a phone call. The video went viral. It is a truly emotional video that displayed the courage of these two boys and the love that their father has for his sons.

We love these videos because it shows positive examples of how parents of LGBT youth should react when their children come out.

RYAN WAECHTER 

If you want to see a super cool and creative coming out video, check out Ryan Waechter’s! With the “Draw My Life” challenge, Ryan decided to share his coming out story with a white board, dry-erase markers, and his artistic and storytelling skills. Even though he isn’t a Picasso, seeing his coming out story on a white board with quick and crude drawings while he narrates the story is really effective. His coming out story is funny, sad, happy, and ultimately inspiring. We are able to live his coming out story through his drawings and storytelling rather than being told his coming out story which makes for a more entertaining experience. If you are looking for something beyond the “Coming Out YouTube vlog” check this one out by Ryan Waecther now!

LUCAS CRUIKSHANK 

Back in 2008, Lucas created a character called “Fred,” a 6-year-old with anger management issues. The character of Fred took off and Lucas has been creating fun, silly videos ever since. However back in 2013, Lucas was doing a Q&A with his best friend Jenny, when Jenny read a question that had been asked by many of Lucas’ fans (the question pops on screen multiple times by different fans): “Are you gay?”

And Lucas responds enthusiastically, “I’m gay!”

“My family and friends have known for, like, three years, I just haven’t felt the need to announce it on the internet.”

Even though coming out on the internet may seem like a serious thing, as many of the other coming out YouTube videos have shown, Lucas and Jenny are laughing and joking after he comes out. To Lucas (and to Jenny), it’s not a big deal that he is gay. (Because of course it isn’t!) From there, they continue the Q&A session with jokes and laughs which is why we love this video!

Lucas shows that coming out on YouTube isn’t his defining moment. It’s just another aspect of his life. He is a vlogger who just happens to be gay, just like all of the other vloggers we’ve featured in this article.

If we can learn anything from the coming out trend on YouTube, it’s that, yes, coming out is a difficult thing. However, it isn’t a limit in one’s life. These vloggers are extremely successful, but not because of their sexual identity, but by their tenacity to live happy, fulfilling lives as themselves.

Coming out may be the trend on YouTube right now but The Next Family and other LGBT YouTube Personality Parents hope that these YouTube stars and their gay, lesbian, and bisexual audiences can learn something more important from YouTube. Ebony, YouTube star and mom of OliviaHas2Moms, recently had an interview with The Next Family’s editor, Brandy Black at Vidcon. In the interview, Ebony made a good point about the coming out trend: it won’t be the trend for long. A new YouTube trend is on the rise.

“There’s a trend right now only about coming out. Granted, truly valid. Definitely, we need videos and education about coming out. However, when you come out, life begins even more. And you need to know about what happens after the fact. Families are possible, parenting is possible. Jobs, careers, education. All of that needs to be encompassed in a representation of LGBT.”

Alex Temblador is a staff writer for The Next Family, a site for modern parents.

Kylie Jenner’s 18th Birthday Means More NSFW Photos Are Coming

Kylie Kristen Jenner, recent high school graduate, home-owner, reality star and Snapchat queen, turns 18 on Aug. 10. 

It’s a birthday that’s been a longtime coming for a girl whose has been in a rush to grow up, and it has some people feeling a little uneasy — like her older sister Kendall, who posted this NSFWish photo to Instagram on Friday that she captioned, “weekend vibes #KyliesTurning18ImScared.” 

We’re guessing that Kendall is anticipating that as soon as Kylie turns 18 all those NSFWish photos will soon become just NSFW ones. It’s a family tradition, after all. 

It looks like Kylie will be celebrating her birthday for more than a week, since the festivities have apparently just begun and she’s scheduled to celebrate with a party at Beachclub in Pointe-Calumet, Quebec,  on Aug. 16, where the legal drinking age is, you guessed it, 18.

Trump: Megyn Kelly Had ‘Blood Coming Out Of Her … Wherever’

Donald Trump has taken his spat with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly, who asked him tough questions during the first GOP presidential debate, to a whole new level.

“You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her — wherever,” the GOP frontrunner told CNN’s Don Lemon Friday night, referring to his back-and-forth with Kelly, a moderator of Thursday’s debate.

Trump unleashed his blood comment after Lemon asked, “What is it with you and Megyn Kelly?”

Trump, who called in to CNN, labelled Kelly a “lightweight” and unprofessional, telling Lemon, “I can’t believe you’re not beating [Megyn Kelly] in the ratings. You should be ashamed of yourself.”

Trump pronounced himself the victor of the debate, citing a poll by the Drudge Report and articles headlining his name on the front pages of The New York Times and The Washington Post. “What’s better than Drudge?” he asked.

Kelly went toe-to-toe with the brash candidate during Thursday’s main event, challenging Trump on his statements about women and his political creed. “You’ve called women you don’t like ‘fat pigs,’ ‘dogs,’ ‘slobs’ and ‘disgusting animals,'” Kelly charged. 

Trump claimed “only Rosie O’Donnell,” had been the target of his words, and said people were too politically correct these days.

Kelly kept the heat on, which Trump later called “unfair.”

“I’ve been very nice to you, although I could probably maybe not be based on the way you have treated me,” he said during the debate.

In a series of late-night tweets following the debate, Trump went after Kelly again, promoting a message that called  her a “bimbo,” and saying she was the biggest loser in the debate.

Correction: This article has been updated to reflect that Trump retweeted another user that called Kelly a “bimbo,” and had not apparently created the tweet himself.

We Should Build A Wall That Keeps Burning Man Attendees From Coming Home

What separates the burning men from the burning boys, is really nothing, because they’re all awful. This is why we should seriously consider Cultivated Wit’s new proposal to raise $ 7.3 billion to build a wall that’d prevent Burning Man attendees from returning home. 

Perhaps it would be too intense to burn not just the Burning Man man, but also burn all the burning men, so a wall seems like a justified response to the annual wildfire that will continue to rage in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert near the California border starting August 30.

Make Smokey Bear proud and prevent this fire from ever happening again. The proposed wall may only appear to save San Francisco. The wall may also put the rest of the country at risk as burning families are forced to move into new neighborhoods outside of the Bay Area. But California is in drought, and we must band together as a nation to help our fellow Americans overcome this crisis. Sometimes you’ve got to fight fire with over seven billion dollars of concrete.

It’s Official: A Selena Quintanilla MAC Cosmetic Line Is Coming In 2016

Thousands of Selena Quintanilla fans’ hearts exploded as news of a MAC cosmetic line inspired by the slain Tejano singer broke on Thursday morning.

The cosmetic’s company delivered the news to fans via their social media accounts, including Twitter and Instagram.

 The company’s decision comes nearly six months after fans first began to rally online for a MAC collection inspired by the late singer. Las Vegas-based make-up artist and Selena fan José Antonio Figueroa was the catalyst to the movement after he photoshopped an image of Selena on a MAC liptick and posted the photo on Instagram in January.

 The image included the hashtag  #SelenaQuintanillaForMAC and quickly went viral. 

 Patty Rodriguez, a producer for “On Air With Ryan Seacrest,” then started a formal petition on Change.org to make a full collection a reality. Rodriguez initially hoped to recieve 5,000 signatures in support of a limited-edition collection in the singer’s name. By the time MAC announced the line on Thursday morning, the petition had accrued nearly 38,000 signatures. 

MAC originally responded to the petition in April, bringing hope to many with a statement acknowledging the “enthusiasm” of Selena fans and assuring them that all their feedback would be taken into consideration as new collaborations are planned. 

The company came through Thursday morning. 

“The talent and beauty, both physical and internal, of Selena has caused a significant and colorful impact on the world that has continued to grow during the last two decades,” James Gager, Creative Director for MAC James Gager, told People en Español. “We have paid attention to the passion and enthusiasm of her fans and whole heartedly recognize that her legacy personifies MAC’s philosophy.”

Gager also told People that the collection will debut in the second half of 2016.

 Rumors that the company had reached out the Quintanilla’s sister, Suzette, to collaborate on the collection were also confirmed on Thursday. The singer’s sibling and bandmate spoke to People en Español exclusively on the collection. 

“Helping create this collection takes me back to those late night chats on our tour bus, when [Selena] use to talk about some day having her own make up line,” Suzette said as part of her statement to the website.   

 Take a look at some of the ecstatic reactions from fans online:

Jane Lynch Opens Up About (Not) Coming Out And Why She Thinks Some Actors Are Still Closeted

“I didn’t have a coming out moment,” Jane Lynch said matter-of-factly when I spoke with her. The openly lesbian actress had her big career breakthrough at the age of 50, in her role as cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester in “Glee,” for which she won an Emmy Award and a Golden Globe.

“I’m an actor and when people started taking an interest in me, where they wanted to write about me, I didn’t say I wasn’t gay, so — I never had that,” she continued in interview with me on SiriusXM Progress. “And I have to give kudos to people like Melissa Etheridge and k.d lang and Ellen Degeneres and Rosie O’Donnell, all of those people who came before and at the height of their career, when they had a lot to lose, stood up and said this is who I am. And the world kind of went [gasps]…and then, nothing happened. That was really great and they kind of cleared a path for me to just stroll down.”

Lynch stars this fall in a new CBS comedy series, “Angel from Hell,” but she’s currently making the media rounds promoting the third season of NBC’s “Hollywood Game Night,” which debuted this week and which she hosts. The game show pits celebrities against one another, playing party games and winning money for charity. The executive producer is actor Sean Hayes, the former “Will and Grace” star who himself came out as gay in 2010.

“[He’s] a friend and is notorious for his own game nights at his house, where you go from room to room,” Lynch explained, describing how she got involved in the show. ”He makes up the games. He makes up the rules. It was always a really cool, eclectic combination of people. So he had the grand idea — because he’s a big producer now — to bring it to NBC. And they took the bait and he asked me to host.”

Lynch relishes the fact that she and other out actors — many of whom, like Zachary Quinto and Jesse Tyler Ferguson have been contestants on “Hollywood Game Night” — offer visibility to so many young people who are struggling, just by being out.

“There are still parts of the country where it’s hard, when you realize you’re gay, it’s like a death sentence,” she said. “And to give those kids some hope, I love that.”

Lynch appears to disagree with actresses like Ellen Page, who came out last year at the age of 27, declaring that Hollywood is often “eroding your soul” if you’re LGBT, pressuring actors to stay in the closet by telegraphing to them that, “it’s the right thing to do for your career.”

Asked why many actors are still closeted, Lynch replied, “Everybody has their own way to deal with it. I don’t concern myself with other people’s — whether or not they want to come out, it’s not something for me think about.”

And what does it say about the industry that so many feel they must remain in the closet?

“I don’t know what it says,” she responded.”That says more about them than it does about anything, [or], I think, a meta statement to be made. Everybody has their own psychology, their own issues, their own subconscious material. For me to make a broad statement — it’s like outing people. I think that was a horrible thing. You might be dealing with a very fragile part of someone’s psyche. So I think everybody has to go their own path.”

Lynch says she for one wasn’t ever advised that she should stay in the closet for the sake of her career.

“No — never came up,” she said. “And also, you know, it wasn’t the ‘50s and it wasn’t the ‘60s… That’s ridiculous, in this day and age, if somebody’s telling somebody not to [come out]. I know that there are some people who are religious [who stay in the closet]. Perhaps they have issues. Like I said, everybody’s subconscious material is their own stuff.”

These Kit Harington Photos Hint Jon Snow Might Be Coming Back

Kit Harington knows nothing about keeping a secret.

tv show gifs

Image via HBO/HuffPost

The “Game of Thrones” season finale had people everywhere going crazy over what happened to Jon Snow. After the character was stabbed by the Night’s Watch and left to die in the cold (et tu, Olly?), fans went nuts speculating about various ways he may have actually survived. Even so, Harington has maintained that Snow died and he’s gone for good. And that appeared to be the case, until now.

Various pictures of Harington at Wimbledon have started popping up online and there’s one thing about them that has fans getting excited:

Kit Harington still has his long hair!

kit harington

It has been nearly a month since the finale and Harington is still honoring his “GoT” oath to keep his long hair and beard, which seems to indicate that he may still need them for his sworn duties to protect the realm from White Walkers and look like a total boss on the show.

For more proof, just look at Harington’s other photos.

Here’s the actor perhaps in shock that we all caught on:

479198742

And here he is again, seemingly congratulating all of us for figuring it out (good work, everyone!):

479221738

Now, you might think to yourself, “Who cares? That beard is dope. I’d keep my hair like that, too.” And you’re partly right. The beard and hair are hella dope. But the problem is Harington doesn’t seem to think so.

The actor previously told Rolling Stone about his plans after the show and they didn’t include keeping his long locks:

“I told my agent, ‘No more swords, no more horses,'” he said. “You [don’t want to] get stuck in things. And maybe I can cut my fucking hair.”

So is Harington really coming back to the show? It’s all still speculation, but these pictures certainly don’t indicate otherwise. Actress Emilia Clarke even said recently his return is a 50-50 chance.

Plus, if he really doesn’t want people to think he’s coming back, he’s doing a terrible job of hiding his Jon Snow frowny face:

479264852

Like, are you Kittin’ me? Nobody is that frowny. Nobody!

New Web Series ‘Paper Boys’ Delivers Diversity, Charisma and a Magical Twist You Never Saw Coming

I think the unifying theme for every person in their 20’s, regardless of race, religion, or sexual orientation, is that none of us really has a clue what we’re doing. Cole, the main character of Paper Boys, is no exception to this rule. He’s trying to figure out how to land a job he loves (that will also pay the rent in one of the most expensive cities in the world), what to say to his straight best friend Daren who recently confessed he doesn’t want to marry his fiancée, and why he can’t seem to stop himself from stalking an old flame, Max, on Facebook. If all of this wasn’t enough to worry about already, Cole has also discovered that his sketchbook is, well… enchanted. Whatever Cole draws seems to happen in real life, and while this newfound power could be the answer to all his problems, he hasn’t quite figured out if it’s only going to make his life even more complicated.

Written by Curtis Casella and Kyle Cabral (Cabral also directs the series and stars as Cole), Paper Boys is a delightful new web series that takes the sometimes harsh reality of being a confused millennial trying to juggle love, a career, and a new city, and spices it up with a bit of magic to make it all the more captivating. The first two episodes have already generated over 90,000 views on YouTube, and the creators have recently succeeded in raising $ 10,500 via their Kickstarter campaign to create two more full episodes (and are hoping to raise even more to keep the series going).

2015-06-16-1434469763-3496973-paperboys_stills_01.jpg

I caught up with Kyle and Curtis, as well as Henry Lee (who plays Max), Kai Liu (who plays Rebecca), Sarah Elizabeth (who plays Charlie), and Nathan Brown (who plays Daren) over email, and asked them all about the inspiration behind Paper Boys, as well as what we can expect from future episodes:

What do you hope viewers will take away from this series?

Henry: That, for the most part, as fantastical as the notebook element may be, we are showcasing real people who are struggling with the same issues that we all deal with. They’re asking themselves the same questions we all ask ourselves, while trying to figure out where they fit in the world.

Kai: I hope that viewers will notice how diverse we are. The main character is Asian and the sisters are Asian and white. This dynamic is occurring more and more in the world we live in but the media tends to show only homogenous families. I hope we’re helping to create a new normal.

In a lot of ways, Paper Boys is a show about ordinary life for your average millennial, and then you have this element of magic mixed in. What was the inspiration for this part of the story?

Curtis: When we set out to create Paper Boys, we didn’t want to write something that was the same as other shows and web series with gay characters in them, and we ultimately decided on adding in this element of fantasy. We thought the sketchbook was appropriate because it gives Cole a degree of control over his life, which I think many of us millennials don’t always feel we have, especially after the financial crisis. So we wanted to explore questions like whether Cole is better off? Will he be happier?

A lot of people describe Paper Boys as a “gay web series” — this seems to happen a lot when a creator features a minority as a main character; the project becomes niche rather than general, it becomes a “gay web series” rather than just a “web series.” What does Paper Boys do to transcend that label and appeal to the masses?

Curtis: One of the reasons we created the sketchbook was that a lot of gay media is very rooted in reality – Looking, Weekend – and we wanted to tell a story that wasn’t just about being gay, but about a gay character making the discovery that he has this power.

Kyle: We’ll also have more diversity and representation moving forward, so I hope our series does a good job of being inclusive and relatable. I think the mere fact that we have characters that are involved in such complicated relationships – in terms of family, friends, and love – is something that anyone and everyone can relate to regardless of gender, race, age, or sexual orientation.

Once you realized you possessed a magic notebook that made things happen in real life, what would be the first thing you’d draw?

Kai: I would give myself superpowers. Obviously.

Henry: Increase the size of my condo by a bedroom and a bathroom and pay off the mortgage. Boring, but practical.

Sarah: Me and Jennifer Lawrence eating pizza together. Obviously.

Curtis: Paper Boys season two (on HBO?). Or a puppy.

Kyle: I can’t decide between drawing myself as a new mutant member of the X-Men, or sitting in the master suite office of my very own film and animation production studio. Both are practical, I think.

Nathan: …there are too many things I’d want from comic books to say.

South Bend Mayor: Why Coming Out Matters

This post originally appeared on the South Bend Tribune

Any day now, the Supreme Court will issue a decision on same-sex marriage that will directly affect millions of Americans. It comes at a time of growing public acceptance and support for equal rights. But no matter what the Court does, issues of equality are hardly settled across the country. Today, it remains legal in most parts of Indiana (though not South Bend) to fire someone simply for being gay, and bullying still contributes to tragically high suicide rates among LGBT teens.

Still, our country is headed in a clear overall direction, and swiftly. Today, 57 percent of Americans support same-sex marriage; just 15 years ago, the reverse was true. Experiences with friends or family members coming out have helped millions of Americans to see past stereotypes and better understand what being gay is — and is not. Being gay isn’t something you choose, but you do face choices about whether and how to discuss it. For most of our history, most Americans had no idea how many people they knew and cared about were gay.

My high school in South Bend had nearly a thousand students. Statistically, that means that several dozen were gay or lesbian. Yet, when I graduated in 2000, I had yet to encounter a single openly LGBT student there. That’s far less likely to be the case now, as more students come to feel that their families and community will support and care for them no matter what. This is a tremendously positive development: young people who feel support and acceptance will be less likely to harm themselves, and more likely to step into adulthood with mature self-knowledge.

I was well into adulthood before I was prepared to acknowledge the simple fact that I am gay. It took years of struggle and growth for me to recognize that it’s just a fact of life, like having brown hair, and part of who I am.

Putting something this personal on the pages of a newspaper does not come easy. We Midwesterners are instinctively private to begin with, and I’m not used to viewing this as anyone else’s business.

But it’s clear to me that at a moment like this, being more open about it could do some good. For a local student struggling with her sexuality, it might be helpful for an openly gay mayor to send the message that her community will always have a place for her. And for a conservative resident from a different generation, whose unease with social change is partly rooted in the impression that he doesn’t know anyone gay, perhaps a familiar face can be a reminder that we’re all in this together as a community.

‘Final Fantasy VII’ Remake Is Coming To PlayStation 4

Time flies.

More than 18 years after “Final Fantasy VII” debuted on the original Sony PlayStation, a modern remake is coming to PlayStation 4, developer Square Enix announced at a Sony press conference Monday night.

The original game has sold more than 9 million copies since its Japanese debut in early 1997. It proved so popular that it got a straight-to-DVD feature film sequel called “Advent Children,” a prequel video game for the PlayStation Portable called “Crisis Core,” and plenty of other spinoff titles.

Fans have clamored for a remake for newer systems since at least 2005, when the game’s iconic opening sequence was used to showcase the then-upcoming PlayStation 3 hardware.

The “‘Final Fantasy VII” trailer, embedded above and available here, says the game will be available “first” on PlayStation 4, suggesting a possible release on other platforms.

Teen’s Hilarious Senior Quote Puts New Spin On Coming Out Of The Closet

Maxwell Barrett wanted to leave high school “with a bang.” He succeeded.

The 18-year-old senior at Raritan High School in Hazlet, New Jersey, tweeted a screenshot of his yearbook photo and accompanying quote on Tuesday:

The quote, credited to “Unknown,” reads: “Of course I dress well, I didn’t spend all that time in the closet for nothing.”

“I wanted to go out with a bang,” Barrett, who is indeed very snappily dressed in the photo, told The Huffington Post. “I had never done sports, or clubs. I was always just an art student. I wanted to go out in a way people would remember me by!” He added that he didn’t come up with the quote completely on his own, but had rephrased a similar quote he’d seen online.

Barrett said he was “out” as gay to most people around him. Though he had never officially told his parents, he said he could tell that they already knew. “It was just more of a confirmation to [my parents] than a coming-out story,” he said.

And his parents’ reaction?

“They said it was the best one in the yearbook and that they were proud of me,” Barrett said. He mentioned that his classmates also loved it, and that even teachers had pulled him aside to congratulate him and comment on the quote.

Barrett said a yearbook supervisor initially told him they weren’t going to run the quote because of its “shock value.”

However, Hazlet Township Public School Superintendent Bernard Bragen could not confirm that happened.

“My understanding is that it was never pulled,” he said.

HBO Now Is Coming To Google Play And Chromecast

LOS ANGELES (Variety.com) – HBO Now, the premium cable programmer’s standalone streaming service, will be available this summer in the Google Play store for a range of Android devices including Chromecast.

The service — previously available only through Apple TV and Cablevision Systems — will be coming to Google devices in the near future, said Google senior VP Sundar Pichai, who made the announcement at the Google I/O developers conference Thursday in San Francisco. In addition, he said the company will bring HBO Now and HBO Go to the Android TV connected-television platform.

HBO Now, which is priced at $ 15 per month and doesn’t require a pay-TV subscription, will come to Android this summer, according to the cable net. That will include support to cast the service to Android and Apple iOS devices, as well as web browsers on desktops and laptop computers.

“We’re looking forward to expanding our relationship with Google through HBO Now,” Bernadette Aulestia, executive VP of domestic network distribution for HBO, said in a statement. “We have seen through social media that there is great demand for the service among Android and Chromecast users, and we’re excited to deliver HBO Now to them.”

HBO Now offers access to more than 2,000 of the network’s original titles and specials, including every episode of “Game of Thrones” (pictured above), “True Detective,” “Girls,” “Veep,” “True Blood” and “Sex and the City.” HBO Go, its authenticated service for consumers who subscribe through a pay-TV service, provides the very same content.

HBO’s push into the over-the-top space — notwithstanding Cablevision’s participation — has ruffled feathers at big cable and satellite TV providers. That’s because they stand to lose TV subscribers if people opt to pay for HBO Now on an a-la-carte basis. But the Time Warner-owned programmer sees the need to forge ahead on OTT as it faces growing competition from Netflix as a value-added video service.

I’m Coming Out: Underrepresented LGBT Perspectives on HIV/AIDS

I have a butterfly tattoo. There, I said it. I’ve actually been kind of closeted about my tattoos. (I currently have two, to be exact, but I reserve the right to get more!) But there does seem to come a time for everything, even this somewhat silly “coming out” about my tattoos.

As an HIV-positive gay man, I believe that coming out is never-ending. I will hopefully continue to meet new people until my last day. And I will probably come out to them about something–my status, my orientation, my tattoos–every time. I’ve grown to like the process. Not many other moments offer you the chance to educate at the same time you separate the wheat from the chaff.

2015-05-18-1431973419-2745920-POZ204.jpg

So it is with coming out that the things you disclose often aren’t as terrible as you feared, yet the unburdening is even more freeing than you imagined. Such was the case for our cover gals, Whitney Joiner and Alysia Abbott. Each lost her gay dad to AIDS in 1992–and Whitney didn’t know anyone else who had lost a parent to the virus until she met Alysia about 15 years ago.

They stayed in touch, but the years passed by. Then, in 2014, an event co-sponsored by Visual AIDS about the children of parents lost to AIDS spurred Whitney and Alysia to launch the Recollectors, a group dedicated to remembering parents lost to the virus. Click here to read more about the Recollectors and remembrances of their loved ones.

In recognition of June as LGBT Pride Month, in addition to the Recollectors story, this issue includes other sometimes underrepresented LGBT-related perspectives. An essay by gay activist, author and blogger Mark S. King, for example, reflects on his relevance as a long-term survivor in the here and now. Click here to read his journey.

Although it’s arguable that Gay Men’s Health Crisis (GMHC) itself is not underrepresented, it’s undeniable that the concerns of the people GMHC serves often are. Kelsey Louie, the new CEO of GMHC, has lifted those voices in his first year on the job. Arguing for a grassroots push for an HIV cure is a recent example. Click here for our Q&A with Kelsey.

GMHC co-founder Larry Kramer is the subject of a new documentary by Jean Carlomusto. The film marks the occasion of his 80th birthday with an intimate look at his life. Click here to read more about the film, as well as learn more about the role of lesbians like Jean in the history of ACT UP.

In addition to lesbians, other often underrepresented members of the LGBT acronym are bisexuals and trans people. Click here to read Khafre Abif share his story as an HIV-positive African-American bisexual father of two. And here, Kris Hayashi, executive director of the Transgender Law Center, offers insights on inequities faced by trans people.

‘Mad Men’ Shocker: Nobody Saw This Coming

Do not read on unless you’ve seen “The Milk and Honey Route,” the 13th episode of the final season of “Mad Men.”

“I’m not so dumb anymore.” — Pete Campbell

How many of you could write this review for me? A number of folks on Twitter predicted what I’d say — something along the lines of, “Mo! Betty! Can you believe this?!”

And though 140 characters isn’t nearly enough for any of us to truly express ourselves when it comes to “Mad Men,” I knew what people were trying to say. I’ve recently written about how Betty’s such a tangential character that I just don’t see the point of including her. Weiner, you magnificent bastard — you somehow made her the lynchpin of one of the most effective story lines of the show’s denouement. Khaaaan!

I’m not angry, despite my Khan scream — I’m actually impressed. Even at this late date, the show can still surprise me, which is a good thing. I am well known for not having a ton of patience for the character, but when it came to Betty’s imminent demise, creator Matthew Weiner played me like a violin.

First, we have to get the massive irony out of the way. I’m not the only one who was expecting a major character on “Mad Men” to die before the end. Speculation about Pete and even Don has been rampant for years, and I wrote last week that I expected Roger to die, given how much he’s abused his body over the years. Weiner even slipped in a reference to Roger’s heart condition last week, and the man’s alcohol consumption hasn’t let up for a minute. Totems of death have dogged other characters for years, the references to the falling man have also been thick on the ground. The misdirection this season has been pretty masterful.

So nobody expected beautiful, put-together Betty to get an unforgiving death sentence; if anyone is experiencing a precipitous fall, it’s her. But before she goes, she got to deliver her own version of “The Wheel’s” famous Carousel pitch.

“Sally, I always worried about you, because you marched to the beat of your own drum. But now I know that’s good. I know your life will be an adventure. I love you, Mom.”

Ive got to hand it to Betty. She set a new “Mad Men” record for the length of time it takes a character to make me cry. Don usually requires twice as many sentences as Betty needed.

And I have to hand it to January Jones for her line readings in that letter to Sally. Much of it was a business-like list of demands and requirements, but Jones gave the whole thing an air of vulnerability (there was almost a catch in her throat when she asked Sally to show the funeral-home people the picture of her in the blue dress. It’s terrifying to Betty to contemplate the idea that she won’t be in control of her appearance after she’s gone).

Of course, a lot of the reason the scene turned me into jelly was because Sally was a mess; Sally is a great character and it’s awful to see her suffer. But Jones did fine work in this episode, and if this truly is Betty’s final hour on the show, this was an excellent way for her to go out — on the way up (a set of stairs, but she was on an upward trajectory metaphorically as well).

We are really close to the end, and as is so often the case with this show, there are many ways to read this episode interpret the show as a whole. What has anyone learned? Has anyone progressed toward some kind of self-awareness? Can people change? Can these people change, even a little?

Are they “entitled to something more” and “entitled to something new,” or are they just acting entitled?

Months after the series is over, we’ll probably still be debating these questions, and a lot of our interpretations will be projections. We’ll read into the characters’ actions and endings what we want to see, and as I’ve already admitted in this post on what I want from the ending, I want things to go OK for these people. Unlike Betty, she of the practical lists, I’m a big ol’ sentimentalist. Most of the things I’ve written about the show reflect my desire for people — real ones and fictional ones — to learn how to be more compassionate toward themselves and others. I want it to end well for Don and Joan and Peggy and the rest, and for that to happen, these characters may well have to prove that they aren’t so dumb anymore.

Have the three main characters in this episode — Don, Betty, Pete — learned anything? Have they progressed in measurable way? Reflecting my bias, I have to say yes, I think so. Though maybe Don appears to have learned the least of the three because… Don. Hey, at least he didn’t sleep with the hot lady at the swimming pool. Baby steps!

Has Betty learned about herself, has she matured? It’d be difficult to think otherwise. Granted, she was quite child-like when the show began, so she had the furthest to travel, and she can still be quite immature when she’s in a rage. Witness the way Betty brushed past a devastated Sally in the kitchen because Betty was angry at Henry for having gone behind her back and told Sally the news. Never mind the kid in emotional turmoil — cranky Betty must storm out out of the room dramatically!

Here’s how she’s progressed: She knows herself well enough to know that she won’t really change, and she’s willing to stand up for her choices with more vehemence. In the early days, Betty was fairly easy to manipulate, and though she’s always been kind of passive, at this point, she’s willing to defend that passivity as a weirdly pro-active stance. Her obstinacy is a form of rebellion and even independence. Dying her way may be the only independent act of her life — and she finally thinks she deserves that slice of independence.

I think Weiner was going a little too meta when he had Betty defend herself to Sally by saying she has “fought for plenty in [her] life.” Huh? Nope. I don’t buy it. Betty coasted into a marriage with a handsome man who turned out to be a cad, and then she was taken up by another man with a white-knight complex when that first marriage went down the drain. Whatever milieu those men traveled in, she found a way to fit in and yet still get the kind of attention she enjoys. She’s not exactly a go-getter, but I’ve no doubt she would have finished her degree and done well at college. It took her a long time to figure out what she wanted, as opposed to what the men around her wanted, but she finally did, and then that choice got taken away from her. Now she gets to choose; nobody will choose for her.

If Weiner wanted to find the way to redeem the character, the way to do that was to have her final act be selfless — she is determined to spare Sally and her boys the experience of watching their mother suffer through a series of debilitating cancer treatments. For seven seasons, Betty periodically displayed astonishing self-absorbtion, and Henry and Sally weren’t totally wrong about Betty’s penchant for drama and her tendency toward vanity. But I do believe Betty: She learned from experience that watching a parent die slowly is terrifically scarring to kids, and she wasn’t going to let that happen to her family. If Henry doesn’t like it, too bad. What Sally needs takes precedence, and it that sacrifice doesn’t prove Betty has grown, I don’t know what does.

Betty’s come to terms who she is — just in time to die. But before she died, she let Sally know that she loved and accepted her as she was, which … hey, thanks for making me cry a lot on Mother’s Day, Matt Weiner. Great job!

I mean that as a compliment, honestly. I want my favorite shows to break my heart, and “Mad Men” did that in this episode. One of the saddest sights in the history of the show was also one of the quietest: Sally sat in her mother’s chair and put little Gene on her lap. It won’t be long until Sally is those boys’ sister and a mother of sorts, and Sally has already had to comfort a lost and terrified Henry, who will be in no position to take care of anyone else once Betty dies. We know how strong and smart Sally is, but to become the head of the family before she’s even out of high school — that is a lot for any human being to bear.

I need a bottle over here.

Thank goodness we had the contrast of the Pete storyline, which was much more hopeful.

You could make the argument that Pete is merely returning to the status quo of his past — soon he will once again be a rising corporate executive with a smart, socially savvy wife by his side. And let’s be real: Pete, like most characters on “Mad Men,” often resists change. He can be perceptive on certain social and cultural issues, but when it comes to altering his own life, he’s pretty change-averse. He’s still wearing the kind of old-fashioned three-piece suit that even Roger has largely given up, for goodness’ sake.

Still, Pete can adapt. He’s clearly in his element at McCann (unlike most of his former colleagues), but in his personal life, he’s been drifting. Duck Phillips might not be good for much, aside from draining a bottle and racking up expensive dinners, but at least he got Pete to stop being passive about the end of his marriage. Pete certainly deserved his time in the wilderness (and more) for his past transgressions, but if good fortune was falling his way, why not use that mojo to get Trudy back once and for all?

Their reunion certainly didn’t seem arbitrary: Though we haven’t seen them together a ton since they divorced, the actors and the characters have such an easy, familiar connection that their reconciliation scene absolutely worked. When Pete’s voice caught during his speech to Trudy, I almost teared up a little — when Pete’s sitting on a couch being extra-sincere, that is very difficult to resist. If this is Pete’s happy ending — taking Trudy out of sour, cliquish Cos Cob and starting over in Kansas — well, why the hell not? May he find many a MacDonald to punch in the glorious Midwest.

As for the Don storyline, well, sure. Why not spend several days with a would-be grifter and other small-town folk who turn out to be far less folksy than they appear? Who wasn’t dying for an installment of “Don Draper: Typewriter Repair Man”?

My husband’s response to the Don story was, “I’m really kind of over Don spending time with people we’ve never met before.” And I get that, though I didn’t have a serious issue with Don’s hobo jaunt. It’s very clear that “Mad Men” is going to do things on its own timetable and in its own way, and if it supplies great episodes like “Time and Life” and “Lost Horizon” along the way, I’m cool with whatever. Diversions and digressions are to be expected. This week, I wasn’t surprised that Duck was back; I was only surprised that we didn’t get a meaty cameo from Chauncey the dog.

Once again, Don confessed a truth about his past, and at this point, it feels like maybe the only people who don’t know the truth about Don/Dick’s past reside in deepest Siberia? But hey, Don, if you need to unburden again, go ahead and tell the farmers and ranchers the truth about your not-glorious war service. These confessions tend to have less and less impact over time, but if, in the end, they allow him to grow/change/accept himself/blah blah, it’s all good.

Of course, because this is Don Draper, he got beat up in the process of unburdening his soul. We all half-expected that too, right?

That said, in classic “Mad Men” style, the entire episode thrummed with tension once Betty fell on the stairs and the ER doctor wore his Concerned Face. All of Don’s scenes were undergirded with the tension that came from wanting to shout, “Don, you nitwit, get home to your children, who are going through or about to go through a tremendous, harrowing crisis! Stop reading books and ogling pool babes and get back to New York! Your kids will soon be as motherless and lost as you were. Stop getting drunk in one-stoplight towns!”

But Draper’s gonna Draper. He took the fall for another guy (just as his commanding officer bit the dust so Dick Whitman could become Don Draper). Progress for Don, perhaps, is in correcting the grammar of a scheming rural con man and helping that young man become a better class of grifter. And then, when his daughter needs him most, Don gives away his car and ends up sitting by a lonely road, in the middle of America, pretty much in the middle of nowhere. Mentally and physically, he could not be more checked out of his life. I hope he enjoys the break, because he really needs to bring his A game when he gets back to New York. He may still be rich, but drifting is an option he no longer has.

Speaking of the car, that gift represents a tremendous piece of luck for that kid — but luck only gets you so far. If anything, this episode was a meditation on the following idea: What’s luck got to do with it? Not much, ultimately. Duck’s assertions are the ravings of a drunk and thus not anything to take too seriously. Life is full of good and bad luck — it’s all about what you do with it that matters.

Years of hard work have paid off for Pete, and now he’s gotten a great opportunity that will probably pay of even more handsomely down the road. But his reconciliation with Trudy didn’t just happen — he had to take a chance and try to make it happen. He might just as easily have struck out, but this time, his pitch worked. That wasn’t about luck, that was about, as Joan put it a few weeks ago, going down swinging.

As Henry pointed out, Betty had been tremendously fortunate all her life, but her luck ran out all at once — but she still found a way to direct and partially control the situation. She put her blue dress in the gold garment bag and she put the correct lipstick in her purse. She knew what her daughter needed to be told, and she knew that she couldn’t control anything else, so she didn’t try to. She remained chilly and distant in her behavior, but her heart and her will had evolved. Sally knew she was loved, and that wasn’t by chance.

There’s no way to see what’s happening to Betty and her family as anything but wrenching and sad, but if Sally survives this epic run of bad luck, she’ll be able to survive anything. And if she takes her chances and runs with them, her life will be an adventure. Young Sally will end up making a lot of her own luck, I think.

What chance will Don make for himself going forward? Who knows? I don’t expect the last episode of the show to depict him rolling around Oklahoma like a tumbleweed, but who knows? This show, as I’ve said, loves to zig when we expect it to zag, so the future is as unclear as ever. However, I don’t think Don will end up in California. I predict Pete will line up a Lear jet so that Don can swing over from Oklahoma to Wichita and get back home to his family as quickly as possible.

After that, it’s up to Don. In the end, all I really want before the end is to see him connect in a real way with Sally and Peggy. And to have enough awareness to realize that he’s lucky they’re both in his life.

A penultimate hail of bullets:

  • Don could have worked for Coke at McCann or fixed a Coke machine at a motel. Neither option, in the end, was all that attractive.
  • Something about the mildly catty way Trudy offered her friend an apple amused me. Something something Garden of Eden/tree of life/temptation etc.
  • Maybe the biggest sign of growth for Betty (aside from her calm acceptance of her daughter’s independence) is the fact that she found the “Mrs. Robinson” joke funny. If Betty hadn’t evolved beyond the petulant version of her that we saw in previous seasons, it’s likely she would have been perturbed at someone implying that she was an “older” woman.
  • Once again, men discuss Betty’s life without even talking to her directly, all of which makes it even more understandable that she would make her own decisions without consulting them. If they’re going to ignore her, she can play that game as well — and I don’t blame her for ignoring men who treated her like a broken wind-up doll.
  • The pool babe was reading “The Woman of Rome,” a shout-out to Don and Betty’s trip to that city. Another book in Don’s room: “Hawaii,” a shout-out to his trip to that place with Megan. Maybe his reading of “The Godfather” was a veiled reference to Jim Hobart?
  • No Peggy or Joan or Roger in this episode. I want lots of them next week. And Stan!
  • As Floyd the veteran, that was veteran character actor Max Gail, who was so great as Wojo on “Barney Miller.”
  • I really expected Floyd’s war story to end with an admission of cannibalism. Gail was great as Floyd, but it wasn’t a great war story, in the end.
  • “I think it feels good and then it doesn’t.” In nine words, Pete Campbell sums of every the psychological journey of every core character on “Mad Men.”
  • So Pete’s brother is a chick magnet? Um, what? OK.
  • Here’s some info about hobo culture, which gave rise to the title of the episode. The link comes from Fairfield University — which is where Betty was pursuing her degree.
  • Irony alert: Don lectures Sally on the fact that she’s careless with money. AND THEN HE GIVES AWAY A CADILLAC AUTOMOBILE.
  • The date on Betty’s note was Oct. 3, 1970, which means the likely time frame of the finale is November or December. The holidays are always so fun for the Drapers! Anyway, I don’t think “Mad Men” will continue into 1971, unless it’s a very brief New Year’s scene. But what do I know? Not a damn thing. And I can’t believe this is almost over!
  • Ryan McGee and I have discussed recent “Mad Men” episodes on the Talking TV podcast. We will discuss “The Milk and Honey Route: with a special guest on Tuesday — check the podcast page late that day for the latest episodic discussion, which I think you will enjoy!

High Maintenance Is Coming to HBO: 5 Other Web Series We’d Like to See on TV

High Maintenance HBO

HBO has announced that it plans to air six new episodes of the popular Web series High Maintenance. Created by married couple Katja Blichfeld and Ben Sinclair, the show follows Sinclair, known only as “the guy,” around New York City as he sells weed to a cast of absurd but instantly recognizable characters.

“We have been growing this show organically for three years now, and we are elated to bring it into full maturity at HBO,” Blichfeld and Sinclair said in a statement. The acquisition certainly means better resources for the show: The first nineteen episodes of High Maintenance were produced on a shoestring, with most of the cast and crew lending their services for next to nothing. We’re excited to see what new plotlines emerge from a bigger budget. In the meantime, here are five other series we’d love to see reach “maturity.”

The Outs
The Outs is pretty much everything that HBO’s Looking wanted to be. Adam Goldman, who stars in the show as the lovelorn Mitchell, created it and funded it through two separate Kickstarter campaigns. The project has been dormant since 2013, but a network rework could be just the thing to bring the project back to life.

The Nekci Menij Show
The Nekci Menij Show might not be for everyone, but that’s part of its great appeal. It’s a mile-a-minute cartoon filled with jokes for pop-music fanatics with a teenage sense of humor. It would be a perfect fit in a late-night lineup like Adult Swim’s or Fuse’s.

Fuck, That’s Delicious
Rapper Action Bronson stars in Vice’s Fuck, That’s Delicious, a show about traveling around the world and eating everything in sight. Think Anthony Bourdain with more cursing and a lot more eating. This could be Food Network’s first truly edgy show.

Desus vs. Mero
Desus Nice and The Kid Mero are two Internet comedians who like to talk about celebrities, music, and sports, but might just slip in a joke or two about Middle Eastern politics. Although they’re both currently starring in the ensemble cast of MTV2′s Joking Off, a network like ESPN would be smart to give these guys a show of their own.

Chloë
Real life Chloë Sevigny may be the human personification of cool, but in comedian Drew Droege’s Web series, Chloë, she’s totally bizarre. Droege plays a fictionalized version of Sevigny that discovers cultural gems like “Pittsburgh” and “cooking.” It’s a weird concept, but would find a great home at IFC as a great Surrealist companion to Portlandia. This one might be too weird for TV, but maybe too weird is exactly what TV needs.
