I actually did an “It Gets Better” video but I realized I don’t know what it is like to be bullied or want to commit suicide and decided against it. While on Twitter this morning I came across this video of Fort Worth City Councilman Joel Burns retelling his personal story and I was touched in a way I rarely am.

Glee 1/18 Preview Dream On
Buffy Creator Stakes Glee Director Job
Joss Whedon Direct Dream On Episode of Glee
I’m a huge Joss Whedon fan, so when I heard he was directing the newest episode of Glee (a show I find amusing but usually fast forward through the singing) I was stoked. I loved the Buffy “Once More With Feeling” episode and Neil Patrick Harris is all sort of awesome. I don’t think I’ve been this excited about a Fox tv show since Fringe’s mid-season return.

I was recently trolling the intrawebz when I came across something that not only excited the comic book geek in me but the gay fashionista in me (not that I’m fashion forward or anything).
“Superheroes” explores the visual iconography of comic book superheroes, as well as their role as symbols for social and political realities even as reflected in the fashion industry. The exhibit features designs of clothing that are use to alter the human body, be it functional or a purely fantastic clothing.”
While I’m not a huge fan of the Dark Phoenix/Black Queen (yes that is who that is suppose to be) or the Iron-Man one (he just looks silly), I love the Wonder Woman one! I think even more so because it’s ANTM Cycle 7 winner, Jaslene Gonzalez modeling the outfit (bitch you better work!). FIERCE!

Alternate link – Beyonce – Video Phone (Featuring Lady Gaga)
I’m usually not a fan of pop music but in the last few weeks I’ve completely falling in love with the magically queer Lady Gaga. Beyonce has always been a secret favorite of mine but Lady Gaga’s freakish nature and overly dragginess has made me a fan of her (her music is still another story completely).
My only problem with this video is the lack of video phoneiness and a cohesive idea – it just seems really random and not the usual Lady Gaga randominess.
Also despite what people say I still believe Lady Gaga’s got both. I think this image proves my point:
Lady Gaga looks like a Hermaphrodite
