Evan Rachel Wood Bisexual, Ellen Page and Laverne Cox Learn What A Purrito Is This Sunday Funday

Happy Sunday Funday, queermos! As I pack my succulent plant and a pair of slippers for my office in preparation for the hellish time of the week that is Monday, I’m gonna need some positive energy. So let’s do this thing!

Evan Rachel Wood Bisexual and Ellen Page Are Totally In Love, JK

Queers that film together stick together. Like, really close together. And for the world to see.

Jesus to Compete in Gay Games, Is Proud of His Two Dads


The United Church of Christ has become the first-ever religious sponsor of the Gay Games, which gives them one more notch on their “Church of Firsts” belt. This also probably adds a dimension for anyone who considers sporting events to be “a religious experience.”

Uganda’s First Pride Parade!

Since the shitty law holding them back is (likely temporarily) invalid, the queers of Uganda are coming out in force.

Sandra Ntebi, organiser of the rally held on Saturday in Entebbe, 35km from the capital Kampala, said police had granted permission for the invitation-only “Uganda Pride” event.

“This event is to bring us together. Everyone was in hiding before because of the anti-homosexuality law,” she said. “It is a happy day for all of us, getting together.”

…”Since I discovered I was gay I feared coming out, but now I have the courage after the law was thrown out,” said Alex Musoke, one of more than 100 people at the event.

  1. If I met a genie who only granted me one wish, I would have a reaaaaalllyyy hard time choosing between having Evan Rachel Wood and Ellen Page make out with each other and a cat wrapped up like a burrito.

    Thank Goddess most genies give three wishes.

  2. Ohmygosh omygosh I use to do that to the first litter of kittens my family fostered Pre-Katrina. One of them actually loved it, Jerry the super floofy one. Never knew there was a cute little portmanteau for ittt. *melts*

  3. I used to have a cat who could be quite aggressive when he wanted to be, and one day I had to take him to the vet but I couldn’t for the life of me get him into his box. I have a scar on my thigh to prove it. So I called the vet and said I’d be 10 minutes late, then donned my motorbike gloves and wrapped him in a towel in a very similar style to that picture. I walked there carrying him like that, must have looked quite amusing. :)
