Darren Criss, Jane Lynch, Neil Patrick Harris in new NSFW Rock the Vote ad -- VIDEO

“This election, there are a lot of really important decisions being made that affect marginalized groups in big ways,” Jesse Tyler Ferguson declares in a new Rock The Vote ad.

“Thank you, Jesse. Which is why, as an openly straight man, I implore you to think about people like me as you cast your ballot,” Ferguson’s co-star on Modern Family and recent Emmy-winner Eric Stonestreet continues.

What follows is a whole host of celebrities giving you their best reasons to vote on Nov. 6. Kathy Griffin reminds us that everyone at a polling place is over 18, which means they’re legal. Joel McHale votes because he’s not “a motherf***ing communist” and Jane Lynch tells us that casting a ballot is the best decision you can make. A close second? Getting a One Direction tattoo, like Lynch did.

Want to know who’s proud to be an American because of Ryan Gosling (even though he’s Canadian)? Check out the full NSFW ad below: READ FULL STORY

Bret Easton Ellis thought it would be a good idea to defend Paris Hilton

When somebody calls gay people “disgusting” and says that “most of them probably have AIDS,” the natural human reaction is to agree with them.

Wait — no it isn’t! So what the heck is up with Bret Easton Ellis?

Over the weekend, the controversial writer sent a controversial pair of controversial tweets: “I kind of agree with Paris Hilton,” followed by “As someone who has used Grindr? Paris Hilton isn’t that far off.”

But this isn’t the first time Ellis has antagonized the gay community on Twitter.  READ FULL STORY

'The New Normal' episode 3: Everyone's a bigot

They look happy to your right because this trio’s baby has a heartbeat — huzzah! — but the bulk of “Baby Clothes” involved aggression and tears. You see, everyone in this crazy mixed-up world is different, and so they hate each other.

In tonight’s third episode of The New Normal — brought to you by Pinkberry, Marc Jacobs, Dolce and Gabbana, and Equinox — Bryan and David run into a bigot in an outlet mall. This bigot is a great big terror in a polo shirt who asks them to stop kissing (in the interest of “trying to protect my family”) and calls the idea of Bryan and David having a baby “disgusting.” Bryan and David head home to have a heart-to-heart about bringing a baby into “a world where idiot people are trained to hate what we do.” There are tears, and it is dire. No one wants their family members to suffer, but how can kids be protected when hate is all around? READ FULL STORY

Rupert Everett has made a stir with his thoughts on gay parenting.

The 53-year-old gay actor, whose films include Shakespeare in Love and My Best Friend’s Wedding, told the Sunday Times Magazine that he “can’t think of anything worse than being brought up by two gay dads… Some people might not agree with that. Fine! That’s just my opinion,” the Huffington Post reports.

He attempted to temper the comment by adding, “I’m not speaking on behalf of the gay community. In fact, I don’t feel like I’m part of any ‘community.’ The only community I belong to is humanity and we’ve got too many children on the planet, so it’s good not to have more.” READ FULL STORY

A gay 'Sex and the City'? New web series 'Hunting Season' tackles sex lives of gay New Yorkers -- EXCLUSIVE CLIP

hunting-season-exclusive

It was bound to happen sooner or later: An update of Sex and the City that delves into the sexual exploits of gay New Yorkers. The new web series Hunting Season features a group of friends, many of whom are gay, as they navigate their love and sex lives in New York City. It’s based on the blog “The Great Cock Hunt,” which from 2005 to 2008 chronicled the love life of hot gay stud “Alex.” The site was followed up with a novel in 2008 about Alex’s college days. In Hunting Season, Alex is played by actor Ben Baur, who has appeared on Nip/Tuck and Happily Divorced.

Check out the EW exclusive clip below. It’s the opening two minutes of the first episode — a rare mostly-SFW segment of the show, which otherwise promises the same level of skin-bearing as its HBO-series inspiration (yes, that means full-frontal nudity). READ FULL STORY

'Modern Family' creator invites Ann Romney to officiate Mitch and Cam's wedding -- once it's legal

Could next season of Modern Family feature television’s first dressage-themed gay wedding?

First Lady nominee Ann Romney recently told Entertainment Tonight that Modern Family is her favorite TV show. ModFam co-creator Steve Levitan got wind of Romney’s praise and posted a reaction on his Twitter page yesterday: “Thrilled Ann Romney says ModFam is her favorite show. We’ll offer her the role of officiant at Mitch & Cam’s wedding. As soon as it’s legal.”

Sounds perfect! I can see it now: The grooms take turns riding elaborately dressed stallions down a rose petal-strewn aisle. At the end of it, Ann Romney waits, proudly posed atop Rafalca. Before the “I do”s, Luke accidentally sets Claire’s hair on fire and Hayley and Dylan are caught making out in a tucked-away vestibule. Gloria yells. Lily stares. Manny folds his handkerchief into a perfect pocket square. Alex rolls her eyes.

There’s just one problem here: Like her husband Mitt, Romney doesn’t believe in marriage equality.  READ FULL STORY

Bret Easton Ellis sees no shades of grey in latest gay actor flap

Now that Bret Easton Ellis has conceded that he wasn’t chosen to write the screen adaptation to Fifty Shades of Grey, you may have thought that his hyperactive tweets about E L James’ best-seller, the upcoming movie, his casting thoughts, his first choice for director, more of his casting thoughts, would finally subside. But Ellis has not gone quietly. On Wednesday, he followed up his announcement that the film’s producers were no longer considering him by provoking fans with a string of tweets that claimed Matt Bomer could never be cast as Christian Grey, the controlling sexual dynamo who opens Anastasia Steele’s eyes to kinky pleasures of the flesh in James’ novels. Ellis’ reason? “Okay I’ll say it. Matt Bomer isn’t right for Christian Grey because he is openly gay. He’s great for other roles but this is too big a game,” he argued in one tweet. “I am NOT discriminating Matt Bomer because of his sexuality. Fifty Shades of Grey demands an actor that is genuinely into women. Get it?!?,” he said in another. READ FULL STORY
