A new film called Desire of the Everlasting Hills follows two gay men and a lesbian who have decided to be chaste in the name of Christianity. You can watch it for free online because it’s propaganda and they are trying to recruit you into hating yourself.

A 29-year-old personal trainer named Andrea Lopez appeared on Naked and Afraid this week, and she was nervous about coming out to her straight male survivalist partner in Namibia. But what happened was actually pretty awesome.

Margaret Cho talks bisexuality with the Dallas Voice.

“Bisexuality is considered one foot out, one foot in. You don’t qualify as gay all the time. There’s this element of distrust. Visibility is very important for the trans community because of the suicide rate of teenagers and the violence that goes underreported and the disappearance of trans women all over the place. There’s not been a lot of rage about that because people didn’t know.

Now, there’s more of an understanding and it’s not acceptable anymore, so I think that’s wonderful. I would love to see that for the bisexual community, but I also have an understanding too. I get it because I started as a lesbian and then realized that there was more to my sexuality than I realized. I thought I was being very free and very out, but there was more to the story. It’s hard; I felt like, ‘Am I going through a phase?’ You always question yourself in the bisexual community. You don’t really know.”

Ellen Page and Julianne Moore talked with Collider about Freeheld.

BBC’s out newsreader Jane Hill praised Cara Delevingne for being out and in the public eye

“When I was growing up, I had terrible struggles with who I was. It was hugely difficult for me. I didn’t know any lesbians. I didn’t see any gay women in the media in magazines. It wasn’t talked about it, it wasn’t part of the conversation. What I think is truly incredible is that I now look in a magazine and I see Cara Delevingne, this beautiful model, just completely relaxed about who she is and not trying to hide it, not being secretive.”
