Gay Star News Round-up: No gay Jonas brother; Rosie blasts GOP field; Details of new GLSEN study
Busy day over at Gay Star News and I want to make sure you can easily access some of the items I’ve written over there.
(By the way, after a six-week Beta testing period, GSN had its “official” launch on Monday and we are posting LGBT news from all around the world 24-7).
Anyway, be sure to read about Nick Jonas who on Jan. 24 will replace Darren Criss in the lead role in Broadway’s How to Succeed In Business Without Really Trying. Nick made his Broadway debut at age 8 and became well aware of gay people back then. He was asked by The Advocate what it would mean to their career if one of the Jonas Brothers were to be gay and Nick makes clear that would never happen because none of them are gay. Read more HERE.
Did you watch Rosie O’Donnell being interviewed by Piers Morgan last night for the full hour? I sure did and found Rosie to be in a really good place – being in love will do that! She has lost 16 pounds since November by eating more sensibly and putting in some time on the treadmill. She also has some things to say about all the anti-gay rhetoric coming out of the mouths of Republican presidential contenders Rick Santorum, Rick Perry, Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney and Michele Bachman before she dropped out. Read what she had to say about it HERE.
Also see pieces I wrote on GLSEN’s new study about bullying in elementary schools and how unprepared teachers are to deal with kids who have gay parents or boys who look and behave more like girls and girls who look and behave more like boys. Read more about it HERE.
And finally, it’s so great to see that some of the highest-profile mayors in the U.S. rallying behind same-sex marriage this weekend in Washington D.C. Read more about it HERE.
