Retired NFL player Jeff Rohrer comes out as gay man and he’s marrying his boyfriend this weekend

Kudos to former Dallas Cowboys linebacker Jeff Rohrer who has come out publicly in interviews with Outsports and The New York Times.

Rohner, 59, will marry his boyfriend of two-plus years, Joshua Ross, on Sunday.

Over the course of his six seasons in the NFL, Rohner started 41 games for legendary Cowboys coach Tom Landry. He racked up 7.5 sacks and four fumble recoveries, all in his final four seasons.

“I’m sure there’s going to be some people out there who have a negative reaction to this,” Rohrer told The Times, “and I’m fine with it.”

“If I had told the Dallas Cowboys in the 1980s that I was gay, I would have been cut immediately,” he added. “It was a different world back then, people didn’t want to hear that.”

When asked why it took him so long to reveal his truth, Rohrer said, “people are born gay, as I was, though being gay was just something that had no place during the course of my football life.

“But when I got divorced, I said the hell with it, I’m going to do what I’ve always wanted to do,” he said. “Then I found Josh, and began to openly live the life I was born to live.”

Documentary “A Long Road to Freedom: The Advocate Celebrates 50 Years” begins 20-city theatrical release

Following its world premiere at Outfest 2018, the critically acclaimed Here TV Original documentary, A Long Road to Freedom: The Advocate Celebrates 50 Years hits theaters this month – including a Q&A and screening tonight in North Hollywood!

Directed by Billy Clift and produced by Emmy-nominated actor-producer David Millbern, the documentary will have a 20-city theatrical release including Los Angeles, Palm Springs, and Seattle.

Narrated by Laverne Cox with music by Melissa Etheridge, this moving feature-length documentary focuses on watershed moments in LGBTQ history through never-before-seen footage and engaging interviews with former NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt, Caitlyn Jenner, Don Lemon, Gloria Allred, Gavin Newsom, Dustin Lance Black, Margaret Cho, Armistead Maupin, Bruce Vilanch, Greg Louganis, DeRay Mckesson, Candis Cayne, Guillermo Diaz, and many more.

Starting with the Black Cat Riots, the film covers Stonewall, the disco sexual revolution, the AIDS crisis, marriage equality, and the trans movement to present day.

“This documentary lays out a clear path of resistance that resides in the DNA of the LGBTQ community,” says Millbern. “It demonstrates that with courage and resilience, we can conquer any foe. As bad as things may seem currently, we have been here before. We hope that this film not only educates but serves as a call to action for a new generation of activists.”

Upcoming Limited Release Theatrical Dates include:
November 13 – Los Angeles (Laemmle NOHO 7): https://www.laemmle.com/index.php

All-star tribute to Craig Zadan included J-Hud, Hilty, Bernadette, Audra, Chenoweth, Zellweger, Stamos, Connick Jr. & more!

A tribute to the life and career of late, great Craig Zadan – the prolific film, TV and Broadway producer – took place over the weekend at the Television Academy’s Wolf Theatre.

It looked like it was a show for the ages.

Here is an except from Deadline Hollywood’s Pete Hammond’s story detailing the evening:

Let’s face it, when you have a murderer’s row of incomparable talents like Kristen Chenoweth doing a duet with Sean Hayes from their Broadway teaming in the Zadan-Meron production Promises Promises, followed by her lilting solo of “Til There Was You” from The Music Man, in which she fought to stop the tears; then Amber Riley bringing down the house with a soaring “Home” from The Wiz; directly into Broadway superstar Bernadette Peters and her poignant rendition of the Sondheim song “With So Little To Be Sure Of” from Anyone Can Whistle; into Audra McDonald’s inspiring and powerful “Climb Every Mountain” from The Sound of Music ; and followed shortly by Jennifer Hudson and choir’s roof-raising Hairspray anthem “I Know Where I’ve Been” — with all receiving standing ovation after standing ovation — then you know you are witnessing something very rare and special in this business.

Thomas Roberts has donated $25,000 he made for hosting Miss Universe pageant in 2013 to HRC

TV newsman Thomas Roberts posted this on social media today:

Five Years Ago I was in Russia to host Miss Universe.

At that time the Miss Universe Organization was jointly owned by my former employer, NBCUniversal and the Trump Organization.

The first place I met Donald Trump was in Moscow.

I made $25,000 for that job. In light of recent events over the last two years I have committed my entire paycheck to the Human Rights Campaign. #HRC

Viola Davis pushed for Annalise’s sexual fluidity on HTGAWM after being inspired by Jazz Jennings

Viola Davis, the brilliant Oscar, Emmy, and Tony award winning actress, has done an interview with PrideSource and in it talks about her journey to LGBTQ acceptance, finding her power, and about why she is done with playing maids.

But the part of the interview that jumped out to me the most was when she explained how the sexual fluidity of her How to Get Away With Murder character came to be:

“I had everything to do with that. And so did (creator) Pete Nowak; I can’t leave him out. I really have to give him credit for that too. But yeah, absolutely. And also, “I Am Jazz”: I was watching that one night. I love that show. But I was watching that one night and (trans TV star and model Jazz Jennings) was playing in the closet with one of her friends who was a trans teenager, and it was just great. They were talking about who they see themselves with in the future, and they were like, “Whoever, you know. I’m open. I’m open to a boy, I’m open to a girl.” And they started talking about just the attributes of the people they wanted to be with.

That transformed me more than anything. I thought, “That is the greatest thing in the world,” and I thought that that was a great idea for Annalise because Annalise is so damaged, so traumatized that what if she just said, “I’m just open to love”? God, think about what we can explore there.”

Sarah Jessica Parker on “L.A. Story,” “Honeymoon in Vegas,” Hocus Pocus” & other film roles


Over the weekend, I saw Jessica Jessica Parker’s new movie Here and Now which I would have to proclaim an interesting failure. I didn’t totally buy her as a doomed jazz singer but I still love watching her, as always.

But with the Sex and the City movie franchise now officially dead (thanks a lot Kim Cattrall!), SJP has to move on which she has with her current HBI series Divorce which has been renewed for a third season.

In this video, SPJ talks about some of her most famous film roles which include L.A. Story, Honeymoon in Vegas, and Hocus Pocus, among others.
