Luke Evans On Coming Out; Chechen Leaders Threaten Journalists Reporting On Gay Concentration Camps; Butter Boy Lube Ad Banned In Chicago

Luke Evans On Coming Out

With so many in Hollywood still in the closet, terrified that if they come out their careers will be ruined, I find this story remarkable, and spot on.

Luke Evans believes his sexuality has never held him back in his career.

The Beauty and the Beast star said since coming out 15 years ago hasn’t negatively affected his career.

And that’s the way things should be, according to Evans.

You can check this out here. There's a lot more. I actually do think it all comes down to talent.

Chechen Leaders Threaten Journalists Reporting On Gay Concentration Camps

Here's more about the situation on Chechnya...according to this source.

 Chechen authorities have threatened journalists reporting on the news of concentration camps for gay men.


The Russian publication that broke the news, Novaya Gazeta, believes its employees are now under threat.

In a statement, they wrote: ‘We have serious concerns for the safety of our employees.’

Here's the rest. I'd like to know why we aren't hearing more about this from the mainstream media. At least something.

Butter Boy Lube Ad Banned In Chicago

Here's one about a lube called Butter Boy that's being advertised on the TV show RuPaul's Drag Race. I've never heard of it and I don't watch much RuPaul's Drag Race.

 The owner of the lubricant brand says a commercial is currently airing during Rupaul’s Drag Race in New York City, Los Angeles, San Diego and throughout Canada has been banned from airing on cable TV in Chicago.

The spot features sexy ginger stud Seth Fornea showing viewers how to properly use a butter churn.

There's more here. I haven't seen it so I can't comment. But from what I gather the intention behind the commercial was to make it like one of those heteronormative Super Bowl ads and keep it as PG rated as possible. The problem with that is people still think anything gay related is for adults only.


Imperfect
