• KIT212: Kenneth wonders as to how much ‘seasonal sentiment’ is really attached to some InstaHunky posts like the above pic from Arrow star Stephen Amell?
• Boy Culture: Matt Rettenmund’s list of his ‘Top 50 Sitcoms’ is pure gold – I especially agree with his Top 10.
• The Tonight Show: Jimmy Fallon and Andrew Rannells recap the year 2020 through Broadway songs like “Defying Gravity” from Wicked, “Memory” from Cats, and “My Shot” from Hamilton.
• Orlando Sentinel: Florida man coughed, sneezed, spit throughout a Best Buy after refusing mask. He told the police he’s “been going through a lot this year and got carried away.”
• World Of Wonder: Porn performer Reno Gold donated a week’s worth of his online earnings – over $27,000 – to the Elton John AIDS Foundation, which is awesome. p.s. if you do the math, Reno makes over $1 million a year, so, wow…
• Instagram: A 21-year-old fashion/lifestyle photographer in Mexico City shared the emotional moment he told his mother he was marrying his boyfriend and his religious mother denounced him for being gay. The video quickly went viral.
“The day I die you are gonna be the one who kills me because I’m always thinking about all the stuff you’ve done wrong,” she told him. “You do wrong. You sin. Think really hard about what you’re doing. Think about it and don’t sin for Satan.”
Facebook! What’s happening! So I’m scrolling through my page this morning and I was really taken aback by some of the back and forth commentary after I posted two photos from the Pride Parade / Festivities yesterday in Vancouver. The vast majority were positive, but a laughable amount were negative. I had a fantastic weekend in Vancouver with my wife and friends, met some terrific people and more than anything just tried to soak in all the positive energy from people living their best lives. If I’m in Vancouver next year I won’t just go back, I’ll walk in the parade. So for everyone in their negative pants: Go be on the wrong side of history on somebody else’s Facebook page. xo
You basically had the run-of-the-mill, common hater complaints:
Why do you have to shove this down my throat? Why do TV stars think they get to have an opinion on gay people?
Good on Amell for standing up to the haters.
Vancouver Pride takeaways: 1. Hugs are free, 2. Wear clothes you don't mind getting glitter on, 3. Britney Spears is basically currency.— Stephen Amell (@StephenAmell) August 6, 2017
A shirtless Stephen Amell is just one reason to like ARROW on the CW
So, being the comic book geek that I am, I’m a big fan of the CW’s series “Arrow” starring Stephen Amell. On top of some cool story-telling, there’s the very attractive cast led by Stephen Amell.
Amell made a stop by Chelsea Lately this week and just got even cooler in my book. When Chelsea clarifies that he is straight so the gays shouldn’t proposition him, Stephen quickly slapped that down saying “People can hit on me if they want to!”
So he’s not only easy on the eyes, but he’s confident with himself and comfortable with his gay fans.
Catch Mr. Amell and company on Wednesdays on the CW.
