The Gay Men’s Chorus of LA sings an ‘It Gets Better’ message

Found this video via Andy Towle who wrote “Chills. Tears.” He’s right:

We’re seeing the LGBT community come together to take care of its youngest members. Not many of us had people to tell us “It gets better.” But, it does — and the next generations need to know that. And, I think the outpouring since Dan Savage launched this project shows an understanding that we have to be the support we need.

We’re not going to let deranged homophobes like Tony Perkins allow more LGBT kids to die.

Men’s Magazines Stop Pushing Unrealistic Twink Image. Now, For The Unattainable Muscled Image

Skinny twinks are so over, declare a whole slew of men's magazine editors. So goodbye to the Dior and Jil Sander prototypes and say hello to Jon Hamm, we're now being told to believes in a Times trend piece that gets recycled every 12 months. GQ's editor Jim Nelson (a homogay) claims "the twink thing seems over. When people open GQ, I don’t want them to feel like they’re looking at clothes on 16-year-olds." Adds Details editor Dan Peres (a heterostraight): "[W]e have a product to produce that, in the end, has to be relatable to a reader, a reader who wants to be able to see some vision of himself in the pages of a magazine." Because what guy doesn't wake up in the morning, do a set of push ups, and end up looking like Chris Pine? (Not that I have the frail body of Jared Leto, either.)
