They don’t get much cuter than Isaac Brown. This kid is only 6 but he has more personality than some people will ever have in a life time!!!
Isaac wow the judges with his cover of the Jackson 5’s I Want You Back. Though his performance was brillant, his adorable outgoing attitude is what really caught the attention of the three judges and the crowd. This kid will go far in the competition.....
Check out this dance video from Diogo De Lima. I had a huge smile on my face watching it. It's kinda silly really. But Justin Shaw, the dancer had this cute adorable expression throughout the video that it is hard not to get infected by it. Haha I wish I could wake up with a dance step every morning instead of my normal growl.

New York, NY — Starting on Tuesday, May 29, Gay Men's Health Crisis (GMHC) will launch a citywide HIV prevention campaign, "Kiss & Tell" in phone kiosks throughout the city to coincide with LGBT Pride Month (June). The campaign was developed in partnership with adolescents, between the ages of 13 and 19. "Kiss & Tell" encourages young African American and Latino gay and bisexual men to have open and loving discussions (tell) with partners (the people they kiss) about their sexual history and HIV status. The youth who helped to create the campaign are part of GMHC's youth leadership-development program, CLUB1319 (club1319.org). CLUB1319 provides HIV prevention education, social networking, skills training to these young men, as well as opportunities to participate in developing social marketing campaigns. "Kiss & Tell" builds upon GMHC's widely respected campaign, "I Love My Boo" which also targeted young African American and Latino gay men.
Just stumble across this old video of Anne Hathaway giving a very moving speech onstage as she accepted her award from the Human Rights Campaign in 2008. If you have not watch it before, check it out. Her award was given to her for being openly supportive of the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender community. This is a topic very close to Anne, who grew up with a gay brother. Her speech was very powerful, and she spoke of not being "brave" for openly supportive of gay rights, but being just a decent human being.

Madonna is in Israel rehearsing for her MDNA tour and was captured on video singing her classic track 'Express Yourself' and then launching into Lady Gaga's 'Born This Way' mid-song.
She then brought 'Express Yourself' back in before switching to 'She's Not Me' from Hard Candy. This got a lot of tougues wagging that she is having a swipe at Lady Gaga since 'Born This Way' has often been compared to 'Express Yourself'. Check out this footage of Madonna’s MDNA tour rehearsal .

I seldom say this. But THIS IS FREAKING AMAZING. Put just about every other marriage proposal to shame. Gay or straight. I got misty eyed at the end and I am really not the type that will get all goeey inside but this just melted me. I really adore this. Such a great bunch of friends. I wish Amy and Isaac all the best. Gosh, isn't it great to know that romance is still alive and well.....

While many of us know homosexuality is normal, plenty of homophobes keep spreading myths that ‘gay cure’ therapies work.
More vulnerable gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people are falling victim to these poisonous arguments, often used by their families, their church or even their country.
'Gay cure' or reparative therapy propaganda seems to be steamrolling, such as last month when religious activists booked an 'ex-gay' advert on London buses. Meanwhile, in the US, their main scientific advocate has withdrawn his support.
Kylie is back in hotpants for her new single, Timebomb. Looking more like 23 than 43, the pop princess struts her stuff through central London in the video for Timebomb.
