What happens when a gay man gets pregnant?

Paternity Leave the movieMatt Riddlehoover's Paternity Leave is a romantic comedy with a twist.
Greg (Jacob York) and Ken (Charlie David) have been together for awhile. But after a fun night of celebrating their four-year anniversary, things take a dramatic turn!
Greg begins feeling nauseated, fatigued, moody and – most unfortunately – fat. At his wit's end and Ken's insistence, he sees a doctor who's stumped and refers the couple to a specialist. To everyone's amazement, Greg is pregnant.  Now that would be a WTF moment!
The movie is currently playing at queer film festivals across the US, and will be released on DVD in November.

"Bitch, I’m a condom!" promotes safe gay sex

According to Impulse United (an organization dedicated to promoting healthier sexual lifestyles among gay men): "There is nothing funny about the risks of HIV, but together we can educate & protect ourselves from STI's. Collaborating with the voices of various LGBT influencers like Manila Luzon, Pandora Boxx, Jai Rodriguez, Pablo Hernandez & Impulse LA, we strive to promote the message of safer sex practices."

And what better way to get your message across than to parody a Madonna song?

Priory releases gay-positive single "Put 'Em Up"

According to singer Brandon Rush, the song “Put ‘Em Up" stems from his relationship with his gay brother.

“I wrote this song a couple of years ago,” he explained. “It’s a personal story about watching my brother struggle with being gay in a conservative and religious family. It didn’t get any better for him when he joined the military. I’m happy that in the past couple of weeks our country has made a lot of progress in granting the LBGT community equality, but we all know we still have a long way to go.”

Yes, someone made a musical about Grindr

Grindr, the MusicalIf you ever wondered if it was possible to create an award winning musical based on a gay hook-up app, the answer is a qualified yes.

Benjamin Viertel (director) and Jacob Tischler (lyrics and music) cobbled together a humorous take on meeting up through a smartphone app, resulting in Grindr: The Musical

The show's plot is simple enough:

When Jesse decides to find his true self, he logs onto Grindr - the gay geosocial networking, and notoriously known, hook-up app. Delving into an underworld he never knew existed, he finds himself transported to the 'scene' with new-found freedoms of anonymous sex, promiscuity, and general male horniness. Jesse discovers fresh feelings deep inside himself with the help of his heavenly chorus of Grindr boys, as well as realizing the dangers of an unending dispensary of men. 

Will Jesse find what he's looking for or become dependent on the app that uncovered his new self?
Last year the show won six awards at something called the  West Village Musical Theater Festival, including Best Musical, Best Director, Best Lyrics, Best Music, Best Book (Bryce Cutler), and Best Actor (Taylor Shubert).
Grindr: The Musical has not gone on to bigger and better things - like an actual production run - since its festival appearance, but there will be a special one show performance on December 8 at New York's 47th Street Theatre.
Here's a sample:

UK pop singer Olly Alexander wants gayer lyrics in songs

Olly Alexander and Adam LambertOlly Alexander (pictured with Adam Lambert), the openly gay lead singer of British band Years & Years, finds it sad that gay pop stars seldom use male pronouns in any of their songs.
While being interviewed by Digital Spy about his band’s debut album, Communion, he said: "It was important for me to get some male pronouns in some of the songs. So I did it for 'Real and Memo,' and then one song on the deluxe. It is kind of sad to me that we don’t have gay pop stars singing about men using a male pronoun, but that could change hopefully."
And, he added, "I’d like to hear a gay artist express their sexuality in a really open way. That’s something I’ve sort of tried to do a little bit on this album, but to be able to talk about sex is possibly new for gay artists, so I’d like to see that in the mainstream."
Years & Years is starting to earn some serious buzz in the United Kingdom. The group landed the number one spot in the BBC Sound of 2015 poll in January, and had its first UK number one with "King" in March.
And if Alexander looks familiar to some of you, it's because he had a small role as a stalker in the acclaimed British series Skins, and more recently appeared as the vampire Fenton in the series Penny Dreadful.
Based on his acting skills and his music, we think Alexander will definitely go far.
