Sam Smith wants you to delete Grindr from your phone

Sam Smith says no to GrindrSinger Sam Smith, who recently came out as a gay man, would like you to stop using hook-up apps like Grindr.

The 22-year-old says that apps like Grindr - and straight apps like Tinder - are destroying romance.

"No offence to people who go on Tinder but I just feel like it’s ruining romance, I really do," he said. "We’re losing the art of conversation and being able to go and speak to people and you’re swiping people."
He said the apps redirect our focus towards superficial things like hair and body type, and that things that really matter, like personality, aren't being considered.
"From my experience the most beautiful people I’ve been on dates with are the dumbest, so why would I swipe people who are 'unattractive' when I could potentially fall in love with them?" he added.
He said he's currently dating a guy he found without using an app, though he doesn't say who or how they met. Of course, being a bestselling artist probably doesn't hurt when looking for potential suitors.

Run! It's Armagayddon!

Irish gay rights group LGBT Noise has released this amazing PSA about a straight couple hiding out from the approaching "armaGAYddon." Lock the doors, the homosexuals are coming!

The video was released in support of Ireland's upcoming referendum on gay marriage rights.

God crowdfunds to take on Westboro

God has finally had enough of the crazy antics of the "God hates Fags" Westboro Baptist Church. He has taken to crowdfunding site IndieGoGo to raise the money needed to put a "God Loves Gays" billboard in the home town of the anti-gay organization.
In just 10 days, the campaign has reached over $40,000 (of its $50,000 goal). Any additional money will be used to erect other gay-positive billboards around the US. 
In return for donations, supporters will get bumper stickers, limited edition t-shirts or posters saying "God Loves Gays" signed by God himself.
"A mean lie has been put into the world for thousands of years," explained God on the campaign's website. "The time has come to right this wrong. ... God loves gay, lesbian and transgendered people. God loves ALL people!
"Therefore, the LORD shall put up a billboard in Topeka, Kansas that says 'God Loves Gays.' The time has come to fight back. With love!"
The first billboard has already been booked and will be unveiled on September 8 in Topeka.
The unknown comedian behind the Facebook page The Good Lord Above is helping God out with the campaign. We're sure Jesus would approve.
You can support The Almighty's campaign on crowdfunding website IndieGoGo.

Doug Locke releases touching "#ThisCouldBeUs"

Openly gay musician Doug Locke has released his new single, "#ThisCouldBeUs."

In the music video, Locke's older self reconnects with one of his former flames, which brings back memories of their youth together.
"We all have those former loves that, while life may have led us in different directions, we find ourselves reminiscing over, daydreaming about what could have been," Locke said. "I'm a firm believer that once you give a person a piece of your heart, you never truly get it back."

Gawker revamps comments section due to graphic porn

Jezebel fights porn trollsOn Friday, Gawker Media announced that it will now review all user comments before they are posted.
The decision was made after Gawker-owned site Jezebel, a feminist blog, complained that its parent company was not doing enough to deal with the issue of "violent pornography" and "gory images of bloody injuries" that were being uploaded by commenters on a daily basis.
"This practice is profoundly upsetting to our commenters who have the misfortune of starting their day with some excessively violent images, to casual readers who drop by to skim Jezebel with their morning coffee only to see hard core pornography at the bottom of a post about Michelle Obama, and especially to the staff, who are the only ones capable of removing the comments and are thus, by default, now required to view and interact with violent pornography and gore as part of our jobs," Jezebel staff wrote on their site. "None of us are paid enough to deal with this on a daily basis."
Gawker's publishing platform, Kinja, was designed to make it easy for users to comment on stories and provide tips to Gawker's editors while remaining anonymous. It is considered one of the main reasons the site has become so successful. 
"Gawker's leadership is prioritizing theoretical anonymous tipsters over a very real and immediate threat to the mental health of Jezebel's staff and readers," Jezebel editors claimed.
After Jezebel's complaint went public, Gawker editor-in-chief Max Read announced that comments will now require approval. The new policy to review all comments before they go live affects all of Gawker Media's online properties, including Gizmodo, Lifehacker, Deadspin, Jezebel and io9.

Hotties getting iced for a good cause

Sexy guys doing Ice Bucket challenge
The latest meme on the Internet is being drenched by a bucket of ice water. The Ice Bucket Challenge was designed to help raise awareness of, and funding for, ALS research.
The challenge dares nominated participants to allow a bucket of ice water to be poured over their head. Once the challenge is completed, the participant can then nominate someone else to do it. With celebrities like Justin Bieber, Weird Al and John Barrowman getting involved, the ALS Association announced that it received $11.4 million in donations this summer, compared to $1.7 million last year.
These two cuties went a step further and took the challenge naked!

Celebrating big hairy men

Move over Shark Week! Fusion - a news, pop culture and satire TV and digital network - thinks Bear Week is so much better. Of course, we're not talking about the 600-pound run-for-your-life grizzly bear type, but rather the subset of gay men who since the early '80s have been redefining body image within gay culture.

To better understand and celebrate this group of men, Fusion's AM Tonight traveled to Provincetown, Massachusetts. For years, Provincetown has been hosting the annual Bear Week celebration. The event isn't just good fun, it's good for local businesses, whose owners say it is one of the busiest times of year. 

So if you like your men big and hairy, and can't make it to PTown, here's a peak:

California's "mandatory condoms in porn" bill shelved for now

CondomsYesterday, California's state Senate Appropriations Committee shelved AB 1576, the bill that would have forced porn producers in the state to use condoms when filming sex scenes.
Diane Duke of the Free Speech Coalition said that she was thankful that the Senate "saw this bill for what it was — a bald-faced attempt to exploit performers for political gain."
"But the battle is not actually over," she said, "for we must always work to make sure our productions are safe and legal, that our performers have a strong voice in their own sexual health, and to keep a thriving industry in California.”
"[The bill] would [have done] nothing to protect public health, and actually would have the exact opposite effect as to protecting the health of performers," added adult entertainment attorney Allan Gelbard. "The fiscal effects on the state would be especially damaging."
Of course, not everyone was happy with the decision.
“Regardless of whether AB 1576 became law this year, condom use already is—and has been—the law in California under existing Cal/OSHA authority. The porn industry has simply chosen to ignore these laws, with few, if any, repercussions to date for producers,” countered Michael Weinstein, President of AIDS Healthcare Foundation. “As for AB 1576: We will reintroduce the bill next year and are proud of the fact that we moved this legislation farther along in this session than any previous year."

Chris Pratt versus Bradley Cooper versus Vin Diesel

Who is hotter: Chris Pratt, Bradley Cooper or Vin Diesel?

One of the biggest movies of the summer is Guardians of the Galaxy. It pulled in $94 million in its opening weekend. A sequel is already in the works.

The main character of Star Lord is played by Chris Pratt. He's probably best known for his role as the dimwitted Andy Dwyer in NBC's Parks and Recreation. Pratt hit the gym hard for his big movie role, shedding pounds and firming up. The result: total hotness.

In the film, he plays opposite two very cute CG characters. Rocket, a re-engineered raccoon, is a bounty hunter, and Groot, a humanoid tree, is Rocket's sidekick. Their voices are provided by real life hotties Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel. If they had played the roles themselves, could they have stolen some of Pratt's thunder?
