Go Ahead, Punk, Call Pink A ‘Lesbian,’ Make Her Day


…And 5 Other Things You Need To Know Today

1. During the Melbourne stop on her "Truth About Love Tour," Pink danced with a pride flag draped around her shoulders after grabbing it from an audience member in the front row. While many we're delighted by the impromptu show of support for the LGBTQ community, not all were pleased. Towleroad reports that somebody tweeted at the gay-rights advocate and called her "lesbian." Did that faze the singer? Hell no! She tweeted in response "Fun fact:when you twitter me and say "you're a lesbian" it really doesn't bother me at all. It's a compliment. Most of my fav ppl are, so..." and "I'm sure all of you hate filled humans can come up with something a little worse than that?!? Come on- be creative. You have 140 characters!"

2. James Deen's fooled around with dudes and feels kind of bad for being straight. In an interview with Gawker's Rich Juzwiak, straight porn superstar and lead in The Canyons, James Deen, says that he's experimented with other guys, but he's not into men (sorry lads). He also said, "I kinda sometimes feel bad about that, I feel like I'm supposed to be because I hang out in San Francisco so much and people make me feel really bad for being a straight, white dude and I feel like I'm doing something wrong for being a straight white dude." Read the whole interview here.

3. Lady Gaga's having none of the Russian Government's malarkey. We reported last week that Russian politician Vitaly Milonov wants the prosecutor general to investigate Gaga for ostensibly violating the conditions of her visa. In a series of tweets today, Mother Monster fired back at Mother Russia. She tweeted: "Why didn't you arrest me when you had the chance, Russia? Because you didn't want answer to the world?," "The Russian government is criminal. Oppression will be met with revolution. Russian LGBTs you are not alone. We will fight for your freedom," and "Sending bravery to LGBTs in Russia. The rise in government abuse is archaic. Hosing teenagers with pepper spray? Beatings? Mother Russia?"

4. Raven-Symone came out...kind of. Last week we reported that Raven-Symone tweeted: "I can finally get married! Yay government! So proud of you." CNN reports that in a statement, the actress said, "I am very happy that gay marriage is opening up around the country and is being accepted. I was excited to hear today that more states legalized gay marriage. I, however am not currently getting married, but it is great to know I can now, should I wish to." So that's the closest we're gonna get to a "I'm a lesbian."

5. After a performance of No Man's Land, advocate Michael Petrelis got the play's star, Ian McKellen, to send a message of solidarity to gay Russians. Petrelis and his partner posed with McKellen and the play's director, Sean Mathias, in front of a rainbow flag. The four held signs showing messages of support. Check out the photo here.

6. AT&T has released an It Gets Better video. It's good to see more and more corporations supporting gay youth and equality. Now if only I could get reception on my iPhone...
