Chinese New Year Video Urging LGBT Acceptance Goes Viral

Chinese New Year

... and five other things you should know today. 

1. It's Chinese New Year, and hundreds of millions of families across the world will be coming together to celebrate. Homosexuality is not widely accepted in Chinese culture, however, making it a difficult time for some. In an attempt to combat this, an LGBT organization has created a beautiful video aimed at spreading the message of love. Coming Home, the scripted short ends with real Chinese mothers giving words of support to young people. The best part, the video has gone absolutely viral! [TIME]

2. It's been revealed that Tom Ford is working on a second film. The follow up to his 2009 A Single Man, the upcoming thriller is as yet untitled. [Dazed]

3. Pope Francis is certainly keeping us on our toes. On the progressive front, gay Catholic pilgrims were afforded unprecedented recognition at the Vatican yesterday. Previous popes had just ignored the group, while this year a special place was reserved for them close to the front. They did not, however, recieve a papal shout-out. [ABC]

4. On a less savory note, a newly published book in Italy has revealed Pope Francis' deeply troubling view of trans people. Claiming that those who transition are in opposition to "God's order of creation," he went on to compare them to nucelar weapons. [Gay Star News]

5. The Oscars are fast approaching, and Neil Patrick Harris sat down to chat with Jimmy Kimmel about what it's like to host awards shows, and how he handles on-stage disaster. [Watch it on Hulu]

6. And here's some cheer to help combat this never-ending winter: Chvrches covering Justin TImberlake's Cry Me A River. Watch below:
