It’s been a pretty eventful week in the entertainment world, and in the gay world alike. Several public figures have come out of the closet, including Olympic women’s soccer player Megan Rapinoe
. We’ve included a few of these “coming out” stories below that we feel are worth checking out.
While some have stepped out of the closet, others are ready to step into the Big Brother house as the cast of Season 14 is announced, including a gay hottie who we’re sure will be great … eye candy at least. Check out these stories and other interesting posts from the week below.
Big Brother Season 14 Cast Announced
The just announced Big Brother
Season 14 cast is your usual combo
of characters. You have your pretty blond, tattoo’d “unique” girl
, unemployed hottie, bespeckled nerd, Jersey Shore wannabe
and Thor look-a-like. If that wasn’t enough to wet your appetite, joining the cast is another Hantz
. How many of them are around? This time it’s Willie Hantz who’s a tankerman
(whatever that is). Check out the cast and what the big twist is this season here
Anderson Cooper Comes Out
Whoa, we all knew and it was something that was such hot topic
of discussion, but now Anderson Cooper
has officially set the record straight … I mean gay. The CNN anchor and talk show host discussed his decision to come out in a letter to political blogger
and friend Andrew Sullivan, published earlier this week. Read what he had to say about his sexuality and his career here
Frank Ocean Comes Out
In case you don’t know who Frank Ocean is, he was highlighted by MTV as one of the artists to watch for in 2012 and he was also included in Beyonce’s list of her favorite songs of 2011. The talented R&B singer has just come out of the closet after speculation that he was gay. He wrote a very personal and powerful post on his tumblr page which we have included below.
In the posting, he talks about how he fell in love with a man four summers ago and how it change him forever. It was a difficult time (as you might expect) when he came to grips with his sexuality and understanding who he was. It’s a very beautifully written post and we encourage you to read it. Find it here.
Australia’s Olympics Swimming Team
Given that Australia
is surrounded by water, it should come as no surprise that the nation boasts one of the best swimming teams around. Not only are they athletic, but they’re not to shabby to look at either. If the gold medal
was given based on hotness factor
, these Aussies are definitely frontrunners. Eamon Sullivan
, James Roberts
, James Magnussen
and Matt Targett
showed off their speedos and toned abs for a series of photos. Check them out here
