US or UK wedding for Tom Daley, Dustin Lance Black?

tom_daley-300x194Greg Hernandez posts on Engaged couple Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black are two men from two different countries.

The question is, which country will they be getting married in next year?

Same-sex marriage is legal in Olympic diver Daley’s Great Britain and in Oscar winner Black’s United States.

‘I don’t think it’s been completely decided yet,’ Daley said at the GQ Awards before joining Black in Los Angeles last week.

‘He wants it to be in the UK and I kind of like the idea of the US wedding. We’ll see.’

Daley has said the wedding might take place in the spring of 2017.

‘The wedding planning’s going good actually,’ he says.

‘I’m meeting with some people … to get things started which is very exciting. It’s all going well … it’s going to be an exciting few years ahead.”

Bianca Del Rio takes on discrimination in new video

hurricane-bianca-x750Daniel Reynolds and Angela Jude post on The Advocate: Bianca Del Rio is raising a storm against discrimination in her new film, Hurricane Bianca.

Directed by Matt Kugelman, the movie stars the former RuPaul’s Drag Race winner (Roy Haylock) as a science teacher who is fired from a Texas high school for being gay. He gets his revenge by dressing in drag and returning to the classroom as Bianca Del Rio.

The production features both A-list actors as well as Drag Race alums, including Alan Cumming, Rachel Dratch, Margaret Cho, RuPaul, Willam, Shangela, and Alyssa Edwards.

Advocate editor Daniel Reynolds spoke with Del Rio about Hurricane Bianca and how she uses comedy to raise awareness of employment discrimination against LGBT people.

The drag performer also discussed her upcoming comedy tour, Donald Trump, and how cisgender people can help transgender people in their fight for equality.

Neil Patrick Harris and family take Halloween seriously

screen-shot-2016-09-22-at-12-08-17-pmean Mandell posts on Neil Patrick Harris appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Wednesday, Sept. 21, and talked about his twin kids growing up and how his family takes Halloween very seriously.

In case you haven’t been following along over the years, Harris and husband David Burtka have a history of dressing in group costumes with their kids. In 2013, Harris’ family dressed as a clan of monsters. In 2014, they went full Gotham, done up as the Riddler, the Joker, Batman and Batwoman. And last year, the family channeled Star Wars with a Force Awakens themed menagerie.

But speaking with Meyers, Neil Patrick Harris explains that now that his kids are getting older it’s getting harder to coax them into group costumes. “It’s a little bit annoying,” he joked because they have their own opinions, now.
