Australian Olympian Matthew Mitcham, who's one of the only out gay competitors in this year's Olympics (the others are all dressage queens and handball-playing lesbians), decided to make a little YouTube vid for his fans while sitting his dorm room at the Olympic Village in London. What song did he pick to do? "Single Ladies," naturally. And holy god we want to marry him now. Below, watch him leap around in some swim trunks and mug for the camera in a photo shoot for Funky Trunks.
Funny men Brian Safi and Jeffery Self were obviously sitting around one day and sending each other into fits of laughter by imagining what various aging actresses were doing in their lives at this very minute. The jokes are all Safi's, but his little web series is kind of hilarious in part because of how much Safi and Self are legitimately pissing themselves while improvising these little bits. Below, "What Do You Think Shelley Long Is Doing Right Now?"
Swedish decathelete Bjorn Barrefors puts even well endowed diver David Boudia to shame with a massive trouser snake that he's no doubt named Thor, or similar. Check it out! That thing could make a boy or girl very happy for a very long time. Below, a shot of him topless, and another of Thor, during a pole vault.
What gives, NBC? Why did you have to constantly put that score bar in front of hot twink British diver Tom Daley's crotch every time he hit the shower during the men's synchronized diving finals last night?? He's actually quite well endowed for a twink, and the censorship was totally unnecessary and dare we say prudish. Also, American diver David Boudia, who with his loving partner Nick McCrory took home the bronze last night, was quite well hung himself. Observe, below.
We'd say this is a touch long for a piece of soft-core that has absolutely no penis in it, but there is a lot of licking and telephoto scans of ridiculously washboardy abs. You suppose Andrew Christian might be marketing to the gays?
The whole splicing/censoring of porn to make a video has been done before, but this is a new twist, involving the bodies of the actual members of the band, and some hot VHS shiz from the 80s/90s. Watch it all the way through.
Those who've been paying attention will recall Mike Diamond's rather brilliant couple of videos titled "Shit Rancid Gay Guys Say." From those videos we learned the term "plaza queen," which in fact is a reference dating back to 1980s gay culture in Los Angeles, where it referred to low-class homos who would hang out around one of the city's many strip malls, or "plazas." Now we bring you "Plaza Queen" the "Sunset on the Piers Dub" by DJ Billy Pfeiffer. Hilarious. You can rewatch Part 2 of Diamond's series, in which the term gets thrown around, below.
You know the drill. Behold comedian Drew Droege's latest Chloe vid, complete with Alexander McQueen reference and the creative re-pronunciation of the word "exercise."
No, we're not kidding. With the instant success of the flesh-fest that is Magic Mike, Broadway has come a-callin. Deadline reports that Steven Soderbergh and Channing Tatum have both signed on as producers for an upcoming musical, which we suppose will be something like The Full Monty only without the full monty. The more we think about it, the more this makes perfect sense. We only wish we could get to see Joe Mangianello reprise his role as Big Dick Richie live on stage, and without the use of shadow puppetry. [Deadline]
It's been a long time coming. In fact, it's been almost five years since Anderson Cooper and Jodie Foster were on the cover of OUT Magazine's 'Glass Closet' issue. But now, perhaps pressured by other celebrities and their subtle comings out, and by this recent Entertainment Weekly cover story that implicated him as a holdout as well, Anderson finally penned an email to Andrew Sullivan admiting, "The fact is, I'm gay." Also, he's super proud about it, and not ashamed, and his reasons for keeping it semi-hidden all this time were purely professional and blah blah blah. This both is and isn't a big deal. Yes, most of you already knew this (though a few of your straight gal pals probably wanted to given Andy the benefit of the doubt). But a lot of the country didn't, and now they will, and Anderson is a huge person in the news world at this point. Our first out major news anchor. DOn't expect him to go blabbing to OUT about whether he's a top or bottom or what his type is (but we're pretty sure he likes em dark/Latino and that he is a big bottom, but we digress).

Tom and Katie are getting a divorce, ladies and gentlemen, and hopefully the Scientologists haven't reprogrammed all the spunk out of the poor girl. We mean rich girl. We're sure she's going to be very, very rich, and set for life, and that's swell. What a world. [People, HuffPo]
UPDATE: Let the Tom Cruise on Grindr memes begin! (See below)
UPDATE 2: Uh, so, does this blind item suggest that Tom may have been having a little secret affair with David Beckham? Whoa.
Happy Pride Weekend San Francisco, New York, and wherever else! In honor of Pride, we share with you this video of noted, shirtless, nipply Canadian vlogger Davey Wavey taking a trip to the Wet lube factory outside L.A., and fulfilling his dream of getting to swim in a pool full of silicone lube. So dirty! We mean, so vanilla! Anyway, everyone enjoys staring at his chest, which is why he's made a living through this vlogging bullshit (and personal training!) all these years. Anyway, we hope your shame spiral lands you in a pool of lube of this weekend. Luvs!
We know we should shut up about Magic Mike. But it's really just far too exciting, and like any relationship, this is the period when we're still all full of butterflies and hope and anticipation. Disappointment and the eventual denouncing it as a complete waste of our time will come later. Now listen to funny gays Bryan Safi, Guy Branum, Louis Virtel, and Jeffery Self discuss the film, and their hopes for it. [Thx to Jeffery Self]
