Versace‘s Spring 2014 campaign featuring Lady Gaga came out few months ago and everybody in the fashion industry agreed that the lady was flawless in front of the camera. But few days ago, un-photoshopped photos of the famous singer came out and they went viral on social medias. Funny how people complain that advertising photos are always photoshopped and that companies should consider bigger models, or average people, but when the photos are showing the truth, bruised knees, dark circles or pimples, people are still complaining and criticizing…

Matthew McConaughey speech at yesterday’s Oscars got different opinions from all over the world. Us Weekly called it a “touching” speech (really?) while Time called it “confounding” and “semi-bizarre”.
I’ll personally say that I’m a bit disappointed that McConaughey didn’t mention HIV/AIDS once in his speech. Given that he won for the “Best Actor” award in his role playing a person with AIDS in “Dallas Buyers Club,” you’d think maybe he could have paused his self-indulgent, self-congratulatory, self-obessed speech to mention — as did Jared Leto, who also won an Oscar playing a person with AIDS in “Dallas Buyers Club” — the “36 million people who have lost the battle to AIDS.”

At this unique moment in history, when we are seeing such rapid progress in the fight for equality in the West, we cannot be blinded to appalling crimes against humanity elsewhere. Today in Russia, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) people are facing harassment, arrest and violence under a set of horrific new laws. For their sake, we must come together and start an uprising of love.
Models Colby Melvin and Brandon Brown ask for your help in this new video promoting global Pride Houses. A Pride House is a place for LGBT athletes, fans, and friends to meet and enjoy international sporting events. At the previous two Olympics, there was a Pride House in the host country. This year, Russia has forbidden the establishment of a Pride House in Sochi. In response, restaurants, bars, and clubs across the country are becoming Pride Houses in solidarity with LGBT Russians and donating $1 of every drink sold between 9pm and midnight on the night of the Sochi Olympics Opening Ceremony to the Russia Freedom Fund.
Find participating venues here.
You can also download Uprising Of Love on iTunes, a song written and sang by Melissa Etheridge for the event. 100% of the proceeds will benefit the Russia Freedom Fund!

Coca-Cola broke new ground on Sunday night when it aired the first Super Bowl ad featuring a family led by a gay couple. The ad, entitled “It’s Beautiful,” features a very moving rendition of “America the Beautiful” sung in different languages as the camera pans through diverse racial and ethnic communities.
“The only thing more beautiful than this country are the people who live here,” reads a statement on the commercial’s YouTube page.
I personally feel that Coke is trying to keep us as costumers because we all know that many people in the LGBT community are angry at Coke for being a major sponsor of the Winter Olympics in Sochi even though Russia enforces anti-gay laws.
