LGBT Celebrities Abandon Kanye West; Openly Gay Richard Grenell Makes Gay History; Troye Sivan Lied About Grindr Age, and Older Gay Men

LGBT Celebrities Abandon Kanye West

Here’s something that is definitely a sign of the times, especially if you know anything about the way social media works.

West posted pro-Trump tweets and rumors immediately made it appear as if he’d lost one third of his followers…but it was all rumor like most things online.

But because West supports Trump there was backlash, allegedly.

According to Cosmopolitan Australia, a whole host of famous LGBT people and allies have unfollowed West in the aftermath of the rappers’ Twitter storm.

Celebrities including Troye Sivan and Jaden Smith have reportedly unfollowed West on the micro-blogging site since the pro-Trump tweets.
You can check this one out, here. There are more celebrity names listed and a statement by Kim Kardashian who is West’s wife. 
Openly Gay Richard Grenell Makes Gay History
Here’s something that’s also a sign of the times. In a vote of 56-42, the senate just confirmed Trump nominee, openly gay Richard Grenell, as ambassador to Germany. 
With his confirmation, Grenell becomes one of the most prominent openly gay Trump appointees. Grenell’s supporters include Stuart Milk, co-founder of the Harvey Milk Foundation and nephew of the late gay civil rights leader. Milk told The New York Times in March that he believed Grenell’s confirmation would “send an important message” to the LGBTQ community about their place in the Trump administration.
Here’s the rest. Unfortunately, I didn’t see this trending in too many places. But gay history never does.
Troye Sivan Lied About Grindr Age, and Older Gay Men
I find this one interesting because I’ve posted a few things about why I don’t like the way Hollywood normalized a sexual relationship between a 17 year old barely legal boy and an older man in the movie, Call Me By Your Name.
Now Troye Sivan is speaking up about how he felt as a 17 year old kid dealing with predatory behavior. At the time, Sivan was lying about his age with a fake ID on Grindr. And that’s because he was a kid. And you don’t blame the kid. This is what kids do.

There’s actually a song about it on the album called ’17’… Originally the chorus of the song was ‘Here he comes, like he just walked out of a dream, doesn’t care that you’re 17’. And I was like ‘uh, that sounds a bit predatory’, and maybe it was a little bit.
There’s something about this one I find so sad.
