Hugh Jackman Laughed During A Gay Kiss
Here’s another one about a straight actor who played gayface and thought it was funny to kiss a man. I’m so used to these things by now it’s not worth a rant.
Jackman played gayface in the life story of Peter Allen. And this is what happened while he was kissing a man.
He explains: “I was literally just locking lips. I started to laugh so hard. So I stay kissing him, because I thought, ‘I’m just going to laugh. I’m going to stay here until it subsides’ and it never subsided and the whole audience could see my body shaking, so they started.”
But he claims he doesn’t mind the gay rumors…but his wife isn’t happy about them. Go figure.

Satanic Temple and Sabrina Lawsuit Settles
I posted about this one around Halloween. I watched the whole Sabrina series and loved it. The Satanic Temple sued Netflix and Warner Brothers for copyright infringement. They give a full explanation at the link.
Announcing the settlement of their lawsuit, Stuart de Haan, attorney for The Satanic Temple, wrote, “The Satanic Temple is pleased to announce that the lawsuit it recently filed against Warner Bros. and Netflix has been amicably settled.”
Gay Student Comes Out To Catholic School
Here’s something encouraging. I love what younger LGBTQ people are doing these days. After reading about people like Hugh Jackman above, it’s this kind of story that gives me hope for the future. No one is laughing at this kid because he’s gay.
An Australian student came out to his Catholic school during an assembly packed full of his classmates and teachers.
‘Life was easier living as the straight eldest son. I had spent so long behind the façade of a confident, heterosexual man that I wasn’t sure if I knew how to be me.’
Some things are changing for the better.
