For the mayor of a small midwestern city, Pete Buttigieg sure is a fundraising machine. He raised almost $25 million dollars for his presidential campaign in the second quarter of the year, raking in more money than any of his competitors, including former Vice President Joe Biden. Now Buttigieg has tapped into a rich vein of money: Hollywood donors. Apparently the combination of Buttigieg’s smarts and his historic campaign as the first major gay presidential candidate is enough to make...

A new poll found that LGBTQ are actually pretty fine with just about anyone showing up at Pride, despite controversies around police officers, kinksters, families, and corporations. A poll of 801 LGBTQ people conducted by Whitman Insight Strategies and Buzzfeed News found that the community overwhelmingly supports just about everyone going to Pride. When asked about police officers marching in Pride parades, only 10% of people said “No.” 79% said “yes” and the rest didn’t give an answer. Corporations have also been...

Ellen kicked off Pride Month today with a really gay episode. The episode was so gay it didn’t even make sense, but it didn’t have to. First, she introduced a segment about parents sending kids to camp. Whitney Houston’s “Greatest Love of All” – a song that RuPaul once referred to as a “drag queen classic” – started to play to introduce the segment, and Ellen started lipsyncing. Then a drag queen came out from backstage and lipsynced with Ellen. The segment...

In her opening segment, she said that she’s glad to be on The Ellen Degeneres Show without being asked “personal questions” by Ellen, like “How are you?” Sykes did...

During a recent interview with David Letterman, Ellen DeGeneres revealed she experienced sexual abuse at the hands of her stepfather. In a conversation taped for Letterman’s Netflix show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction,  DeGeneres explained how her stepfather used her mother’s breast cancer diagnosis as an excuse to fondle her. She was only in her mid-teens at the time. “He told me when she was out of town that he’d felt a lump in her breast and needed to feel my breasts because...

Ellen Degeneres talked about her stepfather’s sexual abuse in an interview. Ellen was talking to David Letterman on his Netflix show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction when she brought up her stepfather, who assaulted her when she was a teenager.

All the good feelings Seth Owen, the gay valedictorian from Florida whose parents kicked him out, recently appeared on Ellen. His story first surfaced in August and quickly went viral. His parents found out he was gay when he was a sophomore in high school and subsequently sent him to conversion therapy. When he asked his parents if he could stop attending church, they gave him a choice: go to church or leave. Owen ended up leaving and staying with friends. Despite 4.16...

Sam Smith confirmed he is in a relationship (though, he didn’t specifically name 13 Reasons Why actor Brandon Flynn whom we suspect is the boy in question). The singer is making the rounds to promote his upcoming album The Thrill of it All and it seems that joy is radiating in Smith as he talked about his relationship with Ellen DeGeneres. The comedian and talk show host asked Smith: ”You’re not single right now anymore, right?" and he replied "No, I’m not.” “Which...

“My what a guy, that Gaston!” Luke Evans has been known to post a topless selfie or two on Instagram in his time, but we don’t think he was expecting to see them aired on Ellen when he originally put them up. The British actor – who plays Gaston in Disney’s live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast – was left red-faced when the audience screamed as his semi-naked selfies, leaving Ellen DeGeneres amused by the whole thing. “Well you’ve just ruined it...
