Miley Cyrus Banned In The Dominican Republic

blabbeando: The National Commission for Public Performances in the Dominican Republic announced today that they were banning a September 13th Miley Cyrus concert for, among other things, promoting lesbian sex.
They add that Cyrus "uses inadequate attire, corrupts language, uses perverse imagery and phrasing, uses phrases with double meanings, glorifies crime, violence and denigrating acts against civility and promotes sex, lesbian sex and the use of inadequate objects in public."

Being gay or lesbian is not a crime in the Caribbean island but religious fundamentalists have grown increasingly vocal in their opposition to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues and have, as of late, targeted the openly gay U.S. ambassador to the Dominican Republic James "Wally" Brewster and his husband Bob Satawake.
(see my previous posts about them)

Dominican president Danilo Medina has so far offered veiled support to the U.S. Ambassador by appearing with him at public events and praising his work. But he has yet to use his huge popularity to push back against the rising tide of homophobia in the Dominican Republic and certain government offices including national police authorities that say that accepting gays in the police force would violate the Dominican constitution and, now, this ridiculous step by the National Commission for Public Performances.

Today's Quote: Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

"Once [gay] people began to say who they were, you found that it was your next-door neighbor or it could be your child, and we found people we admired," she said. "That understanding still doesn't exist with race; you still have separation of neighborhoods, where the races are not mixed. It's the familiarity with people who are gay that still doesn't exist for race and will remain that way for a long time as long as where we live remains divided."

Donald Sterling Outed By V. Stiviano?

V. Stiviano Claims Donald Sterling Is Gay In Cross-Complaint to Shelly Sterling Suit

V. Stiviano has made some big accusations about Donald Sterling and wife Shelly Sterling in the legal war raging between them.
In response to Shelly's lawsuit, which accuses the model mistress of taking $1.8 million from the Sterling Family in gifts for sexual favors, Stiviano says that she “was not ever a sexual partner” of Donald.
In documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Aug. 9 obtained by TheWrap, Stiviano said that Donald is “homosexual and enjoys sexual and or sexual congress with males” and that she acted as his “beard.”

"Glee" Final Season News

'Glee' Books Max Adler's Return — as Blaine's Boyfriend?

Max Adler has booked a return visit to the Fox musical and will reprise his role as former bully turned openly gay good guy Dave Karofsky, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. 
Adler's arc is said to be major, and he'll appear in at least four of the final 13 episodes of the series. Sources tell THR that Dave may now be romantically entangled with Blaine (Darren Criss), which is surprising news since season five ended with Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine seemingly better than ever as a couple... Ryan Murphy told reporters in April that the final season would feature a time jump — and focus more on the core original castmembers — which could mean Kurt and Blaine have split after that. 
Adler was last seen in the 17th episode of Glee's fifth season when Karofsky appeared in Rachel's pre-Opening Night dream sequence. The plot twist would come after Blaine helped Kurt get through Karofsky's bullying. The closeted jock routinely tormented the openly gay Kurt and, after Dave forced a kiss on him in season two, was outed in a landmark season-three episode in which he attempted suicide.
