Kate Brown became the country’s first openly LGBT elected governor.
Brown, who is bisexual, became governor of Oregon when John Kitzhaber resigned on February 18, 2015. On Election Day 2016, though, she earned the spot in her own right in a special election—and became the first openly LGBT person in America to be elected governor. (Her new term started in January 9th.)
While many of us feel embittered by the recent elections, it’s important to cheer on those who continue the hard work of ensuring equality and inclusion for all.
The “Waaaay Too High” High
Probably should have stopped after that fourth brownie.
Bearing introductory language almost identical to that of Massachusetts, Michigan's volume of criminal statues' main entry about the punishment for sodomy - there are several - says, "Any person who shall commit the abominable and detestable crime against nature with mankind or with any animal shall be guilty of a felony, punishable by imprisonment in the state prison not more the 15 years, or is such person was at the time of the said offense a sexually delinquent person, may be punishable by imprisonment in the state prison for an indeterminate term, the minimum of which shall be 1 day and the maximum of which shall be life."

Joseph Mitchell Parsons
Parsons was executed in Utah in 1999. He had a large last meal consisting of three Burger King Whoppers, two large orders of fries, a chocolate shake, chocolate chip ice cream, and a package of grape Hubba Bubba bubblegum, which he shared with his brother and a cousin. Parsons' attorney said that he chose this meal because the Burger King slogan "Have it your way" was a reflection of him taking control of his life.

There are a ton of really attractive guys from our Manhunt Now newsletters who never make it onto Manhunt Daily. This has nothing to do with their appearance, the content of their profile or the fact that they haven’t performed sexual favors on us. It’s just that, well, our colleagues at Manhunt send us anywhere from twenty to thirty names every week. There are only seven slots to fill—including the Manhunt Man of The Week—and if you do the math, someone needs to get left out.
Some guys don’t have enough pics, some guys have pics that are too tiny, and some guys are blatantly overlooked for no good reason. There’s both a science and complete randomness to who gets selected for the ultimate honor of being featured on these pages. An ultimate honor that involves you leaving bitchy remarks about the subject’s appearance and your bizarre projected sense of their personality.
The forty-eight men you’re about to see were included in our Manhunt Now newsletters over the past three weeks, but like many before them, never made it to the blog for some (likely dumb) reason. Honestly, you’re gonna want to slap us in the face when you see how gorgeous some of these guys are… But if we have any say in our own punishment, might we recommend a good, hard spanking? Followed by a good, hard ass pounding? Just a suggestion!

A friendly, welcoming vibe is apparent and it's a lovely break from the hetero energy that proliferates vast swaths of Sin City — we're ready for Temptation Fridays, Saturdays, and Tuesdays. Click through for more pics from this weekend's event, check out last year's party, and find out more about Temptation Sundays here.

This is Ben Whishaw at his most ‘Ben Whishaw’. The British actor – who’s attached to the upcoming Mary Poppins remake – gives a sensitive, quietly devastating performance as Richard, a young man grieving the death of the love of his life, Kai (Andrew Leung, appearing in flashback, is equally as unfaltering).
Cheng Pei-pei plays Kai’s mother, Junn, who doesn’t speak English and didn’t know her son was gay. Richard’s tireless attempts to connect and communicate with her will bring tears to your eyes – we guarantee it.

" We are not about to get in the nasty business of throwing stones at each other."From: NewNowNext
Chip and Joanna Gaines, the popular hosts of HGTV’s Fixer Upper, got embroiled in controversy last month, when it was revealed that their pastor opposed LGBT rights. A Buzzfeed article from November indicated Jimmy Seibert, pastor at Antioch Community Church, is adamantly against marriage equality and endorses conversion therapy.
It could be argued celebrities shouldn’t be made accountable for their minister’s opinions, but the Gaines’ refusal to address the issue only added fuel to the media fire.
Now Chip Gaines has finally addressed the controversy, though somewhat obliquely.
In a January 2 blog post on the couple’s website, he called on readers to “lovingly disagree” rather than be divided.
While he didn’t call out the Buzzfeed article directly, Gaines decried “sound bites being fed to us that seem fueled by judgement [sic], fear and even hatred.”
He added that he and his wife “refuse to be baited into using our influence in a way that will further harm an already hurting world.”
Much of the post will ring familiar to those who have heard the “love the sinner” philosophy employed by evangelicals.
“Joanna and I have personal convictions,” writes Gaines, 42. “One of them is this: we care about you for the simple fact that you are a person, our neighbor on planet Earth. It’s not about what color your skin is, how much money you have in the bank, your political affiliation, sexual orientation, gender, nationality or faith… We are not about to get in the nasty business of throwing stones at each other—don’t ask us to cause we won’t play that way.”
We probably won’t get anything more clear-cut about the Gaines’ views, though in four seasons, Fixer Upper has never featured a same-sex couple—a rarity for an HGTV series. In a statement, the network claimed its always supported diversity.
“We don’t discriminate against members of the LGBT community in any of our shows. HGTV is proud to have a crystal clear, consistent record of including people from all walks of life in its series.”

This acronym stands for bondage, domination/discipline, submission/sadism and, masochism, and is sometimes used as an umbrella term for kink. This can be misleading, however, because someone may have kinks that do not fall under these terms. For instance, a guy may be exclusively into fisting (see #13) or forced tickling. This guy is kinky — he has “unconventional” sexual tastes, at least by vanilla people’s standards — but he is not into BDSM.
Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2017
Today we celebrate the work and life of Martin Luther King Jr.
King was born in Atlanta in 1929. He began his pastoral career in Montgomery, Alabama, in 1954, a year before Rosa Parks famously refused to give up her seat. Montgomery's community leaders chose King to organize the resulting bus boycott. From then on, his was the most powerful and lyrical voice in the effort to end segregation in the United States. King's message of nonviolence and love -- delivered in magnificent speeches and masterful writing -- shaped the American civil rights movement and inspired activists worldwide. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964.
Today's Doodle, by guest artist Keith Mallett, captures one of the major themes of King's speeches and writing: unity. "All life is interrelated," he said. "We are all made to live together." King urged Americans of all races to keep "working toward a world of brotherhood, cooperation, and peace."
Martin Luther King Jr. may seem like the sort of leader who comes along only once every century or so, but King himself would disagree with that notion. He taught that we are all capable of lighting the way to "the bright daybreak of freedom and justice," and that we can unite to show that "love is the most durable power in the world."

She got to play with Antonio Sabato AND Djimon Hounsou in this pared-down video from Herb Ritts, which reminded us that even without a big dance number and costumes, Janet is iconic.
“She is fresh, sensual, womanly and vulnerable as she reveals herself to the camera,” said Ritts at the time. “We wanted to show this intimate and more personal side of Janet.”

Brad Renfro, the former child star who played a witness to a mob lawyer’s suicide in the 1994 legal thriller “The Client” and a suburban youth tutored in evil by an elderly Nazi war criminal in the 1998 film “Apt Pupil,” was found dead Tuesday morning in his Los Angeles home. He was 25.
Mr. Renfro’s girlfriend discovered his body, and the Los Angeles Police Department did not suspect foul play, The Los Angeles Times reported.
In recent years, Mr. Renfro was known as much for his legal troubles as for his acting career. He was charged with marijuana and cocaine possession in 1998, avoiding jail because of a plea bargain, according to The Associated Press. Mr. Renfro was an admitted heroin and methadone user who was photographed being arrested by Los Angeles police officers during a Christmas 2005 sweep of that city’s Skid Row. He was sentenced to three years’ probation for attempted possession of heroin and entered a drug rehabilitation program.
His career was short, but busy and varied. He was plucked from obscurity to play a frightened but resilient witness opposite Susan Sarandon and Tommy Lee Jones in “The Client,” an adaptation of a John Grisham best seller.
In a 1994 profile of Mr. Renfro in The New York Times, Joel Schumacher, director of “The Client,” said he was looking for “a tough and savvy survivor, a kid with an authentic Southern accent, a kid from a trailer park, like the character in the movie.”
He found Mr. Renfro, then all of 10, through the Knoxville Police Department. He had a reputation as a troublemaker and had recently played a drug dealer in a school production of an antidrug play. The film’s casting director, Mali Finn, said she intended to let Mr. Renfro audition for 10 to 15 minutes, but ended up letting the tape run for an hour. Mr. Schumacher told The Times that when he viewed the tape, “I was struck by the maturity and sadness of his eyes,” adding: “I couldn’t believe a 10-year-old that good-looking and smart who had a difficult life could actually act on the screen. It was too good to believe.”
Over the next decade Mr. Renfro carved out a niche playing inarticulate, vulnerable, alienated youths in everything from glossy Hollywood blockbusters to hardscrabble independent dramas. His acting was naturalistic and emotionally transparent; he played humiliation and frustration with disarming and sometimes upsetting frankness.
As Todd Bowden, the title character of “Apt Pupil,” a Stephen King adaptation by the filmmaker Bryan Singer, Mr. Renfro answered the spidery malevolence of his co-star Ian McKellen with a roiling, implosive blankness. Janet Maslin wrote in The Times that Mr. Renfro “put a diabolically wholesome face on Todd’s budding viciousness.”
In the 2001 Larry Clark drama “Bully,” about bored, amoral teenagers drawn into a murder conspiracy, Mr. Renfro was affecting as Marty Puccio, a sexually confused surfer seeking revenge against the title character (Nick Stahl), his peer group’s abusive alpha-male leader.
In the profile published before “The Client,” opened, the 12-year-old actor was asked how appearing in the film would change his life. “I’ll always be Brad Renfro, born on July 25, 1982,” he said. “Nothing’s going to change that. It won’t be any different.”

Leather is one of the most commonly fetishized materials, and certainly one of the oldest. Tom of Finland’s 1970s drawings of biker boys, clad in impossibly form-fitting leather, solidified leather as a staple of gay culture. Today, the leather community is global, united by national and international leather competitions that celebrate this fetish at gatherings like the Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco, International Mr. Leather in Chicago, and Folsom Berlin.
What does a leather event look like? It looks like throngs of men in leather harnesses, jock straps, jackets, boots, gloves, aprons, fully-body uniforms, and other garb. Since many leather fetishists are into many other fetishes and kinks, the leather community is generally considered synonymous with the kink community as a whole.
