Ruby Rose apologises for attacking Australian PM


The Orange Is The New Black star has apologised to Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott for branding him a “bigot” over his approach to marriage equality.

In an interview with Diva magazine last year, the Justin Bieber lookalike took aim at the politician, saying, “Don’t get me started on gay rights back home! Our Prime Minister is a sexist bigot. So equality is going to take some time.”

But that was not the first time she had attacked Abbot – the actress tweeted in 2013 that Abbott was a “drunk moron”.

“You are like a drunk moron who spills out of a pub and spews on the ground,” she added.

“You are that spew. That spew is you.”

However, when quizzed on the subject again recently, Rose told of her regrets at attacking the Australian leader and apologised making personal attacks, <a href="

A gay, African-American superhero is set to debut on the TV show ‘Arrow’.

The popular show – which has already featured the openly bisexual Canary, Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) – teased the introduction of another out superhero in its fourth season.

DC’s Geoff Johns told DC that in the upcoming year, the show will feature Mr Terrific – a superhero traditionally depicted as having a photographic memory and the ability to learn new skills incredibly quickly.

Johns told Digital Spy he will become part of the Green Arrow team, saying: “He’s going to work with Felicity, be a good friends of hers.

“We’re often asked when we’re going to add another LGBT character to the show and our version of Mr Terrific happens to be gay for anyone that cares about that kind of stuff.”

Ben & Kate star Echo Kellum has been cast in the role, playing the genius and Jus

French film auteur Sébastien Lifshitz has combed through vintage photos at garage sales and flea markets and eBay for more than 20 years, amassing a collection of old queer life.

Gazing through these photos introduces a new mystery: who took them, and why did such potentially risky images survive after leaving the photographer’s hands?

‘Looking’ Cancelation Was Very Painful For HBO’s Gay President


looking-renewed-season-2I thought the show, creatively, was really doing something that I hadn’t seen on any other show, particularly dealing with gay lives. As a gay man, in particular, I was very proud that there was a show that felt like it was dealing very honestly and openly with gay men and their lives, without putting them into a comedic mode.”

The former Olympian’s friends have voiced their worries after the star expressed her conservative political views.

Jenner, 65 – who has been praised for using her recognition to help the trans community – is shown asking her friends about the challenges trans people face in a new clip from her TV show I am Cait.
