Da Brat made headlines when she shared an Instagram video revealing her relationship with Instagram entrepreneur Jesseca Dupart, aka BB Judy, 38.

Da Brat explained:

"I have never experienced this feeling. It's so overwhelming that often I find myself in a daze hoping to never get pinched to see if it's real so I can live in this dream forever."

On an episode of the Rickey Smiley Morning Show last Friday, the 45-year-old semi-retired rapper said she made the decision to come out of the closet because times have changed and the industry isn't as homophobic as it was in the '80s and '90s.

"I've always been an advocate of privacy, pretty much to protect the interest of the other party involved. Because if you're not used to this life and the scrutiny that come with it, it can break you."

Da Brat dumps out an ashtray while one of her ex-girlfriends looks on in a photo taken in 1994.

"I've been talked about for over 20 years or more so I'm kind of conditioned for it. My coat of armor is pretty thick so I learned what to say and what not to say and the battles that I decide to choose to fight. Most of the time I just stay silent and let people speculate."

A Fox News host is being called homophobic for his comments about San Francisco's "shelter in place" order. San Francisco was the first city to order residents to stay home during the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak.

Mark Steyn, who is a Fox News guest host, was filling in for Rush Limbaugh, who is undergoing chemotherapy for cancer.

Steyn told Limbaugh's radio listeners that the Bay Area is under quarantine because of "gay guys." He said San Francisco is under a "shelter in place" order to stay home because "a big gay apocalypse" would be blamed on President Donald Trump.

The coronavirus causes severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and potentially fatal pneumonia among the elderly population, particularly those with weak immunity, chronic illnesses such as AIDS, COPD and other respiratory-related problems.

"San Francisco has just ordered everyone to shelter in place, just to say, 'Stay in your apartment. Don't leave your apartment unless you need to go out to a grocery store or to a pharmacy or to a doctor's.' Why are they doing that?" Steyn asked. "Why is San Francisco the first to do that? Because they've got all the gay guys there."

He added San Francisco is "a big gay town," and they're the ones with all the compromised immune systems from all the protease inhibitors and all the other stuff. And they don't want all the gays dropping dead on the San Francisco mayor's watch. So that's why they've got all that sheltering in place there."

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has refused to order or approve a lockdown for any city within the state, despite Mayor Bill de Blasio threatening to order a lockdown of NYC.

Mass hysteria over the coronavirus outbreak drove the stock market down another 2,000 points on Wednesday, triggering a breaker that halted all trading for 15 minutes.

Miami Beach police say former Tallahassee mayor Andrew Gillum was found "inebriated" in a hotel room with a known homosexual male escort who was treated for a suspected meth overdose.

Police responded to a hotel room at the upscale Mondrian South Beach Hotel around 1 a.m. Friday and found Gillum in a room with Travis Dyson, a homosexual male escort and adult film star who may have overdosed on crystal meth.

In a police report obtained by conservative activist Candace Owens, medics treated Dyson, 30, for a suspected drug overdose and transported him to a local hospital, where he was evaluated and released.

Police observed Gillum, 40, in a bathroom vomiting in the toilet and officers found three plastic baggies containing "suspected crystal meth" on the bed and on the floor.

Police observed bed sheets soiled with "blood and feces," according to Owens' police source. She said Gillum, Dyson, who was naked, and the soiled bed sheets were captured on the officers' body cameras and that the video footage will be released.

Police were unable to communicate with Gillum due to his "inebriated state," the New York Times reported.

Aldo Mejias, 56, told police he lent Dyson his credit card to rent a room at the hotel around 4 p.m. Thursday. Mejias said he planned to meet up with Dyson later that night for drinks on South Beach.

Dyson and Gillum arrived at the room around 6 p.m. Thursday, and Mejias arrived just after 11 p.m. that night.

Dyson opened the door for Mejias and then walked over to the bed and collapsed. Mejias told the NY Times that Dyson was in the room with a man he did not know.

"I was seeing very shallow breathing," Mejias said of Dyson. Mejias said Gillum "was passed out on the floor, throwing up."

Mejias performed chest compressions on Dyson and called 911. After police returned to the hotel a second time to conduct a "welfare check" on Gillum, he was allowed to leave the hotel and police escorted him the short distance to his home, according to Owens.

Despite an earlier report by Miami Beach police that "arrests were made," Gillum was not arrested.

"At this time, the incident is not being investigated as a criminal matter, Officer Ernesto Rodriguez said in an email to The NY Times.

After the news broke on Friday, Gillum released a statement to the Miami Herald, saying he was in Miami for "a wedding celebration" when "first responders were called to assist one of my friends."

He added: "While I had too much to drink, I want to be clear that I have never used methamphetamines. I apologize to the people of Florida for the distraction this has caused our movement."

The former Democratic candidate for Governor of Florida didn't clarify which movement he was referring to. He was hired as a CNN contributor in 2019, after he was narrowly defeated by Republican Ron DeSantis in the election.

Gillum thanked "the incredible Miami Beach EMS team for their efforts" and he said he plans to spend the next few weeks with his wife of 11 years, R. Jai Gillum, and their three children, 5-year-old twins Caroline and Jackson and 2-year-old Davis. He also asked for privacy for his family.

In an interview with The Miami New Times newspaper, Dyson said he and Gillum met in the spring of last year and have been "friends for a while." He said he was not celebrating a wedding, which conflicted with Gillum's statement to The Herald.

"I personally was not celebrating a wedding," Dyson said. "I don't know if Gillum was in town for a wedding. He did not mention that."

Dyson then paused and hung up the phone without further comment.

House Rep. Matt Gaetz, who self-quarantined for 14 days after shaking hands with a man who had coronavirus, poked fun at Gillum in tweets on Friday.

"Everyone should respect @AndrewGillum's privacy as he explains why he was one of three men in a hotel room [with] 3 bags of meth, too impaired to talk to first responders. I know what you're all thinking - this is not very COVID-19 hygienic. #GillumSurge."

According to the police report, Gillum, 40, was arrested in a Miami Beach hotel room with two other men in various stages of undress. Police responded to the location after one of the men overdosed on crystal meth.

The drugs were in three small baggies on the bed and the floor in full view of cops. One of the men told police that when he arrived at the hotel shortly after 11 p.m. Thursday, Gillum and the person having the medical issue were "inside the room under the influence of an unknown substance."

The police observed Gillum, who was partially undressed, in a bathroom vomiting. He was unable to communicate with officers due to his level of inebriation.

Gillum confirmed he was the man in the police report. The failed gubernatorial candidate released a statement on Friday, calling his arrest a "distraction".

"I was in Miami last night for a wedding celebration when first responders were called to assist one of my friends. While I had too much to drink, I want to be clear that I have never used methamphetamines. I apologize to the people of Florida for the distraction this has caused our movement."

Gillum, who is married, added that he will spend "the next few weeks" with his family and asked for privacy during this embarrassing time.

Gillum and his wife of 11 years, R. Jai Howard, have three children. Gillum, a Democrat, served as the 126th Mayor of Tallahassee from 2014 to 2018.

Middle East censors objected to the line: "It's not easy being a new parent - my girlfriend's daughter got me pulling my hair out, okay?"

Waithe's animated cyclops officer made history as Disney's first openly homosexual character, according to Deadline.com.

But censors in Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and Saudi Arabia have banned the film from showing in any theaters within their territories.

Russia, which is notoriously anti-homosexual, changed the word "girlfriend" to "partner" and allowed the movie to show in theaters.

Onward earned $2 million in Thursday previews in North America, according to Deadline.com. The movie tracking $37 million - $40 million in opening weekend ticket sales.

Contestants Carlton and Diamond Jack did not make it to the alter after he confessed that he was bisexual.

Diamond was upset that Carlton kept his secret lifestyle from her. According to theJasmineBrand.com, Carlton and Diamond forgave each other on the reunion special.

Carlton's confession didn’t bring him the attention and press coverage that he had hoped for. Oprah and Ellen Degeneres didn't call him to book interviews.

He went off the deep end when the Black LGBT and T media accused him of using the bisexual lifestyle for attention.

The overly emotional Carlton took to social media to complain that his "celebrity friends” abandoned him after he came out.

Feeling alone and depressed, he wrote a series of suicidal notes to manipulate his social media followers into expressing false sympathy for him.

In a goodbye message on his Instagram story, Morton wrote:

"Today is one of those days where I don't want to be here. I feel extremely alone and unsupported. I've cried for help since Feb. 13. No one cares."

In another post, he wrote: "Goodbye everyone."

As a result of his Diva antics, the hashtag #BisexualMenExist trended on Twitter.com.

A dance coach for the Lifetime reality show "Bring It" was sentenced to only 9 months in prison for exposing a 16-year-old boy to HIV.

John Conner III was also sentenced to four years probation and he must register as a sex offender for life.

Conner, 30, pleaded guilty in November to criminal exposure to HIV, statutory rape by an authority figure and solicitation of a minor for indecent purposes.

Police said Conner met the teenager o social media in 2015 and invited the boy to join his Infamous Dancerettes dance team. Conner and the boy had unprotected sex on several occasions, according to the affidavit.

Conner didn't tell the teenager he was diagnosed with HIV in 2015. The teenager later tested positive for HIV.

After Conner cut a plea deal with the Memphis District Attorney's office, a judge sentenced him to only 9 months in prison and four months probation.

The DA decided Conner's crime was "minor" and punishable by less than a year in prison.

Lifetime's "Bring It" was a television dance competition that featured teams from the Mid-South, including Conner's.

Atlanta police say a man pretended to be same-sex oriented in order to gain the trust of a lesbian before raping her.

36-year-old Taurence Callagain met the unidentified woman at a MARTA commuter train station in Atlanta's West End in 2015, and the two struck up a conversation before exchanging numbers.

Police say Callagain pretended to be same-sex oriented to gain the woman's trust after she confided she was a lesbian.

According to a statement from the Fulton County District Attorney's office, "The victim is a lesbian and has a female partner who she was is in a relationship with when she met the defendant."

The statement continues: "Callagain led the victim to believe he was gay, so she was under the impression that their relationship was strictly platonic."

Weeks later, after the victim missed the last MARTA bus of the night, Callagain offered to give drive her home, according to the DA's office.

After stopping at his home to pick up marijuana, Callagain lured the victim inside the house to smoke weed.

The woman followed the man to his bedroom "when he began to strangle her and proceeded to violently rape her," according to the DA's office.

"During the rape, Callagain told the victim if she fought or screamed, 'I will get my boys to come in and hold you down.'"

After the rape, the victim fled the home and ran 3 miles in the middle of the night to her home. She later went to a hospital to seek treatment and called police.

Callagain, who is facing a separate aggravated assault case in Fulton County, claimed at his trial that the encounter was consensual.

He was convicted of rape on Tuesday. A sentencing hearing date has not been set.

In Georgia, punishment for a rape conviction can range from 25 years in prison to the death penalty.

Rickey Smiley is taking back that meme he re-posted about society punishing Black boys for wearing dreadlocks while praising Black boys for wearing dresses.

In a meme posted on his Instagram page, the comedian wrote:

Black boy: I want to wear locks to school
Society: Suspended!!! No graduation THUG!!!
Black boy: How about a dress?

The meme concludes with the hashtag "#SocialEngineering."

Smiley was alluding to the recent controversy surrounding Deandre Arnold, the 16-year-old boy who was banned from attending his prom until he cut off his dreadlocks.

The popular host of the syndicated Rickey Smiley Morning Show appears to have caved to the pressure after trans groups and their heterosexual allies contacted his radio advertisers.

In a rambling video on YouTube.com, Rickey addressed the controversy, saying he didn't actually create the meme, he simply re-posted it.

After complaining about the cancel culture coming for him, and saying he shouldn't have to apologize for expressing his opinions in a free country, Rickey concluded by apologizing to anyone he offended.

So far, rappers Young Thug and Lil Boosie have no plans to apologize for expressing similar opinions about Dwyane Wade's son, Zaya Wade.

In news you already knew: Rosario Dawson, girlfriend of failed presidential candidate Cory Booker, has come out as bisexual, after insisting she wasn't same-sex oriented.

The 40-year-old actress sparked rumors about her sexual orientation back in 2018, when she wrote during Pride Month: "Happy pride month! Sending love to my fellow lgbtq+ homies."

But while many people took the tweet to be a coming out announcement, Rosario told Bustle that she never meant it that way, insisting she has never had a same-sex relationship with a woman.

"People kept saying that I (came out)… I didn't do that," she said. "I mean, it's not inaccurate, but I never did come out come out. I mean, I guess I am now."

The Sin City star added: "I've never had a relationship in that space, so it's never felt like an authentic calling to me."

Rosario has been dating Booker since last year after he announced he was running for president. Twitter users cracked jokes at the odd couple's expense, saying Booker is a down-low closeted man and Dawson was his beard.

Many predicted the couple would announce their break up after Booker dropped out of the race. But the public ridicule only brought them closer together.

Reflecting on their relationship, Dawson said: "It's the first time I felt like I had to be responsible about my choice of love, which is a challenging thing to do. If you fall in love, you fall in love. But there's another aspect I had to consider: what this meant in (putting) a microscope on my family and particularly on my daughter." The actress adopted daughter Isabella, now 17, back in 2014.

Wendy Williams tearfully apologized to cross-dressing men after she criticized them for imitating biological women by wearing stereotypical feminine attire.

During Thursday's Hot Topics segment, the 55-year-old divorcée discussed "Galentine's Day," and observed that a few men in the audience were clapping.

Wendy told her audience how she really feels about men reinforcing gender stereotypes by wearing feminine dresses, skirts, high heels and handbags.

"And stop wearing our skirts and our heels. Just saying, girls, what do we have for ourselves? Looky here now, gay men, you'll never be the woman that we are, No matter how gay."

Her criticism did not go over well with LGBT+ members of her TV crew or the LGBT+ community, who reminded Wendy that they are half of her television audience.

On Friday, Wendy tearfully apologized and promised to do better. "I'll start by saying I apologize, I did not mean to offend my LGBTQ+ community on yesterday's show," she said.

"I did not realize until I got home, and I watched the second running of our show. I didn't mean to hurt anybody's feelings. I'm just having a conversation. If you know me long enough, then you know, I live and let live every day. Life is too short. I'm 55 years old, and maybe I sounded like your auntie, your mother, your big sister, or somebody out of touch. I'm not out of touch, except for perhaps yesterday by saying what I said. I deeply apologize. I will do better."

Wendy Williams is on the hot seat again - this time she upset cross-dressing men for impersonating women by "wearing our skirts and heels."

The popular daytime talk show host made the comments during Thursday's episode of The Wendy Williams Show.

During her Hot Topics segment, the 55-year-old divorcée discussed "Galentine's Day," and observed that a few men in the audience were clapping.

After holding her tongue for years about the LGBT+ agenda, Wendy told her audience how she really feels about men reinforcing gender stereotypes by wearing feminine dresses, skirts, high heels and handbags.

"If you're a man, stop clapping, you're not even a part of this," she said. "You don't understand the rules of the day. It's women going out and getting saucy and then going home (alone). You're not a part. I don't care if you're gay. You don't get a period every 28 days. You can do a lot that we do, but I get offended by the idea that we go through something you will never go through."

The single mom of one continued:

"And stop wearing our skirts and our heels. Just saying, girls, what do we have for ourselves? Looky here now, gay men, you'll never be the woman that we are, No matter how gay."

Needless to say, Wendy's speech did not go over well on Twitter.

Lena Waithe and longtime partner Alano Mayo split just 2 months after announcing they they tied the knot in August.

The split was announced via a joint statement on Wednesday, Jan. 22.

"After careful thought and consideration, we have decided to part ways," the statement read. "We have nothing but support for one another and ask that you respect our privacy during this time."

While their split seemed abrupt, sources exclusively tell lovebscott.com that their relationship was on the rocks long before they tied the knot.

Waithe and Mayo hopped the broom back in August 2019 at a courthouse in San Francisco.

"We didn't make any announcements or a big... We went to San Francisco. We went to the courthouse," Waithe explained during an appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Show. "Got married right in front of [late gay rights activist and politician] Harvey Milk's bust."

The 'Master of None' star told Degeneres the impulsive marriage was Mayo's idea.

"[It was] her idea, as all good things are," Waithe continued. "And she was just driving and she saw the courthouse and she said, 'We should get married there.' And I said, 'Cool, I'm down.'"

But, according to lovebscott.com's sources -- the quickie wedding came after multiple accusations that Waithe cheated on Mayo. Waithe reportedly agreed to the nuptials to satisfy Mayo.

Waithe and Mayo dated for several years before they got engaged on Thanksgiving in 2017.

A drag queen issued a stern warning to parents to keep their children away from the drag culture. Kitty Demure (not pictured) created a video warning parents: the drag scene is not for kids.

Demure's warning comes as more libraries are hosting drag queen story hour for children in some communities.

Screenshot: Twitter.com

Demure (pictured) describes himself as a "non-conformist gay who doesn't follow the leftist hive mind."

He said the sex-obsessed drag queen culture is no place for children.

"What in the h*ll has a drag queen ever done to make you have so much respect for them, and admire them so much, other than put on makeup and jump on the floor and writhe around and do sexual things on stage?" Demure said in the video.

"I have absolutely no idea why you would want that to influence your child," he added. "Would you want a stripper or a porn star to influence your child? It makes no sense at all. A drag queen performs in a night club for adults. There is a lot of filth that goes on, a lot of sexual stuff that goes on, and backstage there's a lot of nudity, sex and drugs," he continued.

"So I don't think this is an avenue you would want your child to explore. They could explore dressing up at home, like we all did, like all gay boys did. We all dressed [in drag] at home and we had a great time."

Demure said exposing children to drag queens is "extremely, extremely irresponsible on your part." He added:

"You might want to look like you're with it, that you're cool, that you're woke, that you're not a nazi, you're not a homophobe... whatever it may be. But you can raise your child to be just a normal, regular, everyday child without including them in gay, sexual things."

Demure said exposing children to the drag community is actually hurting the community.

"We have already had a reputation of being pedophiles and being perverts and deviants. We don't need you to bring your children around."

Demure urged parents to keep their children home or entertain them with trips to Disneyland, Chuck E. Cheese, or the circus.

He suggested taking teenagers to the gay clubs when they turn 18 - because that's an adult thing.

Kanye West has booked his Sunday Service choir to sing at a controversial evangelical event this weekend.

The rapper's gospel choir is booked to perform at Awaken 2020, a religious gathering that has sparked outrage from the LGBTQ community for its lineup of speakers.

The event is scheduled for the Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Arizona on Saturday, Jan. 18.

Cindy Jacobs, who has been openly hostile towards gay marriage, and Lou Engle, an advocate of Uganda's anti-homosexuality bill, are booked to speak during the event, WENN.com reports.

Engle had high praise for Kanye, who gave up secular music to lead the unwashed masses to Jesus.

"We believe Kanye is a sign to this nation that in a moment, thousands and thousands can be swept into the kingdom when (God) converts key people and their voices will be like thunder," Engle told The Western Journal.

Kanye, 42, was not fazed by the backlash on social media. The producer and his wife Kim Kardashian, 39, watched the LA Lakers defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers at the Staples Center on Jan. 13.

Fans online expressed their indignation and outrage that Kanye has agreed to allow his choir to perform at the religious gathering.

"People will still stan (stalk) Kanye despite him legitimizing and supporting radical anti-LGBTQ evangelicals/bigots," one fan tweeted, while another wrote: "What a f--king a--hole".

Kanye is rumored to be taking his Sunday Service choir on a world tour later this year.

Billy Porter turned heads when he attended the 77th annual Golden Globe Awards wearing a long white feather train attached to his white tuxedo jacket. The train was so long it required an attendant to carry it for Porter.

Photo by Daniele Venturelli/WireImage

The flamboyant 50-year-old virgo looked stunning and owned the red carpet. Porter is known for his extravagant one-off outfits. At the 2019 Met Gala he wore a gold gilded bodysuit and he was carried in on a golden litter by six muscular shirtless men.

At the 2019 Oscars Porter wore a fabulous Christian Siriano gown with a matching tuxedo jacket.

TIME magazine asked the former R&B singer for the inspiration behind his clothes.

"When you're an actor, the clothes are part of the character, the clothes help create what the character becomes, so when I bring that into this space I can do anything because I know what the character is," he said.

"You must wear the clothes, the clothes must not wear you," Porter added. "That's a theater thing - you have to become the character or else you ain't no good!"

Porter's stylist, Sam Ratelle, said the concept of fashion as theater is something he shares with Porter.

"Billy and I both come from the theater community, so this is costume design for me on the highest scale," said Ratelle who is pictured with Porter at the Golden Globes.

"The red carpet is pretty much a stage, it's theater. It's just a different stage and a different way of expressing yourself. Billy allowing me to direct him is just such a gift because he's so open and willing to do so many things, so for me, that's really a joy."

Saved by the Bell fans have mixed reactions to the news that a cross-dresser has been cast in the reboot of their favorite high school situation comedy.

Actor Josie Totah, 18, plays the role of Lexi, who is described as a "sharp-tongued cheerleader and the most popular girl at Bayside High."

According to NBC News, Lexi is "both admired and feared by her fellow students."

The reboot TV series will follow a group of low-income, diverse and inclusive high school students who are transferred to Bayside High, courtesy of a program created by California Governor Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar).

The reboot is produced by Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkeley, who will reprise their roles on the series.

Lopez, 46, has had a change of heart since expressing his disapproval of parents who allow their minor children to switch genders.

"My God if you're three-years-old and you're saying you're feeling a certain way you think you're a boy or a girl whatever the case may be... I just think it's dangerous as a parent to make that determination then, OK well then you're gonna be a boy or a girl," Lopez told Candace Owens in July.

"It's sort of alarming and my gosh, I just think about the repercussions later on," he said.

But the only repercussions were felt by Lopez, who quickly retracted his statements and apologized to the LGBT+ community amid a fierce public backlash.

A Washington man was arrested Tuesday in connection with the murder of a male-to-female (MtF) who went missing in June 2019.

Nikki Kuhnhausen, 17, was reported missing after planning to meet up with David Bogdanov, 25, on Snapchat. Kuhnhausen was last seen alive on June 6.

On Dec. 7, a hiker discovered human skeletal remains in a remote area of Larch Mountain in Clark County, according to Crimeonline.com.

The remains were later identified as Kuhnhausen, according to KPTV. Bogdonov told investigators in early October that he and Kuhnhausen had gotten into a dispute, and he kicked the teenager out of his car. He said that was the last he'd seen of Kuhnhausen.

But police now believe Bogdonov strangled Kuhnhausen after he found out he was born a male.

"We suspect that there was probably some interaction where, and by his own admission, that he determined that ... she was transgender," said Vancouver police Lieutenant Tom Ryan.

Ryan added that cross-dressing was offensive to Bogdonov's culture.

Cell phone records revealed, on June 6, Bogdonov's phone was in the same remote area where Kuhnhausen's remains were later found.

Hallmark's decision to pull a commercial showing 2 lesbians kissing triggered outrage on Twitter.com.

The family-oriented network pulled four same-sex commercials after conservative groups launched petitions signed by thousands of concerned parents.

In one ad, two brides kiss after exchanging vows at the altar. One woman wears a wedding dress, the other wears a men's tailored suit.

The commercials were paid for by Zola.com, an inclusive wedding planning company that purchased six ad spots. Four of the 6 ads feature same-sex couples.

A petition created by the conservative group One Million Moms (1MM) garnered over 25,000 signatures. The group's mission is to "fight against indecency".

The organization pleaded with Bill Abbott, CEO of Crown Media Family Networks, Hallmark's parent company.

"Please reconsider airing commercials with the same-sex couples, and please do not add LGBT movies to the Hallmark Channel. Such content goes against Christian and conservative vaults that are important to your primary audience. You will lose viewers if you cave to the LGBT agenda."

The group said the Zola commercials made Hallmark Channel unsafe for family viewing.

A similar petition on Christian website LifesiteNews.com garnered over 50,000 signatures.

It didn't take long for Hallmark to realize the error of its ways.

"We are not allowed to accept creatives that are deemed controversial," said an account rep.

Liberals on Twitter vented their outrage under the hashtag #BoycottHallmarkChannel.

Valerie Jarrett, who served as the senior advisor to former President Barack Obama, was among the vocal critics.

"Controversial? Really, ?@Hallmark?? What a horrible message you are sending not just to all of the same sex couples and their loved ones, but to everyone. #lovemeanslove."

Television personality Baker Machado tweeted:

"he declined to comment on why a nearly identical ad featuring a bride and groom kissing was not rejected."

Another Twitter user said critics of the ads are "okay with voting for a guy who had sex with Stormy Daniels while his third wife was nursing his infant child..."

But others were pleased with Hallmark's decision.

One user tweeted: "I will not be boycotting Hallmark Channel or their cards. They have [every] right to make their own decision."

Another user tweeted:

"It's the only channel that moms and dads don't have to monitor for sex or violence or 4 letter words. Leave Hallmark alone, same sex couples are a fact of life."

A Florida man was arrested after he abandoned his preteen son by the son of the road because he believed the boy was same-sex attracted.

Haines City police say Evenaud Julmeus, 30, dropped off the distraught boy in front of a closed police station with a bag that contained some clothes.

A bystander called police after witnessing Julmeus drop off the boy who was distraught and crying.

Julmeus reportedly caught his son viewing male pornography videos on his cell phone, according to the affidavit obtained by Fox News.

The victim told police Julmeus "became very upset" after he found the videos. The boy, whose name and age were redacted from the affidavit, told police his father ordered him to pack a duffel bag and that he was taking him to a police station to find a new home.

Police say Julmeus did not attempt to contact law enforcement or child protective services to inform them of the boy's circumstances.

After the boy's mother learned what happened, she went to go look for him at the police station. She left her other two minor children with Julmeus, the affidavit said.

Julmeus fled the home when police arrived, leaving the two minor children alone.

Julmeus has been charged with three counts of negligent child abuse without bodily harm and turned himself in, police said. Julmeus is being held without bond.

Filmmaker J.J. Abrams, left, praised geriatric actor Billy Dee Williams after the 82-year-old spoke openly about being gender fluid.

In an interview with Esquire magazine, Williams, who first appeared in the Star Wars franchise in 1980 movie The Empire Strikes Back, explained that he uses both male and female pronouns when referring to himself.

"I'm a very soft person. I'm not afraid to show that side of myself," Williams said. "I never tried to be anything except myself. I think of myself as a relatively colorful character who doesn't take himself or herself too seriously."

"And you see I say 'himself' and 'herself,' because I also see myself as feminine as well as masculine," he added.

Speaking with entertainment TV show Extra, Abrams, who directs the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, in which Williams reprises his role as Lando Calrissian, celebrated the actor as the "absolute greatest".

"I think, honestly, that comment and whatever he meant by it, it speaks to his openness," Abrams gushed. "He has such an amazing life experience and he is such a wonderful guy to talk to in-between takes because he will just start referencing relationships he's had with these legends in music and film and dance and theater."

Abrams added: "No one has a smile like Billy Dee and to have him, to get to work with him at all, has been such a joy. He is just the sweetest."

But not everyone is happy about the actor's revelation. Many of his elderly female fans believe the actor is going senile. They wish he had taken his secret to the grave with him.

Younger Black women complain that Hollywood is turning eligible straight men against them by offering juicy movie roles and other perks to actors who come out as homosexual or trans.

NeNe Leakes, right, was mistaken for drag queen Tiffany T. Fantasia, left, in South Beach, according to Page Six. The 51-year-old Real Housewives of Atlanta reality TV personality was mistaken for the popular drag performer when she stopped by drag hot spot the Palace.

A witness tells Page Six that after NeNe entered the club, "A group of tipsy boys shouted, 'You'd better work it, Tiffany T. Fantasia!' But it was NeNe."

The spy said NeNe laughed off the mistaken identity. "She entered and played it off like a true diva. She walked in with a fierce walk and winked at the table."

Once fans realized NeNe wasn’t the world famous drag performer, the reality star was swarmed with "selfie requests". Leakes has previously frequented the bar with Bravo TV personality Andy Cohen.

Dwyane Wade responded to online criticism from critics who said his son Zion Wade was dressed sexually suggestively in a family holiday photo. Many outraged social media users say Zion was dressed inappropriately for a 12-year-old child.

Actress Gabrielle Union posted a Thanksgiving photo that showed her minor stepson wearing acrylic stiletto nails and a cropped top that revealed his belly. Then-11-year-old Zion "came out" during Miami's Pride parade in April.

Social media users blamed Union for posting the photo to divert attention away from the fact that she was fired as a judge on America's Got Talent for being difficult to work with on the set.

Many accused the 47-year-old actress and her 37-year-old husband of promoting an agenda and "sacrificing" Zion to Hollywood pedophiles.

But Wade did not back down. In a tweet sent out on Saturday, Nov. 30, he called the criticism "stupidity" and vowed to continue to allow his son to dress sexually inappropriately for a minor.

"I've seen some post-thanksgiving hate on social about my family photo. Stupidity is apart of this world we live in - so i get it. But here's the thing - I've been chosen to lead my family not y'all. So we will continue to be us and support each other with pride, love & a smile!"

Many liberal blog headlines defended Wade for allowing Zion's sexually suggestive outfit.

Jezebel magazine referred to concerned social media users as "assholes" and the Atlanta-based magazine described Wade as an "excellent and supportive dad."

Bet.com called social media users "trolls" for showing their concern for a minor child.

And E! Online also referred to social media users as "trolls" for reacting to a child's inappropriate style of dress.

Girls in one Illinois public school district will now share restrooms and locker rooms with boys who identify as girls.

The Palatine-Schaumburg High School District 211 voted unanimously to give male-to-female transgender students unrestricted access to girls locker rooms and restrooms.

Previously, cross-dressers and male-to-female transgenders had to use the nurse's office or private stalls to change clothes, according to CBS 2 Chicago.

The school board took up the issue after a MTF transgender student, known as "Student A," wanted to use the girls' locker room, but was denied access in 2015.

The federal Office of Civil Rights, under the Obama administration at the time, said denying access to women's restrooms was a violation of non-discrimination law and gave the district 30 days to comply or else jeopardize its Title IX funding.

The district caved and allowed that student to use a private changing stall in the girls' locker room, but that wasn't sufficient. MTF trans and cross-dressers want to observe biological females in female-only spaces.

Using a private restroom defeats that purpose. Which is why there is no push by the LGBT community for private restrooms for trans individuals.

Saturday Night Live cast member Bowen Yang lashed out at the Sara Lee corporation for defending their brand from off-color, homosexual jokes after SNL aired a gay-themed sketch on Saturday, Nov. 16.

According to TVLine.com, the sexually charged sketch featured musical host Harry Styles, pictured right, as Dillan, a social media manager who was called into a meeting for posting "off-brand activity" on the Sara Lee company Instagram account.

The off-brand activity included sexually suggestive comments on a Nick Jonas post, including "Wreck me daddy" and "Destroy me king." There were also comments left by the @SaraLeeBread handle on a random Instagram user's account, including sexually suggestive emojis that imply Dillan wants to "get railed to death".

In one comment, Dillan tweeted:

"Feeling really depressed after threesome. What was supposed to be a fantasy ended up more rejection. Must get rid of toxic in community."

Another Dillan comment read:

"A little moody after being used. Why do guys freak out when I ask them to spit in my mouth? Need a real king that can handle. It's 8 am and have to go to hell job at sara lee. A little in my head after another threesome."

The SNL comedy sketch was inspired by the ongoing fan belief that Styles, 25, is a repressed homosexual who is trapped in the closet.

Styles, a former member of the British boy band One Direction, has repeatedly said he is not a homosexual, but he does claim to be gender fluid and trysexual.

After the sketch aired on SNL, Yang, who is openly homosexual, took to Twitter.com to apologize to Sara Lee for using their brand in his comedy sketch without permission.

"Me and prodigal son [Julio Torres] made Mz. @Harry_Styles say queer nonsense," he tweeted. "Very very very sorry to everyone at @SaraLeeDesserts."

That should have been the end of it. But Harry Styles' fans took to the @SaraLeeBread IG account and left 1,700+ mostly sexually suggestive comments, including "Wreck me daddy" and "Destroy me king."

Understandably, the dessert corporation disabled the comment section on Instagram to protect their wholesome brand - which outraged Yang.

"Sara Lee disabling and deleting IG comments," he tweeted. "Wow they really could have been THE bread for f*gs."

A Sara Lee spokesperson responded to the criticism, saying:

"We didn't participate in creating the skit and its content doesn't align with Sara Lee Bread's brand. But, we all know SNL pushes the envelope for laughs and we are taking it in stride."

The spokesperson's statement - that SNL's homosexual "content doesn't align with Sara Lee Bread's brand" further angered the LGBT+ community.

Because homosexuality is rooted in narcissism, some homosexuals respond out of anger when asked to respect the opinions of others.

Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star Cynthia Bailey's daughter Noelle Robinson came out as sexually fluid, which basically means she is unsure about her sexual identity.

According to Rhymeswithsnitch.com, Noelle came out to her mother while the Bravo cameras were rolling.

Noelle, 20, moved to California to be closer to her mother, who is divorced from Peter Thomas. During a conversation, Cynthia, 51, mentions Noelle has her pick of the cute boys hanging around. But Noelle corrects her and reveals she goes both ways.

During the ensuing conversation Noelle explains that she is "fluid", which is another way of saying she flip flops because she is confused about her sexuality.

Some say Noelle's newfound "fluid" sexuality is manufactured for reality TV. Lending credence to the theory is the fact that Noelle has a close bond with her father, the world's most handsome actor, Leon.

Many wonder how Noelle could be confused about her sexuality if she had a close bond with her father. That leaves her mother as the culprit.

A teenage drag queen "accidentally" flashed minor children during a Drag Queen Story Hour event in Hennepin County, Minnesota.

According to published reports, the incident happened while a drag queen named Sasha Sosa, was reading to children at Hennepin County Library.

The child advocacy group Child Protection League Action captured a series of images of Sosa exposing himself to the children.

Child Protection League Action said the story time event represented taxpayer funded "debauchery and sexual grooming."

According to the group, Sosa is 18 or 19 years old and regularly performs at strip clubs alongside 'Gemini Valentine', who also read books to children at the library while wearing a revealing leotard.

The Hennepin County Library reportedly failed to conduct a background check on the two performers before the event.

Parental groups routinely protest similar events held at libraries and schools, saying some of the performers are sex offenders.

Earlier this year, Summit.news published photos showing young children lying on top of a drag queen during a 'Drag Queen Story Time' event in Portland, Oregon.

32-year-old Albert Garza, who read to children at a Drag Queen Story Hour event in Houston, later turned out to be a registered sex offender who was convicted of assaulting an 8-year-old boy in 2008.

Democrats and progressives support the drag queen story time events and openly encourage children as young as 7 to take puberty blocker drugs to change their sex.

Terry Bean, left, a high-profile LGBT+ activist and Obama donor, was arrested and charged with using a computer while conspiring to prevent a 15-year-old boy from testifying against him and his ex-boyfriend after they allegedly had sex with the teenager in an Oregon hotel room.

Bean, 71, was arrested on October 30 and charged with two counts of felony 3rd-degree sodomy and misdemeanor sexual abuse. He was released from jail on $3,000 bond the same day.

His then-attorney, Derek Ashton (pictured right), was arrested hours earlier and also posted a $3,000 bond. Ashton is a prominent Portland attorney who once represented the Portland mayor. Both Bean and Ashton are charged with an elaborate scheme to conceal the whereabouts of the then-teenage victim to prevent him from testifying against Bean.

Bean is a prominent land developer in Portland and a co-founder of one the largest LGBT+ organizations in America: the Human Rights Campaign. He raised over $500,000 for former President Barack Obama's re-election campaign.

Bean was originally arrested in 2014, at age 66, for arranging a sex hookup with a 15-year-old boy after meeting him on an online dating app.

Bean's ex-boyfriend, 25-year-old Kiah Lawson, was also arrested for having sex with the teen in the hotel. Bean and Lawson both filed restraining orders against each other. Lawson eventually dropped his restraining order but Bean's restraining order still stands.

The case was dropped in 2015 after the boy went missing and prosecutors were unable to find him. Prosecutors reopened the case in August after locating the now 20-year-old victim who detailed the extraordinary lengths that were undertaken to protect the high-profile friend of a sitting president.

The case began to unravel in 2015 when Ashton asked a judge to approve a $220,000 payment to the teenager to make the whole case go away. The judge said no, but the men paid the boy anyway.

Paying off a victim is legal in certain criminal cases in Oregon if a judge approves it. But bribing a victim or witness to make a criminal charge go away is a crime.

At the time, Bean released a statement claiming he was exonerated and "this nightmare never should have even begun."

"I take some measure of comfort that the world now knows what I have always known — that I was falsely accused and completely innocent of every accusation that was made," Bean's statement said.

Prosecutors actively searched for the boy to get him to testify against Bean, but the teenager was nowhere to be found. At least three Portland attorneys conspired to conceal the boy's location.

The victim, who is reportedly Black, later told prosecutors that, after he received the $220,000, his own attorney, Lori Deveny, arranged to hide him in her girlfriend, Deanna Wray's cabin in a remote location in Oregon. Wray is also an attorney in Portland.

The scheme involved cash exchanging hands, a "burner" cell phone, and the disabling of a Lojack tracking device on a rental car.

"She told me not to talk to certain people, she told me to go on the run at a certain point," the boy reportedly told a detective in reference to his lawyer, Deveny. "So, if I did testify I was told I wasn't supposed to get my money. So that's why I did not testify. And that’s why my attorney told me to go on the run."

The Portland Tribune first reported that a legal assistant to Wray, who was nervous that the case was reopened, went to her then-law firm to confess that she was involved in helping the teen disappear.

Bean met Lawson in 2013. He was immediately smitten with the "stunning" mixed race young man. Bean put Lawson up in a luxury apartment and paid his rent as well as gave him $1,600 a month for expenses.

Bean, who is wealthy and very well-connected, took Lawson on trips around the world and introduced him to his high-profile friends, including then-President Barack Obama during a private party at the White House.

Lawson is seen speaking to then-President Obama at the White House in a photo posted on his Facebook page in 2014.

According to Gay America Blog, Lawson has a lengthy criminally record that includes assault and battery on previous boyfriends.

More arrests are expected, and multiple attorneys will likely be disbarred for obstruction of justice.
