Out On Stage: An Interview With Jose Llana Comments (0)

Jose Llana speaks with Broadway World about his The King and I tour, Donald vs. Hillary, a new Tyler Clementi musical and why he thinks hope trumps hate.

Most interestingly, he discusses his brief stint at a closeted pop star in the Philippines:

After Flower Drum Song [2002], I was invited to record an album in the Philippines. The P.R. tried to sell me as a pop star, a sex symbol. Though I had been out for about five or six years, that was an overwhelmingly negative experience. Suddenly, I had to change all my pronouns again and lie about having a girlfriend in the States. When I came back to America, I made a new dedication to living out because [the closet] killed my soul in many dark ways.

Great piece by Wayman Wong.

Manny Pacquiao: Animals > Gays Comments (0)

TmzVideo still via TMZ

According to TMZ, Manny Pacquiao—who gets paid money to beat people up—said in a TV interview in his native Philippines of gays:

It's common sense. Will you see any animals where male is to male and female is to female? ... The animals are better. They know how to distinguish male from female. If we approve [of] male on male, female on female, then man is worse than animals.

He quickly apologized—sorta—in a video in which he reaffirmed his stance against gay marriage, but in which he said he was sorry he hurt anyone by comparing gay people to animals. Gee, thanks!

Conservatives on Twitter are complaining about the “outrage” machine over what people say, but isn't this a case where we are not talking about PC nomenclature, but hate speech? Are gay people and their supporters not supposed to react to being told we are subhuman by an influential cultural figure who intends to run for president in the Philippines?

Floyd Mayweather has responded to Pacquiao's caveman POV.
