    "Star Trek" icon George Takei has responded to an accusation of sexual assault made by a former model and actor who alleged an incident at Takei's home in 1981. In a series of tweets Saturday morning, Takei writes that the events "simply did not occur." He adds that he does not remember Scott R Brunton, who made the allegations in a THR interview which ran on Friday. "I am as shocked and bewildered at these claims as you must feel reading them," Takei continues to his 2.8M followers. Takei, who played Mr. Sulu on the original “Star Trek,” and who...

    Excerpt: The two men went back to the actor's condo for a drink the same night. "We have the drink and he asks if I would like another," Brunton recalls. "And I said sure. So, I have the second one, and then all of a sudden, I begin feeling very disoriented and dizzy, and I thought I was going to pass out. I said I need to sit down and he said sit over here and he had the giant yellow beanbag chair. So I sat down in that and leaned my head back and I must have passed out."...

    The Palm Springs, Calif., City Council is entirely LGBT or queer after two new members were elected to the council Tuesday.

Christy Holstege, who identifies as bisexual, won the second open seat on the city council. They beat out four other candidates in Tuesday’s election, the Desert Sun reported. First openly transgender African American woman elected Middleton won about 31% of the vote while Holstege won with 30% of the vote in her favor, the Desert Sun reports. Their election means that...

    "What disgusts me about Kevin was how safe he did feel. He knew he could fondle me in a room with my father and that I wouldn't say a word. And I didn't," the actor wrote in a column for Buzzfeed News. Harry Dreyfuss, son of Richard Dreyfuss, has come forward to share his own experience with Kevin Spacey, who has been accused of harassment and assault by over 10 men.

    Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos, who performed in several plays at London’s Old Vic theater when Kevin Spacey was artistic director there from 2004 to 2015, has accused the House of Cards star of sexual harassment. “I myself had a couple of unpleasant encounters with Spacey that were on the edge of being considered assault,” Cavazos wrote in a recent Facebook post. “It seems the only requirement was to be a male under the age of 30 for Mr. Spacey to feel free to touch us.” The 35-year-old actor, said, “there are a lot of us who have a ‘Kevin Spacey...

    The news cycles don't take breaks on the weekends anymore. Hollywood keeps reeling from the aftermath of the still worsening Harvey Weinstein scandal, and another accusation was leveled in a new direction on Sunday night. The Wrap reported that “Star Trek: Discovery” actor Anthony Rapp on Sunday claimed that Oscar winner Kevin Spacey, star of the hit TV series, 'House of Cards', 'tried to seduce' him decades ago when he was a 14-year-old actor appearing on Broadway." In an interview with BuzzFeed, Rapp said that a then-26-year-old Spacey invited him to a party in 1986 and "placed him on his...

    The season 2 premiere of Disney Channel's coming-of-age series "Andi Mack," starring Peyton Elizabeth Lee, will feature a first for the channel when Joshua Rush's character, Cyrus, discovers he has feelings for a male classmate, played by Asher Angel. Ultimately, Cyrus comes out as gay to one of his best friends, Buffy, played by Sofia Wylie. Her response, according to Disney, "makes for positive role models for kids and adult viewers." "'Andi Mack' is a story about tweens figuring out who they are," Disney Channel said in a statement on Tuesday. "Everyone involved in the show takes great care in...

    'This is a place where adults have more direct and inappropriate connection with children than probably anywhere else in the world,' claimed former child actor Corey Feldman. Last week, former child actor Corey Feldman (Stand by Me, The Goonies) tweeted that he'd been asked for a statement about Harvey Weinstein’s sexual-harassment and rape allegations. It makes sense, since he has spent years speaking out about sexual abuse in Hollywood-not of women, but of young men. He has long alleged that pedophilia is the worst problem in Hollywood and that it's in part responsible for his best friend Corey Haim's eventual...

    On September 14th, the right-wing pundit Ann Coulter, who last year published a book titled “In Trump We Trust,” expressed what a growing number of Americans, including conservatives, have been feeling since the 2016 election. The previous day, President Trump had dined with Democratic leaders at the White House, and had impetuously agreed to a major policy reversal, granting provisional residency to undocumented immigrants who came to America as children. Republican legislators were blindsided. Within hours, Trump disavowed the deal, then reaffirmed it. Coulter tweeted, “At this point, who doesn’t want Trump impeached?” She soon added, “If we’re not getting...

    WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump delivered a speech at the Values Voter Summit on Friday, hosted by the far-right Christian organization The Family Research Council. The convention also featured an exhibit on gay conversion therapy, which seeks to navigate homosexuals and their family members from an anti-gay perspective. The Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays (PFOX) organization, which was founded in 1998 "to be an alternative to the misinformed gay family groups which insist that parents can only prove their love for their gay child if they support gay rights and affirm their child's self-proclaimed gay identity," distributed a...

    A successful Dallas businessman pledging to spend in the seven figures out of his own bank account to run for governor in 2018 should be a great get for Texas Democrats. Yet the party doesn't seem to be getting behind Jeffrey Payne, whose business happens to be a gay bar. Payne, owner of gay leather bar The Dallas Eagle and winner of both the international and Texas Mr. Leather competitions in 2009, officially launched his campaign this week saying, "There's no reason to think that someone who is gay can't do a job, and here it's being governor and...

    A lesbian police officer might have helped save his life, but House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana is still planning to speak at a conference for an anti-gay group. Scalise will address the Family Research Council’s annual Values Voter Summit on Oct. 13 in Washington, D.C. The FRC is an anti-abortion, anti-gay conservative group and lobbying organization. FRC’s President Tony Perkins wrote a memo about the upcoming appearance, referencing the June shooting at a Virginia baseball field where Scalise and other Republicans were practicing for an upcoming charity game. The congressman was shot in the hip. “There were times...

    A gay coffee shop owner in Seattle decided to kick out a group of Christian anti-abortion protesters, going on an expletive-laden, extremely offensive rant that was recorded and posted on Facebook. The group, Abolish Human Abortion, appeared not to be bothering anyone.  They weren't in the shop to proselytize or hand out literature.  They just wanted a cup of coffee. What they got was an obscene, even blasphemous rant from an unbalanced store owner. Daily Caller: The owner heatedly tells the Christians to leave his shop immediately in a video posted to Facebook by Abolish Human Abortion, Christian group...

    Salling will serve four to seven years in prison as part of the deal. Following his release from prison, he will be under supervision for 20 years, must register as a sex offender and must refrain from contact with children under 18, per documents obtained by the Daily News. Police arrested Salling and raided his Sunland home in December 2015 and seized a laptop, hard drive and flash drive they say contained images and videos depicting child pornography.

    American artist Macklemore sang in support of gay rights at one of Australia's biggest annual sporting events during the country's vote on same-sex marriage. The singer performed a set ahead of kick-off in the National Rugby League (NRL) grand final in Sydney. Opponents had called for the song Same Love to be left out of the show to stop the event becoming "politicised". But Macklemore said it "was one of the greatest honours of my career". Australians are in the middle of a postal vote on whether gay marriage should be introduced. The poll is non-binding for the government, but...

    Two men have become the first gay couple to marry in Germany, on the day gay marriage became legal there. Karl Kreile and Bodo Mende, a couple for 38 years, exchanged their vows at the town hall in Schöneberg, Berlin. Registry offices in several German cities were opening, unusually, on Sunday to allow couples to wed on the first day it was legally possible. Getting married will give gay couples the same tax advantages and adoption rights as heterosexual couples. Germany has allowed same-sex partners to enter into registered partnerships since 2001, but these did not give couples exactly the...

    A leaflet available at UKIP's conference has compared the "alternative lifestyle" of gay people to that of Hitler and the Yorkshire Ripper. The leaflet, titled 'Homosexuality - the real alternative', was available on a stand this morning for the Support 4 The Family group at UKIP's annual get-together in Torquay. The conservative group did not write the leaflet, but does oppose gay marriage and transgender rights, and campaigns against what it calls "homosexual activism and gender bending at school." Signed by two Belfast clergyman, the leaflet says: "The phrase 'abusers of themselves with mankind' in the Bible... refers to the...

    Who's next in North Korea? By Choe Sang-Hun International Herald Tribune TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2005 SEOUL Kim Jong Il, the "Dear Leader" of North Korea, is pushing an age - 63 - when he is widely expected to designate a successor who will carry the mantle of power he inherited from his own father in the Communist world's first and only dynasty. But he has problems. His eldest son, Kim Jong Nam, 34, has not been home for years, wandering in self-imposed exile overseas and reportedly on the run from hit men hired by supporters of his stepbrothers. His second...

    Brazilian activists and celebrities have condemned a court ruling that approves a "cure" for gay people. Waldemar de Carvalho, a federal judge in the capital Brasilia, backed a psychologist who had her licence revoked for offering so-called "conversion therapy". Rozangela Justino is an evangelical Christian who has called homosexuality "a disease". Critics have called the ruling regressive and medically unsound. Brazil's Federal Council of Psychology banned psychologists from offering treatments that claim to change people's sexuality in 1999. It said in a statement that the decision "opens the dangerous possibility of the use of sexual reversion therapies" and promised to...

    Police in the US state of Georgia have shot and killed an LGBT student activist, leading to an independent investigation. Police encountered Scout Schultz at a campus in Atlanta after a call about "a person with a knife and a gun" late on Saturday, officials say. Footage has emerged apparently showing Schultz, 21, refusing to obey multiple police commands to drop a knife. Schultz's mother said police should not have used lethal force. In a video filmed by fellow students at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Schultz is heard saying "Shoot me!" while continuing to advance on the officers. One...
