Elon Musk said on Tuesday that Twitter could start charging a “slight cost” for government and commercial users in comments that come just over a week since he reached a deal to buy the social media platform. “Ultimately, the downfall of the Freemasons was giving away their stonecutting services for nothing,” Musk tweeted initially. “Twitter will always be free for casual users, but maybe a slight cost for commercial/government users,” he added a few hours later. It is not exactly clear what Musk means by “casual users” or how Twitter would characterize that usage.
Freemasons? Really? He brought up Freemasons?
Freemasons did not give away their labor. They were called freemasons because they were free tradesmen, and not indentured.
Maybe Musk was being drole. Whatever he didn’t succeed.
For the last six years, players have immersed themselves in the game’s diverse stories and its batch of 30 survivors . However, for the first time in the game’s history, developers have added its first LGBTQ+ character. On 27 April, Behavior Interactive announced that fan-favorite character David King would become the games first gay character.
The character David King described as a “hot-tempered ruffian”, was first introduced in the game’s fifth chapter, A Lullaby for the Dark: The single child of a wealthy family, David King seemed destined for greatness. While growing up in Manchester, he demonstrated serious potential in both sports and academics, and with his family connections, all doors were open to him. He could have succeeded at anything, if it weren’t for his combative nature. David lived for the adrenaline rush of a good fight and would go out of his way to get into one.
Death by Daylight’s creative director Dave Richard gave further insight into their decision to update the character’s backstory: “It was a long effort to get here today because we wanted – like any type of representation that we do in DbD – we wanted to make sure that we do it right, that it’s not token, and that players will feel represented by this character. David King is a loved character, a youthful character, he is loved by a lot of players, the LGBTQ community already considers this character in their fan love story as being gay as well. So it was a great fit to tell an amazing story,”
Behavior Interactive consulted closely with the organization GaymerX in order to select the right existing character.
Also in her book,“Vincent Price: A Daughter’s Biography ‘ Victoria Price explored the many facets and secrets of her famous father.
“He married a bisexual woman [Browne] and everybody assumed their marriage was a fraud,” offered Price. “It wasn’t a fraud. It was a totally sexual relationship but they were two people with very open minded approaches as to what life should look like. And that to me – people who lived this truth in all aspects of their lives – they should be heroes to every community.”
“Everybody asks me was your dad bisexual?” said Price. But not in the strictest sense of the word according to his daughter. “It was Roddy McDowall who said to me, you know, we didn’t have any idea what bisexuality meant in that sense, and if we didn’t know, then how can we know the answer to that question.”
“But I would like to say something here because I might as well,” she continued. “I am as close to certain as I can be that my dad had physically intimate relationships with men. I know for 100 percent fact that my dad was completely loving and supportive of LGBT people.”
Price recalls her father’s 1977 one-man-show where he played the openly gay Oscar Wilde to great acclaim and rebuffed the anti gay Anita Bryant efforts of the day. In television interviews, Vincent Price said Wilde had already written a play about Ms. Bryant: A Woman of No Importance.
Kevin Biegel, the former showrunner/writer for the Marvel live-action series New Warriors has made public statements accusing Marvel Studios of cancelling the show before it premiered for being “too gay.”
Best known for creating the series Cougar Town Biegel,, took to Twitter last Wednesday night to complain alleging that a homophobic executive took aim at the series for being “very very proudly gay.” before thinking twice and deleting his tweets.
A SINGULAR power that be killed that show, Because it was too gay. A rich, straight, Brentwood turd. He got fired for being vile at his company. We, on the other hand, live.
Biegel didn’t reveal thee exact identity killed the series but given the use of ‘he’ pronounces and the fact that the executive was fired from the company could illuminate who it was that killed the series. While this is purely speculation, one suspect could be Joseph Loeb, the former Executive Vice President of Marvel Television. Loeb stepped down from the company when Kevin Feige was appointed Chief Creative Officer of Marvel Entertainment but many saw the decision as him being let go from the company.
This is only the latest in a long line of counter-productive moves from Marvel Studio’s who have in the past been accused of “gay baiting” by the mega hit giant for announcing lesbian, gay, and bisexual characters that never play out their sexuality or have it even mentioned on-screen.
It has been confirmed that the new HBO Max reboot series of the Green Lantern will feature the first Green Lantern character, Alan Scott – and, like in the Earth-2 comics, the character will be openly gay.
Alan Scott became the first Green Lantern superhero when he was created in 1940 by Martin Nodell. He was later reinvented as Hal Jordan in 1959.
From HBO Max, DC, Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television comes a bold adaptation of the iconic comic book franchise, a saga spanning decades and galaxies. GREEN LANTERN will depict the adventures of a multitude of Lanterns, including Guy Gardner, Jessica Cruz, Simon Baz and Alan Scott — Earth’s first Green Lantern, who, true to the comics, is a gay man.
The series will also include fan favorites such as Sinestro and Kilowog, and will also introduce new heroes to the ranks of the Green Lantern Corps.
HBO Max has ordered 10 one-hour episodes. The series will be co-written and executive produced by Seth Grahame-Smith and Marc Guggenheim, with Grahame-Smith serving as showrunner.
Casting for the new live action show has not yet begun.

Anti-LGBT Rio de Janeiro mayor Marcelo Crivella has announced that the translated edition of the Marvel comic book series Avengers: The Children’s Crusade would be removed from the literary festival Riocentro Bienal do Livro so as to protect the city’s children from what he described as “sexual content for minors.”
The so-called “sexual content”? A one-panel kiss between two male characters, Wiccan and Hulkling, who are in committed relationship. Both characters are clothed in the scene.
Crivella made the announcement on Twitter, in a video where he says, “Books like this need to be wrapped in black sealed plastic with a content warning displayed on the outside.” In ordering the removal of the title, he claims that the city’s authorities are “protecting the minors of our city.” In the text of the tweet itself, he describes the contents of the comic as “content that is unsuitable for minors.”
Crivella’s tweet followed an Instagram post from Rio de Janeiro councilman Alexandre Isquierdo, decrying the book and complaining that it was “spread[ing] homosexuality to CHILDREN!” (Emphasis his.) The sale of the book, he complained, was “an absurd crime.”
Officials at the Riocentro Bienal do Livro festival have refused to comply with the Crivella ‘order. Turns out the majority of outlets didn’t have the comic in stock in the first place, and the one that did reporting that copies had already sold out two days earlier.
