The Understanding Same-Gender Attraction (USGA), group at Brigham Young University describes itself as a group that provides “a place for open, respectful discussions on the topic of same-gender attraction.”
Today the group released a heartbreaking “It Get’s Better” video made by the lesbian and gay students from the Mormon and very anti-gay BYU.
But whats heartbreaking about it is not the “message of hope” that bearly shines through in this video as in most “It Get’s Better” videos. But the pain and suffering that comes through and that you can hear in these college kids voices and they try to send a message of hope to others while they also try to convince themseleves that theres a place for themselves in a “religion” and at a school which blatantly hates them.
* Tom Cruise recently flagged Zac Efron down in the lobby of CAA. and used a creepy troll like pick-up line. “You ride motorcycles?” Cruise asked? (Why didn’t he just ask if he liked Gladiator movies?) Cruise then invited him out to his house, taught him how a motorcycle engine works, showed him the hangar with his dozens of pristine bikes—including the Triumphs he rode in the Mission: Impossible movies.

* Torchwood’s creator Russell T Davies sat down and discussed some details for the fourth season of Torchwood that will be titled “Torchwood: The New World”. The events of Torchwood: TNW take place two years after the grim conclusion of of Children of Earth including the death of Captain Jack’s lover Ianto Jones. Joining Captain Jack and Gwen Cooper (Eve Myles) in TNW will be an American CIA agent named Rex Matheson (the part is not yet cast). Davies says that Matheson is an “entrance into the new story,” a way for new viewers to learn about Torchwood along with the character. Davies explains that given the fact that Torchwood was destroyed and the team broken up after CoE, Matheson will have no idea what Torchwood is since “It’s like something that ceased to exist a long time ago that’s spoken of only in whispers. It’s like a legend now.” Read more….
