The 47-year-old Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal creator said that she’s worried that after this year’s historic big wins will make the TV industry think that they’ve made enough progress. “It’s embarrassing, frankly,” Shonda told Vanity Fair. “To me, it feels embarrassing that we are still in a place in which we still have to note these moments.” “I’m hoping that it’s not a trend. I’m hoping that people don’t feel satisfied because they saw a lot of people win, and then think that we’re done.” Donald Glover became the first African American to win an Emmy for Comedy Directing while Lena Waithe became the first African American women to win a Comedy Writing award for Master of None. “I’m hoping that it’s not a trend,” Shonda said. “I’m hoping that people don’t feel satisfied because they saw a lot of people win, and then think that we’re done.”.....»»

What Is Winning an Emmy Worth?

The rough cost of a top-tier Emmy campaign — the kind mounted this year for Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” NBC’s “This Is Us,” and HBO’s “Big Little Lies” — is $1 million. But the value of winning an Emmy is harder to quantify. The payoff comes via intangibles, such as seeing one’s brand burnished on... Read more ».....»»

Brazil Judge Re-Legalizes Gay Conversion Therapy After 18 Years! See The LGBT Community Fight With Worldwide Love On Twitter!

Dammit, we are not a disorder that needs to be cured! Federal judge Waldemar de Carvalho enraged the nation of Brazil with his ruling overturning the 1999 Federal Council of Psychology's ban on gay conversion therapy.

Federal judge Waldemar de Carvalho enraged the nation of Brazil with his ruling overturning the 1999 Federal Council of Psychology's ban on gay conversion therapy. For 18 years, psychologists were forbidden from offering treatments meant to "cure" homosexuality. You know, because it's disgusting nonsense -- not to mention mostly torture. Related: Katy Perry Admits She 'Did More Than' Kiss A Girl While Opening Up About Her Religious Upbringing Openly gay councillor David Miranda was appalled by Carvalho's decision, which comes at the behest of a push by right wing evangelical Christians against the acceptance and inclusion of gays in the public and pop culture. He told the Guardian: "This decision is a big regression to the progressive conquests that the LBGT community had in recent decades. Like various countries in the world, Brazil is suffering a conservative wave." Sadly, with a president who wants to ban transgender military personnel but can't condemn Nazis, we can relate all too well right now. The initial court case was brought by Christian psychologist Rozangela Justino, whose license was revoked after she broke the ban on conversion therapy. Carvalho ruled in Justino's favor. The Federal Council of Psychology promised in a public statement to fight the decision. President Rogerio Giannini said: "There is no way to cure what is not a disease. It is not a serious, academic debate, it is a debate connected to religious or conservative positions." He also explained the judge twisted the language to make it the ban seem legally unjustified: "We have no power over research. The way it was put by the judge gave the impression that we prohibited research which is not true." The international LGBT community was also horrified by the decision. The hashtags #curagay ("gay cure") and #HomofobiaÉdoença ("homophobia is a disease") have been trending all day.

Sean made a guest appearance at the Emmys and surprised the audience with his cameo. “The big winners last night were Donald Glover, Hulu and former White House press secretary Sean Spicer. Spicer won best actor in a comedy for his role in Donald Trump’s administration. ’m kidding, of course. But Sean Spicer actually did make a cameo at last night’s ceremony. According to some reports, at the after-party, Spicer was the post popular guy in the room,” James said. “And I just want to say, I think people are forgetting that this man lied to the American people, and should not be embraced. These Hollywood phonies kissing up to Sean Spicer are disgusting. I mean, who did this? Who are we talking about here?!” Then the photo of James kissing Sean‘s cheek popped up. “I know you think that is a picture of me kissing Sean Spicer.

I just happened to kiss the biggest one there.” James then took a serious tone and added, “some people have been disappointed by this photo…in truth, I’m disappointed by it as well.
