Et tu, Wendy? 9 allies who betrayed their LGBTQ followers

Self-proclaimed LGBTQ ally Wendy Williams is in the middle of a PR nightmare. It all started last week when she launched into what can only be described as an antigay tirade on her show. In a pre-Valentine’s Day rant, Williams went after gay men, demanding they “stop wearing our skirts and our heels.” “Looky here now, gay men, you’ll never be the women that we are,” Williams said. “No matter how gay.” AdBridg.cmd.push(function() { AdBridg.display("div-gpt-ad-inarticle1"); }); Related: Wendy ...

Instead of apologizing to the gays, Wendy Williams needs to fix herself

What a girl wants depends on the girl, and what Wendy Williams really really wants is as obvious as the Trump administration’s anti-LGBTQ agenda: She wants traditional gender roles. She wants to wear men’s shirts, short skirts, to color her hair, do what she dares. She wants a man who makes her feel like a woman. But then, who needs men at all on Galentine’s Day? During the February 13 episode of her eponymous daytime talk show, Wendy explained the Parks and Recreations twist on Valentine’s Day...

WATCH: Wendy Williams fights back tears apologizing to LGBTQ viewers

Wendy Williams did not mean to offend her LGBTQ+ community. We know this because she posted a video in which she states: “I did not mean to offend my LGBTQ+ community on yesterday’s show.” On the Thursday show, Williams spoke to her audience about ‘Galentine’s Day’, the Valentine’s alternative from Parks & Recreation where a group of women celebrates one another’s friendship instead of romantic pairings. She went a bit off-topic when male audience members applauded. AdBridg.cmd.push(function()...

Wendy Williams pisses off gay fans with latest hot take

Gender-fluid fashion has become a staple on red carpets thanks to daring looks from the likes of Billy Porter and Jonathan Van Ness, but Wendy Williams apparently wants it to stop. The talk show host has come under fire (once again) for one of her patented hot takes, this time opposing the trend of men exploring traditionally female styles. Speaking to her audience about ‘Galentine’s Day’, the Valentine’s alternative from Parks & Recreation where a group of women celebrates one another’s friend...

Serena Williams Says Working Moms Are Superheroes: ‘Women Need to Be Recognized’

Serena Williams has made a name for herself in countless arenas; one only needs to look as far as her record-breaking 23 Grand Slam titles, her forays into fashion and venture capitalism, and her vocal activism. However, balancing these multiple roles has helped Williams realize the importance of one of her most personal roles in life: being a mother. During the New York Fashion Week showing of her jet set-inspired collection for her clothing line S by Serena on Tuesday morning, Williams sa...

WATCH: Politician called to resign over bizarre antigay rant

In the annals of debunked homophobic talking points, there’s really nothing more prolific or versatile than “Think of the children!” Its latest incarnation comes courtesy of a local British politician whose rant about children being shown gay “pornography” in school has earned him several calls to resign. Glenn Williams is a Coventry city councilor who argued that children should be taught “traditional family values” and “not how to be promiscuous”, aka gay. AdBridg.cmd.push(function() { AdBri...

Society often associates femininity with long, flowing locks – but a growing number of women are choosing to celebrate their baldnessBarbara Williams didn’t get married just to change her name – of course not.

Former USPS worker says he was called “fruitcake” and “sick f*ggot” before being fired

A former letter carrier from Lehigh County, Pennsylvania has just filed a discrimination lawsuit against the United States Postal Service after he says he was harassed incessantly and eventually fired for being gay. The man’s name has been redacted from the federal lawsuit to mitigate any risks of stigma or retribution. He is being referred to as simply John Doe.

I've Been Shamed For Wearing Eyeliner at the Gym - Here's Why I Don't Listen

Tennis pro Venus Williams has swept the stuff across her lids before walking onto the court. Fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad made headlines for "winging" it at the 2016 Summer Olympics. I'm not a pro-athlete - far from one - but there's one thing that I have in common with them: I use eyeliner to power my workouts. In short, it makes me feel good. Eyeliner makes me feel sexy and, whenever I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror between reps, I feel like I can take on whatever comes my way. It has alwa...

Why Hayley Williams Is Starting A "Sanctuary Of Self Love" At Bonnaroo

Bonnaroo is a festival known as much for its outdoor camping on a functioning Tennesse farm (and the hippie vibe that comes with it) as for its performances (this year they include Solange, Kacey Musgraves, Cardi B, and Brandi Carlisle). And now, they're adding something new to the mix: a Sanctuary of Self Love, curated by Hayley Williams of Paramore. And as the name suggests, it's all about self-care."It's hard to be in a crowd of people, a swarm, whether you're excited about seeing a band or ...

The Meaning Behind Maisie Williams' Growing Tattoo Collection

For the last decade, Maisie Williams has been known as Arya Stark, the highborn scamp with lightning-fast reflexes and an aversion to dainty needlework on Game of Thrones. Although her character has officially been dubbed the MVP of the show, IRL, Williams is far from the dagger-swinging assassin she portrays on TV.Instead of Gendry and kill lists, the actress has a passion for pink hair and tattoos — and while she's revealed that she ditched her brunette roots after wrapping GoT as a way of re...

You Won't Believe How Much Maisie Williams Has Changed

Part of devoting nearly eight years of Sunday nights to an epic show like Game of Thrones means watching not just your favorite characters, but the young actors behind them grow up right before your eyes. Over the past 69 episodes, Maisie Williams — as Arya Stark — has gone from a precocious aspiring knight to a girl with no name who's put her dancing lessons with Syrio Forel to good use on more than one occasion.

What Your Favorite Game Of Thrones Cast Members Look Like In Real Life

Remember the scene in Mean Girls where Janis Ian sees Ms. Norbury in the mall, and says that encountering a teacher outside of school is more unnerving than seeing a dog walk on its hind legs? That’s kind of how we feel when we see a Game of Thrones cast member in the real world. No actor is ever really their character, of course — but after almost 10 years with the ensemble cast who create the fantasy world of Westeros, it’s difficult to separate fiction from reality.Unfortunately, we really d...

Mismatched Eyeshadow Is Here To Challenge The Status Quo

When it comes to makeup, we're taught that it's always best to be symmetrical. Your eyebrows should match, your blush should, too, and don't even get us started on cat-eye liner. Symmetry is key — or is it?Instead of copying the same look on both eyes, makeup artists and influencers have recently decided to stick it to the beauty rules — opting for mismatched eyeshadow and liner in a bevy of bold, contrasting shades.

The Game Of Thrones Cast Has Aged Like Fine, Lannister Wine

It’s hard to believe that Game of Thrones premiered almost a decade ago. Yes, it was way back in 2011 that Eddard “Ned” Stark lost his head in King’s Landing, and we found out that Cersei Lannister was having sex with her twin brother. For the last seven seasons, fans have been entranced by the fight for the Iron Throne, but the show's eighth and final season is going to be about so much more than that (the Night King cometh).While we're sad to see GoT come to an end, eight years is a long time...

Maisie Williams's colorful hair strikes again. This time, she couldn't be more on-trend wearing purple to the Game of Thrones season eight premiere in New York City on Wednesday. For a hot second, we thought she might have gotten rid of her colorful hair after posting a video of herself wearing a blunt bob wig for a photo shoot, but it appears that hiding underneath all along was her vibrant hair, and after seeing this color, we can see why.
