Meet Mister Terrific, TV's First Black Gay Superhero

Some longtime DC Comics fans were in for a treat this week after it was announced that the television series Arrow had cast actor Echo Kellum to play an openly gay version of Michael Holt, also known as Mister Terrific, a black superhero. Introduced in 1997, Mister Terrific is a genius millionaire with 14 doctorate degrees and a gold medal in the Olympic decathlon.

Mister Terrific joins openly bisexual Sara Lance (Canary, played by Caity Lotz) as the show's queer characters, part of a deliberate effort by its creators to introduce LGBT characters into the world of TV superheroes. Series co-creator Greg Berlanti, who is also openly gay, said as much earlier this year to the Advocate. "The network has been very welcoming and they realize the younger generation doesn't really have issues with that kind of stuff," he says. "They don't really see [being LGBT] as a negative. There's a lot more understanding, openness and compassion around this issue today and that's a great thing."

Do you think TV audiences will be accepting of this level of diversity in comics?

When does a man become a Daddy?

Intergenerational relationships are extremely common in the gay community, the social stigmas and stereotypes having almost been entirely relegated to the past. But when does a man become a Daddy? Is there a certain age... a certain look... or maybe a certain maturity level? Or is being a Daddy a state of mind? What do you think?

"The Walking Dead" introduces gay couple with a big kiss

Last night on AMC's "The Walking Dead" we were introduced to a new couple, Aaron and Eric, who passionately embraced and kissed after being reunited following a brutal zombie rumble.

"What’s also interesting about the kiss — and the real irony here — is that no one within the camp seemed in the least bit bothered by it. In fact, it endeared them to Aaron and Eric. Think about this: Rick is a Southern cop. There’s like three rednecks on the show, a couple of mullets between them, and there’s a preacher. And they don’t give a rat’s ass that two men are kissing. Is that what it’s going to take for all of America to finally accept men kissing? A zombie apocalypse? At this point, even Merle — were he alive — might have had his heart melted by that kiss. “Awwww, isn’t that sweet. Howsa bout a hug for your old pal, Merle, fellas?”

First gay publication credentialed for Super Bowl

Outsports became the first LGBT publication to ever be credentialed by the NFL for the Super Bowl. Gay sportswriter Cyd Zeigler talks how fitting it was that a team from the first state to have same-sex marriage would win the Super Bowl the first time a gay publication was credentialed by the NFL with full access to the players, coaches and the game.

Congratulations Cyd! It's about time NFL. Is anybody surprised it took them this long?
