Yalonda and Kayla Solseng are true princesses in love.

They captured their love, Disney-style, in a princess-themed engagement shoot in Glyndon, Minnesota, showing their love for the TV show "Once Upon A Time."




They started dating two-and-half years ago, and happily got hitched on September 3rd.They hope their story inspires other couples to create their own fairy tales, no matter the sexual preference.

"Gay marriage has been legalized in the U.S. for over a year and we hardly have gay or lesbian characters in children's movies ― let alone them being main characters," Yalonda said. "Kids want to be the characters they grow up with but when none of the characters represent you, then you feel alone. I want our photos to be shown to kids and families as a way of saying it's okay to be who you are. It's okay to be with the person you love."

An anonymous hacker, known only on Twitter as @WauchulaGhost, and a few of their friends hijacked several Twitter accounts that were known to be associated or in support of ISIS.  This has been going on for a few months, @WauchulaGhost is apparently affiliated with the "hacktivist" group Anonymous. After the attack in Orlando, they and some others have stared adding rainbows, messages saying "Out and Proud" and even some links to gay porn to these compromised accounts. According to Newsweek, the hacker claims to have taken over at least 200 accounts and plans to continue this campaign.

Marvel fans are using the hashtag #GiveCaptainAmericaABoyfriend.   Some people are against it for "cannonical" reasons but really, there are just so many boyfriend options to choose from:

Will this love story happen in the next films, maybe not. As to why this is trending, it seems like it has a lot to do with a lackluster love story in the most recent Captain America:Civil War. (WARNING: Mild spolier ahead?)

Frozen came out in 2013 and kids everywhere are still singing "Let It Go" nonstop.  By now it's due for a sequel. Elsa finally came out of her shell by the end of the first movie, it makes sense for the next one to focus on her finding a prince. Now fans are saying, why not a princess? Using the hashtag #GiveElsaAGirlfriend, Disney fans are campaigning for a diverse representation of love with their favorite ice queen.

But will that change by popular demand?

Pastor Jordan D Brown claimed to have gotten this awful cake from Whole Foods. He shared a picture of the cake with the statement:

That’s not the cake I ordered, @WholeFoodsand I am offended for myself & the entire community

He also got a lawyer, and filmed this "unboxing" video as proof that the cake had not been tampered with. 




Whole Foods, a notably progressive grocery store chain, has countered with a thorough investigation. They are now suing the pastor in regard to his claim, which they believe to be false. According to Uproxx, Whole Foods issued this statement:

After a deeper investigation of Mr. Brown’s claim, we believe his accusations are fraudulent and we intend to take legal action against both Mr. Brown and his attorney.

We stand behind our bakery team member, who is part of the LGBTQ community, and we appreciate the team members and shoppers who recognize that this claim is completely false and directly contradicts Whole Foods Market’s inclusive culture, which celebrates diversity.

Whole Foods also released a video showing Brown and the cashier while the cake was being purchased where neither one seemed to notice the odd wording on the cake.

North Carolina has become infamous for passing a bill in March that blocks measures to protect members of the LGBTQ community from discrimination. This has caused many famous musicians, like Bruce Springsteen, to cancel their concerts. Paypal has even canceled an expansion of the company that was supposed to open in North Carolina. Now, people in the state of North Carolina can't even look at porn. 

That's right, a popular website for sexy media called XHamster has blocked all computers from North Carolina. Instead of seeing... whatever it is they were searching for, they'll see a blank screen. Eventually, they plan to replace that blank screen with a petition to repeal the law.

Evan Young of Longmont, Colorado was banned from making his valedictorian speech at his own graduation from Twin Peaks Charter Academy High School. He submitted a draft of the speech to administrators and then provided them a revised speech where he made all the changes they asked for but one. He had planned to come out as gay during the speech but the school would not permit him to include any references to his sexual orientation. The principal then called Young's parents about the issue, outing him without his consent in the process.

Ultimately, Young was not allowed to speak at his graduation. He did get the chance to deliver his speech after all at a fundraising event for Out Boulder, a Colorado LGBT advocacy group and on national television on The Nightly Show.

Caitlyn Jenner introduced herself to the world on Monday by appearing on the cover of “Vanity Fair,” breaking the internet and winning practically everyone over with her new look.

And on Tuesday Mike Huckabee also started making waves online… for being a total creep.

At the National Religious Broadcasters Convention back in February, the former Arkansas governor was discussing the issue of gender identity, when he made an offensive joke that mocked people who are transgender.

“Now I wish that someone told me that when I was in high school that I could have felt like a woman when it came time to take showers in PE,” he said. “I’m pretty sure that I would have found my feminine side and said, ‘Coach, I think I’d rather shower with the girls today.'”

World Net Daily uploaded the video to YouTube this past weekend, so it just started to get national attention this week.

Any sliver of a chance he had a becoming president just went down the drain with that punchline.

Meanwhile on Twitter, the Huckabee jokes are top notch.
