ABC News’ Gio Benitez happily married; awful Grindr replies; gay stereotypes galore

When you least expect it, the ghost of Queen’s Freddie Mercury can possess you — or even 65,000 people at a time. While waiting for Green Day to start a concert at Hyde Park, the huge crowd abruptly broke into “Bohemian Rhapsody” without being prompted… and the whole thing’s caught on tape. It’s a kind of magic:


Are you a gay stereotype? That’s the latest burning question posed by LA-based writer and performer Michael Henry. Other questions presented: “Why aren’t I clickbait?” “How do I feel beautiful and femme, when femme guys aren’t in underwear ads?” Maybe it’s a little dark.


In the psychosexual thriller B&B, gay Londoners Marc and Fred plan for a weekend of mischief by pranking the Christian owner of a remote bed and breakfast. Maybe that wasn’t their best-ever idea. When another guest arrives, things take a way deadly turn and the stakes get terrifying — but the film continues to be titled B&B, anyway.

You’d think with as many significant medical breakthroughs we’ve made to curb HIV infection and to make HIV-AIDS a treatable chronicle disease, the long-held stigma wouldn’t still be plaguing the community. Not so. The depressing video below features real-life convos on Grindr, in which users deride openly POZ people with such comments as: “You should be ashamed, you’re a walking disease.”

Remember ABC News’ Gio Benitez and his engagement to beau Tommy DiDario in front of the Eiffel Tower? As NewNowNext reports, their relationship is still going strong — and we have the exotic travel pics to prove it.

Greetings from #PuertoRico! Thanks to our buddy @MrTurk for the super fun swimwear! ?
