Billy Eichner Wants to Glam Up the Midterm Elections!

More times than we’d like to admit, we OD on media and are consumed by reality television, award shows, sporting events, etcetera etcetera. Maybe it’s because the news can be a downer. We are so tired of seeing how society has crumbled and we have to witness mass shootings, homelessness rise, and worse, the guy in the White House talk out of his SH*THOLE consistently. But one thing that we shouldn’t forget is that it is our civic duty to exercise our right to vote. Look what happened the last time?

So—to make voting enticing enough for everyone to mail those ballots in or go to their polling place this November 6th, Billy Eichner has created a campaign Glam Up the Midterms, to show that the Midterm Elections are the biggest event of the year—move over Oscars and Super Bowl!

Join by Andy Cohen, Sarah Silverman, Jimmy Kimmel, Chelsea Handler, Seth Meyers, Conan O’Brien, John Oliver, Robin Thede, James Corden, and more, Eichner is targeting the large percentage of millenials who didn’t vote in the last midterms in hope that they will make a change in congress. The areas that they are focusing on are the states that have close races such as Texas-23, Pennsylvania-7, and Virginia-10.

You Betta Vote—this November!

James Corden Responds To Trans Military Ban With A Song

In response to Trump’s ban on transgender individuals serving in the military, The Late Late Show host James Corden took some time during the show to step on his musical soapbox and be another voice for the trans individuals and the greater LGBT community.

Using the acronym L.G.B.T. he sampled Nat King Cole’s L.O.V.E. and used resonating lyrics to show that he is a great ally and supporter of trans military individuals and LGBT people.

The song starts like this:

‘L,’ he doesn’t care for lesbians

‘G,’ he thinks two men should just be friends

‘B,’ to his dumb knowledge is just a phase in college

‘T,’ he finds confusing so the army’s now refusing trans women who only want to serve, trans men who want rights we all deserve

POTUS thinks it’s unsavory

Patriots who know real bravery

Trump’s got hate for me and you.

Check out the whole performance here:

Corden began to gain attention with this Carpool Karaoke where he has featured many gay icons. His musical background has given him a platform unlike any other for late night talk show hosts and here is proof that he’s on our side and is willing to do anything to protect the rights of others.
