We've been pretty vocal fans of Days Of Our Lives' treatment of Will Horton's coming out storyline. (And we still maintain that daytime television, with its daily episodic format, offers a unique opportunity to delve into the intricacies of this type of subject matter, so stop cancelling our soaps!)
We were totally thrilled to see Will's portrayer, Chandler Massey, walk away with the Emmy for Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series for his work!
This is the first time an actor has won a Daytime Emmy for playing a gay character. Watch his Emmy win after the jump!FULL STORY

One of the most widely used images each and every Pride month is that majestic view of an oversized gay pride flag waving atop the Seattle Space Needle. At least we'll always have the pictures, because, once again, folks at the city's best-known landmark have decided not to re-raise the rainbow stripes over Seattle.

Zach Wahls, the Iowa college student that became interweb famous after eloquently speaking out in support of his two moms, has shot down a controversial, newly released study that alleges that children raised by gay parents will be negatively affected in the long-run.
The study, which shockingly (read: not shockingly) has funding ties with the Family Research Council (an anti-gay hate group) confuses causation with causality. Wahls and Slate's Will Saletan argue that the data found by the study actually points to the idea that children raised in a stable two parent/same-sex partner home have no noted negative outcome.
