Former Disney ‘Teen Beach Movie’ star Garrett Clayton comes out as gay in Instagram post

Former Disney star Garrett Clayton came out in an emotional Instagram post. Clayton even revealed he’s been in a long term relationship with LA writer Blake Knight:

“With the release of my new movie REACH coming up, I thought it was important to explain why I took on this project in the first place. REACH deals with some very serious and timely topics that have affected me personally, and have likely influenced many of your lives as well. (I also prefer to share things that are particularly important for me here on my IG) instead of in some random magazine or online article - because you are the ones that have been rooting for me and following me on my professional and personal journey in life.

When I read the script for REACH, I immediately knew it was a film I had to be a part of. I have personally dealt with suicide within my own family, intense bullying in high school, and - on top of it all - myself and the man I’ve been in a relationship with for a long time (@hrhblakeknight) have both experienced shootings within our hometown school systems, and have witnessed the heartache that takes place in affected communities after such tragic events. These topics - not always easy to discuss- are all close to my heart, and, knowing how serious they are, I wanted to share this with you all. This film has come from the perspectives of people who care deeply about these issues, and if watching it helps even one person... then it was all worth it.“

Clayton is best known for portraying Tanner in the 2013 Disney Channel Original Movie Teen Beach Movie and its 2015 sequel, Teen Beach 2. He also starred alongside James Franco in King Cobra.

Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black on criticism about them choosing surrogacy over adoption

“I was very surprised by the reaction because so many people I know have done it. In the US it was all positive, but I think that’s because it’s a different system. Laws are in place there, protections are in place, there is a better understanding, I think law can help lead to understanding.”

Daley adds: “Right now it’s like the Wild West in the UK. In the States, there is a legal framework, you are not allowed to do it if you need the money. The surrogate is better protected as well as the intended parents. It’s just safer for everyone.”

The couple also shared their frustration on the criticism on them choosing to use a surrogate as opposed to adopting.

“Lots of people say, ‘Why don’t you adopt?’ You wouldn’t say that to a straight couple. You wouldn’t say: ‘Why do you deserve to have a biological kid?’”

Daley also mentions that they keep in touch with the biological mother and she will remain part of their son’s life. The couple welcomed their son, Robert Ray, earlier this Summer on June 30th 2018. Neither want to know who is the biological father as they both say Robert is “ours.”

We love the brilliance of technology to invent this. What would you want David to say?


Madonna Slammed For Tone Deaf Aretha Franklin Tribute at the VMAs

* Madonna has been slammed for her tone deaf tribute to the belated Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin.
* Madge mostly talked about how hard she had it when breaking into the industry, instead of talking about Aretha.
* Madge also wore traditional dress from Malawi, giving the impression that she just came back from her own birthday festivities in the country. This also prompted calls of cultural appropriation.
* Madonna also did something very similar when Prince died.
