Moscow-Born Pop Star Defies New Russian Law, Celebrates LGBT Community With New Video
As the Sochi Olympics approach the halfway mark, and against the contentious backdrop of Russia's so-called "gay propaganda law", Russian-born pop star Grace Valerie has released a brand-new video that she hopes will contribute a message of love and understanding to the raging debate on the role of LGBT people in her native country.
"Diversity is what makes us strong," Grace Valerie says. "That's what I've learned here in America."
“Helen Keller”, the latest dance floor anthem from indie hip hopper Cazwell, was intended to be a trendy moombahton track (the genre that fuses electro with reggaeton and a bit of house).

Gay Vet Publishes First African-American Iraq War Memoir
After surviving the notoriously brutal Infantry Basic Training as a chubby, fresh-off-the bus, 17-year-old, Rob Smith found that he was equally tortured by his homosexuality, privately battling isolation, paranoia and suicide, while remaining closeted to all but a few of his colleagues.
In “Closets, Combat and Coming Out,” the first gay Iraq war memoir published post-DADT repeal – and the first Iraq war memoir written by an African-American, period – the author and activist comes to terms with his sexuality against the backdrop of the hyper-masculine and hyper-homophobic U.S. Army.
