Target 10 Releases 'Home For The Holigays' Infographic Detailing ...

Tom Daley Reveals Relationship With Another Man

British Olympic diver Tom Daley surprised fans in early December when he revealed he’s in a relationship with another man in an emotional YouTube video. Although he stopped short of using the terms “gay” or “bisexual,” the 19-year-old Daley said, “Come spring this year, my life changed massively when I met someone and it made me feel so happy, so safe and everything just feels great. And that someone is a guy.” He then added, “It was always in the back of my head that something like that could happen, but it wasn’t until spring this year that something just clicked … My whole world just changed, right there and then.”


Kids React To Gay Marriage

An incredible video which made the Internet rounds in November asked a group of children, ages 5-13, their opinions about same-sex marriage. The video starts with the kids watching two different viral videos of gay marriage proposals, and then a brief Q&A about their opinions surrounding marriage equality ensues.



“It’s like…umm…this thing…yeah…” That’s pretty much how this hilarious video goes when a group of gay guys are asked about their thoughts on the ever-so-foreign female reproductive organ.


Gay Flash Mob Proposal In NYC's Central Park

In a video posted to YouTube and Facebook in May, New Yorker Carl Marucci proposed to his boyfriend, Drew Marsenison, in Central Park with the help of a flash mob to Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years.” Marucci wrote on YouTube that on May 11, he asked his mom to take Marsenison to Bethesda Fountain in Central Park. After they arrived, the flash mob broke out. Marucci joined Marsenison during the performance to watch; then, the dancers surrounded the couple and Marucci popped the question.


Diana Medley Meets Billy Madison

An interview with an anti-gay, special education teacher in Indiana prompted what just might be the best Billy Madison mash-up ever in February. Playing off the 1995 classic’s “everyone is now dumber” moment, the viral video — posted on social news site Reddit — features teacher Diana Medley stating her opinion on gay children before being mercilessly torn apart Mr. Oblaski, the principal in “Billy Madison.”


Steve Grand's

Grand, an Illinois native, shot to viral fame as America’s “first gay male country star” in July with his first video, “All-American Boy.” The sexy clip, which was shot for a bargain-basement $7,000, portrays a young gay man who misreads signals from an apparently straight male pal.


An Amazing Gay Wedding Proposal

Danny Rose set a new precedent for gay grooms-to-be with his amazing proposal video. Titled “What Are We Waiting For,” the video features a dance-pop soundtrack and “Glee”-style choreography, along with a number of slick costume changes to boot.


“I started writing the song in December and took me a month to complete,” said Rose. “Then I prepped the music video for a few weeks and shot it all in one day…After the video I got down on one knee and asked him to make me the happiest person in the world and spend his life with me! He said of course and it was a great moment. But wanted to watch the video again 30 more times. There are a lot of inside jokes and even some wardrobe choices in there designed to experiences in our history.”


Jewish Teen Offers Pro-Gay Bar Mitzvah Plea

An Oregon teen struck blogosphere gold after video footage of his incredible Bar Mitzvah speech in support of same-sex marriage surfaced. In the clip, Duncan McAlpine Sennett, who reportedly became a Bar Mitzvah at Portland’s Congregation Beth Israel, offers his d’var Torah analysis of the Bible chapter in Genesis covering Jacob’s marriage to Leah and Rachel, two sisters who also happened to be his first cousins, observing that “the definition of traditional marriage is nothing like what people think it is today.” He then adds, “I am a very, very strong supporter of equal rights and the freedom of men and women to marry whomever they love.”



In what will be sure to go down as one of the most elaborate marriage proposals ever, a gay Canadian actor popped the question to his boyfriend in a very theatrical way. Patrick Stiles, who recently starred in Royal City Musical Productions’ staging of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” organized a grand flashmob with his castmates to the tune of Mika’s “Love Today.” As his partner Mike Kennedy beamed, Stiles segued into a heartfelt version of Elton John’s “Your Song” before dropping to one knee. Video footage of the proposal hit the Internet in December.


Woman Proposes To Girlfriend At Hockey Game


'Testimony'

Penned by “Wicked” Stephen Schwartz, “Testimony” has become an Internet hit, thanks to a video performance by the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus (SFGMC) which has gone viral.


The song has been dubbed the “It Gets Better” anthem.


Gay Couple Gets Engaged Onstage At Garbage Concert

It was a rock-and-roll fairytale come true for one Detroit gay man when Garbage’s Shirley Manson halted her band’s March 30 performance at the Majestic Theater so that his boyfriend could pop the question. Amateur video footage shows Manson bringing the two men, identified on YouTube as Domenick Viviano and Scott Sauter, onstage.


Margaret Thatcher's

Video footage of Margaret Thatcher delivering an anti-gay speech in 1987 went viral in the wake of the former British prime minister’s death on April 8. In the speech, reportedly given at a Conservative Party Conference on Oct. 9, 1987, Thatcher declares, “Children who need to be taught to respect traditional moral values are being taught that they have an inalienable right to be gay.” She then concludes, “All of those children are being cheated of a sound start in life — yes, cheated.”


Tim Tebow's Man-On-Man Smooch

Although Tebow filmed a Superbowl commercial in 2010 for the anti-gay, anti-abortion organization Focus On The Family (FOTF), he seemed to have no problem sharing a male-on-male lip-lock with Demaryius Thomas in front of thousands (millions?) of onlookers in October.


Eighth Grader's 'Don't Say Gay' PSA

An eighth grader’s hilarious public service announcement on the misuse of the word “gay” made the rounds of the LGBT blogosphere and beyond in November.


Zach Wahls' Pro-Gay Marriage Speech In Iowa

Wahls’ profound pro-gay parenting, pro-marriage equality speech went viral twice this year. The 19-year-old’s moving testimony in front of the Iowa House of Representatives swept Twitter and Facebook in February and in December due to the continuing debates about same-sex marriage and gay parenting in the United States.


Gay Couple Reacts After Being Told They're Going To Be Grandfathers

It’s easy to see why a video of a gay couple being told they’re going to be grandparents went viral again over a year after it was originally uploaded to YouTube.


Bachmann Confronted By 8-Year-Old LGBT Activist

In early December, Michele Bachmann was left speechless after an awkward encounter with a young activist named Elijah at a South Carolina book signing. The video, however, drew plenty of criticism from some unusual sources.


Australia's 'It's Time' Marriage Equality Ad

An Australian same-sex marriage advocacy group’s sexy, dramatic new campaign had the blogosphere abuzz in late fall. Produced by independent advocacy organization GetUp! Action for Australia, the new ad, simply titled “A Love Story,” which depicts two handsome men frolicking on a beach and dealing with family crises before a proposal and the subsequent nuptials.


Gay Engagement At NYC's Frying Pan

Held at the Frying Pan on Manhattan’s West Side, the large-scale flashmob consisted of over 90 dancers from Pace and Marymount colleges. Lance Boyd thought that he and his boyfriend Harry were merely going to a friend’s birthday brunch. Little did he know that Harry had been planning a huge flashmob wedding proposal for months.


Gay Kiss Upstages Al Jazeera Reporter

One gay couple expressed their views on the victory of Spain’s Mariano Rajoy and his conservative People’s Party by “videobombing” an Al Jazeera reporter, kissing passionately as the hapless correspondent spoke on the election.


Jonah Mowry's Brave Confession

A bullied teen’s poignant video caught the eye of the blogosphere over three months after it was originally posted. The clip, simply titled “Whats goin on…” [sic] and uploaded to YouTube in August, features eighth grader Jonah Mowry, who addresses the audience with a series of revealing notecards while Sia’s “Breathe Me” plays in the background.


Michigan Senator Slams 'Matt's Safe School Law'

In a stinging floor speech, Michigan Senator Gretchen Whitmer expressed her dissatisfaction with “Matt’s Safe School Law,” which — at the time — created a special exception for bullies who have “a sincerely held religious belief or moral conviction,” as well as neglecting to protect to bullying against students based on sexual orientation or gender identity.



We’ve heard it all before: Gay marriage will ruin the institution and sanctity of marriage, right? So in an effort to “keep straight couples from getting divorced and hating their children,” check out this hilarious video from “the coalition of people whose lives are ruined whenever other people are treated equally.”


Gay Soldier Comes Out To Father On YouTube

Hours after the U.S. military repealed “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell,” Randy Phillips, a young American soldier stationed in Germany had something to tell his father. “Dad, I’m gay,” the soldier uttered into his cellphone. “Always have been and always known forever,” he adds.


'Gay Is The Word'

Produced by staff and students from the University of Liverpool and based on an original idea from the staff’s LGBT Network, “Gay is the Word” shows a British fellow attempting to come out to his mates as a gay man, yet failing when his friends don’t understand that “gay” also means “homosexual.”


New Jersey Teen Comes Out As LGBT During School Ceremony

A New Jersey teen took to his school’s highest platform in January, announcing he was LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender) to his entire graduating class as well as parents and teachers while accepting an award. Jacob Rudolph, a high school senior in Parsippany, N.J., delivered the brave speech after being named Class Actor. “Sure, I’ve been in a few plays and musicals, but more importantly, I’ve been acting every single day of my life,” Rudolph tells the crowd. “You see, I’ve been acting as someone I’m not…you see me acting the part of straight Jacob, when I am in fact LGBT.”



In February, singer-songwriter Hailey Rowe released a new single, “My Boyfriend Is Gay.” In the video for the pop song, the singer-songwriter laments the fact that her boyfriend actually plays for the other team. References to chocolate-tinis and shots of her gay beau curling his eyelashes abound.

堀さんのLive Alive~ヲタ成分増し増しで~ : レポート:iRis 2nd ...

遅くなりましたが、23日に行われたi☆Risのライブレポートです。

これまで六本木のライブは、EX-THEATERに今年何度か来ていますが、

ブルーシアターは初めて。で、どう行けばいいのか駅の案内図で見ると、

テレ朝のすぐお向かいの辺りなので行ってみるも、どこなのかすっかりわからない。


で、改めてスマホで調べてみると、こっち側(テレ朝)からは入れないことが発覚!!


それでも道はわかったので、一旦六本木ヒルズ&テレ朝周辺でまったりしようかな、

と思ったら、アカペラのコンサートやってて、しかもLittle Glee Monsterのライブまでやってたので、それを途中から最後まで見てました。


一旦麻布十番の方まで出て、マックで時間を潰して会場へ。

六本木ヒルズがババーン!とそびえ立ち、さらに振り返れば東京タワーまでハッキリ見える、

というすごい場所にあるなこのホールw


開演前に入場時に特典として配られたドラマCDを一足先に上映しちゃいましょう、

ということでそれを聴きながら開演を待ち、いよいよ開演です。


セットリスト上げながら書いていきます。


1:ミラクル☆パラダイス

2:Dream☆Land

3:i☆Doloid


まず映像でメンバーが紹介されるたびに大歓声が沸き起こり、

「ミラクル☆パラダイス」で盛大に幕開け。コールが完璧すぎてすごい。

さらに勢いそのままに「Dream☆Land」「i☆Doloid」でも同じく盛り上がりっぱなしな状態。


ここで挨拶MC。

最初からテンションが凄すぎて泣きそうだった、本当に嬉しいですありがとうございます! と挨拶し、

今までのライブの中で一番盛り上がっていきますけど準備は大丈夫ですか!と煽ったところで、

まずは自己紹介タイム。

みんなまだ始まったばかりだけど、体力温存しろとはいいません、と飛ばしばくる宣言して次の曲へ。


4:徒太陽

5:イチズ

6:らむねサンセット


「徒太陽」で盛り上がったあと、少し落ち着かせる意味かバラードの「イチズ」「らむねサンセット」を歌い上げ、再びMCへ。


前回の1st Anniversaryの時は緊張しまくっていたそうですが、

ちなみに今回は前日何していたかの話になり、


ゆう:イベント出演後、緊張しっぱなしだった

ひみ:日が変わる直前にブログ更新し、それまでは寝落ちしてた

ゆうき:自宅のネット回線を繋ぐために

さきさま:お菓子食べてた

みゆたん:ヲタ活していた

ずっちゃん:ネイルやってた


とのこと。


で、衣装が新しくなったことに触れてから、

このあとちょっと雰囲気を変えてダダーっといきたいので、盛り上がってくれますか? と聞いてから次の曲へ。


7:No D&D code(Dressing Pafe)

8:Pretty Prism Paradise!!!(SoLaMi Smile)


ここでプリパラ!のユニットに分かれ、各ユニットソング「No D&D code」「Pretty Prism Paradise!!!」をそれぞれ熱唱!

もちろん歌う前にはセリフ付き。


実は今回Dressing〜の方は生歌披露するのは初めてだったそう。

(SoLaMi〜は以前1度別イベントで歌った経験あり)


なんかこのまま終わるのはつまらないから、ということで、

いいねの数を競う対決が劇中あったから、良かった方にいいねを言って欲しい、

ということでやってみるもほぼ互角、というか両方にいいね言ってくれた人が多かったよね、とフォローもあってか、引き分けという結果に。


プリパラの方も以後よろしく! と述べてから、ここで企画コーナー。

声優としての一面を見せるべく、特典でもらったドラマCDの話になり、その中で演じてるキャラクターを演じながらドラマCDの話とは別の話を演じることに。


その前に各自演じるキャラクターの説明をしてから本番。

軽音部のストーリーなのですが、最後にみんなにぜひ歌を聞いて欲しい、ということで、


9:Secret Pure Love


そのままライブへ突入しておしまい。

振り返りトークで、アドリブぶっこみまくりだったことを話して、

ここから後半戦へ。


10:Happy New World☆

11:Special Kiss

12:ユメノツバサ


「前半よりさらにさらに盛り上がってくれると思うんですけど、みんなオッケー?」と煽って、

「Happy New World☆」で後半戦スタート!

さらに「Special Kiss」「ユメノツバサ」とたしかに前半戦以上に盛り上がる曲を立て続けに飛ばします。


前回の1stのときも思いの丈を話す場所があったから、ということで、

今回もワンマンを迎えるにあたっての思いを各自が話して、

ここからラストスパートということで、心してかかってきてね! と曲へ。


13:幻想曲WONDERLAND

14:§Rainbow

15:Color


「幻想曲WONDERLAND」はクラップとコールで盛り上げて続くはキラーチューン「§Rainbow」。

そして「次がラストの曲になります」と繰り出したのはデビュー曲「Color」。

「もっともっと上にもっともっと頑張っていきます」と挨拶して終了。


もちろんアンコール(i☆Risコール)が沸き起こり、再登場。


グッズの話になり、Tシャツのデザインはゆうきがデザインしたものらしく、

たまたま手書きでスタッフに渡したら商品化してくれたそう。

i☆Risブレード(ペンライト)の話では、7色光って、メンバーカラーの6色+i☆Risカラー(箱カラー)として白を採用したらしい。


EN-1:ココロノヲト


せっかくアンコールで呼んでくれたので、まだ歌ってない曲あるよね? という話になり、

「ココロノヲト」はこれまでのi☆Risになかった激しいアッパーロックナンバーで、文字通り熱唱し、MC。


みんなで記念撮影をして、さらに告知タイム。

・プリパラ第3クールOPとなるi☆Ris8枚目のシングルが来年2月に発売。

・来年春にアルバムリリース決定

・来年春にライブツアー決定(東京、名古屋、大阪)。最終日東京の会場はZepp Tokyo。

→この日の参加者に最速先行予約できるチラシが終演後配布されました


EN-2:Make it!


いい感じの雰囲気なのであと1曲盛り上がっていけますか! と煽って、

ラストは「Make it!」で超絶盛り上がり終了。


「みんな最高! 今日は素敵な景色を見せてもらって、素敵なプレゼントをもらったから、来年再来年もっともっと上へ行って笑顔を見せていくので、これからも付いてきてください!」と挨拶し、

最後にラインナップをして、最後の挨拶「バイチュッチュ♪」をして終演です。


2時間半の公演でした。

帰りに外出たら、いい感じに東京タワーと六本木ヒルズが照らされててキレイでした〜
