  • gay television, abc, gay sitcomJanuary 7, 2009

    Ellen Degeneres takes home the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Talk Show Host 12 years after having her ABC sitcom cancelled in the aftermath of publicly coming out.

  • January 7, 1999 MAD Magazine makes the Ex-Gay Movement, well, mad after running a mockumentary parody of the delusional group’s print advertisements. At least comedy registers with the group, if not the heaps of scientific study proving the movement is full of BS.
  • January 7, 1956 Don’t ask about gay sex forced on you at gunpoint, don’t tell about gay sex forced on you at gunpoint. Frank Jones is kicked out of West Point for receiving a beej at gunpoint from fellow officer Melvin Dir. Sounds wobbly!
