Popular Instagram Gay Couple Break Up
(EDGE) Caleb Anthony and Kordale Lewis, who have been
dubbed Instagram's hottest gay couple, have ended their relationship.
People magazine reports Anthony, 27, posted a letter to Instagram to
the couple's 187,000 followers to announce that he and Lewis, 26, are
"no longer together."
The couple, who reside in Atlanta, have two daughters and a son
between the ages of six and eight, and blew up social media last year
when a photo of the adorable family showing their morning hair
routine with their daughters went viral.
"Being fathers is getting our daughters up at 5:30 a.m., making
breakfast, getting them dressed for school and putting them on the
bus by 6:30," the caption reads.
People notes the split may come to a surprise to their fans as the
couple appeared to be happy when they starred in a two-minute video
for Nikon's "I Am Generation Image" campaign back in January.
Marvel to Erase Hercules’ Bisexuality
(SFGN) Marvel announced that their Greek demi-god based
hero, Hercules will debut in his own feature series this November. But
Editor in Chief Axel Alonso said the character, who has previously
had flings with heroes and heroines in the Marvel universe including
Northstar, Wolverine, Snowbird and Black Widow, will be heterosexual
in the new series.
“Hercules and James Howlett’s relationship in X-Treme X-Men took
place in a unique alternate universe, similar to how Colossus was gay
in the Ultimate Universe, but is straight in the [main Marvel Universe].
Same goes for Hercules here,” said Alonso in an interview with Comic
Book Resources. (http://bit.ly/1M13wT2)
The announcement comes as a disappointment to LGBT comic
fans who had been hoping to see more in diversity from the comic
book icons. Marvel had started making some diversity headway
after making hero Iceman gay, and turning Thor into a woman for an
Trans Body Builder 'Hesitant' To Compete Female
(EDGE) World champion bodybuilder Jane Marie Kroczaleski
came out as a transgender woman this week but spoke with TMZ
Sports Thursday and said she is still deciding whether or not she'll
continue to compete as a man or a woman.
The athlete said she is worried about any backlash she may receive
when it comes to her bodybuilding.
"I'm hesitant because I'm afraid it would do more harm than good,"
she said. "I'm afraid it's a no-win situation because if I win people will
say it's not fair, it's cheating and I'm afraid that it would stir up a lot of
people protesting against transgender athletes and I would never want
to do anything to harm the transgender community."
On her Instagram, Kroczaleski calls herself a "transgender/genderfluid
