First that I've heard that the President's nominee for the head of Customs and Border Protection is gay.

Oh yes, he is!

A picture of him and his husband is further along in the article where they're holding a dog for adoption.

I had a lady friend who once told me that ALL good-looking Men were gay! haha.......so I told her I guess that means all Straight Men are homely or ugly and you can't be Gay unless you are considered good-looking? She just laughed! So, SO superficial that one........

That article about Colton Underwood is practically everywhere on the celebrity news. I am happy that he worked through the difficulties he had.
“An affair with the G train,” he smirked into the floor, his eyes filling with tears. - The Bellwether

"Jack felt D hard beneath his hand. He leaned his forehead against D’s again. “You feel it,” he whispered, barely breathed, not really a question." - Zero at the Bone

In 2000 a man found a baby in a subway station, and soon he and his boyfriend, now husband, adopted him (the judge who assisted in the adoption married them). The son is now in college!

I'd like to watch the segment about it on ABC News too, but you have to jump through a lot more hoops to watch last night's news than you do for NBC!
