“LET’S STAY TOGETHER”   President Obama takes the stage at the Apollo Theater in Harlem — just one of three stops during a fundraising swing through New York City on Thursday night.  His appearance on the world-famous stage, where he sang a few lines from Al Green’s classic song, was the first by a sitting president in the Apollo’s history.  (Photo: Haraz N.

You’ve heard them about a bagillion times before, and every December they are played over and over again, yup, it’s the same old Christmas and Holiday songs. But have you ever noticed that some of the lyrics are just down right creepy? Check out this video for my Top 5 Creepy and Sexist Christmas Songs.

It’s a time-honored tradition at Navy homecomings – one lucky sailor is chosen to be first off the ship for the long-awaited kiss with a loved one.
Today, for the first time, the happily reunited couple was gay.

The dock landing ship Oak Hill has been gone for nearly three months, training with military allies in Central America.

As the homecoming drew near, the crew and ship’s family readiness group sold $1 raffle tickets for the first kiss. Petty Officer 2nd Class Marissa Gaeta bought 50 - which is actually fewer than many people buy, she said, so she was surprised Monday to find out she’d won.

Her girlfriend of two years, Petty Officer 3rd Class Citlalic Snell, was waiting when she crossed the brow.

They kissed. The crowd cheered. And with that, another vestige of the policy that forced gays to serve in secrecy vanished.
