Gay Days 'Minnie' Shorts Guest

Complained To Everyone But Us

10/7/2015 12:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

1007-disney-gay-days-FACEBOOK-01Disneyland might have pissed off a guest who was forced to change his outfit during the annual "Gay Days" weekend but our DLand sources say the guy never brought it up with them.

Anthony Gilet tells TMZ he was at Disneyland in Anaheim last weekend when a staff member allegedly chased him down and asked him to change. He says the employee told him his over-sized jersey and mini-shorts weren't appropriate for a family environment. 

But get this ... Gilet made a huge stink on social media about the double standard in men and women's clothing allowed at the park but we're told he never filed a complaint with park officials.

Anthony says he's still got love for Minnie and Mickey though and plans to return to the park.

Talk about a goofy situation ...  


Big Ang

Caitlyn Jenner ...

I'm Over 'HIM'

10/6/2015 1:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Big Ang decided to go on the attack against Caitlyn Jenner  ... but her choice of venue was odd ... a gay night club. 

It all went down during the question round of the Miss Feathers Pageant in New Jersey, where Ang asked contestants what they thought of Caitlyn Jenner.

A contestant's answer sends Ang off in a third-person pronoun tirade.

Big Ang punches below the belt a couple more times before walking off stage. She kinda reminds us of an evil Rodney Dangerfield, no?

MLB Hazing's No Big Deal

... We All Did It

10/5/2015 6:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

RELAX ... forcing MLB rookies to wear dresses is no big deal -- despite criticism that it sends a bad message to kids -- so says ex-MLB star Nomar Garciaparra

As we previously reported, the head of a powerful LGBT group is upset that several MLB teams forced their rookies to dress like women as part of a hazing ritual ... claiming it sends the message that the idea of men who wear dresses is something to be mocked.

1002-rookies-dress-up-SUB-TWITTER-01But Nomar doesn't think it's a big deal at all -- telling TMZ Sports, "When it's fun and good taste it's all good."

He added, "I had to dress up ... that's all part of it."

MLB Rookie Hazing

Cross-Dressing Sends Dangerous Message

... Says LGBT Org.

10/3/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1002-main-cubs-haze-twitter-02A powerful LGBT group -- backed by some HUGE athletes -- is calling for MLB teams to quit hazing rookies by forcing them to cross-dress ... because it sends a dangerous message to kids.

Several teams -- including the Oakland AsMiami Marlins and Chicago Cubs -- dressed their rookies up in women's clothing and paraded them around this week as part of a hazing tradition that's been going on for years. 

1002-sub-marlins-haze-twitter-01Enter Hudson Taylor -- head of Athlete Ally -- an organization that promotes LGBT acceptance in sports. Taylor says the cross-dressing ritual is designed to embarrass the players ... which reinforces the message that men in women's clothing is something to be mocked. 

"Requiring rookies to dress in feminine presenting clothing like wigs, dresses, and bikinis sends a strong and dangerous message that being a girl, woman, or feminine is somehow less than, and something to be mocked."

"Regardless of intent, as long as professional athletes participate in hazing of this kind, they will be continuing to perpetuate a culture that isolates, excludes, and marginalizes the experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and female athletes."

Athlete Ally has more than 130 pro athletes on its "ambassador" roster -- including Andy Roddick, Abby Wambach, Kenneth Faried, Martina Navratilova, Donte Stallworth, James Blake, Sydney Leroux and Megan Rapinoe.

breaking news

0924-caitlyn-jenner-getty-01She's official now ... Caitlyn Marie Jenner's name AND gender change was approved by a judge in L.A. Superior Court on Friday.

Caitlyn was not present, but her attorneys were there for the very brief hearing. The judge quickly gave his stamp of approval for the name change after asking if there were any objections. There were none. 

The judge didn't say it in court, but Caitlyn's request to legally change her gender was also approved. We're told judges typically do NOT mention gender changes on the record out of respect for the applicant.

Marlon Wayans

Transgender Jokes

Lead to Message of Tolerance

9/23/2015 9:51 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Marlon Wayans wants a partial sex change so he can advertise bras ... but when he put his joking aside he delivered a pretty touching message. 

Marlon was leaving the grand opening of Big Boy's new vegan restaurant, 2Good! in North Hollywood Tuesday night, when he started joking about what he would and wouldn't do in the sexual reassignment department. 

Then he gets real. 

Waka Flocka Flame

Caitlyn Jenner's 'Rebuking God'

9/18/2015 7:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Waka Flocka Flame says people who change from men to women and vice versa are "evil."

The rapper was on Charlamagne Tha God's Breakfast Club Friday when he was asked about Caitlyn Jenner. Waka says what Caitlyn and others like her have done is "rebuking God," and they've given in to "the devil playing tricks on" their minds.   

He's upset that Jenner and others send messages on TV to impressionable kids ... and adults need to be more responsible.

... On the Course

9/18/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0917_caitlyn_jenner_golfing_x17Caitlyn Jenner proved she can keep up with the boys ... by playing from the most difficult tee box on the golf course.

Jenner hit up Sherwood Lake Club in Thousand Oaks, CA earlier this week, and drove her balls from the tee box farthest from the hole. Golfers call it the tips, and it's reserved for the most skilled players.

Caitlyn is a member of the exclusive Sherwood Country Club -- but while that course is under construction -- members have access to the 3-par course at the Lake Club. 

As we previously reported -- Caitlyn will have to reestablish her golfing handicap with the USGA now that she's a woman. This oughta help.

Gender Change

I Still Sign My Name Bruce

9/16/2015 11:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0916-caitlyn-jenner-getty-01TMZ has now obtained the official documents Caitlyn Jenner filed to change her name and gender for legal purposes. 

In the docs, she says she wants a judge to sign off on her new name ... Caitlyn Marie Jenner.

She also checks the box to change her gender from male to female. It's interesting ... she signed the documents "Bruce Jenner," presumably because that's her recognized legal name.


TMZ broke the story ... Caitlyn says in her legal docs she wants medical and other info sealed from the public out of fear for her safety. She says in a declaration, "Although public support for my transition has been overwhelmingly supportive, I am also receiving unwelcome negative attention from private citizens, including threats of bodily harm."

Caitlyn attached a physician's declaration to the documents ... but they were not released pending a decision on sealing them.



Mike Huckabee

I Didn't Tell Kim Davis

To Use 'Eye of the Tiger'

9/15/2015 5:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mike Huckabee is passing the blame for that whole Kim Davis-"Eye of the Tiger" fiasco, and his point is clear ... DON'T SUE ME! 

We spoke to the presidential hopeful about last week's Davis rally where the Survivor hit blared over her entrance. As we reported, the band was pissed and threatened legal action since no one asked for permission.

Sounds like Huckabee's aware of the risk, because you gotta see his reaction when we asked who picked out the song.

As for Davis returning to work at the county clerk's office -- Huckabee told us if he thinks she'll stand her ground on gay marriage, or find middle ground.

Fears Physical Threats

9/15/2015 11:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0915-caitlyn-jenner-getty-01Caitlyn Jenner has filed legal documents asking a judge to formally declare her a woman, but she's afraid of providing the necessary information to the court because of physical threats ... TMZ has learned.

The documents were filed in L.A. County Superior Court Tuesday. Caitlyn is asking for an official name change as well as a gender change.

Sources connected to Caitlyn tell us, she filed a declaration saying she's received a lot of support but not everyone is happy with her ... she's received threats of physical harm and she's scared if she has to give up personal info such as medical history, it will escalate. 

Caitlyn is asking the judge to keep the private information sealed, but as for gender and name change, it's full steam ahead.

I Get It Now ...

Changes Tune on Gay Marriage

9/14/2015 3:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0914-caitlyn-jenner-GETTY-01More change for Caitlyn Jenner -- her controversial opinion on same sex marriage has evolved ... dramatically.

Jenner wrote on her blog ... "After hearing from my gay friends and learning more about the hardships they faced because of discrimination, it became clear to me that everyone should be able to marry the person they love."

Caitlyn most likely heard from her gay friends when her appearance on "Ellen" aired last week. On the show, she admitted she was a traditionalist and had opposed gay marriage ... but was now just "ok with it." It was stunning, considering her own crusade for acceptance.

The backlash was immediate, and, apparently, impactful.


Chris Brown

Settles Beef ...

Over Gay Pride Gig

9/14/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0911-chris-brown-black-gay-pride-TMZ-01Chris Brown and the folks who accused him of bailing on ATL Black Gay Pride Weekend have settled their differences ... and all it took was CB forking over $12,500.

According to our sources, a deal really was in place for CB to perform at the September 7 event, but details of the performance never got to Chris.

We're told the talent agency that booked the gig for Chris believed the event promoters had breached the contract -- by using the wrong pic of Chris on posters -- so they never told him about the deal, which is why he never showed

But both sides just want to squash the mix-up -- so we're told Chris' agency returned the $12,500 deposit. However, the Pride promoters say they haven't received the dough yet, and they'll sue if they don't get it soon.
