She kills it anyway

Chaka Khan has performed the Weather Girls' classic It's Raining Men on the Late Show with David Letterman last night.

Well, she tried to.

Clearly using an auto-prompter, the diva clearly didn't learn the lyrics.

While she still slayed it anyway, looking stunning for 62, it was slightly awkward.

Co-writer of the track, Paul Shaffer, was playing along on the piano. He didn't look too pleased.

You have to read this

It's the oldest gay story in the book.

Two guy best friends, both 'straight' to the other, have a drunken fumble and realise they have deeper feelings than they realised.

Well, maybe it's not the oldest story, but it's definitely a good one.

This happened to two guys in Georgia, and it all developed over Yik Yak.

The app, much like Whisper, allows people to share their secrets anonymously with strangers according to their location.

Inspired by Hasselhoff, Oprah, and RuPaul, this is gay sport as you have probably never seen it before.

Everyone loves a musical parody video, and the Toronto Triggerfish (reportedly the world's largest LGBT water polo club) has pulled out all the stops as they promote their upcoming annual tournament.

'The whole thing took about a month to produce...' explained Shih-Ming Yao, director and star of the video. 'I'd like to say that there was a rigorous casting process, but to be honest we found a role for everyone that wanted to be in it.'

The couple found the lost dog in the mountains

A lesbian couple in Washington, United States, helped rescue a starving stray dog they found in the mountains by acting injured.

The couple had heard reports of the dog living in the wilderness at Evans Creek, who was timid and ‘unapproachable’.

They initially approached the dog with food, but repeated attempts to feed him failed.

After hours of trying, they decided on a different approach - by acting injured to show the dog they weren’t a threat.

Reactions include: 'Are you trying to die?'

How does a straight guy react when he's with his buds and a gay stereotype walks up to him and talks about their 'chats' on Grindr?

Well, pretty much like you'd expect.

The hidden camera prank video features Kevin Brueck as Gaybriel. The prank is two hot girls get a guy's info on the beach and then it gets sent over radio to the 'gay guy'.

Gaybriel then goes over to the guy, says 'Hey! It's me, Gaybriel! You know, from Grindr?' and uses a variety of info he's found out from the girls to trick the guy's friends into thinking it's for real.

This is perfect

When you see a picture of two young women wearing matching outfits staring lovingly in each other's eyes, and you hear there's a rant coming, you can only think one thing.

But thankfully, when Brazilian man Nelson Felippe expressed his disapproval of this photo, it was very different to what you might expect.

On the scene in Rio, he writes: 'I’m not prejudiced, I think everyone does what you want out of your life. But I think it’s absurd I be forced to witness a scene like that.

On the social and dating app, which you can download on the iPhone App store, every user's photo is of their cat.

For those who are without a whiskered friend, don't worry, as your photo will be replaced with someone else's cat (this is potentially false feline advertising, so just let them know.)
