"Well, I'm a power bottom."—Boy George on Celebrity Apprentice after being told his task was to promote Blake Griffin, the LA Clipper's "power forward."

In these days with so much doom and gloom, I feel it's important to seize upon positive things when we find them. One such story is about the Islamic Center in Victoria, Texas. The center had previously been broken into several times and last week was destroyed by a suspicious fire. Just when it was darkest, a group came forward to give the Muslims a place to worship. Shahid Hashmi said, "Jewish community members walked into my home and gave me a key to the synagogue." Robert Loeb, president of Temple B'nai Israel, didn't think twice about the act of kindness. "We have probably 25 to 30 Jewish people in Victoria, and they probably have 100 Muslims. We got a lot of building for a small amount of Jews." There's a lesson to be learned there.

Last week, numerous sources claimed Trump planned to sign a "religious freedom" executive order which would roll back protections to members of the LGBT community in the workplace. It's been rumored that the bill was being prepared by Pence and his followers. Allegedly, Trump didn't even know about it. A few early drafts leaked. Protests were hurriedly mounted around the country. And each day ... nothing. On Thursday night, everyone said Friday was the day. And on Friday, no bill was forthcoming.

But an explanation emerged. Support for our community came from Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, Ivanka's husband and Trump aide. Ivanka is a registered independent and has been described as very progressive; Kushner is a lifelong Democrat. Allegedly, the couple not only argued against the order, but felt it was important to send out a strong message denying the rumor. The White House released a statement: "President Donald J. Trump is determined to protect the rights of all Americans, including the LGBTQ community." It's said the draft was one of about 200 that was written but never even reached Trump's desk: "Some are real, some are drafts of things people like, and some are ideas people from outside have suggested." While there's still much to question and worry about, let's savor the positive when we see it.

We all know Tom Daley is in great shape—a lad who has been known to share glimpses of it online ( as you can see on BillyMasters.com ). But, please, don't compare yourself to Tom's amazing body. It's futile. He said, "I train six hours a day, six days a week. It's not as if it's something that happens just from going to the gym for 20 minutes or an hour a day." Who goes to the gym 20 minutes a day and expects to look like Tom Daley? That said, Tom wants you to have hope. He added, "I know that if anyone else trained for six hours a day six days a week, they would get the same results."

Elsewhere in Great Britain, the Policing and Crime Bill finally went into effect. Commonly known as Turing's Law ( after Alan Turing ), thousands who were prosecuted for gay sex crimes will be pardoned. People already dead have been pardoned automatically. Everyone else can apply for a pardon. Once again, the dead get all the breaks.

Here in the States, the Boy Scouts made a historic ruling and decided that transgender boys can join the organization. In the past, membership was based solely on the birth certificate. A spokesperson for the group stated, "Starting today, we will accept and register youth in the Cub and Boy Scout programs based on the gender identity indicated on their application." This is more in line with the Girl Scouts membership guidelines. Although the Scouts won't admit it, this change came about because of an 8-year-old transgender boy from New Jersey named Joe Maldonado. Joe was kicked out of the Scouts a few months ago because he was born a girl. "Just knowing that he can go back to his Scouts and knowing that he's accepted, it means a lot," says his mom.

Our "Ask Billy" question comes from Stan in Los Angeles: "First, you had those hot 'Teen Wolf' boys. Then, Tom Daley. Now, there's a video of Adrian Grenier jerking off somewhere online. But it's vanished. Can you find it?"

I wish I could disclose the machinations I went through to get this video. Let's just say it pays to travel with a pair of Ben-Wa balls. In the video, Adrian is Skyping with someone and pulls his sizable appendage through the bottom of his briefs. About two minutes later, a male voice calls out to Adrian, saying he's gonna take off. Grenier says, "I'm just gonna take a shower if you wanna wait." The guy apparently didn't wait, so Adrian continues working on what Courtney Robertson from The Bachelor called "the biggest penis I'd ever seen—and the biggest bush!" The video may have disappeared from most places, but you can still see every inch of Grenier on BillyMasters.com .

When Adrian's appendage is big enough to have its own entourage, it's definitely time to end yet another column. Of course, you can get all this and much more on www.BillyMasters.com—the only site where a big bush isn't a political euphemism. If you've got questions, send them along to Billy@BillyMasters.com and I promise to get back to you before Tom Daley releases a 20-minute workout DVD ( and, perhaps, an R-rated version ). Until next time, remember: One man's filth is another man's bible.
