Gay news; Dustin Lance Black, Poland, Beirut

5 08 2009

Dustin Lance Black, Oscar winner with Milk and writer of Big Love, is gonna sue the website for leaking photos that show him having bareback sex with his partner at the time. He says he did not know the pictures were taken and demands $3 million. While I can understand him being pissed about sex pics being exposed while he is a serious writer and example for young gays, the pics clearly see him looking into the camera so I think he did know about this. And $3 million is quite a lot.

A gay men in Poland won a big landmark case against one of his female neighbors that kept calling him a faggot in the supermarket and apartment complex. The court in Szczecin ruled that the man should receive 15.00o zlotty. Great in a country were the government is so anti-gay. Personally I like Poland, have been there twice and my cousin married a very nice and cute girl in Poland where we had a great wedding, my boyfriend was invited as well. Never felt any anti-gay atmosphere there.

According to a travel article in the New York times, Beirut is the Provincetown of the Middle East. I have read more articles about Beirut and that is is fairly tolerant for gays and has a nice nightlife. Lots of people from neighboring countries come to the capital of Lebanon to be open and to party. While I think it’s great that there is some open-mindedness over there,  homosexuality is still illegal in Lebanon so I think I will just go to the real Provincetown instead.
