Gay news; Obama promises gays a lot again, Boyzone member died, Mickey Rourke says faggot again

11 10 2009

Obama again has committed to work for gay equality at the Human Rights Campaigns annual dinner in Washington. He promised a whole lot(nothing new though) but without time lines for doing so. Don’t get me wrong I think Obama is much better for gays then a lot of U.S presidents in the past like Reagan or both Bushes but so far it’s all talk and no action. Do I believe he wants equality for gays, yes. But is it a priority? Not at all!  He was funny though in his speech when he said he was opening for Lady Gaga(who was marching for equality in Washington)

Stephen Gately, a member of the in Europe very popular boyband Boyzone was found dead in his apartment in Mallorca at the age of 33. Gately was one of the first members of boyband to come out of the closet back in 1999 and had two high profile gay relationships. One of them was still going strong at the time of his death. He went out for a few drinks, came back, went to sleep and never woke up. Very sad and strange.

Mickey Rourke is in trouble again for using the slur “faggot”, kind of randomly for the last few years. He says for him it means the same as asshole and has nothing to do with gays. He has more gay friends then anyone he knows and he is not homophobic. GLAAD of course demands an apology but I don’t know if he needs to give one. This guy clearly is not homophobic and I think the gay community should pick it’s battles better sometimes.
