Gay news, DADT-deal, celebrities (Gaga and Jason Mraz)gay witch-hunt in Kenya

25 05 2010

Yesterday the White House and top Democrats made a deal for the repeal of DADT. It is still a little hush-hush and vaguely termed but the overall picture is that soon the congress will be able to vote on repealing the ban on gays in the military(votes in favor or against are too close to call). The change though will not happen until dec 1 and the president would also be required to certify it does not harm military readiness. I first have to see it before I believe it, but it is a step in the right direction. Good day for gays AND for the military.

Lady Gaga loves the fact that people think she has a penis because that makes it even more special that people come to see her and don;t care what she is. Gay culture is at the very essence of who she is and she will fight for the gay community until she dies, Gaga says. Straight singer Jason Mraz explains one of the reasons he is such an ally to the LGBT community. He was beaten up and called a faggot at school himself and when one of his friends came out at the same time he realized how brave that is. Love artists that are so open and honest.

Kenya police had to protect 3 gay men who were about to be lynched by their fellow villagers. People from the village were trying to open the door of the house the gays were living and cops were just in time. A month ago people from Mnarani had sent a petition to the government for the removal of the gays. Poor guys…

A gay man who was beating up terribly in Ontario, Canada last summer has pleaded guilty to assault for doing something back!! The thugs shouted faggot and threw bricks at the gays and after on of the gay men pulled one thug of his friend’s back, he kicked him. He has no money to defend himself in court and just pleaded guilty.He only got a conditional discharge that will disappear as a criminal record in a year but still… How wrong is this??!!
