Gay news, oldest US gay bar to close, Belgium gay Prime Minister, gay house burned down in Iraq

19 06 2010

A gay bar in Fairfield ,Connecticut that has been open for 71 years will be closing shop. The owner, 57, said the new landlords have doubled the rent and it is just not profitable anymore. He bought it in 1989 after going there since he was 21. Before the 70’s it was a refuge for gays and in the 70’s it was the center of gay life in the area. In the 80’s it was there during the AIDS crisis and also open to women and brought gays and lesbians closer together. For many young people it was the first gay bar they visited and it is a real shame it will be closing.

Belgium might get its first gay Prime Minister ,socialist di Rupo. The biggest Party though in the elections were not the socialists but the New Flemish Alliance, a party that wants to separate Flanders from Wallonia. They do wanna make a coalition with the socialists and that leader is french-speaking Di Rupo. Does not seem to make sense but the reasoning might be that making someone President that most Flemish people do not like makes the chance of a separation even bigger.Sort of a trap. I can kind of understand Flanders though. They are much richer and have to basically support the poor Walloniers. I mean who would you pick, Dutch people or French. That is basically the question.

Police has set fire on a house in Iraq where 2 gay men, a lesbian woman and 2 transgender people lived. The people living there were arrested and one might suspect that they are being tortured as we speak. Since the arrest of Saddam Hussein 720 LGBT were arrested and/or killed. Horrible.

Some fun to end the day. Every year there is a 7-day AIDS cycle ride through California to raise money for HIV/AIDS. I once saw a documentary about this and it is touching to see people with HIV, volunteer and other people work together to achieve fantastic goals. For a few guys the biking was not tiring enough and they made a very sweet clip for Katy Perry’s song “California Gurls.”

Gossip, Sandra Bullock baby, Julia Roberts’ People’s most beautiful, Jenna Jameson/Ortiz, Gavin Rossdale fucked Courtney Love

29 04 2010

Wow, Sandra Bullock surely knew how to keep this a secret. She is the mom of an adopted baby since 4 months, named Louis!!. 4 years ago she and Jesse James started the adoption process and now that they get a divorce Sandra will be the only parent.

At the same issue of People where Sandra Bullock told her news, the most beautiful woman of the world was chosen. That was a shocker as well, Julia Roberts! WTF??!! I can name a couple hundred celebrities that are prettier. Who makes those lists?

Porn superstar Jenna Jameson and her husband UFC fighter Tito Ortiz looked like a happy couple for a few years. Not anymore. Monday morning they had an altercation after which Jenna called the cops and Tito was arrested for domestic violence. She first denied that he hurt her but after he said that she was addicted again to Oxycontin,she did confess he beat her up. He denied that and she just tested clean on drugs. Can you still follow it. I am believing Jenna, roid rage anyone???

Courtney Love admitted to Howard Stern that she had an 8-month affair with Gavin Rossdale when he already was dating Gwen Stefani. Courtney claims Gwen knew of the affair. It’s hard to believe Courtney Love but I heard rumors about Rossdale before. He allegedly also dated gay pop entertainer(very androgynous) Marilyn in the 80’s. That proves his taste is a bit odd.





Gay news, Madonna awfully quiet, White Party with big stars, Equality march in LA

13 04 2010

Madonna has been in Malawi for a while now building a school for children and has adopted 2 kids from Malawi as well. With knowing her previous record of backing gay rights, especially in the 80’s and 90’s, I am unpleasantly surprised she has said nothing about the gay couple that has been arrested there after wanting to get married. One of the jailed men is critically ill in prison. He has been vomiting, and having chest pains and a cough. He is gotten no medial treatment or painkillers. Where is Madonna is this??, too busy fucking guys in their 20’s and working out??

The yearly White Party in Palm Springs looked like it was a fabulous event. Palm Springs itself is great and then having a party with celebrities like Britney, Ke$ha, Kim from the Real Housewives, lots of “girls” from Ru Paul’s Drag Race and numerous famous porn stars. Wish I would have been there!!

700 people have marched in LA this sunday demanding Social Security Benefits for gays. They started at the gay & lesbian centre and marched towards the Social Security Administration Office in Hollywood. One of the political leaders in attendance was Senator Barbara Boxer. The protest was the kick-off of the Rock For Equality campaign.





Sex and the city spoilers/gossip

11 09 2009

I have a few Sex and the City spoilers for you guys. So if you do not wanna know what’s going to happen, don’t read any further. Carrie’s gay friend Stanford and Charlotte’s gay friend Anthony are gonna get married. This kind of bugs me because even though I know straight girls love to see these two together, I can’t see it. They both look like queeny bottoms so not a good match. Then again Stanford has always had more  feminine-acting  partners. The ballet dancer and the guy that collected dolls. Anthony though, would never pick Stanford. I saw the guy that plays Anthony, Mario Cantone, this year on Broadway with is comedy routine and he is hilarious. Another spoiler is the girls go back to the 80’s where Carrie is dressed like Madonna, Samantha is dressed as Dee Snider from Twisted Sister  and Miranda channels her inner Sally Jesse Raphael sans glasses. And the most revealing story line is that Big is gonna move to London after losing tons of money through the recession and has an affair with a woman there and after Carrie break up with him she finds out  that she is pregnant. Wow.
