Gay news,U.S district court thinks DOMA unconstitutional, HIV vaccine breakthrough, U.K supreme court/asylum, Helsinki Gay Pride arrests

9 07 2010

A U.S district court in Boston has ruled that section 3 of DOMA is unconstitutional. It is an enormous victory for same-sex marriage. In both Commonwealth of Massachusetts vs Health and Human Services as well as Gill vs Office of Personnel Management, Judge Tauro thinks DOMA violates equal protection principles. Great news!!

U.S government scientists have discovered 3 powerful antibodies against the HIV virus. The strongest neutralizes 91% of all cells!! More than any before. The cells were found in an African-American gay man who had the cells naturally. Researchers screened 25 million of his cells to find 12 that produced antibodies. Unfortunately it will be years before this can be used on people, still very good progress.

The U.K Supreme Court has decided that gay couple who fear retribution in their home countries have a right for asylum in the U.K. The decision involved 2 men from Iraq and 1 from Cameroon. Lord Hope said that to compel a homosexual person to deny their sexuality is to deny them a fundamental right to be who he is. Well said. Lord Roger said that just as male heteros are free to enjoy rugby, beer and talking about woman with their male friends ,gays should be allowed to listen to Kylie ,drink exotic coloured cocktail and talk about boys with their girlfriends. A little ridiculously stereotypical but I guess he meant good.

Last weekend it was Helsinki Gay Pride. Three men decided to ruin the fun and used pepper spray and smoke bombs. Over 30 people were hit by it and also some children. Nobody was injured but the men have been charged with a hate crime and Finnish president Tarja Halonen denounced the attack.

Gay news, Supreme Court rules bigots be made public, European countries can decide on gay marriage themselves, Woman sues baptist church

25 06 2010

The highest court in the U.S, the Supreme Court, has ruled that the names of petition signers in Washington State Referendum 71 have to be made public. That means that people who signed an attempt to overturn a “pro gay” domestic partnerships law will be for all known as bigots. Conservatives tried to block the release of signatures fearing retributions, but all members of the court except for Clarence Thomas voted against them. Good news.

A High Court in Europe has ruled against 2 gays from Austria that wanted to get married. The court thinks the decision about marriage should be left up to the individual countries themselves and since there is a registered partnership in Austria that should be enough. As long the poor countries in Europe get their money from the Netherlands, Belgium and Scandinavia, they wanna have as little to do with our morals as possible and stay back in the Middle Ages.

An African-American woman sued her Covenant Baptist Church because they include gays and welcome same-sex unions. She says she gave$ 250.000 in past donations and wanted that back. She went to a gay wedding at the church just to see if it was real and she said it was disgusting. Now she dropped the lawsuit (because she had no chance in hell) and found herself a new bigot church.That from a woman who in her youth also was discriminated for being black. Unbelievable.





Billie Jean King Cup at Madison Square Garden

2 03 2010

Yesterday night my boyfriend and I went to the BJK cup and it was pretty cool. Participants were Svetlana Kuznetsova, Kim Clijsters, Venus Williams and Ana Ivanovic. The only spoiler on the night were two fat african american lesbians that had their arms around each other and sometimes when I moved, I touched their arms that were way over the seat and one of them got pissed at me. Well, I got pissed right back at that bitch and only than she backed off. The tennis made up for it though, definitely the last 2 matches. The first one was between Kim Clijsters and Ana Ivanovic and that was not on a very high level, Kim won 7-6 but showed that she was rusty after a 6 weeks dry spell on the tour. Ivanovic showed at times the brilliance that made her number 1, but was often very sloppy. The second semis was between Venus Williams and Svetlana Kuznetsova. This match was very entertaining and both ladies played great. Venus just came from a 2-in-a-row tournament win and played very solid and proved to much in the end for Kuzzie, 6-4. After that there was some entertaining and the class of 2010 for the Tennis Hall of Fame were introduced and Ivan Lendl and John McEnroe were in attendance as well. As fellow viewers I saw David Duchovny with daughter who acted really cute together and Star Jones with entourage of obnoxious attention-drawing people. The final was between Kim and Venus and was pretty good, Venus won 6-4 3-6 7-5 in the end and got $400000 dollar, Kim $300000 and Kuzzie and Ivanovic each 250000 for 1 set of tennis. Not too shabby.





Gay news, Mrs. Robinson you are a hypocrite, gay marriage the good and the bad, Axel hotel in New York

11 01 2010

How delicious is the scandal homophobic Northern Ireland’s MP Iris Robinson who is married to the Province protestant unionist first minister?? Back in 2008 her reaction to a gay bashing in Ireland was that gays are an abomination and that they should see therapy to become straight again. Now she is herself knees down in a scandal that made her pull out if politics. She had an affair with a 19-year old boy that she funneled $80.000 in secret loans for him to start a cafe. She also fucked the boy’s father and had an affair with another man. The scandal has the potential to bring the entire government down. She still has no regrets for anything she said about gays. Maybe she comes to her senses in the institution she is currently in for mental problems.

While the heavily catholic Portugal became the 6th country in Europe were gays can get married, equality lost yet another time in the U.S. Like New York, the New Jersey senate voted against it this week. Pretty pathetic but it made at least some African-American religious freaks very happy as I saw on many YouTube clips. It is always baffling to see other minorities jump up and down when they see another minority stripped of their rights. Hallelujah!!

After having very popular hotels in Berlin, Barcelona and Buenos Aires, the hetero-friendly chain Axel will also open a hotel in New York. The site will be Hell’s Kitchen and opens in 2011. They also plan to open hotels in L.A and SF. I have never stayed there but have seen pictures of the chain and it looks very elegant and modern. Most gay hotels are a bit dated and not very chic and I never understood why, because most gays like luxury and have a fair bit of money to spent. I bet it will become a huge success.





Gay news; NBA players calls guys faggots, “the Advocate” in trouble, christians want to get arrested

8 11 2009

Last week it was an NFL player that spewed his gay hate and this week it was an NBA player named Drew Gooden of the Dallas Mavericks that called two guys faggots. Apparently this is not the first time he did this, cause two brothers claim he called them faggots during a game on Halloween. (African-American) athletes need to stop this behavior asap. This is just getting childish and ridiculous.

The most famous and longest running gay magazine “the Advocate” is in trouble. First it already went from bi-weekly to once a month and now it will be sent jointly with OUT magazine. This seems to be the beginning of the end. I think it has two reasons, first that many people do not buy printed magazines anymore but read their news on the internet. Second that “the Advocate” was boring. Give me Passport, Gay Times, Attitude, Instinct any day over “the Advocate”.

A groups of religious clergymen will go to Washington DC on November 16. They want to protest against the “hate crimes bill” by screaming anti-gay language in the hope to get arrested. All to become the martyrs they want to be and call it a rally of religious freedom. How christian and loving is this, huh??





Gay News, Carrie Prejean sex-tape, gays thrown out of NY cap, gay candidate smeared as child molester

5 11 2009

Anti-gay bitch Carrie Prejean, the new darling of the christian right whom God was speaking to directly according to many during her famous pageant speech, has a sex tape out so dirty and raunchy TMZ did not wanna publish it on their website!! hahahaha!! During her multi-million dollar lawsuit against  Miss California USA they showed her parts of the XXX-rated tape and she immediately walked away with basically nothing. $100.000 dollar which is a fraction of her lawyers costs. What a wholesome christian girl. What’s next, a Maggie Gallagher sex-tape??, haha.

A gay couple that was hugging in the back of a taxi was thrown of out the taxi in New York by their driver Medhat Mohammed(surprise, surprise) after only to blocks. According to him hugging was not allowed in his taxi and they had to get out. Obviously it has nothing to do with the hugging itself, but with the fact that it where 2 men hugging. The Taxi and Limousine Commission is looking into it to see if it was service refusal. While I think hugging is fine, even if to people are doing a lot more the taxi driver first has to warn them and ask to stop before just throwing them out.

An openly gay Republican candidate for the Annapolis City council was being smeared as a child molester by a group called ” Friends and supporters of Black Annapolis. It also says: ” Keep our sister Classie Hoyle in, keep our African-American Power. Keep us from Sin and Sexual Assault and keep our children safe.” It is being investigates as a hate crime.

 





anti-gay bigot parade, NFL player, Joe the Plumber and more

28 10 2009

Yesterday I watched the fantastic musical Hairspray in the Netherlands. The dutch version really rivals Broadway and was hilarious. Watching this and so rooting for the right thing, aka equality between white and black to happen, it’s very annoying to read the following two examples in the news.

First the african american NFL player Larry Johnson, a running back for the Kansas Chiefs, who told two reporters to get their faggot asses out of the locker room and later directing similar language to a fan on Twitter. He apologized after pressure from the Kansas Chiefs but only to his team and kids that see him as a role model. Not to gays of course. He has been arrested for beating up girlfriends so he was not much of a role model to begin with.

And then an african american woman who goes biblically nuts at the Washington D.C. marriage equality hearing using God, reproduction, calling gays dogs, using the devil, demons and slavery to make her point against gay marriage.

Of course there are also white bigots. Proof yesterday was the interview with Joe Wurzelbacher aka Joe the Plumber. He was at Joy Behar’s show and she did definitely put him in his place, but what an idiot!. He calls homosexuality wrong, does not want his children to be around gays and says basically all pedophiles and that being gay is a lifestyle choice. When Joy asks him why people would wanna be gays if they are chastised by people like him he act like he has nothing against. The guy is stupid, a homophobe and why is the loser even famous?? People should not even interview him anymore
