Gay news, gay attack Staten Island, gay/celebrities, Latvia not in EU anymore?

11 07 2010

A gay couple was harassed by a couple of teenagers Wednesday at a White Castle restaurant in Staten Island. A group came in and when one of the guys looked at the group they told him:” What are you looking at fag.” When the gay guy replied: What are you looking at,” the group left. A few moments later one of them felt a bob to the head and they quickly ran out. Outside they got separated and one guy got hit and was semi-conscious and bleeding. He needed stitches at the hospital. Hope the cops found the fuckers.

Posh Spice, Victoria Beckham, says she is a gay man in a woman’s body. That is why she loves fashion, glamour and Lady Gaga. So David Beckham is partly gay, haha. One can dream. Soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo gets more and more gay rumors as well. The purses, baby through a surrogate, painted toenails, and now dinners with Lance Bass. I dunno ,probably just very metrosexual.

A European Parliament’s member from Democrats’66(my party) thinks that Latvia should be dismissed as a member of the EU for their anti-gay law. Great idea, but I think it would be better to let the whole EU go.

In 2009 there were 43% more complaints about gay discrimination than in 2008. By far the most is in Amsterdam( and you know who does it) Police does not know if it really increased this much or that people find filing a complaint easier. Probably a bit of both. Bad news though, Amsterdam with the closing of the mayor discos like Exit, Cockring etc and violence like this is really losing its gays capital title very fast. Berlin and Paris are already much better in Europe.





Gay news, 14-year-old gay basher caught, GOP Montana thinks gays are criminal, Supreme Court rules pro-gay again, anti-gay Tariq Ramadan sues Rotterdam

29 06 2010

In Amsterdam police arrested a 14-year-old gay basher. He was one in a group of 3 to attack 2 gay men back in early june. They spit on one of the gay man and when he was saying something about it they hit him in. The other 2 are still on the loose. He was not Moroccan for a change, but black.

One of the issues on the new platform for the Republican Party in Montana is to keep gay sex illegal. Cause being gay is criminal people!!! Ridiculous for a U.S state in the year 2010.

With a 5-4 vote the Supreme Court has decided that the University of California’s Hasting Law School can deny recognition of the School’s Christian Legal Society because it refuses to admit gays. They think that is against their core belief. Hastings’ thinks no campus group can deny people based on sexuality. Totally agree. Judge Kennedy was the swing vote and might be important if the same-sex marriage debate gets to that court.

Tariq Ramadan, the fired integration adviser of Rotterdam wants 50.000 bucks from the city. Ramadan has been extremely negative about gays in the past which led to an investigation after which he could stay but that caused the Libertarians to get out of the city council. A while back he was eventually fired because he also worked for Iranian government financed TV. Now he feels his dignity and honor is lost because of what happened. I think he should get lost.





Gay news, Cockring closed, counselors allowed to drop gays, Huckabee thinks gay sex has Ick-factor ,Texas GOP platform

21 06 2010

The Cocking is a big gay disco in Amsterdam and probably my favorite in the whole world. I haven’t been there in years but I used to go there every week(or more) and now it might be closing. They had a drug raid there and arrested multiple people for possession and dealing of drugs, the owner was arrested as well. I know the owner personally and always thought he was a cool and nice man(haven’t seen him in 6 years either and even if there was some drugs in the club?? What is the big deal, there are drugs in every club/disco around the world. Let people decide if they take drugs themselves. Cops could use their time better to arrest real criminals imo.

Update, Cockring is closed indefinite.

There is a debate in Nebraska about a new regulation that would allow counselors(psychologists, therapists) to drop a gay patient due to religious or moral reasons. While I would not want a homophobe counselor I also think it is very bad for people with mental problems to be denied because of their sexuality. They have problems enough as it is . So kinda torn on this issue.

Idiot politician Mick Huckabee was at is again by saying gay sex has an Ick-factor. What does he think the Ick-factor of him having sex is?? He does prefer same-sex over affairs with Nancy Pelosi and Helen Thomas.

The teabagger influenced GOP platform for Texas is calling for quite a few ridiculous calls. They want to make it a felony to perform gay marriages, and oppose legalization of “sodomy” (being gay). They also wanna ban the lottery and required sonograms for women seeking abortion.





Gay news, McDonald’s COO bigot, Sesame’s Bert comes out(sort of), heavier penalties on gay hate in Amsterdam, more anti-gay violence in Canada

16 06 2010

The french McDonald’s ad that was so cute and nice about gays has sparkled a lot of media attention. The Chief Operating Officer of McDonald’s USA, the african american Donald Thompson, says such commercials will never run in the US. Why??Because the U.S is a christian county and he himself a good christian man who has his own beliefs in that regard. Aka bigot.

Bert from Sesame Street said on his Twitter that he has the same hair as mr T, except his is a little more (ho)mo and a little less hawk. I dunno if this account was hacked or not, silly but pretty funny anyway.. They are either gay or non-sexual, Bert and Ernie. But no kid cares!! Surprised the right-wing has not attacked them the same way as one of the Teletubbies.

The justice department of Amsterdam is gonna punish anti-gay violence with an extra 50 % on top of the standard law. Anti-gay violence in Amsterdam is on the rise and police wants to use camera’s and fake-gays(police men(out of uniform) walking hand in hand) to find gay bashers. Great ideas!

Just like in Amsterdam, also in Canada anti-gay hate has increased significantly. In 2007 there were 71 incidents and in 2008 double as many. Later probably even more but those date have not been released yet. Gay organizations say this is only 25% of the real numbers because many men do not go to the police after anti-gay crime out of shame. Not surprised, have blogged about a lot of hate in Canada in the last year. Shame of such a great country.





Gay news, Dutch protest Amsterdam/Utrecht, marine gay-bash in Georgia, hate academy in Chicago

14 06 2010

In Amsterdam over 1000 people protested against gay violence. Lately there have been 3 incidents of gays being harassed by Moroccans and people are fed up. The protest as at the gay monument at the Westermarkt. Hope finally something will be done about this huge problem.  Meanwhile in Utrecht people will come together to talk about a gay couple that left their house after being teased, and abused by Moroccan youth. The mayor calls it unacceptable.

2 U.S Marines have gay-bashed 26-year old  man in Savannah, Georgia. The men said they were harassed by the gay men and wanted to get away. Witnesses paint a different story. The Marines thought the gay man winked at them and after that they started to hit him unconscious while hurling slurs. The victim even suffered seizures and is still in the hospital. Fucking animals.

The anti-LGBT group “Americans for truth about homosexuality” are holding a Truth Academy August 5-7 in Coral Steam. It will teach people to be pro-family and learn how to counter gay activists so they can go around telling people who being gay is sinful, immoral and a threat to society. Seems like a wholesome family event.





Gay news, IBM most gay friendly, dad does not want kids of gays at school son, couple in BC, Can shuts down B&B because they do not wanna serve gays

11 06 2010

IBM is the most gay-friendly company in the world. This was made public at the international LGBT business conference in Amsterdam this week. Google and British Telecom are 2 and 3. IBM has worked on diversity for over 100 years, being the first to hire women and people of color. World-wide they have 400.000 employees. Keep it going!!

Archdiocese of Boston’s Pilot newspaper columnist Michael Pakuluk does not want his 6-year-old son to be in the same class as a gay couple’s kid because there is a real danger that kid would bring (or refer )to something obscene or pornographic to school as that goes along with the gay lifestyle. Is he for real?? How insulting to gay parents.

An elderly couple in British Columbia, Canada has decided to close their Bed&Breakfast rather than face additional charges of discriminating against gay customers. They say they have been harassed so bad just for “being themselves. The couple denied a gay couple staying with them because that was against their religious beliefs. According to their lawyer they are a lovely couple that do not want to be seen as discriminating, but they are christians staying true to their beliefs. Nasty bitter old bigots, is more like it.





Gay news, dutch elections, lesbian moms better, Oklahoma city councilman compares gays with pedophiles and wife-beaters

8 06 2010

Tomorrow is election-day in the Netherlands and because I never got my voter’s permit, I had to get one yesterday. It was a hassle but necessary. I read on the biggest gay website in the Netherlands that Libertarians(VVD) were number 1 with gays(also with me) followed by Geert Wilders’ PVV. Maybe if I would be gay and living in Amsterdam or Rotterdam and face all the discrimination and abuse by Moroccan guys I would be doing the same thing. Third is D’66, kinda left of the middle. I voted that my first 2 times. I think the Netherlands needs a strong economic party though to face the crisis and that is why VVD is good imo. I would never vote christian, green of left so there is not much else left to vote for anyway!!

According to a just published study from over 20 years, lesbian moms seem to raise better kids! On measurement of development and social behavior their kids scored similar to the kids of straight parents. But on self-esteem and confidence they scored higher, were better academically and had less behavioral problems. Wow!! Curious what the bigots say about this.

Oklahoma City approved a gay pride parade with 8-1 votes. The sole person against it was Brian Walters, who is a born-again christian that does not believe in the gay lifestyle. He said he would also not support wife-beaters or pedophiles to assemble. Cause that is the same thing, you know. What an idiot.

Sao Paulo Gay pride 2010 was a huge success. In Brazil, 3.2 million people celebrated and there were hardly any incidents. Pride is financed by the government and brings in millions of dollars to the city in revenue. I saw some footage and it looked pretty fabulous.





Gay news, soccer for gays?? Ellen ruined Idol, U.N blocked gay rights, anti-gay violence in Amsterdam

5 06 2010

Football.co.uk had an article on why America hates soccer. Reasons are the sport is too multi-cultural, not enough points are scored and it is too “gay”. This last part is because in the U.S the sport is mostly for girls, the fake diving to get a free ball is not manly and the screaming noises made by some players are emasculation. WTF?? I think soccer is not gay at all. There is not even an out top player. But some soccer players do come out in favor of gay men, like Beckham and Ronaldo recently. Maybe that is it??

According to the Christian Newswire Director American Idol was a bit of a flop this year because of good’ old gay Ellen. According to them you cannot make family oriented entertainment with gay people. Parents with good morals will not let their children watch gays. Ok that is why “Finding Nemo” with Ellen was a huge children’s hit. The show just sucked this year and apparently Ellen is not a great judge. But not because she is a lesbian.

The UN proved once more what a useless organization they are by having a Gay Human Rights Commission officially blocked from accreditation. The group was in limbo for years because conservative countries like Egypt, Qatar and Sudan blocked it because other gay groups criticised their anti-gay laws. Apparently the Middle-East and Africa is more important the U.S  and Europe.

Once again there was anti-gay violence against a gay man in Amsterdam last thursday. A man was spit on by 3 foreign(of course!!) teens and when he said something about it, he was called a dirty queer and got punched in the face. Anti-gay violence in Amsterdam got up with 23% in 2009. That is why Geert Wilders’ Party is popular by gays in the Netherlands.





Anti-gay muslim girl denied to host racism event

26 05 2010

The organization of Rhythm against Racism, an event in Amsterdam has decided they do not want their original host muslim girl Jihad Alariachi after protests from several internet-sites and magazines. The event is about tolerance and solidarity and Jihad hosted a show on dutch tv called Girls from Halal a few years back in which she said she does not accept gay muslim and Islam and homosexuality do not go together. Her show was about some (not too smart) muslim girls in dutch society, all in full burka and it was super annoying. People like her ruin it for the normal muslims in the Netherlands. Good she misses out on some extra cash trying to promote tolerance that she absolutely does not have herself. The funny thing is she is super pissed about the while thing and whines it is unfair because she might not accept gays but does not want them beaten up. How sweet huh. I put a clip of the show on here, but it is in dutch so just to get an idea.





Gay news, Expedia opens gay store, Harvey Milk dayMoscow Pride satanic, Gay blood ban

22 05 2010

Travel site Expedia.com has opened a Gay Travel Store on their website since yesterday on http://www.expedia.com/daily/gaytravel/default.asp. They partner with International Gay&Lesbian Travel Association to help find and identify gay-friendly hotels all over the world. I just had a look and it is pretty cool except for the fact that with hotels in for instance NY or Amsterdam I do not understand why some hotels are listed as gay-friendly and others not…. What qualifies as being gay-friendly? I probably keep (small)luxury hotels of the world as my number 1 but this might be a good alternative.

Today is the first Harvey Milk Day. It is only an official holiday in California but all over the U.S there are parties and events. As most of you know he was the first elected openly gay official in the U.S and was killed shortly after. People that do not know the importance of Harvey, should watch the movie Milk or one of the documentaries made about his life. Celebrations in his beloved Castro neighborhood will be biggest but also in LA, San Diego and NY marches and events for equality will be held. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will kick off a fundraiser in SF on Market Street. Yesterday she promised DADT would be over by the end of the year. Hope she can keep her promise. Below Milk Screenwriter Dustin Lance Black about the importance of Harvey Milk.

For the 5th year in a row Moscow Gay Pride was banned by Mayor Yury Luzhkov. According to him it is satanic and he will do everything to stop the event May 29. Moscow authorities have also blocked the website promoting the pride, GayRussia.Ru. How democratic.

There might come an end to the FDA approved ban on gays giving blood donations. The Department of Health and Human services wants to hear presentations and engage in deliberations on the topic. Since september 1985 men who had sex with men(even once) were not allowed to donate. This change would be about time, there are tons of monogamous gay men who are HIV-negative and can donate.
