Gay news, gay pride float set on fire, Costa Rica, gay beating in Britain, DADT

4 07 2010

A gay pride float built, like every year, by a straight couple from Anchorage, Alaska was set on fire last week. Neighbors claim to have seen someone running from the scene just before the fire. The couple plan to use the ashes and pieces of scorch to make a new float called “Phoenix Rising.”

Costa Rica’s higher court suspended an upcoming vote on same-sex marriage because it might violate the nation’s constitution. Opponents of the referendum have argues that it is unfair to let 93% of people decide the faith of 7%. I agree with that.

A gang of up to 15 men and women have attacked a gay couple in Bradford, UK. The victims needed hospital treatment for head injuries after being struck by makeshift weapons from a skip. The gang chased the men, 21 and 37 and used gay slurs. Fucking savages.

A clip to show what is really going on with DADT, CNN did a good job with this.





Gay news; Levi naked?, Prop 8, gay teen beaten up

18 08 2009

Prop 8’s repeal will most likely not be  until 2012.  Lots of groups and papers like Equality California and the L.A. Times think 2010 will be too early. Forging alliances with minority groups, lining up financial support and getting a better campaign staff then this year takes time they say. While I agree faults have been made before I think people’s opinions have changed already since the prop 8 election with other states already having gay marriage. Why wait until 2012 when the support probably will be there already in 2010. Who knows what might happen after that. Maybe another war or something that changes people’s views again to the more conservative side.

A 15- year old boy from Michigan was assaulted last week and left with bruises, skull fractures and a broken lip. He told his parents and friends a while back that he is gay and 2 older teens apparently thought they needed to attack him. He is a brave guy and said afterwards they did not break his spirit. The case is being treated like a hate crime. Hope those little brats will end up in jail for a while.

The major of Anchorage, Alaska has vetoed a ban against discrimination based on sexual orientation, saying it is unclear such a thing exist!!. The measure was the subject of intense public interest and debate all summer. The Anchorage Assembly can override the veto of Republican Sullivan with 8 votes. 7 voted in favor of the ban in the first place. What an idiot, of course it exists.

It did not take long before Levi Johnston was made on offer after he said last week he would pose naked for the right amount of money. Nude magazine Unzipped ,who previously paid former lover of Portland’s major Adams a nice amount of cash is  willing to do the same for Levi. He gets a free interview with it as well in the nation’s most sold nude men’s magazine. I highly doubt he will do it, but maybe he should. His 5 minutes of fame will be up anytime soon.
