Gay news, trans man beaten at college, anti-gay pastor caught, gay-friendly Slovenian cafe fire-bombed, Happy Pride NYC

27 06 2010

A 23-year -old trans man named Lance Reyna was beaten and robbed in the bathrooms at a college in Houston. A thug put a knife to his neck and called him gay slurs, then he kicked and punched Reyna while he was on the floor and after that he ripped the wallet from his pants and fled. Police are on the look-out and made a list of suspects.

Reverend Tom Brock is a senior pastor at Hope Lutheran Church in Minneapolis and  a loud and outspoken critic of gays. An undercover journalist for gay Lavender Magazine went to a therapy session for men struggling with gay feelings after an anonymous tip and heard the rev, talk about his gay experiences. Later the wrote about this in an article.Some say it is unfair they outed him. I totally disagree, if you are a homophobic pastor or politicians but at the same time have gay sex, you are a hypocrite that should be exposed.

For the third time this year a gay-friendly cafe in the Slovenian capital Ljubljana has been attacked. First this week the place was fire-bombed with Molotov cocktails which  burned the exterior. Friday night the attackers sprayed death to faggots on the walls. Police is extra on the look out but in Eastern Europe as a gay man, police is not your friend.

It is Gay Pride weekend in NY, with the ultimate event, the Pride March today starting at noon. Marshals are army-man Dan Choi, Judy Shephard(mom of Matthew) and high school prom lesbian, Constance McMillan. I love the parade and am bummed I am not in NY this year to see it. Hope everyone enjoys the good weather and has fun!!

Gay News, GLAAD stupid again, homosexual a slur, man sues for “I’m Gay” license plate

13 02 2010

While there are many gay organizations doing good things GLAAD proves to be stupid again. While in Africa this week gays have been beaten up, they have a super anti-gay law coming up there and in the U.S there are every week also anti-gay crimes, GLAAD focused on this: John Mayer, a gay ally that has stood up for gay rights many times, told playboy he gave Perez Hilton the dirtiest, tong-iest kiss ever, almost as if he hated fags. Now GLAAD want him to apologize for what he said. Just stupid, pick your battles!!!!!

A CBS/New York Times poll on DADT revealed that many Americans respond more negatively to the word homosexual then to “gay men and lesbians”. When they were asked if homosexuals or gays should be allowed to serve openly in the military 44% favor homosexuals and 58% favor gays!!!  I am not surprised by this because (Republican) bigots always use the word homosexual and not gay because they know it sounds sexual and that is a turn-off for a lot of people. So I think from now on politicians should all use the word gay!! Will not happen though.

A guy from Oklahoma is suing his state because he cannot use the license plate that reads: “I’m Gay”. Oklahoma Tax commission turned him down because the plate might be offensive to the public. Using straight sexy though is allowed, so kinda double standards. I do not think it is necessary to have your license plate read I’m Gay, but it is not offensive and definitely not more than STR8SXI.
