gay news,NC bigot country singer banned, Tom Cruise a homophobe, first U.K. gay tourist office

26 10 2009

Local North Carolina country singer Matt Boswell and his Hillbilly Blues Band have been banned from city performances in Reidsville NC after using a local festival to feature their hate speech. They used their own lyrics to a Merle Haggard song, dissing Wall street bankers and told gays and queers to go somewhere else because they can’t get married here. What a nice group of people!, but kudos to a small city in N.C for doing the right thing

Bronson Pinchot, who played Balky in Perfect Strangers, talked about working with Tom Cruise during the making of the movie “Risky Business”. Not only was Tom a big old bore but also a homophobe. He made constant unrelated homophobic comments like “You want some ice-cream, in case there are no gay people there” Bronson thinks it was funny that later on Tom Cruise was rumored to be gay. I’m not, you know what they say, the dogs that bark the loudest….

In London’s Soho district, U.K. first gay tourist office was opened this week. It will provide visitors with LGBT-specific information about the city and will sell tickets to various events and activities. Good to hear some positive news about the British capital after the news about hate-crimes in recent weeks.
