Gay Pride Toronto

6 07 2010

With all the previous bitching and talk about pro-Palestina and anti-Israel groups and what not, it seemed like a pretty normal Pride to me after viewing this clip. Funny, a little raunchy and happy.

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, gay acceptance Netherlands, scouts can discriminate, bullying law passes Senate, bigots at Twin Cities Pride

24 06 2010

The accepting of gay people in the Netherlands still leaves a lot to be desired. According to a SCP poll gays are not excepted well by religious people, lowed educated one and Turkish and Moroccans(surprise, surprise) More than half on gay teens has thought about suicide. I can relate, so did I. Still think overall it is pretty good with the acceptance here, but we are not there yet.

A federal court ruled in Philadelphia , that the Boy Scouts can still discriminate against gays even though that goes against the city’s anti-discrimination law. They cannot be kicked out of a city-owned building and do not even have to pay rent, all because of their First Amendment rights. I do not know the specific details about this case/the U.S law enough to know if the city could even get them out with the First Amendment rules in mind but it is ridiculous that gays are still not allowed at the Boy scouts.

After being 9 years in the making New York finally passed an anti-bullying law though the Senate that now only needs to go to Governor Paterson’s desk for a signature. It passed 58-3, except for 3 Republicans. It is only for public school and applies to events on school grounds and school events and will prohibit harassment and discrimination based on gender, sexuality, color, religion and more. Took forever but great is passed.

Am anti-gay Evangelist couple Johnson is allowed to distribute bibles and anti-gay leaflets at Twin Cities Pride. The organizers paid the city 36.000 for the day and want to decide themselves who can have a booth at the parade and want to ban the Johnson’s trough a court-ruling. The religious law firm ADF filed a complaint and say they should be able to be there and speak their hate. The Johnson’s were banned last year but showed up anyway and got arrested. Here is a clip from last year before the arrest. I dunno about this one, there is Freedom of Speech, but these people are just doing it to hate and cause trouble.





Gossip, Britney sued for nudity, Lady Gaga/Kathy Perry, Seinfeld,

10 06 2010

According to Britney Spears’ former bodyguard she sexually harassed him by walking around nude all the time and coming on to him. Fernando Flores wants multi-million dollars. This is not the first bodyguard to complain about this. I think they should not be such pussies. Many man would love to see a naked Britney all the time.

Lady Gaga’s new clip has caused a lot of controversy with mostly the catholic church. She wears a latex nun-outfit, walks around with a religious cross in front of her crotch and eats a religious symbol in the clip for Alejandro. Kathy Perry called it blasphemy, but she is just jealous I think. The clip is fine, nothing too shocking. I liked the Bad Romance and Telephone-clips better though.

Seinfeld re-runs have made $2.7 billion over the last 12 years. All that money goes to Jerry himself and Larry Kramer. Other cast-members get nothing. This amount is not surprising, I mean I love the show but it is on all the time.

Tom Cruise has some very kind and loving words to say about David Beckham. He admires him as an athlete, father and husband. He has a great spirit and solid body. Allegedly the last part is what he likes best, haha.
