Gay news, Castro shooting, first presidential gay marriage, gay domestic violence by former Minnesota Viking

28 06 2010

During Pink Saturday in SF’s Castro a man shot 3 people during the kick-off of the Gay Pride festivities. It happened at the corner of Market and Castro in front of  The Cafe at 11pm. A 19-year old man was killed and a man and woman injured. The suspect, another 19-year old man was taken into custody. I used to walk there everyday, so scary and sad…

Icelandic Prime Minister Sigurdardottir married her partner at the same day gay marriage became legal in Iceland yesterday. They already had a registered partnership since 2002. This makes her next to being the first gay Prime Minister ever also the first head of state  to have a same-sex marriage.

That gays are no different from straight people unfortunately also goes for domestic violence. Former Minnesota Viking and out gay man since 2002, Esara Tuaolo, was arrested last week for domestic assault and 3 misdemeanors. He was released on bail but given a no-contact order with the victim. There are not many high-profile same-sex domestic violence cases on record, so I am curious how this pans out and if it becomes a landmark case.





Man dies in S&M club

24 06 2010

A S&M club in a small town close to Antwerp, Belgium had a bizarre death. A 56-year old men died after having breathing problems and 2 S&M female masters have been arrested. The specialize in hard-core session, but this one might have gone too far!!!





Gossip, Osbourne’s shut down bigots, Jodie Foster, Joe Jackson, Sean Hayes at Tony’s

14 06 2010

As I previously mentioned, Sharon and Kelly Osbourne were Gay Pride marshals in LA this weekend. While they were on their float they encountered some anti-gay activists and the girls shut them down. Sharon yelled: ” You should be ashamed of yourselves,” though the speakers and Kelly told them her God does love gays. Well done!

Jodie Foster was in the news this week for allegedly attacking a 17-year old guy. According to the guy’s father Jody scratched, pushed and shoved him. She then asked, “Do you even have a mother, you slime ball.” Jody says the guy was a paparazzi because of his huge camera, but according to the dad he is just a kid with a nice camera. LAPD is vetting the case but I think Jodie is telling the truth. Besides, 17 is not a kid anymore.

Joe Jackson, Michael’s despicable dad who looks like a dried out tranny, is at it again. He is now claiming mother Katherine is to blame for Michael’s death. He says he could barely look at Katherine after Michael’s passing because he had warned her to go over to Michael and stay there to help him with his problems. He could not do it because Michael was a mommy’s boy.(Yeah with such a dad who wouldn’t). And because Katherine did not want to intervene with Michael’s privacy he is now death. Katherine’s lawyers are already after Joe. What an asshole that guy is.

Sean Hayes hosted the Tony’s this year and took aim at the infamous article in Newsweek a few weeks ago that said he could not convincingly play a straight men. Watch it for yourselves.





Violent nun on the run

11 06 2010

A dutch nun, member of the filthy rich Brenninkmeijer family, is on the run for the police of Denmark that wants to arrest her for death by fault and assault. Theresa Brenninkmeijer back in 1993 had bound an old demented nun to a chair and put another nun with really light clothing in a freezing garden who died half an hour later. Theresa told the others back then that they should tell police the nun died in bed. On of them did go something about it and went to the bishop of Denmark who only told the Vatican and he refused to go to the police so the story was never made public. The nun is in Peru now where she owns a cloister. What a devil in disguise.





Gossip, straight celebrities&gay kisses, Celebrity Rehab, Chace Crawford

5 06 2010

Yesterday was apparently a good day for straight celebs to kiss with same-sex partners. For Miley Cyrus to do it at Britain’s Got Talents was not a huge surprise. But for Dustin Hoffman and Jason Bateman to do it while all the camera’s where on them at a Laker’s Game . Pretty damn cool.

Production on Celebrity Rehab with Dr Drew was halted because they could not get any real celebrities. Last year they had Dennis Rodman and Mackenzie Philipps as “stars” but this year so far it is Jason Wahler, Gummi Bear, the Empress of Lucite(Shauna Sand) and one of the Pointer Sisters. Who?? Yeah!! But the d-list stars are funnier anyway and less guarded, like Kari Ann Peniche last season. Love that show.

Chace Crawford, heart-throb that does nothing for me, and star of Gossip Girl was arrested yesterday for possession of marijuana somewhere in Texas. He got out with bail. When do they just make pot legal over there?? Nice mug shot though.

Poor Gay Coleman, seems like now that he is dead people care more about him than hen he was alive. His moron ex-wife and parents fight over his remains, his ex-wife cannot afford his funeral but makes all these TV appearances and the 911 call after his fall was released and it is pretty shocking. She says she cannot help him because she is sick and afraid of blood. And also cannot drive him to the hospital because she might get a seizure and cannot have stress. WTF. She must have really loved him!!!





Eating at funerals

4 06 2010

Most people hate going to funerals but not a certain man from New Zealand. He went to 4 a week of people he did not even know. And that all for the food, he ate there and filled up  his Tupperware and it was off to the next one. Seems a bit like someone on Six Feet Under. Besides since when is there anything else than dry cake or nasty sandwiches at funerals.





Gossip, Ronaldo in favor of gay marriage, Dennis Hopper’s wife want money

1 06 2010

Soccer Star Cristiano Ronaldo told the biggest Portuguese Newspaper that he is in favor of marriage equality. He thinks all citizens need to exact same rights and responsibilities. Good a straight super star like that in a macho world speaks out about this.

Dennis Hopper passed away this weekend after a battle with prostate cancer. He desperately tried to divorce his wife Viktoria in the months before his death but did not succeed. She now wants 25% of his estate and $2500000 life insurance. I hope she gets very little, seems like a gold-digger to me.

Lad Gaga set a new record this week. Her song Alejandro was the 7th top 10 hit of her album The Fame Monster. The previous record was in hands of Michael Jackson with 6. Wow, that is pretty damn special!!

Sarah Ferguson went on Oprah this week to try to undo the damage after her selling out to a journalist. She said she had been drinking and was “in the gutter” when she wanted to give the undercover journalist access to her husband. I always liked her but this is all a bit shady.





Gay news, Havana/Minsk-pride, big difference conservatives in GB and US, Burial bill likely vetoed in Minnesota, retarded DADT statement

16 05 2010

Gay pride in Havana, Cuba was a huge success, hundreds paraded violent-free in drag and with flags. One of them was the daughter of the president Raul Castro, Mariela a long-time LGBT advocate. The Slavic Pride in Minsk was anything but a success though. The 40 brave participants saw some journalist and TV crew but did not get any further then 300 meters after which riot police arrested the gay men violently. There were also tons of counter-protesters, mostly skinheads who were throwing eggs.

It is interesting that the conservative party in Great Britain, the Tories have eleven openly gay members in parliament and nine in the glass closet. One is a lesbian and 2 are even ministers, the party is proud of that. Compare that to the US where there are zero . U.S has a long way to go in that regard.

A bill that passed the senate in Minnesota giving gays the same end of life rights as straights will likely be vetoes by the Republican governor Tim Pawlenty. According to him the bill in unnecessary and will stoke up the fire on a hot button issue. Unbelievable people believe gays have not the same rights hen it comes to burying their partner.

According to James Inhofe, Oklahoma Senator and Armed Service Committee member soldiers are unwilling to fight for lesbians and gay soldiers also in the line of fire. According to him soldiers are doing it for the man in the next foxhole and if that man is gays they would not want to anymore. How bigoted and foolish. Why does it work OK in Britain, the Netherlands and Israel then???





Gay news, Denmark gay adoption, Pride cancelled in Lithuania, hate crime charges dismissed in Brooklyn murder, drag queen dance-off

7 05 2010

I am surprised in a country like Denmark this was not law before but since this week the parliament passed a vote giving gay couples equal adoption rights. Until now they could only adopt individually or adopt the children of the one of the partners as step-children. Great news

Not so great is that in Lithuania, Gay Baltic Pride was banned. The court in the capital of Vilnius decided that. The court ruled that the parade could lead to public disturbances and say they can’t guarantee the safety of the participants. Nice excuse for not wanting it to happen.

This summer  in Brooklyn about a hate crime against Jose Suzuchanay and his brother. The two straight Ecuadorian men were walking arm in arm on the street. Jose was drunk and his brother was helping him. Two thugs thought they were gay and started screaming anti-gay slurs and anti-hispanic slurs to them and eventually beat Jose to death. Hakim Scott and Keith Phoenix were “only” found guilty of manslaughter and attempted assault. Pretty unbelievable to me.

And to finish of the news, something to make you smile. It is a dance-off between to Drag Queen in Sydney. And the girls can dance!!





Gay news, St. Eustatius wants no gay marriage just dutch millions, to be gay= death ok in Wyoming, Arabic gay magazine shocks Morocco

22 04 2010

St. Eustatius is since 2006 a “special county” of the Netherlands. The Caribbean Island does want to get the advantages of that with money(millions) etc, but does not want certain dutch laws to be applied there. So no euthanasia, abortion or gay marriage. Now they wanna go to the UN to make sure they do not have to follow the dutch rules. I say, let them take care of themselves.

Casper, Wyoming homeowner Chris Turnbull has an anti-gay Leviticus sign on his fence that reads, To Be Gay = Death. Hundreds of students have to walk past this sign every day  and officials asked him to remove it but he does not have to because it’s freedom of speech. According to him he does not do it out of spite. Yeah right.

A gay magazine called Mithly, meaning gay or like me, was secretly printed in the capital of Morocco, Rabat earlier this month. It is coming out on the internet as well as paper so it can be read by as many people as possible. Conservative Islamic people in parliament are already asking for arrest of the producers. According to them they should be treated the same as terrorists. I think it is great and very brave people started this magazine.
