Gay news, no civil partnership Hawaii,Kylie wins gay prize, end to EU gay blood ban? Gay Pride Jerusalem, She’s back!!!

7 07 2010

Republican Governor Linda Lingle from Hawaii vetoed a bill yesterday that would have allowed same-sex civil unions in that state. Because Lingle invited Justice Steven Levinson, who back in 1993 found that the law banning gay marriage was unconstitutional, people expected she would sign the bill in favor of the civil unions. She thinks the bill is too similar to marriage though and that is only allowed for twice-divorced bitches like Lingle herself. Bigots were happy.

During Gay Pride in Madrid, Kylie Minogue was awarded a gay prize for her devotion to the gay community. She said it was a great honor and praised Spain for allowing gay marriage. Kylie sure deserves this prize, no big artist has been so supportive on gay issues for so many years. Except maybe for Madonna back in the day. Kylie is a lot more likeable though and that translates better to straight people.

Ministers from Health in several countries from the EU are planning to file a motion that in the EU gays should no longer be denied to donate blood. Just like in the U.S gays that have had sex since 1977 are not allowed to donate. Sweden is the only country that allows gay men to donate blood as long as they did not have sex in the last year. I think the whole rule is ridiculous, the only thing that matters is if people are safe, gay or straight. Definitely in these times.

District police of Jerusalem have changed their minds and granted permission for this year’s parade(end of the month) to terminate at the Knesset building. It is the one-year anniversary of the shootings in Tel Aviv at a gay center and getting to the Knesset is a proper way to symbolize what the parade is about. Full equal rights and an end to violence. Totally agree with that.

She is back. PhatGayKid is now lisping though Katy Perry’s “California Gurls.”





Gay news; gay marriage in Mexico City and Washington DC, catholic church and gays make up, anti-gay senator arrested for DUI after leaving gay club

4 03 2010

From today on gay marriage and gay adoption become legal in Mexico City. Mexico City is much more open-minded than the overall very religious country so gays fear a backlash that will take away their rights. And in Washington DC following a Supreme Court ruling Tuesday, gays are allowed to start applying for marriage licenses there as well. Bigots were trying everything to get the Supreme Court to decide different but luckily they did not believe in their hatred.

The catholic church and gays in the Netherlands were in a fight last week and over the weekend, something I blogged about Sunday and before, but the church has backed off a bit. They will no longer seek to bar gays from taking communion. They heavily attacked St. Jan’ church in Den Bosch says it will leave it up to believers to decide whether they are ready to receive communion. Seems like the whole country thought the catholic church was going way too far. Even the very catholic senior citizens at my mom’s work thought gays should get communion and be treated normal.

The dogs that bark the loudest…. ┬áCalifornia state Senator Roy Ashburn, a divorced father of 4 was arrested for DUI after leaving a gay club, Faces, in Sacramento with an unidentified male passenger. Ashburn has voted in favor of Prop8, against Harvey Milk day and against expansion to include sexual orientation as a protected class in the state’s insurance laws. What a fucking hypocrite.
