School for boys who want to be girls

9 07 2010

New York has its own Vera’s finishing school for boys who want to be girls. Jesse Archer went over there and transformed into Mildred Fierce. For a boy who used to want to be a girl until he was 8(played with My Little Pony’s etc), I have surprisingly enough never been in drag. I think I will probably look like Jesse, not too pretty.

GLBT News, Ru Paul’s gets another show, Tucker Carlson calls Rachel Maddow a man, transgender prison in Italy

13 01 2010

Ru Paul will get another show on Logo called Ru Paul’s Drag U. On this show Ru and other drag queens apply fairy godmother dust to the lives and looks of people who need a little help. Sounds like fun!!!

Many gay media outlets are pissed off at Fox News’s Tucker Carlson’s new website in which he say he has the gift of wisdom(ha!) but also that he would rather have another gift like the untold riches of Little Wayne or be the sexiest man alive like Rachel Maddow. I think that is just hilarious and gay blogs bitching that it is because Rachel is a lesbian should just calm down and accept a funny joke( she does kinda look like a guy, even though I do like her). A funny joke is a funny joke!

A previously empty female prison in Pozzale, Italy will be transformed into a prison-house for transgender inmates. It will house 30 of the believed 60 transsexual inmates Italy has. Most of the women have only drug-related or prostution sentences and would be butt of jokes or aggression in normal prisons. A great idea!





gay news; Ru Paul’s drag race, Hurricanes

23 08 2009

One of my favorite tv-shows, Ru Paul’s drag race is coming to the Netherlands. I watched all the American episodes religiously but can’t wait to see it here on TV as well. Ongina, Chanel and Nina Flowers were my favorites. We actually had a drag show on TV here over 10 years ago but it wasn’t nearly as much fun as the American version. A great blend of Project Runway, America’s Next Top model and drag-queen bitchiness. 

The evangelical church in the U.S. has lifted it’s ban on sexually active gays and lesbians serving as ministers. 68% of the 1000 members of the national assembly agreed with the lifting of the ban. That is some great news for some but doom for others. According to John Piper, pastor of the Bethlehem baptist church blamed the tornado that hit Minneapolis last week on the assembly even talking about allowing gays. We gays sure are powerful with nature, blamed for Katrina, tsunami and now this.
