Gay News,Hawaii Gov. compares gay marriage to incest, Top Chef judge on Gay Pride float, separate showers if DADT is repealed?

14 07 2010

Linda Lingle, the Governor of Hawaii, who vetoed the civil unions bill of the state last week said on air that if gay marriage is a civil right than close relatives should also be able to get married, because that could be seen as a civil right as well. Lingle said ” First cousins could not get married, or a brother and sister and that sort of thing.” First off comparing gay marriage to incest is super insulting, second first cousins CAN actually get married in Hawaii. What a stupid bitch.

Top Chef Judge Tom Colicchio can be seen on a bear float during LA Gay Pride 2011. He told Andy Cohen during Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live” that he was insulted that no one in the bear community had asked him to be on a float during this years Gay Pride. After the show Bravo got flushed with phone calls and “A Bear’s Life Magazine” set it up. Because of his stocky build Colicchio, who is married with kids,  has been an icon in the bear community for quite sometime. Even though his restaurants have underwhelmed me often, this is pretty cool.

Friday it was made clear that if DADT will be repealed there might be some changes in the living situation of military people. The Pentagon is now heavily denying wanting separate barracks and showers after heavy criticism from the gay community and says there is only talk about maybe some extra shower curtains. Fuck that, how can a president whose father has been subjected to segregation even consider some of these things. Very repulsive.

The U.K. AIDS hospice made famous back in the 80’s by the visit of Princess Diana will be torn down. In 1989 the Princess of Wales was one of the first famous people to touch and hug people living with HIV/AIDS. Incredibly important in breaking the taboos.

Gay news, Hawaii civil unions, 22% U.S do not want gay supreme court member, Lance Bass dates Queer Eye, same-sex citizen sponsorship

1 05 2010

By a vote with 31-20, the Hawaii House approved of a civil unions bill after a motion by House Majority Leader Blake Oshiro. It already passed the Senate in January with 18-7. Gov, Linda Lingle has 45 days to decide if she wants to veto. Religious groups were shocked and unprepared to do any lobbying and are pissed, haha!!

22% of U.S citizens would see it as a strong negative if the next Supreme Court member would be gay. With senior citizens it is even 34(damn oldies!) With Republican it is 44 and White Evangelicals 51.

N’Syncer Lance Bass has dated many hot guys since coming out of the closet, most not famous but others like Reichen Lehmkuhl were a bit. Now he has another celebrity in his hands though, Kyan Douglas, aka the Grooming Guy from “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.” Lancy picks them well.

The new immigration plan from Capitol Hill includes a provision that would allow U.S citizens and legal residents to sponsor their same-sex partners for residency. It will eliminate discrimination and is a great step forwards and it was about time.It is ridiculous that straight people who make 10 times less than my bf and pay 10 times less taxes are able to sponsor their spouse and we are not.
