Gay news, Amsterdam number 1 in freedom, anti-gay christian leader caught with rentboy, Argentina gay marriage?, Evan Lysacek hurt by gay rumors

5 05 2010

Amsterdam is still the most “free” city under the most progressive ones in the world. Johannesburg , Goa, Bangkok, Rio, Vegas, San Francisco, London, Berlin and Amsterdam were tested on 7 pillars, like sexuality, religion, economy and law. Freedom of press and democracy are good here and the legal soft drugs, prostitution and gay marriage are also big plusses. Johannesburg closed the list.

George Alan Rekers is one of America’s most noted anti-gay activist. The religious leader is firmly against gay adoption and in favor of mental help to turn gays straight and is also one of the founders of the anti-gay Focus on the Family. He went to Europe for 10 days and took an escort who is on the gay site rentboy.com to come with him and was caught at the Miami airport. Rekers said he needed the escort to help him carry his luggage because he just had surgery. Haha. Why he was the one carrying all the luggage at the airport and rented a hooker he does not explain. What a fool.

Argentina’s House of Representatives(deputies) has passed a marriage equality bill today with 129-105 votes. Now it needs to get through the Senate where opposition is strong. Hope it will pass there as well though and then off the marriage for Argentinian gays.

Evan Lysacek explained why he reacted so strong against Johnny Weir last week. He was so upset and hurt about Johnny questioning Evan’s sexuality. Please, Lady. Get over it, you are a figure skater in sequined, rhinestoned Vera Wang costumes….





Johnny Weir does Lady Gaga

30 04 2010

2 of my favorite thing merged together. After doing Poker Face last year, last month in St Petersburg Johnny did Bad Romance.





Gay news, Laura Bush, lesbian not in yearbook, Johnny Weir/Lysacek, hate in NC

29 04 2010

In her upcoming memoir Laura Bush tells that she told her husband not to make gay marriage an issue in the 2004 elections because of all the gay friends and friends with gay kids they have. Too bad he did not listen to her!

A Mississippi high school is refusing to not only put lesbian Ceara Sturgis pic in the yearbook because she was wearing a tux(something I blogged about before) but now just removed her from the yearbook all together. The fact that she went there for 12 years and was a top student apparently is not important for the school. Being a lesbian is a way bigger deal apparently.

As you may remember Johnny Weir was not invited for the U.S Stars on Ice tour because he was not family friendly enough. Now his nemesis Evan Lysacek slams Johnny for whining and says he just was not good enough. Well I saw the line-up and there are other people in there that did not win 3 nationals or a bronze medal so Lysacek’s comment is bullshit. Besides not Johnny made an issue about not participating but the media did. Johnny was at Wendy Williams show and reacted back to this thing though a little less subdued, he called Lysacek is a slore(slut/whore).

Parents in Booneville, North Carolina proved to be huge bigots after hearing that 2 gay kids will attend a school prom together. They will hold a separate prom to make sure their straight kids will not be exposed to “gayness.” In this time and age??





Gay news; Sven Kramer pro-gay, Chad Hedrick at Pat Robertson’s showShocker,not!!! Roy Asburn, Sean Hayes come out of the closet, Johnny Weir denied skating in Stars on Ice, school bans prom because of lesbian

12 03 2010

I was sick for a few days so did not blog about these things so some of it might be old news for you guys.

Two speed skaters showed two different sides of the gay spectrum this week. Dutch Sven Kramer spoke out in defense of his teammate lesbian Ireen Wust and said being gay was normal and does not define who a person is at all. American Chad Hedrick was at evil anti-gay Pat Robertson’s 700 club yesterday. Yuck!!!

Roy Ashburn, state senator from California, came out of the closet this week after being arrested outside of a gay club. Something I talked about last week. He admitted to being gay and told he had a lot of trouble with admitting that. He also said he will continue to vote against gay rights and only does that because the people in his district want him too. What a self-hating idiot.

Sean Hayes, aka Jack McFarland, came out of the closet officially this weekend as well to Advocate magazine. He is also kinda pissed for the Advocate pressuring him in the past to come out because he said he was never in. He also thinks he has done enough for the gay community anyway by playing the flamboyant Jack. I understand what he says but also do not understand why he did not officially come out before and all of a sudden now he does.

Johnny Weir was deemed not family friendly enough aka, too gay for the sponsors of Stars on Ice. Ridiculous for someone who is putting his brother through college and supports his family financially because his dad has disability. He obviously is very close with his family, so this reason is ridiculous.

A high school in Fulton, Mississippi cancelled the school prom because lesbian student Constance McMillan was gonna bring her girlfriend. They first tried to ban her from bringing her girlfriend or wear a tuxedo and after they figured out they did not have the right for that, they just banned the whole prom. Making the girl the scapegoat for other students. Very evil.





Olympics unfortunately over

1 03 2010

It were overall mediocre games with extreme sad lows like the death of the Georgian Luger, the death of Joanne Rochette’s mom and the at times very bad circumstances(trouble with the ice at the speed skating, conditions on the ski slopes) and highs with dutch golden medals, extremely tight/nerve-wracking races and Canada winning a record amount of golden medals. The overall medal count and deciding who the winner is, proves to be difficult. What is more important, the amount of medals overall or the most gold??. My bf and I decided to be fair, the gold was 5 points, silver 3 and bronze 1. That makes Canada the winner, before the U.S and Germany in third.  Norway is a strong number 4 and then there is a big gap. Holland is in 10th, pretty good. My personal highlight were the gold of Mark Tuitert, Ireen Wust and the great performances of the German biathlon girls. Biggest disappointment the disqualification of Sven Kramer at the 10k and the miscommunications at the team relay that cost a sure gold.





Olympics, wednesday and thursday

26 02 2010

Wednesday was not such a good day for the speed skating but it was known that the 5k would be the weakest distance fo the dutch ladies. Jorien Voorhuis ended in 10th place and Elma de Vries was number 11. The winner was the best woman for years on this distance, Martina Sablikova. Germany’s Stephanie Beckert was 2 but the difference between 1/2 was very small. Maybe next year it will be Beckert at number 1. She has made huge progress in the last 2 years. Canada’s Clara Hughes won the bronze at her 5th Olympics(summer as a bicyclist included) Today will be the start of the men’s and women’s pursuit. The dutch men are clear favorites with probably Korea and Norway as the numbers 2 and 3. U.S has a small chance for a medal. The dutch ladies had a horrible draw and have to face Germany first and title favorite Canada next if they beat Germany. I think Canada will win, Russia will be 2 and Germany or the Netherlands will end with the bronze.

With the skiing there has been a lot of talk between the catfight of American’s Lindsey Vonn and Julia Mancuso. Mancuso had complained about Vonn getting almost all media attention and then Vonn fell at the Giant Slalom which resulted in Mancuso having to ski again, after already having completed half of the track and she lost a sure medal in that race. Still I am team Vonn, she seems nicer.

Johnny weir had the perfect comeback after people asked him what he though about the reporters that said boys will not be allowed to figure skate because parents are afraid they will turn into Johnny. He thinks kids should only be so lucky as to turn into him. I totally agree with him. He is a two-time Olympian, World Championships medal winner, U.S champion and has his own reality show on the Sundance Channel. Nothing wrong with that.





Gay News; Elton John think Jesus was gay, Giro d’Italia might get male kissers, Johnny Weir robbed?

19 02 2010

Elton John might have gotten himself in trouble with some of his christian fans by saying that Jesus was a passionate and very intelligent gay man. He said this to American magazine Parade. Who knows if he was or not. Could be, could be not.

The second most famous biking race, the Giro d’Italia always has two women kissing the winner at the ceremony after a race. Members of the Green Left Party in Amsterdam are lobbying for 2 gay men to give the kiss on the Amsterdam leg of the race. Even though I think it would be fun to watch I also think it is a ridiculous idea.

According to almost everyone, Johnny Weir was robbed at yesterday’s free skate during the Olympics. Even though he was one of the only men to have skated flawless he ended in 6th place. That should at least have been 2 places higher. A medal was pushing it but if some people would have made a mistake more he would have gotten his medal. I bet at least some of the judges give him less because he is so flamboyant and that means he would never win anything big. The crowd booed his score and he said the crowd appreciation means more to him than the judging. Evil queen Evan Lysacek won gold, to many undeserved, by beating out Plushenko.





(Gossip) news; Cheryl/Ashley Cole heading for divorce, Johnny Weir/Evan Lysacek, Hayden Panettierre boob job, Paula Deen on American Idol

17 02 2010

Cheryl Cole, singer of Girls Aloud, and her soccer star husband Ashley are heading for divorce. Last year there were already rumors that he was cheating on her and this week the news leaked out that he send naked pics of himself to other women. He says someone else did it but the other Girls loud singers as well as Cheryl’s mother think they should divorce. They are one the THE glamour couples in Britain and this is their Tiger Woods’ affair. I saw them once eating in the Blue Elephant restaurant in London and she is one of the prettiest women I have ever seen.

It was quite the spectacle yesterday at the men’s short program figure skating but for me it was all about Johnny Weir. Some other guys might have better technical elements but no one can put on a show like Johnny. He wore an outfit with self-described “man cleavage and pink ruffle” with a bit of lace and is just himself on the ice unlike a guy like Evan Lysacek who over-acts to be pursued as masculine. The two of them are arch-nemises since their early teens and could not be more different. Johnny ended 6th and will be in the final group at the long programme and said to be looking out of the corner of his mascara to see who would win on thursday, likely between Lysacek and extremely talented and extremely ugly Plushenko. He might prepare the same for the event as he did on Tuesday, being naked watching The Real Housewives!

Actress Hayden Panettiere(Heroes) got a boob job recently and went from an A-cup to a C. She hopes to get more grown-up roles now than only playing cheer leaders. I think it is a good thing, her body used to look like that of a 12-year old gymnast, not pretty.

My favorite cook and TV personality Paula Deen will be on American Idol as a guest judge. While I kinda understand that some people think she knows nothing about singing and should not be a judge I disagree about the last part. She is funny and a down-to-earth Southern Belle, she knows exactly what America wants and became an Idol herself. Solely singing qualities does not make you a star.





Gay sports news, Johnny Weir and Tim Tebow

19 01 2010

Johnny Weir, the super flamboyant gay figure skater from the U.S qualified this weekend in Spokane for the Olympics by ending third in the trials. With his love for Lady Gaga, extremely girly outfits and just by being himself he is a true crowd favorite. Some critics say he is too feminine for the sport but come on this is figure skating, not American football. He has his own reality show on the Sundance channel that started yesterday.

Tim Tebow, the University of Florida quarterback who is known for Bible verses painted under his eyes, has shot a commercial for the anti-gay Christian Group Focus on the Family set to air during the Super Bowl together with his mom.  The commercial is likely not anti-gay but anti-abortion. Focus on the Family has spent $727 thousand to ban same-sex marriage and have been outspoken against many gay issues. The guy is hot but unfortunately a bigot.





Gay news; Johnny Weir; gay marriage saves straight marriage, anti-gay Rome

5 09 2009

Openly gay figure skater Johnny Weir, a medal winner at the World Championships last year and a big contender to be part of the American team for the Olympics this year had this to say about suggestions to “butch up” men’s figure skating. He thinks it’s a ridiculous idea because he loves the glittery costumes, getting his hair and make-up done and his prettiness. Hard to argue with that!! haha

You constantly hear anti-gay marriage supporters saying that gay marriage destroys their straight marriage. Well, after 5 years of legalized gay marriage in Massachusetts, the state’s divorce rates have plummeted to pre World War 2 numbers. And they have the lowest divorce rate in the country. So basically gay marriage saves opposite marriage!!

Anti-gay violence has increased in Rome a lot in recent months. This week escalating in the throwing of 2 bomb letters in a bar in the gay neighborhood of Rome. Several people were injured and one had to be taken to the hospital. Many people including the mayor of Rome are worried about this trend. One former PM goes as far as to say Rome is not a safe city for gay people anymore. Such a pity of a great city. I have to say that I did not notice anything anti-gay about Rome while I was there with my boyfriend but maybe the climate has changed in a few years.
