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.”

Pedro

24 01 2010

This weekend I watched the movie Pedro about openly HIV-positive and gay icon Pedro Zamora. He captured millions of hearts all over America during his time in MTV’s The Real World San Francisco back in 1994. The movie is from the same screenwriter as Milk, Dustin Lance Black, so destined to be great and it is. I do not often cry during movies but this was one of those movies. It is so inspirational, emotional and well acted. As a bonus the DVD also has 3 episodes from the Real World to give people like me who had not seen the series(only saw Real World Hawaii with the crazy drunk girl) an idea of how it was. The actors are all a little prettier, but definitely look a lot like the real people in the series. I think this movie is a must-see for every one in the gay community and it would not hurt straight people to see it as well.





Funny parody;masculine costumes for your effeminate son

29 10 2009

I took this from Jesse Archer’s website but I have seen the clip on many blogs. It’s from the Onion News Network where they interview the author of the book; “Actually he’s a boy” and she gives tips on how to dress you girly son because you don’t want the little lady boy sneaking out of his own as a ballerina. And don’t use a male profession that’s co-opted by the gay community to avoid the kid looking like a stripper, haha. Robots are great for little prancers!!! Pretty damn funny! All those kids are like me as a boy.

Gay news; Stephen Gately funeral, march for gay bashing victim gets counter-protest, gays calling people homophobes that are not

18 10 2009

Yesterday was the very emotional funeral of gay Boyzone member Stephen Gately in Dublin. Many celebrities came to pay their respect or left messages of condolences. This was a truly loved individual. His former band member, with Ronan Keating, carried his coffin and held a vigil the night before. Last week a bitch from the Daily Mail used the rumors surrounding his death to slam the gay lifestyle, something that had ultimately nothing to do with his death. And even if it had been drugs, how many straight pop stars haven’t died of excess?? The thing that must be excruciatingly hard for his husband though, is knowing he had sex with another man while Gately died.

Yesterday was a march and rally in support of gay bashing victim Jack Price. Around 300 people came to Queens to show their support and protest against gay bashing. Surprisingly enough there were also some counter-protesters screaming for the release of the gay basher( unbelievable). Among the group of thugs was also the Leviticus tattoo guy I reported about earlier. According to locals this is the same group that caused the neighborhood to go downhill in the last few years. 

Some people in the gay community should be a little less quick with calling straight allies homophobic and screaming for their apology. This weekend “Girls Gone Wild” founder Joe Francis called a doorman a fag after being denied at a club. Of course this is stupid and juvenile but this is the same man who walked in the National Equality March last week so clearly no homophobe. And from Britain comes an even better example of ridiculousness. Gay icon Dannii Minogue and sister of THE gay icon Kylie told a singer who himself admitted he was bi-sexual that he could have left the lyrics to “And I’m telling you” to that of someone singing to a man. Why in the hell is that bad?? Apparently many people think she should not have brought up his sexuality but to say she is homophobic is just stupid.
