Gay news, Malawi couple broken up, GENDA suffers defeat in NY senate, Ted Haggard

9 06 2010

Just 3 weeks after being pardoned by their president one part of the Malawi couple, Steven, previously sentenced to 14 years in jail is engaged to a woman named Dorothy(what’s in a name) He says they never even had sex and it was all a miscommunication. The other one,  Chimbalanga,  says he is still gay and is looking for another boyfriend. I can totally understand Steven trying life with a woman no, it beats years in prison. Chimbalanga is a total hero though for just being himself.

The gender-identity non-discrimination bill known as GENDA, has suffered a nasty and maybe surprising defeat in NY senate committee with 12-11. All Republicans and that asshole Ruben Diaz voted against it. It would prohibit discrimination based on gender identity but conservatives acted like it was just a chance for men to get in women’s bathroom facilities. What a shame, def for New York.

Former mega church pastor Ted Haggard, the one of the gay and meth scandal) has started a new church in Colorado Springs with his wife Gayle. It is all-inclusive even for sinners that are gratefully redeemed. He talked to Joy Behar(love my Joy) about it who made it very clear to him being gay is not a sin. 160 people showed up for his church, at least 1 of them was gay. Or make that 2 with Haggard himself.

Gay news, Jesse Helms, NY Gender Nondiscrimination Law, U.K politican outed/resigns, Kylie’s clip denied for lesbian kiss

31 05 2010

Recent records show that Jesse Helms, the late senator who was a very active anti-gay politician, had called the FBI because he got death-threats from gays back in the day. It is not surprising gays wanted to hurt him. He was against aids funding back in the 80’s saying it was caused by disgusting human behavior , fought against the civil rights of gays and voted against any pro-gay law. Nothing ever happened to him though, but I hope it did cost him some sleepless nights back when he was alive, he ruined many people’s lives.

The chances of the Gender Expression Nondiscrimination Act becoming Law in Ny got a mayor boost this week. They have 32 senators on board now, enough to get a majority. It would add gender identity to the human rights law that protects people against discrimination in employment, credit, housing. About time, it is hard enough to have gender issues as it is to have to worry about housing and jobs.

Britain’s Treasury Minister David Laws was one of the stars of the new coalition but has now become its first casualty. He funneled government money to his boyfriend by getting him a room he rented and was not out as gay. The  self-made millionaire and Liberal Democrat( surprise, not a conservative) is still known by colleagues as an honourable man who not went into politics for financial gain. He does not seem that honourable to me.

MTV Asia is not gonna show the new clip of Kylie Minogue, called “All the lovers” because it features a lesbian kiss. All the nudity in it is fine but 2 girls kissing… Pretty pathetic. A short preview of the clip.
