Gay news,U.S district court thinks DOMA unconstitutional, HIV vaccine breakthrough, U.K supreme court/asylum, Helsinki Gay Pride arrests

9 07 2010

A U.S district court in Boston has ruled that section 3 of DOMA is unconstitutional. It is an enormous victory for same-sex marriage. In both Commonwealth of Massachusetts vs Health and Human Services as well as Gill vs Office of Personnel Management, Judge Tauro thinks DOMA violates equal protection principles. Great news!!

U.S government scientists have discovered 3 powerful antibodies against the HIV virus. The strongest neutralizes 91% of all cells!! More than any before. The cells were found in an African-American gay man who had the cells naturally. Researchers screened 25 million of his cells to find 12 that produced antibodies. Unfortunately it will be years before this can be used on people, still very good progress.

The U.K Supreme Court has decided that gay couple who fear retribution in their home countries have a right for asylum in the U.K. The decision involved 2 men from Iraq and 1 from Cameroon. Lord Hope said that to compel a homosexual person to deny their sexuality is to deny them a fundamental right to be who he is. Well said. Lord Roger said that just as male heteros are free to enjoy rugby, beer and talking about woman with their male friends ,gays should be allowed to listen to Kylie ,drink exotic coloured cocktail and talk about boys with their girlfriends. A little ridiculously stereotypical but I guess he meant good.

Last weekend it was Helsinki Gay Pride. Three men decided to ruin the fun and used pepper spray and smoke bombs. Over 30 people were hit by it and also some children. Nobody was injured but the men have been charged with a hate crime and Finnish president Tarja Halonen denounced the attack.

Gay news,the porn star and the senator, Eminem in favor of gay marriage, Iceland rebellious to God, Puerto Rico hate crimes

17 06 2010

Gay twinky porn star and escort Brandon Wilde, 20, had a dinner date with 45-year-old openly gay Republican Senator Paul Koering from Minnesota. Koering gave an interview to a porn blog after Wilde made the news of their date public on Twitter saying he did not think Wilde was making the right choices but that he was a nice guy nonetheless. It only stayed with a dinner and no sex but according to Wilde, Koering wanted more. Koeing has voted against gay marriage(self-hate!!), but told Wilde he wanted to become president and make gay marriage legal in Minnesota. Later on he denied saying that. Going on a date with a young porn star and hoping he won’t talk about certain things is a little naive Mr Koering. I bet Wilde would be the cutest “first lady” ever. I always wanted to become that though!

I always thought (f)Eminem was not a real gay hater like his music implies. There he says he hates fags etc but at the same time he was best buddies with Lady Elton(who seems to like the fake bigots). In a recent interview with the NYT he says he is fine with gay marriage and thinks gays that love another should have the same right to be miserable as straight couples. And he knows what he is talking about!!

According to “ex-gay” minister James Hartline Iceland will be in trouble. After the recent volcano eruption that “almost destroyed the nation according to him” they know voted 49-0 for gay marriage and that combined with having a “satanic” lesbian Prime Minister means they are rebellious and self-destructing. Hartline thinks he is a prophet, I think SHE is crazy.

After the recent brutal hate crimes in Puerto Rico, the government there has empaneled a special investigative committee to collect statistics and end the violence there. In 2002 there was a legislation establishing hasher penalties for crimes based on gender identity or sexual preference but so far nothing was done. At least this is a step in the right direction.





Gay news, Denmark gay adoption, Pride cancelled in Lithuania, hate crime charges dismissed in Brooklyn murder, drag queen dance-off

7 05 2010

I am surprised in a country like Denmark this was not law before but since this week the parliament passed a vote giving gay couples equal adoption rights. Until now they could only adopt individually or adopt the children of the one of the partners as step-children. Great news

Not so great is that in Lithuania, Gay Baltic Pride was banned. The court in the capital of Vilnius decided that. The court ruled that the parade could lead to public disturbances and say they can’t guarantee the safety of the participants. Nice excuse for not wanting it to happen.

This summer  in Brooklyn about a hate crime against Jose Suzuchanay and his brother. The two straight Ecuadorian men were walking arm in arm on the street. Jose was drunk and his brother was helping him. Two thugs thought they were gay and started screaming anti-gay slurs and anti-hispanic slurs to them and eventually beat Jose to death. Hakim Scott and Keith Phoenix were “only” found guilty of manslaughter and attempted assault. Pretty unbelievable to me.

And to finish of the news, something to make you smile. It is a dance-off between to Drag Queen in Sydney. And the girls can dance!!





Gay news; young republicans/gay marriage, Johnny Weir, Ewan McGregor great guy, 2 gay men attacked in Austin, Texas

22 02 2010

Young gay republicans that were polled at the convention CPAC and asked what issues were most important to them only want perfect thought gay marriage was important. Reducing size of federal government with 52% and reducing government spending with 33% were top. Good sign for the future.

People reading this blog love to hear about figure skater Johnny Weir considering the 488 people last week who viewed my blog about him but other people in the media keep making fun of him and insulting him. Quebec sportscasters Mailhot and Goldberg compared him to transgender Caster Semeya and though the needed to a gender test and maybe compete with the women. And that people are afraid that all boys that start figure skating will end up as Johnny. What a couple of fucktards.

Two gay man wearing their all-gay softball team jerseys from the field to their homes, were beaten down and called slurs last friday night in Austin, Texas. The victims fought back something that surprised to attackers but they ended up with bruises anyway. Another day, another hate crime. Apparently last year there were also 2 attacks in the most liberal city of Texas.

Ewan McGregor showed once more how it is done. On Good Morning America George Stephanopulos asked what the kiss was all about after producers started snickering when they showed a clip of McGregor and Jim Carrey kissing. McGregor said it was sad that in this time and age people were still laughing about a kiss.When Stephanopoulos said it was “making out,” McGregor said it was just a kiss. Kudos to him.





Gay News, Carrie Prejean sex-tape, gays thrown out of NY cap, gay candidate smeared as child molester

5 11 2009

Anti-gay bitch Carrie Prejean, the new darling of the christian right whom God was speaking to directly according to many during her famous pageant speech, has a sex tape out so dirty and raunchy TMZ did not wanna publish it on their website!! hahahaha!! During her multi-million dollar lawsuit against  Miss California USA they showed her parts of the XXX-rated tape and she immediately walked away with basically nothing. $100.000 dollar which is a fraction of her lawyers costs. What a wholesome christian girl. What’s next, a Maggie Gallagher sex-tape??, haha.

A gay couple that was hugging in the back of a taxi was thrown of out the taxi in New York by their driver Medhat Mohammed(surprise, surprise) after only to blocks. According to him hugging was not allowed in his taxi and they had to get out. Obviously it has nothing to do with the hugging itself, but with the fact that it where 2 men hugging. The Taxi and Limousine Commission is looking into it to see if it was service refusal. While I think hugging is fine, even if to people are doing a lot more the taxi driver first has to warn them and ask to stop before just throwing them out.

An openly gay Republican candidate for the Annapolis City council was being smeared as a child molester by a group called ” Friends and supporters of Black Annapolis. It also says: ” Keep our sister Classie Hoyle in, keep our African-American Power. Keep us from Sin and Sexual Assault and keep our children safe.” It is being investigates as a hate crime.

 





Gay news; Levi naked?, Prop 8, gay teen beaten up

18 08 2009

Prop 8’s repeal will most likely not be  until 2012.  Lots of groups and papers like Equality California and the L.A. Times think 2010 will be too early. Forging alliances with minority groups, lining up financial support and getting a better campaign staff then this year takes time they say. While I agree faults have been made before I think people’s opinions have changed already since the prop 8 election with other states already having gay marriage. Why wait until 2012 when the support probably will be there already in 2010. Who knows what might happen after that. Maybe another war or something that changes people’s views again to the more conservative side.

A 15- year old boy from Michigan was assaulted last week and left with bruises, skull fractures and a broken lip. He told his parents and friends a while back that he is gay and 2 older teens apparently thought they needed to attack him. He is a brave guy and said afterwards they did not break his spirit. The case is being treated like a hate crime. Hope those little brats will end up in jail for a while.

The major of Anchorage, Alaska has vetoed a ban against discrimination based on sexual orientation, saying it is unclear such a thing exist!!. The measure was the subject of intense public interest and debate all summer. The Anchorage Assembly can override the veto of Republican Sullivan with 8 votes. 7 voted in favor of the ban in the first place. What an idiot, of course it exists.

It did not take long before Levi Johnston was made on offer after he said last week he would pose naked for the right amount of money. Nude magazine Unzipped ,who previously paid former lover of Portland’s major Adams a nice amount of cash is  willing to do the same for Levi. He gets a free interview with it as well in the nation’s most sold nude men’s magazine. I highly doubt he will do it, but maybe he should. His 5 minutes of fame will be up anytime soon.





Gay News; another hate crime during Outgames, bigots in Washington and more

30 07 2009

Another hate crime happened in the normally so easy-going Denmark during the Outgames. After the attack on three men last weekend, now a few explosive devices were thrown at athletes during the track& field events. Nobody got seriously injured and it was more extreme fireworks then real bombs, but in any event things like this really should not be happening at all. The cops handled it well though in finding and arresting the 31-year old idiot.

Oh the poor bigots that signed the petition against domestic partnerships in Washington do not wanna have their names be made public fearing a public backlash. They are suing the state to prevent publication. Hope they lose, if you wanna be a hater you have to stand up for it. People are allowed to know who spends money and energy against gays so they can stop giving to them.

Caroline Leto and Venera Magazzu from Florida are a lesbian couple and have been domestic partners since 1996. so far nothing special. But these ladies have met in 1939 and are a couple for over 70!! years. They still bicker and love each other like any other couple. The picture of them made me smile and believe in getting older, gay and being happily coupled a bit more.
