Gay news, bigot Arizona mayor, gays still banned from donating blood ,shelter in NY vandalized, Iceland gay marriage

12 06 2010

A Yuma, Arizona mayor does not want a repeal of DADT because lacy-drawered, limp-wristed gays can never do what military people have done in the last. He says Lincoln and Washington would have said the same things. Yeah,the world has not changed in over 100 years.

Against science and odds gays are still not allowed to donate blood. After 2 days of hearings a HHS committee voted 9-6 against recommending lifting the FDA ban on gays donating blood. Anyone that has had gay sex since 1977 is not allowed to donate. Retarded.

A shelter in Queens, New York for homeless LBGT Youth was hit with anti-gay vandalism thursday night. One of the walls read “We don’t want gays here.” What a bunch of fucking cowards to do that to kids that are already so vulnerable and often abused. The Ali Forney is such a great initiative because so many LGBT youth have no home after parents disown then and throw them out. Donations are always needed.

Iceland’s parliament voted 49-0!!!  to legalize gay marriage. Wish the U.S would only have 60% of that. Iceland is also the country with the first elected openly gay head of state and a country I would love to visit for its natural beauty. With their economy in the shitter they know that there are way more important things then to keep people from being equal in love.

Celebrities, Green Day, Lance Bass, Collin Farrell, Cyndi Lauper, Lady Gaga

10 04 2010

Lance Bass, GreenDay and Cat Cora will host a gay prom in Mississippi open to everyone but geared towards gay youth that could not bring their dates to prom. Kids like Constance McMillen who could not bring her girlfriend and where the school held a secret prom for the rest of the students that she could not attend. Great that people are doing something about despicable acts like that.

Actor Collin Farrell has been speaking out against anti-gay bullying for a campaign to help youth in Ireland. His gay brother Eamon came home bloody sometimes after school because he was “different” and Collin made a great statement how different in fact is great and it is a disgrace that some kids do not survive their teenage years because of bullying like this. Great guy he is!

Cyndi Lauper’s organization is helping establish Manhattan’s first permanent housing for LGBT youth that are homeless. The True Colors residence will open in Harlem in the Winter of 2011 to help 18-24 year old to get back on their feet. What a fantastic and very important thing.

Lady Gaga loves her fans and that is why she spoke out in favor of a 15-year old student that was wearing a I heart Lady Gay Gay shirt to school that was sent home. She says she is proud of him and that he should just be himself!! Hear, hear





Gay News; Prejean still thinks it’s all about her; homeless gay youth in NY, do you have gay hair?

19 09 2009

What is it with bigots using God’s name to say stupid things and make ridiculous decisions. First there was Arizona Governor Jan Brewer who eliminated state domestic partnerships benefits a year after they were introduced. She says God placed her in the role of Governor and she relies on her faith and prayer to make decisions as a Governor. What about separation of church and state. And then Good Old Carrie Prejean who during a speech to some bigots said that during the Miss USA pageant ‘God had a plan for her’. And ‘God chose her for that moment’ She might have ‘lost the crown but God had a bigger crown for her in heaven.’ Barf, barf. God has more important things to do then care about these two nuts.

Some shocking news  I read yesterday is that there is an epidemic of homeless LGBT youth in New York. Every night gay kids have to hustle for money or a place to sleep. There are 200 beds for homeless LGBT youth to sleep in the country and over 1.000 of them already live in New York. Each year the U.S. has between 575.000 and 1.6 million homeless youth. 20-40% of them identify as LGBT. 26% of youth that comes out gets kicked out of their house and nearly 50% have attempted suicide. That’s truly horrific. There should be more places like the Ali Forney Center in NY.

Apparently hair whorls in men can predict their sexuality!. It seems 4 times as many gay men have their whorl on the back of their head go counter-clockwise as the general public. I have to admit mine does as well!! Then again a while back there was a survey that looked at the ring fingers and the index fingers and said that gays have index fingers that are substantially shorter than their ring fingers. I don’t have that. So what am I, bi??? Ich don’t think so, as Bruno would say.





GLBT News; Staten Island gay bar, homophobia in basketball

20 08 2009

Staten Island will get it’s first gay nightclub in over a decade. Q-SINY’s owners say they started the club after many local LGBT people complained there was nothing for them to do on Staten Island. It is strange that for the half a million people living in Staten Island there was not a place to dance and party for gays. Probably they previously all went to Manhattan with the ferry.

The Ali Forney center, a homeless shelter for LGBT youth will name one of its residences for the fabulous late Bea Arthur(Golden Girls). Bea Arthur was very involved in many youth centers in the U.S but especially those for gay kids. She flew from LA to New York in 2005 to give a one-woman show raising $40.000. She truly was a legend in more was a legend in more ways then one

Just yesterday I wrote about how nice it would be if men from the big sports in the U.S would be as gay-friendly as they are  in Australia or Europe and what happened?? Washington Wizards center Brandon Haywood has reignited a conversation about homophobia in basketball yet again. He made fun of another player’s YouTube clip insinuating the player might be gay or bi and nobody in the basketball world would wanna change in the dressing room next to that guy. Later on he wanted to make clear he was no Tim Hardaway(player who used some really anti-gay speech last year) but clearly he is about the same. Why do these African American players keep being so homophobic. Can you imagine the outrage if a white player would say he was uncomfortable being in the same locker room with a black guy?
