Gay news, trans man beaten at college, anti-gay pastor caught, gay-friendly Slovenian cafe fire-bombed, Happy Pride NYC

27 06 2010

A 23-year -old trans man named Lance Reyna was beaten and robbed in the bathrooms at a college in Houston. A thug put a knife to his neck and called him gay slurs, then he kicked and punched Reyna while he was on the floor and after that he ripped the wallet from his pants and fled. Police are on the look-out and made a list of suspects.

Reverend Tom Brock is a senior pastor at Hope Lutheran Church in Minneapolis and  a loud and outspoken critic of gays. An undercover journalist for gay Lavender Magazine went to a therapy session for men struggling with gay feelings after an anonymous tip and heard the rev, talk about his gay experiences. Later the wrote about this in an article.Some say it is unfair they outed him. I totally disagree, if you are a homophobic pastor or politicians but at the same time have gay sex, you are a hypocrite that should be exposed.

For the third time this year a gay-friendly cafe in the Slovenian capital Ljubljana has been attacked. First this week the place was fire-bombed with Molotov cocktails which  burned the exterior. Friday night the attackers sprayed death to faggots on the walls. Police is extra on the look out but in Eastern Europe as a gay man, police is not your friend.

It is Gay Pride weekend in NY, with the ultimate event, the Pride March today starting at noon. Marshals are army-man Dan Choi, Judy Shephard(mom of Matthew) and high school prom lesbian, Constance McMillan. I love the parade and am bummed I am not in NY this year to see it. Hope everyone enjoys the good weather and has fun!!

Gossip, Ronaldo in favor of gay marriage, Dennis Hopper’s wife want money

1 06 2010

Soccer Star Cristiano Ronaldo told the biggest Portuguese Newspaper that he is in favor of marriage equality. He thinks all citizens need to exact same rights and responsibilities. Good a straight super star like that in a macho world speaks out about this.

Dennis Hopper passed away this weekend after a battle with prostate cancer. He desperately tried to divorce his wife Viktoria in the months before his death but did not succeed. She now wants 25% of his estate and $2500000 life insurance. I hope she gets very little, seems like a gold-digger to me.

Lad Gaga set a new record this week. Her song Alejandro was the 7th top 10 hit of her album The Fame Monster. The previous record was in hands of Michael Jackson with 6. Wow, that is pretty damn special!!

Sarah Ferguson went on Oprah this week to try to undo the damage after her selling out to a journalist. She said she had been drinking and was “in the gutter” when she wanted to give the undercover journalist access to her husband. I always liked her but this is all a bit shady.





Gossip, Brittany Murphy’s husband dead, Fergie in trouble, Ronan Keating divorced, men lie more than women

24 05 2010

Wow, less than a year after Brittany died now hear husband, scenario-writer Simon Monjack was found dead. Brittany’s mom found him unconscious and called 911. Brittany’s death was caused by a combination of a lung infection, iron deficiency and medication use. Very tragic, also for the mom finding both of them. He probably overdosed.

Fergie, not the singer but the Dutchess of York is in some trouble. She offered an undercover journalist access to her ex-husband Prince Andrew for 500.000 Pounds.She wanted 40.000 up front and a provision of 1% of all the contacts she arranged for him. “You take care of me and I will take care of you,” Sarah Ferguson said. Andrew knew nothing about the deal and the paper calls her shameless and greedy. It is pretty shameless but maybe she is in desperate need of money, who knows.

Ronan Keating, singer of the immensely popular boy band Boyzone and his wife of 12 years Yvonne are breaking up. The former model and mother of his 3 young children saucy  text messages from him to a female dancer on his recent tour and he confessed to an affair. He seems like such a nice and good guy, guess you cannot judge a book by its cover.

Not a big surprise, men lie more than women, a recent survey revealed. Not only do they lie on an average day 3 times opposed to the ladies twice, they are also less guilty about it. The thing men lie most about is alcohol usage.
