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.”

Aravene Rezai wins big tournament of Madrid

17 05 2010

It was not Venus or Serena Williams, Justine Henin, Jelena Jankovic or one of the Russian ladies. No it was a big surprise in Spain with muslim french girl Rezai winning. She was not even in the top 20 before the tournament started and even though she can play very well and beat almost anyone on a good day during a clay tournament, defeating Williams, Henin and Jankovic all in 1 week is pretty amazing. Serena played the longest match of her entire career!!! against Vera Duchevina in round 2 winning 6-7 7-6 7-6, only to lose the next round against Nadia Petrova. Venus proved in the final that even though her form is pretty decent that on clay she is just not that dangerous. Can Rezai make her country people proud by winning Roland Garros. I doubt it and still go with Justine Henin.





Sport, Rio host of 2016 Olympics and Sharapova back on track

3 10 2009

Rio de Janeiro as a host for the Olympics 2016 was a great pick in my opinion. It was never before in South America, the people are crazy about sports and most of all it was the best of the candidates. Madrid only made it to the final 2 because of the plea from former IOC head Antonio Samaranch and Chicago was never a great candidate to begin with. The people from Chicago were not as much behind it as in Madrid or Rio and the U.S. had troubles hosting the Olympics in the past. Both Atlanta and Salt Lake City had their issues and were not a huge success. And Obama and Oprah Winfrey standing behind Chicago did not help either. Besides what does Oprah have to do with sport, she does not strike me as the athletic type. That she influenced who became President of the U.S. was bad enough as it is. The rest of the world luckily does not care much about what Oprah thinks.

Maria Sharapova won the big tournament in Tokyo beating Jelena Jankovic by retirement. A not so nice ending to a great week for her. Sharapova did not have to beat many top players herself to win her first tournament since her injury, but most of them were there anyway. Serena and Kim were the only top players not there in Japan. This week Sharapova showed back her old serve to great success. To help her shoulder she tried a new serving technique for a few months but with a lot of double faults and very little aces her serve became more of a liability then a weapon. Good decision to go back to the old serve. Slowly but steady 2010 seems to become a great and exciting season.
