Gay news, Amsterdam number 1 in freedom, anti-gay christian leader caught with rentboy, Argentina gay marriage?, Evan Lysacek hurt by gay rumors

5 05 2010

Amsterdam is still the most “free” city under the most progressive ones in the world. Johannesburg , Goa, Bangkok, Rio, Vegas, San Francisco, London, Berlin and Amsterdam were tested on 7 pillars, like sexuality, religion, economy and law. Freedom of press and democracy are good here and the legal soft drugs, prostitution and gay marriage are also big plusses. Johannesburg closed the list.

George Alan Rekers is one of America’s most noted anti-gay activist. The religious leader is firmly against gay adoption and in favor of mental help to turn gays straight and is also one of the founders of the anti-gay Focus on the Family. He went to Europe for 10 days and took an escort who is on the gay site rentboy.com to come with him and was caught at the Miami airport. Rekers said he needed the escort to help him carry his luggage because he just had surgery. Haha. Why he was the one carrying all the luggage at the airport and rented a hooker he does not explain. What a fool.

Argentina’s House of Representatives(deputies) has passed a marriage equality bill today with 129-105 votes. Now it needs to get through the Senate where opposition is strong. Hope it will pass there as well though and then off the marriage for Argentinian gays.

Evan Lysacek explained why he reacted so strong against Johnny Weir last week. He was so upset and hurt about Johnny questioning Evan’s sexuality. Please, Lady. Get over it, you are a figure skater in sequined, rhinestoned Vera Wang costumes….





Gossip, Sex&the City spoiler, Addams’ family flop?, Jersey Shore, Liz Taylor marriage

12 04 2010

The second trailer that was released from the new SATC movie looks pretty damn cool. We see the girls going to Abu Dhabi, Liza Minelli performing, Big and Carrie in a slump and the return of Aiden!!  Curious what will happen there, but Carrie needs Big not Aiden imo. I also do not understand at all why they were filming in the fabulous Marrakech, Morocco and then act like it is in Abu Dhabi?? Will I see the movie though, absolutely!!

The newest blockbuster musical on Broadway opened this weekend. The Addams’ family with Nathan Lane and Bebe Neuwirth. Too horrible reviews. Genuinely ghastly, shameful and half-baked is what three reviews said. Kinda surprising with such a great cast.

The Jersey Shore is shooting the new season of their hit-show in Miami. already they are not being let into club etc because their crew it so big half the club needs to be cleared. I have never seen a single episode but every time I see The Situation in the news, I get a little excited. He is sexy, an idiot but hot nonetheless.

Dame Elizabeth Taylor is engaged again for the gazillioned time and might become a bride for the 9th time. The 78-year old is “madly in love” with Jason Winters, a manager from Janet Jackson and rumored to be gay. I dunno, she seems like a good human being but isn’t she too old and even more sickly for this kinda thing.





Clijsters glorious winner in Miami

4 04 2010

Kim won the tournament, nicknamed the 5th slam, by beating Venus Williams in the finals with 6-1 6-2. Surprisingly lopsided. Kim played aggressive and made a lot less errors than in the semis against Justine. She basically controlled the match from start to finish and Venus did not play that good. She had a small injury on her knee, probably from playing too much recently. It was the second time in her career Kim won in Miami and from monday on she will be back in the top 10 of the WTA tour.





Clijsters and V.Williams in Miami finals

2 04 2010

Kim Clijsters won a nerve-wracking and poorly played semis against Justine Henin 6-2 6-7 7-6. They both hit tons of errors but nonetheless made it a spectacle just like in Brisbane at the start of the season where Kim also won the third set tiebreak. Both Belgian girls came from a bad showing at Indian Wells where they both lost early and made up for that in the earlier rounds here, Clijsters beating Azarenka and Justine beating Dementieva and Wozniacki. Henin was taking anti-inflamatories for a backmuscle strain that made it a little harder for her. She is a fighter. Great for Kimmie beating that little fighter though for the second time in a row, hopefully she owns Justine now. Venus has been having a great last few weeks, 2 tournament wins in a row, winning the Billie Jean King cup and now in the finale of the huge tournament in Miami. She did not play Indian Wells, because the Williams sisters think they were not being treated properly there in the past. In the semis venus beat Marion Bartoli from France, 6-3 6-4





Sports, Jankovic wins Indian Wells, Kramer World Champion speed skating

22 03 2010

Not Kim Clijsters, Maria Sharapova or Justine Henin won the crown at the big tournament in Indian Wells the last fortnight, but surprisingly it was Jelena Jankovic. She beat Caroline Wozniacki in the finale with 6-4 6-2. It was the first big win of Jankovic in ages and I am happy for her, always liked her. Sharapova is injured and Clijsters and Henin desperately need more match rhythm, that combined with the absence of the Williams’ sisters makes this not so likely to be repeated by Jankovic in Miami this week.

At the last tournament on the speed skating calendar in a sold out stadium in Heerenveen, the Netherlands(the only place to get a full stadium in a tournament after the Olympics) Sven Kramer became World Champion Allround. This is a two-day tournament over 4 distances. Jonathan Kuck from the U.S was the big surprise at number 2, number 3 was Havard Bokko. With the ladies Martina Sablikova from the Czech Republic was the best, before Canada’s Kristina Groves and dutch Ireen Wust was number 3.





GLBT News; sex change tax- deductible, cops abuse gay witness, Dolores Park in SF closes for 2 years

4 02 2010

A sex change will be tax-deductible. The tax court decided that treatment for gender identity disorder is real medical care instead of cosmetic care. Surgery and hormone therapy can be written off now. Great decision and only fair.

Cops in Miami Beach have harassed a gay man who witnesses them abusing a suspect. Luckily for him he was on the phone with 911 when the cops came at him, hurling anti-gay words. They later on grabbed his phone and said: ” We know what you are doing, we are sick of all the fags here. Then they pushed him on the ground and tied his hands while hurling more insults. The cops are still on duty while this is investigated. Cops are your best friend!!

The famous Dolores Park in San Francisco is going to be closed for 2 years while getting a $12 mil renovation starting in august. The park is close to the Castro and nicknamed the gay beach(even though there is no sea there) Many gay folks lay there during the warm summer days, me included a few year back. Always liked it there.





GLBT news

8 08 2009

Gay Miami news anchor Charles Perez(who had his own nationally syndicated talk-show years ago) has been fired after filing a discrimination complaint. He was demoted to the weekend slot because he was becoming too “gay” for mainstream. He was smiling too much and giggling with his co-anchors like girlfriend. This happened a week after an ex of Perez forwarded an email to his bosses where Perez told his shrink he had gender identity issues. Perez thinks that is the reason he got demoted and filed the complaint. His boss is a gay man himself so i dunno what to believe here.

British professional boxer Rob Newbiggin says he was born intersexed and plans to transition to a woman and after that fight as woman professionally. He says he has high levels of oestrogen in his body but has more man characteristics. He started boxing because his step-dad wanted him to butch up. Of course it is fine that he wants to become a woman, but I think it would be unfair if he would actually compete at the ladies, he really really looks like a big manly man. This is totally different from tennis player Sarah Gronert who plays with the ladies but also really looks like a woman.
