Gay News,Hawaii Gov. compares gay marriage to incest, Top Chef judge on Gay Pride float, separate showers if DADT is repealed?

14 07 2010

Linda Lingle, the Governor of Hawaii, who vetoed the civil unions bill of the state last week said on air that if gay marriage is a civil right than close relatives should also be able to get married, because that could be seen as a civil right as well. Lingle said ” First cousins could not get married, or a brother and sister and that sort of thing.” First off comparing gay marriage to incest is super insulting, second first cousins CAN actually get married in Hawaii. What a stupid bitch.

Top Chef Judge Tom Colicchio can be seen on a bear float during LA Gay Pride 2011. He told Andy Cohen during Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live” that he was insulted that no one in the bear community had asked him to be on a float during this years Gay Pride. After the show Bravo got flushed with phone calls and “A Bear’s Life Magazine” set it up. Because of his stocky build Colicchio, who is married with kids,  has been an icon in the bear community for quite sometime. Even though his restaurants have underwhelmed me often, this is pretty cool.

Friday it was made clear that if DADT will be repealed there might be some changes in the living situation of military people. The Pentagon is now heavily denying wanting separate barracks and showers after heavy criticism from the gay community and says there is only talk about maybe some extra shower curtains. Fuck that, how can a president whose father has been subjected to segregation even consider some of these things. Very repulsive.

The U.K. AIDS hospice made famous back in the 80’s by the visit of Princess Diana will be torn down. In 1989 the Princess of Wales was one of the first famous people to touch and hug people living with HIV/AIDS. Incredibly important in breaking the taboos.

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!!





Gay news, Chicago Blackhawks at Pride, Mr Gay UK arrested, U.S army man thinks French dinner is fucking gay, AMA attacks Home Depot

23 06 2010

One of the Chicago Blackhawks(ice hockey), Brent Sobel, his wife and 4 kids will march at Gay Pride in Chicago this sunday with the Stanley Cup!. Sobel says he will be mach in honor of Brendan Burke, the gay son of American coach Brian Burke. Burke died last year right before the Olympics. Great of Sobel!! The Chicago Cubs will have a float for the first time as well.

Mr Gay UK of 2006, Mark Carter, a police man has to go to court for alleged sexual abuse, rape and drugs. He has made 4 rape victims and used illegal steroids as well. Kinda ironic that a hottie like that needs to rape people to get his sex. Probably more a power/drug-thing than.

After General McCrystal called President Obama and  VP Biden the real enemies of the men in Afghanistan, he also said he would rather got punched/beaten than go to a dinner with the french embassy. One of his adjutants called the dinner, “fucking gay,” The dinner was necessary because over 40 french soldiers got killed in Afghanistan already, but apparently for some U.S military people it is all about them. Extreme lack of respect.

The American Family Association(bigots) have attacked Home Depot and launched an email and phone campaign because the fix-it giant hosted a craft workshop for kids at the Southern Maine Pride. They think Home Depot is exposing kids to a dangerous lifestyle and an unhealthy environment and want people to protest. Lunatics!





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.





Gay news, DADT-deal, celebrities (Gaga and Jason Mraz)gay witch-hunt in Kenya

25 05 2010

Yesterday the White House and top Democrats made a deal for the repeal of DADT. It is still a little hush-hush and vaguely termed but the overall picture is that soon the congress will be able to vote on repealing the ban on gays in the military(votes in favor or against are too close to call). The change though will not happen until dec 1 and the president would also be required to certify it does not harm military readiness. I first have to see it before I believe it, but it is a step in the right direction. Good day for gays AND for the military.

Lady Gaga loves the fact that people think she has a penis because that makes it even more special that people come to see her and don;t care what she is. Gay culture is at the very essence of who she is and she will fight for the gay community until she dies, Gaga says. Straight singer Jason Mraz explains one of the reasons he is such an ally to the LGBT community. He was beaten up and called a faggot at school himself and when one of his friends came out at the same time he realized how brave that is. Love artists that are so open and honest.

Kenya police had to protect 3 gay men who were about to be lynched by their fellow villagers. People from the village were trying to open the door of the house the gays were living and cops were just in time. A month ago people from Mnarani had sent a petition to the government for the removal of the gays. Poor guys…

A gay man who was beating up terribly in Ontario, Canada last summer has pleaded guilty to assault for doing something back!! The thugs shouted faggot and threw bricks at the gays and after on of the gay men pulled one thug of his friend’s back, he kicked him. He has no money to defend himself in court and just pleaded guilty.He only got a conditional discharge that will disappear as a criminal record in a year but still… How wrong is this??!!





Gay news, outrage Malawi sentence(Madonna/White House, Aussi news(Gay MP and football, gays in military does work, Backstreet boys at gay pride SF

21 05 2010

It seems that everyone is upset with the sentence of the Malawian gay couple yesterday. They got 14 years in jail and hard labour for being in love. First our minister for foreign affairs, christian democrat Maxime Verhagen called it terrible and says Malawi does not get any money from the Netherlands.He also calls for EU sanctions against Malawi. Madonna who is building a school there  also says she is shocked and saddened and thinks Malawi took a giant step backwards. The White House send out a statement strongly condemning it.

An Australian Labor MP(strong family values!) has resigned yesterday after being filmed leaving a gay sex sauna and club. He even used the ministerial car to go there. He is married with 2 children. Why are it always the “family values” guys.

Australian footballer leagues Jason Akermanis had the message for gay players to stay in the closet. He told in a column in the Herald Tribune that AFL footy is not ready for it. Using the showering together as the biggest reason while saying he is not homophobic. Why always she showering. Guys look at each other’s cocks anyway, gay or not. And what man does not look at a women’s tits?? Is that such a big deal?? His own club as well as others have distanced themselves from his comments as have other athletes.

Gays in the military are a non-issue in the Netherlands, Israel, England, Canada and Australia, officers of those countries have told at a DADT hearing. There are even benefits like better retention of qualified soldiers. Gays often do not have children and that is the main reason for many soldiers to leave the army in their 20’s/30’s.

And some light news to end this post. The Backstreet Boys will be performing at this year’s Gay pride in SF on june 27. They must be the most popular male band ever in the world to have performed at Pride. I have never been a fan at all, but good for them.





Dear Democrats, we need to talk

20 05 2010

Very good article I found on the web!!

Dear Democrats,

We need to talk.

This may be a hard letter to read, but I need to figure out if this relationship is still healthy for me.

For the longest time, I thought we had something special. Remember how much fun we used to have back when we were young, and control of the Congress and the presidency was just a crazy dream? You always used to ask me for help, and you knew I’d never turn you down.

You were so adorable when we were courting. Sure, you never really understood me, but I liked that you seemed to try. The White House cocktail parties were totally fun, and that Easter Egg Roll is something I’ll always cherish. Or remember the time you let me march in the Inaugural parade! Other than that whole Rick Warren thing, I really thought we had a connection.

I know you kept telling me that you weren’t ready for marriage, but I was willing to wait since you had promised so much else in the meantime.

But now, I’ve kind of had it. I’m just not getting what I need out of this relationship. You rarely call me anymore, and when you do it’s to ask for money. We talked about joining the military together — but now it seems like you are flaking on that commitment. You promised to protect me from the homophobes at work, but you don’t seem to be in a hurry to actually do it. And that Department of Justice brief thing was just cruel. I’ll never understand why you did that.

It almost seems like you’re embarrassed by me in public. I know not everyone in your family approves of us, but before you got your new job, it seemed like you didn’t care what they thought and were always ready to fight for me. Now, it’s like you’re a different person.

Please don’t take this the wrong way. I still think we have a future. I want us to have a future. But I need this relationship to be healthy for both of us. And I just can’t get excited anymore by your empty promises and half-gestures.

I need you to take a real step. You know what I’m talking about — the Employment Non-Discrimination Act and repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.

I still worry every day that I can be fired in 29 states just because I’m gay. And my friend who is transgender can be fired in 38 states. I know you can do it. You’ve helped protect people from employment discrimination on the basis of race, sex, religion, disability and many other characteristics. Each time my friend and I have been left behind. It’s our turn.ENDA’s time has come.

It’s our turn to be welcomed into the military as well. I want to serve my country openly and proudly. I was so excited when you promised you would repeal Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell this year after 17 long years of putting up with it.

Now, I can’t even get you to talk about DADT.

You promised to change. I know that you can. But why should I stand by your side when you can’t keep your promises to me?

I get that you’re scared. But I’m scared too — scared of losing you. You need to prove to me that you really care. You need to finally give me the Employment Non-Discrimination Act and repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, like you promised.

I have enough disappointments in my life. I need you to not be one of them.

Love, the gays
