Gay news, Anita bitch back, gay basher in NY gets nothing, Today Show and the gays, Broadway Bares

10 07 2010

The original Carrie Prejean, anti-gay beauty queen Anita Bryant will be back in the public eye. She will be in Yukon, Oklakoma for a patriotic performance. It is basically for a group against muslims and gays(cause they are similar?!) It will also coincide with the local Tea Party. Prejean ,who of course is not nearly as bad as Bryant was, got married last weekend to pro football player San Diego quarterback Kyle Boller. She did it in style, at the hotel of anti-gay Doug Manchester.

Driton Nicaj assaulted 3 gay man in 2009 and only got 45 days, less than Lindsay Lohan. Two men required stitches and one men even a metal plate in his skull while he used anti-gay slurs. Apparently the judges think this is not severe. Unbelievable. And why is it so often in civilized places like the Netherlands and New York a non local sounding name?? Those people should go back to their own countries if they cannot be civil in ours.

The Today Show got a lot of slack from pro-gay people by not letting gay couples enter their ” Modern Wedding Contest”. They eventually agreed it was not fair and opened the contest for gays as well. Now of course the right-wing bigots are all up in arms. The American Family Association for instance wants people to boycott the Today show from now on for promoting this “sinful behavior.” Poor Today Show, can’t do it right for everyone. But they did the right thing in my eyes.

Broadway Bares is a yearly show from Broadway Cares in which stars of the theatre strip and dance for HIV/AIDS. They raised an amazing 1 million dollars this year. I have never been but after seeing this footage, count me in for next year!!

Gay news, dutch elections, lesbian moms better, Oklahoma city councilman compares gays with pedophiles and wife-beaters

8 06 2010

Tomorrow is election-day in the Netherlands and because I never got my voter’s permit, I had to get one yesterday. It was a hassle but necessary. I read on the biggest gay website in the Netherlands that Libertarians(VVD) were number 1 with gays(also with me) followed by Geert Wilders’ PVV. Maybe if I would be gay and living in Amsterdam or Rotterdam and face all the discrimination and abuse by Moroccan guys I would be doing the same thing. Third is D’66, kinda left of the middle. I voted that my first 2 times. I think the Netherlands needs a strong economic party though to face the crisis and that is why VVD is good imo. I would never vote christian, green of left so there is not much else left to vote for anyway!!

According to a just published study from over 20 years, lesbian moms seem to raise better kids! On measurement of development and social behavior their kids scored similar to the kids of straight parents. But on self-esteem and confidence they scored higher, were better academically and had less behavioral problems. Wow!! Curious what the bigots say about this.

Oklahoma City approved a gay pride parade with 8-1 votes. The sole person against it was Brian Walters, who is a born-again christian that does not believe in the gay lifestyle. He said he would also not support wife-beaters or pedophiles to assemble. Cause that is the same thing, you know. What an idiot.

Sao Paulo Gay pride 2010 was a huge success. In Brazil, 3.2 million people celebrated and there were hardly any incidents. Pride is financed by the government and brings in millions of dollars to the city in revenue. I saw some footage and it looked pretty fabulous.





Gay news, Havana/Minsk-pride, big difference conservatives in GB and US, Burial bill likely vetoed in Minnesota, retarded DADT statement

16 05 2010

Gay pride in Havana, Cuba was a huge success, hundreds paraded violent-free in drag and with flags. One of them was the daughter of the president Raul Castro, Mariela a long-time LGBT advocate. The Slavic Pride in Minsk was anything but a success though. The 40 brave participants saw some journalist and TV crew but did not get any further then 300 meters after which riot police arrested the gay men violently. There were also tons of counter-protesters, mostly skinheads who were throwing eggs.

It is interesting that the conservative party in Great Britain, the Tories have eleven openly gay members in parliament and nine in the glass closet. One is a lesbian and 2 are even ministers, the party is proud of that. Compare that to the US where there are zero . U.S has a long way to go in that regard.

A bill that passed the senate in Minnesota giving gays the same end of life rights as straights will likely be vetoes by the Republican governor Tim Pawlenty. According to him the bill in unnecessary and will stoke up the fire on a hot button issue. Unbelievable people believe gays have not the same rights hen it comes to burying their partner.

According to James Inhofe, Oklahoma Senator and Armed Service Committee member soldiers are unwilling to fight for lesbians and gay soldiers also in the line of fire. According to him soldiers are doing it for the man in the next foxhole and if that man is gays they would not want to anymore. How bigoted and foolish. Why does it work OK in Britain, the Netherlands and Israel then???





Gay News, GLAAD stupid again, homosexual a slur, man sues for “I’m Gay” license plate

13 02 2010

While there are many gay organizations doing good things GLAAD proves to be stupid again. While in Africa this week gays have been beaten up, they have a super anti-gay law coming up there and in the U.S there are every week also anti-gay crimes, GLAAD focused on this: John Mayer, a gay ally that has stood up for gay rights many times, told playboy he gave Perez Hilton the dirtiest, tong-iest kiss ever, almost as if he hated fags. Now GLAAD want him to apologize for what he said. Just stupid, pick your battles!!!!!

A CBS/New York Times poll on DADT revealed that many Americans respond more negatively to the word homosexual then to “gay men and lesbians”. When they were asked if homosexuals or gays should be allowed to serve openly in the military 44% favor homosexuals and 58% favor gays!!!  I am not surprised by this because (Republican) bigots always use the word homosexual and not gay because they know it sounds sexual and that is a turn-off for a lot of people. So I think from now on politicians should all use the word gay!! Will not happen though.

A guy from Oklahoma is suing his state because he cannot use the license plate that reads: “I’m Gay”. Oklahoma Tax commission turned him down because the plate might be offensive to the public. Using straight sexy though is allowed, so kinda double standards. I do not think it is necessary to have your license plate read I’m Gay, but it is not offensive and definitely not more than STR8SXI.
