Gay news, Malawi couple broken up, GENDA suffers defeat in NY senate, Ted Haggard

9 06 2010

Just 3 weeks after being pardoned by their president one part of the Malawi couple, Steven, previously sentenced to 14 years in jail is engaged to a woman named Dorothy(what’s in a name) He says they never even had sex and it was all a miscommunication. The other one,  Chimbalanga,  says he is still gay and is looking for another boyfriend. I can totally understand Steven trying life with a woman no, it beats years in prison. Chimbalanga is a total hero though for just being himself.

The gender-identity non-discrimination bill known as GENDA, has suffered a nasty and maybe surprising defeat in NY senate committee with 12-11. All Republicans and that asshole Ruben Diaz voted against it. It would prohibit discrimination based on gender identity but conservatives acted like it was just a chance for men to get in women’s bathroom facilities. What a shame, def for New York.

Former mega church pastor Ted Haggard, the one of the gay and meth scandal) has started a new church in Colorado Springs with his wife Gayle. It is all-inclusive even for sinners that are gratefully redeemed. He talked to Joy Behar(love my Joy) about it who made it very clear to him being gay is not a sin. 160 people showed up for his church, at least 1 of them was gay. Or make that 2 with Haggard himself.

Gay News, Mr Gay from South Africa, pastor refuses to give gay prince Carnival his communion wafer, BBC host euthanized partner with AIDS

16 02 2010

This weekend, the Mr Gay elections were held in Norway and the winner was Charl Vandenberg from South Africa. The guy owns a bar in Capetown, made some J/O porn and is pretty good-looking but was not my favorite. Sergio Lara from Spain ended a runner-up and should have won. Overall there were not a lot of hotties. Mr China ended in 4th place and ran without permission from Beijing where the nationals were forbidden. The Netherlands had no competitor for lack of funds!!??. Last year’s dutch guy was not hot at all and I actually once briefly dated a former Mr Gay Netherlands and he was kinda hot, but not Mr hot.

In the Netherlands this weekend Carnival was being held and it is a big deal, definitely in the south of our country. Every community choses their prince( I actually was prince once at school, before I started to really dislike Carnival) and the town Reusel in Brabant had a gay prince this year. A pastor called Luc Buyens refused to give the prince his communion wafer during the carnival’s ceremony in church because of the guy being gay. The only thing he could get was a cross on his forehead. He refused to get that and many people in church did the same to support the prince. I did not even know a pastor could do that. The prince, like myself, has done his communion and was baptized in church so this is just ridiculous. I have never been refused even after I came out. You can be gay and catholic!!

BBC host Ray Gosling, 70, is being investigated by police after he admitted in a show about euthanasia yesterday that he did that to his boyfriend  with aids. They had made a deal with each other that if the pain got too much and there was nothing to be done that they would not let the guy suffer more. One day the doctors said there was nothing to be done and he asked the doctors to leave and smothered his partner with a pillow. The doctors knew what happened but did not question anything. I think Gosling did the only humane thing to do. It must have been terrible to do and shown great love for his partner. Of course not everyone agrees with this and I am curious to see how this ends.





Gay News, college teacher says homosexuality is sin, christian leader tells it like it is, poll on gays in military

10 02 2010

A biology teacher at a college in Fresno relied on the bible to do his teachings. He said gays are a burden/threat to society and that homosexuality is a biological mistake. Of course many students were offended and a complaint has been brought up against the school and the teacher. Someone needs to get his ass fired.

Pastor Ken Eastburn who leads a network of worshippers in California and Colorado says that regardless of the outcome of Prop 8 christians should worry less about imposing their own morals on others and worry more about their own life.He says it is a common mistake for christians to spent time energy and money advocating for a morality that is consistent with their faith while in fact they should be focusing on themselves. Hear, hear, I am sick of all these so-called christians that are against gay marriage but visit prostitutes or have affairs themselves. Hypocrites.

Since DADT( no openly gays in military) has been in the news a lot lately with most people wanting it to be repealed except people like John McCain ans Sarah Palin, there was a big poll done by Quinnipiac to show what Americans feel about that. 57% of people say they feel gays should be able to serve in the military. But 54% say gays should face restrictions on exhibiting their sexual orientation on the job. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?? Also most people believe the Pentagon should not provide for domestic partners of gay staff and people are split on whether heterosexual staff should be required to share quarter with the gays. WTF??? How discriminatory is that, people of America. What if someone would say that about white and black gays.





Bruno

16 12 2009

I finally saw the movie Bruno this weekend, half a year later than the rest of the world. I was gonna go and see it with my sister back in summer, but first I got sick and then she was on vacation and when we both had the time and felt like it, the movie was already not playing anymore in cinemas. I was bummed then, but not so much anymore. What an utter disappointment. Maybe my expectations were too high after loving Borat so much.

The first half an hour of Bruno were just excruciatingly unfunny, only slightly funny was him coming on to presidential candidate Ron Paul and then after being blown off saying even Ru Paul was not into him. The whole skit in the Middle East was terrible though. It had some funny moments later on when you see him interact as Bruno with normal people who believe he is for real. The camping trip with the rednecks where he says they are just like the Sex and the City-girls and later on wants to sleep in one guy’s tent, the swinger party where he keeps touching other guys or the boxing match in the end where all the rednecks go crazy the moment they see two men kissing. My favorite part was him talking to a conversion pastor( cures gays) who says his lips were meant to spread the word of God and Bruno said he thought the guys lips were made for sucking cock. Not great by any means but worth watching at home when nothing is on tv?? yes!
