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 compares gay marriage to incest, Top Chef judge on Gay Pride float, separate showers if DADT is repealed?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Friday it was made clear that if DADT will be repealed there might be some changes in the living situation of military people.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, Malawi president, store for butch lesbians, only in SF!!, ex-gay??!!

22 06 2010

The President from Malawi urges organizations to not focus on gay rights anymore but only on children’s rights. Why help confused people when you can help children he says. Why not both is my reaction. Just because he hates gays does not mean one excludes the other.

Self-described butch lesbian Shaz Riley has launched “the Butch Clothing Company,” a fashion line specifically aimed for Cynthia Nixon’s gf and gals like her who like to look manly. It makes the bust line smaller and reduces the crotch tenting, something that happens to girls like Shaz when they shop at men’s stores. Shaz says they do not wanna be men, but they just do not like wearing female clothing.  I love a butch gal.

To fight the oil spill and save the gulf wildlife , the gays in my favorite neighborhood in the world, the Castro in SF have come up with something only they can. Pairs of muscled men only in their underwear wrestled to collect money. Volunteers took turns commenting the matches in hilarious ways and asked for donations from the crowd. Apparently it was quite the spectacle.

This “lady” is seriously trying to convince people she is not gay anymore since God saved her. This must be a parody, but I think it is not.





Gay news,the porn star and the senator, Eminem in favor of gay marriage, Iceland rebellious to God, Puerto Rico hate crimes

17 06 2010

Gay twinky porn star and escort Brandon Wilde, 20, had a dinner date with 45-year-old openly gay Republican Senator Paul Koering from Minnesota. Koering gave an interview to a porn blog after Wilde made the news of their date public on Twitter saying he did not think Wilde was making the right choices but that he was a nice guy nonetheless. It only stayed with a dinner and no sex but according to Wilde, Koering wanted more. Koeing has voted against gay marriage(self-hate!!), but told Wilde he wanted to become president and make gay marriage legal in Minnesota. Later on he denied saying that. Going on a date with a young porn star and hoping he won’t talk about certain things is a little naive Mr Koering. I bet Wilde would be the cutest “first lady” ever. I always wanted to become that though!

I always thought (f)Eminem was not a real gay hater like his music implies. There he says he hates fags etc but at the same time he was best buddies with Lady Elton(who seems to like the fake bigots). In a recent interview with the NYT he says he is fine with gay marriage and thinks gays that love another should have the same right to be miserable as straight couples. And he knows what he is talking about!!

According to “ex-gay” minister James Hartline Iceland will be in trouble. After the recent volcano eruption that “almost destroyed the nation according to him” they know voted 49-0 for gay marriage and that combined with having a “satanic” lesbian Prime Minister means they are rebellious and self-destructing. Hartline thinks he is a prophet, I think SHE is crazy.

After the recent brutal hate crimes in Puerto Rico, the government there has empaneled a special investigative committee to collect statistics and end the violence there. In 2002 there was a legislation establishing hasher penalties for crimes based on gender identity or sexual preference but so far nothing was done. At least this is a step in the right direction.





Gay news, Gay Rights ranking Europe, Zimbabwe arrests, John McCain and the gays

26 05 2010

The International Gay and Lesbian Association has released its Rainbow Europe County Index on how legislation affects LGBT people. Sweden is number 1 followed by Belgium, the Netherlands, Norway and Spain. Those 4 have anti-discrimination laws not enshrined in the constitution, like Sweden(but they do mostly use it) From the EU, Cyprus, Latvia and Poland not good and finished last. From non EU countries Turkey, Russia and Ukraine did bad.

Two members of a Zimbabwe Gay organization have been arrested. At first the government and police said it was because of drugs and porn but yesterday it was made clear they got a letter from former SF mayor Brown that was critical about that monster of a President Mugabe. Mugabe described gays as less than pigs and dogs. The 2 men are still in jail, hopefully unharmed…

Senator John McCain is anti gay marriage, opposes gay adoption, against gays in the military and against ENDA(discrimination against gays in workplace). On the other hand his wife has been a vocal supporter of gay marriage, his daughter is super pro-gay and now he hired a gay man, Mark Buse to run his campaign for re-election of Senator from Arizona. He should listen to his inner circle more.

NY Pride will be shorter than ever in a cost-cutting measure by the NYPD. It will go from 36/5th instead of 52/5th but still ends in Christopher Street. Apparently the same thing will happen to all parades in NY. I think it is totally fine, more crowd on a denser area and less to walk for the marcher in the (maybe) heat.





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





Gay news, Lesbian killed by dad-in-law/girls try to kill lesbian schoolmate, marriage equality around the globe, celebrity coming out on May 5

27 04 2010

A father in Lakeland, Florida allegedly killed the girlfriend of his daughter and was arrested. Friends of the victim say he was unhappy that the girl “pulled his daughter into the lesbian lifestyle and on the wrong path.” This comes days after 3 teens kidnapped and tried to kill a lesbian schoolmate by throwing her off a cliff, on the Day of Silence(to promote against intolerance at schools) nonetheless. You hear more about gay men being killed/abused normally but now it seems to hit women pretty hard as well.

While the proposed marriage equality in Portugal will be vetoed by the president on the day the Pope visits Portugal there is still hope the parliament can overrule this veto with a third voting round. In Finland meanwhile the parliament will consider marriage equality and adoption no matter what the outcome of the upcoming election will be. Good news!

A celebrity will come out of the closet on May 5. PR powerhouse Howard Bragman will orchestrate it and the star will have an interview with Larry King that day. I think it is either Johnny Weir or Queen Latifah.





I am gay because of dutch potatoes

22 04 2010

At least if I would believe Bolivian president Evo Morales. The original potatoes from the Andes are fine but the dutch version is devilish. They are big but have so much poison in them that you have to peel them!?? and they make you bold and gay according to the straight president with the luscious locks. I am gay but not bold at 31 so… Well at least now I know why I am gay, fuck nature or nurture , it’s them taters.
