Gay news, Castro shooting, first presidential gay marriage, gay domestic violence by former Minnesota Viking

28 06 2010

During Pink Saturday in SF’s Castro a man shot 3 people during the kick-off of the Gay Pride festivities. It happened at the corner of Market and Castro in front of  The Cafe at 11pm. A 19-year old man was killed and a man and woman injured. The suspect, another 19-year old man was taken into custody. I used to walk there everyday, so scary and sad…

Icelandic Prime Minister Sigurdardottir married her partner at the same day gay marriage became legal in Iceland yesterday. They already had a registered partnership since 2002. This makes her next to being the first gay Prime Minister ever also the first head of state  to have a same-sex marriage.

That gays are no different from straight people unfortunately also goes for domestic violence. Former Minnesota Viking and out gay man since 2002, Esara Tuaolo, was arrested last week for domestic assault and 3 misdemeanors. He was released on bail but given a no-contact order with the victim. There are not many high-profile same-sex domestic violence cases on record, so I am curious how this pans out and if it becomes a landmark case.

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, Polish anti-gay Prime Minister dies, Huckabee still an ass, gay marriage close in Portugal

11 04 2010

A true tragedy happened yesterday in Russia where a polish airplane crashed that had almost the whole polish political elite on board. Because of fog the already old airplane could not land and did anyway and hit some trees before crashing. One of the people on board was Prime Minister Lech Kaczinsky a notorious homophobe. He was the most anti-gay leader of a european country. He banned gay prides and said same-sex marriage would destruct society. Hopefully a more progressive leader will succeed him, because I have polish family that I really like and both times I have been in Poland I had a good time so wish nothing but the best for the polish people.

Fox host and former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee showed he is still a bigoted douchebag. He said gays in the military would be nothing more than a “social experiment,” gay marriage and even civil unions are not necessary comparing it to drug use and polygamy. Gays should also not be able to adopt because kids are not puppies(!!!) and parenting is very serious and not for gays. The puppy comment is interesting even more so when knowing his son hung a stray dog.

Gay marriage is only 1 signature away in Portugal.The nation’s legislature recently passed a marriage equality bill that now has been approved by Portugal’s Constitutional Court. It now only needs the signature of the President to become law. President Silva opposes gay marriage but his veto will likely be overridden. Good for Portugal, one down, a lot to go.





Gay news, DWTS gay marriage, Navratilova breast cancer, gay marriage Iceland, bomb threat gay bar Zurich

At this week’s Dancing with the Stars Dutch Louis van Amstel danced with Niecy Nash a waltz with the theme of an interracial couple in the 60’s who could not marry. Louis told the TV audience that for gays that still is the same way and that everybody should be able to get married. According to Elisabeth Hasselbitch at The View the show should have not featured comments about gay marriage. Uhmmm?? Why not, it is a dance show for heaven’s sake with all the glitter and glamour.

Tennis super star Martina Navratilova told media yesterday that she has breast cancer. The 53-year-old 9-time Wimbledon champion is expected to make a full recovery but was upset about not being able to have full control of her life and body. I love Martina and wish good luck.

There will likely be gay marriage in Iceland in June. The tiny country of 320.000 already have domestic partnerships since 1996 and an openly lesbian prime minister and will now have full equality soon. Scandinavian countries rock when it comes to equal rights.

A gay nightclub in Zurich, Switzerland had to be evacuated on Easter sunday for a possible bomb threat. The threat was specifically made against the gay Jack Company party and police cleared the space for an hour before letting partygoers continue
