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, Laura Bush, lesbian not in yearbook, Johnny Weir/Lysacek, hate in NC

29 04 2010

In her upcoming memoir Laura Bush tells that she told her husband not to make gay marriage an issue in the 2004 elections because of all the gay friends and friends with gay kids they have. Too bad he did not listen to her!

A Mississippi high school is refusing to not only put lesbian Ceara Sturgis pic in the yearbook because she was wearing a tux(something I blogged about before) but now just removed her from the yearbook all together. The fact that she went there for 12 years and was a top student apparently is not important for the school. Being a lesbian is a way bigger deal apparently.

As you may remember Johnny Weir was not invited for the U.S Stars on Ice tour because he was not family friendly enough. Now his nemesis Evan Lysacek slams Johnny for whining and says he just was not good enough. Well I saw the line-up and there are other people in there that did not win 3 nationals or a bronze medal so Lysacek’s comment is bullshit. Besides not Johnny made an issue about not participating but the media did. Johnny was at Wendy Williams show and reacted back to this thing though a little less subdued, he called Lysacek is a slore(slut/whore).

Parents in Booneville, North Carolina proved to be huge bigots after hearing that 2 gay kids will attend a school prom together. They will hold a separate prom to make sure their straight kids will not be exposed to “gayness.” In this time and age??





Celebrities, Green Day, Lance Bass, Collin Farrell, Cyndi Lauper, Lady Gaga

10 04 2010

Lance Bass, GreenDay and Cat Cora will host a gay prom in Mississippi open to everyone but geared towards gay youth that could not bring their dates to prom. Kids like Constance McMillen who could not bring her girlfriend and where the school held a secret prom for the rest of the students that she could not attend. Great that people are doing something about despicable acts like that.

Actor Collin Farrell has been speaking out against anti-gay bullying for a campaign to help youth in Ireland. His gay brother Eamon came home bloody sometimes after school because he was “different” and Collin made a great statement how different in fact is great and it is a disgrace that some kids do not survive their teenage years because of bullying like this. Great guy he is!

Cyndi Lauper’s organization is helping establish Manhattan’s first permanent housing for LGBT youth that are homeless. The True Colors residence will open in Harlem in the Winter of 2011 to help 18-24 year old to get back on their feet. What a fantastic and very important thing.

Lady Gaga loves her fans and that is why she spoke out in favor of a 15-year old student that was wearing a I heart Lady Gay Gay shirt to school that was sent home. She says she is proud of him and that he should just be himself!! Hear, hear





Gay news, Mugabe rears his ugly head again, Lithuania just as gay friendly as Norway!!??, anti-Derrick rally

27 03 2010

Zimbabwe leaders Mugabe and Tsvirangi are outraged at even the suggestion for gay rights, Mugabe calls homosexuality something that destroys nationhood(like he not already destroyed Zimbabwe single-handedly). In 2006 he already called gays less than pigs and dogs. Poor people of Zimbabwe.

Lithuanian prime minster Kubilius defended his country against allegations from the EU that it would be homophobic by saying it was just as tolerant as Scandinavian countries like Norway and Denmark. What a joke, those countries are some of the most tolerant on the world. Lithuania, not!!

Poor Derrick Martin. First his parents throw him out of the house after finding out he is gay on such a media level. Now some student are holding a anti-Derrick rally because they do not like it that he can bring a boy to the prom and all the attention this brings to their town. Ugly bigots, shame on them. Only positive thing for Derrick, Ellen DeGeneres wants him on her show.





Gay news, Prom issues/kicked out of the house, gay soldiers sue general Sheehan, lesbionic sushi roll

25 03 2010

A judge in Mississippi ruled that the prom ban violated the rights of lesbian teen Constance McMillen but he did not reinstate the prom. Now students and parents have organized a private prom that Constance can attend. So good news and bad.

Meanwhile in Georgia openly gay teen Derrick Martin could bring a male date even though the principal did  not agree, she also thought she could not refuse him. The sad news about this is though, that Derricks’ parents have kicked him out of the house following the media attention of him coming out and he know lives with a friend. Monstrous parents.

A group of openly gay soldiers has filed a lawsuit against ex-general Sheehan who made some ridiculous claims last week that the gays in the army were to blame for the fall of Srebrenica. The gay soldiers are supported by almost the entire dutch government/parliament and want a full-page apology in the international press and sensitivity training for Sheehan. Hope they win.

A sushi restaurant in San Francisco has a very interesting roll on the menu ,the lesbionic roll! It is white tuna wrapped in tempura rice noodles over spinach. It sounds tasty but why is it lesbian??





Gay news; Sven Kramer pro-gay, Chad Hedrick at Pat Robertson’s showShocker,not!!! Roy Asburn, Sean Hayes come out of the closet, Johnny Weir denied skating in Stars on Ice, school bans prom because of lesbian

12 03 2010

I was sick for a few days so did not blog about these things so some of it might be old news for you guys.

Two speed skaters showed two different sides of the gay spectrum this week. Dutch Sven Kramer spoke out in defense of his teammate lesbian Ireen Wust and said being gay was normal and does not define who a person is at all. American Chad Hedrick was at evil anti-gay Pat Robertson’s 700 club yesterday. Yuck!!!

Roy Ashburn, state senator from California, came out of the closet this week after being arrested outside of a gay club. Something I talked about last week. He admitted to being gay and told he had a lot of trouble with admitting that. He also said he will continue to vote against gay rights and only does that because the people in his district want him too. What a self-hating idiot.

Sean Hayes, aka Jack McFarland, came out of the closet officially this weekend as well to Advocate magazine. He is also kinda pissed for the Advocate pressuring him in the past to come out because he said he was never in. He also thinks he has done enough for the gay community anyway by playing the flamboyant Jack. I understand what he says but also do not understand why he did not officially come out before and all of a sudden now he does.

Johnny Weir was deemed not family friendly enough aka, too gay for the sponsors of Stars on Ice. Ridiculous for someone who is putting his brother through college and supports his family financially because his dad has disability. He obviously is very close with his family, so this reason is ridiculous.

A high school in Fulton, Mississippi cancelled the school prom because lesbian student Constance McMillan was gonna bring her girlfriend. They first tried to ban her from bringing her girlfriend or wear a tuxedo and after they figured out they did not have the right for that, they just banned the whole prom. Making the girl the scapegoat for other students. Very evil.





Gay news; Alabama prom discrimination, R.I gays not allowed to bury each other, men attempt to burn gay flag

12 11 2009

A lesbian teen wanted to take her girlfriend to her school’s prom. She had personally raised over $200 and even created the theme for the year. Tharptown High School refused to let her bring her date to the prom and after several organizations demanded she as allowed to attend the school decided to cancel the prom all together. Making the girl the scapegoat. What a bunch of bigot assholes.

Rhode Island Governor Don Carcieri vetoes a new law that would allow same-sex couples to make burial decisions for each other. According to him that is a disturbing erosion of the principles surrounding traditional marriage. So even when dead as a gay men you deserve no basic rights according to that asshole.

In Memphis 2 men were arrested after they attempted to set fire on a rainbow flag at the Memphis Gay and Lesbian Community Center. The arrest was not after a fight with the police though and one of the men had to be punched and pepper-sprayed. It’s the second act of vandalism on the center. In september a billboard featuring a gay marine as destroyed on Nation Coming Out day. The crime inspired hundreds to rally in response.
