GLBT News, Ru Paul’s gets another show, Tucker Carlson calls Rachel Maddow a man, transgender prison in Italy

13 01 2010

Ru Paul will get another show on Logo called Ru Paul’s Drag U. On this show Ru and other drag queens apply fairy godmother dust to the lives and looks of people who need a little help. Sounds like fun!!!

Many gay media outlets are pissed off at Fox News’s Tucker Carlson’s new website in which he say he has the gift of wisdom(ha!) but also that he would rather have another gift like the untold riches of Little Wayne or be the sexiest man alive like Rachel Maddow. I think that is just hilarious and gay blogs bitching that it is because Rachel is a lesbian should just calm down and accept a funny joke( she does kinda look like a guy, even though I do like her). A funny joke is a funny joke!

A previously empty female prison in Pozzale, Italy will be transformed into a prison-house for transgender inmates. It will house 30 of the believed 60 transsexual inmates Italy has. Most of the women have only drug-related or prostution sentences and would be butt of jokes or aggression in normal prisons. A great idea!





Gay news; Stephen Gately funeral, march for gay bashing victim gets counter-protest, gays calling people homophobes that are not

18 10 2009

Yesterday was the very emotional funeral of gay Boyzone member Stephen Gately in Dublin. Many celebrities came to pay their respect or left messages of condolences. This was a truly loved individual. His former band member, with Ronan Keating, carried his coffin and held a vigil the night before. Last week a bitch from the Daily Mail used the rumors surrounding his death to slam the gay lifestyle, something that had ultimately nothing to do with his death. And even if it had been drugs, how many straight pop stars haven’t died of excess?? The thing that must be excruciatingly hard for his husband though, is knowing he had sex with another man while Gately died.

Yesterday was a march and rally in support of gay bashing victim Jack Price. Around 300 people came to Queens to show their support and protest against gay bashing. Surprisingly enough there were also some counter-protesters screaming for the release of the gay basher( unbelievable). Among the group of thugs was also the Leviticus tattoo guy I reported about earlier. According to locals this is the same group that caused the neighborhood to go downhill in the last few years. 

Some people in the gay community should be a little less quick with calling straight allies homophobic and screaming for their apology. This weekend “Girls Gone Wild” founder Joe Francis called a doorman a fag after being denied at a club. Of course this is stupid and juvenile but this is the same man who walked in the National Equality March last week so clearly no homophobe. And from Britain comes an even better example of ridiculousness. Gay icon Dannii Minogue and sister of THE gay icon Kylie told a singer who himself admitted he was bi-sexual that he could have left the lyrics to “And I’m telling you” to that of someone singing to a man. Why in the hell is that bad?? Apparently many people think she should not have brought up his sexuality but to say she is homophobic is just stupid.





Gay news; 3 stories about people that get discriminated themselves, but do the same to gays

16 10 2009

The Muslim football team that first refused to play a gay team, then said they would and then again backed out are being kicked out of their local Paris league for discrimination. Well done Paris, this was just too ridiculous. Muslims always yell that they don’t get any respect. Well, let them show others respect for a change.

ABC news had an interview with a latino thug that was friends with the guys that beat down Jack Price this weekend, something I blogged about earlier this week. The guy is proudly showing of his tattoo with the Leviticus quote, “A man shall not lay with a male as one does with a woman, it’s an abomination”  and then says it was not an anti-gay hate-crime and that the Price had it coming for blowing kisses at him and other guys in the Queens Area.Luckily Price is out of his coma now. I get so sick of the gay panic defense/hiding behind religion that is used as a stupid excuse for such violence. Well with a tattoo like that you are not very believable as it comes to not hating gays!! And if there is a God he would certainly not accept beating up an innocent man like that.

A lesbian woman was the victim of some anti-gay abuse at the National Equality March by a group of black teenage skateboarders. They threw a jug at her and her girlfriend and when she asked who did it, one girl came forward and asked if she had a problem with that. When she answered back “yes, why did you do this” , the black girl answered that she was a bitch and a dyke. The lesbian woman started to reason with the girl and told her she was black and her great-great grandparents might have been slaves and then all hell broke loose. The black girl started screaming the lesbian called her a nigger and  a slave and started to hit her and the gf with her skateboard and the other group of skateboarders came aggressively closer as well. Luckily police showed up and arrested the black girl. As much as I hate to say this, behavior like this seems to be pretty common in the black community and they should be fucking ashamed of themselves. Most gays have always stood behind acceptance of black and what do we get in return. My acceptance personally is getting less and less





Gay news, Equality March a success, Schwarzenegger shows his pro-gay side, another vicious hate-crime in NYC

13 10 2009

The National Equality March in Washington as a huge success. With over 250.000 people(lots of young people)  attending and with guest speakers as Lady Gaga, Cynthia Nixon(Miranda in Sex and the City) and Cleve Jones( activist in the 70’s and friend of Harvey Milk) who all delivered great speeches, I hope Washington and Obama will listen!

Yesterday Arnold Schwarzenegger signed two pro-gay bills into law. The first is by making May 22nd Harvey Milk day to honor the killed gay activist. Something he refused to do last year. The other gives LGBT people a less symbolic gain by recognizing same-sex marriages performed in other states. The wingnut right goes angry of course, calling Harvey Milk a predator and liar. Well, I have to say after a very weak start as Governor of California, Schwarzenegger does better and better.

A 49-year old gay man was brutally beaten outside a Queens’ deli friday early morning. Two men yelled anti-gay slurs and attacked him. The man is in a coma and has two collapsed lungs, liver damage, a fractured jaw, rib fractures and a lacerated spleen. One victim 21- year old Daniel Rodriguez has been arrested. The police is still on the look-out for the other suspect. Just horrible





gay news; Ru Paul’s drag race, Hurricanes

23 08 2009

One of my favorite tv-shows, Ru Paul’s drag race is coming to the Netherlands. I watched all the American episodes religiously but can’t wait to see it here on TV as well. Ongina, Chanel and Nina Flowers were my favorites. We actually had a drag show on TV here over 10 years ago but it wasn’t nearly as much fun as the American version. A great blend of Project Runway, America’s Next Top model and drag-queen bitchiness. 

The evangelical church in the U.S. has lifted it’s ban on sexually active gays and lesbians serving as ministers. 68% of the 1000 members of the national assembly agreed with the lifting of the ban. That is some great news for some but doom for others. According to John Piper, pastor of the Bethlehem baptist church blamed the tornado that hit Minneapolis last week on the assembly even talking about allowing gays. We gays sure are powerful with nature, blamed for Katrina, tsunami and now this.





Another hate crime in New York

11 07 2009

2 men, Nathaniel Mims and Rasheed Thomas were charged and being arrested after throwing rocks and beer bottles at a transgender woman in Queens. They also shouted anti-gay slurs at her and threatened to cut her throat if she would ever walk on the same block again. The woman was treated for a deep cut on her leg in the hospital. Hope this was the last homophobic attack in New York. There have been way too many now in a short period of time.
