Kathy Griffin promoted awareness for cancer in a way only she can. By getting a public pap smear at a famous pool in Los Angeles, of course while being filmed for her TV-show. She sure knows how to get attention for a good cause. I love Kathy, her antics/shows always cheers me up when I am in a crappy mood.

Kate Hudson got breast implants. I am surprised someone like her with a flat chest did not get it earlier but now her body fits the person she is even more. Off hunting for one celebrity boyfriend after the other.

The GLAAD(gay and lesbian alliance against defamation) media awards were handed out this weekend. I think GLAAD often overreacted while handling gay-related things this year so I am not a fan but they handed out awards to the good shows/people. Drew Barrymore, Wanda Sykes, Glee and Ru Pauls’ Drag Race won the prizes.

Rush Limbaugh made a fool of himself yet another time by saying the eruption of the volcano in Iceland might have been God’s response to Obama’s health care reform. Surprised no one has blamed it on the gays like they did with 9/11 and Katrina. Will be soon though I guess.





Gay news, Gay BBC host died, VH1 transgender makeover show, priest moonlights as hooker

2 03 2010

Gay BBC-host Kristian Digby died of auto-erotic asphyxiation. I watched many shows of the very good-looking 32-year old and always though he was so level-headed and cool. I do not understand the thrill of this fetish( and I understand a lot!!!) that also killed Michael Hutchence but if people like it so much I think they should always do it with someone else in the room. Very sad.

VH1 will try to lift some more on the massive success of Ru Paul’s drag race by having their own version of Queer Eye for the Straight guy with transgender girls. It will start in 2 weeks and is called Transform Me. Three tranny girls will make-over a straight girl into a fabulous being. I agree some straight chicks could learn a thing or 2 about femininity from drag queen or transgender girls. I will sure as hell watch it.

A 27-year-old Spanish Catholic priest resigned from his parish after  church-goers discovered he was selling his body on the Internet to couples. He called himself a well-hung(with 15 cm, haha!!) straight man for women and couples to give them pleasure and happiness. He also stole $20000 from the parish. And than they worry about gays getting a communion wafer.





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!





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!





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.
