Gay news, no civil partnership Hawaii,Kylie wins gay prize, end to EU gay blood ban? Gay Pride Jerusalem, She’s back!!!

7 07 2010

Republican Governor Linda Lingle from Hawaii vetoed a bill yesterday that would have allowed same-sex civil unions in that state. Because Lingle invited Justice Steven Levinson, who back in 1993 found that the law banning gay marriage was unconstitutional, people expected she would sign the bill in favor of the civil unions. She thinks the bill is too similar to marriage though and that is only allowed for twice-divorced bitches like Lingle herself. Bigots were happy.

During Gay Pride in Madrid, Kylie Minogue was awarded a gay prize for her devotion to the gay community. She said it was a great honor and praised Spain for allowing gay marriage. Kylie sure deserves this prize, no big artist has been so supportive on gay issues for so many years. Except maybe for Madonna back in the day. Kylie is a lot more likeable though and that translates better to straight people.

Ministers from Health in several countries from the EU are planning to file a motion that in the EU gays should no longer be denied to donate blood. Just like in the U.S gays that have had sex since 1977 are not allowed to donate. Sweden is the only country that allows gay men to donate blood as long as they did not have sex in the last year. I think the whole rule is ridiculous, the only thing that matters is if people are safe, gay or straight. Definitely in these times.

District police of Jerusalem have changed their minds and granted permission for this year’s parade(end of the month) to terminate at the Knesset building. It is the one-year anniversary of the shootings in Tel Aviv at a gay center and getting to the Knesset is a proper way to symbolize what the parade is about. Full equal rights and an end to violence. Totally agree with that.

She is back. PhatGayKid is now lisping though Katy Perry’s “California Gurls.”

Gossip, Beatty’s daughter trans, Lady Gaga/Yankees, royal wedding Sweden, Kathy Griffin

21 06 2010

The daughter of actors Warren Beatty and Annette Bening, 18-year-old Kathlyn wants a gender reassignment surgery to make her a man. She has been calling herself Steven for a while now while attending college. Must be so hard for parents, but all you can do is love you child regardless.

Lady Gaga has made herself the center of attention at a baseball game of the Yankees again, according to several media. Apparently two weeks ago she  gave people the finger after they booed her and now she was dressed in only underwear and a Yankees blouse and walked into the dressing room of the players after a lost match. Apparently that is a no-no, so people were pissed. Gaga has been a fan for years already so they probably told her to come into the dressing room and two weeks I think she gave the paparazzi the finger, not the fans. But I am prejudiced in favor of Lady Gaga of course.

The crown princess of Sweden, Victoria married her former personal trainer and gym owner Daniel Westling saturday. It was the first big royal wedding in quite sometime and as a good gay I watched it to see the dress, which was boring as was the whole ceremony. I always have a soft spot for Scandinavians, but this…

Kathy Griffin’s new season “My life on the D-list “opened a little disappointing with only 695.000 viewers on Bravo. Last year’s opening had 945.000. I think last year’s idea for the show and visiting famous people was not great and people might have been turned off by that. This year promises more Kathy in her real life and around her mom, which I like best anyway. Negative news about Kathy and Lady Gaga, two of my favs today. Do not like that.





Gay news, Soccer world cup star on gay rumors, new movie about fag hag, dutch evangelical TV boss wants gay job, gay-bashing in Vancouver

15 06 2010

Freddie Ljungberg is the impossibly handsome world cup soccer star of Sweden. He is also a model for Calvin Klein. When asked about the gay rumors that have haunted him for years he says the following.” I don’t mind it at all, I am proud of it. I think gay people have amazing style so it is a compliment for me. Could any straight man give a better answer??

Jesse Archer has a new movie out in which he stars and also wrote part of the screenplay. It looks really good and is the follow-up of the equally great a Four Letter Word. It is about the oldest living fag-hag. I love the line: “Do you want my 8 inches??” ” What, are you gonna fuck me twice?”

Bert Dorenbos, former boss of Evangelical Broadcasting in the Netherlands, sent his resume to the COC(the biggest dutch gay organization) Not because he is so open-minded, but to protest a new law that would make it illegal for christian schools to NOT hire a gay teacher that is qualified for a job. Of course there is a huge difference between hiring a homophobe at a gay organization and hiring a gay christian teacher at a christian school. But I say hire him and let host leather parties or clean the darkrooms.

A gay couple in normally gay-friendly Vancouver saw 2 thugs peeing against their house last saturday night and when they confronted the men and asked them to leave they were given 5 punches to the head, called names and bitten like a dog.  Both men had to go to the hospital and have terrible scars. Hope the police catches those monsters.





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.





Priest falls asleep during suicide call

14 04 2010

A suicidal 44-year old man from Sweden got all of his strength together to make a phone call to a priest to help him get off the idea of suicide. It was the middle of the night and the man first heard that the priest starting yawning, followed by silence in which he thought the priest was making notes but is was followed by snoring. He woke the priest up but 5 minutes later the same happened. The woman from the hotline that dials the people through too pastors is obviously upset about the whole thing.





Gay news, Ricky M forced out,Johnny Weir questions Lysacek’s girlfriend,attitudes towards gays in different countries

1 04 2010

Rumor has it that Ricky Martin only came out of the closet because his boyfriend ,a fellow Puerto Rican wanted to out him and was being fed up with the hiding. Makes total sense, why else would he come out right now.

Johnny Weir was making the rounds once more at late-night talk shows, this time with E’s Chelsea Handler where he mocked Evan Lysacek’s “straightness”. When talking about rooming with Evan’s ex-girlfriend at the Olympics he made a very telling wink while saying girlfriend. Love me some Johnny.

The attitudes towards homosexuality have been tested with polls asking people “if they think homosexuality is never justifiable,” since the 80’s. Back in 1980 39% of swedes thought is was unjustifiable, now only 4%. In Germany it went from 45% to 11%. Japan from 54% to 24%. U.S not so good, still 35% in 2006. It came from 66% in the early 80’s though so that is a good step in the right direction.





After a pee-bag for woman, now a poop-bag for all

6 03 2010

A while ago there was the invention of a pee-bag for ladies, but now there is something for both genders. The Peepoo. It is a biological disposable plastic bag that can be used for one-time emergency situations. It has crystals in it that kill viruses, bacteria and parasites and later on the bag can be used as compost for gardens!! A swedish entrepeneur invented this after seeing people in Kenya use plastic bags to poop in and then just throw it away. They call it a helicopter toilet. Ideal for Kirstie Alley so she does not have to use her kids diapers anymore for her emergency toilet problems.
