Ticked off tranny and the bomb squad

13 07 2010

A transgender woman in Idaho was pissed off police kept identifying her as male and rigged 4 pipe bombs, set her car on fire and ran nude down a highway. 50 houses had to be evacuated because the 53-year-old Catherine Carlson put the bombs on her front porch. She is held on suspicion of arson, use of weapons of mass destruction and indecent exposure. Carlson said she only did this to bring attention to her plight as a transgender woman. Well, she certainly got attention. Don’t mess with her!!

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!!





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, oldest US gay bar to close, Belgium gay Prime Minister, gay house burned down in Iraq

19 06 2010

A gay bar in Fairfield ,Connecticut that has been open for 71 years will be closing shop. The owner, 57, said the new landlords have doubled the rent and it is just not profitable anymore. He bought it in 1989 after going there since he was 21. Before the 70’s it was a refuge for gays and in the 70’s it was the center of gay life in the area. In the 80’s it was there during the AIDS crisis and also open to women and brought gays and lesbians closer together. For many young people it was the first gay bar they visited and it is a real shame it will be closing.

Belgium might get its first gay Prime Minister ,socialist di Rupo. The biggest Party though in the elections were not the socialists but the New Flemish Alliance, a party that wants to separate Flanders from Wallonia. They do wanna make a coalition with the socialists and that leader is french-speaking Di Rupo. Does not seem to make sense but the reasoning might be that making someone President that most Flemish people do not like makes the chance of a separation even bigger.Sort of a trap. I can kind of understand Flanders though. They are much richer and have to basically support the poor Walloniers. I mean who would you pick, Dutch people or French. That is basically the question.

Police has set fire on a house in Iraq where 2 gay men, a lesbian woman and 2 transgender people lived. The people living there were arrested and one might suspect that they are being tortured as we speak. Since the arrest of Saddam Hussein 720 LGBT were arrested and/or killed. Horrible.

Some fun to end the day. Every year there is a 7-day AIDS cycle ride through California to raise money for HIV/AIDS. I once saw a documentary about this and it is touching to see people with HIV, volunteer and other people work together to achieve fantastic goals. For a few guys the biking was not tiring enough and they made a very sweet clip for Katy Perry’s song “California Gurls.”





Gay news, gay couple holds kiss-in at restaurant, Mark Kirk outed, first gay marriage Portugal, nude transgenders in Delaware

7 06 2010

A gay couple from Chicago were discriminated at restaurant La Fiesta Azteca last month for holding hands and kissing a few times. The owner asked them to leave citing his religious beliefs and the fact the restaurant was family friendly. They did not wanna pay because they did not finish their food but the owner demanded their money. Yesterday 100 people had a kiss-in at the restaurant to protest this. While I think it is not necessary to be super affectionate in a family restaurant for anyone,gay or straight this had solely to do with the fact these man were gay and then it is something to protest against indeed.

Mike Rogers is an outing blogger that has a 100% success rate in his outings so far. This time he is going after Mark Kirk, an Illinois Republican. Kirk has voted numerous times against gay right and denied he is gay himself, saying people only think so because he got divorced. No mr Kirk, people think so because a purse falls out of your mouth every time you open it and because 2 men have claimed to have had sex with you and Rogers met you and saw you interact with gay men on a specific way. Even though I could not understand a life in the closet I think it is fine as long as you are not a closeted homophobe.

Today the first gay marriage in Portugal was sealed. Two divorced women in their 30’s that have been together since 2003 tied the knot in Lisbon. As a result of a decision in April by the president and parliament Portugal follows the Netherlands, Belgium, Norway, Sweden, Spain, South Africa and Canada in making same-sex marriages legal. And lives have not changed that much in those countries since.

At Rehoboth Beach in Delaware several transgender women in the process of becoming full women removed their tops while sunbathing. After complaints patrol came and asked them to cover up and after first refusing eventually they agreed, but they were pissed.Women are not allowed to show their breast which I think is stupid but that is the rule. So the transgenders should follow suit and act like ladies and cover up. I mean you wanna become a woman or not??





Gay news, Malai gay couple sentence, Tranny Republican congress candidate!, celebrities(James Bond/Harry Potter

19 05 2010

The 2 Malawi men that where jailed last december for celebrating their engagement with plans of marrying this year were found guilty and might be sentenced to 14 years in jail and hard labor. According to the court they are guilty of rude obscenities and unnatural acts. The courts and people of Malawi do not want to be like western counties they say. Maybe the western countries should stop sending them millions of dollars, see how that goes then.

Donna Milo, formerly Ed would like to be the next Congresswoman for Fort Lauderdale. To do that she has to win the Republican primary in August first, yep she is a Republican!. She is anti-government, pro small business and thinks the oil spill is just a mishap. She is also a total believer in America. Hope for her the people of Florida believe in her….

Johnny Galecki, mostly known as Darlene’s boyfriend on Roseanne David denied being gay on the View, but also said he never responded to rumors about it before because he believes it is not something offensive. Good thinking.

Daniel Craig, aka James Bond was seen in a gay bar in LA called Roosterfish. Of course some media have said they saw him kiss a guy outside on a street corner, but I think he is just a straight men very comfortably with his sexuality. He is european not american…

Daniel Radcliffe, aka Harry Potter is the Ambassador for the Trevor Group, an organization trying to prevent LGBT teen suicide. He made a nice little clip for them





Transgender chicken??

11 05 2010

The Italian rooster Gianni from Tuscany started his life as a stallion, crowing at his farm surrounded  by his hens. When a fox raided the farm though and all the hens died, Gianni thought it was time for a change. A sex-change. Very shortly after the raid, Gianni started laying eggs and tying to hatch them. This has baffled scientist and they are studying his DNA to see what causes the change. They think it may be a primitive species survival gene, Gianni wanted his line ensured and that meant he had to become a hen. Very interesting.
