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.”

Gay news, soccer for gays?? Ellen ruined Idol, U.N blocked gay rights, anti-gay violence in Amsterdam

5 06 2010

Football.co.uk had an article on why America hates soccer. Reasons are the sport is too multi-cultural, not enough points are scored and it is too “gay”. This last part is because in the U.S the sport is mostly for girls, the fake diving to get a free ball is not manly and the screaming noises made by some players are emasculation. WTF?? I think soccer is not gay at all. There is not even an out top player. But some soccer players do come out in favor of gay men, like Beckham and Ronaldo recently. Maybe that is it??

According to the Christian Newswire Director American Idol was a bit of a flop this year because of good’ old gay Ellen. According to them you cannot make family oriented entertainment with gay people. Parents with good morals will not let their children watch gays. Ok that is why “Finding Nemo” with Ellen was a huge children’s hit. The show just sucked this year and apparently Ellen is not a great judge. But not because she is a lesbian.

The UN proved once more what a useless organization they are by having a Gay Human Rights Commission officially blocked from accreditation. The group was in limbo for years because conservative countries like Egypt, Qatar and Sudan blocked it because other gay groups criticised their anti-gay laws. Apparently the Middle-East and Africa is more important the U.S  and Europe.

Once again there was anti-gay violence against a gay man in Amsterdam last thursday. A man was spit on by 3 foreign(of course!!) teens and when he said something about it, he was called a dirty queer and got punched in the face. Anti-gay violence in Amsterdam got up with 23% in 2009. That is why Geert Wilders’ Party is popular by gays in the Netherlands.






Gay news, Osbournes Pride Marshals in LA, homophobia in Asylum system, Prides in Rumania and Slowakia, lesbians raped in South Africa

24 05 2010

Kelly and Sharon Osbourne will be the Grand Marshals for the Los Angeles Gay Parade. They have spoken out a lot of gay issues and have always been very supportive of the gay community, so great choices. Better than Paris Hilton and her mom e few years back. Saturday Sharon hosted an Equality California event at their mansion to celebrate Harvey Milk Day.

U.K. gay rights group Stonewall just finished an extensive study that shows that almost all gay and lesbian asylum-seekers are returned to their home-country. Many are send back with the words they should just live discreet. Even though in some countries in the middle east and africa gays are really being killed for their sexuality. I totally an in favor of thorough vetting of asylum-seekers also in the Netherlands. But we do accept too many that do not need to be here and can go home and do not accept others that are in danger of their lives and would totally integrate in our society.

While Gay Pride in Rumania this weekend was a success with hundreds of participants and no violence, Rainbow pride in Bratislava was a disaster. Thousand people had accumulated on the centre to celebrate when 80 extremist skinheads started to throw stones and smoke bombs. Police only caught 8!! After the incident police asked for the Pride to be cancelled.

South Africa is all in the centre of the news because of the upcoming World Championships soccer in a few weeks. Groups have asked for people to be aware that a lot of women are being raped there because of their sexuality, being gay is still a big taboo there. One in every two women gets raped and the rate is highest in the slumps of Johannesburg and Capetown. There men still think they can “cure” women and make them straight by fucking them. Repulsive.





Gay news, big star coming out a bore, Baltic Pride will go on!, Gay soccer players??, No privileges for gays in Iowa camping

8 05 2010

People were told that a big star would come out f the closet on may 5. Then it was country singer and one-hit wonder Chely Wright. Who?? Exactly. despicable country singer John Rick asked her back in the day if she was gay. When she said no, he replied: “Good,Thank God.” That kept her a lot longer in the closet.

After I reported yesterday that a court in Lithuania had forbidden Pride to go on there, no the Lithuanian Supreme Court decided different. They said the Government is obligated to defend the rights of those who want to assembly, even members of a minority group. Hope it will all go without violence this weekend.

In Spain media is going all crazy about a pic that was shot of 2 Barcelona football players in a very intimate moment against on of the player’s car. Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Gerard Pique are being very tender. Both are linked to women and they could just be very comfortable in their sexuality but who knows. Would be nice if eventually some soccer players come out.

Iowa lawmaker Senator Merlin Bartz, a Republican does not want to see gay couples and their kids recognized as families by the state’s park system. Rates are the same but as a family you can put up more than 1 tent. He thinks everything should stay the same as it is and gay families are no real families.





Gay news; Johnny Weir; gay marriage saves straight marriage, anti-gay Rome

5 09 2009

Openly gay figure skater Johnny Weir, a medal winner at the World Championships last year and a big contender to be part of the American team for the Olympics this year had this to say about suggestions to “butch up” men’s figure skating. He thinks it’s a ridiculous idea because he loves the glittery costumes, getting his hair and make-up done and his prettiness. Hard to argue with that!! haha

You constantly hear anti-gay marriage supporters saying that gay marriage destroys their straight marriage. Well, after 5 years of legalized gay marriage in Massachusetts, the state’s divorce rates have plummeted to pre World War 2 numbers. And they have the lowest divorce rate in the country. So basically gay marriage saves opposite marriage!!

Anti-gay violence has increased in Rome a lot in recent months. This week escalating in the throwing of 2 bomb letters in a bar in the gay neighborhood of Rome. Several people were injured and one had to be taken to the hospital. Many people including the mayor of Rome are worried about this trend. One former PM goes as far as to say Rome is not a safe city for gay people anymore. Such a pity of a great city. I have to say that I did not notice anything anti-gay about Rome while I was there with my boyfriend but maybe the climate has changed in a few years.





Gay news; Hubby Hubby ice-cream, Whoopi and crazy Fred Phelps church members

1 09 2009

In Vermont since yesterday gay couples can get married and what better way to celebrate this then with some tasty ice-cream. Ice-cream maker Ben&Jerry’s changed their popular flavor Chubby Hubby into Hubby Hubby for a month.

Whoopi Goldberg showed again what a true supporter she is for the gay community. Earlier this year she was at the big anti prop-8 demonstration in New York and now she recorded a message for the citizens of Hungary to make sure the gay pride there will be free of violence. Last year 10 people were injured and people threw eggs and feces at Pride participants. Also a big congrats for Whoopi and the cast of the View for finally winning that Emmy as an ensemble for best day-time talk show hosts. I went to the View once, without reservation, got in, was placed on the first row and saw all the gals from close-by. That was a fun morning. The Netherlands now has their own ” the View” since a week  called  “the table of 5” and even though it’s fun, it’s not as good as the original.

Members of Fred Phelps’ Westboro Baptist Church, basically a church devoted to hating Jews, soldiers, Sweden, America, but mostly gays were at it again. This time they protested at an American Idol concert against gay Adam Lambert. With their God hates Fags signs and protests at dead soldiers funeral (according to them they deserve to die because America is pro-gay) what they do is actually helping the gay community. Even not pro-gay people want to distance themselves from such crazy hate speech.
