Gay news,the porn star and the senator, Eminem in favor of gay marriage, Iceland rebellious to God, Puerto Rico hate crimes

17 06 2010

Gay twinky porn star and escort Brandon Wilde, 20, had a dinner date with 45-year-old openly gay Republican Senator Paul Koering from Minnesota. Koering gave an interview to a porn blog after Wilde made the news of their date public on Twitter saying he did not think Wilde was making the right choices but that he was a nice guy nonetheless. It only stayed with a dinner and no sex but according to Wilde, Koering wanted more. Koeing has voted against gay marriage(self-hate!!), but told Wilde he wanted to become president and make gay marriage legal in Minnesota. Later on he denied saying that. Going on a date with a young porn star and hoping he won’t talk about certain things is a little naive Mr Koering. I bet Wilde would be the cutest “first lady” ever. I always wanted to become that though!

I always thought (f)Eminem was not a real gay hater like his music implies. There he says he hates fags etc but at the same time he was best buddies with Lady Elton(who seems to like the fake bigots). In a recent interview with the NYT he says he is fine with gay marriage and thinks gays that love another should have the same right to be miserable as straight couples. And he knows what he is talking about!!

According to “ex-gay” minister James Hartline Iceland will be in trouble. After the recent volcano eruption that “almost destroyed the nation according to him” they know voted 49-0 for gay marriage and that combined with having a “satanic” lesbian Prime Minister means they are rebellious and self-destructing. Hartline thinks he is a prophet, I think SHE is crazy.

After the recent brutal hate crimes in Puerto Rico, the government there has empaneled a special investigative committee to collect statistics and end the violence there. In 2002 there was a legislation establishing hasher penalties for crimes based on gender identity or sexual preference but so far nothing was done. At least this is a step in the right direction.

Brussels

3 05 2010

Last weekend me and my boyfriend made a trip to the beautiful capital of Belgium. Even though it is my neighboring country and I have been all over Europe, strangely enough I had only visited Brussels twice before at night, to party. From Amsterdam it is only 1.5 hours with the Thalys and it really feels very different from Holland. The first night I was alone because my hubby was still on his way through Europe to get to Brussels(it was the week after the start of the volcano trouble).I walked over the magnificent Grand Place with numerous intriguing century old buildings. Lots of gold and amazing details. Then a quick bite to eat at a brasserie, duck in a beer broth and later on some of the best ice-cream I ever had, with a gingerbread flavor. After that I had a quick walk though the gay area of Brussels, which was fun. Lots of flirting going on, always good for the ego. I definitely miss that from NY, here where I live in the Netherlands I go weeks without seeing many gays(or none at all) sometimes. Our hotel was the luxurious Rocco Forte Amigo where the beds were very comfortable. Next morning I finally saw my boyfriend and it always feels extra great to see each other after a longer absence. We got some coffee, soft-drinks and sandwiches at a nice little bakery in the sun and planned the rest of our day. First we did some shopping and bought a cool retro orange/black messenger bag for myself and a new digital camera. We had lots of pictures so shoot and nothing to do it with at the time(2 of them are in NY) so it was a necessity. Then it was time for lunch already and we went to a small place recommended by the concierge of the hotel and it was phenomenal. My boyfriend had the best casserole with lots of meat and beans he ever had( and he had a lot) For myself there was rabbit rillette as a starter and sole in a creamy sauce for my main. After that it was off for a long walk to burn some calories, through the picturesque city center. Beautiful churches, pedigreed lawns/parks and the palace of the Belgian royal family. Not as pretty as the British one but still worth seeing. At night we had reservations at a 2-star Michelin restaurant. That means in general for foodies like us a good time but this was one of the most mediocre Michelin star restaurants we ever ate. The amuses were uninspiring, the fish-sauce too fat and the sweetbreads a bit bland. The silverware was very chic as was the interior but the service was not up to par while they were pretending to be very formal. Empty glasses were not filled on time and the bottles were out of reach for us, napkins were not refolded after toilet visits nor did people get any assistance sitting down. Don’t get me wrong the food was ok and some of the formalities are not important to me at all, but expectations from a 2 star are pretty big. We had a great night together nonetheless The next day the weather was again very nice (sunny and 70’s) and after a nice breakfast at one of the many outside cafe’s surrounding the Grand Place we thought it was time for some culture and went to 2 museums. The first one was a beer museum, perfect for my beer-loving boyfriend. The showed how some of the famous Belgian beer was brewed in the past and present and it ended with a tasty local beer. Not too shabby huh? Belgium is famous for his comic books and I read many of them as a kid. The cartoon-museum featured some of my favs like Suske and Wiske and Tintin but I expected a bit more. It is worthwhile for families but I would not recommend it for only adults. Then we walked fo another hour or so, bought some of the famous Belgian chocolate for family and had a farewell lunch at out spot from saturday afternoon. Another hearty feast was served and eaten to the last little crumb. All in all I would totally recommend people to visit Brussels, maybe in combination with the medieval beauty Brugge for a long weekend.





News, gossip, gay,political

19 04 2010

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.





Iceland volcano ash plume causes huge travel problems

16 04 2010

The volcano is still giving off ash and archeological researchers think it can be days or weeks until it is done. Whether it causes airplane delays for that long depends on the wind. The 3 biggest airports in Europe are closed, London Heathrow, Charles de Gaulle in Paris and Frankfurt, Germany.(Amsterdam’s Schiphol as well). My boyfriend is marketing in europe this week and already had huge problems. Yesterday he was supposed to fly to London from Frankfurt but now he has to go with the train to Brussels today(yesterday all was booked)and then take the Eurostar train to London. And my brother-in-law is stuck in Tokyo. Lots of people are stranded on the airport or have to find expensive hotels. Most hotels around the airports are already fully booked. Volcanic ash in a plane’s engine becomes molten glass and clogs the, causing complete shutdown.
