Gossip, Ke$ha, Johnny Weir, Perez Hilton, Jackass a jackass??

17 06 2010

Ke$ha says that after taken her dogs out to poop she sometimes keep the full plastic bags to wrap them up for people as presents. Maybe she visited my sister-in-law who found a turd in the dressing room at the store she works.

Johnny Weir might follow in the footsteps of his arch-nemesis Evan Lysacek and will be on the next series of Dancing with the Stars. He already has a partner. Karina Smirnoff is a big fan and wants to dance with him. You will be sure he will bring the sparkle in his outfits.

Perez Hilton is in some trouble. He posted a pic on his twitter from Miley Cyus getting out of her car implying she did not have underwear on. After Miley was pissed and people said this could be considered child pornography, Perez quickly removed the pic. He now says she was wearing underwear to downplay the controversy and all the new Miley posts on his website have been super sweet. Not a smart move by him but this is hardly pornography.

Jackass star Bam Margera was beaten with a baseball bat by a crazy woman outside of his bar in West Chester, PA. The woman, his neighbor was arrested and Bam had to go to the hospital. Apparently she constantly calls the police, threatened Bam and his wife before. She calls him a jackass and uses the oldest trick in the book. The race-card. Hope the woman serves some time in jail

Gay news, Expedia opens gay store, Harvey Milk dayMoscow Pride satanic, Gay blood ban

22 05 2010

Travel site Expedia.com has opened a Gay Travel Store on their website since yesterday on http://www.expedia.com/daily/gaytravel/default.asp. They partner with International Gay&Lesbian Travel Association to help find and identify gay-friendly hotels all over the world. I just had a look and it is pretty cool except for the fact that with hotels in for instance NY or Amsterdam I do not understand why some hotels are listed as gay-friendly and others not…. What qualifies as being gay-friendly? I probably keep (small)luxury hotels of the world as my number 1 but this might be a good alternative.

Today is the first Harvey Milk Day. It is only an official holiday in California but all over the U.S there are parties and events. As most of you know he was the first elected openly gay official in the U.S and was killed shortly after. People that do not know the importance of Harvey, should watch the movie Milk or one of the documentaries made about his life. Celebrations in his beloved Castro neighborhood will be biggest but also in LA, San Diego and NY marches and events for equality will be held. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will kick off a fundraiser in SF on Market Street. Yesterday she promised DADT would be over by the end of the year. Hope she can keep her promise. Below Milk Screenwriter Dustin Lance Black about the importance of Harvey Milk.

For the 5th year in a row Moscow Gay Pride was banned by Mayor Yury Luzhkov. According to him it is satanic and he will do everything to stop the event May 29. Moscow authorities have also blocked the website promoting the pride, GayRussia.Ru. How democratic.

There might come an end to the FDA approved ban on gays giving blood donations. The Department of Health and Human services wants to hear presentations and engage in deliberations on the topic. Since september 1985 men who had sex with men(even once) were not allowed to donate. This change would be about time, there are tons of monogamous gay men who are HIV-negative and can donate.





10 most over-hyped things to do in NYC

15 05 2010

The travel site concierge made a list of things that you should not do in NYC. I have done all and do not agree with most of it.

1 Hansom Cab Ride through Central Park. Love it. Great way to see the park quickly.

2 Dining at Tavern on the Green. Does not even exist anymore, food was not great, atmosphere was.

3 Eating on Times Square. Love Ruby Foo’s, W Hotel restaurants.

4 Comedy Shows on Times Square. Saw Mario Cantone at Caroline’s, was a lot of fun.

5 Shopping at Century 21. BF does not like it, but my sister bought a fabulous expensive coat for a lot less there.

6 Nightclubbing in Meatpacking District. Did it with my girlfriends to straight clubs. Not too bad, not great either though.

7 Pedicabs through Midtown. Expensive but fun

8 Eating from a hot dog-cart. Cheap and fairly tasty.

9 Visiting Empire State Building. The line is enormous sometimes and then it is not worth it but other days it is only 10 minutes and then it is fantastic.Empire State view

10 Cupcakes at Magnolia Bakery. Maybe  a bit over-hyped but petty damn tasty nonetheless.
