Gay news, Anita bitch back, gay basher in NY gets nothing, Today Show and the gays, Broadway Bares

10 07 2010

The original Carrie Prejean, anti-gay beauty queen Anita Bryant will be back in the public eye. She will be in Yukon, Oklakoma for a patriotic performance. It is basically for a group against muslims and gays(cause they are similar?!) It will also coincide with the local Tea Party. Prejean ,who of course is not nearly as bad as Bryant was, got married last weekend to pro football player San Diego quarterback Kyle Boller. She did it in style, at the hotel of anti-gay Doug Manchester.

Driton Nicaj assaulted 3 gay man in 2009 and only got 45 days, less than Lindsay Lohan. Two men required stitches and one men even a metal plate in his skull while he used anti-gay slurs. Apparently the judges think this is not severe. Unbelievable. And why is it so often in civilized places like the Netherlands and New York a non local sounding name?? Those people should go back to their own countries if they cannot be civil in ours.

The Today Show got a lot of slack from pro-gay people by not letting gay couples enter their ” Modern Wedding Contest”. They eventually agreed it was not fair and opened the contest for gays as well. Now of course the right-wing bigots are all up in arms. The American Family Association for instance wants people to boycott the Today show from now on for promoting this “sinful behavior.” Poor Today Show, can’t do it right for everyone. But they did the right thing in my eyes.

Broadway Bares is a yearly show from Broadway Cares in which stars of the theatre strip and dance for HIV/AIDS. They raised an amazing 1 million dollars this year. I have never been but after seeing this footage, count me in for next year!!

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, Lady Elton/Rush, Cali IRS to recognize gay couples, straight men more accepting of gays, fake gay weddings in NY

6 06 2010

Anti-gay conservative Rush Limbaugh is marrying for the 4th time(Viva Viagra) and none-other-then Elton John is performing at his wedding in Palm Beach. Elton gets a million bucks for it, but still. I thought he had better morals, he does not need that money.

The IRS in California will start to recognize gay couples as a pair for tax purposes. This means that income earned by registered domestic partners will be treated as community property income for federal income taxes. Suppose that 1 partner makes 100K and the other 60K, they used to each file their own. Now they can each report 80K and this new law could reduce federal taxes for some domestic partners. Back in 2006 the IRS was against this law. A small step in the right direction.

Fo the first time in history the percentage of straight people morally accepting gay relationships has gone over 50%. The biggest change is in straight men 18-40 where is has gone up almost 20% in 2 years. Quite stunning. The NY times has 3 theories for this. 1 they know more and more out gay men so it is harder to discriminate. 2 men got more and more at ease with things that are “different” and see it is not a disaster like previously thought.3 Virulent homophobes are being exposed as gay a lot lately and men do not wanna be associated with this. Anti-gay is the old gay. Not cool. I think 1 is the most important.There is still a long way to go though because accepting of gays as an idea is a lot easier than accepting the act of being gay. So it is fine as long as they do not have to think about gay sex.

NY is hoping to get extra money by offering fake gay wedding ceremonies for partners that want to “dignify their partners status with a ceremony similar to real weddings.” Only 2 people showed up friday on the first day. Not a surprise, how can it be with dignity if it does not mean anything. It is almost an insult and copy-catting Las Vegas.
