Around the World: Malta Bans Conversion Therapy, Greece Disallows LGBT Discrimination, China Now More Tolerant Than Ever

Around the World: Malta Bans Conversion Therapy, Greece Disallows LGBT Discrimination, China Now More Tolerant Than Ever The United States may be a bit behind the times on this issue, but thankfully Malta’s leading the charge against conversion “therapy” in Europe! They became the first European country to ban ex-gay therapy. That and more in our look at good news from around the world! Following a heated debate, the Greek Parliament passed a bill banning discrimination based on race, ethnic origin, or sexual orientation in the workplace. Malta became the first European country to ban conversion therapy as the parliament unanimously passed the Affirmation of Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity, and Gender Expression Bill.

Cadillac Wanted a Feel Good TV Ad Starring White Supremacists

Cadillac Wanted a Feel Good TV Ad Starring White Supremacists The election of Donald Trump has increased the prominence of the so-called “alt-right” (a euphemism for white supremacists and neo-Nazis), so much so that Cadillac recently issued a casting call for “any and all real alt-right thinkers/believers” for a “beautiful artistic” ad about “standing together as a union.” A feel good commercial with racists? Nice. Super horrified that @Cadillac is planning on including neo-nazis in a “feel good” campaign featuring “all walks of life.” Unacceptable. pic.twitter.com/e32Vb10RxA — gina young (@ohginayoung) December 10, 2016 It makes sense why Cadillac would want some of that sweet Nazi gold: There’s lots to go ...

A Gay Man’s Opinion of Election ’16

This story has a different ending than what I had hoped and planned for originally. It’s been hard not to comment and curse at the chaos happening in our country, the United States of America. To be quite honest it’s been difficult to focus on because it’s all so ludicrous. I’m a true democrat and I voted for Hillary Clinton. She is and was my choice for POTUS. Hillary has the most job experience of anyone who has ever ran for the office before and was/is more prepared than any of her opponents. If Bernie Sanders had become our party’s nominee I would fully support him and what he wanted to do. I didn’t know him going in but after ...

Interesting Quote: Tom Ford

“I think it would help them understand women. It’s such a vulnerable position to be in, and it’s such a passive position to be in. And there’s such an invasion, in a way, that even if it’s consensual, it’s just very personal. I think there’s a psyche that happens because of it that makes you understand and appreciate what women go through their whole life, because it’s not just sexual, it’s a complete setup of the way the world works, that one sex has the ability to literally—and is expected to and is wanted to—but also there’s an invasion. And I think that that’s something most men do not understand at all.”Tom thinks all men need to be penetrated... sexually source

Megan Mullally All But Guarantees 10 New Episodes of ‘Will & Grace’ In an interview with Pride Source, Will & Grace actress Megan Mullally (who played the show’s tart-tongued party girl Karen) pretty much guaranteed that we’ll soon see 10 new episodes of the beloved gay sitcom saying, “We’re not rehearsing or anything like that.

Best Thanksgiving Dinner Ever

Happy Thanksgiving! I just walked into the house and the smell is amazing. My wonderful husband deboned a turkey, stuffed it with cornbread dressing gig, bound her back up and into the oven to cook. It’s primarily for me. It’s not something he would do normally but he knows that I absolutely love turkey and dressing with all the trimmings. Always have! I truly do have the best husband in the world. I agree with your thoughts. We planned on having a few people over today who sadly couldn’t make it for various reasons so we’ve delivered plates to them and enjoyed a nice quiet dinner together and a bottle of the new Beaujolais Nouveau. And dinner is served… I actually worked for ...

It’s Time to Travel: Canada Decriminalizes Anal Sex!

It’s Time to Travel: Canada Decriminalizes Anal Sex! Sometimes laws stay on the books even when they’re rarely-if-ever enforced and need to be cleaned out. Canada’s Justice Minister, Jody Wilson-Raybould is behind one of those cleanings — he announced the Criminal Code of Canada will be updated to decriminalize consensual anal sex. That and more in our look at political news around the globe! In the US election, several openly LGBT candidates won or kept their positions, including Oregon’s new governor Kate Brown, the first openly bisexual person elected to govern. Scottish politicians crossed party lines to form the LBGTI+ Cross Party Group (CPG) to address issues “largely absent from the mainstream agenda” as well as health, education, equality, ...

Someone Turned RuPaul’s Drag Queens into Major Arcana Tarot Cards

Someone Turned RuPaul’s Drag Queens into Major Arcana Tarot Cards Part of what makes RuPaul’s Drag Race so damned irresistible is how easily it combines with other pop-culture phenomena; for example, remember when someone mashed-up the Drag Race queens with Pokémon and Steven Universe? Well now some artistic genius has turned RuPaul’s most famous queens into major arcana in the tarot deck. The major arcana are basically tarot power cards. Whenever a tarot reader deals out a major arcana, it suggests a  a powerful person or life-change that played a significant role in recent events. Drag Race fans know that every queen is a force to be reckoned with, but now we’ve got the cards to prove it! http://gaybrofart....

Palm Springs Pride 2016 in Review

Another Pride in Palm Springs down for the record books. The annual festival began on Friday, however, it’s super gay in this city every day so that’s that. Saturday I ran downtown to check out the stage we were performing on and to support my fellow entertainers. The sunshine was coming down from the skies above so I knew to dress accordingly for our show on Sunday. Afterwards I ran over to a last rehearsal with my dancers and then back home to pull together ensembles for my gigs. I don’t have a ton of people knocking down my door to perform so I create these opportunities for myself. Here’s my story and I’m sticking to it! After fighting all evening with ...

There’s Now A Bi-Racial Gay Couple in ‘Magic: The Gathering’ The massively popular deck-building game Magic: The Gathering (MTG) has just released new commander decks for mutiplayer matches, and one of the decks is lead by a gay military couple named Kyanaios and Tiro of Meletis.

Unchecked for generations, his power grew as he carved out a mighty empire. Kynaios and Tiro, joined by their love for one another and for freedom, rose ...

Interesting Quote: Erick Erickson

Donald Trump got Hillary Clinton elected President. Then calling her a nasty woman during the final thirty minutes of the debate drove away the last few women who were supporting him.You know it is bad when Laura Ingraham, one of the chief priestesses of the Cult of Trump, went on television and, when introduced as a Trump supporter, said she supported his ideas, then openly said he should said he’d accept the results of the election.Republicans need to do all they can in the next three weeks to preserve the House and Senate. Because Donald Trump himself just handed Hillary Clinton the White House.source

Undecided Voter? Madonna Will Blow You To Vote Hillary!

Undecided Voter? Madonna Will Blow You To Vote Hillary! It’s hard to imagine that anyone’s still an undecided voter, but hey — last week, Ken Bone got famous for being one. But if there’s something that’s going to push anyone off the fence, it’s probably this: Madonna opened for Amy. Msg @Madonna pic.twitter.com/qcfNAH4TOm — Joe (@jgra555) October 19, 2016 That’s right — if you vote for Hillary, Madonna will give you a blow job. She made the claim while opening for Amy Schumer at Madison Square Garden. Given that Madonna wrote the book on Sex, you probably know that she knows what she’s doing… but, of course, if you’re not sure between Hillary and Trump, you ...

Solange’s “F.U.B.U.” Lends a Voice to Black Queers

Solange’s “F.U.B.U.” Lends a Voice to Black Queers In her number one album, A Seat At The Table, singer/songwriter and fashion muse Solange Knowles expresses the Black experience beautifully in a sonic journey of grief, frustration, and joy. In one track in particular, “F.U.B.U.”, the songstress rejoices and makes a nod towards Black queers; it’s an outspoken R&B track that, like the popular ’90s streetwear brand of the same name, lets White people know that it’s music “for us, by us”. Not only is the song about the protection of Blackness from leering White audiences, but it also inadvertently lends a voice to Black queers. Solange croons, “All my ...
