The Truth

Interesting Quote: Stephen Moyer

Alex (Skarsgard) and I have been pushing for an Eric-Bill love scene for a long time, but they always said no. But our dream would be for my football team, West Ham United, to play his Swedish team, and would end up in some match-up that Bill and Eric happen to be able to get to.


What in the F*ck? A Sharp increase in Unprotected Sex among Gay Men

WTF? Why is this on the rise again?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, men are having unprotected anal sex a lot more than before. In fact, the numbers rose almost 20% from 2005 to 2011. And according to the 2011 survey, most of these men don't know the H.I.V. status of the other guy.

Really? We are here again? I know a lot of this has to with self-esteem and other personal issues, but please fam, think of your lives and others!

These numbers can't continue to grow! They can't!

Go here for more on this disturbing news.

Interesting Quote: Alec Baldwin on his Firing

"Martin Bashir's on the air, and he made his comment on the air! I dispute half the comment I made If I called him 'cocksucking maggot' or a 'cocksucking motherfucker'... 'faggot' is not the word that came out of my mouth. That I know. But you've got the fundamentalist wing of gay advocacy— Rich Ferraro and Andrew Sullivan—they're out there, they've got you. Rich Ferraro, this is probably one of his greatest triumphs. They killed my show. And I have to take some responsibility for that myself."

Just let it go, Boo-Boo.


Who Asked for This? Another Friday the 13th Reboot

Just when you thought it was safe to believe this series was over... This happens.

Paramount promised another installment of Friday The 13th in March 13, 2015. Yes, another one. Why? Child I don't know, I don't know.

But the word is, they are going the found footage route, which SUXXXX! Paranormal Activity has abused this format, and ran it to the ground. I hope this is not true. I hope this is a bad rumor. But, Hell, they are bring this back so who knows, right?

Damn, this kinda blows.

10 Things I get from the Trailer of HBO's LOOKING

So the full trailer is out and this is what I see so far

  1. Looking for love in a big city is hard. We know because we followed Carrie Bradshaw for 6 years.
  2. There's no life in LA? Interesting.
  3. Hipsters have replaced the Gays in San Francisco (Invasion of the Body Snatchers is Real!)
  4. English guys are better as advise givers, or spiritual guides. Just ask Buffy about Giles.
  5. There's a lot of White gays in SF.
  6. Hot guys still go to bathhouses.
  7. Do you need a beard to be Gay?
  8. The lead character is the stereotypical 'Hopeless Romantic', just like Noah, Carrie, Michael, Joan and most other lead characters. Will his HR be different or sappy?
  9. SF is cloudy.
  10. There's possibility with this series. Hopefully, it will challenge us.

More Doctor Who 50th Anniversary

Did you see it?

A New App will provide STD test results

In hopes to make dating apps somewhat safe for play, an app called Hula will reveal STD statuses of the users.

Here's more:
 Last month it announced that it was partnering with the gay dating app MISTER, which has a geolocator that helps men find other men by location. MISTER is currently publicizing the Hula service on its app and encouraging users to tap it to find local testing centers and obtain test results. MISTER is also encouraging users to link to Hula from within their profiles, making their test results available to online “friends.” Verified test results on gay sex apps would be a big change from current approaches, where it is common for individuals to self-report that they are HIV-free on their profiles. “In the not too distant future you’ll be able to see a badge on someone’s dating profile showing they’ve verified STD status by Hula,” says Hula founder and CEO, Ramin Bastani. “That can help you make better decisions about how you want to connect.”
This could be a good thing, hopefully they will get with Adam 4 Adam, Grindr, and BCS

New Book: Legendary: Inside the House Ballroom Scene

The new book, Legendary: Inside the House Ballroom Scene captures pictures from the NY ball scene. For over 30 years, the LGBT communities of color have been immersed in the power and fierceness of the Houses and "children" of the ball.

This book highlights the events and people who keeps the fire burning.

Here's a description from the book's developer, Gerard H. Gaskin:
“The balls are a celebration of black and Latino urban gay life. They were born in Harlem out of a need for black and Latino gays to have a safe space to express themselves. Balls are constructed like beauty and talent pageants. The participants work to redefine and critique gender and sexual identity through an extravagant fashion masquerade. Women and men become fluid, interchangeable points of departure and reference, disrupting the notion of a fixed and rigid gender and sexual self. My images try to show a more personal and intimate beauty, pride, dignity, courage, and grace that have been painfully challenged by mainstream society. All of this happens at night in small halls in cities all over the country. These photographs, taken in New York, Philadelphia, Richmond, and Washington, D.C., show us different views of these spaces as they are reflected in the eyes of house and ball members who perform what they wish these cities could be.”

Harry Reid invokes the Nuclear Option

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has taken off his earrings, folks. After the multiple filibuster foolishness from the GOP, Harry went "Nuclear"! He moved for Senate to vote on passing most executive and judicial nominees by a simple majority vote.

And they did, 52 to 48. So now, they need 51 votes. You know the GOP is pissed, but that's what they get for abusing the system. Funny, they always talk about the poor abusing system... Anywho, the rules are in place.

Here's his speech before the vote

We almost had the 1st Openly Gay NFL Player... So, What Happened?

Word on the street is we almost had a NFL player come out to the world last spring... But the plans fell apart.

According to the Bleacher Report, the player were set to make this happen, and then, POOF! Nothing.

What went wrong? Well, many teams were are not ready. The process could take a lot and some teams didn't have the efficient tools for success. Also, several teams passed on the player, making it challenging to move forward positively.

One Million Moms vs Kmart

I knew it!

One Million Moms are pissed about the Kmart Jingle Balls ad. They quickly took to their website and penned a stupid letter.

Here's a piece of it:
The title of the current ad is "Show Your Joe," and Kmart includes sexual content during a Christmas hand bell choir performance. The commercial focuses on several men wearing Joe Boxer underwear thrusting in a sexualized way to the tune of Jingle Bells. They start gyrating and shaking themselves instead of the hand bells, intending to make their "bells" ring in song - which is highly inappropriate. 
The commercial ends: "Shop Your Way, Joe Boxer, Kmart. Get In Get More Christmas." 
Normally, we do not provide a link since One Million Moms does not want to contribute to this filth being spread around even more, but we made an exception this time to show how ridiculous and disgusting this ad really is. The link to the commercial is provided here for reference only so you will have the information you need to voice your concern. If you would rather not watch the video clip, you may take our word on it, knowing this is not the first or second time Kmart has aired offensive commercials.
Ladies, get over it and enjoy the cute guys jingling.

Interesting Quote: Scott Lively on Anti-Gay Violence In Russia

“Russia does have nationalists, these are Nazis, the same as I wrote in the book ‘The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality and the Nazi Party,’ that’s the same thing. The guys that are beating up gays in Russia and it’s not any more prevalent than it ever has been really and it isn’t all that prevalent at all—but the ones that are doing it are butch homosexuals who are beating up effeminate homosexuals, the same thing that happened in Germany; this is gay on gay crime, at least that is what it appears to be.”

So, it's gay on gay crime?

NOM is 2.7M in Debt

Guess what?

NOM is in a hole. After posting their 2012 tax form, we learned that NOM is $2.7M in debt. It took some prying from HRC, but now, we see the whole bloody mess.

Here are some pieces to note via Buzzfeed:
  • There are mysterious donors on the list
  • The organization raised nearly $14.5 million in contributions, with the bulk of it — more than $9.4 million — going to the political advocacy arm 
  • The advocacy arm also reported receiving more than $1.6 million in reimbursement of expenses
  • The largest donor to NOM was a person who gave the organization’s political advocacy arm more than $2.6 million. Another donor gave $1.9 million to the political advocacy arm, while a third gave $1.5 million.
  • The political advocacy arm — a 501(c)(4) organization — reported more than $13 million in expenses, with the education arm — a 501(c)(3) organization — reporting a little less than $3.5 million in expenses.
  • The organization contributed more than $1 million to the ballot referendum campaigns in Maryland and Washington, as well as to the campaign for a marriage amendment in Minnesota. The organization gave more than $1 million to the “NOM ME Fund,” presumably its contribution to fighting the Maine marriage equality initiative.
Interesting pieces, I want to know who still donating all of this big money?

Did Lady Gaga's ARTPOP Flop?

Lady Gaga's ARTPOP didn't meet expectations.

Besides the big promotion and Gaga twittering like crazy, the CD will only hit around 260,000 copies. That's over 75% less than "Born This Way", which sold 1.1 million copies in its first week.

And the promo campaign took a hit too. Interscope Records spent $25 million to promote the CD. That's a lot dough, yo. Her sales also fall short from the other girls on the block. Miley Cyrus’ “Bangerz” hit 270,000 and Katy Perry’s “Prism” debuted with 286,000 first-week sales.

So is this considered a flop? Well, yes and no. She on par with the latest IT girls, but it's a far cry from 1.1 million. Grated those sales were boosted from the Amazon .99 cent gimmick, but still, the numbers don't lie. I guess we will see if this is a trend once Beyonce release her next CD.


Missouri lawmaker wants Governor impeached over Gay Couples' Tax Returns

Interesting... Missouri's House Republican, Nick Marshall, wants to impeach Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon for signing an executive order that accepts joint tax filings from legally married gay couples and other things.

According to Nick, he thinks the governor violated the law; in fact he wrote this statement on Facebook:
I will seek Articles of Impeachment against the Governor. He has openly disregarded the laws and Constitution of the State of Missouri and allowed his administration to do so on multiple occasions. If we are to live under the Rule of Law, he cannot be allowed to remain in office.
If you go to his FB page (click link above) you can see the responses. This act may not come to the floor, considering that the EO follows the state tax law. However, I think Nick is looking for attention.
