Leonardo da Vinci As A Gay Man; Doctor Who Sprinkled Cocaine On His Penis; Gray-Haired Couple Have Public Sex;

Leonardo da Vinci As A Gay Man

Every year I see Walt Whitman’s birthday trending on Twitter, and every year the straight people on Twitter (Twitter is very heteronormative) ignore the fact that there’s proof he could have been in a long term gay relationship, that his poetry is probably laced with hidden gay references, and that he could have been gay. They whitewash it by ignoring it, as if it never happened. Just the possibility alone seems to freak them out. Some will tell you they don’t like labels…at the expense of gay history and culture. So here’s a link to an article that talks about depicting Leonardo da Vinci as a gay man. We’ve all heard the rumors and heard the stories, but I often see da Vinci whitewashed, too, so this is unique.

“He was a real outsider for those times. He was an illegitimate child, gay, vegetarian and left-handed,” said Eleonora Andreatta, the Head of Drama for RAI, the production company behind the show
Here’s the link.  There are a few good images. 

Doctor Who Sprinkled Cocaine On His Penis

This is a follow up to a story I linked to a while back.

Dr Andreas David Niederbichler is on trial in the city of Magdeburg, in the German state of Saxony-Anhalt following the death of a hairdresser named only as Yvonne M.

Here’s the link. He allegedly did this to other women, too. 

Gray-Haired Couple Have Public Sex

This isn’t just your ordinary public sex, the kind where people take risks but don’t actually get caught. This is outright sex, in public.

Unverified video, purportedly taken in Benidorm, shows the grey-haired woman brazenly pleasuring her partner as they relax on sun loungers.

You can see the video, here. I think it’s SFW. All private parts are blurred and it’s a mainstream tabloid web site. I think a lot of people are into this, more than are willing to admit.

NYC Gay Bar and Racism; Jake Choi Is Sexually Fluid; A Tinder-like App For Trans People: TRANSR

NYC Gay Bar and Racism

Here’s a story about something that happened at a gay bar in NYC.

Lopez sparked a huge backlash after describing a flyer for “Manster”–a drag night hosted by popular queen Honey Davenport–as “like we’re promoting black night and I don’t like to get into black rink night people cool get the wrong idea and is not good for the businesses.”

Here’s the rest. The comments are interesting. 

Jake Choi Is Sexually Fluid

Here’s another one who’s claiming to be sexually fluid. Looks more like a promotional piece to me, but he’s damn cute.

Choi, who used to bartend at gay parties before getting his big break in Hollywood, says it wasn’t until he played a gay man in the 2015 film Front Cover that he finally made any clear determinations about his sexual orientation.

Here’s the link. You should really check out the comments with this. It’s a good discussion. 

A Tinder-like App For Trans People: TRANSR

Here’s something I’m sure many will be thrilled to see. It’s a dating/hook up app designed for trans people. I think it’s the first of its kind. 

‘We were inspired to create TRANSDR since Tinder started banning transgender women and Craigslist removed its personals,’ Robert told GSN via email.
