Rami Malek Tells a Cute Gay Story at SAG Awards
Even though Rami Malek, who is straight and played a gay character in a recent film, doesn’t know gay stories from personal experience, he told an adorable gay story to a mostly heteronormative crowd at yet another Hollywood red carpet event, the SAG Awards.
Rami played gay Freddie Mercury in the film, Bohemian Rhapsody, and when he was asked, on the Hollywood red carpet, to tell everyone a cute little gay quip about Mercury, this is how he replied:
There was one moment that I hear [Freddie Mercury] took Princess Diana and disguised her as a man and took her into a bar, just so they could have their own fun moment without anybody else being aware. Now, I don’t know if that’s true, this might be an urban legend.
Well, it doesn’t get any better than that. I didn’t even know that Princess Diana dressed up in gay face.
Here’s the rest of this gem.
The Straight Couple Who Believe They Invented Poppers
I never watch Shark Tank, but I have heard of it.
There’s a straight couple who recently went on Shark Tank with their new invention called ‘Boom Boom.’ It’s a nasal inhaler that leaves you feeling ‘tingly and alive.’ I’m not joking.
And it gets even better…
The episode actually aired back in October, but it recently went viral after a gay man shared the clip on Twitter along with the caption: “Did Shark Tank Do Poppers???”
Here’s the link to the article and the video. You have to see this video. This is priceless.
Sidenote: If you don’t know what poppers are, here’s a link for that. For many it’s always been a huge part of gay culture. Not all, but many. And I say that from personal experience.
Criminal Investigation of Chechnya
On a much more somber note, this story made the rounds today.
LGBTI activists are now calling for a full criminal investigation with regard to what’s been happening to LGBTI people there. I’ve been posting about the reports of LGBTI people allegedly being tortured and detained for a long time now.
It’s a Russian activist group called, LGBT Network.
Igor Kochetkov, Executive Director of the LGBT Network, submitted the complaint to the Investigative Committee of Russia.
Here’s the link.
The Guy Who Went From Jock To Bear
I posted about this one before, but it continues to get attention on social media.
It’s about the guy who had a slim, toned body with defined muscles, who decided to change his entire image and become a bear.
To do this, he deliberately gained over 100 pounds.
Here’s the link, with photos of his transition. There are over 66 comments with this one.
Did a Straight Man Rip Off ‘Rent’ From a Lesbian Novel?
I want to make it clear I’m only linking to this story. No comments or opinions from me. This is the first I’ve heard about this.
While Rent was airing live on Fox TV last night, people started tweeting things like this…
But because RENT was stolen from a queer woman’s life and work (Sarah Schulman’s PEOPLE IN TROUBLE),
The excerpt above is part of a tweet you can read in full, here. There are more Tweets like it, too.
It goes into a lot more detail.
21 Photos of London’s Winter Pride
On a much more refreshing note, here’s a link to an article about London’s Winter Pride.
The event is for a good cause as well. It raises money to help LGBTI people who are being persecuted in Chechnya.
It’s is also the first big event of the year in the western world.
Here’s the link. The photos are excellent, and all totally SFW.
9 Dirty Filthy Sex Stories
When I self-censored my book, Chase of a Dream, and I eliminated the sex scenes, I did it for a reason. I wanted to show the know-it-alls that it can be done. In other words, in any erotic romance it’s the story that’s always the main focus, and the love/sex scenes move the story forward. However, if the sex scenes are removed the story should still stand on its own. And that’s why I released an abridged version and an unabridged version of Chase of a Dream. I didn’t do that because I support the theory that sex in books is terrible, and I have no time for those elitists who do.
Even though I could do this with every single novel I’ve ever written…over 100 by now…I don’t intend to ever self-censor again unless I have a valid reason. I do have more than a few gay romance novels without sex. The stories didn’t call for it. But every single case is different, and the author has to have a feeling for it, one way or the other.
With that said, I see nothing wrong with a few harmless little dirty sex stories either. I’m talking about stories that focus mainly on the sex. Especially if they’re very dirty. I applaud them and I support them. It’s total escapism, and it’s really the safest sex there is out there. So that’s why I’m linking to this web site right now. The author of the web site claims these are stories that help her get by when her boyfriend isn’t around.
You can check this out, here. It’s totally discreet and well executed, too. And it’s simple to navigate.
He Wanted a ‘Truncheon’ in His Pants
Here’s an article about penis enlargement. Many men are interested in the topic, and some are actually doing something about it thanks to new advances in medicine.
“These are the men who come to us,” Raheem says. “They are not necessarily small, but they want to feel more confident. In front of women, yes, but in front of other men, too, down the gym, that sort of thing.”
Here’s a link to this one. It’s an interesting read, and it also mentions some of the downfalls and risks involved…both emotional and physical.
Gay Club Promoters Trash Talking Patrons
This is one of those things you don’t expect to see nowadays.
According to this article, one of those circuit parties in Australia allegedly has a photography brief with guidelines about who shouldn’t be highlighted in their online promotional photos. In other words, the people they don’t want you to see.
“messy boys”, “skinny boys”, “boys with bad skin”, and all women.
Here’s the link to more. The comments are few, but they’re very interesting.
Homophobes Go After Pete Buttigieg
Pete Buttigeig just barely announced that he’s running for President, and the homophobes jumped at a chance to go after him with slurs and nasty comments.
You can check out this link. I’m not going to re-print what they said.
Wouldn’t it be fascinating if he could actually pull this off and get elected?
Frankie Grande’s Sexy Naked Photos
I didn’t think Frankie would ever do something like this. But I’m not upset about it either.
Frankie had a birthday last week, so he posted a few naked photos of himself on Instagram in the spirit of celebration. They are actually highly artistic, and well done. Also, SFW.
You can check them out, here. I think they’re beautiful.
Queen’s Brian May Apologizes For Comments About Brian Singer
Apparently, May decided to apologize after he made comments about Brian Singer that sounded as though he was defending Singer. May wanted to make it clear that he was NOT defending Singer.
It’s a long apology, and it’s in response to people who challenged him on social media.
Gay History: Fred Karger Is the First Openly Gay Man to Run For President, Not Pete Buttigieg
It was recently announced that Mayor Pete Buttigieg is going to run for President, and I think that’s fantastic. As a lifelong registered Democrat, he has all my support, and I’m thrilled about it. I hope to be linking to more wonderful news about Buttigieg.
But some of the headlines this week about Buttigieg in the mainstream media have been misleading.
Fact: Fred Karger is actually the first openly gay man to run for President. From Wiki…
Fred S. Karger (born January 31, 1950) is an American political consultant, gay rights activist and watchdog, former actor, and politician. His unsuccessful candidacy for the Republican nomination for the 2012 US Presidential election made him the first openly gay presidential candidate in a major political party in American history.
Back in 2012, I posted extensively on Karger, and I followed him throughout his humble campaign. And I’m not a political person. I did this because I never thought I would see an openly gay man even think about running for President. Here’s a link to all of my posts about Karger running for President.
In addition to running for President, Karger also fought extensively for same sex marriage. And he’s still fighting for gay rights.
I posted this about Karger back in February, 2012…
The two main reasons I keep posting about Fred Karger is because he’s not getting an ounce of mention from the mainstream media and he’s making history as the first openly gay Republican making a bid for the Presidency.
Karger’s candidacy and place on multiple state ballots is historic. He is the first openly gay candidate from a major party to run for President. In Karger’s first contest – last month in New Hampshire – he beat Congresswoman Michele Bachmann by 135 votes.
The links to what I covered here on this blog about Fred Karger are very extensive. And I did it because no one else was doing it, and because I don’t want to see it erased. I find it highly suspect that I’m still doing this 7 years later. I have never been able to get a clear response from anyone as to why the mainstream media totally ignored Fred Karger.
In any event, at least they are recognizing Pete Buttigieg. At least we’ve moved forward to that extent. I’m just as excited to see what Buttigieg does in the future, and I’ll be linking to everything I do see about Buttigieg.
Brian Singer’s 10 Million Dollar Directing Gig
It’s interesting to read that in spite of recent allegations of sex abuse, Hollywood just rewarded Brian Singer with a 10 Million Dollar directing gig.
The producer of Singer’s next film, Avi Lerner, said this…
“I continue to be in development for Red Sonja and Bryan Singer continues to be attached,” Lerner tells the Hollywood Reporter. “The over $800 million Bohemian Rhapsody has grossed, making it the highest grossing drama in film history, is testament to his remarkable vision and acumen.”
Here’s the link. If you do a simple search you can find out a good deal more about Singer. It’s all very transparent.
Rami Malek On Brian Singer
I don’t know much about Rami Malek and I don’t plan to see Bohemian Rhapsody. I only know that Malek is a straight man playing gay in Bohemian Rhapsody, and I started to watch a TV show on Amazon Malek starred in that had something to do with a robot and it was so boring I could barely get through 2 episodes.
In any event, Malek is now speaking up about Brian Singer. Here’s part of what he had to say…
“I didn’t know much about Bryan. I think that the allegations and things were, believe it or not, honestly something I was not aware of, and that is what it is.”
You can check this one out, here. There are plenty of comments at the end, too.
Trevor Donovan in Hallmark’s ‘Snowcoming’
I share things like this because I know a lot of my readers love romance movies and Hallmark shows, and it’s not always easy to find new films nowadays unless we see it mentioned somewhere on social media. So here’s a DVR alert for romance movie fans. Or, you could watch it when it airs.
Trevor Donovan stars as Jake this Saturday, January 26th, in Snowcoming. It will be aired on the Hallmark channel, at 8pm/ 7c. Check your local listings.
Samantha returns home for her town’s winter festival to celebrate her father’s retirement from coaching. Her hopes for a quiet visit are dashed when she discovers NFL quarterback and high school sweetheart Jake is also there. Stars Lindy Booth, Trevor Donovan, Joe Theismann, and Ed Marinaro.
You can check it all out, here. Donovan’s built a nice list of credits doing films like this, plus a few more that aren’t in this particular genre.
Drag Performer Faces Backlash Over Black and Brown Rainbow Stripes
I don’t know much about this one, but I’ve noticed it making the rounds all week.
A drag performer in the UK named Peggy Wessex created a poster with a unicorn that’s vomiting the new brown and black stripes from the rainbow pride flag. And not everyone was thrilled.
“It was meant to be a joke at Manchester Pride who just decided to add the colors,” Wessex said. “So some people think it’s offensive because it’s the black and brown color? The rainbow flag was made so it was inclusive of everyone.”
Here’s the rest. I’ve posted about the black and brown stripes before here on the blog. The concept actually originated right here in Philadelphia in 2017. I see nothing wrong with it, and I always supported adding the brown and black stripes.
Cher Kicks Off New Tour
Cher never stops. And I like that, because I hope…knock wood…to be her age someday and still working as much as possible.
She’s touring the US and Canada, with the ‘Here We Go Again’ tour. Many say this is her most extravagant production ever.
You can check out a few photos, here. She recently dropped her rendition of Dancing Queen, and I bought it at iTunes. I like to listen to things like that in the car with Bluetooth. It’s very good.
He Let His Straight Roommate Bang Him
Here’s a story about a guy who slept with his straight male roommate, and now he’s getting the silent treatment. This happened to me once, and I’m sure it’s happened to many other gay men.
“A month later, I now hear him having loud sex with women regularly, which I definitely never heard before,” he writes. “He’s not hostile, but he won’t really look me in the eye either.”
This is about as classic as it gets. You can read the rest, here.
Egyptian Reporter Who Interviewed A Gay Man
Here’s more on the story about the reporter in Egypt who was sentenced to one year imprisonment, plus a fine, simply for interviewing a gay man.
There’s an interesting twist to this story. The reporter, Mohammed al-Gheiti, is allegedly on record for speaking out against ‘homosexuality.’
It goes into a lot more detail about this story, and gives more background on what it’s like in Egypt for gay men.
You can check this out, here.
Brian Singer Denies Sexual Misconduct
I’ve posted before about rumors involving Brian Singer, and now a few accusations just surfaced.
Singer has now been accused by four men, and there’s a long article in The Atlantic about the allegations.
‘There’s a bunch of us,’ says one man quoted in the article. ‘It’s like, “You were one of Singer’s boys? Me too.”’
Here’s the link. Singer is denying all allegations. There’s also another link to The Atlantic piece.
Logan Paul Is Very Naughty Lately
I really can’t take things like this too seriously. It’s Logan Paul. It’s not the Pope.
Logan Paul announced that he plans to “go gay” for the month of March, and there was backlash. Then Logan apologized for his choice of words. However, he hasn’t given up on the idea, and he said this:
“Because sexuality is so fluid nowadays, I don’t think twice about talking about being gay. I don’t give a shit. Being gay is cool to me, I think that it’s a very cool thing.”
And there’s the problem that I see everywhere. It’s not just Logan Paul. If anything I applaud Logan Paul for bringing this topic out in the open. People think that being gay is only about sex. And it’s not only about sex. Gay people have a history and a culture, and some gay people don’t even have sex.
Now if Logan Paul wants to “go sexually fluid,” I support him all the way. But you just can’t “go gay.” It doesn’t work that way. It’s not possible.
Here’s a link to this one. There’s a cute photo of Logan doing something with a banana in his mouth. However, the truth is that Logan Paul can’t “go gay,” not even if he does naughty things with a banana. You can only be born gay. Right now, the best he can do is shoot for sexually fluid and keep practicing on that banana until he gets it right.
The Orgasm Capital of the World
I never really wondered much about this, but I saw the link and figured I’d share.
A sex toy company called Lelo did a study of their own, and according to them Norway has the best sex ever. A staggering 35 percent claim they climax every day of the week.
You can read more, here. They go on to mention other countries, and they made a statement where they claim to have broken all the stereotypes.
Ageism and Naked Speed Dating Event
I’ve seen things about these naked speed dating events all over the Internet lately.
It’s actually kind of creepy. They all get there at a certain time, strip naked, check each other out, and then get dressed again. After they’ve seen all there is to see, they start the speed dating process.
However, in this particular case you can only participate in this illustrious event if you’re between the ages of 23 and 35. Not 36 or 37. And, they check IDs at the door.
Of course it’s classic ageism. Here’s the link. But you have to ask yourself, at any age, would you ever want to participate in a vapid event like this?
Pro Soccer Player Comes Out As Gay
This never gets tired for me. I know how difficult it is to come out as gay and I never take it lightly. So when I see these stories, I like the share them in hopes that maybe someone else will be inspired.
Former soccer player, Matt Pacifici, recently came out as gay by introducing his boyfriend on Instagram.
You can get all the details, here, and there some very nice photos of them as a couple.
University Chaplin Gay Role Model of the Year
A man named Ray Vincent who works as an associate Chaplain for the University of South Wales has been honored for the role he’s played in the workplace with regard to equality and LGBT rights.
Mr Vincent said he felt “challenged to be more visible and to work harder to encourage and help people to be who they are.”
Here’s a link. Vincent also states he’s well aware of how much pain the churches have caused LGBT people.
Maybe someone should introduce him to Karen Pence, the US Vice President’s wife, who just took on a teaching position in a school that’s openly homophobic.
Egypt TV Host Gets A Year In Prison for Gay Interview
On the global front, it’s happened once again. This time it’s about a TV host who interviewed a gay man who happens to be a gay sex worker.
The TV host wound up getting a year in prison for encouraging what they consider immorality.
Egypt has waged a crackdown on perceived homosexuality in recent years, imprisoning people on vague charges of “debauchery.”
Here’s the article in full.
Gay Bottom Mummy Has No Semen In Rectum
This one will never win any journalism awards, and it is a bit dated, but it’s interesting all the same to people who’ve never heard it before…the mummy part is fascinating anyway.
Apparently, a mummified corpse found in the Italian alps does not have semen in its rectum.
This corpse, “Otzi,” is actually a very rare, important find. It was covered in ice for over 5,000 years. At first, it was believed that Otzi had semen in his rectum and that he’d had butt sex right before he died, which of course led to all kinds of speculation about him being the first gay bottom.
However, it’s all fake news. We still don’t know who the first gay bottom was, and the odds are we might never find out.
