Governor of Utah Doesn’t Like Condom Images
According to this article, a condom campaign in Utah has been halted because the governor doesn’t like the images on the package. Apparently, he thinks there’s too much sexual innuendo.
“The Governor understands the importance of the Utah Department of Health conducting a campaign to educate Utahns about HIV prevention.
“He does not, however, approve the use of sexual innuendo as part of a taxpayer-funded campaign.”
You can check the rest out here. It’s really just a harmless campaign designed to make people more aware of sexual health, and to help take the stigma away from HIV. It’s been done with a sense of humor and it doesn’t look the least bit offensive to me. Besides, who actually looks at the design on a condom package and takes it seriously? I know I never did. I have seen condoms all my adult life and I cannot tell you what was on the packaging. There’s a photo of the condoms at the link, too.
Indonesia Rights Group Slams Gay Raids After Rape Case
In case you haven’t been following this story all week, a male Indonesian student in Britain was convicted of raping many men and prosecutors have referred to him as, “the most prolific rapist in British legal history.” There are more details at the link.
But this story even gets worse, as if that’s even possible.
Indonesia’s human rights commission on Tuesday condemned plans by a mayor to launch raids targeting the LGBTQ community in his city after a local man was convicted in Britain of sexually assaulting 48 men.
In other words, this douche bag mayor is using the information from the convicted rapist to target and go after other innocent gay men in his city.
Here’s a link to read the rest. Of course there’s also back story with regard to the Muslim religion’s open hostility toward gay people. I’ll never understand why the media always plays that angle down.

Sleepless in San Franciso
“The extras made the story: the Labrador retriever, the ten year old son, the best friend, and even the new house needing renovation. Never imagined that the son had been raised by two Dads.”
“THIS TITLE sucked me right the heck in. I had my fingers, toes, and ankles crossed (not my eyes because I was desperate to read) that I would get the chance to review this book. I may or may not have breathed a literal sigh of relief when it arrived on my Kindle.”
“Gender bendy romance classic retelling”
Written by Lambda-Award winning author Ryan Field, A Starr Is Born is a queer retelling of an old rags to riches trope that’s been reinterpreted many times, but this time it’s totally different with gay main characters, a gay love story, and a gay male point of view. It’s partly a light-hearted parody and partly sarcasm. It’s also highly erotic and charged with authentic, emotional gay male romance.
From the day they meet for the first time until the day their lives change forever, Harrison Parker and Morton Starr were destined for greatness—and each other. A Starr is Born follows the paths of handsome, badly-behaving rock star Harrison Parker and sexy gender-bending performer Morton Starr, who is just starting his career.
Morton is so madly in love with his husband, Harrison, he’ll do anything to please him, including overlooking all his self-destructive issues. However, as openly gay Morton gains more fame and success in the mainstream with his popular gay love songs and his unique gender-bending image, and Harrison continues to slide downhill, there comes a point where everything has to change. And when that climax finally happens, Morton isn’t certain about anything in his future or his marriage.
