Closeted Gay Man Hires Someone To Out Him At His Own Funeral
Here’s just one more reason why I have no tolerance for homophobia from the left or the right. This story is a good example of how deep these things go, and how some are still so terrified of coming out of the closet. They wait until they die. That’s big. A biker in Australia actually hired a man to out him at his own funeral.
The general story is about a private investigator who actually does this for a living. People hire him to tell the truth at their funeral. They call him “The Coffin Confessor.”
“There were many people there who may have questioned his sexuality, and he was just putting it straight to them that he was [gay], and his lover was in the audience and was one of the mourners, but they weren’t going to know who it is. His last request was to have his motorcycle pushed into his grave on top of his coffin, and then all the boys filled it in.”
Here’s a link to the rest. Sounds like a great premise for a book.
Two Gay Teachers Leave Catholic School
Two popular teachers in a Catholic School in the Seattle Archdiocese resigned and some believe they were forced to resign because they’re gay, and the archdiocese is claiming the teachers just voluntarily resigned on their own. One teacher is a man and the other a woman, and both became engaged to their partners recently.
It’s interesting because now it becomes a legal issue as well as a moral and ethical issue.
If what the archdiocese is accused of is accurate, they could be found in violation of 2006 laws that prohibit discrimination against state employees based on sexual orientation.
Here are all the details. Parents, students, and local council members are calling the archdiocese out and they are fighting back. I hope there’s a follow up with this one.
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.
