Milo Yiannopoulos Loses Big Book Deal

This past weekend a video surfaced where Milo Yiannopoulos made more than a few strong statements on a highly intense topic. It’s interesting because Milo has been preaching about the right to free speech, but never actually discussing the consequences that come with free speech. 
Over the weekend, a video surfaced of a 2016 episode of podcast Drunken Peasants concerning clerical abuse and underage sex.

It originally aired on 4 January 2016, but an edited version went viral after it was announced Yiannopoulos would speak at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Maryland.

In the episode, Yiannopoulos joked about having sex with one of the priests who taught him while he was still a school boy.

As a result, Yiannopoulos lost a huge book deal with Simon and Schuster, and he resigned from his position as senior editor at Breitbart News. You can read more here.

In all fairness, here’s a link to a long Facebook status that Milo Y. posted in his own defense.

And, here’s a link to youtube video. I don’t think this one has been edited, but don’t quote me on that.

Gay Porn Boxer and a Twitter Troll

A gay porn star and boxer recently had an interesting encounter with a Twitter troll.

Former gay porn star and boxer Yusaf Mack stood up to a homophobic Twitter troll in a barber shop.

In a video taken of the incident, it shows the 37-year-old athlete swinging at a man who had reportedly been posting bigoted comments about him online.

You can check this one out here, and there’s a video.

Follow Up On London’s Royal Vauxhall Tavern

I posted about this a while ago, here. There’s been an interesting turn since then.

 The threat of London’s Royal Vauxhall Tavern being sold to a straight pub chain has been removed – for the time being.

On Friday GSN reported that the venue, which has been on the market since last fall, was on the verge of being sold to Faucet Inn. The company is the same one that owns, and subsequently closed, Camden’s Black Cap.

However, on Friday evening, Faucet Inn tweeted that it was now no longer interested in buying the venue.

For the time being, it will continue as a gay venue. It goes into a lot more detail. There’s more here. 

In the midst of so many gay venues shuttering these days, it’s good to read something like this for a change.
