“STRAIGHT. It’s the new GAY”

I've never heard of Steve Hughes before coming across this clip posted by one of my Facebook groups, WIPEOUT HOMOPHOBIA ON FACEBOOK, and according to his Wikipedia page, he was a member/founder of various thrash metal bands through the 80s and 90s in his native Australia. Such genre bands are not exactly the bastions of … Continue reading “STRAIGHT. It’s the new GAY”

Reel Life: Got Milk?

Yep! Finally, after vetoing it in the past, stating that slain San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk should be honored locally, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed a bill recognizing May 22 (Milk's birthday) as "Harvey Milk Day" in the state of California.  This comes almost two months to the day after President Barack Obama posthumously awarded Milk … Continue reading Reel Life: Got Milk?

Fight on, my fellow TRUE AMERICANS. We WILL win - against the serrated homophobes entrenched in … Continue reading Not Second Class Citizens

Music Box: All You Single Ladies…Don’t Bother

  Despite lyrics that sing, "There's a she-wolf in your closet, open up and let her free...let it out so it can breathe..."  there's nothing closeted here.  What makes Andrew Foster's proudly gay, almost frame-for-frame cover of Shakira's totally stupid "She-Wolf" video so refreshing is that, where Shakira took her unintentionally hilarious choreography way too … Continue reading Music Box: All You Single Ladies…Don’t Bother

Happy Birthday Uncle Abe, Darwinism and the Devolution of Me

(See below to 'devolve' yourself!) Yep, Abe Lincoln was/is my great, great, great gay/bisexual uncle, via marriage.  Don't laugh.  While I never researched the truth in that - the 'uncle' aspect, not the 'gay' facet - I figured why would my mother lie for all those years ago about my heritage?  I know, I know...with the … Continue reading Happy Birthday Uncle Abe, Darwinism and the Devolution of Me
