Portia Stands By Ellen DeGeneres; Straight Pride Event Planned By Dumb Christian Nationalists; Ryan Field Books

Portia Stands By Ellen DeGeneres

Well of course Portia is going to stand by her wife, Ellen DeGeneres. It's only logical she would. And this whole saga continues to rage on and these allegations are serious. They range from employees being treated poorly to sexual harassment by producers.

On Instagram, Portia posted a giant message: “I stand by Ellen.”
“To all our fans….we see you. Thank you for your support,” she wrote in the caption.
Here's more. There's an ongoing internal investigation and I'm waiting to hear more facts. I don't want to be that Internet Karen who jumps to all kinds of conclusions based on hearsay. 
Straight Pride Event Planned By Dumb Christian Nationalists
The Straight Pride ParadeHere's one reason why I wrote the story titled, The Straight Pride Parade. These religious idiots don't a have a clue. 
Don Grundmann, a Christian white nationalist who heads The National Straight Pride Coalition, says the group will return to Modesto, California to stage a “straight pride event.”
Here's the rest. They're not too smart, and clearly not very well educated in the sense of being well-rounded. And part of me always feels a little sorry for dumb-dumbs like this. They'll never know where the bread plate is located at a formal dinner party.

"A wonderful story that I loved. The characters were well developed, and strong. Gus: A sweet young man. Doing something for all the wrong reasons. Craig: his boyfriend, he'll go along with anything Gus say. Henry: Gus father a no nonsense man, who's husband died last year. I enjoyed this story."

Altered Parts by [Field, Ryan]



While the book is easily readable, it also addresses emotions stereotypes and relationships. I would have preferred it be 3 times as long and tragically most guys don't find happy endings as depicted.. but in a short book, it provides food for thought, clarity and insight.. far more and better expressed than 99% of gay fiction . I don't think it could have been done better.

One of Two Gay Men to First Marry In Illinois; More About Ellen DeGeneres; Ryan Field Books

One of Two Gay Men to First Marry In Illinois

Here's a sad story about the second same sex couple to marry in Illinois. But it's also very endearing.

Mr. Ilio and Ron Dorfman got married in December 2013 in a ceremony that was moved up because of concerns about the health of Dorfman, who wasn’t expected to live long enough to see same-sex marriage become legal in Illinois in June 2014. Dorfman died about two months after exchanging vows with Mr. Ilio.

Here's more.  There are photos and back story about their relationship, which lasted for more than 20 years. 

I love these stories because these are about the real gay men, not what Hollywood or some non-gay writer imagined gay men to be. 

May he RIP. 

More About Ellen Degeneres

Here's more info about what's happening with Ellen, and it's still not good. Allegedly, they already have someone in mind to replace her. 

A source told US that Ellen, “is pissed that people have come forward to share these negative stories about her and feels betrayed,” and that she could be looking for a way out of the show entirely.

You can read more, here. I'm remaining objective with this one.

Lea Thompson Backs Up Mean Behavior Claims on Ellen Show; Gays Having Less Sex Thanks to COVID; Ryan Field Books

Lea Thompson Backs Up Mean Behavior Claims on Ellen Show

The Ellen DeGeneres saga continues to devolve, and now people are starting to back up all the allegations about the so-called horrible meanness associated with the show and the host.

This time it's Lea Thompson backing up Brad Garrett.

“True story. It is,” wrote Thompson in a tweet on Friday after news reports indicated the show is now the subject of an investigation of “staff experiences on set” by WarnerMedia, according to the Daily Mail

You can read more, here. DeGeneres is trying hard to do damage control.

I do recall reading about other mean talk show hosts in books and memoirs, especially one in particular. I won't say her name, but I think it begins with a great big O. And she's grand. But it's not something I've ever seen carry over into the mainstream. They usually keep these things quiet in Hollywood. Apparently, in this era of full disclosure, Ellen didn't get as lucky, allegedly.


Gays Having Less Sex Thanks to COVID

Well this seems to be surprising some people. I'm not shocked. I knew gay men who stopped having sex altogether for years during the height of AIDS. Gay men were terrified then, and they're terrified now. If I were single right now I wouldn't be trusting anyone.

Researchers in Australia have announced the results of a study on gay men’s sexual habits during the coronavirus pandemic. The conclusion: men report having 12 times less sex than during happier days.

Here's more of the details

Gay Canadian Man and Police Discrimination; Trans Woman Targets Gay Men at Gay Bar In Washington, DC; Ryan Field Books

Gay Canadian Man and Police Discrimination 

Unfortunately, this sort of thing has been happening to gay men for many, many years. The allegations of discrimination and abuse that can sometimes happen with the police and gay men is not something new and I've personally experienced it myself on several occasions. I think things have changed for the better in the last ten years, but not totally. Especially if allegations like this are still happening.

Shane Daum, a 43-year-old Canadian man, has gone public with allegations that police did nothing after he reported being assaulted by a group of seven individuals while camping in British Columbia last month.

Here's a link to the entire piece. It's a rough story, but I've also seen worse.

Trans Woman Targets Gay Men at Gay Bar In Washington, DC

There's a 30 year old transgender woman who has been targeting gay men in a gay bar in DC. It's an odd story. 

Sissy Gracie, tells people she approaches that she is raising money for the D.C. LGBTQ community services center Casa Ruby and urges them – sometimes under great pressure – to make their “donation” in cash or by credit card through a credit card scanner linked to her cell phone.

Here's more. It's a lot more involved and it's a long article. But worth reading.

Hot Naked Man Wearing A Mask; More About Bryan Singer; Ryan Field Books

Hot Naked Man Wearing A Mask

This is silly, but it's not bad to look at either. A hot naked guy decided to go out in public wearing a mask, and he wasn't wearing the mask on his face. He was wearing the mask between his legs to cover his junk.

Some pedestrians stopped in their tracks to take photos of the man while others gaped in shock.

Here's more. There are photos and it's worth the click.

More About Bryan Singer

I've been following the saga of Bryan Singer for a while now, and this latest story is unreal. It's sort of an expose in the Hollywood Reporter. 

Adding to the drama, one of the film’s actors filed a civil suit four months after production wrapped, claiming that he was raped by three of Singer’s friends and business associates — although none of them were involved with X-Men.

You can read it all, here. There are more quotes from the Hollywood Reporter, too.

Gay Baseball Player Matt Barker; Andy Cohen and Glory Holes; Ryan Field Books

Gay Baseball Player Matt Barker

This is a really fascinating story about a gay baseball player named Matt Barker and how he overcame issues like addiction and coming to terms with being gay. It's very uplifting.

“I was sick of the way I was living,” he explained. “I said, ‘Knock that shit off, Matt.’ I asked my sister and her husband for help, and they said, ‘absolutely.’ As soon as I woke up from there, I was feeling alive again, and thought, ‘Let’s go after some goals here."

Here's more. There's also a photo of him. He's hot. 


Andy Cohen and Glory Holes

I've been reading a lot about this lately, and frankly I never thought I would. 

“If you haven’t heard, the Canadian government is echoing the New York City Department of Health’s recommendation that horny citizens use glory holes as a way to limit face-to-face contact and swapping saliva during sex,” Cohen explained.

You can read it all, here. There's a video, too, where Cohen talks in-depth about Glory Holes.
