Gay Men Who Hate Anal Sex; More On "White Gays"; San Francisco City Hall Lit In Trans Colors

Gay Men Who Hate Anal Sex

It always amuses me when straight people think that all gay men want (and like) anal sex. It's just something they simply assume. The same way they all think being gay is only about sex.

In fact, in a study of men who have sex with men — a study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine in 2011 — less than 40 percent of respondents had engaged in anal intercourse during their last sexual event.

Of course this will all fall on deaf ears, and people will still make jokes about gay men and anal sex. But at least we're starting to get this out there. 

Here's the link. 

More On "White Gays"

This keeps coming up lately.

There’s been a lot of talk about intersectionality lately. More and more people, especially those in the LGBTQ community, are speaking up about forms of discrimination that overlap or intersect and what can be done to stop it from happening.

You can read more, here. They also mention, thankfully, there's a difference between being white and gay, and being a "White Gay."

San Francisco City Hall Lit In Trans Colors

Here's something positive for a change.

San Francisco’s City Hall donned a striking blue, pink, and white color scheme in honor ofTransgender Awareness Week.

Here's the rest. There's a photo, too.

The Secret Gay Prostitution Farm; Elton John's Life In Reverse; Same Sex Couples Adopting In UK

Exposing a Secret Gay Prostitution Farm

This is something you don't hear about often.

Unbeknownst to anyone in his tight-knit community, 60-year-old Mlyniec had a practice of luring troubled young men back to his remote farmhouse, where he would make them perform sexual favors in exchange for food and money. Because of this, he became known as “The Collector.”

Then a man found out about it and threatened to expose everything, and Mlyniec shot him.

Here's the link. 

Elton John's Life In Reverse

This is about an advertisement that was just released. 

The ad depicts John’s life and career in reverse, and comes with the touching message that “some gifts are more than just a gift.”

Here's the link. It's amazingly good. 

Same Sex Couples Adopting In UK

Here are some new statistics on gay couples adopting in the UK.

Same-sex couples now account for one in eight adoptions in England.
450 of the 3,820 adoptions in 2018 were by same-sex couples, according to statistics from the Department for Education released yesterday (15 November).
There's more, here. Apparently, gay couples adopting is on the rise.

Russell Tovey's Crotch-Grabbing Photo; "No Gays Allowed" Billboard In Times Square; FREE Ride For Gay Sex

Russell Tovey's Crotch-Grabbing Photo

I like to keep things on the lighter side of news on Friday.

Russell Tovey had a birthday, and he posted a selfie, because that's what you do nowadays.

The gay thespian took a selfie of himself wearing a skin-tight wetsuit. The accompanying caption simply read: ‘We call this wetsuit Tuesday where I’m from.’
You can read it all, here, and see the gay thespian's photo. 

"No Gays Allowed" Billboard In Times Square

They put up a billboard in the middle of Times Square in New York that says, "No Gays Allowed."

Apparently, they are still at it.

The sign is part of a campaign by a group called Citizens for Transparency to shed light on the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a hate group that has been behind several recent legal campaigns to limit protections for LGBTQ people.

Here's the link. They're linked to the anti-gay baker people. In fact, this reminds me of the things I see on Facebook when people defend the anti-gay cake bakers' religious freedom. And I see that more often than I care to see it. 

FREE Ride For Gay Sex

This is about an Uber driver who's in trouble for allegedly offering a free ride for gay sex.

Some poor guy in Florida just wanted to get to work, and this happened. 

 The driver offered to give Martson a free ride, with one pretty big caveat.

The driver allegedly said, “Hey, I’ll give you a free ride if you let me (commit a sexual act).”
The link is here. You don't want to miss the comments with this one.

Male Full Frontal Nudity: Ben Affleck to Chris Pine

They're saying that male full frontal nudity is the last pop culture frontier. And they could be right about that. Frankly, I think it's gay men having sex with straight men, but that could be debated.

This is a new piece, and it's all about male full frontal.

The latest example? Chris Pine's revelatory moment in the new film Outlaw King, streaming now on Netflix. And while a historical action drama about a 14th century Scottish king who launched a war against the English army seems an unlikely source for such a moment, it's there nonetheless. 

You can read the rest here. It's a good article, with a lot more detail than usual, no pun intended.  

Drag Performer In Backface Does Minstrel Show

It's hard to believe this sort of thing is still happening today. 

The racist performance happened at Kauai Beach Resort last Friday during “A Show Fit for a Queen,” a charity event hosted by several local drag performers to raise money for a local youth suicide prevention group.

Here's a link. The audience was stunned, and someone cut the lights after the first 45 seconds. There's a 20 second video at the link that someone posted to Facebook. 

Hot Male Models In Underwear: Central Station MSK

I think this is totally SFW.

It's a link to a video at Daily Motion where they filmed a group of male models in their underwear. It's all done backstage, and it's not bad at all.

Here's the link.  There are also a few other videos there that look interesting.

Sick New Video Game Where LGBT People Get Shot In a Nightclub; Man Jumps From 3rd Floor Balcony During Hookup; Man Accused of Killing Wife and Grindr Cheating

Sick New Video Game Where LGBT People Get Shot In a Nightclub

This news is as shocking and offensive as it is repulsive.

A new video game from “Crying Nazi” Christopher Cantwell is just as reprehensible as it’s creator. In part of the game, players slaughter LGBTQ people in a Pulse-like nightclub.

Check it out, here. They go into a lot more detail, and this isn't the first time Cantwell has done something like this. 

Man Jumps From 3rd Floor Balcony During Hook Up

They aren't totally sure what happened here. 

An American man is in critical condition at a hospital in Sydney, Australia after falling from a third floor balcony and impaling himself on a table leg during an alleged hookup.

Here's more. Police posted to Facebook and are asking anyone with information to contact them.

Man Accused of Killing Wife and Grindr Cheating

Here's something that allegedly happen through Grindr. 

A man has been accused of killing his wife after cheating on her with men he met on Grindr.
Pharmacist Mitesh Patel is accused of killing his wife and business partner, Jessica. The woman was found dead at their Victorian house in a suburb of Middlesbrough, England, last 14 May.

Here's the link. The accused is denying all charges, and the judge has banned jurors who've actually used Grindr. They go into detail about why they've been banned.

The LGBT Issues Straight People Don't See In Bohemian Rhapsody; Jaden Smith's Famous Boyfriend; Religious Leader Who Sent Dirty Pics To Teen Boy

The LGBT Issues Straight People Don't See In Bohemian Rhapsody

I'm glad I'm not the only one who brings this discussion up. Here's an open letter a young guy wrote with his thoughts and feelings about how LGBT content was treated in Bohemian Rhapsody. I couldn't agree more with him if I tried.

But as a queer person who fears the effect of inaccurate, unfair and markedly homophobic representations of LGBTQ people making their way this far into the mainstream, I find the whole thing to be very, very fright'ning. And while I understand if you're rolling your eyes thinking the last thing you need right now some angry gaysplaining about a movie that you thought seemed both totally harmless and thoroughly enjoyable, I'd really appreciate if you resist the urge to stop reading — and consider my concerns.

Thank you. 

Here's the link. If you don't understand a thing that was said above, you might want to read this open letter a few times.  

Jaden Smith's Famous Boyfriend

I like everything Jaden Smith does, so don't expect me to be objective here. They seem to be speculating. 

“I just want to say Tyler the Creator is the best friend in the whole world and I love him so f*cking much,” Smith said. “And I want to tell you guys something… Tyler doesn’t want to say, but Tyler is my motherf*cking boyfriend, and he’s been my motherf*cking boyfriend my whole f*cking life. Tyler the Creator is my f*cking boyfriend! It’s true!”

Here's the rest. There's a video. It's all in good fun. 

Religious Leader Who Sent Dirty Pics To Teen Boy

Here's another Grindr story. This one is about a former Rabbi and a teenage boy. 

44-year-old Aryeh Leiv Cohen entered guilty plea last Friday on one count of engaging in electronic communication describing sexual conduct with a child.
It all started back in February when Cohen, who was working as a rabbi and youth outreach director at Minneapolis Community Kollel, struck up a conversation someone claiming to be 16-year-old boy on Grindr.
It turns out Cohen was actually conversing with an undercover agent.

Why He Gave Up Sex; Gay Men In Toxic Relationships; Theresa May Hosts Ugandan President Who Wants LGBT People Jailed

Why He Gave Up Sex

I don't know what to say about this one. Obviously, it's about sex.

My recent boundaries–kissing and cuddling with my clothes on–don’t always go over so well on Grindr. The apps have made hooking up so easy, raising everyone’s expectations. We approach each other with laundry lists of requirements and must-do’s that we didn’t carry with us into bars and clubs a decade ago.

Here's the rest. Sometimes I wonder if people overthink things too much. It's an interesting topic, but not executed quite the way it could have been.

Gay Men In Toxic Relationships

Now here's something I have seen before with people I know. In some cases the relationships were so toxic I didn't know how these people did it.

Say it isn’t so! Are gay men prone to stay in unhealthy relationships out of a lack of options? Do we not even consider whether the grass is greener — because we think some grass is better than none? Welcome to one of the latest debates on Reddit’s /askgaybros forum.

Here's the link. I know it's Reddit, but it all sounds like things I've seen with gay men that I know personally who have been in toxic relationships. And many can't figure out how to break away. Some are still together.

Theresa May Hosts Ugandan President Who Wants LGBT People Jailed

Here's a good example of the way LGBT people have always been treated so poorly. And it's why I don't focus on any other issue or topic unless it's LGBT related.

Theresa May hosted a Ugandan MP at No.10 Downing Street who supports the country’s controversial ‘Kill the Gays’ Bill.
The Prime Minister of the UK welcomed Jovah Kamateeka at a reception for the Women MPs of the World conference, despite her homophobic views, according to The Sunday Times.

Here's the link to this one. Notice how you'll see nothing in the mainstream media about this one. Kamateeka has argued that "homosexuality" is "not African."
