Rick Santorum On Bruce Jenner; David Beckham Is 40; Cyndi Lauper and Pizza Business Raise Money

Rick Santorum On Bruce Jenner

When I link to things like this I wish I could say they were 100% accurate and without bias. However, so far I have not found one gay press in the universe that is without bias...completely objective news.

In any event, Rick Santorum made a few statements about Bruce Jenner and now he's clarifying...I guess that's what he's doing. It seems like a condescending effort to make us aware that he's compassionate about Jenner, forgives Jenner, and almost feels sorry for him. He's not actually celebrating Jenner's transition. But I could be wrong about that.

The main point is that Santorum isn't backing down on his stand about equal rights and gay marriage. He's still a conservative; that's his brand. However, on a more positive note, this does seem to be one of the more accurate stories out there.

'Many of you may have read a story published by the website BuzzFeed where I was asked for my thoughts regarding Bruce Jenner,' Santorum began.

'My comment affirmed Jenner as a person, made by God in His likeness as we all are. It was meant to express empathy not a change in public policy,' the former US senator continued.

He ended the post with the hashtag 'compassion.'

Yesterday, 2 May, Santorum was asked what he thought about Jenner's announcement he will transition to female.

'If he says he’s a woman, then he’s a woman,' Santorum said to BuzzFeed News.

'My responsibility as a human being is to love and accept everybody,' he continued. 'Not to criticize people for who they are. I can criticize, and I do, for what people do, for their behavior.'

I'm not even sure why anyone asked him these questions, but there you are. 

David Beckham Is 40

Here's a lighter article about David Beckham. He just turned 40, and they refer to him as "goldenballs." And they give 14 reasons why we should love him. But that all depends on you.

1) His penchant for stripping down to his underwear at every available opportunity
The long-time H&M collaborator has a habit of promoting his wares with scantily-clad ads [see the above promotional image and below YouTube video] – with plenty of emphasis on his sizable package. 'He does have a huge one, though,' Vicky B once enthused. 'It's like a tractor exhaust pipe!'

There's more here, where there are photos and video of how Beckham has evolved over the last 20 years...or rather how is ass has evolved. I actually think it's a good example of how you can still look good at 40...the main reason I'm up extra early every morning running in all kinds of weather like a fool. It does pay off as the years go by.

Cyndi Lauper and Pizza Business Raise Money

Remember the story about the good Christians who own Memories Pizza in Indiana? They were the ones who said they wouldn't cater a gay wedding without even being asked to cater one, they got backlash from the LGBT community, and other good Christians started a crowdfunding page for them because they felt sorry for them. Last I heard, unless I missed something, the good Christians from Memories Pizza raised almost one million dollars...all for themselves, not for charity. So I find this story about Cyndi Lauper and a gay owned Pizza place especially inspiring.

A charitable initiative, inspired as a response to a pizza restaurant that said it would not make pizzas for a gay wedding, has raised over $160,000 in just 26 days.

The #Pizza4Equality campaign was launched by Brooklyn activist, Scott Wooledge.

It was created after news spread about Memories Pizza in Indiana, whose owners said last month that they would not cater for same-sex marriage ceremonies.

It's nice to see someone follow up on this, in this way. Bravo to Cyndi Lauper, too. No pun intended, but let's see if the good Christians from Memories Pizza are now willing to part with some of their dough for charity.

The rest is here.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Fun Story! April 30, 2015


Verified Purchase


The Rainbow Detective Agency is owned by two gay men - Proctor Gamble and Blair Huntingdon. Proctor is 36 years old and was once a male swimsuit model. The case they are working on now involves a C List celebrity/model named Isaac Luke. He's a closet gay and also has a very rare physical affliction. He has worked in the past for a designer named Lion Hewitt and has also been personally involved with him.

Isaac is kidnapped and Lion Hewitt hires The Rainbow Detective Agency to find Isaac and to keep the physical affliction from becoming public knowledge. It all turns out to be fun and games until poor Isaac finds his luck has ran completely dry!


The playful banter between Proctor and Blair was a lot of fun and they remind me of Oscar and Felix on the Odd Couple. They are passionate men so you can expect to read quite a bit of steamy scenes with these two. Both, Proctor and Blair were very excited to get acquainted with Isaac and see his special package ( so to speak).

A very fun story! It reads like a smooth dream and the characters have a lot of energy, heart, and charm.
