The Uk Is Warning Gay and Bisexual Men about the Monkeypox Outbreak, Ryan Field Books

The Uk Is Warning Gay and Bisexual Men About the Monkeypox Outbreak

This news is a bit unusual because they are singling out gay and bisexual men, and not straights.  Plus, Monkeypox is not considered a sexually transmitted disease. You can get it through sex, but there are a variety of other ways to get it, too. So why would they single out gay and bisexual men? 

The United Kingdom Health Security Agency has warned 'men who are gay and bisexual' to be aware of unusual rashes or lesions and contact a doctor without delay in such a case. The warning comes after the UK reported its ninth monkeypox case since May 6, with the UKHSA confirming 'recent cases predominantly in gay and bisexual communities, or men who have sex with men (MSM)'.

Here's more. The article goes into a great deal more about Monkeypox itself. There are two different kinds of Monkeypox and one is more dangerous than the other.

The Homophobia From "Straight Allies" Going After Madison Cawthorn, Ryan Field Books

 The Homophobia From "Straight Allies" Going After Madison Cawthorn

There's a young conservative politician out there named Madison Cawthorn and he's unique for many reasons. One, I think he's the first member of Congress born in the 1990s. Two, he had a serious accident that left him in a wheelchair. Three, he's extremely attractive. And four, he's known for doing outrageous things...for a conservative republican. A photo of him dressed in lingerie surfaced last week. 

This week on Twitter, the vilest place in the universe, a leaked video of Madison Cawthorn came out again and my fellow liberal allies are going homophobic and they don't even know it. Apparently, a while back Madison Cawthorn was in bed with another young guy (allegedly his cousin) and he was naked. He started dry humping his cousin's face in what he claims was a joke and just fooling around. The video isn't the clearest in the world, but you can see what I mean here if you have a Twitter account

Ever since the video of Cawthorn was leaked the homophobic comments on Twitter from gay allies just don't want to end. I'm not giving names, but here are a few. 

Well at least There is one gay GOP member... I mean he is gay right?

No. My homophobic ally. That does NOT mean that he's gay. What he's doing in that video could mean many things, one of which is that he could be mocking gay men and gay sex. Straight men will do this to mock gay men. And there are plenty of gay republicans. 

not him being a whole rainbow cupcake

Someone decided to mock the rainbow...another gay ally.

Madison Cawthorn is not gay but his boyfriend is.

That one was a gem. Someone doesn't realize that gay men and straight men have hookups all the time.

He is surprisingly mobile.

One person even started to shame his handicap. He does spend most of his time in a wheelchair. But that person is remarking on how fast Cawthorn can dry hump in bed. 

Frank,I was so shocked at seeing this I watched Waltons,Andy Griffith reruns last night.I led a sheltered life..

This straight woman was so stunned at seeing anything homoerotic that's not Will and his Grace she started making jokes about two men in bed. And Frank just "loled."  

Now, I'm no political fan of Matthew Cawthorn. I'm probably the antithesis of Madison Cawthorn. From what I gather he refers to himself as "Dark MAGA." And that's creepy. I know nothing about how he identifies either, but these homophobic allies on Twitter had him marked as gay the moment the video dropped. And here's what's wrong with that. If he is gay, there's nothing simple about that. Not coming out of the closet is all about self-loathing, fear, and shame. And gay men get enough of that without the help of you straight allies. Making fun of two men in bed isn't all that great either.  It's a passive-aggressive form of homophobia. And it's all about that straight white privilege.

The New "Queer As Folk" Reboot Looks Authentic and Honest with No Cultural Appropriation, Ryan Field Books

 The New "Queer as Folk" Reboot Looks Authentic and Honest with No Cultural Appropriation

I just read about the new Queer as Folk Reboot and it doesn't look as if it's going to be straight washed. Openly queer Stephen Dunn is the creator, the writer, and it looks as though he's in charge of the content. That's a huge relief given that so many TV shows, books, and films with queer content are done by straights. And Jaclyn Moore who is transgender and did Dear White People is also writing and producing. 

For the first time in ages, I'm looking forward to something with authentic gay content. 

“Like most queer ‘90s kids, I had a unique relationship with the original ‘Queer as Folk.’ Growing up, I was desperate for any sort of connection with people like me. It was the first time I really felt seen,” showrunner Stephen Dunn said in a statement. “The show offered a new paradigm — one where we could accept and celebrate queer love, families, and communities on a global stage.”

Here's more. Of course, I know exactly how he feels. And so do millions of other gay men of all ages all over the world. When the original Queer as Folk dropped, we ran home to watch it. I remember it used to air on Sunday nights and Tony and I would plan it all around tea dance. We'd go to tea dance early just so we could get home to watch Queer as Folk. We were desperate to feel a connection. Now that's something the brazen straight women who write m/m romance will never understand.

Now They are Taking Poppers From Gay Men, Ryan Field Books

 Now They Are Taking Poppers From Gay Men

I remember the first time I ever set for in a gay club. It was in New Hope, Pa, and the club was called "The New Prelude." It was a low-slung building with no architectural significance, but it was painted pink and purple. The disco music was so loud you could hear the base in the farthest section of the parking lot. There's a photo on this website. 

I was excited and curious. It was the first time I'd ever seen so many gay men in one place. They were dancing, holding hands, kissing, and some were even groping, and I felt completely at home for the first time in my life. But more than that, I knew I belonged for the first time in m life. 

There was one other thing they were doing that caught my eye. They were sniffing and inhaling something from tiny little bottles. I was curious, so I asked one of the bartenders what they were inhaling and he laughed and said, "Poppers. They give you a rush and make you feel horny." Then he pulled a small bottle out of his pocket and handed it to me. The label said, "Locker Room." That I understood. What gay man doesn't enjoy the scent of a men's locker room? 

While the bartender stood there watching me, I opened the bottle, put it up to my nose, and I inhaled deeply. I nearly tipped sideways and the bartender laughed. I not only felt a rush pass through my entire body, but I felt dizzy too. But I didn't dislike it, and the bartender let me keep the bottle. He said it was almost empty and he had another. 

This was my introduction to the world of gay culture and it started with poppers. At the time most straight people didn't know what poppers were, but things are changing.  And guess where they are getting the poppers. 

“Fashion gays give it to them,” said Ms. Yates, who became a fan of poppers during her first year at Parsons School of Design. “That’s how straight girls get poppers.”

Here's more. They go into a lot more detail about the history of poppers. Of course, no one can police something like poppers. They are free for everyone to use. I just hate to see one more important part of my culture taken away. And with no regard. These people don't have a clue as to the significance of poppers in gay clubs.

UK Soccer Player Jake Daniels Comes Out As Gay, Ryan Field Books

 UK Soccer Player Jake Daniels Comes Out As Gay

This is making news all over the world. The well-known UK soccer player, Jake Daniels, just came out as gay. He's only 17 years old and Brave AF. He is also THE first UK player to come out in years. Even though we know there are and have been other gay players, non have come out, not since Justin Fashanu in 1990. That's a long time for the rest of these guys to remain in the closet. 

In any event, maybe Jake Daniels will spark some influence and excitement about coming out as a role model. That's what he's hoping to do. I think it makes a difference. Straight people have no idea just how difficult it still is to come out as gay. You're introducing a whole new person to the world. And if you're not received well, it can be devastating and traumatic. 

 “Now is the time to do it,” he said. “I feel like I am ready to tell people my story. I want people to know the real me.”

Here's more. Smart guy. The article states he's been aware of being gay since he was 6 years old.

Here's more. Even though the victim remains unidentified, there are photos of the family who allegedly beat him. The family is denying the whole thing. 

The mother, get this, was forcing her son to marry a girl.
