Gaying it Forward.

Zachary Quinto recently came out.  One reason he came out was the recent suicide of Jamey Rodemeyer.  Now, ABC news reporter Dan Kloeffler came out while reporting on the story of Zachary Quinto's coming out.  WOW!  One gay comes out, then another gay comes out and so on and so on.  We're gaying it forward!  Who knows who will come out next?  It's soooo exciting.  Someone new seems to be coming out everyday.  Whoo hoo!

Dan says in his blog, "As a journalist, I don’t want to be the story, but as a gay man I don’t want to stand silent if I can offer some inspiration or encouragement to kids that might be struggling with who they are."

Geoff the Gay Robot

Geoff is the gay robot sidekick to Craig Ferguson.  I liked the gay robot when he was introduced on the Late Late Show, but now, he's new and improved and GAYER!

Geoff now has a human voice.  Whoever is playing "Geoff" is a wonderful compliment to Craig Ferguson.
Craig is a very gay friendly and gay humorous comedian.  He has no problem doing "gay" and he's brilliant at it.  Craig Ferguson's humor is an acquired taste and he makes me laugh. 

The give and take with Geoff and Craig is very snarky, intelligent and funny.  This is a forwardly progressive show and I'm so happy Geoff and Craig are still around.

Zachary Quinto has COME OUT!

Quinto, who is of half-Italian and half-Irish descent,[1] was born in Pittsburgh and grew up in Green Tree, Pennsylvania, with his mother Margo and his brother Joe.[2] His father, John, who was a barber, died of cancer when Quinto was 7 years old.[3] He graduated from Central Catholic High School in 1995, where he participated in their musicals and won the Gene Kelly Award for Best Supporting Actor, and then attended Carnegie Mellon University's School of Drama, from which he graduated in 1999.[4][5]

In a NY Magazine article in the October 17, 2011 edition, on-line now, Zachary Quinto stated that he is a gay man.  Zachary commented that the recent stories of gay suicides and in particular Jamey Rodemeyer has compelled him to definitively come out.  Zachary Quinto played Spock in the Star Trek movie and has played gay roles in Tori Spelling's "so noTORIous" and in the Broadway revival of "Angels in America".

Remembering Matthew Shepard 13 years later.

Can you believe that it has been 13 years since Matthew Shepard was murdered?  Every time I recall this tragedy, I feel so sad and melancholy.  It was a terrible tragedy and a situation that we should never forget and strive to have this never happen again.

Unfortunately, bullying happens a lot and we've all heard and read about the most recent sad stories.  Let's listen to our children.  Let's sit them down and ask them how they are doing.  Let's take the time to notice subtle changes and even if your suspicions maybe be nothing at all, at least you'll know that you took the time to check in on you kid.

Nancy Grace Farts on DWTS

First there was the Nancy Grace nipple slip and her denial of it.  Now there is the fartgate debacle.  Here's the video clip so you can judge Nancy for yourself:

Watch Tristan MacManus touch his nose. Nancy clutches her stomach right before the release. It's been known that many people fart while doing Yoga and I'm sure that physical exursion may cause flatulence also.  He who smelt it, dealt it? She who concealed it, dealed it?

Wall Street Drinks Champagne

Wall Street drinks champagne while protesters march past. 

When I first heard of "Occupy Wall Street" I was thrilled.  The people are taking their voices to the streets and demanding action.  We, the taxpayers, bailed out Wall Street and no one was held accountable, no one put a face(s) to this financial melt down and it felt to me like another problem was swept under the rug. 

These smug Wall Street workers have the audacity to stand there and sip champagne!!!  This shows how callous and greedy we Americans can truly be.  It's like putting gasoline on a sinking ship. 

Bank of America has the gaul to charge basic account customers $12.00 a month unless the account carries a $1,500 balance!!!  $1,500 !!!!!!
Where does it end?  When do we stop this blatant greed?  I think Occupy Wall Street is going to wake up some people.

Homophobia and religion muddy the 2012 political waters.

It seems that homophobia and religion are front and center in the 2012 political debates. I understand that people's religious beliefs will have an effect on their views of all subjects, but isn't there a separation of church and state in these United States? Are we really united?

GOP candidate (R) Rick Santorum recently stated that he would reinstate the "Don't Ask Don't Tell" military rule if he is elected. He also states that openly gay soldiers will cause uneasiness when it comes to close sleeping quarters and showering. Really? These are his major concerns?

Candidates often use the bible as their defense of their anti-homosexual stances. I thought a political candidate or office holder was to use the Constitution as a barometer of the nation's laws?

Many candidates openly base their views on the bible and their religions. In the past, people were concerned that John Fitzgerald Kennedy would base his Catholicism and loyalty to the pope, in his decision making as President. Well, as we know, the problems that plagued his presidency had nothing to do with religion.

Can we really truly be united and keep religion out of politics? It seems that we cannot. This election year has put the bible and religious views front and center for better or for, on the most part, worse.

Is our country going in a new direction and philosophy? Has the GOP become a new political dynamic? I think that marriage equality and the repel of "Don't Ask Don't Tell" have just hit many raw nerves and the candidates are just frustrated and grabbing at anything they can to make their points.

I feel the country is changing, for the better.  New York State has allowed Marriage Equality, "Don't Ask Don't Tell" has been repealed, people's attitudes towards LGBTQ are changing, LGBTQ people are better understood and we know that it is NOT a choice.  It's going to be OK and I feel good things are in store for LGBTQ people.

When Turkeys Attack!

A news reporter/producer from Sacramento News 10 went into the field to find out if wild turkeys are attacking joggers and other pedestrians.  The video is hilarious as the turkey is relentless in its persuit.

The A-List: New York Season 2 Part 2

Mike Ruiz proposed to his partner.  It was a touching moment.  I'm sure his relationship will go far and Mike has a lot more to give back to the LGBTQ world.  Mike is the only cast member who seems to have a mature attitude and has his head on straight.

Nyasha doesn't really seem to have a future in the recording industry.  Her vocals all seem to be enhanced and she has no stand out style or anything that makes her unique, especially her "talent".

Derek has his spray on tan "Tansxyl" boring.  Good luck to him.

Ryan seemed to play both sides of the fence and somehow came out unscathed.  He seemed to enjoy pitting people against each other under the guise of solving inter-personal problems.  He's a real snake in the grass.  I hope he doesn't find himself, one day, getting into a real cat fight....meow.

I'm looking forward to the Season 3 reunion with Wendy Williams as the show host.  She did a good job on Season 1.  I wonder if Nyasha is going to be there?  The fur and wigs will fly, I'm certain of it.

The A-List: New York Season 2 wrap-up Part 1

The 2nd season of A-List: New York has wrapped up...FINALLY.  We all knew what was coming.  Austin has totally isolated himself from all the other guys and 1 girl (more on her later) and they have kicked him to the curb.  Reichen and Ryan confronted him on his batchelor party in Atlantic City and told him that they knew that Jake had cheated on him and that he had cheated on Jake.  What a time to confront someone on such a sensitive issue!!!  This show had many tasteless scenes and this had to be one of the top 3. 

Austin and Jake's relationship showed signs of trouble from the beginning.  They both seemed high strung and capable of physical violence.  Austin had shown quite a temper throughout the season.  There were hints among the cast members that Austin and Jake had some physical altercations, i.e. Austin's supposed "I ran into a cabinet" lip incident. 

Austin and Jake's batchelor party get-a-way seemed like a mess-in-the-making from the very start.  I could hardly watch the antics in the pink Hummer limo.  Austin was taking off his clothes, getting drunk and acting his totally obnoxious self. 

I had read Austin's writing that he was ready to start up some drama and that this is really what his intentions for his portrayal on the show was going to be about.  He certainly did stir up a lot of trouble and it bit him in the ass.  Even in gay marriages, trouble can ensue and he has shown that gay couples are not always destined to be in a monogamous, loving and caring relationship.

Nyasha.  Where do I begin.  Nyasha, Nyasha, Nyasha.  Why Logo decided to put her in the mix is beyond me.  She said that she is from Africa and won the title of "Miss Africa".  Well, she doesn't act like anyone I've met who is from Africa.  She is so abrasive, confrontational, evasive and rude.  She played the whole "you do not hit a woman" thing throughout the season.  TJ did an excellent imitation of her when he had the dress and wig on with Ryan in the boutique.

Nyasha comes across as an "I'm entitled, get out of my way, it's you and not me" type of personality.  She's the type of person whom I turn around from and would not give the time of day to.  She is the "CEO" of her wig company, "Embrace your hair", and she showed some awful wigs on this show.  One time, she had a wig on that looked like it was connected to a visible section of corn rows on the side of her head.  Nasty stuff.  She's not a fag hag (what fag would want her?), she's not personable and she thinks her shit don't stink.  Well, it does honey and yes that stink is coming from you....oozing from every pore on your body.

Everyone came to see her perform her single at the Atlantic City Resort Hotel instead of attending Austin's batchelor party.  It seemed like a very contrived situation, pitting her performance against Austin's party.  I'm sure that if everyone had their druthers, they would have neither attended her show or Austin's party.
