Mario Testino Taschen Book SIR

SIR-male-models-fashion-book

A gallery of men from photography’s maestro

The way men are seen in photography, in fashion, and the way that men look at pictures of themselves has changed in recent years. It is a subject that has come into focus: The masculine image, a man’s personal style, changing attitudes to the male face and body.”
— Mario Testino

In this Limited Edition of 1,000 numbered copies, Mario Testino presents over 300 photographs in his search to define the allure of men.

Featuring an essay by Pierre Borhan, an interview with Patrick Kinmonth, and many previously unpublished works from Testino’s archive of thousands, the book traces the evolution of male identity over the past three decades. Costume, tradition, gender play, portraiture, photojournalism, and fashion collide as Testino observes masculinity in all its modern manifestations: through the dandy and the gentleman, the macho and the fey, the world-famous face to the unknown passerby.

Hate in America

hate-and-homophobia

For more than 30 years, Emmy-winning journalist, documentary filmmaker, and Al Jazeera America anchor Tony Harris has reported on senseless and vicious acts of violence, many fueled by intolerance, fear and hate. In the new one-hour special HATE IN AMERICA, Harris partners with The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a non-profit that has been tracking hate groups across the country since 1971, and NBC News’ award-winning production arm Peacock Productions, to examine the current realities of intolerance in America. According to the SPLC, more than 900 active hate groups currently exist across the United States, from neo-Nazis to anti-government militias, targeting entire classes of people for their race, religion, and sexuality, among other immutable characteristics. Largely propagated by anger and fear over the nation’s ailing economy and the diminishing white majority, that number has been on the rise for over a decade. Traveling to communities torn apart by violence, Harris pulls back the curtain on what drives modern-day hate, and comes face to face with its victims to examine HATE IN AMERICA, premiering on Monday, February 23 at 8/7c only on Investigation Discovery (ID).

 

“Tony Harris’ journey across the country in HATE IN AMERICA is a heart-breaking reminder of the hate that still exists in our country today and, in fact, around the world as we learn of the horrors faced in the recent Sydney hostage situation or the Taliban attack on a Pakistani school,” said Henry Schleiff, Group President of Investigation Discovery, Destination America, American Heroes Channel, Discovery Fit & Health, and Discovery Family Channel. “Despite these setbacks in our pursuit for tolerance, Tony’s fervent investigation in HATE IN AMERICA provides a glimmer of hope that there are undeniable signs of progress, people fighting back, and fighting for our future.”

 

“I remain deeply moved by the willingness of the people I met to share the stories of how their lives have been changed forever by hate and intolerance,” said Harris. “I can’t imagine anyone being unaffected by these powerful testimonials.”

HATE IN AMERICA features the racially charged murder of a black father in Mississippi who died after being beaten and run over; the gruesome mass shooting of a Wisconsin Sikh congregation; and a brutal anti-gay attack on the streets of New York City. As Harris explores the motivations behind hate, he hears from a spectrum of advocates for change, including victims’ loved ones, community leaders, civil rights attorneys, SPLC’s founder Morris Dees, and even a former white supremacist – who now crusades for unity among the races.

Sexy Steve Grand First Album in March

steve grand gay chicago

CHICAGO’s sexy and talented Steve Grand is gearing up for release his debut album All American Boy March 24 after a very successful Kickstarter last year, Out reports:

Grand is an openly gay singer who’s certainly country-inspired, but does not self-identify as a country artist. “Music is subjective,” Grand says, “The lines of life are blurring. We are seeing that in music as in sexuality and gender identity…There’s nothing different about my music just because I’m gay. I sing about things that I go through, but they are things that we all go through, regardless of sexual orientation.” […]

A full-length album has also allowed Grand to follow an arc or storyline. “Each song needed to function as a plot point on that arc. A lot of things in life follow that trajectory, where there’s a beginning, middle, and end. Relationship do that, growing up does that, life does that.” Every number, Grand adds, ”explores some kind of relationship, whether it be a relationship with a romantic partner, a relationship with a friend, a relationship with the past, a relationship with something destructive, a relationship with a community.”

Chelsea Handler poses topless with Star of David pasties while riding a camel in Israel!

“A Muslim allowed a topless Jew to sit on his camel,” the outspoken comedian captioned a photo on Instagram Wednesday that shows her riding a camel wearing only Star of David pasties, black slacks and black boots.

The 39-year-old former “Chelsea Lately” host arrived in Israel over the weekend and performed at a fund-raiser in Tel Aviv on Sunday supporting Sheba Medical Center’s Tal Center for Integrative Oncology, according to the Jerusalem Post.

In addition to her benefit comedy gig, Handler also filmed a one-on-one interview with former Israeli President Shimon Peres and paid a visit to Jerusalem.

NETFLIX  will be airing 3  Chelsea specials this year and her new talk show, following her long run on E!, is set to begin in 2016 and will be the first programming of its kind on the Netflix streaming service.

Lesbians in Alabama Need Help

It is sad that we have to PAY to defend ourselves and what is right. There should be a reimbursement system in place. ALABAMA should be eating these court costs!

“The two women in Mobile are the bravest two women I’ve ever known,” [Alabama Rep. Patricia Todd, D-Birmingham] said. “They’ve been through a lot, and they will continue to go through a lot, and we can never forget them.”

Todd said Searcy and McKeand have “incurred a great debt over legal fees” in their eight-year fight to have their California marriage recognized. She urged attendees to donate to the couple at their website, IAmAParent.com.

[Living in Limbo Executive Director Lara] Embry said Searcy and McKeand are $40,000 in legal debt “because they fought this fight for a long time in Alabama while we were not considered low-hanging fruit to national organizations who would then pitch in and help with that fight.”

“If you want to send someone a wedding gift, maybe make it honor of Cari and Kim, and make a donation to help them, to help pay for marriage equality in Alabama,” Embry said. “Because they got the bill.”

I AM MICHAEL – New Coming Out Film

-i-am-michael-stills-main-

PHOTO: James Franco is teasing the Sundance premiere of his new film by teasing co-stars Zachary Quinto and twink cutie Charlie Carver in a steamy hot shirtless pic of them sucking face and going at it.

 

Perhaps the most controversial movie at this year’s Sundance Film Festival is I Am Michael, which stars James Franco as Michael Glatze, the prominent gay rights activist who became a Christian, turned against his old allies, and declared that he was no longer gay.

 A remarkably even-handed account of outspoken gay-rights journalist Michael Glatze’s 180-degree identity reversal, which shocked friends and admirers after he found religion, rejected his queer “lifestyle” and became a Christian pastor.

While admirable in its seeming impartiality, Justin Kelly’s hot-potato directorial debut won’t be seen by many beyond the arthouse and festival circuit, but it will nevertheless rile viewers and provoke discussion on all sides, simply because it cuts to the heart of the self-doubt, fear and prejudice associated with modern homosexuality.

Kelly clearly wants to be as fair as possible to the facts, which found their way to him via executive producer Gus Van Sant. The “Milk” director had read a story in the New York Times called “My Ex-Gay Friend,” written by Benoit Denizet-Lewis, one of Glatze’s former colleagues at XY magazine. The world is full of stories of young people who have gone through anti-gay conversion (or “reparative”) therapy, though Glatze’s case is unique in that he had been a vocal activist for gay teens, serving as managing editor of XY as a means of reaching other confused young men who might otherwise be depressed or suicidal without positive gay imagery and role models.

(Read more at Variety)

Zachary Quinto stars opposite Franco as Bennett, Glatze’s longtime boyfriend. SLATE  asked the openly gay actor (who was joined for the interview by producer Neal Dodson) whether he’d had an opportunity to meet Glatze and his ex-boyfriend, and why he wanted to make a movie about the controversial figure.

Gay Health News – Truvada

FDA HIV Drug

In a new article,

The scientific community and HIV/AIDS activists are abuzz about the preliminary findings of a new PrEP study showing not only the effectiveness of the treatment overall, but the success of an innovative regimen wherein participants took PrEP only when they anticipated having sex instead of taking it daily as it is currently prescribed.

Participants in the IPERGAY trial, which occurred in France and Canada and closed early due to high effectiveness, took two pills of Truvada in the 24-hour period before anticipated sex and, if sex occurred, then took two separate one-pill doses of the drug in the two days following sex. IPERGAY investigators did not release any effectiveness figures or other data, but will do so once a complete analysis of the results has been completed, which they say should be sometime in early 2015.

BEZAR Cool Art and Design Stuff

Bezar connects people who design special things

with people who desire special things.

After a year of soul-searching, Fab cofounder and former creative director Bradford Shellhammer is back in the flash sales game with his forthcoming startup Bezar, an online short-term sales hub for designers who are hand picked by Shellhamm.

Sound familiar? Shellhammer admits that the site, when it launches this spring, will work a lot like the original Fab.

Although he’s not calling Bezar a flash sales site, but rather a collection of pop-up shops, “because it’s a little different from flash,” Shellhammer said. “This is not excess inventory.

bezar-cool-stuff-for-sale

What sets Bezar apart from Fab, Shellhammer says, is partnerships with more established brands, which will use the platform to sell designer collaborations and new collections.

The initiative has also collected an interesting crew of advisers and angel investors, including Whoopi Goldberg and the design guru Yves Behar. Shellhammer will act as CEO, a more operations-oriented role than he had at Fab; his founding team includes former private equity investor Justin Chen as CFO and former Fab employees Matt Baer (also of Quirky) and PieterJan Mattan as COO and creative director, respectively.

Gay Male Models Rhodes Twins Come OUT

rhodes-twins-gay-male-models

YouTube personalities and male models Austin and Aaron Rhodes have had a significant social media following since they began loading clips to their channel nearly six months ago.

This week, the 20 year old pair decided to start off 2015 in a major way by utilizing their platform to both come out as gay to their father over the phone while recording the event in order to share it with their followers — and the world.

This video inspires a roller coaster of emotions, as the boys initially struggle to get the words out. When they finally do, their father offers a  good  response to his sons: “It’s the way things are, you know? You’re grown people. You grew up in a lot different generation than me. I just don’t really know what to say — you know I love you both and that’ll never change.” – – I wish parents would not say things like, “It’s just the way it is ” – or “well it’s  your choice..it’s  your life….” – IT’S  NOT A CHOICE. But I am sure the news caught him off guard and at least it was not a negative response.

 

You may remember last summer, another set of male twins, Adam and Luke came out to their family on YouTube.

Will Gays Boycott Coors? Again?

out-is-refreshing-coors-light

Most of you may be too young, but in the late 70’s  the LGBT Community called  for a boycott of Coors, that lasted for years!

While BOTH actor Gary Sinise, and FOX News Anchor Bret Baier,have cancelled,  Pete Coors, the Chairman of the Molson Coors Brewing Company  along with Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and NYC Archbishop Timothy Dolan, are still planning to  headlining the annual conference of the Catholic Legatus organization that harbors very hateful views on gays, supports “gay conversion” therapy and calls same-sex attraction a ‘disorder’.

The Coors family still supports extreme right wing anti-gay groups and politicians to this day through their foundations and individual Coors family members who profit from the brewery. Coors wants lesbians and gay men to buy their beer so they can use the profits to fund right wing attacks on our civil rights.

Beneficiaries of the Coors’ largesse include: The Heritage Foundatio.  The Center for the Study of Popular Culture, David Horowitz’ far right wing group. Horowitz has written demagogically, blaming gay men for the spread of AIDS and The Council for National Policy, a group of far right wing anti-gay bigots include and have included Pat Robertson, Phyllis Schlaffly, Jerry Falwell, Oliver North, Gary Bauer, Ralph Reed, Ed Meese, Lon Mabon and Sen. Jesse Helms.

Saks Fifth Avenue Transgender Discrimination

saks-fifth-avenue-transgender-discrimination

I could see WALMART doing this….but  Saks  Fifth Avenue???

Leyth O. Jamal, a transgender woman living in Texas, has filed a federal lawsuit against her former employer, Saks Fifth Avenue, alleging that she was exposed to a hostile working environment at the luxury department store’s Houston-area location, reports local news station KPRC.

In a statement from her attorney, Jamal describes being harassed and belittled by coworkers, being forced to use the men’s restroom, withstanding intentional and repeated use of male pronouns by her coworkers, and ultimately being fired. Following this alleged mistreatment, she filed a claim of workplace discrimination with the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the federal agency that enforces Title VII of the Civil Rights Amendment of 1964, including protecting workers from sex-based discrimination. Full story at ADVOCATE.

Attorneys for the company also blatantly misgendered Jamal in court documents and alleged the retailer isn’t bound by its own nondiscrimination policy, which covers transgender workers.

 

BuzzFeed reports:

“Saks’ arguments are hugely concerning to us,” the director of HRC’s Workplace Equality Program, Deena Fidas, said in a statement provided to BuzzFeed News. “In its court filings, Saks attempts to secure a motion to dismiss Ms. Jamal’s allegations by simultaneously calling into question the validity of its own non-discrimination policy and the larger, crucial protections afforded by Title VII.”

Regarding its Corporate Equality Index, an effort to alert consumers to pro-LGBT or anti-LGBT policies of companies, Fidas added: “The policies our CEI advances are not window dressings for any company to prop up or disregard in the face of individual allegations of misconduct. Saks is publicly undercutting the applicability of its own policies reported in the CEI and we must suspend Saks’ CEI score until further notice.”

A huge backlash AGAINST  SAKS  has already started.
