Genetic Link found – Men being born Homosexual


A new study of gay men in the U.S. has found that male sexual orientation is influenced by genes passed on by the mother.
The British newspaper the Guardian reports that in a test of 400 gay men, genes on at least two chromosomes affected whether a man is gay.

“The study shows that there are genes involved in male sexual orientation,” said Michael Bailey, a psychologist at Northwestern University in Illinois, who set out the findings at a discussion event held in conjunction with the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Chicago.
Bailey has not yet published the work, but said it confirmed the findings of a smaller study that sparked widespread controversy in 1993, when Dean Hamer of the U.S. National Cancer found that more than 10 percent of brothers of gay men were gay themselves, compared to around 3 percent of the general population.
Bailey added that while genes play a role, so do multiple other factors including hormone levels in the womb.
“Sexual orientation has nothing to do with choice,” said Bailey. “We found evidence for two sets [of genes] that affect whether a man is gay or straight. Full story here!

Gay Genes and Gay Jeans



Fabric scientists at Betabrand have announced the discovery of Gay Jeans, proof that some denim really is just born that way.

News of this revelation has reignited the debate surrounding issues of denim equality. Denim advocates are heralding the discovery, pointing to it in their argument for equal treatment for different types of jeans.

Gay Jeans begin life looking and acting like regular 5-pocket denim jeans, but as they experience normal washing and wearing over the course of their life, their indigo dye gradually fades away, revealing fabulously colorful yarns just waiting to come out.

Says Dr. Ame Corwin, Advanced Materials Researcher at Betabrand, “We hope Gay Jeans will help end generations of exclusion and unfair treatment for atypical denim. All jeans deserve equal rights, regardless of color, creed, and fiber content.”

Q: What’s the difference between Slim-Cut Gay Jeans and Stretch-Skinny Gay Jeans?

A: Gay Jeans can be worn by anyone! However, there are some key differences between the two versions: The Slim Cut is based on Betabrand’s classic 5-pocket Sons of Britches men’s jeans. They are a regular fit through the seat and thigh, and are slim/straight width through the leg. The Stretch Skinny is based on the women’s version of Sons of Britches; they’re great if you want a super-skinny pair of jeans with enough stretch to be comfortable. They have a slightly shorter rise, more allowance for hips, and are narrow all the way down the leg.

Q: How long do I have to wait for my Gay Jeans to come out of the closet?

A: They’ll come out when they’re good and ready!

Seriously though, we found the colors start to show after about a week of wear, plus one wash cycle. You’ll have to be a little patient though, as the colors come out gradually. Good things take time!

If you want to speed things up, try putting them on and rubbing wear into areas like the tops of your thighs, hem, pocket openings, etc. with a fine grit sandpaper before washing. Learn more about properly distressing denim here.

Gay News from Oregon – Students Make GAY IS NOT OK shirts

students who bully and hate gays

Students wearing anti-gay T-shirts to class disrupted Oregon City High School’s celebration of unity Friday.

Friday was National Day of Silence. It’s where students take some form of silence to call attention to the bullying of the LGBT community in schools.

Two students told KATU News that if the school is supporting Day of Silence, then they have the right to speak out against it.

They wore T-shirts to school that said, “Gay Is Not Ok” and “Gay Day Is Not OK,” which is a reference to Day of Silence. They sought out a KATU reporter to be interviewed.

Why were the shirts allowed???



Hero Cop is Really Child Molester

pee shy jesse archer

Actor  writer Jesse Archer blogged today about a new book, Pee-Shy.

In his poignant memoir, Pee Shy, Frank Spinelli writes about an important topic so many are reluctant to talk about. He was abused by his boy scout leader as a child and what was unresolved back then he daringly confronts thirty years later and ultimately finds justice.

After confessing the abuse he suffered as an 11 year old at the hands of a boy scout leader, who was also a cop, his parents did not prosecute but let it go and pretended it never happened. Later in life, he discovered his abuser, Bill Fox, had talked a suicidal teen boy from a ledge and then adopted him and wrote a book about it, portraying himself as a hero-cop. When he discovered that Fox had also taken in fifteen other young boys, Spinelli knew he had to take action and he becomes a one-man predator catcher.

The book is a slow burner, carefully setting the stage to show how a Catholic Italian family from Staten Island became convinced that the boy scouts would make a macho man out of their son, while ignoring all the troubling signs of a storm brewing.

Harvey Milk Stamp Coming May 22 2014

harvey milk stamp

Thirty-five years after Harvey Milk made history as California’s first openly gay elected leader, he’s closing in on another historical first.

The U.S. Postal Service announced last fall,  that the late San Francisco supervisor and civil rights leader will join the likes of John F. Kennedy, Rosa Parks and Jackie Robinson by being recognized with a commemorative stamp – an honor that had apparently never before gone to an openly gay politician.

The long-awaited Harvey Milk commemorative U.S. postage stamp will be released on May 22nd, 2014 — Harvey Milk Day.

The U.S. Postal Service is rumored to be considering Washington, D.C. and San Francisco, as cities for the first-day launch of the stamp. It is expected to roll out nationwide.



To coincide with the celebration of International Day of Transgender Visibility, activist and model Geena Rocero today launched her new a global awareness campaign, Gender Proud, which calls attention to the fact that there are only 8 countries where transgender individuals are able to change their gender marker without having to first undergo surgery. In addition, her recent TED talk, which garnered an immediate standing ovation and praise, goes live on the TED site at 11am EST.


‘I want people to realize that while gender identity is core to our being, sometimes our gender assignment doesn’t match. There should be space to self-identify,’ says Geena.


In the months ahead, Gender Proud will work alongside the ground-breaking LGBT justice organization AllOut to target countries where gender marker legislation is at a ‘tipping point’.


As it launches, Gender Proud has initiated a petition on Change.org (www.change.org/genderproud) that seeks to bring awareness to the issue at a broader level; simultaneously, an IndieGogo campaign will raise money for a national speaking tour by Rocero about the organization and the need for all transgender people to self-identify with the fewest possible barriers. The campaign will feature donation perks including a limited edition t-shirt designed by world-renown street artist Seizer One, and limited edition prints from award-winning Russian visual artist Uldus.


Geena’s talk marked the first time that TED has tackled transgender rights issues on the main stage.

“Every year we work to bring inspiring ideas and speakers from a wide range of backgrounds to the TED stage,” said Kelly Stoetzel, Director of TED Content. “This year, we were thrilled to have Geena join us. Her courageous story stands to help people everywhere think about gender in a new and nuanced way.”


I Am Divine – The Most Outrageous Drag Queen That Ever Lived

i am divine john waters

Before RuPaul, there was Divine.

She wasn’t much of a singer, but she certainly was a larger than life diva. From LA  to NY, EVERYONE  knew who Divine was!

Behind the famous drag queen persona was a man many of us know little about. Divine was born Harris Glenn Milstead in Baltimore, Maryland.  In the late 70′s  and  early 80′s  DIVINE became known as the most outrageous drag queen on Earth!

This new documentary is a MUST SEE – no matter if you remember her – or are a millennial, you need to be educated!

I Am Divine is the widely acclaimed new documentary from prolific filmmaker Jeffrey Schwarz (whose other gay documentary film portraits include Jack Wrangler, Vito Russo and an upcoming Tab Hunter project). I Am Divine brings to life the spectacular personality and amazing career of Divine through colorful interviews and archival footage from classics like Female Trouble, Polyester, Hairspray and Pink Flamingos (yes, including the dog-poop-eating scene!).

divine john waters

I Am Divine  shows Glenn from his humble beginnings as an overweight, teased Baltimore youth to internationally recognized drag superstar through his collaboration with filmmaker John Waters.

Spitting in the face of the status quos of body image, gender identity, sexuality, and preconceived notions of beauty, Divine was the ultimate outsider turned underground royalty. With a completely committed in-your-face style, he blurred the line between performer and personality, and revolutionized pop culture. I Am Divine is a definitive biographical portrait that charts the legendary icon’s emotional complexities and rise to infamy.


It is so sad, Glenn/Divine was really reaching mass popularity and stardom, right at the time he died. He passed away in L.A. of an enlarged heart at the age of 42, just three weeks after the  hit 1988 film Hairspray, costarring Ricki Lake and Sonny Bono hit theaters. It truly proved Divine as rounded actor – but sadly, that was the end of the road. Gone too soon.


The critics say-

“Divine gets her own well-deserved spotlight.” — Peter Debruge, Variety

“An enjoyably naughty trip through Divine’s career.” — John Defore, The Hollywood Reporter

“Captures the exuberant spirit of a time in which difference brought together like minds and changed attitudes.” — Mark James, Film School Rejects

“Just as garish, splashy, and loud as Divine himself.” — Drew Taylor, indieWire’s The Playlist

“A breathtaking and touching portrait of two people inside the same body.” — Joshua Brunstig, CriterionCast

Barney Frank Documentary will be Produced by Alec Baldwin

alec baldwin anti gay pro gay

A lot of people call Alec Baldwin  homophobic   and anti gay.

The former MSNBC host Alec Baldwin who came under fire in June for calling a reporter a “toxic little queen” on Twitter, has been caught on camera threatening the paparazzi and using anti-gay slurs while doing so.

TMZ, where you can watch the clip: The video shows Baldwin –  who was with his wife and baby  — taking off in angry pursuit after the pap (not ours) … yelling, cursing and calling him a “c**ksucking f*g.”

FAMOUS drag queen Lady Bunny came to his defense last month in Huffington Post. And I have to agree,  Should we really be decimating the man’s entire career over a few angry words that flew out of his mouth during an angry exchange at the end of a draining trial? Dan points out, “We often revert to high-school-era insults when we’re deeply upset.”

It’s a great read!

DEADLINE HOLLYWOOD  reports: Alec Baldwin has signed on as executive producer of Compared to What: The Improbable Journey of Barney Frank, a new documentary about the openly gay ex-Massachusetts Congressman which debuts next month at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Baldwin will be conducting a Q&A with Frank at Tribeca after the film’s April 27 festival premiere. “Barney Frank is a personal hero of mine,” he said in a statement. “His legacy in Congress – and his historic importance as the first openly gay and married Congressman – important for our country.”

Sir Elton John and David Furnish to wed in May


NINE YEARS ago the couple celebrated their civil union with a shindig and 600+  guests.

But the Daily Mail reports:

But as Sir Elton John, 67, and David Furnish, 51, announce plans to marry in May, this time the celebrations will be a lot more low-key.

After gay marriage was made legal in England and Wales on Saturday, the couple revealed they are planning to tie the knot again.

Despite Sir Elton’s love of hosting large parties, the couple are planning a small celebration for their gay marriage, with just their two sons Zachary, three; and Elijah, 14 months; and a few witnesses in attendance.

David explained: We do like big parties. Over eight years ago, we had 650 people on the 21st of December at our house in Windsor.

Kylie Minogue… Being A Gay Icon

kylie minogue gay icon

The 5’1” powerhouse pop pixie says she is proud to be an adopted icon of the LGBT community, but what makes her appeal to gay fans isn’t accidental and yet isn’t manufactured either. “I didn’t become a gay icon or become popular in the gay community for doing something specific. That happened just because I was being myself,” she says in an interview with the Advocate here.

Transgender Artists and Contemporary Art

zackary and rhys transgender

Photography, video, sculpture, classical music and the spoken word, transgender artists are sharing their stories and experiences, their trauma and hope, their pasts and futures — on their own terms.

Brendan Eich – New Ceo for Mozilla

brendan eich homo phobe

After nearly a year of searching,(really?  one year?)  the Mozilla Foundation announced the hiring of longtime CTO Brendan Eich as its new CEO. The internal hire looks like Mozilla opted for a technological leader to head up the front office as opposed to a business school expert.

But much of the public reaction to his promotion skipped past that “can a coder run a company” question, focusing squarely on another financial issue. In 2008, Eich donated $1,000 in support of California’s Proposition 8, the ballot initiative that sought to ban gay marriage in the state. So shortly after the announcement of Eich’s hiring, the reaction came swiftly. In particular, developers came forward with a mix of boycotts and reluctant acceptance.

App developer Rarebit ignited the conversation by announcing that it pulled its apps from the Firefox Marketplace. In a statement, Rarebit CEO Hampton Catlin recalled the story of his own gay marriage experience in California, which allowed him to marry Rarebit co-founder Michael Catlin. Catlin called Eich out for both his Prop 8 donation and his choice not to apologize.

“We morally cannot support a foundation that would not only leave someone with hateful views in power but will give them a promotion and put them in charge of the entire organization,” he wrote.

Mozilla Education Lead Christie Koehler offered an internal perspective. She repeatedly expressed disappointment with the news of Eich’s Prop 8 donation but also insisted that she saw no reason for Mozilla’s principles of “openness, innovation, and opportunity” to change because of Eich’s new role. After expressing empathy for Mozilla’s search for the right internal hire, she praised the company’s LGBT-friendly benefits packages, its internal guidelines for participation, and its board of directors. Koehler asked anybody who shared her mixed sentiments to join her efforts in cementing Mozilla’s policies toward openness and inclusion.   SEE MORE HERE.


Firefox of course released a statement demonstrating their diversity.

But in this age of transparency companies should be looking for skeletons in everyones closet.

Some may argue, it was only $1000. What if he donated $1000  to the KKK? Are gay haters any less?


Tyler Glenn, Lead Singer of Neon Trees Comes Out


TYLER GLENN, the front man of Neon Trees (Utah New Wave-pop quartet) comes out this week  for  Rolling Stone.  He also says on his Facebook Page:

I don’t think I’m special for being a gay man. That’s not why I came out. I didn’t come out so all of you could say “i knew it” based on the clothes I wear or the way I dance. I never even thought I’d have to come out.

I’d be the 50 yr old living with dogs hiding my relationships living on a beach somewhere. Maybe then i’d be comfortable with it. But it was last summer, writing songs for the new album, being so fed up with “hiding” and being so ready to be “free” that I poured my heart out into music more than I’d ever had before. Music indeed was my first love. Not a boy. It was music that I had always had a torrid love affair with. I felt I owed him, the music, or her, the song. I had to be honest with that relationship.

It was the moment I let myself write about the years spent in falling for my straight friend or the song I let myself write about thinking it was ok to be alone forever because it was better than explaining myself. It was those truths that came out before I decided to. You can’t hide away forever. I don’t think i was even trying. But music never let me lie. Something always would come out in the songs.

So now you know what you may have always assumed. Good for you. How does it feel? Do you want a “gaydar” award? Do you want to be pat on the back because you can “spot them”?

It is not news. It is not meant to be salacious. Until you know what it’s like to hide, to keep away true happiness out of fear. That’s when you truly understand what it’s like. It’s not about coming out to wave a flag in another’s face. At least it’s not for me. For me its about finding the purist of peace. The absolute settling of my soul. The clearest vision of the road I want to take.

I’m 30. I don’t want to die anymore. I want to really live. Honestly, and fully. What an amazing place to be. For me it was a place I never cared about. Now all I want is to be honest.

That’s what this whole “coming out” thing is for me. It’s been quite a real and beautiful day to have so much compassion and love coming from strangers, fans that have been there since the beginning, new fans, family, friends. For someone like me, the eternal self deprecator, i just want to say thank you.
I guess the last thing I want to say tonight and for now is if you’re like me, a wanderer, a questioner, a soul searcher, a dreamer, or misunderstood for any reason at all: Come out.

Come out as a wanderer. Come out as a questioner. One day it wont matter. But it still does. Come out as YOU. That’s all I really can say. That’s what i’d say to me at 21, the scared return mormon missionary who knew this part of himself but loved God too. You can do both. Don’t let anyone tell you you can’t.

All my love and hope, and for now, back to the music.

XO Your friend, Tyler.

Theo James Nude in Bathtub! Talks Gay and Bi


Theo James will do for DIVERGENT  what Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner did for the Twilight Saga. Sexy sells and young girls and gay men, are buying! If successful, this film  will spawn a franchise that’s expected to rival the Hunger Games and Twilight sagas.It had a $56 Million opening this past weekend but getting some bad reviews. But it doesn’t matter. Reviews and dollars do not go hand in hand.

HOTTIE  Theo James  spoke with the Advocate last week and discussed how parallels could be drawn between between the movies premise and gay people….the interviewer asks,  “What if I told you Divergent could be interpreted as not only a gay allegory, but one that specifically highlights bisexuality?”

Theo sits up, cocks an eyebrow, and mulls over the question for a long moment before a wide grin settles across his face. “Yeah,” he says, nodding his head. “That’s an interesting parallel to make. I hadn’t connected those dots myself, but there’s definitely truth in there.”

When  asked  if  Theo  thinks we’ll see a film like Divergent featuring an LGBT hero in the near future he pauses for a moment and chews on his lower lip as he considers the question before responding. “It’s very hard to tell,” he says. “Because today there are great shows like Looking, poignant pieces of work that revolve around a central cast of characters that happen to be gay. But I remember when Queer as Folk came out and thinking, Things are changing. Maybe there will be more [shows like this]. And then suddenly there was a drought. Hopefully the day [we have a gay action hero] isn’t far away.”

Johnny Weir and Victor Voronov to Divorce

Johnny Weir & Victor Weir-Voronov's Birthday Celebration


Johnny Weir and Victor Voronov split after 2 year marriage. (Married Dec. 2011)

johnny weir and huband divorce 2014

It is with great sadness that I announce that my husband and I are no longer together. My heart hurts, and I wish him well.  JOHNNY  TWEETED. No matter what, I am a cheerleader of love and partnership and creation. I am sad yet I am thankful that I was loved and that I could love.


Just 2 weeks ago, the couple were in court for a domestic dispute, whereby Weir bit his now ex-husband, citing, “A marriage between two guys is different than what I imagine a marriage between a man and a woman [to be].

I mean, we’re both constantly trying to fight to wear the pants in the relationship.”  – Voronov dropped the charges and the case was dismissed.
“I have been sad for a long time,” he continued in the statement to Access. “And unfortunately don’t foresee a way to resolve our current marital issues.”
Johnny’s exclusive interview about the end of his marriage will air on Access Hollywood on TODAY.

Chick Fil A CEO Tries to Move Foward – But Has Not Changed His Beliefs

dan cathy chick fil a homophobia gay

Nearly a half century after opening his first Chick-fil-A, Truett Cathy announced in November 2013 he was stepping down as chairman of the restaurant chain and leaving it in the hands of Dan Cathy, his oldest son. Even if Truett is slowing down, his fast-casual juggernaut isn’t. It boosted sales by $500 million to an estimated $4.6 billion in 2012.

DAN CATHY  as we know has donated MILLIONS $$$  to groups who are against gay people and even including ones that want to criminalize and deport gay “pedophiles”. Dan Cathy has repeatedly made statements opposing same-sex marriage.

I think the time of truths and principles are captured and codified in God’s word and I’m just personally committed to that, [Cathy] said. I know others feel very different from that and I respect their opinion and I hope that they would be respectful of mine.

He recently talked with the Atlanta Journal-Constition and admits his beliefs have NOT changed, but yet he wants his business to move beyond his personal beliefs.

Almost two years after he made headlines by throwing his support behind traditional marriage and later decried a pair of Supreme Court decisions that favored same-sex unions, Cathy hasn’t changed his mind. But he said Atlanta-based Chick-fil-A has no place in the culture wars and regrets making the company a symbol in the marriage debate.  READ  MORE  AT  AJC
