Dan Savage IMPEACH TRUMP

GAY NEWS –

 

Dan Savage is using his disdain for President Donald Trump for great causes.

The LGBTQ rights activist and author announced April 18 that he’d raised $100,000 for three organizations that are in direct opposition to Trump policies through the sale of ITMFA, orImpeach The Mother F*cker Already,” merchandise.

Savage, 52, made the announcement on the weekly Seattle newspaper, The Stranger, and on his personal Instagram.

I’m mailing out checks today—and not just to the IRS. This morning I had the distinct pleasure of mailing off checks to Planned Parenthood ($33,333.34), the ACLU ($33,333.33) and the International Refugee Assistance Project ($33,333.33)—money we raised selling ITMFA (“Impeach The Mother Fucker Already”) buttons, t-shirts, hats, stickers, coffee cups, and lapel pins at www.ITMFA.org and www.impeachthemotherfuckeralready.com. And I got to mail those checks out because nearly 10,000 Savage Love readers and Savage Lovecast listeners have ordered #ITMFA gear over the last eight weeks! The best part of wearing ITMFA buttons or t-shirts or hats or lapel pins or all of the above? Or the second best part, I should say, after helping to raise money for three critically important and hugely effective organizations fighting Donald Trump? The interactions you have with friends, co-workers, neighbors, at anti-Trump marches, on the bus, etc. Because when people are going to ask you what ITMFA stands for and YOU GET TO TELL THEM it stands for ‘Impeach The Mother Fucker Already!” (If there are kids around you can go with “Malicious Fascist” or “Malodorous Fart” or “Malignant Fraud.”) We sell the buttons in ten packs (ten for $10) so you can share buttons with people who absolutely have to have one after they find out what it means!

Gay Colors and Gay Clothes

DOUCHEBAG INDIANA GOVERNOR

MIKE PENCE is at it again!

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence signed an executive order Wednesday that bans what he called “gay colors” to be worn by boys in public elementary and secondary schools in the state.

Pence referred to pink, chartreuse, teal and magenta, in particular, as “gateway colors” for young boys who might have an inclination toward homosexuality.

“Governor Pence believes that if boys wear clothes with colors traditionally worn by young girls, this can cause gender confusion for the boy,” said Hugh Strait, a spokesman for the governor.

Pence’s announcement comes as the state prepares for Tuesday’s presidential primary.

The executive order comes as other states have passed laws that critics say discriminate against gays and LGBTs.

Adidas Gay pride Shoe

addidas gay pride shoes

WOW – this is pretty  cool!  Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Gay Pride!

Inspired by the unjust treatment of the gay and lesbian community in the 1960’s, adidas shows support for the community at-large with an admirable new release.

Outsole Independence Hall in Philadelphia on July 4, 1965  was  the first ever LGBT picket.

The same year, adidas named its flagship tennis shoe the “Robert Haillet” after the French tennis pro. That shoe, of course, went on to become the Stan Smith following Haillet’s retirement from the game. It’s now the best selling adidas sneaker of all-time.

Crafted in a bold paint splatter aesthetic, a rainbow undertone is noted through the pack in honor of those affected years ago, and those still struggling for acceptance today. The inspired adidas “Pride” Pack drops on June 6 at select Three Stripes retailers.

I could not find the price yet…lets  hope there are lot less than Kanye’s Yeezy’s   which are $350!

I’D Bottom For Hillary

Id bottom for Hillary

Leave it to some clever and witty queens to come up with this!

The website  explains, “We are small but powerful group that encourages Hillary Clinton to run for President in 2016. We recognize the unbelievable force that is Hillary Clinton. So much so, that we admit that we would willingly bottom for her.

It does not matter if you usually bottom, or if you usually top but can’t resist the Clinton. She is a bad ass bitch. She is the head bitch in charge. She is the Ma’damnnnnn President.

Ideally we would be bottoming for her as we were voting for her.

We will display our love for Hillary but informing the world of our desire to bottom for her. Buy a shirt, have no shame, and vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Get the details  at  FUSION.

“With bottoming, there’s a lot that goes into it,” Ryan said in a phone interview late Sunday. “A lot of homosexuals understand the concept. Bottoming for someone takes a lot of trust and understanding.”

#TheGaySweater Project

 

the-gay-sweater-project

 

You’ve probably heard it, if not said it yourself, but you’ll be certain to think twice about using a phrase like “that sweater is so gay” after hearing this story. A one-of-a-kind, first-ever, truly ‘gay sweater’ will be unveiled today during Toronto Fashion Week. What makes it gay? It is custom knit from the donated hair of more than 100 LGBT people committed to changing the way the word “gay” is used in society today.

 

gay-hair-sweater-project

Debuting just in time, ahead of this summer’s upcoming Pride Week celebrations in Toronto, New York, San Francisco and London, The Gay Sweater was created by the Canadian Centre for Gender and Sexual Diversity (CCGSD) to spark a rich dialogue on what makes something ‘gay’. Through #TheGaySweater project, they hope people will understand that it is incorrect and offensive to use language like ‘that’s so gay’ to negatively describe something.

 

A short film showcasing the inspiration behind this #TheGaySweater and the making of this unusual piece can be viewed here: thegaysweater.ccgsd-ccdgs.org

This is pretty cool!

Dolce Gabbana Against Gay Adoption

dolce and gabanna gay marriage adoption

In a 2006 interview with an Italian newspaper, Dolce (of Dolce & Gabbana) expressed  views against gays adopting, saying:

“I am opposed to the idea of a child growing up with two gay parents. A child needs a mother and a father. I could not imagine my childhood without my mother. I also believe that it is cruel to take a baby away from its mother.”

NOW,

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana say: ‘The only family is the traditional one’   –  in an interview with Italy’s Panorama magazine.

Sir Elton John has called for a boycott of fashion label Dolce & Gabbana after the legendary designers criticised same-sex families.

In a scathing post on picture sharing site Instagram, the furious singer branded Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana “judgmental” and “archaic”.

It followed an interview with the designers in Italy’s Panorama magazine in which the pair said: “We oppose gay adoptions. The only family is the traditional one.

“No chemical offsprings and rented uterus: life has a natural flow, there are things that should not be changed.”

elton-john-instagram

Dolce added that procreation “must be an act of love”, saying: “You are born to a mother and a father – or at least that’s how it should be.

“I call children of chemistry, synthetic children. Rented uterus, semen chosen from a catalog.”

Gabbana added: “The family is not a fad. In it there is a supernatural sense of belonging.”

How can gay people  say this???? You are in the public eye and gay people buy your clothes!  LIE if you disagree.

  An estimated 37% of LGBT adults have had a child and there are an estimated 6 million children with LGBT parents.

BEZAR Cool Art and Design Stuff

bezar-art-cool-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.

FCKH8 Male Model Charity Calendar

Straight and Gay Hunks Get Naked Together, Lowering Their Underwear to Raise Awareness and Funds with 2015 HIV/AIDS Charity Calendar
FCKH8.com Teams Up with Photographer Justin Monroe  to Create Sexy Poolside Photo Spread.

Hot on the heels of the massive viral success of their anti-sexism “Potty-Mouth Princesses” video that garnered almost 20 million views and raised $30,000 for charities promoting girls and women’s rights, FCKH8.com is campaigning to benefit HIV/AIDS charities with a sexy new 2015 benefit calendar that features straight and gay men getting naked together for a cause.

Lensed by renowned photographer Justin Monroe, and promoted by the gay social app Jack’d, the 12 month photo calendar features beefy straight and gay hotties stripped down to their bathing suits… or their birthday suits. The calendar, as well as the behind the scenes video that shows even more of the guys than the calendar does, were shot by the pool in the Hollywood hills in the hot California sun.

With a behind-the-scenes video on the FCKH8.com home page, the 9 inch x 12 inch glossy calendar is available for purchase for $9.99 on the FCKH8.com campaign website. To support the cause, 50% of all the money raised will go to HIV/AIDS charities that online supporters will be able to vote for on the campaign’s Facebook page.

The video and calendar shoot were made with the help of the guys at Jack’d, the fastest-growing gay social app in the world, who are promoting the cause to their audience of millions of gay and bi men to turn them on and turn up their support.

Fashion Week Groupies Who Know Nothing

Why do people lie when they know nothing about a topic of conversation?

As  Fashion Week was wrapping up in New York City  Jimmy Kimmel  sent a crew to Lincoln Center and asked people about designers, trends and events that do not exist. (Chandler Bing, Betsey Ross, Bartles & Jaymes, Teddy Ruxpin, Antonin Scalia, and Phil Robertson).

Somehow that didn’t stop them from giving their opinions in this special Fashion Week Edition of #LieWitnessNews.

Many of people were gay and made fools of themselves!

68?!  Seriously?!

Still just as dazzling and stunning  as she always has been.  The Grammy, Emmy and Oscar winner is  still a diva and icon!

I read that much of the “Dressed to Kill” tour is reminiscent of/taken from Cher’s residency show at the Colosseum in Caesars Palace that ran from May 2008 to February 2011 — the fabulous costumes, “The Beat Goes On, “Half Breed” and “Believe” — while “I Got You Babe,” the “Burlesque” numbers and “Woman’s World,” “Dressed to Kill,” “Take It Like a Man” and “I Hope You Find It” from “Closer to the Truth” are new and certainly high-energy and entertaining.

The set is gorgeous, and the costumes eye popping!

More cities coming in October and November, if you have not seen her yet, GET TICKETS!!

Gay Genes and Gay Jeans

gay-jeans-genes-news

 

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.

ABBA’s Crazy Costumes Had a Reason Behind Them

Abba ABBA-early-costumes

platinum-abba costumes

The glittering hotpants, sequined jumpsuits and platform heels that Abba wore at the peak of their fame were designed not just for the four band members to stand out – but also for tax efficiency, according to claims over the weekend.

Swedish law meant costumes could be deducted against tax so long as they were so outrageous they could not possibly be worn on the street.

The History of New York Nightlife

Surveying the evolving nature of nightlife in New York City, THE FUN: The Social Practice of Nightlife in NYC
is a first-of-its-kind publication, documenting the new forms of
nightlife practitioners to emerge since the turn of the millennium.
Through profiles of over 30 artists, including the royalty of Manhattan
nightlife like Susanne Bartsch and Ladyfag; hybrid forms like Xtapussy
and FCKNLZ; the continuation of minimal wave and goth communities
through Pendu Disco; and the vibrant queer scenes of JUDY, Frankie
Sharp, and My Chiffon is Wet, THE FUN documents the rich
contemporary cultural activity keeping NYC as weird and innovative as
decades past. 
Accompanying these profiles are essays by a range of
voices in the nightlife, including artists Rob Roth and Genesis
P-Orridge, curators and critics Claire Bishop and Jake Yuzna, as well as
journalist Michael Musto providing both historical context and
contemporary understanding of nightlife as a vital artistic practice
that has been marginalized by the arts sector for hundreds of years. 
THE FUN traces the history of nightlife as it has evolved,
from the explosion of large and small discos throughout the 1970s like
Studio 54, which paved the way for 80s megaclubs; the candy-colored club
kid movement of Michael Alig and the Limelight in the early 90s; the
parallel expansion of the boundary shattering merger of drag,
performance, and music in downtown venues such as the Pyramid Club and
Mother; the rise of Brooklyn as a new focal point in the 2000s with the
emergence of Luxx, Secret Project Robot, Silent Barn and other hybrid
arts/music/nightlife venues; and on into the many vibrant forms found
today.
 (Paperback, 8.5 x 10.33 inches, 336 pages, ISBN:
978-1-57687-659-6, $39.95)
Richie Rich and Traver Rains, aka  Heatherette got to enjoy the club scene as well as celebrity and notoriety. Pop culture loved Heatherette, but so did society princesses. Everyone
from Paris Hilton and Lydia Hearst to the Backstreet Boys, Foxy Brown
and Gwen Stefani
was drawn to their taste for sparkly streetwear glam.
“The clothes were attention getting and fun,” Heatherette’s longtime
friend and muse Amanda Lepore remembers. “They had a distinct look,
which at that time — everyone wanted it. David LaChapelle was using it. All the
celebrities wanted it. It was in demand.”   (from Paper Mag). 
Since their last show Rains moved to LA to pursue photography
while Rich is set to launching two fashion lines this spring: Rich
& Warr, a mens line, and a womens, Chantilly Rich, with Chantilly
Lace designer, Chantelle Warr. Although busy, Rich still has his eye on
the club scene. “It’s been fun watching the new generation of kids. When
I moved to New York I was ‘the new’ to the old nightlife generation,”
Richie says. “Now it’s fun to see all the new kids coming on the block
and dressing up. I feel like the style is coming back. Who knows, maybe
Heatherette will too.”

Do Single Gay Men Have Dirty Sheets?

Beds are sanctuaries, (for most people) it’s the place where we begin and end each day. And get the much needed sleep we deserve. But for
some British men, keeping that sanctuary tidy by changing the bed
sheets on a regular basis apparently falls low on their priority list. A
new survey by U.K. mattress company Ergoflex reveals that young, single British men are the worst offenders, changing sheets a mere once every three months. – Probably straight men, I would imagine. 

Single women (and probably gay men!)  reported swapping linens every two and a half weeks, while
couples claimed to change sheets every two weeks. Of those couples, the
study found 81% of those washing the sheets were women. Of the 2,004
interviewed, on average men admitted to owning only one set of sheets
while women estimated around three selections.

“One person can perspire as much as a liter in a night—even more if you have a lot of covers,” an Ergoflex spokesman  told the Wall Street Journal. He also explained that skin cells are a source of food for mites, who are
known to fester in mattresses and bedding, and also leave their feces
behind. Fungal mold, fungal spores, lint, fibers, pollen, soil and
cosmetics also accumulate in the often harmless looking sheets.
