Florida Jury says no to gay panic defense....

izz: Anibal Mayor’s 28, choked and stabbed 60, Dean Blietz to death claiming in fear that he was going to sexually assault him. Blietz who took Mayor in after his release from prison on a five year burglary charge, ran a ministry to help ex-convicts. Mayor had only been there a month when he claims that Blietz put his hand on his thigh, which made him panic because of a prison rape he endured while incarcerated...Yeah ok. I'm buying that alright. A 26  yr old man (at the time) being afraid of a 60 year old. No.  Plus Mayor's story has changed from his original claims of killing Blietz for money so he could by drugs. This sounds more like it.  I am sure these claims were a last ditch effort by him and the defense team to get a lighter sentence if not get off completely.  Thank god the jury did not buy it and were not homophobic. Mayor was found guilty of murder....Well i bet he's wishing he let him just "touch" his thigh , cause he is going to get more then that now....

"Homosexual" was suppose to take out Ted Kennedy...

izz: Ted Kennedy's FBI files contained this little hysterical nugget i read. It seams that during the 1980 democratic convention some crack pot psychic claimed that Kennedy was going to be shot three times and the person  was going to be a "homosexual" or "pretty" with dark hair....LOLS. Homosexual and pretty with dark hair is the same to me....Thank god  James Van Praag wasn't correct cause god knows where we'd be today....

This is why discrimination must end...

izz: As Charlene Strong's wife lay dying in a hospital she was denied access. Even though i am gay and know the discrimination the gay community faces every day, watching this video was heart breaking. I can not for the life me understand anyone who could watch this regardless of their personal, religious or otherwise views and think that this discrimination is acceptable. Or how they could not apply it to themselves and say what if that were me? If they can, then i'd say that is the sadist person i know...

Oldest Gay bar anounces last call...


izz: The Brook Cafe in Westport, Ct. is closing it's doors after 71 years in business. Toted as the oldest gay bar in the country, the Brook has an extremely special place in my heart. I am from Westport, born and raised. My parents still live there and i go home twice a year, actually i will be there next month. The Brook holds some of the best memories of my life. I made treasured friendships from my many nights there and met the first love of my life singing at the piano upstairs.

I first became aware of the Brook when i was a kid. My birthday is Halloween and every year my parents would take us to my grandparents house so they could see our costumes. The Brook is at the corner of a 4 way intersection in which my grandparents house is down the road from. So after we left, my father would pull the station wagon to the side of the road and we would watch all the gays going into the bar with their outrageous costumes, oohing, aahing and critiquing them. I asked what is that place and my mother simply said "a place where people have fun". I was immediately drawn to it and knew innately i belonged there. That day would eventually come...

I first stepped inside the Brook Cafe when i was just about 22 years old and it changed my life. It was exhilarating to say the least. All the guys, all gay, young, old and most importantly all the freedom. I can remember it like it was yesterday. I could not possible condense into one writing all the years i spent at the Brook, but i will say Wednesday's were the best night there. It rocked. The place was packed and so much fun. Like i said before i met my first boy friend there, Michael, he was the piano man there on Wednesday's and Friday's and what a time those nights were. I had also met my second boy friend there as well as all of my gay friends whom i am still friendly with today. One said note, i did loose a good friend Jerry during the "Brook Days" , he was the first friend i lost to aid's. We were only 23 at the time. It was also a wealth of knowledge for me too, for i learned all about our gay culture and history through the older generations of guys there and realized how lucky i was to have the freedoms i did when they did not at my age. So many memories are flowing through my head right now, i cant even process them fast enough.

The Brook years during the 90's were some of the most incredible and unforgettable times in my life. I am so fortunate that i was able to have the oldest gay bar in my home town.  So thanks Brook for giving me the life, friends and loves i will never forget. And for giving us gays a home away from home with good drinks and great people for 71 years. You will truly be missed. 


here is the article about the closing 


The Mormon Proposition 8 documentry opens today...


izz: The documentary exposes the truth about the Mormons deep involvement in getting Prop 8 passed and over turning gay marriage in California, while they did everything they could to make it look like their roll was minimal. Putting their money through front groups. Cowardly scumbags... 3 quarters of the millions of dollars that was put in prop 8 was from the Mormon's...I'm going to see it this weekend. If its in your town, go see it.

go here for the trailer

Kathy rips Elizabeth...

I can't stand Elizabeth Hassleback, i never have. I think she is your typical Republican conservative who acts like an immature baby with her childish jabs and remarks. I loved it when Rosie was on because she was no match for Rosie or Joy or Whoopi, for that matter. They have had to school her far to many times...and i love it! Kathy Griffin was no exception. Now, i watched this segment from the beginning when it aired the other day. What you don't see in this clip is from the moment Kathy came out it's quite obvious Elizabeth was not happy. She had the nastiest puss on her face and her body language said she was annoyed and didn't want to be there. It's clear she does not like Kathy and true to form, right on display was her childish immature behavior. My favorite part of this clip is when Kathy comes back for one more jab " Is there anything else you's like to say Elizabeth?"


Christina never disappoints...

Here is Christina Aguilera belting out the National Anthem at the NBA finals last night. She is just flawless... 




Cristiano Ronaldo Nike video yum.....

The only thing i wish is that they focused more on him shirtless and in the locker room, plus it looks like there is a little shot of Beck's touching Crissy's chest...god i can't take it! HOT!





Happy Friday!!!

Love Fridays....They are so heavenly....So is that drink in the pic, mmmmm....

Bloomington, Indiana full of gays...

 Bloomington is “home to the nation’s fifth largest per capita population of same-sex couples and one of the most progressive cities in the Midwest, both socially and politically.”

izz: I just caught an article on 365gay about the top gay small cities in America and Bloomington came in at number 5. When i saw this it kicked up wonderful old memories for me. I have a great fondness for Bloomington. My best friend Alana went to IU and i would go out and visit her. I will never forget the first time i flew there. At that time you could still fly into Bloomington airport, so when my flight from NY got into Chicago around 8:30 that fall morning, i went to the gate to check in for my connecting flight. Imagine my face when i saw the 20-25 seater/puddlejumper/snoopy plane with wing supports and propellers that was to be my plane. Needles to say i parked my ass at the bar and downed as much booze as i could in the 45mins before the flight took off. We had a stop to make in Champagne, Il, first which the landing strip, I'm not kidding, was surrounded by corn fields, then it was on to Bloomington. We landed, i walked into the room, yes room (the entire airport was the size of basically some old time dmv) to get my luggage and there was a hole in the upper part of the wall where the luggage came through....it was certainly and eye opener for me.....

Once in Bloomington though, it was a whole different story. I immediately fell in love with it. I am a small town "girl" by heart so there was that element, but Bloomington still possessed  that certain quality of calm, neighborly life, long passed on the coastal towns. It had the essence of a throw back to the 50's and 60's. That first night there we roamed Kirkwood,  gorged on Mother Bear's Pizza and then hit The Video. Yes we were under age and had fake id's, it was much easier back then...

As every good little gay boy does, i found my way to Bullwinkles via my friend. I am sure there are those of you whom have fonder memories of Bulls then i do because it was "your" bar, i was a visitor after all. But i thoroughly enjoyed Bulls. I really did. They people, the atmosphere, the music, just fun, fun, fun. I met this guy there on one of my trips, who lived outside of town on a farm. I remember him and i climbing into his white pickup after the bar closed, getting white castle burgers and driving all around Bloomington showing me the local sites then parking near the quarry i believe (if memory serves) and just hanging out bull shitting for hours. He was your typical midwest corn fed hottie, i have often thought about him over the years...

I was sad to read that Bullwinkles closed in 2006. It was a fun place and I am glad i was one of the lucky ones to experience it. Bulls will forever be burned into the my memories of my gay youth. Anyway i have go on long enough. So I am not surprised that Bloomington ranks in the top 10 best gay small towns. It truly is a gem...

Softball team banned because of Lesbian coach...

Jana J. Jacobson the coach says that after her team joined the Bellevue Baptist Church league, she was questioned about her sexual orientation by administrators.

“Finally, in my frustration, I said that I am going to be clear. I am gay, and I find all of this to be absurd and against the word of God as I know it,” Jacobson said of a meeting with Bellevue officials.
        Church officials allegedly then banned Jacobson’s team from the church league.

According to Jacobson, Scotty Shows, the church's recreation administrator also attended the second meating, told her that because she was gay the team could not play. She was told the team's participation would send a message to the Bellevue members that the church condoned her lifestyle.

izz: Ok, i have said this before Southern Baptist are the most fucked up, bigoted assholes there are. Trust me i know two of them. First off its softball, you idiots. WTF? I know what the truth is here, those "southern baptist sissies" knew dam well their ass's were going to get handed to them by the big ol lezzies....LOLS! dam that would have been fun to see!

Drink your Green Tea!

izz: Ok i love Green Tea, i drink it all day long, room temperature, but if its really hot outside i will ice it down or during the winter i love it hot with some honey. Green Tea has so many health benefits, read 9 of them below. So you are not slurping it down now, you may want to start...

p.s. I use Lipton Green Tea Naturally Decaffeinated...I put 1 tea bag ( don't get excited pervs) into a 24 ounce BPA free stainless steel water bottle. I use store bought water because here in LA you might as well drink sewage water if your going to drink from the tap, just sayin....

1. Green tea is a superb fat fighter. Its active ingredient, EGCG, increases the rate at which fat is burned in your body.

2. It targets belly fat. Research at Tufts University indicates that EGCG in green tea, like other catechins, activate fat-burning genes in the abdomen to speed weight loss by 77 percent.

3. Green tea keeps energy stable by balancing blood sugar levels. EGCG improves insulin use in the body to prevent blood sugar spikes and crashes that can result in fatigue, irritability, and cravings for unhealthy foods.

4. Research shows it may be helpful against lung cancer. In an April 2010 study published in Cancer Prevention Research, EGCG was found to suppress lung cancer cell growth.

Jeremy London, held hostage and forced to smoke dope...

izz: Jeremy London from "Party of Five" fame, claims he was changing a flat tire on the side of the road in Palm Springs, when two guys pulled up in the guise of helping out the actor but instead kidnapped him at gunpoint and held him hostage for 5 hours. Two suspects were arrested. A police officer drove by while the two men were initially helping London and he confirmed their identity.  Holee shitz....not fun....

"He told officers [during the kidnapping] that he was forced to smoke dope and then purchase booze and hand it out in a gang area of Palm Springs," Sergeant Steve Douglas of the Palm Springs Police Department told RadarOnline.com.
 
Were they gang bangers? OMG i would die!

Gay-for-pay Porn star wanted for murder...

izz:Pasco Fl. detectives are looking for gay-for-pay porn actor Jason Richard Andrews in connection with the murder of tattoo shop owner Dennis Abrahamsen.  On gay sites (seancody.com) Andrews goes by the name of Addison, he is wanted for first degree murder. Cops found Abrahamsen laying face down on a massage table int his home, a stab wound to the back and his head bashed in possibly by a sledge hammer. Ewww, that must not have been a pretty sight.


Andrews was originally questioned in the murder after Amanda Logue identified him as the killer but he was later released do to lack of evidence. Logue has since been arrested on first degree murder charges. Now the hunt is on for Andrews...

Ted Olson's closing argument....


Here is a the end of Ted Olson's closing argument today in the prop 8 trial. Go to here to read the as it live proceedings.

I think, Your Honor, that this law is
discriminatory. The evidence is overwhelming that it
imposes great social harm on individuals who are our
equals. They are members of our society. They pay
their taxes. They want to form a household. They want
to raise their children in happiness, in the same way
that their neighbors do.
We are imposing great damage
on them by the institution of the State of California
saying they are different. And they cannot have the
happiness, they cannot have the privacy, they cannot
have the liberty, they cannot have the intimate {SOERBS}
in the context of a marriage that the rest of our
citizens do.  

We have demonstrated during this trial that
that causes grave and permanent irrelevant reppable and
totally unnecessary harm. Because we are withholding
from them a part of an institution of marriage that we
hold -- one of the language of one of those Supreme
Court decisions is intimate {PHAES} to the point of
being sacred, that right of marriage in the context of
the intimate relationship. We are withholding that from
them, hurting them. And we are doing no good. If we
had a reason, a really good reason for inflicting all of
that harm that might be another matter. But there is no
reason that I heard. 

Preserving the institution of married, we
improved the institution of marriage by allowing
interracial couples to get married. We allow women to
be equal partners the marriage. We don't put artificial
barriers based on race. And we will be more American
according to Mr. Blank {HERPB} when we eliminate this
stigma.
There are 14 Supreme Court decisions that talk
about the right to marriage there is the Romeer case and
the {HRAURPBS} versus Texas case and the testimony of
all these expert witnesses and the testimony of the
plaintiffs. That err recollects an insurmountable
barrier to the proponents of this position. It will not
hurt Californians. It will benefit California. But as
long as it {STK-BT} hurt California to get rid of
harmful stigma about their constitution that's labelling
people into cases. Thank you, Your Honor.
 

NY cop busted in teen gay sex/drug ring....

izz: Retired police officer Fredrick J. Baunee of Camillus, NY., is accused of running a drug ring and touching the 15 yr old boys who allegedly sold it for him inappropriately while they were sleeping at his house. Allegedly he would supply them with alcohol. Probably to get them to pass out so he can be a dirty old bastard. He faces 46 counts in connection with drug dealing. Holeee...

Gen. John Sheehan is despicable...

izz:As i often wonder what goes through the minds of people who say things such as what you are about to read, I want to laugh, scream and then, well, the rest is better left unsaid. By reading his statement you can clearly see that Sheehan is motivated by a complete deep rooted dislike for gays. It's quite obvious. Either because he is a self loathing closeted gay himself or he is an ignorant conservative. Either way i don't much care. However he is just plain stupid. As far as Tony Perkins is concerned, well he is just a  complete asshole...

Here is their joint statement:

“Men and women should be allowed to serve in the military only if their character and conduct can help the U.S. armed forces achieve its mission. In multiple studies over the past 16 years, the addition of open homosexuality into the close quarters and tightly knit units of our military was predicted to add tension, not build unit cohesion.
“Unit cohesion” is essential to the success of the U.S. military. Respect for and loyalty and commitment to one another, to the point of a willingness to die for your buddy, is the single greatest imperative in any military force.
Yet homosexuality carries with it profound behavioral implications. Sexual attraction among members of the same sex — living, exercising, fighting and training alongside one another in the closest of quarters — could devastate morale, foster heightened interpersonal tension and lead to division among those who, more than virtually any other group in society, need to act as one.”
According to data released last year by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, gay and bisexual men are 50 times more likely to have HIV than heterosexual men.
This would be devastating for military resources already stretched thin, and it has pronounced implications for battlefield blood transfusions.
This proposal is not about bigotry. Race is a superficial and benign element of one’s humanness, while homosexuality is a matter of behavior.
Homosexuality is not about civil rights but conduct detrimental to the discipline, trust and combat readiness of what has been — and still is — the world’s finest military.
If we want to keep it that way, we should not permit openly practicing homosexuals to serve in the U.S. military.

Prop 8 closing arguments are underway.....

izz: Here we go, the closing arguments are underway in the Prop 8 trial...The judge denied this morning a request by the attorneys for the proponents for the the ban on same sex marriage to keep out from evidence certain emails that show just how involved Catholic and Mormon officials were in getting the ban passed. Dirty scumbags....sorry, couldn't help myself.. :)

No party for Van der Sloot in prison....

izz: I just read this article about the prison most likely Van der Sloot will be doing his time, holy shit. He better grease up...If he even makes it.  Well i can't say i feel bad for him, he killed one girl and another has been missing for 5 years because of him, so enjoy your time....

"The prisoners run the prison, and the guards are an afterthought." "Recently, a new warden took over. He was murdered the first day on the job. So this is what we're dealing with. If they got to the warden the first day, can you imagine what could happen to van der Sloot? It's insane."

Read the article here, that would be my biggest nightmare being locked up with all those crazies...what am i talking about, i live in LA...

Chris Klein gets DUI

izz: Klein was arrested for DUI in Sherman Oaks on the Ventura Highway after failing a sobriety test. He blew a 2.0, that is just about 3 times the legal limit in CA. Shit ballz, this is his second dui in 6 years. Not good.

Kathy Griffin my life on the D list was great last night!

izz: Did you watch? D list was hilarious last night. Miz Kathy never disappoints. Liza is crazy as a loon...LOLS.  If you did not see it catch it on the repeats, you must!

Anti Gay preacher marries Limbaugh and Elton still performed...

izz:It's bad enough that Elton back handed the gay community across the face by performing for douchebag Rush Limbaugh's wedding. the preacher who performed Limbaugh's 4th wedding is anti-gay preacher bigot Ken Hutcherson. You can read about him here but below is a little example of what this douchebag has said and done to the gays:

"It has been said loudly and proudly that gay marriage is a civil rights issue. If that's the case, then gays would be the new African Americans. I'm here to tell you now, and hopefully for the last time, that the gay community is not the new African-American community." Hutcherson has been reported as saying that he is offended by those that say same-sex marriage is a civil rights issue and instead is “a moral and sexual preference issue.”


On April 25, 2008 Hutcherson protested at a school hosting the National Day of Silence. He planned on organizing, and took an ad out in a local paper calling for, 1,000 people to protest Mount Si High School, the school his daughter attended, in Snoqualmie, Washington. The National Day of Silence brings attention to anti-LGBT (LesbianGayBisexual,Transgender) name-calling, bullying and harassment in schools.


Hutcherson is not just anti- gay marriage, he is anti-gay period. The National Day of Silence at his daughters school had nothing to do with gay marriage. Ken Hutcherson is probably an on the down low black man preaching his anti-gay bullshit, that is usually their m.o.  (and i mean m.o. as in homo...:)


 Nice work Elton even more despicable of you.. Hope you are proud now? Was it worth the 1 million?

Gay Dads rule!

izz: A recent study published in the latest issue in the Journal of GLBT Family Studies, showed that gay fathers, via surrogacy,  cut back on their work to care for the kiddies more then straight men did. Which kinda makes sense seeing that they are actively seeking to have children and are preparing for it. Not that straight Dads don't but i think a lot of times getting married and kids is just part of the process of life, it's easier for straight men to just get a wife and have kids. The study also showed another diff was that gay men's extended family relationships and self-esteem improved by a lot when having children.

I give them creds, i do not think i could do it. I' m a great gay uncle but father? I know my limitations. Parenting is the hardest job on earth and you have to be in it to win it...

Boy Scouts and Philly go at it...

izz: Jury selection is underway in the case of  city of Philadelphia vs. the Boy Scouts.  Here's the deets: The Boy Scouts has a national (hate) policy banning gays and they have been leaching off a city owned building rent free for years. The city has a non-discrimination laws, so Mayor Michael Nutter (love the name) says they BS (love that too) must loose their anti-gay ways, get out or pay up and fair rent value is about $200,000 a year. Shit maybe the scouts better get in on the cookie action.  Boy Scouts are claiming their first amendment rights are being violated.

Here is the shameful part, how many of these scouts are young gay kids and they have a an anti-gay policy like is in place?...they should be ashamed for themselves...

Germany not "gay marriage" friendly....

izz:A gay couple who married in Canada in 2006 was been denied marriage recognition by a Berlin court because Germany only defines marriage between a man and a woman. That blows...Germany only allows gay people to have civil partnerships. However, all rights and obligations of marriage are extended to civil partnerships....Andreas Boettcher and his partner have been together 17 years . Having two separate categories and not allowing a certain group of people to enter into one is still bigotry and in a country that saw first hand the evils of discrimination, I am surprised there is any form of it left there.

Perez, WTF?

izz:Perez Hilton is under fire for posting a of Miley Cyrus getting out of a car with no underwear on. Apparently some are saying the photo was photoshoped. Either way, anyone with half a brain knows that posting a nude photo of anybody under the age of 18 is against the law, it's child pornography and Perez is not stupid, so what gives? When it comes to adults, nude photos are free reign, but when it comes to minors, come on.

Sharon Osborne blasts anti gay protester...

izz:Sharon and Kelly Osborne were the grand marshal's in the West Hollywood gay pride parade yesterday. Apparently some protesters came up to their float and spewed some anti gay stuff. Sharon shot back telling them "You should be ashamed of yourselves" over the her loud speaker. Kelly then took to the mic and said "my god loves gays" and had the crowd chant "god loves gays" drowning out the protesters...LOLS...I was at the parade but not at this location. Let me just give a frame of reference. Gay pride brings in over 400,000, people that day to that there is about 10 protesters if that...so these people are such an insignificant joke....

Hick ass marines arrested for gay bashing...



I just read this over at joemygod.  Keil Joseph Cronauer, 22, and Christopher Charles Stanzel, 23 were arrested for beating up  Kieran Daly 26 because they thought he was winking at them. Daly claims he was not and tried to explain that to them but they did not believe him and instead one of the marines told him that he served in Iraq and deserved respect then they beat him, leaving him unconscious and suffering 2 seizures. Cops caught the two inbreds running away from the scene, their story is that they were being harassed by Daly. However witness say otherwise.


oh where do i begin? First off running away from the scene, if they were truly being harassed, why would they need to run? They have the right to defend themselves don't they? 


Look at their booking photos, notice their height's, and look at their broadness, these are big baboons against one guy, are you kidding me?


"they deserve respect" This is a funny one, they believe they deserve respect for serving in Iraq when they don't even have respect for human life. They could have killed this guy just because they thought he winked at them? They don't deserve respect and they certainly do not deserve to be serving in the  marines because they are an embarrassment to the military.


Well they will certainly get their fair share of winks in prison now, they may want to start putting their assholes through basic training...
