Timor is a member of Parent’s of Russia – an anti-gay org in St. Petersburg.

There are little words we can muster to convey the horror we experienced watching Liz MacKean narrate Hunted – a documentary, which aired this past week just prior to the start of the Sochi Winter Olympics, about homophobia in present day Russia.  WARNING:  The video is violent and graphic.

Vitaly Milonov: From Russia With No Love

Vitaly Milonov

Vitaly Milonov

There is something deeply hurtful going on in Russia present day.  Their anti-gay propaganda laws are, by far, the most extreme homophobia being exercised by a supposed developed country.

And for those who believe that it only affects the locals – which in and of itself is an atrocity – it doesn’t.  It applies to foreigners as well.

Doubt this?  Google the recent arrest of Dutch tourist/protesters.

And with the 2014 Olympics slated to take place in – wait for it – Russia, we are left with mouth gaping open that anyone – Olympian, coach or sponsors – would commit their support to an ass-backward country fueling such hateful practices.

Well lo and behold, their is a petition presently making the rounds looking to ban Elena Mizulina and Vitaly Milonov from acquiring visas required to enter the USA.  And as we have already put down our John Hancock, we thought to share the petition with y’all in the hopes of helping the petition reach its 100k required number to go before John Kerry.

Help send a message to these two  spiteful individual, as well as Putin himself, that says ‘it’s not OK to exercise such blatant homophobia!’

Gay Pride Subway Hate Crime

Two unidentified Queens bound F train subway riders commit gay hate crime and attack woman recording their attack

Two unidentified Queens bound F train subway riders commit gay hate crime and attack woman recording their attack

Here is the face of bigotry – on gay pride no less!  Two men on a Queens-bound F train were recorded making homophobic slurs at a group of gay youths after they boarded the train.  A concerned rider became concerned and documented the altercation – at the expense of her own safety.  When the two homophobes realized they were being recorded by the female bystander one of them is seen walking towards her and lunging at her in attempt to take her phone to destroy the evidence.  Although the ER breaks were pulled the duo managed to get away at the Roosevelt Ave stop.

The identification of the two bigoted cowards is unknown.

If you recognize either of these two lovely individuals call the police and report their small dick asses.

Paris Hilton: Anti-Gay Statements by Most Used Piece of Equipment

Paris Hilton Busted for Cocaine Possession in Las Vegas, Nevada

Celeb-utard Paris Hilton loves getting attention.  But this time she has gone the most extreme route to get herself some.  The heiress with the most used piece of pussy on two coasts was recorded by a NYC cabbie making anti-gay slurs after being shown a gay website.  Ain’t that some shit?

For real y’all.

Clearly, rising to national attention after a “leaked” One Night in Paris sex tape – one with the poorest performance of all time – with a porn entrepreneur doesn’t tarnish her reputation, in her eyes.   Say nothing of her multiple arrests.

NO!

To Hilton, she is still the embodiment of class.

It makes little difference to her that she’s been passed around more than a donation plate at a Sunday church group.

“Gay guys are the horniest people in the world … they’re disgusting,” Hilton is reported to have responded after being shown the Grindr app while riding in the back of a cab with an unidentified friend.  Wow!  This from a woman who has given out more rides than Six Flags.

“Dude, most of them probably have AIDS,” she goes on to add.

Vlada Lounge: An Alternative to Rm Fifty 5

Vlada DJ and His Glam Girl Hold Court at Vlada Bar

As a member of the “alternative” clan in NYC one likes to think everything is at hand.  We hardly ever consider the thought that there may be destinations closed off to our patronage.  Those types of things don’t happen in Gotham.

Then you step out gagging for a cocktail after a night at the ballet and you find yourself confronted by the likes of something that might itself not gain entry to Whole Foods – simply based on their general form – and are made to endure their schpiel on why you cannot patronize their establishment.

Dream Hotel's Rm Fifty 5 Refuses Entry to Gay Trio

Friday night, three gay men – yes, I am one of them – were refused entry to the Dream Hotel’s lobby bar – Rm. Fifty 5, in midtown, for being “alternative.” 

It minded little that the couple preceeding us looked like they had come straight out of the back woods of Alabama wearing their JC Penny best.  We were three guys and if allowed in, we would off-set the ratio to the businesses clientele – so we were told. 

“Will you have any girls joining your party,” the short chubby doorman in a bad grey suit asked?  This was a puzzling inquiry and I initially thought it a joke.

‘Why would three gay men be needing to have women join them after a night at the ballet,’ I asked.  ‘We are self contained,’ I added with a smile.

“We can’t let you in,” replied chubby-poo.  Wow!

So we did what should’ve been done in the first place, we re-routed over to Vlada Lounge a few short blocks away for quick cocktails and snappy tunes at the hands of the above pictured DJ and his glam girl and thanked the heavens for having a spot to go to and finally having the sense to redirect.  (I don’t know what the hell we were thinking in the first place!)

But the shock of the night was still felt as a hard reality that even in the center of Metropolis bias acts can occur!  One is never safe.

Ricky Martin Denounces Anti-Gay Attack

Ricky Martin Addresses Recent Anti-Gay Murder in Puerto Rico

I never thought I would see the day when I would be giving kudos to Ricky Martin for officially addressing a gay topic.  Sure he is a hot piece of ass (papi looks good in Speedo!) and has had some great sounds (I still bust a move to “She Bangs” & “La Vida Loca,”) during a span of a long ass career, but the whole ‘is he or isn’t he’ rubs me the wrong way. 

This is not because I expect Martin to take a stance and become a gay advocate from a makeshift Miami pulpit but because he hasn’t had the cojones to look into the camera and say “who I fuck is none of your goddamn business unless you want to suck my uncut cock!” 

Of course he doesn’t have to use my words – exactly…  but along those lines… 

 And then he goes and releases a statement to the Puerto Rican newspaper El Nuevo Dia addressing the recent heinous murder of Jorge Steven Lopez Mercado.  In case you haven’t heard of the story, google it!  

 ”The murders of James Byrd, Matthew Shepard, Jorge Steven Lopez, Marcelo Lucero, Luis Ramirez and countless others who were victims of violent ‘hate crimes’ should be completely unacceptable to every human being; because we’re all human beings. It’s up to us to change the paradigm,” Martin writes. 

He gets deeper with “I hear the word ‘tolerance’ thrown around in the media when it comes to cases like the ones I mentioned above. One of the meanings of tolerance is ‘the capacity to endure pain or hardship.’ Another is ‘the act of allowing something.’ To me, those don’t seem to encompass acceptance, by any definition. So how about this? Instead of saying ‘we need to tolerate diversity’ why not say, ‘we need to accept diversity.’”

I especially love the tolerance vs acceptance portion!  That breaks it down in simple terms.  Fucking-A. 

I don’t know whether this is a result of his being a new daddy to twins – they say having kids makes you see things differently, but whatever the cause it is some Act Up sentiment right there!  Bravo.

Mickey Rourke: Foot in Mouth Illness

Here is Oscar nominee (for a film I’ve yet to see) Mickey Rourke, pictured at the LA Italia Festival last year, demonstrating another case of foot-in-mouth disease while on TMZ‘s cameras.
I fondly recall the times we spent in the balcony VIP Room in Times Square – circa the Tupac Shakur years. Mickey would be keeping company with a clearly visible under-age model (even in club lighting) on one arm and some coke in the other – as Tupac smoked a blunt not to far away. The champagne flowed, as if from a fountain, and us one day ending up with Mickey’s left hand around my throat, back up against a railing and his right arm grabbing my left hand and placing it in his leather pants!
This action was accompanied by a statement along the lines of “I know you’d like me to take you in the bathroom and give you this right now, wouldn’t you?” ‘Yes! Let’s go.’ was my response. Brother man was packing some big rock hard shit and I knew he had some good ass coke as well! Stuff of dreams…
Now, does this constitute homophobic? Well, I reckon it depends on what side of the velvet rope you were on – I got free Cristal and a ski trip out of it, (although not in the bathroom,) so y’all know where my loyalty lied…

But I reckon this does little for poor Mickey right now. Brother can’t ever just keep his fucking mouth shut! I swear it. Motherfucker, just keep it light and gay.

Prop 8: The Musical

Folks are still up-in-arms over the Prop 8 issue! And rightfully so… It has some briefs so tight it could cause failures to launch in a many a bedroom.

And with that sentiment, a bunch of celebs have rallied to bring forth “Prop 8: The Musical” – with Jack Black as Jesus! Rich… Also appearing in the short vid are Doogie Howser’s Neil Patrick Harris, John C. Reilly, Margaret Cho along with a bunch of other recognizable faces. Cute, in theory – It is such a loaded and sensitive issue after all.

Being a Mo myself, I wanted to simply adore this musical where art speaks out on the bigoted fueled injustice. But I find that it lacks a certain gay trait. They should have picked up that pink fone and tapped into the genius the folks over at Broadway Cares have que’d in the wings, waiting for a curtain to go up! Cuz I swear their stage productions – like Gypsy of The Year - bring the G to gay, The F to funny and the U to universal appeal!

Having said all that, it is a valiant attempt and a must see:

Mexican Non Grata

WOW… This is rich!

Long rumored Mexican homo – Eduardo Verastequi (bare with me while I bring you to his attention,) of J.Lo “Ain’t It Funny” music video and the mega-flop “Chasing Papi” fame has recorded a series of public service announcements urging Latinos to vote Yes on Proposition 8 – currently up for vote in California.

The same Prop 8 that would change the California Constitution to eliminate rights of same-sex couples to marry. The very amendment that folks like Steven Spielberg, Brad Pitt and Ellen Degeneres (amongst many others,) have donated their own $ in attempts of beating and is supported by Barack Obama and Arnold Schwarzeneger.

In his segments Verastegui urges a Yes vote on the grounds that “a marriage between a man and a woman is the foundation of society. Helping in that families remain united, and gives children the love of a mother and father.” He also goes on to state that “Prop 8 protects marriage as well as families and children, ” while proclaiming that it “does not take any rights away from anyone but simply reestablishes, legally, the original definition of marriage to what it has always been: a sacred union between a man and a woman.”

As a Latin man myself, I am ashamed and enraged! Doubly so given that, not only is this a classic example of the oppressed trying to become the oppressor but, this under-cover border crosser has been rumored to have sucked more dick then Jenna Jameson in his travels towards becoming a celebrity.

Someone needs to call immigration on his dumb ass… And regardless of where you live voice your support of equality by signing up on the Vote No on Prop 8 website.
