Эфир музыкальных каналов взорвал клип Юлии Ласкер на сингл CITY LIFE, в главной роли которого снялся телеведущий Виктор Лобинцов. И все бы ничего, но «тема» в клипе не подверглась цензуре телебоссов. Мне кажется, до этого на российских музыкальных каналах не осмеливались выдавать в эфир ролики о вот такой явной мужской любви. За два дня жизни ролика в Youtube количество просмотров достигло 2.500!

London Hate Crime Vigil on Oct 30th
A candlelight vigil will take place in London's Trafalgar Square on October 30th to honor Ian Baynham a gay man who was murdered. Baynham, 62 was walking with a friend when he was attacked.
Homophobic hate crimes have been on the rise in London, just a few days after this attack a lesbian couple was attacked by a group of men. The complaints by the gay community is that little is being done to prevent homophobic hate crimes, police response is inadequate, and that the public at large needs to be made aware of whats going on.
Candlelight vigil and moment of silence:

`ello guys I am visiting Chester from California.
I was born in England but I grew up is the San Francisco Bay Area. I am 23/F/Gay and just lookin' for some new friends in the area. I come over once or twice a year and if we hit it off maybe we could chill in Cal if you want to visit.
I was wondering if anyone would want to meet up have a drink of show me round especially any gay clubs. I am willing to meet you even hop on a train too if I need to. I love to hangout in Liverpool if there are any scousers out there. Even if you don't want to meet could you point me in the direction of good gay clubs in the north west area....
Thanks Mates Current Mood: grateful

Michael Musto: "Are Bisexuals Real?"
Michael Musto columnist for the Village Voice has come out with a bi-phobic, anti-scientific column titled Ever Meet a Real Bisexual?
questioning the legitimacy of bisexuality.
"Everyone always says they're bisexual, blabbing on and on about how "sexuality is fluid, and I don't really like labels"--but usually I find these are just gay men who are afraid to come out. I know there are real bisexuals out there--mainly because I've heard that there are--and I do think it's a lovely idea to actually crave sex with people regardless of gender. I'm just wondering how real a phenomenon this is, as opposed to a smoke-and-mirrors coverup designed to keep antsy gays in the closet.
Most of the guys I know who say they're bisexual end up doing Bette Davis impersonations after a few drinks, and when you invite them to an all-girl bar, they get excited, thinking you mean Splash. But do you know anyone who REALLY is equally attracted to both men and women and effortlessly glides between those two dating pools without a second's thought or self-consciousness? If so, do you ever suspect they're full of shit?"
Suggesting bisexuality is a phenomenon, or that bisexual men are closeted liars is offensive and outright wrong!Contact Michael Musto
and tell him bi-phobia has no place in the Village Voice.

Diversity Lesson 101: LGBT/Queer Little People
Little People like LGBT people are considered "freaks of nature", they get stares and people misunderstand them. In looking for resources for Little LGBT People, I found virtually nothing. I decided, to make an entry to educate people about little people as well as provide as much info as I can for LGBT Little People. It is my sincere hope that LGBT Little People can find solace, comfort and community and that they can begin to network and build a foundation and support system for their own sub-section of the community.
For more info and resources on LGBT Little People, check out:http://queersunited.blogspot.com/2008/12/diversity-lesson-101-lgbtqueer-little.html

Queer Liberationist or Gay Assimilationist?
There are two opposing political viewpoints when it comes to advocacy and than of course there are a variety of more moderate middleground opinions that fall in between the Queer Liberationists and Gay Assimilationist camps.
Gay Assimilationists - This ideology is to make gay/lesbian people seem like average, normal everyday citizens in the eyes of the general public. They want to make the case that gay families deserve equal rights and recognition and they want what everyone else wants: a house with a white picket fence and 2.5 kids. Some Gay Assimilationists are not inclusive of Bisexuals or Transgender people because they feel these groups hurt the gay rights movement. This is not the case for all Assimilationists and many seek to include all LGBT people and create a sense of assimilation into the general society. Gay Assimilationists often seek to advance their agenda through corporate sponsorships and see getting big business and government on their side as a way to advance equality. The assimilationists strive to paint the LGBT community as being no different than the heterosexual world and just want to fit in. They want the rights to marriage, the rights to adoption, to serve freely and openly in the military. Part of achieving these means, Gay Assimilationists seek to tone down the sexual aspect of gay pride, they feel that sexuality is one component of gay relationships and seek to emphasize much more the loving, financial, community, and faith based aspects of LGBT relationships.
Queer Liberationists - This camp of political theory views gender and sexuality in non-conformist ways. They do not apologize for the differences of Queer individuals and do not seek to "fit in". They embrace the idea of "We're Here, We're Queer, Get Used to it!" and believe society must change to accept them rather than they change to mold into hetero-normative society. Queer Liberationists are often but not always concerned with Queer issues as they relate not only to LGBT people but also to capitalism, anti-militarism, sexism, racism and other aspects of social justice. They are less concerned with same-sex marriage, adoption, and don't ask don't tell. Many times but not always they are against the institution of marriage altogether, feel gays are liberated from the idea of raising kids, and are against gays serving in the military because they are anti-military to begin with. Queer Liberationists often disagree with the idea of corporate partnerships and having big business and government intervene in LGBT issues. Queer Liberationists do not seek to hide their sexuality and gender expression, they seek to embrace it and encourage what has conventionally been frowned upon as inappropriate.
These are two diametrically opposed political camps. Most people have various opinions that don't fall so heavily into one party or the other. Where do you lie and what are your thoughts?http://queersunited.blogspot.com/2008/05/open-forum-queer-liberationist-or-gay.html

Free Speech Where do We Draw the Line?
A few interesting and controversial headlines have popped up in the news and the gay blogosphere that raise some important questions. At what point is gay activism intruding upon free speech and freedom of expression rights? Freedom of speech and expression must be protected even for anti-gay forces, because if we don't have these basic freedoms it becomes a slippery slope and eventually we will not have the right to express our opinions.
I write this in light of some stories recently, such as a student who wore a t-shirt to school saying "Be Happy - Not Gay!"
at a diversity event, who got in trouble. The courts have since ruled she is entitled to wear the shirt.
What about Crystal Dixon's case
with the University of Toledo V.P. of Human Resources who outside the university wrote an opinion column denouncing homosexuality, claiming it is a choice. She has been fired under grounds that she mentioned she was a worker at the school and is now suing the school.
Finally there was the case at Smith College, where the College Republicans brought in Ryan Sorba who created a book called "The Born Gay Hoax" who spoke about bogus research regarding LGBT people. Students interrupted his anti-gay speech
by screaming "We're Here, We're Queer, get used to it" the student protesters overwhelmed the room forcing Mr. Sorba to leave the campus and cancel his speech.
Youtube clip of the Smith protest:
What do you think about GLBT activism and where do we draw the line to ensure free speech rights, or is it okay to intrude upon the free speech of others when they seek to intrude on our civil liberties and spread falsehoods about our community?http://queersunited.blogspot.com/2008/05/open-forum-free-speech-where-do-we-draw.html

"Voices Against 377" - Human Rights for Singapore!
‘Voices Against 377 is a coalition of Non Governmental Organisations (NGO) and progressive groups based in Delhi. It is a point of intersection and dialogue between various social movements that these groups represent, where a united voice is being articulated against Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code which criminalizes private consensual sexual acts deemed to be against the order of nature.
Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code is cited below:
“377. Unnatural Offences.
Whoever voluntarily has carnal intercourse against the order of nature with any man, woman or animal, shall be punished with imprisonment for life, or with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to ten years, and shall also be liable to fine.”
The law penalizes certain sexual acts equally. For example oral sex, regardless of whether it is heterosexual or homosexual; even penile-masturbation of one person by another – is considered criminal. Although facially neutral, the law has effectively stigmatized and criminalized a section more than others, namely same-sex desiring people, including those who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT), hijra, kothi and other Queer people. The law has been used by the police to intimidate same sex desiring people and has been a source of serious human rights violations."
Take action on the issue sign the petition:http://queersunited.blogspot.com/2008/05/voices-against-377-equality-for.html

My boyfriend cheated on me with his straight ugly fat co worker..
Me-27 yrs old- Independent,very goal minded and like to accomplished ATTAINABLE goals
Ex- 27 yrs old-still live with parents, music laid back mentality (waiting to be discovered, and no back up future plans.
Relationship Status -4 years long term relationships
Officially Break Update: March 2008
Partial Break up- Oct 2008
Reconciled- Nov 2008
My ex bf recently confessed to me that he cheated on me last year.
I asked him who-what-when-why. He said 3 times before our partial break up and 7 more times within a break up period. It was his straight co worker that approached him after smoking pt. He was tempted and did it.
When we both got back together,things change, we dont make love as we used to be and its just different. I wouldnt think my xbf can do such a thing. In all honesty i thought ill be the one who will commit cheating especially with so many temptations in my end.
My point of view and correct me guys if im wrong..
1. It will prolly be ok if he did it inside the break period?
2. If he did it once its ok people make mistake, but knowing he did it 3 times? Did he even think about me on the 2nd and the 3rd?
3. Careless is a very big thing to me. You have to be responsibile in your actions and pay consequences for the outcome.
4. Before i said to my friends... "its not like im breaking up with him cuz he cheated on me? its more about growth.." But now that he cheated on me!! which prolly happen for a reason and something is telling me that its better off getting out of this relationship now and regret it later?
5. I already forgive him but i will not tolerate cheating.
6. He want to get back together but im sure it will just take another time before he can cheat on me again. Or maybe I will cheat on him ?
The weird thing is...
I know how its like to be approached by a str8 guy.. I used to have a str8 fb before i met him and kinda the same scenario happen..Of course on that time im single. In some ways i told him its ok..I understand.. I even told him that since you cheated on me.. if u want you can keep yours and i will go back and keep mine. but he said he cant do that.. I told him .. well you already cheated on me.. What bugs me is that he is so hypocrite and bad mouthing my other couples friends that play together.. If i have to choose.. I would rather play together than cheat to my partner.
Since i know its never gonna be the same again.. i decided to just completely get out of this relationship and move on..
DO you guys think I should give him a chance?
-- heartbroken cutie.
