• Brazil's first gay school opens its doors in March, funded and approved by São Paulo's government. Made in Brazil: "The idea is to provide a safe place for homosexual teenagers to express themselves, while also learning and promoting gay culture." Lovely.

• Israel's top gay web site
celebrates 10th birthday.

Being gay in China. Three different stories from gay Chinese men.

• Rob Smith, gay Iraq war veteran: Military Leader Memo: Your Gay Soldiers are No Longer Worthless. "Gay veterans aren't worthless. I'm not worthless. The blood I shed was the same as every other soldier's, the tears I cried were the same, the bullets that I dodged the same; the life that I risked is the same. I'm not worthless or perverted or sick, and neither is any other gay person in this world, veteran or not. I was a gay soldier."

• Still, every cloud has a silver lining: the upside of Don't Ask, Don't Tell...

• There's no such thing as monogamy! All gay couples
are sluts and they're totally open about it. Apparently... Right, Jovonnie and Citybwoy - a very open couple?

• Jeremy Hooper
at Good As You ain't thrilled about it: "It's astounding that anyone, especially a progressive from New York City's media world, would still have such an uninformed opinion about gay relationships as a whole."

• Dan Savage
disagrees with Jeremy: "Gay male couples generally don't view monogamy as the defining characteristic of a loving, committed relationship."

• Gay glam scam!

• Oh, nice. Hate monger Buju Banton is to be honoured by the Grammys. But we're
not taking it laying down (left)...

• And whilst Buju's locked up on drugs charges, quite probably taking it laying down (chuckle), another anti-gay fruitcake, Capleton, is touring California next month. He's named in the Dancehall Dossier alongside such luminaries as Bounty Killer and the aforementioned jail bitch. Capleton is scheduled to appear 15th February at the "Tribute to the Legends" festival in San Diego, the Downtown Brewing Company in San Luis Obispo on 17th February, the "Ragga Muffins 2010" festival at the Fox Theater in Oakland on 20th February, and at the same event in Long Beach on 21st February. Thanks to Sam Kestu for this information!

• Sold out: American network
lies about available advertising spots; denies gay ad airtime.

Are Manhunt's ads so ambiguous that straight women think they should sign on? Yes, actually.

More pro-LGBT laws passed in 2009 than in '07 and '08 combined.

• Lambda Legal
warns Atlanta Falcons fullback Ovie Mughelli: It is not defamatory to call someone gay. Author Taylor Siluwé writes: "Too many men believe being called 'gay' is like being spat on. And its high time we changed that idiotic perception."

• NFL player Eric Green accused of
forcibly sodomising transgender woman.

This is more like it. As one wag puts it, "The look....of in.....your eyes ......"

• Here's another pregnant transgrender man for the mainstream media to
parade as a Victorian freak show. The Pregnant Man! No you f**king twats, it's a pregant transgender man. But that's not such a good headline, is it?

Gay laws are threat to free speech.

Eric Arvin said...

That's one brave kitty!

Eduardo Guize said...

What I found the funniest in here was the Manhunt confusion. Come on, ladies!

When are you applying to that Brazilian school as an English teacher? Imagine the oral tests... No, not that kind of oral tests, you mind in the gutter!

"If you could turn off all the noise and listen to yourself" (Qaadir/Timaya) so true!

Garçon Stupide said...

Eduardo... hehe... What is it about Brazil that immediately conjures up 3 letters, the first one being S...

It's a lovely idea though. Just imagine how different life would be for all the gay youth around the world if they had a positive, supportive school life like this?

.::.~*Dovie*Lee*~.::. said...

i need to book my flight to brazil

Eduardo Guize said...

Hmm... you mean SUN? (biting my thumb to look coy, like Carmen Sternwood in The Big Sleep).

It's a lovely idea, indeed, although the world will be even better when they don't need to be educated apart.

Garçon Stupide said...

Er... yeah. I mean... sun. Ahem.

"The world will be even better when they don't need to be educated apart..."

That will never happen.

Eduardo Guize said...

Why not? Timaya is on our side.

Garçon Stupide said...

LOL... Yeah, he could talk anyone into anything.


Yet another reason for me NOT to visit Jamaica...

I am REALLY enjoying Spartacus...

Can I get that cat to guard my home?

Thanks for doing this on a weekly bases...

Anonymous said...

Who said that isn't a such thing as a gay couple? That is stupid. I am going on 6 damn years, couple these nuts!

That damn JOVONNIE! ANd Citiboi looks like Gucci Mane, not a good thing....

J. Clarence said...

That Ugandan preacher is committed. Fisting porn is easy to find. But to find scat & fisting porn, that takes some time with the google and you've probably got to know some people. Still, it hardly says anything about gay people as neither scat or fisting is gay specific. Two Girls One Cup, anyone?

Great list always!

Donn M. said...

I CANT for the LIFE OF ME understand how can ANYONE be in a OPEN relationship, GAY or STR8.

Garçon Stupide said...

TG-K - that cat ain't messing!

Reggie - why damn Jovonnie? And Citibwoi is so cute'n'sexi!!

J.Clarence - that's crossed everyone's minds! More to the point, could the language he used to describe the acts be any more childish and asinine? Pathetic.

Donn M - I agree, to an extent. Can't see hoe it would be good for the heart, mind or soul!

Joseph said...

Dear Mr. Garcon,

Basketball Stars aren't sexy? Really?

Allen Iverson (probably Queer)
Dwayne Wade (probably Queer)
Ben Wallace
Amare Stoudamire
Kobe Bryant
Michael Jordan (back in the day)
Chris Webber
Ron Artest (who you posted)
Shaq (probably Queer)
Chris Paul
Corey Maggette
Dwight Howard
Kevin Garnett (thank Jesus!)
Gilbert Arenas (i mean please!)
& many many more

Divinely tall and divinely endowed (some of them), and divinely black

Garcon, have you watched college or NBA basketball?

Good Lord! What are you seeing? Do we share the same Reality?

And Greg Ogden's no pretty boy, but he does have this ruffneck phoine thing going on that i'd be a fool to pass up

Joseph said...

for basketball beauties...

Garçon Stupide said...

Well Joseph... clearly this is a subject you have some passion for!

There's no denying that some of the names you mentioned are good looking dudes. I guess for me it's just that long and lanky just don't cut it. Plus basketball players just seem a bit shapeless - they lack the power and definition of track stars and the bulky beefiness of football players.

In saying that, I probably wouldn't kick any of them out of bed. And thanks for the linkds to those sites, they look great!

Donn M. said...

Shame on u Garçon, u have gone and made dude pop a blood vessel,lol. He's right tho, but those rookies that have been coming in recently would blow ALLL of those guys out the water.
