Prop 8 Has Been Overturned!

In: Politics & Issues, Totally GAY!, Tyrell

Hip hip horray for the gays in California. This is unbelievable news! Yesterday, a federal judge ruled “that a voter initiative banning same-sex marriage in California violated the Constitution’s equal protection and due process rights clauses.” It took five months, but finally the 9th Circuit District Court Judge Vaughn Walker gave a 136-page decision in the case and firmly rejected Proposition 8, which was passed by voters in November 2008 reports the Huffington Post.

“Although Proposition 8 fails to possess even a rational basis, the evidence presented at trial shows that gays and lesbians are the type of minority strict scrutiny was designed to protect,” Walker ruled. “Proposition 8 places the force of law behind stigmas against gays and lesbians, including: gays and lesbians do not have intimate relationships similar to heterosexual couples; gays and lesbians are not as good as heterosexuals; and gay and lesbian relationships do not deserve the full recognition of society.”

This is an unbelievable step forward and true reason to celebrate. This is the first judgement to be offered by a federal court with respect to laws banning gay marriage at the state level. Also, it promises to have massive reverberations across the political and judicial landscape not unlike New York’s decision to honor gay marriages earlier this year.

MTV vs. Vevo

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

Uh oh! Vevo has pulled all of their online music videos, which include artists like Lady Gaga & Justin Bieber, off of MTV.com after they have failed to reach an agreement. As you may or may not know, Vevo (the higher end version of YouTube for music videos) supplies licensed music videos from thousands of artists to sites across the Internet and also has a video player that it embeds on third-party sites. Previously, MTV did the ad sales and shared the proceeds with Universal (which owns Vevo). Now, Vevo wants to sell the ads and share the ad revenue with MTV, but MTV is not agreeing to this.

A Universal spokesman said:

“[MTV] has been unwilling to negotiate a fair syndication deal with Vevo to carry our artists’ videos and consequently our videos will not be shown on their online properties.”

MTV responded:

“During our recent discussions with Vevo we were unable to reach a fair and equitable agreement for rights to stream UMG artists’ music video content. As a result, UMG has elected to pull their music videos from our Web sites.”

Play nice kids!

Homorazzi Does Vancouver Pride 2010

In: Behind The Cast, Patrick, Videos

Last weekend, Vancouver celebrated Gay Pride 2010 with a plethora of activities to take advantage of. Street parties, circuit parties, club nights, house parties, and of course the annual Vancouver Pride Parade. Homorazzi was there covering it all, although not all of us because of where we live (Topher lives in Amsterdam, Kevin lives in Toronto) or where we were traveling (Adam on a Baltic Cruise and Redd in Barcelona). Alex made a surprise visit for the weekend, staying with Dan and here for all of the weekend festivities. Tommy of course was busy putting on some of the biggest events of the weekend with the biggest talent for Rapture 2010, Nic worked his final weekend at The Odyssey Nightclub, and the rest of us (Donovan, Brian, Jonny, Rich, Stephen and our other friends went from event to event, taking in as much as we could.

Some of the events included Homorazzi’s Pride Weekend Kick-Off Patio Party (sponsored by Piss & Vinegar, Expose, & Lazzybum), the street party at the Opus Hotel, The Telus Davie Street Party, Rapture 2010, Masc‘s 3 Year Anniversary, T-Dance, the Heat Wave Pool Party, a few house parties, and of course the annual Pride Parade. All this and my parents were visiting this weekend, so I spent my first pride with them and first pride with my boyfriend! Although I wasn’t able to make it to all the house parties that some of the other cast members were at, my BF and I did make it to Tommy’s late night events to cover the performances, hung out with Jessica & Hunter, and also covered the parade, watching the event for the first time ever with my parents! They loved it!

Giver or Receiver? Pitcher or Catcher?

In: Behind The Cast, Redd

Many heterosexual people still think that in gay relationships one person assumes the male or female role. From my experience, I started off being the pitcher since society basically tells us that the hoo hoo dilly goes in the cha cha. The thought of something up my bum was just too scary and foreign to me. As I grew older, I started to wonder what it was like to be on the other end: how it felt, if if felt good, was it painful or pleasurable?

So, my role gradually evolved- although not drastically- and have found that giving and receiving have their pros and cons and really depends on the mood and chemistry between the people involved. Besides, why limit yourself to one when you can be greedy and have both?

In: Donovan, TV Shows

“Never swim alone” and “safety in numbers” is what people recommend. That’s what the washed-up babes of Baywatch are doing. “Baywatch” was the ultimate in 90s guilty pleasure jiggle TV and everyone loved it. Traci Bingham (Jordan), Nicole Eggert (Summer), Donna D’Errico (Donna) and Gena Lee Nolin (Neely) are teaming up for an upcoming reality series titled “Back To The Bay“.

The docu-drama-comedy will follow the four women as they live together in a beach house while showing their personal and professional exploits- hopefully in slow motion. Let’s take a closer look at the lucky ladies involved in this project.

Kesha “Tik Toks” A Watch Deal

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Donovan, Music

Pop singer Ke$ha is the latest musician to lend her name for a product endorsement. It’s only natural and a matter of time before the “Tik Tok” singer, signed on with a watch company. The good folks at Casio’s Timepiece division thought so too and courted Ke$ha to become their newest watch designer and brand ambassador for their Casio Baby-G watches.

The Baby-G brand was developed as the woman’s counterpart to the brand’s highly-popular G-Shock brand. Most of their watches are moderately priced, for the perfect addition of color to any stylish outfit. The blond pop sensation will design two unique styles for Baby-G watches. The first model isn’t expected to hit stores until Summer 2011. Personally, I think they should fast-track them for the upcoming holiday season. There’s no guarantee Ke$ha’s popularity will be as high next year.

Here’s what the budding designer stated at Casio’s “Shock The World” event earlier in the week:

“I think the Baby-G brand is amazing it’s stylish, innovative, durable and affordable. The bright colors and metallic finishes really compliment my moods and personality,” said Ke$ha. “I have some fun ideas for my watches and I am so thrilled that I am the first worldwide female artist to be given the opportunity to design my very own Baby-G!”

I am sure by now you have heard this term a few times and may even be getting fed up with how much exposure it is receiving and what does it mean anyway? In simpler terms: law of attraction means: likes, attract likes.

Behavior breeds behavior, and while this sounds like a simple concept, this topic goes beyond that, and helps you learn how receive and believe you can change your life to attract what you want. It doesn’t have to be a dream!

For example: If you are unhappy in your current job, it may be time to seriously consider leaving it. Your quality of life is more important than staying somewhere that you have outgrown and are only there because it is easy and safe.

Pursuing your passion should become your focus so that you don’t waste anymore time in making that goal a reality. Don’t look at it as a dream; actually visualize your new path. It is easier to achieve something when you can see it clearly.
