Wentworth Miller of Prison Break fame came out as a gay man on Wednesday when he put his thoughts on paper and shipped it out to Russia. Excuse me?
That’s right! Wednesday, Miller wrote a letter to St. Petersburg International Film Festival, declining an invitation as a “guest of honour” because of his sexuality. The letter explained:
…as a gay man, I must decline.
I am deeply troubled by the current attitude toward and treatment of gay men and women by the Russian government. The situation is in no way acceptable, and I cannot in good conscience participate in a celebratory occasion hosted by a country where people like myself are being systematically denied their basic right to live and love openly.
Well, another pride season has come and gone, which means the hot boys of summer who seemed to have leaped from the bushes all tanned and buff to populate the streets will slither back into the undergrowth. You nursed your hangover at your desk all week and wished life could go on being a Speedo pool party forever. And all over the city, testicles will be filling back out and producing normal levels of sperm, at least until this time next year.
Yes, no pride season is complete without the perennial steroid rant, brought to you this time by somebody who seriously had no clue until like three weeks ago that literally everyone was on the juice.
It began when I made an offhand joke to someone I had recently started dating about how it would be nice to put on more muscle with minimal effort but no ball shrinkage, backne or looking like an aubergine.
He responded cagily about not judging other people’s choices.
“Are you defending steroid use to me?” I asked in disbelief.
Multiple cities celebrated Pride over the weekend including Toronto, Seattle, San Francisco, New York, Dublin, London, Minneapolis and Houston to name a few. Myself, I was in Seattle partaking in the festivities and definitely paying the price today. I caught myself a little cold. Too much drinking and not enough food or sleep.
After spending another weekend with a bunch of homos, it definitely feels like “Everyone is Gay” which brings me to this funny little track by Ian Axel & Chad Vaccarino aka A Great Big World. According to their YouTube bio, they play music in a joyous kind of way. I couldn’t agree with that description any more. Give their song a listen below. It’s a great way to start off your gay week.
The newest brain child of friend of Homorazzi’s Mark Kenneth Woods, known for the Deb and Sisi series, premiered on OutTV two weeks ago, with the second episode just airing this week. This latest mini series follows a group of delinquent characters all vying to win the title of spokesman for their hometown in a television competition testing their, *ahem*, “skills”.
Premiering to mixed opinions, the comedy series actually does something that I haven’t seen OutTV do before, and new blood and fresh ideas on that network are always welcome in my books. With more extras on the internet than there is actual television show, after every episode you can go online to, for instance, watch the audition videos after the first episode, or catch the blogs the characters have created in a, mostly, disastrous attempt to win that grand prize. Not only do you get an entertaining show, you also can delve into the internet side of the show and get to know the characters a little more in a non-live “After Dark” style thing.
If you’re reading this article, I’ve survived night 5.
Okay, let’s back up.
Breakfast this morning again was on the road. We left the comfort of the gorgeous Hotel Monaco Denver, packed up Bruce, tossed ourselves into trusty ol’ Beryl, and hit the interstate in our finest attire (it was a jogging pants day). Colorado turned into Nebraska today, and the scenery was. That’s all. The scenery just was. The weather has held out, it was actually very warm to tepid today, and we arrived in Omaha in nine and a half hours with a nice sheen, looking ripe as a plum in the sun.
Okay, let’s just back up a hot minute because I just said the word “Omaha”. The original plan everyone, was to hit Kansas City. The two cities have a similar population of around 400,000, and driving to Omaha shaves off over an hour from Denver, and over an hour to our next destination. So Nebraska it was. And Nebraska it is. And. Here…..we are…..
One of the most annoying things about laptops and iPads at the beach or in the sun is the glare you get, seeing only your reflection when you look at the screen. Although I’ve never tried one myself, the Kindle Paperwhite apparently does not have that issue.
In a new commercial titled “Perfect Day At The Beach,” a man and a woman are side by side in their recliners, both reading their e-books. The woman has no problem because she has a Kindle, but the guy struggles to see anything. They chat about it a bit and he decides to buy one online. To celebrate, they decide they should have a drink to celebrate and that’s where the gay twist comes in!
Such a cute commercial. Watch it below!
Have you ever been in one of those uncomfortable situations where someone is going off on a rant of some sort and no one knows what to do or how to deal with it. Well, the video you’re about to watch is one of those situations.
A homophobic preacher on a NYC subway train shouts and goes off on an anti-gay rant that has the train on edge, and more-so those passengers that are gay. That didn’t stop one gay man who stood up and shouted back at the man, standing up for gays and equality. The “preacher” continued, going so far as to liken gays to pedophiles and said, “…and if I wasn’t a Preacher, and I saw you around my children, I would have gone for my shotgun!”
Towards the end, the gay man gets a round of applause from the passengers on the train after he says, “I’m a man. And I’m a good man. And I’m a gay man. And Jesus Loves me. Jesus loves me.” Watch the video below.
Our Aussie friends in Melbourne, Australia are gearing up for their Labour Day weekend coming up in March and they’ve got a fun looking party to look forward to. I’ve seen a few of the sexy and creative party promo videos by event company JOHN in the past and this latest one is just as hot (if not hotter) than the previous ones.
The video has a “manly labour” theme to it, with some super sexy men in construction worker gear & hard hats. As they unbutton their tops, a pair of hands come up from below and pulls down their shorts. It’s a pretty hot video for sure. Since I didn’t post about those past JOHN videos, I’ve also included some of those below (even though those events have already occurred… their hotness doesn’t expire). The director and editor of these sexy promo videos is named Nik Dimopoulos.
Check out the sexy and creative NSFW party promo videos below. For our Aussie readers, have any of you gone to these JOHN parties? If so, share your experiences below!
