It’s kind of a tongue twister, but that’s the latest video response that originated about a month ago with unique approach to getting the message about marriage equality across: “Gay Men Will Marry Your Girlfriends“. Following that first video came the response from straight men, and more recently, “Gay Women Will Marry Your Boyfriends.” Now, the straight women have something to say.
In this video, the girlfriends of the straight homophobes speak up and say how “f*cking awesome” it would be for them to marry the gays that have said they would marry them. “The ladies that want fairytale weddings would actually get it, to a degree they never could have imagined,” says one woman. She later adds, “My dad wanted me to tell that he doesn’t hate you because you de-virginized me. He knows you didn’t de-virginize me.” LOL. Watch & enjoy the new video below.
Uploaded only a couple days ago, a new YouTube pilot for a gay web series has close to 20,000 views and with a such a positive response, they have another episode coming out soon.
Here’s the premise of the series: “My Gay Roommate centers on the unique relationship forged between a straight boy from Ohio and his very gay freshman roommate. It follows their experiences, altercations, and the slightly absurd situations they find themselves in as first time college students — everything from losing their virginities to cleanliness and everything in between. #MGR #Diva #Fiercebetch”
The show was created by Noam Ash and Austin Bening, and stars Noam Ash as Nick Cohen and Philip Lockwood-Bean as James Thatcher. When the boys first meet, one of them is dancing in his underwear to Katy Perry’s “Peacock” and caught of guard when the other steps into the room. “When a guy is peacocking, don’t come-a-knocking?” No, that was bad. #jokefail. Just watch the video below.
YouTube star Davey Wavey has an interesting way of telling things like it is, and his latest video is no exception. In this video titled “Gay Things Straight Guys Do,” he lists and/or demonstrates various things that straight guys do that can seem pretty gay in the eyes of gay men.
The first example, as you can see above, is wrestling. “Wrestling is pretty much the gayest thing in the world. The only difference between wrestling and like 90% of gay porn is that… there actually is no difference – so they’re the same thing.” Following that statement, Wavey and his straight friend demonstrate some wrestling, but it gets cut short when he says, “Stop! I’m getting hard!” LOL.
As always, Davey Wavey is just having some fun with the topic and it’s not to be taken seriously. If anything, he demonstrates that gay guys and straight guys have a lot more in common than one might think. Watch and enjoy the video below.
A new gay magazine about men who date men based out of Australia is launching this January called Hello Mr. and it has been described as follows: “It’s the overdue response to the unending clichés that surround current gay lifestyle publications. Rather than pushing agendas or perfecting appearances, it’s about relevant material for a misrepresented generation with an evolved range of interests. A chronicle of everyday life, and the narratives which define it.”
The magazine will be published twice a year (starting in January), and each issue will contain written and visual contributions from people all around the globe. The concept description combined with their promotional images and video really caught my attention. This Kickstarter Project, headed by a guy named Ryan Fitzgibbon will only be funded if they reach their goal of $20,000 by November 24. So far, they are about halfway there. I just pledged this morning and am told that I can expect to receive my first issue in February 2013 (they do ship worldwide). I’m not sure what to expect, but there’s no harm in checking it out! I’ve seen some criticize the idea completely already, but I personally feel that that is just a symptom of when gays are harder on each other. Sometimes we are our own worst enemies and don’t support each other. In my opinion, there’s plenty of room in the market for another gay magazine that ventures to take a different angle on connecting with gay readers. Sure it may not end up being everyone‘s cup of tea, but then again, what is?
Check out their intriguing promo pictures and video below. I’ve also included the link to their Kickstarter page below as well, should you be interested in more information and/or supporting the project.
The writers and editors of The Stranger have a book out called How To Be A Person: The Stranger’s Guide to College, Sex, Intoxicants, Tacos, and Life Itself and coming out of the closet is one of the many subjects they cover. In promotion of the book, the’ve release a little video sharing a suggestion on how to come out and tell someone you’re gay. The book has tons of info on things that everyone else “forgot” to tell you, including:
“How to have a conversation, how to turn a crush into something more, everything there is to know about physics (in a single paragraph!), what the music you like says about you, spoiler alerts for big novels so you can flirt with English majors as if you’ve already read them, how to come out (should you happen to be gay), how to deal with a hangover, how to binge drink and not die, how to do laundry, how to do drugs (and which ones you should never do), sexual positions you should try, how to write a great sentence, and a state-by-state guide to the U.S. of A. It’s all here, along with Dan Savage‘s very best advice about sex and love.”
The cute video below shows how to come out in a very simplistic way. Hopefully it helps someone get both feet out the door!
With the summer upon us, gays everywhere begin to think of one thing… well two things: (1) Looking good in the least amount of clothing possible and (2) PRIDE! Gay pride really is a second Christmas for homos and their straight/bi-curious friends, a Christmas laden with Speedos, binge drinking, camaraderie and making out with complete strangers from out of town. For those living in the Northwest, our summers are dominated by Pride events, with Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver, BC Prides all occurring in succession. Pride is a mini-vacation, with the majority of us taking three-day weekends (or calling in sick on Monday) and driving short distances to break from our normal lives.
What once started with a march through the city, has now become a three-day event, filled with house parties, pool parties, BBQ’s and get-togethers. All ending in a huge block party. For those that have never been to a pride, the block party is truly something interesting. Within this one city-block, the sidewalks are lined with makeshift bars, grills cooking the usual summer BBQ fare for those who dare to be seen eating at a gay event, and a stage with rainbows everywhere. Gracing the stage with their presence are numerous foul-mouthed drag queens, muscular porn stars, twinky go-go dancers and D-list entertainers, usually some one-hit-wonder from the late eighties/early nineties or an American Idol runner up. Most importantly though, the block party is filled with every ‘mo and mary in a 20 mile radius. It is a literal “who’s who” of the gay community, or a “who’s that” depending on the city. Although it may look like a harmless shirtless boy-party, the debauchery that can occur rivals that of Spring Break on Girls Gone Wild. I have seen the ads: I know straight people are no better. But I digress. The point is all of these homos gather for one purpose: to dance and drink from 11am ’till 2am.
A man named Josh Weed recently posted on his blog that he was gay, mormon and married to a woman. The blog post (which was posted on the 10 year anniversary of his marriage) went viral and has sparked a lot of discussion around the situation and most recently, an interview with Nightline which I have included below. Here’s what he had said in his blog:
“Some might assume that because I’m married to a woman, I must be bisexual. This would be true if sexual orientation was defined by sexual experience. Heck, if sexual orientation were defined by sexual experience, I would be as straight as the day is long even though I’ve never been turned on by a Victoria’s Secret commercial in my entire life. Sexual orientation is defined by attraction, not by experience. In my case, I am attracted sexually to men. Period. Yet my marriage is wonderful, and Lolly and I have an extremely healthy and robust sex life. How can this be?”
In the interview, one Mormon says that the Weeds have set a bad example. “Using religion or spirituality as a way to manage your sexual orientation, you know, by being extra righteous or extra faithful as a way to sort of suppress those feelings or control yourself is the most damaging way to cope or deal with your same sex attraction. It’s a very interesting situation and interview and I recommend checking it out below and sharing your thoughts on this in the comments.
In honor of Mother’s Day, some of the Homorazzi cast has decided to proclaim their love to their respective mothers on the website. We hope you enjoy the read.
I love my Mom, and just recently we’ve developed a relationship of being less Mother/Son and more friends who can share a good laugh and story over a drink or two. While growing up, I never thought that I would come to a place where I actually WANTED to hang out with my parents, but that day came knocking on my door a few years back after I invited them to my 23rd birthday party and they actually showed!
It dawned on my that my Mom is a pretty rad woman who cares a lot about her family and who’s sole goal in life is to make sure her children and grandchildren have everything in the world they could possibly want, even before her own needs. For this, I take my hat off to her, and say I love you with all my heart.
She hasn’t had the easiest life, but I would like to think that the few beers we shared in sun are well remembered and will keep her smiling!
Thanks for everything Momma, I love you!
