  1. I wrote a song about gay dating and grindr and Tinder and I’m curious how you guys feel about it and if you can relate! I know I’m not the greatest singer but it’s more about the message. its this song:
  2. https://www.pinknews.co.uk/2021/02/17/us-equality-act-vote-house-of-representatives/ The Equality Act would amend existing civil rights legislation to bar discrimination based on gender identification and ***ual orientation (Getty/Tom Williams) Democrats in the House of Representatives are to revive the Equality Act next week, in a bid to break the impasse over bill to protect LGBT+ people in all 50 states. The bill would amend existing Civil Rights Act provisions barring discrimination based on race and *** to also add specific protections for ***ual orientation and gender identity. Republicans have stood in the way of the measure and predecessor bills for more than two decades. While the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives passed the Equality Act in 2019 by a vote of 236-173, it was never even brought for a vote in the then-Republican controlled Senate. However, with Democrats now in control of the House, Senate and presidency for the first time in a decade, efforts to pass the bill are being stepped up in line with Joe Biden‘s promise to make it a priority in his first 100 days.
  3. Maybe I'm blind, but I think there's a gay couple in the Piece of Me video. I'm almost sure but since I couldn't find anyone pointing this out on the internet, maybe I'm wrong. If true, it'd be cool af, proves Brit's supporting gays since forever. Here are some shots. What do you think?

She played Cristina Ortiz "La Veneno" in her early 20s for the HBO series Veneno (a must watch, this show has gained praise from most of the Pose cast members). Arriba #freebritney
  5. so basically this discussion was brought to my attention by the thread and argument under this tweet basically people are arguing about whether it's okay for Doja Cat to have used the word f-ggot because she is bisexual. a lot of people are saying that the f slur should only be used by gay and bisexual men, as historically it has been used to target homosexual men specifically. Some bi women and lesbians in the thread however disagree, saying that since the word has been used against them, they have the right to reclaim it. I personally don't think it feels right for lesbians and bi women to use it, that word has such a strong connotation to me and historical use that has always targeted males in the community (and transgender and nonbinary people too). I wouldn't feel comfortable using the word d-ke either. Sure you can make argument that people who have been a victim of a slur personally in their lives have a right to reclaim it, but i don't think that argument holds up. A lot of non-black POC have been called the n-word in their lives, but they shouldn't say the n-word. If me, a neurotypical person, grew up being bullied and called r--tard, do i have a pass for the rest of my life to use the r slur? what do you guys think? Bonus question: How do you feel about bisexuals calling themselves gay? of course they're part of the LGBT community but to me it just feels weird to use the word gay, like do gay people not get their own word? saying you're bi is shorter and more accurate of a description, so why not just say that? it just feels strange to me because the experiences of the two can be so different and doesn't make sense for them to be conflated. For example, I have a female bi friend who has only publicly dated men, and her calling herself gay.. just feels.. wrong. Like it's appropriative, her experience does not align at all with the experiences of lesbians and gay men, so calling yourself gay doesn't seem to make sense. anyways, i hope we can have a civil discussion about this and i'd like to hear all of your thoughts!
  6. Justin Timberlake says he feels honored to be considered an ally of the LGBTQ community. “I very much enjoy being an ally, and it’s a true honor anytime someone addresses me that way.” We love him again. Exhale, is JT your new LGBTQ king? Related:
  7. The user named Alana planned on having Lindsay tell her parents she was coming-out through a Cameo video. Alana revealed that Lindsay's response was unexpected and shared the video to her followers. Instead of coming-out for her she offered her advice and told her to speak her own truth. Alana also revealed later on Monday that she took Lindsay's advice and came out to her parents. She said “they took it well, so that’s good,” she said. “I’m feeling very relieved.” What are your thoughts ? Would you have a celeb help you come out to your parents ?
  8. After coming out as trans a few months ago, Juno star Elliot Page was reported by TMZ to have filed for divorce from their wife Emma Portner in Manhattan earlier today. Elliot Page and Emma Porter have since released a joint statement through their representatives, "After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce following our separation last summer. We have the utmost respect for each other and remain close friends.” The couple first got married in early 2018. Elliot Page wrote "Can't believe I get to call this extraordinary woman my wife." Dance and choreographer Emma also provided massive support when Elliot went through their transition. She defended them against online trolls and hate messages. They seemed like such a great couple, so I'm glad they are still remaining friends, but another beautiful couple in Hollywood split again. Who will be the next?
  9. Kevin (Casey Cott) gets caught looking for a hook up by Betty and Cheryl.. Why they admit he lied and when he is asked to tell the truth. He's brutally honest. While his straight friends have options and lots of choices to do what they want when it comes to getting down. For Kevin being openly gay in a small town, he really is unlike them as his options are much limited and smaller and for him a moment of being intimate with a man, is worth risking his life. Can any of you actually relate to what Kevin said, that his needs are sometimes worth risking his life.
  10. President Biden repealed a decision made by the Trump administration that banned transgender people from serving in the military. Biden also hired a transgendered woman to serve as the assistant health secretary. We love to see it Related:
  11. Hey all. Firstly, let me tell you why I decided to write a post about this. Professionally, I am a content writer, and I adore writing some good quality content but usually for work. However, every now and then, things happen in my life that shake me up to the core and force me to think - to think about life, about how one's life is supposed to look like, and how we take this gift we were given for granted because the society overwhelms us by making us focus on completely irrelevant things that pass quicker than a flash. So here's my story, and here's why it made me realize that gay culture (in my personal opinion), in its current state, is extremely damaging for most of the gays, and why we need to wake up because we don't even realize why it is we're often feeling so sad, incomplete, and alone. The Intruder in My Body By the end of November and the beginning of December, I started to feel quite nauseous. I completely lost my apetite and even the thought of food made me feel like I'm gonna puke. I thought it was depression or anxiety, even though I never quite felt like this before in my life, I thought that maybe everything we've been going through with the epidemic is finally getting to me. I thought if I started reading some good quality books to help me elevate myself, I could fight anxiety or depression, or whatever it was that was making me feel this way. But it didn't stop at all; days passed and I started to lose the will to live at all. I hated getting up early for work, I hated working out (although I would feel better afterwards), I hated doing most things that made me, ME. So I decided to go back home for a while (home office due to the COVID-19 epidemic) hoping being with my family and being in our country house every now and then would help me. And although it did help me feel better mentally, I was still sick to my stomach. Two days after coming back, my mother noticed my eyeballs were getting yellow-ish, and the following day I turned completely yellow. Doctor diagnosed me with jaundice, but they had to discover what was causing it. After examining my gallbladder and liver, they realized the probem wasn't there, which nearly automatically meant I had some sort of hepatitis; and my blood test showed it was Hepatitis B. The Consequences of My Acts Now, don't get me wrong, I'm no drama queen and Hepatitis B certainly isn't something one could die from. Overall, your body eliminates the virus after 3 months and you develop life-long antibodies, which is great. So obviously, it wasn't this that so mentally ****ed me up, it was the fact that someone whom I've slept with 2-3 months prior to me getting symptoms decided to sleep with me knowing very well I will get the virus. This person didn't care about me one bit. Naturally, Hepatitis B is in most case transmitted ***ually, especially in gay men - so doctors urgently had to test me for HIV too, just in case. Even though I ALWAYS use protection (*****s) when I sleep with other men, I was horrified that I might have HIV as well. After all, the chances were there. Again, I'm not being a drama queen, I know very well that people with HIV live happy, healthy, and long lives nowadays. Still, I was shocked that someone could actually be ready to transmit such a serious virus to a person, and so I kept thinking about my life, about everything right or wrong that I did. About all the silly, IRRELEVANT, things I spent both time and money on. Luckily, after double testing, I was HIV negative and I was jumping through the roof! But here's what I realized while waiting nearly 48 hours for double tests to show whether I will be obliged to drink anti-HIV medicine my whole life or if I will be able to continue with my life unscathed and one experience wealthier. The Horrible Realization I spent last 2-3 years being convinced that the better I looked, the better I will feel. I was convinced that no handsome guy would even look at me if I'm not muscular, successful, and handsome. So I worked hard at the gym, and I got the gym body I so badly wanted. I worked very hard too and I got that amazing salary and position, and I got many gay men to notice me. I shopped for all kinds of amazing, expensive clothes so I could look flawless and trendy at all times. So I had a lot of *** (always protected) with a lot of different, very hot guys - and I thought I was happy. I thought to myself "this is it, I'm living the gay dream, this is what I wanted the whole time as an overweight, loser teenager." And although I do firmly believe this is my fault, it's equally the fault of our culture. Our culture has become so toxic that it convinces us if we don't look like models, we are worthless. We can't get a proper *** partner that we find hot, we can't have a relationship with a guy we like if we're not up to his already insanely high standards, etc. I thought that I was doing exactly what our LGBTQI+ elders fought and died for, and me having *** without people telling me I can't and without any risk of being prosecuted for it meant celebrating my rights as a free gay man. But I was wrong...very wrong. I was so tunnelvisioned into what doesn't even matter. Yes I have a great gym body I invested hundreds of euros and so much time in, but for what? So I could turn heads and feel better? So I could sleep with anyone I found attractive? Not for myself? Not so I would feel good and healthy? I am successful so others could say I'm successful, so they could envy me and find me more desirable in every way. I am writing this because I want you to realize something that I realized only once I was afraid for my life - you are the owner of your mind and body, nobody else. Celebrating our rights by having meaningless *** is putting a stain on everything our elders fought for. Yet I see SO MANY gays doing just that, over and over again. It's easy to be alone while being young, it's easy being hot and desirable in your 20s, 30s, and even 40s. It's easy earning a lot when your whole life revolves around you and your needs only. But what happens after that? What happens once we're not at the height of our youth? Once our bodies stop being head-turners? Here's what I've Learned I am not telling you to run for it and let yourself go or just desperately try to find a man so you don't end up alone. I am telling you to focus your life on what truly matters. If you want to be good-looking, do it for yourself. If you want to be successful, do it because it makes YOU feel happy and safe. And most importantly, always strive to make others around you feel happy and loved. Love is what makes this world go round. One cannot find happiness untill one offers it to those around them first. So respect others, love them, help them whenever you can, make sure your family, friends, and partner know exactly how special they are to you. Focus your attention on what truly matters and makes you happy because this life is so short and valuable, and you're not getting any re-runs. Your happiness is your own, and it does not depend on anyone else! The Second Shot at Life The 48 hours passed, and as my doctor approached my hospital bed to give me the news, I thought to myself "ok, you screwed up, but let's make it worth with what time we have left." "Congratulations Felix, you're HIV negative and your Hepatitis B infection is accute, you should be fine in 2-3 months." As a huge, deep sigh, left my chest through my mouth, I nearly fainted - "I got a second chance at life," I thought to myself. I am at home-rest now, and I promised to myself that I will spend my life making myself and those dear to me happy. I will celebrate my gay rights by never hiding who I am and by finding (some day) a man who I will love, regardless if it is in public in front of everyone or in the privacy of our own home. I promised that whatever I do, it will be for the benefit of my health and happiness. And I beg of you to do the same. Don't ever get into a situation where you will regret wasting the amazing gift you were given. Love you all, and I hope you stay safe
  12. This is legit legendary. I'm happy for her
  13. Biden has selected Pennsylvania's leading health official and a proud transgender woman, Dr. Rachel Levine, for assistant health secretary She will be the first openly transgender federal official if confirmed by the U.S. Senate. She also serves as Professor of Pediatrics & Psychiatry at Penn State College of Medicine. We love inclusivity!! Looking forward to the day this wouldn't even need to be a story. Related:
  14. Adult entertainer (please do not post his pix here) Matthew Camp was the subject of an apparent attempted murder. His house was set ablaze while he and his roommate were inside asleep. "January 14, 2021. An arsonist poured gasoline on the front porch of my home and set it on fire in an apparent hate crime," he wrote to Instagram. "I was asleep inside. I am alive to face this person one day but everything I have ever owned is gone." Camp posted surveillance footage of the arson pouring gasoline on his front porch of his Poughkeepsie home. It's disturbing. Camp set up a GoFundMe with a target goal of $60K as he has lost everything in the fire. I did some digging and some are suspicious of the story. Apparently this house is a "church of Satan?" I'm not even sure what that means. But if that's the case, it's not a hate crime for being gay, rather for religious reasons. Either way, it's unacceptable. "It went by many names to many people," Camp tells Out. Camp's bedroom was near the front porch. "To the outside world, maybe they reduced it to the 'Halloween House' but to my chosen family and myself it was much more than that." Camp alleged on social media that this was a hate crime as a result of his ***uality as well as his status as a *** worker. "Share this story because queer people are still under attack all over the world," he wrote. "Our voices will not be silenced." Super sad. Glad he and his roommate are physically ok.
  15. Biden is already planning to make America great again! https://www.cnsnews.com/article/washington/cnsnewscom-staff/bidennext-week-hell-give-transgenders-access-sports-locker

  18. Update: New York apologized. She says the woman in the clip isn't transgendered. NY also says people constantly mistake her for a man. Exhale, thoughts? Earlier: New York acted abhorrent to a trans woman in this new clip (it aired recently). I'm not sure what show this is or what she's up to in her career, but I am saddened. I love New York cause she's hilarious but this behavior is intolerable. Thoughts, Exhale?
  19. I wouldn't call it social experiment but I have an interestning question to ask that I was questioning myself as there was few hot news topics including subjects of they/them and other pronouns which makes a lot of confusion. For all CIS people... imagine if someome was talking about you as they/them would you be okay with it? Please try to be respectful.
  20. In 2000, a groundbreaking show aired on showtime called queer as folk. The show aged badly, from their views on straight men, several conversations put good people as the people who bully them. As Group leader Brian Kinney said. "They're all the same, they pretend to be your friends, and behind your back they show their true colors". Even Justin who was gay bashed refused to forgive the person who did it, though it was wrong. The guy said, you kept flaunting it, it made a lot of us mad and uncomfortable and you bringing your boyfriend to the prom was just the final straw. I know you can't help it, but it's not about you. You guys don't understand that a time and place for everything.. Keep it to yourself at school, everything would be fine. Justin even told his teacher, I'm that F. You love to hate ,so f u. The whole show is problematic . Even how they handled drug addiction. Emmett told his friend Ted, you say you're gonna fix yourself, but you know you dont believe in yourself, so you won't seek the help you absolutely need. To even having the one gay seeking his forever prince charming, from the mom that adopts everybody and is way too in the hag status. It represents the older community, and unfortunately it's the only show that actually portrayed the gay community accurately even if this community actually aged badly In real representations as well.. Here's a 16 minute video of the first season. There was also no blacks represented and the lesbian couple felt very token and not appreciated. The L word was a better representation.
  21. https://www.vice.com/en/article/xwjj5a/when-i-came-out-i-wasnt-ready-for-the-judgment-that-came-from-within-the-community We tend, to be our own worst enemy.. Not only we get judged by a society, but we judge each other as well. That many refuse to come out cos of these out dated rules. #1. The overtly over ***ualized our community has truly become, many gay men require a hook up just to test compatibility before a proper date happens.. When refused some get called prudes, but fail to realize they were raised to be conservative about their love and *** lives.. Best solution is to date, with people who believe in the same values as you.. Problem solved.. #2 Pop culture knowledge and love of pop music, Broadway and etc. This has been outdated as many gays like heavy metal, or thrash metal gays feel like they don't get represented. Bottom line, this one is hella outdated and needs to be thrown out. There are gays that like homophobic acts especially in reggae music like Beenie man, saying music is music, we should stop letting LGBT mags tell us who we should listen to. They don't represent everybody. #3. Body shaming. The gay community is notorious for this, not everybody wants the perfect body. Not everybody wants to live on a salad and gym diet. Have thay slice of cheese pizza and that xxl mountain dew. You're only hurting yourself by ignoring these cravings.. Bottom line, stop being shallow. We all have different body structures. Even my doctor said to me as a big boned person, the body mass index is actually outdated and needs to be thrown out..
