    With smartwatches and smartphones exploding on the market nowadays, Elllen thought it would be a good opportunity to show kids the technology of the past and remind them how far we've come. Mostly though, she just wanted to push these kids' buttons and see how they'd react to an old handheld phone, a typewriter, and an answering machine.  Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

    Besides the Mona Lisa, The Last Supper and the Vitruvian Man, it seems we also have Leonardo da Vinci to thank for this penis doodle. Yes, the same genius who is credited as the archetype of the “Renaissance man” also seems to have had a thing for the men of the Renaissance. Here’s the drawing that was uncovered in Leonardos’s notebook, which was actually drawn by his apprentice Salai (who was very likely also his lover): The drawing shows two crudely drawn penises marching towards a mysterious hole. The hole, consequently, is labeled “Salai.” So either…

  • SHAPE UP: Finding Balance In #BeastMode

    Jeremy Kinser
    21 Sep 2014 | 5:30 am
    Too often I observe the “Beast Mode Robot.” Five minutes on a stationary bike to warm-up then right over to the squat rack or bench press, load on the plates and get to work pushing those heavy weights again, right? Grrrr! We humans tend to be repetitive creatures of habit and preference. We like what we like and we do what we do. For this reason, I often see clients with sedentary lives struggle to find a sustainable relationship with being active, and also why I see many already active clients experiencing muscle imbalances and overuse-related injuries. In a rut? Then change it up!
  • Harassment, Abuse, And Extortion: The Everyday Struggles Of Gay Mexicans Revealed

    21 Sep 2014 | 5:00 am
    The state of Coahuila in Mexico recently legalized same-sex marriage, becoming the first of the country’s 31 states to do so through the legislative process. But the fight for equality for gay people living in south of the border is far from over. “The police here are very coercive and manipulative,” says 36-year-old Cesar Salazar (pictured). “They are not on our side. They see gay people as targets.” Salazar is a professional actor and musician. He lives with his family in Mexico City, where he was born and raised. In an exclusive interview with Queerty,…

Unfamiliar with it (and with Hallowe’en drifting closer), I went in search of “Thrawn Janet.” I was thinking Janet gets thrawn off a cliff or something, but “thrawn” is (chiefly) Scottish for twisted or crooked (also perverse or ill-tempered). To set it up: “Thrawn Janet” is actually Janet M’Clour, an “auld limmer” (“A light…

If you noticed that on two of the most competitive cars on the Formula 1 circuit that a certain logo and corporate color appears on them. In 1990, we were not entirely prepared for the Q45 flagship.

Lake Untersee by playwright Joe Waechter is a striking portrait of narcissistic parents who lack enough humanity to grapple with their teenaged son’s emotional difficulties. 15 year old Rocky (Michael Thurston) is so traumatized that his primary form of communication is grunting. He also has a delusion -or is it a vision?- that his soulmate, identified as male, is trapped beneath ice in Antarctica.

    Manchester kicks off the week of Bi Visibility Day today with a Bi Coffee meet & chat focused on our community history. The city has a long record of bi activism, with the UK’s longest-running bisexual group and BCN magazine published there since 1998. But it also has a history of challenges, with a city council that had the non-existence of bis as a matter of policy through the 80s and 90s, and a gay scene notorious for “no bisexuals” door policies up until the passing of the 2005 Goods & Services Act. The meet will be followed by an outing to see Pride, a film about the…

    Anti-LGBT activists do and say all kinds of truly shitty and deeply dangerous things as they work to dehumanize, delegitimize, and deny rights to certain citizens. They do this. By choice. Most of them for a paycheck. But then, when those actual LGBT humans who are actually harmed by their work simply say, "Hey, look at these people and their campaigns against us," these very same people who work to hurt us turn around and claim they are the victims simply because their opponents (i.e. their targets) are calling them out for their own chosen line of work.

    Mark Regnerus, a man whose widely discredited "research" actively drained a bit a gas from the anti-equality movement, is now in the business of making predictions. According to the burgeoning conservative pundit, the fight against "real marriage" is running out of gas: Well I can hear that his movement is not in danger of running out of hot air. But wishful thinking there, Mark. When your movement runs on organic truth, you don't need crude matter. And frankly, pal, you're the last person who should even be making such a suggestion.

I mean, I think it's a very bizarre choice. And yes, there is an undercurrent of homophobia, considering it's being portrayed as an "extreme" stunt kind of thing. But for the most part, I'm just kind of like, "whatever." People are of their own free will, and if these straight men want to make this unusual choice for themselves and their apparently platonic love, then that does not harm me. But…

    Hot on the heels of Scotland's rejection of independence from the United Kingdom, Sinn Fein is calling for a referendum on reuniting Northern Ireland with Ireland. Via Reuters: Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams said Scotland's "inspiring" referendum on independence would accelerate a vote to unite Ireland, a prospect quickly dismissed by Unionists who share power in Northern Ireland. Scotland spurned independence in a historic vote that threatened to rip the United Kingdom apart but an electrifying campaign has emboldened separatist movements across Europe from Catalonia to Flanders.

U.S. District Court Judge Martin Feldman, following extensive briefing and argument, ruled that the U.S. Constitution does not prohibit the state of Louisiana from defining marriage solely as one man and one woman, nor refusing to recognize so-called same-sex marriages performed elsewhere. He found that the state had several valid reasons for having adopted this position, which was approved by 78 percent of its voters. One reason, Feldman wrote, was to encourage children to be raised by their mother…

    Sometimes I fall in love with songs ridiculously late. I have no one buy myself to blame, obviously. This is partly because my new song consumption consists of what I hear on the radio driving to and from work and/or getting groceries, mostly. The other part is because of my cranky resistance at watching music vides online – isn’t that what MTV should be for? But now, four months after it was released, I’ve finally watched the video for Sia’s “Chandelier.” I loved the song at first listen, but kind of forgot about it.

    Renowned Russian homophobe and St. Petersburg lawmaker Vitaly Milonov, reportedly showed up with Russian Orthodox activists at a gay rights event in St. Petersburg, Russia, yesterday, doused the attendees with a green antisceptic liquid, and then gassed the room. Several attendees fell ill from the gas, according to a report from Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty. You know who else gassed the gays?

It’s called, in Italian, “The Hetero Initiative for Gay Rights.” (You can read the English subtitles by simply hitting the ‘cc’ button on the bottom right of the YouTube video.) The video is Fabio’s humorous take on why every straight person should be for gay rights. Fabio Morìci, by Chi67. It’s quite fun, and a nice way to start the day.

    It seems a recent car crash in Idaho, that could have easily killed 5 teenagers, came about because a 16-year-old boy thought it might be fun to light the 18-year-old driver’s armpit hair on fire. Because, you know, who hasn’t tried that? Here’s the actual photo of the wreck, from the Ada County Sheriff’s Office: In all seriousness, the kids are lucky they aren’t dead. None of them were wearing seat belts, and the ensuing accident threw two of the girls, age 15 and 16, from the car. The driver initially claimed that he swerved to avoid an animal. Only later,…

    Just in time for the Jewish New Year comes a new children’s book by Lesléa Newman, author of the classic Heather Has Two Mommies, taking us on a year-long journey through the Jewish holidays. Here Is the World: A Year of Jewish Holidays begins with an infant girl’s naming ceremony, moves to the weekly observance of Shabbat, and then proceeds to the yearly cycle from Rosh Hashanah through Shavuot (a lesser-known holiday that deserves greater recognition, in my opinion, as it is often celebrated with cheesecake). The book ends by bringing us back to Shabbat, in many ways…

The show is called Vicious, and it is a BBC import that shows on PBS on Sunday nights (and is available on DVD). In Vicious, Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi are Freddie and Stuart, an elderly gay couple who have been together for 48 years and maintain a love/hate relationship... they are bitter and petty and bitchy and yes vicious to each other. And it is awesome. I told my husband…

  • The 2014 Elections: You Can Make a Difference

    Jesse Monteagudo
    21 Sep 2014 | 1:00 pm
    In 2008, a coalition of women, racial minorities, environmentalists, labor unions, civil libertarians, anti-war activists, and LGBT people helped elect Barack Obama as President of the United States, along with a large Democratic majority in the Senate and House of Representatives. In 2010, Obama and the Democrats suffered a setback when the Republicans took the House. In 2012, Obama was re-elected President and, though the GOP kept the House, the Democrats retained the Senate. The 2014 midterms threaten to be another bad round for the Democrats, with Republican candidates ready to topple red…
  • Hatred and Bigotry: It's All They Have Left

    21 Sep 2014 | 10:00 am
    Last month I had the privilege of traveling to Chicago to hear oral arguments at the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in the federal cases challenging marriage discrimination in Indiana and my home state of Wisconsin. It was my first time inside a federal courtroom, and as most readers will probably know, what transpired that day was nothing short of remarkable: a three-judge panel led by Judge Richard Posner, a Reagan appointee, utterly shredded the anti-gay arguments put forth by attorneys from both states. It was perhaps marriage equality's best day in court to date (other than DOMA…

    "If you have family in these kafir [infidel] countries [i.e., countries ruled by non-Muslims], what is gonna happen most probably?" the fighter says. "You don't have control of your children. Maybe in some of the countries it is a must for you to put your children in the kafir schools, and who's gonna teach your children? It's gonna be maybe a gay, maybe a drug dealer, maybe a pedophile, you know? So it's very important for you to protect your children from these animals, from these dirty people, Allah says that they are the worst of creatures." -- Part of a video message from a militant…

    "If two individuals, three individuals, four individuals, 12 individuals, want to contract with one another, as long as those contracts are legal, I have no problem with those folks contracting with one another to do what is a lawful activity. We'll have opportunities in the future to address questions of what are legal contracts. There will be folks that will look at different types of contracts between individuals. I think a court will determine if those are for a legal purpose or not." -- Republican South Dakota Senate candidate Mike Rounds during a debate earlier this month. Rounds agreed…

    We’re almost sixty posts in and we’ve really yet to have the voice of youth speak to us. Someone approached me a couple of months ago and I was a bit hesitant because the only way we could see engaging someone younger was to do it interview style. This didn’t appeal to me since it then lacks the spontaneity of someone writing about their own thing. So, what I did instead is give a a huge number of topics and let her run wild with answering everything. If you’ve ever wondered how a 14-year-old member of the LGBT community views things–the world and even just…

    18 Sep 2014 | 3:00 am
    Do you remember the episode of Friends where Ross and Rachael come up with a list of pros and cons about each other? Rachael can’t think of anything bad to say about Ross because, let’s face it, male ego is pretty fragile, but Ross does wind up writing “Just a waitress” in the cons about her. Naturally, Rachael sees it and while it’s played for comic effect, the character is pretty hurt by it. I used to think it was a slight overreaction. Insulting, but an overreaction. I’m not thinking so right now, not after a conversation I had this week. We all say and do things we regret.

I don’t like the idea of ceasing to be. It bugs me. And I don’t want to suddenly cease to be while being bugged about it. You’d be surprised just how far being annoyed can carry you. I’d end up coalescing as someone else’s bad mood and that would just piss me right off. No, I prefer my idea of the afterlife. There are people no longer here who I want to see again, people I’ve never had the chance…

    I remember when standing in line for thirty minutes for my badge was the worst thing about Dragon*Con (or DragonCon). And, really, that’s not much to complain about. I learned quickly, too, that if I wanted to catch a popular panel and didn’t want to stand outside that I should just hang around the door area and when everybody came in, I could hop on at the back and walk in. Sure, the seats were in the back, but they have video screens set up for us. It still all worked and I got to see everything I wanted to. That was ten years ago. These days? Well, the convention has grown and things…

We arrived on a Thursday evening, stood in line for a thirty minutes to pick our badges up, then relaxed in our room for the rest of the night. We got up the next morning, met friends at the Hilton for breakfast, then went our separate ways for four days until the convention was over. During that time, we attended panels, ate bad food, sucked on breath mints before meeting celebrities, and avoided…

    There is some stuff I wish people would have told me before we became parents.  Not that “it will change your life” nonsense because, you would have to be mentally challenged if you don’t realize that.  Also, then it might not be the best idea for you to have children and perhaps you should first start with a small pet or a house plant.  The things I wish I were told before becoming a father is not unlike that T&C’s and/or fine prints you find in contracts.  Or the leaflets you find accompanying your medication.  We all know that we really should read them…

    20 Aug 2014 | 5:00 am
    By Roy SteeleEvery day we see a variation of this headline, “So and So” says that gay people shouldn’t get “special rights,” or “extra rights.” Sometimes a real brainiac will say “if gay people get rights, they’re taking away my rights, and that’s not right.” Of course the brainiac usually can’t articulate what rights are being “stolen,” but the media still reports that the comment was made.When a state embraced marriage equality, no one’s rights were taken away. When a city passed a non-discrimination ordinance, no one’s rights were taken away. When a Fortune…

Police troops fired tear gas on a television crew. This mirrors the ongoing web censorship efforts.The governments around the world are reacting the exact same way today as they did when the printing press arrived 500 years ago. There isn’t really anything new under the sun.Then, as now, they were used to telling people what was true and what wasn’t, telling whatever story that fit whatever it was they wanted to…

    Picture from 76 crimes.com Gay marriage seems to be a big deal nowadays, more and more couples are somehow trying to have the same settled lifestyle straight people has, by that I mean getting married and having children/adopting. As the gay population keeps getting the chance to be more opened about their sexuality (in some countries), we keep on pushing the lines to allow ourself to get all the rights as every person should have, no matter what their sexual orientation is. Here’s a list with some of the countries where gay marriage is legal. The Netherlands: April 1, 2001 Belgium:…

Tommy Boatwright in The Normal Heart (portrayed by Jim Parsons) Given my age, that I didn’t come into the gay scene properly until around 2004 and that I didn’t know any older gay guys growing up I had very little idea of the horror, injustice and grief that so many gay men had witnessed or had gone through during the AIDS crisis of the 1980s and 1990s.

    The more you travel, the more you get to live new experiences. Some of them can be taken as good and some others… Well, you would prefer not to repeat them. Depending where you’re traveling the attitude towards gay tourists is different, some countries allow you to be openly gay, others just take you to jail and treat you as a criminal for expressing the way you are. Some of the problems gay tourists experience while begin abroad change from time to time, some of them include: Rudeness from locals, public discrimination, and worse case scenario physical violence.

  • #RainbowLaces: Football Against Homophobia

    Sam Wood
    9 Sep 2014 | 11:00 pm
    There are several ways in which I am not typically British. One of them is that I’m not interested in football. Being a gay man, however, this may not be terribly surprisingly, given the stereotype that we typically don’t care for sport. (Just to be clear, I mean what Americans call ‘soccer’ but the rest of the world knows as football.) However, when I heard about this campaign, Rainbow Laces, I was intrigued. You see, I may not care much about a group of men kicking a leather ball around a field, but I do care about raising awareness of homophobia in all aspects of daily life, sport…

    But I'm struck by how much a person's whole identity is linked to or determined by their on-line personae. Then, to have that taken away feels shaming and as if we are being forced again into invisibility. But the way this type of thing makes some feel- is a product of years and years of cultural oppression.

    Thomas Waters
    9 Sep 2014 | 1:35 pm
    I'm of the belief that failure to allow a bisexual person to so identify is really a matter of the internalized homophobia of the person judging. Both of these persons confront the notion held by many straight persons as well as many lesbian/gay persons, that you are either one or the other- gay or straight.
