"Yes, I was pretty excited that night. ...wasn't expecting anyone to look up there and see that."

Trixie and the Gents






























Trixie was rather surprised when the gentlemen of the Greenwich Village Gentlemen Bachelors’ Club informed her that she didn’t actually have to take off her clothes.
"Y'all drive careful now, ya hear? And come back and see us again real soon."

David got laid.

That's what you think.

Mike Huckabee and Conservative Activists Attack Democratic Party's Marriage Equality Stance

Mike Huckabee and Conservative Activists Attack Democratic Party's Marriage Equality Stance

Joining televangelist Pat Robertson who earlier today said that same-sex marriage will be the “death knell” of the Democratic Party, Mike Huckabee and other leading conservatives have denounced the party’s decision to include marriage equality in its platform. Huckabee told Tim Wildmon of the American Family Association that the move is the “best thing that’s ever happened to the Republican Party” and “may end up sinking the ship.” He said that while people tolerate people who “choose to live in lifestyles that they don’t necessarily agree with or approve of,” they are “no longer going to support” President Obama or the Democrats for having “openly declared war on biblical marriage.” “It’s to me a very tragic day,” Huckabee maintained, “when we’re so interested in getting votes form a certain community and the contributions that they’re willing to forego their own principles and just throw them overboard.”

The Chick-fil-A Controversy Is About Religious Bullying, Not Chicken Sandwiches

The Chick-fil-A Controversy Is About Religious Bullying, Not Chicken Sandwiches: Perhaps Mike Huckabee’s scheduling of his “appreciation day” is to blame, but there is a valid reason why Chick-fil-A has continued to occupy a prominent space in the news cycle. But despite what many detractors are now trying to claim, it has nothing to do with chicken. The Washington Post’s Alexandra Petri’s mantra, “Judge the sandwich by...

Tom Daley for the U.K.

You don't have to fight over me, guys. I'm willing to be shared. :P

Chick-fil-A supports hate groups that want to put gay people in prison, so the whole Chick-fil-A thing is more complicated than Dan Cathy personally opposing marriage equality.

Homophobes are the ones who demand an explanation for homosexuality.

There are so many things in life that we accept without demanding an explanation. People generally don’t spend a lot of time inventing theories as to why they like going to the beach. They just do. And they enjoy it. It’s important to them. They look forward to it. They plan for it. They don’t pay quacks to tell them why or help them get over “unwanted”, “broken” vacation desires. But some people demand an explanation for homosexuality.

A former straight homophobic friend of mine told me about her son’s friend whom she thought might be gay. It made her terribly nervous that her son was friends with this boy. This kid spent the night at her house when he was 14, and she went into detail about a conversation she had with him late that evening when everyone else was in bed. And she apparently asked a bunch of nosy questions that were none of her business. He ended up telling her that when he was younger he and one of his cousins used to engage in sex play, and suddenly the 12-year-old cousin was turned into an evil child molester and the “abuse” this kid supposedly suffered was the “reason” he was attracted to boys.

That’s exactly how the nonsense starts. My former friend demanded a reason why this kid felt the way he did, and she got it. And she made it clear to him that the only why she was going to let him off the hook was if he played the victim. He figured that out fast.

When I read about all of this--she explained the encounter in a letter--I was horrified. She had earlier accused gay men of molesting boys in order to turn them gay, but she had revealed herself to be the molester. She wasn’t worried about that kid. She took that late night opportunity to quiz that 14-year-old boy about his most private and intimate feelings, and to plant the idea in his head that those feelings were the result of abuse of some kind, because that’s what SHE wanted. That wasn’t for him. It was for her. And who knows what kind of lasting damage she did to him that night.

Homophobic Chrisitanist and American Family Association hate group leader Buster Wilson: The Vile Shrill of Big Gay is a Joke at Best

Buster Wilson: “In fact, over the weekend I’ve observed that there is, more often than not, an attitude of shock and disgust that ANYONE would find fault with ChickFilA, especially the vile, foul mouthed, gay activists who prance around in their bikini underwear in gay pride parades. I’ve spent hours upon hours personally trying to witness to those in the Big Gay movement. I care about their souls and I care about the America they are trying to morph into an idyllic homosexual utopia.”

The Unicorn Boys

I now know that I was born a unicorn in an environment where unicorns weren’t merely unappreciated, but their existence wasn’t even acknowledged. I had the fundies on one side and the rednecks on the other. Both insisted that boys and men live inside a box known as traditional masculinity. As a result, my passions were repressed. I can remember clearly how frustrating it was when I was asked to list my interests because I couldn’t think of any. This is because I wasn’t really allowed to have official, overtly stated interests, and that’s because if I did, they would have been outside the box. At the time, I didn’t realize this and thought that perhaps I was a boring, dull person who had nothing to offer.

Eventually it dawned on me that I was interested in many things. I just didn’t know to call them interests or that a person could enrich his life by pursuing those interests. I liked movies, theater and stories. I also liked photography, art, architecture, interior design, antiques and fashion.

So I love this picture. Sure, the boys are cute and easy on the eyes, but what I like best about it is they are presented as unusual boys, as unicorn boys, boys who would be dazzled and delighted by a chandelier. I look at them and know that I was never really alone.
