road.jpg 18-year-old charged with stabbing death of gay man appears in Brooklyn court: “The defendant, Omar Willock, is charged with a hate crimes offense…At Willock’s arraignment last spring, Hynes told reporters that Willock ‘shouted anti-gay remarks’ at Roberto Duncanson, taunting him even as he tried to get away from Willock. Willock allegedly followed Duncanson, who’d been trying to avoid the confrontation, which had its roots in an verbal exchange earlier that same night, when angry words were exchanged between the two men. Willock had claimed that Duncanson stared at him in an unwanted manner, though the incident did not become violent. When Duncanson returned along the same route later that evening, Willock is alleged to have renewed his taunts. Witnesses told police the two engaged in a brief fistfight, culminating in a chase that ended with Duncanson’s stabbing death.”

road.jpg Gay sex expert Michael Alvear spent three months filming couples and analyzing the footage: “I don’t think that people are really that aware of their contributions to the breakdowns in a relationship, and the cameras are able to cut through all the false perceptions that they have about themselves. I’ve always believed this through writing and advising people about sex—the question, ‘What are you unaware of that, if you became aware of it, you could change and make the situation better?’ That’s what the cameras allowed people to do—become aware of the things they’re not aware of. It’s like a mirror that way.”

    I had no idea that 13-year-old girls read this site. Kinda makes sense though.

    The hilight of this year’s Hunky Jesus contest was Ana Matronic climbing out of the audience to spank one of the contestants… with a crucifix.

  4. Matt says

    I don’t care if Guv Crist is gay or straight, he’s been fair to us re his support of civil unions and other, more pressing issues down here in FL I mean, it’d be nice if he were gay or bi but he’s such a charming, old-fashioned sort of moderate that who he bones seems rather irrelevant. I do however wish he’d tell his staff to knock it off with the skirt-chasing stuff. It’s undignified and childish.

  5. says

    I enjoy their performance~~` I am so glad Ashton posted a profile with many photos at a celebrity site where he looks great. It is said he is interested in dating models. I hope he can find what he wants..

  6. Zeke says

    MATT, sorry to disagree with you but when Mr. Crist states his support for maintaining the ban on gays adopting so that my husband and my child cannot UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE be adopted by the only other parent he has ever known, even in the event of my death, he has NOT been fair to us on the more pressing issues.

    Taking children away from their parents simply because they happen to be gay and partnered to a biological parent who passes away is FAR from fair and ending a shameful dark ages policy that denies children good homes based on 1970’s Anita Bryant styled homophobic bigotry SHOULD be a pressing issue.

    The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence 29th anniversary was also celebrated this Easter. The Hunky Jesus was one even during an all-day celebration under sunny skies and warm weather in Dolores Park. Anything that tweaks the noses of the Vatican hypocrite closet cases has to be a good thing.

  8. says

    Thank you for that Pete. The Sisters’ anniversary is also just one of the times that we give out grants to community organizations. This year we gave out over $25,000 to 30 organizations, and raised an additional $5,000 that day. Coupled with performances by some amazing local talent and an incredibly beautiful day – we could not be more blessed.
