road.jpg STUDY: Circumcision makes little difference against HIV protection in gay sex. “The study’s authors wrote that circumcision appears to provide ‘not statistically significant’ protection from HIV in men who engage in anal sex with other men. The researchers said however that more research may be necessary to quantify the amount of protection — or lack thereof — provided by circumcision.”

Obama spoke mostly about his admiration for Al and Tipper Gore in his four-minute speech to guests who had paid at least $2,500 each to attend. ‘One simple commitment and pledge that I’ll make to you: That should we have the great honor of serving as president and first lady, that these are a couple of people we will be continuing to consult,’ Obama said of the former Democratic vice president.”

Gayuk_minogueroad.jpg Old photos have surfaced of the first Mr. Gay UK Anthony Morley, who I reported back in May had killed his lover and possibly eaten him. Yesterday I mentioned that the trial over the grisly murder had begun. Here’s a shot of Morley posing the night of his Mr. Gay UK win, with Dannii Minogue.

road.jpg Two transexuals beaten and raped in Minsk, Belarus: “After clearly enjoying the humiliation they put the transsexual men through, the bullies threw them naked and beaten to the staircase; their belongings followed closely. The neighbours who came out at the noise just laughed with what happened and called the guys «jerks», «faggots» and basically used all the foul language at them. The pair of raped and beaten men, who wish to change sex, did not revert to the local police because of the fear that the law enforcement officials would adequately respond to the situation.”

    The “Bruno” pranks are tiresome. “Borat” was funny, but Cohen clearly has one specific shtick that he’s running into the ground. Meh.

  2. Antaeus says

    Leave Vova alone. He’s been great in restoring Russia to health, which is his great mission. The person of V. Putin should not be conflated with his nation’s lingering social conservatism.

    It is clearly that Madonna will not support the Gay Community in regards to Prop 8~ We pretty much funded her career and the fact that she is nowhere to be seen during this very important time for our Community is really sad and dissapointing!

    Putin is not the President of Russia anymore, he’s “only” Prime Minister (of course his macho act is still ridiculous, though).

  5. says

    Putin is definitely to be conflated with his nation’s lingering conservatism. The turn backwards coincided with his accession to power, and while Luzhkov has been more actively anti-gay, Putin has done nothing to stop it.

    This past weekend authorities in St. Petersburg stopped the country’s first gay/lesbian film festival: supposedly fire inspectors declared the two clubs unsafe. Anyone who knows Russia’s record on fire safety realizes that having fire inspectors close the only two clubs to host a gay film fest is no coincidence.

    Madonna is a tired old hag that used gays and then dumped us when Feminem started rapping about murdering us. She couldn’t wait to defend his “right” to bash us. She and Elton Joan both are much more interested in using us then spending one nickle helping us win our rights. So they can both go fuck Eminem.

  7. Joey says

    Madonna?! Who cares? Isn’t she older than McCain? I hate Sarah Palin, but I’d rather hang out with Palin than that old Crone!

  8. shane says

    Sticky & Sweet is a big yawn compared to Confessions. During a lot of the show people were just watching her – no clapping or anything. And the beyotch had pitch and memory problems.
    The whole thing had a very “commercial” feel to it – which is no surprise since she sold out!

  9. shane says

    Uh, admitting that more research is needed negates the determination that circumcision doesn’t help. Anyone who took a high school science class should know that about research conclusion.

  10. Antaeus says

    Kevin, the Sarajevo gay film festival was shut down by the Muslim-Croat Federation’s mullahs, who apparently are allowed to set policy. We bombed (Russian-allied)Serbs on their behalf, don’t you know? Where is the obsessive mockery of a single person, Haris Siladzic, for instance, or the reduction of that entire statelet into some caricaturized hate figure?
    By taking cheap shots at Putin, whose leadership was favorably assessed by greats such as the late Solzhenitsyn, you unwittingly play into dangerous Cold War revivalism, as has the website owner. Russia is too vast and complicated to be judged by single-issue criteria. You’re little different from “feminists” who did not even know burqas existed until we tried to level the Himalayas in Afghanistan. Then they got on board – for war!
    Save your activist fire for Utah or Prop. 8. or other things that affect us directly and let Russian gays sort out matters in their own homeland. How would you like hostility to be generated in foreign lands against the United States by conflating it with George Bush? You’d probably choke on your grapenuts.
