Gay Moroccan author Abdellah Taia tells all: "Taia has defied Moroccan society's don't-ask, don't-tell attitude toward homosexuality — and prison sentences that are still on the books in the North African kingdom — to write five autobiographical novels about growing up poor and gay in the northern coastal city of Sale. The novels, peppered with sexually explicit passages, have catapulted him to fame in his native country and made him the de-facto poster child of its budding gay rights movement."

8: The Mormon Proposition. An interview with director Reed Cowan: "Truthfully, this film started out as an exposé on the problems of gay teen homelessness in Utah's 'Zion' and an examination about WHY otherwise loving parents would kick their kids out on to the streets just because their kids are gay.  But as the weeks and months unfolded in our project, I began seeing that history demanded our project be larger in scope.  Slowly, but with great force, our focus shifted to what I believe is the 'touchstone' of Mormon ideology regarding homosexuality...and that is exclusively Mormon efforts to get PROP 8 on the ballot in California and see its passage.  It's the case against Mormons and what I believe has been a decades long work to damage gay people and their causes.

  2. I never would have thought Robert Pattinson looked that good with a shirt off. I figured he'd be very, very normal in that department... but he did have a little bit of a six pack going on. Too bad his vampire character has to be so pasty white though!

  3. Wow. I just read the complete interview with Abdellah Taia @


    I can see from his perspective now, and he appears quite brilliant, hopeful, and well-adjusted.

  5. California has been getting a lot of unfair broadbrushing because of Prop H8TE, and St. Judy knows that sometimes it seems there are almost as many gays in San Francisco setting us back as moving us forward [like failing to feature resident icons & partners for over half-a-century Phyllis Lyon & Del Martin in anti 8 ads]... but is there any other city in the country [world?] that can claim a police force of not just the "200 openly gay and lesbian officers" in SF mentioned in the linked article [thanks, Andy!], but such a high percentage of the total on their forces? NYC? Boston?

    And this line is both moving and hilarious and "Only in San Francisco" at the same time:

    "At one point, two juvenile protesters [of the Court's P8 decision] determined to be jailed for their principles were arrested by police officers who called their parents first to make sure that was OK."

    Let it be, let it be!

  9. That isnt the first link concerning whales, animals, or science on this site. I appreciate it, expand your mind. jeez. I'm more upset that Levi's is only rolling out the White Knot campaign in 4 cities. That's a bit lame. I'm not mad at them and I think it's great what there doing. Just wish it was a bit more wide spread. White ribbon can't be that expensive.
