Palatial Gay Fantasia: Where Simon Doonan lives. "Doonan’s picaresque journey from ration books in Reading, England, to palatial gay fantasia is the subject of the British television show 'Beautiful People,' which was about to make its American début, on the Logo network. The show is adapted from Doonan’s memoir 'Nasty: My Family and Other Glamorous Varmints.' 'When the book was optioned, everyone thought I’d start flying to work in a mink-lined helicopter,' Doonan said. In reality, his compensation was a bit more modest; he wouldn’t say how much he was paid, but allowed that it was 'better than a poke in the eye with a dirty stick.'"

Houston Chronicle: Immigration law divides gay couples. "But the bill is facing heated opposition by anti-immigration advocates, who say it could potentially lead to fraud. A strong voice in the pro-immigrant movement, the Catholic Church, also has taken a stand against the bill, based on the belief that marriage is strictly between a man and a woman, said Kevin Appleby, migration policy director for U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops."

Homophobic bullying"widespread" in Ireland, says Minister for Children: "Speaking at the launch of a report on teenage mental health this morning, the Minister said young people should be educated about the serious dangers of homophobic bullying. And he said, it was particularly worrying to hear that some young people had experienced homophobic bullying by teachers."

'Gay panic' in Connecticut leads to brutal murder: "In a seven-page confession to police released Friday, O'Brien-Veader painted a disturbing picture of a savage killing that was preceded by a brutal beating all intended to make Olivera suffer. The catalyst for the slaying appears to be that O'Brien-Veader was enraged because he thought Olivera was a homosexual and had performed a sex act on him while the two had slept in the same bed in an abandoned factory at 835 South Main St."

  1. Aw, man, those pictures of Willis are just so sad. He's still in good shape, but has he no taste at all?

  2. Correctly (for those pedants) Cumming was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (hence OBE), which ranks fourth in seniority within the Order. The others are GBE (Knight Grand Cross of the Order), KBE (Knight), CBE (Commander) and, most junior, MBE (Member of the Order). OBE is a considerable honour, coming with a hefty solid gold medal and an letter from HMQ.
    Well done him!

  5. When is 'Gay Panic' going to be thrown out as a defense? I don't like beer, so can I beat someone to death if they offer me one?

  6. James Franco intrigues me with his heavy involvement in the queer arts.

  7. I posted a few comments at the Houston Chronicle when I was up in the middle of the night. The level of homophobia from the other posters was through the roof. Most of them were too stupid to understand that gay couples weren't given the same opportunity to sponsor their partners. Those that did understand, just wanted the guy living in Houston to move to Canada. Apparently having that one gay man here was destroying their perfect lives.

  8. I'm surprised that Towleroad hasn't posted about Dustin Lance Black's (unprotected) sex photos/tape.

  9. Alright, so i don't know the details of the "gay panic" story, but if the accusation of rape--lets not parse words; that's what unconsented sex is called--then I don't see how this is the same as gay panic. I think that should be reserved for cases in which rape was not a part of the story.

  10. Wow. Is this site hypocritical. Nudie pictures of soccer players getting massaged and freeballing! Eric Balfour wrestling! But no Dustin Lance Black sex pics - even though it's more than newsworthy. The first EVER gay-celeb sex video...and Towleroad is silent?? Where are the pics? Maybe if some straight soccer player were showing wood you'd be more interested. I'm ashamed of this site's morally queasy double-standard.

  11. Alan, you want to see those pics, you know where to find them.

  12. @ Crispy

    It seems you don't know everything since you insisted that Lafayette would not be returning with the new season of True Blood.

    Just wanted to point that out.
