Washington Post on the Robert Wone murder case: "So began a real-life parlor mystery -- an unsolved killing and alleged coverup in the guest room of an elegant home in the heart of Washington's gay community, with a trio of seemingly unlikely suspects: a self-described "polyamorous family" of three men. The bizarre murder that evening of a young Ivy League lawyer named Robert Wone, still grist for gossip and conjecture on the city's gay blogosphere, has vexed police and prosecutors since the 911 call just before midnight Aug. 2, 2006." 


THIS was a laugh-and-a-half last night for its pure pathetic-ness.

Band of Thebes looks at the new exhibition at the New York Public Library: 1969: The Year of Gay Liberation.

Now for the 40th anniversary, we get half the hallway on the third floor."

  1. "How to come out on Facebook" was a good article but it was originally written by Chicago's RedEye writer Jason Steele for Boy on Boystown back in January.

  2. Andy - Where are the questions about the new nominee for Secretary of the Army's sexuality. John is my local rep, and it is pretty common knowledge among many that he is not a heterosexual. I was a little surprised that he was not profiled in "Outrage". Thom

  3. I'm sure the new Secretary of the Army will defend DADT. Obama wouldn't have appointed him otherwise.

  4. We have a little hypocrisy here - Million "Fag" March?

    We condemn others for using the word 'faggot' but then we use the word 'fag' (a derivative of faggot). When we use it, is it considered a term of endearment, where if straights use it, it's derogatory?

  5. CB, this isn't exactly the first time that a minority group has gotten away with using terms for each other that people outside that group would be castigated for.

    The Robert Wone murder is really disturbing and odd. Thanks for the updates. I have to wonder if the truth will ever come out. I hate to say it, but there are more than a few doubts about the three accused gay men, or at least one or two of them. The motive isn't 100% clear (but it could be pretty clear), but the opportunity and means are. Then again, that three such bright men would advertise their proclivities online and not expect those to be raised in a murder case is also bizarre.

  6. Forget my comments about the Wone case. There are more holes in that story than in cheesecloth. Could be just as likely that someone left the house after the murder, but it seems like the investigators screwed this case up every way possible.

  7. Baron Cohen, Eminem and MTV have yet to comment on it.

  8. is it just me or does it look like Jesus has two penises? No wonder he's with her.

  9. Hey guys. I was on scene at the beaching of the 55 pilot whales in South Africa. It was madness. Any whales that we were able to return to the water and guide back out invariably swam back into the beach. It was very sad.

    I did a blog post about it, if anyone wants to see photos or hear more detail about what happened:

  10. re Facebook; While it may solve some social gaffs it is still grounds for firing to be gay openly in many places here in the gay old US of A. If you think HR people don't check these social networking sites before offering you a job you are very much mistaken.I would be personally very uncomfortable to post my stats so openly. You may never know why you didn't get that job you needed.

  11. I hope they fry those three fuckers in the Wone case. Can you make up any more of a pathetic story? And don't even get me started on that fake-ass 911 dialogue.
