The researchers cross-checked their results with other royal records. They found that the average lifespan of a Korean eunuch was about 70 years, 14 to 19 years higher than non-castrated men of similar social standing."

RoadGay Germans make presence known at Oktoberfest: “No one would want to see Oktoberfest become officially political, but just the fact that gays and lesbians can go there in lederhosen, can hold hands and kiss, does have political meaning,” says Thomas Niederbühl, a longtime Munich city council member and a member of the local Pink List gay rights party. “We are playing more of a role in German society. By being at Oktoberfest, people recognize that we are no longer some small group on the fringes of everyday life.”

  1. so Jan Mickelson not only is a hateful bigot but doesn't know what irony is either?

  2. No surprise at the Dublin party......things are usually quite lively at 4.00 am.

  3. Oh! poor Texans, when will you understand that it's the time when we're even reaching the end of the year 2012.

  4. Daniel Radcliffe is a Giants fan? My heart just sank.

    PS: Who doesn't love shirtless friendship time.

  5. So even the half-Jewish Englishman is enjoying the company of Dublin lads, when most NYC gays would see them dead ? (Go Daniel !)

  6. Mars looks so sexy. So metallic.

  7. I hope that there isn't anything untoward in that trophy that Mr. Radcliffe is drinking out of. He's a recovering alcoholic...

  8. Gay Oktoberfest isn't only for Germans. Gay US GIs stationed in Germany attend en masse.

    Here's last year's invitation:

  9. Radcliff looks tiny next to those big footballers...does the world need more of those untalented Smith creatures?

  10. According to the internet, Danial Radcliffe is 5'5". I figured either he was short or that blond guy was really really tall.

    If you were Jan Mickelson, wouldn't it tell you something that you agree with Ahmadinejad? That isn't "irony" it's a wake-up call!

    Posted by: Caliban | Sep 26, 2012 5:53:06 PM

  11. So--Jan Mickelson: You agree with Ahmadinejad; so does that mean you don't believe there are any gay people in Iran?

  12. It's a shame that you buried the Lady Gaga item in the news section, but thought a piece about a flying squirrel was deserving of its own post. It's also sad that you linked to a poor piece covering what Gaga did and the reaction.

    A much better piece was posted on, of all places, Forbes:

  13. I thought Daniel Radcliffe was off the sauce. He looks pretty wazzled in these pics.

  14. Here's a tip from someone who KNOWS: If you meet a big friendly Irish Gaelic Football team and they invite you out to drink with them you should not REFUSE because you'll have more fun than you ever imagined possible, you'll be charmed by their wit, and you may even get laid. Thank me later.

  16. The DC police are hiding something and we all know what it is, the truth about what happened.

  17. I live just outside of McKinney. Believe me when I say it is steers, queers, and god. And, just a few miles north of McKinney is the lovely little burb of Anna...which got its name...according to the local folks...from an acronym. Ain't No "N" Allowed.

    That sign was just flash in the pan to what is really said ...

  18. Tons of American gays go to Oktoberfest every year. There is always a large presence. Why is this surprising?

  19. "Doctors would not recommend becoming a eunuch, even though they live way longer"

    And yet, some doctors still recommend infant circumcision, even though it does nothing to extend men's lives.
