David Beckham the new face of Calvin Klein? Source: “We have made a bid. After all, we know he wears two pairs a day as we send them to him. He wants to do a shoot and now it’s just finding the time to tie up all the loose ends.”
A 20-year-old UK student has lost his eye in a vicious anti-gay attack in Londonderry. MP Mark Durkan said the attack “was a savage assault on a completely innocent young man. This attack was fuelled by a sickening homophobia and must be met with vocal and outright rejection, both in Derry and throughout our wider society.” There have been a recent series of anti-gay incidents in that city.
Cayman Islands set to bash gay cruise: “God loves you but we do not welcome gays to this Island.”
Senator Sam Brownback has clarified remarks he made in a recent issue of Rolling Stone. The Republican Senator, referring to countries like Sweden that allow gay marriage and civil unions, said “You’ll know them by their fruits,” a quote from Matthew 7:19. Many took it to mean that Brownback was using “fruits” as a derogatory term for gays.
Yesterday, Brownback clarified the comments: “While this biblical passage was pertinent to our overall conversation about faith and deeds, it apparently led the writer to believe I was making a joke. I was not and would never do so with such a personal and sensitive issue.” Still, some weren’t impressed. A spokesman for the HRC said, “It’s nice to know that Senator Brownback doesn’t resort to name-calling from the 1970s, but unfortunately his anti-gay agenda continues to speak for itself.”
