It's June. YAY!

Which means, Prides around the country will kick off starting this weekend.

Check out LA's Frontiers magazine.

The editors give a quick rundown of Pride events in major cities.

They even highlight some global destinations.

An excellent primer for the month ahead!!






We are horrible.

In May, we totally forgot a best friend's birthday on May 14th. Good thing he lives in Canada, we'll blame it on the mail and the card getting lost.


We forgot to post a Happy Birthday to Jane Wiedlin on May 20th! WTF, where were we on that one??

We're sorry, Jane. An apology is in order.

We are so throwing a heavy brick at our intern-- aiming for the skull, HA!-- for that fuck-up!! Oh stop, they like it when you do stuff like that, it makes them feel needed! He will definitely be needing a Band-Aid afterwards!! WORK!

So, since it is technically still May (at least, for a couple of hours), here is a shout out to our favorite rhythm guitarist:


Our Jane Drano!!

Jane Wiedlin is 53, May 20, 1958.

To the Go-Go-ette with the pixie- style and jump/dance way of playing guitar.






The story of America's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) community is the story of our fathers and sons, our mothers and daughters, and our friends and neighbors who continue the task of making our country a more perfect Union. It is a story about the struggle to realize the great American promise that all people can live with dignity and fairness under the law. Each June, we commemorate the courageous individuals who have fought to achieve this promise for LGBT Americans, and we rededicate ourselves to the pursuit of equal rights for all, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

Since taking office, my Administration has made significant progress towards achieving equality for LGBT Americans. Last December, I was proud to sign the repeal of the discriminatory "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy. With this repeal, gay and lesbian Americans will be able to serve openly in our Armed Forces for the first time in our Nation's history. Our national security will be strengthened and the heroic contributions these Americans make to our military, and have made throughout our history, will be fully recognized.

My Administration has also taken steps to eliminate discrimination against LGBT Americans in Federal housing programs and to give LGBT Americans the right to visit their loved ones in the hospital. We have made clear through executive branch nondiscrimination policies that discrimination on the basis of gender identity in the Federal workplace will not be tolerated. I have continued to nominate and appoint highly qualified, openly LGBT individuals to executive branch and judicial positions. Because we recognize that LGBT rights are human rights, my Administration stands with advocates of equality around the world in leading the fight against pernicious laws targeting LGBT persons and malicious attempts to exclude LGBT organizations from full participation in the international system. We led a global campaign to ensure "sexual orientation" was included in the United Nations resolution on extrajudicial execution -- the only United Nations resolution that specifically mentions LGBT people -- to send the unequivocal message that no matter where it occurs, state-sanctioned killing of gays and lesbians is indefensible. No one should be harmed because of who they are or who they love, and my Administration has mobilized unprecedented public commitments from countries around the world to join in the fight against hate and homophobia.

At home, we are working to address and eliminate violence against LGBT individuals through our enforcement and implementation of the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act. We are also working to reduce the threat of bullying against young people, including LGBT youth. My Administration is actively engaged with educators and community leaders across America to reduce violence and discrimination in schools. To help dispel the myth that bullying is a harmless or inevitable part of growing up, the First Lady and I hosted the first White House Conference on Bullying Prevention in March. Many senior Administration officials have also joined me in reaching out to LGBT youth who have been bullied by recording "It Gets Better" video messages to assure them they are not alone.

This month also marks the 30th anniversary of the emergence of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, which has had a profound impact on the LGBT community. Though we have made strides in combating this devastating disease, more work remains to be done, and I am committed to expanding access to HIV/AIDS prevention and care. Last year, I announced the first comprehensive National HIV/AIDS Strategy for the United States. This strategy focuses on combinations of evidence-based approaches to decrease new HIV infections in high risk communities, improve care for people living with HIV/AIDS, and reduce health disparities. My Administration also increased domestic HIV/AIDS funding to support the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program and HIV prevention, and to invest in HIV/AIDS-related research. However, government cannot take on this disease alone. This landmark anniversary is an opportunity for the LGBT community and allies to recommit to raising awareness about HIV/AIDS and continuing the fight against this deadly pandemic.

Every generation of Americans has brought our Nation closer to fulfilling its promise of equality. While progress has taken time, our achievements in advancing the rights of LGBT Americans remind us that history is on our side, and that the American people will never stop striving toward liberty and justice for all.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim June 2011 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month. I call upon the people of the United States to eliminate prejudice everywhere it exists, and to celebrate the great diversity of the American people.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this thirty-first day of May, in the year of our Lord two thousand eleven, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-fifth.



We posted about this in February.

Same Same is a great Australian website that features plenty of hot guy eye candy.

They will be airing an online reality series with 5 hot guys set up in the snow called Ski Camp.

Throw in jacuzzis, challenging ski competitions and sexy reality TV ensues.....

It is based on Same Same's popular 2010 Surf Camp (where have we been?), same concept but under the glorious Ozzie sun.


Welcome to the year 2012!!!

Australia yanks their Rip and Roll HIV prevention campaign all because of Christian complaints.

Can we complain to Oz that they are Christian? Fucking religious bigots BARF! Such hypocrites...

Adshel, the company that provides advertising for Brisbane's bus shelters; Goa Billboards; and the Advertising Standards Bureau were targeted in an orchestrated campaign by the Australian Christian Lobby (ACL). Healthy Communities executive director Paul Martin said it was extremely disheartening that Adshel had buckled. "Those of us who have been around fighting HIV in Queensland for a while will remember this kind of reaction from days gone by," he told AAP. "We certainly don't expect it in 2011."

ACL was trying to have gay people "erased from the public sphere", Mr Martin said. "It's an extreme minority of people who are very well organised and are able to launch this kind of action," he said. "The vast majority of Queenslanders support gay and lesbian rights." ACL Queensland director Wendy Francis said she objected to the sexual nature of the ads, not the fact the couple pictured were gay. Ms Francis was last year forced to apologise publicly after a Tweet likening gay marriage to legalising child abuse.

The Advocate reports:

[Australian Christian Lobby] Queensland executive director Wendy Francis said she objected to the sexual nature of the ad, not the gay identity of the men pictured. Last year, she ran for senate as a Family First candidate and was forced to apologize for a tweet that compared granting marriage rights for same-sex couples to allowing child abuse.

"If a player in the locker room came out, it would come and go quickly, too. I really don’t think it’s a big issue anymore.....I think it would be surprisingly accepted, and a shorter shelf life than maybe we would imagine. I think the time has come when it should happen soon."

---NBAer Steve Nash confesses to The New York Times in a Q&A.


The GROSSNESS that is the family research council professes to be a loving, "pro-family" group. NOT!

This cleverly edited reel proves otherwise!!

These asswipes tony perkins and peter sprigg manifest lies, false claims and misinformation and cloak it as preaching "love" and "morals" under the group: family research council. We don't capitalize for scum--they're not worth the effort...

MAKE NO MISTAKE: This group is a HATE group!!


Sexy Seth Meyers lends his adorable face for some promo shots of the upcoming ESPY awards.

Again, Meyers will have hosting duties for the event.

Ryan Reynold covers the latest issue of DETAILS.

How is it possible that RyRy gets better looking with each passing day?

Aggregate is a word Reynolds likes to use to describe his non-meteoric rise to the top of the Hollywood call sheet. It's a fair description of how he got here. Step one: Come out of nowhere (which is to say, Canada) and hustle your way into TV movies and a kids' series despite discouragement from your working-class Vancouver family. Step two: Make the jump to the big screen (1993's Ordinary Magic—he played Ganesh, a boy raised in India sent to live with family in Ontario. Sample dialogue: "They are not so very different, basketball and yoga"). Step three: Drive to L.A. from Vancouver "on the whimmiest of whims" in 1995 with an aspiring-actor friend and, after a few years, land a part on a sitcom (Two Guys and a Girl). And here's where the steps pile up and blend together, until finally, two decades later, you're People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive and the CGI-swaddled flying green lead of a summer blockbuster.

It also didn't hurt being engaged to a musical zeitgeist from the Nineties : Alanis Morissette.

These actors make their exodus stories to Hollywood sound like such a hardship....

Hello? Alanis didn't open a ton of doors for you or introduce you to the "right" people??

For some, it is a day of sidewalks and perfecting those tricked out moves.

Go ahead and skate the day away!


A hard piece of wood.

Wrangling the uncontrollable tide.

What is more visceral than time at the beach.

The smell of salty air.

All the hot lads barely dressed.

A walk on the dunes to see what is on the other side.

It is a sensory overload!!

What is more fun than splashing around poolside.

Watching the clouds on a float.

Relaxing in the cool water.

Catching the rays and working on that requisite summer tan.
