I'M COMING OUT



"I'm Coming Out" is a hit single released by Motown singer Diana Ross in 1980, written and produced by Chic members Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers for her album diana (1980).
In 1979, Ross commissioned Chic founders Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards to create material for a new album, following the success of her final Ashford & Simpson-composed and produced LP, The Boss after taking her daughters to see the band in concert. Rodgers got the idea for "I'm Coming Out" after noticing three different drag queens dressed as Diana Ross at a New York club called the GG Barnum Room. The lyrics hold an additional meaning to Ross, as she was leaving Motown Records and "coming out" from under the thumb of Berry Gordy.[1]

OLDIE, BUT GOODIE: LET'S TALK GENDER (JUST THOUGHT I'D SAY)


While many people, whether HOMOSEXUAL, HETEROSEXUAL or BISEXUAL, aspire to intimate and sexual relations based on mutual love and emotional support I cannot help but wonder if GENDER plays a role in how AND who we LOVE. Both today, and throughout the whole process of life WE MEN and WOMEN will continue to challenge traditional views of GENDER ROLES, which reflect AND reinforce the oppression AND distorts the truth about who we are. The old traditional GENDER ROLES, which have existed for thousands of years, has been broken AND transformed. People will no longer have to put up with the ridiculous and unscientific notions that women who are aggressive, independent, and outspoken, or athletic are TOO MASCULINE; or that men who aspire to be creative, sensitive or nurturing are EFFEMINATE. These qualities in human beings should be appreciated and fostered between both sexes, and children growing up will not have to feel that they do not fit into gender definitions that are already archaic and objectively a hindrance to their development.

THE HYPER MASCULINE MAN & HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH WOMEN...



For generations, men have been told that a "real man" is the strong, yet silent type who keeps all of their emotions in check. A "real man" doesn't cry, need therapy or ask for help and above ALL else a "real man" keeps his women in check.


Well this thought came to the other day as I was sitting in my barber’s chair having a conversation. I asked him how are things with him and his now pregnant girlfriend, he said okay with a smile [a devilish smile]. He then told me that he came home after 1am the other night and met her packing up her stuff because she said he isn’t treating her right [you know the song n’ dance].



REVIEW OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN VAMPIRE HUNTER




About The Movie: 

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is a 2012 American action fantasy horror film based on the 2010 mashup novel of the same name. The film was directed and co-produced by Timur Bekmambetov, along with Tim Burton. The novel's author, Seth Grahame-Smith, wrote the adapted screenplay. The real-life figure Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States(1861–1865), is portrayed in the novel and the film as having a secret identity as a vampire hunter. Lincoln first began his hunting expeditions because, as a boy, he saw those suckers go after slaves. (They're all white, these vampires.) When he intervened to save a little black friend, they went after his own mother. And when he became a man — the adult Lincoln is played by Benjamin Walker with a look of perpetually stricken self-effacement — he committed himself to the eradication of the infernal species, under the tutelage of a rogue good vampire named Henry Sturgess.

NATIONAL HIV TESTING DAY: TAKE THE TEST, TAKE CONTROL


Today marks the 19th year NHTD and there is more reason than ever to get tested. If you negative, you can work to stay negative. If you test positive, you can work to stay healthy and protect yourself and others.



Today the end of the epidemic really is in sight. We know now that people receiving "effective" treatment with drug cocktails - fully suppressing viral replication - aren't just living longer. They also have radically less risk of sharing their infections with others. In theory, we can test and treat our way out of this!

But today TOO many persons are living with HIV today don't know it. We have to reach them! NHTD is more important than ever - the "silent infected" and everyone living in hot spots of undetected and untreated HIV need to know their status


We lost SO many loved ones to this epidemic! We owe it to them to make things change and the first step is to know your HIV status.

CATERING & SPOILING: ¿IS THERE A THIN LINE?





How do you know when you are crossing the line of catering to your man to spoiling him? It can be a difficult line to see at times, but once it is crossed we wish we could go back to the other side.


Catering to your man is something that should be done on occasion or just when you feel like doing something special for him. Spoiling is when he receives that “king” treatment every day to the point that he waits for you to put out his meals for him because he has never had to do that himself. The sad thing is that a man that is spoiled doesn’t necessarily mean that he is lazy, but rather this is the lifestyle that YOU have gotten him used to. You know what I mean, making sure there is always cooked food waiting on the stove, preparing his plate, bringing it to him along with anything else he needs to enjoy his food, making sure the place is spic and span, giving him a massage as you ask him about his day, always doing the dishes and taking up his plate after he is done and still walk around looking sexy. SMH and the one time you don’t do these things he looks at you like you lost your mind or, better yet, he will just sit there and wait for you to do all the things he is accustomed to.


When our men are spoiled it is no one’s fault but our own. I do believe in treating my man as a king as long as he treats me like a king in return. The catering treatment has to go both ways and when it doesn’t it should be addressed.


There is a reason some men have to hold back from putting everything on display when in a relationship. You start off slow with a meal here and there, a massage sometimes, walking around in something sexy at other times so that he recognizes this as a “treat” rather than something you are required to do. You have to make sure he understands that he still has to pull his weight.


Don’t get me wrong, I love catering to my man, but the absolute best is when he returns the gesture. There is nothing like coming home to a clean house, food cooked and your man rubbing or kissing your feet just to show how much he appreciates you and all that you do.


Let your man know that you do what you do out of your love for him and that is it NOT an obligation. I notice that with some couples there is a complaint that treating the other like a “king” has become a chore and something he doesn't enjoy anymore because it is EXPECTED more than APPRECIATED.


Basically, always make sure to draw that line between catering and spoiling whether you are in a fresh relationship or in something more serious. Treat him like a king as long as he treats you like a king.

(UN) HAPPY HOUR: STRAIGHT BARTENDERS IN GAY BARS


We've all been here before...

You walk into your favorite bar and notice a new bartender. He’s a handsome fella with dark hair, kind eyes and a bright smile. You sit down, he greets you, lays a napkin on the bar and asks what you’re having.

You order a vodka cranberry. He mixes the cocktail, drops a lime in, and places it on the napkin. It’s happy hour, so it only costs you five dollars. You give him six, he thanks you for the tip, and you strike up a conversation.

He may or may not be flirting, but he certainly knows how to use those kind eyes and that bright smile. You’re single and always open to making new friends, meeting the next great love of your life or securing a hot piece of tail, so you start engaging with said bartender.

Then he mentions his girlfriend. You feel confused, stupid, angry— but not too angry because, though apparently straight, he’s still cute.

But wait. You’re in a gay bar. Why would a straight guy want to work in a gay bar?

TRUE BLOOD: SEASON 5, EPISODE 3 - WHATEVER I AM, YOU MADE ME


When you look at this hour on paper, so muchhappened. And yet, it still feels like we're ramping up and waiting for the action to truly begin. Maybe if we would have seen more of Bill's and Eric's sex scenes with Salome, I'd have felt like we got more bang for our buck. Let's dig in...

G.L.B.T. THEMED BOOKS: STAYING ALIVE: THE INVENTION OF SAFE SEX


While the practice of “safe sex” has become an American habit over the past twenty years, few are familiar with its controversial origins and fascinating social history. Stayin' Alive is the story of how reaching for a condom became as automatic as buckling a seat belt, a story compellingly and frankly recounted by activist and journalist Richard Berkowitz who arrived on the frontlines in the war on AIDS in 1982 and has been writing about it ever since. Berkowitz takes the reader on a graphic but moving account of his personal sexual journey coming out amid the sexual abandon of the 1970s and waking up to horror of AIDS in the 1980s. For younger readers with no first-hand experience of what it was like living through the erotic exuberance of the sexual revolution nor the grisly aftermath, the author offers a vivid portrayal that puts the invention of safe sex into fresh, compelling context for a new generation.“Safe sex” was born out of the tireless crusading, politicking, and advocacy of an unlikely trio whose lives revolved around sex and the consequences of sex: the author, the author, the AIDS researcher and physician Joseph Sonnabend, and the late author, activist and singer Michael Callen. Berkowitz recounts how their work found a way to enable a generation of gay men and sexually adventurous heterosexuals to continue celebrating their sexuality without risking their lives or the lives of their partners - in two words, “safe sex.”

¡IT'S ALL EQUAL!



Homophobia

=
 Racism
=
Sexism

=

Class-ism
=
Stupidity

¿RIGHT?

NEVER FORGET...




The homosexual should never forget that we are/were a captive people. This does not mean we are a defeated people. You're not defeated until you have given in to the enemy. Giving in means giving the enemy what he wants. Of course, the first thing they want us to do is to stop resisting and fighting back. The second thing they want is for us to stop being our true homosexual selves and to become a sissy, which means to accept the role they are most comfortable with.
