Spotted, Justin Bieber and Chris Brown in the first flush of their blossoming bromance and posted on Instagram. Looks like Bieber isn’t a belieber that the first set of boos will be the last. As I look at them I can’t help but wonder, why? Don’t they know that two bottoms don’t make a top?? At least we know Biebs is down with the swirl stemming from the magical night in the back of Usher’s tour bus.
Sometimes you have to feed your cravings and why not indulge with brazilian model Miro Moreira? With all the pleasure and none of the fat this eye candy business is quite fulfilling, just don’t expect it to fill you up. It’s the oldest story. Moreira says that he was called “ugly duckling” because he wore braces, has acne and was too skinny. As we can tell this model has shed his ugly duckling stage and emerged a swan. And by shedding I mean he is naked, a lot. #UrWelcome
Welcome to New York City who’s signature fruit is always clad and in Gucci and our signature sound is that of a jackhammer outside our apartment at 5 AM. It’s been a rough year in this city hurricanes, health scares the return of harem pants, but Spring has sprung finally!! Let’s all get out tank tops and cut off denim shorts out of storage and wave hello to Spring, who has just decided to grace us with it’s presence just in time for Summer. Ah yes, Spring just another hot air blowing queen who is always running late and never comes at the right time. #RUDE
When is a compliment not a compliment? Never, a compliment IS a compliment. Have you ever noticed that when given a compliment that we immediately switch from mildly amused to uncomfortable and then self deprecation? In New York City it is especially hard to give or receive a compliment when the first thing you are doing is doubting everything in your head and then immediately concluding that the person giving the compliment is trying to mount you like a steed so you can swing on it until dawn. But enough about last Friday night.
Talking with a friend they were shocked to discover that their charms were not welcomed at bars when complimenting someone, they have an accent so let the perplex expression begin once your botox wears off. In their native land when he is giving a compliment they smile, giggle and say thank here we side eye, sneer and tell you where you can shove that compliment. It appears we have become a society that is so jaded that we can’t accept a harmless compliment from someone, we immediately jump the most logical conclusion that they want something, usually sex. We all can’t be a Victoria Secret models so when we get a compliment we refuse to believe that it is aimed at us thinking we are too short, too fat too poor, I don’t but I am sure a lot of people do. Here’s Victoria’s little secret, she takes the damn compliment. There will come a time in your life when the compliments come less frequently than subways after midnight, so start stock piling. You think it’s never going to happen to you but one day you wake and bam you’re thirty, so embrace your youth and pray that Cher keeps up her pioneering efforts to turn back time.

Angelina Jolie may have taken preventative measures when she underwent a double mastectomy to help prevent herself from getting breast cancer but the story doesn’t end there. It is also being reported that Angelina will undergo a hysterectomy to make sure there is slim to NO chance that she will develop cancer. Scary but true. Well she has the man, the money and the family guess she doesn’t need the equipment for anything, wishing her nothing but the best. Let’s hope when they raid her tomb there aren’t any mistakes.
I always found it funny that so many people are so concerned with the sexual lives of celebrities. I guess a peek into their private life is all that we crave, explains the popularity of celebrity sex tapes. However when you’re celebrity you live your life out loud and proud, but what if your pride is called into question? What if you can only live your life out loud but your pride has to ride in coach with a Mets cap and sunglasses? What are they hiding and why do we feel the need to “out” celebrities and their secrets ??
While some good may come from an out and proud celebrity, forcing someone out of the closet is not only damaging but hypocritical. We preach about caring and understanding and equality but feel that things must be done out way or no way at all. Celebrities are people too and they do not owe us, as people, anything. An actor, celebrity or athlete is there to entertain us, that is it, a window into their private lives is not should not be expected. Sure the spotlight is thrust upon them and their private life and it is obvious that things will be made very public, but does that really mean we feel entitled to know their inner most secrets? With more celebrities exploding out of the closet glitter cape and mascara in place, there is talks that they have a platform to finally bring attention to the importance of equality. This I can stand behind, however when did it become a celebrities job? Although they have this amazing platform to stand on, what if they don’t want to be the face of a cause. What if by chance this celebrity isn’t sure of how to go about bringing about a positive spin or are dealing with their own demons could forcing them on this platform cause more damage than good ?
With the rise of teenage suicides you would think the public, gay and straight, would take a step back realize that they are wrong and help promote a healthy understanding of what is REALLY happening and the steps we are taking to make it better. So far we are condemning people for not doing everything the way we think it should be done causing a rift in what is perceived as right or wrong, when it reality there is no right or wrong when it comes to doing something that helps you accept who you are. The more people come out the more we struggle for equality the more vicious people are becoming. Sure gay people have always been cunning but when it starts affecting me ,taking me away from the all important discussion of Mariah Carey versus Nicki Minaj the vaseline, sneakers and straight razors make an appearance, and things are about to get real, watch what happens when people stop being polite and start stomping some ass. For years we have chuckled at Perez Hilton and then condemned him as he tried to out gay celebrities, yet as the public we are doing the same thing, true on a much smaller scale but are still no better. You cannot condemn a person for doing something that you yourself have done and are continuing to do, whether it is gossiping about the next big gay actor or justifying mixing cheetah print and stripes, we have to start living our lives the best way we can that is best for us as individuals.
In the end it is the choice of the individual who they invite into their world of rainbows, unicorns and overly buff men in speedos who are oiled up. We shouldn’t condemn them for this but celebrate the fact that they came out, finally. The struggle is admitting it to yourself and we all know that we come out when we feel ready, doing anything before you’re ready leads to bigger problems and even more confusion. Look what happens when God forgets to fully cook a male version of Ellen Degeneres, now we are stuck with Justin Bieber and that gum is never coming off the bottom of our shoe. It’s called follow through people. Shooting star, the more you know.

It’s that time again when those fighting for equal rights must educate the masses. Normally I would hand them a copy of To Wong Foo fire up the hibachi and sit back, relax and watch the glow of confusion cover their face like fluids on a Monica Lewinsky dress. With this generation the symbolism would be lost. T hat would be like telling them that some things are meant to be private and shouldn’t be Instagrammed, Facebooked or Tweeted, in one ear Tweeted out the other.
As we continue along this road of equal rights there is a group of people who don’t appear to get as much attention as the mainstream gays, transgenders. Not only are they not given as much public love as the other gays they are usually misidentified. Which just means they never listened to Dr. Frank N. Furter from Rocky Horror. No matter how much we appear as a unified front there are disconnects. Sure they are part of the LGBT community but the disconnect seems to come from how they identify themselves causing confusion even in the gay community. The problem I feel stems from the fact that when you are part of the trans community you don’t IMMEDIATELY identify as gay or straight because all you’re doing is trying to make the inside and outside meet a happy medium. Sadly outside forces can make this at times impossible from both sides of the spectrum, and I can imagine the turmoil from within this group. People can be too quick to judge or try to fit a square peg into a round hole, so to speak, but it’s not that simple. Once again this isn’t a choice to be this way it is how you are born. The only choice you have is how you decide to express yourself and when you will make things right for yourself. What’s the big deal anyway? Just another pretty person out on the streets that you will be rubber necking and doing a double take. When these girls strut you don’t know if they are men, women or born that way so take it at face value, while they serve face kiddies. Just remember no bashing until you have had to grapple with enough fishing line and vaseline to squeeze into a corset, slide your feet into 7 inch stilettos two sizes too small and put on a lacefront on the A train while doing eyeliner. Until then love the art and watch the show, as always it’s going to be a good one.
Remember in an unfeeling world you have to make your own armor, throw it on and serve runway realness on Madison Avenue. Lucky for the LGBT community our armor is covered in sequins and our combat boots are from Gucci, no one said we had to fight in Birksenstocks and overalls, no offense. We are fighting this war from the trenches which means an updated ensemble is needed, I was thinking shorts. See you on the front lines.

Liza Minnelli is down with the gays. She is so down with the gays she officiated the gay marriage in Sex and the City 2 and posed for a NO H8 photo shoot. And if you weren’t moved a little bit by her rousing rendition of Single Ladies in Sex and the City 2, which was the only tolerable thing about that stillborn idea, then you must turn in your gay card and Prada mules at once. So let us bask in the light shining from her NO H8 campaign photo and let it give us hope that if Liza can marry a gay man then Cher as my witness the gays shall never hide in the closet again!!
That awkward moment where I’m invited someplace with a “celebrity” guest and it turns out to be a low rent gay porn “star”. The smell of disappoint, PBR and KY hangs in the air and clings to my clothes as I look for an emergency exit or a way to escape that doesn’t involve homo-cide or suicide. Why are gay men so infatuated with gay porn stars? In an industry aimed to deceive, confuse and convince us what is sexy, which is oddly similar to Hollywood on the legit side, with “straight” men masquerading as gay and far too many women how we that any of this is sexy? Do people see porn stars as more accessible since we see them wide open and tied up like a pretzel?
They are essential better paid prostitutes but the likelihood of meeting your Richard Gere is about as likely as Lindsay Lohan taking responsibility for her actions or Amanda Bynes putting on a shirt before taking a selfie. I can behind the fantasy part and I have gotten behind many fantasies but I rather spend time making my own fantasies appear than watch it, but then again everyone has a little bit of voyeur inside them, not to mention they mind watching people have sex.
Oh well God invented two very important things in life, man on man action and free streaming porn so sit back grab the popcorn and lube and tissues, just don’t mistake the hot sauce for lube. That’s a mistake you only make once. What? A little hot sauce on pop corn is like a party in your mouth where everyone is invited, not unlike a porn. Just keep it private I don’t need to know you like bareback, twink porn that involve two donkey’s and three black men. Happy watching.
