A number of anti-gay leaders and clergy have signed a full-page ad in The Washington Post promising that they will not honor a Supreme Court decision in favor of nationwide marriage equality. With a court decision due in the next several weeks, this group is resorting to desperate measures including passing Jim Crowe type laws against LGBT equality and threatening civil war over a probable positive decision for gay rights.
Among the signers at the bottom of the ad are Mat Staver, Elaine Donnelly, the Benham brothers, Alveda King, Jim Garlow, John Hagee, E.W. Jackson, Don Wildmon, Dave Welch, Robert Jeffress, and Penny Nance.
Ironically, a new poll indicates that 65% of Americans believe that SCOTUS will rule in favor of marriage equality.
Get ready for heads to explode.
Didn't this happen in a James Bond film?
Pornhub today announced it has officially launched an Indiegogo campaign to crowdfund the first ever sex tape in space. The “Sexploration” campaign, which will run through the next 30 days, is looking to raise $3.4M to fund the maiden voyage set for takeoff in late 2016.
By taking to Indiegogo, Pornhub is giving its loyal fans the opportunity to be a part of this historic undertaking by providing a way for them to have their own say in how the entire film is put together via campaign contributions. Each donation will in turn be rewarded on a tiered prize level basis depending on the amount of each offering, with the higher tiers reflecting a greater amount of contributor control over production. The campaign’s proceeds will go directly towards securing key components, such as the cost of shuttle seating for the crew and performers, as well as state-of-the-art video equipment to broadcast the iconic moment. Conversely, Pornhub will absorb all of the pre- and post-production costs, as well as expenses for promoting, releasing and celebrating the launch of the film.
“We’re looking to pioneer a one-of-a-kind mission to push the boundaries of intergalactic sexploration, defy gravity and make history. We are excited to change the adult industry as we currently know it by venturing into the final sexual frontier,” said Corey Price, Vice President, Pornhub. “This will be a grand experiment in learning how intercourse works after penetrating the Earth’s atmosphere, a lesson we’d like to broadcast and produce – with great enjoyment – in direct collaboration with those interested in being a part of the global front that will make this a reality.”
Additional information on the campaign, including the full list of prizes, can be found on the Indiegogo landing page, here igg.me.at/sexploration.
While many criticize the U.S. version of the groundbreaking ‘Queer as Folk,’ it was a show that proved essential in my own coming out. While in the closet (which I was until 2001), I would lock myself up with the TV and watch the only LGBTs I felt like I knew go through their lives one week at a time.
Now, it looks like the show could be returning to our streaming boxes to explore an entirely updated world of gay:
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, producers and life partners, Ron Cowen and Daniel Lipman looked back on the struggles and successes of the show. They also pondered on a possible reboot of the iconic LGBT show:
“We’d be open to it, depending on the venue of a reboot,” Lipman said. “I think what would be interesting would be to explore our characters who are now in their 40s and bringing in a new generation and seeing how that mix would go.”
It’s fun to wonder what Brian, Michael, Justin, Teddy, and Emmett would be up to ten years later. With the introduction of Grindr and PrEP, there’s an entirely different social and political landscape to be explored in Queer as Folk: The Next Generation — Brian’s sure to have his hands full with a new batch of millennial twinks. Or will that be 30-year-old Justin’s game?
In the in-depth interview, the show’s creators looked back on the struggles of bringing a gay series to a heteronormative society, as well as the show’s notoriously explicit sex scenes.

Peter LaBarbera is taking a break from gay leather events to respond to the FDA's decision to allow gay men to give blood and “chickenhawks” in the Boy Scouts:
On VCY America’s “Crosstalk” program last week, Americans For Truth About Homosexuality’s Peter LaBarbera took questions from a number of listeners about the Food and Drug Administration’s decision to loosen the longstanding ban on gay men donating blood, including one caller who speculated that the government was using the new blood donation policy to “start spreading that HIV around” and another who speculated that gay men in San Francisco looked for young boys to infect with the disease.
“This blood donation thing, you know once they start spreading that HIV around, ah, they’re looking to get rid of people, and, ah, that’s one way to do it,” the first caller told LaBarbera, before moving on to criticize the Boy Scouts for considering lifting its ban on gay troop leaders.
LaBarbera seemed to agree, saying, “Yeah, absolutely. I think in this case this is something that should be approached very carefully. This seems like an incredibly radical shift to me, does it to you Jim? I mean from, since 1977, anybody who’s engaged in homosexual conduct, any man, since 1977, or a woman who’s had sex with such a man being banned to now just one year. That’s an incredible shift.”
LaBarbera continues his rant when a caller brought up gays being allowed to serve in the Boy Scouts:
LaBarbera then added his own scary story: “The homosexual movement does have a history of adult male sex with teenage boys. As I said, there was even a slang term, which I’m gonna be writing about on my website, where they call these boys ‘chickens’ and the older men were the ‘chicken hawks’ who sought sex with these young teenage boys, I’d say just 12 to 17, 18, something like that, Jim, and so there is this history in the homosexual male role.
