Chaz Cha-Cha’s, Gay Terrorists, Bi-Sexual Succubus, and Catholic Homos…

gb aug 31

Holy Crap! What a week! Double Holy Crap! Did you see Gaga in drag? OMG! HAWT! Well, back here in Calgary, homos are dusting off thier boas, and finding thier gayest of outfits because Pride Calgary is almost here! This is my fourth year with the Board of Directors and this year’s Pride Celebrations this weekend are going to be the biggest and the best. We have doubled in size since I came on board, and our awesome Mayor, Naheed Nenshi has graciously accepted our invitation to be our Grand Marshall (you hear that Rob Ford?). Plus, the hotness called The Cliks will be performing at our Offical Pride Dance. Can’t wait!!!

Chaz Bono Joins Dancing With the Stars

As the child of Cher, Chaz Bono has got to have some dancing fabulousness in his DNA. Well, let`s hope so, as he is the latest celebrity to join the cast of next season`s Dancing With The Stars. Unless you have been hiding under a rock for the past couple of years, you have probably heard about Chaz`s phsyical transition from female to male. He has been on Oprah,  and every magazine this side of Mexico talking about his transition, and his challenges with it.

Make sure to check out his biography Becoming Chaz  on the OWN Network as well to get an idea of his life up until now. Certain publications (TMZ) did, however make certain that we knew that he was dancing with a ‘girl’ (gasp!) so as not to get confused. Thanks for the heads up.

Bono joins other revealed cast members, Nancy Grace (CNN Bitch..uh Investigative Journalist), Snooki (YES!), David Arquette (hopefully drug-free), Kristin Cavallari (The Hills), Ricki Lake (ever seen Cry Baby), Rob Kardashian (Kim`s bro), Hope Solo (no idea), Elisabetta Canalis (Clooney`s HOT ex.), JR Martinez (no idea), Ron Artest (no idea), and Carson Kressley (yes!). CAN`T WAIT!

Gays are Terrorists That Want to Jail Conservatives

Ah, some more wise words from another Right-Wing American Think Tank. J. Matt Barber (I am pretty sure that the J stands for jerk) of The Liberty Counsel who`s mandate is to `restore the culture by advancing religious freedom, and the sanctity of human life and the family`(blah, blah) is pretty adamant about our terrorist ways. “The sexual anarchist lobby, this radical, militant lobby, wants three things in this order: they want to see those of us who hold traditional values and have a biblical view of sexual behavior and sexual morality; they want to see us behind bars. Absent that, if that doesn’t work, they want to see us discredited, our licenses, my law licenses revoked, unable to teach in schools and so forth. They want us completely discredited and marginalized to the fringes of society. Finally and included in that is the inability, they want to see people like us not able to make a living.` Two things. I love being called a sexual anarchist, it makes me feel like I am fucking my way to a socialist ideal. Secondly, why didn`t anyone else in my terrorist group of homo`s tell me this is what we were doing. Apparently queer organizations are putting pressure on Big Business to donate to gay-friendly charities. Yes, folks, we are the face of terrorism.

In case you were wondering, this is what a “sexual anarchist lobby, this radical, militant lobby” would look like:

Lost Girl`s Anna Silk Discusses Character’s Bisexuality

 

I have to say, I have never been a Sci-Fi fan, but throw in some lady loving and I will take a front row seat. Lost Girl is hot, it has to be it is on Showcase. It follows the story of Bo (Anna Silk) a succubus. I know you are asking me what that is. Well, let me tell you. A succubus is a creature that sucks the life out of others to live. Kind of like Blood to Edward. Or my Ex Girlfriend. You get the point. Anyways, not only does she look hot in her attire, she also is Bi-Sexual, and has had numerous (somewhat graphic) sex scenes with her lady love, Lauren­. Silk tooks some time to talk to Digital Spy about this relationship. `Bo’s sexuality is not really discussed on the show – she’s a sexual creature and she falls in love with both Dyson and Lauren. It’s not highlighted as her being bisexual, which I like. I like that that’s just how it is, and it’s accepted. The Lauren / Bo relationship is such a real relationship, and I think that’s what resonated with people.`Well it sure worked on the Sci-Fi virgin.

Catholic Schools  (May) Go Homo

Yes, you heard me. On August 31st dozens of people are said to pack a Toronto School Board Boardroom to debate whether they catch up to 2011, uh, I mean if the equality and  inclusion education policy, even though it has already passed. This meeting is expected to be attended by those against the policy stating that it is against the Church to teach and accept ideals (homos) that are against the Catholic Church`s teachings. These protestors are also protesting bullying prevention and peer support. Wow. No words. On a more encouraging note, 16 year-old Claire Purdy, a Catholic Student will be putting in a petition at the meeting to create a Ga-Straight Alliance. “I want to see GSAs in every school, public, Catholic, private, whatever,” she says assertively. “Students should be able to call groups whatever they want. It must be up to the students.” I am starting to see why investing in our youth is so important.

  1. So excited about Chaz on DWTS. I might actually watch it now. But I also could probably do without all of the commotion it will cause. Apparently ABC has already had tons of complaints, but worse of course will be watching people fuddle, and fuddle more the gender pronouns, and completely off colour comments.
