Kayden Gray: “I Would Like Everyone To Know That I’m HIV Positive”

From: Str8Up Gay Porn
 Popular gay porn star Kayden Gray has posted the below video to his YouTube channel, and in it he comes out as HIV positive. Gray—who has performed for nearly a dozen studios since 2013—goes into details about when he became positive, and why he’s decided to discuss his status openly now.


Gray’s video is both informative and touching, and it ultimately sends a strong message of support for other positive performers in the industry, as well as anyone outside the industry living with the virus. Given the antiquated stigma that still exists around HIV, this was a brave and courageous thing for him to record, and it’s worth viewing in its entirety:

Darren Criss removes his Speedo to show off his stunning sunburn

From: Queerty
 Thanks to the upcoming American Crime Story: Versace, we recently got to see loads of photos featuring Darren Criss in a Speedo.

And now, we’re even luckier. In order to demonstrating his sensational sunburn, Criss uploaded a photo to Instagram that shows off his lobster-hued flesh, barely covering up by holding a Speedo over his junk.

“So what’s more red?” he writes. “My sunburn, my speedo, or YOUR FACE?”

Hard to say, but one thing is clear: This is a good look for him.


Perhaps Intraweb personality Tyler Oakley put it best after witnessing the gasp-inducing photo: “I can’t even, I’m unable to even, I have lost the ability to even.”

Same.

Sex Toys, 30,000 Condoms Stolen From Warehouse

The heist was captured by surveillance cameras
From: NBC Bay Area
Police in Las Vegas are investigating a pair of burglaries at a condom and sex toy warehouse during the holiday weekend.

A representative of Stockholm, Sweden-based LELO Inc. said in a statement Tuesday that thieves were seen on security recordings taking items Friday night and Saturday morning from the warehouse in an industrial park not far from McCarran International Airport.

Officer Laura Meltzer says detectives are following up on the burglary reports.

The company posted YouTube video showing what it says were thieves taking two shipping boxes containing more than 30,000 condoms in the Friday break-in.

In the second incident, police and the company say a vehicle was backed through a loading dock door. Video shows a man throwing two large boxes into it before driving away. The thieves stole more than 6,000 worth of sex toys, reported KSNV, the NBC affiliate in Las Vegas.

"What kind of party are these people having?" the company said in a blog post in response to the theft.

Is this even legal? Kathy Griffin decapitates Trump in grisly photo shoot

From: Queerty
Like a cat leaving a dead canary at your doorstep, Kathy Griffin has a present for you: Donald Trump’s head.

TMZ shared a photo of Kathy Griffin appearing to hold aloft the decapitated, bleeding skull of Trump by his bloodstained comb over. It definitely makes a statement.



Joking about the image — culled from a recent shoot by photographer Tyler Shields — Griffin apparently said “that she and Tyler would need to move to Mexico once the pics got released.”

We gotta say: He looks better in red than orange.

Michigan Breweries Asked To Name 13 Puppies Born To Injured Rescue Dog

From: MLive
 The snuggly one with the pale fur could be Atwater's Dirty Blonde. Its litter mate with the red hue to his fur could be Founders' Rubaeus or maybe Brewery Vivant's Pumpkintart. Their dark-furred brother? How about Elk Brewing's Dankalicious.


 A West Michigan dog rescue group is asking the state's celebrated craft breweries to step up for charity and pick out names for a surprisingly large batch of 13 puppies born to an injured dog in its care.



Hearts of Hope has a lot of beer lovers among its members and volunteers, so a friendly competition among brewers in Grand Rapids' "Beer City USA" and beyond seemed to make sense. In exchange for a $100 donation, a brewery will get to name a pup and receive a professional portrait of their staff and the pup.




 When the little dogs are big enough to go to adoptive homes in mid-July, rescue founder Janelle McFarlane won't be surprised if the new owners decide to keep the creative names thought up by the brains behind some of the country's best beer monikers.


 She kicked off the trend by naming the injured mother dog Harmony Irene, after Harmony Brewing in Grand Rapids.


 When the very pregnant, lanky shepherd mix came into the Kent County Animal Shelter a couple weeks ago, she was holding up an injured paw.


 Someone in a rural area had seen the mom-to-be running around and thought it was a good idea to put out a coyote trap to catch her. It caught her, puncturing her skin in places and causing her to favor her swollen leg.


 When no one claimed her as a stray, the shelter called Hearts of Hope. The nonprofit places dogs in a network of foster homes until adopters can be found - a nice option for animals who are pregnant, sick, or who might have anxiety issues when left too long in a loud shelter. Since it started five years ago, the group has placed more than 1,100 dogs.


 Because Harmony was pregnant, she could not have pain medication. But when the puppies began to arrive a week ago, McFarlane said the cycle of bedrest, eating small meals, and nursing the little ones has forced the 2-year-old dog to limit her activity, and that's helped Harmony heal.


At 13, it's the largest litter of puppies Hearts of Hope has handled. The shelter had estimated Harmony would have six to eight.


 McFarlane said she knew that guess was really low when the puppies started being born.


"When she had the first one, I looked at it and it was so tiny," she said. "I thought, 'Oh no. We're going to have a lot.' "

Harmony delivered them in batches between 6 a.m and 7:30 p.m. that day.

"She had five, and then she took a nap, and had five more. Then she took another nap and had three more."

"It's like she had two litters."

They are cute little bundles. All are healthy, and are being nursed by their mom in shifts. McFarlane is also supplementing with bottle feeding.

Judging by their looks, the father of this crowd is likely a Labrador retriever.

Volunteers and the community have shown a lot of support in the last week, donating food, puppy pads and baby wipes.

Once enough breweries sign on to label the big family, Hearts of Hope will do a big reveal of all the puppy names.

And when the puppies have all been weaned, the group can turn its attention to Harmony. The new mom tested positive for heartworm - which does not transfer to her puppies. Once she is no longer nursing, she can be treated for that condition.

McFarlane expects Harmony to stay with her for the summer, until she gets a clean checkup and can be placed in a new home of her own.

This Puerto Rican devil was a familiar face (and booty) in movies throughout the '80s and into the early '90s, before he became too ill to work. He was sexually voracious but also had a playfulness that I always find welcome in adult movies.

Rowers Descend On Washington For 24th Stonewall Regatta

Anacostia River will be scene of the action on Sunday
From: OutSports
DC Strokes is the host rowing club for the Stonewall Regatta
More than 400 rowers from 30 teams will take to the waters of the Anacostia River in Washington, D.C., Sunday for the 24th Stonewall Regatta, sponsored by the DC Strokes Rowing Club, the nation’s oldest LGBT rowing organization.

Races run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, starting just north of the 11th Street Bridge and finishing at the Anacostia Community Boathouse.

Here are the details from the DC Stokes:

DC Strokes Rowing Club is gearing up for its 24th Annual Stonewall Regatta on the Anacostia River in Washington, DC on June 4. Stonewall Regatta kicks off the sprint regatta season for the Mid-Atlantic region, and has the unique honor of representing LGBT athletes and allies after the sport of rowing was dropped from this year’s World Out Games in Miami.
Participation at Stonewall will provide an early indication of the excitement and possibilities to bolster the DC 2022 Gay Games XI bid being led by Team DC.
The first Stonewall Regatta was held in 1994 during Gay Games IV in New York City. About a year before the Games, DC Strokes Rowing Club (DCSRC) learned that the host committee for the NYC Games was dropping rowing from the sports line-up, and subsequently decided to organize an independent regatta to run concurrently with the Games.
In honor of the 25th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising in Greenwich Village in 1969, considered the start of the gay civil rights movement, this regatta was named "Stonewall Regatta."
The original regatta occurred at the Orchard Beach Race Course in Pelham Bay State Park, site of the 1964 Olympic Rowing Trials. The event was such a success that DCSRC decided to bring it home to Washington, D.C., where it has since been held every June.
This year, more than 30 teams are expected, bringing over 400 rowers to the Anacostia River for a full day of racing by rowers of all backgrounds, orientations and abilities, including adaptive rowers. Races will run approximately every eight minutes between 8 a.m. to 4 pm., starting just north of the 11th Street Bridge and finishing at the Anacostia Community Boathouse.
Spectators are welcome at the boathouse, and there is no admission fee. Parking and shuttles will be provided from Maritime Plaza at 1201 M St. SE. Good views also can be had from the Pennsylvania Avenue Bridge, the Anacostia River Walk pedestrian bridge, and from Anacostia Park.
DC Strokes Rowing Club, one of four independent self-sustaining LGBT and ally rowing teams in the world, provides competitive and recreational rowing opportunities in a safe and supportive environment for rowers of all skill levels. It offers a popular “Learn to Row” program every spring, as well as Novice, Club and Competitive teams.

Fetish For Licking Eyes

Oculolictus is the erotic practice of licking an eyeball. Also know as "worming," this practice was made  famous in one of the more memorable scenes of Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov:
I cam across her in her mother's bedroom. Prying her left eye open to get rid of a speck of something, Checked frock. Although I do love that intoxicating brown fragrance of hers, I really think she should wash her hair once in a while. For a moment, we were both in the same warm green bath of the mirror that reflected the top of a poplar with us in the sky. Held her roughly by the shoulders, then tenderly by the temples, and turned her about. "It's right there," she said, "I can feel it." "Swiss peasant would use the tip of her tongue." "Lick it out?" "Yeth, Shly try?" Sure, she said. Gently I pressed my quivering sting along here rolling salty eyeball. "Goody-goody," she said nictating, "It is gone." "Now the other?" "You dope," she began, "there is noth-" but here she noticed the pucker of my approaching lips. "Okay," she said co-operatively, and bending toward her warm upturned russet face somber Humbert pressed his mouth to her fluttering eyelid.

30 Days of Gay Pride

The month of June was chosen for LGBT Pride Month to commemorate the Stonewall riots, which occurred at the end of June 1969. As a result, many pride events are held during this month to recognize the impact LGBT people have had in the world. Brenda Howard is known as the "Mother of Pride", for her work in coordinating the first LGBT Pride march, and she also originated the idea for a week-long series of events around Pride Day which became the genesis of the annual LGBT Pride celebrations that are now held around the world every June. Additionally, Howard along with fellow LGBT rights activists Robert A. Martin (aka Donny the Punk) and L. Craig Schoonmaker are credited with popularizing the word "Pride" to describe these festivities. As LGBT rights activist Tom Limoncelli put it, "The next time someone asks you why LGBT Pride marches exist or why [LGBT] Pride Month is June tell them 'A bisexual woman named Brenda Howard thought it should be.'" 

On several occasions, the President of the United States has officially declared a Pride Month. First, President Bill Clinton declared June "Gay & Lesbian Pride Month" on June 2, 2000. Then, in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015, President Barack Obama declared June Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month.

Google marked any LGBT-related search results in June 2012 with a rainbow colored pattern underneath search results.

In honor of this I will be posting "30 Days of Gay Pride" for the month of June!

World’s Top-Ranking Tennis Player Delivers Perfect Backhand To His Homophobic Peer

From: Queerty
 They’re both among the greatest tennis players of all time, but it’s what divides these two champions that’s making headlines.

Andy Murray, currently ranked No. 1 in the world, has fired back against homophobic comments made by fellow titleholder, Margaret Court. And like most great rivalries, it all started with a pie in the face.

Well, sort of.

Alan Joyce is the CEO of Australian airline Qantas. He’s also gay, a fierce advocate for marriage equality, and a recent victim of antigay harassment in the form a pie to the face. Some people truly have a regrettable lack of chill.

Among that group is Margaret Court, who made it clear last week she would not be flying with Qantas in light of Joyce’s position on marriage equality.

In a letter published by The Australian, Court said “I believe in marriage as a union between a man and a woman as stated in the Bible. Your statement leaves me no option but to use other airlines where possible for my extensive travelling.”

This week, Murray issued a response in The Sun: “I don’t see why anyone has a problem with two people who love each other getting married. You know, if it’s two men, two women, that’s great. I don’t see why it should matter. It’s not anyone else’s business. Everyone should have, in my opinion, the same rights.”


  • andymurray
  • Holding this bad boy makes the ice bath 
  • that little bit more bearable πŸ†πŸ˜‰
We’re just going to go ahead and call that love-15.

Out tennis player Richel Hogenkamp has also spoken publicly about Court’s remarks, and is asking the Australian Open to consider changing the name of the stadium that currently bears Court’s name.

“I don’t think you should be that outspoken,” she told ENCA.com. “I have a girlfriend myself. I don’t agree with what she’s saying.

“So I think it would be a good thing to see if Australian Open can maybe change the name of the stadium, because I think if you’re in that kind of position, maybe some players they don’t feel so comfortable playing in a stadium named after Margaret Court.”

The Orlando Ribbon Project bringing together the world to mark one year since Pulse tragedy

From: WFTV
What began as a simple roll of rainbow ribbon and a box of pins has grown into an international movement to never forget the victims of the worst mass shooting in the country’s history, the tragedy at the Pulse Nightclub on June 12, 2016. As the one-year mark of the Pulse shooting approaches, the Orlando Ribbon Project is committed to remembering the 49 men and women who lost their lives that night, those left critically and emotionally injured and supporting the rights of the GLBTQ community. The Project is asking those in Orlando and beyond to don one of their simple, yet profound rainbow ribbons in support on June 12, 2017.

Founder Ben Johansen began the Orlando Ribbon Project immediately following the shooting in an effort to bring together the community and spread love and hope, one ribbon at a time. As his husband Tim Vargas, then President of the GLBT Community Center of Central Florida’s Board of Directors, rushed to the Center that Sunday morning of the shooting, Ben headed to a nearby craft store and bought a roll of rainbow ribbon and a roll of black ribbon and a box of pins. He began making the ribbons for volunteers, but the requests began pouring in and the Orlando Ribbon Project was born.

Since then, over 300,000 ribbons have been made and sent around the world in support of the victims of the Pulse shooting and the Orlando community. The movement continues to grow with celebrities including Alan Cuming, Jamie Lee Curtis, Chita Rivera and the B-52’s proudly wearing the ribbons in support and encouraging their fans to do the same.

"The Pulse shooting may have taken place here in Orlando, but it was felt all over the world,” says Johansen. “I feel that when people see the ribbon, not only do they remember what happened, but they smile in memory of those we lost. I believe there are more good people than bad out there. The Orlando Ribbon Project is about blanketing Orlando and the world with rainbow ribbons and spreading love and hope at the same time. We must never forget why we wear the rainbow ribbon. We must always remember The49 and we must also continue to fight for GLBTQ rights as human beings just like everyone else.”

The Orlando Ribbon Project is marking one year after the Pulse shooting by asking local politicians, community leaders, television personalities, celebrities and supporters around the globe to don the rainbow ribbon in solidarity, support and love. Many are pledging their support including Orlando Police Chief John Mina who has announced that the Orlando Police Department will be wearing the ribbons in support on June 12. For more information and to order ribbons, contact The Orlando Ribbon Project at www.orlandoribbonproject.com or send an email to info@orlandoribbonproject.com or ben@embellishfx.com.

New Police Body Cam Videos Sheds Light On Pulse Nightclub Shooting

From: Orlando Sentinel
New Pulse Nightclub footage shows the response through police officers’ eyes — from initial confusion to shock as they began to understand the scope of the attack that killed 49 people in Orlando on June 12.

More than 30 videos offer the most complete picture of what happened during the three-hour standoff.

In the body camera video released this week by the city of Orlando, Belle Isle Police Officer Brandon Cornwell entered the club through a large broken window near the front door and took cover behind a bar as Orlando police officers yelled commands toward the bathroom where gunman Omar Mateen had cornered survivors.

At 2:17 a.m., an officer started to scream and a barrage of shots could be heard. Orlando Police Chief John Mina has said officers fired at Mateen but did not hit him. Mateen did not fire at officers at that point, he said.

A couple minutes later, an officer yelled: “You, in the bathroom, let me see your hands now. Come out with your hands up, or you will die.”

Cornwell said a prayer to himself.

“Lord Jesus, watch over me,” he said.

"I couldn’t see the guy,” he later told another officer in a conversation captured on his body camera. “He came out of the left bathroom and we were stacked up, and the guys that were up front just started shooting right at him. And he went back into the bathroom. As soon as he came out, I saw like a dark-colored shirt ... and about that time they started firing at him, but I couldn’t open up on him."

The 15 new hours of footage given to the Orlando Sentinel through a public records request initially made nearly a year ago was redacted, and none of the people who died that night are shown.

Body cameras in this latest release captured officers encouraging victims to crawl out of the club, racing to the scene, talking about the many victims inside and the need for bomb dogs, and just waiting outside for further instructions. Patrons were frisked as they were rescued.

Orlando Police Officer Graham Cage’s body cam captures the scene of another officer cautiously leading a victim out of one of the bathrooms and down a hallway.

“Hands up, both hands, put your hands up,” the officer says off-camera. “Follow the sound of my voice. Come this way. Show me your [expletive] hands! … I need you to crawl this way. … Follow my light.”

The Orange County Sheriff's Office released its own body cam footage from that night in November. Those two dozen videos showed officers clearing the entrance, one of the bathrooms, helping victims outside and pulling victims out of the building after it was breached by the Orlando Police Department.

In another video, chaos unfolded simultaneously in the bright white hallways of Orlando Regional Medical Center, after rumors of a second shooter at the hospital reached officers in the middle of the standoff. Footage from Orlando Police Officer Matthew Davis showed a team sweeping the hospital for a “bad guy.”

With a long gun drawn in front of him, Davis and other officers followed a trail of blood down the stairs to the basement and back up to the first floor, but they found nothing.

“Does anybody know where this blood is going?” someone asked.

A hospital worker told them a bleeding patient was taken to a room on the sixth floor and described the patient. They went upstairs to that room, but he wasn’t there.

Seconds later, they spotted a man down the hall who fit the description.

“You, here, down the hall,” one officer yells, as the man ducks into a room. “Hey, hey, hey, where are you at? Come here! Let me see your hands!”

Off-camera, the man cries out, “I’m shot.”

“I don’t care, [expletive] crawl to me right now,” the officer shouts back. “ … Crawl to me right now. [Expletive]. Crawl out! Crawl out! Crawl out now!”

Footage then shows the man splayed on the ground, cuffed, with a white sneaker on his right foot and a gunshot in his left foot.

It’s determined that he is a patient – and he is taken to the ER.

“We’ll obviously get him treated and everything,” Davis says. “But we’re gonna keep someone with him until we can figure out who he is.”

The report of a shooter at the hospital turned out to be unsubstantiated.

Belle Isle Police Officer Jon-Paul Gargano ran back to his car about 2:45 a.m. to get a roll of paper towels from the trunk.

He found a woman sitting on the sidewalk nearby.

“Y'all gonna [expletive] shoot his [expletive]?” she asked.

“We can't, ma'am,” he responded.

“What do you mean, you can't?”

“We can't; there’s more victims in there. We start to shoot, we might shoot other people,” Gargano said, running back to his post in front of the club.

“[Expletive] go in there and shoot his [expletive], man,” she called after him.
