1990's Gay Magazines

 The 1990s showed a shift in gay beefcake in magazines. There continued to be a split between nude/some simulated sex magazines as opposed to hardcore ones. There also emerged gay "workout" magazines that were a throwback to the 1940s and 1950s physique magazines with a strong gay undercurrent under the guise of helping with physical fitness routines. The 1990s also saw an explosion in gay photography books on nudes. Although these had existed since the 1970s, the number of books published jumped by a huge amount during the 1990s as the stigma surrounding homosexuality began to wane and publishers became less scared about publishing homosexual themed books.

California Set To Pass Suicide Prevention Bill Aimed at LGBT Youth

"AB 2246 will save young LGBT lives."
From: NewNowNext
 California lawmakers have passed a bill they hope will help LGBT students struggling with thoughts of suicide and depression.

The bill, AB 2246, will require all California schools to have comprehensive suicide prevention plans in place for students in grades 7-12.

The measure was passed by the state Assembly Tuesday and will be written into law upon being signed by Governor Jerry Brown.

 The bill was authored by Assembly member Patrick O’Donnell in conjunction with Equality California and the Trevor Project.

“As a classroom teacher, I know from experience that educators often serve as the first line of defense when a student is suffering from depression or suicidal thoughts,” said O’Donnell who is also chairman of the Assembly Education Committee.

Current California law only encourages schools to have anti-suicide plans in place, but does not require them. Under AB 2246, school districts would be expected to provide guidelines for suicide prevention, intervention and follow-up. These plans would be developed with suicide prevention experts, parents, student advocates and school mental health professionals.

The bill would also require the state’s Department of Education to develop a model plan that local school districts could use as a guide for drafting their own.

“In spite of the sobering statistics on youth suicide, California lags behind many other states in requiring school districts to have suicide prevention policies in place,” says Rick Zbur, executive director of Equality California.

“With LGBT youth up to four times more likely to attempt suicide compared to their non-LGBT peers,” he concluded, “AB 2246 will save young LGBT lives.”

If signed into law, California will become the first state to require middle and high school policies on suicide prevention for LGBT students and other at-risk populations.

Boy Band Mogul Lou Pearlman’s Controversial Life Story To Become Limited TV Series

From: Towleroad
The life story of Lou Pearlman, the controversial figure behind boy bands Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC, is to be given a limited TV series treatment.

Pearlman died on August 19 while serving a 25 year prison sentence for running a two-decade-long financial scheme that cheated investors out of more than $300 million.

On Saturday, it was reported that Magnet Management and Condé Nast had acquired the rights to a recent article about the producer published by The New Yorker.

According to Variety, around three or four writers have expressed interest in the project.

Pearlman’s life was discussed in the Backstreet Boys 2015 documentary, Backstreet Boys: Show ‘Em What You’re Made Of in which the five members of the boy band visited his old residence in Florida and talked openly about their experiences with him.

In the November 2007 issue of Vanity Fair, Pearlman was “described by several former singers, aspiring singers and their parents as a lecher, who used the same deceptive charms to cop cheap feels off teenage boys as he did to allegedly bilk 1,400 investors out of more than $300 million.”

Watch the Backstreet Boys discuss Pearlman in 2015, below.

Baseball's Brad Fullmer

From: Speed o Rex
 Baseball teams have to look back and regret some of their player trades occasionally, and one of those would have to be the Blue Jays' trade of designated hitter Brad Fullmer to the Angels back in 2002.   

Fullmer's solid performance only accelerated after joining the Angels, and he became a key factor in the Angels' World Series win that very year (including an historic steal of home plate in Game 2).  Oh, well!

  [This has been a baseball trivia moment.]

  Name: Brad Fullmer

Date of Birth: January 17, 1975 (Capricorn)

Hometown: Chatsworth, California, USA

Height/Weight: 6'1"/185 lbs

Police Investigating Orlando-Style Threat to Gay Bars in Wilton Manors, Florida on Labor Day Weekend

From: Towleroad
Police and reportedly the FBI are investigating the threat of an Orlando-style attack on gay people and businesses in Wilton Manors, Florida made by an internet troll with a criminal history and a record of harassing the gay community.

The man, Craig Jungwirth, left this message on the page of a Facebook user:

My events are selling out cause you faggots are total patsies. None of you deserve to live. If you losers thought the Pulse nightclub shooting was bad, wait till you see what I’m planning for Labor Day.
You can’t never catch a genius from MIT and since you faggots aren’t dying from AIDS anymore, I have a better solution to exterminate you losers. [SNIP]
I’m gonna be killing you fags faster than the cops kill ni**ers. It’s time to clean up Wilton Manors from all you AIDS infested losers.
Jungwirth has been on the radar of South Florida’s gay community for some time.

Writes the blog Peacock Panache:

Earlier this year we reported on Craig Jungwirth – a man who took over the Beach Bear Weekend event in Florida and used it to solicit and scam money from unsuspecting members of the LGBTQ community. What began as a story of his harassment of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence exploded after information surfaced that not only were the events listed for his Beach Bear Weekend event fake but also all hotel bookings through the event website didn’t actually reserve local hotels (as they’d never spoken to Jungwirth or any event organizers).
Following those two stories (here and here) Craig Jungwirth embarked on a harassment campaign against both this publication as well as the individual writers associated with it. He sent harassing text messages. He left vaguely threatening voice mails. He bombarded our social media and comments sections with spam and threats. He even attempted to hack our server several times to access the articles written about him.

The Wilton Manors Police Department released a statement:

The Wilton Manors Police Department (WMPD) takes all matters seriously especially when someone threatens the lives of the Wilton Manors Community to include our residents, business owners/employees, visitors, and the surrounding communities. The Wilton Manors Police Department is aware of this serious matter and our department is currently conducting an on-going investigation on this matter and the individual(s) involved. Due to the on-going investigation we are unable to provide any details about the investigation and what current information our department has learned about this matter and the individual(s) involved at this time.
Please know that our Police Officers and Detectives are thoroughly investigating this serious matter and we ask the community to continue to contact local law enforcement officials should they hear or see any other additional posts on Social Media/new threats made by these individual(s) or anyone else.
For all EMERGENCY type calls please Dial 9-1-1 and for all NON-EMERGENCY / REGIONAL DISPATCH type calls please call (954) 764-HELP (4357).

NBC6 reports:

“Jungwirth has a lengthy criminal history which includes stalking charges. He has a handful of restraining orders against him. Police are asking anyone else who has been threatened by Jungwirth to call them.”

“Stranger Things” Confirms Season Two, Already Launches Teaser Clip

Are you ready for "Madmax," "the Pumpkin Patch" and "The Pollywog"?
From: NewNowNext
Our heart has been in the Upside Down since we finished binging on Stranger Things, Netflix’s poignant and deliciously retro sci-fi series.

But Netflix has thrown us a lifeline and not only confirmed Season Two is coming in 2017, but launched us a teaser video complete with episode titles. (At least we think that’s what they are.)

“In the fall of 1984,” the video, posted this morning, promises, “the adventure continues.”

‘How To Get Away With Murder’ Star Conrad Ricamora Receives HRC Visibility Award

From: Towleroad
Conrad Ricamora, who plays Oliver on How To Get Away With Murder, recently received the Human Rights Campaign’s Visibility Award at their gala in Cleveland, Ohio.

In his acceptance speech, Ricamora talked about growing up in a small town in the south, coming out as gay to his family, playing an openly gay HIV positive person of color on network TV, and the importance of gay actors being open about their private lives in public.

“It’s a little ironic to be getting the visibility award because so much of growing up as a kid was spent trying to be invisible,” Ricamora said of the honor. Growing up in Niceville, Florida, Ricamora recalls, “I was terrified that someone would see me as gay and I was also terrified that I would see myself for what I naturally was…I was taught by my environment that there was something wrong with me.”

Of his work on How To Get Away With Murder, where he plays opposite Jack Falahee, Ricamora said,”I’m happy to be playing Oliver, and to be providing that visibility now not only for gay men but also for gay men of color and HIV positive people.”

Ricamora also touched on the ways that How To Get Away With Murder has broken new ground in terms of LGBT representation: “I want to thank Pete Nowalk for creating How to Get Away with Murder who also lives his life as a proud openly gay man and for creating two incredibly real complex characters…and for showing sex between two guys on prime time network TV. Finally!”

He added, “It’s really exciting to be part of something that’s normalizing and representing what has already existed in the world.”

Ricamora said that other out actors have been hugely influential on his life and career and applauded them for their bravery and integrity:

“I want to thank all of the out actors that have empowered other actors like me to live with integrity because there’s a lot of pressure to stay in the closet when you first start acting. There are some actors though who have chosen to live their lives with integrity, [both] personally and professionally. From George Takei to Sean Hayes, to Sir Ian McKellen to Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and countless, countless others, your honesty and your openness in your public lives allows kids like me from Niceville, Florida to see you on screen, or online, or in print and feel like there’s a place for us in the world, even when we’re scared for our own safety in the communities that we’re living.”

‘The Gay Bachelor’ Robert Sepúlveda Jr. Opens Up About His Past

“The past was the past. I was young and it helped through college.”
 Robert Sepúlveda Jr., aka the dapper bachelor and leading man on Logo’s new reality dating show, “Finding Prince Charming,” responded to rumors with The Huffington Post on Tuesday about his past as an escort. 

“The past is the past. I was young and it helped through college,” Sepúlveda told host Noah Michelson. “But what I want people to focus on is who I am today as an entrepreneur, as an activist. I started a non-profit and, you know, focusing on the show. That’s really what I want people to focus on.”

Lance Bass, the show’s host, chimed in saying “We all have our past. I was in a boy band. I’ll admit it.”

Sepulveda added that being on “Finding Prince Charming” has helped him deal with negative feelings of some of his past experiences. 

“The show allowed me as well to close a lot of chapters in my life that I felt a lot of guilt around, a lot of shame and a lot of things I thought I couldn’t share and express,” he said.

Hear more from Sepulveda in the video above. 

“Finding Prince Charming” premieres on Logo on Thursday, September 8 at 9pm ET.

Since Gay ‘Zine ‘”Pinups” Just Turned 10, Here Are Some Of Their Hottest Pics

From: Queerty
 “The thing abut the nude image is that people tend to become confronted by their emotions about sex when they see it.”

That’s photographer and publisher Christopher Schultz, the man who just spent the last decade producing twenty issues of his iconic gay zine Pinups.
 “It can be primal,” he tells VICE. “It’s always an extreme reaction, whether they’re excited by it or want to run from it.”

 Schultz’s models almost always buck traditional notions of male beauty, as demonstrated in this collection of outtakes and personal faves, which he allowed VICE to publish this week in order to commemorate what’s destined to be its last-ever issue.
