Gay Latino Comic Julio Torres Joins ‘Saturday Night Live’ Family

From: Queerty
It’s always nice when someone in the LGBTQ community hits the big leagues, so a big congrats to comic Julio Torres for getting hired on as a writer for Saturday Night Live.

But while the Brooklyn-based comic may take pride in his heritage and being out, much of his material is focused on being a space-prince. Because of course it is.

“I’ve never been good or too interested in making jokes about or having material about being Latino or being gay or any of those things,” Torres said in an interview with Brokelyn. “They’re very much part of who and what I am, but I feel like the one sort of label that I do feel a strong creative connection with…is the idea of being from elsewhere.”

Below find some samplings of Torres’ standup on YouTube, and look forward to some of his signature zaniness on SNL:

Former Member Of ISIS Says Terror Group Regularly Rapes Gay Men As Punishment

"They do the worst possible things."
From: NewNowNext
 A former member of ISIS is claiming the terror organization routinely executes citizens suspected of homosexuality by stoning them or throwing off buildings.

 Kamandar Bakhtiar told Alaan TV he was pressed into joining the Islamic State-Khorasan, an Afghani division located near the province of Nangarhar.

“During the three months I spent in the ranks of ISIS, I saw the worst things one can imagine on the face of the Earth,” he said.”

 “They kill and behead innocent people, plunder the property of regular people, and they do the worst possible things, such as raping homosexuals.”

 There have been dozens of reports of men executed for being suspected of homosexuality, including four men killed in August in Mosul, Iraq, two of whom were members of ISIS themselves.

Everything We Know About The Explosion In Chelsea, New York City

From: Queerty
An explosive device was detonated in Chelsea, a once predominantly gay and now mixed neighborhood in Manhattan, around 8:30 pm Saturday night off of W 23rd Street, injuring 29 people, shattering nearby windows and prompting major street closures.

Luckily, none of the injuries were life threatening and by Sunday morning, all those taken to the hospital had been released, according to Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo of New York in a press conference. Officials also noted that the explosion does not appear to be linked to international terrorism, though Cuomo did say, “A bomb going off is generically a terrorist activity. That’s how we’ll consider it. And that’s how we will prosecute it.”

Witness accounts report the explosion came from a dumpster in front of a a residential building for the blind, at 121 W 23rd, where it is believed a homemade bomb was detonated.

Three hours after the blast, a second device was found at West 27th Street between the Avenue of Americas and Seventh Avenue. It was described as a pressure-cooker device similar to the one used in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.

Police confirmed that this is the second device:

There are currently no suspects as the investigation gets underway. Police are asking anyone with video footage of the events to turn it over to assist them. Police are also seeking eyewitness accounts and tips.

Below, find the recently released surveillance footage taken nearby the explosion:

Colby Keller On Stripping Down On The Set Of HBO’s ‘High Maintenance’

From: Queerty
Colby Keller has one of the most recognizable…faces in gay adult films. The strapping 6-foot-2 bearded hunk has appeared in over 90 productions since his 2004 debut, and along the way he’s become something of a thinking man’s porn star with his down-to-earth charm and refreshingly approachable sex appeal. That may be why artists and influencers outside the porn industry have started to take notice of the 35-year-old performer. This year, Keller appeared in iconic British designer Vivienne Westwood’s womenswear campaign, sporting thigh-high red boots in one image and a crocheted dress in another. And on September 16, he made his TV debut alongside Drag Race champ Bob the Drag Queen on the premiere of HBO’s High Maintenance. The show expands creators Katja Blichfeld and Ben Sinclair’s original web series about the intersecting lives of average New Yorkers who are connected only by their weed dealer (Sinclair) to a half-hour format, exploring multiple stories each week. Queerty chatted with Keller the day of a special screening of the premiere — before he’d even seen it — about faking sex on film, his Hollywood prospects, and why he never watches his own porn.

Were you a fan of the original High Maintenance web series?
I was a big fan of the web series. I’d watched every episode, too. So when they asked me I was pretty excited.

So, they asked you to play this part? Was it something you had to audition for, or did creators Katja Blichfeld and Ben Sinclair develop the character with you in mind? 
They approached me about it. I think they had me in mind for the part. But I did go in for an audition. I went in and kind of read some lines. Which I’ve never done before! I honestly didn’t think they were gonna necessarily give me the role. I was like, This is new for me, doing an audition. Won’t this be fun! Like, I’ll have this experience. The fact that they then asked me to do it was pretty incredible.

Did you know Katja and Ben? I’m curious how they were familiar with your work, if you know what I mean. 
I’m not exactly sure how I came across their radar. I didn’t know them personally, no. Only through the show, Ben’s character on the show. My imagination tells me that they wanted to do an episode that had gay themes and they wanted to bring in different well-known gay performers, and someone must have mentioned me. I’m not exactly sure. You’d have to ask them.

Your role kind of felt like a star cameo, but then I realized that not everyone who watches this show is going to know who you are. 
Right, exactly. Well, I think that’s part of the role you occupy as a porn performer. Many people have this secret knowledge of you in one context that other people don’t necessarily have. Because most of the population isn’t consuming gay porn. But porn is a big part of a lot of people’s lives, including, I would say probably a majority of gay men. I think it’s time that we recognize how much sexuality factors into our culture and I’m happy to see a world where porn stars get more recognition for the kind of work they do. And I’m happy to benefit from that!

Well, there are obviously very real negative consequences to stigmatizing people in the porn industry. 
Yeah, it’s a huge problem. There’s still a lot of work to be done and there are a lot of people working to kind of address that issue. But there’s still a lot of work that we need to do—particularly with female performers. They face a lot more hurdles than male performers, straight or gay, face in this industry. There are a lot of difficulties, being in porn. There’s not a lot of money there. I don’t make very much money. Porn is still my main source of income. One of the things I worry about doing these other projects, getting recognition for other things that aren’t pornographic — will it change the relationship I have with an audience that might be consuming my image as porn? Will it be harder for me to continue making porn? If that’s the case, I’m really screwed, because that’s how I make money.

Have you been pursuing non-adult roles?
I mean, I love opportunities when they come up, but I don’t actively pursue them. I think… This is difficult. I’ve been asked this question several times. “Are you planning to transition into acting or into modeling?” And I think the answer people often want is, “Yes! I would love that opportunity.” But the pitfall with that answer is that the reality is I’m a porn star and there are challenges to taking on those roles. It’s not like I’m gonna become a bit Hollywood actor, you know what I mean? And to say that sets you up for failure. People could look back and say, “See, that wasn’t a possibility for you.” And I think that’s really problematic.

So I love opportunities when they come about. I love engaging different types of performance. Because at the end of the day the thing that motivates me is curiosity. I love engaging with artists and it’s been really fascinating to get closer to the fashion world and see how that industry operates. But I don’t want to pretend there are possibilities there that might not be realistic for me.

What was it like on set filming a non-pornographic sex scene?
There’s a lot of differences! For one thing, my costar who I was working with in that scene, you know, it’s not like he does porn. So it was a very — I mean, I can’t speak to his experience, but it’s a different comfort level and there are a lot more steps you need to take to make sure that everyone is comfortable in that space. There’s also a lot more people on set than you’d normally encounter on a porn set. That was a challenge for me. All these professionals, professional actors who really have a handle on what they’re doing and have really strong, funny personas in this case. And I don’t! So being in that space was challenging in ways that, you know, on a porn set I know what I’m doing. I’m pretty comfortable with it, I have a lot of experience with it. It’s taken me a long time to get to that point, but I feel somewhat comfortable in that space. And being on a TV show for HBO is a very, very different context.

That’s so funny. I would have thought it would be, like, old hat. Like, I’ll just take off my clothes and do my thing. 
Well, I did, and I felt very comfortable in that sense. But you also have to take into consideration that most people there in the room aren’t used to that. So, you’re also dealing with a lot of different types people who have different relationships to nudity, and it’s not like they see it every day. Whereas on a porn set you’re dealing with people who see the same thing day after day after day. They’re used to it. So there’s just a different energy, a different dynamic.

Of course, everyone on set was incredibly accommodating and did everything they could to make me and my costar feel comfortable. Almost in a way that was, like, too much, because on a porn set it’s like people don’t care! So you get a little self-conscious, because you’re like, Oh yeah, maybe I should put on a towel now. You become a little bit more self-aware, maybe because there are more eyes on you.

Did you do anything to prepare for the more traditional acting?
I’ve never taken any acting classes. My strategy was to try to approach the lines and say them the way I would normally, as a human being. And that’s the best I could do, because I don’t have any acting training. I don’t know any kind of methodology that would help me. All I knew was that I’m a person, this character is a person. [Laughs] That’s all I got and hopefully it works.

The problem is that I’m not an actor, so I don’t know how it comes across. It’s really a difficult process. I have a lot of respect for actors — not just being able to memorize and deliver a line, but being able to do it with some semblance of authenticity, like you’re not acting it. It’s really challenging. It’s a difficult balance to get that right. Hopefully I did a good enough job that the episode is successful and funny and people enjoy it.

Have you seen it yet?
I haven’t. I plan to see it tonight. There’s a screening tonight that I’m going to.

I wanted to get your take on watching your own performance. 
I’m nervous about it. I’m really nervous about it actually. [Laughs] Because I’ve never watched my own porn. So it’ll be a little strange watching myself. I probably won’t. I’ll probably cover my eyes.

You’ve never watched your own porn scenes?
I think one time I have. And I was horrified and I never did it again! [Laughs]

Your character is sober. Are you?
Am I sober… I do drink alcohol and I do smoke marijuana. So, I think that would qualify me as not being sober. Right now I’m sober! [Laughs] So, I’m a big advocate particularly for marijuana legalization. I think it’s a plant that can help a lot of people. We need to be open to those possibilities. I could do a lot of good for our culture, and I think we’re finally getting to a point where we can recognize the therapeutic benefits of marijuana. It’s definitely safer for people that alcohol is. So I’m encouraged by the direction we’re going as a nation, but we could definitely get there a little bit faster.

Bob the Drag Queen also makes an appearance in a few of your scenes. But what was it like working with him?
It was really incredible. I mean, there’s a whole crew of people in this episode who are really talented, funny, amazing people. Jack Ferver was also in the scene. Just being around them, I mean I wish you could see that, the process, this group of people engaging with each other. Bob is an incredible, generous person. He’s really kind. I think he could probably tell that this wasn’t a space I’m used to and might be a little uncomfortable. He did a really great job of making me feel welcome and part of the group and engaged.

Did you root for her on Drag Race?
You know, I am a Drag Race fan, but I actually never saw that season, because it was while I was on the road filming my own project, Colby Does America. So I never actually saw it, unfortunately. It’s the one season I haven’t seen.

Speaking of Colby Does America, last I read you’d had sex on camera with someone in 49 different states. 
Well, I have filmed a video in all 50 states. There are some states I’d like to revisit. I’m not really happy with the content I was able to get. But I’ve run into a funding roadblock at the moment. I haven’t really had any funding come in for the last few months or so. I wouldn’t say the project is over or shut down, but we’re in a moment of hiatus. But people are continuing to edit videos. There’s a whole team working on the project every day. So it’s not finished at all.

What’s the endgame?
What’s the endgame? I think it remains to be seen. There’s a lot of room to continue working with the content, to continue generating content for it. It could be a project that doesn’t necessarily have to have an endpoint. To me, more isn’t a problem. I don’t think I necessarily have to think about an endpoint or and end product. If anything I think that might be a problem. We tend to think about end results as opposed to a process. For me the project is a process, and keeping that process open is really important. At this point I don’t see a reason to close it.

Be Very Afraid: 7 Ways Donald Trump Could Become Our Next President

From: Queerty
The idea of someone like Donald Trump becoming the most powerful man in the world would normally seem delusional. Unfortunately, we live in delusional times. Over the past week, it’s become increasingly clear that Trump has a fair chance of capturing the White House. Despite the fact that Trump is a policy ignoramus, a compulsive liar, a dealer in fraud, a white supremacist enabler, and an all-around creep, he has been inching up in the polls as Hillary Clinton‘s lead shrinks. And this would be very bad news indeed for all things LGBTQ.

In large part, that’s because of Clinton’s disastrous week: the news of her (mild) pneumonia coming out only after she appeared unstable in public, her comment that half of Trump’s supporters were a “basket of deplorables.” (Which, by the way is a classic gaffe: it’s undeniably true, but political civility forbids such comments–at least by Democrats.)

The odds still favor Clinton, but if the trend continues, that won’t last for long.

Scary as it is to consider, here are seven ways that Trump could actually become our next president.

Wavering Republicans make their peace with Trump

One of Trump’s main problems is that, compared to past GOP nominees, he is under-performing among key voting blocs, especially suburban women and college-educated professionals. If those voters decide that they would rather risk a Trump presidency, with all its unknowns, than a Clinton presidency, with its predictable agenda, Trump could start making up some lost ground.

Trump continues to temper his language

The shifting polls aren’t just because Clinton is doing worse as a candidate. It’s also because Trump is doing better. Up until last Friday, when he reverted back to his Big Lie strategy, Trump has been relatively calm, at least by Trump standards. No attacking Gold Star parents or federal judges. Intentionally muddying the water on his anti-immigration rhetoric. A benumbed press actually treated the candidate as if he were normal. If Trump can keep that up, the numbness may extend to voters who are uncomfortable with Clinton and want a change, no matter what.

Clinton has another health scare

The last thing you want as a presidential candidate is footage of you looking like you’re about to keel over, particularly when you haven’t told people you are sick. That’s the kind of thing that sows doubt in people’s minds. It also feeds another lie from Trump surrogates that Clinton is suffering from something more serious, like Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s, which, of course, she is not. She’s healthier than he is, according to medical experts.

An October surprise frightens the country

If there is a terrorist attack, particularly if it’s large scale and on American soil, Trump will voice the visceral response, which is kill them all and let God sort them out. His rhetoric of retribution and demand for a policy change (guaranteed to be unspecified or nonsensical) will make him look like the strong candidate. Clinton is plenty hawkish, but Trump will blame Obama and by extension her for whatever happened. Voters may be scared and prefer the extreme response, not a measured one.

 Clinton’s supporters end up concentrated in just a few states

It’s entirely possible that we could see a replay of 2000: the candidate who wins the popular votes loses the election. Clinton could rack up large margins in her strongholds, like California and New York, but if she loses by even a razor-thin margin in the swing states that matter–Ohio, Florida, Pennsylvania, chief among them–it won’t matter. Trump could lose by millions of votes nationwide, but if he wins the Electoral College, that’s the only thing that counts.

Third-party candidates siphon votes from Clinton

At present, at least, the two third-party candidates–Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Party nominee Jill Stein–are polling far better than past third-party candidates. And their success comes at Clinton’s expense, especially with younger voters. (Bernie Sanders did not help Clinton in this regard.) If young voters decide that they want to send a message, their protest votes could siphon enough from Clinton to clear the way for Trump to win.

The mainstream media keep insisting on false equivalency

Judging from the volume of coverage in the press, you might think that the candidate whose foundation failed to deliver on State Department access to its big donors was just as bad as the candidate who routinely stiffs people working for him and rakes in money from scams. The mainstream media keeps replaying Clinton’s decisions, like her e-mail server, because there’s smoke there (and Clinton’s defensive crouch doesn’t help her). But there’s never any fire. Meanwhile, Trump is a towering inferno of unethical and possibly illegal practices. Yet the press doesn’t treat the two differently. The media shouldn’t pull it’s punches on Clinton, but right now it’s signalling voters that they are facing two equally bad choices.

Just in case you’ve been asleep for the past year, here’s a bulletin: Trump is a lot worse than Clinton.

Apple’s New iOS 10 Has A Dirty Little Secret

From: Queerty
 So it turns out the built-in GIF search on Apple’s New iOS is an embarrassment of hardcore adult proportion.

As Deadspin reports, developers are working overtime to spackle over the oversight — already the word “butt” has been blocked from search, which previously presented viewers a GIF of My Little Pony (left) in an incredibly private moment of coitus.

Oh, and they’ve now deleted more key words like “huge,” which yielded similarly licentious results (right).
You’re invited to try other buzzwords that you can almost definitely conjure up if you give the subject of sex a good long think.

From: Favorite Hunks & Other Things
 First off, today's EMMY Post is a bit last minute. I have been covering Award shows on FH the last few years with a skin salute to the nominee's. Recently, they began to get a bit repetitive, and to be honest, they have been getting a little boring to put together, the nominee's were often the same actors, year after year. (how many nude Bryan Cranston scenes can you enthusiastically cap...) I also wasn't sure readers were enjoying the award themed days.But, after getting home tonight, my need for tradition took over...

I have always loved award shows, ever since I was a little kid. I admit the bloom is a bit off the rose, but growing up in a small city, far far away from Hollywood, they were a bit of window to a world I spent a lot of time dreaming about. Every award show has a few moments that stand out. I remember Charlie's Angels reuniting at the 2006 EMMY'S and the DALLAS women given an award to Jane Fonda in the late 80's.

I also love the 'theme song' numbers that take me back recording TV show intros on my little 12 inch bedroom TV when I was growing up. I love television, and the EMMY'S always kick off the award season, and the fall television season. To stimulate my interest this year, I decided to take a brief look back to when I first started watching the EMMY'S. It gave me a renewed interest in posting this year. Hope you enjoy this year's edition and if not remember, the EMMY'S only come along once a year!

EMMY'S The Men of L.A LAW

From: Favorite Hunks & Other Things
 It seems there's always one show that shines brighter than all the others at THE EMMY'S.  Breaking Bad, Modern Family, Cheers and Homeland are just a few of the shows that shown bright for a few fleeting years.  Very quickly though, they are replaced by a new show with a new cast, just waiting to steal the spotlight.

 Harry Hamlin
Michael Kuzak 

L.A Law was one of the shows getting the most acclaim when I first remember watching The EMMY'S in the mid-eighties. I didn't really watch L.A Law at the time, but when I got older, I began to watch enough to develop a major crush on Harry Hamlin.

Save Me (1994)

Shameless (2012)
 Hamlin, along with Jimmy Smits and Corbin Bernsen were the original three younger male leads. For a short while, I included Blair Underwood and A Martinez but figured I would stick to the original trio.

Corbin Bernsen 
Arnie Becker 

Although Hamlin had my heart at the time, I grew to appreciate the talents of Jimmy Smits as well.  I have to admit, I was never much of a fan of Bernsen, but that changed when looking for images for this piece.  Bernsen's hot hairy chest, and squeeze worthy butt, look mighty fine in the images and videos from Major League.
