App That Blocks Any Mention of the Kardashians

kardashian app blockerWe realize that many are sensitive to Bruce Jenner coming out with a gender transformation and probably cried along with me during the interview. Whether it be Bruce Jenner as the role model for trans people or someone such as Laverne Cox that’s on you. It’s great that we have that discussion out there but enough of the rest of the Jenners and Kardashians. This wealthy family is taking my newsfeed over and for what purpose? Most of it is Kim Kardashian walking down another red carpet or one of the Jenner’s getting huge lips and teens trying to make their lips and butts huge to match their styles. There’s no telling the horrible things that people are doing to their bodies because of this family and to sit and have to watch their show on TV is punishment enough.

This app or plugin blocks any mention of the KARDASHIANS from the Internet for you. It’s called KardBlock, and its makers claim “If there’s anything on your newsfeed, the website you’re on, whatever . . . we simply make it disappear.
“You won’t ever know the stories about the Kardashians are there, because you won’t ever see them.”

Do we really need to see what new heels the Kardashians are wearing on a daily basis? I am not picking on Kim and Kanye I want all of them gone from my newsfeed. That includes Rob, Khloé, and Kourtney Kardashian. It also includes Brody, Kendall, and Kris Jenner.

The sad thing is that sometimes the Kardashians make more sense than the crazy people over at Fox News and these conservatives in the clown car running for president.

Why gays can’t fall in love and find our prince charming

lonelygayI know that I am sick of this sadness, loneliness, and the disconnection from others. Aren’t you? What can we do to look at the man in the mirror like Michael Jackson said and make a change? First, we must recognize the problem at hand.

We would rather be socially-accepted than loved.
We spend too much time trying to be in the cool crowd. We are so obsessed with fitting in and being liked that we tend to ignore being loved by another. We’d rather sit at the cool table than hanging out with a man we really like by ourselves. We worry way too much about status doing things like Facebook posts and hoping for likes on our selfies to make us feel better. Also worry way too much about what others say about us.

Social media has killed intimacy
It’s impossible to show our true identities when we’re constantly hiding behind a Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Grindr page. While this medium allows us to connect it has rid us the ability to really get to know each another. Love is chemistry felt in reality not something that can be substituted.

We spend too much time waiting for Prince Charming
The perfect man who will rescue us but forgetting our Prince Charming is also waiting for someone to rescue him. Everyone wants to be rescued with a Disney fairy tale endings. Give some bait and hopefully someone will bite by throwing yourself out there instead of remaining silent. Life is too short.
We think love is supposed to come easy. It is a challenge for most of us.

6 trendiest hairstyles for guys right now

undercut hairstyle mensHair is normally always the first thing that people notice whether it be in a Grindr photo, at work, or at the bars.
You have to keep up with the latest trends in hair or walk around in another decade with an outdated hair style.
Six trendy trendiest hairstyles for guys right now include the Undercut, Fade haircut, Man bun and the Top Knot. So this may apply to both men and women of the gay community. If you wish to go for a more classic look the trends are the Pompadour with a large volume on top and slicked back sides or a men’s classic side part for a more professional look.

Just make sure the style fits the shape of your face and is easy for you to fix at 8am or when your running late for a date.

When it comes to product if you want to achieve a dry looking matte style then wax is essential. To achieve a wet looking slick style pomade is the best bet. Now of course you lesbians may be far ahead of the trend outdoing us gays like you did when it came to looking like Justin Bieber.

Creator of ‘Queer As Folk’ Finally brings us Happy Gay TV Again!

Cucumber_and_BananaWe all could see the writing on the wall after the premier of HBO’s Looking. It was nothing like ‘Queer As Folk’ and while they were not exactly trying to be it really didn’t represent the gay lifestyle in most cities. Hipsters in San Francisco could be fun possibly for one episode but not many could get attached to the characters. I mean where was the Brian Kinney and the Justin and the two lesbians having Brian’s baby and all the normal gay friends that hang out? It came with us crying, enjoying club scenes which were my favorite parts, the back room scenes, sex scenes, love between friends, and the comedy of it all. Looking maybe had a tenth of that.

The British are coming to save us from bad gay TV. To kick off the premiere of the new series “Cucumber” and “Banana” on April 13, Logo TV will air a marathon of UK version of “Queer as Folk” on April 4 and April 11. I just said a lot right there and I think I am in heaven. This is so exciting. Let me repeat…

Cucumber_and_BananahotblackguysLogo will air the full series of the UK “Queer as Folk,” which ran for 10 episodes in the United Kingdom in 1999. “Queer as Folk” starred “Sons of Anarchy” hunk Charlie Hunnam as 15-year-old Nathan, a gay teen who found love, sex and discovered what it meant to be gay in Manchester, UK. The series was nominated for a BAFTA Award in 2000. This is the first time that the original “Queer as Folk” will air in full on U.S. cable.

“Queer as Folk” was created by television pioneer Russell T Davies, who also created the revamped “Doctor Who.” The first half of “Queer as Folk” will air on Saturday, April 4 at 10pm ET and the second half will air on Saturday, April 11 at 10pm ET. Logo’s “Queer as Folk” marathon will ready viewers for Russell T Davies’ new and hotly anticipated LGBT dramas “Cucumber” and “Banana,” premiering Monday, April 13 at 10pm ET after an all-new episode of “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”

“Cucumber” and “Banana” are interwoven drama series that will explore 21st century gay life in all its powerful, witty, dark and uplifting guises through the lens of two disparate generations. The hour-long “Cucumber” will explore the lives and misadventures of Henry Best and his long-suffering boyfriend of nine years, Lance Sullivan. The half-hour “Banana” will follow the individual lives of younger LGBT characters orbiting around Henry's world, telling stories of modern love – the romantic, the obsessed, the hopeful, the lonely, the lost, and the lucky.

Daily Antibiotic May Work as PrEP Against STD’s

hot male model shirtlessA daily dose of the antibiotic doxycycline may be effective as a PrEP or pre-exposure prophylaxis against gonorrhea, chlamydia and syphilis according to a recent study. We may not have vaccines for these STD’s yet but if we can guard ourselves with these PrEP’s we can help get rid of these infections. These researchers published their findings in Sexually Transmitted Diseases and conducted a pilot study of 30 HIV-positive gay men and transgender women who had contracted syphilis at least twice since being diagnosed with HIV. They were randomized either to take 100 milligrams of doxycycline each day for 36 weeks or to receive financial incentives for remaining free of sexually transmitted infections.

Shoot the Gays Android APP on Google Play

asshuntergameYes you read the headline correct. In the Google APP store you will find a hunting game that shoots and kills gays and accuses them of coming after their ass. It basically allows players to shoot dead naked gay men as they try to molest the player.

Ass Hunter has been playable online 2006 but was uploaded to the Google Play app store on November 23, 2014. We are hoping it will be taken off soon. The game description reads, ‘Legendary game, where you are hunter and your mission is to kill gays as much as you can or escape between them to the next level. Gays may be hidden in bushes and unexpectedly catch you. Remember- When they catch you they will do with you whatever they want.’

Houston Pride to move downtown instead of gayborhood

gayhoustonprideThe annual Houston LGBT Pride Celebration is moving out of the neighborhood long known as the city’s gayborhood after 30 years. Pride Houston officials announced Wednesday that the Pride parade and festival have outgrown the lower Westheimer area and will move the route to downtown Houston.

“The move downtown is about breaking barriers by showing that as a community we no longer have to segregate ourselves by staying in the ‘gayborhood,’?” Pride Houston president Frankie Quijano said. “This move will allow us to better showcase the LGBT community we are and will continue to become.”

Irwin Palchik, owner of the popular F Bar nightclub, said he was hurt by the decision not to involve the city’s LGBT community in the discussion.
“Dallas, West Hollywood and other cities around the nation would not move their parade out of the LGBT area. Why would we?” Palchik said.
Armstrong predicted the move could spark a “Montrose parade” next year in competition with the downtown event. Read more »

‘Secret’ app is bringing out the bullies in the gay scene

secretappgaypostWe attend HRC dinners in NYC and LA to help fund the cause for gay rights. We attend Lady Gaga concerts which support a “Born This Way” organization for teen bullying. We march in gay pride parades around the world to help get the word out there that gays aren’t so bad and celebrate the fact we are not the ‘norm’. We then bully each other until we all start committing suicide and the #itgetsbetter campaign is nothing but hogwash and misleading because honestly what they face when they grow older is much worse in the gay community #sorrynotsorry. The party promoters you see on Facebook trashing other promoters, sending out vindictive tweets to others in our gay family, people gossiping at happy hour about their ex’s or setting up others to make them look bad. All of this but yet there is one thing that will really kill the gays… the ‘Secret’ app.

Oh yes the app where you can log on under the cloaked identity of a “friend” among others in your phone contacts and rant on about anything. You can tell someones got an STD or go on about an HIV status or any other slanderous activity but not have to pay the consequences of owning up to the person behind the posts.

The DC and Atlanta gay scenes in particular have been infamously cruel to a few people where friends will all gang up on a person. Since they are all connected in friends they may see the posts more often but yet it is there for the public to see and then posted on Tumblr and Facebook and even tweeted about. One person whom I will not mention nor do I know this person has been talked about from NYC to LA and he lives in Atlanta accused of stalking someone. Why not just get a restraining order on him? Why go around bullying him saying he has a small cock and hes ugly and resort to middle school things like name calling. How does #itgetsbetter at this point? We have turned into a community of bullies and everyone thinks its funny and not a serious thing.

Online anonymity is synonymous with bullying, harassment and ugly comments. That’s why YouTube and Huffington Post have moved away from anonymity in the past year. It was getting out of control. So much hate in the world. People will sit from their cubicles of judgement and look down on someone else.

Secret is not the only app that lets you go around bulling or trashing others there is Confide, Whisper and Yik Yak that have become popular and notorious with cloaked identities.

This anonymous “app” has become the modern high-tech equivalent of writing nasty things about someone on the bathroom wall and reflects a side of our gay community that takes away all that we have done for rights.

This is not a new phenomenon in our community with people being rude and mean. If you look at some of the ads on Craigslist and Grindr where people proudly request “no fems, no fats.” But this is a whole new level of vindictive younger gays who are playing dirtier than ever.

Disclosing someone’s HIV status for entertainment, ridiculing someone for their alcoholism or drug usage, hiding behind an unsigned comment, making fun of others penis sizes or weights, trashing people publicly, and anything else that goes on behind the secretively app are all things we should have grown out of after middle school or junior high. Sometimes you just have to deal with it if you dislike someone and ignore them not go off about them in a public setting. Remember that karma comes around and bites you in the ass sometimes when you do that at least I would like to think. It’s great to have a place to confess things that you did on an app but to go on about another person and mentioning their names should not be allowed. Not sure why this app has not in itself been sued for slander.

“Secret” and similar apps reward the worst or worst behavior in our community. When you watch something like the broadcast of “Normal Heart” it reminds us of our community coming together to take care of one another. It just shows that the best thing to do is settle down get a few dogs and stay far away from the community sometimes but for someone like me I enjoy the club scene and try to hang out with positive people to socialize with and carry on conversations that are not about judging others. I think everyone needs to look at the “Man in the Mirror” and ask yourself the skeletons in your closet before you go casting stones on others. Yes Ma’am!!
