road.jpg 21-year-old Adam Hernandez sentenced to eight years in prison for the strangulation death of Kevin Hale last July near Denver. Hernandez pleaded guilty to manslaughter and theft. "Hernandez told investigators he wanted to beat up Hale because Hale had made sexual advances toward him." Hernandez accomplice Jason Fiske, who held Hale in a chokehold until he died, is charged with first-degree murder.

road.jpg Hugh Jackman says he knew people thought he was gay when he was starring in The Boy from Oz on Broadway: "My wife saw the show about 40 times and she'd laugh every time she went to the washroom in the interval. All she'd hear was, 'Is he or isn't he one?' Then someone else would say, 'Oh, that doesn't mean anything!' We had a good laugh about it. "I didn't get any awkward propositions from men, but I was already used to the gay scene, having been brought up in Sydney."

road.jpg It happens every year: gay student turned away from prom after showing up in a "slinky fuchsia gown and heels." Kevin Logan, who dressed for school every single day this year "wearing makeup, a hair weave, nails and girls' fitted jeans" believes he was discriminated against. The school says it was the prom dress code, not the boy's sexuality, that barred his entrance. Logan: "I have no formal pictures, no memories, nothing. You only have one prom."

  1. I do so wish that Hugh would stop pretending to be married to a woman when it's so obvious that he loves only me.

  4. Dude is gay. Has/had a queeny, catty boyfriend during run of Boy from Oz. It's not exactly a well-kept secret. Though maybe he thinks it is...

  5. You are all so wrong. Michael, he thinks you're a tramp. Donald, he knows you're a tramp. Conyers, you don't know what you're talking about. I'm the only man in his life. We even have little pet names for each other. I call him "Huge" lol and he calls me "why the hell do you keep calling me?"

  6. Hey there. I work at Frameline and wanted to thank you for the mention. We're also doing a conference in June during the festival called Persistent Vision.

    Love your site. I get it in my newsreader all throughout the day. It's one of the few I consistently read as soon as it comes through.

    Cheers!

  8. Love the new building design. I'm liking the tendency on the non-square. Have you seen this new condo to Mississauga (the GTA).

  9. "Logan, who is gay.... said he had spent years defining and exploring his sexuality. This year, he took a major step by dressing as a female every day, wearing makeup, a hair weave, nails and girls' fitted jeans to school."

    More Associated Press homostupidity, echoed coast to coast. At least the SF Chronicle added in the caption to the picture—which the Wash Post didn't show—"describes himself as a transgender and gay student," though it's not clear from the original Gary, Indiana, paper article they got it from if he/she said that. The only direct quote is, "I’m gay. I’m a drag queen.”
    Confusion all around, and more evidence what a lousy job national gay groups have done in clarifying these things. We sent them millions of dollars and all we have to show for it is 1950s' era reportage. Certainly judging by the picture, if Logan does identify as gay AND transgender, the best caption would be "Lipstick Lesbian." In any case, the school ban was unjust.

  14. Skyscraper does look like it's melting. I hope they focus on the asthetic of any future skyscrapers now that the horrid looking twin towers are gone. Only awesome in their enormity and twin....ness. Make pretty building.
