What Is The “Vito Russo Test” And Why Does It Matter To LGBT Film?  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
What Is The “Vito Russo Test” And Why Does It Matter To LGBT Film? Why we’re covering this: The LGBT media watchdog group Gays and Lesbians Allied Against Defamation (GLAAD) recently released its 2016 Studio Responsibility Index and found “a historically low percentage of inclusive films which passed the Vito Russo Test.” We had never heard of this test and figured most of our readers hadn’t either. Most folks have heard of the Bechdel Test, a three-point media test created in 1985 by lesbian cartoonist Allison Bechdel in her famous strip Dykes to Watch For. It has three criteria:
  1. A film or TV show has at

A Queer Fan’s Wishlist For “Penny Dreadful” Season Three  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
A Queer Fan’s Wishlist For “Penny Dreadful” Season Three For a while, Showtime campy Victorian horror series, Penny Dreadful was one of the queerest things on television — it drew its influences from gothic horror literature, had three bisexual characters, a strong female lead, a transgender character, some lesbian undertones and a healthy dose of sex and drama. But after a strong first season, season two took some serious mis-steps, ending with the show’s main heroine debating a Satanic puppet and the other protagonists feeling to the four winds. Season three debuted last night, and as devoted fans, we have three suggestions for keeping ...

Backstage With Louis Virtel And His Jeopardy! Snap  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
Backstage With Louis Virtel And His Jeopardy! Snap It was the snap heard round the world: When Louis Virtel got a Daily Double right on Jeopardy!, he leaned back on his hip, adopted a happy smirk, and snapped victoriously. And thus a million animated GIFs were born. Louis was one of my guests last month on The Sewers of Paris, a podcast about gay men and how entertainment has changed their lives. For Louis, appearing on a quiz show — and particularly Jeopardy! — was fated to be. Ever since he was a kid, he knew that he’d one day be on TV answering rapid-fire trivia questions. He was raised ...

Nigeria’s Anti-Gay Laws Keep Men From Seeking Help With HIV Why we’re writing about this: The HIV epidemic isn’t over, especially as HIV criminalization, ignorance and stigma keep the virus spreading worldwide. Here’s a round-up of world HIV news that’ll keep you informed about how the U.S. and other countries are handling the epidemic in the new millennium.

Hey, TV Industry: We’re So Fucking Sick Of Straight White Dudes  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
Hey, TV Industry: We’re So Fucking Sick Of Straight White Dudes Hey, American Network TV – I’m not watching for white guy peen. Nicole Beharie as Abbie Mills in Sleepy Hollow This might come as a shock to you, since you’ve recently decided to kill off literally all the women, and quite a lot of the men of color, so I’m gonna say it again for the network execs in the back: I. AM NOT WATCHING. FOR WHITE GUY PEEN. I watch TV for women. All women. And since I have more than a passing familiarity with the importance of representation ...

Cruz And Fiorina Are Teaming Up; Will Hillary And Bernie Do The Same?  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
Cruz And Fiorina Are Teaming Up; Will Hillary And Bernie Do The Same? This has been a week of unlikely alliances, with Republicans lining up in a way that seemed impossible just a few weeks ago. The only thing that would be weirder would be if Democrats did the same — and that may very well happen soon enough. It started with Ted Cruz and John Kasich forming a strange alliance to stop Donald Trump. They’ve cooked up a strange plan: They’re going to defeat Trump at the convention by losing certain states on purpose. It’s maybe not as crazy as it sounds. ...

April Queer History: The Day All Homosexuals Were Cured  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
April Queer History: The Day All Homosexuals Were Cured The logo of the American Psychological Association Imagine if you could cure a disease simply by taking a vote. Well, that’s sort of what happened on April 8, 1974, when the American Psychological Association (APA) announced that it would remove homosexuality from the DSM. Suddenly, all the millions of queer people around the world were freed of a diagnosable illness. That homosexuality was even considered a disease was the fault of unexamined prejudices dating at least back to Sigmund Freud, who talked openly about same-sex attraction being linked to paranoia. For decades, it was taken as common knowledge ...

11 Hilarious (And Slightly Political) Celebrities On Twitter You MUST Follow  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
11 Hilarious (And Slightly Political) Celebrities On Twitter You MUST Follow Why we’re covering this: Twitter and other social media websites have given us an incredible level of unfiltered access to our favorite celebrities. Sometimes, this access leads us to discover that our favorite celebrities are actually terrible (looking at you, Richard Dawkins), but fortunately there are some celebrities with great Twitter accounts. Here are just a few of them. 1. Carrie Fisher @carrieffisher Carrie Fisher’s Twitter account is delightfully weird and often blunt. The space princess doesn’t hold back when discussing her history of mental illness or substance ...

The Weird ’80s Magazine For Gourmet Bathers  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
The Weird ’80s Magazine For Gourmet Bathers We’ve always had a soft spot for weird, short-lived magazines. RAW, by Art Spiegelman and Francoise Mouly, has always been a favorite, but WET: The Magazine of Gourmet Bathing might just take the cake. The magazine hasn’t been around since 1981, but Leonard Koren’s book Making WET provides both a behind-the-scenes look at an influential, experimental magazine and selections of its best work. Looking back, RAW and WET have a lot in common, aside from all-caps three-letter-adjective names. Both had famous underground artist (and Pee-Wee’s Playhouse designer!) Gary Panter as a frequent contributor, ...

Sorry, Sad Puppies: Science Fiction Has Always Been Political  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
Sorry, Sad Puppies: Science Fiction Has Always Been Political Why we’re covering this: For the second year in a row, the nomination process for The Hugo Awards — a prestigious set science-fiction writing awards — has been gamed by a group of people opposed to “social justice warriors” (ie. people who support racial and gender diversity). Since the Hugo Awards help honor the best in contemporary sci-fi, we wanted to expose what’s happening and highlight how sci-fi has always been one of the most historically diverse and progressive genres. The Hugo Awards have had a tumultuous year. This past year, the ...

5 Republicans Who Oppose Gays But Support Serial Child Molester Dennis Hastert  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
5 Republicans Who Oppose Gays But Support Serial Child Molester Dennis Hastert Recently, former GOP Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert got into trouble for sexually abusing underage boys. As a politician, Hastert has friends in high places, and many of those influential friends sent the judge at Hastert’s trial letters begging for leniency. The Chicago Tribune has published forty-one of the letters. What kind of person would ask a judge to go easy on “a serial child molester”, you might wonder? Team Hastert includes Hastert’s relatives and many of his friends in law enforcement, school athletics departments, and, of ...

5 Videos Of Sexy Men Pretending To Be Pregnant Why we’re covering this: Sex positivity, yo. Plus, pretty soon men will be able to get uterus transplants and start having babies, so we should get practicing, right? Film911.net is a niche “porn” site that specializes in non-penis-centric fantasies like vore (being eaten alive), stuffing (binge eating), CPR, tickling, guy punching, and — most notably — MPREG (Male PREGnancy). In an interview with Vice magazine, Film911’s founder says that while some male models aren’t willing to have gay sex on camera, many are open to feigning pregnancy. The resulting videos ...

It makes us stronger. Keeps us sharp. And really, it’s like a family squabble, where only family, those very close to us, can truly get under our skin.” “But here’s the other thing about family. We come together when threatened. And come together we will, in November. In case you need a bit more convincing, there are ...

Now You Can Literally Take A Dump On North Carolina’s Anti-LGBT Law Why we’re covering this: We’ve written a bunch of serious articles about the awfulness of North Carolina’s HB2 law. Now we get a chance to laugh about it! Humor is good for the soul and all that. By this point you’re probably sick and tired of hearing about North Carolina’s HB2 — the odious law that prevents cities from raising the minimum wage, passing LGBT protections and letting transgender people pee in peace.

The Gay Sexual Harassment And Libel Lawsuit Against Tyler Perry  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
The Gay Sexual Harassment And Libel Lawsuit Against Tyler Perry “[Tyler] Perry filed a lawsuit against Dunwoody, Georgia resident Joshua Sole asking for $100,000 in damages plus $25,000 for attorney fees. Perry was also granted a restraining order against Sole. In a, now-deleted, Facebook post, Tyler Perry wrote to his 10+ million followers after garnering the restraining order against Sole, for allegedly disabling alarms and surveillance equipment in his compound to force a meeting with Perry, was that Sole “has to be mentally disturbed.” Sole responded to Perry’s allegations and Facebook statement with a $10 million libelous lawsuit, filed in May 2015, ...
