Reviews: Murder Is Afoot…Sherlock And The Yao Clan Are On The Case(s)  »  Gay Seattle Blogspot
So much crime on Seattle stages this week…and, it’s all vaguely Victorian to one degree or the other. Two local theater companies, one very big and the other quite small are staging melodramatic plays featuring murder, theft, skullduggery and corsets. Both have their charms…though, one more than the other. Review: Sherlock Holmes and The American … ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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 we get a chance to laugh about it! Humor is good for the soul and all that.
