Last night POSE star Billy Porter released his own State of the Union address for the LGBT community.
Porter recapped the past LGBT highlights of the year ranging from a record number of LGBT members elected to Congress and out Mayor Pete Buttigieg announcing his run for president to Jared Polis winning the governorship in Colorado.
Porter also spotlighted the gay crackdown in Chechnya and the anti-LGBT violence in Brazil resulting from the election of president Jair Bolsonaro and also talked about the increase in LGBTQ hate crimes, particularly transgender women of color.
Porter was even able to work in a plug for his own television show POSE
The one thing that Porter did not mention, or overlooked is the fact that after fighting for 50 years since the Stonewall riots took place is that gay, lesbian, bisexuals and transgender Americans still DO NOT have the same equal federal civil rights protection and all other Americans have in this country.
In this the 50th Anniversary year of the Stonewall Riots the lack of GLBT federal civil rights something we should remember but should be in the forefront of our fight and never forgotten/.
LOGO has announced that it has renewed Finding Prince Charming for a second season because everybody apparently everyone loves a trainwreck!
The cable network announced Thursday that it has given the green light for another season of the “reality dating” competition series that launched in September and currently airs Thursday nights (9 ET/PT). Lance Bass is host and this season’s Prince Charming is interior designer and Rentboy Robert Sepulveda Jr.
The current season will end Nov. 3 when Sepulveda and his remaining suitors (No fats or fems allowed!) travel to a romantic destination where he will select a winner from the finalists competing for his heart and from the looks of his online porn pictures, very large penis. On Nov. 10, Bass will welcome back Sepulveda and the 13 contestants that started the series in a reunion special.
’Finding Prince Charming is unlike anything that’s currently on television and fans can’t seem to get enough of the reality series,” Pamela Post, SVP of Original Programming for Logo, says in a statement. “The show is a winning mix of drama and romance topped with humor and we are looking forward to leveling up next season.”
Others have not been so kind:
The ‘Gay Bachelor’ Is a Disaster: How Could ‘Finding Prince Charming’ Get It So Wrong? – The Daily Beast
‘Finding Prince Charming’ review: The gay ‘Bachelor’ isn’t worth the drama. – Mic.com
Rich Juzwiak over at The Muse was fairly blunt about his impression of the show.
“While undoubtedly a product of vanity, it was neither particularly good nor bad enough to have the makings of a delicious disaster. It just kinda lay there, like a guy who’s been f-cked into a state of dissociated exhaustion.”
According to Logo, casting has already started on Season 2 and and viewers will have a chance to influence the new cast by helping to pick one lucky lady suitor to vie for the penis heart of the second Prince Charming through an online submission and voting process.
So if you have a hankering to be a vapid shallow ho on television. From Nov. 3 through Nov. 16, potential contestants may submit a photo or video through Instagram or Twitter, making their case for why they should have a chance at becoming a pariah in the gay community. On Nov. 17, “fans” are invited to return to vote from a list of finalists and the winner will join the show. BYOP (Bring Your Own Penicillin)
“As much as I will miss the illustrious and fabulous life of an ‘A-list reality star,’ being public, being subject to the small but progressive, loud and proud, ‘gay hate and take down other gays’ judgment machine, and being the target of gossip from the flawless corps of amazingly accomplished, secure, sassy, role model bloggers — and don’t forget the very brave commenters on those blog stories; all winners — of the gay media hate-o-sphere… the dignity department of my soul tells me that it’s time for a new direction. I will, of course, also miss having the few worst moments of my life put on screen each week, with all 900 recorded hours of my best, positive, happy, benevolent, successful, charitable, fun, and loving moments vanishing, hidden as if they didn’t exist, and swiftly deleted from any sort of public view whatsoever.” – A-List: New York reality whore star Reichen Lehmkuhl, speaking to Gay.net.’s Brandon Voss who must have been really having a slooow news day or a nice payoff from his agent.
Oh cry for us RΞICHΞN™, (Seriously? Trademarked?). Your life is SO HARD. It’s SO ROUGH.Wah wah wah. You fucking signed up for that piece of bullshit show that did more for anti-gay propaganda than the Family Research Council ever could, so what the hell did you expect?!?
“The dignity department of my soul”
Oh Bitch PLEASE!.
Your “Dignity Department” closed up after being busted in a CAM4 jackoff session and deciding that it would be a good idea to tell your friends AND YOUR MOTHER about it on-camera for a paycheck.
Now take your trademarked name and go toddle off to obscurity. We’ll see you in gay porn, as a power bottom in about 6 months.
Well it just took a matter of time and waiting until a few hours before teh premiere of it’s new piece of crap “The A List: Dallas” but Logo’s official blog has unquestioningly posted that GOProud member Taylor Garrett’s claim that an angry gay leftist hurled a rock through his window because he had lunch with Ann Coulter for an upcoming episode of A-List:Dallas and is using it for all that its worth. Even though LOGO and Logo executive producer John Hill have been eyed as suspicious accompliaces in the hoax, especially after Hill tweeted congratulations to A-List: Garrett for “making headlines” with his gay-on-gay hate crime claim.
Last week news broke that right-wing Republican pundit Ann Coulter would be making a guest appearance this season on Logo’s new series, “The A-List: Dallas” (which premieres tonight at 11pm ET). Turns out that Coulter popped by for a visit with “A-List: Dallas” cast member Taylor Garrett (he’s the show’s gay Christian Republican) and that little rendezvous will be featured on the show. The blogs buzzed, discussion raged, and Change.org even started up a petition about it!
But the uproar was taken to a weird, personal and violent level this past weekend, when a rock was hurled through the window of Taylor’s Dallas home. Creepy!
In the meantime… All the more reason to tune in to tonight’s big “A-List: Dallas” premiere on Logo to meet Taylor and the rest of the cast, and to see what the fuss is all about.
BOYCOTT LOGO. And lets hope that this craptastic channel finally dissappears forever.
After complaints about Coulters and GOProud’s appearance, “gay conservative christian republican” A-List: Dallas cast member Taylor Garrett claimed he was a victim of a “hate crime” tweeting that liberal activist threw a rock though his window with a hate note attached about him being a republican. Of course Chris R Barron of GOProud went livid accusing the LGBT media of not covering it. And we all know how GOPrould loves media attention for “supposed” hate crimes. *cough* Jimmy LaSalvia *cough*
But after being pushed for proof and police reports Garrett deleted his claims about the rock through his window. And Logo executive producer John Hill tweeted congratulations to A-List: Garrett for “making headlines” with his gay-on-gay hate crime claim and possibly helped promote the possibly-now-faked hate crime charge.
NOTE: If you have Netflix Streaming and since it is Gay History Month head on over and watch the documentary ” Gay Sex In The 70’s”. – The documentary tell the story of a pivotal era in gay history — the 12 years between the landmark incident at Stonewall in 1969 and the first reported cases of AIDS in 1981, which marked a period of unparalleled growth for America’s gay community, ushering in a new era of sexual frankness. This film tells the story through colorful scenes from 1970s erotic life, and candid interviews with the gay New Yorkers who experienced it. – The kind of programming LOGO SHOULD HAVE!
LOGO’s reply: “Looks like we lost the grumpy demographic.”
Now thats pretty carefree talk for a 3rd rate cable network that relies on Interns to run it, MTV leftovers about unwed pregnant mothers (Hello! We’re GAY!) , 5 generation reruns and such BAD LGBT Direct to Video CRAP that TLA and WOLFE Media can’t even give them away
And if having one the most hated anti-gay right GOP women in America on LOGO isn’t enough. at the same time they are enabling that Auntie Tom GOP Organization of greedy gay homo’s called GOFuckYourself GOProud:
Head Auntie Tom Jimmy LaSalvia who will be appearing with Ilse Coulter is crowing like its the first time in years he’s been laid (And he probably hasn’t been laid in years.)
“We at GOProud are thrilled at this opportunity. We look forward to gay people everywhere getting a chance to hear about our organizations and hear from Ann Coulter – simply the smartest, funniest and most stylish woman in politics today. We thank Ann for agreeing to do this and for continuing her outspoken support for gay conservatives.” – Jimmy LaSalvia
Way to go LOGO! Not only do you suck. You now enable enemies to Equality!
There’s a LOGO boycott page on Facebook and I urge EVERYONE to join.
I also urge everyone to TURN OFF LOGO! BOYCOTT THAT BITCH!
I am sure you all can live without watching “16 and Pregnant (?)” and 23,367 showing of “Eating Out: All You Can Eat”
Oh, and @LogoTVTwittertwatti. I personally think by the time that this is over you’ll be losing much more than the “grumpy” demographic by the time this is all over
As if to prove the point that LOGO-TV really has no integrity or creativity and it really doesn’t care that the majority of people watching The A-List: New York only do so because they hate it and want to make fun of the vapid queen losers. LOGO has pulled out all the stops in casting their newest train-wreck spin-off The A-List: Dallas.
So how do you top the talentless casting of 15 minutes ago Reichen Lemehkuhl or the spary tan addicted megalomaniac Derek? Easy they cast GOProud Matt Hissy clone Taylor, a queen with a penchant for big bow-ties and who’s a gay christian conservative who loves to raises money for anti-gay candidates!
Turns out that Ex Amazing Race Winner and LOGO’s “A List: New York” ehhhhm, “star” Reichen Lehmkuhl had an anonymous “Cam4ra” profile on Cam4.com where he had some rather hot X-rated video chats with anonymous guys. (Well I guess he had to do something in his spare time, his career obviously isn’t going anywhere.)
