PSA - May Is National Masturbation Month! + Bernadette Peters Sings "Making Love Alone" [VIDEO]

REMEMBER! – May Is National Masturbation Month! + Bernadette Peters Sings “Making Love Alone” [VIDEO]

U.S. Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders made a speech at the United Nations World AIDS Day in 1994. After her speech was over an audience member asked about masturbation’s potential for discouraging early sexual activity?  Elder’s responded: “I think it is something that is part of human sexuality and a part of something that perhaps should be taught”
 
She was immediately fired. (By Bill Clinton of all people.)
 
San Francisco’s sex toy and education company Good Vibrations a few years back decided to find a way to keep the focus on safe solo sex and honor Elders’ by declaring the month of May, National Masturbation Month
 
What a stroke of genius! LITERALLY.
 

Hand job, Jacking off, Wanking, Tossing off, Jacking The Beanstalk, Slapping The Salami, Jackhammering, or whatever you want to call it is 100 percent all natural and FUN!

And other than the sheer fun of it here is a breakdown of how masturbation can be beneficial to both your physical and emotional health.

In general the act of masturbating can:
*Relieve insomnia
*Stimulate the immune system to help build up resistance to common infections.
*Improve blood circulation.
*Release mood elevating hormones
*Reduce the occurrence embarrassing spontaneous erections for teen males
*Reduce the number of unwanted wet dreams for young men. (DUH!  I am also proud to say that I’ve never had a wet dream )

So grab the Albolene some Kleenex, or even a buddy because remember masturbation is also a 100% SAFE contact sport !

Gay History - March 27: Happy Birthday Bob Mizer Publisher and Photographer of the Athletic Model Guild (AMG)

Gay History – March 27: Happy Birthday Bob Mizer! Publisher and Photographer of the Athletic Model Guild aka. AMG

Once upon a time long ago before there was the internet gay porn or what was considered obscene was extremely illegal and expensive.  8mm and 16mm celluloid loops called “blue movies” were available  but the majority of them were marketed to to a straight male audience.  But then “physique” magazines began to spring up after World War II to every gay man’s (and closeted ones) delight.

Bob Mizer (1922-1992) was the mild-mannered publisher and photographer for Physique Pictorial, one of many such magazines that published “beefcake” photographs under the guise of bodybuilding and health. His photography studio, the Athletic Model Guild (AMG), specialized in men (gay and straight) doing bodybuilding poses or wrestling in pairs. With assistance from his mother, Delia (who created the posing straps), and his brother, Joe, he photographed thousands of men, building a collection that includes nearly one million different images and thousands of films and videotapes.

Thanks to the Guild, Mizer was not only a subversive force in the art world, but also one of the first to push for an openly gay community

But that thin guise — almost as thin as the posing pouch that his models wore — wasn’t enough to keep him from being convicted in 1947 of unlawful distribution of obscene materials and serving a nine month sentence at a work camp in Saugus, California.

Physique Pictorial, Summer 1958.

That setback barely put a dent into Mizer’s career. In addition the Physique Pictorial, Mizer added Young Adonis in 1963 and Grecian Guild Studio Quarterly in 1966. When obscenity laws were relaxed in 1968 allowing full male frontal nudity, Mizer quickly adapted with the times. Through it all, AMG was very much a family affair, with Mizer’s mother (her skills as a seamstress was put to use in creating a line of skimpy briefs and posing pouches) and brother (an accountant) playing important roles in the business. Mizer would photograph thousands of men and take nearly a million different images, influencing artists like Robert Mapplethorpe and David Hockney along the way. He also produced over 3000 film titles from the 1950s to the 1980’s, which mostly consisted of film (and later, videotape) of his photo sessions.

Bob Mizer died in 1992, and AMG went dormant for a while. But under new ownership, Mizer’s archives are being cataloged and digitally remastered. Mizer never thought of himself as an artists, but his work has garnered a significant re-appraisal. The Los Angeles Times wrote in 2004 that “Mizer’s pictures are historically important because they capture a time, place and attitude so vividly that it still seems to be with us. His photographs are inspiring because they were not made to fill a market niche that already existed. Instead, they created the niche and then filled it with aplomb.”

Gay History – September 14, 1989: ACT UP Protests the NYSE, Crashes Trading Floor

On September 14, 1989, ACT UP (AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power) led a noon protest of 350 people in front of the New York Stock Exchange, targeting Burroughs Wellcome and other companies that it felt were profiteering from the epidemic by their high pricing of the AIDS drug AZT, which was unaffordable to most people living with HIV.

The demonstration was planned to coincide with those held in San Francisco and London that day.

Separate from the noon rally, ACT UP members Peter Staley, Lee Arsensault, Greg Bordowitz, Scott Robbe, James McGrath, and two other members who served as photographers infiltrated the Stock Exchange that morning. Chaining themselves to the VIP balcony, they dropped fake $100 bills onto the trading floor and disrupted the opening bell for the first time in history. Their miniature foghorns drown out the opening bell, as they unfurled  a banner above the trading floor demanding “SELL WELLCOME” . Their photographs were given to the Associated Press and the story went national.

As a result of these demonstrations, Burroughs Wellcome lowered the price of AZT by 20 percent four days later.

Sacramento PRIDE Bans LGBT Police in Uniform From Events, Gay Police Officer Speaks Out

Sacramento PRIDE Bans LGBT Police in Uniform From Events, Gay Police Officer Speaks Out

Sacramento PRIDE has dis-invited local LGBT police officers from attending the city’s yearly events because their presence might make “marginalized” (ie. trans, QPOC) members of the community feel unsafe.

For years, uniformed gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans and straight Sacramento officers have staffed outreach booths and marched in PRIDE.

“The foundation of PRIDE 50 years ago was the original Stonewall riots which was an uprising against police brutality,” explained David Heitstuman, executive director of the Sacramento LGBT Center.

“Not everyone feels safe in the presence of uniforms,” he said.

Officers have also been warned by event organizers that even in their polos, protests of their presence are likely.

Openly gay Sacramento police officer Officer Jeff Kuhlmann is speaking out against Sac Prides Police ban.

With a photo in Time magazine, Kuhlmann became a national symbol of the Supreme Court’s support for marriage equality in 2015.

Now in his 15th year on the force, he’s been told that as a gay man he can’t march in his own city’s PRIDE parade dressed as he appears on patrol.

“It was … it was shocking,” said Officer Jeff Kuhlmann.

The Sacramento police department has released the following statement about what’s happened:

“Our police department is disappointed that the LGBT Center does not want our officers attending upcoming public community events while in uniform. We support our LGBT(Q) officers who proudly serve our community on a daily basis. They have worked hard to earn these uniforms and are proud to wear them.”

Officer Kuhlman went into further detail in an interview with CBS 13 and FOX 40 Sarcramento which you can watch below.

*Back2Stonewall does not agree with certain PRIDE organizations for banning LGBT and straight ally police officers from marching in uniform and participating in PRIDE celebrations. LGBT police officers have worked tirelessly from within to change law enforcement attitudes to the community and serve and protect us everyday. They should be allowed to be proud of who they are.

Exclusion for inclusion is NOT an LGBT value – WK

A NYC sex party called “ANONYMOUS,” takes place at a secret location in Brooklyn is facing a botoom rebellion for charging TOPS a smaller admission price than BOTTOMS because they need a "huge ratio of tops to bottoms" and the bottoms are not taking it all that well.

Bottom Backlash: NYC Sex Party Charges Tops Less Than Bottoms, Bottoms Refuse To Take It Sitting Down

A NYC sex party called “ANONYMOUS,” takes place at a secret location in Brooklyn is facing a botoom rebellion for charging TOPS a smaller admission price than BOTTOMS because they need a “huge ratio of tops to bottoms” and the bottoms are not taking it all that well.

Like most sex parties in the new Disneyland called New York, sex parties are advertised discreetly, with interested customers invited to email the organizer for further details.

But some took umbrage with the latest flyer for the sex party states entry as $25 for tops and $65 for bottoms.

ANONYMOUS promoter Luke (who asked not to use his full name) revealed he has been inspired to create the event by an attendee at one of his other parties ‘who is a self-identfied cumdump.’

“The way the party works is that bottoms volunteer as a cumdump, they are placed into position for the entirety of the party and stay there as long as they want,” Luke explains. “I’m a big big old bottom, and this has always been a fantasy of mine, but for it to work — and for the experience to be achieved for the cumdump bottoms — we need a huge ratio of tops to bottoms, which means discounting admission for anyone who wants to top.

In terms of policing the event I have staff throughout the space. We do regular check-ins with our bottoms to make sure they are feeling safe, comfortable, taken care of properly and if they need bathroom breaks or to take a time out we can help them do that.”

One source said, “The same party promoters did the exact same thing a few months ago with their spanking/impact play party ‘WELTS’ and tried to charge doms more than subs. And when people called them out they said it was ‘because subs are usually younger and need more financial help.’”

Supply and demand? Or Is this about greedy bottoms or top privilege?

Fantastic Beasts Sequel Director Will Not Include Dumbledore’s Homosexuality

In the next film in the Fantastic Beasts franchise a young Albus Dumbledore is intoduced for the first time  (played by Jude Law) and the movies focus is on the great wizard’s pursuit of the fugitive Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) in Paris.

Over 10 years ago J.K. Rowling surprised fans by revealing Hogwarts’ beloved headmaster Albus Dumbledore was gay, and was even in love with the notorious dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald during his youth until the two had a rather epic falling out.

So will Dumbledor’s being gay be part of the upcoming movie?

According to The Crimes of Grindelwald director David Yates, this year’s sequel, will not directly reference Dumbledore’s sexuality.

“Not explicitly,” Yates replied when asked if the film makes it clear that Dumbledore is gay. “But I think all the fans are aware of that. He had a very intense relationship with Grindelwald when they were young men. They fell in love with each other’s ideas, and ideology and each other.”

“Not explicity?” When it comes to showing diversity on the page or on the screen, extra-curricular knowledge just isn’t enough. Like the supposed gay characters in last years Guardians of the Galaxy, and Thor: Ragnarock (Valkyrie is supposedly bisexualthat were hinted to and never came to pass and were later explained away with off screen backstories.

So allow me to sum up the real storyline of The Crimes of Grindelwald: Albus Dumbledore is gay and director David Yates is a coward.

 

 

 

 

GOP Sen. Susan Collins Says Bad Comments Against Her YES Tax Bill (Scam) Vote Are “Sexist”

 

Via Politico:

Sen. Susan Collins on Tuesday blasted coverage of her support for the GOP tax bill as “extremely discouraging” and “unbelievably sexist.” The Maine Republican, a key swing vote on the tax package, accused reporters of ignoring her influence over the final legislation and unfairly criticizing her efforts to pass a pair of Obamacare stabilization bills.

“I believe that the coverage has been unbelievably sexist, and I cannot believe that the press would have treated another senator with 20 years of experience as they have treated me,” she told reporters in the Capitol. “They’ve ignored everything that I’ve gotten and written story after story about how I’m duped. How am I duped when all your amendments get accepted?”

Dear Sen. Collins:  Its not sexist to call you a stupid bitch when you indeed are being a STUPID BITCH!
