A family friend says Eartha Kitt, a sultry singer, dancer and actress who rose from South Carolina cotton fields to become an international symbol of elegance and sensuality, has died. She was 81.
Andrew Freedman says Kitt died Thursday of colon cancer and was recently treated at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in New York.
Kitt, a self-proclaimed "sex kitten" famous for her catlike purr, was one of America's most versatile performers and Catwoman for the Batman Series, winning two Emmys and getting a third nomination. She also was nominated for two Tony Awards and a Grammy.
Amsterdam hosted a Christmas celebration for its gay community on Sunday featuring a nativity tableau with a male Mary in drag that church organizations denounced as an affront to traditional values.
Organizers said the event was meant to raise Amsterdam's profile as a gay capital at a time when homosexuals feel threatened.
Christians for Truth, an independent religious group, had asked the city council to cancel the "Pink Christmas," event, saying it made a mockery of Christian tenets. The city did not comment.
A male entertainer known as Wendy Mills posed as Mary in a blonde wig and high-heeled black boots and holding a plastic doll. Another man played Joseph in black leather trunks and a silver shawl.
The five-person manger scene was staged off the street, in the courtyard of a nightclub. Visitors were invited to be photographed with the group. The first was 3-month-old Lily Pink Albers, Mills' niece.
"By portraying Joseph and Mary as homosexuals, a twisted human fantasy is being added to the history of the Bible," Christians for Truth said in a statement ahead of the event.
A few dozen visitors wandered through the 100-yard (meter) long Pink Market past stalls selling leather goods and Christmas cards with gay themes on a downtown street known for its gay nightlife and popular restaurants.
Frank van Dalen, chairman of Pro Gay, which organized the event, said gays were not satisfied with being tolerated, but wanted to be "socially accepted as an indivisible part of society."
He said the Amsterdam city council sponsored the euro15,000 ($21,000) event, which he hoped would become a regular event, like the annual floating summertime gay pride parade through the city's canals that attracts tens of thousands of visitors.
"Our objective is not to be offensive. This is about visibility," he said.
Van Dalen pointed to a report last month that said homophobia was an ingrained problem in Amsterdam, despite the city's freewheeling reputation.
The study by the University of Amsterdam reported 67 violent attacks against gays in 2007, which police said was about average.
Van Dalen said gays were feeling increasingly uncomfortable in public in recent years, and that they perceived Dutch society as more assertive about "classical values."
27,000 letters urge LDS leader to back rights of gay Utahns. President Thomas S. Monson: You have mail - boxes of it.
The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) delivered 27,000 letters to LDS Church headquarters Monday - all of them asking the Mormon leader to support legal protections for gay and transgender Utahns.
The national gay-rights group has endorsed Equality Utah's Common Ground Initiative, a collection of bills that would, among other things, provide rights to fair housing and employment for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) Utahns and domestic-partner benefits for same-sex couples.
The movement was born in response to statements the LDS Church made in the wake of California's Proposition 8 - which eliminated gay marriage in the Golden State - that the church "does not object to rights for same-sex couples regarding hospitalization and medical care, fair housing and employment rights or probate rights."
WordPerfect co-founder and Orem resident Bruce Bastian, who is gay and sits on the HRC's board, launched the letter-writing campaign last week by sending an action alert to HRC members.
Bastian, a former Mormon, donated $1 million to fight Proposition 8 after the LDS Church joined the "yes" campaign.
"Our movement has a long history of respectfully engaging with those who would deny our basic humanity and civil rights," Bastian wrote in his e-mail. "Let's hope the church's claims are more than just a political posture."

Yo, it's taken me three years to assemble the right cast so's I could make the third sequel in the Take 'Em Down series. Since Take Em Down #1 and #2 were my best-selling movies ever, I knew I had to be careful who I picked. My fans seen super-hung top Supreme get his tight asshole fucked twice, so now I had to find some cool new thugs to give it up to the Tiger!
I asked my fans on my blog to let me know who they wanted to see me bang out, and the majority voted for Atlanta top KB (pictured, with Tyson) and New York top Nubius. Both thugs had worked in previous movies for Pitbull but none of them had met me. It was agreed I'd fly into Atlanta to shoot with KB on his home turf. And that's when the fun began!
I took an early morning flight (like I had to get up at 5 a.m., which is normally when I go to sleep) from New York to Atlanta, then take their idea of the subway, the MARTA, to the shoot location. After five cups of coffee I was wired and ready to fuck. I walked in, went over to KB and gave him a big hug. He hugged me back and we both took a walk outside to discuss the upcoming scene. It was only then that KB discovered he was going to be the bottom and I was the top! Whoa. He was in shock. So the fuck was I! I had visions of flying all the way to Atlanta for nothing. Shit!
I watched the clock and worked my Tiger charm on KB to bottom for me. He was dying to fuck me and couldn't get his mind around being the bottom. Finally, in desperation, I told him that if he went first, we'd see about me bottoming later. With only three hours to go before my return flight to New York, I finally got that hot thug out of his clothes and sucking my dick. He's a good cocksucker.
The next hurdle was getting my 10 ½-inch cock into KB's virgin asshole. Damn, he was tight! It took a while but I finally worked most of my hard dick into his butt. When I started to fuck him, slowly at first, then faster and faster, his cries of passion were hip hop to my ears. Before long he was banging his butt back onto my cock as hard as he could and we both finished the scene hot and sweaty and full of cum, ready to blow our loads.
After, he told me in private that he was happy I was the man who popped his anal cherry, which was high praise. And he wanted to know when I was going to return the favor and bottom for him. We'll see, I'm still thinking about it! Of course, everyone knows the Tiger never bottoms, not in this lifetime.
Now Nubius was a whole other story. The big guy, he's 6'5" to my 5'7," put up a real fight when it came time to bottom for our scene. I actually had to wrestle him to the ground and strip him! Shit, he's 10 inches taller than I am and it took all my strength and moves to flip him underneath me. For a minute I thought he was actually going to win and fuck me! Thank God for my years studying martial arts. They saved my ass! Sometimes I feel like one of those snake charmers from India that you see on TV. They use a flute to play music to mesmerize a cobra as it comes up out of a basket. I use my attitude and voice and cock to do the same thing, seducing, taming and turning tops into bottoms.
Just when you were thinking what else could Bush to ruin America, he gets in one last punch. Remember that "right of conscience" regulation? The one that would allow anyone working in the healthcare profession -- from doctors to nurses to the people that clean the tools to the hospital janitors -- to opt out of providing care to someone based on a moral opposition to a procedure? Well, it went through today.
Let's say your hospital, clinic or doctor receives federal funding, and you go there for an abortion or to be artificially inseminated. If the doctor on duty doesn't believe in abortion or lesbian parenting, he can refuse to do the procedure, and he won't get in trouble for it. If he's somehow forced to perform a procedure that's against his beliefs, the hospital, clinic or doctor's office can have its federal funding yanked right out from under it.
"Doctors and other health care providers should not be forced to choose between good professional standing and violating their conscience," Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt said in a statement.
The Obama administration will most likely reverse the rule, but it will take a while. The rule is supported by many Catholic groups and our friends at the Family Research Council. Oh, and the rule will cost more than $44 million to implement.
The wording of the rule is so broad that it could allow pharmacies to opt out of selling contraceptives.

Bollywood's leading actors are hitting the gym as never before, adding brawn and biceps to their on-screen repertoires and winning a legion of new fans in the process -- including other men.
The latest weight-training convert is Aamir Khan, who enlisted the help of physical trainer Satyajit Chourasia two years ago to get in shape for the film "Ghajini", which is released on December 25.
His daily four-hour regime appears to have paid off. Giant advertising hoardings show a shaven-headed Khan, who plays a man with memory loss who tattoos himself and takes Polaroid pictures to remember people and places, stripped to the waist, exposing a finely-ripped torso.
Historically, the muscle-bound macho hero has never been in vogue in Bollywood.
Instead, leading men were as likely to be measured by the manly thickness of their chest hair or how they carried a tune or moved in the set-piece song and dance routines. Wow, who knew that I would be considered "butch" by singing and dancing in Bollywood!
Artists' models in Paris stripped naked on Monday, braving freezing temperatures to protest against a ban on tips and to demand better pay and recognition. More than 20 male and female models, some posing nude while others were draped in a colourful array of shawls, sheets and fur coats, took part in the protest that had the backing of two of France's biggest labour unions.
A rash of attacks against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people across America suggests the number of reported assaults could rise in 2008, an advocacy group said.
The number of reported attacks against LGBT people increased 24 percent in 2007 over 2006, and they were expected to jump in 2008, said Sharon Stapel, executive director of the New York City Anti-Violence Project.
Officials were still crunching the 2008 figures, which will be released early next year, Stapel said.
Since the February fatal shooting of Lawrence King, a 15-year-old Los Angeles boy who endured harassment after telling classmates he was gay, "we are witnessing what appears to be an increase in both the occurrence and severity of violence motivated by racism, homophobia, and transphobia," said Stapel.
Stapel attributed the increase in part to more people reporting incidents, but she believed there actually could have been more assaults because 2008 was an election year.
"Election years are always violent years for us because of wedge issues," Stapel said, referring to ballot measures this year banning gay marriage in California and Florida. "With increased visibility comes increased vulnerability to LGBT stereotypes and violence. We've seen some of the most violent hate crimes that we've seen in a while."

An ex-policeman has been arrested in connection to the murders of 13 gay men in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Jairo Francisco Franco was apprehended after a witness identified him as the killer of a gay man in August.
Franco is suspected of all of 13 killings between February 2007 and August 2008 at Paturis Park, one of the city's popular gay beats.
Police inspector Paulo Fortunato says the police "have a credible witness who says he saw Franco pump 12 bullets into a black gay man inside the park."
A second witness said Franco visited the park frequently, "apparently cruising for gay men and victims," Fortunato said.
Police have dubbed the killer of the 13 men as the "rainbow maniac," a reference to the gay-pride symbol.
"We are convinced he is the rainbow maniac we have been looking for," Fortunato said.
It's been a poorly kept secret for years that the guy getting rich off Urban Outfitters' vast array of Bambi lamps and $150 Goodwill dresses is a super-conservative millionaire who does things like make five-figure donations to Rick Santorum.
Over the years the hip-kitsch retail empire has come under criticism for everything from manufacturing its fancy frumpwear in third world sweatshops to biting motifs from indie designers. But one thing's for sure: UO has never let any right-wing loyalties interfere with its ability to make a buck (or 40) on a t-shirt bearing a political, controversial, or stupid slogan (cue flashback to "I Did Justin 3 Times!").
So when the chain suddenly yanked "I Support Gay Marriage" t-shirts from its California stores last week, speculation began accumulating that the corporation's politics may be finally showing up on the sales floor.

If you're a size queen, part of the fun is in the numbers. Sure, you've taken a really large dick, but how big was it? Perhaps you could ask "How big is that thing anyways?" but people lie. You could whip out a tape measure, but some guys might not think so highly of your size-centric ways. Now comes a product that meets your needs. The Condometric lets you play safe and know your partner's shoe size. Available in 4 colors and in both centimeters and inches (so you don't have to do the math in your head before you faint dead away).
The "Vibrating" line made just for men, has 4 different designs and 8 different sizes with a Masters size ( a little bigger) and a Trainers size ( made for begginers or guys who like slilghtly smaller). The thing that is great about these toys is the texture, smooth on top and little rougher on bottom, not too firm and not too soft, just perfect. And the vibration will send you to the moon, now you only have to decide what shape you want or try them all.
"All black vibrators are unmistakably Manly. Dual surfaces will set these vibrators apart. Yes,they are as slick as they look. These vibrators are made in the USA out of Doc Johnson's ultra indestructible TPR rubber. Give them a real workout and they will have more to give. Waterproof, bendable and man-sized. Toys are for boys and Tools are for men....TitanMen Tools."
Titan has another winner on its hand with this new line of vibrators, cant wait to see what they have next

She was working in a bridal shop in Flushing, Queens, Til her boyfriend kicked her out in one of those crushing scenes. What was she to do, where was she to go? D.C. perhaps?
Fran Drescher, star of sitcom The Nanny, wants Hillary Clinton's New York Senate seat.
Perhaps a reason to watch C-SPAN with the sound on?
Last time BSG had a gay character, she was played by Michelle Forbes and was a semi-crazy admiral involved with a toaster. The news that the new version of that venerable 70's show (which could be one of the best shows on U.S TV) will feature a new gay character is exciting for us gay-geeks. The best news would be if Apollo came out, played by the luscious Jamie Bamber, but that doesn't appear to be in the cards. Instead, it appears that Felix Gaeta, played by Alessandro Juliani, is revealed to have a lavender side in "The Face of the Enemy," a 10-part webisode series on SciFi.com. Of course, he's not the only one, but he's the only major recurring character to come out. I seem to remember Felix hooking up with a woman in a prior season, so maybe he swings both ways. Anyways, thank the Lords of Cobol for out gay characters on TV.
It's hard for me to believe a whole day without gays (hope they don't mean sex) but today December 10 is Day Without A Gay - a protest against the passage of laws banning same-sex marriage in the US.
Day Without a Gay, modeled after the 2006 immigrant’s rights protest that swept from California to Texas, is intended to show how important gay people are to the US economy.
"A day without gays would be tragic because it would be a day without love," reads the movement's website.
"On December 10, 2008, the gay community will take a historic stance against hatred by donating love to a variety of different causes.
"On December 10, you are encouraged not to call in sick to work. You are encouraged to call in 'gay' - and donate your time to service!"
The website includes suggestions for people who fear skipping the day at work, such as writing to politicians or discussing the issue with friends.
The protest is appropriately taking place International Human Rights Day.
The group Join The Impact claims that gays and lesbians contribute $700 billion a year to the US economy - the same amount as the recent US government bailout
Gay porn producer Joseph Kerekes, who originally insisted he was innocent, has pleaded guilty to the stabbing and arson murder of business rival Bryan Kocis.
Investigators believed Kerekes and an accomplice worried that Kocis' rival gay production company would prevent them from signing a porn star named Brent Corrigan, so they confronted him.
That confrontation ended in what the police investigators working on the case described as one of the most gruesome crime scenes they'd ever seen.
Kerekes was immediately sentenced to prison for life with no chance of parole after his guilty plea.
The plea was to a second-degree murder charge, admitting he was an accomplice in Kocis' brutal January 2007 murder.
Kocis' throat was slashed and his house burned down. Kocis was stabbed more than 20 times and was nearly decapitated.
Investigators believe Kerekes and his partner, Harlow Cuadra, traveled to Kocis' Pennsylvania home to kill him because he was a rival in the gay porn business.
At his court appearance, Kerekes said Cuadra "had murdered Bryan Kocis and had set his home ablaze." Kerekes then apologised to Kocis' mother, sister and father.
Michael Kocis said, "We will never forgive nor will we forget what Mr Kerekes has done to this family."
Kerekes has refused to testify against Cuadra. "I absolutely will not testify for the state case against Harlow," Kerekes said after his plea.
Cuadra's trial is slated to start in January, if found guilty of first-degree murder, Cuadra may face the death penalty.
The third-division player revealed in a televised interview that he had been paid for sex by players and that sex took place after matches and in hotels, even changing rooms.
"I am talking about important players," said Victory in the interview with TV station La 7. "Serie A players even internationals and married players. We are talking about more than just kissing."
Victory explained that he needed to become a rent boy to supplement his footballer's income and said that he escorted players to functions.
"I charge $2,945 (1,500 euros) and the players pay up no problem. Most of the time we meet in hotels after matches, that's when they get their only free time. "They just want to relax and they don't have any problems kissing me on the mouth. But they are all terrified of being found out. I have about 30 clients who are footballers and I would say that a dozen are Serie A and national team players - several times I have been asked to take part in group sex sessions.
"Players from the same team and my friends and it is always just for sex. They all know I am a footballer as well but they like me because I am discreet.
"A lot of them are bisexual, they are married or have girlfriends. They have a respectable image but none of them will ever admit to being gay, not for the time being anyway."
These revelations come only weeks after MP Franco Grillini, president of the Italian gay group Archigay, said there were at least 20 gay footballers in Serie A.
Grillini said, "A lot of these players have girlfriends or wives - it's all a facade put there as a cover. They are really scared of coming out because they are terrified what the supporters would say."
Judge Kevin McGee made the ruling after McInerney was evaluated by a psychiatrist and a psychologist to determine whether he understands the nature of the charges against him.
King, an eighth-grader, dressed in a feminine manner and told friends he was gay.
McInerney shot him dead at school on February 12, and the attack has been classed as a hate crime.
The accused will be able to stand trial as an adult, with a preliminary hearing for January 26.
The teenage McInerney faces a sentence of 51 years to life if convicted of all the charges.

A great report on Queerty about Timothy Plan, a self-described Christian conservative financial planner who makes a list of which games feature gay & lesbian influences, as well as the usual sex, violence and nudity fears. The list is great and shows what can be accomplished when you have too much time on your hands. If nothing else, its a great list of software titles that might deserve your support.
That's a line from Steve Martin's movie "The Jerk," where he was excited because he was finally listed. It is perhaps funny because the viewer's response is a big 'who cares?' Similarly, you might feel the same way about the last minute regulations that the Bush administration is implementing before W leaves office (can I get an Amen?). The Washington Post had an interesting article, but, you might ask, how does that affect little, old porn-lovin' me?
Included in those last minute revisions could be changes to regulations under 18 U.S.C. §2257 that will be released this month. The previously revised regs are already the subject of two law suits, one by Connection Distributing and another by the Free Speech Coalition. The regs spell out the personal documentation that sexually explicit performers and related publishers must make available for government inspection. So this only affects you if you enjoy porn online or porn DVDs. Given the court cases on appeal, the actual effect is fairly unclear. Since the regs have to publish 30 day before the new administration, they are likely to come out in the middle of December. The Bush administration's effects could be with us for a long time.

A couple of gay penguins are being punished for wanting fatherhood. As reported in the UK Telegraph, a pair of male penguins in a zoo in China have taken to "stealing" eggs from other penguins in order to raise them. The crafty pair have even attempted a bait-and-switch, substituting stones for eggs that they made off with. Now keepers have decided to segregate the pair of three-year-old male birds to avoid disrupting the rest of the community during the hatching season. While the keepers have denied discrimination, we all know the excuses far too well.

A report released by the UN Joint Program on HIV/AIDS shows that about 33 million people around the world were infected with HIV as of last year. 2008 marks the 20th anniversary of World AIDS Day. This is a time to remember those that have passed from this disease. A time to think about whether "bareback" porn titles are really hotter. A time to talk about safer sex. A time to pass along what we have learned to those who have come after us. A time to remember that HIV is not a "gift" but a virus that can never be given back. A time to petition the government to do more for those millions living with this disease. A time to rejoice that you're still alive. A time to realize how much more work must be done to rid ourselves of this disease.

Okay, so I finally got to see Titan's new flick "Funhouse." I was excited because it features Eric Moreau, the hot Frenchman from Titan's "Double Standard." Eric's scene with Diesel Washington in the shower was a highlight of that movie for me. I was excited when I found out he would be paired with Dean Flynn, another favorite, in "Funhouse." The scene between them in "Funhouse" did not disappoint; perhaps the most acrobatic sex scene I have ever scene. Also a great connection between the two. More later when I do my review on the Porncast.
Anyways, greatly featured in Funhouse is François Sagat, dressed as some weird clown, although that might be redundant! As you can see from the section of the boxcover, he is not only hot but extremely creepy. And that picture doesn't even do it justice! Don't get me started on the fish-net bodysuit. Hot and scary all at the same time. Check out "Funhouse," but don't say I didn't warn you about the nightmares.

eHarmony next year will launch a matching service called Compatible Partners, which will be marketed to gays and lesbians.
The Pasadena, Calif.-based company’s announcement was the result of a settlement reached today with the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office, which claimed in a lawsuit eHarmony violated the state’s Law Against Discrimination by not offering a same-sex matching service.
The New Jersey regulator got involved following a complaint by Eric McKinley, a gay match-seeker in the state, who now will be provided a free, one-year membership to Compatible Partners.
In addition, the settlement calls for eHarmony Inc. to pay McKinley $5,000, and to pay New Jersey’s Division on Civil Rights $50,000 to cover investigation-related administrative costs.
eHarmony faces another suit in California. It’s unclear how this settlement will affect that case.
“Now that we’re entering the same-sex matching market, we fail to see what the [California] plaintiffs could achieve through further litigation,” said Antone Johnson, a vice president of legal affairs at eHarmony.
eHarmony was founded in 2000 by Dr. Neil Clark Warren, a clinical psychologist with once-close ties to the Christian evangelical group Focus on the Family.
The Governor of California has said that the state Supreme Court was right to rule a ban on gay marriage unconstitutional.
On election day, November 4th, Californians voted in favour of Proposition 8, a ballot measure that seeks to change the state constitution to deny same-sex couples the right to marry.
Schwarzenegger says "I think that the Supreme Court was right and that everyone should have the right. So the Supreme Court, you know, I think ought to go and look at that again. And we'll go back to the same decision. I think that they will. And I think that the important thing now is to resolve this issue in that way."
His wife Maria Shriver, a niece of former President John F Kennedy, has been a strong supporter of gay marriage.
Governor Schwarzenegger said he would not be joining 44 members of the California State Legislature who have filed a "friend of the court" brief in the state Supreme Court backing legal challenges to Proposition 8.
The legislators said that the ballot measure "eviscerates the judicial branch's ability to uphold the fundamental rights of all Californians under equal protection clause" of the state constitution.
They claimed that if Proposition 8 takes effect, "this court will no longer be the final arbiter of the rights of minorities.
"Furthermore, treating Proposition 8 as a mere amendment would divest the Legislature of its constitutional authority to subject such a fundamental abrogation of the equal protection clause to its deliberative processes."
Comedian and actress Wanda Sykes officially came out this weekend, announcing to the estimated crowd of 1,000 gathered in Las Vegas at one of the many rallies for gay rights taking place around the country on Saturday that she’s gay, and that she legally married her wife in California on Oct. 25.
Sykes (who divorced her husband of seven years in 1998), has spoken out about gay rights issues many times in the past, recently participated in a campaign to fight anti-gay slurs, and has openly referred to her wife in some of her stand-up routines.
But she has always declined to specifically discuss her sexual orientation publicly — until now.
“I don’t really talk about my sexual orientation," she told the crowd at the Las Vegas GLBT Community Center. "I didn’t feel like I had to. I was just living my life, not necessarily in the closet, but I was living my life."
"Everybody that knows me personally, they know I’m gay. But that’s the way people should be able to live their lives.”
But the passage of Proposition 8, she told them, spurred her decision to officially come out. “ We took a huge leap forward and then got dragged 12 feet back. I felt like I was being attacked, personally attacked — our community was attacked."
“Now, I gotta get in their face," she continued. "I’m proud to be a woman. I’m proud to be a black woman, and I’m proud to be gay.”

It doesn't take long before Tazma is stretching Orion's pucker with a huge dildo and fist. Orion grunts and groans, but he loves every minute. He also enjoys a mouthful of his own cum.
Nasty Sleaze at its Best!

Girl Rapper Khia “My Neck, My Back” has outed Sean Combs a.k.a. Diddy on her web page. She says that he is having a “Gay relationship” with assistant and MTV Star of “G to Gents” Fonzworth Bentley.
She states “The 'hood already knew that you had a little SUGA in your TANK and that you FU*KED FARNSWORTH and that's why you never married Kim," before going on to levy claims that Diddy stole Danity Kane's money and is a "pedifile" based on a recent photo shoot that Combs did with his two children in outfits that'd normally be reserved for Chippendales.

While the election day was very up and down for gay Americans, Jared Polis has provided a bright note becoming the first man elected to the US Congress for his first term as an already openly gay man.
Polis, running for Colorado's second Congressional District in the House of Representatives, joined his fellow Democrats in turning the state of Colorado blue with big wins for Democratic house and senate races as well as President-Elect Barack Obama.
The new congressman from Colorado will become only the sixth openly gay person to serve in the House of Representatives.
While lesbian Tammy Baldwin was the first openly gay non-incumbent to be elected to the House in 1998, Polis will nevertheless hold a special place in the history of gay men in America.
There are reports that the TV network ABC sent an order from higher up to remove one half of the gay couple from the TV hospital drama Grey's Anatomy.
Speculation is that while the Disney-owned ABC, like a lot of TV networks, may be comfortable with gay characters, sexually active gay couples don't sit as well with TV executives.
According to the TV and movie industry bible Entertainment Weekly, Grey's Anatomy sources claim the execs "had issues" with the "explicit" representation of the show's gay couple of Callie and Erica, dubbed Callica.
How "explicit" a primetime network lesbian storyline could even get is questionable, yet it looks as if Brooke Smith who plays Erica has been given her marching orders.
So another TV gay couple goes the way of many before it, ending with an unhappily-ever-after.
The show's creator released a statement on the back of the story saying, "Brooke Smith was obviously not fired for playing a lesbian. Clearly it's not an issue as we have a lesbian character on the show... Unfortunately, we did not find that the magic and chemistry with Brooke's character would sustain in the long run.”
Stephen English, 56, and happily married with three children claims he was often called a 'faggot' and 'Mr Franglais' by colleagues at the window blinds company he worked at, after a sales manager discovered that he had attended boarding school and lived in the English city of Brighton, which has a large gay community.
The Court of Appeal must now decide as to whether the straight English is protected by legislation that bars discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation.
At the centre of English's case is whether he's covered by regulations banning discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation even though his colleagues knew he was not gay.
English's lawyers told the appeals court that while he had tried to ignore the "homophobic" innuendo about him, "over the passage of several years he found it increasingly upsetting".
Taxpayers face a 50, 000 pound bill to fund the legal battle.
I'm not a web geek so I'm not exactly sure how these things work, but it automatically knew what city I was in. Convenient and kind of creepy.

America may have won this morning – but gays and lesbians have lost across the country. Today, I am very proud to have been apart of this election, but I am very sad that we as a nation let a majority of citizens vote on the most basic rights of minority.

“I think it presents a great opportunity for people to really enjoy everything that there’s about [Barack Obama],” says Sasha Ozam, founder and owner of Ozam Group. “If you think about world leaders, he has a unique quality of being both a celebrity, a politician and phenomenon all in one.”
“People can get it as a fun thing for their election night party, they can get it as a fun thing for their Republican friends, as a stocking stuffer — and what better way to celebrate [Obama’s] victory,” Ozam said.
He might be beautiful on the outside but inside he has shown his true ugly bigot self. It's a shame when totally hot dudes who owe at least a part of their fame and success to the adulation of gay men turn out to be total anti-gay rights douchebags.
The Mexican-American actor has spoken out in favour of the proposed Californian ban on gay marriage and made a spot for TV ad appealing to the state's Hispanic community to vote yes for Prop 8.
Verastegui is also supporting a proposition that would require parents being notified of an under-18 year old's intention to abort a pregnancy.
Rex was a great VJ for MTV, and an pretty good actor and his beats aren’t that bad either. Guess that means we can call him a triple shooter. J
