Gay.com Daily breaks done hair politics and trends like 1,2,3.
Hair. For gay men, it can be a complex topic.
Those thousands upon thousands of tiny strands do more than frame your features and enhance your masculinity. They are a social signifier that can communicate everything from how you feel about politics to how you want to be viewed to who you want in bed—and what you’ll do with the guy once you get him there.
For the last few decades it’s been easy to track the twin progressions of hair and sex in the media. In 1968, Hair brought shaggy manes, bearded faces, and sexual abandon to Broadway; in 1970, Joe Dallesandro memorably debuted his past-shoulder-length, stick-straight tresses in the movie Trash; and in 1972, Burt Reynolds stunned the world in his Cosmopolitan centerfold wearing just a smile and the most beautiful mustache ever grown—oh, and some luxurious chest hair that would be popping out of unbuttoned shirts for the next few decades.

You haven’t heard of Jordan Moss yet? Hold your hand in capital L formation and press firmly against your forehead! Jordan tells me that he’s “hoping to get into the studio this year and record a 5 song EP that I can make available on iTunes.” A commonality that took over our conversation was our love for singer/song writer Brandi Carlile. ” “Brandi C. is a HUGE influence for me I’m a big fan and she definitely influences my songwriting”, Jordan says. We look forward to bopping to that EP of yours in the near feature.
Jordan Moss became interested in music at a very young age, singing almost before he could talk. He started playing drums at the age of 12, but soon felt the need to create music. He took a guitar class offered by his junior high school, learning guitar theory and music reading, while also learning to play by ear to songs on the radio. He began writing songs as he became more skilled on the guitar. Jordan played in various bands throughout his high school years, including his most long-lived band Margie Whatever with his younger brother Brandon playing drums. For 5 years Jordan led and directed music services for his church in Colorado Springs, CO. Since then he has written and recorded and played solo acoustic shows across Denver, Phoenix, and his hometown of Austin, TX.

Anti-gay groups plan increased spending, activity through 2012
Anti-gay rights groups around the country will see a cash infusion over the next two years through a plan called “Ignite an Enduring Cultural Transformation.” And the groups are remaining mum about who is responsible.
The campaign, which largely targets states where Republicans won control of legislatures or governorships, has garnered the support of Republican political superstars such as former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (Va.), Sens. Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Jon Kyl (Ariz.), and Rep. Trent Franks (Ariz.). The groups intend to pass anti-gay marriage amendments, curtail abortion rights and, in at least one case, ban “transgender bathrooms.” READ MORE @ coloradoindependent.com
