Wonder Twin Powers Activate, Form of a New and Improved Queerty !

by Accidental Bear

Welcome Back Queerty!

GayCities Eats up Queerty

“So when Queerty owner David Hauslaib offered GayCities the opportunity to acquire the blog he founded six years ago, we were hooked. After fixing some technical glitches, we are relaunching today. We’re bringing back key Queerty writers including Daniel Villareal, who will post daily from Dallas, while adding a bunch of our own stars such as Matt Baume, Dan Tracer, Oscar Raymundo, Dan Renzi, Scott Wallis, Jeff Katz and GayCities New York City editor Jeffrey James Keyes. ” READ MORE AT QUEERTY.COM

Bye-Bye Queerty.com, We Will Miss you

by Accidental Bear

I was just logging on to one of my queer blog staples who had been “off line” for a week fixing emergency repairs, but they have shut their doors, closed up shop and gone. I’m dying to know why. My second favorite queer blog Towleroad, now my number 1, dives in for a closer look. On an up note, on the gay blog food chain, maybe Accidental Bear moves up a notch?

LGBT BLOG QUEERTY CLOSES

Queerty

Following nearly a week in which LGBT blog Queerty was offline, its management has called it quits:

“After more than five years of serving the LGBT community with news and entertainment, Queerty has come to a close. The decision to shutter the site was not an easy one to make, and it is with great pain that we say goodbye to our loyal readership. From all of Queerty’s writers and contributors, from our first unto our last day, thank you for spending some time with us.”

In an email sent out yesterday by its owner David Hauslaib, some explanation was given for the shutdown:

As many of you know, last year Queerty partnered with the folks at 353Media to handle its operations. I transitioned out of my original role to make time to tackle some unrelated projects, and a trusted crew took the reins. Sadly last week, in a scenario that began with some technical headaches, has ended with 353 opting not to continue operating the site. It is a decision I was saddened to hear, and I worked to find an amenable solution that would keep Queerty online. That effort was unsuccessful.

I have watched web properties that I launched come to an close before, but Queerty’s end is certainly one of the hardest to see.

Queerty had cited “technical emergencies” for most of last week while publishing only a Twitter feed.

As someone familiar with both the satisfactions and the challenges that come with keeping up a day-to-day news blog, I can sympathize with the difficulties of letting go. We wish David and his team the best in their new endeavors.

GLAAD Awards; Dolly Remains, Publicly, Heterosexual

by Accidental Bear

No last name needed, Dolly steals the show. Big hair, enormous ta-tas and even big gay fan base. Does anyone really care about her lesbian rumors? Not me, her music make me cry, gives me goose bumps and makes me soar with joy (self-confessional).

Dolly Parton‘s Pseudo Coming Out At The GLAAD Awards

At last night’s GLAAD Awards in Los Angeles, the second of three award-y fundraisers the organization hosts each year, you had both Modern Family and Glee winning for Best Comedy, because homosexuals cannot make up their minds about which type of homosexual humor they like more. (Though I can’t remember any of the gay storylines on Glee ever being really … funny.) But the best part of the program was when surprise guest Dolly Parton came to the podium to give NBC Entertainment chief Robert Greenblatt, who came over from Showtime, a trophy. “I guess you could say that I’m coming out tonight!,” Dolly screamed at the audience. Which was cute, but not true: Dolly remains, publicly, heterosexual. – Queerty

Gay and Celibate for 10 yrs; Donate Blood in Britain

by Accidental Bear

First off this counts out anyone I know. I am dumbfounded by laws that are made that make no sense and deemed useless. How do they expect to collect the data of these supposed men who claim to have 10 yrs of celibacy. Maybe they will add a new segment on the Maury Povich Show and they will give lie detector tests to sexual deviant homosexual who wish to give blood , who claim to have had no sex in 10 yrs (Define sex?). It will be a jam packed show with,” Is that your baby Daddy? results and the new addition, ” I are a lying cock sucking Deviant?”

Britain To Let Gay Men Donate Blood (If They Haven’t Had Any Gay Sex In 10 Years)

Via Queerty

Great news, do-gooding homosexual Britons: The blood police are going to let you give up your O-negatives and your AB-positives and your plasma! Well, so long as you’ve been celibate for 10 years.

Britain’s health minister Anne Milton will soon announce revised rules for donating blood that let gay men enter the mix. But there’s one big asterisk: only gay men who have not had gay sex within the past 10 years are eligible to get a needle stuck in their arm. You know, because you’re all HIV-carrying monsters, and health officials simply don’t know how to properly screen for improprieties. Also, because having butt sex with another dude three years ago, or eight years, or nine years, still makes you a risk factor!

It’s been a change year’s in the making. (See our 2009 post: “Britain Ready to Admit: No Good to Reason to Ban Gay Blood Donors.” With data showing that only two people in the U.K. have been infected with HIV via blood transfusions since 1985 (you know, when AIDS scares were all the rage), the ban on gay blood has long been viewed as outdated, discriminatory, and even malicious.

This is what’s meant by High-Seas. Atlantis’ Drug Cruise

by Accidental Bear

The idea of going on one of these “gay cruises” is nauseating to me in the first place ( and I don’t even get sea sick) Being stranded on a boat with screaming queens pretending to be butch with their baseball caps on, having the ” times of their lives” and what happens on Atlantis stays on Atlantis attitudes would be enough to make me jump over board. Of course with this many party gays in one place you are going to have drugs and unsafe sex ( they go hand in hand). The suspected drug dealer had 142 ecstasy pills, three grams of meth, some Special K, and $51k in cash. Recreational use? HOT MESS

Is This The On-Board Drug Dealer To Atlantis’ Biggest-Ever Gay Cruise?

via Gawker

It wouldn’t be the world’s largest-ever gay cruise without some on-board drug dealers. How else are the party bois gonna enjoy fun in the sun without their 8-balls? That’s where Steven Barry Krumholz, a 51-year-old man from West Hollywood, came in, customs officials say. Krumholz was arrested on suspicion of selling drugs to passengers aboard the Allure Of The Seas, which Atlantis leased from Royal Carribean for its 5,400-passenger sail. Cuffed and taken away from the ship while it docked in St. Thomas, Krumholz’s cabin was allegedly stocked with 142 ecstasy pills, three grams of meth, some Special K, and $51k in cash. The best part of this story is that while authorities were searching his cabin, two fellow passengers stopped by. To score.

Some sleuth-y readers have already found a “Steven Krumholz” on Facebook who lives in Los Angeles and works for the website SBKTravel.com, which makes me think perhaps this isn’t the first time Mr. Krumholz may have used travel excursions as a business opportunities?

As the website Cruise Law News noted last week, when it comes to gay cruises one of the biggest concerns isn’t stocking enough SPF and condoms, but having enough medical professionals on board to handle overdosing. Remember Spencer Yu?

But let’s not pretend Mr. Krumholz — whose crimes are only alleged at this point, everyone — might be the only drug dealer on board this Atlantis cruise. With 5,400 passengers, a good chunk of whom are there to PnP, 142 ecstasy pills and a few grams of meth aren’t going to satisfy everyone.

You May be a Porn Star and Don’t Even Know it!

by Accidental Bear

I already have a problem with the trolling guys in the mens lockers room who blow dry their hair in mirror for an hour while they stare in the shower room. What creeps me out are the guys who come to the gym just to shower. REALLY? After this article I now think maybe they’re “stopping in ” the mens locker room at gym to change their video tapes on their HIDDEN CAMERAS.

When Getting Naked In The Locker Room Means Winding Up On The Internet On Full Display

Plenty of porn sites offering purported “spy cams” of men changing in locker rooms are simply paid actors undressing and showering with full knowledge they’re being taped. And then there’s footage allegedly produced by men like these two suspects, who were arrested on charges of illegally filming men disrobing at the FX Leisure Centre in Gateshead, England, and then posting the footage online.

A hidden video camera is believed to have recorded up to 28 men in various states of undress. The filming came to light when an alleged victim was tipped off about images of his naked body appearing on a gay website. The businessman was horrified to log on and find footage showing himself getting changed at FX Leisure in Team Valley, Gateshead. He tipped off the club who then contacted police. Two men have since been arrested. One club regular said: “The man who uncovered this was a businessman who is a FX member. He was approached by two gay men who had seen him naked on a website.

“He thought it was a joke at first but then realised he had been filmed in the changing room. He went straight to the club management to complain. Some of the members are not too happy about their manhood making an unwanted guest appearance on a gay website.”

As if you weren’t self-conscious enough changing in front of other people. [Mirror]

Gay Blood Ban Unfairly Outing Cops?

by Accidental Bear

So, let me get this straight . You don’t want our rich with love blood for saving lives but you allow it to be beat out of us by fag bashings world wide. The minds ruling the world seriously need a reality check.

Is Britain’s Gay Blood Ban Unfairly Outing Cops?

Britain’s Gay Police Association, which boasts membership in all 52 of the United Kingdom’s police units, has found a novel way to attack the National Blood Service‘s prohibition on gays donating blood: the ban unfairly outs gay cops.

Like the United States and Canada, the U.K.’s national blood agency bars gay men from donating blood, with the assumption that their “lifestyles” (read: having the butt sex) puts them at greater risk of being poz, and donating tainted blood. Also like the United States and Canada, the U.K.’s National Blood Service screens all blood donations for unwanted pathogens before ever passing it off for use on patients.

In Britain, any man who’s ever had sex with another man, condom or not, is banned from donating for life. NBS maintains lifting the ban would mean a 5X increase of HIV-positive blood entering the system.

In a new push to strike down the ban, the Gay Police Association — which landed in trouble back in 2006 for claiming Christians were behind a spike in anti-gay hate crimes — mounts the argument that the ban is “homophobic in its archaic position on the life ban for gay men as donors.” By soliciting donations from those working in public service, the NBS by default calls attention to gay police officers who refuse to participate — because they simply can’t. First you tell us you don’t want our disgusting blood, and now you out us?
