RIP BRENDAN BURKE

by Accidental Bear

Take a moment to remember Fellow human being that left this world early.


A year ago today the world lost Brendan Burke, son of Toronto Maple Leafs GM Brian. Brendan was killed in a car crash on a snowy highway in Indiana.
Brendan will be memorialized at a game tonight with the team he worked for, Miami University, and the University of Michigan, with Miami wearing special jerseys in honour of their former student manager.
Just mere months before his death, the 21 year old took it upon himself to open the door to future athletes. Brendan, with his father by his side, came out to the media and announced that he was gay. This brought a lot of attention to himself, and brought the topic of homosexual athletes into the spotlight. This is a battle that Brian Burke, and many athletes through the NHL will continue to fight in spite of the loss of a brave young man.
Brendan Burke is a pioneer in sports, and will be remembered for his bravery. His life was short, but he made the most of it, and years from now, his courage will mark the beginning of a new era of not just hockey, but sports in general.

Do you Really Wanna Hurt Me Boy G? Re-Unite Now, or , or…

by Accidental Bear

 

I have a confession to make. Back in the early 90’s when I was a wee young thing sporting orange spit curls and platform sneakers I PEED AT A URINAL NEXT TO BOY GEORGE AT SOME RANDO NIGHT CLUB! Touch me if you want, or I’ll sign your panties, true story. I did not gawk over and down to see if in fact he did have a pecker. But unlike those doubters out there, I BELIEVE THAT YOU DO HAVE MALE EQUIPMENT. YOU’RE WELCOME.

Boy George said that his former romance with Culture Club bandmate Jon Moss will not stand in the way of the group’s highly anticipated reunion in 2012.

According to Digital Spy, “The singer, who secretly dated drummer Jon Moss during the band’s peak, said the pair now have a ‘healthier’ relationship, after Moss married a woman and went on to have children.”

The Karma Chameleon singer told The Sun, “Oh no. We’re really good mates. Jon has got kids now — beautiful kids and we’re definitely over each other.”

Culture Club plans to reunite for a U.K. tour to celebrate the band’s 30th anniversary next year, with a comeback album produced by Mark Ronson.

Clay Aiken Goes All Violent Jazz Hands on Doubters

by Accidental Bear

I can relate, sorta. I never had a coming out party or ran to the top of a mountain and screamed, IM HERE  IM QUEER, GET USED TO IT! Nor have I had it published in any magazines. I was always the little weirdo, queer kid that people just called gay because of my difference in appearance. So, when I started sleeping with men ( many many men), it wasn’t a shocker to anyone.

Clay Aiken Was Never in the Closet

CLAY AIKEN X390 (FAIR) | ADVOCATE.COM

Pop singer Clay Aiken says, “There was this misconception that I was not out,” in an interview with The Georgia Voice.

While promoting his Tried and True tour, Aiken, who officially admitted he was gay in People magazine in 2008, was asked about the obligation of gay performers to come out. “I was in Spamalot and everyone knew, but I don’t necessarily want to sit at a table with strangers and tell them,” he said. “When you come out, you do it with people you are comfortable with.”

The singer says that while his coming-out may have surprised a few people, it had no adverse effect on his career.

“I definitely do see the liberation and understand the rationalization of people wanting me to be out,” he says. “On the other hand, I wouldn’t say that coming out has made me happier because that implies I was not happy before and I was.”

The Voice writes that Aiken is now comfortable discussing being gay and mentions that he even went to D.C. to speak at a Capitol Hill briefing on antigay bullying at the end of last year.
