Vanishing Elephant Autumn/Winter 2011

by Accidental Bear

Tattooed model red-alert!

Selectism say’s “Before we saw this collection, we pegged Vanishing Elephant as a casually classic authentically made honestly sewn label. But, clearly, we’ve been wrong. This time, they’ve showcased a dip into the pattern pool with a paisley blazer and some floral numbers. Elsewhere there’s all the well done stuff we’ve known them for. But enough of our jibber jabber, take a look after the leap for yourselves.”

Yes!  I was hoping that, with the reoccurring favorite phrase of the past year, “budget cuts,” that our SF  pride committee wasn’t going to have to scrape the bottom of the pond to come up acts for this year. They went fishing and came up with our favorite lesbian actress, singer, and comedienne Sandra Bernhard.  I quote her daily , “As long as I have a face, you always have a set. Table for two!” Sandra is the bomb. I suggest arriving early to be able to get up close and personal with Ms. Bernhard.

SF is Preparing for its Next King or Queen (Mayor)

by Accidental Bear

Running for the mayoral seat in San Francisco is one spicy meatball! We are no ordinary city and have extraordinary population to please. The rest of the world watches SF under a microscope to see what boundaries we are pushing and history we are re-writing. Good luck to you all in the race. On your mark, get set, GOOOOOOOOOOOO…  Bevan I got your back~AB

LGBT themes emerge at first mayoral forum

via B.A.R

The theme of the first candidate forum in this year’s San Francisco mayoral race was public service, but that didn’t deter the nine leading candidates who took part from peppering their responses with references to LGBT concerns.

Taking the stage together for the first time, the seven men and two women running to be San Francisco’s next mayor spent 90 minutes Thursday, May 5 pitching themselves to a packed house of college students and residents gathered inside the McLaren Conference Center at the University of San Francisco, whose Leo T. McCarthy Center for Public Service and the Common Good teamed up with the group buildOn to host the forum.

While none of the questions spoke directly about LGBT issues, several candidates’ remarks included not so subtle pitches to the city’s LGBT voters for their support.

One of the most blatant references came from District 11 Supervisor John Avalos, who in his closing statement stole a famous line that the late gay Supervisor Harvey Milk used on the campaign trail back in the 1970s.

“I am John Avalos. I am a community builder and a community organizer. I want to recruit you to help rebuild San Francisco to make it a city that works better for all of us,” said Avalos, incorporating Milk’s “I am here to recruit you” riff on the anti-gay belief that homosexuals recruit youth to replenish their ranks.

Chaz Had Letterman Squirming (watch interview)

by Accidental Bear

In general gender reassignment surgery can be a graphic and brutally honest conversation some may not be ready to hear. That’s why it was fantastic for Chaz lay it all out for David Letterman without trying to sugar coat his words or terminology to make it “easier” for the audience to hear. I think Chaz should go with a large dong when he’s at the point of choosing. One small step for mankind one enormous leap for transgendered!

Chaz Bono appeared spoke with David Letterman and the host expressed discomfort when the discussion turned to gender reassignment surgery.

Becoming Chaz, a documentary about Bono’s transition, premiered Wednesday on OWN. TV Squad reports that Letterman asked him, “Are we done, surgically?”

“He must have been hoping for a ‘yes’ answer. Instead, Bono started talking about the current medical limitations of the ‘bottom surgery,’” reports TV Squad. “As he talked about penis size options and sensitivity, Letterman was visibly squirming and uncomfortable.”
