Scooter Laforge Hijacks Accidental Bear 3/14- 3/20

by Accidental Bear


I think comparing artist is for the birds but I can’t help think of the late, great Keith Haring when I gawk at Scooter Laforges art work. I reckon that he may be the Keith Harring of the modern world. Scooter  is an undeniable force and his popularity is growing exponentially.

Provokes emotion and stirs up your comfortable little world

He has conquered both coasts and now seeps into the middle of america as well. How would Kentucky handle Mr La Forge? My first thought would be that they would shit themselves then go running for the hills. If they stop kissing their cousin for a minute they might find themselves unexpectedly turned on by, Popey with a hard on. BLASPEMY! Scooters work is for the aquired taste and an advanced palate. Those that have the ability to digest unconventional art will feast on his paintings and drench themselves in his clothing. To me, Scooters art slaps me in the face and takes me out of my comfort zone. It makes me ask myself what is art ( an on going debate in my head for decades). It is clear, Scooter doesn’t do art but is ART.





“FILMATION” OIL ON CANVAS, DONATION TO SKELETOR SAVES. Skeletor Saves is a collective charity show with work from top artists based on He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. All proceeds will benefit the Ali Forney Center in New York City, a shelter for homeless gay, bi and transgendered youth.

Surviving gay spouse retains marriage rights. Amen!

Heaven forbid any of us ever have to deal with such things. But the reality is , that this is reality. It is comforting to knows that our backs will be covered and we, as gay people will have the same respect as all human being in such dire times to have our relationship recognized for what they are , LOVE and “MARRIAGE” ( just like the straights but better. Check the statistics) .


NY court rules that surviving gay spouse retains marriage rights

A New York appeals court ruled that the survivor of a gay marriage could receive the inheritance from his male spouse on Thursday, even though New York does not yet allow legal gay marriages to be performed in the state.

J. Craig Leiby and H. Kenneth Rantfle were legally married in Canada in 2008. Three years ago, Rantfle died of lung cancer and left the majority of his estate to Leiby. But Rantfle’s brother contested the will, saying that Leiby’s inheritance would violate New York law, according to CBS New York.

Gay marriages are illegal in New York, but the state recognizes legal out of state and out of country marriages; therefore the court ruled that Leiby is legally entitled to the inheritance as a surviving spouse.

Lambada Legal said the decision was the first of its kind at an appellate level in New York, according to the Huffington Post.

Lambada’s senior counsel member Susan Somer said the decision “puts to rest the idea that out-of-state marriages of same-sex couples could be vulnerable to attack.”

Empress of SF. Why Should I Care?

by Accidental Bear

What is this Empress thing all about anyhow? I’ve been attacked on corners on 18th and Castro by screaming drag-queens and supporters holding signs, ” Vote for so and so! VOTE!” It all most sounds like a drunken street fight the noise and energy level is so loud. I roll my eyes and move along. Usually I am purposely dodging drunks on the side walk , completing a few errands and run from the Castro ( I work in the neighborhood and at the end of the day, although I love the Castro, I need OUT!) My cynical self wonders what kind of attention these men in wigs want now and why are they running for the position of this thing called “Empress”. What’s their purpose? Why should I care? This is why…

So I’ve done some research and found out their whole purpose in life is not just to annnoy me.


The Imperial Council of San Francisco, Inc.

Our intent is to allow membership to any individual or organization. Though our primary membership is drawn from the LGBT culture we believe everyone has the right of inclusion and the desire to help their community.

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, 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.

Hit the Pavement TODAY to Support Same Sex Marriage SF

Protest In Support Of Same Sex Marriage Planned At SF City Hall Monday



Marriage equality supporters throughout the Bay Area will be gathering in San Francisco and Martinez on Valentine’s Day to protest the state’s ban on same-sex marriage.

Several dozen same-sex couples, accompanied by supporters, will be asking for marriage licenses at City Hall as a way to expose the discrimination organizers say Proposition 8 re-imposed on Californians.

Proposition 8, enacted by voters as a state constitutional amendment in November 2008, mandates that “only marriage between a man and a woman is valid in California.”

I am here to be a myth buster! There is indeed an entire webside dedicated to the love and appreciation on hairy backs. Well, if they turn you on or they’re your fetish , or perhaps you just need a fuzzy place to lay your head, I found the place for you

“Confessions of a Hairy Backed Man”

‘Fur Back’ T-Shirts Just in Time for Spring

Are you a furback and proud of it? Why not advertise your hyper-hirsute status with one of these great new T-shirts? The actual text of the shirt reads “Fur is Back” but the “is” is cleverly minimized so that the shirt reads “FUR BACK” from a distance — thumbs up for putting the words on the back of the shirt, too.

Comes in a wide rainbow of colors and in all sizes, can be ordered online

Of course, if you really want to broadcast that you’re a furback, you take your T-shirt off, but this is the next best thing if you’re cold or shy.

(Personally, I kind of love the term “furback” — in fact, it might be my favorite term for my people.) Posted by HairyBackedMan
