2 Gay Men Attacked Sunday Night Near Hawthorne Bridge; Portland Oregon

by Accidental Bear

These events happen far to often. We are encouraging LGBT to come out of the closet, but this would scare anyone back into the safety of the closet over getting your ass beat. Wounds will heal, but these two young are scarred for life. So, sad.

via blogout.justout.com

Brad Forkner, 23, and Christopher Rosevear, 25, were walking across the Hawthorne Bridge hand-in-hand after taking in an evening show at Darcelle’s Sunday, May 22, when they were assaulted by three men, Forkner says.
Bias crimes detective Kevin Warren said officers responded to an assault near the Eastbank Esplanade that night around 8:35 p.m. He could not confirm that the incident was being treated as a bias crime because he had not yet interviewed the victims. According to Forkner, however, officers at the scene said the circumstances suggested a bias crime.
“They deemed it a bias crime seeing how the men followed us for so long, nothing was stolen, and there seemed to be no other provocation than Christopher and I holding hands,” Forkner said. He added that the alleged attackers were yelling at them during the assault, but they couldn’t make out what the men were saying — Rosevear thought they could have been speaking another language, such as Russian.

Friends and coworkers from Cascade Aids Project — where Forkner works as Pivot Center Coordinator — are currently supporting Forkner and Rosevear with a Facebook campaign called “Holding Hands, In Solidarity,” encouraging people to upload photos of them holding hands.

All Eyes On: One Day in the Life Of… photographer Tim Hailand

by Accidental Bear

I know gobs of talented people oozing with with creativity and ideas ( most of them tortured and some kind of brilliant mania). The problem I see is that this monster needs to be channeled in order for success ( Yes, the idea of success can be debated for a life time) The most genius artist I know have never had a show but have a basement full of master pieces. If done by a business minded human, they would be “rich” and famous from their torture represented on a canvass or by sculpture.

Photographer Tim Hailand has been able to conquer this artistic monster in him and reaps its  rewards. You can see it in his amazing photographs.

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

By Advocate.com Editors

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.

All Eyes On: Photographer Richard Renaldi

by Accidental Bear

Richard takes the ordinary and makes it extraordinary with a swipe of his lens. He has inspired some of my own work with our similar visions of what to capture. I had the pleasure of hanging out with Richard and his boyfriend ( drop dead gorgeous handsome fella who appears with Richard in a series he does of them posed in hotel rooms around the world/ Hotel Room  Portraits) on the beach on Wakiki, HI. Knowing of Richards talent I knew he would have equipment with him to snap anything he caught worthy. So,  I slid into pose after accidental pose on my towel hoping for him to think I was ordinary/ photo worthy. I took the opportunity as well when exiting the ocean and I flung my hair from side to side as if I were Bo Derek in hopes to make an impression on his lens.

Tom Ford, Heterophobic

by Accidental Bear
Tom Ford

Image via Wikipedia

Just because you are queer as a $2 bill doesn’t mean you have good taste, can design yourself out of a K-hole or superior in the garment world, but Tom Ford says so. Lets think about this. I mean, we (queers) are light in our loafers, ANAL about detail and sensitive to the color blind ( I can pull anything out of my ass), right? But to DEBUNK this idea of Toms, take a stroll through San Franciscos Castro District or down Christopher Street in  New York and you will see (CODE RED) total fashion disasters. Hello, gay brother the 90’s wants its style back and the 80s is sadly missing its hair ( but not in a ironic way).

Tom Ford: Gay Designers Are Superior

By Advocate.com Editors

TOM FORD X390 (GETTY) | ADVOCATE.COM

Never one to give a boring interview, Tom Ford recently explained toInterview magazine why gay men are superior in the world of high fashion.

“I think I detach the physical from the spiritual. It’s my business to make a woman or a man beautiful, and I’m working with a model in a fitting, and I’ve objectified them to the point that they become an object,” Ford told artist John Currin, whose wife, Rachel Feinstein, recently modeled in an intimate show of Tom Ford’s return to women’s wear design.

“They’re something that I’m modeling or shaping or sculpting, but I’m very aware that even though I make them physically beautiful, their soul and personality and character is somewhat detached from that,” Ford said. “It’s great when you have a combination of the two — that’s what makes a true beauty. Some people are physically beautiful but yet they’re completely uninteresting, and thus they’re not beautiful. I detach the two. … That’s why I think gay men make better designers.”

Lets Talk About Locker room Etiquette ( Behind the Scenes of Gay)

by Accidental Bear

I have had discussions on this topic and usually find myself on the other side as everyone else. Lets have a grown up talk about gay mens behavior in the locker room. Putting internal homophobia, body issues and the excuse that men are just animals and need sex aside. What are your observations in the locker room ( No, this isn’t going to be a discussion about size queens) Often I have found myself  irriatated by the complete lack of discretion by my gay brothers. Most people are there to work out, shower and get on with their business. On the other hand some guys stand in mirror and shave for an hour , while their naked peters press against the sink ( not sanitary, no debate), other walk around with bright red peters they have obviously lathered up far to long. Just because Im gay ,  I have to be ok that the guy in shower across from me is making tweaker gestures at me with his face  while he jacks off 4 feet from me? As an “adult” gay male, I know sex happens in ALL SORTS of places( I’ve tried most) including gym steam room amongst a long list. I’ve been told, ” This is what happens at a gay gym”. This furiates me because , its a gym with regular gym fees, weight machines and treadmils, NOT gay machines, gay fees ( unless they are sneaking them in, hmmm), gay showers etc.

I believe in the utimate disretion. So imagine, after an intense , focussed work , a gym member  taking a quick rinse to get back to work, is stalked and RUDELY gawked ( not just a friendly, Hey nice ass gesture with his eyes) at by a  troll of sorts ( of any age or race)  jacking off using  free soap provided by gym, and then after not taking the hint of his  shower mate  for being NOT  interested, the shower cruiser doesn’t disarm and keeps masturbating. Who would be at fault if the stroker got punched in the face?

Many of the places I have lived across the US I encountered  bizarre incidences in steam rooms where a guy has taking the liberty to make awkward advances without thought or concern at who is around. This is not being prude and I am all about sexual liberty and freedom, but at some point, common sense, compassion of those around you, common decency all need to be considered.

Now, how do you feel gays?
