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.

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.

California Man Swept Away by Tsunami

by Accidental Bear

Horrible tragedy but you can’t say you weren’t warned. Mother nature is all powerful and not to be underestimated.

The Japanese earthquake is having truly global effects. Rescue workers are searching for a California man who was washed into the sea by a tsunami when he was trying to take pictures of the incoming wave in northern California. Four others were swept off an Oregon beach earlier today, but managed to make it back to shore. The lesson for people living in beachfront communities on the West Coast? Stay inside and watch it on TV.

Gay-for-Pay Porn Star’s Wife Talks

by Accidental Bear

I stand strong believing that if a “straight” guy does “gay for pay” porn he HAS to at least be the slightest amount of gay to 1, even toy with the idea of gay porn, 2 be able to keep his peter raging to penetrate the oh so willing recipients. A 100% straight man would turn to panhandling before he would get his bum rear ended. But PLEASE keeping using these “gay 4 pay” actors, becaue if you snoop at my computers history I am a fan a such shenanigans !

Gay-for-Pay Porn Star’s Wife Talks

By Advocate.com Editors

REECE RIDEOUT X390

Gay-for-pay porn star Reese Rideout, also known as Nick Dent, and his wife Becki talk about their comfort level with his career choice, saying that the decision comes down to money, in the new U.K. issue of Marie Claire.

Boy Culture reports on the couple’s interview, where Nick is featured under the pseudonym Reece Jacobs.

“Now, his focus is gay porn, which, despite what people think, I’m more comfortable with,” said Becki, who like Nick is from Oregon. “I can accept him being with other men more easily than other women. He got into it after he was offered $1,500 simply to masturbate on a gay website called randyblue.com. Straight porn only pays men $300 a scene, but gay porn pays up to five times as much. I don’t care what people think. Reece isn’t gay and I’m just happy he isn’t filming with other women.”

Nick added, “I can have sex at work without thinking about the other person because I’m genuinely straight. But gay sex is tough if you’re straight. The first time I shot a scene with another man, it was oral sex, and I couldn’t keep it up because I wasn’t turned on. Now I watch footage of women or think about Becki when I’m filming. Working in gay porn is better all round. I get paid more and treated with respect.”
