High School Principal Suspends Sean Cody Model For Gay Porn Work, Won’t Let Him Graduate

High School Principal Suspends Sean Cody Model For Gay Porn Work, Won’t Let Him Graduate | Gay News | Scoop.it

According to an agitated poster in Reddit's "gaybros" forum, high school senior and Sean Cody model "Noel" has allegedly been suspended and will not graduate this year after several of his bareback flicks found their way onto the principal's desk.


The poster, who identifies himself as the cousin of Noel’s classmate, claims the budding gay porn model (and certified hottie) has been “severely bullied” since fellow classmates discovered his side job and instead of helping, school administrators have suspended him for 10 days for “causing a campus disturbance.”


His suspension will allegedly lead to “an automatic failure from absences,” and he will not be able to graduate come June.

Why Do So Many Gay People Smoke?

Why Do So Many Gay People Smoke? | Gay News | Scoop.it

If anyone has a reason to smoke, gay people do. Gays have higher rates of PTSD,depression, and anxiety—all of which lead to the urge for a cigarette. And a tragically high number of gay people are told that they are diseased, aberrant, intrinsically disordered throughout their youths, fostering a self-loathing that can lead, if not to suicide, than to nearly suicidal activities.


It’s dismaying but not surprising, then, to learn from a new study that a startling 33 percent of LGBTQ people smoke—a rate 68 percent higher than the general U.S. population. Even worse, the LGBTQ community spends an astonishing $7.9 billion every year on tobacco, about 65 times the amount of money spent on all LGBTQ lobbying. And the numbers carry a dark footnote: HIV-positive smokers lose an average of 12.5 years off their lives, compared with 5.1 years lost for HIV-positive nonsmokers.

Gay Porn Studio Digitally "Removes" Condoms In Newest Film

Gay Porn Studio Digitally "Removes" Condoms In Newest Film | Gay News | Scoop.it

The adult-movie industry has long grappled with the issue of condoms, especially gay porn companies. Even studios that want to be socially responsible claim their audiences gravitate toward bareback videos. (Michael Lucas, long a critic of bareback videos recently filmed his first condom-free movie.)


Of course there are those studios that remain steadfast in their commitment to condom-only videos. One of them, Falcon Studios, has just come up with an interesting strategy:  They’ve digitally removed the condoms from their newest film, California Dreamin’ 1, giving them the appearance of bareback sex.

Were Jared Leto's and Michael Douglas’ Golden Globes Speeches Homophobic?

Were Jared Leto's and Michael Douglas’ Golden Globes Speeches Homophobic? | Gay News | Scoop.it

A more generous viewer might argue that awards speeches are heady, rushed events—linguistic precision and political thoughtfulness are surely a challenge in the midst of required thank-yous and a pushy orchestra. Fair enough. But watching these clips again and imagining how easy it would have been for Douglas and Leto to get it right, I’m beginning to feel like the privilege of playing a queer person in an era in which it increasingly affords prestige should come with a small burden: In the event that you get accolades for your professional “bravery,” make sure you have some basic notes prepared that won’t mock the very people of whom you’re supposedly a champion.

What Does Trans* Mean, and Where Did It Come From?

What Does Trans* Mean, and Where Did It Come From? | Gay News | Scoop.it

It’s widely accepted that computer-mediated communication—emailing, texting, sexting, commenting, chatting, and so on—has changed the way we speak, even when we’re away from the keyboard. But a new label being embraced online by some transgender people may represent a linguistic first: borrowing from computer language itself.

The label in question is trans*, and the asterisk stems from common computing usage wherein it represents a wildcard—any number of other characters attached to the original prefix.

Francesca Cook's curator insight, January 22, 2014 10:10 AM

"I once had a lover that, on the most ordinary of days, out shopping for underwear, looked at my reflection in the mirror and said, 'I love the boy in you, and I love the girl in you, and everything in between.'"

 

So begins this slam poem by Dia Davina. It's poems like this one which make me remember why I love poetry, why it is one of the most powerful vehicles of truth and meaning. Davina takes a subject that's surrounded by a great deal of misunderstanding and gives it great clarity. She captures the struggle of the LGBT community and exposes its essence to people outside of the community. She makes a selective experience a human experience: the will to love and be loved, and the universal uncertainty of understanding yourself. That is the power of great poetry. That is the kind of poetry I want to write

Sounds like money well spent to me.
