Queen Elizabeth II has praised a gay charity, in what is believed to be her first ever comment about the LGBTI community. In her 62-year reign of the UK and the Commonwealth, she has never once visited or become a patron of a charity for gay rights. Words like ‘gay’, ‘lesbian’, ‘bisexual’, and ‘transgender’ have never been reported as crossing the lips of the reigning monarch. That changed last Friday. The Queen said in a special message to Gay Switchboard: “Best wishes and congratulations to all concerned on this most special anniversary”. Over the 40 years since it was established, the London Lesbian & Gay Switchboard has made a real difference day in and day out to the lives of LGB&T people. They would like to pay tribute to the volunteers and staff of the switchboard for their dedication to providing help and support to the LGB&T community and they wish them every success in the future. Way to go and all rise for the Queen!!!

Lambda Legal Tells ‘New Jersey Love Story,’ Celebrates Couple Married After 40 Years:
A new video from Lambda Legal shares the story of Cindy Meneghin and Maureen Kilian, two women who met their junior year of high school and have been together since, a total of over forty years. Cindy and Maureen were one of six couples originally contacted to join the fight for same-sex marriage as plaintiffs alongside Lambda Legal. Now, they are legally married in the state of New Jersey. In the video, the couple recounts the first time they met, their difficulty acquiring a marriage license over a decade ago, and the joy they felt as they finally signed the papers.
Congratulations to Cindy and Maureen, as well as to all the other couples benefiting from the recent same-sex marriage ruling in the Garden State!

With his 40 years old Lukas can still compete with the younger guys and looks hot as hell.
We can say now “Aloha” to gay marriages in Hawaii. The vote came after several hours of debate in a special legislative session called by Governor Neil Abercrombie. The bill will now move on to the House for debate. If any amendments are made to the bill in the House, it would have to come back to the Senate for review before moving to Gov. Neil Abercrombie for his signature. Hawaii is one of several states that have seen movement on gay marriage since.

Thousands Turn Out for LGBT Pride March in Taipei, Taiwan.
An estimated 60,000 attendees took to Taipei’s streets to celebrate what is being called Asia’s biggest gay pride event. Taiwan Pride is the biggest in Asia because of our accepting social atmosphere. Taiwan’s legislature began a review of a gay marriage bill, which has the support of 53 percent of the public, though acceptance of a gay family member remains low.Chinese families are still very traditional, people still emphasize having an heir and passing on the family name. On a cool autumn day, the 11th annual parade was marked by colorful costumes, plenty of exposed skin, musical performances and vendors lining the route to and from the city hall.
Project Runway alum Jack Mackenroth launches HIV EQUAL campaign aimed at ending HIV stigma. Jack has joined with photographer Thomas Evans and Connecticut-based World Health Clinicians (WHC) to launch a new social media campaign, “HIV Equal,” aimed at fighting the stigma surrounding HIV and encouraging people to get tested and know their status. Mackenroth, who has been HIV positive for twenty-four years says “Our goal is to photograph people from all walks of life who support ending HIV stigma, regardless of their personal HIV status. We launched the campaign with celebrities, politicians, artists and many recognizable faces in order to draw attention to our mission, but we plan to include everyone since HIV affects us all”.
More than just assigning people with labels of “negative” and “positive,” “HIV Equal” highlights what people believe to be “a positive attribute that they see about themselves”.Regardless of their HIV status everybody are equally valuable human beings.
Video ‘HIV Equal’ Campaign:
This year will be held the 85th Academy Award Ceremony called the Oscars on the 24th of February 2013. And it has a lot of PINK in it. Not only are there a lot gay connections, but the Oscars will include a special celebration of movie musicals of the last ten years.
How GAY can it get? ;-)
THE GLAMOUR!!! THE A-LIST STARS!!! THE AFTER PARTIES!!!!
These are just three of the many reasons the Academy Awards are often jokingly referred to as “the gay man’s Super Bowl.” Indeed, there are few annual events we look forward to as much as Oscar night, though many of us confess to watching as passionate for the haute couture as we do for the awards themselves. The Academy has a history of honoring actors’ portrayals of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) characters (from Hilary Swank in “Boys Don’t Cry” to Charlize Theron in “Monster” to Sean Penn in “Milk”). Last year 2012 had also a lot of Pink In it with Christopher Plummer up for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of an elderly gay man battling terminal cancer in “Beginners”. Even Hollywood hunks George Clooney (nominated for “The Descendants”) and Brad Pitt (nominated for “Moneyball”) have been outspoken in their support of marriage equality in that year on the Oscars. Let’s also not forget Glenn Close’s spellbinding turn as a woman living as a man in 19th century Ireland in the movie “Albert Nobbs.”
But this year in 2013 the Academy Award nominees have their own share of gay backstory, if not in terms of orientation, then in history. Many of the actors have formerly played gay roles and some films even had gay characters or situations in them.
Let’s check them out:
THE MASTER: Returning from Navy service in World War II, Freddie Quell (Joaquin Phoenix) drifts through a series of PTSD-driven breakdowns. Finally he stumbles upon a cult, which engages in exercises to clear emotions. He becomes deeply involved with them. After returning from the Second World War, having witnessed many horrors, a charismatic intellectual creates a faith-based organization in an attempt to provide meaning to his life. He becomes known as “The Master”. His right-hand man, a former drifter, begins to question both the belief system and The Master as the organization grows and gains a fervent following.
This chameleon Phillip Seymour Hoffman plays here a cult leader in The Master, but in 2005 he transformed into the light-voiced gay author Truman Capote, who faced his own demons while writing In Cold Blood.
LIFE OF PI: Based on the best-selling novel by Yann Martel, is it a magical adventure story centering on Pi Patel, the precocious son of a zookeeper. Dwellers in Pondicherry, India, the family decides to move to Canada, hitching a ride on a huge freighter. After a shipwreck, Pi is found adrift in the Pacific Ocean on a 26-foot lifeboat with a zebra, a hyena, an orangutan and a 450-pound Bengal tiger named Richard Parker, all fighting for survival.
(You should watch The Wedding Banquet (got nominated for Best Foreign Film in 1993) and read the Annie Proulx short story Brokeback Mountain to enjoy all the rich language and backstory missing from Lee’s adaptation)
LINCOLN NOMINATED FOR BEST PICTURE.
ABRAHAM LINCOLN: a revealing drama that focuses on the 16th President’s tumultuous final months in office. In a nation divided by war and the strong winds of change, Lincoln pursues a course of action designed to end the war, unite the country and abolish slavery. With the moral courage and fierce determination to succeed, his choices during this critical moment will change the fate of generations to come.
Yes, yes… the real-life Abraham Lincoln might have been gay or bi or whatever, but we know for a fact that the screenwriter for the film Lincoln is definitely gay. His name is Tony Kushner and he also wrote Angels in America, a Pulitzer-prize winning movie that is a must-read for anyone interested in HIV and closeted Mormons. This screenplay has come out as a book, movie and a play in many countries over the world.
LES MISERABLES: A musical adaptation of Victor Hugo’s classic novel about a recently-released prisoner named Jean Valjean struggling to survive during the French revolution
He is famous for his role as Wolverine in the X-men series. But long before Hugh Jackman stole a loaf of bread as Jean Valjean in the movie musical Les Miserables, he played the lead role in the gay Broadway musical The Boy From Oz and showed that he could act and sing!!! The gay rumours started of course that he was in the closet and the rumours kept following him and his wife continuously. She always laughed them off, but after been married to him for almost 17 years now , she is now getting annoyed with those accusations and who can blame this lucky woman….But we can keep on dreaming off course LOL
A few years before Joaquin Phoenix appeared in The Master, he grew a beard, appeared on David Letterman and incoherently declared his intention to quit acting and pursue a hip-hop career.
The completely transparent stunt was turned into a completely masturbatory “documentary” called “I’m Still Here” that contains more male frontal nudity than you’d find in some gay porn films… so there’s that and it makes you go surfing and searching on the internet, didn’t you? ;o)
Para-norman: A small town comes under siege by zombies. Who can it call? Only misunderstood local boy Norman, who is able to speak with the dead. In addition to the zombies, he’ll have to take on ghosts, witches and, worst, of all, grown-ups, to save his town from a centuries-old curse. But this young ghoul whisperer may find his paranormal activities pushed to their otherworldly limits.
Whether or not Para-Norman scores an Academy Award, it still scored a huge first by presenting an openly gay and likable jock named Mitch. This is a first and a landmark achievement for gay visibility in children’s animated movies to represent a character like this.
Daniel Day Lewis did not explore the former president’s rumored homosexuality. But in the 1985 British movie My Beautiful Laundrette, Daniel Day Lewis did explore gay love as a street punk who falls for a Pakastani laundromat owner. Things gets arousing near the end of the film and made Daniel more well-known for the gay community as an actor.
MY BEAUTIFUL LAUNDRETTE: Omar, the son of a Pakistani journalist, asks a job to his enterprising Uncle Nasser. When he brings home the drug dealing son of Nasser called Salim , they are attacked by a gang of right-wing extremists. Between them sees Omar his old childhood friend Johnny. Omar and Johnny take their old friendship back on. Omar wants to start a laundry building with the money from Salim’s drug transactions and the support of Nasser, whose daughter Tania he asks to marry him. The enterprise is undermined, however, by attacks of the punks and the lies about the nature of Omar’s relation to Johnny.
BRAVE NOMINATED FOR BEST ANIMATED FEATURE.
BRAVE: Set in Scotland in a rugged and mythical time, “Brave” features Merida, an aspiring archer and a daughter of royalty. Merida makes a reckless choice that unleashes unintended peril and forces her to spring into action to set things right. She is a Scottish princess, whose interests include archery and horse riding. She is told by her mother that her interests are not what a princess should be doing and that she has to marry. But Merida chooses to defy her mother. And when she and her mother have an argument Merida rides off and meets a witch. She asks for a spell to change her mother. And the witch gives her a cake which she gives to her mother but the change is not what she was hoping for. So she tries to find a way to fix it…..
Last but not least Disney’s Brave had a lot of rapid-fire jokes throughout the film, so you probably missed the raven’s gay aside about a prince who looked good in tight pants…..LOL. That doesn’t make the raven definitely gay, but it certainly means that he spent a second admiring a guy’s butt… This is a first-time admission for a male Disney cartoon character. Heading in the right direction for Disney movies in 2013 ;o).
Every year the Academy annual award ceremony gets more gay and we love it. Like we said it is all about the glamour, the red carpet, the A-list and the pink nature of it. The Oscars has this all and that is why millions of viewers all over the world are gonna watch this event. So bring on the cold champagne and hot popcorn off course and hop on my couch to enjoy the show to hear………………………..
Enjoy this Pink event and keep on smiling.
Have a great Pink day.
