The Celluloid Closet is a good review of gay movies from the past.

Gregg Araki's "Mysterious Skin" is an interesting comtemporay gay film based on the novel by Scott Heim. It looks at young gays and sexual abuse from a pseudo-alien abduction film scenario. Heim grew up in Kansas and went to KU. The film is set in the midwest and NYC. Gregg Araki's movies are intereresting since they give gay consciousness a twist and a snap as far as mixied audiences are concerned. Gay bildungsroman out of the closet one might say.

No, actually there were over 3 million people; there were 3 million in the parade last year already and they wanted to make sure there would be more than 3 million this year...

But you know ? This is traditionally one of the happiest events in São Paulo and we never have any serious problems cuz people really go to very pretty and modern Paulista Avenue with the sole purpose of having FUN ... Brazilians LOVE -- and certainly know how -- to party, you know...  Cheesy

Great news for those who live and have married in MA.  Here is NH even among repukes, gay issues are on the bottom of their list of concerns according to a new survey.  People here really don't care.  Of course, there are some who want to make it an issue, but it isn't.

Saminnh:

Answer me this.  Are you, or are you not a registered sex offender?

As a striaght long-time NH resident, I just want to say I'm thrilled by the civil unions law (and also, as a former MA resident, by the legislature's vote there).

New Hampshire has long been somewhat stereotypically viewed as very conservative, but the conservatism here has always been largely economically based. In my experience, most people here are rather tolerant of others. (Of course, one might say that true conservatism, as opposed to right-wing fanaticism, would encourage just such a world view.) I'm always glad to have my impression corroborated by others who may be better qualified to judge than I am.

Nice to see New England leading the way in doing the right thing.

I'm guessing that you and Saminnh sodomize each other on a regular basis.  I will go on to assume that Sammy boy is the catcher.

Looks like NH is gradually turning into Brown Town USA.

Detective Winslow—you call yourself a detective?

You couldn’t even find your own asshole if you looked for it.

How can you tell, judging from typed words, that someone is a fag?

When they write the word asshole in italics!
