This has to be the gayest Christmas video ever!
Moments after I wrote a post for LGBT for Obama about John McCain saying that he had never heard the acronym “LGBT” my friend Bil Browning of Bilerico posted this video of Margaret Cho detailing the history of the U.S. military’s planning for a “gay bomb.”
What, you may ask, is a “gay bomb?” Well, silly, it is a bomb that when dropped on the enemy would turn them into feather boa wearing, Barbra Streisand loving, Pride parade marching, mimosa sipping, finger snapping homosexuals.
I, and Margaret, kid you not. This was something that the Pentagon considered spending $7.5 million dollars to develop.
Were the World Mine may be the hot new gay film that we have been waiting all year for.
In the film Timothy escapes the the narrow-minded confines of his small town high school through musical daydreams. When a teacher assigns him the role of Puck in A Midsummer’s Night Dream Timothy discovers a recipe for a purple love pansy which he uses to turn much of the town’s population gay. In the process Timothy wins the heart of the rugby playing boy of his dreams.
Too many films of late aimed at gay men have been overly formulaic with their After School Special-like earnestness and devoid of the passion and innovation that marked the New Queer Cinema of the 1990s.
Hopefully Were the World Mine marks not simply a return to that heyday of gay film, but a leap forward in telling stories about gay men that celebrate gay sexuality and our lives with intelligence, creativity and honesty.
Were the World Mine recently won the Outfest 2008 Grand Jury Award for outstanding U.S. dramatic feature.
The boys at Life Lube, the smart and sexy blog covering all things gays, are at it again.
For months, they have been rattling the digital cages to generate a community wide discussion about what gay men need to realize our inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Now they are kicking it up a notch with a fascinating series of guest posts from activists across the country who lay out their visions for a gay men’s health agenda.
It has been a while since I have post a new installment of 31 Flavors. To make it up to you, I give you Tiago Botega.

The ever enterprising guys behind the gay men’s health blog Life Lube are not sitting around waiting to see who the next president is going to be. They are busy putting together a document of what our federal elected officials can do to improve the health and well-being of the GBT men’s community.
In order to get the best possible ideas, they need your help.
