!! OMG, ‘it is nothing to be ashamed of’: Sigmund Freud on homosexuality !!

gty_sigmund_freud_dm_111223_wg.jpg

“Homosexuality is assuredly no advantage, but it is nothing to be ashamed of, no vice, no degradation; it cannot be classified as an illness; we consider it to be a variation of the sexual function, produced by a certain arrest of sexual development. Many highly respectable individuals of ancient and modern times have been homosexuals, several of the greatest men among them. (Plato, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, etc). It is a great injustice to persecute homosexuality as a crime – and a cruelty, too.”

Sigmund Freud in a letter he wrote in 1935 to a mother seeking treatment for her gay son

!! OMG, Anderson answers: Does gaydar exist? !!


Anderson Cooper is so out of the closet now that he’s fielding questions from Dave Letterman about the existence of gaydar. “There’s no secret handshake,” he assures the late-night host. But, just for the record, hours after taping this interview, Cooper went to see Madonna‘s MDNA tour with his boyfriend… the one place where gaydar is sure to ping the loudest.

!! OMG, take that, Sandy: DC’s High Heels Drag Race happens at long last !!


As you might have heard, New York City’s annual Halloween parade through the West Village — a journey of pilgrimage for many of the city’s costumed gays — was canceled this year due to Sandy. But a little wind and rain was no match for the organizers of Washington D.C.’s epic High Heels Drag Race, which, though delayed by a few days, finally stomped its way down the street last night. Here’s the video to prove it.

2121_1319679318.jpg
In honor of National Coming Out Day, radio DJ Aaron Rogers came out to his Z-104 listeners in Madison, Wisconsin, telling them: “For anyone listening right now, know that you are not alone and that it’s okay to feel the way that you do. Life is very short. Know that you are loved, appreciated, and respected by more people than you realize. It really does get better, and you have my support always.” Adorbs, right? If you get lonely during those cold Wisconsin winter nights, Aaron, feel free to give me a call. Off the air, preferably.

!! OMG, block immediately: MISTER’s ‘Boyfriend Broker’ !!


MISTER — the gay dating app for “down-to-earth guys” who want an alternative to the “meat market” app world — has released its latest promo video, this time called “Boyfriend Shopping.” I think we all know the type of gay who fits this Boyfriend Broker profile — a snoot to the Nth degree, to be sure — and even if you don’t, it only takes a short stroll through Chelsea to find one.
