!! OMG, What a Tyrade: North Korean Tyra-Hating Propaganda !!

Ok, well erm, I can’t claim that I didn’t make comment on Tyra’s sparkly Vaseline frenzy situation, although whatever I had to say was masked with my giggle-voms at how hilarious the whole debacle seemed; tinted with slight sparkly-lube jealousy at not getting any…but that’s the extent of judgements on her, I like her a lot, and love that her show is a portal for more André Leon Talley in my life.
However, almost more insane than all the other western-hating claims that have come from North Korea the last few years, is their vehement repugnance for Miss Banks:

“she now has a talk show where she pretends to be concerned about peoples problems and society in general, even though she has no qualifications to do this…The audience doesn’t question this charade but instead it willingly feeds into her need to talk about herself”

I love that this report speaks of the audience as a SINGLE-MINDED DRONE ENTITY, maybe North Korea just needs a big box of Tyra’s sparkly “biggest beauty secret eveeeeeer”, maybe they too are just a tad jealous that they didn’t get it first time around?!
I can relate to that!

!! OMG, TRANS INFERNO: The Knife, ‘Full of Fire’ !!

This is the best thing to happen since Buffy the Vampire Slayers Yummy Sushi Pyjamas!
We showed you The Knife’s album teaser a few weeks ago and got really excited about their gendy~bendy looks on the play swings. Well here’s the video for the first single off the new album. It’s called Full of Fire’ and is a mini movie made by Stockholm/Berlin-based queer artist Marit Östberg, who had this to say on the project:

“‘Full of Fire’ consists of a network of …losses, and promises. Fates that at first sight seem isolated from each other, but if we pay attention, we can see that everything essentially moves into each other…Our actions create reality, we create each other…being extensions, of one another. We will never stop longing for each other, and for something else.”

-or as Gerri Halliwell once put it “Girl Power!”
The track is fantasmical, it tranasitions into like an old Acid track[x] or one of those super trippy Industrial tunes with the voice in it that tells you to rise up and fight against the system. P.s. the antidote to ‘the system’ -I think- is GIRL POWER..I think.

!! OMG, Father of the Brides: Chanel’s haute couture lesbians !!

On Tuesday, less than 24 hours after the president’s call for equality, Karl Lagerfeld sent models Lindsey Wixon and Cara Delevigne Kati Nescher and Ashleigh Good [along with his godson Francois Hollande] down Chanel’s PFW Runway in matching wedding gowns.
It is traditional for Couturiers to complete their show by sending a wedding gown down the catwalk, so Lagerfeld’s gesture was an obvious nod towards marriage equality at a time of large Catholic protests calling for a referendum on the same-sex marriage bill that the French government has promised to its citizens.
When asked about such contention, Lagerfeld suggested:

“People who consider marriage a sacred religious union can continue that tradition in their churches, temples, synagogues and mosques, but all religions should tolerate gay marriage.”

!! OMG, executive realness: OUT TV’s ‘Ladyboys’ !!

Yollada Suanyot_300512afamilyDSChuyengioi1_9ed8f.jpg
I started watching OUT.TVs ‘Ladyboys’ series yesterday morning and I’ll be watching the second half tonight. Being a British documentary, they tend to edit it as though they are talking about gap-year kids at an Ibiza foam party, but still I find some of the interviews are quite lovely.
My favourite [not a ladyboy, she’s a woman, since 19 years old] lady is Yollada Suanyot [pictured]. She serves up EXECUTIVE REALNESS 24/7 and she’s stunning, and I’d buy all that QVC-style tack she’s selling if she told me too. It’s disappointing to hear that currently, Thai law does not permit even those who have had gender-reassignment surgery to obtain legal status as woman:

“My mind is not wrong, my mind is correct, but my body is wrong…don’t ask me about the thing that makes my heart hurt”

Uuuuurrggghhh…that makes my heart hurt too : (
Hop down below to watch parts 1 & 2

!! OMG, WE defo DO: Campaign for Southern Equality !!

“The South will rise again”, no I’m not talking about crazy Fox-fed Confederates with bayonets, this is the Campaign for Southern Equality’s WE DO Campaign.

I am lucky enough to live some place where my marriage is recognised, so it breaks my crumbly, flakey heart to see them old lez-ladies walk up to the counter and get denied their marriage license. It’s simply not fair. I think it’s inhumane treating gays like they are second-class citizens in the twenty-first century.

You can send a wee message of support right HERE…and hopefully some time soon they’ll be able to go back to the counters and say “WE DO!” [or “we doodoo” if they get real excited and can’t quite get the words out]
