!! OMG, Clearly Canadian: Vancouver organization ‘RainCity’ provides kinder response to other cities’ mean homeless ‘repellents’ !!

This is nice! RainCity, an organization out of Vancouver Canada which provides specialized housing and support services for people living with mental illness has done the OPPOSITE of what other bitch cities have been doing by setting up things like metal spikes and detterants for homeless people around the city (simply hoping they will just disappear I guess…) and the organization has built bus stop ad signs which double as extra shelter!

Less than 6% of the homeless are homeless by choice, which is why organizations like RainCity provide specialized housing and support services for people living with mental illness, addictions and other services. Their goal is to find solutions to end homelessness in a manner that’s appropriate and and environmentally supportive.

Big-ups to Raincity for working towards lending that extra hand rather than shoving sharp spikes into people where they sleep! Check out more images from the project below!

!! OMG, Pussy whipped! Pussy Riot attacked by whip-wielding Russian cossacks near Sochi Olympics !!

Nadezhda “Nadia” Tolokonnikova and Maria “Masha” Alyokhina
are the brave, recently released members of Pussy Riot who have made headlines around the world for standing up to Russian President Vladimir Putin, and spreading the dismal truth about their Russian government.
New footage shows Russian cossacks attacking the girls with whips, pepper-spray and last but not least — their fists — during a set-up for one of Pussy Riot‘s non-violent protests at a public plaza in Sochi. We’re not sure they could have asked for a better backdrop to highlight the attacks, as the Sochi 2014 logo hovers in the back the entire time. Check out the disturbing (NSFRussia) attacks below.

!! OMG, good news, stoners: “Doritos Loaded” test product spotted in Washington D.C. !!

This truly has been been a great past year for Doritos lovers, and it looks as if things are only about to get better. Not only was the world blessed with the gift of Ketchup Doritos (in Canada) and Doritos Loco, but now there are baked, cheesey whispers that a new “test product” is being tested in Washington D.C.!
Kevin Cobb recently snapped these top-secret images of “Doritos Loaded” — a mozzarella-stick-esque Dorito that tasted like it was dipped in queso! When asked to comment on such important matters, a 7-Eleven rep confirmed:

Doritos Loaded is “a product that is in test,” although she was tight-lipped about giving out further details. “It’s just too soon to really talk about it,” she said. But an employee at the Vermont Avenue store said the snack became available about two weeks ago, and that she knows of two other 7-Eleven stores in Washington, D.C. also selling them.

Check out some more images of the actual nuggets of joy after the jump! Would you buy these on your stoner mission to the corner store? I only let purely-clean, natural, organic, gluten-free things touch my lips, so my answer would be a resounding YES!

!! OMG, congratulations: Missouri defensive linesman Michael Sam comes out in advance of 2014 NFL Draft !!

Michael Sam, a guy who plays sports n’ stuff — professionally — came out this week to his entire team, and then the entire world!
Michael is the defensive linesman for the University of Missouri football team and is expected to be picked up in the first rounds of the NFL draft. I mean, that takes balls to come out before you’ve been drafted, especially considering how hetero football usually presents itself. (What?! Don’t laugh! It’s super butch!)

“I’m not afraid to tell the world who I am. I’m Michael Sam: I’m a college graduate. I’m African American, and I’m gay. I’m comfortable in my skin.”

Congratulations to Michael! A very brave thing for him to do, considering his circumstances and his industry, and it’s really good for the gays. I mean, we could always use another tight end or wide receiver, but a defensive linesman will just have to do! Check out Michael’s interview with the NYT below!

!! OMG, shake a fist: ANNIE debuts Putin protest video with track “RUSSIAN KISS” !!

Norwegian pop singer Annie may sometimes present herself like a tiny mouse with a soft delivery, but her new track and video protesting Vladimir Putin‘s anti-gay laws in Russia — are anything but placid!
Annie and producer Richard X took a cue from producer Lil’ Louis‘ classic house track “French Kiss” on this, then rinsed her protest in ACID, and shot a video for it all featuring a big homo kiss-up! A little about the video from Annie’s Official Site:

The Winter Olympics are not just skating styles, waxing techniques and jump lengths. The Winter Olympics are also deep emotions: interpersonal, national, and global. Millions of TV-viewers are witness to these emotions. Usually, they find their expression in embraces and kisses. You can observe this at the finishing area and during the medal ceremony — teammates embracing each other, winners kissing their partners.
This may be difficult when the Olympic Games take place in Sochi in February. As we know, Vladimir Putin has introduced laws prohibiting gays and lesbians to show their love in public in Russia. Furthermore, it is prohibited to talk positively about homosexuality in public. This is the reason why an increasing number of leaders worldwide have decided to boycott this year’s Olympics. In Norway, the political leadership has rejected calls to remain at home. As a great power in winter sports Norway is in a unique position to flex its muscles in a situation like this. This could have been an occasion for Norway to stand up for the fundamental right to express your feelings towards the one you love.
In Norway, many gays and lesbians — and not only gays and lesbians — have reacted against this. One of them is one of Norway’s best-known elite artists: The New York-based artist Bjarne Melgaard (http://stabfrenzy.com/). Therefore, at the beginning of December, together with the Norwegian songwriter and performer Annie (http://anniemelody.com/), he took the initiative to Russian Kiss: a short movie about the right to kiss one’s beloved — regardless of sexual orientation — wherever one likes.

Check out the video below, (which also happens to feature Toronto photographer Petra Collins, the woman behind American Apparel’s controversial “Period Power” t-shirt). RUSSIAN KISS is available for purchase today, and a portion of the iTune proceeds go to gay rights advocacy non-profit AllOut.org!
