May 1st, 2015 Joseph Pedro

The Fascinator

 

Don’t fill up on too many mimosas this Saturday while you’re watching the Kentucky Derby, especially when you have a drink that’s as deliciously vibrant as all those wonderful hats. A little bit naughty and nice, the Fascinator is a well-balanced mid-day cocktail—perfect for a day at the races.

Directions

Add water, whisky, and simple syrup in a shaker with ice. Shake, shake, shake, and pour into a tall glass. Add a dash of sugar, and garnish (like a fascinator) with mint leaves.

Conrad Sewell is a dynamic new singer-songwriter from Brisbane, Australia whose debut single “Hold Me Up” was released on March 10 via Lyor Cohen’s 300 Entertainment. Entertainment Weekly calls the track an “upbeat, anthemic, just-about-impossible-to-not-get-swept-away-in pop track,” while wrote: “It’s a huge song with an instantly hummable chorus.” Conrad’s first NYC show earlier this year had Rolling Stone calling Conrad a “Rising star” and likened elements of his performance to everyone from Sam Smith, Pharrell, and Queen.

Gay Marriage Has Existed for Millennia, Expert Witness Says

Two days after the Supreme Court of the United States heard oral arguments in the marriage equality case Obergefell v. Hodges, the Human Rights Campaign joined with the legal team from Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher that challenged California’s ban on marriage equality to highlight key testimony from Hollingsworth v. Perry which shows that marriage between same-sex couples has a lengthy history, stretching back thousands of years.

“The fact that gays and lesbians form loving, committed, and stable relationships is not new,” said Ted Boutrous, partner at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher who played a critical role in the Prop 8 case. “During the Prop. 8 trial we introduced into evidence testimony from the proponents’ own experts recognizing that same-sex marriages have existed for centuries.  A decision affirming for all the freedom to marry both dignifies gay and lesbian couples and honors the history of marriage.”

During the first ever trial challenging a same-sex marriage ban – Proposition 8 in California – proponents of the discriminatory legislation called Katherine Young, a professor of religious studies at McGill University, as an expert witness.

Gay Travel: Welcome to Gay Houston, Texas

There is a billboard on a nondescript stretch of freeway just south of George Bush International Airport in Houston that reads, “Wherever you go, God listens.” This must be true because during my weekend stay in America’s fourth largest city I am wanting for great food, interesting cultural attractions and a superabundance of hot and friendly Texan men and, wouldn’t you know it, I receive all three in spades.

Houston is a curious place. The largest city in the United States without any formal zoning regulations has the disorienting effect of giving visitors the impression of a mini skyline in any direction their eyes might wander, outward from which spread a jumble of strip malls, clogged freeways, leafy green spaces, bland high rises, gated communities, cramped McMansions, and neighborhoods without central cores. Its urban plan is a tangled mess you want to straighten out like that of a child with a mop of unmanageable hair.

To show solidarity with Bruce Jenner, people around the world are painting their nails. Bruce Jenner, who came out as transgender in a recent interview with Diane Sawyer, has faced some tough critics. Paparazzi and rags have consistently poked fun of the Olympic Gold Medalist’s changes—particularly his painted nails. In the interview, Jenner told Sawyer that one of his goals after coming out is “to be able to have my nail polish on long enough that it actually chips off.” This statement prompted an Australian radio station, KIIS 106.5, to begin a campaign called #PaintYourNailsForBruce. They even went as far as setting up a mobile nail salon outside the Central Railway Station in Sydney.

Russian Lawmaker Accuses Apple of Distributing Gay Porn Thanks to the Free U2 Cover Art

While many of us found ourselves confused when a random song began to play on our iPhones, most didn’t look at their screen and freak out because of the album-cover photo, most freaked out because there was a mysterious U2 album on it. In Russia, though, the free album that was given to all iPhone users who updated their phones, was seen as violating anti-gay propaganda laws because the album cover shows the band’s drummer Larry Mullen Jr with his 18-year-old son Elvis—both shirtless.. The concern comes form Alexander Starovoitov, a member of the right-wing LDPR party, who felt that the album “Songs of Innocence” ‘corrupted’ youths. Starovoitov says he’s ready to sue Apple for breaking the controversial and discriminatory Russian anti-gay law. “I, like many Russian citizens, own an iPhone. In 2014, the band U2 forced my phone to download their new album. Their cover album depicts two men, which in my view, depicts the expression of a non-traditional sexual relationship to each other.

Members of the New York State Assembly passed a bipartisan bill to protect youths from the dangerous and discredited practice of conversion therapy. Much of the unity in the assembly is thanks to Assembly Sponsor Deborah J. Glick and Speaker Carl Heastie who moved swiftly to pass the bill through the chamber. Because of this bill’s bipartisan support and a recent statement from President Obama denouncing the practice, there is hope that the state senate will pick up the bill, and it will ultimately reach Governor Cuomo’s desk.
