Tom Hardy snaps at reporter who asks if he’s gay
Given that one of the characters Hardy portrays is gay, Graeme Coleman, a reporter from an LGBT publication Daily Xtra asked Hardy about his own sexuality. at a press conference at Toronto International Film Festival.
“In the film, your character Ronnie is very open about his sexuality,” asked Coleman. “But given interviews you’ve done in the past, your own sexuality seems a bit more ambiguous. Do you find it hard for celebrities to talk to media about their sexuality?”.
Anyway, the press conference exchange pretty much goes downhill from there.
“But what is your question?”
“I was wondering if you find it difficult for celebrities to talk about their sexuality.”
“I don’t find it difficult for celebrities to talk about their sexuality. Are you asking me about my sexuality?”
So, there you go. The days of Tom Hardy talking about his sexuality are apparently over.
Tom Hardy is currently promoting Legend, which includes his ambitious portrayal of both Ronnie and Reggie Kray, aka the twins who ran much of London’s criminal underworld in the ’60s.

Tyley Posey Goes Skating In His Underwear
The 23-year-old actor stripped down to his skivvies to shred at the skatepark this morning. Some are asking why he felt the need to skateboard in his underwear, but we all know the answer. He knows what he’s doing.
We can add Teen Wolf’s Tyler Posey to the list, who has long been a master of queer-baiting, and caused a bit of a sexy sensation when he stripped down to his underwear at the MTV Fandom Awards last month (pictured above).
Now we can add skateboarding in his undies and releasing footage of it on the web to the list of reasons Tyler is good at getting gay men and straight women salivating.
Posey posted a cheeky video to his Instagram for his all of his 1.6 million followers to see. “Getting in a little early morning undies sesh. Thanks Freshpark for hooking a brotha up,” he said in the caption. Of course, his fans are loving it. Just read some of those comments — the vid already has 64,000 of them.
You can take a look at the rather sexy short video below.

New pill that promise a lot! We already have results
Brand new pill designed to block HIV infections is now described as “game changer by some of the 450 gay man taking part in the Australian tirals of the drugs.
In 2012, the number of new HIV cases in Australia hit a 20 year high at more than 1,000 and since then that figure has remained virtually the same.
But the Truvada PrEP pill has offered gay men a solution to tackling the risk of HIV.
Daniel MacPhail, 32, has been taking the pill for the past 15 months as part of a trial based in Melbourne.
“This is a game changer in terms of people feeling like they have opted in and taken responsibility for themselves,” he said.
“It doesn’t rely on someone else being responsible enough to put on a condom; it doesn’t put your protection in the hands of someone else.
“I wake up in the morning, I take the pill and I’ve taken responsibility for myself.”
The pre-exposure prophylaxis pill is not a vaccine but contains antiretroviral drugs which help stop HIV negative people becoming infected.
Dr Robert Grant from the University of California is in Brisbane this week for the World HIV Congress.
Dr Grant has conducted PrEP trials in San Francisco and said the pill was having a dramatic impact on reducing HIV infections there.
“People started using it in the past two years and in those two years we’ve seen a 30 per cent decrease in the number of new cases of HIV infection,” he said.
“So we are seeing a public health impact and seeing that people can and will use PrEP when given the opportunity to do so.”

Gay sex workers demeaned and insulted by publisher of Left magazine
The humiliating op-ed was written by the the publisher of Left magazine, David Helton, after the Department of Homeland Security raided the offices of an online escort site, Rentboy.com, and arrested employees and its CEO, charging them for conspiring to promote prostitution.
Helton at first made a clarification that he is not criticizing or judging anyone’s life choices, and that he has no moral objection to prostitution, but later on in the same article continued to write some pretty judgmental things.
To save you from reading very long post, he thinks gay sex work is “shady business” and those guys on Rentboy.com should have known that this day was coming, because they were being so open regarding their chosen profession.
Two male escorts are sending the message: “So what if I want to be a hooker!”
Sean Zevran, gay porn star and escorts, responded on his blog article:
“I get it – the caricature of a prostitute, whore, hooker, or whichever derogatory term one chooses, makes us an easy target. Very few will defend what is supposedly the lowest of the lows, and words like David Helton’s that perpetuate the stigma and stereotypes of our industry are exactly why. But I challenge all of my readers to be smarter than that.”

Sir Elton John was prank called by fake “Vladimir Putin”
Russian TV pranksters reported that they did a fake call to Sir Elton John and pretending to be Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Sir Elton John said earlier this week, that he would love to talk with Russian President Vladimir Putin about his attitude over gay rights and about his anti-gay laws. He said: “I’d probably not [change his mind], but I’ll have a go! I’d love to meet him, I’d love to sit down with him and talk to him.”
The singer later claimed that he actually received a phone call from Vladimir Putin, when a post appeared on his official Instagram profile, saying: “Thank-you to President Vladimir Putin for reaching out and speaking via telephone with me today.”
When a spokesperson for President Putin denied Elton’s claim, saying that he had never spoken to the singer, and did not even received any kind of proposal for a meeting from him, public was shocked.
Russian TV pranksters, revealed that the entire drama have been a hoax, a set up by pranksters Vladimir Krasnov and Alexei Stolyarov, known as “Vova and Lexus”.
The pranksters said: “We think that Putin is unlikely to want at least in the near future to meet with him and to call, but it turned out that Elton John was waiting for that call, so immediately believed in the reality of a conversation with the people that we represent.”- according to the Telegraph.
They also added: “He said: “Thank you. You made my day. This day, and the conversation was the most and beautiful in my life.”

Man Who’ll Issue Gay Marriage Licenses and who wont listen to Kim Davis if Tells Him Not To
Kentucky clerk Kim Davis said her opposition to issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples remains firm. Just to add, she was in jail as we know.
In an interview with BuzzFeed News, Mason said that Davis’s release would have no impact on his work.
“I would issue licenses,” he said. And would he still issue licenses even if Davis demands he not upon her expected return to work either this Friday or early next week? “When Miss Davis comes back, I’ll still issue licenses,” he said, according to NBC.
Kentucky law does not require a clerk’s signature on the license to be valid but, rather, “the signature of the county clerk or deputy clerk issuing the license,” according to The New York Times. Rowan County Attorney Cecil Watkins told the Times that the licenses issued without Davis’s assent would be valid, but Davis’ attorney, Mathew Staver, said he believes licenses issued with his client’s approval would be invalid.
Staver also argued that requiring Davis to issue same-sex marriage licenses would be like forcing someone to endorse a Ku Klux Klan rally, and similar to requiring a clerk to “grant a license to engage in pornography, to grant a license to sodomize children or something of that nature … that would be harmful to the people involved in the activity.”

Australian Leader, Opposing Gay Marriage, Faces Party and Family Opposition
SYDNEY, Australia — Prime minister’s sister is feeling unhappy!!!
About two-thirds of Australians support same-sex marriage, surveys have found. As far as we know many of them are members of Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s Liberal Party — including his sister, Christine Forster, who is on Sydney’s City Council and is gay.
“I would like to get married,” said Ms. Forster, who has been engaged to her partner, Virginia Edwards, since 2013. “And at this point, I cannot.”
Mr. Abbott, a conservative leader who is a polarizing figure at the best of times, is doing badly in the polls, two years after taking office. His position on same-sex marriage is only one factor, but it is one that analysts say goes to the core of his political vulnerability.
Mr. Abbott, a Jesuit-educated Catholic who spent three years studying for the priesthood, has called same-sex marriage a “very deeply personal” issue and one “on which decent people can differ.” He has proposed that Australian voters decide the issue directly, in a referendum or a nonbinding plebiscite. He has been vague about how such a vote would be conducted, but he said that it would probably be held after the next elections.
“I’m just saying that if there is to be change, it should be change that’s owned by the people, not just by the Parliament,” Mr. Abbott said in a radio interview.
For her part, Ms. Forster sees same-sex marriage as entirely consistent with the party’s conservative values. She called it “deeply disappointing” that Liberals were not allowed to vote their conscience on the issue.
“Marriage is a special relationship, and that is why we have legislation around it,” she said. “It is the bedrock of our society. It creates family units. Small government, individual freedom and equality under law are core Liberal values.”
“The view the prime minister holds, that Tony holds, is increasingly one of a minority in Australia, and the majority will decide on this,” she said.

Gay tourists ask Spanish people to translate homophobic letter, their reactions will astound you
These reactions will definitely make your day.
When a young American couple arrived in Madrid , they looked for help ,after they made a reservation. When they asked for directions the hostel owner send them a note in Spanish.
They asked the people of Madrid what it means, and their reactions are astounding.
For it turns out the letter by the landlord is dripping with homophobic hatred. There is a threat to ‘punch their fucking face’ if he sees them kissing or holding hands in his hostel.
‘It’s better if you go to another hostel, because this one is not very good,’ one girl says, unable to tell them what the meaning of the letter actually is.
‘You go with this to the police, they can close his business,’ one man tells them. ‘This is disgusting,’ a woman says.
Made by Spain’s State Federation of Lesbians, Gays, Transsexuals and Bisexuals, the campaign is calling on people to report homophobic, biphobic and transphobic threats, insults or attacks.
