If you’ve been on the internet lately, you’d have noticed that the latest advertisement to stir a bit of a buzz online is the latest ad for the BBC One channel. In it, a gay couple kisses under the mistletoe, before ending with the channel’s current Christmas slogan “For the moments we share… One-ness.”

The gay kiss only takes up about two seconds in the almost minute and a half video, which also shows a group of Santa’s taking part in a run, teenagers sledding down a hill, and various images of people celebrating the Christmas season. Despite its shortness, the kiss has drawn varied reactions, from people complaining that it’s the BBC “over-representing gay and mixed-race relationships” to people defending it, saying “It’s not political correctness. It’s just real life. It’s a nice festive trailer.”

While it’s the latest ad to draw eyeballs to it because of gay content, it’s only the latest in a year that has seen a lot of gay representation in television commercials. As the year draws to an end, here’s just a sampling of the gay-themed ads we’ve been treated to in 2016.

  1. Tylenol’s #HowWeFamily Campaign

This ad, which began airing in February this year, was directed by Academy Award winner Dustin Lance Black. The advertisement features a same-sex prom couple and two gay dads, and was aimed at celebrating the diversity of modern families.

2. Nabisco’s #ThisIsWholesome Campaign

Nabisco’s “Wholesome” commercial for Honey Maid and Teddy Grahams featured a pair of gay father with their children, interspersed with the family made up of a tattooed father, an interracial couple, and a single father. Famously, the ad was called out by One Million Moms as promoting homosexuality, and that it showed “disrespect of millions of American families by supporting the homosexual agenda.”

3. Nordstrom’s “Ultimate Wedding Party”

Before the upscale clothing chain came up with this ad, Nordstrom had already expressed its support of same-sex marriage, which had not been deemed legal by the Supreme Court at the time. The “Ultimate Wedding Party” ad featured pairs of heterosexual and same-sex couples partying to a song by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, both of whom are also supportive of LGBTQ rights.

4. Campbell’s Soup “Made for Real, Real Life” campaign

Another commercial that earned the ire of the One Million Moms group was that of Campbell’s Soup featuring two gay dads and their tie-up with the Star Wars movie franchise. According to One Million Moms, Campbell’s is sending the message that homosexual men are raising children, whom they wouldn’t have if a woman wasn’t involved, and they are OK with it.”

5. Amazon’s Kindle Paperwhite commercial

The commercial starts out like any other: a man and a woman are comparing their e-book readers as they lounge near a beach. The man notes that the woman is using a Kindle Paperwhite, and having been won over by its features, buys one himself. He asks the woman if she would like to celebrate, and she responds that her husband is getting her a drink right now. The man smiles and says, “So is mine!” Plain, simple, and accepts the reality of gay life as a matter of fact.

I love Adele’s Hello which has earned three nominations for the 2017 Grammy Awards (Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Pop Solo Performance). Adele’s 25 is also vying for Album of the Year award alongside Justin Bieber’s Purpose, Beyonce’s Lemonade, Drake’s Views and Sturgill Simpson’s A Sailor’s Guide To Earth.
There’s of course Mark Ronson’s Uptown Funk and I also love Katy Perry’s Rise and John Legend’s recently released Love Me Now, but both are not in the list.

Happy viewing guys! And have a nice weekend!

What’s on the horizon for us sexual beings who walk on the wild side? The age of bookstores and bath houses dwindle in the age of apps that help us hook up and get off.  We sort through grocery lists of stats, and hope the one we pick to meet is sane, courteous, and lives up to all his profile specifications. We meet in public settings and throw them off by wearing the blue shirt instead of the red we mentioned; we send them to the vacant apartment across the hall; or we pull up in the Toyota when we said we drove Honda, all for the sake of safety as we screen our candidate for hot butt naked sex.

Safety becomes a real thought once we remove the barrier of distance and/ or anonymity. What happens when all the clothes are off and it’s about to go down?

There’s a blue pill that is becoming a game changer in our worlds of sexual adventure… Not that blue pill naughty boy. (smile) It’s the other blue pill. The one called PrEP or pre-exposure prophylaxis, and what I really mean is there’s an FDA approved pill called Truvada® that is currently being used as PrEP.  The pill is prescribed to HIV negative persons as a form of protection against getting HIV. It is 90% effective in preventing the development of HIV in the body, but does not protect against other sexually transmitted infections.  It can be prescribed by most providers, it’s covered by insurance, and there is co-pay and other financial assistance for those with limited or no insurance.

If you’re a sexual adventurer who happens to be living with HIV and haven’t checked in with a provider in 12 months or more, it’s time to get re-linked. HIV care is important for keeping a suppressed viral load; it keeps you healthy and happy, and protects against transmission to your partner. Oh, and guess what hunty!? There are HIV care re-linkage programs with staff specifically there to help you navigate and connect with healthcare providers whether you have insurance or not. You can even get access to programs for financial assistance, housing, and other needs. We can enjoy our nights of unbridled passion with peace of mind knowing our viral load is undetectable. Who knew dropping a load was so important. (giggles)

No matter how we do it, when we do it, how often we do it, or who we do it with, let’s do what’s necessary to enjoy sex with less worry.

Protect, Respect, and Get Checked.

For assistance or information on PrEP or Re-linking to Care please contact:

After the horrible events that happened at Pulse, reports came out that its owner, Barbara Poma, had decided to sell the building for $2.25 million to the city of Orlando so it could be turned into a memorial for the 49 lives that were taken back in June 12.

However, the Orlando Sentinel now reports that Poma has backed out of the sale, opting instead to decide on the fate of the building herself.

In a news conference held outside the club, Poma explained her decision to back out of the deal.

“This decision truly came just from my heart and my passion for Pulse, and everything it’s meant to me and my family for the last 12 years since its inception,” she said. “So I think the struggle was you know, letting it go, and it’s just something I could not come to grips with.”

The decision comes after some controversy over the $2.25 million asking price for the property. Two of the city commissioners, Tony Ortiz and Jim Gray, had objected to it, much to the consternation of District 4 Commissioner Patty Sheehan.

For her part, Poma says that the disagreements and the City Council’s public debate over her asking price was not the factor that pushed her towards backing out from the proposed sale of the site.

She tells the Orlando Sentinel: “Everyone’s entitled to their opinion and their feelings but, for me, it wasn’t about the real estate and the appraisal, it was about the emotion, what happened here.”

While Poma still has no concrete plans for the site, part of the money being raised by the non-profit called the onePULSE Foundation will be set aside for a “permanent memorial at the existing site of Pulse Nightclub.”

Poma first opened the bar in 2004 in memory of her brother John, who had AIDS and died in 1991.

If the comments on our earlier blog post “Dating : 7 Reasons Why Dating Older Men Is Hot”  are any indication, the topic of age is still a touchy subject in the gay community. Both sides have a lot to say about each other, and they aren’t always complementary.

One of the comments on the article, for instance, declares that they wouldn’t “touch a Millennial with a ten foot pole. Self-centered, ADHD to the max, drug-addicted, who knows WHAT panoply of bugs they carry.” Down the comment thread, other people called them “immature”, “brainwashed”, “boring”, and “leeches”.

The millennials are giving as good as they’re getting, though. One commenter disputed most of the seven reasons mentioned in the article, saying that he’s met “plenty of older men that have very little to talk about and can’t hold a conversation to save their life, at least not in person.” Another said that “these older guys don’t know where the hell they are going, they get with younger so they feel younger but usually have to pay for it”.

And then there are the magical ones who have found a connection with guys several years their junior or senior. One commenter shares “I love my old man. He cares about me more genuinely than any young [one] I have been with. He’s invested in my happiness. And may I debunk the theory that older men don’t want or avoid healthy sexual relationships. His libido is stronger than mine!”

With the subject of age being such a touchy one and prone to either turn off someone or start an argument, have you ever considered lying about your age online? Did it work out for you? What happens if the other person wants to see up? Share your stories with us in the comments section below!

Through the course of her career, Lady Gaga hasn’t made her support of the LGBTQ community a secret. Beyond the outrageous outfits that always draws a titter, Gaga has been active in so many other ways.

For instance, Gaga was recently shown on the Today Show paying a surprise visit to New York City’s Ali Forney Centre in Harlem, which is the largest shelter for homeless LGBTQ youth in the city. Gaga brought along gifts with her, which understandably brought on the waterworks from some of the teens.

“These children are not just homeless or in need, many of them are trauma survivors,” Gaga explains in a video broadcast on TODAY. “They’ve been rejected in some type of way. My own trauma in my life has helped me to understand the trauma of others.”

Of course, this hasn’t been the first time that Gaga has advocated for the LGBT community.

Gaga has worked together with Cyndi Lauper and MAC Cosmetics to launch a line of lipstick under their supplementary cosmetic line, Viva Glam. More than $202 million were raised from the sales of those Gaga-endorsed Viva Glam lipstick and lip gloss, and the money was used towards fighting HIV and AIDS.

When Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell was still in effect, Gaga went to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards with four gay and lesbian former members of the United States Armed Forces who had been unable to serve openly because of the policy. At the time, Gaga also urged fans to contact their senators to overturn the policy.

Gaga was also at a vigil held in Los Angeles for victims of the attack at the gay nightclub Pulse in Orlando. She read aloud the names of the 49 people killed in the attack, and delivered a speech as well.

How do you feel about this latest charitable effort from Lady Gaga?

As the inauguration for president-elect Donald Trump and vice-president-elect Mike Pence draw closer and closer, more and more people are finding creative ways to show their contempt for arguably one of most divisive people to ever assume power in the White House.

For instance, people living in the Chevy Chase neighborhood of Washington D.C. have taken to displaying rainbow Pride flags on their porches and lawns. Why? Because vice-president elect Mike Pence is currently renting a $6,000-a-month home in the neighborhood.

The flags started coming up on lawns and porches last Tuesday and was first noticed by ABC 7 reporter Suzanne Kennedy, who mentioned in a tweet that the flags were “a symbolic message”.These “protest” flags come only two weeks after Pence was booed by the audience in a staging of the Broadway hit “Hamilton”. The vice-president was also respectfully addressed by the cast of “Hamilton”, who asked him to “work on behalf of all of us”.

That the residents of Pence’s temporary home are against him should come as no surprise, as DC was one of the places were Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton bested Trump. That they are choosing to do their protesting with rainbow Pride flags comes from the many anti-LGBT stances that Pence has taken over the course of his political life.

Pence, for instance, is a believer of controversial conversion therapy. His policy against needle exchange programs and his slashing pf public health funding during his time as governor of Indiana also led to a massive HIV outbreak in his state.

Both Pence and Trump have also ran on a Republican platform that defines marriage as between one man and one woman”, and Trump’s transition team is headed by “traditional marriage” defender Ken Blackwell. Just like Pence, Blackwell believes in conversion therapy, and is also a member of anti-LGBTQ group Family Research Council.

How do you guys feel about this move by Mike Pence’s neighbors? Is this something you’d do? Share your thoughts in the comments section below!
