A few months ago a mentioned in passing Michael Lucas’ “Revenge,” in which Matan Shalev gets it from Rafael Alencar, after he’d seduced Rafael’s romantic interest Jesse Martin with his lap dancing art to a night filled with erotic excesses.

“In the old days everything was better,” my grandmother used to say. “In the old days beetroot tasted like beetroot,” she said, forgetting the period they replaced the beetroot with flower bulbs.
Maybe “the old days” are over-romanticized. One thing I’m sure of though: in the old days things were clearer. Gay, straight, in my grandmother’s time they’d never heard of bisexual.
Michael Staal opened the door to the room he’d rented out to a student and strode in, all confidence and brawn. Closing the door behind him, he flicked the door with one gloved finger and let his eyes crawl over the figure of the guy on the bed in front of him. The man wore a blue uniform that held every curve of his muscular body, unlike the boy on the bed who appeared naked except for the gleaming white jockstrap that hugged his round ass.
The blackmail case in West Brabant appears to include more victims than the five gays that have come forward up until now. COC Netherlands is urging the police to speed up their investigation so as to end these practices as soon as possible.

I just read an article about how a gay Brit was bashed in the center of Amsterdam a couple of weeks ago. Badly injured. The next homophobe incident in what once was the gay capital of the world.
Still, don’t get me wrong, but there is something positive about this fact: it made the national press in Holland. It’s something that doesn’t happen here in Brussels when a gay man is hospitalized after having been attacked.

The Italian fashion sector is licking her wounds after the disastrous times the global economic crisis caused. Customers with a budget are returning slowly to the various shops and turnovers are going up. “Let’s say things can only get better after 2009, which was not that good,” said president Mario Boselli of the National Chamber of Italian Fashion. “Recovery has started but it’s slow.”
A journalist of the Italian magazine Panorama has caught three gay priests in Rome’s gay nightlife with a hidden camera. The priests were also filmed while having sex with an accomplice or the journalist.
This Panorama story surfaced via an email yesterday even before the magazine was out, but it has been confirmed. The Panorama site now shows the video images. Panorama – owned by media tycoon and prime minister Silvio Berlusconi – calls the exposed double life of the gay priests ‘very disturbing.’
On the 27th of July a large majority in the parliament of Montenegro accepted an anti-discrimination law, which also includes discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. With this law Montenegro meets one of the conditions to become a member of the European Union but real social acceptance of LGBT people is still far off.
The new legislation was accepted with 67 votes in favor, 6 votes against and 4 abstentions.
The Homophobia Meter of the Humanist Development Organization shows that ten percent of the population thinks gays deserve punishment – a little time in jail will turn them around. A similar percentage is against formal rights for homosexuals.
These are a few of the results of the Homophobia Meter, which could be filled out the past months on the Hivos site. Marijke Haanraadts of Hivos: ‘Shocking,’ because ‘the visitors of our site are not representative.’ The Hivos spokesperson means to say she thinks the real percentage of homophobia in Holland will be even higher.
