RIP Tim Campbell, Gay-Rights Activist Comments (0)

Gay activist Tim Campbell, once the publisher of the GLC Voice newspaper, has died in hospice at Ows_145187700774233 the age of 76.

Campbell is remembered as confrontational and controversial, speaking out on hot-button issues and in public forums even when more buttoned-down activists would not. This did not make him universally popular.

Campbell is also known as an early and vocal supporter of both marriage equality and safer sex.

Check out this notation on Campbell's work regarding police harassment of gay men in the '80s:

First, it is critical for our community to reckon with the tragic effects of this police harassment. Arrests were a matter of life or death for many of the targeted men, who had not chosen to identify as gay. One of the most devastating stories uncovered by Kevin is that of the Reverend James Santo, who set himself on fire in the basement of his Hopkins church rather than face his family and congregation after his arrest in a bookstore on an indecent conduct charge. And many of these men were not only arrested, but also were beaten by police, brutality that was chronicled at the time by crusading journalist Tim Campbell in the radical GLC Voice.

What The Doctor Ordered: Price-Gouger Facing Prison Comments (0)

Price-hiking pharma vulture Martin Shkreli has been arrested on securities fraud charges. In an unrelated move, this ghoul recently bought the rights to yet another life-saving medicine and announced he would charge $80,000 for it instead of its current price—just $100.

Watch the oh-so-articulate kind of waste-of-space who supports Shkreli:

Burt Reynolds Kicks Charlie Sheen When He's Positive Comments (0)

S-l1000Nobody deserves AIDS ... is that such a radical thought?

Wow, Burt Reynolds coldly says Charlie Sheen is “getting what he deserves”, in regards to Sheen's HIV diagnosis.

Reynolds—who has presumably bedded lots of people without protection—seems to think people who bed people without protection deserve HIV. Interestingly, Reynolds was once the subject of AIDS gossip when he was ill and in seclusion in Florida.

Seems like he's been away from the public eye for so long he's still talking like he was when Stroker Ace came out.

Cue sanctimonious gay people responding to this story supporting Reynolds.

My pal Jenni Olson drew my attention to this interesting Kickstarter, for a “non-documentary” about '60s underground filmmaker and artist Jack Smith. Check it out—it looks fascinating and the rewards are pretty cool, too.

Ironic, in light of his non-response (and his wife's non-response) to AIDS.
