Horndog From Canada Turned Away At U.S. Border — Due To Scruff Profile Comments (0)

It might sound ridiculous or even funny at first, but one Canadian man's story of being IMG_9995denied entry to the U.S. by border agents is actually downright scary.

As reported by Daily Xtra, a traveler from Vancouver was given extra scrutiny en route to New Orleans to visit a boyfriend.

This consisted of agents taking his phone and computer and demanding his passwords.

Around two hours later, after he had missed his flight, an agent returned and grilled him on his Scruff and BBRT (BarebackRealTime) profiles, asking what it meant that his profile said he was “looking for loads.”

“I could tell just by his nature that he had no intentions of letting me through. They were just going to keep asking me questions looking for something,” he says. “So I asked for the interrogation to stop. I asked if I go back to Canada am I barred for life? He said no, so I accepted that offer.”

A month later, he booked the same trip, this time clearing his phone of as much personal info as possible. Instead of helping, that hurt the situation:

When he went through secondary inspection at Vancouver airport, US Customs officers didn’t even need to ask for his passwords — they were saved in their own system. But André had wiped his phone of sex apps, browser history and messages, thinking that would dispel any suggestion he was looking for sex work. Instead, the border officers took that as suspicious.

“They went through my computer. They were looking through Word documents,” André says. “I had nude photos of myself on my phone, and they were questioning who this person was. It was really humiliating and embarrassing.”

“They said, ‘Next time you come through, don’t have a cleared phone,’ and that was it. I wasn’t let through. He said I’m a suspected escort. You can’t really argue with them because you’re trapped,” he says.

Are you telling me that agents with people's stored hookup-app and phone passwords aren't abusing them? Isn't it also very likely that gay people could be at a higher risk for being rejected at the whim of homophobic agents?

He lost two flights and around $1,200 due to the capricious actions of the U.S. agents.

And if you're thinking this can only happen to immigrants, think again — even Americans, who must be allowed in, can have their persona devices seized.

Give us your poor, your sick, your huddled masses — but no horny gays, please.

Quebec City Mosque Gunman Was Right-Wing Troll, Trump Fan Comments (0)

Alexandre Bissonnette, 27, has been IDed as the suspect who walked into a Quebec City mosque Sunday and shot 25 people, killing six.

Bissonnette, according to Canada's Globe and Mail, is exactly who you might think would seek to exterminate a bunch of Muslims at prayer:

The suspect in the deadly attack on a Quebec City mosque was known in the city's activist circles as a right-wing troll who frequently took anti-foreigner and anti-feminist positions and stood up for U.S. President Donald Trump.

Bissonnette appeared to have become radicalized in March 2016, following a visit to Quebec City by French nationalist Marine Le Pen:

Mr. Bissonnette's Facebook profile was removed from public view Monday morning along with the comments he left behind. Before Ms. Le Pen's visit, Mr. Bissonnette's friends say he showed little interest in politics, despite studying the subject at Laval University.

Shades of things to come as western righties become the terrorists they're always squawking about?

TIFF Founder, OUTRAGEOUS! Producer Bill Marshall Dies @ 77 Comments (0)

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Toronto Film Fest founder Bill Marshall died of a heart attack at 77 on New Year's Eve. Marshall, along with his work in helping to make Toronto a first-class destination for new films, produced a string of films himself, including the fascinating drag flick Outrageous! (1977), starring Craig Russell (d. 1990), that includes some of Russell's fab impersonations of legendary divas Tallulah Bankhead, Bette Davis, Mae West, Barbra Streisand and more.

Key lines: “How many Zsa Zsa Gabors can be in a room at a time?” “Are you telling me Karen Black isn't real?” “What a dump! Speaking of Joan Crawford ... ” “I've never heard of a sugar uncle.”

The whole movie is right here:

According to THR:

Marshall passed away Sunday in a Toronto hospital after a cardiac arrest, the festival said. Marshall and two friends, Henk van der Kolk and Dusty Cohl, launched the then Festival of Festivals in 1976 to bring American stars and the best of European cinema to a sophisticated Toronto audience.

Their first year saw 35,000 film lovers attending to watch 127 features from 30 countries. TIFF, which today is a familiar launching pad for Hollywood Oscar campaigns, annually features A-list talent such as Matt Damon, George Clooney and Jennifer Lawrence.

"Without his tenacity and dedication, the Toronto International Film Festival would not be among the most influential public cultural festivals today," TIFF CEO Piers Handling said in a statement. "We were so fortunate to have Bill serve as one of our greatest champions for 41 years."

Check out this vintage interview with Mr. Marshall:

RIP! Quite an accomplished man.

This is probably about how a Trump Administration will go, unfortunately. It's funny, but I hope his transition team never hears it.
