The Other Gay Massacre: A Review Of UPSTAIRS INFERNO Comments (0)

I caught Robert L. Camina's thorough, compassionate Upstairs Inferno this past week, as 18119579_10155036621241655_8861209262017922387_ngut-wrenching a film as you'd ever want to see.

A documentary on the tragic fire that claimed 32 lives at the gay bar the Upstairs Lounge in New Orleans in 1973, the film is a valuable record of an event many people — even LGBTQ people — have no idea ever happened.

More on the Tragedy

The fire tore through the popular gay watering hole, which also served as a nexus for the gay-affirming Metropolitan Community Church, killing dozens in a matter of minutes thanks to its fire-friendly decor and barred windows. One enduring image from the blaze is a news photo of the upper part of a gay pastor's body wedged between the bars of one window, where he died desperately trying to escape.

Over 20 bodies were found stacked by the windows, while others never had a moment to budge from where they stood. Still others died in the hospital in the days following the fire.

Sadly, the fire was almost certainly caused by a gay man angry that he'd been kicked out of the establishment. Sadly and sickeningly, he was never questioned by police and not long after committed suicide, reportedly at odds with being gay — and no doubt wracked with guilt over doing something he couldn't have imagined would end so horrifically.

WIDGETMike Yenni has the nuts to sit with his pregnant wife and for them to blame the media over his teen sexting scandal.

WIDGETCloseted Mike Yenni's accuser, Alex Daigle, was “warning about older men in power preying upon teenage boys.”

WIDGETWalter Scott was basically executed by a cop, but one juror simply couldn't find a cop guilty. Mistrial.

Too Hot To Fail?: Republican Accused Of Sexting With 17-Year-Old Finds Gay Defenders Comments (0)

12717283_1065059936850291_2024808027389844163_nRemember when Bush helped make gay marriage unconstitutional in many states? Yenni loves him! (Image via Facebook)

I remember when gay people used to have their eye on the ball, but now they just have their eye on the balls.

Why can't you do both—be sexual and also be capable of seeing the big picture, politically, when it comes to who our friends and enemies are?

This comes up after reading the comments on Queerty's post about Mike Yenni, a Republican, married Louisiana Parish President who has been accused of sexting with a 17-year-old boy, meeting him in a mall bathroom stall to give him sexy underwear and make out, and suggesting to him that they have a three-way with a 19-year-old.

Instead of laughing or being angry at the man's hypocrisy, most of the comments are either distracted by how HOT this DADDY is (I know Tom of Finland sexualized Nazis, but sheesh), or by how this is all none of our business (because 17 is the age of consent there).

Excuse me, but it is our business. The guy is an elected official who has pledged allegiance to the Republican Party. Read their platform on gay issues, please. Family values as a phrase has been used as a cudgel against LGBTQ people for decades, and this guy, hiding in the closet, is banging teenage boys while he's giving the appearance of being Mr. Straight-and-Narrow, and while his Party is pursuing aggressively anti-LGBTQ laws and measures.

Some have said he hasn't voted on anti-LGBTQ measures. So? He's a Republican—that was his blanket vote against us.

Also, removing the politics from it, how can these people not accept that a public figure's personal sexual conduct is, in fact, of interest? Are we not in the midst of hearing all about Bill Clinton's many infidelities all over again, and Trump's? There is a salacious desire to know, and when the conduct is occurring from someone claiming to be against that sort of thing, it's all the more newsworthy.

Jesus Christ, it's now to the point where gay people are so turned on by sexual situations they can't be disgusted by the hypocrisy of a guy like Mike Yenni? We're actually arguing for his privacy while his Party argues against the right of a trans person to take a piss?!

Noah Joke: Hate Group Leader's Home Swamped By Flood Comments (0)

Tonyperkins.jpg(Video still via FOX News)

Tony Perkins, the leader of the Family Research Council (deemed a hate group by the SPLC), called into his own radio show today to talk about the flooding that he describes as being of “biblical” proportions that has ruined his family's home

He will have to live in a camper for six months while it is repaired, making him literally not a happy camper.

Punchline: Perkins says natural disasters are God's way of punishing the gays.

The old saying about “wouldn't save him from drowning” comes to mind.

Alton Sterling Becomes Latest Black Man Shot Dead By Cops Under Questionable Circumstances Comments (0)

The cellphone footage of Alton Sterling's execution by police following a report that he'd threatened someone with a gun outside a Baton Rouge convenience store is beyond disturbing. Sterling was described as a longtime seller of CDs in the area.

Regardless of whatever illegal activity in which Sterling may have been involved, he was successfully pinned by cops, who then brutally shoot him dead. The license to kill they feel they have is palpable, perhaps because Louisiana has a Blue Lives Matter law and other iron-clad protections for police.
