I Know at Least Two People Who Are Thrilled About Barrios’ Resignation

by Angela

I sat down with gay film makers Israel Luna and Toni Miller of La Luna Entertainment earlier this week to get their reaction to Jarrett Barrios’ resignation from GLAAD. Why would these two horror filmmakers give two shakes about his, and then the subsequent 8 board members’ resignation over GLAAD’s endorsement of AT&T and T-Mobile’s proposed merger?

Well, back in March of 2010 Luna’s campy horror film, Ticked off Trannies with Knives, became a GLAAD Call to Action for its use of the word “tranny”, which is often considered a pejorative within the trans community. The film basically features hot transgendered women who seek revenge after being attacked by a group of red necks a la I spit on Your Grave”. The film is bloody, funny, sexy, trashy, exploitive, and pretty much everything else you’d ever want in a horror film. And GLAAD hated it.

Prior to the film’s release, Luna reached out to GLAAD for education about transgender terminology and issues facing the transgender community because they had received their first negative reactions about the film’s title. Continue reading

What’s The Skinny?

I don’t know if it’s some kind of hormonal imbalance that causes two bitches who are too close within each other’s boundaries that make them want to claw at one another, but dueling cat-fights are taken to new heights when a nastier, bitchier, more vicious pair of opponents are involved: gay men with differences of opinion. Several weeks ago I posted an entry about how some gay men think they can spew fashion advice simply because they’re gay. Gay folks like Mr. William Sledd, the Youtube celebutard of the “Ask A Gay Man” fame is a prime example of a gay liar man attempting to regurgitate his fashion faux pas to the public, trying to capitalize on his “gay gene” as the foundation of legitimacy as a fashion expert when in fact he’s a complete fraud when it comes to knowing what jeans a man can wear. Obviously, I am talking about his “denim guide,” and how skinny jeans belong only on guys who are emo or in a band. I fit in neither category; if I were to listen to the advice of Mr. Sledd, my 30+ pairs of jeans would dwindle down to like… five pairs. Now I have no shame admitting I’m a denim whore, and being such the whore of denim that I am, take it from me when I say I know a thing or two about what jeans are acceptable for a guy to wear.

Ask A GAY MAN's William Sledd.
