I’m not gonna say that if you vote then I’ll have sex with you but if you don’t then I can promise you that I won’t.” – Gus Kenworthy does his part to get out the vote. If you didn’t vote, have no fear – he’ll never find out.

I love an election. Or do I love an erection? Either way, I’m up for it. 

Someone who hoped to get people all hot and bothered was Larry Sinclair. The name may not ring a bell, nor will the fact that he was running for mayor of Cocoa, Florida. But you may recall him as the guy whose self-published memoir vividly described a two-day sex romp with former president, Barack Obama. Oh, he also said they were high on crack at the time. And Trump thought he cornered the market on “fake news”! What is real is Sinclair’s police record.  He’s served jail time in Florida, Colorado and Arizona, and he’s been convicted of forgery, fraud, and larceny. Forget running for mayor, he should be appointed a Supreme Court Justice!  P.S.  He lost by a landslide.
I do hate to sound crabby, but if I can’t be crabby, who can?  I’m really disappointed in most of these reboots. “Murphy Brown” might as well be filmed in slow motion at an old age home, “Roseanne” was fine until Roseanne died, and “Charmed” has no magic. 

Perhaps it’s these disappointments that explain my fondness for “Dynasty” – as long as I don’t compare it to the original.  Last week, Nicollette Sheridan had a great moment when her Alexis popped a potato chip in her mouth after saying, “If you haven’t noticed, Cristals come and go around here.” We’re barely into season two, and we’re already on our second Cristal. But wait, there’s more – Steven is out. The current actor, James Mackay, revealed, “While Steven had a choice to leave, unfortunately I didn’t.” Executive producer Sallie Patrick was not pleased. She blames the firing on “notes from the network”, mentioning that “the series just lost its sole queer couple. Let’s hope Steven’s leave of absence is temporary.” My sources tell me that the network has an intriguing idea – recast the role. Why? Because that’s what they did in the original series.

I told you that Armie Hammer and Timothée Chalamet would be re-teaming for a sequel to “Call Me By Your Name.” Recently, Chalamet did an interview with Harry Styles for “i-D” (don’t ask…I don’t know). Harry asked, “Can you still eat peaches?” Oh, that little scamp.  Chalamet said, “Umm I can, but not without thinking about it.” He also said, “That’s the most awkward scene to see with your parents in the whole world. My poor father.” Inexplicably, Styles followed that up with the quip, “I’m sure he’s done it too.” Oy!

Most weeks, I’d only have one questionable masturbation story. But this week, I’ve got two. John Stamos told Busy Phillipps about going to the sperm bank when he and his wife were doing IVF. He was led to a little room and my first thought was, “Did someone give him enough tokens?” Then I realized the little room he was in probably didn’t require tokens…nor did it have a hole in the wall (who are you to judge me?). John says that he turned on the TV (you know, for stimulation) and what was on?  “Fuller House!” “If I’m gonna masturbate to myself, it’s my old self and not the new self.” He swore the story was true, and actually said, “Hand to God.” I just hope he washed it first!

There is not a member of the Grande family who interests me. But, I know my readers like little Frankie, so here goes. On Halloween, he announced that he is a part of a throuple. For those of you not sexually adventurous, that means he’s in a relationship with two people. What I have learned in my time around the block is that most throuples consist of the actual couple and a third who either doesn’t last long, or takes one member of the couple with him when he leaves. I suspect this throuple is no different since Frankie revealed his boyfriends are a legally married couple. I’ll say this for Frankie – he’s nabbed a hot couple. And they bring something to the table – one’s a doctor, and one’s a lawyer. When asked what his favorite part of the relationship is, Grande said, “Dick.” Times two. With Frankie, I’m sure nobody is waiting for a turn.

We interrupt this gossip with some breaking news. Stormy Daniels has just been sainted.  Yes, our beloved Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence have named Stormy Daniels a saint. The Sisters surprised Stormy at her show at the Penthouse Club in North Beach, and we hear she couldn’t have been more delighted. And I bet it was a treat for the audience – how many times do you get to motorboat a saint?  No, Mother Teresa doesn’t count.

Last week, a contestant on “The Voice” claimed his porno past contributed to his elimination. What most outlets skipped was that the porn he did was gay porn. 
Tyshawn Colquitt says, “I did it when I was going through a rough time.  I got a presidential scholarship, but I didn’t have any money to pay for any type of living expenses, so I couldn’t go to college. I was trying to do so many different things and it was just not enough.”  So often, amateur gay porn isn’t enough. In this case, it happened to be amateur gay porn group scenes.

The Gold medalist diving champion only picked up his first set of knitting needles in March of 2020 as the coronavirus pandemic first spread across the globe, strangling normal daily routines in its deadly grip.

Now, the 27-year-old British athlete has launched a company to encourage others to take up the hobby.

“I designed these knit kits to help encourage you to pick up those needles, learn the basics, and fall in love with knitting at the same time – all whilst creating something to show off or pass on.

Ready? Pick up your needles, learn the basics and let’s have some fun!”

 

The website offers various kits for beginners, intermediate and experienced knitting and crocheting enthusiasts. One of the kits, a winter warmer hat already sold out but the collection ncludes a vest, scarves, cardigans, jumpers, stockings, and a blanket.

Kits include needles, biodegradable yarn made of Merino wool, and knitting patterns.

Critics call gay Santa ad ‘creepy’ accusing it of ‘sexualizing’ Christmas

The ad was posted to Youtube on November 22 to pay tribute to the 50th anniversary of Norway’s decision to decriminalize homosexuality

OSLO – A Norwegian Christmas ad for Norway’s postal service, Posten Norge, that depicts a gay Santa struggling to balance his Christmas day duties and a male love interest has sparked an online debate with critics saying it “sexualizes” the holiday figure. 

The ad, titled “When Harry met Santa,” shows a burgeoning romance between Santa and Harry that starts when the two meet one Christmas Eve. As leaves the house through the chimney that night, fireworks fill the night sky. 

Over the years, the two continue to see each other on Christmas Eve and fall in love. Frustrated with only getting to see his lover once a year, Harry pens a letter to Santa that says, “Dear Santa: All I want for Christmas is you.”

At the end of the nearly 4-minute ad, Santa and his lover engage in a seconds-long kiss. During their embrace, the camera pans out and a message that reads, “In 2022, Norway marks 50 years of being able to love who we want,” appears. 

The ad, posted to Youtube on November 22 to pay tribute to the 50th anniversary of Norway’s decision to decriminalize homosexuality, has garnered over 1 million views. 

“In addition to showing the flexibility of our services, we want to put it in a socially relevant setting,” Posten Norge said in a statement, according to Reuters

“Everyone should feel welcome, seen, heard, and included. This year’s Christmas ad embraces this,” it said.

Many have responded positively to the ad. 

Canadian Member of Parliament Randall Garrison called it “strong and moving,” saying the ad caused him to break his “no Xmas before December rule.”

Former U.S. ambassador to Denmark Rufus Gifford tweeted: “Oh man I love Scandinavia. Imagine if the US Post Office put out an ad like this.”

Others have voiced issues with the ad, calling it “creepy” and arguing that it “sexualizes” Santa.

English journalist Dawn Neesom, a columnist for the Daily Star, said as much on TalkRadio with James Max. 

“This is an advert for the Norwegian postal service celebrating 50 years of being able to love who you want. However, they have sexualized Santa,” Neesom said.

Max interrupted her, saying, “No they haven’t sexualized Santa, this is a nonsense and you are jumping on a tabloid bandwagon. If Santa came in and kissed Mrs. Claus, you wouldn’t say a word.”

Neesom pushed back and maintained her point, adding that it was different because Santa married Mrs. Claus. She also argued that Harry was cheating on his spouse, but there is no indication in the ad that he has one. 

Commentator Melanie Blake made a similar argument, tweeting: “If #Santa is gay these days then good for him but should we be seeing him getting off with anyone in Christmas adverts?! Seems a bit of an odd concept to me – if he was snogging a woman, it’s still sexualising a figure that’s mainly around for children which looks creepy to me.”

In response to such comments, the Independent published an article that said, “Really? I mean … really?! Now, I know that woke-bashing has become de rigueur, and that, after the backlashes against the #MeToo and BLM campaigns, we’re supposed to protect our precious and delicate cultural icons from the clutches of the baying woke mob – but are we really saying that the heartwarming romance between Harry and Santa is a woke step too far? Has Posten sexualised Santa? Oh, go and stuff your face with a selection box and give it a rest!”

It continued: “The truth is that Christmas and Santa have been sexualised for years already, and few people have batted an eye.”

NEW YORK – Light snow flurries swirled around the stars of theatre and stage of New York City’s ‘Great White Way’ as they gathered Sunday in Times Square- members of every Broadway company assembled singing in a powerful chorus “Sunday,” the powerfully emotional act one finale to “Sunday in the Park with George.”

They were gathered to pay homage to legendary Tony, Academy Award, and Grammy Award-winning composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim. That piece being performed had garnered Sondheim a Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1985.

Broadway’s best were joined by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Sara Bareilles, Josh Groban, Kathryn Gallagher and Lauren Patton at ‘Sunday’ Performance in Times Square.

The man who was heralded as Broadway and theater’s most revered and influential composer-lyricist of the last half of the 20th century died at 91 Friday at his home in Roxbury, Connecticut.

“This felt like church,” Bareilles told Variety after the performance on Sunday. “In his remembrance, we did what theater does best. We sang and raised our voices and came together in community.” 

Variety also noted that during the celebration, Miranda offered a sermon of sorts. Foregoing a speech, he opened Sondheim’s “Look I Made A Hat,” an annotated anthology of the composer’s lyrics, and read from a few passages before the crowd.
