Last weekend I took a quick get-away weekend vacation to Phoenix, Arizona. I know what you’re thinking, Phoenix  of all places?! Well, let me tell you, I would do it again. And a big reason for that is the Phoenix Art Museum! Coming from the Bay Area, I would put the Phoenix Art Museum right up there with SFMOMA and the de Young museum!

You’re possessed by a demon, and he stinks!

Rae-el. Not my demon, apparently. Damn.

I just had an epiphany.  Really, it just struck me like a bolt of lightning.

As a gay man, I’m possessed by a demon, and he stinks.  This, I’m assured, is true, and fixable, by no less a man of God than Bert M. Farias, on his blog The Flaming Herald.

“Here’s the raw, naked truth: Homosexuality is actually a demon spirit. It is such a putrid-smelling demon that other demons don’t even like to hang around it. A genuine prophet of God told me that the Lord allowed him to smell this demon spirit, and he got sick to his stomach. And yet as humans, many embrace this demon. Yes, you heard me right: Being gay is demonic.”

There’s a whole bunch of such stuff in that blog, and if you want you can jump over there and read it, but I’m sure you’ve heard it all before.  For me, however, the stinky-demon is a new revelation, and the source of my epiphany.  ZAP! FLASH OF LIGHT! CLAP OF THUNDER!

I just realized when my demon moved in!

So I got to steal away for some more vacation time and I hopped to Phoenix, Arizona for the weekend.  Before we were wheels up at SFO I had already determined in my heart that I would return to my Gay Sports MECCA while I was there.  As usual, Roscoes on 7th didn’t disappoint.

Atari to release LGBT Mobile game!

Well here’s a thing I never even knew was in the works. Gaming giant Atari is getting ready to launch a specific LGBT themed mobile game! It’s called PRIDEFEST, a city-building game much like that of Roller Coaster Tycoon, but with LGBT peoples.

The Engadget article I found this fantastic news in, puts a lot of stress on the buying power of the LGBT community ($830 billion in the US) and strongly pushes the idea PRIDEFEST is just pandering to the community.

Vikings Special Teams Coach suspended, report still nowhere to be found.

Vikings Special Teams Coach Mike PrieferWe have a small update since the last time we spoke of Kluwe and the Vikings. Vikings Special Teams Coach Mike Priefer, (the one who spoke of putting all gay people on an island and “nuking it until it glows.”) has been suspended for three games, and made to donate $100,000 to LGBT organizations by the Vikings organization.

Priefer also released a statement apologizing for what he said:

I owe an apology to many people – the Wilf family, the Minnesota Vikings organization and fans, my family, the LGBT community, Chris Kluwe and anyone else that I offended with my insensitive remark. I regret what has occurred and what I said. I am extremely sorry but I will learn from this situation and will work on educating others to create more tolerance and respect.

Hardly a day goes by anymore, that a positive LBGT story, article or report doesn’t get presented by some form of the media, and to think, it hasn’t been that long ago, when all I seemed to hear or read was either negative or heartbreaking.  That said, I’m not saying they no longer exist, I’m just saying, I get a mental uplift more often than I used to, as is the case for the recently held 2014 San Francisco Pride Event, where Silicon Valley connects with Pride…
