Many moons ago I knew someone who knew someone in a group of friends I had when I first came out and when I first launched the old Queer Fresno. For the purposes of this blog we’ll call him “John Doe” because he still lives in Fresno and still knows some people I know and I don’t want to drudge up old drama. John and I had a big disagreement around how he handled his HIV status and I was reminded of him last week when an Atlanta pastor was caught sleeping with women in his church and knowingly spreading HIV.
I was hanging out with a good friend of mine over the weekend, and he was astonished I’ve never heard of Steve Hughes, metalhead comedian from down under, he promptly made me watch this clip! It’s a few years old but totally still relevant. If you can spare the 10 minutes I suggest watching the whole video, otherwise I’ve clipped it where he starts his bit about his homophobic metal friends and gays, you have got to watch it!
White Collar, on USA Network, is starting its final season on November 6th. We are big fans of Matt Bomer here on QL and so our readers.
So as part of the process of moving QL to our server space and the downloadable version of WordPress it’s give me a chance to see review and edit some of our content and pages.

So gay marriage is humming right along in the state of Arizona. The reactions, as you could expect, are emotional and intense. I was enjoying some of them this morning over my morning cup of coffee!

Alan Turing was a wartime codebreaker during World War II. He developed a code breaking machine called Bombe. After the war, Turing worked at the National Physical Laboratory designing the first stored program computer called ACE. Some say he is the father of artificial intelligence.
Matt Bomer has long been a QL favorite and I definitely want to keep up that trend on Queer Landia 4.0. Not only is he a dreamy and talented actor, he is out and proud and more than does is part in helping keep gay actors in a positive light. I wanted to give him a birthday shout out as turned 37 over the weekend.
