IT’S A TKO AS NIKE TERMINATES MANNY PACQUIAO CONTRACT OF GAY REMARKS!

Manny Pacquiao suffered his latest knockout at the hands of his endorsement partner, Nike. The athletic company has terminated its contract with the struggling boxer after his comments that gay people were “worse than animals.”

Pacquiao made the comments while on the Senate campaign trail in the Philippines over the weekend. However, on Monday, the boxer tried to do a bit of damage control by apologizing for comparing gays to animals. He’s still firm in his beliefs that gay marriage is not okay. So rather than condemn the LGBT community,  he offered this, “God bless you all and I’m praying for you.”

Nike, a supporter of Gay rights and the Be True campaign issued the following statement, “Nike strongly opposes discrimination of any kind and has a long history of supporting and standing up for the rights of the LGBT community. We no longer have a relationship with Manny Pacquiao.”

The deal, worth a reported one million dollars per year won’t affect Manny too much. He’s still worth a reported two hundred million. But should he ever get that rematch with Mayweather, expect rainbow flags waving in the arena for another swift knockout!

ATLANTA TO BE SITE FOR FIRST LGBT FRIENDLY PRIVATE SCHOOL IN THE SOUTH

pride-school-atl.jpg
It looks like LGBT youth and students who feel bullied or unable to be themselves at traditional schools may now enroll in Pride School Atlanta. The $13k per year private school will be open to all but will primarily serve as an educational safe haven for those students finding it hard to transition or come out.

Children and teachers will have full permission to be themselves and the hope is to create a more tolerant environment within the entire community. Georgia Equality successfully lobbied the state to creat such a school back in 2010. At the time, the district found that fewer than 30% of schools had anti bullying policies directly affecting LGBT youth.

Congratulations Atlanta, Georgia for moving the conversation about LGBT equality that much more forward!

ISRAELI (GAY & STRAIGHT) JEWISH AND ARAB COUPLES KISS IN RESPONSE TO BOOK BAN

1452731135972.jpg
The Israeli Ministry of Education has come under criticism for its decision to ban a book about the love affair of a Jewish woman and Arab man. But rather than respond with attacks and criticism, ‘TimeOut Tel Aviv’ responded with love.

The organization posted a video of gay and straight couples of Jewish and Arabic descent kissing to show that love is indeed more powerful than hate. Some of the kisses were from those who knew one another. Others were done by complete strangers.

Either way, we applaud ‘TimeOut Tel Aviv’ for choosing to respond with love. Let’s hope that during a time when so many in the world are warring over differences, this one little video can cause just a few to celebrate the beauty of what makes us all different.

KATHRYN KNOTT FOUND GUILTY IN ATTACK OF GAY COUPLE

kathryn knott
The jury dileberated for three days and in the end found twenty-five year-old Kathryn Knott guilty of crimes against a gay couple in Philadelphia. Knott and two male friends made national news when they were accused of attacking two gay men, sending one to the hospital.

Knott rejected a plea deal that would see her serve probation and instead opted for a jury trial. Unfortunately, the prosecution not only used surveillance camera evidence against her, but her own homophobic tweets.

In the end, the jury convicted Knott of simple assault, conspiracy and reckless endangerment but not the more serious charges of felony aggravated assault. She remains free on bond until her February 8 sentencing.

GAY MAN JAILED FOR BLOWJOB TO DRUNK STRAIGHT MAN

Dale_Everard
22 year-old Dale Everard has been locked up for giving oral sex to a passed out, drunk, heterosexual man. Everhard was on a blind date at a Scottish night club when he befriended a female and her boyfriend.

While Dale and his new female friend danced the night away, her boyfriend got drunk and left early saying he had a headache. Everard who had been on a blind date that didn’t go so well, left afterward in a cab with his new bestie.

When he showed up at the couple’s apartment, the boyfriend went off on his girl for bringing a stranger home. After their fight, he passed out in the bedroom and she fell asleep on the couch.

That’s when Dale went into action, snuck into the man’s room and started pleasuring him orally. Thinking it was his girlfriend, the guy woke up, went off and threw Everard out. After filing a report, a court later ruled that Everard carried out the offense with forethought and slapped him with an 18 month sentence. Something tells us that mouth may be put to use more often than Everard would like in the next year and a half!

HIV RATES DOWN OVERALL IN US BUT UP 87% AMONG YOUNG, BLACK AND LATINO GAY MALES

130220133444-hiv-ribbons-file-story-top
The Centers for Disease Control released the latest HIV data for the U.S. and the results are startling. While overall rates are down 20% for a ten year period, rates among 18-24 year-old black and Latino gay and bisexeual males are up a whopping 87%!

The large increase is attributed to black and Latino’s reluctance to wear condoms and also not being tested consistently and being aware of their status.

Even more distressing is the fact that 44% of all HIV cases are in Southern states. We cannot stress enough how important it is to know your status AND to practice safe sex. In other words… PUT A DAMN CONDOM ON!
