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

image

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!

LSDivas PRESENTS TRACEY ‘AFRICA’ NORMAN FOR BLACK HISTORY MONTH!

image

Long before Caitlyn Jenner shocked the world when she transitioned from male, Olympic superstar; and before Laverne Cox began giving groundbreaking performances on Orange Is The New Black, Tracey ‘Africa’ Norman was the first Transgender model to be featured in major magazines and score lucrative product endorsements.

In the 1970s, Newark, New Jersey native, Tracey Norman quietly began transitioning after high school. As part of her “training” on becoming more feminine, Norman would pose as a fashion student and sneak into modelling casting calls to watch black models walk and copy their mannerisms. One day, she followed a group of black models into a building in what turned out to be a casting call for Italian Vogue.

Photographer, Irving Penn was ecstatic that he had just discovered the next Beverly Johnson. Tracey ended up working in Italy and Europe for years and even scored major product endorsement deals with Clairol and Ultra Sheen makeup. It wasn’t until many years later that the industry ‘caught on’ and her modelling career abruptly ended. But still stunning in her 60s, Tracey Norman paved the way for Trans women working in film, television and fashion today… Even if they never knew it!

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!

COULD E! HAVE ANOTHER KARDASHIAN SPINOFF UP ITS SLEEVE? CAIT AND KRIS PARTY IT UP IN NEW ORLEANS!

1448392871483
Caitlyn and Kris Jenner were spotted filming for Caitlyn’s upcoming season of ‘I Am Cait’ in Louisiana this weekend. The two were caught tossing beads from a balcony on Bourbon St. and partying it up in some of the local bars.

Caitlyn, who arrived in town after paying her respects to victims of Trans violence on St. Louis, seems to be getting her friendship with her ex back on track. Perhaps we could see another spinoff with the two women traveling, Thelma and Louise style, across country.

This comes after Caitlyn has been criticized after announcing she would probably vote Republican in the next Presidential campaign. And rumors abound that she may even be dating. Say what you want, but Caitlyn sure does know how to make some headlines!

MORMONS NO MORE: HUNDREDS SET TO LEAVE CHURCH OVER SAME-SEX COUPLES BEING LABELED APOSTATES

HUNDREDS SET TO LEAVE MORMON CHURCH OVER SAME-SEX COUPLES BEING LABELED APOSTATES

It turns out that the Church or Latter Day Saints’ recent action of labeling same-sex couple’s apostates has offended members of its own congregation. Upwards of 900 members are set to formally resign from the Church in response to the action.

The policy prohibits the children of gay couples, whether adopted or natural born, from being baptized. After the new guidelines were released a week ago, calls for mass resignations were immediately voiced.

Utah attorney Mark Naugle who is assisting members in the resignations says he’s received 900 letters of intent and expects many more. The reason behind it? ┬áThe policy affects innocent children and members funder that unconscionable. The Church tried to stem the bloodshed by releasing a statement that currently baptized members are not affected. But despite Church officials’ clarification, Naugle said the resignation requests keep pouring in.
