First Came The Fag BISHOP—Now There's A Dyke!

The Episcopalian Church now has two same-sex loving bishops!



Mary Glasspool was ordained last week.



V. Gene Robinson has been a bishop since 2003.


Both report to "God," which makes them so happy, happy, happy!  You can tell by their always twinkling eyes and big grins! 


And they get to wear such pretty costumes!


But when it comes to flashy finery, Gene wins hands down!


Mary was selected by audience applause when Ye Mighty Purple Bishop raised his hand one by one over the finalists, including former talk-show hostess Sally Jesse Raphael who now has a buzz cut.


Better luck next time, Sally!


Religion is KrAzy FuN!

FACIAL HAIR Trend Sweeps Anti-Gay Movement!

Religious right leader George Rekers has had a rough time lately, ever since he was caught by the press cavorting with a nublie male escort.



But at least his moustache looks good!  Thick, fluffy and ready to rub!


Rekers is one of the founding members of the antigay organization NARTH (National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality), where many of his cohorts also sport facial hair.  It's a Christian look that's modern, masculine and oh-so-very heterosexual!

Well-groomed and sexy as they fight for heterosexual supremacy!

MY COMRADE Calls For Boycott of Arizona's Tacky TURQUOISE JEWELRY

Boycott Arizona!  That's the battle cry after the state passed a harsh new law cracking down on illegal immigrants. joins the fight by urging members of the LGBT community to boycott one of the state's most important products—tacky turquoise jewelry.



Arizona annually produces a huge onslaught of garish bright blue rings, bracelets, belt buckles, earings, bolo ties and other items.


Many of the accessories are purchased by flamboyant gays, especially same-sex square dancers.



For them to curb their turquoise jewelry habit will take considerable effort.


But we must stay united in our activist efforts.


Boycott tacky turquoise jewelry from Arizona now!  (Tacky turquoise jewelry from New Mexico is acceptable.)

Online Magazine DIS Joins Super Information Highway

There's a new and refreshingly clever multimedia magazine on the scene—Dis!





According to its creators, a "collective" of NYC artsy-fashiony types, Dis is out to:

"Disolve contentions,

Distort realities,

Dismember the establishment"


"Disrupt the dismal dissemination of fashion discourse that's been distinctly distributed in order to display the disenfranchised as disposable."


Whew!  That's a lot of dissing!



Among the contents:


*Writer Patrik Sandberg's hilarious (and probably true) predictions for the near future.  For example: "Plastic surgery will soon be free, though qualifications will need to pre-exist, such as ugliness."



*A fashion shoot by Marco Roso about the world dominance of denim.


*Illustrator Michael Lucid's send-up of the vapid times we live in.


*Another shoot by Roso, with a hefty size bra as the "in" fashion item.

Even if you're dyslexic, you'll love Dis!

And The AWARD for Most Intriguing Duo Of Nov '09 Goes To...

Heiress-socialite-fashionista Daphne Guinness and nightlife superstar Amanda Lepore!

Whatta couple!  Amanda is not tall... So Daphne minus her Alexander McQueen "shoes" must also be on the petite side.


The terrific twosome bonded earlier this month at a book launch for celebrity makeup artist François Nars.  How sweet!

What did Amanda and Daphne talk about? 

Math?  Politics?  The price of tea in China???
