UGLY: Iran's President Ahmadinejad tells Piers Morgan: Gays are ugly and are like thieves.
When Morgan asked Mr Ahmadinejad if he could publicly accept homosexuality as people are born gay, the president turned the tables on the presenter and asked: “do you believe that people are born homosexual?” Morgan, who also judges Americas Got Talent replied: “yes, I absolutely believe that”.
Mr Ahmadinejad responded: “I’m sorry. Let me ask you this. Do you believe that anyone is giving birth through homosexuality? Homosexuality ceases procreation. Who has said that if you like or believe in doing something ugly, and others do not accept your behaviour, that they’re denying your freedom? Perhaps in a country they wish to legitimise stealing.”
Lustralboy says: You've got to feel sorry for anyone gay and born in Iran!
MESSY: Madonna's turn! Vote for gay-supporting Obama because he's a Muslim!!
And we quote: “Y'all better vote for f--king Obama, OK? For better or for worse, all right? We have a black Muslim in the White House. Now that's some amazing s--t," she said. "It means there is hope in this country. And Obama is fighting for gay rights, so support the man, goddamnit."
Of course, we know that Obama is Christian and has spoken and written widely about his faith. Madonna's comments, possibly in jest, came in the middle of an extended speech that touched on Martin Luther King Jr.'s legacy and traced the civil rights movement from America's inception to Obama's election.
Lustralboy says: "Dear old Mad. Her heart may be in the right place but her lips need a bit more control!
BAD: Paris Hilton sounds off homophobically. Then apologises!
The hotel chain heiress, secretly recorded making homophobic comments to a gay friend in a taxi, was screwed by the conversation ending up online.
During the conversation, in which a man is heard logging on to gay dating app Grindr, Hilton says: “Ewwww…gay guys are the horniest people in the world…they’re disgusting. Dude, most of them probably have AIDS…I would be so scared if I was a gay guy…you’ll like, die of AIDS.”
Lustralboy says: Paris's lack of a brain has often been rumoured. Now the rumour is confirmed.
GOOD: Lady Gaga slams the Pope and says “gay marriage is going to happen” regardless of what the Pope says.
On Friday, the Pope visited France to address 32 bishops and said: “Marriage and the family are institutions that must be promoted and defended from every possible misrepresentation of their true nature, since whatever is injurious to them is injurious to society itself.”
In reply, Lady Gaga today told Europe 1 radio: “I think that gay marriage is going to happen. It must. We are not actually equal — humanity — if we are not allowed to freely love one another. What the Pope thinks of being gay does not matter to the world. It matters to the people who like the Pope and follow the Pope. … It is not a reflection of all religious people.”
Lustralboy says: We have always applauded Lady Gaga's long association with LGBT rights, whether for her vigorous support for the repeal of DADT, her recent anti-bullying foundation or her ultimate gay anthem, "I was born this way"!
GOOD: Star UK DJ, Nick Grimshaw, comes out.
Nick Grimshaw, since Monday the new host of Britain's Radio 1’s flagship breakfast show, has spoken about his sexuality.
Grimshaw said: “I’ve just not met anyone that I thought ‘oh, I really like you that much’. I work so much, when I do go out, I’d rather go out with my friends. I rather do that than, like, go out on the prowl. I literally can’t think of anything worse. I’d really like to go out with Frank Ocean.
Lustral boy says: Grimmy has to be an improvement on previous incumbent, Chris Moyles, who angered gay rights campaigners for some of his anti-gay jokes. Moyles was named “Bully of the Year” by Stonewall in 2006.
UGLY: Cory Bernardi, Aussie senator, equates gay sex with bestiality. Due to address Tory conference.
The Australian senator, sacked as an aide to the country's opposition leader for linking homosexuality to bestiality, is due to attend the 'European Young Conservative Freedom Summit' in Oxford this weekend.
He had said, "The next step is having three people that love each other be able to enter into a permanent union endorsed by society, or four people. There are even some creepy people out there, who say that it's OK to have consensual sexual relations between humans and animals. Will that be a future step?”
Lustralboy welcomes the party's comment: "We haven’t organised this event, and are not in control of who attends. We strongly condemn Mr Bernard’s comments, which do not reflect David Cameron’s or the Conservative Party’s viewpoint in any way."
Hopefully, the same prevailing view will emerge after former Tory minister, bonkers Ann Widdecombe, hosts an anti-gay marriage event in Birmingham Town Hall in order to pressure the PM to drop the plans.
MESSY: Hugh Grant comes out for Gay Marriage. Stephen Fry outs him completely!
The Out4Marriage campaign has a new supporter. Hugh Grant, star of Four Weddings and a Funeral, Love Actually and the Bridget Jones films, has recorded a supportive video. When the news broke, Stephen Fry tweeted a message saying: ”Hugh Grant has come out! He says love is the same straight or gay: hurrah for him".
Needless to say, this has been widely and amusingly misinterpreted!
Lustralboy says: Nice one, Hugh. We need more straight champions of LGBT rights. And less confusion from Twitter-addicted Stephen Fry!
GOOD: And finally, another Emmy's triumph for Modern Family.
Modern Family won four Emmy Awards last weekend, including its third consecutive trophy for best comedy series. The hit LGBT-inclusive sitcom also won awards for director Steve Levitan and supporting actors Julie Bowen and Eric Stonestreet.
Lustralboy says: Hooray! See our related story on the positive and disarming impact of this and similar out comedy shows.
