SPORTSKEEDA: Mallakhamb is gymnastic sport in which a gymnast performs poses and feats while hanging from a vertical wooden pole or rope. Mallakhamb also refers to the pole used in the sport.

WIKI: The series presents a “battle of the sexes” and role reversal scenario in which two male domestics escape from the female-ruled planet Medusa and, arriving on Earth, are pursued by the Medusan security forces. When the Medusans fail to re-capture the two men, they bring two human hostages—a man and a woman—back with them to their home planet. The series’ 13 episodes concern the two groups’ attempts to adapt to life on the different planets while brokering an exchange for the hostages.

Pay It No Mind – The Life and Times of Marsha P. Johnson –
Thanks to the wisdom and support of Richard Morrison, Larry Mitchell, and Jimmy Camicia who made this documentary possible.
Special thanks to Antony and the Johnsons. Your music and generosity shine, levitate, and transcend. Buy their music; it will love you. Love all the contributors in this film.
— Marsha, what a trip. She was something else. I vividly remember seeing her back in the 70’s & 80’s on Christopher Street. Kids would point at her in awe with bulging bug-eyes saying, “See that crazy drag queen over there?” I would respond, “Well honey, she started the Stonewall riots.” The listener’s mouth without fail would drop agape, because she was truly a sight to see. Then, after that, all the up and coming queens whenever we saw her would pause & genuflect as she made her way along the cobblestone streets of Greenwich Village. She is an undisputed icon. She’s the Statue of Liberty, the Eiffel Tower, and the Sphinx all rolled up into one divine ball.
This feature-length documentary focuses on revolutionary trans-activist, Marsha “Pay it No Mind” Johnson, a Stonewall instigator, Andy Warhol model, drag queen, sex worker, starving actress, and Saint. “Pay It” captures the legendary gay/human rights activist as she recounts her life at the forefront of The Stonewall Riots in the 1960s, the creation of S.T.A.R. (Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries) with Sylvia Rivera in the ’70s, and a New York City activist throughout the ’80s and early ’90s. Through her own words, as well as in-depth interviews with gay activist Randy Wicker, former Cockettes performer Agosto Machado, Author Michael Musto, Hot Peaches founder/performer, Jimmy Camicia, and Stonewall Activists Bob Kohler, Danny Garvin, Tommy Lanigan-Schmidt, and Martin Boyce, Marsha’s story lives on.
This documentary screened in 2012 at the IFC theater in New York; the British Film Institute in London, England; Roxie Theater in San Fran; Clinton St. Theater in Portland, Ore.; and La Mutinerie Theater in Paris, France. You should see it.
The NYPD cold case department recently reopened Marsha’s case.

Well, Mr. Pattinson poses like a dream. He has a youthful Tony Danza smile, hairy armpits exposed for all to worship, a lovely tight pink pucker and a tasty average-size dick. That cool ‘James Dean” sneer of his (that young teen men never seem to tire of doing), he wears it well. He reminds me of Bomba, The Jungle Boy but with that innocent bad ass-ness of one of the members of the Bowery Boys/ East- End Kids. He’s old school gangster movie cute.
But I dare say, Miss. Ginger Rogers would not stand for his dirty, dirty mouth.
