: The transgender community of Peru have been oppressed and marginalized by political and religious administrations. They are denied medical treatment, employment, education, official forms of identification, and there are zero laws to protect them. They are being eradicated from their culture. The photography project, “Virgenes de le Puerta” is increasing the global dialog and visibility of transgender women in the cultural landscape of Peru.

With our project in full swing we are asking you to assist us in our efforts. Our work has already created a large transformative buzz in Lima, and your assistance will directly impact their lives and protect members of the LGBTQ community. CHECK OUT MORE @ KICKSTARTER www.BarbozaGubo-Mroczek.com

Grab a drink. Grab a chair. And you might grab the boy of your dreams. Join Champagne Belly in the high school game “Spin The Bottle”. Are you feeling lucky?

IRISH CENTRAL: MacDonagh and MacBride and Connolly and Pearse. Every Irish school boy or girl knows the names of all the main players in the Easter Rising of 1916, but one revolutionary patriot has long been denied his due. If you’ve never heard of Roger Casement the reason is as simple as it is sad, he was homosexual. For that reason he was ignored when he was not being written out of our revolutionary history. At the turn of the century Casement, a longtime diplomat and human rights activist, was undergoing a profound and personal transformation.

That series of developments ought to have inducted him into the Irish revolutionary hall of fame, but an an unexpected wrinkle in the tale prevented it. A set of diaries, which British authorities claimed he had written in the years 1903, 1910 and 1911 was circulated. They revealed that he was homosexual, that he was remarkably promiscuous, and that he usually paid for his encounters, which involved much younger men and teenagers from a lower social class.

THE SECRET HISTORY OF HUNKY GAY MALES via SLATE

SLATE: In the same way that porn magazines are often hidden under pillows or locked away on the top shelves of closets, the history of “beefcake” photography has been highly secretive. The photographer and models who created the hunky, hyper-masculine work beginning in the 1940s right up to the pre-disco age, did it on the sly often dodging strict obscenity laws that landed some of them in prison, forced them to endure harassment and attacks, and kept almost all of them hiding deep in the closet.

For Petra Mason, the editor of 100% Rare All Natural Beefcake, published by Rizzoli, trying to track down the images, and, more significantly, the holder of the copyrights, turned out to be a bit like falling down a rabbit hole. READ THE WHOLE STORY HERE @ SLATE
