“Bros Before Hos” – A Pilot Presentation For A New TV Show. Would You Watch This? (video)

In an era of all this tired ass reality tv, it is good to see that scripted tv is starting to make a small comeback, slowly but surely. Allow me to put on my accountant hat for just a moment. For those of you who would like to see the total eradication of reality tv, don’t hold your breath. Reality tv is dirt cheap to produce in relation to scripted television and the return on investment is HUGE. Let’s face it, scripted shows like Scandal are a gift from the TV Gods and not the norm. I said all that to say… I don’t know, I lost my train of thought.

BROS BEFORE HOS is a television pilot presentation about what it’s like to fall in love in this crazy world we live in now. The series is a semi-autobiographical comedy about three brothers, two straight, one gay, each dealing with modern-day issues in Los Angeles while trying to find love, but screwing shit up along the way.

WHY WAS THE TITLE “BROS BEFORE HOS” CHOSEN?

Because we liked it and thought it was funny. At its heart, this is a family show about three brothers who will never let anyone – guy or girl – come in between their bond. No, we’re not calling women “hos,” but we thought this would be a catchy title to grab people’s attention. Now, if a network wants to make our little show, and feels we should change the title, then we’d be down to having that conversation.

WHAT’S A PILOT PRESENTATION? 

Well, a pilot presentation is a “sizzle reel” of sorts that’s intended to show the world and the powers that be what this show would look like if it were on an actual television network. It’s like a “mini TV episode.”

NFL Players Mike & Maurkice Pouncey Allegedly Beat Up Gay Man In Miami Club. Hate Crime Or Nah?

I woke up this afternoon and started calling friends that I don’t talk to during the week, as I do every Sunday afternoon. While talking to my friend Kia back home in Miami, she steered me towards a news report from a local Miami news station. The headline read ” Miami Man Accuses Pouncey Brothers of Assault.” Then she went on to tell me that the man who was attacked was Miami blogger/vlogger Ricky Vasquez. At that very moment I became highly intrigued by the story. I’m from Miami, I’m gay, and I’m also a blogger/vlogger, so you guys can clearly see why I would be interested in this sort of thing. Upon further investigation, I discovered that a female friend of Vasquez was also assaulted. What the hell is going on here?

Around 5 am this morning, Rickey Vasquez took to social media and had this to say about the incident:

“I didn’t know that stuff like this actually f*cking happens to people,” he says in one video. “All I can remember is standing in a crowded club and this big guy keeps hitting me in my back, I look at him and I’m like, OK, he’s obviously turned up. And he just keeps hitting me. I ignore it. I keep ignoring the guy — he’s calling me a faggot. I realize that there’s two of the guys. Now they’re both in my face. The next thing I know, Honey tries to break it up. One of them punches Honey in the face, the other one punches me or the same one, I don’t know. Security comes.

Y’all remember Harry Potter? Well he is all grownup now and doing big boy things. I remember when he could barely use a magic wand, now he’s… You already know where I am going with this. On a serious note, I think it is amazing that Daniel has chosen to take on such a riske’ role coming fresh out of his 10+ year stint ass Harry Potter.

In his latest movie ‘Kill Your Darlings’ Radcliffe plays poet Allen Ginsberg who gets caught up with the manipulative Lucien Carr. The two share a sex scene that had tongues wagging across Sundance, and with those intense expressions we can understand why. The film comes to UK cinemas at the end of the month.

Notorious B.I.G & Faith Evan’s Son Graduates And Comes Out The Closet At The Same Damn Time

Christopher-Wallace-Jr

Tis the season for all the kids to graduate high school. Tis is also the season for everyone to be who the hell they are. Notorious B.I.G. & Faith Evans’s son Christopher Wallace Jr. recently graduated high school. He and Faith both posted pictures of their momentous occasion on social media, but one particular photo is garnering a little more attention than the rest.

DISCLAIMER, Christopher’s sexual orientation (whatever that might be), should not overshadow his accomplishment, BUT…

The above photo begs the question is Christopher Wallace Jr. gay? You’ve got to admit that it is a little ironic that his father for all intents and purposes was a gangster rapper and this picture defies what that lifestyle is all about. KUDOS to Faith Evans for A) not allowing her son to buy into all that gangster bullsh!t just because of who his father was, and B) raising her son in such a manner that he feels free and comfortable to express himself however the hell he sees fit, gay, straight, or indifferent.

Faith hasn’t taken too kindly to some of the banter and had some choice words for blogger Sandra Rose. Check out what Faith had to say as well as other pictures from the gradation Continue reading

Orange Is The New Black Transgender Actress Laverne Cox Covers Time Magazine

laverne-cox-time

Come through Laverne Cox! Yes Gawd Hunty! Y’all get you some of them size 17 feet! Mama is making her mark on the world. You know you are that chick when your face graces the cover of Time magazine. You better break down barriers and move mountains. I AM HERE FOR ALL OF THIS!

Check out the interview below:

Who was in your house growing up?

My twin brother and my mother, just the three of us. I never knew my father. He was never married to her mother, he was never a part of my life. It was just my mom, my brother and me.

And what were you like as a child?

I was really creative. I started to dance very young. I loved to dance. I begged my mother to put me into dance classes and finally, in third grade, she did. Tap and jazz but not ballet. She thought ballet was too gay … Throughout all of that, I was very feminine and I was really bullied, majorly bullied. There was this side of me that was this over-achiever that loved learning. But then I was also taunted at school. I was called names. I was made fun of.

Are there any particular instances of bullying that stand out in your memory?

There was this one instance in junior high when I had gotten off the bus and I was chased by a group of kids, which was, you know, pretty normal. They couldn’t really bully me on the bus because the bus driver could see in the rearview mirror, and that wasn’t allowed. But the second we got off the bus, they would try to beat me up. So I’d have to start running, immediately. So that day I was running for my life, basically, and four or five kids caught me. They were in the band. And I remember being held down and hit with drumsticks by these kids. And a parent saw it, the parent of some other student, and called the principal and the principal called my mother and my mother found out about it.

Otherwise you wouldn’t have told her?

No. And I remember being yelled at, because I didn’t tell her and then because I didn’t fight back. I never wanted to fight back. I was scared. I also thought I was above duking it out in the schoolyard with kids. I remember being blamed for having been attacked by a group of kids.

Is there a moment or time you remember first feeling like you might be transgender?

I tell this story about third grade. My third grade teacher called my mom and said ‘Your son is going to end up in New Orleans wearing a dress.’ Up until that point I just thought that I was a girl and that there was no difference between girls and boys. I think in my imagination I thought that I would hit puberty and I would start turning into a girl.

How did your thinking change after that moment in third grade?

Going to a therapist and the fear of God being placed in me about ending up in New Orleans wearing a dress, that was a profoundly shaming moment for me. I associated it with being some sort of degenerate, with not being successful. My mother was a teacher. She was grooming my brother and me to be successful, accomplished people. I didn’t associate being trans, or wearing a dress, with that, or wanting to be a girl with being successful. So it’s something I just started to push down. I wanted to be famous, I wanted to perform. Those things I really, really wanted more than anything else. Continue reading

Black Gay Dads Get A Book Deal Thanks To You Guy’s Social Media Outrage & SUPPORT

“Laughing all the way to the bank! Thanks Bitches” That was my motto when I first embarked upon this whole Funky Dineva endeavor. When I started with the the wigs and the occasional lipstick, narrow minded people could not get pass the gay of it all to receive the gift of it all. The gay of it all seemed to have trumped the intellect of it, the humor of it, and the brilliance of it all. I know first hand that this is a sentiment that Kordale Lewis understands all too well. I heard a quote the other day that said something along the lines of “we will throw a party, forgive, and love a murderer, but hate a gay for loving a man” Kind of deep huh?

The framed photo above garnered Kordale Lewis and his partner Kaleb so much attention, that Kordale was offered a book deal. The fact that the photo sparked so much outrage is evidentiary of how love starved our world is. Oh well, as the old adage goes, “when life gives you lemons, turn it into lemonade”.  That’s exactly what Kordale did!

Gay Dad Reveals the Real Story Behind their Popular Family Picture

Atlanta – Kordale Lewis, one of two gay fathers who appeared in a selfie with two of his biological children, has released his much-anticipated memoir, “Picture Perfect?” with hopes to answer some of the many questions he got when the picture went viral, reaching people in all parts of the world, including Spain, France, Japan, Great Britain, Russia, the West Indies, and South America.

When Lewis, 25, snapped a picture of him and his partner, Kaleb, 25, brushing his daughters’ hair for school, he thought nothing of it. “I just thought it would be a cool picture, so I posted it on Facebook and then to Instagram,” he says. Although he had posted other family photos with him, Kaleb and their three children (son Kordale Jr. was not pictured in the viral selfie), this particular picture seemed to endear itself to people all over the world. “I think it was so interesting to so many people because it showed two black dads actively taking care of their kids and just loving them.”
