Atlanta’s Top 10 Grindr Profiles

Atlanta’s Top 10 Grindr Profiles

By D. David Kinney

Atlanta writer Michael Alvear, author of “How To Bottom Like A Porn Star and former co-host of HBO’s “The Sex Inspectors,” has been hard at work assembling a blue ribbon panel of judges to once and for all solve the question–Which men in Atlanta have the hottest Grindr profiles? 

On his website Alvear wrote, “While you can’t ever get around the fact that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, you can lessen the impact of bias by having a diverse panel of judges. That’s why our team put together a panel of 12 judges from all walks of life. They include artists, photographers, attorneys, business folks and social media mavens. Most are gay but we have a couple of straights, too. We even had diversity in age, with judges in their 20′s, 30′s, 40′s and 50′s.” But the panel didn’t just stop there. They also used Grindr in different locations throughout the metro area to leave no Grindr stone unturned. 

I know what you’re thinking. What about age? Alvear thought of that too and included three different age ranges: 21-29, 30-39 and 40-49. Ready to see which sexy Atlanta men came out on top? You can see them all at the links below:

Gay Guys Arise And Unite Against Discrimination

Gay Guys Arise And Unite Against Discrimination

By Mikkel Hyldebrandt

The Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia are about to commence and with it comes controversy, discrimination and even terrorist threats. Even though efforts have been made to boycott and even cancel the games, the wheels are already set in motion and the games are happening. The only thing to do now is to hope for the safety of the athletes and to show the IOC and their sponsors that we don’t accept the games being held in a country that violates basic human rights so grievously. Some are doing this by not watching the games at all. Or do like Danish pop sensation Tomboy by sending lots of love and glitter to Russia in the new “Gay Guy Arise” video released a couple of days ago.

On the official Tomboy Music Youtube page it reads: “With All The Hatred And Discriminating Laws Against Gays, It Was Time To Spread a Little More Glitter.”

And he certainly does. Everything from makeup, hair and costumes are literally doused in glitter. Even a pink unicorn has a glittery horn and a hot pink mane! It’s nothing short of over-the-top fabulous!

But all glitter and glam aside, the message behind the video is really quite simple and perfectly phrased:

“When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace”

Watch the glittery video below and check out the Tomboy’s homepage right here.

Vin Diesel Really Likes Music – And To DANCE!

Vin Diesel Really Likes Music – And To DANCE!

By Mikkel Hyldebrandt

So, just the other day a rather remarkable video surfaced on Facebook featuring actor Vin Diesel, Katy Perry’s song “Dark Horse” and Beyonce’s “Drunk In Love”–and some rather, shall we say, interesting dance moves.

The video was first posted by the actor himself on his Facebook page with the caption: “You know I love music.” Since then it has become a viral sensation due to the fact that he is seemingly dancing around while lip-syncing, sometimes singing along to the two songs, all alone. It isn’t until about midway through the 7-minute long video (3:13) that he turns down the volume and addresses his fans and talks about how grateful he is that his movie Riddick is topping the download charts. “It’s a win for all of us, and really, really, really, thank you so much,” he says before kissing two fingers and goes off to do more swaying and bouncing dance moves. He also takes a moment to talk about the Grammy’s while dancing to Beyonce’s “Drunk In Love” with more of his lonesome, adorable yet awkwardly clumsy dance.

Vin Diesel is continually surrounded by rumors of being gay despite the fact that he lives with a girlfriend and they have a child together. I don’t know if this video appearance will slow down the gay rumor mill. The big question is when will society stop labeling guys based on stereotypes? Gay or not gay, I think this video–however strange and slightly awkward it is–is kind of sweet. It shows a different and more vulnerable side to the action movie star. Who knows – maybe he is really drunk and in love in the clip?

What do you think about Vin Diesel’s video? Comment below.

Atlantans Frozen In Place

Atlantans Frozen In Place

By D. David Kinney

It’s been a tough 24 hours since the snow first started to fall in Atlanta. Hundreds (if not thousands) of motorists became trapped on icy roads throughout Georgia yesterday. Some abandoned their vehicles and sought shelter in drug stores and Home Depot stores. Others stayed in their cars hoping they had enough gas to last until help arrived or the ice thawed. According to CNN and local news reports there are some motorists still stuck in their cars. This is what traffic looked like this morning according to Google Traffic:

Atlanta Traffic Map Snow

The roads in Atlanta continue to improve as the city and state throws ice at them; however, the danger of icy roads is not over. Georgia Governor Nathan Deal and City of Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed continue to urge Atlantans to stay off the roads, if possible. This is what traffic looked like on Google Traffic when this article was updated on Wednesday at 5 p.m.:

The snow certainly caused a lot of headaches, but it has left our city draped in a blanket of white we don’t often see. Here are some shots of Midtown taken Wednesday afternoon:

Get Ready For A Kiss From Kylie

Get Ready For A Kiss From Kylie

By Mikkel Hyldebrandt

Kylie fans can look forward to this early spring where the pop diva will drop her new studio album “Kiss Me Once” on March 18. Although Kylie Minogue’s music has always been rooted in catchy pop music this album will be a return to the dancefloor – a fact backed up by the release of the single “Into The Blue” which is a strong pop tune with an anthem-like chorus and a good beat, which will no doubt fill up dance floors and have you singing along this summer.

Kylie has collaborated with Pharrell Williams and Greg Kurstin (who’s written mega hits for P!nk) on the album so if “Into The Blue” is any indication of what’s in store for us, I personally can’t wait for March 18. Huffington Post has even called the forerunner single “the best pop single you’ll hear all year” – another very good sign! Oh, and the art work (above) looks stunning as always…

The album is available for pre-order on iTunes now and “Into The Blue” can be downloaded already – we suggests you do it, because this is a kiss from Kylie you won’t want to miss!

No Gays In Sochi

No Gays In Sochi

By D. David Kinney

Mayor of Sochi, Anatoly Pakhomov, announced this week that there are no gays in his town. With the attention of the world temporarily fixated on his tiny city by the Black Sea, Pakhomov is using his time on the world stage to utter complete nonsense.

Mayor Pakhomov (Yes… homo is actually part of his name. We’re already singing “Ironic” in our heads.) should know that his statement was inherently silly considering Sochi has two gay clubs. “BBC Panorama reporter John Sweeney went to a gay bar in Sochi the night before interviewing Pakhomov. One patron at the bar told Sweeney that there are two gay clubs in Sochi, and many others across Russia.”

According to the BBC Panorama, “Pakhomov, a member of President Vladimir Putin’s United Russia party, said that homosexuality is not welcome in his region, but that it would welcome gay people with ‘hospitality’ if they respect Russian laws.” 

Is Pakhomov in denial or simply that ignorant about what actually goes on in Sochi?

Video Recap: Beyonce, Gay Weddings And P!nk Takes Flight At The Grammys

Video Recap: Beyonce, Gay Weddings And P!nk Takes Flight At The Grammys

By D. David Kinney

Beyonce proved that family life hasn’t slowed her down one bit in a show opening performance that was dripping with curvaceous sexuality. Just as she got the audience worked into a frenzy Jay Z joined his wife on stage to finish out the song. Last year Jay Z performed “Suit & Tie” with Justin Timberlake during the Grammys. Which one do you like better? 

Some people were groaning that P!nk was did another aerial performance during an awards show. But I was simply mesmerized. The singer proved that she’s got incredible breath control and physical stamina to spare. I’ve been a fan of “Try” since it first dropped and seeing her reinterpret the music video was a treat. Check it out below and see what you think:

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis used the Grammy spotlight to once again shine a light on marriage equality with their 2013 hit anthem “Same Love.” During their number Queen Latifah officiated gay and straight weddings for 33 newlyweds. Joining in on the awesome moment was Madonna, Mary Lambert and Trombone Shorty. Warm your heart a bit with this beautiful performance:

Olympic Uniforms Are Patriotic (To Say The Least)

Olympic Uniforms Are Patriotic (To Say The Least)

By Mikkel Hyldebrandt

The Winter Olympics in gay-hostile Russia are about start and with the commencement comes the all-important parade to welcome all participating nations. The American parade uniforms for male and female athletes were revealed on the Today Show, which spawned a prompt reaction from viewers–and it was not entirely positive. In fact, comparisons were quickly drawn to ugly sweaters and Russian folk dress. One commentator sighed: “can someone please point out the last time the Americans look 100% stylish in the opening ceremony.” Another questioned: “So wait…is wearing sweatpants in public acceptable now? If so this is the best day of my life.” And one just described it as “Wreck-knit Ralph”, referring to the fact that the designer is none other than Ralph Lauren who once again was asked to create the red-white-and-blue Olympic uniforms.

The Team USA collection consists of a knit patchwork cardigan emblazoned with stars ($598), paired with a cream cotton turtleneck sweater ($245), slim-fitting white fleece athletic pants bearing the “Team USA” label ($165), black leather boots with bright red laces ($395), a cotton belt accented with American graphics ($75), and a reindeer hat ($95). All of it can be yours for only $1,573. Well, at least the uniforms are very patriotic…

Maybe Ralph Lauren created these uniforms to give us yet another reason not to watch the Winter Olympics where gay athletes, participants and visitors may face disciplinary action or even arrest for being openly gay and spreading the gay propaganda. But of course, nothing will happen because according to President Putin who in a recent ABC News interview said nothing will happen as long as gays ‘leave the kids alone’. Whatever that means…

What do you think of the new uniforms? All GO or a big no-no?
