One Gay Guy

The purpose of this podcast is to stimulate meaningful, significant and powerful conversation about the topics that effect our daily lives. Some of the content is silly, some serious....but it is all designed to raise awareness in a playful way! My desire to do this far outweighs my means to so the first few episodes are bare bones podcasts.... no magic, bells or whistles. Just me and my cell phone working together to send a powerful message! We hope you like. Wh hope you send us feedback...keep it funny and thoughtful though....hopefully together our conversations will help change the world....Can One Gay Guy accomplish such a feat? Well I'm gonna try. Hopefully you will watch this podcast blossom into something really neat! We'll see!

While same sex marriage was legalized in 2015, the LGBTQI community took some pretty rough hits in 2016. (You know what I'm talking about.) Consequently, the world will be much different for us all in 2017.

This podcast is "One Gay Guy's" attempt at making a difference for all of us. Some listeners might be out there lonely because they have finally come to terms with their sexuality but worry that their family and social circle won't be able to. Some listeners don't know how to come out. Others have been ostracized and isolated to the point of depression...pondering suicide. I have been there. I know what all of these feelings are like. You are not alone in this world.

This podcast is designed to playfully discuss issues relevant to the LGBTQI etc community. We will discuss culture, art, music, politics, religion and a variety of other topics. As beginners we are starting bare bones here so it is our hope that you will also have the opportunity to watch us grow from a baby podcast-ling to a full blown adult, strong, fully loaded podcast. Along the way we hope to keep you company, keep you entertained, inspired, and on your toes when it comes to advocacy.

Can One Gay Guy change the world? Well I look at it like this.... if I can help a baby gay feel more comfy in his or her skin.....if I can ease someone through the coming out process, if I can take away your loneliness on your drive to work or while you are trying to fall asleep at night.....mission accomplished. So imagine what we can all do if we worked together.....

The Beasts of Henagar

As a gay man who went to see beauty and the beast I want to share some of my sentiments.

Director of the movie, Bill Condon made a comment that there was a “Gay Moment” in the movie and suggested the charicter LeFou (Gaston’s sidekick) was the one who had it. 

Now I saw the movie folks.  I don't even know if I even went to see it because i love the movie as much as I went to see it over the uproar it caused.  I had to see for myself what the stink was about. And before I share what I believe the “Gay Moment” was… I want to take a minute to discuss all the drama this caused.

A Theatre in Alabama….you know one of those places where their bible is shoved so far up their asses as children  that the only thing that comes out of their mouths as adults is psalms…. yeah thats the place! They got wind of this comment and before they could even see the movie they banned it…. sparking a vicious debate about gay characters on television as well as prompting questions around what “a gay moment” is  and what we consider censorship material.

This brings me right back to my sentiments about religion. If being gay is against your religion….don’t be gay. Thats one thing. It’s an entirely different thing for you to force your proverbs and psalms down everyone elses throat. If you don't like it….shut up and don't like it. Do you see budhists trying to shove their beliefs down your throat…NO. Jews? No. In fact…the only people I can legitimately compare Christians to these days is ISIS who’d rather cut off your head than see you precutce something other than christianity. The similarities, at least metaphporically, are staggering. Stay the goddamn out of my life. Your religion is not my law. 

By the way Russia went out on an all out campaign against the movie too …one lawmaker took the time to pull his face out of his vodka long enough to tell their congress that the movie was “a blatant shameless propaganda of sin”

ahhh but on to the good stuff…..
I saw the movie….ok…with my own green pearly eyes. The character who’s been villianized even mores than gaston is named LeFou. He is a loveable guy, sexually ambiguous, slightly effeminate if you ask me…. and he is like most of the side kicks in any movie made for children. Why? because we LOVE this kind of character. He is able to be justifiably abused by the bad guy because he works for the bad guy. He is goofy, clumsy, and I guess if you go by his flourishes and wrist waves….a little “gay”. Doesn't that describes almost EVERY VILLAINS HELPER IN EVERY ANIMATED MOVIE>>>>EVER

The show stopping scene in mention is the one in which he and some bar patrons in a tavern stroke gaston’s ego by pointing out the traits that he possesses more superiorly thank every other person alove. Vein little narcissist. In the scene he dances around on a table and sings sort of flamboyantly.

Gasp……  was there a gay kiss? Nope
Groping……eeeeeh

Dry humping……..xnay

Nudity……uh uh

Same sex kiss? nada

A rainbow, a unicorn, glitter..????

NOTHING…..

So because we have a character who falls into the “stereotype” of what a gay man is in terms of dancing and singing and fun loving….. this not only constituted a GAY MOMENT but also caused a bunch of ignorant  uneducated hicks with no exposure to anyhitng other than their bible classes and a couple markers to make a hate sign….. to cause an unbelievable stir over literally NOTHING…..

What about the villain in Minions…..slightly gay, that dope in ice age, gay,  and all the other movies that have characters with questionable sexual identities…..

I walked away from this movie Happy that disney is making an attempt…albeit flimsy..
I walked away wondering if this is really what our society is reduced to…
I walked away angry at all the people who throw their religion around as if it is supreme law…. maybe it is for them… and I am supposed to respect that….somehow I cannot because they cant seem to respect me.

We need to start a revolution. Religion is great but those who seek to push it on others should be fined or jailed or improsioned or made example of.  Moreover….what the hell kind of religions are people practicee where they think that the way to handle something they deem bad is to act even worse…. is this their loopole for being able to act just as bad if not worse than the people they are condemning. I don't know….last I checked Jesus never taught these lessons…. I have friends and family members who disagree, they feel as though they can bend and thist gods laws into anything that serves them and then in the same breath they hypocritically break the 10 commandments in abundancee…. it really needs to be studied more.  It’s evolved int a mental illness.

I walked away from this movie wondering if we need to start recognizing who the real beauties and beasts are in our society. Are they being portrayed accurately?? because to me the people of the LGBTQ  community, those of us who live our lives without hurting anyone…simply hoping for love and acceptance, those of us who advocate for others…..and want nothing more than to have a happy healthy prosperous life with the one we love…..we’re the real beauties. The beasts…… well… look no further than Henagar Alabama at the Henagar Drive-In a place where the mere word gay sent them into such an ignorant christian frenzy that they embarrassed themselves nationally when they realized that they brought “hate” into a movie that is all about being kind to other people…… I hope this podcast is their witch with a rose.
