Mike Diamond, whom we love, is doing a new a wonderful series called "Homewerq" in which he provides a tidy education for young gays everywhere in important topics like size queens and the hanky code. Above, the latest in the series in which Mike and sidekick Mattinga discuss gay (and tranny) terminology like "you look good and good" (which is what you say to a queen who looks busted) and "bean queen." Below, he talks gay icons with Hedda Lettuce.

Oh Britney. Can we say we never liked her? Yeah, we never liked her. You can bitch all you want about what a phenomenal talent she is, and we will laugh at you. You hear us? We will laugh. Anyway, here's a fun morphy photo montage of Britney through the years, up to her current ripe old age of 30. Long may she morph. [BuzzFeed]
A new bunch of remixes of Casey Spooner's track 'Faye Dunaway,' off his album Adult Contemporary, are due out on Monday (look for links here). In honor of that, we post, below, a funny video upload where the original song is set to that famed video of the really drunk guy stumbling around that convenience store and destroying shit, which we found sort cute. Download the full vocal remix by Tareq for free via his website.
An early 80s MTV classic. Sorry about the quality of the video, and it gets a little jumpy, but anyway... a nostalgic moment to get you through the end of your day.
Much hubbub spread across the gay Fbooks of SF today as rumors swirled that Britney might not be performing the concert SHE PROMISED she'd be doing in the "historic Castro districk" for Good Morning America. Instead, the concert's getting moved to Bill Graham Civic Auditorium next to City Hall, possibly because of rain, or because GMA fucked up with the permits. Many a Castro queen is SORELY disappointed about this development, but says drag queen bee Heklina, "Can we now worship real gay icons and focus on mourning Liz?" Also, she adds of Britney, "Stupid cow." [SFist]
The song's called "Cardiac Arrest." As Spin reports: "The track, which was first released in 2010 by Teddybears with singer Mapei, is a disco burner, spiked with psychedelic guitars and skittering synths. But it transforms into a white-hot anthem in the chorus, as Robyn delivers tongue-twisting, hip-hop-inspired lines like 'Baby Barbie on barbiturates' while commanding you to 'Shake your bone maker.'"
"I like big muscles and red corpuscles, I love a beautiful hunka man..." (From Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.)
P.S. Half the homosexuals in Hollywood in the 50s are in this number.
We just saw little Jakey Shears in San Francisco last week, performing with the Sisters at the Fox in Oakland and popping in at Juanita MORE!'s afterparty. And here he is flexing one of his famous muscles in a new photo by Mario Testino alongside Debbie Harry in V Mag's New York Issue. The issue has two alternate covers, one of which features Marc Jacobs Lady Gaga-as-the-Statue-of-Liberty, and the other features Marina Abramovic holding Tyson-Ballou-as-Jesus. See the rest of the images below.
"She allowed her fans (she called them 'friends') to gather near her Bristol Avenue home. She put them to work doing odd jobs around the yard and house or helping with the mail. They scrubbed floors and cleaned out the garage and basement.
"If her loyal subjects had nothing better to do than wait for a glimpse of her, she'd give them something constructive to do, and they were honored to get down on their knees. Depending on her mood, she would pay them, but most often she would not. Being able to serve their idol was payment enough."
How many of those "loyal subjects" do you suppose were closeted Hollywood queens? [Musto]
We thought Pride season was over, but gay festival mainstay Martha Wash, who's been earning her meal ticket aboard Pride floats for the better part of the last two decades, will be joined by even bigger diva Chaka fucking Khan at this year's Oakland LGBTQ Pride (you know they've got a lot of lesbians over there when they throw in the Q). The fest happens on Sunday, September 5, right after church, and the sissy boys from all over the Bay should be in attendance. [East Bay Express]
Does anyone have a copy of Blow the Man Down we could borrow?
Please check out a couple of these marvelous cover images, and titles, from gay pulp fiction in the 50s and 60s. Ah, if only we could be an oppressed, secret sexual minority in the pre-internet days, when all we could score for our furtive masturbation materials were such gems.
We predict a renaissance of pulpy erotica as people begin reading more on their little phone screens and tablet computers... but don't take our word for it. Two more after le jump.
How hard is it to get a little camera time with Liz Taylor these days? James St. James and The Daily Freak Show head out in the rain to Beverly Hills to a new jewelry shop opening up next to a California Pizza Kitchen. But it's not just any jewelry shop, it's The House of Taylor, and Elizabeth Taylor herself is promised to be making an appearance. James, naturally, completes fags out left and right, and the whole time (as they wait 2 hours for Liz not to show up) he's carrying around his well-worn copy of the play "Suddenly Last Summer" for her to sign. The best part about the video is that he admits he stole it from the Saginaw Township library back when he was a wee faglet because he figured out it was about gayness. [WOW]
