I liked Matt Damon and Michael Douglas but Rob Lowe looks the best in Behind The Candelabra. The Liberace & Scott Thorson love story is probably the Gay Impact Movie of the Year.
Can’t wait for Pride weekend and all the Jägispresso shots. Check out Mary and my schedule below.

Join us in the Toronto Pride Parade this Sunday.
I’m going to be djing on the AGYU float and Mary Messhausen is going to Pride it up.
The Art Gallery of York University (AGYU) Dreams BIG at Pride Toronto this year! AGYU and artist Matthew-Robin Nye team up with the Trans, Bi, Lesbian, Gay Alliance at York (TBLGAY), York Federation of Students (YFS), and the SexGen York Committee for the We Demand Redux with a booth at the Pride Street Fair on Saturday July 2nd to Sunday July 3rd and a specially designed float in the 31st annual Pride Parade on Sunday 3rd July 2011, starting at 2pm at Bloor and Church Street.
This year marks the 40-year anniversary of the ‘We Demand’ March in Canada. The march was comprised of about 150 men and women on a rainy day on Parliament Hill in Ottawa with placards stating ‘We Demand!’ with a list of ten required amendments to the Canadian constitution on items related to sexuality.
We Demand Redux is a series of actions, which bring attention to issues facing the Queer community today. Functioning as an education campaign, We Demand Redux honours the history of the Gay Rights and affiliated movements over its 40-year history in Canada. This open-ended campaign is an homage to the leaders of this community both present and past who have shaped one of the most progressive democracies in world history. We Demand Redux empowers the audience to create their own demands, give voice to their frustrations, and issues of interest during the Pride Parade.
The We Demand Redux demands your attention and participation! With a custom designed float and message campaign – visible through tshirts, placards, ballots, and the York University booth – the We Demand Redux looks at the past and forward to the future of Queer activism in Canada. Backing up the redux, DJ Produzentin and Mary Messhausen perform live, bouncing the truck with a heavy, house-pop remix.
How to participate:
DEMONSTRATE! March with us in the Pride Parade
SUBMIT! Your demands at the wedemand.tumblr.com
VISIT! The booth to cast your ballot in person.
SUPPORT! Partner with the project.
The We Demand Redux strives to provide a galvanized platform for all to draw attention to the history of LGBT activism in Canada, contemporary issues faced by members of the broad queer community, the de-politicized nature of the Pride Parade, and to reinvigorate an exciting history.
I first saw this clip when Cody Critcheloe of SSION tweeted it two weeks ago. Forgot about it and remembered today.
This afternoon I thought, it would be genius to have Ke$ha at Hotnuts with her vapid lyrics and exactly this performance. On the other hand, the tiny German flags on the backup dancers’ outfits make me want to roll my eyes into the back of my head. Or to quote a line from the song: “Our bodies going numb.” But I don’t want to let these things take the great camp of the performance away from me.

It’s been three years since our last Hallonuts Hotween. More then enough time to bring back the scariest of all Hotnuts: We will ram the Beaver with baby pumpkins & toddler ghosts. Come early to avoid lineup!

OMG so OOC. That was so much fun. Thank you for making Pridetoberfest all about Hosen- and Dirndl-SPASS. Only abroad can this German girl handle so much gay Germanness.
Tante Karen started the evening by djing her favourite deutsche Sänger: Heino. What a treat that was for all of us! And the highlights just kept on rolling out of the barrel: Polka Queen Maija worked the accordion with a traditional Scorpions song, we had a Chug-A-Lug and a corndog eating contest. And not to forget, a super lustige sausage strut around the Beaver Stube.
Pridetoberfest is what we want every month. Can’t wait for next year.
(On a side note, I have sold this website to facebook for $1. The advantage is that you can leave comments with your facebook login. Just hit the “facebook connect” button at the end of this post and comment along. Thanks, proddy)
More pics after the jump, tons more on flickr.
Let’s roll out the barrel! Your two favourite parties of the year like a double dildo, broken in half and shoved into one gay hole. Eat your bretzel under the gay rainbow.
It’s all about Gemütlichkeit.
Enjoy a chicken dance with your friends at the Beaver Stube.
Tante Mistress and Tante Proddy are here to show you the love of Pridetoberfest.
