See @AnnaLinaAagenes from @GO_Athletes speak on panel on being bi


Our friend Anna Aagenes of GO! Athletes appeared on a panel on Alicia Menendez Tonight on Fusion TV.

13 percent of women and nearly six percent of men are attracted to both men and women, and yet only two percent identify as bisexual, according to a 2002 study by the National Survey of Family Growth.

As American Institute of Bisexuality board member, Brad Kane, puts it, “Even within the gay community, I can’t tell you how many people have told me, “Oh, I wouldn’t date a bisexual.” Or, ‘Bisexuals aren’t real’.”

We talked to three bisexual adults about stigmas attached to the label in both queer and heterosexual communities.

Australian video says that sport is the best way for a gay man to find a husband

HOLDHANDSSYDNEYHook-ups in bars? Online apps? Nope! If you want true lurve, practice sport together. Not sure about the message, but the guys are rather attractive…

From Instinct magazine:
Sydney Mardi Gras certainly closed with a bang. The country that brought us the pivotal viral video “It’s Time” back in 2011 has done it again with “Marry Me,” a look at a gay surfer’s modern day quest for love set against breathtaking backdrops and a soundtrack of Macklemore’s “Same Love.” Does a succession of hookups pay off for our star? Grab a tissue and click play on the video that was created to close out Sydney Mardi Gras 2014 over the weekend to find out!

A look at #GayGames Tom Waddell Award winner Brent Nicholson Earle in Queerstory

brentnicholsonearleFrom Tony Scupham-Bilton’s always fascintating Queerstory blog, an article on the “HIV Soldiers”, featuring Tom Waddell Award winner Brent Nicholson Earle.

Raising awareness of AIDS need not be vocal. Actions speak louder than words sometimes. Action from governments in the form of funding and provision of health care is only part of the job. Charity fundraising has always been part of any cause. Ways to raise money are endless, and one which also serves as an act of remembrance is one created by Brent Nicholson Earle – a long-distance run.

Brent’s first run, the American Run for the End of AIDS (AREA) in 1986 came about as a result of the deaths of many of his friends and was inspired by a similar charity run by a Canadian HIV patient. Funds were raised for many local AIDS and gay men’s health projects along the 9,000 mile route through the USA and Canada.
Building on it’s success Brent organised several other runs coinciding with the Gay Games and ending in the host city. This evolved into the International Rainbow Memorial Run, which acts like a kind of Olympic torch relay, carrying the Rainbow Pride flag from the home city of the Gay Games, San Francisco, to the games’ host city.
