Vintage Adult Film Star Cole Tucker Has Died At 61

tucker02Cole Tucker, who became one of the most prominent adult film performers of the the 1990s, passed away June 7 in Palm Springs, reportedly from AIDS-related illness at age 61.

The death of Tucker, whose real name was Rick Karp, was confirmed by TitanMen’s Keith Webb, who writes on website Str8UpGayPorn (link NSFW):

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, June 13 at 11:00 a.m. at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, 1020 East Ramon Road in Palm Springs. The family invites Rick’s friends and colleagues to join us.

Rick was one of the most iconic and beloved gay porn-stars of my generation. He won Gay Performer of the Year in 1998 from both GayVN and Grabbys. He was a legendary porn star, emphasis on star, that was one-of-a-kind…they don’t make them like him anymore.

Cole Tucker was a character that he created to entertain the world. Rick Karp was the sweet, funny, smart, generous and hardworking man I knew. Rick was not only an amazing performer, he was also a personal friend and our realtor in Palm Springs for the past seven years.

Mati Weiderpass Gets Kicked Out Of Fire Island Gay Bar And The Crowd Goes Wild

Mati-WeiderpassOUT NYC Hotel owners Ian Reisner and Mati Weiderpass’ private dinner Ted Cruz is back in the news, and not in the way they would like.

Page Six reports that last weekend, Weiderpass (pictured here with the awful GOP presidential candidate) was kicked out of a Fire Island gay bar after his mere presence got on everyone’s nerves.

Then disgraced hotelier was sitting with some friends at Sip-n-Twirl on Sunday.

“One guy got up and asked him what the rationale was to have dinner with Cruz,” bar patron Evan Lobel tells Page Six. “They got kind of heated and before you knew it, there was a lot of people yelling.” Not the kind of thing that usually happens in a gay bar, safe to say.

That’s when owner P.J. McAteer approached the table. He told Weiderpass to leave or he would call the police.

“Upon their departure, the crowd cheered,” Lobel said.

Coincidentally, at the same time this was unfolding, a gay rights group was flying a banner over the island calling for people to boycott Weiderpass’s ex-lover-turned-business-partner Ian Reisner’s Fire Island business development.

After the incident, Weiderpass released the following statement: “P.J. McAteer is condemning me for what he perceives as my thoughts and beliefs by asking me to leave a venue open to all. As small-minded as that is, I have been and will always be an advocate for LGBTQ issues.”

Except, of course, for that time he hosted a private dinner for one of the most vocally antigay Republicans in America.

High School Student Uses Senior Quote To Come Out In High Style

barrett

As coming out becomes increasingly commonplace, you really have to go that extra mile to not get lost in all the streamers, confetti, and warbly Diana Ross covers. Maxwell Barrett, an 18-year-old senior at Raritan High School in Hazlet, New Jersey, rose to the occasion well: His senior yearbook photo (which finds him dressed smartly in tuxedo and bow tie) was published alongside the following kicky quote:

“Of course I dress well, I didn’t spend all that time in the closet for nothing.” –Anonymous

He’s quick to point out that most of his friends already knew, and, though he’d never broken the news to his parents, he could tell they suspected. “I had never done sports, or clubs. I was always just an art student,” he tells Huffington Post. “It was more of a confirmation to [my parents] than a coming out story.”

Barrett claims a yearbook supervisor was against running the quote (a slightly tweaked version of a quip he’d found online.) However, Hazlet Township Public School Superintendent Bernard Bragen couldn’t confirm whether that ever happened, telling HuffPo “my understanding is that it was never pulled.”

As for his motivations? Barrett says he simply “wanted to go out with a bang.”

He certainly managed to come out with a bang.

Hate Crime Victim Claims Police Intentionally Left Gay Slurs Out Of Official Report

Screen shot 2015-06-11 at 12.08.18 PMA gay man in Alabama man says he was violently attacked outside of a bar but that police left a significant chunk of the story out of the official report.

At a press conference held at the Free2be Safe offices in Huntsville, AL, Gary Bravo (pictured) said two men shouted antigay slurs as they pummeled him as he tried he tried to come to the aid of friend.

According to Bravo, however, police neglected to include the hate inspired language in the report on the incident.

“You’re an officer of the law,” Bravo scolded. “You should not object to putting something in a report. Everything should be taken down. It should not be ignored just because I’m a gay man and you don’t want to hear it.”

Darryl Lawson of Huntsville PD denied the details were left out because Bravo is gay, saying the department doesn’t include “he said this, she said that” narratives in reports.

Since Alabama’s hate crime law doesn’t include sexual orientation, the antigay slurs wouldn’t be a factor in the case anyway, he said.

“It would still be an assault-second charge,” Lawson said. “The only time the hate crime law comes into play is as an enhancement to whatever the sentencing is.”

Bravo, meanwhile, has been “in and out of doctor’s offices non-stop” for the past week.

He said that no matter one’s beliefs, everyone should see the doubly damaging effect of hate inspired language.

“Because beating someone up [verbally] after they’ve already been beat up, you’re kicking someone when they’re down,” he said.

Penn State Fraternity Pledge Sues After Being Raped During Rush Party

600_frat_houseIn a mirror image of the debate over sexual violence against women on college campuses, Reginald Stewart is suing another man, Charles Gibson, and the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity, alleging he was raped while intoxicated.

Stewart, 19 when the incident took place in 2013, attended a rush party hoping to join the fraternity. The lawsuit claims that he was served several drinks by fraternity members, even though they knew he was underage and ever after he had reached a point of inebriation.

According to court documents, Stewart was escorted back to his dorm by Gibson and another frat brother. When he regained consciousness, Gibson was penetrating him anally without his consent, but he was too drunk to fight off the attack.

Stewart claims he contracted HPV and had to undergo reconstructive surgery to repair damage to his rectum.

Like similar incidents involving male on female rape, this one boils down to a “he said, he said” fight. According to Philly Mag, Gibson doesn’t deny having sex with Stewart that evening, but he claims it was consensual. He also denies giving Stewart HPV, calling the lawsuit “frivolous.” (HPV is an extremely common STD that can lead to anal cancer if not monitored and treated later in life.)

Philly Mag points out that this is not the first time a Phi Kappa Psi fraternity has been the target of sexual assault allegations and hazing allegations. In 2013, a hazing incident at the University of West Virginia resulted in criminal charges and the frat’s suspension.

Stewart seeking $450,000 in damages for the personal injury, assault and battery claims.

Nick Jonas Gives Gay Men Another Reason To Love Him By Saving Pittsburgh Pride

Screen Shot 2015-06-12 at 1.05.21 PMWhether or not you agree that Iggy Azalea deserved all the backlash she got from LGBT groups over her so-called homophobic Tweets, can we all just agree that it’s for the common good that she won’t be playing this year’s Pittsburgh pride?

Of course, her very late exit from the program left a big empty headline spot for the festival to book.

But have no fear, Nick Jonas is here. He heard about the Iggy drama and contacted the festival, offering to step in last-minute and fill the slot. We’d say there are a few other slots we wouldn’t mind him filling, be we wouldn’t do that. Would we?

“When I heard about the difficult position Pittsburgh Pride was in just days before their event, I knew I had to find a way to help,” he said in a statement on Thursday.

“I’m excited to do what I can to support the LGBT community in Pittsburgh, and I look forward to seeing you this Saturday as we celebrate together.”

Jonas to the rescue.

LeBron James Flashes His Little King On Live TV

lebron flash

Leave it to King James to class up the NBA Finals — that’s a thing, right? My straight roommate hasn’t been home in a while and so I haven’t been forced to watch any sports as of late.

Anygay, just before — rather appropriately — tipoff, ABC caught Cleveland Cavaliers Small Forward (wait, that can’t be right) and all-around bad bitch LeBron James adjusting his basketballs.

Some eagle-eyed fan spotted that dick and next thing you know the internet’s pulled one of those spy movie jobs — y’know, slow down and enhance (nsfw).

Good times. And good for LeBron. And good for us all, really. Long live the King.
