        Toronto's 10 day festival of PanSexual rights, culture and pride ends with the annual parade. Attended by about 1,000,000 people; all parts of our community benefit by the open attitude that prevails. (Some will be offended.) Mostly it's all good fun!

          Update: August 2013, Minnesota recognizes its first gay marriages and I can't help but think of Patrick and Scott who so bravely and gracefully led the way two years ago. Marriage equality felt inevitable but also so far off in the distance - but now it's here! Thank you to this amazing couple for sharing their love and showing us how beautiful the future could be! Marriage equality is something that I'm passionate about and so I couldn't have been more thrilled when Patrick and Scott asked me to film their wedding day. When thinking about what to write here, maybe a political statement, a witty argument, and so on, I quickly realized that nothing I could say comes close to what is communicated through watching Patrick and Scott get married while surrounded by the love and support of their friends and family. Their day was absolutely stunning and every detail was packed with signifigance and meaning, right down to the wedding cake wrapped in vintage postage stamps in honor of Patricks Grandfather who was an avid collector. The Loring Pasta Bar and The Varsity couldn't have been more beautiful and ran more smoothly thanks to the amazing Todd and his wonderful team. It was truly a day I'll never forget and I was so honored to have captured it. Elizabeth couldn't have put it more eloquently during the ceremony, "When our law lags behind, people continue to live their truth and create their own version of a family, and this is what Patrick and Scott are deciding to do today." In lieu of wedding gifts they asked guests to contact their members of congress in support of repealing the defense of marriage act - and if you could do the same that would be amazing. http://www.contactingthecongress.org/ UPDATE: When Scott and Patrick saw their film for the first time they said they wanted the whole world to see it - so it was sent out to friends, tweeted, and posted on Facebook. It then got picked up by some prominent blogs and sites and within the first week it was over 8K views in 97 countries. The response has been overwhelming and positive. Often times gay marriage and homosexuality in general can become just an issue, talking point or simple debate, but Patrick and Scott give it a face and it beautifully becomes so much more. Please continue to share this video with friends and family and celebrate the love and commitment of this amazing couple!

            featuring PINK FLOYD's legendary engineer ANDY JACKSON @ the controls! This song is our contribution to the "IT GETS BETTER" Movement. On the most personal level, this song is about celebrating who you are... especially if you're a teen, like us, just now coming out or thinking about it... whether you self-identify as gay, queer, bear/cub, D/s, sissy, drag queen, questioning or whatever... we all have something very important in common: This is our "Rosa Parks" moment. (Thank you, Lady Gaga, for what you did at the White House today!) On the "macro-level" this is a song about all of us collectively seizing control of the worst derogatory word still out there -- yes, that word "faggot" -- just like how African-Americans seized control of the "N" word and Queer Nation seized control of the "Q" word. It's time we shout from the rooftops, "WE'RE MAD AS HELL & WE'RE NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!" --and mean it. Sure, homophobia will be with us for a long time to come; but gay bashing and bullying MUST STOP NOW - by force, if necessary. So here's the bottom line: Gay Bashers (you know who you are): The next time you pick on someone smaller than you or "weaker" than you, this is your warning: we might LOOK smaller... we might LOOK weaker... but SOME of us (MARKY, for example) some of us know martial arts. And a blackbelt can take out six of you in about six seconds without breaking a sweat. JSYK... sooner or later... you'll pick on one of US... and THEN -- it will be TOO LATE. ................................DOWNLOAD @ iTUNES!................................ http://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/punchitkickit/id458192678

              This is a movie about the gay culture that mostly touches on the perspective of four individuals and their perspectives of what it is like now and for some, what it was like before. It is discussed by a 26 y.o. male, 26 y.o. female, an 18 y.o. male and a retired Uncle who has a number of family members who recently came out. It discusses political, cultural, and social issues with these subjects.

                “3 ERAS of GAY SEX in 3 Minutes”– Viral Valentine Film Celebrates The History and Power of Gay Sex, Fetish & Cruising An Original Three-minute Film by Leo Herrera Visually Spans The History of Homosensual Communication from Pre-Stonewall to Present Day Leo Herrera, a NYC-based visual artist, filmmaker, writer and advocate with a focus on cataloging and presenting gay history, today announced his latest work “3 ERAS of GAY SEX in 3 Minutes” an original piece illustrating 3 generations of gay sex in three-minutes, featuring Pre-Stonewall cruising; 1970’s/80’s Leather BDS&M; and Present Day App usage, filmed in NYC and San Francisco. Instead of presenting gay history as sexless or focusing solely on AIDS, the film celebrates Gay Communication in its most sensual form, through the glances, codes and technological breakthroughs that have allowed gay sex and gay communities to flourish through generations of oppression. Taking us on a time machine into archetypes of Gay Sex and the unspoken communication methods of these communities, “3 ERAS of GAY SEX in 3 Minutes” informs us and a wider audience, of the rich sexual history of the modern gay male; the symbolism and power of our once ‘secret’ encounters; and a glimpse into the infrastructure of deviant gay communities that are the foundations for the modern gay civil rights movement. There is a love for gay culture and iconography that vibrates in the film, from the setting of historic landmark Julius, the SF army barracks and a sex dungeon, to the soundtrack, which features poetry from Walt Whitman, Truman Capote and human pup play master, Pup Boss Jyan. The film stars Gay Hip-Hop artist, Rikki Crowley and HIV Activist Zachary Barnett. It touches upon the themes of technology, PrEP, the closet and gay S&M in a way that’s tasteful and romantic. “This film is about sharing a facet of our history that is rarely represented in mainstream gay media,” said Herrera. “While I applaud the strides we’ve made in our mainstream visibility, it sometimes comes at the expense of our sexuality. Gay fetish is treated as a punchline, or punished with disease. The drag queens and gay characters I see on television do not represent what I see at Folsom Street Fair, or at a Brooklyn gay warehouse party on a Saturday night or any of the Eagles in the country. There is an inherent romance to cruising, a jolt of electricity to our secrets and codes, that’s what this clip is about.” “The idea that as a culture we DO have a past, present and future is something that is very, very powerful. We didn’t come out of nowhere, and we haven’t been standing around waiting to be “accepted”, and we aren’t this monolithic culture that will just be part of any “mainstream”, there are too many facets and subcultures. Who better to tell these stories than ourselves.” The film is a followup to Leo’s “The Fortune Teller,” the 2013 Pride Month Viral hit that presented 50 years of Gay History in 5 minutes, garnering 50,000 hits during Gay Pride Week. About “3 ERAS of GAY SEX in 3 Minutes” “3 ERAS of GAY SEX in 3 Minutes” is Leo Herrera’s most ambitious project to date. It’s comprised of all original footage filmed in iconic gay locations, such as Julius, the Army Barracks in SF, and a gay sex dungeon in Brooklyn. Costumes were provided by Mr. S Leather in SF and the Leatherman in NYC. Leo worked closely with producer Jonathan Daniel Federico, a fellow NYC filmmaker as well as filmmaker Aron Kantor and cinematographer Nathan Lee Bush to realize his vision. About Gay/Artist and Activist Leo Herrera “I grew up an illegal Mexican immigrant in Republican Arizona, as far from “gay” as possible. Yet, the challenges and hopes I’ve faced as a gay man are the same as all of my peers across the world, as if homosexuality can transcend culture, geography and race. Homophobia is the same in New York City as it is in Russia, HIV and its stigma are as devastating in the South as they are in San Francisco, our sexual freedom is as reviled in America as in Uganda…and yet we are all moving forward on a global scale: our contributions to nightlife and the arts are as pronounced in Berlin as they are in Provincetown, the legalization of our unions is spanning continents, the unmistakable softness of our gestures transcends language. I don’t know if these universal similarities make homosexuality a culture, a race or a shared experience. What I do know is that they stir a deep pride in me that is almost religious.” Tag: #FutureGaySex PR contact: aaron@pointblankcomm.com point-bl_nk communications

                  PLEASE take a moment to read about how you can help a good cause close to my heart: www.gofundme.com/gailsstory Soul Mates is a 21st Century American Love Story. Soul Mates deals with the simultaneous growth for two beings as they grow into one collective. A partnership can only be described as "an association of two people," similarly love can only be described as "an intense feeling of deep affection between two or more people." These definitions do not limit themselves to gender, sexual orientation, skin color, creed, or background. People do that. It's time the world understands the true definition of love as a spiritual connection between people. When you meet your soulmate, there's nothing in the world that could every separate those feelings. “People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that's what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life." -Elizabeth Gilbert Eat, Pray, Love

In this colorful trip back in time, Rocco reflects on his incredible life as one of Hollywood’s original boundary pushing gay pioneers. Big Gay Movie is a team of independent filmmakers hoping to raise the funds to complete this exciting project using programs like Indiegogo.
