The Go-Go’s go bye-bye
After 38 years of rocking out together the Go-Go’s – Belinda Carlisle, Jane Wiedlin, Charlotte Caffey and Gina Schock– have announced a farewell tour. That’s right; these beauties are stopping the beat to head on a permanent vacation without any more stops on the talk show circuit. God bless the Go-Go’s. Don’t you worry fans of the Go-Go’s who live by the Bay-Bay, cause these rocking ladies are kicking there farewell tour off right here in the Tampa Bay area. The only all-female band to top the charts who wrote their own songs and played their own instruments attempted to do a farewell tour back in 2010 but that tour was cancelled when Wiedlin injured her knee, but this time around they are going through with it. So tease up that hair and shake out those leg warmers, because the ‘80s are heading to the Capitol Theatre in August.

The Unbreakbale Cesar Rodriguez
Cesar Rodriguez was well known throughout Tampa and Ybor City. He owned several businesses in the area throughout the 1970s and 1980s, including well known bars frequented by the LGBT community including Rene’s and KiKiKi. He was also well known in the area for having survived several attempts on his life from the mob. Rodriguez passed away March 12 at the age of 85, a long successful life lived with a past that sounds more like the plot of a Godfather movie. Now it’s no secret that the clubs and bars of Ybor City were owned and run by the mob. According to the Tampa Tribune, when Rodriguez tried to expand his business in the Ybor area, a rival mob strapped a bomb to his car attempting to get him out of the way. But lucky for Rodriguez, his daughter’s boyfriend got into the car instead. The teenager received only minor injuries. A few weeks later, Rene’s was set on fire and was ruled arson by local officials. A couple of months after that, two gentlemen tried gunning Rodriguez down with a shotgun, but when the gun wouldn’t fire Rodriguez, the gun-toting thugs had a car chase through the streets of Tampa. Who knew that the streets of Tampa back in the day were directed by Martin Scorsese? Rest peaceful Mr. Rodriguez; your streets are in good hands.

Gay journalist’s ‘personal view’ new in homophobic Serbia

By : Wire Report
Comments: 0

BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — Nenad Mihailovic flouts Serbian taboo. He’s openly gay in a country notorious for strident homophobia. He uses a wheelchair in a society that shows little sympathy for the disabled. And he’s a voice of liberal thinking in a nation where strong leaders have a tendency to quash dissent.

So it’s perhaps surprising that Mihailovic has attracted tens of thousands of viewers to his independent talk show — in which he grills politicians, actors, pop stars and activists on such hot-button themes as gay adoption, same-sex marriages, government corruption and relations with Russia.
