China, you are in our big, fat, rainbow Act of Gay eye. Many may not know it, but China has been ahead of the gay game for a while. They decriminalized homosexuality before the USA and appear to be steadily working towards recognition of same sex marriages.
But that is not what has attracted our pink eye. Chinese politicians are certainly not known in the west for being comedians. But Vice Premier, Yang Wang, cracked a joke. Not any old joke, but a joke about gay marriage. Mr. Wang said about his relationship with US Treasury Jack Lew:
“In China when we say a pair of new people, we mean a newlywed couple,” Wang said about himself and Lew. “Although U.S. law does permit marriage between two men, I don’t think this is what Jacob or I actually want.”
Act of Gay loves humor and we love that being gay is something that world leaders will now comment on unashamedly and with gentle laughter. Act of Gay does not see this as a slight to gay marriage at all, but as recognition of its validity. OK, not perhaps between Jack and Wang, but we would never wish to force someone to have a gay marriage, despite what the crazies think. So Jack and Wang, we honor and salute your not gay marriage and wish you all the very best for the future although we do think you’d make a very cute couple.

Act of Gay will make no further pronouncements upon China or the USA for now as we are fully aware that our powers may interrupt important diplomatic negotiations, so, instead, we shall take you around the world to and unlikely hero. A German soccer club!

This is the utterly and uber cool but most unexpected face of LGBT love in Germany. This is a St. Pauli Football (Soccer) Club supporter. Act of Gay love this and are thoroughly impressed. Not only do St. Pauli brandish the skull and crossbones as their insignia, they play AC/DC’s Hell’s Bells as their entrance song and they have banished all right wing elements from their stands. They even have a gay chairman.
As if that weren’t fagulous enough, St. Pauli have just announced…wait for it….wait for it…wait for it……they will now fly the gay rainbow flag, symbolizing gay pride, at their stadium..not for one day…not for one week…not for one month..not for one year…..homoliciously permanently! Act of Gay is now officially a St. Pauli fan, for life!

After announcing that they will proudly be flying the rainbow flag they said:
“The club has been active for many years against homophobia and discrimination,” said St Pauli vice-president Dr. Gernot Stenger. “With this flag, we are giving this highly-visible sign that these issues have great importance at St. Pauli and we are working hard on them.”
Act of Gay needs to turn its great resources upon Germany. Before that, one of Act of Gay’s favored gratuitous man shots from Germany. We just like to share the happiness.
