Act of Gay Salutes Gay Heroes and Heroines! – Go Montenegro!

Take a second and imagine what it must be like to be the first public figure to ever come out of the closet in your country.  The first!  Well, in the tiny but beautiful country of Montenegro, this only happened two years ago!  This very macho part of ex Yugoslavia seemed to live in a state of blissful ignorance about their LGBT people until the emergence of Zdravko Cimbaljevic, an extremely brave man, a hero, who came out to his family and country following a violent homophobic attack against him.

Despite being disowned by his own father, he’s moved forward to become a human rights leader for LGBT people in Montenegro and was one of the organizers of this week’s first Pride march there.

Unfortunately, when you live in a country that is heavily steeped in patriarchal tradition, where any traits considered feminine would be something for a man to be ashamed of, this is what a Pride march has to look like.  Despite police protection, the marchers were subjected to a torrent of abuse and violence from ignorant and bigoted protesters.

This was the picture of intolerance and hate that the brave Montenegrin Pride marchers had to face down.  It has been said many times recently that while equality spreads across some parts of the ‘west’; the USA and Western Europe, other parts of the world seem to be seeing an increase in homophobia and violence.  But for a country like Montenegro, this is not a good idea as they are trying to gain recognition in the European Union and this may prove to be a bitter set back.  You truly can judge a country by how it treats its vulnerable citizens and who wants a country that allows thugs and idiots to attack people expressing themselves freely.

In a classic act of closing the stable door after the horse has bolted and is 10 miles down the road, the Prime Minister of Montenegro said,

that his government “supports protection of human rights for all people without difference.”

The EU Wants You to Be Nice

Because Montenegro clearly has not experienced the power of the gay yet and because some of them appear too stupid to understand what being nice to people means, Act of Gay feels obliged to draw their attention to things that happen to countries that are not nice to their gays.

For example, roads can be easily washed away with a bit of flooding.

Oh whoopsie.  You wouldn’t want an Act of Gay to make that any worse now would you?

Being Nice Can Prevent Landslides

Now of course Act of Gay could get upset enough to do other things that would make life uncomfortable. As well as landslides, we are always good friends with Mother Nature (as she is actually a naughty little lesbian thing) and we were just discussing the weather in Montenegro.  How would you like a heatwave?   Oh well, blame your nasty homophobes as they are the ones who brought you into the Act of Gay radar.  How about over 105 F or 40C. That hot enough for you?  That might make more men take off their shirts and then, who knows what might happen?

Getting Hot in Montenegro?

Or we could get down and dirty and make sure that the name of Montenegro is not just sullied and embarrassed internationally by dirty rabble throwing stones at people because they are different.  We could point out that Montenegro seems to be associated with international smuggling and well, that won’t make EU citizens likely to support any moves to bring Montenegro into the EU now will it?

Cigarette Smuggling? Really? Anyone for a fag?

Well Montenegro, Act of Gay is giving you some fair warning here.  OK, we’re sending a bit of international humiliation and bad weather your way, but we’d really love you to play nice.  Appreciate your LGBT people.  You have a beautiful country and they just make it even more beautiful.  If you don’t, you’re going to look like a bunch of ass backwards, uneducated and bigoted fools.  Your choice.

Meanwhile, we would like to invite our Act of Gayers to listen to this inspiring interview with Zdravko Cimbaljevic about coming out to his family and country, why and how that has affected  his life.  We salute you Zdravko!

Putin’s Closet – Russia Looking Very Silly and Mean

Rainbow Dingos to Plague Australia

Image

Fierce and frightening gay dingos are running rampage in Australia it seems.  Act of Gay suggests that Australian legislators should get off the fence and stop acting like a bunch of wombats.  (Act of Gay just wanted an excuse to refer to wombats, which are incredibly cute but not particularly fierce.)

Seriously though, how can Australia even waver on this issue with Aussies being well known to delight in a bit of gay parading.  If Australian legislators are really trying to deny the authenticity of Australia’s essential gayness, please explain this…

For goodness sake Australia, this is why Act of Gay has had to become involved. We really didn’t want to, but we had no choice and look what you’ve made happen.  A plague of wild dogs is now threatening your sheep industry.  Please don’t force us to discuss sheep any more than this in the context of a blog on sexuality.  We will just gently suggest that you could save your sheep by being nice to your gays.

Gay Dingos on Rampage

Get rid of your gay hating politicians like DLP senator John Madigan, who clearly has no understanding of the history of marriage.

If They Can Vote on Our Rights, We Should Be Able to Vote on Theirs

Marriage existed long before your belief system did Mr. Homophobe Madigan, so shut up, sit down and let people marry the consenting adults that they love – unless you prefer sheep of course and we all know, Mr. Madigan, sheep can’t consent!

The Great Wine and Toilet Paper Disaster

wine TP

By now, world powers will have heard of Act of Gay as subversive queers begin to spread the word. So there is no excuse for the homophobic slurs and behavior of Venezualas new President, Nicolas Maduro, who seems to completely misunderstand the act of ‘down low’.  By loudly shouting that you like women and that you have a wife could suggest to many that  you are protesting much too loudly.  President Maduro, could your actions and words have brought an Act of Gay upon Venezuala? Curious minds want to know.

Calling Your Opponent a ‘Princess’ is Hardly Manly

We shall have to wait no longer it seems as only an Act of Gay could wreak the sort of havoc that a shortage of wine and toilet paper could bring upon any country.  Oh yes!  It has been announced that monks must now not only hide their sexuality in a closet, but their wine as well.

Venezuelan Wine Riots

That alone would be enough, but no, there’s more.  Toilet paper contraband.  Not to be outdone by monks, it seems that organised crime has begun to control the flow.  So, a word to the wise of Venezuala…tell your President to play nicely with the other boys and stop using homophobic slurs as we all prefer miracles to disasters.

Dirty Bottoms May Soon be Rampant in Venezuala

Red Eyed Crunchy Bugs Invade

Oh Virginia, with a name that sounds like Virgin.  Embrace your gays or embrace a plague of Cicadas.  Your choice.  It appears another Act of Gay has befallen Virginia residents.

“It is so loud it sounds like a UFO is landing,” she said. “It is definitely an invasion.”

“They’re ugly; they’re gross,” she said. “I don’t like bugs. They’re just everywhere.”

“All you see is the cicadas,” Mason said. “You can’t hardly see the flowers.”

The Great Virginia Bug Invasion

Virginia, we want you to see your flowers.  So, we think it might be wise to consider escorting the extremely rude and unpleasant GOP candidates out the front door and shutting it.  All Virginians deserve your love – except these meanies, who deserve nothing but a plague…and well, there you have it.   Love your gays or an Act of Gay may just come down to ‘bug’ you.

Virginia GOP one the Wrong Side of History

Men of War – and We’re Not Talking Marines!

From Carnivoraforum.com

Florida, the land of sun, sea and thongs has made sure that its fabulous gays can’t get married. Now why would they want to do that?  Especially when it might put them at risk of an Act of Gay.  When adults are in love, we’re supposed to celebrate under the palm trees and go to Disney World.  Now look what’s happened.

Getting Stingy with it in Florida

Luckily the invasion of Man of War is only a minor inconvenience and not a true natural disaster, so Florida – as hurricane season is upon us – we urge you to reconsider.  We all should know by now that happy gays make for happy places.

Mangy Mangoes?

Southern winds and hailstorms resulting in a poor crop of Mangoes.  If you were superstitious,you might believe that this could be an Act of Gay.

Mangy Mangoes

This week it was reported that two Pakistani lesbians were forced to seek asylum in the UK and became the first Muslim same sex couple to legally marry in a civil ceremony there,  Meanwhile, homosexuality continues to be criminalized in Pakistan with parts of the country applying the death penalty under Sharia law.  Now that is just plain terrible and it seems that someone thinks that mangoes need to suffer as a result.
