Angelo backs Buck Angel


I got many perplexed comments from friends about the Buck Angel phenomenon. For those who dont know him Buck Angel is the most famous female-to-male transexual porn star. (See 2005 posts of this blog too) He is bi-sexual and proud of being a transman with female genitalia. Read his Wiki here

Anti-Gay -Anti-internet


I have been busy working for the show in Sao Paolo and I did not follow-up on Turkey's ridiculous ban of YouTube.com. This happened in response to a greek-turkish exchange of videos on the site depicting Kemal as gay and Greece as the birthplace of homosexuality. In any case if you just happen to be in Turkey, YouTube is still available through Firefox and you can still access YouTube videos embedded in other pages. To all these fascist morons, esp turks and greeks: Kemal maybe was gay, so what? and thank god homosexuality was born in Greece so shut the fuck up!

Rio scenario

The Sugar Loaf magnificent view with Copacabana in the background

going up
the boy from Ipanema goes walking...

sneaking into Sunday afternoon mass


the plane lands literally in downtown Rio


This weekend Andreas and I went to Rio de Janeiro. One scenario is that Rio is always more beautiful in reality than you see in the photos, another one is that you see the sexiest and friendliest people in the world and another one is that it has a climate that even Greece feels like Antarctica. Perfect, perfect...more on YouTube soon
