Going Out with A Bang

Community. What does the word mean to you? For me, it means a sense of belonging, acceptance, and supporting one another. I was really humbled by the slew of emails, texts, and Facebook messages that I received in response to my last editor’s note. Even though the holidays were hard for me because of my family, my community “family” has embraced me with open arms and shown me so much love. I want you to know that I love y’all as well — thank you so much for your kind words. It has been my distinct pleasure to get to know you and serve this community for the past two and a half years. As we enter this new year, remember all those sacrifices that were made to get us where we are today. It’s because of those sacrifices that I’m able to write you this note. This is why I am so proud to honor our Fenuxe 50 in the upcoming Ice Party on Jan. 12. It’s going to be an amazing party complete with more than 27,000 pounds of sculpted ice, a full dinner, an open bar, and performances from the Atlanta Opera, the Atlanta Ballet, the Gay Men’s Chorus, and the Armorettes, but as exciting as all of that is, it pales in comparison to what these 50 do for each of us on a regular basis. I want to personally invite you to the Ice Party and I do hope that you will come to support these 50 individuals who make our city great. To purchase your tickets, visit fenuxe.com/ice Have a great, safe, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

It's the Most Blunder-ful Time of the Year! Ten Jaw-Dropping Election Season Gaffes Berlin Sylvestre, Staff Writer

From Republicans en

ll of Wom

When it was apparent that Obama was sweeping women (voters) off their feet, the Romney team hit the drawing board, searching frantically for ways to show their candidate was sympathetic to the “plight of womankind.” In a spirited speech, Romney told voters that as governor, he ordered a team of researchers to hunt down some qualified women to fill his male-dominated cabinet space in Massachusetts. Sounds pretty good, right? Too bad it wasn’t true. An independent organization came forward saying they presented the subsequently ill-named “binder” to him in a bid to bolster female presence in the state’s legislating body. Whoops! But hey: He made up for that by letting us know he’d at least let women off work in time to get dinner ready. Oof.

Binders Fu

cent

The 47 Per

Isn’t it just a little hilarious that all the smack-talking Romney did about President Carter came back to bite him in the ass when Carter’s grandson unearthed footage of the candidate telling major donors at a closed event that 47 percent of American voters are already in the pocket for Obama? What’s more, he went on to say that that these people, who see themselves as “victims,” and are dependent on government. Well, then! Way to write off half the country as moochers, pal. Democrats gave that performance “two enthusiastic thumbs up!”

Todd “Legitimate Rape” Akin Apparently, no one told Todd Akin during his Senate race that women are allowed to vote; hence, he should be aware that the topic of abortion and rape are hot-button issues. When confronted with the notion that certain victims of rape aren’t keen on bringing the ensuing pregnancy to full term, he advised with gusto that if a rape is “legitimate,” women’s bodies have “ways of shutting that whole thing down.” As a result, doctors, scientists, and (go figure!) women got out the pitchforks and shut his whole campaign down. Senator Claire McCaskill kept her seat in the Senate. In the runnings for Indiana Senate, Tea Partybacked Richard Mourdock dropped this gem on us: “Even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that is something that God intended to happen.” Not only did that smack of religious fundamentalist hackery, it was warm bait for pro-choice advocates who never miss a beat on that kinda thing. After all, if a woman can’t terminate a pregnancy brought on by rape because Christian fundamentalists (among others) don’t believe in abortion, that particular stance gives more rights to the rapists than the raped. Not a good move, buddy. “Don’t forget to write!” Sincerely, Your Senate Seat.

Richard Mourdock’s God/ Rape/Abortion Statement

Paul Ryan’s Dishwashing How do you mess up volunteering at a soup kitchen? Here’s how: Unannounced, you ramrod your way in with your camera crew, you roll up your sleeves and pretend to wash dishes that are already clean, you pose for a few pics, and then you leave a seriously annoyed soup kitchen staff in your wake. Simple as that. Then you say nothing when, after they out you for the disingenuousness of your charity, conservatives threaten the staff and encourage people to pull its funding. Nice work! The pics looked almost as good as your backwards-hat workout poses.


What a year it’s been for political campaigning! With all the mayhem, missteps, and misgivings, compiling a short list was a daunting task, indeed, but I’ve narrowed the gaffes down to those that managed to, if only for a short time, sway the polls.

From Democrats When you’re seen as the party of big “You Didn’t Bu ild This.” government and anti-capitalism by conservatives, you’ve gotta be really careful when you imply that businesses aren’t responsible for their own success. Obama, addressing a crowd in Virginia, dropped a gift in the GOP’s lap. “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” Though taken out of context, as are many sound bites we’re privy to during election seasons, it was still a pretty sloppy statement that even his campaign advisers admit (post-win) was from a speech that “went awry.” Still.

Obama’s Hot Mic Conspiracy theorists, and those who believe (like Romney) that Russia is our number one geopolitical foe, had a ball when Obama spoke candidly with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. The flames were fanned when, during the final moments of their exchange, their mics were left on and Obama was “caught” saying: “This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.” Replied President Medvedev: “I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.” They were speaking of resolving issues of missile defense and giving Obama more time to come up with a solution. Not so much a gaffe, but more of a “caught on tape!” moment, it was used repeatedly by Obama’s criticizers as proof that he’s “palling around with the enemy.” Oh brother.

Hilary Rosen Attacks Ann Romney’s Work Ethic As you can imagine, Republicans were scrambling to prove to women that the GOP embraces “the fairer sex” and that any accusation from Democrats that women aren’t a major concern for them was bull. After all, Democrats never lost an opportunity to point out how Republicans were mostly pro-lifers who didn’t support equal pay for women. Imagine the collective facepalm when, in an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen accused Ann Romney of being a stay-at-home mom who “has never worked a day in her life.” Zoinks! Across the Democratic board, members of team blue hopped on PR and stated repeatedly that mothers have among the “toughest jobs imaginable.” It did little good for the following few weeks, during which the clip was the go-to lead-in for the “Democrats don’t think moms work hard” crusade. Well played, GOP.

House Speaker Nancy

Remember the good ol’ days when Obama, Pelosi: “We have to pass it in full campaign mode, promised to post all to know what’s in it.” potential legislation on the web for the good people of America to read? Wasn’t that the open-door, transparent policy-making, feelgood hit of the summer? (Nice try.) Though the Affordable Care Act (lovingly named “Obamacare”) was initially stated to be 2,400 pages long (by the GOP, naturally) and shrouded in secrecy, it was actually 904 publicly-inaccessible pages and therefore not interpreted very well by mainstream punditry. When confronted on its elusiveness, being told by the Speaker of the House that America must pass it to be privy to it is ... well ... infuriating to a lot of people who don’t like playing the White Elephant Christmas Exchange game with public policy. Tut tut, madame!

Obama’s First Debate

Oh man. Man man man. If there was ever a disjointed, dispirited performance worse than James Franco’s Oscar-hosting debacle, it was Obama’s mumblesome, paper-shuffling, dreadfully disappointing first time debating Romney in the 2012 Presidential Debates. Egads. Before that point, Obama held a slight lead over Romney in the polls. After the debate, Romney’s numbers went on the rise and the race became neck and neck. And we were certain that the teleprompter jokes were a thing of the past. Damn!

to add 10 more years to my life with my friends and family. I have spent the last year doing that. I did not wait for the New Year. I just started. I don’t know what the catalyst was, but I am sure glad there was one. I never really felt bad. I did have dangerously high blood pressure and unhealthy cholesterol levels. It was nothing a few pills couldn’t help. I didn’t want to be dependent on pills to stay alive. I wanted to be healthy. I did not go on a diet; I changed my diet. Don’t get me wrong, I love food, and I enjoy the social experiences around meals with friends. I just didn’t want to suffer the ill effects bad choices had on my body. It wasn’t easy, 55 years of bad eating habits are hard to break. I approached it as an adventure. I learned more about whole foods, nutrition, and the importance of exercise in improving my health. Everyone who sees me now is amazed at my outward appearance. I am thinner. I’ve lost close to 40 pounds. That was

not my focus, but a welcome by-product of my goal to get healthy. It does not happen overnight. You have to make educated choices. It has to be a lifelong change. Find something that takes you from the couch to the gym, from the frig to the garden. Start counting miles instead of shot glasses. My major rule is no guilt. Everything we put in our bodies is by choice. Make conscious choices. I don’t fall off the wagon. I jump off running and jump back on. I know if I have made several unhealthy choices, I will have to pay for those choices with extra miles, a few less bites. I was given only one body. I have a long list of things I want to accomplish. I want to have the time and energy to get it all done. The only way I improve those odds is to treat my body with the respect it is entitled.

I am looking forward to 2013!

SUPREME COURT: “We’ll Hear Your Arguments Now.” Berlin Sylvestre, Staff Writer

We could be lookin’ at the big one, folks. The Supreme Court has decided to rule on two major issues that deeply affect the daily lives of nearly every member of the LGBT community and if the recent spate of major political victories for our community is any indication for the turning of our tides, then it truly appears we’re on the cusp of perhaps our biggest victories yet. Issue one deals with The Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which (in a nutshell) denies samesex couples basic federal rights that married heterosexual couples are privy to, such as taxes and Social Security benefits. Sure, you can get married in a state that allows same-sex marriage (like Maryland, for instance), but your rights as a married couple will only go as far as Maryland allows. The other issue at hand is deciding whether California’s Proposition 8 is unconstitutional. With its stalwart ban on same-sex marriage in a climate where most Americans are now in favor of gay rights, I do believe we’re about to see the Supreme Court strike down an awful piece of legislation. What’s more, a Supreme Court decision in favor of gay marriage has the potential to change national law and overturn every state constitutional provision that bans same-sex marriages.

Ruling DOMA unconstitutional will be the toughest hike to climb, though. The crux of the issue boils down to states’ rights. Many state-level legislators argue a federal ruling that forces every state to recognize our marriages tramples the rights of states to decide their stance on the issue. At any rate, our spot on the Supreme Court’s calendar serves as proof that legislators at our country’s highest level feel this is an issue worthy of serious contemplation. This could be our Loving v. Virginia, a historic ruling that, in spite of the vicious racial prejudices of its day, gave interracial couples the right to marry and be recognized, no matter what individual states had to say about it. It is interesting to note that the court’s decision to visit the subject comes after a recent wave of coast-to-coast LGBT political victories. Perhaps the winds of change have disrupted the stagnancy of fear and bigotry, maybe even to clear the air of injustice. It is undoubtedly a positive step. Putting big social decisions — slavery, women’s rights, and so on — into the hands of the people has historically imparted a miserable forecast for nearly every minority group who has asked (pleaded, even) for equal rights. It’s always been the work of the Supreme Court to sort through these heady affairs and, regardless of the ruckus created by our equally pugnacious left and right, decide whether the rights of the underdog are being violated or whether there is merit to the argument of exclusion. The shift in the American public’s attitude toward LGBT equality issues has been a favorable one for us. We’re experiencing unprecedented media campaigns,

“LGBT citizens should have equal rights.”


Fortunately for us, the U.S. Supreme Court has historically employed a constitutional presence of mind to rule on civil rights issues. Now that our fate has a place on the Supreme Court’s calendar, we should, at the very least, realize the potential for what this may mean. While cutting the mics of lobbyists for and against same-sex marriage, public opinion and “Big Money Politics” is taken out of the mix, leaving constitutional fairness up to those on the bench. (Smile! This usually bodes well for those in search of civil liberties!) In light of America’s new political landscape that is far more comfortable with LGBT issues, it would stand to reason that, at the end of June, when the nation celebrates Pride Month, we’ll be freed from the crippling nature of inequity and persecution. It is a distinctly American assertion — one that our nation was founded upon, even — that all men are created equal. Perhaps it’s time to get back to basics.

{

corporate sponsorships, and support from all around the nation that continually reiterates: “LGBT citizens should have equal rights.”

California voters approved Proposition 8, a ballot measure that prohibited same-sex marriage, in 2008. On Friday, Dec. 8, 2012, the Supreme Court agreed to review the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals’ decision to strike down Prop 8. The Court is also considering a challenge to the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which forbids federal recognition of same-sex marriages, even those that have been sanctioned in the parts of the country that permit samesex couples to wed. By analysing both of these issues, the Supreme Court seeks to answer these two questions: Considering the Constitution’s guarantee of equal protection under the law, do states have the right to forbid same-sex marriages? Does the federal government have the right to deny the validity of a marriage that is legal on a state level?

people smoke pot.

I'm not afraid to say it: Pot is good. Actually, far from being “afraid” to say it, I’ll say it with gusto: Pot is pretty amazing and I don’t think there’s anything shameful about liking it. (Man, that feels good to say.)

With the latest round of political turnovers, citizens in Colorado and Washington are finally able to pack a bowl without fear of being cuffed, tossed in a slammer,

and having their background checks stamped with ‘criminal offender.’ That would now make (count ‘em) 18 states that have decriminalized marijuana in some form or another, but mostly for medicinal purposes. Even Jimmy Carter (on the 11th of this month, actually) told a CNN panel that we need to decriminalize the stuff. To put icing on that cake, for the first time in generations, public polls show that a majority of Americans agree with that very notion. In other words: Most Americans really don’t care if

I actually think it’s been that way for a long time, but the stigma behind shrugging one’s shoulders at pot use has long inferred that you were some kind of tree-hugging liberal. As a (hypothetical but completely reasonable) result, people were not all that comfortable admitting that they A) don’t care about its prevalence and B) actually use it. Regardless, pot smokers in any state should stop being so afraid to admit they occasionally partake. But, as completely sane, contributing members of American society, come out of the pot closet already! If we can come out as

friends of Dorothy, we can step up as lovers of Mary Jane. So, naysayers: Surely you have your reasons. Are they healthrelated? Does smoking pot cause lung cancer? There are no known cases to date and you can trust that if the government had a way to prove that it did, it’d be all over headlines. Does it create a lazy army of do-nothings? Hardly. The most productive people in my life smoke pot. Has it ever killed anyone as a result of overdose? There isn’t a single shred of evidence of that, no. We can’t even say the same thing about aspirin, c’mon! Is it because it “alters moods?” Well, I’ll give you that one! It’s taken millions from frazzled to free-and-easy in seconds flat. And as a bonus, it’s done so without the commonly prescribed (mood-altering, painkilling) meds that are (somehow) perfectly legal with a doctor’s note in spite of being exponentially stronger, irrefutably addictive, and commonly fatal. What’s more, marijuana’s been proven to relieve

the symptoms of a ton of illnesses, such as cancer, glaucoma, anxiety, depression, and HIV/AIDS. The only argument anti-pot blowhards have against the stuff is some anti-science mumbo-jumbo about herb being a “gateway drug.” Well, guess what, pal: Life is a gateway drug. Humankind always has — and always will — figured out a way to get messed up. And that’s OK. Just as the LGBT community was painted as a bunch of perverts by religious and political jackals who were encouraged by the fact that we were too scared to come out and fight back, those of us who enjoy Lady Ganja are painted as losers, addicts, and slackers who don’t contribute to society. Screw that! I contend that we just do it – just come out of the cannabis closet! Speak up! Make some offhand comment or joke about the stuff: “This $12 movie would only take about $5 of pot to fix.” You’d

be surprised at how many ‘amens!’ you’ll get from people who are, like most smokers, zip-lipped on the subject. Drop hints, wink and nudge, and stop caring about the judgments of haters. For years I’ve posted about being stoned on Facebook and have yet to have my doors kicked in by the DEA. It’s just not really that big a deal. Those of us who are responsible (and those who are sick and dependant) should come out proudly and say, “Hey! We’re the bank tellers, the engineers, the heads of PTA, the real estate agents, the stock brokers, the financial advisers, the restaurant managers, and the rest of the wily gang of hard workers you’ve trusted for years.” Coming out will normalize us. As with gay marriage, the polls are showing that public opinion is on our side. Anyway, give it some thought. In the meantime ... *passes you a bowl*

TREVOR’S Package: An Intimate Interview with Playgirl’s Man of the Month Dino Thompson-Sarmiento


Christmas came early for me this year as I spent time interviewing spectacular fitness model, trainer, and December’s Playgirl Man of the Month Trevor Adams. He is captivating in every way; his physique would make Michelangelo forget David, yet his kindness would please Mother Teresa. The 31-year-old is from Texas where everything is bigger and better … and Adams doesn’t disappoint. His beginnings were modest and troubled by family financial challenges. Growing up, he attended 13 schools in all, which severed his ability to connect with folks and put a wrench in achieving scholastic success. His father battled alcoholism and his only sibling is mentally challenged. However, Adams managed to carve a career using his brawn and charming demeanor. He has graced countless magazine covers and is a prized trainer for many in Texas. I can only imagine how long the waiting list is. So now, I pass along my holiday treat to you in this candid interview. TREVOR, WHEN DID YOU COME OUT AS GAY AND WHAT CHALLENGES DID YOU CONFRONT? I knew I was gay while growing up. My family was conservative, but not from a religious standpoint — more of a “what would people say” type of thing. It was best for me it to keep to myself. Once I moved out, I met folks that were more liberal and I felt comfortable being me. However, I don’t like labels. I think the word ‘gay’ has been punished. Many men

have had same-sex experiences and it doesn’t mean you are gay as it is defined in our society. WHAT DO YOU SAY TO YOUNG MEN OUT THERE WHO ARE QUESTIONING THEIR SEXUALITY? Be yourself, eventually the world will evolve. Yet, I caution teens from coming out. I don’t think it is safe for them. I would suggest taking a “don’t ask, don’t tell” type of attitude.


THAT’S A BOLD STATEMENT. MANY FOLKS WOULD DISAGREE. ISN’T IT BEST TO BE WHO YOU ARE AND LET PEOPLE MEET THE REAL YOU, AND PERHAPS BREAK THE CHAIN OF IGNORANCE AND DISCRIMINATION? I think they need to come out when they feel it is safe. Some kids are lucky and attend progressive/liberal schools with a good environment. Rejection is tough and bullying even worse. I say be discreet; you have your entire adult life to be who you are. My concerns are with the kids. LET’S SWITCH GEARS AND TALK ABOUT FITNESS. WHAT ADVICE CAN YOU GIVE MEN IN THEIR 30s AND 40s WHO MAY HAVE A LITTLE POOCH THAT THEY CAN’T GET RID OF? If you are carrying excess baggage it’s really simple. You are eating too much and not exercising enough. You need to become familiar with calorie counting.

Be yourself, eventually the world will evolve. Yet, I caution teens from coming out. I don’t think it is safe for them.


Try to eat at home or get an app on your smart phone that counts for you. Be aware of what is going in to your body. Reduce bread, pastas, and ice cream consumption. One of the biggest mistakes is making dinner your heaviest meal. Eat carbs early in the day. Also staying active is important to keep your metabolism going. It naturally begins to slow as you age. Some caffeine is good as it keeps your metabolic rate high. I suggest sports drinks and coffee. WHERE SHOULD A PERSON START? It is important that you realize that it is a process. You should never just go from 4,000 calories and switch to celery sticks. If you were consuming 4,000 calories make your goal 3,600 for the next couple of weeks until you eventually meet your desired calorie intake. Remember, exercising will allow you to have the little cheat meal without guilt. Something else to keep in mind is that the bigger the muscle, the more calories you burn. WHAT ABOUT LOSING WEIGHT IN TARGET AREAS? That is a myth. People think because they are exercising one specific area they will lose fat in that area. Well, that is not the way it works. That fat will start to burn first in the area where you store the most fat. Something else to keep in mind is that genetics play a big part in the way you look and the way your muscles build. WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON CARDIO? I am not a fan of cardio. I think you should do five minutes to warm up and spend the rest of the time in strength training. For those who say you aren’t

working your heart, I say then you aren’t strength training properly. YAY! (WHO WANTS TO BUY MY ELLIPTICAL MACHINE?) BUT LOOKING AT YOUR BODY, I WON’T ARGUE. I feel that running, particularly, is counterproductive and dangerous. The older you get, the less strain you want to put on your joints. I often watch folks doing excessive heavy lifting and they are doing so much damage to their bodies just to keep up with the guy next to them. There is no need to do that. WHAT ABOUT ALCOHOL? WHAT DRINK WOULD KEEP THE FAT AWAY? None is the best policy, but red wine has benefits if consumed in moderation. You should not drink when eating your meals, as the alcohol blocks proper nutrition absorption, plus your inhibitions go down and then you’ll be eating dessert too.


TREVOR, TELL ME A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT FEEDS YOUR SOUL. FOR EXAMPLE, WHAT CHARITIES TUG AT YOUR HEART? The Trevor Project is close to my heart. I want everyone to know that there is help just a phone call away at the Trevor lifeline at 1-866-488-7386. I am also passionate about animals and encourage folks to donate to The Humane Society and the ASPCA. ONE LAST QUESTION. I HEARD ABOUT YOUR ENCOUNTER WITH A BOTTLE OF HAIR COLORING. CAN YOU ELABORATE? (Laughter) Yes, I can. It was back during Hurricane Katrina. I happened to be near the Gulf Coast and I was bored because the city was shut down. I decided it would be a great idea to dye my pubic area. Apparently I left the dye on too long and I ended up with second degree burns. I was bedridden for three weeks and even got bed sores on my back because I was literally unable to move. It was definitely my worst injury ever and I warn folks not to do it. TREVOR, THANK YOU SO MUCH AND CONGRATULATIONS ON BEING NAMED PLAYGIRL MAN OF THE MONTH, AND GOOD LUCK ON THE MAN OF THE YEAR SELECTION. Thank you, Dino and Fenuxe readers!

Holler Poodles! Can you believe how fast this year has gone by? It’s been a year of momentous events that really affected our nation from the presidential election to the olympics and the destruction of hurricane Sandy. However, the biggest news was right here at home in our own backyard. Who knew the masses would elect its very own princess. Thats right folks, I’m talking Honey Boo Boo y’all. You better Redneckognize!! Now I for one tried to avoid this show at all costs. It really offended my feminine, dainty, sensibilities. But one afternoon while napping (sleeping off a hangover), I awoke to a marathon of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”. Admittedly, I was intrigued at the show opener when the mother crops dusts (airline industry term for farting on the public) her brood of children and then laughs about it. Now that’s takes real class! Imagine my surprise when I got a call from producers asking if I was related to the South Georgia Pitts bloodline. As it turns out, my uncle’s cousin’s nephew’s niece on my father’s side once removed by force actually slept with a pig named Glitzy! Allegedly, I may have also been intimate with uncle Poodle. I can’t believe it, we’re related. It brings a tear to my eye and fart to my butt! Check me out next season--I’ll be a pig wearing lipstick. Redundant, I know. The movies were pretty amazing this year but I was extremely disappointed in Magic Mike. I feel like in this day and age we should be able to see some appendages swinging around. If half of America has been reading 50 Shades of Grey, I think they’re more than ready to see some dick. Can I get an amen? Channing and the cast were all hot but damn,

72 : No vember 15, 2012

they led us to believe we were gonna see it all. Hell, I still want my money back. The Avengers was probably the biggest surprise to me this year. I really had no interest in seeing it but after some coaxing, I watched it and was thoroughly entertained (pleasuring myself) looking at that handsome Chris Evans. Mark Ruffalo was also a real cutie as the Hulk. I wonder what happens to his penis when he gets mad? Hmmmmmmm. I’d have to piss him off a lot, just saying! Of course, the saddest celebrity death of the year for me was the passing of Whitney Houston. Say what you will but she sang the soundtrack of my life. She also paid my bills. Many of you have told me time and time again how you can’t listen certain songs of hers without thinking of how I ‘messed’ them up for you. RIP my dear Whitney! But now the past is the past and I’m really looking forward to the new year. I hope you are too! Love and lashes,
