Love Your Condom's Sexy "Gear Up" Campaign Uses Hunky Athletes To Promote Safe Sex

New Zealand non-profit Love Your Condom has created a pretty hot video campaign using hunky athletes to help promote self sex. But, they don't stop there. They also give away free condoms and lube, have many instructional videos on how to enjoy anal sex utilizing condoms for both beginners and those a bit more advanced, and they have funny videos where cute guys try to make balloon animals out of condoms or have shirtless condom water balloon fights. It's all really well made and tackles the subject matter with a sense of whimsy often missing in their non-profit counterparts here in the US.

Here's their mission:
Love Your Condom is a community-focused programme designed to create a condom culture across Aotearoa New Zealand. LYC encourages all gay and bi guys to use condoms and lube every time they have sex. Love Your Condom is about moving us past all those lame excuses not to be safe, and inspires us to not just tolerate, but love the sexy confidence that comes with condom covered cocks.

LYC recognises that gay and bisexual men, the people most at risk of HIV, are influenced by their partners, whānau, friends, colleagues, employers and the environment in which they live. While it is essential that LYC reaches and affects all gay and bi guys living in New Zealand, it is also necessary to reach the people who can support, influence and enable gay and bisexual men to use condoms and lube every time they have anal sex.

“We aim to develop a society where it’s socially acceptable to talk to any other New Zealander, but especially those who are most at risk of HIV, about using condoms. Inherent in a condom culture is the attitude that it’s socially unacceptable to ask someone for unsafe sex and anyone who’s asked will have the knowledge and confidence they need to say no” (Nick Laing, General Manager, New Zealand AIDS Foundation).

Gay Themed Animated Short Film "Cruise Patrol" Finally Available Online!

Dutch animator Bobby de Groot and the team at House of Secrets finally made their 2013 gay themed, sci-fi animated short Cruise Patrol available to view online for free! I guess they needed to finish up their 2014 Festival circuit that included more than fifty film fests in twenty two countries.

Cruise Patrol was also nominated for some pretty prestigious awards including Grand Prix of Dutch Animation at the Holland Animation Film Festival, Best International Short at Suspiria Fest, Best Short Animated Film at the Shortcutz Film Festival, and more!

Anyway, since the movie is only seven minutes long, I am not going to give away too much of the plot. The only thing I will say is the first couple of minutes you will wonder where this is going. Stick with it. It takes an unexpected turn into craziness!

World's Grossest Gay Dating App Come-Ons (As Illustrated by Vintage 70's Figurines!)

Everyone who has ever spent more than five minutes on Grindr, Growlr, Scruff, or any other dating app has certainly gotten their fair share of revolting, absurd, and just downright nasty come-ons from potential suitors. We had fun scouring the internet for some of the icky-est. But to help mitigate the disgust, we decided to present them to you a la vintage figurines from the 70s! No more do they say "World's Greatest Dad" or "I Love You This Much." Instead they get right to the point, just like our fine, but inappropriate, online friends looking for a quick hook-up.

50 Bands & A Cat For Indiana Equality

Wonderful indie record label Joyful Noise, which just happens to be headquartered in Indiana, has put together this exceptionally impressive collection of 51 songs, mostly previously unreleased, by some of the biggest indie rock bands in the business. The list includes Thurston Moore, Lou Barlow of Sebadoh and Dinosaur Jr, Sonny and the Sunsets, WHY?,  Of Montreal, Thee Oh Sees, and so many more. You can see the complete line up below. And yes, that is L'il Bub! He has a track on the compilation, too!

For a donation of $25, you get all 51 tracks digitally PLUS a lathe cut, hand numbered, limited edition 7" featuring any song of your choice! The vinyl is limited to exactly the number requested, so you may be one of only 30 people in the world with that exact record!

100% of net profits will be donated to Freedom Indiana, the ACLU of Indiana, and Indy Pride. These organizations are actively fighting for LGBT rights and culture throughout Indiana.

Joyful Noise released the following statement regarding their desire for launching this project:
Lately all eyes have been on our home state of Indiana, and for all the wrong reasons. Our state legislature passed a bill known as Religious Freedom Restoration Act which was then signed into law by Governor Mike Pence. We believe this bill did not reflect the feelings of a vast majority of Hoosiers and we quickly rose up, demanding that the Governor and Legislature repeal the law. While an amended bill has subsequently lessened the harm, the fact remains that our LGBT family still do not have full protection under Indiana law. To keep the drumbeat going, we have put together this compilation to support LGBT groups in Indiana actively continuing the fight to establish protections for all people.
Anyway, go to their order page for more info! They will explain it all in further detail there. The digital release starts getting delivered April 21st. So, be sure to be one of the first to have these exclusive and rare tracks!

Stripling Warrior: The World's First Gay Mormon Superhero Kickstarter

Illustrator Brian Andersen is a life-long geek who's created comics ever since he was a young, skinny, four-eyed goober in middle school. He's also an out, gay Mormon. He joined the Mormon Church at 18, went on a mission at 19, attended Brigham Young University at 26 and came out and accepted his gayness at 27. He's married, to a fellow Mormon, and they have a lovely one-year-old daughter.

Brian's created and written a popular line of queer indie comics since 2007, with over six titles and counting under his So Super Duper Comics banner. He's been on numerous LGBT panels at Comic Con and delights that he is a part of the queer, underground comics world.

He has put up an already successful Kickstarter campaign for his latest title Stripling Warrior. Here's the official synopsis:

Stripling Warrior stars Sam Shepard, a happily out and newly married gay man who is visited by an Angel from Heaven on his wedding night. The Angel Abish - a rare female named character from the Book of Mormon - calls Sam to become the Hand of God on Earth, tasked with smiting those in need of smiting.
Why was he chosen? How does his homosexuality impact his role as a servant of the divine? And how does the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints react when they hear of a homosexual man on a mission from the heavens? (*hint* Not great.)

Stripling Warrior will explore all of this. The comic is a sexy story without being XXX-Sexy (not that there is anything wrong with XXX Gay Comics). This book isn't just about a gay superhero who's gay in name only. Sam’s romantic life will be prominently featured along with plenty of fisticuffs, humor, an exploration into the mythology of the LDS Church, and of course, heroic banter and super villains.
Sounds good to me! Watch the Kickstarter video below! And be sure to check out all the awesome preview art! And, if you have a few extra dollars, consider donating. Anderson is offering some great perks!
