Apparently, a gay pop singer from German jumped to his death from a cruise ship over the weekend.
Küblböck was a gay German pop singer and reality star. He appeared on Pop Idol (coming in third), and competed on Big Brother and Let’s Dance.
The 33-year old was cruising on an Aida cruise ship from Hamburg to New York when a witness says he saw Küblböck jump from a fifth-floor balcony while off the coast of Newfoundland on Sunday.
A spokesman for Aida Cruises confirmed the incident happened and the ship returned to land afterward:
“The cruise ship AIDAuna was on the sea route to Newfoundland when a person jumped overboard in the early hours of September 9, 2018. The captain and crew of AIDAluna have immediately taken all necessary reuse measures, in close coordination with local competent authorities. A cabin check was performed, which confirmed that a male guest was missing. The mission person is Daniel Küblböck. The ship was stopped as a precautionary measure and returned to the spot where the incident was accepted. The search continues. AIDA Cruises fully cooperates with the authorities and works hard to find the mission person. As soon as further information is available, we will make it available.”
The Canadian coast guard conducted an intensive search for Küblböck but was unable to locate him. It was just last month that Küblböck posted a message to fans on Facebook talking about his struggles with mental illness.
“Dear fans, unfortunately, I am still mentally and physically not getting better,” the letter, which has since been deleted read. “I have yet to cope with this pain of the last few months.”
The post has since been taken down.
It’s really simple, if you’re black then, in my opinion, you should never use or say the n-word.
However gay porn star Bruno Bernal has “doubled down” after using the n-word. Even after widespread criticisms, he has suggested that those offended by his language should just “grow a thicker skin and be less sensitive.” Bernal used the n-word on Instagram to denigrate his African American barber.
Fans didn’t waste time calling out his blatant racism, therefore, he goes defensive and posted screenshots of negative comments that he received then suggested that he couldn’t possibly be racist because he dates black men.
So instead of letting the entire matter go, he’s now back posting about the topic. Sharing a message he received in support from a black fan (via NSFW blog Str8UpGayPorn);
Then he posted this reply:
Bernal would like to remind us of the “context of how [he] used it”: simply racially talk down to someone because of the way they speak. Whatever that’s supposed to mean.
The could be a lesson for Bernal to grow as a person, but then again that might just be wishful thinking. Men.com which planned to release a scene with Bernal this week has instead released a statement: “Due to recent events, the [Bruno Bernal] Men.com scene will not be promoted by us. We prefer that it also not be promoted by our affiliates. Moving forward, we will no longer be working with the actor involved in the recent events.”
Maybe Bernal should instead be more careful and sensitive of the works he chooses to use!
Well, it appears that gay-for-pay solo performer Michael Hoffman has made a return. The 25-year-old hot, tatted-up hunk who made a series of videos for a number of pay-for-view sites and in the process made tens of thousands of dollars.
Hoffman who last summer and identifies as straight posted a video on his Twitter page announcing he was done selling his body on social media and has regrets in the first place doing it. “My decision four years ago to start making videos has really f*cked me up,” he said. “I lose girl after girl. I can’t land a relationship. Can’t get a job. Can’t go anywhere. Can’t do anything.” He further stated: “Every single person I meet finds out or knows about it, gets creeped out, doesn’t want to be f*cking friends with me.”
It now appears that Mr. Hoffman has either found his enter peace or doesn’t minding selling his body and goods online, or he’s making the same mistake twice. A new video featuring Hoffman and another man is now circulating online.
In the video, Hoffman is getting a very NFSW Massage from another man and with a happy ending. The video has been making the rounds on Tumblr, where it has been shared over 70,000 times and was uploaded to PornHub.
Hoffman posted another video on Twitter last month saying he was mounting a comeback after an extended hiatus from social media. “I know it’s been a good couple months,” he said. “I’ve been going through a lot. I was working. I thought I was gonna move on. But, honestly, I was just kinda missing this. And I was kinda missing all of you guys.”
Honestly, in my opinion, the whole gay-for-pay is utter bullshit. Maybe he ran out of money and now needs a source of income. Either way, he’s really easy on the eyes and the video isn’t bad either.
Well, it appears that more “leaked” pictures of a local celebrity has surfaced. Jordan Nuttell a striker/half center for Boston United in Lincolnshire, UK is dealing with images that will show more than just his smile.
He’s tall, has a great smile, tanned, muscular, and apparently, he has a nice package.
Just looking at Nuttell’s Instagram you can see plenty of shirtless pictures and he doesn’t appear to be shy about showing his body.
So, the question once again we ask is why? Why would you send nude pictures of yourself knowing there’s a chance they will be “leaked”. We live in a culture that privacy doesn’t mean much these days. You have to ask yourself is it worth it? For some, it just might be worth it.
You form your own opinion.

Karl Schmid an entertainment reporter for ABC's affiliate station in Los Angeles over the weekend came out as HIV-positive in a Facebook post that has gone viral.
Hi. I’m a 37 year old HIV+ man who has been poz for almost ten years. I work in television. And on the side of the camera where, for better or worse it’s considered “taboo” for people ‘like me’ to be ‘like me’. For 10 years I’ve struggled with ‘do I or don’t I’? For ten years the stigma and industry professionals have said, ‘don’t! It’ll ruin you’.
Schmid decided to ignore the advice and is proud of who he is and doesn't see a reason to feel ashamed or to even hide his status. “I’m me. I’m just like you. I have a big heart and I want to be loved and accepted,” he writes. “So here’s what I say, stand tall, and stand proud. You can’t make everybody happy but you can make you happy.”
He concludes the heartfelt post with a few words of encouragement for other HIV-positive people:
Love me or hate me, that’s up to you. But, for anyone who has ever doubted themselves because of those scary three letters and one symbol, let me tell you this, you are somebody who matters. Your feelings, your thoughts, your emotions count. And don’t let anybody tell you otherwise. I’m Karl Schmid, and I’m an HIV-positive man!
The support has been overwhelming and he appears to be humbled. He wrote on Twitter: “Today has been insanely overwhelming. I had NO idea that me sharing something would have such an impact. For those of you who dm’d with your stories THANK YOU.”
Well, it appears that another math teacher has a gay adult film past, and trust me he should be celebrated. It appears that students at Peacehaven Community School (located in East Sussex) discovered that their math teacher has a past that they were not prepared for. They made the discovery after a Google search using his name, Scott Sherwood.
The 50-years old teacher performed under the name Aaron Cage and his videos can be found on a number of online platforms. The title of one video says it all "Aaron is a Hot British Bear". Who can argue with that?
Also discovered is a YouTude video in which Sherwood openly talked about his time as an adult film star - He stated: “for me, becoming a [Colt Studio] model, it was just a dream come true.”
A student wrote in the comment section: “That guy is my maths teacher his real name is Scott Sherwood. I’m scared”. While a former student wrote: My old maths teacher”. It's understandable that they would be shocked, I mean your math teacher was once a porn star!
Sherwood talked candidly in an interview with Gay Community (using 'Aaron Cage'), he spoke about problems he witnessed in the adult porn industry. He stated “It’s sad to see, some are turning to drugs, some [attempting] suicide. Porn shouldn’t be seen as work. It’s a second job at best. Everyone has a shelf-life. Even me. Trends in porn change." Furthermore, “I would have been big in the ’70s and finished by the ’80s when everyone was waxed within an inch of their life. It happens. I know that one day, they won’t call.”
Sherwood added: I see all these 22-year-olds with stars in their eyes – thinking this is going to be their career, then finding it’s all over and having their next career options curtailed. I was already settled, established. These guys well… well, see the previous question about work drying up.”
The sad truth is that not everyone is accepting of individuals who have worked in the adult industry. The Mirror has
reported that since this has all come to light, Sherwood hasn't returned to the classroom.
Another teacher in Rome was outed to have been an adult film star in October 2017.
Rickey Martin wants to have an open conversation about open relationships, especially with gay men. He is currently playing Antonio D'Amico the longtime lover of Gianni Versace on he Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story. The two were in a 15 year committed relationship, however, they were open and did sleep with other people. Martin wants the series to dispel the stereotypes about non-monogamous relationships.
Martin told Vulture “I want to normalize relationships like this,” and “It’s good for the world; it’s good for me as a gay man with kids. It’s important that we shed some light on power couples like this.”
What he found most challenging as an actor was in the first episode, when the FBI began it's interrogating D'Amico about his relationship with Varsace. “It was a very excruciating scene for me. I mean, this guy was opening every door that was a secret from Gianni’s and Antonio’s relationship. I’m talking about bringing men into our lives. I’m talking about bringing escorts. That exposure is very heavy,” Martin said. “[But] the story, once again, needs to be told, for people to see the level of unity between these two. The level of commitment after 15 years. The level of security… and trust between them is so solid.”
Halloween is considered one of the best holidays in New Orleans. For the LGBT Community, it’s about sharing its love of showmanship, and culture.
Halloween New Orleans for 35 years has been one of the most successful events in New Orleans. The sole mission of HNO is to raise money for Project Lazarus an organization that provides health care, support services, and housing for those living with HIV/AIDS (both men and women). HNO has raised approximately $4.5 million for Project Lazarus, 100% of all donations go directly to Project Lazarus, and is one of the few donation/volunteer events left in the United States.
HNO weekend is something to experience, after attending last year’s event at the House of Blues I was amazed at the transition. There are few events that impress me, however, I can’t stress how this one truly did. You come to realize that behind the scenes there is a lot of work put into this event. Each year they select a different theme, and according to Dustin Woehrmann, President of the HNO Board “the planning and execution of the Halloween event is planned right down to the smallest detail.” Furthermore “It’s about having fun, but also raising money for Project Lazarus, which is getting harder to do each year. We must reach a younger crowd and that can be difficult.”
But make no mistake HNO works hard to raise what money they can, last year they raised approximately $30,000 for Project Lazarus. For the board, it’s not just about raising money, but a desire to foster a supportive community here in New Orleans. HNO will also host mini-events during the year to keep the group engaged.
Most people know that I’m not a fan of large LGBT parties. It’s been my experience that most turn into another boring circuit party, with stuck up half-dressed men, loud music, overpriced drinks and me wondering what the hell I'm doing here. However, for some reason, the HNO Halloween Party was different for me, maybe because I was there to take pictures, but I was impressed with the creative costumes and the effects were impressive (did I say that already?) either way I look forward to next year’s events.

Lost home videos were discovered by Geoff Story, a filmmaker from St. Louis. Telling Nancy Fowler from St. Louis Public Radio he explained that he stumbled upon them 20 years ago at an estate sale of the Buddy Walton.
Walton often referred to as St. Louis' "hairdresser to the stars", including Eleanor Roosevelt and Ethel Merman if they happened to pass through St. Louis, but was also known for having lavish pool parities at his home.
“These men are still in their 20s in the sun, swimming, like they always will,” Story says. “There’s a real sweet pain, and when you watch it, there’s a happiness but you can’t believe it’s so long ago and you can’t touch it–it’s gone.”
Finding the footage inspired the idea for a documentary, which lead Story to set out and find gay men who were alive in the 1940's and talking to them about their experiences and lives. Story's new film Gay Home Movie, which he is currently working on, give us a rare look into an invisible world when LGBT individuals were forced to love and live in the dark. His documentary has already sparked the interest of gay Hollywood exec Brain Graden. “It speaks to a wide array of people on a very deep level,” Graden tells Fowler. “What are the chances someone would go to an estate sale and pick up these canisters of old footage? It’s almost like these men are trying to talk to us from beyond the grave.”
