Now this is a Better Business Bureau complaint in the making…

Tow company owner arrested, allegedly targeted Gay Days visitors’ cars

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. —

The owner of an Orange Countytowing company has been arrested and is accused of targeting drivers who were parked near Gay Days events in June.

Jason Combs, the owner of ASAP Towing, didn’t say anything as he was escorted to a deputy’s patrol car.

“Jason, were you targeting people at gay days?” Channel 9 reporter Jeff Deal asked.

The Sheriff’s Office said Combs illegally towed cars from a lot on International Drive across from the DoubleTree hotel. It was the site of the annual Gay Days celebration that took place between June 5 and June 9.

Now this is how to get ready for a street fair..

Just because we’re not in town for Dore Alley fair this year, doesn’t mean our friends aren’t getting ready. Gacked this from a pal’s FB post. 20140726-083733-31053572.jpg

Now thats how to sell beer…

This was just too precious not to cross-post.. I don’t know which is worse the mention or the fact they thought it would give them 10 min of fame..

Judge Judith Sheindlin on her worst day is smarter than you on your best, but even so she apparently had never heard of Grindr before a Judge Judy case involving two men who had met on the app that aired yesterday. And even though Sheindlin wears her luddite status as proudlyas that doily around her neck, she cut right through the bullshit and sussed out what menactually use it for.

That said, awareness of HCV is relatively low, and there can be lots of confusion about it. This program will feature an overview of HCV prevention and treatment;
an open question and answer period from the audience;
a facilitated discussion on safer sex and HCV; where to go for HCV testing; and, a call for greater advocacy and resources to improve access to prevention and treatment.

Leathersex and Spirituality: A Panel Discussion [SF]

Leathersex and Spirituality: A Panel Discussion
Leathersexandspirituality 5Join our diverse and distinguished panelists as we investigate the intersection of leathersex and spirituality.

What is a spiritual experience, anyway? How do we differentiate it from intense pleasure, intense sensation, an endorphin high, even love?

Does neuropsychology have anything to tell us about it “threshold” states of consciousness? Does spiritual experience presuppose a belief in God, or in an eternal soul? How does spiritual experience shape your conscience and values and behavior, or does it? Do specific practices foster spiritual discovery? What about specific faith traditions and how they view sexuality?
