As a tribute to the “modern day princess” – I bring you the real life Disney Princess edition of Monday Funday! So sit back, relax your mind and enjoy some really awesome pictures to get you through the rest of your Monday!

 

After the butt kicking Disney Princesses of Street Fighter, you can then sit back and enjoy Disney Princess Pinup Version 1:

Ooh la la! I think my favorite is Jasmine! (Curves ahead!)

 

If that’s a little too tame for you, you can always get protection from The Disney Princess Sailor Moon Crew!

As an anime nerd, I LOVE this one! They all look super cool! Check out Sleeping Beauty and Pocahontas! Bad ass!

 

Here’s another awesome Disney Pin-up picture, its especially cool because it contains many of the female Disney characters, and not just the princesses. (Prior to what many may think – not all little girls want to grow up to be princesses – myself included! So i’m glad the other women get a shout out here too!

I honestly cannot chose my favorite here!

 

Ok – so this next one is for all you zombie-loving-walking-dead-thriller lovers…

This picture is SICK! I have a feeling that the blogger over at our awesome sister site www.weSTYLEny.com would love this one! She is a sick makeup artist and i’ve seen her pictures  of the amazing zombie-esque work she does! This one’s for you Jill!

 

If the zombie princess look isnt exactly for you, then you might really dig this next one – it’s all the Disney Princesses dressed up as modern pop-stars!

Can you spot who is Brittney, Katy, Gaga, Beyonce and more? I think Jasmine is Nicole Scherzinger from The Pussy Cat Dolls. (Damn I love her.)

 

But wait – there’s more! Not only can the Disney ladies kick butt as Anime and Street Fighter characters, they are all also undercover superheros!

 

Pow! Wham! Zap!

 

And last but not least, I leave you with this amazing picture of how the Princesses would look with the ultimate makeover – Villain’ed out as the same villain from their movie!

 

I hope you enjoy these pics and scroll over their awesomeness several times! This is definitely one you should share with your friends! Happy Monday, love wePRIDEny!

Coffee Giant to promote U.S. jobs with coffee, cups and more stores!

Keywords: starbucks, indivisible blend coffee, american jobs

 

Great news for gays, coffee fanatics and Americans! Starbucks, the nation’s leading coffee-cafe giant is planning to create tons of new jobs in the U.S. and donate money to fund employment opportunities in the United States! Starbucks is already known for being a place where gay people can work and receive benefits with support and love. (Plus, when you work there you usually get some of the days leftovers from the cafe case!)

 

The coffee giant will sell a limited-edition mug, tumbler and bag of coffee – all made domestically – to raise money for its Create Jobs for USA fund. Starbucks has raised more than $11.5 million for the jobs fund so far, it said, an amount that can be leveraged to create up to $80 million in loans to community businesses and organizations. Citi, one of the country’s largest banks, pitched in with a $1 million donation! The loan recipients will create nearly 4,000 jobs while money from the coffee, mug and tumbler will benefit the fund. In addition to this – get your gay resumes ready because Starbucks itself will be opening 200 new stores in the U.S. in the next year and redesign 1,7000 other stores!

 

 

The ‘Indivisible’ coffee, tumbler and mug will be available beginning July 9th! Grab yours and support the economy today!

 




Chick-Fil-A wants to set up roost on Long Island!

Keywords: chick-fil-a, chicken, winshape, nyu, northeastern, la, focus on the family

 

If you have traveled down South, then chances are you have seen or eaten at a Chick-Fil-A fast food resturant. The chain resturant has been under much fire this year as informaiton regarding their anti-equality practices and hateful ideology has come out faster than contestants on The Voice. Now, the resturant chain that has publicly acknowelged that God doenst like the gays is trying to set up shop right here on Long Island.

 

Let’s start with the facts . First, down South, most Chick-Fil-A’s are closed on Sundays, due to their founders strong religious beliefs and the company’s statement of corporate purpose starting that the business exists to “glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us.” Ok…so being a faitful servant to God means serving up chicken?? I mean, believe in God, but I’m not about to go and buy a hot-dog truck to spread his word.

 

Second – Chick-Fil-A runs “Winshape” – a fundraising arm of their chain that has hosted conferences with some of the leading opponents of gay marriage. A higher up at WinShape has even praised the efforts of anti-gay activist David Blankenhorn for working against marriage equality, and for articulating a solid reason why American culture should reject same-sex couples. When Winshape has retreats for couples who are employees, same-sex copuples are not allowed.

 

Third – Chick-Fil-A has been exposed for asking about employees marital status, religion and sexuality. Tsk, tsk, tsk!

 

Fourth- Chick-Fil-A are some of the biggest funders of Focus on the Family, the National Organization for Marriage, the Pennsylvania Family Institute and Exodus International – all groups that LEAD the fight against gay rights in this country. (HINT: election coming!!)

 

Fifth – Other communities have wised up to Chick-Fil-A. On THIS THURSDAY – a group of people will be organizing at NYU to protest the Chick-Fil-A on campus.  11,000 people have signed the change.org petition to tell NYU that their money making food joint doesn’t jive with their school’s mission and philosophy!  In September, a group of protesters did the same thing in L.A. And at Northeastern University, TODAY the student government voted to block Chick-Fil-A from campus after much noise was made. And, Modern Family star Sarah Hyland caused a whole lot of hypocritical ruckus when she was spotted at the grand opening of a California Chick-Fil-A!

 

Hayley, don’t eat that! Dylan works for Wendy’s now!

 

 

Now you may be wondering why this is importnat, or who cares? But this is very important! We here on Long Island need to ban together and take a stand against inequality everywhere. Chick-Fil-A’s practices arent right, and we shouldtn support that. Additionally, by buying their fries and sandwhiches, we are funding hate organizations. If we fund hate orgainzations, then people who hate us get the funding and opportunity to be in positions of power. Then, those people will enact laws taking our rights away and denying even more. This is very important in an election year!

 

So as you can see class,

 

Hateful Chicken + Long Island / church and state - homophobia + election year = NO CHICK-FIL-A on Long Island!

 

 

Stay tuned for more information on activism regarding this. The Long Island GLBT Service Network agrees. Says CEO David Kilmnick, “I think on Long Island we have a separation of religion and taste.” And call/email/facebook John J. Culmone, executive director of the brokerage Commercial Retail Associates, who is working with people at Chick-fil-A to procure a space and tell him that we don’t want hateful chicken on Long Island!

 




“White Collar” actor, Matt Bomber comes out!

Keywords: matt bomber, glaad, out

 

Grab Zack Quinto and close that closet door! In the ever increasingly interesting world of “closeted-but-not-so-closeted” celebrities to come out, Matt Bomber has publicly acknowledged his partner, children and sexuality this weekend while accepting a humanitarian award. Bomber has done a lot of work for HIV/AIDS causes worldwide, but in 2010 when interviewd by Details Magazine, he escaped any detailed answer about his current relaitonship status/sexuality by cryptically stating  ”I don’t care about [rumors] at all. I’m completely happy and fulfilled in my personal life. Hmmm…

 

With 3 children, a big deal publicist as a husband and a career on television, it is so sad that actors feel such pressure to stay in the closet for the sake of their career and sex appeal. All I have to say is “Anderson….were waiting…!”

 

 




Kinda…eh, not really.

Keywords: new jersey, chris christie, marriage 

 

Well boys, the big deal is that your Governor, Chris Christie wants to run for president.

 

So while Twitter-heads are all flutter with news of same-sex marriage passing in New Jersey, we cant get our “Vogue on” just yet. Yes, it is true that same-sex marriage passed in both houses – but only by a small margin. According to USA Today ”the vote passed 42-33…a dozen less than the number needed to override the veto vowed by Christie, a Republican.”

 

Le sigh.

 

In real talk, this means that although we would like to celebrate this small victory, the Governor is going to veto the bill (i.e. NOT sign it).  Gay rights in New Jersey will soon be told to “Sashay away”. 

 




…so I really hope all those LGBTQ haters & ‘christians’ get off line!

Keywords: google gay, google supports lgbtq rights, google targets anti-gay countries

Go Google! Just yesterday, July 9th, Google announced its campaign to rally for world-wide support of same-sex marriage and rights. The campaign, called ‘Legalise Love’ was kicked off in London at an LGBTQ conference. (PS – did you know that there is a WORLD PRIDE celebration and it’s in London?! So cool!)

 

 

Google’s website states that ‘Legalise Love is our call to decriminalise homosexuality and eliminate homophobia around the world.’ They say some other great stuff too, like…

 

“at Google, we encourage people to bring their whole selves to work. In all of our 60 offices around the world, we are committed to cultivating a work environment where Googlers can be themselves and thrive. We also want our employees to have the same inclusive experience outside of the office, as they do at work, and for LGBT communities to be safe and to be accepted wherever they are.”

 

 

Great! Google is first targeting countries like Singapore and Poland are first, because they criminalize gay people and punish them for simply being. Gays are thrown in jail, punished, tortured and even killed.

 

“Singapore wants to be a global financial centre and world leader, and we can push them on the fact that being a global centre and a world leader means you have to treat all people the same, irrespective of their sexual orientation,” Google’s head of diversity Mark Palmer-Edgecumbe is reported to have said.

 

Josh Taylor, from Gen Why? puts it wonderfully by saying that “as a tech giant, Google has the ability to be much more influential in pushing for decriminalisation than foreign governments. Its influence is enormous through its search engine, Gmail, Android and countless other Google services. Countries that would boycott Google for advocating the decriminalisation of homosexuality would face cutting their citizens off from a lot of services that they use each and every day.”

 

Here’s to hoping this forces global players into rethinking their stance. Or, in the very least, hopefully nutso-conservative Christians will boycott Google like they do Oreo’s and JC Penney. (Why dont they boycott Facebook too? I’m going to have to blog about that!) Way to go Google! We heart you!
