History was just made with the crowning of a trans woman as Miss Spain. She was not crowned because of or despite of her being transshe was crowned because she was the best/most attractive contestant. Angela Ponce will now go on to compete in the Miss Universe Pageant, making her the first trans contestant in that pageant's history. ( Trans people were banned from the contest until 2012. ) Felicitaciones, Angela!
An Irish priest has been placed on "personal leave" after a gay-sex video surfaced showing a man in vestments performing sexual acts on another man. A local paper described it thusly: "Priest desecrates altar with gay-sex acts!" It was filmed at St. Bartholomew's Church in Kildorrery, North Cork and, according to the subheading, "State Police in Ireland investigating the sacrilege." Words like "desecrates" and "sacrilege" always catch my eye.
The video first appeared on a gay "dating" app and was brought to the archdiocese by Bishop Pat Buckleyso we have a good idea what Pat does at night in the rectory. ( I love spending time in the rectory. ) Two guys aged 18 and 19 claim they met the priest through the site and he brought them to St. Bartholomew's. The church has not identified the cleric in question, although people whisper it is Father Michael Lomasney, who resigned due to alcoholism. There is concern that the church has to be reconsecrated due to the sacrilege. Some parishioners are even calling for an exorcism! Yeah, like this is the first time a Catholic priest had gay sex on an altar.
Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black have a new young man in their livesand, no, it isn't what you think. They recently posted, "Welcome to the world our precious little Robbie Ray Black-Daley. The amount of love and joy you have brought into our life is immeasurable, our precious little son." Within days, online trolls began clamoring for the child to be removed from the home and accused the diver of child abuse. One such tweet said, "It's astonishing. Twitter has been full of outrage about children being taken from their mothers on the Mexican border but, when Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black take a baby from its mother, everyone says how wonderful it is." Now, I don't know the details of their surrogacy deal, but I would reckon nobody was taken from anyone.
Speaking of British divers, our "Ask Billy" question comes from Patrick in Boston: "You wrote about nude photos of Freddie Woodward before. Are those the same photos he's suing about?"
Back in 2015, the allegedly heterosexual Woodward took part in the "Naked Issue" of the UK Gay Times. All of a sudden, his lawyers are threatening to sue websites posting the three-year-old photos. Or perhaps they mean those even nuder ( and erect ) photos that fell into my hands. If anyone's interested, they're on BillyMasters.com .
When we've got an erect diver in our hands, it's definitely time to end yet another column. Due to a scheduling snafu, my first week in Provincetown straddled both Circuit and Bear weeks. Alas, I'm too fat for the circuit boys and too thin for the bearsI'm a man without a week! While I try to find one, you can find loads of ... well, loads on www.BillyMasters.comthe site that has something for everybody ( and every body ). If you have a question, dash it off to Billy@BillyMasters.com . Until next time, remember: One man's filth is another man's bible.
