    FOF #2949 - Making Out with Strangers

    While there are a lot of similarities between the AIDS crisis of the late 80s and today’s Covid pandemic, one thing that’s been hard for a lot of people is not being able to meet up for a little hanky panky, not even get a little kiss.

    Well, pucker up lovers, cause that’s all about to change.

    Health experts are saying that at this point in the pandemic, a kiss is once again just a kiss, and like ACT-UP said in the 80s, greed and indifference are the real killers.

    Today we’re taking a look at new health guidelines that are saying if you’ve had your covid shots, it’s probably ok to kiss and hook up with strangers.

    FOF #2948 - Loving: A Collection of Photos of Men in Love Transcends Time

    “Love is love” became the rally cry of the modern LGBTQ+ movement, declaring that love is universal among all people. But in the past, the love that dared not speak its name found other ways to express itself in photography.

    Photography allowed loving couples to document their relationship even if they had to hide the pictures away in drawers or books for fear of being discovered.

    Thankfully, photograph collectors and real life married couple Hugh Nini and Neal Treadwell have uncovered thousands of intimate photos of same sex couples, many of which are featured in their new book: Loving: A Photographic History of Men in Love 1850s-1950s.

    Today Hugh Nini and Neal Treadwell join us to take a look at these marvelous photographs from their book Loving and untangle the secret codes men had for expressing love and intimacy.

    FOF #2947 - Lil Nas X Rides the Pole Down to Hell

    A great entertainer says what we’re all feeling, and since it’s been a hell of a year, Lil’ Nas X hung up his adorable pink cowboy hat and traded it for a skin tight bondage getup to ride a stripper pole to hell.

    Lil Nas X’s new music video Montero has everything: he plays all the characters in a magical biblical world, Adam in the Garden of Eden, the seductive serpent, his own judge and judy condemning him to hell where he booty bounces for the devil, also played by himself, where spoiler alert! He snaps old Lucifer’s neck, steals his horns and becomes the new queen of hell.

    With a Lil Nasty help from right wing outrage, the single has shot to #1 on the charts, and his collaboration with fashion line MSCHF to sell Satanic sneakers embedded with a single drop of human blood has raked in $666,000 and opened up a trademark infringement lawsuit from Nike!

    Now Lil Nas is wrestling with the real devil: corporate lawyers!

    Today we’re cutting loose like Lil Nas X did with the devil and looking at all the wild stuff rolling around regarding his new controversial video Montero and those wickedly evil shoes.
