Should Gus Kenworthy And Caitlyn Jenner Have Partied With The Prince Of Brunei?

by Dan Tracer August 06, 2016


Earlier this week we reported on an item from the blog Kenneth in the (212) ab0ut out Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy sharing a photo from the prince of Brunei’s birthday party, only to delete the pic a few minutes later. We were initially skeptical of the story, but in fact Kenneth got it right, reaching out to Gus himself who confirmed the story.

The recovered photo (above) shows Kenworthy with his boyfriend, actor Matt Wilkas, and Caitlyn Jenner, having a grand old time at Prince Azim’s London soirée.

Why would this be a big deal? Well as we noted, Brunei imposes harsh penalties on LGBTs, up to and including death for consensual gay sex. The optics of high-profile Western members of that locally oppressed group rubbing shoulders with the son of the sultan are disappointing for obvious reasons even though we don’t know exactly the prince’s stance on his country’s horrendous antigay laws.

But some readers pointed out that partying with the son of the antigay sultan might not be so bad after all (we won’t even get in to the rumors that have circulated for years about Azim’s own sexuality). Maybe having openly gay and trans folk at his party could lead the young man to have some, well, difficult conversations with dad about the critical importance of equality everywhere.

What’s your take? Party or not?

Sounds off in comments…

Racism Is A Major Problem In The Gay Community, And This Election Proves It

by Dan Tracer October 27, 2016

Racism is a problem in the gay community and you need look no further than the current presidential campaign, argues Gabe Gonzalez in a new video from Mic. “Nothing more clearly illustrates that racism is alive and well in the gay community than this election cycle,” Gonzalez says. “Don’t believe me? Ask the gays. For Trump.” [...]
