queerguru weekly barometer


Each week queerguru takes a brief look at some of the big things that have made us smile and get a real ‘high five’ aka the ice cream emoji, and at the other end of the scale, those things that have really pissed us off and get a very big thumbs downs aka the famous ‘poop’ emoji.

This week’s icecream-e1461449826930include :




Tony Perkins, president of the anti-gay religious lobbying group the Family Research Council
 who says God sends natural disasters to punish gays has his home destroyed in a natural disaster

Mr. UK went Full-Frontal on UK’s New Naked Attraction Dating Show where you get selected purely on your physical attributes and you can see why he won. …… we all know that the US loves to copy Brit TV shows, maybe The Donald will host this one when he is looking for work in November

We really shouldn’t laugh at other’s misfortunes like this poor Japanese sportsman whose own pole got in the way of him winning an Olympic medal for pole vaulting but …..

queerguru doesn’t usually approve of re-making classic movies as they usually end up being total disasters, but we just might change our minds for Lady Gaga who is slated to star in a new version of A  Star Is Born.  She will never surpass Judy Garland, but she will certainly  do a better job than the version with Barbra Striesand!

Talking of remakes, out gay actor Ben Wishaw is going to do Mary Poppins. Correction, he is playing grown up Michael Banks, BUT we like the idea of him as a Mary too.

Olympic swimmer Rachele Bruni who won silver in the 10km marathon, and then decided to come out by dedicating the medal to her supportive girlfriend. Bruni was one of 51 out LGBT athletes in the Rio Games, but the only one from Italy.

If you cannot get enough of The Dancing with the Stars and America’s Next Top Model star Nyle DiMarco, then you’ll be happy to hear that his latest gig is a guest star with the Chippendales in Las Vegas.


Team GB captain Kate Richardson-Walsh and wife Helen have become the first same-sex married couple to win an Olympic gold in the same final. 

Openly gay Brit Olympic Diver Tom Daley may have been disappointed winning just one Bronze Medal BUT he also came away with a selfie pic with Greg Louganis the gay US diving champion who won multi Gay Medals in the 1980’s.

This weeks poop-e1461450074400 include:


Stacy Lorraine Naber
a transgender prison inmate hung herself in a Florida Correction Center after being forced to being treated as man 

Monsignor Lawrence McGovern, a Catholic priest in California, has been suspended after a straight married parishioner filed a lawsuit against for the unsolicited photos of his penis that he kept sending him.  A face pic would have been bad enough.

Out-gay billionaire Peter Thiel  …… ‘the only gay in the village‘ to make a speech at the Republican Convention lauding Trump and who secretly funded Hulk Hogan’s legal fees which succeeded in his vindictive campaign to shutter Gawker.

Ryan Lochte for his Little White Lie that will overshadow all his Olympic achievements the rest of this life.
