Stu Rasmussen is the Mayor of Silverton, Oregon and also the first out trans mayor!  Stu says he always wanted breasts, and so went out and got himself some, along with some heels, dresses and lovely jewlery.  This CNN video clip gives some great interview questions with Stu, who says he likes being a heterosexual man who looks like a woman.  I’m especially touched by the people who drop by during the interview to say hello and congratulate Stu.

Contemporary singer John Barrowman‘s newest video for What About Us comes out in the states on November 17, but has already been released in the UK, which means we all get to watch it now. The song is what Ben and I would term “soooo smooth”. It’s perfectly matched by the video which features two distressed couples (therapy term for you, there) as they struggle to focus on prioritizing their relationship instead of their individual differences. The video features a straight couple and a male/male gay couple mirroring each other’s concerns and efforts throughout the day.

John is Scottish (although he did some growing up in IL) and has worked as an actor and musician. Fans of the BBC will know his acting well. He was 2006’s Stonewall Entertainer of the Year, and recently adopted an adorable puppy named Harris with his partner, Scott Gill.

Claudia Solis & Manuel Uribe - To be Married 10/26/08

Claudia Solis & Manuel Uribe - To be Married 10/26/08

Manuel Uribe Gaza, formerly the world’s fattest man, and Claudia Solis are engaged! The date is set for the 26th of this month – so soon! Manuel, who is 43, topped out at around 1,235 lbs, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, and has since lost 550+ pounds from diet and exercise. He actually turned down an offer for free gastric bypass surgery in order to do it the natural way, under medical supervision. How refreshing! It’s worth noting that he has very large growths on his legs due to plastic surgery gone wrong, which further inhibit his efforts to walk. Manuel has previously stated that he and Claudia are “already married in the eyes of God” and that they are sexually active. Last time I wrote about Manuel, he was saying that he wasn’t going to wed until he could stand next to his wife, but word is that he can’t leave his bed yet. Perhaps he has a surprise planned for all of us, or maybe true love couldn’t wait. Regardless, Exploring Intimacy wishes them a long and loving union!

“Natalie Dylan” has her new porn name, and at 22 she is still a virgin, but not for much longer. She aims to sell her first time to a high bidder who also strikes her fancy. Maybe that will be the highest bidder, maybe not. At any rate, she is hoping to discover gold between her thighs to the tune of $1,000,000 or more. Whew! Intercourse typically lasts for somewhere around 2 minutes, so that would be be $8,333.33 per second there. Take it slow, winning bidder, take it slow! Bidding was launched by Howard Stern on his satellite radio show, and is being conducted on the Bunny Ranch’s site…though her page (which says she is 21) leads to a profile that is set up for regular appointments.

Would anyone care if she wasn’t hot? …if she were a boy? Silly questions.

More pics, links ‘n stuff after the jump.

Ellen and Portia’s beautiful wedding video came out on YouTube. Take a look, and be sure to turn on your audio in order to enjoy the background music. It got me a little misty eyed! Miss their wedding announcement and pap pics? They weren’t nearly as nice, but you can find them – here
