Más de 10.000 hombres que vestidos únicamente con el fundoshi pelean durante horas por conseguir tocar al 'Hombre Espíritu'. Este ritual sintoísta llamado Hadaka Matsuri (El festival del hombre desnudo) celebra el año nuevo lunar y data de hace 500 años siendo la recompensa de aquel que toque al Shin-otoko suerte y salud para el resto del año.

It was about time to come out of the closet for DC and Marvel superheroes. The first one was Northstar from Marvel a not-so-popular, Canadian and not American one, of course now upgraded to be an X-Men.
So, it is time for DC to choose one and give the audiences a handsome open-minded hero that will keep sales in the lgbt market running and may help things get netter for the young ones coming out. The best of all we´ll see gay kisses on superheroe movies from now on.

Documentary: Transsexuals in Iran - part 1/4 por mut_dua
An amazing documentary about how the Iranian government forces homosexuals into sex change operations to preserve tradition and eradicate the possibility of living a happy life as gay people in Islamic societies.
The story includes a doctor making big business with this operations, the struggle of young people to get their rights as human beings, even as little rights as women have, the strict vision of the Islamic government, the law and rulers, the point of view of their families who have to endure social punishment. Homosexuals and Lesbians make their decision to change their gender even because of not having other options.
More than 1450 operations have been performed by this clinic, where the government pays half the cost and each family has to cover the other 50%. After Thailand, Iran is today the country whit the record of more sex change surgeries performed.
