The weekend kicks off with pre-parties on Friday, March 27, hosted by all the major studios with porn stars traipsing all over the Castro, followed by The 2009 GayVN Awards (buy discounted tickets now), hosted by Janice Dickinson, Margaret Cho and Alec Mapa at the Castro Theatre on Saturday March 28. Then everything culminates with NakedSword’s SHAMELESS at Wunderland (get your tickets now before they all go!)
If you’re not going to be in town, you can still take part, Oscar-style, by watching a whole pile of nominated films on NakedSword, and keeping up with all The Sword’s coverage of the winners this weekend.

It's an interview with Phillip Aubrey: porn star, Spencer Reed's boyfriend, burp fetishist.
The COLT superstars joined a protest in Rome against the Catholic Church in order to make the claim that gay people are not pedophiles. There was a chihuaha involved.
I feel sorry for people with fetishes that can never be realized in real life. Take this Flickr user, who has to make do with his giants fetish using Photoshop.
I'm not one for bragging about intellectual accomplishments (it's something I learned from, you know, graduating with honors from Brown University), but Conner Habib is justifiably excited about his blurb in a book written by Carl Sagan's son.
