    LaQuisha's Odyssey may be the Gayme of the year - we hope!

    There are a squillion Kickstarter, Pozible and various crowd funding campaigns out there - so much so that it's all a bit too much - but this little gem from New Zealand's hairy, hirsuite diva LaQuisha Redfern has caught our eye!


    A pixel style 80's game, the Odyssey will delight GAY-mers of all levels we think - but it needs to get some legs financially before it can hit your device.


    Kickstarter is the chosen funding platform for the bearded one - and you can contribute if you like the idea, the rewards on offer (yep - you can get stuff for donating!) or even want to get a beta version of the game.


    We love the idea - it's Leisure Suit Larry meets Priscilla, and you know thats gonna deliver some laughs.


    The game witll be available on the following platforms:

    PC, MAC, iOS, Android, Linux


    You can check out the campaign on Kickstarter.

    We look forward to giving it a review on when it comes out!

    You can friend LaQuisha on


    Apple Rumoured to shrink connector on new iPhone

    A French website has claimed that the new iPhone 5 will shrink its connector down to a smaller pin count - thus rendering all accessories you may have purchased for previous devices useless.

    The current 30-pin port used on the iPhone and iPad is common place on all accessories like docks, alarm clocks, players, stereos and more - so its not going to make Apple very popular with its massive userbase if it does go down this path. (Remember VHS to DVD To Blu-Ray to 3D...  alot of annoyed people, even if it does generate new streams of income for companies. hmmm)

    The new connector is said to be a 19-pin port, though rumours have also suggested 9-pin and 8-pin ports.

    However, the leaked connector has 16 pins. This could still be consistent with the 8-pin rumour, since the connector is double sided with eight on each side. Apple has not confirmed any pin number, making it difficult to determine the legitimacy of the photo on that basis alone. But it does make you think - will Apple risk annoying its user base when other phone and device brands are starting to take hold in the market - potentially losing them a lions share of the business.

    As early adopters of technology the LGBTI market has a good stake in the Apple process - what do you think of this possible scenario? Apple is expected to announce the new iPhone during a special event on September 12. Rumours suggesting that it will then launch later in September are also gaining traction across tech blogs and sites.

    Take a world class photographer, who is his own right is a global superstar, add in a bunch of hunky blokes, some very creative peeps and a little dash of mobile technology, and you have a stunning new app.

    That's right - the famed "Pretty Masculine" series by Mike Ruiz is coming to an app - not just a slideshow of hunky men painted up and blamed to an inch of their pumped bodies, but an in depth interactive experience that will take you behind the scenes of the shoots, up close with the creatives and inside where few ever get to go.

    In his most recent iteration of the "Pretty Masculine" project, Mike Ruiz now delves further into his subconscious. As he continues to explore the inner recess of his psyche, "Pretty Masculine" extends out into the ethos and speaks to the photographer's digital audience, incarnated as an App. In so doing, we get to enjoy the fruits of his labor in a most palpable manner.

    Check out this sneak peek of the app, which is due to hit digital app stores in October - you can join Mike's Official Group for all the latest news, info, pics and vids too - direct from the man himself!
