Jamaica's new Parliament building has the potential to become the country's most iconic edifice, according to the project's adviser and patron, Gordon Gill. "This could really be Jamaica's 'Dubai' moment. I think this new Parliament building, whichever of the designs actually wins, has the potential to become significant, our own iconic building, a postcard-type edifice that captures the spirit of the people and the direction in which the country is heading," he said. Gill, a Jamaican who leads a highly successful design and architectural firm based in Chicago in the United States also told The Gleaner that the impact that the construction may eventually have could outweigh all other major infrastructural accomplishments of the 56-year-old independent nation. "As the patron and the adviser, that's the drum I beat. That is what this project needs to do. It needs to bring a kind of vision and attention to the skill sets and quality of Jamaicans that other countries' projects do.

Jonny McGovern makes no apologies for his sexualized, in-your-face alter-ego The Gay Pimp. Back before podcasts and YouTube, McGovern released a pop music video parody starring The Gay Pimp that went viral, making its way through the video clubs of New York City then eventually across the country in gay clubs and AOL inboxes. “In the video The Gay Pimp was super gay AND in charge,” McGovern said in a 2015 interview with The Huffington Post. “He was in the power position turning the typically homophobic characters of frat boys and jocks into video hoes performing to please. We hadn’t really seen anything like that in a music video. It was a power flip that gay men found empowering and sexy.” McGovern has gone on to have a successful career as a stand-up comedian, musician and podcaster. He was also an original member of the hit LGBTQ-themed sketch comedy show, The Big Gay Sketch Show, which ran for three seasons on Logo. McGovern now hosts the hit web show … [Read more...] about Jonny McGovern heads to the Parliament House to Werk Qween!
