There’s a New Calvin Klein In NYC Featuring a Naked Male Model. Where’s the Outrage?

THE SHOT — We’ve deduced that the only thing that gets New York City residents (and the tabloid newspapers who quote them en masse) riled up more than a MTF fare hike is a Calvin Klein billboard featuring a scantily clad male model. Indeed, sexy lady models are fine with the passers-by. Which has us wondering: How long until this new billboard featuring model David Agbodji gets everyone furious?

      Complain? No way. What NYer would want to be accused of homophobia AND racism?

      MTFs are charging for a ride now? Think I’d better spring for a monthly pass.

      The way the light hits his oiled body is pretty gorgeous.

      Calvin used a Black model this time. No outrage will come. Very shrewd especially coming from a man who never uses Black models on his catwalks. Or cynical. I never buy his stuff anyway because of his casting issues. Sorry CK.

      @Brent: Ummmm…. how is this ugly? This ad is no way offensive. Isn’t the human body a work of art, well at least some.

      Queerty’s headlines are worthy of outrage. Today it’s a missing word (billboard? ad?). Usually there’s a misspelled word or two, though.

      Saint Lucia: Situation of homosexuals; availability of support groups and state protection (2006-2009)
      The International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (ILGA) indicates that homosexual acts are illegal in Saint Lucia (ILGA May 2009, 35; see also GlobalGayz n.d.; Canada 1 June 2009, Sec. 8). According to Section 133 of Saint Lucia’s Criminal Code, No. 9 of 2004 (Effective 1 January 2005):

      1) A person who commits buggery commits an offense and is liable for conviction on indictment to imprisonment for –

      a) life, if committed with force and without the consent of the other person

      b) ten years, in any other case.

      2) Any person who attempts to commit buggery, or commits an assault with intent to commit buggery, commits an offence and is liable to imprisonment for five years.

      3) In this section “buggery” means sexual intercourse per anus by a male person with another male person. (ILGA May 2009, 35; Saint Lucia 2004, Sec. 133)

      Although there is no law specifically forbidding homosexual acts between two women (United and Strong Mar. 2009), Section 132 of the Criminal Code, regarding “Gross Indecency” states that “[a]ny person who commits an act of gross indecency with another person commits an offence and is liable on conviction on indictment to imprisonment for ten years or on summary conviction for five years” (ILGA May 2009, 35). Gross indecency is defined as “an act other than sexual intercourse (whether natural or unnatural) by a person involving the use of the genital organs for the purpose of arousing or gratifying sexual desire” (ibid.). However, the Criminal Code states that this law does not apply when “committed in private between an adult male person and an adult female person, both of whom consent” (ibid.). In a telephone interview with the Research Directorate, a board member of the Caribbean Vulnerable Communities (CVC), a coalition of community leaders and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) which provides services for groups vulnerable to HIV infection (CVC n.d.), stated that as of June 2009 these laws are still in effect (CVC 10 June 2009). According to the CVC Board Member, the laws are enforced, although not always prosecuted (ibid.).

      @WhereAreTheRealMen?: Okay don’t be ignorant, if you don’t know where a place is….look it up! St. Lucia is a beautiful caribbean island; however, it is not gay friendly. So the irony here is that the ad is running (annoyingly) on a gay web site. PEACELUVNBWILDYALL!
