At Least the GOP Has a Choice of Bad Presidential Picks

(132) Comments | Posted February 5, 2015 | 11:54 AM

It's fun to watch the GOP take over Congress and instantly make fools of themselves while their party implodes. Until you realize that one reason Republicans won the majority in both houses in the midterms after the "shellacking" during the previous midterms is that Democrats are failing to fire up...

How This Jaded Queen Was Taught the True Meaning of Pride... in Kalamazoo (PHOTOS)

(8) Comments | Posted June 28, 2014 | 8:07 AM

I wasn't expecting to get a reality check from a place that sounds like it came out of a Dr. Seuss book. (In fact, the local airport even sells T-shirts that read, "Yes, there really is a place called Kalamazoo.") But I was hired to perform at their Pride festival...

In Defense of Alec Baldwin

(8) Comments | Posted February 25, 2014 | 6:50 PM

Several months ago I was scrolling down my Facebook newsfeed when I saw a venomous post about Alec Baldwin. Apparently he'd used an anti-gay slur, and it wasn't the first time. I did a little research on what happened, and I learned that the actor appeared...

Sugga Pie Koko and the cast of Friday's regular dragstravaganza Hot Mess opened the mary-thon with a demented Lion King...

Heartwarming Stories Are Great, But Bad Things Still Happen to Gay People in Ohio

(127) Comments | Posted January 5, 2013 | 9:57 AM

In Columbus, Ohio, this past August, I had a very different experience from the one detailed in a recent HuffPost blog in which Joel Diaz describes the positive experience of witnessing fellow customers and staff at a pizza restaurant come to his defense when an anti-gay customer began...

Willam Belli, RuPaul's Drag Race Star, Chats About Chick-fil-A and More

(29) Comments | Posted July 24, 2012 | 7:50 PM

A few weeks ago, someone forwarded me a photo of a Chick-fil-A billboard on which the company bragged, in their familiar lettering, that they'd donated over $2 million to anti-gay groups. I have no idea if the billboard was real or not, but when president Dan Cathy verified...

Broadway Bares: Fighting HIV/AIDS With 'Happy Endings' (And Yours Truly!)

(0) Comments | Posted June 21, 2012 | 3:01 PM

This past Sunday I gagged over Broadway Bares -- and I thought I'd lost my gag reflex long ago. But the dizzying spectacle/AIDS benefit, celebrating its 22nd year, broke its own fundraising records to raise $1,254,176. That brings the overall total to over $9.8 million since...

Am I the Only Gay Who Eyes Obama's 'Evolution' on Gay Marriage With Suspicion?

(106) Comments | Posted May 10, 2012 | 7:05 PM

As we gear up for nationwide pride celebrations that claim to celebrate our diverse community, I hope I'm allowed to express an opinion that seems different from most. Bitter Bunny held off to let you celebrate before weighing in with her cup of bitterness. But as a card-carrying atheist, a...

Don't Ask, Don't Go!

(12) Comments | Posted November 18, 2010 | 2:12 PM

I sure hope that Don't Ask, Don't Tell is repealed. Gays deserve equal rights across the board. Case closed.

That said, why on earth would anyone want to enlist right now?

The two unpopular wars we're fighting barely even came up in the midterm elections. Except with gays -- for...

When Beauty Queens Turn Ugly

(33) Comments | Posted March 2, 2010 | 4:34 PM

What is it with anti-gay beauty queens?

You'd think these gals would appreciate the gay hairdressers, make-up artists and designers who give them their winning edge -- and often friendship.

First there was Anita Bryant, a 70's Miss America runner-up who campaigned so tirelessly against gay rights that she sparked...

It's About The Priorities, Stupid

(11) Comments | Posted October 12, 2009 | 6:07 PM

We already knew that Obama's a riveting speaker. And his joke about opening for Lady Gaga was a surefire hit. But he didn't even give the gays a timeline for his promise to repeal "don't ask, don't tell." Is that all we get from our self-proclaimed "fierce advocate" in the...
