From where I live now, I am thankful that I cannot reach for a spray or lozenge that will make it go away. No -- I'm kidding -- I'd kill for that. But in the absence of that easy fix, I have a new perspective and appreciation for my body and its frailty.

For anyone under 30, it may be difficult to imagine a time when the gay-rights movement wasn't operating at a milestone-a-minute pace. Fortunately a wave of artistic and media projects has emerged to remind us of heroes past, to refocus us on the type of activism that helped elevate the LGBT movement and to inspire us to make that final push.

Matthew McConaughey's 'McConaissance' Compared to De Niro, Brando

Andy Hoglund | Posted 05.03.2014 | Entertainment
Andy Hoglund

This career about-face fuels the perception that McConaughey has entered a realm untouched by any thespian, ever. Recent chatter places him in the same league as cinema's titans -- Hollywood's Mount Rushmore -- individuals who helped pioneer acting as both a craft and a calling, not merely a profession.

I won't dispute the fine work that McConaughey and Leto did in Dallas Buyers Club, but I can't shake the feeling that their intentions as artists were more about winning Oscars and less about telling the story of people dying from AIDS.

Why 'Dallas Buyers Club' Really Doesn't Deserve Any Oscars

Jack Mirkinson | Posted 04.30.2014 | Entertainment
Jack Mirkinson

This is a film in which the true hero of the AIDS movement is a straight bigot who helps educate all of the queer people he once despised about how to treat themselves and fight the system. In its haste to canonize Ron Woodroof, McConaughey's character, it almost entirely erases the real saints of the AIDS movement: the men and women of the LGBT community who saved their own lives.

The Best Picture rarely tells us what the best picture is. But it very often gives us a valuable glimpse into what our society is going through at the time of the award. I thought I'd take a stab at describing what a win for each contender would say about our current society.
