He Is A Gay American Comments (0)

April May 2015 - Larry Kramer HI

Larry Kramer is back with his new novel, The American People: Volume 1—Search for My Heart. He's an inspirational and terrifying figure, and his story of how and why he wrote this novel (started in 1975, when I was in first grade) is fascinating:

“Oh, I don’t know. Why does every gay writer start out? To write his Proust? And so I wrote my Proust. The title comes from that speech by Reagan which really did hit me, where I knew he was talking about ‘the American people,’ and I know that I was not part of that crowed that he was talking about. It was so obvious. There has never been any history book written where the gay people have been in history since the beginning. It’s ridiculous to think that we haven’t been here forever.”

Even if Kramer rubs you the wrong way—and he shouldn't—you gotta give him that.

Madonna

Madonna is Rolling Stone's cover girl for the zillionth time; out tomorrow. Also tomorrow: Watch the Brits live here around (I think) 2PM ET.

Madonna will perform selections from Victor/Victoria. Take that, Gaga!

No, actually, she is supposedly getting a lifetime achievement honor and performing at least two tracks. Reviews of Rebel Heart are very positive; so far, it seems IN to say Madonna has put out her best since Ray of Light. Check Telegraph (gotta love a 4/5-stars review that raves it's her “least desperate” album in a while), The Sun and Attitude.

Also, The Advocate has published a piece arguing on Madonna's behalf.

Keep reading for a rather amazing homage to “Vogue”...

Gay Sites For Sore Eyes Comments (0)

Gay

Surfing the internet is a thing enjoyed by practically everyone nowadays, and gay men are by no means an exception to this rule. It’s been another great year for the internet’s gay community, with a huge amount of new sites being released, a large number of different groups finding their place on the web, and awareness of gay issues continuing to be spread far and wide.

Here are some of the best sites of the moment!

Shout Out Health

Raising awareness of gay health issues, Shout Out is a great resource for the whole of the gay community. Presented in a question/answer format, the site has all of the most commonly asked questions that one might run in to, covering all of the most pressing issues in the gay community. Alongside this, there’s plenty of news, features and editorials to keep readers enlightened concerning gay health and cultural developments.

Nifty

For those that like to get a little naughty, without sacrificing imagination and the runaway nature of the mind’s eye, Nifty has it all. There are thousands of erotic stories written by and archived for every member of the LGBT community, and the opportunity for users to flex their own authorly muscles, creating their own reader base in the process.

GayGamer

Gaming has truly become the pastime of our age, with every group across society enjoying the act of kicking back and enjoying a few relaxing games. GayGamer is the prime portal for the homosexual community’s gamers, and has all of the news, reviews, features and forums one would expect from a gaming site, but all geared towards the gay audience. A special mention should also be given to Uptown Aces, where gamers who feel they have a little more luck on their side can go to blow off a little steam and perhaps even win a little cash in the process!

Homorazzi

For all of the news, features and gossip, Homorazzi is a wonderful site that truly deserves a place on the list. The site’s opinions and pieces have been known to really influence mainstream aspects of gay culture and public opinion and the entertainment and gossip sections are truly first rate! There’s literally something for everyone on this site.

Advocate

Keeping up to the minute on political developments regarding the gay community, Advocate is known far and wide for its excellent coverage of issues; another site that has consistently molded and informed the public debate on the role of the gay community, and LGBT empowerment in general.

Yes, Icon: Laverne Cox Covers THE ADVOCATE Comments (0)

August September 2014 - Laverne Cox LO

Laverne Cox is a cover girl for The Advocate (August/September 2014), and has a fabulous cover line emblazoned across her chest: THE MAKING OF AN ICON.

In the interview, she says:

“If I’m going to have a public platform, I want to use it not just to elevate myself but to elevate issues that are important to me. I know a lot of people would rather not have me be the face of this thing...but what’s exciting about what’s happening now, culturally, is that there are so many more trans folks coming forward and saying, 'This is who I am, this is my story, I will not be silent anymore, I will not be in hiding anymore,’ and that’s when a movement really happens, right?”

Click here to hear her speak about landing the cover of Time (before The Advocate!). After the jump, one of my (brief) meetings with Cox...
