Former U.S. Senator Harris Wofford, 90, Marrying A Man Comments (0)

Former Democratic U.S. Senator Harris Wofford, who lost his seat in 1994 49% to 47% to young Rick Santorum, has announced he will marry his longtime male partner in a moving essay for The New York Times.

Wofford is 90, his partner, Matthew Charlton, is 40. They have been together for 15 years, beginning five years after Wofford's wife's death.

Imagine being married for 48 years and also having a 15-year (so far!) relationship after that.

From Wofford's essay:

Too often, our society seeks to label people by pinning them on the wall — straight, gay or in between. I don’t categorize myself based on the gender of those I love. I had a half-century of marriage with a wonderful woman, and now am lucky for a second time to have found happiness.

For a long time, I did not suspect that idea and fate might meet in my lifetime to produce same-sex marriage equality. My focus was on other issues facing our nation, especially advancing national service for all. Seeking to change something as deeply ingrained in law and public opinion as the definition of marriage seemed impossible.

I was wrong, and should not have been so pessimistic. I had seen firsthand — working and walking with the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. — that when the time was right, major change for civil rights came to pass in a single creative decade. It is right to expand our conception of marriage to include all Americans who love each other.

Unfortunately, Wofford voted against a measure that would have allowed then President Bill Clinton to end the military's ban on gay service members.

*widget boy cultureGarrett Clayton sounds a little traumatized by having to mime sex with eight dudes for a King Cobra montage, remembers telling mom, “I don't know if I can do this.”

*widget boy cultureRIP Guy Hamilton. The director of four James Bond films dies @ 93.

*widget boy cultureThe average life expectancy for a white woman took a slight dip in 2014, it crept up for black men, other groups remained flat.

*widget boy cultureRandomly, Donald Trump has come out against NC's anti-trans law, says trans people should be able to use any bathroom they want, throws Caitlyn in the mix.

*widget boy cultureSomeone's ignorant mom “dressed up as a Mexican” on social media in order to insult trans people. Because trans women rape so many little girls in the john.

What Ever Happened To Cyndi Lauper? Comments (0)

Cyndi Lauper has a new country album to promote, and in the course of a wide-ranging interview with the pride of PrideSource, Chris Azzopardi, she had this to say about the woman to whom she has most frequently been compared and contrasted—Madonna:

You know, I always felt for me, I would've loved to do What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? with her... 'cause I think that's very funny! (Laughs hysterically) ... Come on! Who do you think I'd play? I'd play Baby Jane—I'd be torturin' her. Because she's always viewed as the bad girl, you know! They'd make her the good girl and I'd be the bad one. Or (we could do Joan Crawford's 1954 western-drama) Johnny Guitar—she'd be the righteous one (laughs). But whatever. Who knows!

Cute. Fun facts: Cyndi is 62, Madonna is 57. Bette Davis was 53 and Joan Crawford was 57 during the filming of What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?. In spite of so much good-natured and not-so-good-natured ribbing, society's impression of older women has changed drastically. After all, Madonna is still beyond relevant and Cyndi is garnering Tonys and putting out whatever kinds of albums she likes. Both are household names.

Madonna's reaction to the idea:

Bob Paris Is Still Burning Comments (0)
 

Personally speaking, I think we should create a new Thursday #meme: #TodayOnThursday. And in this spirit, today -- on...

Posted by Bob Paris on Thursday, March 31, 2016

I worked at St. Martin's Press when Michael Denneny published that crazy-popular book of Bob and Rod Jackson-Paris, one of the first (the first?) out gay celebrity couples I can recall knowing about. They were stunning and I was fascinated by their determination to be openly gay at a time when people were deciding AIDS meant being gay was bad after all.

I'm friends with Bob (the couple split up forever ago) on Facebook, and was pleasantly surprised to see a new pic 30 years later—and he's still lookin' good.

On Madonna Mania—Not The Good Kind Comments (0)

Madonna3Madonna will bury her critics—hopefully, literally. (GIF by Matthew Rettenmund)

The media needs to get off Madonna's click.

Tabloid journalists have been going the extra mile to try to paint Madonna in the most negative possible light during her Rebel Heart Tour. For a woman they've been calling “irrelevant” for years, it's remarkable that every time Madonna took the stage late, it spawned major international headlines and served as reliable clickbait.

On top of her tardiness, Madonna has been called out for being drunk or even on pills (or both), totally new fronts in the decades-long assault on her integrity as an artist and on her character. Already slurring her as a problem drinker, it wasn't a very big leap for the press to begin using the coded descriptor “bizarre” for Madonna's onstage behavior. Calling her bizarre, coupled with impugning her sobriety, is just a new way to make Madonna seem unworthy of her fame and success and of the support she receives from admirers—and becomes another argument for why the only woman to ever earn a billion dollars touring (helped along by $100+ on her latest tour) needs to retire already.

At age 57.

The latest scandal, hyped up to seem as vile as possible for outraged consumption by people planted in front of their computers: Madonna “humiliatingly” exposed an underage girl live onstage during her final concert in Brisbane, Australia. Except it turns out all that happened was an unintentional wardrobe malfunction (the fan was in a corset with nipple rings attached) that the 17-year-old fan described as “the best moment of my life.” The fan went on to state:
