*widget boy cultureAndy Mientus reminds us that bisexuality exists:

 

Hey so it's #biweek- the week for the Bi kids to be visible. I try to be visible all the time just by being true to who I am openly, but I know many people struggle with this because of the stigma associated with bi-ness. I know that some of you, probably friends even, are reading this and rolling your eyes- "oh he's still holding on to that? Who is SHE kidding?"- and I don't blame you. Not many are open about it so we appear to be very rare creatures, maybe even mythical. I've definitely felt the pressure to just accept being lumped in as gay when I meet new people- correcting them feels super political and unnecessary in the moment but then later I realize that it's my own shame. I don't write this to position myself as an activist or a role model. I try to be the best person I can be always but I am just an actor, not a queer-studies professor, and I am learning along with everyone else. I have and will continue to put my foot in my mouth on issues so I won't pretend to know everything. What I do know is that because of my platform as an actor, kids reach out to me almost daily confused about their sexuality and it breaks my heart to learn that they are denying their hearts, bodies, and souls just because of what other people will think of them. We now talk about LGBT+ issues constantly but how often do we really consider the B in there? Have you ever doubted someone who tells you they are Bi- "Sure, Jan"- or debated the validity of that claim behind their back? Do you have a preconceived idea of what bi "really" looks like based on what TV and movies have told you? Do you think of it just as a sexual kink or as a true identity? When I encounter ignorance about my identity, I always try to approach it from a place of warmth and education, so this is not me lecturing the monosexuals out there. I'm inviting you this week to think about your own feelings towards bisexuals and ask yourself if there is any lingering doubt or prejudice there. If you think you could be bi, ask yourself what is holding you back from accepting it- is it your own developing feelings or your fear of society around you? Together, we can end that stigma. 🏳️‍🌈 📷: @lukefontana

Billy Name, One Of Andy Warhol's Last Surviving Superstars, Dies @ 76 Comments (0)

Billy Name—as William Linich, Jr.  rechristened himself—was the man who gave Andy Warhol's Factory its silvered surfaces, one of the most iconic, best-remembered aspects of the life of pop artist whose life was filled with many memorable details.

Name died Monday in New York of congestive heart failure. He was 76.

Along with painting the Factory (even the silverware!) silver, Name was a longtime protégé of Warhol's, his lover and a photographer of some acclaim.

Last year, while in the hospital, Name told the Guardian:

I didn’t consider myself a photographer until much later, when people started appreciating the work. I wasn’t influenced by any other photographer and I hadn’t looked at any books or shows. I just took the camera when Andy handed it to me and said, “Here, Billy, you do the stills photography.” I remember I went to the store the next day and bought the manual for the camera. That’s how it began.

Name vouched for the fact that Warhol really was genuine in his behavior, in his persona. As for Name's, he told the same interviewer of the heady days of the '60s:

I miss the times when I was really free.

This guy was a smart cookie—he had access to Andy Warhol in the '80s and made sure to get him to sign several Campbell's soup cans, a print and three Interview magazines. Watch his Antiques Roadshow auction-estimate reaction.

RIP Holly Woodlawn: Trans Warhol Superstar Dies @ 69 Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2015-12-06 at 7.52.23 PMOctober 26, 1946—December 6, 2015 (Credit for pic on right: Jeffrey Schwarz)


Holly Woodlawn TrashHolly Woodlawn, the Puerto Rican transgendered woman who became a Warhol Superstar in the early '70s, has died at 69 after a struggle with brain and liver cancer.

Woodlawn made her biggest impression in Paul Morrissey's film Trash (1970), opposite Joe Dallesandro.

Touchingly, Dallesandro visited with Woodlawn on the very day she died:

I arrived to the hospice and went to Holly's room, #403. I was next to her talking and telling her all the love that was...

Posted by Joe Dallesandro on Sunday, December 6, 2015

She was immortalized in Lou Reed's “Walk on the Wild Side” (1972) and wrote the highly regarded memoir A Low Life in High Heels in 1992, the same year in which she filmed a cameo in Madonna's music video for “Deeper and Deeper.”

Earlier this year, Woodlawn was name-checked on an episode of I Am Cait as a trans pioneer.
