Macy's Celebrates Pride And Joy 2017! Comments (0)

IMG_5379I was only too happy to capture his flag. (All images by Matthew Rettenmund)

I hit up the Macy's Celebrates Pride and Joy event at — where else? — Macy's in Herald 1462205918_prideSquare Tuesday night, where I found hundreds of cutely attired gay men taking advantage of free drinks, fun games (one guy told me he won a gift card on the first try) and free music from Dragonette, Marty Thomas Presents Divas and more.

There was also a fun photo booth and the required shirtless male models.

Macy's is a big supporter of Pride, and this bash — in collaboration with the always reliable TheMenEvent — is a must-attend each year.

Pride Month: It's No Good Without Billy Haines Comments (0)

Billy-Haines-smileHaines — his smile didn't intentionally hide anying, but he didn't read as gay to audiences. (Image via MGM)

William aka Billy Haines (1900-1973) bolted from Virginia in 1919 to live in NYC's Greenwich Village, where he lived with a male couple who'd been together for 40 years. He also befriended a same-sex couple who were living together, both of whom moved to Hollywood — becoming known as fashion designer Orry-Kelly (1897-1964) and movie star Cary Grant (1904-1986).

Billy entered a 1922 talent contest that lhe won, leading to an MGM contract and a career in Hollywood in the Silent Era. William-Haines-gay

Throughout the '20s, Haines gained a reputation as a popular leading man, one with a certain degree of sarcasm that today might be diagnosed as snark. His hits included the 1926 smashes Brown of Harvard and Tell It to the Marines (indeed).

He was also a carouser, notching up affairs with men and women, including an alleged one-off with Clark Gable (1901-1960), a more serious affair with superstar Ramon Novarro (1899-1968), and relationships with Norma Shearer (1902-1983) and Barbara La Marr (1896-1926).

In spite of Haines's success, his casual approach to being gay was a liability; in an era when coming out was unheard of, he was never really in, though he did tell reporters he was in love with actress Polly Moran (1883-1952), a pal. In reality, from 1926, he was in love with former sailor Jimmie Shields (1905-1974), with whom he lived.

NO ASIANS: Grindr Acquired By Chinese Tech Company Comments (0)

Via Joe.My.God.: A little-known Chinese tech company has bought Grindr, and will take over day-to-day operations.

Gay rights in China suck, but are alleged to be improving all the time.

How ironic that an app with a huge number of callously anti-Asian profiles will be owned by a Chinese firm? The only thing that would make it richer is if the CEO of that company were also — brace yourselves — not lean.

 
Off A Cliff: Flashback To A '70s Scandal Comments (0)

The socialite actress Dina Merrill died this week after battling dementia. She was 93.

Her second husband was the movie actor Cliff Robertson, an Oscar winner who died at 88 in 2011, and who suffered a major career setback in the 1970s for an unbelivable reason — he realized his agent had stolen $10,000 due to him, and he pointed it out.

That's it.

Check out this thrillingly well-written and blunt piece from 2011 by David Thomson, who summarized Robertson's appeal, his lack of appeal and why being right wasn't enough.
