THE REAL O'NEALS Gets A Season 2! Comments (0)

The-real-oneals-tv-review-abc(TV still via ABC)

Deadline reports that ABC has picked up mid-season replacement The Real O'Neals for a second season.

Noah Galvin plays gay Kenny O'Neal on the sitcom, about a conservative Irish Catholic family and its reaction to the various skeletons in its closets. Among the show's producers is Dan Savage, which made the series a target for anti-gay forces.

Reviews and ratings have been tepid, but any show the New York Post claims has “sets [a] new low” due to being “anti-Catholic,” and that the virtually one-man Catholic League has branded a threat to decency is certainly worth a look-see.

CONGRATS, DAN!

Dan Savage Compares Hillary & Trump On Gay Issues Comments (0)

Dan-savage(Video still via CBS)

Dan Savage made a lively appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, on which he summed up how Trump and Hillary would be as presidents when it comes to queer issues.

On Trump:

I think Trump is a dangerous demagogue and a racist, and will be bad for queer people if he gets elected—it will be bad for all Americans if he gets elected ... He has not really emphasized marriage equality or discriminating against LGBT people. He actually said that he opposed laws criminalizing trans people using the bathrooms that are appropriate for them to use. And so, it's kind of a mixed bag.

Although, he's surrounded himself with homophobes like Ben Carson, like Chris Christie, and he's promised to put people on the Supreme Court who will overturn marriage equality and forcibly divorce me 'cause that's pro-marriage.

So I don't trust Trump in the long-term ...

Savage seemed to be making the point that Trump hasn't used gay rights as a wedge issue, but then kind of remembered that Trump really has gone on the record as stating he opposes marriage equality.

On Hillary:

Sibilant: The True Story Of A Gay Man Possessed By 2 Separate Voices—A Review Of DO I SOUND GAY? Comments (0)

David-ThorpeThorpe looks butch in his film's opening ... but he worries that when he opens his mouth, a purse falls out.

BOY CULTURE REVIEW: **1/2 out of ****

In a documentary that's currently the buzz of the industry, filmmaker David Thorpe sets out to get some answers—and there is invariably more than one—to the age-old question: Do I Sound Gay? The casual, at times distressingly personal film raises questions about masculinity, sexual identity and self-image that are applicable to many gay men by chronicling his own personal struggle with how he sounds ... and how he thinks he sounds.

Do%20I%20Sound%20Gay%20Pic.jpg?g=1433856522569Thorpe has thought he sounds very gay for decades, and his friends agree. Where they're less agreeable is when he begins a mini-odyssey to change the timbre of his voice. We are not really used to gay stories being put forth with self-doubting gay heroes ... our community's message has been defiantly self-accepting for even longer than Thorpe has leaned on his sibilant S.

Visiting a voice coach, he's told people code-switch—raise or lower tones to communicate things like authority or affection—but all he cares about is not sounding like a “braying ninny.” Probably not fair, then, that one of the words on a list he reads to practice not sounding gay is “dynasty.” He's the right age that he probably couldn't help envisioning Joan Collins as he tried to utter it as someone, well, less gay might.

Thorpe's fragile ego is put forth to us the way you extend your hand to a dog—friends?—and for many viewers, I think his honesty will work. For me, it worked until it didn't, which was when the aggregate of his open-and-honest exclamations regarding his troubling voice made him come off as kind of on the verge of aspiration ally ex-gay. He's not ex-gay, but he wants his tongue to be.

Cousin It Comments (0)

“Tranny” can certainly be used as hate speech, as ably demonstrated by countless gay men who were so incensed by criticism of RuPaul that they responded not by arguing the opposite side but by spewing anti-trans words and thoughts all over the Internet...that'll teach 'em.

But this latest brouhaha involving Dan Savage at my alma mater is a sick joke; a trans person who prefers to be called “it” is dictating sensitivity to Dan Savage?

It can go fuck itself.
