Trump Family Values Comments (7)


These little-dicked Trumps killing wildlife in Africa—despicable. How do you kill an elephant and cut off its tail and feel good about that? I wish that entire family nothing but the absolute worst.

At last, David Mixner's At Home with Myself: Stories from the Hills of Turkey Hollow (Magnus Books) is available. I've had the pleasure of meeting the man, interviewing him and seeing his stage debut, and anything he writes is well worth patronizing—he's probably among the top 10 figures in LGBT history. The book was written from his remote Turkey Hollow home, where fewer distractions led to more time for Mixner's characteristically deep thought and keen observation.

If you buy the book and read it, please post back here with your thoughts.

Mixing It Up With Mixner Comments (1)

Last night, I was honored to be invited to David Mixner's 65th birthday/book launch Img153 party for his new work At Home with Myself: Stories from the Hills of Turkey Hollow (Magnus), held at his favoriate restaurant, the Glass House Tavern on W. 47th. It was a lot of fun, with hilarious toasts by Marylouise Oates (former L.A. Times columnist and wife of Bob Shrum) and some of Mixner's best friends.

Judith Light made the final toast, as the coconut birthday cake was cut, wishing him a full return to good health.

It Gets Worse...Much Worse Comments (1)

Sen. (for now!) Scott Brown (R-Massachusetts) skipped out on the It Gets Better campaign. As David Mixner points out, it's another sign the Republicans are trying to destroy the entire concept based on its founder like liking Christianity and having a bombastic way of expressing himself. This wouldn't be the first baby Republicans tossed out with what they perceived as bathwater. It's pathetic.

In The Mixner Comments (1)

Just had a great lunch with the legendary LGBT rights warrior David Mixner. What a fascinating man. Even if he wasn't from the Appalachian story-teller tradition, the content of his stories is so compelling it would be hard to turn a deaf ear. He's as smart and funny as you'd expect and is a joyful perv—so we got along like a house afire, chatting about the 2012 Republican contenders, Rock Hudson, The Real Housewives of New York and Africa. I can't wait to see his Dixon Place show on the 18th.

The Time Of Our Lives: An Interview With David Mixner Comments (0)

Davidmixner Legendary gay-rights advocate David Mixner was Bill Clinton's most trusted gay advisor until the president waffled on his promise to end the ban on military service for gay people, gifting the country with Don't Ask, Don't Tell. For decades, he's been a prominent voice in the struggle for our equal rights, a tough critic of our enemies as well as our fair-weather friends and an inspiration for everyone following the trail he's blazed.

SafariScreenSnapz001 During Dixon Places's 20th Annual Hot Festival on July 11th and 18th, Mixner will appear on stage in From the Front Porch: An Evening with David Mixner, a unique musical show about his life—and about ours. With Josh Zuckerman playing and singing his original songs to highlight the "chapters" of Mixner's life story, it's a can't-miss opportunity.

The July 11 show, a benefit for The Ali Forney Center, is all but sold out. But there are still cheap ($15!), good seats available for July 18, a performance the venue and the star hope will be especially appealing to the next generation of LGBT activists.

Boy Culture: What inspired this show—why did you want to tell your life story in this way?
