My buddy Greg spotted this on a wall in Philly. Hope lots of voters see it and agree. The Dems can't lose Philadelphia.

And to give fair time, this is a work of, er, art I created totally by accident today when I grabbed a freebie newspaper to pick up after my dog:

Photographer On Milo Yiannopoulos: He's Faking It; SALON On Milo Yiannopoulos: No, He's Not Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-09-22 at 10.24.13 AM(Video still via Salon)

Jill Greenberg, who accepted the assignment to shoot Milo Yiannopoulos for Out, says she thinks he's just faking his persona. Amanda Marcotte of Salon—who was on the receiving end of a lecture by Yiannopoulous during the shoot and who he later called a bitch—thinks he's deadly serious.

Check out Salon's piece on the shoot for Out here.

Regardless, Salon covered Yiannopoulous in the way Out could have and should have and did not.

Out did a huge disservice to LGBTQ people and progressives in general by choosing to present a poisonous figure as a harmless clown, and Chadwick Moore's profile was utterly neutral and banal.

We don't need that. We don't need enablers who pretend they're provocateurs, and who argue that being provocative is more important than who you're provoking and why.

Herstory Lesson: Inside The Scott Nevins Fundraiser To Help Elect Hillary Clinton! Comments (0)

Rushed over to Scott Nevins's 49 Days Till Herstory Hillary Clinton fundraiser at Industry last night just in time for the VIP meet-and-greet, at which I was happy to see Scott, chat with Nick Adams and his biceps (Nick did most of the talking, his arms are the strong, silent type), the incredible Randy Rainbow (who recognized me by my “cute” face, blush) and Broadway superstar Laura Benanti.

DSC00458Benanti mock-fumed that a friend chatted with her for 20 minutes without realizing she as pregnant.

I raved to Laura about her performance in Gypsy, as well as her Melania Trump impersonation. No surprise, that impersonation because the centerpiece of a lively evening. (I'm hoping to receive my pic with her from a photog who was on hand.)

Scott had some funny words about how we all know Donald Trump, and how he came to be a Hillary fan in an anti-Clinton household:

*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
