BOY CULTURE REVIEW: ***1/2 out of ****
Sylvester (September 6, 1947—December 16, 1988) was a force of nature—he forced his nature on a world that was at times unwilling to accept him for the person he didn't choose to be, and for the person he chose to be. It's hard to imagine Sylvester's brand of authenticity bringing him success in the 1970s, but he had a good imagination because success is what he had. With some indelible disco classics and a refusal to play the game required of most other popular singers, he became a gay icon and an inspiration in his short life—he died of AIDS at 41.
In Mighty Real: A Fabulous Sylvester Musical, Anthony Wayne (who also wrote the book and is co-director and co-producer with his partner Kendrell Bowman) resurrects Sylvester, doing a damn fine job of disproving any notion that Sylvester was inimitable. In a performance that's informed by Wayne's obvious respect for the icon, he recalls without mimicking Sylvester's piercing falsetto in a string of soaring musical numbers that draw from the entertainer's entire oeuvre.

As you may or may not have heard, Facebook is cracking down on drag queens and other performers not using their legal names on their accounts. As James St. James—sorry, James Clark—points out, this is absurd:
“Fucking Facebook. Shutting down my account until I change my name back to James Clark. Fucking ridiculous. Are they doing this to Lady Gaga or Whoopi Goldberg or whoever? And what if I identified as Jane Clark? Would they force me to post as a gender I didn't identify as? Who else is experiencing this and what can you do?”
It's discriminatory and insulting and it's a policy that should change. By all means, make someone submit their legal name when signing up, but why shouldn't we be able to use stage names or nicknames to identify ourselves publicly?

Great clip from 1986 from Joan Rivers's failed talk show: Joan interviews Sylvester (September 6, 1947—December 17, 1988)—following a rare national TV performance—and the diva brings up the fact that herself, Rivers and fellow guest Charles Nelson Reilly (January 13, 1931—May 25, 2007) did a benefit for AIDS in 1983, way before other celebs made it a cause celebre.
Sad that all three are now gone...
