OUT100 & About Comments (0)

I went to the OUT100 party in NYC last night, a bash meant to celebrate the magazine's annual list of 100 influential LGBTQ+ people.

I didn't have the energy to do red-carpet coverage, as I have at times; I could live without doing another red carpet for the rest of my life. This week has been draining, too. Additionally, I have been upset with Out recently for its, in my opinion, unnecessarily deferential piece on right-wing agitator Milo Yiannopoulous, who was given a dedicated photo shoot that suggested he was merely a clown. He's worse.

But I went and it was relatively nice to be surrounded by—as my friend called it—brethren. (Forgive the male lean.)

The party was smaller than usual, and I didn't spot stars. Was sorry to realize later that I missed Joanna Cassidy, among others.

The sad part was everyone had stories about family, friends and co-workers who had voted for Trump and who said they weren't against gay people, but ...

Then as I was leaving, a black SUV with the alarming vanity license A ARYAN picked up some of the people from the event. I have to believe it was a hired ride and that there was no connection, but seeing that after hearing stories that have popped up about kids and others attacking people for being gay or of color in Trump's wake was eerie.

I also witnessed a white Wall Street type being extra-rude to an Indian clerk at the 7-11 on my block, annoyed that the guy's accent seemed to slow his ability to quickly retrieve a favored brand of cigarettes. I wasn't dreaming, because as I walked home, the Wall Street type's female companion shouted WHAT? and stopped walking with him. He kept going and cockily called back, C'mon, we're not kids. Her response was, Do you realize women bleed to death from illegal abortions? Literally bleed to death?

I'd also heard a well-heeled black women telling a friend, Well, Trump's a New Yorker, I really don't believe he ... And the rest, unheard, was obvious.

I don't know if Trump despises gay people, though it's a safe bet he has a macho disdain for us. (Ask Roy Cohn how he feels about gays with HIV.) But I don't care. I'm not trying to determine if he is anti-gay, I already know he has no choice but to do anti-gay things to please his constituency.

So that was my night, and that is why the very nice party felt very, very somber.

Gay YouTuber Formally Charged With Faking His Alleged Assault, Vandalizing Vehicle Comments (0)

British YouTube personality Calum McSwiggan, who falsely claimed he had been attacked by three men in WeHo—spinning it as a hate crime—has been formally charged with vandalism and making a false report to a peace officer.

McSwiggin posted to social media about the June 26 incident, which he said occurred outside The Abbey, “With three broken teeth and six stitches in my forehead, I've never felt so terrified to be a gay man in the public eye.”

Police quicky determined he had caused his most serious wound himself, a fact he now admits. He still clings to the debunked claim that he was beaten up, but authorities and witnesses claim he intentionally damaged the mirror and bumper of a car in the lot and then faked the attack in order to implicate the car's owner and two others.

McSwiggan says he resents being called a disagrace to his community. Police say he's a damn liar.

His plea this week: Not guilty.
