Nypd-dance(Video stills via YouTube @Paige Ponzeka)

Via NYDN: Officer Michael Hance, who tasted viral fame in 2015 when he was caught on video spontaneously doing a bump and grind with a reveler at the Gay Pride Parade, has succumbed to cancer at age 44.

His cancer was directly linked to his brave actions on 9/11, when he worked at the World Trade Center following the attacks.

Hance was diagnosed with cancer just this past November after a fall at home.

WHEN WE RISE: A Valiant Effort Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2017-02-25 at 11.46.16 AM(Image via ABC)

When We Rise, ABC's miniseries event written by Dustin Lance Black to capture the long arc of the gay-rights movement, debuts February 27 on ABC at 9 p.m. Positioned as a gay Roots, it isn't, at least judging from the opening installment.

A terrific idea bogged down by too broad a scope — the creatives seemingly try to jam in every aspect of the LGBTQ movement from the early '70s on  — When We Rise is further done in by a canned, stagey quality with dialogue that's forced to cue viewers about significant milestones rather than allowed to serve the characters. That makes it more docu than drama, and leads to a preachy tone.

Screen Shot 2017-02-25 at 12.11.45 PM

Among the performances, Jonathan Majors & Charlie Carver are briefly sweet together in a Vietnam War romance, Austin P. McKenzie has an ethereal idealism as young activist Cleve Jones and Emily Skeggs, whose character finds herself caught in the crossfire between the feminist and lesbian movements, nails the mix between personal coming-of-age and finding one's greater purpose.

Guy Pearce doesn't come off nearly as well.

Famous faces like him— Rosie O'Donnell, Whoopi Goldberg, Rachel Griffiths — tend to feel like stars whose presence helped get this made; friendly faces, but distracting more than acting.

Though When We Rise is by no means great drama, let's hope it will draw in some non-gay viewers desperately in need of some enlightenment, and some LGBTQ viewers desperately in need of reminding that people fought and died for their rights — and that those rights could be in the process of going up in smoke.

Bottom line: Commendable endeavor, informative, occasionally quite watchable, but not great art. If you can live with that, you might find yourself hooked for the run.

6-PACK — Grinding Prince Charming + Orlando Pride + Bannon Raised Up + Trump's Anti-Gay Minions + Maddow On Pence's Anti-Gay Moves + History: The Gay Marine Who Saved Ford! Comments (0)
 

Reunion Recap.. I just have to get this off my chest. Since the word "authentic" was used so many times on the show Finding Prince Charming by that fraud of a bachelor. I think it's time that someone takes heed to their own advice. How about being authentic that you're still hooking. It's been proven many times that you are. Also branding yourself as an "interior designer" when we all know that is a completely, and poorly, manufactured FAKE business, I mean, your portfolio speaks for itself. How about coming clean that you embezzled over $40K from the Atlanta rainbow crosswalks project. I just happen to be friends with some of the donors. They want their money back! Also, stealing Rolex's off the nightstand of your hookups. How about being authentic about the fact that you have physically abused your partners in every relationship that you have had, including and not limited to launching blunt objects at their head, like a computer. How about being authentic about the fact that you actively pursued me, Brandon, Eric and Paul right after the show wrapped. How about being authentic about seeing your Johns just before and AFTER the show finalized shooting. Oh, and last but definitely not least, how about that time you pursued me a DAY after you were with Eric to try and hook up with me in Chicago during market days after saying you were not with anyone. Just to be very clear, none of us knew about Roberts past and consequently, his present about being a rent boy. Here's a lovely pic of Robert and I at Market Days in Chicago. For the record, he tried to sleep with me. But even then, without knowing what I know now, I wouldn't go near that science experiment. And by science experiment I'm talking about his penis. I insisted that we should just cuddle. Stop LYING! Peace out you sociopathic ho! #realtalk #thetruth #exposed
