Den Brothers: Inside The BEARCITY 3 Premiere Comments (0)

It must've been the call of the wild, but I came out of hibernation for the BearCity 3 premiere in NYC tonight, held at the SVA Theatre as a gala to benefit PFLAG.

IMG_8293***_newThe poster's like “Where's Dildo?” — here, the handsome Matthew Montelongo & friend.

Cast member — and All Male, All Nude director — Gerald McCullouch was the one who invited me, and when Daddy tells you to do something, you do it.

The very funny film about love, lust, parenting and laughter, directed by Doug Langway, stars Kathy Najimy, Daniel Franzese, Stephen Guarino, Chris Salvatore, Joe Conti, Gregory Gunter, Matthew Montelongo, Brian Keane, J. Andrew Mullins, Bruce Howard Seeds, Jay Arseno, Richmond Chandler and many more, but for my money, the MVP is Guarino, one of the funniest people I've ever met.

Also hysterical was the story the warm and fuzzy Gunter told me while praising my blog. He'd already greeted me on impact, and then confessed he'd been sending all these gay links from my blog to a friend on Facebook, only to discover way, way into the process that he was sending it to a straight dude in Canada with the same name. When I asked what the guy said about it eventually, Greg joked, “'Don't ever come to Canada. And I have a boner.'”

A summary of BearCity 3, in case you need some catching up from the first IMG_8247***_new two (via the BearCity 3 team):

After a continuing losing streak that started at the altar, Roger tries to claw out of financial ruin and into the arms of Tyler. But Jay, Ty's hunky Fire Chief partner is not letting that flame blaze. Meanwhile, fireworks explode when Fred's obsessive tinkering on their bear documentary conflicts with Brent's baby prep and the unwavering due date of their new born. Mama Bear Michael faces major challenges and finds that love comes in all colors, shapes and sizes. Join us as we take one final adventure into the woods with the BearCity gang, where romance can sometimes be hairy but ultimately worth every hilarious, sometimes painful and all-consuming moment.

Great movie, great party and a great event to raise cash for PFLAG — which is $500 richer from an impromptu auctionioning of a gift bag prior to the screening, sweetened by a promise that McCullouch would date the winner. “He's hung!” Guarino shouted, driving the price higher.

Mom would be proud.

Is Ariana Grande A Gay Icon? Comments (0)

Three days ago, Billboard published a piece arguing, with eight sensible points to support the claim, 6a0120a90ac194970b01b8d0c62101970c that Ariana Grande is the gay icon of her generation.

Casting aside arguments about what constitutes her generation (like, is Lady Gaga really of a previous generation?), and whether there is only one per generation, do you think this is accurate?

I have nothing bad to say about her, and she is definitely pro-gay, but I don't think of Ariana specifically in these terms. I'm not sure if there IS a gay icon anymore, so much as there are icons who gays love (of which Ariana is surely one).

Like, Judy, Donna, Madonna, these are people who were and are adored by (many, not all) gay people for their talents but also for their specifically gay appeal. I'm not sure many if any new stars these days have that — maybe the latest I can think of would be Gaga, who has spoken directly and specifically to and about gay people.

Am I wrong?

Greyson Chance Comes Out: I AM HAPPY, I AM HERE FOR YOU, AND I AM PROUD OF WHO I AM Comments (0)

Greyson-Chance-New-Picture-2014-23(Image via Greyson Chance)

Greyson Chance, who performed the second best version of Lady Gaga's “Paparazzi” of all time (Gaga's was the best — still my favorite of her songs) and shot to viral fame in 2010, has come out as gay.

Even though he's just 19, he wrote — in an articulate, expressive Facebook post — his coming out was “most definitely overdue.”

Chance wrote:

I came to fully recognize that I was gay when I was sixteen. I decided not to publicize my sexuality largely due to a matter of privacy, as I was still trying to find comfort and confidence within my own skin. Further, I always found conversations regarding music, politics, art, books — and the greatness of Nas' catalog — to be far more interesting than what type of guy I was into.

He went on to write:

... it took years to write this message. Nevertheless, I figured now was the time to let a few more friends know that I am happy, I am here fo ryou, and I am proud of who I am.

I covered Greyson when he was first becoming famous, which was spurred on by his signing by out role model Ellen DeGeneres, and he was always a sweetheart. It's great to read that he is out and proud.

Congrats, Greyson!
