The Usual Suspect: Bryan Singer's 15-Year-Old Allegations Comments (0)

Js_ColtonHaynesBryanSingerMattMorrisonGuestColton Haynes, Bryan Singer & Matthew Morrison

X-Men (or perhaps more to the point, Apt Pupil) director Bryan Singer has been sued for sexually molesting a 15-year-old in the late '90s. The suit alleges that Singer coerced the minor by plying him with alcohol and promising him a movie role, going so far as to talk about a group that controls Hollywood. Oral sex allegedly happened both ways.

People will probably be inclined to blow this off since the accuser waited 15 years, wants money and timed his suit to coincide with the premiere of Singer's latest X-Men installment.

Or, they will be included to believe it just because anything dirty regarding out celebrities must be true.

Both knee-jerk reactions would be a mistake.

Hey, You Girls!: Celebrating J.Lo & Laverne Cox @ The 25th Annual GLAAD Media Awards Comments (0)

IMG_4819 Rita MorenoRita's company was electric!

J.Lo-GLAADI had fun at The 25th Annual GLAAD Media Awards at the Beverly Hilton on Saturday, even though it feels like covering the show is becoming more and more of a crapshoot as far as which stars I'll actually get. I remember the days when Cynthia Nixon and Sigourney Weaver were speaking with every single outlet at one of these things; increasingly, the A-listers bypass all but the broadest media (skipping even Logo, the biggest gay media there, in some cases).

I arrived kinda late and was disappointed to discover my spot on the (indoor) carpet was in a hallway, so I'd be pressed against a wall as stars passed from photographers and TV media to large online and lesser online outlets. In all honesty, it worked out okay, in that no one was breathing down my neck, and any of the stars who didn't stop for me wouldn't have stopped for me no matter where I was.

He'd just been injured at an event a few days earlier, so a number of the attendees were inquiring as to his health. Glad he seems to have survived with his sense of humor intact—he laughed at everything I said!

Here's his take on the same evening.

I Fucking Love RuPaul* Comments (0)

RuPaul

RuPaul's Drag Race and Logo (not RuPaul himself) have apologized for offending some trans people with the use of the popular catchphrase “You've got she-mail!” and  have dropped an episode deemed offensive to some transsexuals.

Cue scornful reactions from trans activists angry with the show, who feel it was little more than lip service, and cue scornful reactions from—I would guess—the vast majority of the (primarily) gay men who watch RDR and who are responding along the lines of “lighten up,” or, as Madonna passive-aggressively responded to her “nigga” scandal, by making reference to the “word police.”

 

I have a problem with both reactions; this isn't black-and-white any more than issues of gender identity are for many people.

MolloyFirst, while Parker Marie Molloy's “I fucking hate RuPaul” tweet that predates the show's decision to cease and desist with the trans verbiage was, in my opinion, fairly criticized as unprofessional over her simultaneous reporting for The Advocate (a once and occasionally still journalistically admirable publication that nevertheless once branded Madonna its “Sissy of the Year” ahead of virulently homophobic villains all because she'd clarified that she wasn't a lesbian), there's no accounting for personal taste, so if anyone wants to fucking hate on RuPaul for whatever reason, I get it.

Exchanging Of The Vanguard: Jennifer Lopez Honored By GLAAD Comments (0)

Jennifer-Lopez-GLAAD

At The 25th Annual GLAAD Media Awards last night at the Beverly Hilton in L.A., the legendary—and still hot in her eighties!—Rita Moreno made a strong case for Jennifer Lopez as a deserving recipient of GLAAD's coveted Vanguard Award, praising Lopez for the LGBT-inclusive series she produces, The Fosters:

“She's a phenom. Jennifer knew she'd catch shit from anti-gay haters—and she did, before they had even shot a frame, she got all that. But she didn't care. Because in its boldness, bravery and entertainment factor, The Fosters has Jennifer's touch all over it. Everything! Everything this woman touches is golden. Cojno! [Putting on accent] I could keel her.”

In accepting the award, Lopez said:

“I have to give it up for my lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender fans becausethey be loyal...Finally, I really want to thank GLAAD for all of the important, daring, powerful work that you do, not only in mainstream media, but in Spanish-language media too. You all need to know that GLAAD is spreading the message of love and acceptance in English and en Espanol. El amor es el amor.”

I know a lot of gay people who sniff at GLAAD, and to be fair, there is a lot to poke fun at. But whenever I attend these events, I have to say the B.S. is very easy to see through, and what I wind up focusing on is the good that GLAAD accomplishes, whether it's coaching new-to-the-public-eye gay writers, activists and others on how best to express themselves, or leading the conversation on issues like the NYC St. Patrick's Day parade and the importance of words and yes, of image, in this world. It's certainly understandable that we may disagree with some of GLAAD's tactics, but there is a lot of good being done here.
