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.

Not-So-Average Joe: Out Author Joe Putignano On Conquering Addiction Comments (0)

OldschoolboxerImage by Matt Barnes

With Acrobaddict (Central Recovery Press, $17.95), Joe Putignano has written the kind of memoir you can't put down, but the kind of memoir that you hope no one else will ever have to write. Now an accomplished Cirque du Soleil performer and model and a hard-working student, he Acrobaddictspent a decade as a heroin addict, enduring all of the things that go along with that sorry state—familial rejection, expulsion from school, forced and unsuccessful rehab, inevitable relapse. His life was a mess, and was in danger of ending badly—and early.

Reading about his struggle is ultimately uplifting—he celebrated seven years of sobriety on March 25—and provides valuable insight into how to pull yourself up from the depths, even when you're sure there is no way out.

Check out my interview with this sweet and uniquely connected (he cares about others, believe me, he cares) individual after the jump...
