POSE Renewed For Season 2 Comments (0)

Pose has been renewed for a second season on FX!

Any quibbles I had early on (Dominique Jackson's act-ting ... the relative lack of people with HIV ... some of the Friends-sized apartments ...) have mostly resolved and I now find it to be pretty satisfying to watch every week. I think Billy Porter just had an Emmy episode, and MJ Rodriguez carries things beautifully, while it's Indya Moore who I can't resist.

Are you into it?

UK Black Pride's Lady Phyll Tells It Like It Is, And Like It Needs To Be Told Comments (0)

Unnamed(All images via GT)

Lady Phyll speaks with GT about the founding of UK Black Pride, which has been around since 2005, saying:

In founding UK Black Pride, you'll have to really understand and recognize that this is more about a collective, a group of people. You know, the reason I always put co-founder is because the 'co' is about our community. The community founded this.

She grabs one of the July covers, and has much more to say inside ...

Above: I liked the above reveal for RDR's Season 10 winner β€” and I think that while the best woman won, there were several others who were worthier than past winners! Kameron's note is truly gracious. I'm bummed I didn't make the cut to cover the NYC viewing party, but c'est la vie. I've only been at all of them since Season 1. Gives me some free time rather than having to edit photos, I guess.

Love In The Age Of Trump: 2018 NYC Gay Pride March Comments (0)

IMG_0552_newI set up this shot of the Top 4 Season 10 RDR girls β€” #pride (All images by Matthew Rettenmund)

The 2018 NYC Gay Pride March was exhausting as hell, but I made it out alive and with some great pictures I'm happy to share, as always.

Follow Me on Instagram HERE!

IMG_9876_newHe works out ...

I had to arrive at 10:30 a.m. as part of the amfAR crew, only to find they had no size L shirts β€” and they weren't black this year, but rainbow colors.

Rainbow colors are great, except they show sweat, and it was 88 degrees and partly sunny, gulp. Basically, it was tit-sweat pride for me all the way.

IMG_9721_newKenita Placide was clearly super honored to be a marshal, judging by her smile and her kind words.

IMG_9721_newRepresenting Lambda Legal
IMG_9721_newI think poor agender advocate Tyler Ford was sick, but the them editor gave me a quick pic anyway.

I immediately began weaving throughout the streets in Chelsea (new route this year) in search of celebs and other fun photo subjects. Just when I was about to give up, I was served Billie Jean King, living legend and one of the march's four grand marshals, the others being Lambda Legal as an entity, trans activist Tyler Ford and OutRight Action International's Caribbean-based advisor/exec director of ECADE, Kenita Placide.

Screen Shot 2018-06-25 at 10.03.58 AMTheir Pride was at a hole 'nother level ...

Feeling better about grabbing the biggest star of the show, I quickly located RuPaul's Drag Race alums Dusty Ray Bottoms, Miz Cracker, and Season 10's Top 4. Everyone looked stunning, especially my favorite, Aquaria, to whom I pantomimed that I love her the most, eliciting a sweet thanks.

IMG_9966_new_newGrindr Tribe: Yes! Yes! Yes!

I was trying to meet up with an actor who might be a match for Boy Culture: The Series, but kept failing. In the meantime, I encountered dreamy Internet personalities Max Emerson & AndrΓ©s Camilo, and then found nirvana with Alexander Wang's Trojan condoms-themed float, whose slogan was PROTECT YOUR WANG. My good friend is obsessed with Wang, and when I texted him a candid of the designer, he texted me back FUCK. YOU. 

GiphyThis model was flawless!

Wang was sweet, posing for me, and was gen in providing the parade's sexiest coterie of rump-shaking go-go men, including one with whom I became embarrassingly obsessed. He worked that crowd shamelessly, and I allowed myself to be worked shamelessly right along with it. I'm a sucker for ... well, in this case, I guess I'm just a sucker.

IMG_0434_newWang's models were beyond beautiful.

The bummer about Wang was that even though I took tons of pics and helped get the attention of a woman he was trying to flag down, I was flatly denied my only request β€” one of the parade shirts they were tossing out. My friend would have loved one, but when I asked the woman she said no as if I'd casually asked her to remove her tampon for me to smoke. Another guy gave me a similarly flat no, and their excuse was the shirts had to be thrown to the crowds, not handed to anyone. Except, of course, all the dancers' friends. Whatever. It was the only uncheerful moment of any Pride day I can remember in years.

IMG_0232_newThese two melted my heart, especially when the one on the left waved her tiny flag for me.
