Caitlyn Jenner Is Officially Someone The LGBTQ Community Should SHUN After Latest Slam On Liberals Comments (0)

Speaking to a group of Republicans in Virginia, Caitlyn Jenner — a self-appointed trans activist who has lived a most unique life of privilege and remains a Republican stalwart — joked that liberals aren't very good shots in reference to the shooting of Rep. Scalise by a Bernie Bro.

So instead of being happy the guy didn't die, she's using the shooting as an opportunity to make light of gun violence, and to suggest being against guns makes you weak.

No one should shoot Caitlyn Jenner — and that includes photographers. She should never be mocked for being trans, but she also should be a pariah among liberals. She is doing nothing but damage at this point, and is consorting with people who think of her as a dude in a dress — and, more importantly, who are voting to keep rights away from trans people who are not mega-rich.

RuPaul is the covergirl of Entertainment Weekly's June 23, 2017, LGBTQ Issue.

Of the dark period where Ru spent eight years out of character, he says:

I thought, “Could it be that this is not meant for me?” It was this horrible existence. One day, my friend Larry Tee called me and said, “Ru, what the f—k are you doing? You are a star. Get your ass back to New York and get your s—t together.” And I did… “I’m going to go back to New York and give those bitches exactly what they want from me.”

The issue also has a reunion of The L Word and talks with Will & Grace creator Max Mutchnick about the show's upcoming revival.

Trans advocate Janet Mock gives a lengthy, revealing interview to People Magazine to promote her new memoir Surpassing Certainty: What My Twenties Taught Me ().

Key quote:

The number one thing is to ensure that they feel safe enough to tell someone their story … It shouldn’t be the responsibility of trans women to disclose to every person that they meet, [that they’re transgender] whether it’s a romantic partner, friend, roommate or coworker… There’s a misconception that trans women are out there deceiving people. We’re not out there deceiving people. We’re not even trying to pass. We’re just trying to be ourselves in a society that has put us into boxes, and has told us that if we don’t fit in those boxes then we don’t belong and we’re not deserving of happiness, of fulfillment, of contentment. [We need to have] agency over who we tell our stories to and whether we want to tell our stories to someone at all.

Pride Month: Door-Opener Jobriath Comments (0)

My good friend John Cox was a friend of Bruce Wayne Campbell aka Jobriath, 220px-Jobriath_Elektraand his fandom and support for Jobriath's legacy is what drew my attention to this one-of-a-kind rocker.

Born in Pennsylvania, raised in Texas, Bruce was a pianist and musician whose approach to the world did not mix with the army — he went AWOL in the '60s, renaming himself Jobriath Salisbury and moving to L.A.

Shortly after his arrival, he played Woof in the West Coast production of the musical Hair in 1968, leaving to form the band Pidgeon. Pidgeon landed a record deal with Decca, but had limited success. Around this time, Jobriath did jail time for desertion, a miserable period in his life that nonetheless inspired him to write songs. He was supporting himself via hustling while he worked on a demo.

Carly Simon's ex-manager heard Jobriath's demo in Clive Davis's office in 1972 and got him signed as Jobriath Boone to Elektra for a $500,000 advance, making Jobriath the first openly gay person signed to a major record label. David Geffen, Elektra's head at the time, poured money into a marketing campaign for Jobriath that included ads in national magazines and even a Times Square billboard, but an early Euro tour was axed when the costs piled up.

Jobriath's self-titled album debuted to good reviews, although he was often referred to as a Bowie knock-off, but his TV debut on The Midnight Special and gigs in NYC didn't move records — it wasn't selling, a huge problem when so much cash has been (not so judiciously) spilled on your behalf. A quickie follow-up album, Creatures of the Street, tanked harder.

Though Elektra and his management pulled the plug on Jobriath during what would be his final tour, his last show drew raves.

In 1975, Jobriath said he was retired from music and focused on acting, to no avail. Instead, he reinvented himself once more, as Cole Berlin, working as a cabaret singer in NYC, and continuing to turn tricks.

Jobriath died of AIDS on August 4, 1983.

In spite of Jobriath's fearlessness, he is little remembered today; so let's remember him a little this day.
