Brian Sims Calls Out D.G. Yuengling & Son For Pro-Trump Donations Comments (0)

Brian Sims, possibly the sexiest Congress critter ever (and he's gay!), is using his social media reach to put D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc., a brewery, on blast for supporting the odious Trump/Pence ticket.

Using an image of the hard-to-look-at Eric Trump posed with Yeungling's owner, Sims pointed out that money that goes to Yuengling goes to anti-gay politicians, something the businesses in the Gayborhood should consider when deciding whether to continue stocking the brand.

Dick Yuengling went so far as to gush to Eric, “Our guys are behind your father. We need him in there.” 

Fans of the beer did a prolonged spittake on Twitter.

Yuengling is the oldest brewery in the U.S. (Matthew, the teetotaller, has never heard of it), having been founded as Eagle Brewery in 1829. Perhaps, like the GOP, it will achieve its demise thanks to Donald J. Trump.

Back In The Gay: Keith Haring Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-10-25 at 11.11.36 PM(Via still via CBS)

Keith Haring would've been 58 this year. I remember hearing about him while at college and loving his radiant babies, and being fascinated by his sex drive as hinted at in The Andy Warhol Diaries. He seemed a three-dimensional gay person who gave no fucks, and who spit out inspired pop art. There is no telling what he may have accomplished—and it's hard to guess since he had done so much by the time of his death to AIDS at 31 in February 1990.

Win Madonna's autographed shoes, girl!

(Or items featuring Bryan Lourd, Stevie Nicks, Dustin Lance Black, Taylor Swift, Andy Cohen, Anderson Cooper, Cyndi Lauper, George Clooney, Demi Lovato and/or Cher.)

It's all for a good cause—the National Park Foundation, which recently embraced the Stonewall National Monument and needs funds to maintain it.

Madonna's “Papa Don't Preach” is in the news a lot lately, with critics noting Gaga's “Perfect Illusion” echoes it in the chorus and an interviewer's mention of the song to Gaga sending her into a tizz.

Bonus Jam: I Love This! 

Now, find out what happened to the boat you see in the iconic 1986 video. Clue: It has NOT aged as well as Madonna has.

THE ATLANTIC Endorses For Third Time Ever: It's Got To Be Hillary Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-10-05 at 4.55.57 PM(Screengrab of homepage via The Atlantic)

The Atlantic has only ever endorsed in the presidential race three times: Abraham Lincoln, Lyndon B. Johnson ... and now, Hillary Clinton. From the editorial:

We are impressed by many of the qualities of the Democratic Party’s nominee for president, even as we are exasperated by others, but we are mainly concerned with the Republican Party’s nominee, Donald J. Trump, who might be the most ostentatiously unqualified major-party candidate in the 227-year history of the American presidency.

These concerns compel us, for the third time since the magazine’s founding, to endorse a candidate for president. Hillary Rodham Clinton has more than earned, through her service to the country as first lady, as a senator from New York, and as secretary of state, the right to be taken seriously as a White House contender. She has flaws (some legitimately troubling, some exaggerated by her opponents), but she is among the most prepared candidates ever to seek the presidency. We are confident that she understands the role of the United States in the world; we have no doubt that she will apply herself assiduously to the problems confronting this country; and she has demonstrated an aptitude for analysis and hard work.

Fair enough.

The End For NEXT, FRONTIERS, Other Gay Mags Comments (0)

Looks like this is the end for Next Magazine, a staple in gay publishing in NYC for as long as I've been here. (I was bummed when HX disappeared years and years ago, and still sometimes slip and call Next by that name.)

Next is one of the last in a long short tradition of gay publications, stretching back to Bob Mizer's Physique Pictorial and being heavily influenced by such '70s magazines like After Dark and Michael's Thing.

How long will gay print magazines last? 1951 through ... ? Out and The Advocate, as well as Attitude, have had their ups and downs. The death of Next—L.A.'s outstanding Frontiers and other publications are also caught up in this—is just another step toward the end.
