In The OUT Door: OUT Celebrates Its OUT 100 Comments (0)

Thursday night was the Out 100 party, celebrating Out Magazine's issue in which its editors honor 100 influential out figures from all walks, the most famous of which get the cover treatment. (This year, Edie Windsor, Jim Parsons, Lee Daniels and the very recently out Wentworth Miller made the cut.)

1 OUTThe in-crowd with Out.

I'd never been invited to this party before, and kept complaining and being told, "Next year!" Finally, I got the invite, so no way would I miss what Kenneth swears is the year's most fun party.

The venue is conducive to having a fun party with live acts (Debbie Harry was headlining, with Steve Grand, The Dolls and Charli XCX of Icona Pop fame supporting), but not so great for a red carpet. Still, Out did a nice job with a second-floor carpet, my only complaint being that the DJed party music drowned out the interviews somewhat.

I was surrounded by nice people, except for an inconsequential sourpuss who looked about 12 years old who was frowning his way through the night for ET, and being near sane individuals helps loads.

A Sharon-NeedlesSharon Needles: Gay as hay-ull.

The first person down the carpet was Sharon Needles, looking more glam (and alive) than ever. My question for everyone was to describe their best and worst coming-out experiences (see video above), but she said hers had all been good because she'd been "gay as hay-ull" since age 4 and had a supportive family who knew she liked dick. The most X-rated "awww!" ever.

Ladies And Gentlemen, The LATE Mariah Carey! Comments (0)

MARIAH-CAREY

The biggest pair of surprises at last night's "OUT 100" party, honoring Out Magazine's 100 most inspirational LGBT figures, was the appearance of Mariah Carey, who came out (after about a 10-minute pause!) to accept an award on behalf of her buddy/director Lee Daniels.

Jonathan Groff and the cast of the can't-wait-to-see-it HBO series Looking announced her, then had to entertain the crowd by reading her Wikipedia page (!) for several minutes, including full birthdate and Tommy Mottola namecheck. Ouch!

Mariah has taken Madonna's cue, wearing gloves (though hers look like Rubbermaid in my screengrab, I am gonna guess they were satin). She had a great line:

"I'm a straight girl, so I don't really know why they asked me to be here...but my boobs have been out for years!"

It was a brief speech, punctuated by a nobody-listened-to-it heartfelt video speech by Daniels. After she was done, she asked for help getting off the little platform because her arm still had some damage.

The crowd at her up, and Groff referred to her as "the best-selling female artist of all time," which is of course what she demands to be called wherever she goes and which is the nugget around which every one of her press releases is built.

As much of a non-fan as I am, it was exciting to see her in person for the first time, and I give her and Out a lot of credit for such a wonderful surprise.

Full video after the jump...

Zac Efron underwear
I can't tell if I'll like The Paperboy by Precious director Lee Daniels (Precious was my favorite movie the year it came out, though)—it looks really pulpy and overblown. But maybe that will be its charm. I wish Nicole Kidman weren't so plastic...it throws off period pieces.

Zac Efron underwear ass

But the story is intriguing. And if all else fails, it has Zac Efron in soaking wet tightie whities.

With thanks to Jason: Precious director Lee Daniels is bringing a new version of Valley of the Dolls to TV. I can't imagine what the TV execs are snorting to think this concept has legs, but I'm personally excited to see what he cooks up!
