Reisner & Weiderpass Throw In The Homosexual Towel: The Out's Going Back In Comments (0)

IMG_7237(Image by Matthew Rettenmund)

Via NewNowNext: Ian Reisner, who with his ex-partner and current business parter Mati Weiderpass hosted that indefensible Ted Cruz glad-handing session that hopefully forever marred their credibility, has announced their NYC gay hotel The Out is going back into the closet.

With his usual tone-deafness, Reisner last year declared:

This has not been a profitable venture. Gays are cheap. They’re frugal; gays are frugal. Let me retract that… gays are entitled. Do you know how challenging it is to make a penny off a gay person? ’I’m gay, I don’t pay cover. I’m gay, where’s my comp drink?'”

Hideous man.

The hotel's lease has been bought by Merchants Hospitality and will change in every conceivable way. Good. It's not worth having a so-called gay hotel if it's enriching in any way two gay Republican quislings.

Gena Rowlands On A WOMAN UNDER THE INFLUENCE Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-07-17 at 12.28.04 AMRowlands answers my question about working with kids. (Image by Matthew Rettenmund)

I was privileged to attend a screening of A Woman Under the Influence (1974) at Metrograph, NYC's fantastic new Lower East Side theater that shows classics and quirky non-classics, after which star Gena Rowlands appeared to answer questions about her greatest role.

Rowlands, 86, won a Golden Globe and was nominated for an Oscar for her incredible performance in the film, in which she plays a mentally unstable wife and mother whose husband (Peter Falk) is touchingly in love with her quirks and disturbingly unprepared to handle them. The cast is rounded out by non-actors (her real mom, who lived to be 95, played her character's hapless mother in the film) who somehow hold their own against Rowlands' tour-de-force portrayal.

The crowd was young, period. I felt like the missing link between Gena's generation and the one seated around me. A nearby restaurant was so hipster it was a self-parody, offering organic eats and featuring a chef in a Bernie T-shirt. When I ordered a Diet Coke, the pale young bearded fellow acting as my server informed me sweetly that he didn't have soft drinks but had a variety of homemade beverages. It was a safe space for your tummy.

Kidding aside, with all the negative impressions of millennials, it was nice to encounter a slew of them with a healthy appreciation for something that came before. The kid next to me informed me he hadn't seen the film in five years, suggesting a rich arthouse catalogue bubbling in his head, and the questions people asked were, to a one, intelligent and unembarrassing. I've never been to a Q&A like this at which at least one or two mortifyingly inappropriate, self-involved, non-question questions aren't asked.

Check out Metrograph.

I captured the Q&A, an edited version of which appears after the jump. In it, Rowlands speaks about the film—which she's only ever seen one time—as well as about her late husband John Cassavettes's artistic approach. My question involved her incredible bond with her character's kids in the film, which also led her to talk a bit about her second most famous role, in Gloria (1980) ...

Big Protest In NYC Over GOP's Anti-LGBTQ/Pro-Gun Platform Comments (0)

From a press release:

Queer Nation, Gays Against Guns, and other allies and LGBTQ groups, will stage a massive demonstration in front of Trump Tower, 725 Fifth Avenue (between 56th and 57th Streets) on Monday, July 18, at 5:00 PM EDT. The protest — “Stop the Hate, Stop the Guns” — takes place on the first night of the Republican convention and targets the Republican Party and Donald Trump, its presumptive nominee.
 
As the convention opens in Cleveland, Queer Nation, gun control and LGBTQ activists and allies will gather in New York to protest the anti-LGBTQ positions and actions of Republican lawmakers — some taken since the June 12th slaying of 49 people during Latin Night at Pulse, an LGBTQ nightclub in Orlando.
 
“The Republican Party, with its horrendous anti-LGBT and racist rhetoric, bears ultimate responsibility for the killings in Orlando,” said Alan Klein, a member of Queer Nation. “The GOP’s blind allegiance to the NRA is responsible for the unrelenting epidemic of gun violence in America — as well as for the gun culture that contributes to police killings of people of color.”

I've been hearing Gays Against Guns is exceedingly well-organized. They've hit the ground running.
