ANGELS In North Carolina Comments (0)

AngelsThere are angels on the streets of Charlotte.

People of a certain age will remember how controversial it could be to stage certain plays in certain parts of the country. Actually, Terence McNally's widely misunderstood Corpus Christi ("Gay Jesus?! Gay Jesus?!") was protested in New York City in 1998, so it shouldn't be too surprising to hear that Tony Kushner's Angels in America was a major issue when it was presented in Charlotte, North Carolina, in 1996.

Cover02-1_17When that play debuted in that city, local politicians voted to withdraw all public funding from works of art that offered "exposure to perverted forms of sexuality."

Over the next several years, the people who voted out that financial support were themselves voted out of office, but it's taken 18 years for the play to return, this time in a proposed production by CAST (Carolina Actors Studio).

Angels-in-AmericaThe production could use your $upport in any amount!

Now that it's back, it needs your dollars. Check out its fundraising page and donate generously if you so desire.

Clay Aiken For Congress Comments (0)

Clay-Aiken

Years ago, before he came out, I did not like Mr. Clay Aiken. When I spoke on the phone with him during his Idol days, he was so annoying I'll never forget it! "This [second] season is more about talent," he sneered. Oof.

But over the years, he's really shown himself to be a stand-up guy, and he's always been concerned with people and charitable causes. I think coming out has freed him from whatever defensive tension made him come off as a jerk at times.

Best of luck to him!

Watch his announcement after the jump...

Marriage Equality And Common Sense Going South Comments (6)

With the unfortunate passage of Amendment One by a landslide in North Carolina, a 270px-North_Carolina_in_United_States.svgswing state which was won by President Obama in 2008 mind you, many are demanding that the Democrats move their convention from the state.

First, it's never going to happen. It's set in stone. So why make a demand that can't realistically be met?
