BELOW: Keep reading for the surprising thing Billy Eichner found in his undies, talk of opening Broadway and WeHo gay bars, Oprah's in-depth chat with GLAAD's Nick Adams about her Elliot Page sit-down and more ...
INSTAGRAM: Billy Eichner's undergear was invaded by the FBI, and all he got was this lousy patch.
EXTRATV: Bill and Melinda Gates are divorcing, so everyone is making jokes about hitting on one or the other, or saying Melinda looks like Kevin Kline, because people are assholes.
THR: New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says Broadway can open as of May 19. Broadway says: More like the fall.
WEHOVILLE: WeHo's gay bars are itching to open up again, like so many of their patrons' legs. (I wonder how many gay men had less or no sex during lockdown? We'll never know, but it would be interesting to find out.)
