Zachary Quinto, Charlie Carver and Robin de Jesús visited Tamron Hall — Tamron is killing it with her show, BTW — to talk about some of big changes for LGBTQ people since the time that the play on which their new Netflix movie The Boys in the Band was written:

Ben Platt is now officially out. No, he wasn't out before. You're not out until you affirm you're gay, and you're not out when you say you were never really in. So ... Ben is out!
And he's marking the occasion by releasing his new song “Ease My Mind,” which comes with a romantic video co-starring Charlie Carver ...
I stepped out to the Bureau of General Services - Queer Division in NYC to watch Trophy Boy for the second time. The sharply written and observed short film, featuring impressive performances by director Emrhys Cooper and writer Anthony Johnston, definitely leaves one wanting more.
Luckily, Cooper and co-star Donal Brophy announced at the screening that the project had been sold for a series! More on that once details are released, but they've already sketched out a Season 1.

Father's Day wouldn't be Father's Day without another installment of Broadway Bares, the annual burlesque event founded by the great Jerry Mitchell to raise cash for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

Even though I'm old enough to be the dad of a large percentage of the dancers, I suppose I can look at them as “zaddies,” or just use the millennial “dad” for anyone hot, regardless of whether they're 18 or 80. (They're usually not 80.)
This year's show, Broadway Bares: Game Night, riffed on a theme of classic games — sometimes board (Clue, Battleship), never boring — on its way to raising a whopping $1,875,090 at two standing-room-only performances at the Hammerstein Ballroom. The event was all fun and games, but left out the childhood favorite Risk in favor of encouraging audience members to instead play it safe sexually.
Less a game of chance than a game of dance, Game Night was packed with players, strokes of luck, and oodles of team effort.
It all paid off with a series of performances as successful artistically as they were financially — and all for a good cause ...

It took The Boys in the Band 50 years to get to Broadway, and it took me nearly as long to get into the pre-opening after-party ... but I did.
I impulsively bought one of the last tickets for Wednesday's 7 p.m. performance (I had already seen the first preview April 30), scoring one with an empty seat on one side of me and two empty seats on the other. (There were only seven empty seats in the house; not surprising since the show's official opening night is tonight, which is probably the night fans targeted, thinking it would be the star-studded choice.)
