Ru was art deco doll, the girls brought fire and fantastical whimsy to drag and an integrated roster of pretty boy. Christina flashed her gay badge which warranted hope for an artistic comeback that only a supreme deserves. I'm excited. 23-Mar-2018

Desi Arnaz: A Pioneer of the Television Sitcom
Discover how the I Love Lucy star changed TV
Desi Arnaz was a Cuban-born American actor, musician, and TV producer. He is best known for his role as Ricky Ricardo in the cult classic American TV sitcom I Love Lucy. Co-starring alongside his then-wife Lucille Ball, the pair are credited as the inventors of the syndicated rerun as they were more than just actors in the show – they were key in making it into such a success. The show ran from 1951-1957 and spanned six seasons with 180 half-hour episodes in total, which was previously unheard of for a TV show.
Arnaz became part of one of the USA’s most watched shows, but his life wasn’t always glitz and glam, even if it might have seemed that way in the beginning. Born into a prominent Cuban family in Santiago in 1917, Arnaz’s father, Desiderio Arnaz II, was mayor of Santiago, the original capital of Cuba. His mother, Dolores de Acha, was the daughter of one of the founders of the Bacardi Rum Company. If that wasn’t enough of a claim to fame, Arnaz’s grandfather, Don Desiderio, was a physician who accompanied Theodore Roosevelt and the Rough Riders at the Battle of San Juan Hill in 1898.

Gone with the Wind Heads Back to Theaters for Its 80th Anniversary
An all-time classic is making its way back to the big screen.
80 years after its initial release in 1939, Gone with the Wind will screen at participating locations for two days only this year. Fans of the Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh classic can watch the movie at the end of this month on Thursday Feb. 28 and Saturday March 3.
Though the movie remains a classic, modern audiences have received it with mixed views due to its representation of black people. It was most recently pulled from an annual summer movie festival in Memphis after attendees complained about its racial insensitivity.
Instagram just banned longtime gay historian Tom Bianchi, & it’s part of a troubling anti-gay trend
Tom Bianchi is a longtime male erotic photographer and HIV activist whose photographs have helped document gay men’s sexual history on Fire Island and elsewhere. But as of this morning, you won’t be seeing his images on Instagram anymore because the photo-sharing platform recently banned him.
The shot that got Bianchi banned was called “Untitled, 457,” a picture from his collection entitled Fire Island Pines: Polaroids 1975-1983. The shot simply showed a naked man sitting on a bedside with his back to the camera. It showed the top of the man’s buttocks but was otherwise non-obscene. At the point of its deletion, it allegedly had over 5,000 likes.
Bianchi’s banning isn’t necessarily surprising. The Facebook-owned photo-sharing platform has a habit of deleting supposedly risqué homoerotic content, including tasteful pictures of nude athletes, an image of Queer Eye food guy Antoni Porowski in his underwear and even a lovely image of a lesbian couple cuddling in bed with their child.
