RuPaul's Drag Race (2009-)
I appreciate the learning but the training has to go with it. 15-May-2019
Heartbreaking sweetness (Ms. Davenport.) I'd take your footage. No, I wouldn't. Maybe. 15-Mar-2019
Gorgeous pretense. Exactly what I needed. 13-Mar-2019
Finale. Salud. 29-Jun-2018
Reunion. It was about gay pride...the real one. 22-Jun-2018
The girls brought me happiness. 18-Jun-2018
The highlight was watching Ru bring adorableness to her drag. 26-May-2018
Good taste in body parts, great camaraderie between the girls and the showdown was built for the audience to stand as the girls bow. 22-May-2018
It was everything the last all-stars forgot this show was about. 27-Apr-2018
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
Blume In Love (1973)
A man thinks he can redeem his indiscretions by realizing his wife is the love of his life. The women keep it real, the story never flinches and George Segal keeps it nervously serial. The outcome is so fucked up it loses its purpose. 14-May-2019
Unexpected thoughtfulness. 08-May-2019
I no longer have Buffy but I still have you. The last two episodes wrung every artistic sentiment my mind could withstand. Thank you. 06-Apr-2019
The company allowed the schmuck in me to celebrate Christmas. 02-Dec-2018
The daddy (Bassett and Hines included) heroics are inventive, the pulse quickens with current thinking and our hearts get pulled. 25-Oct-2018
A great action piece can energize an attention span but plugging the acting talent to words that allow them to emote beautifully is sublime. 12-Mar-2018
We're in dire need of heroes to save us and Murphy's latest gift is ready to give them to us. Connie Britton and Peter Krause have returned to dominant form, Angela Bassett is having fun and Oliver Stark is a fragile delicacy. The stunts wallop, the words are thoughtful and inclusive and Ryan and crew are experimental ninjas. 16-Jan-2018
Ben Is Back (2018)
A Mother's Day Celebration card. Roberts is luminous lending artistic strength to a mother's compassion and struggle to save her addicted son. Her heart is her valor. Lucas Hedges adds fatigue to the privileged son who defies the comfort his family provides. He suddenly awakes to redemption while implicating everything he cared about. 05-May-2019
Morgan, The Pirate (1960)
Spanish history, slave trade, pirates, wenches and ship wars. Plenty of action and debauchery for short attention spans and Steve Reeves exposes body beautiful to keep the eyes fixed. 20-Apr-2019
Anti-gay GOP ex-congressman Aaron Schock photographed making out with another man at Coachella
The GOP ex-congressman whose sexuality was DC’s worst-kept secret has been spotted making out with another man at Coachella. Former Representative Aaron Schock who made a splash in the nation’s capital with his clothing choices, Instagram photos, and interior decorating choices, resigned after being accused of illegally using campaign funds to finance his over-the-top lifestyle.
Schock was a reliably anti-gay vote for Republicans, despite the parade of young men who visited his DC apartment, and his outing by journalist Itay Hod in 2014. Hod claimed he had walked in on his male roommate and Schock showering together.
But the former Congressman is back on social media after moving to West Hollywood where’s he’s been spotted doing some of the most stereotypical gay things possible – hanging out in gay bars, posing shirtless with gay fitness junkies, and enjoying quiet dinners with other men.
Public health emergency declared amid Brooklyn measles outbreak
Mayor de Blasio on Tuesday declared a public health emergency in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn to stem an outbreak of measles.
As part of the emergency order, unvaccinated individuals living in selected ZIP codes in the heavily Orthodox Jewish community who may have been exposed to measles will be required to receive the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine to help curtail the ongoing outbreak.
“We don’t take these steps lightly,” de Blasio said of the mandatory edict to get vaccinated. “It’s time to protect your family and your community.”
Those who have not received the measles vaccine — or do not have evidence of immunity — could be slapped with a violation and fined $1,000.
Love, Death & Robots (2019)
It doesn't allow you much prep time. It dives right into the action (with mixed results) but the eye is warped to the land of innovative technical wizardry and it magnetizes. 26-Mar-2019
Sally Field and Gay Son Sam Greisman Come Out for Equality Act
Multiple Academy Award and Emmy winner Sally Field has been a fierce advocate for LGBTQ rights, especially since she spoke publicly about her gay son Sam Greisman at a Human Rights Campaign event in 2012. Now she and Greisman appearing in a video together extolling the virtues of the Equality Act and just why the country needs it.
In a video for HRC, Field and Greisman chat back and forth via a video call about his being gay and how the Equality Act could impact so many American lives if Congress were to pass it.
The legislation, introduced in Congress earlier this month, would amend federal law to provide a wide range of protections against discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. It would ban discrimination not only in employment but in housing, credit, public accommodations, education, federal financial assistance, and federal jury service.
Will & Grace (2017-)
Snide and sweet. 13-Mar-2019
Exposing our weaknesses will force our strength to come out. Good job. 02-Dec-2018
The waitress killed it, the drag punched it and Grace/father/writers greatly punctuated "me too." Joy. 05-Nov-2018
Each actor hit an old note and the quickfire delivery allowed us to laugh with them. Tacky looks good on us. 08-Oct-2018
The teen girls deserve a sequel and Debra Messing got in touch with the Grace we all know and love. 12-Mar-2018
Allow them to grow up in character and we might never leave. 06-Nov-2017
There were times that Mullaly's Karen and Hayes' Jack were teetering on caricatures of themselves but all gets forgiven when we heave our first laugh. The politics are sharp, the hard work is evident and our love is unwavering. Welcome Back. 01-Oct-2017
Before Night Falls (2000)
A writer depicting the beauty of life is impaired from enjoying it due to oppressive politics and human tragedy. Schnabel practices skittishly and misses cultural opportunities but punches the story forward. Except for Depp's drag, the cameos resist the film's realism. Antonio is gay function, survivalist and poetically melodious. He sells it...and Martinez doesn't hurt. 09-Mar-2019
Leaving Neverland (2019)
Art should never trump an act of inhumanity. The family poured what's left of their hearts and it reverberated. 09-Mar-2019
My best friend for life exited mine (15 years ago) because she couldn't distinguish between Michael Jackson's pederast and my gay. To her, it was one and the same. I argued the difference and reiterated that I was a twink devoted to daddies but she couldn't deem me a viable role model for her children whom I rarely ever saw. It's a mother's prerogative to protect her children and for me to move on.
I was being compared to my hero but in his worst light. MJ ruined innocence and the beauty of mentoring kids because fandom is support for the man's inclinations. He insults me.
I was one of these kids who kept believing in magic even while it burned. 04-Mar-2019
One Day at a Time (2017-)
All about relationships. Gracias. 03-Mar-2019
Motivating argument about the rules modern life coerces. Proficiently displayed, adoringly regarded and stamping the sitcom with the purpose TV forgot. 13-Feb-2019
Justina Machado is excellent and Rita Moreno embodies everything we miss about a Golden Girl. They've added superior daddy squish and the support is amiable reinforcement. Cheers. 01-Mar-2018
At first glance, you are inclined to think that this is an exploitation of a classic and respected series with token latino stereotypes. By the fourth episode you realize that it chose this community to depict because it needs updating the most and it feeds right into the original's claim. It's hard raising a latin family when the men are scarce and the women try to empower themselves at the cost of tradition. There are times you will be transported to all those arguments Lear presented between classic characters, fair to each but being persistent that the last word goes to the changing present. Justina Machado plays Penelope Alvarez with the same amount as distraught, parental overprotection and survivor's challenge that Bonnie Franklin's Ann Romano did. Rita Moreno's accent is old fashioned pastiche but she is a full character, beloved and is having a helluva time making us laugh. The kids aspire for realness instead of cute and Schneider is cute without the creep. 30-Jan-2017
Boy Erased (2018)
Respectfully tempered and accurate, miscast, minor provocation and out of range. I can hear the subject but I don't feel it. It needed to inform as well as wrench.
Nic exuded art but was limited by the character's sketch. 25-Feb-2019
Walking Dead, The (2010-)
The Governor capped villainy, the creators refuse to scientifically explain or move beyond its gloomy existence and another season of Negan smirks is off-putting. I'm quitting because it has no end and they are killing the future of zombie inspiration by hogging and pummeling us with it. 21-Feb-2019
Oops, I thought the show was evolving. 29-Nov-2018
Sometimes it's hard to see past the corn fields. 12-Nov-2018
They gambled 7 minutes too long. The alpha phased out. 05-Nov-2018
The most staggering surprises arise after sobering us for heartbreak. It was poetry. 11-Dec-2017
It ended to satiate the fans, bathed from blood of a cliched and predictable heart plus a curtain close. 03-Apr-2017
This is the 3rd time that Jeffery Dean Morgan has invaded a series at its vertex. I was always waiting for the grand manifestation of the buildup and all we got was a daddy with lots of fuckability, a frozen smirk that unnerves and trite villainy. Do over. 11-Nov-2016
Mature grit. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to interpret as we wish. 09-Nov-2016
