On AIDS and lack of Leadership circa 1991:“No matter what anyone is doing now, it’s not enough,” says Midler. “I have to admit at the moment I’m very disheartened at the lack of leadership.

On AIDS and lack of Leadership circa 1991:“No matter what anyone is doing now, it’s not enough,” says Midler. “I have to admit at the moment I’m very disheartened at the lack of leadership. And I really do blame the White House. As the saying goes, the fish stinks from the head. Who do they care about? Maybe a couple of people in Europe, but certainly not Americans. If Watts went up in flames tomorrow, and everyone died, I don’t think they’d care. Such an incredible lack of humanity and compassion. It’s appalling.” (1991) – Bette Midler Read More

Meet the greatest LGBT icons over 70 years old

Meet the greatest LGBT icons over 70 years old
Bea Mitchell
29th September 2017, 3:20 PM

Here, however, we’re paying homage to some of our favourite gay icons (and allies) over the age of 70. (Not that you’d know they were.)

Cher

71-year-old Cher looks more glam, fit and fabulous than the majority of us ever have. More importantly, however, she’s one of the gay community’s most vocal advocates. As well as playing a lesbian in the film Silkwood, and cameoing in Will & Grace as the idol of gay character Jack McFarland, Cher supported her son Chaz Bono’s gender transition.

Midler on Music In General: “There’s nothing I really don’t like,” she said. “I see value in all kinds of popular music.

Midler on Music In General: “There’s nothing I really don’t like,” she said. “I see value in all kinds of popular music. That’s why it surprises me that people throw their music away. Here we are, Americans, and our pop music is a real treasure. Yet the record-buying public, as a whole, has cast the older music aside. And music has diminished. Modern pop has its moments. It’s not all great, but the swing stuff probably wasn’t all great, either. In hindsight, you tend to dig up the gems and focus on them.” (1991, Chicago Sun Times) – Bette Midler Read More

The 2017 Reeling film festival—the second oldest LGBTQ film fest in the U.S.—unspools Sept. 21 at Music Box Theatre with Hello Again, a sex-fueled all-star screen adaptation of an under-the-radar John LaChiusa musical that follows the erotic escapades of characters with names like The Whore, The College Boy, and The Young Thing. Clearly, Reeling 35 starts off with a satisfying bang—ten actually, since the sensual musical tells the tales of as many love affairs, each set in a different decade. Read More

The most destructive words a boy can hear are, ‘be a man’

Washington Times
The most destructive words a boy can hear are, ‘be a man’
By Suzanne Fields – – Wednesday, July 26, 2017

2017-07-11_4-13-24

Any woman could tell you that a good man is hard to find. Some men don’t measure up to what a woman wants them to be. Some are coarse, profane, mean and other bad things.

But most men are none of those things, and even bad apples in the right hands can become an appetizing applesauce. Besides, as almost any woman would ask, where’s the alternative?

Nevertheless, there’s a growing campaign on the left to denigrate men and something called “toxic masculinity,” cited as a menace to women, to the republic, to mankind, and all the ships at sea. A growing number of colleges and universities, which lately have become a source of a lot of toxic things themselves, are force-feeding young men the radical feminist nonsense that “masculinity” is at the root of everything bad.
