Do Gay Men Love, Dislike or Feel Indifferent About Taylor Swift?
Instinct Staff | November 12, 2017

Gay men have had their share of female icons in their lives over the course of the past fifty years. Names that come to mind include Barbra Streisand, Cher, Madonna, Bette Midler and more. For my generation, the debate for many years was who did we like more: Britney Spears or Christina Aguilera?

Although those are all still legendary names in the music business, the past couple of years has seen the rise of men in the industry dominating the charts after women like Beyonce, Lady Gaga and more were the ones at the top. Taylor Swift, however,has once again become the diva of the moment and catapulted herself back into the pop stratosphere due to the release of her album Reputation, which is already on track to selling well over a million copies in its first week of release.

Bette Midler sure likes her privacy, and the Divine Miss M is making sure everyone close to her on the Broadway hit “Hello Dolly!” keeps mum — no matter what!

“Bette had the cast of ‘Hello, Dolly!’ sign riders that were essentially nondisclosure agreements,” a confidant confessed to The National ENQUIRER‘s Rob Shuter.

“The cast even has to get permission to post photos to Instagram or tweets from backstage.

“Lots of celebrities have these types of agreements, but no one has ever signed anything as strict as this.“The actors’ union recommended consulting a lawyer before signing.” Read More

What do you remember of the LGBT community‘s response to “Waterfalls” when it first came out?

T-Boz: We did a campaign for Pfizer, and there was a new cocktail out. We did seminars and it was really cool because we let it be known that there was a new drug from this company and it could help HIV/AIDS patients. They would come up to us; they felt like we were their voice. It was such an epidemic at the time, so they just felt like we were speaking for them. Read More

Q.  Is the Bette Midler movie, “The Divine Mr. J,” going to play on TV? J.B.,- Easton, Conn

A. Bette Midler had a very small role in the film, which falls into the category of ridiculous, dirty – mouthed camp, according to those who reviewed the low – budget film. It seems unlikely it will be shown on TV.

Though it arrives nearly 20 years after her debut album, the timing couldn’t be more perfect for a self-titled Idina Menzel release. Menzel’s latest, out Sept. 23, is a declaration of self – of her real self, that is.

“It’s how you pronounce my name,” the Broadway star says during our recent interview about the eponymous title, “idina.,” not-so-subtly alluding to that infamous name botch at the 2014 Academy Awards. Read More

I think I’ve been really lucky because my gay crowd had followed me to the limit and the fact that they are so vocal and so full of joy each time they see me, I think that’s a very infectious energy in the audience at my shows.

“I think I’ve been really lucky because my gay crowd had followed me to the limit and the fact that they are so vocal and so full of joy each time they see me, I think that’s a very infectious energy in the audience at my shows. I think they’re the ones who brought the straight people around and it’s because of them that people get me to such a wonderful degree now.”

5 LGBT things you need to know today, April 21

1. In a new poll, those surveyed say by a 51 percent to 35 percent margin that it’s no longer practical for the Supreme Court to ban same-sex marriages because so many states have legalized them. Close to half of respondents said they have a gay or lesbian family member or close friend who is married to someone of the same sex.

2. Students at a Pennsylvania high school held an “Anti-Gay Day” protest last Thursday, wearing coordinated flannel shirts, writing the words “anti-gay” on their hands and putting Bible verses on LGBT students’ lockers. The protest occurred a day after the school’s Gay-Straight Alliance’s Day of Silence. Read More
