Gay Hollywood?

I was in the grocery story yesterday buying my seasonal low fat eggnog when I noticed in the check out aisle, right across from the candy, yet another tabloid magazine with the headline, ‘Who’s Gay in Hollywood.”

Of course, I picked it up faster than you can say John Travolta. But still, I wondered, while closely inspected the surveillance photo of Travolta lip kissing another man on the steps of an airplane – WHY do we care so much?!? Why are we -gay and straight – so obsessed with the closet and which celebrity is hiding there? Why? Are we pathetic and in need of a life, as would common wisdom suggest, or does this curiosity tell us something deeper or more profound about the human condition in 21st century America?

Any ideas…



McGreevy’s Tell All: A boastful, passionate, whispering, masculine kind of love

GREAT first person in this week’s New York magazine by former New Jersey Governor James McGreevey. Entitled “The Making of A Gay American,” this essay details McGreevy’s relationship with a former aid that undid his political career and – ironically – led him to embrace his true self (albeit to the expense of his his wife and newborn child).

Money Quote: “I pulled him to the bed and we made love like I’d always dreamed: a boastful, passionate, whispering, masculine kind of love.”

Check it out here.



More Gay Books

Continuing a recent trend in tell all books about coming out (remember Mary Cheney’s NOW IT’S MY TURN), there are two such books coming your way just in time for the fall holiday season.

1. THE TRUTH COMES OUT by Nancy Heche

Nancy Heche, mom to none other than Anne Heche, has penned a tell all about her troubled life including the death of her gay husband to AIDS in 1983, the death of three of her children, and yes, Anne’s ill fated love affair with Ellen.

Nancy has been making the press rounds on such right wing, Christian themed shows as THE 700 CLUB and THE O’REILLY FACTOR, talking about how her faith in Jesus got her through the hard times. (Regardless of how you feel about her religion, nobody could deny the fact that Nancy has faced extreme tragedy in her life).

A vocal spokesperson for Exxodus, Nancy Heche has been surprisingly kind and unjudgemental of Ellen and Anne’s relationship. On THE O’REILLY FACTOR, she even went so far as to almost apologize for how she treated Ellen and Anne.

O’REILLY: Now your daughter, Anne, she’s an actress in Hollywood. She gives you a call. She’s in love with Ellen DeGeneres. You didn’t take that very well.

HECHE: I didn’t. And honestly, that’s one of the reasons I wrote the book, because I didn’t do it very well. I learned the hard way. They did not deserve the tough stuff that I gave back to them. They were kind to me, generous to me.

2. THE CONFESSION by James E. McGreevey

The former New Jersey Gov. who announced his homosexuality and resignation in the same speech on Aug. 12, 2004, declaring that he had been involved in an affair with a man, has written a tell all about his two failed marriages, his rise and fall from political power and yes, coming out as gay before a national audience.

McGreevey is scheduled to kick off his book tour on Sept. 19 on The Oprah Winfrey Show. The show includes a segement on the Union County home McGreevey shares with his partner, Australian financial adviser Mark O’Donnell.

Yahoo! Avatars

This is my Avatar from Yahoo. It comes custom with any email account. What I like about it is that it brilliantly integrates the Web experience with advertising. As if playing with paper dolls, you can change your avatar’s identity as often as you like. Hair, eyes, skin color, dress, background and props are available in endless options. It’s fun and many of the props are “branded,” thereby serving as product placement for the company and fun and interactive for the user.
