Singer Jared Huff – New Music

jared-huff-singer-the-voice

We LOVE  Jared Huff!

We first met him in Chicago a couple years ago, when he passing through doing some gigs  and  promotions.

A free spirit with a softer side. Jared Huff is the middle ground.  Originally from Indiana, he moved to Chicago and then to Los Angeles as a dreamer on his own trail.

With two catchy new singles online and an EP on the way, he is steadily gaining momentum in the pop music realm.  He’s a playful guy who likes to have some fun, and sometimes fall in love.  These themes are the subject material for both of his new singles “Trouble” and “Boomerang” (which can be found on Itunes/Spotify).

Jared will undoubtedly be one to watch this year as he and his team of LA-based collaborators work together to put on a show!  With choreographer Devin Walker, he creates a show that is high energy and fun to watch!  Sound engineer David Wachs, and  LA-based photographer CJ Armenta Photography have all collaborated with Jared to reach his artistic vision on both of his recent singles.  2016 will see Jared stirring things up in several cities throughout the year… the ‘trouble’ has only just begun!

Sherry Vine QUEER Network

Drag Darling Sherry Vine Launches Queer Network, gaySVTVworld 

The Internet is getting a whole lot gayer!   International drag darling Sherry Vine and former Here-TV executive Josh Rosenzweig are combining their style, humor and sensibility into a one-stop, digital destination for all of the world’s LGBTQ entertainment needs.  gaySVTVworld premieres February 14 with original shows, specials, music videos, short films and more: all free at YouTube.com/MissSherryVine.

“The world needs gaySVTVworld because they are hungry for original programming from top queer talent,” says Sherry Vine.  “We got ‘em all: Haus Of Mimosa, Pickles, David Serrano, Chris Semers … and this is only the beginning.”

“gaySVTVworld is created by and for LGBTQ audiences,” adds Josh Rosenzweig. “Nobody is going to tell our stories like we will. While our visibility has increased enormously over the last decade with the launch of several LGBT television networks, it is essential that the community have an online space to call our own.  A destination where we can go to find like-minded artists and feel the power of the collective.”

While gaySVTVworld draws inspiration from a traditional television model, it also presents a modern digital age spin with all shows under-seven minutes long.  “We’re offering short content so people can view several episodes in the same amount of time as one traditional TV show,” explains Vine.  “Maybe you only have five free minutes on your way to work or during a lunch break.  That’s enough time to catch a hilarious episode of Fashion Puhleez on your smart phone!”

The network will kick off its first season with a slate of eight programs, releasing daily, beginning with Sunday’s Sherry and the Greek, an original talk series starring Vine and Chris Semers, discussing a variety of fun topics and performing skits, characters, and musical numbers.

On Monday, queer notables share their pop culture picks on EduGAYtion.   Then Tuesday, The Rachel Zoe Show meets Project Runway in Fashion Puhleez, with lead players in the beauty industry discussing fashion, club couture and styling.

House of Mimosa presents The Anita & Gina Marie Show, a comedic show that chronicles the daily antics of two women as they cause mayhem throughout Astoria, Queens (singing out – or rather, airing out – all their dirty laundry) gets viewers over hump day.   Then its Throwback Thursdays with Pickles, a look back at a public access show that offers a glimpse into the gay, downtown art and nightlife scene of New York in the nineties.

Celebrate the end of the workweek with The Flames of Hell’s Kitchen, a telanovela about the life of Sherry Vine, her manager Gloria, assistant Busted and sexy Latino boyfriend, Diego.  In the first season, Sherry wins big, loses everything, slips back into a life of drugs, and faces an intervention. The show stars David Serrano, Busted, Patty McKeever and Al McKeever.

Finally, on Saturday, it’s movie night as gaySVTVworld presents The SVTV Short Film Fest, an online festival dedicated to spotlighting the very best LGBTQ filmmakers from around the world.  Each week is a new short film along with interviews from the filmmakers and special bonus features.

In addition, What’s In Your Purse?, a hilarious two-minute segment featuring Vine cornering nightlife celebrities and forcing them to reveal the contents of their bags, will run throughout the week.

“We knew launching a network was an ambitious endeavor but there are so many things we didn’t think of,” admits Vine.  “Josh and I and our amazing team have literally been working every day on gaySVTVworld for almost a year now.”

“So much of that time has been spent on brainstorming ideas, reaching out to people we wanted to work with and deciding on a slate we felt confident about,” continues Rosenzweig.  “We have several shows that are in various stages of development. Our intention is to continue to keep rolling out new programs, music videos and comedy sketches.”

Sherry Vine’s hilarious video parodies have made her a YouTube sensation, being viewed over 14,000,000 times!  She got her start in downtown NYC but today tours the world with her live singing and comedy shows.  Vine has appeared on the off-Broadway stage, in numerous films including Stonewall and Wigstock and she starred in two seasons of Here TV’s variety show, She’s Living For This, produced and directed by Josh Rosenzweig.

Josh Rosenzweig served as SVP of Here TV for ten years where he produced over two hundred hours of television programming including She’s Living For This and Heart of Broadway: An Inside Look at Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. He was also the host of the hit TV talk show Just Josh. Rosenzweig has directed many music videos, award-winning films and over forty productions for the theater.  He has been nominated for two Daytime Emmy Awards.

Joseph Fiennes as Michael Jackson

Joseph-Fiennes-michael-jackson

Joseph Fiennes is cast as Michael Jackson in a TV programme for Sky Arts.  (Sky Arts (formerly known as Artsworld) is an art-oriented television channel offering 24 hours a day of programmes dedicated to arts.  including theatrical performances, movies, documentaries and music (such as opera performances and classical and jazz sessions). The channel is available via Sky, Virgin Media, and TalkTalk TV)

The actor plays the singer in the comedy about a supposed road trip taken by Jackson, Marlon Brando and Elizabeth Taylor after the 9/11 terror attacks.

Some fans have reacted angrily to the casting, but Fiennes said he thought Jackson was “probably closer to my colour than his original colour”. Fiennes said he believed Jackson – who died in 2009 – had a “pigmentation issue” with his skin, so the issue of race should not come into play.  –

I  AGREE.

“It’s a light comedy look. It’s not in any way malicious. It’s actually endearing. And the more I actually looked at Michael – it’s great, as an actor, to have so much to copy and look at in interviews – the more I kind of fell in love with him.”

Describing the plot of the 30-minute programme – titled Elizabeth, Michael and Marlon – Fiennes said: “Michael and two of his best buddies, Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando, happened to be in New York the night before 9/11.

“I don’t know if this is an urban legend or if it’s true, but the three of them couldn’t get out because air space was shut down, so the three of them jumped in a car and went on a road trip.”

Stockard Channing, who is best known for her roles in TV drama The West Wing and musical film Grease, is playing Taylor in the comedy with Scottish actor Brian Cox starring as Brando.

Lowe also tweeted that John said he’d be “writing with Gaga tomorrow.”

Charlie Carvers Comes Out! GAY!

charlie carver gay

Welcome to the team!!

Charlie Carver — best known around our parts for his role as Ethan on “Teen Wolf” — came out to his more than 700,000 Instagram followers yesterday.

In a touching essay, the “TW” twin admitted that while he has spent years growing accustomed to his homosexuality, he has been adamant about keeping his public and private lives separate… until now.

“As a young boy, I knew I wanted to be an actor,” Charlie wrote. “It was around that age that I also knew, however abstractly, that I was different from some of the other boys in my grade. Over time, this abstract ’knowing’ grew and articulated itself through a painful gestation marked by feelings of despair and alienation, ending in a climax of saying three words out loud: ’I am gay.’”

The San Francisco native has played a handful of homosexual characters on television, including half of the deliciously beefy (and often shirtless) twin duo on the MTV series. Not to be confused with Lydia’s love Aiden (RIP), played by Charlie’s twin brother Max, Ethan was openly gay on the show and had a longtime crush on fellow BHHS student Danny. (Remember that steamy motel scene in Season 3? We’ll never forget.)

Now that he has come out publicly, Charlie hopes his admission will serve helpful to other young people who fear their sexuality may someday hold them back.

“Honesty is probably a great step in the right direction,” he wrote. “I now believe that by omitting this part of myself from the record, I am complicit in perpetuating the suffering, fear and shame cast upon so many in the world. So now, let the record show this: I self-identify as gay. As a young man, I needed a young man in Hollywood to say that.”

Gay For Pay NEWS – MURDER

sean cody porn star

David Enrique-Meza. a gay-4-pay porn actor who used the alias “Mario Romo” and worked for the adult movie company Sean Cody is accused of killing gay millionaire Clyde Merendino from Houston and later claiming that he was the sole heir to the victim’s estate.

Maza had been in a lucrative sexual relationship with Merendino since the pair met online in 2013. Meza claimed the Merendino had written a new will — on a hotel notepad — naming Meza the sole heir to his estate.

 

According to a report in The Daily Mail, Merendino and Meza had traveled to Mexico together to move into a $300,000 oceanside condo. Because the condo wasn’t ready, they checked into a hotel.

At 10:30 p.m. on May 1, Meza left the hotel on his motorcycle — a Christmas gift from Merendino — and he was captured on video crossing the border back into the US an hour later. At 1 a.m. on May 2, Merendino told hotel staff he was leaving to help a friend stranded on the road.

Two hours later, Merendino and his Range Rover were found in a ravine. He had dozens of stab wounds to his chest and stomach.

gay houston millionaire

At about 4 a.m., Meza was seen crossing back into the US again, followed 25 minutes later by his girlfriend, Taylor Langston, in a black SUV with no license plates. Meza and Langston then went to the hotel room to steal Merendino’s belongings, including a $15,000 Rolex watch. 

Although he denied killing Merendino, Meza reportedly told authorities he and Langston planned to rob the victim but got cold feet. Meza also admitted that he’d called Merendino and arranged to meet him at the same spot where the victim’s body was found.

Langston, who was pregnant at the time, told authorities she’d traveled to Mexico to visit a friend. But the friend told police he hadn’t seen Langston or Meza in a year, but that Meza had later called and pleaded with him to lie to police.

Meza is charged with interstate or foreign domestic violence resulting in murder, conspiracy to obstruct justice, and making false statements to federal officers. Langston is charged with conspiracy to obstruct justice, obstruction of justice and making false statements.

According to The New York Daily News, Meza faces up to life in prison and is being held without bond. Langston could face decades in prison but will be released if she posts $50,000 bond because she’s nursing the couple’s newborn baby.

GRACE JONES Book

grace-jones-ill-never-write-my-memoirs-book-cover.jpg

Grace Jones slapped my hand in 1982 in Detroit!

I had read about Grace  hobnobbing at Studio 54  in AFTER  DARK Magazine.  I bought her album and fell in love with the  glamorous Diva.

She came to the Detroit area  several times where I had the privilege  of seeing her up close. The first time I saw her perform, I was in the front row.

I held my hand out to her during a song and she slapped it hard!   She was  fierce and presented  a  hard image – but then  at the end, laughed!

I’ll Never Write My Memoirs

Legendary influential performer Grace Jones offers a revealing account of her spectacular career and turbulent life, charting the development of a persona that has made her one of the world’s most recognizable artists.

As a singer, model, and actress—a deluxe triple threat—Grace has consistently been an extreme, challenging presence in the entertainment world since her emergence as an international model in the 1970s. Celebrated for her audacious talent and trailblazing style, Grace became one of the most unforgettable, free-spirited characters to emerge from the historic Studio 54, recording glittering disco classics such as “I Need a Man” and “La Vie en Rose.” Her provocative shows in underground New York nightclubs saw her hailed as a disco queen, gay icon, and gender defying iconoclast.

Grace-Jones1

In 1980, the always ambitious Grace escaped a crowded disco scene to pursue more experimental interests. Her music also broke free, blending house, reggae, and electronica into a timeless hybrid that led to classic hits such as “Pull Up to the Bumper” and “Slave to the Rhythm.” In the memoir she once promised never to write, Grace offers an intimate insight into her evolving style, personal philosophies, and varied career—including her roles in the 1984 fantasy-action film Conan the Destroyer alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger and the James Bond movie A View to a Kill.

Featuring sixteen pages of stunning full-color photographs, many from her own personal archive, I’ll Never Write My Memoirs follows this ageless creative nomad as she rejects her strict religious upbringing in Jamaica; conquers New York, Paris, and the 1980s; answers to no-one; and lives to fight again and again.

Civil Rights Act To Include LGBT Protections

Civil Rights Act To Include LGBT Protections

FINALLY! 

The White House announced on Tuesday its endorsement of legislation that would amend the 1964 Civil Rights Act to ban discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity via The Equality Act.

The Washington Post reports:

Speaking to reporters, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said the administration “has been reviewing for several weeks” the bill. “It is now clear that the administration strongly supports the equality act,” he said, adding it would advance the civil rights of “millions of Americans.”

Earnest added the White House would “work to ensure that the legislative process produces something that balances “the bedrock principles of civil rights with the religious liberty that we hold dear in this country.” Although there is little chance that this Congress will approve the legislation — which was introduced in July by Democratic Sens. Jeff Merkley (Ore.), Tammy Baldwin (Wis.) and Cory Booker (N.J.) — President Obama’s support elevates to greater prominence the question of whether lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans need greater legal safeguards.

And while the majority of the community and its leading organizations support the Equality Act fully, he once LGBT equality grassroots group GetEQUAL led by Heather Cronk and Angela Peoples is asking the LGBT movement to focus on race and transexual issues instead and not support amending the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Log Cabin Republicans Executive Director Gregory T. Angelo also states that his group does not support the legislation.

While as for now as long as the Republican party holds the House and senate hostage it’s little more than a gesture but it does put something on the table and give us something to work towards.
