Chad Allen Retires from Acting

chad alen retires acting

Actor, Producer, Activist, bids his fans farewell as he moves on to a new phase in his career.

With over 60 acting credits and 30 years of acting  to his name, Allen has truly made a mark in Hollywood. Today, the 40-year old tells us that he has come to a crossroad that is leading him down a different path. As Allen closes the door on acting, he will head off on a new adventure.

In typical Chad Allen fashion, he made a final farewell video for his fans wherein he gave special thanks to all those who have supported his work, his charities and his career.  And, because he is just this kind of guy, he also made special recognition of his number one fan and webmaster, Ken Clark, who ran his website for a decade.  At Chad’s request, the website will end in June.

Actor and friend Gary Lane talks to Chad today, HERE.

Cam and Mitch Get Divorced?

cam and mitch divorce

Say it isn’t so!!!  Cam and Mitch from Modern Family will file for divorce this season?!

It was a family affair at Modern Family’s PaleyFest panel on Saturday night, when the writers and cast of the hit ABC comedy gathered at the television festival to share personal stories and anecdotes about the show. And it was apparent that this cast really is like a family, and they don’t actually need writers to be funny.

The Season 5 wedding finale was a personal victory for the writers. Levitan said when they started working on the idea of Mitchell and Cameron getting married, “things were still up in the air politically.” But, he added, “We started breaking the story for the wedding because we thought things would go a certain way in terms of the law for gay people to be married.” Once the gay marriage laws were passed in California, the writers spent a year building up to the ceremony.

Julie Bowen, who plays Claire Dunphy,  talked about the  potential storyline for the next season involving television’s leading gay married couple:

We have a very exciting opening to season 7. Cam and Mitch want to get a divorce and they find that gay divorce is not legal and have to spend the entire season fighting for the rights of gays to divorce. It’s an emotional ending..

 

Is this true??  or  maybe  a joke??

Hate in America

hate-and-homophobia

For more than 30 years, Emmy-winning journalist, documentary filmmaker, and Al Jazeera America anchor Tony Harris has reported on senseless and vicious acts of violence, many fueled by intolerance, fear and hate. In the new one-hour special HATE IN AMERICA, Harris partners with The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a non-profit that has been tracking hate groups across the country since 1971, and NBC News’ award-winning production arm Peacock Productions, to examine the current realities of intolerance in America. According to the SPLC, more than 900 active hate groups currently exist across the United States, from neo-Nazis to anti-government militias, targeting entire classes of people for their race, religion, and sexuality, among other immutable characteristics. Largely propagated by anger and fear over the nation’s ailing economy and the diminishing white majority, that number has been on the rise for over a decade. Traveling to communities torn apart by violence, Harris pulls back the curtain on what drives modern-day hate, and comes face to face with its victims to examine HATE IN AMERICA, premiering on Monday, February 23 at 8/7c only on Investigation Discovery (ID).

 

“Tony Harris’ journey across the country in HATE IN AMERICA is a heart-breaking reminder of the hate that still exists in our country today and, in fact, around the world as we learn of the horrors faced in the recent Sydney hostage situation or the Taliban attack on a Pakistani school,” said Henry Schleiff, Group President of Investigation Discovery, Destination America, American Heroes Channel, Discovery Fit & Health, and Discovery Family Channel. “Despite these setbacks in our pursuit for tolerance, Tony’s fervent investigation in HATE IN AMERICA provides a glimmer of hope that there are undeniable signs of progress, people fighting back, and fighting for our future.”

 

“I remain deeply moved by the willingness of the people I met to share the stories of how their lives have been changed forever by hate and intolerance,” said Harris. “I can’t imagine anyone being unaffected by these powerful testimonials.”

HATE IN AMERICA features the racially charged murder of a black father in Mississippi who died after being beaten and run over; the gruesome mass shooting of a Wisconsin Sikh congregation; and a brutal anti-gay attack on the streets of New York City. As Harris explores the motivations behind hate, he hears from a spectrum of advocates for change, including victims’ loved ones, community leaders, civil rights attorneys, SPLC’s founder Morris Dees, and even a former white supremacist – who now crusades for unity among the races.

Chelsea Handler poses topless with Star of David pasties while riding a camel in Israel!

“A Muslim allowed a topless Jew to sit on his camel,” the outspoken comedian captioned a photo on Instagram Wednesday that shows her riding a camel wearing only Star of David pasties, black slacks and black boots.

The 39-year-old former “Chelsea Lately” host arrived in Israel over the weekend and performed at a fund-raiser in Tel Aviv on Sunday supporting Sheba Medical Center’s Tal Center for Integrative Oncology, according to the Jerusalem Post.

In addition to her benefit comedy gig, Handler also filmed a one-on-one interview with former Israeli President Shimon Peres and paid a visit to Jerusalem.

NETFLIX  will be airing 3  Chelsea specials this year and her new talk show, following her long run on E!, is set to begin in 2016 and will be the first programming of its kind on the Netflix streaming service.

Gay Actor, Activist, Comedian Taylor Negron Passes

taylor-negron gay actor

I saw Taylor Negron back in the 80’s  once perform stand up comedy at a small gay festival. And followed his career over the years on TV and film, and was so excited to see his career grow and flourish.

Negron who played Rodney Dangerfield’s future son-in-law Julio in “Easy Money”, the villainous Milo in “The Last Boy Scout” and Chevy Chase’s traveling companion Fausto in “Nothing But Trouble”, among many other movie roles including the classic Fast Times At Ridgemont High also appeared on over 40 shows of all sorts from “Seinfeld” to “That’s So Raven”. An a accomplished painter as well,  Negron started his performing career as a supermarket clown. A go go boy and Lucille Ball’s assistant.

Cousin Chuck Negron, the former lead singer for 1970s band Three Dog Night, announced his death.

“I want to inform you that my cousin Taylor Negron just passed away,” he said in a YouTube video posted Saturday. “His mother, his brother, Alex, and my brother, Rene, and his wife … were all there with him. May he rest in peace.”

He was remembered by so many this week…Billy Crystal,  Dane Cook  and Ben Stiller  were just a few to send out messages of their condolences.

He was only 57 and had battled cancer for the last several years.

A bright light – gone too soon.

According to the casting notice, Spencer is actually “post-Glee gay —no one messes with him about his sexuality because he will kick their asses if they do.” Williams, who has also modeled, appeared this summer in the Disney TV movie How to Build a Better Boy.

Russell Davies CUCUMBER with Freddie Fox

freddie-fox-cucumber

Fifteen years after Queer As Folk exploded on to the screen, award-winning writer Russell T Davies is back with Cucumber and Banana – two new drama series for Channel 4 and E4 exploring the passions and pitfalls of 21st century gay life. Tofu, a factual web series, is an anarchic online guide to sex inspired by the dramas each week. (Each could come to Showtime).

Cucumber – a series for Channel 4 – follows 46 year old Henry and his long-suffering boyfriend Lance. Life for Henry and Lance is comfortable and settled. But after the most disastrous date night in history – involving a death, a threesome, two police cars and the Glee Christmas Album – Henry’s old life shatters, and his new life begins.

SEXY Cucumber star  and  PRIDE  star  FREDDIE  FOX recently took the ALS  Ice Challenge in his underwear.  WATCH

On E4, Banana  follows the lives of characters orbiting around Henry in Cucumber. From young lesbian Scotty’s first love, to 19 year old Dean’s mysterious family secrets, Banana covers 50 shades of gay, and beyond.

With the same ferocious wit, startling honesty and heartfelt warmth that made Queer As Folk a landmark series, Cucumber and Banana will explore the heartbreak and joy of modern sex lives – from gay to straight, and anything in between.

Tofu, meanwhile, extends the experience online with eight factual episodes navigating the landscape of 21st Century sex in its own inimitable way. Offering real people the chance to share their unique stories of sexual experiences, Tofu is an anarchic and entertaining look at sex.

Russell T Davies says; “I once read about a scientific institute which had studied the male erection. It divided the hard-on into four categories, from soft to hard. One, tofu. Two, peeled banana. Three, banana. And four, cucumber. Right there and then, I knew I had my drama. And it’s a joy to be back with Channel 4 and RED, to tell these stories.”

Patti Labelle and Matt Bomer join Freak Show

American Horror Story is BRILLIANT!  I can not wait until the October release of FREAK SHOW!

Veteran singer Patti LaBelle will appear in four episodes of the FX anthology series from co-creators Murphy and Brad Falchuk. LaBelle will play the mother of Gabourey Sidibe’s character, a townie in 1952 Jupiter, Florida who discover the secrets of Twisty the clown killer. Sadly, the Grammy-winner’s part will only require her to act; no singing will be involved.

Creator Ryan Murphy broke the news  about MATT BOMER, also joining the show, at EW’s Emmy Party saying he’s excited to reunite once again with the “amazing” actor, who is nominated this year for his performance in The Normal Heart, also directed by Murphy.

“I try to get him to do everything for me,” Murphy told EW. “I sent him a text that said, ‘First right of refusal, here’s the role.’ It’s very…warped.” Murphy said he had to work around Bomer’s schedule filming Magic Mike 2 in order to make the appearance work.

Todd Chrisley says TODAY, I AM NOT GAY

todd-chrisley-knows-best-gay-dad-gay-sons
For months, reality star Todd Chrisley has insisted HE IS NOT GAY.

 

“I don’t believe that being gay is something you should be ashamed of,” he said. “I don’t believe it’s something you should hide. And if I wanted to date someone, I would call you and I would ask you go to dinner with me. But right now, I’m very content in my life with where I am. Today, I’m not gay.”

I have known several men, who at a young age desperately wanted a family and could have sex with men, but preferred men.  Does that make them straight?  bi?

I don’t care if Todd is on our team or not. (But he IS GAY!)  – now that son!   WOW! HOT!

Robbie Rogers

GAY SOCCER player Robbie Rogers is the focus of a new gay comedy series.

The story of professional soccer player Robbie Rogers, who became the first openly gay man to compete in a top North American professional sports league, is headed to television.

Universal Television has optioned Rogers’ story rights for Craig Zadan and Neil Meron’s Storyline Entertainment to develop and produce a comedy series inspired by the young athlete’s experiences.

Neil Meron and Craig Zadan – the openly gay producers of the last two Academy Awards telecasts and next year’s as well – will develop and produce the series based on Rogers’ experiences, according to Deadline Hollywood.

 

‘Very excited and fortunate to be working with so many great people on this project!’ Rogers tweeted yesterday.

Rogers, 27, came out publicly in February 2013 through a heartfelt online post published shortly after he retired from professional soccer.

Oprah Puts Michael Sams Project on Hold

EARLIER THIS WEEK, Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network  announced they were to begin The Michael Sam docu-series …but now it  has been put on hold,  and for good reasons. It could be very distracting for Sams.

OWN President Erik Logan said:

“After careful consideration and discussion with the St. Louis Rams, ‘The Untitled Michael Sam Project’ has been postponed, allowing Michael the best opportunity to achieve his dream of making the team.  OWN is about elevating and empowering people to achieve their best.  It’s clear that we, along with the world, recognize the important opportunity that Michael now has in this moment.  We will continue to support him in his journey to earn a spot playing for the Rams.”

Cameron Weiss of Empire Athletes, Michael Sam’s agent, added:

“After today’s meeting with the Rams, we collectively feel it is best to postpone the project.  This will allow for Michael to have a total focus on football, and will ensure no distractions to his teammates.  Everybody involved remains committed to this project and understands its historical importance as well as its positive message.”

HBO LOOKING Episode 1 online now!

Looking‘ offers up the unfiltered experiences of three close friends living — and loving — in modern-day San Francisco. Friendship may bind them, but each is at a markedly different point in his journey: Patrick (Jonathan Groff) is the 29-year-old video game designer getting back into the dating world in the wake of his ex’s engagement; aspiring artist Agustín (Frankie J. Alvarez), 31, is questioning the idea of monogamy amid a move to domesticate with his boyfriend; and the group’s oldest member — longtime waiter Dom (Murray Bartlett), 39 — is facing middle age with romantic and professional dreams still unfulfilled.
The trio’s stories intertwine and unspool dramatically as they search for happiness and intimacy in an age of unparalleled choices — and rights — for gay men. Also important to the ‘Looking’ mix is the progressive, unpredictable, sexually open culture of the Bay Area, with real San Francisco locations serving as a backdrop for the group’s lives. Rounding out the ‘Looking’ world are a bevy of dynamic gay men including Kevin (Russell Tovey), Lynn (Scott Bakula), and Richie (Raul Castillo), as well as a wide-range of supporting characters like Dom’s roommate Doris (Lauren Weedman), Agustín’s boyfriend Frank (O.T. Fagbenle), and Patrick’s co-worker Owen (Andrew Law).

HBO Documentary Film “The Battle of amfAR” Premieres December 2nd

THE BATTLE OF AMFAR (premiering on HBO December 2nd at 9pm ET/PT with a sneak preview on HBO 2 on December 1st – World AIDS Day) tells the true story of when AIDS struck and two very different and extraordinary women – Hollywood icon Elizabeth Taylor and research scientist Dr. Mathilde Krim
– joined forces to take a stand and create America’s first AIDS
research foundation, AmfAR.


Everyone should watch this – especially the younger generation, who need to understand the history of the disease – and the fact, it has NOT went away. There is no cure!

  Their goal: to unveil the truth of the
disease as a worldwide pandemic in desperate need of funding for
scientific research to find a cure. 
Directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman (HBO’s
Sundance award-winning THE CELLULOID CLOSET and Oscar©-winning COMMON
THREADS:  STORIES FROM THE QUILT) and executive produced by fashion
mogul
Kenneth Cole, THE BATTLE OF AMFAR chronicles the organization’s history and continuing importance in the fight against HIV/AIDS.

 

By
tracing the roots of the AIDS pandemic—through the use of new and
archival interviews, news broadcasts, time lapse fluorescence microscopy
and animation—THE BATTLE OF AMFAR educates the viewer on the history of
the stigma of the virus by examining the political and social attitudes
towards those infected since the emergence of the disease.  Rife with
poignant interviews from co-founder Dr. Krim, footage of the late
Elizabeth Taylor, and a myriad of scientists, physicians, gay rights and
AIDS activists, THE BATTLE OF AMFAR not only contextualizes and tracks
the creation of the nation’s first AIDS research foundation, but
explores the contributions amfAR has made in the hunt for a cure for
HIV/AIDS.  Aileen Getty (Elizabeth Taylor’s former daughter-in-law),
Regan Hofmann (former editor-in-chief of POZ Magazine) and Phil
Wilson (Founder and Executive Director of the Black AIDS Institute) all
bring human elements to the film, furthering the narrative that the
story of HIV/AIDS is a human one.  Visit: http://www.thebattleofamfar.com/ for additional information.

Hunting Season GAY TV

This is a must see!

HUNTING
SEASON is a new smash hit comedy series based on the funny and
painfully truthful blog of ALEX, a single gay 20-something in Manhattan,
a smart and successful blogger at Gawker by day, who turns the
spotlight on himself and his friends and starts anonymously writing
about his social life. Based on the wildly popular blog, The Great Cock
Hunt, and the novel of the same title published by Kensington Books.

THE SERIES launched on September 12, 2012 at LogoTV.com with the
UNCENSORED version available for paid download only at huntingseason.tv.

The cast is uber sexy! The show is witty, smart and did I say, sexy?! It has won awards and lots of great press!  It looks and feels like REAL TV! It’s not some web series filmed with a cheap camera in someone’s backyard. Over 100 people worked on season one. IT’S QUALITY. It’s gay and real!

HELP THEM MAKE SEASON 2!
“We
have just launched a Kickstarter campaign to ask for your help in
funding a second season. The creator of the show paid for season one
out of his own pocket, and then took out loans to finish it. The sales
of downloads paid back the loans and proved how big the audience was for
the show. But all the conversations we had with networks and
advertisers did not pan out and we must turn to the fans of the show to
make more episodes.”

IF WE DON’T HIT OUT KICKSTARTER GOAL, THERE WON’T BE A SEASON 2.

Alex and his friends’s stories are just getting started. There is so much more of the world we want to bring you.
