More just like him here!
It must've been the call of the wild, but I came out of hibernation for the BearCity 3 premiere in NYC tonight, held at the SVA Theatre as a gala to benefit PFLAG.
Cast member — and All Male, All Nude director — Gerald McCullouch was the one who invited me, and when Daddy tells you to do something, you do it.
The very funny film about love, lust, parenting and laughter, directed by Doug Langway, stars Kathy Najimy, Daniel Franzese, Stephen Guarino, Chris Salvatore, Joe Conti, Gregory Gunter, Matthew Montelongo, Brian Keane, J. Andrew Mullins, Bruce Howard Seeds, Jay Arseno, Richmond Chandler and many more, but for my money, the MVP is Guarino, one of the funniest people I've ever met.
Also hysterical was the story the warm and fuzzy Gunter told me while praising my blog. He'd already greeted me on impact, and then confessed he'd been sending all these gay links from my blog to a friend on Facebook, only to discover way, way into the process that he was sending it to a straight dude in Canada with the same name. When I asked what the guy said about it eventually, Greg joked, “'Don't ever come to Canada. And I have a boner.'”
After a continuing losing streak that started at the altar, Roger tries to claw out of financial ruin and into the arms of Tyler. But Jay, Ty's hunky Fire Chief partner is not letting that flame blaze. Meanwhile, fireworks explode when Fred's obsessive tinkering on their bear documentary conflicts with Brent's baby prep and the unwavering due date of their new born. Mama Bear Michael faces major challenges and finds that love comes in all colors, shapes and sizes. Join us as we take one final adventure into the woods with the BearCity gang, where romance can sometimes be hairy but ultimately worth every hilarious, sometimes painful and all-consuming moment.
Great movie, great party and a great event to raise cash for PFLAG — which is $500 richer from an impromptu auctionioning of a gift bag prior to the screening, sweetened by a promise that McCullouch would date the winner. “He's hung!” Guarino shouted, driving the price higher.
Mom would be proud.

I stumbled upon this site — having seen one or two of these over the past few years — and died laughing in a cab. Almost every cover is perfect. I want a complete set of art prints.
Died. My cabbie thought I was weeping.
Three days ago, Billboard published a piece arguing, with eight sensible points to support the claim, that Ariana Grande is the gay icon of her generation.
Casting aside arguments about what constitutes her generation (like, is Lady Gaga really of a previous generation?), and whether there is only one per generation, do you think this is accurate?
I have nothing bad to say about her, and she is definitely pro-gay, but I don't think of Ariana specifically in these terms. I'm not sure if there IS a gay icon anymore, so much as there are icons who gays love (of which Ariana is surely one).
Like, Judy, Donna, Madonna, these are people who were and are adored by (many, not all) gay people for their talents but also for their specifically gay appeal. I'm not sure many if any new stars these days have that — maybe the latest I can think of would be Gaga, who has spoken directly and specifically to and about gay people.
Am I wrong?

John Heard, famous to movie fans as the father in the beloved Home Alone movies, died Friday, TMZ reports. He was 72.
TMZ reports Heard's body was discovered in a Palo Alto, California, hotel by housekeeping. Variety reports Heard was recovering there from back surgery. Police were called, but the Santa Clara Medical Examiner's office confirmed he was pronounced dead at the scene. The cause of death is not known at this time.
Heard appeared in many of the biggest and some of the most acclaimed movies of the '80s and '90s, usually as a supporting player, including: After Hours (1985), The Trip to Bountiful (1985), Beaches (1988), Big (1988), Awakenings (1990) and both Home Alone movies (1990 & 1992).
He was married and divorced three times, including a six-day union with Margot Kidder. He has two surviving children, one of whom with Oscar winner Melissa Leo. Some real nastiness, including police charges, surrounding his relationship with Leo, but RIP to all that.
