Uzo Aduba opens up to The Advocate for its A-List Interview, in which she says of gay-fan encounters:
Oh, it’s intense. It’s always big, which is great because I feel like I’m big. They’re loyalists, so welcoming and loving, and they’re open to everyone and everything. They empower me, frankly. For better or worse, long days or short, I know I have that support, and I truly feel grateful.
She says of her Orange Is the New Black character, Suzanne, that she isn't necessarily a lesbian:
I just see her as someone who wants to give and receive love, and she’s not that concerned with the package in which that love comes. I don’t think sexual orientation enters her mind. She’s just looking for her soul mate and heart partner.

For me, it would probably be the Korean Evita or Jeff Stryker's “Pop You in Your Pooper” or maybe anything by Adam Rickitt. But a close fourth would be all those gay-targeted HiNRG compilations that came out in the '90s.
Luckily, Centaur Music still puts out compilations like that. Case in point: Workout Vol. 5, mixed by DJ David B.
So give it up:

When I was in magazine publishing, I had to write entire tribute issues to Princess Diana (sold over a million copies; I made $800 as a bonus only, because I was salaried) and JFK Jr. When Michael Jackson died, my boss decided not to do one because it would be distasteful, a decision he soon regretted when he realized every thrown-together tribute was making scads of cash.
Every time someone really, really famous dies, to this day I think, Man, we would've done a tribute to them.
Prince tributes are already clogging the newsstands, but Billboard, one of the most appropriate sources, is now out with theirs.
Inside, Tom Carson dubs Prince the greatest artist of his generation, Claire Hoffman chronicles his flip-flopping views on sex and homosexuality thanks to his devotion as a Jehovah's Witness, Sheila E. opens up about her ex-lover and longtime friend and Prince's final concert's set list is devoured in detail.
Sadly, it's looking more and more likely that Prince had a long drug addiction. Media reports are also ramping up that he was struggling with AIDS—not just HIV—due to refusing medication in favor of seeking a cure from God. What a devastating black mark on his overall legacy if it turns out the man refused treatment for HIV, when he could have lived with it for decades more rather than dying at 57.
