  • Birthday shoutouts go to Daniel Gillies (above), who is 37, Jamie Bell is 27, and Kevin Williamson is 48.
  • NY AG: NFL must act on sexual orientation concern.
  • The documentary Friend Of Essex is being screened around the U.S., and explores the lives of young people of color.

  • Below you can see the first full-length trailer for Hannibal, which premieres on NBC on April 4th.

  • Up in arms about a drag show? Seriously? Thankfully, Dan Savage is there to help out.

  • As The World Turns star Jake Silbermann has started a Kickstarter Campaign for The Revival: “A struggling small town preacher risks losing it all when a young drifter comes to town and challenges the very fabric of who he is.” Jake plays the drifter. This needs to happen, people.

  • And she’s very happy about it. As are we all.

  • Introducing our new feature – The Daily ShoutOUT™. Each week we’re going to focus on one out athlete/performer and feature a daily pic and career timeline. We’ll be showcasing the big names, but also the lesser-known gay celebs who deserve more recognition. This week we give a ShoutOUT to … Guillermo Diaz. After Weeds ended, Guillermo spent a season as gay nurse Angel on the NBC medical drama Mercy, (below), and had a recurring role on the short-lived No Ordinary Family. Tomorrow – Guillermo takes part in a Scandal.

  • The 100 Greatest Lost Hits Of The 80’s countdown may be over, but every Thursday we’re going to travel back again and pay tribute to an 80’s tune that should have been a bigger hit. This week, it’s “I Eat Cannibals” by Total Coelo. Years before The Spice Girls, there was Total Coelo. Back when pop music was still fun, they took Glad Trash bags, day-glo, and the draggiest drag queen makeup, and made magic. The high point was the glorious “I Eat Cannibals,” which peaked at #66 in May, 1983.

  • Continuing the Top 50 Movie Songs Of The 80’s! At #26 is … “There’s No Stoppin’ Us” by Ollie & Jerry, from Breakin’.

  • An unexpected hit when it was released, Breakin was the Citizen Kane of breakdance movies, and gave us one my favorite B movies actresses of the 80’s, Lucinda Dickey. I defy you to watch the tuxedo ripping scene and not be moved. “There’s No Stoppin’ Us” debuted on the chart on June 2nd, 984, and peaked at #9 on August 4th. Tomorrow’s clue – “Silver Cities Rise.”
