And here’s The Weekly 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 … Ben Daniels.

Ben starred with Laura Linney on Broadway in 2008 in Les Liaisons Dangereuses, and received a Lead Actor Tony nomination.

We’re shifting the focus of the latest Briefs List back to the greatest aspect of 80’s pop culture … the music, which remains the ultimate pop music decade. For this list, we’re going to focus on the ladies, and countdown the The Top 100 Hits Of The Ladies Of the 80’s. There are only two rules: all the songs had to hit the Billboard Top Ten, and they’re all sung by women … whether solo or with a group. Ready to jog your memory?

At #57 is … “Mad About You” by Belinda Carlisle. The second Belinda song on the list, it was her first solo smash, and proved she could go it alone. It peaked at #3 in August 1986
