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 … Patrick Breen.

One of Patrick’s most well known roles was as alien Quelleck in 1999’s Galaxy Quest. His death scene was one of the highlights of the film.

We covered the 90’s once before, so let’s try it again … with the 100 Greatest Top Ten Hits By 90’s Female Artists. There are only two rules: They all hit the Billboard Pop Top Ten, and they’re all from solo female artists or groups with female lead vocalists. Sure, you’ll hear the expected “Justify My Love” and “My Heart Will Go On,” but you’ll also hear songs I’m sure you haven’t thought of since the 90’s.

Ay #94 is “Promise Of A New Day” by Paula Abdul. And here we have the first #1 song on the list. It was the leadoff track to Paula’s smash second album Spellbound, and her sixth (and final) chart topper, hitting #1 in September 1991. Remember the controversy about the video? Paula was accused of using camera tricks to make herself appear thinner.
