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 … Chris Colfer. Wrapping up our week with Chris, after the tears and emotion of last night, we need a pick-me-up. Here’s Chris guest starring on Bitter Party Of Five, with his Glee stepmom Romy Rosemont

And now we have the 50 GREATEST LOST HITS OF THE 90’S! I’ve often ragged on the pop music of the 90’s for being an arid desert devoid of fun, but there were bright spots, including these 50 songs, which should have performed better on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Like The 100 Greatest Lost Hits Of The 80’s countdown, this list is very female-centric (what can I say, I like rock chicks), but hopefully, some of these pop gems may trigger a long dormant memory.

At #22 is … “Beautiful Goodbye” by Amanda Marshall. The second song from Amanda’s stellar debut album on the list, it was a big hit in Canada, but didn’t even crack the Billboard Hot 100. I just don’t get it.
