Russian pole vaulter Yelena Isinbayeva: My anti-gay comments have been ‘misunderstood’. Translation: “I’ve got to backtrack at Olympian speed”

Is The Question ’Are You Gay?’ Offensive?

The government has declassified Area 51, and CLAIMS that it was used to test fighter planes, not hold alien ships or bodies. Yeah, tell that to Quark and Rom.

Here’s Thomas Roberts talking about the RNC Chair congratulating him on his nuptials.

Here’s the latest Where The Bears Are.

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 … Michael Urie. Wrapping up our week with Michael, last years he returned to TV in the ill-fated CBS sitcom Partners. Here’s an extended trailer to refresh your memory.

Now, presenting … THE TOP 40 HORROR FILMS OF THE 80’S! Journey with me back to the birth of the Dead Teenager movie (actually, that began in the 70’s, so I guess it would be the Afterbirth Of The Dead Teenager Movie), the last gasps of the Italian Horror Masters, and the franchises that still continue today. Yes, your Freddy, Jason, and Chucky will be represented, but I’m also going to pay tribute to the obscurities that deserve to be seen. At #8 is … Sleepaway Camp.

What the F*ckety-F*ck?

That’s the only way to describe this batshit teen camp slasher. Poor Angela is not having a good time at sleepaway camp. She’s constantly being picked on, and what’s odd is that the people who torment her keep turning up dead. That’s really … all I can say without revealing too much. But I want to give special attention to Aunt Martha, (played by the faboo Desiree Gould) who walked in from a completely different film (a film I would love to see, BTW), and stole both scenes she was in.

In the Broadway version, Aunt Martha will be played by John Cameron Mitchell (if Desiree is not available). Below you can see Desiree (looking great 30 years after the film), cooking chicken and talking about the film on Joe Zaso’s Cafe Himbo.
