Speaking of …

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 … Dan Bucatinsky!.

Before he became an EMMY WINNER, Dan wrote, produced, and starred in the 2001 indie film All Over The Guy

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 #41 is … “My Love Is For Real” by Paula Abdul. Paula’s debut album yielded 4 #1 songs, and her second album gave us 2 #1 songs. Her third album? Not so much. The first single struggled to reach #28 in July 1995, and the album tanked. “My Love Is For Real” was to be Paula’s final entry in the Top 40. On the plus side, the video is hot.
