Here’s the trailer for Zoombies, which will premiere on Fuse on Friday, May 13th. “When a strange virus quickly spreads through a safari park and turns all the zoo animals undead, those left in the park must stop the creatures before they escape and zombify the whole city.” I am so there.
NYPD takes fresh look at 90’s transgender murders in Harlem. Carl Siciliano, executive director and founder of the Ali Forney Center, an outreach group named after one of the victims, said he isn’t too hopeful for arrests because so much time has passed.
“The NYPD confirmed its Cold Case Squad has been tasked with trying to solve the murders of Dion Webster, Kevin “Kiki” Freeman and Ali Forney. Webster, who identified as a woman, was 21 when she was stabbed in the head in East Harlem in November 1996. Six months later, Freeman, 25, who also identified as a woman, was stabbed with a screwdriver in a building on W. 128th St.
Forney, who made personal appeals to police to solve the murders, according to Siciliano, was himself killed in December 1997, shot dead on E. 131st St.”
Meet two gay dads whose life plans totally changed because of love.
“Priscilla, just shy of her fifth birthday at the time and a child with special needs, could not walk or talk when Michael and Bruce Boden-Baumann first met her. Yet, she managed to speak deeply to both men with her soul-stirring actions. Both men, who were meeting with Priscilla and her foster Mom at the time, found themselves helplessly smitten when Priscilla earnestly scooted up to Michael and gestured imploringly with her arms to be picked up. Tenderly clambering up into his welcoming arms, she embraced Michael in a manner that spoke soft volumes to the hearts of both men and set the wheels in motion for a future that none of the three could have predicted.”

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 and bisexual celebs who deserve more recognition.
This week our 160th ShoutOUT™ is to … Jay Armstrong Johnson
Closing out our week with Jay, he’s currently starring as agent trainee Will Olsen on Quantico, which is apparently a show on ABC, or so I’m told.
Most Briefs lists involve the “best” or “greatest” of something, so for a change let’s switch it up, as Evil Snicks brings you The 30 Worst Music Videos Of All Time.
You’ll see debacles from major musical artists, as well as a few Youtube “stars.” Sure, it’s really easy to pick on desperate wannabes. It’s fun, too. But it proves that terrible can run the gamut from multi-million dollar productions to, well, a certain video named after a day of the week. You know the one.
At #21 is “Gimme More” by Britney Spears
Filmed during one of her troubled periods, the concept was obviously “Britney on a stripper pole, and the rest will write itself!” So they took 20 bucks out of petty cash, gave her some ill-fitting costumes, some random choreography and truly hideous wigs, and let the cameras roll for four minutes. The best that can be said is that it’s better than her disastrous “performance” of the song on the VMA’s.
Congrats to Miz Liz, who guessed that yesterday’s Pixuzzle™ © ® was Supernatural.
