Weekend Birthdays! Zac Efron (above) is 28, Tyler Posey is 24, Pam Dawber is 64, Martina Navratilova is 59, Margot Kidder is 67, and Suzanne Sommers is 69.

I don’t know if you’d call this poetic justice, or the intolerant asshat version of Mega Python Vs. Gatoroid, but come this Monday, Westboro is going to picket Kim Davis for being a “fake Christian” and “self-righteous hypocrite.”

Americans are coming out on Facebook in record numbers.

“The survey, they write, found that roughly 800,000 Americans updated their Facebook profiles to express a same-gender attraction or custom gender in the past year, while fans of LGBT-specific groups have increased 25 percent. The surge is even more dramatic at a day-to-day level, as the number of people on Facebook coming out each day is three times what it was one year ago.”

Here are 13 queer hip-hop musicians you need to hear, including Mykki Blanco, Angel Haze, and Cazwell, who always looks like he’s about to do something naughty.


Syfy has cancelled Defiance after three seasons, after cancelling Dominion after two seasons. What, they can’t wait til the fifth like they used to?

Here’s Episode Ten of Season Four of Where The Bears Are. “The Bears show up at a local watering hole in the valley called Mugs & Jugs after Todd (Ian Parks) finds out one of Reggie’s assailants works there as a bouncer. But their investigation is sidetracked when Wood’s off-handed comment about acting more butch than Nelson and Reggie results in the three of them pretending to be straight and hitting on all the waitresses”

Here’s the Friday Puzzler! “Trick Or Treat”

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 we give a ShoutOUT™ to … Kerwin Mathews


Kerwin continued making B movies in the late 60’s through the early 70’s (including the insane Battle Beneath The Earth), and he retired from acting in 1978. He moved to San Francisco, ran a clothing and antiques store, and died in his sleep in on July 5, 2007, at the age of 81. He was survived by his partner of 46 years, Tom Nicoll.

Three years ago I presented my personal favorite Briefs list, The 100 Greatest Lost Hits of The 80’s, and because if there’s one thing Hollywood has taught us, it’s that sequels and reboots and remakes are ALWAYS better then the original, we’re going to the well again with The 100 Greatest Lost Hits of The 80’s Part 2: The Even More Forgotten

We’ll be spotlighting 100 more of the greatest minor hits of the decade, the songs you don’t hear on any 80’s nostalgia show. Songs that missed the top ten, or top twenty … or top forty. Hopefully these forgotten gems may ring a long dormant bell, or for younger readers, provide a pop music history lesson.

At #86 is “If The Love Fits Wear It” by Leslie Pearl


Leslie Pearl wrote and sang jingles for Pepsi, Folgers Coffee, Ford, and Gillette, and you can certainly hear that influence on her one and only chart entry, which could easily have been re-purposed for say, Jordache Jeans. “If The Love Fits Wear It” reached #28 in August 1982.
