Burst Your Bubble

The Two Americas. We hear this term a lot these days, but it would be difficult denying the reality. Funny enough, we were just having a conversation with a friend yesterday about trying to “understand the other side” when expressing the grief and bewilderment of family members we love who…

Anything-But-Plain Jane

Most of us only know Jane Fonda from her work in Hollywood. Or watching our moms dance around the house in aerobic frenzies. 9 to 5, Barbarella and Grace & Frankie all have special places in our heart. But for many, she will always be known as the embodiment of controversy for her…

Looking, Further.

Fans of HBO’s Looking were saddened that the series that defined a new generation of gay men only lasted two seasons. Fortunately, HBO understood the show’s appeal and ordered a movie to wrap up the storylines and bring a sense of closure, a luxury not every cancelled series gets. Looking:…

Tailored To The LGBTQ Experience

When we were gay teens, HBO was there for us. Sure, it was so we could possibly catch a glimpse of a naked guy butt, but still, they provided a service. Well, things have come a long way in what HBO is doing for LGBTQ youth. The new “Get Suited”…
