“Capitol Hill is packed with gay staffers,” says the narrator of “Outrage,” a documentary by filmmaker Kirby Dick that seeks to expose closeted gay conservatives who publicly oppose gay rights. The film features several men discussing their relationships with various politicians, including former New York City Mayor Ed Koch, Florida Governor Charlie Crist, and former Senator Larry Craig. Dick says the mainstream media has ignored rumors about closeted gay politicians, and his film purports to expose the hypocrisy of those politicians who allegedly hinder gay rights efforts by day but benefit from the activism of others by night. All the allegations in the film are true, says Dick. “If they decide to legally come after me that will become as big a story as the film,” he said. “All it will do is help ticket sales.” “Outrage” premiered last Friday at the Tribeca Film Festival and is slated for a limited release in several cities, including Washington, D.C., on May 8.
Do you think outing these politicians will give more transparency in government? Or is coming out always a personal decision? How much privacy should politicians have? Keep reading »

Everyone’s still talking about Miss California’s gay marriage comments. Now there’s more drama for 21-year-old beauty queen Carrie Prejean. Apparently, there were some nice perks for her as former Miss California. The state’s pageant organization paid her bill for fake boobs.
Prejean received breast implants paid for by the Miss California Organization just weeks before she competed in the Miss USA pageant, confirmed Shanna Moakler, co-executive director of organization. Shanna told “Access Hollywood” that Carrie wanted breasts implants and the Miss California Organization “supported that decision.” Shanna, herself a former Miss USA and an ex-Playboy Playmate, added, “Breast implants in pageants is not a rarity. It’s definitely not taboo. It’s very common. Breast implants today among young women today is very common.” Keep reading »
I went on a date the other week with a pair of hot Swedish volleyball players with galactic hoots and bodies so taut that quarters bounce off bellies. These buxom hotties could easily have graced the pages of Brodawg Magazine, posing in the rain, wearing only leather belts. As they were putting on their heels to join me in the champagne jacuzzi, it occurred to me that these phantasmagorical sirens weren’t doing it for me. Then I woke up with both of my arms in my pant legs. Cursed margaritas, so tequila-y and delicious. Keep reading »
When I saw photos of Kim Kardashian as a blond this week, one thing ticker-taped through my head: It’s J.Lo! (You know, the Jenny-from-the-block version, when she wore that huge, pink engagement ring and had Ben Affleck rub her butt in her music video.) That got me thinking: What other celeb twins are out there?
“I am totally confident that I am an incredible artist and performer. I am extremely confident about my body, the way I dress, the way I want to look. But I have no confidence when it comes to men. Men are a disaster area for me. It’s so weird because I believe I am super sexy. I believe I am incredible, but I have absolutely no luck with boyfriends.”

Have you been watching “Tough Love” on VH1? It took a bit to grow on me. Now, not only do I love the show, I may be harboring a secret crush on host Steve Ward.
I bring this up because a couple weeks ago, he had the ladies participate in an impromptu game show that he called “Cute or Crazy.” Not surprisingly, one contestant’s habit of letting her cats choose her boyfriends was dubbed “crazy,” while another’s Riverdance reenactment qualified as “cute.”
Many of us have some behaviors that might be misinterpreted as kooky, when they’re actually just quirky. Take, for example, how I get livid if anyone dares to crack one of my magazines open before I’ve had a chance to browse through it. That’s perfectly understandable. Right? Keep reading »
