  • Pet Shop Boys Perform World Premier Of Alan Turing Opera With BBC Orchestra

    Pet Shop Boys Perform World Premier Of Alan Turing Opera With BBC Orchestra Accompanied by the BBC Concert Orchestra and the BBC Singers, last night Pet Shop Boys performed the world premier of their Alan Turing opera, A Man From The Future, at Britain's Proms event at Royal Albert Hall. The Independent has posted a review: Tennant stands by the choir for A Man From the Future, with fellow Boy Chris Lowe behind him in familiar baseball cap and shades, tweaking a laptop. Juliet Stevenson’s disembodied narration, drawn from Andrew Hodges’ Turing biographies, is almost overpoweringly dominant. But getting the tale of Turing’s singular genius and representative tragedy across seems to outweigh the balance between words and music. “Conform, rebel or withdraw” are the choices the public schoolboy Turing is presented with, as[…]

  • Straight Bourbon. Or Possibly Gay. Whatever.

    Straight Bourbon. Or Possibly Gay. Whatever. I'm my father's son, and as such I appreciate a good bourbon. One that's well blended, has a slow heat that you slip into like a fresh shirt, and preferably one that has a vanilla flavor softer than crushed velvet. I take it over the rocks, though when mixed with a bit of sparkling wine, bitters, and orange peel it makes for a delightful cocktail to pair with a fatty piece of pork.However, sometimes, when I order bourbon at the bar it draws shocked stares and bouts of disbelief as if I had just told my dining companions that my newest hobby involved silicone fists and rohypnol. At home I usually pour wine, or terribly pretty and over thought cocktails[…]

  • ALASKA: Marriage Case Set For October

    Via the Associated Press:Arguments are scheduled for October in a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of Alaska's ban on same-sex marriage. Five same-sex couples, four married outside of Alaska and one unmarried couple, sued to overturn the ban in May. Alaska voters approved a constitutional amendment in 1998 defining marriage as between one man and one woman. The state, in its response, said Alaska isn't required to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states. State attorneys also argue that Alaska, as a sovereign state, has the right to define and regulate marriage. The case is being heard by U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Burgess.(Tipped by JMG reader Luis)

    LOUISIANA: Marriage Case Judge Has Heard Enough, Doesn't Want More Briefs Four weeks ago in New Orleans, federal Judge Martin Feldman surprised both sides when he declared that he would not merely consider the out-of-state marriage recognition case before him, but intended to rule on Louisiana's constitutional ban on same-sex marriage as well. Yesterday Feldman issued an order declining any further briefs or arguments on either issue. He did not say when his ruling will come. The recognition suit was filed by the Forum For Equality Louisiana on behalf of four couples who are legally married on other states.

  • Former Meth Junkie and Drag Queen Now Gives Back to Community With 'Enlightened Tapping'

    Former Meth Junkie and Drag Queen Now Gives Back to Community With 'Enlightened Tapping' Alan Davidson grew up a misfit in a small Texas town. It was the 1970s. When the counterculture was flourishing in the U.S., he felt like he'd finally found a group where he might fit in and be accepted for who he was: a gay young man. Davidson soon found himself regularly shooting up methamphetamine, and his life was spinning out of control. He felt that the root of his problem was always that he was different, that his sexuality would never be accepted. Internally his mind vacillated between manic fervor and chronic fear. As bartender to Houston's "fabulous," he developed an outrageous personality to hide his anxieties and self-loathing. It might be nice to say he got help and[…]

    Hidden History Helped End 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' A reporter covering recent LGBT strides toward equality recently asked me, "Are you surprised at how fast things are moving?" When I replied that I think they're actually moving pretty slowly, he looked at me quizzically. After all, the past four years have been one victory after another, celebrating marriages and serving openly in the military, right?It only appears to be happening quickly because of all the heroes during the past six decades.We're familiar with the 1969 Stonewall riots, now memorialized in annual Pride celebrations. But 18 years earlier the Mattachine Society, and then the Daughters of Bilitis a few years after that, started building a grassroots movement of gay people to increase understanding and stop discrimination.Fighting the "no gays[…]

    DENVER (AP) — A federal judge in Denver has declared Colorado's gay marriage ban unconstitutional, but he issued a temporary stay of the ruling until an appeals court hearing next month.Judge Raymond P.

Individuals identifying as "campaign volunteers, financial supporters and constituents" sent a letter to Jolly Wednesday urging him to apologize for his remarks."We call upon you to publicly apologize for this mistake and hold fast to your original position that states should define marriage as it has always been, the union of one man and one woman only.

    PG&E, ConAgra, and Edison Set a New Standard for LGBT Workplace Inclusion We're now in an era where there are more openly gay professional athletes than Fortune 500 CEOs.Corporate America has come a long way in creating LGBT-inclusive policy (as has the government, just this week), but as Deena Fidas of the Human Rights Campaign says, "The inclusive policies coming from the boardroom have not fully made it into the everyday culture of the American workplace."One key to changing this culture is activating non-LGBT employees to stand up and show their support. When executives, managers, and peers speak up as allies in those everyday scenarios we're all familiar with -- the boss voicing a stereotype, or the client making an innocent assumption about someone's sexuality -- the community of people working towards[…]
