The Gay Agenda
By Peter Schaus
FLICK: Queer filmmaker Todd Haynes has always been a horse of a different color. His short film �Dottie Gets Spanked� featured a pre-teen protagonist who longed for abuse, and the central character of Safe was allergic to the outdoors. So it isn�t surprising that his new Bob Dylan biopic, I�m Not There, features six actors (one of whom -- haven't you heard? -- is the inimitable Cate Blanchett) playing the legendary rock icon. Given its kick-ass soundtrack and the quality of Haynes� previous work, we smell Oscar nod for this one. The film opens in limited release on Nov. 23.
PAGE-TURNER: Those of you who've used up all your paid time off nursing hangovers can break free by picking up queer author Brian Bouldrey�s travel memoir, Honorable Bandit: A Walk across Corsica. Bouldrey straps on a backpack for the tome, walking across Napolean�s native land in a two-week trek, where he discovers cultural nuances, personal and physical challenges, and how to cope when you get very, very lost. Honorable Bandit is in stores now.
TUBE: In honor of the show�s 100th episode, prominent dykon Melissa Etheridge will be joining Out's Humanitarian of the Year, Annie Lennox, and Rufus Wainwright to host Logo�s NewNowNext, a video jukebox show that serves as the gay man�s equivalent to MTV�s Headbanger�s Ball. The show has helped launch Logo as the go-to destination for queer performers and gay-friendly artists. NewNowNext airs all week. Check listings for repeat times.
