The Gay Agenda
By Peter Schaus
SPECTACLE: What's gayer than Marc Jacobs, Alan Cumming, and Rufus Wainwright at the Chelsea fitness hotspot, the David Barton Gym? Sarah Jessica Parker and Debbie Harry added to the mix. Bring one unwrapped gift and you'll gain admission to the David Barton Gym's Annual Toy Drive, which benefits St. Jude's Research Hospital. From 8:30-11:30 p.m. on Dec. 11, you can eat, drink, and be merry in the presence of all your favorite stars and help support an important cause. You could also witness a bunch of queens singing 'We Three Kings' at The New York Gay Men's Chorus 2007 Holiday Spectacular the same night at 8 p.m. in Carnegie Hall. Tony nominee Kelli O'Hara and acclaimed bass-baritone Robert Osborne will make cameo appearances. Get tickets at CarnegieHall.org.
FLICK: Already pegged to become the Little Miss Sunshine-like sleeper hit of 2007 is Juno, the debut film from blogger-cum-screenwriter Diablo Cody. Juno features Hard Candy's Ellen Page as the titular, chain-smoking teenage girl who turns lemons into Limocellos when she gets impregnated by her best friend, Paulie (Superbad's Michael Cera). The Office's Rainn Wilson and Jennifer Garner co-star, respectively, as a quirky pharmacist and a potential mum for Juno's unborn child. The film opens in limited release on Dec. 14. Check out the trailer over at Apple.com.
TUBE: It's holiday time for the gang at TGS with Tracy Jordan on NBC's Emmy-winning sitcom 30 Rock. Buck Henry and Anita Gillette make their first appearance as Tina Fey's parents, and Andy Richter plays her amnesiac brother who thinks he's a high school senior. To add further chaos to the mix, saucy gay fave Elaine Stritch reprises her Emmy-winning turn as Jack's brassy mother, Colleen. 30 Rock airs Dec. 13 at 9 p.m, but if you want to catch up on episodes you've missed this season, you can stream them over at NBC.com.
