The Gay Agenda


By Joseph Hassan

Monday, September 22: Tune in to The Ellen DeGeneres Show today to catch Dolly Parton performing her newly released single "Shinola" off her critically acclaimed album Backwoods Barbie. Parton's spot on Ellen will give you a taste of what to expect during the buxom blonde's Backwoods Barbie World Tour, the next leg of which starts October 17 in Florida and runs through the middle of November. She may be 62, but Dolly is as young-spirited and divalicious as ever. Head to Ticketmaster for concert dates and tickets in your area, then check local listings for Parton's appearance on Ellen.

Tuesday, September 23: Don't fight it: Sit back, relax, and, as they say, get 'Carried' away, cosmo in hand, as Sex and the City the Movie (above) comes out today on DVD. (Not a cosmo fan? Try following this recipe for a Celebrity Crush from mixologist Brian Loukmas.) Also out on DVD today: On the Downlow, director Abigail Child's docudrama that follows four young African-American men who live on the down low in urban Cleveland. The film offers us a glimpse into the lives of Antonio, an ex-convict who went DL while incarcerated, and Ray, who has an affection for drag queens.
