The Gay Agenda
By Joseph Hassan
Friday, October 10: Guy Ritchie�s latest foul-mouthed, men-behaving-very-badly flick RocknRolla hits select theaters today. Starring Gerard Butler, Jeremy Piven, and Tom Hardy playing an honest to goodness gay gangster, the film is a slick blend of sex, drugs, and rock �n� roll topped off with a heavy, always welcome dash of homoeroticism. And if you're hungry for another helping of Tom Hardy, check Out.com later this month for a profile of the hunky British actor.
Saturday, October 11: If you haven�t already, hit up the latest from actor-playwright Charles Busch. The Third Story adds another tough-talking dame to his canon, the kind of role Joan Crawford would kill for. But since she�s dead, Busch once again dons the wigs and shoulder pads himself, this time to play an unemployed Hollywood screenwriter who recruits her son to help her draft a screwball sci-fi script she hopes will resurrect her career. Visit La Jolla Playhouse for tickets and show times.
Sunday, October 12: Dropping salty rhymes, shameless sexuality, and slyly inspiring mantras over club-stompin� synth beats, Tampa-based lesbian rappers Shunda K and Jwl. B (collectively known as the regal Yo Majesty) turn the tables on misogynist hip-hop homophobes everywhere with their riotous debut full-length album Futuristically Speaking�Never Be Afraid (Domino), the follow-up to this summer�s Kryptonite Pussy EP. Good news: You can finally buy it now.
