The Gay Agenda


By Joseph Hassan

Wednesday, October 22: We all need a little break from the fervent political discourse of the last several weeks, so take a gay cultural day and see a flick at Reel Affirmations 18: The Nation's LGBT Film Festival, which continues in Washington, D.C. today. You could attend a screening of Half-Life, in which cynical 19-year-old Pam is fixated on her best friend Scott, a hot gay Korean adoptee who can't resist throwing his sexuality in the faces of his fundamentalist parents. Go to the official website for more on the film festival and screening locations.

Thursday, October 23: There's nothing Stone Age about 30 Rock , the hip, hilarious, Emmy-winning NBC series starring the delectable Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin. (We say that in addition to her Emmys for best comedic actress and writer, Fey deserves a statue for her portrayal of Governor Sarah 'I-can-see-Russia-from-my-house' Palin on Saturday Night Live.) 30 Rock's long-awaited season premiere is going digital with a special online airing tonight. Pick up a copy of TV Guide (Fey and Baldwin adorn the cover this week) and follow the special instructions for your free download.
