The Gay Agenda


By Joseph Hassan

Monday, December 1: Events nationwide commemorate the 20th anniversary of World AIDS Day today. Los Angelenos can view an evolution of the AIDS epidemic at UCLA's exhibit 'AIDS and the Moving Image,' which will continuously stream talk shows, documentaries, and feature films on the topic of AIDS on monitors across the university's Powell Library. In New York City, POZ magazine hosts its 'Bacharach to the Future' event to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. Dozens of stage actors are scheduled to appear, including Katie Adams (Wicked), Gerard Canonico (Spring Awakening), Billy Porter (Angels in America, Jesus Christ Superstar), and Julie Reiber (Wicked, Rent). Tickets for the 7:30 PM EST show are available through Telecharge. For general information on World AIDS Day, visit The World AIDS Campaign.

Tuesday, December 2: President-Elect Obama's cabinet members aren't the only big-ticket items that have been leaking out over the past couple of weeks. Britney Spears suffered a similar fate when her newest album, Circus, was shared online in advance of today's scheduled release. Apart from 'Womanizer,' the first radio edit already in heavy rotation, there are a number of tracks that will be hitting your local dance floor. One of our favorites is 'Phonography,' which boasts an extremely contagious -- and totally dance-worthy -- beat. Download the album and rock out to Britney's heavily anticipated comeback. Fingers crossed on that one.
