The Gay Agenda


By Joseph Hassan

Monday, December 22: Yes, it's officially time to freak out. You have 72 hours until Christmas, and chances are you still have some naughty boys (and girls) on your list to take care of. Allow us to offer up a few last-minute gift ideas that will keep on giving into the New Year. Justin Monroe's Down the Rabbit Hole is an edgy collection of photography (the surreally staged portraits begin with an adventure down a different kind of rabbit hole, if you catch our drift) with some awesome shots of celebrities, including Amanda Lepore and Janice Dickinson. Out comedian Jason Stuart's recently released DVD Making it to the Middle will take care of your close chums in need of a good laugh. If you're looking to stuff stockings, snag tickets to the Britney Spears or Katy Perry concerts slated for 2009. Still stumped? Get some inspiration from Out's extensive Holiday Gift Guide.

Tuesday, December 23: If you haven't yet caught Liza Minnelli in action at New York City's Palace Theatre, you're running out of time. Can you think of a more quintessentially gay Big Apple moment than seeing the histrionic icon perform 'New York, New York' on a Broadway stage? Step one: Pick up a copy of the recently released Liza Minnelli: The Complete A&M Recordings, which includes all the tracks Liza released for the label over four decades. Step two: Book tickets before the show closes on January 4. Tonight's gig starts at 8:00 PM EST, with tickets available through Ticketmaster.
