The Gay Agenda: 10 Things We're Eyeing In March

3.4.2014

By Stacy Lambe

How I Met Your Mother, Chelsea Handler and Naomi Campbell's face top our pop culture must-list for the month

Getting Loud with Lea Michele

Released the same weekend as the Oscars, the Glee star is out to prove herself as more than a show choir singer. Louder mixes the prevailing sounds of Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus with Michele’s capable vocals. And she doesn't shy away from the emotional elephant in the room. "You're Mine" touches on her relationship with Cory Monteith before his untimely death. (Louder is out now)

Reconnecting with Neneh Cherry

Back with her first solo album in 17 years, Neneh Cherry is ready to find a new generation of fans. Blank Project is a woozy set of electronica featuring sputtering beats, a duet with Robyn, and, of course, Cherry’s exceptional voice. Spend the next month reconnecting with Cherry, who is wonderfully melodic yet tough as hell. (Blank Project is out now)

Traveling to Uganda with Chelsea Handler

While we have no real interest in traveling to the African nation of Uganda, we don't mind trekking to see Chelsea Handler live on tour. The late night host is taking her new book, Uganda Be Kidding Me, on the road for 31 days around the country. Her latest book tells stories of her travels around the world, which includes peeing off the side of a Jeep in Africa and smuggling vodka past checkpoints. (In stores on Mar. 4, tickets available now)

The Return of The Face

Making her return to Oxygen is Naomi Campbell is the second season of the modeling competition that sees her, Anne Vyalitsyna and Lydia Hearst mentoring a crop of aspiring models. Campbell dominated the series with her tantrums, harsh critiques and GIF-able faces. The face of this show belongs solely to Naomi. (Premieres on Oxygen on Mar. 5)

Sounding the Alarm with USA

Imagine if Rescue Me stripped away all the drama and just focused on the EMTs for a half hour. That's what USA is planning to do each week with its new series, Sirens, produced by Denis Leary. One of the three characters, Hank, will provide laughs as the African American gay EMT who may be concerned more about crashing weddings than his job. (Premieres on USA on Mar. 6)

Checking Into The Grand Budapest Hotel

Wes Anderson is back with what have been calling one of his best films to date. While it's no Moonrise Kingdom, it does tell a fanciful story about a bellhop and a lobby boy working at the most beautifully designed hotel Anderson has ever conceived. The film truly is design porn built for the big screen. (In theaters Mar. 7)

Killing Our Darlings 

Okay, no one is killing anyone, except maybe our emotions with Kill Your Darlings on DVD and Blu-ray. The film, directed by Out100 honoree John Krokidas, is Daniel Radcliffe's latest foray into adulthood as he sheds the cloak of Harry Potter and matures into an outstanding young actor, along with co-star Dane DeHaan. Here he takes on the role of Allen Ginsberg in the riveting tale about the death of David Krammerer (played by Michael C. Hall). (Available on Mar. 18)

Watching Frozen on Repeat

Coming to DVD and Blu Ray on March 18 is the most beloved animated film of the past year (and what feels like the past decade). Frozen, which is now the highest grossing animated film, will make its way into the homes of gays everywhere as we search for something to get us through the end of a long, harsh winter. Start prepping your sing-along parties now. (In stores on Mar. 18)

Cory Monteith's Final Film

Is yet to be determined where McCanick will fall in the Cory Monteith canon as the actor's final film. But one thing is for sure, his death will loom heavily over this feature about a brutal manhunt in this paranoid thriller. (In theaters Mar. 21) 

Saying Goodbye to Barney and the Gang

The end of How I Met Your Mother is finally here. After nine seasons, it's time to say goodbye to Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) and that gang that lit of the small screen for nine years. While theories are running wild about the Mother's fate, one thing we know is that there will be tears no matter the outcome. (Series finale on CBS on Mar. 31)
