  • Entertainment This Wheeldon's Fire

    Christopher Wheeldon wields a lot of power in the world of ballet. Happily, as the former soloist and resident choreographer -- and, frankly, the golden boy -- of the New York City Ballet, he wields it gracefully. Wheeldon, 35, began dancing in his youth at London's Royal Ballet, and he lives, breathes, and loves (his partner, Jock Soto, is a recently retired New York City Ballet legend) ballet even as he yanks it into the 21st century.

    “Lighten up... Fashion is no longer a rich man’s privilege. Anyone can carry it off and make it look beautiful... We weren’t trying to make a political statement or save the world."

    -- Vogue India Editor Priya Tanna in the New York Times, responding to the controversy surrounding the August spread, which features luxe fashion items modeled by average (read: poor) Indian people.

  • News & Opinion Editor's Letter

    There are times when it seems right and necessary to challenge the presumption of a gay culture, if only because it assumes the existence of its opposite -- a straight culture (in which we implicitly have no part). And then there are times when you are going innocently about your life, minding your business, thinking happy assimilationist thoughts, when out of nowhere comes a huge rock to knock your equilibrium off-kilter. Last month that rock came wrapped in lyrics that sent me spinning (not a metaphor) back to my tender youth, just as songs are supposed to do.

  • Entertainment The Gay Agenda

    Tuesday, September 2: The much anticipated update of '90s pop-culture phenomenon Beverly Hills, 90210 premieres tonight at 8:00 p.m. on The CW. Melrose Place heartthrob Rob Estes stars as Harry Wilson, a father who transplants his family from Kansas to Beverly Hills. New hotties to watch for: Dustin Milligan (playing Ethan Ward), Ryan Eggold (Ryan Matthews), The Wire's Tristan Wilds (Dixon Wilson) and Michael Stegar (Navid Shirazi). And, this time, the actors look like they could actually pass for, well, high schoolers.

  • Entertainment Jumping The Snark

    It appears we've lost another cherished gay tradition to the straight mainstream. Like plucked eyebrows on men, Abercrombie & Fitch, and anal sex, our hetero pals have decided to co-opt another valuable piece of our homo heritage: snark. And straight teen boys, who never really got the hang of tweezers, aren't handling snark very well either.

  • Entertainment Live To Tell-All

    Christopher Ciccone spent most of the last 47 years following his big sister Madonna around the world and pitching in where and whenever she needed him: back up dancer, tour director, interior designer and -- above all -- confidante. Which is probably the position she most regrets assigning him now that he's released a tell-all memoir entitled Life With My Sister Madonna. The Queen of Pop outed her brother in a 1991 interview with The Advocate, so it seems only fair that Ciccone should have a chance to return the favor and air some of her dirty laundry.

    "There is no contest! I mean, Michelle really epitomizes American style, and she's not afraid to show her shape, she's not afraid to show her sexiness without being the least bit inappropriate. She's just an alluring woman. And Cindy with her suits and she's all buttoned up, she's just soooo...she just looks like she's duct-taped!"

    -- Tim Gunn on which First Lady nominee has better style, Michelle Obama or Cindy McCain

    At the 2006 DVD release party for 9 to 5, Dolly Parton performed the film's Oscar-nominated theme song. She started by clicking her nails against each other in an approximation of the movie's opening typewriter sound. 'You have to have falsies to do this. The nails too,' she quipped. And then, noting her audience, Parton encouraged a full-scale sing-along. 'All you girls, all you guys -- all you guys who want to be girls -- let me hear you!' And an entire room erupted in song.

    "Chuck is an iconic character and the clothes are iconic. I think I rock the look well. My style has always been good. Top notch, baby. I like the glamorous indie rock look, like the Libertines. But you know, without the heroin needle sticking out of my arm."
