The Gay Agenda
FLICK: In Priceless a case of mistaken identity unites Irene (Audrey Tautou) and Jean (Gad Elamaleh) for an amorous affair -- that is, until millionaire-seducing Irene discovers Jean's meager financial background. Not wanting to be left in the dust, Jean plays up his own charm onto wealthy women, beginning a playful competition between him and Irene as they use rich lovers to increase their own value (and interest in one another). The scintillating chase opens in limited release on March 28.March 23 2008 8:00 PM

Marlene Dietrich Marlene Dietrich in London (1965) Recorded 34 years after Morocco, the benchmark film that featured Dietrich seducing both sexes while garbed in top hat and tux, this cherished performance bends its genders strictly by association. She was the picture of mature femininity, but that voice -- vulnerable yet virile, coquettish yet cocksure, silly yet oh, so serious -- had its own coy twists.

Rocco Kayiatos, the man behind the San Francisco'based hip-hop sensation Katastrophe, has described himself as 'just a dude who makes music.' But oh, how words don't suffice: Katastrophe's manic beats and wicked lyrics are anything but commonplace, and his particular journey to manhood would humble even the bravest of superheroes. The 28-year-old rapper began the transition from female to male in 2002 and has been releasing his unique brand of 'emo-hop' albums ever since.March 20 2008 8:00 PM
All Mixed Up
There is no more bashful yet blatant love letter than the mix tape. No matter how the technology has changed -- call it a mix CD or an iMix, if you must -- the heart of it has stayed the same. At their best, they are carefully curated, obsessively arranged, and imbued with a thousand deeper meanings, each song carrying a secret message to the listener.March 20 2008 8:00 PM

Orlando, Virginia Woolf's fantastical tale of young prince Orlando is a delightful confection of subtle wit and obvious affection for those of us who struggle against the social confines of gender. Initially scandalous for the obvious resemblance between the title character and Vita Sackville-West, Woolf's lesbian lover, the book has shed controversy through the decades, leaving us a lesbian and trans classic that reads as if it could have been written yesterday.8:00 PM

Trans men, like all the rest of you alcoholic homos, sometimes get drunk and accidentally have sex with their friends. The morning after too many manhattans and one such naked romp, in the hangover haze of potential awkwardness, I broke the tension by asking my previously platonic bio-guy pal a question. 'How did it feel being inside, uh, that other hole?' I asked, solely for the purpose of scientific inquiry and advancement of all trans-kind. 'Surprisingly similar,' he said, 'but with easier access.'March 18 2008 8:00 PM

How do you turn a penis into a vagina? It's not as difficult from a medical point of view as you might think. Yes, it involves some rather delicate major surgery and the risk of all kinds of ghastly complications -- and nobody undertakes such a project lightly. But -- and I know this will come as a disappointment to many -- male and female genitalia are, anatomically speaking, sufficiently alike to make the procedure relatively straightforward. Essentially, the penis is turned inside out, inverted, and placed inside a cavity tunneled out of the lower abdomen.March 18 2008 8:00 PM

A typical first reaction when I've told people we were putting together a transgender issue is puzzlement. A frown passes over their features, and they seem momentarily thrown. No one, of course, says exactly what they are thinking, but you can see the gears turning. It would be one thing to address the subject in an essay or a column, perhaps, but a whole issue sounds like homework: Next week we'll be studying the history of the transgender people. Please read relevant works and discuss.March 16 2008 8:00 PM

On a cold winter night I take my 20-year-old friend Hunter to an East Village gay bar -- his first time in a New York City watering hole where he could wade among other cute gay men like himself. I convince the bartender to let us in by pretending that Hunter is my little brother who just turned 21 and came out but had his wallet and ID stolen on the subway. The barkeep grudgingly lets us stay, and we take a seat in the rear.March 16 2008 8:00 PM

1. Work with trans people to push your city's homeless shelter system to place residents according to gender identity and safety rather than birth gender. Such policies have already been won in San Francisco, New York, Boston, and Washington, D.C., and are an attainable goal that can save lives.

FLICK: Surfboards and men never looked better than in Shelter, the new film from Jonah Markowitz. When family commitments keep Zach (Trevor Wright) away from art school, he finds companionship in Shaun (Brad Rowe), his best friend's older brother. We won't spoil the movie, but let's just say the two build a bond that is more than platonic. The film opens in select theaters March 21.
