The three members of Labelle -- Nona Hendryx, Sarah Dash, and Patti LaBelle herself -- grew up together with the gay community. Arriving in the early '60s with a classic girl-group sound that transitioned into an R&B/rock hybrid, these tough-voiced, spectacularly dressed divas felt the support of gay audiences even before they hit the big time in the mid-'70s with their enduring bilingual anthem of soul sexiness, 'Lady Marmalade.' A breakup soon followed and each member followed a divergent path to solo success; Hendryx even came out as bisexual.November 13 2008 7:00 PM

"I've been using that phrase for a couple of decades, and I'll tell you where it came from.

And I don't permit that because I don't believe you learn anything from it. It's really important to take a project that has gone slightly awry, wrestle with it, offer up aNovember 13 2008 8:19 AM

W e've been on Katy Perry's case since her breakout song, 'Ur So Gay,' dropped in late 2007. She told us then that 'there's a little gay man trapped inside' and that what made her different than other pop starlets was her sense of humor. After One of the Boys (Capitol Records) blew up, in no small part thanks to the controversy of No. 1 single 'I Kissed a Girl,' we tracked Perry to this summer's Vans Warped Tour.November 11 2008 7:00 PM

Monday, November 10: After nearly two years of coast-to-coast campaigning that blurred the lines between politics and pop culture, Americans headed to last week's polls in record numbers. We showed that, as a nation, we have reached a turning point in racial acceptance. At the same time, state-level backtracks on gay rights (specifically gay marriage) show that bigotry and hypocrisy still dominate parts of our culture.November 09 2008 7:00 PM
