  • Entertainment Donate to the Partridge Family of Hate

    Part of the proceeds of this column will go toward establishing the Phags 4 Phelps Dephense Phund. Why? Because Pastor Fred Phelps, the most tenacious homophobe in the world today, has done more for gay Americans than most activists. I first became aware of the Phelps clan in the mid '90s when they came to protest Atlanta's pride festival. I so admired the graphic simplicity of their neon posters depicting stick figures having anal sex that I actually tried, without luck, to purchase one of them from Phelps's website.

  • Entertainment Sometimes We Hate Each Other

    Am I wrong to think that we get offended too easily? Not that we don't have a lot to get angry about, but sometimes I get so weary of the acrimony and the bile, the high-pitched whine that seems to settle over the gay landscape like one of Dante's circles of hell. There was a time when it was commonly assumed that being gay doomed us to a life of misery and bitterness, but until I saddled myself to the gay media wagon I'd never imagined that we'd be the ones to help perpetuate it.

  • Entertainment Tour de Fuerz

    In Fuerzabruta, an audience is showered with water and debris, blasted with smoke and bright lights, and herded through the room like hypnotized cattle, all to a propulsive techno soundtrack. A typical evening on Broadway it is not, but the show's Argentine creator, Diqui James, isn't catering to stuffy theatergoers. 'We don't want to do something just for intellectuals who love literature,' he explains, 'or just for young kids who love raves.'

  • Entertainment The Kids Aren't All Right

    "We like dick jokes,' says Darren Trumeter, a quirky 28-year-old cast member of The Whitest Kids U' Know, now beginning its second season on IFC. 'It's funny to us; it makes us laugh.' When the sketch comedy show airs February 10, fans and first-timers alike can expect more of Trumeter and his troupe's irreverent, raunchy humor.

    Childhood crush: This crossing guard who worked near my kindergarten. He had a huge mouth and these enormous white teeth. Most regretted fashion choice: The $1,000 I spent having a dress made a month before I stopped doing drag. I never wore it. Who will play you in the film version of your life story? Andy Samberg. My God, have you seen that man's mouth? His teeth? My vision of hell is: A world run by haters like James Dobson and Pat Robertson. Plus: nothing but small-mouthed boys with tiny, dark teeth.

    A bearish bearded guy behind a desk waves his cigar at three hulking bodybuilders, who later retreat to a locker room to sweat buckets and exchange lustful glances. Reappearing on a construction site, the well-oiled bodybuilders wield power tools while the bearded man now flaunts a black gossamer wedding dress, a foot-high tiara, black latex gloves, and a satin train that billows in the wind as he belts out some chalga'Bulgarian pop-folk set to hip-hop beats.

    Brazilian DJ Rodrigo Gorky never imagined he'd be the beat boy for a baile funk trio, Bonde Do Role. Then again, such a trio could never have been imagined. Growing up in Curitiba, Brazil, 'I wanted to be the guy who sits in an office all day long and listens to demos and says, 'Oh, this is good, this is bad,'' he says. To satisfy his sonic sweet tooth, Gorky (in photo, left), who is gay, began dabbling in turntables. Those turntables turned his life around when he was introduced to a fellow DJ, Pedro D'Eyrot (now a band MC), and MC-vocalist Marina Vello.
