Gay Agenda: 10 Things We're Eyeing In October

Gay Agenda: 10 Things We're Eyeing In October

VIA Festival

Oct1

Taking place in Chicago, this audio-visual festival brings together a number of LGBTQ acts for an extended weekend of exploring what’s new in art and music. Among the artists performing are Cakes Da Killa, L-Vis 1990, Mike Q, and Mykki Blanco. (Chicago, Oct. 1-5)

Gone Girl

Oct10

While the though of Ben Affleck doing full frontal is enough to make anyone excited, it’s the superb cast, which includes Neil Patrick Harris and Kim Dickens, and execution of this book adaptation that sold us. The David Fincher-directed film is funny as it is dark and twisted. When it comes to marriage, this is one f—ed up pair. (Theaters everywhere, Oct. 3)

Stevie Nicks, 24 Karat Gold: Songs From the Vault

Oct9

The eighth studio album from Stevie Nicks, 24 Karat Gold, features updated versions of unreleased demos that former Fleetwood Mac vocalist recorded between 1969 and 1987. The first two singles have rekindled our love for the singer. Read more about Nicks in our exclusive interview with her here. (iTunes, Oct. 7)

American Horror Story: Freak Show

Oct7

Not that we need to mention this show (because it’s surely on everyone’s calendar by now), but the fourth season of Ryan Murphy’s anthology series looks to be the best yet. Sarah Paulson has two heads, Kathy Bates has a beard, Angela Bassett has three breasts, and Jessica Lange looks flawless. Need we say more? (FX, Oct. 8)

True Trans With Laura Jane Grace

Oct6

The 10-episode series follows Laura Jane Grace, a pioneer and lead singer of Against Me!, who came out as a transgender woman in 2012. The show will explore Grace’s decision to come out as well stories from other transgender people throughout the country. (AOL, Oct. 10)

Marry Me

Oct5

While most of the Happy Endings cast is back on TV, we’re most thrilled about the return of Casey Wilson, who has teamed up with her husband and Happy Endings creator David Caspe for this hilarious series about a couple coping with the next stage in their relationship. Adding to the laughs are Ken Marino as Wilson’s boyfriend, Dan Bucatinsky, one of her two dads named Kevin, and Danielle Schneider, who previously shared the screen with Wilson on The Hotwives of Orlando. (NBC, Oct. 13)

Dear White People

Oct4

From Justin Simien comes this bitingly hilarious satire about the current state of race relations in the “Obama Age.” The film was a hit at Sundance and is now making its way to theaters across the nation for what’s sure to spark a lot of chatter after the end credits stop rolling. (Limited release, Oct. 17)

Aretha Franklin, Aretha Franklin Takes On The Great Diva Classics

Oct8

The queen of soul sure knows how to command attention. Aretha Franklin wowed fans when she unexpectedly dropped a cover of Adele’s unstoppable 2010 hit, “Rolling In the Deep,” proving that she can make her mark on any song. The single comes from a collection of modern covers that will surely blow the originals out of the water. (iTunes, Oct. 21)

Web Therapy

Oct3

While everyone’s buzzing about the return of The Comeback, it’s easy to forget that Lisa Kudrow is back on TV with the fourth season of Web Therapy. The show, which was created and is directed by Dan Bucatinsky and Don Roos, will feature guest appearances from Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Allison Janney, and Gwyneth Paltrow with Victor Garber and Lily Tomlin reprising their roles. (Showtime, Oct. 22)

Horns

Oct2

We’re a big fan of Daniel Radcliffe’s post-Harry career and his latest entry features the former chid star as a antihero with a pair of horns accused of murdering his girlfriend. The spooky film has us delighted by how wicked it is. Consider us horn-ed up for this one. (Theaters everywhere, Oct. 31)
