Irish LGBT youth and parents coalition call for a Yes vote in the forthcoming marriage equality referendum. The BeLonG To lead coalition call on everyone to talk to their family and friends about why marriage equality is so important and to work for a Yes vote
What is the Supreme Court thinking about marriage? They just heard oral argument from gay couples, from the states that want to preserve their bans, and from the US Government. And we can make a couple guesses about what’s going through their heads.
LGBT Aging Expert Joy Silver Discusses Senior Issues with Princeton Community Television’s ‘Only Seniors’ (video)
I had the pleasure of meeting Joy Silver, LGBT Aging Expert and President/CEO of Rainbow Vision Properties, this past Tuesday at the White House National LGBT Elder Housing Summit. Here’s a video of Joy speaking with Tom Callahan of Only Seniors, a program from Princeton Community Television.
I’ll be talking soon with Joy on an upcoming Aged to Perfection podcast. Stay tuned! – Mark/Editor
Joy Silver is a noted speaker and multi-media personality on issues of Diversity and Healthcare in Senior Living. She spoke on the first LGBT HUD panel held December 2011 in Washington DC, and presented for the 2013 American Planning Association in April entitled “Addressing the Needs of LGBT Seniors.” She has been interviewed for Only Seniors, a Cable TV Program “Even Fabulous Gets Old” and has just returned from the White House LGBT Elder Housing Summit, held February 10 ,2015.
Another great one from Steve Hayes. From the YouTube description:
It’s high hilarity as Lauren Bacall, Betty Grable and Marilyn Monroe play three gold diggers on the make in Jean Negulesco’s “How To Marry A Millionaire”. Shot in glorious Technicolor and cinema-scope it’s a love letter to Manhattan and three of the funniest and most glamorous gals that ever hit Hollywood. Rounding out the cast are Cameron Mitchell, Rory Calhoun, David Wayne, Alec D’Arcy and William Powell as their intended spouses with able comic support from Fred Clark. The girls are gorgeous, the settings are fabulous, the dialogue witty and sophisticated. It’s the perfect way to ring in the New Year.
When L.A. Weekly was allowed to take its video camera inside the one-of-a-kind gay wing of Los Angeles Men’s Central Jail, the first comment the videographer heard was “I love her shoes.” Then an impromptu fashion show broke out as gay men and transgender women romped between metal bunk beds showing off their hand-sewn mini-dresses and shabby chic jail couture fashioned from sheets and prison blues. It’s not shanks and muggings, but smuggled makeup and tears.
An amazing acceptance speech.
