Happy New Year from Back2Stonewall.com!
Bohemian Rhapsody is an upcoming biographical drama film written by Anthony McCarten. It focuses on a 15-year period from the formation of Queen and lead singer Freddie Mercury up to their performance at Live Aid in 1985, six years before Mercury’s death. The film stars Rami Malek as Mercury, with Ben Hardy, Gwilym Lee, Joseph Mazzello, Allen Leech, and Lucy Boynton in supporting roles.
It looks amazing.
Queen played its first concert with Adam Lambert Saturday night in Kiev, Ukraine. If you couldn’t make it there, the entire concert is posted below!
You know that Freddy is smiling up there.
Big ole Daddy Bear Alec Baldwin made the above tweet this morning and some people are bent over the fact that he used the word “Queen” Why I’ll never know. Some Starbuck barrista’s DO have total attitude problems especially considering what they do for a living which is nobel and all but not a status symbol and I am sure there are some “queens” who work there especially in NYC.
Let’s face it, we all encounter Queens during the course of our day. And in this case, Queen and attitude seem to go hand-in-hand … as they frequently do. I find that people who have a problem with the term Queen are usually attitudey Queens that are afraid someone is going to call them oit for thier bitchiness.
Anything bearly Jack Donaghy wants to call me is fine. C’mon he’s a total ally of the gay community.
Get over it Queens!
Andy Cohen who’s single-handedly taken BRAVO and turned it into The Real Dreckwork of Cable Television was interviewed by The New Miami Times about ” Housewives, Elsa Patton, and Why Being Gay Is Fabulous”.
It was the usual Cohen drivel. Small town country queen makes good…..Housewives….Watch What Happens…. blah, blah, blah. When asked about being the Grand Marshal of the Miami Beach Gay Pride Parade what does gay pride mean to you? Cohen replied: “It just means being exactly who you are and being proud of it and walking tall in your shoes. Not compromising who you are”
Nice. Good answer if not a bit typical.
Then it happened.
Andy Cohen became a pretentious twat. (Shocking right?)
MNT: What gay stereotypes drive you nuts?
COHEN: So many, but I think the lisping, flamboyant queen thing is over played and it’s just lame at this point. I think now there’s so many gay people who are parents, spouses, and who have real committed long-term relationships that the idea that everyone’s in a boa dancing on a bar is, you know, very 1988.
MNT: How much importance does gay marriage have for you when electing a presidential candidate in 2012?
COHEN: Should it be the centerpiece of everyone’s campaign? No. I think Obama made a big statement with DOMA [Defense of Marriage Act]. I think that this gay marriage issue is about baby steps and I think the country’s coming around and it was courageous of Obama to come and out say we’re not going to stand behind fighting this DOMA thing anymore. I was really happy about that. I think slowly this thing is going to happen and you need to slowly gather momentum and get the American public behind it.
Cohen talks out of one side of his face and says that Pride is about being who you are and being proud of it and then, in a matter of sentences goes on to stereotype And whats even more ironic is that if I were to “stereotype” Cohen I find it ironic that he doesn’t like the exact type of “lisping flamboyant queen” that he himself is. . Self project much Andy? Or do you honestly believe that you and Jeff Lewis are the butchest in the room? Because if you do you aren’t only self loathing but also delusional. For fucks sake Bethany Frankle is more manly than you two.
And as for gay marriage and equality “going slowly”. Newsflash Cohen. It’s been over 40 years since the Stonewall Riots. How much slower can the battle for LGBT Equality go? But then again I guess he who makes a living out of being a “the lisping, flamboyant queen ” wouldn’t have much of a career left if everyone was equal and accepted.
What a bourgeois and pompous attitude and an extreme insult to everyone in the LGBT Community who are fighting everyday to gain the same rights, recognitions, and respect as everyone else which “pretentious lisping queens” like you will enjoy because others did the dirty work.
Cohen your next show should be “The Real Auntie Tom’s of West Hollywood”
Ian Benardo, a former American Idol contestant filed yesterday a 300 Million Dollar lawsuit against American Idol with the NY State Equal Employment Opportunity Commission — Benardo claims Dane Cook personally threatened him after the 2010 live show … and one of the show’s producers told Benardo that Dane wanted to “shove this mic up your ass but you would like it.”
Benardo claims when he was invited back for the 2010 finale, producers gave him similar instructions … asking him to be “outrageous” and “gay” — and that’s why he pulled the mic-stealing stunt with Dane and the the problems go back to 2006 when he first auditioned for the show — when producers “exploited … my sexual orientation” by instructing Benardo to “gay it up.”
Access Atlanta reports that: “He (Bernardo) said employees of ‘Idol’ derided him for his appearance using words like ‘fag’ and ‘homo.’ ‘The workplace,’ he said, ‘was permeated with discriminatory intimidation, ridicule, insults and hostile and offensive comments that were so severe as to alter my working conditions and create an environment that was abusive and ultimately threatening to my safety.’
Love him hate him it, thats up to you.. BUT if any of this is true nobody shoiuld be treated like that.
