WOW, AN OPENLY GAY ACTOR?

TVGuide.com: Actors are always complaining that Hollywood is ageist. Does it scare you to be so open about your age when you could pass for someone much younger?

Millegan: That's one thing that I am really proud of. When I got here people were telling me to lie about my age and my sexual orientation — I'm gay. But I didn't hide either one and I still got a show — and I got a straight role. In fact, every role I auditioned for was straight.

TVGuide.com: Zack does seem to love the ladies. In fact, he seems to have a major crush on his boss, Bones.

Millegan: There is certainly something there.

TVGuide.com: Think maybe she'll end up with Zack instead of David Boreanaz's FBI agent?

Millegan: That would be something! Zack's definitely not in a relationship. In the episode "A Boy in a Tree," he asked the gang for sexual advice because he had slept with Naomi in paleontology but she never called him back.

TVGuide.com: Were you ever as geeky as your TV alter ego?

Millegan: I don't know. I never considered myself a nerd, but others may have. I performed in community theater and was valedictorian of my high school. Does that make me a geek?

TVGuide.com: Definitely. You've done theater your whole life. Do you miss the stage?


Millegan: Yeah, but TV is so much easier. When you do a show, especially a musical, you wake up every morning terrified that your voice won't work. On stage, the audience sees everything. On Bones, I look into the camera and talk. If I mess up, they'll edit it out. Also, TV is way, way, way better paying.

TVGuide.com: What's the feeling on the set regarding Bones' new schedule?

Millegan: Originally, we were supposed to have the Tuesday slot after American Idol that helped make House a hit. I don't want to speak for everybody else in the cast but we were disappointed when we lost that. Oh wait, I did just speak for everybody else. But even though we're on Wednesdays, I still think there's room for our show. We have that American Idol "muscle" before us. That's going to get us more viewers, especially all those people who can't find their remote controls.

Bi History Moments: Anything That Moves, Spring 1994 (bisexual manifesto and cover)

Anything That Moves  was a literary, journalistic, and topical magazine published in the  United States  from 1990 to 2002. [1]  It was created as an expansion of the  San Francisco   Bay Area Bisexual Network  (BABN) newsletter by BABN member, Karla Rossi, in collaboration with bisexual and bi-friendly editors, writers, and artists to become a full 64-page magazine with an international subscriber base. The complete title of the magazine,  Anything That Moves: Beyond the Myths of Bisexuality , was purposely chosen for its controversial nature, while its tag line indicated a clear intent to challenge stereotypes of bisexual identities and behaviors. The magazine took its name from the  stereotype  depicting bisexuals as willing to have sex with "anything that moves". [2] The magazine's mission was to confront and redefine concepts of  sexuality  and  gender , to defy stereotypes and broad definitions of bisexuals and to combat  biphobia . - Wikipedia Anything That

No, I didn’t attempt to steal the bisexual pride flag

No, I didn’t attempt to steal the bisexual pride flag (but people I knew said I did, so did "the news") By the artist formerly known as Faith Cheltenham, and the activist formerly known as thefayth With my stepping away from bisexual community; I am returning home to those who love me; not something always found in bisexual, or LGBTQIA communities. The true upheaval for me personally is most profound in that I turn away from the concept of giving, entirely. thefayth is no more as I must admit I have no faith in humans, if I ever did. Further, I decline to serve with my body, my mind or spirit to provide such faith to humans without benefit to me first and always. My bigger shame? Direct donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to advocacy between 2004-2017 focused on bi communities worldwide, while also working for free at same time; I should have picked one or the other! My shame is particular, in that I feel, I may have been treated better if I’d been giving only t

STATEMENT BY THEFAYTH ABOUT THE BISEXUAL COMMUNITY

STATEMENT BY THEFAYTH ABOUT THE BISEXUAL COMMUNITY By thefayth, BiNet USA President With additional edits/support from Juba Kalamka, BiNet USA VP Bisexual communities have been notified of my intent to remove my networks, support and help from those who center white supremacy or practice trans exclusionary radical feminism. Simply put, I do not believe bisexual exclusionary communities (or beci's) to represent the bisexual community. When I emailed, messaged and tweeted at "Jayne Shea" and messaged her last Tuesday, I did so because I'd seen Seattle continuing to thrive with TERF's, or people who exclude trans people. It occurred to me, that the same group reported to BiNet USA for allowing cis only women was possibly closely associated with Jayne Shea; this has now been confirmed. And now the rest is history, Black-bisexual-intersex-trans history as I, thefayth, recently became more public in my transition from assumed cis female to known intersex trans multi-gen
