Please Goddess, Let Streisand Direct Again!

--Gypsy with Barbra Streisand?!

WE TOLD you a little while back that Harvey Weinstein had a dream - to remake "Gypsy" on the big screen. His dream included Catherine Zeta-Jones as Rose Hovick, who inadvertently pushed one daughter, Dainty June (later June Havoc ), away from her, and thrust the other into burlesque and world fame as Gypsy Rose Lee. Well, ev

en though Harvey doesn't own the rights to the Arthur Laurents/Stephen Sondheim/Jule Styne classic - as Mr. Laurents was quick to point out - HW continues to dream. Big-time.

Now I hear that Zeta-Jones is not the only woman on the list to play Rose.

Oh, shall I drag this out further?


Barbra Streisand, folks. The Legend herself. Are you kvelling? Are you plotzing? Are your knees like buttah?

Given her own personal issues with a mother who did not push her or encourage her - hence Barbra's need to excel, excel, excel - Streisand could bring something quite devastating to the mama role of all time. Unless she wants to tackle "Medea."

No more "Fockers" - sing out, Barbra!

Barbra is an AWESOME director, actor, and singer...I would DIE if she directed Gypsy!

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 FranciscoBay 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

No Apologies for Queer White Tears - 2016 BlaQOUT Keynote

No Apologies for Queer White Tears By Faith Cheltenham Delivered as a keynote address to the 2016 BlaQOUT Conference at UC Riverside on April 9th, 2016.
Black girl drinking White People Tears Gif White tears is a term that has a startling effect on white folks. Developed over time to describe the phenomenon of white people being upset at the very act of discussing race, it’s evolved into a funny yet, extremely effective way to describe white people’s discomfort in discussing the very racism they perpetuate.
One of the earliest articles available online about white tears written by a person of color is the 2007 College Student Affairs Journal article “When White Women Cry: How White Women’s Tears Oppress Women of Color” by Mamta Motwani Accapadi. In the article, Accapadi describes a case study of a white woman bursting into tears when being pressed by a woman of color about diversity resources at the college that employs them both. Instead of working on the issues affecting students, the c…
