#Resist: Writer Kevin Sessums Recalls Bette Midler at the Baths & Our Need Now For “Naked Defiance”

Mister D: Kevin went to college with me for one semester. He was so cute, good looking, and still is. He’s had a great career as a journalist, author, and magazine editor (including working for Vanity Fair. He did a huge profile on her in 1991, I believe.) I’m sure if I hadn’t of been such a shy, closeted guy that semester, we would have hooked up! LOL

10 legendary gay icons and how they earned their titles

10 legendary gay icons and how they earned their titles

The gay community has always supported fierce, outspoken women and men. These stars proved what it takes though to become a true gay icon.

The term “gay icon” is thrown around a lot lately, at least by members of the gay community. As soon as a pop star releases a dance single or pulls off some sickening stunt on stage, somebody is quick to pull the “gay icon” card. While there are many ways of earning that title, it usually involves years of dedication to the community that supported you, and proving that you care about them as much as they care about you.

35 of the most iconic movie songs of all time

Mister D: Honestly, if we are being fair, “The Rose” should have made this list, too. But good job Brinkwire!

35 of the most iconic movie songs of all time

Bette Midler, Barbara Hershey, Dyed Hair, Beaches

“Footloose” by Kenny Loggins (“Footloose”)
The movie musical quickly became one of the biggest hits when it was released in 1984, in no small part thanks to Loggins’ now-iconic song. It’s impossible not to dance when you hear it, which is probably why the song topped the charts for three weeks in a row on the US Billboard Hot 100, becoming such a massive hit that Loggins himself was blown away by its success.

God, This Is So Frustating & I Can’t Understand In The Morning LOL – The Triple Crown of Acting. That’s when a performer manages the Emmy, Oscar, and Tony for acting. To date only 24* actors have accomplished this

The Film Experience
List-Mania: Glenda Jackson & Lots of Triple-Crown Acting Trivia
Tuesday, June 12, 20

Bette Midler, Barbra Hershey, Beaches, Lounges

Since I’m on record as being annoyed that all anyone cares about is the EGOT it’s time to celebrate our preferred obsession: The Triple Crown of Acting. That’s when a performer manages the Emmy, Oscar, and Tony for acting. To date only 24* actors have accomplished this, with Glenda Jackson being the most recent recipient as of this past Sunday night at the Tony Awards. Triple Crowns have become much more commonplace in the 21st century since actors move much more fluidly through the three mediums than they did in before the turn of the century. TV has totally lost its stigma for movie stars and Broadway is more welcome to very short runs freeing major stars up to continue with their movie and TV careers without as much scheduling trauma.

The Labor party is expected to debate the issue at their upcoming national conference. Members of the party’s left faction are reportedly going to propose that people who are fleeing their home countries because of persecution over their sexuality should be more easily recognised as refugees in Australia.
