Closing out the Summer Season...

It seems that the scene has witnessed a true resurgence as of late…

Indeed, this new found revival appears to carry a very real sense of possibility & a feeling of anticipation for what the future may hold. Like the phoenix rising from a period that was caught in relative obscurity, there seems to be a new level of stature that's beginning to quench the thirst of many & usher in a new era.

Hey gays! Super gay (and lesbian, too!) comedy THIS SUNDAY in B'more, then Rehoboth!

Pssst!

This is *actual gay comedy* with actual gay (and they're REALLLY GAY) comedians, folks. You heard right. Actual gays! Doing THREE WHOLE shows, even!

Translation: this is NOT some sophomoric straight asshole being "ironic" or "edgy" by acting out every single stupid stereotype about gay men and expecting us all to say ha ha ha! I am so AMUSED that a heterosexual dude is playing up all ugly things gay so that he can a) make money and b) make money and c) oh yeah, MAKE MONEY.

Where was I? Oh yeah, money. These shows are bargains, people. Three fantastic queer comedians for awfully damn cheap.

First there's kickass cable TV and Logo Network regular ANT, then the aptly named (and ridiculously cute) Jason Dudey, and my own personal favorite badass dyke comedian Sabrina Matthews. I can personally vouch for her stupidly high stage show laugh-levels, and I'm not just saying that because her Comedy Central tv special was AWESOME (although it did crack me the hell up).

Flyers after the cut. Because I care, people.

Prop 8 UPDATE: SF Mayor Asked Court to Delay Prop 8 Ruling

Okay folks, this is the latest. I can't figure out if this makes me feel hopeful or hopeless.

EXCLUSIVE: SF Mayor Asked Court To Delay Prop 8

Confidential sources close to San Francisco City Hall told Towleroad's Corey Johnson that the California Supreme Court was prepared to release its opinion on Proposition 8 tomorrow, but decided to delay the ruling after a call from Mayor Gavin Newsom.

"Newsom reached out to the Supreme Court and asked them to hold off releasing their decision so it did not coincide with the White Night riots," said our source.

As mentioned earlier, a ruling Thursday would have fallen on the 30th anniversary of the San Francisco riots, which were set off when the court handed down the most lenient decision possible (voluntary manslaughter) against Dan White for the murders of supervisor Harvey Milk and Mayor George Moscone. The ensuing riots in San Francisco on May 21, 1979 caused hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage.


Source: http://www.towleroad.com/2009/05/exclusive-sf-mayor-gavin-newsom-asked-court-to-delay-prop-8-ruling.html


Rest assured, there WILL be a Day of Decision celebration or demonstration when the CA Supreme Court makes the announcement. Traditionally, the court releases decisions on Mondays and Thursdays, and the deadline is June 3. So the remaining possible dates are:

Tues May 26 (because of the holiday)
Thurs May 28
Mon June 1


I'll send out the notice as soon as I get it, but for now there is no set date for the Day of Decision. I'll keep you all posted!

Prop 8 decision coming TOMORROW, head to DUPONT at 8:30!

Folks:

It looks like the Day of Decision for Prop 8 is coming down TOMORROW, Thursday May 21.

We'll either celebrate or demonstrate at DUPONT CIRCLE, 8:30PM. Bring signs, bullhorns, bring whatever (and whomever) you can!

Tomorrow is also the 30th anniversary of the White Night Riots in San Francisco which occurred after Dan White was given the most lenient sentence possible after murdering Harvey Milk and Mayor Moscone.

In addition, Friday would have been Harvey's 79th birthday.
