Director Jim Fall released this image made by Jayson Rivest announcing that Trick 2 is being made and set for release in 2019, just in time for the original’s 20th anniversary. HOLY HELL, I’m excited! Jim Hall is the director of the first Trick and I absolutely love this movie! It is the first gay movie I saw when I was younger and it was also one of the few movies that made me feel so much hope about my sexuality. No details have been given as of yet to the plot, or if the original main characters and their actors would be a part of this, with the exception that Drag Queen – Coco Peru will be reprising her role and that Tori Spelling would be making a cameo as well. The image released does show the Los Angeles city skyline over the New York City skyline. This could be showing homage to the original movie taking place in NYC while taking place in a new setting. Or maybe the movie will take place in both cities this time around. The main character of Gabe could have became a successful play writer and moved to California. So many possibilities! I can’t wait to see this.

This is Jim Fall himself below…woof! Just saying!


Wow, prepare to cry at this trailer. The movie Boy Erased is based on the book Boy Erased: A Memoir which is an memoir based on writer Garrard Conley, the son of a Baptist pastor. In the movie as in the book, Garrard writes about himself when was 19 years old and asked to either leave his family, friends, and faith or go through conversion therapy for his sexuality. This movie stars Lucas Hedges as Garrard, Nicole Kidman as his mother and Russell Crowe as his father.


Just the music alone make me start to tear up while watching this trailer. I can only imagine watching the full movie in theaters. Boy Erased is in theaters on November 2, 2018.


There is a children’s book based on Harvey Milk and the origin of the Rainbow Pride Flag of the LGBT community. This book is so deeply moving and such a powerful message aimed at children. That does not mean that adults cannot appreciate it as well though. Check out my thoughts on this book in the attached video.

This was written by Rob Sanders and illustrated by Steven Salerno.

If you are interested in this book, it is available in digital format for the Kindle or paperback version over on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Pride-Story-Harvey-Milk-Rainbow/


I have posted in the past about Joe Phillips, but he deserves repostings. His work is off the charts in terms of how phenomenal his skills are as an artist. This is not to mention that he exemplifies his work in modes of realism that represent subjects that are based on friends and those individuals that he has met in his life. I have been lucky to meet him several times are varying conventions and am proud to call him a friend. He has worked on many Pride projects in the past that are beyond beautiful.


Hey, who is that dorky guy (in the above picture) in the red tank top with his mouth open? Anyways, below are a few of his masterpieces that he has used in various media outlets.

His website is currently under production, but when he does update it, you can check it out over at: www.JoePhillips.com






Pride Month has been celebrated since 1970, after the Stonewall Riots in New York that took place the previous year. It was not the first LGBT Protest, but it was memorable and marked an event where Transgender/Gay/Lesbian population said this is enough bullying. The celebration of this month has been blurred through the decades with much more emphasis on partying rather than remembering that the LGBT community has been and still is harassed, scrutinized, belittle and continually oppressed. We show Pride in ourselves, our community and we are not any less than others. Everyone be safe.

Below is a picture of the first Pride Parade back in 1970.


I figured the cast of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia at a previous year’s Pride Parade was worth a re-post, because they’re awesome!


May 22, 1930 is the day that Harvey Milk was born. It is also Harvey Milk Day. Harvey was a gay rights activist in the 1970s who was the first openly elected gay city supervisor in San Francisco. He is responsible for passing several gay rights ordinances and is celebrated as one of the most famous openly gay politicians within the US. I admit I knew little about Harvey Milk before the making of the movie Milk, starring Sean Penn, but today is his day. This was made by the Harvey Milk Foundation, which itself was founded in 2009 Stuart Milk, Harvey’s nephew and Harvey’s political aide, Anne Kronenberg.


If you are unaware, there is a children’s book titled Pride: The Story of Harvey Milk and the Rainbow Flag that was written Rob Sanders and illustrated by Steven Salerno. This is a great story on Harvey and talks about the positives of love, hope, equality, and pride. I just received this myself and will be doing a video on it soon. Check it out when you get a chance. It is available on Amazon on both digital and printed formats: https://www.amazon.com/dp/0399555315/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_3rcbBbGTHPACJ


Unfortunately Harvey was assassinated in 1978, after only serving 11 months in office. In his time, he influenced many people to sway from hate and inspired others to help with the rights of all LGBT of the world. This is not a national holiday or even a day that many even know about about, but it is something to think about, even just for a few seconds. Harvey should be recognized for his achievements. It may seem insignificant, but I just bought a book of Harvey Milk stamps.
This stamp is available on the USPS website: www.Store.usps.com/store/product/buy-stamps/harvey-milk-S_472004.


Have you heard of Qreel? I just found out about this today. It is an LGBTQ streaming services for movies and TV shows. The site is brand new so the selection is not huge as of yet but there is content that I have never heard about. Hopefully more will be added as the service starts to develop. Netflix and other streaming services also have some LGBTQ content, but this one does seem a bit more focused and offers a lot more from what I can see. I have not gotten a subscription, but I am considering it as I would like to see some of the documentaries that they have.

What do you think of this? Check out their site over at: Qreel


If you are not aware of this, December 1st is World AIDS Day. Many have been lost in this fight against this illness and my heart goes out to all who have been affected by it. I stated this last year, but one of my uncles contracted the HIV virus back in the early 1990s and he developed full blown AIDS in a very short period of time. Remembering him is quite painful as I saw how horrible he deteriorated after such a short period of time. He was my only gay relative and he was quite a wonderful person.


Many living with HIV currently have a much better chance at living long full lives than those from the past, but even still, this is a very dangerous virus. The LGBT community was hit harshly back in the 1980-90s. I know many others who have lost loved ones and remember this much clearer than I do myself. Currently there are 36 million people around the world who are living with HIV. The CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) have stated that minorities are much more likely to be infected with gay/bisexual African American men having the highest rate of infection more so than any other population. So many people have been lost.


Besides using protection such as condoms, there is a drug to help prevent HIV known as Truvada also known as PrEP. It can be difficult to obtain a prescription from your doctor, but your health is worth the hassle. You should also know your status. Get tested regularly. It is free. Simply Go to FreeHIVTest.net to find an clinic or location in your area. If you are HIV positive and feel depressed, know that there are lots of counseling services out there for you. Go to: CareResource.org for more information.

I will not speak on this, but those out there living with HIV or those that know others that have been lost, be strong.

Admittedly, I didn’t watch Will and Grace when it aired originally. I did catch some eps here and there in the rerun universe, but I never saw the series all the way through. To be honest, I didn’t even like the characters of Will and Grace that much. I liked Karen and Jack far more than the series namesake characters. When I saw that the new series was going to make a come back, I was somewhat happy but I still have not actually watched the first episode yet. I can not even explain why I was never that curious about the original series and watching it all the way through like I have with other sitcoms. Do you like the series? Is the new series worth checking out?
