Throwback Thursday: “Maude” fights for gay rights

It’s become well-known that the late, great Beatrice Arthur was a staunch supporter of the LGBTQ community. After her death in 2009, the two-time Emmy winner left an endowment to the Ali Forney Center, an organization for homeless LGBT youth in New York City. In turn, a new 18-bed shelter on the Lower East Side, was named in her honor. This clip is from her first classic sitcom, Maude, and it features the title character taking her bigoted next door neighbor Arthur (Conrad Bain) to a gay bar.

Here is official trailer for “The Fabulous Four” starring Bette Midler, Bette Midler, Megan Mullally and Sheryl Lee Ralph

Love a Bette Midler movie and wish she’d done more during her illustrious career. Maybe The Fabulous Four starring Bette, Susan Sarandon, Megan Mullally and Sheryl Lee Ralph will land in the hit column like some of her past comedies including First Wives Club, Ruthless People, Hocus Pocus, Down and Out in Beverly Hills, Outrageous Fortune, Big Business and Parental Guidance.

The Fabulous Four follows three life-long friends (Sarandon, Mullally, and Ralph) who travel to Key West, Florida to be bridesmaids in a surprise wedding of their college girlfriend Marilyn (Midler). Once there, sisterhoods are rekindled, the past rises up again in all its glory, and there are enough sparks, drinks and romance to change all their lives in ways they never expected.

The Fabulous Four, directed by Jocelyn Moorhouse, opens in theaters on July 26, 2024.

Jonathan Bailey profiled on “CBS Sunday Morning”

Heartthrob Jonathan Bailey seems to have mastered the art of on-screen romance, from the Regency bodice-ripper Bridgerton, to the fictional love affair between closeted Capitol Hill staffers at the height of McCarthyism in Fellow Travelers. CBS Sunday Morning correspondent Michelle Miller talks with the openly gay actor about his roles on stage and screen (including the upcoming screen version of Wicked), and his desire to be “completely authentic.”

Happy 81st birthday to Barry Manilow!

Looks like he made it!

Barry Manilow turns 81 today and so I thought I’d share some of his classic songs. There are so many so sometimes you just gotta make those hard choices.

I feel so much better celebrating Barry as an openly gay man which he has been run recent years. He has said that if he had come out during the height of his popularity in the 1970s and 80s, it would have killed his career.

Probably true.

I suppose better late than never!

Her other Broadway shows included The Rink, The Visit, Nine, Jerry’s Girls, Merlin, Bajour, The Mystery of Edwin Drood and Chita Rivera: The Dancer’s Life, among others.
