Not only did Tom Daley win his first Olympic gold medal at the games in Tokyo, but he also managed to make knitting cool again. The sporting superstar is swapping diving boards for our sofa this morning, to tell us about that emotional winning moment, how knitting changed his outlook on life, his hopes for more inclusive sport and why he won’t be making a splash at this year’s Commonwealth Games.
Have met Donna Mills several times and events and she is absolutely lovely – and ageless. For some reason, I only recently started following her on Instagram and I found her LGBTQ Pride Month post quite powerful.
Since 1993, the City of West Hollywood and its Lesbian and Gay Advisory Board have presented Rainbow Key Awards to those who have made outstanding contributions to West Hollywood’s LGBTQ community. These contributions, by an individual or a group, may be in many forms, including the arts, community action, humanitarian action, sports, medicine, armed services, leadership potential, benefit to the global LGBTQ community, or other ways.
It’s one of those things that comes as a big surprise because you can’t apply for it or anything. I guess you just do what you do, follow your passion, live your authentic life, do your best. Sometimes people take notice and, of course, that’s awfully nice.
I was honored last night along with Damian Pelliccione, LaShawn McGhee, Alia Daniels, and Chris Rodriguez, founders of RevryTV, a global streaming network launched in 2016 that focuses on queer content and creators; Monica Trasandes, Director of Spanish Language and Latinx Media & Representation at GLAAD; Jazzmun Crayton, Artist, Activist, Associate Director at APAIT; and Amita Swadhin, Founding Co-Director of Mirror Memoirs, a national storytelling and organizing project uplifting the narratives, healing and leadership of LGBTQI+ Black, Indigenous and of color child sexual abuse survivors in the movement to end rape culture.
Below is video of the ceremony. My award is presented by Renee Sotile and Jason Frazier at the 50:00 mark.

Last night, Beanie Feldstein talked with Seth Meyers about playing Fanny Brice in the musical Funny Girl, her family’s elaborate lies to keep her proposal a surprise and running into Kristen Wiig while being the maid of honor at her best friend’s wedding.
Well, he strips down again for the latest cover of Out magazine and an interview with editor Daniel Reynolds. NPH next stars in the Netflix series Uncoupled which drops July 29. I. Can’t. Wait.
Here are some excerpts from the cover story:
“Our life — our singular life, David and my life — is dedicated almost uniformly to our family and being parents,” explains the 49-year-old actor, whose partner of 18 years, David Burtka, has been sober for about five. “We don’t even really go to bars and stuff. We hang out with our family. We prioritize that because we love spending time with each other. The whole dating world, much less Grindr world, is very, very out of our orbit.”
On flirting: He describes himself and Burtka as “relatively flirty people” who enjoy the “charged” encounters than can come on the busy streets and subways of Manhattan. “It’s fun to walk down the street and see someone cute, and they think you’re cute, and you’d give the look back, and you go, ‘Oh, oh, they thought I was cute!’ I love to see people check out my husband,” he says, noting, “It’s titillating. We’ve always kept a bit of spark in that regard. I think it’s fun. I think it’s fun to flirt.”
On aging and his body: “I honestly feel better than I’ve felt in my whole life. As I’m aging, I’m feeling like I am more and more comfortable in my skin and my posture and my body,” he attests. “I feel like I’m in the best shape of my life, but in more practical terms — as opposed to ‘gym body’ for others.” “I think for a large chunk of my life, in my body, I felt younger than I actually was,” he adds. “I often felt insecure at gyms or at parties or socializing a lot, because I didn’t feel comfortable in my skin. Now that I’m , I’m proud of my journey, and I don’t feel like it’s ending. Knock on wood, I’m still on an upward trajectory. No hip replacements, no knee replacements, no nothing. Not yet.”
On Parenthood: His kids, as they approach their teens, are forming a very different kind of relationship with their dads. “They’re at the age right now where when we get off the subway and we’re a few blocks away from school, they don’t want us to speak,” Harris says. “Any verbalization is met with an eye roll and a, ‘Please stop talking, just please stop talking’.… We’re saying like, ‘So have a great day at school,’ they’re like, ‘Please, you’re embarrassing.’”

I’m featuring handsome athlete Maxime Cressy today because he scored a big win at Wimbledon yesterday: he beat sixth seed Felix Auger-Aliassime in the first round with an impressive display of old-fashioned serve and volley tennis. It’s the way the game used to be played at Wimbledon where players would try to get to the net the first chance they had instead of just bashing the ball from the baseline all day. Cressy charged the net 134 times in the match and won 71% of the points.
I’ve watched Cressy play a few matches at the Indian Wells tournament and loved his net rushing ways!
He spent most of his childhood in France before moving to the United States, where he played college tennis at UCLA. Cressy eventually climbed to the top spot in his team’s lineup and won the NCAA Doubles Championship in 2019.
This time last year, Cressy was World No. 153. Now he is at a career-high World No. 45 after reaching his second ATP Tour final last week in Eastbourne. In January at an ATP 250 in Melbourne, the American made his maiden championship match and tested Rafael Nadal in a tight two-set final. No player inside the Top 50 has soared more spots this year than Cressy.

Saw Hocus Pocus in 1993 in a movie theater with my little sister because we love Bette Midler.
What we didn’t know then was after my sister had children, we would end up watching this movie again and again and again – basically every Halloween – after the kids went trick or treating in the neighborhood. For them, it is the Halloween classic.
So we are all kind of excited to get together to watch Hocus Pocus 2, an original movie event, streaming September 30 on Disney Plus.
Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy reunite for the highly anticipated sequel to the perennial Halloween classic, which brings back the delightfully wicked Sanderson sisters for more comedic mayhem.
It’s been 29 years since someone lit the Black Flame Candle and resurrected the 17th-century sisters, and they are looking for revenge. Now it is up to three high-school students to stop the ravenous witches from wreaking a new kind of havoc on Salem before dawn on All Hallow’s Eve.
