As the keyboardist for Faith No More, Roddy Bottum bent the stereotypical image of the "gay piano player." His melodic piano capped the band's monster hit "Epic," which until his piano solo is a rollicking metal-rap song. Bottum plays the melody at the part near the video's end where a fish is flipping around on the dirt.

Gina Gutierrez was born in San Francisco, and lived only an hour away from it throughout her teen years. In 1990, while a senior in high school, she was prominently featured in the educational film "Gay Youth." She then attended Hampshire College, in the queer-friendly Amherst, Mass. But now, Gutierrez is living in a small town in Puerto Rico. Her close-cropped or shaved head seen in the video, is now waist-length. Her "little boy body" in the video, as she calls it, is now more filled out.

"Are you taping, I hope?" Camille Paglia asks instantly upon answering the phone in her office in the Humanities Department at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia.
Initially, it seems like an odd question, until the rapid-fire magical mystery tour through Paglia's thought process on gay teens begins.
Tonight I had the incredible pleasure of hearing this woman read from her work.
Her poetry is oddly linguistically empowering. It made me wish I could be a poet (like her). At the same time, it made me think that I could be one, too. This is not to denigrate her craftsmanship or talent. It's just been a long time since I've heard words that sought to involve me in such a way.
Read on for a fun-filled, albeit frostbitten. day!
American Idol :
is the lamest show I have ever seen. Vote off the ugly and the bad voice, and in with the pretty with awesome voice.
Very fair competetive talent with multitasking jogging with various of contestests. In the end most will win, cuz its fair.
I can't wait until I get to go to college next year. Maybe then I will actually be able to come out to people because my parents and relatives will never find out. I just wish I could be the person that I truly am. Everyone keeps saying that living in Vermont and being homosexual must be a dream. Isn't all that it is cracked up to be. I don't know how the civil union thing got passed. Barely anyone is accepting of those that are different. But when I grow up and if I still live in Vermont I will be able to get a civil union easily. Maybe there is a plus to living in Vermont.
Lol...I have "Tasha L/S Rachael" on my hand and "You're a naugthy girl. Go to my room." on my other. Chris asked why I had Rachael on my hand, and I said that was my g/f's name, and he went "You're a lesbian?" He said it out loud, and I laughed. I told him I was bisexual, and he asked if he could watch me and my girlfriend, lol...
Jonathan was feeling on me yesterday in tutoring, hehe..
Me and Danielle were making fun of Kenny all day. (What is surpising is we were enemies like a month ago.)
I guess this is the start of my weblog. The reason I started here is because this seems to be the perfect place where I can actually write truthfully, without having to cover up the fact that I'm gay/bi/straight-curious, whatever the hell I am. As you can see I don't even know. I plan on updating often so stop by once in a while to see what I have to say.
