(TIME-Warp) a WEEK of LOSS and RETROSPECTIVE!

This week we pay homage to 2 anniversaries; the 28th anniversary (July 25) of the Death of Studio 54 owner, Steve Rubell and the 27th anniversary (July 28) of the infamous 175-photo retrospective of the work of the late-Robert Mapplethorpe at the Whitney Museum in New York City.

Mapplethorpe worked primarily in the studio, particularly towards the end of his career. Common subjects include flowers, especially orchids and calla lilies, and celebrities, including Andy Warhol, Deborah Harry, Richard Gere, Peter Gabriel, Grace Jones, and Patti Smith. Smith was a longtime roommate of Mapplethorpe and a frequent subject in his photography, including a stark, iconic photograph that appears on the cover of Smith's first album, Horses.


Other work includes homoerotic and BDSM acts (including coprophagia), and classical nudes. Mapplethorpe's X Portfolio series sparked national attention in the early 1990s when it was included in The Perfect Moment, a traveling exhibition funded by National Endowment for the Arts.

(TIME Warp) MLK and Gay Rights!


From Queerty  Jan 19, 2009:

Unfortunately, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., whose birthday we honor today, was assassinated before the gay rights movement became a force on the American stage, so we’ll never know for sure what he may have done to further the cause of gay and lesbian rights had he lived. The person who knew him best, his wife, Coretta Scott King, was certain, however, that King’s legacy was equality for all. To that end, she dedicated much of her time to LGBT equality issues before her death in 2006.

(TIME Warp) The AB101 Veto Riots; 25 years later!


In 2011, the GLBT History Museum in San Francisco held a program called “All the Rage: Stories From the AB101 Veto Riot,” featuring a documentary short about the queer riots in San Francisco in 1991 and a panel with organizers of the event twenty years ago and eyewitness accounts.  Called the AB 101 Veto Riot, it “ended with the police in retreat and a state office building in flames.”

I had never heard of the AB 101 Veto Riot before I got this press release, or the other two that accompany it in a trio, the Compton’s Cafeteria Riot of 1966 and the White Night Riot of 1979. It occurs to me that maybe no one has told you, either. Most of us got through school without even hearing about Stonewall, but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to hear about. In honor of the people who put their safety on the line so that our rights had to be recognized, let’s take a moment to remedy that.

(GAY DAYS) Lovebirds Sonny and Will give each other engagement rings – tell his parents; Gabi Slaps Sonny!


Will and Sonny are deliriously happy and give engagement rings to each other, as They happily share the news with Will’s parents who have very different reactions. Lucas is immediately thrilled while Sami is not – at first.

Will makes a few speeches – and they do come off as speeches – defending their love and Sami chills out.

Favorite line is from Will to Sonny: ‘Now that we’ve survived a baby, blackmail, bullets – you know, all the big stuff – there’s nothing that can prepare you for my mother in wedding planner mode.’

Gabi is falling again for Nick’s “I’ve changed” act and Sonny is not having it.

He really gives her a piece of his mind as the two absolutely have it out. Gabi even slaps Sonny.

Favorite Line of the Day is EJ’s reaction to Will and Sonny becoming engaged: “WHAT? REALLY? That is fantastic! I’m so happy! I’m so happy!”

(BEST of 2012) 150 Game Changing Wins that Made 2012 the Gayest Year Ever!

-1

A remarkably short four decades ago, the Stonewall Revolt of 1969 opened the flood gates for LGBT rights. The closet, so sturdy for so long, started being swept away in a rush of pride. Still, LGBT Americans lived in a culture of "tolerance," a popular euphemism for enduring.

(SOAP Q) GAY DAYS: Will and Sonny Make Love and Bask B4 Baby Shocker!

If you were thinking we were going to actually see Will and Sonny make love like we saw Will and Gabi doing so, forget about it.

These are the gays so these things must be handled delicately.

But we do see the moments leading up to it and we see the sweet time in bed afterward.

In these moments, Chandler Massey is so beautiful to watch – how he looks at Sonny, the way he talks convincingly about how he finally knows who he is. Then there’s Gabi and her damned pregnancy!

(SOAP Q) GAY DAYS: Will and Sonny patch things up and are heading to bed – but Gabi’s pregnant!


A great episode featuring a sweet make-up (and some making out) between Sonny and Will who clear the air. Will is adorable as he apologizes to Sonny and is so relieved to be getting a second chance. Let’s savor these scenes because things are about to get pretty rocky for our favorite Salem couple.

Gabi is, as we feared, pregnant with Will’s child – the result of their fateful one-night stand when both had hit low points.

Also, Will’s dad continues to be a big jerk about Will and Sonny having sex so he might not want to watch these scenes or the ones to be aired today!

(SOAP Q) GAY DAYS: Will deals with being arrested for murder!


 


Half the town wanted to kill Stefano DiMera but it is Will who has been arrested for his murder.

His mother, Sami, wonders if her son could indeed be the killer and refuses to let her sister, Carrie, represent him because she’s still mad at her for becoming involved with her estranged husband Rafe. SELFISH!

(SOAP Q) GAY DAYS: EJ confronts Will!


Turns out that Will wanted Rafe to overhear and that he was put up to it by evil Stefano.
It seems kinda far-fetched but it does provide some nice complications for Will and his relationships with EJ and with Sami.

(SOAP Q) GAY DAYS; Will talks to Gabi and to Marlena about coming out to his parents!




Will  continues his coming out process. He still has not patched things up with his mother, Sami, who ran out of apartment when he told her he was gay.
He ran into ex-girlfriend Gabi at Horton Town Square (where else?) and old her about Sami’s reaction.

The highlight of this episode is that we get our first Will and Marlena scene in awhile. Marlena had been presumed dead the was hiding in a safe house pretending to be dead (God that storyline is stupid!) so there was no opportunity for heart-to-hearts between grandmother and grandson.

Will tells her about coming out to his parents and he is clearly hurt over Sami’s reaction. Marlena knows this and she knows her daughter. She tells Will: “You know what? She will come around when she realizes it’s not about her. Right now, I’m sure Sami thinks your being gay has something to do with her as a parent. But you, are living your truth. And that’s what’s really important.” SO GOLDEN!

(SOAP Q) GAY DAYS: Will’s mom Sami continues to mishandle her son’s coming out!


 


In these scenes from yesterday’s episode of Days of Our Lives, Sami’s ex EJ and her other ex Lucas (Will’s dad) are more focused on Will and what he is going through than Sami who is more concerned about not being the first to know and what her not knowing says about her as a mother.

But Lucas has been pretty stellar and pretty honest with his son who can have no doubt that his father loves him.
