I knew nothing about this book until I saw the article. But I think we'll be hearing more about it this month.
This is the story of a little gay bunny.
A little gay bunny who belongs to Vice President Mike Pence
A little fictional gay bunny whose book is beating the memoir of James B. Comey, the former F.B.I. director, on the Amazon best-seller list.
This is the story of Marlon Bundo, the Instagram star and real-life pet of the vice president’s family, who is also the subject of two dueling children’s books released this week.
You can read the rest here. It's number 1 right now, and it's up against some stiff competition, too.
Cynthia Nixon Running For NY Governor
Even though I've never been a fan of Sex In the City because it treated gay men like pet poodles, I am a fan of Cynthia Nixon. I remember when she came out, and I thought it was huge at the time. I'm also one of those people who have no trouble separating TV shows from real life, and I think what Nixon is doing is excellent.
To announce the launch of her campaign for governor of New York, Cynthia Nixon released a video on Monday that featured footage of herself doing typical New Yorker things: dropping off her daughter at school, walking through the streets with a cup of coffee, taking the subway. Even though Nixon spoke via voice-over about addressing economic inequality and other issues, all I could think upon first viewing was: “Cool, Miranda Hobbes is running for office.” I was hardly alone.
Here's the rest. It's been interesting to see some of the reactions to this news, and it will be even more interesting to see how all this plays out.
Another Review For Love, Simon
Here's one of the better reviews I've seen for the new film, Love, Simon.
Love, Simon is many things: an upbeat and charming teen comedy, a leap forward for gay visibility in mainstream movies, and a therapeutic exercise for closeted teens who wish their parents were as accepting as Simon’s, played poignantly by Jennifer Garner and Fergie’s ex-husband. Kids will love it. Their parents will love it. Who wouldn’t love it?
You can read more about it, here. I'm just thrilled it's not another Call Me By Your Name. Gay teens need movies like this...and so do gay adults who never got to see movies like this.
