Come Out With Pride wants you to keep dancing, but also to keep involved

Pride is a word that once carried a negative connotation. One of the original seven deadly sins, it was seen as something shameful and immoral. In the years after the 1969 riots at the Stonewall Inn in New York City, the word Pride was taken up as sign of honor, respect and loyalty by the LGBTQ community.

Pride became how we stood up for ourselves and celebrated who we are. Nearly 20 years later we celebrated the first National Coming Out Day Oct. 11, 1988. Pride was applied to something everyone in the community had to do no matter which letter you identified with in the LGBTQ spectrum. The significance of that day was to mark the one year anniversary of the 1987 National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights.

Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, Akiva Shaffer, Chris Redd, Tim Meadows, Sarah Silverman, Maya Rudolph, Joan Cusack, Imogen Poots, Bill Hader, Jimmy Fallon, Justin Timberlake, Will Arnett, Mike Birbiglia, Usher, Pink, Seal, Pharrell Williams, Snoop Dog, Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, Justin Bieber, Danger Mouse, Carrie Underwood, Nas, 50 Cent, Michael Bolton, Ringo Starr, Simon Cowell, Akon, Mariah Carrie, Adam Levine, A$AP Rocky, Mario Lopez

Popstar is three or four brilliantly stupid songs in an album full of filler. Go for the concert footage; fall asleep in between.

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping is Andy Samberg’s baby. After his Saturday Night live stint – where he and Justin Timberlake perfected musical numbers like “Dick in a Box” – Samberg’s career has had highs and lows. His series Brooklyn Nine-Nine just finished its third season on Fox. However, every so often, Samberg has also been stuck in crappy Adam Sandler flicks. One of his amazing – but less well-known – side projects is a great spoof band called The Lonely Island; here he and his band mates get to show that off. It’s the best part of this pop mockumentary.

NEW YORK (AP) – In the 1970s, Bruce Jenner was a symbol of American masculinity as an Olympic champion. Nearly 40 years later, in an extraordinary television interview, Jenner told the world that he identifies as a woman and has felt gender confusion since he was a little boy growing up in the New York suburbs.

Jenner let his hair down, literally loosening a ponytail and letting his hair flow past his shoulders, in a symbolic moment at the start of his two-hour interview with ABC News’ Diane Sawyer that was televised April 24. “Yes, for all intents and purposes, I am a woman.”

RBarr vs. Haters
With spotlights aimed to the sky beckoning the Orlando nightlife crowd like moths to the flame, RBarr had a line around the block on their opening night, May 15. With many cheers came a few jeers. Sadly, not everyone was too thrilled there was a new kid in town. A few people took to social media ripping the place apart, saying they were referred to as riff-raff and proceeded with recounts of discriminatory language launched by bar employees. That resulted in a response by the management at RBarr which read “Allow me to apologize for the sour experience you may have had when attending RBARR … Just to clarify that our staff does not use the term “fag”. It is a term full of hate and it’s use is intolerable at our establishment.” RBarr said that any personnel issues it encountered over the weekend were resolved and, despite the opening day hiccups, the crowds continued to patron throughout the weekend.

The woes of Fringe parking
With the Orlando International Fringe Festival growing in attendance every year, you’d think the home of the Fringe and the tenants would welcome the crowds to the typically empty location. But it seems that some locations can be a bit of drama queens! Fringe patrons arrived to a closed parking lot at the Rep (South side off of Princeton) opening weekend. Attendants were met with security guards and a sign that read the parking lot was reserved for people attending the Rep and not the Fringe go-ers watching shows in the two venues located within the same building as the Rep. The parking lot that shared between the Shakespeare Theater (home to most of the venues) and Orlando Museum of Art was pretty tight as well, due to Sunday services held at the OMA. Luckily, signs directed Fringe lovers to park along Mills Ave. and to the hospital’s parking garage about a block away—plus it was free parking over the weekend. Despite the money and attention Fringe brings to Loch Haven Park, one staff member said the tenants seem to fight it rather than to welcome it.
