Abby Dees isn’t afraid to talk about sex. Or frame questions for you about sex. She, unlike some of our political activists who ask that we downplay our sex, is willing to acknowledge — even celebrate — the role sex plays in sexual orientation. As she writes, “Duh.”

It is possible that the belief a huge segment of the population (instead of a relatively smaller percentage) is being denied their right to marry is making straight supporters (and those who oppose) more likely to take action on the issue, such as by donating money, volunteering, going to vote on a ballot measure, making it a factor in candidate selection, etc.

This documentary film is about tragedy, insult, and empowerment. The tragedy comes at the beginning — the horrific drowning of Kate Fleming, witnessed by her wife Charlene Strong, in a flash flood in their home. The insult comes right on tragedy’s heels as Charlene is kept from her wife’s last moments in the hospital and is ignored by the funeral planner.

Ken Mehlman left the gay closet earlier this week, asking for understanding if not support from the glbt community. That would be easier to find if Mehlman demonstrated a bit of understanding of that community and the toll that the Bush White House and RNC took on it while Mehlman was working there. No matter how much he did in his Off-The-Record political closet, it’s going to be hard to overcome what happened on the record.

Gay porn stars occupy an ambiguous and delicious role in modern gay culture: they are the gods and monsters of our sexual universe, really. The three most enticing words to hear about that man you’re ogling across the bar? “He does porn.” The most derisive insult to aim at him when he turns down your invite of company? “He does porn.”
