"Nine" The Movie Falls Short of 10...


Audio interview with gay political humorist Kate Clinton talks about how 2009 played OUT for addressing LGBT issues @ OUTTAKE VOICES™

“Nine’’ is Rob Marshall’s first musical since “Chicago’’ which won the Best Picture Oscar in 2003. “Nine” is based on the 1982 Tony-winning show starring Raul Julia, which was based on Marcello Mastroianni's portrayal of Federico Fellini in “8 1/2.’’ With a stellar cast of Daniel Day-Lewis, Judi Dench, Marion Cotillard, Sophia Loren, Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson, Penélope Cruz & Fergie, you would think that this production would enjoy the same high accolades. Though this film is an enjoyable 1960’s Italian retro-ride it does fall short of the media hype. Definitely check it OUT. The cast is fabulous & the movie is entertaining...:)

Gay Marriage Passes in Washington D. C.

Audio interview with Lisa Krinsky, Director of LGBT Aging Project in Boston talks about gay marriage being the law in Massachusetts & how this effects the rights & benefits for the state’s LGBT seniors....:) OUTTAKE VOICES™
Washington, D.C. city council voted Tuesday to pass legislation that extends marriage equality to gay couples in the District. The bill will now be sent to District Mayor Adrian Fenty, followed by the U.S. Congress. By law, Congress has 30 days to review & overturn laws created by the District's city council. “Gay & lesbian people in our nation’s capitol are today one step closer to the important legal protections that marriage affords & that all loving & committed couples deserve,” said Jarrett Barrios, President of GLAAD, the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. “Today’s vote affirms the commitment of so many gay & lesbian couples in the District & reflects the growing support for protecting people equally under the law.” Barrios added. Updates to Come...:)

Gay Activist Lt Dan Choi Takes a Break 2010

Lt Dan Choi was admitted to the psychiatric ward at the Veteran's Administration Hospital in Brockton, Mass., telling supporters in an email that he had experienced a "breakdown & anxiety attack." He wrote on friend Pam Spaulding's website, Pam's House Blend, that he had been betrayed by "elected leaders & gay organizations as well as many who have exploited my name." This has been a very stressful time for all gay activists especially with the emotional rollercoaster ride of “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell”. We wish him the best...:) Updates to Come….

John Lennon Slain 30 Years Ago '10

On December 8th 1980 I was awaken by a phone call from my brother Paul that John Lennon had been assassination outside his apartment at the Dakota in New York City. At the time I was living on the Upper Eastside just across Central Park from where Lennon’s murder took place. Half asleep I remember saying ‘assassinated…how could that be?’ I quickly turned on the radio next to my bed to hear Lennon & McCartney music playing confirming the worst. The next day I dressed in leather & headed to the Dakota on my way to work at CBS News. The crowd had gathered & his music blared from a boom box. A producer at CBS later told me he lived across the street from the scene & had heard the shots. I had met John & Yoko on Madison Avenue the year before. We locked eyes as they approached & exchanged niceties. Thirty years later I can’t help think that it would be a better world if he were still with us.....

Baxter who has been married 3 times & mother of 5 children states “She is very happy.” FYI, Meredith Baxter's aunt was actress Anne Baxter, who starred in "All About Eve." Read More....:)
