  3. DLB is so smart and articulate what a wonderful ambassador for the LGBT community. That said, the emo hairdo really looks gawd awful. 10 years from now he’s going to see photos of that night and it will be like la Streisand and the peek-a-boo pajamas.

  4. Loved it! But, WTF, Gayle. "Dustin, what did it mean to you when Oprah talked to you?" Way to bring it back to Oprah. Step out of Oprah's coochie, Gayle.

  6. I completely disagree with you, GGREEN. Lance Black's emo haircut only makes him even more adorable. But he is, as you said, smart, articulate and a great ambassador for our community.

  8. I love this guy. Just the symbolism of it all - coming from a church that heavily funded Prop 8. I wish him luck on 'The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test,' which is going to be a tall order. At least he's not playing it safe.

  9. Why didn't he do the show in person...was Brent Corrigan forbidding him to leave...isn't he dating him?

  10. THE Brent Corrigan, Alan? That's news to me...
