  4. That song really killed me when I saw Kinky Boots -- it gives the whole show a deeper meaning.

  6. I liked Stark's singing wardrobe better in Die Mommie Die. Just a strategically placed guitar.

  9. Ignore that last question...(which strangely posted twice). Wikipedia tells me Stark Sands is married.

  10. @peterparker -- gay people get married (in some states and several countries).

  11. During the Q & A after the Die Mommie Die Castro Theater screening at Frameline Festival, Stark announced to the crowd that he was "straight and has a girlfriend." He didn't make many new friends that night.

  12. Stark Sands is the real deal.
    Though upstaged by the "showy" performance of Billy Porter, Stark Sands well deserves his nomination and my vote (if I were eligible to vote)
    He hods his own and MORE.
