We cyber-connect with Rudy Bleu in many ways. He is a very important queer Mexican living in California, and TPR is so grateful he took the time to make a list for us.
Hunx and Junx of Gravy Train fame go all girl garage group.
9) True Blood
The HBO show about Vampires and Fangbangers. Hot sex scenes, Ryan Kwanten naked half the time, homos, voodoo, murder and more. It is also funny to see Alan Ball using these vampires to address the issues and struggles that queers are still facing today.
8 ) Ste McCabe
An angry queer boy, a guitar, a drum machine sounds like a punk rock dream come true to me.
Queer Chicano Punk artist from the early LA Punk scene. I recently found out about him, his photography and his work with other queer punks from the 70′s like the members of Nervous Gender.
The self described “Lumberthug” dj/producer/rapper. Kingdom kept 2008 interesting with a new mixtape, new songs, a new club in NY, west coast tour dates, and just being his sexy self.
5) RJ Danvers
The best thing that has happened to gay porn in years. The youngest Raging Stallion exclusive and one of the hottest hairy boys out there. RJ’s blog keeps us up to date on his latest releases, his music and comic book obsessions, along with his personal pics and videos. How can you not help but be a fan.
This past year I went to an exercise class taught by Richard Simmons on my boyfriends birthday. Not only was it one of the best days this year hands down. I actually got a real work out and got harassed by Richard Simmons in a playful way of course.
It is not the best film out there but I am just grateful that this story is finally being told. It is great that a whole new generation of queers will be able to see this movie and be inspired.
Discovering Arthur Russell this year was one of the best if not the best things to happen in 2008. Watching the documentary Wild Combination helped me understand where he was coming from and his need to create so much music. It also made my jaw drop when I realized Arthur Russel was Loose Joints. The disco group that gave us the legendary track “Is it all over my face”. His contributions to the music and art world were many and I am glad he is finally getting the recognition he deserves.
1) Prop 8
Something finally angered the queers in large numbers.
