Today goes down in the history books and most appropriately on Harvey Milk’s 81st Birthday, the Trevor Project’s call center is officially open. About 1 hour ago phone lines officially opened in Harvey Milk’s Camera Shop and Former Campaign Headquarters. It is a glorious day. The ribbon was cut at the door step of the new call center by Mark Leno, Cleve Jones, Anne Kronenberg, Danny Nicoletta, Frank Robinson, Dustin Lance Black, Armistead Maupin, Christopher Turner and Stuart Milk and many more note worthy came out for the cause. The hot-line provides crisis and suicide prevention counseling to LGBT and questioning youth 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, and this marks a historic moment because now those calls can be answered in the same place where Harvey took these kinds of calls.


After the ribbon was cut and history was made, politicians, reporters, volunteers and supporters all sang Happy Birthday to Harvey, which echoed down Castro Street. Harvey would have loved it!

Trevor Project will use the space rent-free since HRC paid for the build out and has agreed to donate $10,000 annually to the nonprofit during the duration of its five-year lease.

It Has Recently Been Brought to My Attention, the Show Called The Hunks

by Accidental Bear

The Hunks is a reality television series which first aired in april 2011 on sky Living, a UK television channel owned by British Sky Broadcasting. The series follows 10 males spending the summer in Newquay (where?)
The show features 10 single guys (Andy, Dom, Florian, Idris, Jamie, Marc, Sam, Samy, Sean and Vaughan) aged from 18-30 who were put up in 2 luxury apartments last summer (just above Pizza express) as part of a fly on the wall reality TV show in Newquay. ‘The Hunks’ love working out on their 6 packs, doing their hair and chatting up girls. One of them is apparently gay, but he snogs girls too. The show was filmed in the summer of 2010 in Newquay, wherever that is. MORE INFO

by Accidental Bear

Tim Burton works at L.A. County Museum of Art

Tim Burton’s Blue Girl With Wine is on display with other works by the artist/filmmaker at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

So it turns out that Tim Burton, best known as a filmmaker whose vision ranges from quirky to, well, nightmarish, is also an artist, photographer and writer. Beginning next weekend, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art will show 700 of his drawings, paintings, photos, storyboards, puppets, costumes and uncategorizable ephemera, many of them from his own archives. Fans of his films will recognize the popular culture, fairy tale and gothic references in both the subject and the style of many of his creations.
