They project an intense amount of positive energy inspiring everyone to smile from ear-to-ear and happily wave right back at them! Drag queens are the sparkling diamonds of the queer community’s tiara; the shine, the light, the energetic force which makes all queer events super special. They do so much for the queer community, Market Street Gallery created this exhibition to celebrate them!

Scooter Laforge Releases First Published Survey; “QUEER FROM ZERO TO A HUNDRED”

by Accidental Bear




For the first day of summer in New York, Scooter LaForge is offering the FIRST PUBLISHED SURVEY of his work.  This book of images will feature all of the sexy trash and trashy sex that has quickly made this artist a legend.  Highlights include celebrity collaborations, paintings and some of his iconic fashions, and it will be a limited edition print so be sure to get yours while supplies last.  Editions go on sale during opening night of “
QUEER FROM ZERO TO A HUNDRED.”  This show will open in conjunction with New York’s Gay Pride, and continue for 2 months, offering the public a rare glimpse of work as well as the opportunity to purchase this rare offering.  This show, focusing on the queer aspects of his work, ties in with a legacy that has seen Scooter LaForge rise from San Fransisco notable, even designing the 2010 Castro Street Fair logo, to an enticing artist who is decidedly one to watch.  With 20 paintings, sculptures, and drawings under one roof for the first time ever, “QUEER FROM ZERO TO A HUNDRED” will be a full-throttle glimpse into his highly charged world.

The price for the book is $60 or $100 for a book with a tee shirt!!!! xxoxoox

Clay Aiken Goes All Violent Jazz Hands on Doubters

by Accidental Bear

I can relate, sorta. I never had a coming out party or ran to the top of a mountain and screamed, IM HERE  IM QUEER, GET USED TO IT! Nor have I had it published in any magazines. I was always the little weirdo, queer kid that people just called gay because of my difference in appearance. So, when I started sleeping with men ( many many men), it wasn’t a shocker to anyone.

Clay Aiken Was Never in the Closet

By Advocate.com Editors

CLAY AIKEN X390 (FAIR) | ADVOCATE.COM

Pop singer Clay Aiken says, “There was this misconception that I was not out,” in an interview with The Georgia Voice.

While promoting his Tried and True tour, Aiken, who officially admitted he was gay in People magazine in 2008, was asked about the obligation of gay performers to come out. “I was in Spamalot and everyone knew, but I don’t necessarily want to sit at a table with strangers and tell them,” he said. “When you come out, you do it with people you are comfortable with.”

The singer says that while his coming-out may have surprised a few people, it had no adverse effect on his career.

“I definitely do see the liberation and understand the rationalization of people wanting me to be out,” he says. “On the other hand, I wouldn’t say that coming out has made me happier because that implies I was not happy before and I was.”

The Voice writes that Aiken is now comfortable discussing being gay and mentions that he even went to D.C. to speak at a Capitol Hill briefing on antigay bullying at the end of last year.

Hot Queer Tour Alert: MEN Tour to Start February 1st

by Accidental Bear

Progression of BRILLANCE :

Kathleen Hanna—->Julie Ruin—> Bikini Kill —-> Le Tigre —-> MEN

“MEN shows have always reached a fever pitch, treating each show as an art project, sometimes asking local artists to paint a backdrop while they perform, or by using DIY cardboard-and-tippex props, including cut-out fists and banners printed with slogans like “SILENCE=DEATH” and “WHO AM I TO FEEL SO FREE”. ”
