NEW LGBT HISTORY FILM! 'ON THESE SHOULDERS WE STAND!
by IMPACT STORIES!
June 5, 2009.
.Good news! Film director and community activist Glenne
McElhinney (pictured below on the right) of Impact Stories (www.
impactstories.org) and her
editor, Philip Harrison,
contacted me a couple of
days ago to get permission
to include a picture of me in
a documentary they are
making about early Los
Angeles’ LGBT activism.
Philip told me, “I am editing
a film (On These Shoulders
We Stand) about GLBT
history in Los Angeles. We
are trying to include a short
section about a protest that
was held in Los Angeles as
a result of your firing from
the States Steamship
Company (in 1969 San
Francisco). I am writing to
request to use the photo of
you included on your website as part of the film with a title
mentioning your name. This is an important moment in GLBT
history and we very much want to include it in the film. One of the
points of doing the documentary is to make it clear that there was
a vibrant activist community in California before Stonewall.
Everyone always says that was the birthplace but there was so
much going on out here before that.”
The documentary is called On these Shoulders We Stand and is
due to be screened at LA Outfest July 11 and 18.

Here's a blurb from www.impactstories.org about the film: “Not
everything began with Stonewall. On These Shoulders We Stand
portrays an historical account of early gay life and activism in Los
Angeles told by the people who lived it. (The documentary)
chronicles the lives of ten elders, from their early years to their
coming out, to their groundbreaking activism for the rights of all
LGBT people. Contrary to popular belief that the struggle for gay
rights was confined to New York City and San Francisco, the film
profiles several Los Angeles activists who helped change the
course of both California and LGBT history.”
of gay pioneer
Rev Troy Perry,
founder of MCC
The LA activist linked to me is Rev. Troy Perry, who founded the
world’s first gay house of worship, Metropolitan Community
Church (MCC). In 1969, when I was fired in San Francisco, he and
his congregation took to the streets to form a picket line in front of
the LA division of States Steamship Company a.k.a. States Line in
solidarity with our SF protest. All of this happened before
Stonewall, mind you!
Glenne, best known for her involvement with Dykes on Bikes, told
me that this is only the first of several films to come.
I am thrilled that someone is finally documenting the activism of
California’s gay pioneers. Check out the project’s website: www.

I watched Comedy Central’s new TV show Tosh.O last night,
which is supposed to be all about Web videos. I love the humor of
Daniel Todd, but so far, this show sucks! Even an appearance by
Dave Attell couldn’t save the show. The problem? The videos
Daniel picked were either gross or stupid. We have ten more
weeks of this program on the summer schedule, so let’s hope it

FALL TV SCHEDULE!
I’M IN LOVE WITH CRAIG OLEJNIK, THE LISTENER!
June 4, 2009.
I don’t much care for the way the new animated “comedy” on
ABC, The Goode Family (a series which attempts to make fun of
political correctness), stereotypes lesbians by portraying them as
radical butched-up crazies. Although the program is from
animation royalty, Mike Judge, best known for producing King of
the Hill and Beavis and Butt-head, he misses the mark with this
The “Animals or Else” group portrayed on Wednesday’s show
demeaned gays in general and lesbians in particular. And the
show isn’t even funny. Where the hell is GLAAD? The issue is
probably moot, though. The program is so dumb and boring, it’ll
probably be canceled before anything can be done.

I’m in love! Even though the plot to the premier of NBC’s The
Listener Thursday night was a bit thin, I couldn’t stop watching
the mesmerizing blue eyes of Craig Olejnik. He plays Toby Logan,
a 25-year-old telepathic paramedic who uses his secret ability to
help people in crisis.
Apparently, the show is a hit in Canada, where over twelve
episodes already produced are currently showing on that country’
s CTV network, unlike in the US, where the only info available is
vague, saying that it’ll be on the fall schedule and little else.

Thirty-year old, good-looking Craig Olejnik was born on June 1,
1979 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The Canadian actor is also a writer,

fourteen, Olejnik has several movies under his belt, including
Runaway, Wolf Lake, Margret’s Museum, Teen Sorcery, In God’s
Country. So Weird: Mr. Magnetism, and Thir13en Ghosts.

June 4, 2009.
US Secretary of State Hillary
Clinton vowed Monday, June
1, 2009, to fight for gay rights,
calling for all nations to stop
violence and discrimination
based on sexual orientation.
"The persecution of gays and
lesbians is a violation of human
rights and an affront to human
decency, and it must end,"
she said. "As secretary of state,
I will advance a comprehensive
human rights agenda that
includes the elimination of
violence and discrimination
against people based on sexual
orientation or gender identity."
She noted that the Obama
Administration supports a UN
resolution calling for the
worldwide decriminalization of
homosexuality, which remains
punishable by death in seven countries ; Iran, Mauritania, Nigeria,
Saudi Arabia, Sudan, the United Arab Emirates and Yemen. Read

Democratic Governor John Lynch signed a new law yesterday
making New Hampshire the sixth state to legalize same sex
marriage. Lynch, who had up to now only been in favor of civil
unions, said he had listened to “compelling arguments that a
separate system is not an equal system. Today, we are standing
up for the liberties of same sex couples by making clear that they
will receive the same rights, responsibilities, and respect, under
New Hampshire law.” Right on! Here’s a link to a story on MSNBC.

The story of Oprah’s favorite home designer, Nate Berkus, is
amazing. At the age of 24, he founded his own company, Nate
Berkus Associates in 1995 Chicago. Six years after opening the
firm, Berkus had dinner with a family friend who happened to be
an executive producer of Oprah, and the rest is history.
After making dozens of household makeover appearances on the
show, he appeared on Oprah in 2005 to tell a tragic story. He and
his lover, Fernando Bengoechea, had been on vacation in Sri
Lanka when the deadly 2004 tsunami hit, killing over 200,000
people in South Asia. When their hut washed away, they were
forced to cling to a telephone pole and each other for 30 seconds
before being separated.
Bengoechea’s body was never found. The tragic account touched
millions watching the show. It was also Berkus’ first time talking
publicly about his homosexuality.
............................Photograph montage of Nate Berkus from his official website
He won a Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Visibility Award for his
courage. “After almost dying, you realize that your word and your
actions are all that you have in the end, and you’re forced to think
a lot more about what your impact will be when you’re gone,” he
said. Berkus has received many design honors, including Chicago
Social Magazine Design Director (2000), House Beautiful’s Next
Wave Design Talent (2003), and Craine Business Magazine’s 40
Under 40 To Watch (2003).
In the fall of 2005, Nate published his first
book, Home Rules: Transform the Place
You Live into a Place You’ll Love. (Here’s
a link to Amazon to buy the hardcover
New York Times Best Seller for $18.45.)
In 2006, he premiered The Nate Berkus

channel. The same year, Linens ‘n

I’M A CELEBRITY NEEDS TO GET OUT OF HERE!
June 3, 2009
I gave up my usual CBS comedy line up to watch NBC’s I’m a
Celebrity . . . Get Me Out of Here! Monday night, even though one
of its “stars” is religious fundamentalist homophobe Stephen
Baldwin (who’s main claim to fame is The Usual Suspects and a
brother who can act). He recently appeared on Dr Phil to preach
about the perils of gay marriage. Anyway, the new show was a big
waste of time! I can’t believe it’s on four nights a week! At least, it
only lasts one month. I mean, Patti Blagojevich? The wife of Rod?
Really? How fitting that she got sent down the river in the first ten
minutes of the show and almost drowned.

The premier episode was saved by eye candy but none too bright
couple Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag-Spencer (married at the
hip stars of MTV's The Hills), Frangela (comedy duo Frances
Callier and Angela V. Shelton from the movie He's Just Not That
Into You, and the VH1’s Best Week Ever), and crazy but gay-
friendly Janice Dickenson (the “world’s first supermodel”).

Well, maybe “saved” is too big a word. This show should ask the
public for absolution! I first realized that after thirty minutes into
the program, when the host said, “After the break, Spencer and
Heidi head for the hills!” and fifteen minutes later my suspicions
were confirmed when Spencer announced, “Good news! We’re
having Sanjaya for dinner. I’m going to cook him alive.” What the
hell happened? Did all the writers come down with Costa Rican
This program should’ve been called, I’m Still Not Going to be a
Celebrity after this Show Tanks. Tuesday night’s show (Little else
was on) substantiated all my trepidations and suspicions that
fundamentalist homophobes are tragically stupid. And really,
folks, all those faux threats from Heidi and Spencer about quitting
got old fast. Not sure if those two are homophobic, but they sure
are dumb. I hope they get voted off soon! Not that I’ll be watching
I was busy reading on the series’ “official” website when I realized
it was out of date. All the info was about a version of the program
aired in Britain last year. Why don’t these people get their act
together and update their stuff?
The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien was much improved last
night. He got into some topical stuff and was pretty funny. His bit
making light of Twitter was priceless! Maybe he’ll make it after all.
It was disappointing how the mainstream press tended to ignore
President Obama’s proclamation of June as LGBT Month. At least
our gal friends on The View talked about it, as they did former Vice-
President Cheney’s speech approving gay marriage at the state
level. CNN had blurbs about both, but I found little about either
story on network news programs.
I’ll never understand the hypocrisy of anti-abortionist activists
who think unborn life is sacred but not that of adults who disagree
with them. What a sad commentary it is that one of those
misguided fools killed 67 year-old Dr. George Tiller because Tiller
was recently acquitted of bogus charges that he performed illegal

OBAMA’S LGBT PRIDE MONTH PROCLAMATION FULL TEXT!
June 2, 2009
As if to silence the growing chorus of gay
critics who say he has not kept his
promises to the GLBT community,
President Barack Obama shocked
everyone yesterday by declaring June Gay
Pride Month! Right on! Here is the
“BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED
STATES OF AMERICA
Forty years ago, patrons and supporters
of the Stonewall Inn in New York City
resisted police harassment that had
become all too common for members
of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and
transgender (LGBT) community. Out of this resistance, the LGBT
rights movement in America was born. During, we commemorate
the events of June 1969 and commit to achieving equal justice
under law for LGBT Americans.
LGBT Americans have made, and continue to make, great and
lasting contributions that continue to strengthen the fabric of
American society. There are many well-respected LGBT leaders in
all professional fields, including the arts and business
communities. LGBT Americans also mobilized the Nation to
respond to the domestic HIV/AIDS epidemic and have played a
vital role in broadening this country's response to the HIV
pandemic." (continued after the photo)

riots. We've come

"Due in no small part to the determination and dedication of the
LGBT rights movement, more LGBT Americans are living their
lives openly today than ever before. I am proud to be the first
President to appoint openly LGBT candidates to Senate-
confirmed positions in the first 100 days of an Administration.
These individuals embody the best qualities we seek in public
servants, and across my Administration -- in both the White House
and the Federal agencies -- openly LGBT employees are doing
their jobs with distinction and professionalism.
The LGBT rights movement has achieved great progress, but
there is more work to be done. LGBT youth should feel safe to
learn without the fear of harassment, and LGBT families and
seniors should be allowed to live their lives with dignity and
My Administration has partnered with the LGBT community to
advance a wide range of initiatives. At the international level, I
have joined efforts at the United Nations to decriminalize
homosexuality around the world. Here at home, I continue to
support measures to bring the full spectrum of equal rights to
LGBT Americans. These measures include enhancing hate crimes
laws, supporting civil unions and Federal rights for LGBT couples,
outlawing discrimination in the workplace, ensuring adoption
rights, and ending the existing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy in a
way that strengthens our Armed Forces and our national security.
We must also commit ourselves to fighting the HIV/AIDS epidemic
by both reducing the number of HIV infections and providing care
and support services to people living with HIV/AIDS across the
These issues affect not only the LGBT community, but also our
entire Nation. As long as the promise of equality for all remains
unfulfilled, all Americans are affected. If we can work together to
advance the principles upon which our Nation was founded, every
American will benefit. During LGBT Pride Month, I call upon the
LGBT community, the Congress, and the American people to work
together to promote equal rights for all, regardless of sexual
orientation or gender identity.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United
States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the
Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim
June 2009 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride
Month. I call upon the people of the United States to turn back
discrimination and prejudice everywhere it exists.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this first day
of June, in the year of our Lord two thousand nine, and of the
Independence of the United States of America the two hundred

GAY MTV MOVIE AWARDS, EMINEM, and BRUNO’S NAKED

The censors beeped so much of Eminem’s performance on the
2009 MTV Movie Awards Sunday night as he spit out the lyrics to
his name-dropping single "We Made You" and "Crack A Bottle"
from his album Relapse, I had no idea what he was talking about.
Not that I care, even if he does tout Elton John as one of his best
friends. I’m just not that fond of rap, be it black or white. I don’t
understand why it’s not called what it really is—poetry!
Bruno in jock strap and wings landing on Eminem at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards photo
As for the Awards itself, the highlight of the evening was when the
oh-so-openly gay Bruno flew over the crowd via a high-wire
dressed in angel wings and little else, his buttocks completely
exposed. Why, I have no frickin’ idea. He was supposed to give
out the Golden Popcorn trophy to Zac Efron for best leading man.
........................Photo of Sacha Baron Cohen as Bruno, his gay alter ego
The supposedly straight British comedian, Sacha Baron Cohen
(who gained fame playing Borat, the crazy Kazakh reporter), loves
to show up at odd places as his alter ego Bruno, a flamboyantly
gay Austrian fashion presenter based on a character in his
English TV series Da Ali G Show. Eminem stormed out after Bruno’
s jock landed smack dab on his face. All staged, but funny
nonetheless. It certainly was a night of gaiety, I must say.
But who was that fool on the Awards show who kept gyrating his
hips and repeating over and over, “Suck my golden popcorn d--
k”? and why the hell wasn’t he bleeped? I could’ve done without
him, whoever he was.
Was it just me or did the first episode of the Tonight Show with
Conan O’Brien fall flat? I miss the topical monologue of Jay Leno.
Now where am I going to get my news? The View? And what’s up
with sidekick Andy Richter’s hair? Talk about a comb-forward! In
any case, O’Brien’s show lacked the pizzazz it had when he was
on early in the morning. I mean, where the hell was the
Masturbating Bear? Conan could’ve used him last night.
Photo of gay partners without benefit of marriage for 17 years, Mary Cheney, Heather Poe
Cheney finally grew a pair and came out for gay marriage (state
level only) at the National Press Club June 1, 1009: "I think that
freedom means freedom for everyone. As many of you know, one
of my daughters is gay, and it is something we have lived with for
a long time in our family. I think people ought to be free to enter
into any kind of union they wish. Any kind of arrangement they
wish. The question of whether or not there ought to be a federal
statute to protect this, I don't support. I do believe that. Historically
the way marriage has been regulated is at the state level. It has
always been a state issue and I think that is the way it ought to be
handled, on a state-by-state basis. . .."

himself on live radio Dec. 2008).

It will be followed in July by "Doctor Who: Planet of the Dead." The

David Tennant, will air later in 2009 and early 2010.

emotional breakdown and has been admitted to a private clinic for

was taking time off for “rest and recovery.” I can only imagine the
stress she is enduring.

People reported today that Octo-Mom, Nadya Suleman, has

having film crews around her house all the time, they will only
showcase special events, like birthdays.
