This weekend, Gina Carano’s action flick Haywire lands in theaters in the U.S. But if you can’t wait to see Carano land some punches, then check out the below chase scene from the film. Carano is my new hero! (Check back for our review of the film on Monday.)
Rent’s Rosario Dawson appears in Bullitts’ new music video for “Supercool.” Run, Rosario, run!
On Sunday night I dragged my sick ass out of bed to attend the Los Angeles HER HRC Event. (I’ve been sick for three weeks but being gay always trumps an illness.) The HER HRC events are occurring all over the country this month and next, so if there is one in your area (check their website for event dates/locations) head over for a good time. And a big thank you to the HRC Kansas City Volunteers for the shout out on the red carpet. You are awesome! (And I like you more than everyone else.)
Out artist Leslie Early is at it again. Check out her latest music video, “Dreaming of New York.”
And speaking of out musicians, listen to (the NSFW song) "OTIS" by Rainbow Noise.
Wolfe Video Founder Kathy Wolfe wrote a terrific article for The Huffington Post about making LGBT independent films and why piracy profiteers need to walk the plank. (No eye patches necessary.)
