Tony winner Lena Hall will reprise her role as Yitzhak in Hedwig and the Angry Inch in San Francisco and L.A.—but she will also play Hedwig for one performance a week, marking the first time anyone has played both.

She says:

I’m thrilled to be returning to Hedwig and the Angry Inch, performing not one, but two iconic roles in Los Angeles and my hometown of San Francisco. I have never been one to shy away from a challenge and playing Hedwig has always been a dream of mine. To be able to play both Yitzhak and Hedwig in the same day presents one of the biggest challenges I have seen to date and I’m so excited! Not only will I get to share the stage with my fellow San Francisco native and friend Darren Criss; but I will also get a chance to begin my own journey as the glam rock heroine Hedwig. To tell her story in my hometown and in Los Angeles is the greatest homecoming I can think of, and I am looking forward to sharing this journey with my friends, family and Hedheads.

Hall will appear as Hedwig in: San Francisco, Sunday, October 9 at 7:00 pm; Wednesday, October 12 at 8:00 pm; Wednesday, October 19 at 8:00 pm; and Wednesday, October 26 at 8:00 pm; and in: Los Angeles, Sunday, November 6 at 6:30 pm; Sunday, November 13 at 6:30 pm; Sunday, November 20 at 6:30 pm; and Friday, November 25 at 8:00 pm.

LGBTQ pioneer Jewel Thais-Williams has been announced as grand marshal of LA Pride.

From a release:

As the owner of the historic Catch One Disco, one of the most iconic Black gay discos in the world, Jewel Thais-Williams helped create a safe haven for many of the LGBTQ community for over 40 years. Not only was The Catch a place where one could find some of the biggest names in entertainment, like Sammy Davis Jr., Chaka Khan, Sylvester, Weather Girls, and Rick James, it also served as a community center for the Black LGBTQ community in Los Angeles. Her work with those affected by HIV/AIDS has steadily continued through the years. In the realm of community service, she also co-founded the Minority AIDS Project, which aims to help those affected by the disease in the African-American and Hispanic communities. Jewel served as a Board member of the AIDS Project Los Angeles and has made significant strides in helping women affected by AIDS by co-founding Rue’s House. Rue’s House was the first housing facility for women with AIDS giving much-needed services and shelter for women and their children in the United States.

“I am humbled by my selection as the Grand Marshal for this years LA PRIDE Parade. Many years ago we collaborated with another club and a florist company to become the first representing people of color in the parade. What an honor it is for me to lead the parade, pause for a minute to acknowledge the unity we have come to cherish in the community,” said Jewel Thais-Williams.

The parade, the centerpiece of the 46th LA Pride, happens June 12.

Was Amir Issa Killed For Being Gay, Or Was It Just Easier For His Dad To Kill Him Because He Was Gay? Comments (0)

Father2n-1-webAmir Issa (Image via Facebook)

Amir Issa, 38, was thought to have been killed by his own father simply because he was gay. After all, Issa documented his parents' kooky expressions of disapproval on social media ahead of his death from a shotgun blast last week, a murder for which his dad, Shehada Issa, 69, was arrested and charged.

Often lost in the reporting of this story is the fact that Issa's mother, Rabihah, 68, was also found dead in the house.

Now, investigators theorize that Shehada murdered his son primarily to cover up the stabbing death of his wife. His story to cops was that he'd heard noises in his home, grabbed his gun and was confronted by his knife-wielding son, whom he claimed must have stabbed his wife to death.

In reality, there was no knife found near Amir's body, and Rabihah had been killed some time before Amier.

I think the L.A. Times got it right in reporting that “homophobia, drugs and mental illness” all probably led to Amir's and Rabihah's senseless murders:

L.A. Mayor Pushes For Stonewall Inn Landmark Status Comments (0)

L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti is urging President Obama to get behind a movement to grant NYC's the Stonewall Inn and its neighboring Christopher Park national landmark status as places with a unique distinction in history.

In an open letter, Garcetti writes:

Although the struggle for equal rights extends from coast to coast, the Stonewall Riots in 1969 served as an historic turning point in LGBT history. Recognizing the Stonewall Inn and Christopher Park in New York City's West Village would honor the American LGBT experience in every city and help to teach people of an important historical event that has helped to shape our nation.

Don't miss the hot, nostalgic, heartwarming, funny images by Alan Light documenting the L.A. Gay Pride celebrations from 1987-1995.


As he noted when sending me the shots, they are remarkably tattoo-free. Steroids also seem to have been in short supply.
