The Met Store Rolls Out ‘Camp’-Inspired Collection for Pride, Plans Vogueing Competition

Trying to maximize the public’s interest in the Costume Institute’s “Camp: Notes on Fashion,” The Met Store is launching a Pride collection today.
Rainbow colors and Pride-themed motifs are stamped on an assortment of products including socks, sweatshirts, a denim jacket, earrings, pennants and pens. “Be yourself: Everyone else is already taken,” a quote from Oscar Wilde, whose words and image can be found in the exhibition, are also featured on select products. Retail prices range from $ 15 to $ 128.
The over-the-topness of this year’s theme resulted in a blizzard of media exposure at the Met gala, thanks largely to social media favorites like Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and the Kardashian clan. To date, sales of Camp-themed merchandise is 45 percent ahead of last year’s sales, according to a spokeswoman for the Met Store. The 300-plus Camp-inspired pieces are being sold via The Met’s online store and its exhibition store and main store on the Upper East Side.
“It just seemed natural to create this capsule collection and these relevant apparel/accessories with the theme of the exhibition, ‘Camp: Notes on Fashion,’” a Met Store spokeswoman said.
The Met has been getting all kinds of mileage out of Camp at retail and via experiential endeavors.

Several brands are showing their support by creating capsule collections full of rainbow-themed apparel and accessories, donating up to 100 percent of net proceeds to charities that benefit the LGBTQ+ community, including GLAAD, the Hetrick-Martin Institute and the United Nations Free & Equal campaign, among others.
Brands are also tapping famous figures to help spread awareness of LGBTQ+ rights, including H&M, which tapped actress and activist Laverne Cox to front its Love for All campaign, and Adidas, which partnered with a number of activists for its Love Unites campaign, including DJ Venus X and drag performer Flawless Shade.

Diva Devotee Seth Sikes Honors Pride With A Celebratory New Show

Few performers are as perfectly suited for Pride weekend as Seth Sikes.

The 33-year-old cabaret star has been thrilling audiences with his tribute concerts to Judy Garland and Liza Minnelli for nearly three years. On June 24, however, he’ll go all out with a no-holds-barred show at New York’s Feinstein’s/54 Below featuring songs made famous by the aforementioned divas, as well as Bernadette Peters and Barbra Streisand. (Catch a sneak peek of Sikes performing a tune from the musical “Gypsy” above.) 

“Usually my goal is to keep the songbook alive and celebrate the ladies,” Sikes told HuffPost. “But this time, the goal is to get people in a happy, happy mood to go out dancing afterward… what celebrates Pride more than a bunch of diva songs?” 

What began as a “one-night-only stunt” in 2014 has taken Sikes across the country, and even internationally, since then. Most recently, he celebrated what would have been Garland’s 95th birthday with a performance in London ― a particularly fitting tribute, as the “Wizard of Oz” star capped off her unparalleled career with a string of shows in England’s capital. 

Of course, Sikes is aware that his Pride weekend show comes at a time when many LGBTQ people are still reeling from the election of President Donald Trump, who ran on an explicitly anti-queer platform. The performer, who has not shied away from politics on social media, won’t mention Trump during his performance, but rather “have some fun” while reminding people that the LGBTQ community is “mighty and not going away.” 

“I talked a little bit about Trump in my last show,” he said. “But frankly, at this point, I’m so sick of hearing about him and talking about him, I probably won’t bring it up at all this time. Let’s forget the asshole for a moment!” 

For now, Sikes couldn’t be happier to be honoring Pride with a brand-new show. “I think Pride is about family and community and a celebration of our unique culture. We have a lot of that to celebrate right now ― including our lady icons ― and we have a lot to be grateful for, including marriage equality,” he said. “But we can’t take any of it for granted.” 

Seth Sikes performs at New York’s Feinstein’s/54 Below June 24. Next up, he’ll visit the Crown & Anchor in Provincetown, Massachusetts on July 8 and Aug. 7.

A ‘Drag Race’ Queen Kicks Off Pride By Re-Creating A Queer Classic

RuPaul’s Drag Race” contestant Alexis Michelle kicked off Pride month in the “gayest” way possible, teaming up with Broadway’s Andrew Keenan-Bolger for a spirited take on “Get Happy/Happy Days Are Here Again.” 

The tune is a perfect pick for Pride, of course, given its history. In 1963, Judy Garland and a 21-year-old Barbra Streisand performed the duet on “The Judy Garland Show,” and it remains a staple of queer playlists 54 years later. 

Michelle, 32, will return to New York nightspot Feinstein’s/54 Below June 13 for a special Pride installment of “It Takes A Woman… An Evening with Alexis Michelle.” The show, which features musical direction by Brandon James Gwinn, sees the drag queen tackling songs from Broadway musicals such as “Cabaret,” “Hello, Dolly!” and “La Cage aux Folles,” as well as hits by Streisand and Lady Gaga.   

“I fell in love with theater when I was 5 years old,” Michelle, whose real name is Alex Michaels, told HuffPost in May. “The best I can do – as a gay man, a queer performer and a drag queen – is live my life honestly, openly and authentically, and let that authenticity be reflected in my performances. I really do believe that if we all live authentically, that behavior in and of itself has the power to change the world.”

Alexis Michelle stars in “It Takes A Woman… An Evening with Alexis Michelle” at Feinstein’s/54 Below in New York on June 13. Head here for details.

Levi’s Launches 2017 Pride Collection

Levi’s is about to roll out the fourth installment of its limited-edition Pride collection for 2017. The collection’s inspiration, “Fight Stigma,” underscores Levi’s commitment to fighting for and protecting the rights of the LGBTQ community.
The Pride offering features T-shirts ($ 29.50), trucker vest ($ 78), denim shorts ($ 69), a baseball cap ($ 18) and bandanna ($ 18).
One T-shirt and tank style, for example, has the “Fight Stigma” logo on the front and an LGBTQ timeline of historical moments that the company’s design team develops. Each season Levi’s pulls from that timeline and a moment inspires that year’s collection.
Another Pride T-shirt carries the rainbow batwing and the Levi’s logo, while the trucker vest in dark wash denim has the “Silence = Death” rallying cry. The Pride bandanna has a paisley print and Levi’s rainbow batwing embroidery.
“Fighting stigma on any level is important. And we feel that it’s our responsibility to stand up for the issues of our time,” said Grant Barth, Levi’s chief merchandising officer.  “Levi’s has always been on this journey; doing the right thing, standing up for the values and giving everyone a voice.”
Levi’s has a long history of supporting the LGBTQ community. In 1982, then-chief executive officer Robert Haas joined employees in the

A Pride of Eagles

A Pride of Eagles


This is the story of military aviation in Rhodesia from the romantic days of ‘bush’ flying in the 1920s and ’30s -when aircraft were refuelled from jerrycans and landing grounds were often the local golf course – to the disbandment of the Rhodesian Air Force (RhAF) on Zimbabwean independence in 1980. In 1939 the tiny Royal Rhodesian Air Force (RRAF) became the first to take up battle stations even before the outbreak of the Second World War. The three Rhodesian squadrons served with distinction in East Africa, the Western Desert, Italy and Western Europe. At home Rhodesia became a vast training ground for airmen from across the Empire – from Britain, the Commonwealth and even Greece. After the war, Rhodesia, on a negligible budget, rebuilt its air force, equipping it with Ansons, Spitfires, Vampires, Canberras, Hunters and Alouettes. Following UDI, the unilateral declaration of independence from Britain in 1965, international sanctions were imposed, resulting in many remarkable and groundbreaking innovations, particularly in the way of ordnance. The bitter ‘bush war’ followed in the late 1960s and ’70s, with the RhAF in the vanguard of local counter-insurgency operations and audacious pre-emptive strikes against vast guerrilla bases in neighbouring Mozambique, Zambia and Botswana and as far afield as Angola and Tanzania. With its ageing fleet, including C-47 ‘Dakotas’ that had been at Arnhem, the RhAF was able to wreak untold havoc on the enemy, Mugabe’s ZANLA and Nkomo’s ZIPRA. The late author took over 30 years in writing this book; the result is a comprehensive record that reflects the pride, professionalism and dedication of what were some of the world’s finest airmen of their time.

Drama and Pride in the Gateway City

Drama and Pride in the Gateway City


By 1964 the storied St. Louis Cardinals had gone seventeen years without so much as a pennant. Things began to turn around in 1953, when August A. Busch Jr. bought the team and famously asked where all the black players were. Under the leadership of men like Bing Devine and Johnny Keane, the Cardinals began signing talented players regardless of color, and slowly their star started to rise again. Drama and Pride in the Gateway City commemorates the team that Bing Devine built, the 1964 team that prevailed in one of the tightest three-way pennant races of all time and then went on to win the World Series, beating the New York Yankees in the full seven games. All the men come alive in these pages?pitchers Ray Sadecki and Bob Gibson, players Lou Brock, Curt Flood, and Bobby Shantz, manager Johnny Keane, his coaches, the Cardinals’ broadcasters, and Bill White, who would one day run the entire National League?along with the dramatic events that made the 1964 Cardinals such a memorable club in a memorable year.

Celebrate Love and Equality at Pride Music Festival in San Diego

2015-07-02-1435876581-6502834-Pride.jpg

The art of change is one that occurs slowly, its early brushstrokes seemingly unclear except to the eyes of its believers. As the painting becomes more complete, a vision begins to materialize, a vision that many saw all along. When true change finally occurs, a masterpiece is unveiled. The United States of America has seen many changes over the past decade, but one of the most colorfully celebrated is the 2015 Supreme Court ruling that made same-sex marriage a constitutional right (which it always has been) nationwide.

Pride celebrations began long before this ruling and will continue on long after. However, the timing is impeccable as the pride celebrations are just a little more special this time around. San Diego Pride is proud to present Pride Music Festival, the San Diego region’s biggest and most grandiose music festival celebrating diversity and equality. This epic event will unite over 40,000 people over two days from across the nation to celebrate, rejoice, dance, and of course, share love.

In addition to being a massive city-wide party, this event also supports dozens of charitable organizations and has raised and donated over $ 2 million over the years. The surrounding neighborhoods as well as the city and county of San Diego have long supported Pride Music Festival because of its respectful and excellent reputation for safety. Among many other things, Pride Music Festival will feature an open-air art gallery, food trucks, craft beers, spirits and more than 200 exhibitor and vendor booths. There is also a VIP section available which offers a VIP entrance, restrooms, catered food, and four hosted drinks each day.

Providing the pulse of Pride Music Festival will be five electronic and live music stages sprinkled amid the lush greenery of San Diego’s Balboa Park during the weekend of July 18th-19th. The recently unveiled lineup includes current dance, pop, hip-hop, Latin and many other genres of music such as Emma Hewitt, Late Night Alumni, Mary Lambert, Ruby Rose, Pierce Fulton and Taryn Manning, just to name a few. Even Carmen Electra will be showing her support by hosting the mainstage on day 1, keeping attendees rallied.

The 2015 theme is “Liberty and Justice For All,” a true call-to-action for equality not just in the U.S., but globally. “It’s a memorable experience to unite with thousands of people, taking pride in who you are and celebrating each other,” said executive director Stephen Whitburn. “Pride Music Festival is for everyone.”

Music festivals are currently one of the strongest uniting forces in popular culture. Combining the unity of a music festival and the power of the Pride movement creates a unique and unforgettable experience that will keep this event alive for years to come. Pride Music Festival 2015 will not only be an epic party, but a beautiful moment in history shared even by those who cannot attend. It will represent a time when the voices of millions were finally heard, where full acceptance and equality are not just possible but necessary, and when an entire nation finally shares this same freedom. Under the warm San Diego sun, humans will dance and celebrate together united beneath the banner of love.

Movie review: Pride proudly crosses lines

2014-09-23-pride.jpg

Pride is the kind of movie that is best seen without knowing its storyline going in. Because it delivers something quite different than you expect, based on the kind of movie it seems to be.

Even if you do know the plot (which deals with the coal-miners strike that tore Great Britain apart in the mid-1980s and much more), you still have to see it to believe it. Director Matthew Warchus (primarily known for theater work such as God of Carnage and Art) tells a multi-character story based on actual events that manages to be funny, touching, enraging and otherwise demanding a viewer’s emotional response.

It starts with those strikes in Great Britain in 1984, in protest of Margaret Thatcher’s attempts to close coal mines and lay off miners. Even as the miners are striking, members of the London gay community decide, after that year’s gay pride parade, that they will support the miners and start raising money for their strike fund. When their efforts to donate the money to the union itself are ignored (because of who the donation is coming from), the group’s leader, Mark (Ben Schnetzer), rallies his troops and picks one mining village in Wales to whom they’ll take their support in person.

The miners at first are nonplussed at the idea of being in the same room as actual gay people: “I’ve never met anyone who was gay,” one local says, to which Mark replies, “That you know of.”

Why I Won’t Be at Pride This Year, in One Long Rant

1. Because I don’t have 0-percent body fat, and, from what I keep reading, that is the purpose of Pride. And those who tell us it has nothing to do with body fat, and that we need to stop obsessing over unattainable physical-perfection goals, tend to possess unattainable physical perfection, like Matthew J. Dempsey. Have you seen him? We might as well have Angelina Jolie do a video on how silly it is for women to complain about being ugly… or leading unglamorous lives.

2. Because my straight friends have much more fun than I do, laughing from the sidelines. And their expressions are a tad too similar to the looks on their faces when gawking at the monkeys in the Bronx Zoo.

3. Because the last time I attended one of those big Pride parties, my date ditched me (and “ditched” is the correct word) before I showed up, and emailed me the next night to say, “Sorry, but I met someone else when I showed up — I really hate myself for it.” It wasn’t his email that upset me so much. It was that he never did meet someone else; he just decided he’d rather go solo and thought the made-up story would make me feel better. It was, like, so humiliating.

4. Because I have a hard time relating to a generation of men who cite Mean Girls as the film that best defines them.

5. Because I’m tired of cloned-looking, butch-acting, fake-smiling men greeting me once a year with forced promises of acceptance and love, if I just join them. Whoops, that was supposed to be why I dislike the Mormon missionary guys, but it’s easy to confuse the two.

6. Because I’m holding out for a better offer, like a stay in East Hampton or a beach house on Fire Island. Trading up is the new Pride.

7. Because every gay magazine giving me advice on what to do for Pride shows a semi-naked, 20-something model and suggests the all-night dick party, the all-boat dick party, the all-day dick party, the all-dancing dick party, and all dicks wherever I go — and all sponsored by liquor companies. That’s fine, but I’ll save a lot of money and have a lot better chance of finding a drunken lay if I hang around “straight” Irish bars on St. Patrick’s Day.

8. Because straight entertainers are now the main gay attraction. This shouldn’t bother me a bit, because Demi Lovato is performing, and she is the first name that comes to mind when I think of Pride. Well, except Lea Michele, but between butchering Barbra, perfecting the artifice of autotune, and creating one of the most self-centered, annoying TV personas ever, we need her for something far more important to our cause: World Pride!

9. Because I just turned 50, and, judging from everything I read, I no longer exist, except in movies about gay men who no longer exist.

10. Because I’m tired of smiley-faced men pretending we’re friends and hugging and kissing me even though we’ve just met, and then asking for my number because it’s all about togetherness. Whoops, that was supposed to be why I dislike the gay AA guys, but it’s easy to confuse the two.

11. Because the only Molly I’ve ever been interested in starred in The Breakfast Club. Give me a holler if Miss Ringwald makes an appearance.

12. Because Pride is on a Sunday, and TV offers a lot more variety that night, especially when it comes to unique personalities, clever escapism, and the kind of drama you actually want to witness.

13. Because if I want to stare at a lineup of half-naked, muscled-up men who look exactly the same except for the position of their tattoos, and pretend to be besties with them, and collect as many of these guys in my social circles so that people will think that I too am fabulous and popular, I can simply “friend” them on Facebook, “like” everything they do, and never leave the house. Friend-request me if you agree — and if you’re hot.

14. Because the only difference between Pride and Groundhog Day, as well as the remakes Source Code and Edge of Tomorrow, is that I don’t always get the guy or the happy ending, and I age a year each time it repeats.

15. Because going to Disney World is less of a hassle and a lot more authentic.

16. Because, between the ridiculous prices, the crowds, the glitter that stays with me for weeks, the inevitability of losing your friends in the masses, the fondling from guys with dilated pupils, the vomit viewing, the rush to make friends with anyone with a parade-route view, the heatstroke or pouring rain, the vicious queens kicking me with heels, the vicious drag queens kicking me with heels, the vicious lesbians kicking me with boots, and the sexy naked guys so loaded that by the end of the night they’ll sleep with just about… ah, heck, I’ll be there. I’m not proud.

5 Challenges, a Stumble and a Lot of Pride: How We Made a Biopic About Nelson Mandela

A global icon, a legend, an inspiration. Even The Onion joked respectfully, “Nelson Mandela Becomes First Politician To Be Missed.” How do you make a movie about such a man? The first answer, looking back, is: slowly. We didn’t know at the beginning that it would take the rest of Mandela’s life, and that within days of the release of the finished film he would be dead.

While still in prison, Nelson Mandela corresponded with South African film producer Anant Singh. On his release, Anant met Mandela, and the two men became friends. When Mandela published his autobiography, Long Walk To Freedom, he gave the film rights to Anant, saying he did not wish to vet the project in any way. Anant turned to me to write the screenplay. I had written the screenplay for an earlier movie he had produced, a musical about the Soweto uprising called Sarafina. I put it to Anant that a South African screenwriter should take on this nationally sensitive task. He replied that he wanted a global movie, and that a local writer would find it much harder to negotiate the complex rivalries of South African politics. In other words, I would be more able to make the necessary brutal simplifications.

So from the start, the first challenge was how to simplify: what to keep in, what to cut. The second challenge was how to approach the man himself. Too much reverence and the movie becomes pious propaganda. Too much fault finding and the movie becomes mean-spirited, and fails to match the audience’s love and admiration for the man. The third challenge was how to explain the politics, a part of the story that is central, massively complex, and at this distance in time, potentially dull. The fourth challenge was how to explain the nature of Mandela’s achievement. Just what is it this man did that makes him so revered? And the fifth and final challenge was to wrap it all up in a movie that tells a story, that grips and entertains, that is dramatic. After all, the central character spends 27 years in prison — not on the face of it an action movie.

The structural challenge came first. Should we attempt the whole life, or should we find one moment in that life and use it to represent the whole? In recent years, it’s become almost an orthodoxy among moviemakers that the whole-life approach is passé. Lincoln focuses on the passage of one bill. The Iron Lady frames glimpses of her life in scenes of her dementia. In the case of Mandela, it seemed to us that the span of his life itself communicated his achievement: that only when you understood where he came from and what his country was like as he grew to maturity, could you appreciate his greatness. We did experiment with the usual time-fracture techniques, starting with his prison sentence, for example, and flashing back and forward. But it felt that in doing this we were foregrounding the film grammar over the man and his story. So we decided to tell the life straight: no clever games.

This helped us in facing the second challenge, the risk of over-reverence. In his youth, Mandela was a man on the make: a rising lawyer with an eye for pretty girls and smart suits, a man who aimed to be rich. He had no interest in damaging his career by associating with the toothless ANC. His plan was to beat the whites at their own game, by becoming better educated and richer than they were. Here was our chance to present a character most can identify with, not a saint, and not a self-appointed liberator. My early drafts contained scenes of Mandela’s womanizing, of his adulteries, and his aggression to his first wife, Evelyn. We were checking my work with members of Mandela’s circle, specifically with his long-time prison comrade Ahmed Kathrada, known as Kathy. Kathy did raise questions about possible disrespect over these scenes. We made the case for presenting Mandela as a fallible hero, and he accepted it. Along the way, we understood that here, in Mandela’s family life, lay his greatest failure, and his greatest suffering. His chosen path in effect destroyed two families. This became significant as the movie took shape for an essentially dramatic reason: when a story ends in victory for the protagonist, it only satisfies the audience if that victory is seen to be earned. This demands that a price be paid. In Mandela’s case, he paid the price of personal happiness.

The third challenge, the politics, proved to be intractable. There was just no way we could follow each phase of the ANC’s evolution, let alone Mandela’s, as they passed from non-violence to armed struggle, from negotiation to pragmatic compromise. In its place, we substituted a human equivalent, which enabled us to tell the story of the political divide in emotional terms. This was the marriage of Nelson and Winnie. We only realized we could do this quite late in the day, when we were searching for ways to carry the long passive years in prison without letting the movie grind to a halt. Our answer then was to cut away to show what was happening to Winnie. In doing so we discovered that we could encapsulate the two political paths — armed struggle versus negotiated peace — in these two individuals. The drama then becomes both political and personal. As Winnie is driven by her tormentors down the path of extreme violence, Nelson is quietly moving toward a strategy of compromise. This insight led to a further structural development. For many drafts, we had taken the story only as far as Mandela’s release from prison. Now we saw that the story of his marriage needed to reach its sad conclusion, with his public separation from her after his release. This framework made it possible to maintain dramatic drive through the four years from his release to his election as president. So in this ever-evolving way, we stumbled forward to our final shape.

The challenge of explaining Mandela’s core achievement was more intellectual. It involved identifying his key insight, its moment of delivery, and then dramatizing it. Everyone knows Mandela forgave his enemies. But how did forgiveness translate into power? Our answer was to focus on his key perception about fear. Mandela was the victim of powerful oppressors. He and the oppressed races had good reason to fear the white regime. But he understood that they did what they did out of fear of their victims. It’s counterintuitive, but it’s powerfully true. Their fear drove their repression. So if Mandela could take away the fear, there was hope of reconciliation. This analysis gave us the means of essentialising the years of negotiations, and it informed our choice of the speeches Mandela gives in the film. One other quality we added, a personal favorite of mine: we showed him as a leader who was prepared to tell his people — his voters — when they were wrong. I long for such a leader in our Western democracies today.

The last and greatest challenge came, of course, with the actual making of the movie. Ours was an independent production, it needed finance, and for that we needed a bankable director and stars. Over the years, several directors came and went, and we met just about every black movie star. The elements never quite came together. Finally our producer tired of chasing big names, and with Mandela himself now retired and aging, decided to go for a younger, fresher generation of talent. Justin Chadwick came on board to direct. He it was who now faced the giant task of creating a compelling drama. He decided from the first that our movie had a unique opportunity to be shot among and with the very people who had lived through its events. Not since Pontecorvo shot The Battle of Algiers in the same streets and with the same people as its characters, has a movie been so embedded in the reality of its setting. The crowds Justin deployed were the same people who cheered Mandela on his release. The generals who salute him as president are real generals, in their own uniforms, choosing to honor the man who united the nation. Justin adopted a style he calls “360-degree filmmaking,” where he throws his cast into a fully populated world, and shoots with multiple cameras as if covering a live event. His cameras are always alive, always on the move, as if only discovering what’s going to happen as it happens. The result is a film style as contemporary as a Bourne movie, as immediate as news footage, welded to a classic story structure. This is highly innovative filmmaking, expensive, too, but you get more for your dollar in South Africa.

Finally, most strikingly, Justin cast Idris Elba and Naomi Harris for his leads. All the work we put in over the years would have come to nothing without great actors. It doesn’t always happen. I’ve been on movies that were killed by bad casting. This movie is crowned by two astonishing performances. See for yourself.

But the story of the making of the movie doesn’t end here. After it was shot, the first cut inevitably proved too long. Slowly, a leaner version emerged, and began to be tested. The results lived up to all our hopes. Excited, we took the film to the Toronto film Festival, only to be hit by several damp reviews. There seemed to be a disconnect between audiences and critics. The film was too traditional in form, said some critics, too earnest. We took the film back into the cutting room and did more work, tightening, sharpening, clarifying. We then conducted exhaustive tests with recruited audiences. We found ourselves getting unheard-of scores, in the high 90s, with people emerging from screenings deeply moved. We showed it to critics again, and at last the movie started to win official praise.

In the end, this is a moral movie, and I believe we’re not accustomed to that any more. It’s not cynical about human nature. It’s not a glorification of violence as the road to respect and power. It’s not a sentimental proposal that love can put right all wrongs. It tells of a man who dared to believe that his enemies wanted peace, and to use that insight to change his world. And it shows that such achievements come at a very high price. “Their only victory over me,” he says in our film, “is what they have done to my wife.”

That wife, Winnie, and all Mandela’s circle, have embraced the film, for all its simplifications. We take pride and comfort in that. Mandela the man has now left us. The legend lives on.
