Life has a funny way of putting things into perspective. Last weekend I was down in South Florida attending the Winter Party, an annual fundraiser for the LGTBQ Task Force.

“I want Allison Williams as a boy to take my gay virginity.” – Zach Braff chimes in with his positive comments about the latest Peter Pan.  Clap if you believe in fairies.

“Basically, gay sex, especially for the first time, is really f–king painful.” – Daniel Radcliffe discusses playing poet Allen Ginsberg in “Kill Your Darlings”.  Of course, it’s not that painful to simulate gay sex on film – unless you’re a Method actor.

“What I say in the book is, ‘A BJ a day keeps the divorce attorney away’.” – Niecy Nash shares her secret for a successful marriage.  Who am I to argue with someone who fixed Sherri Shepherd up with her most recent husband?

“I’m proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me.” – Apple CEO Tim Cook discusses his sexual orientation publicly for the first time.  I suppose I’d get more excited if I owned an iAnything.  But as a PC devotee, the best I can muster up is […]

“If everybody likes you – you’re pretty dull.” – Bette Davis’ quote might as well have been directed at Joan Rivers…or me.  Neither one of us has ever been called dull. This week, I celebrated a milestone.  I have been writing this column for 19 years.  Yes, I know I barely look a day over […]

“Rarely.” – Larry King’s answer when Howard Stern asked if he masturbates.
