10. TV: Be Good Johnny Weir
Even before Johnny Weir officially came out as a gay man in his new memoir, Welcome to My World, Logo had already scooped up a second season of the Olympic figure skater’s documentary series. Gearing up for that summer premiere, which is currently filming, Logo will spotlight the soul beneath the sequins when it replays the nine-episode debut season — originally shown on the Sundance Channel — beginning January 25.

JOYCE DIDONATO X300 | ADVOCATE.COM

9. CD: Diva, Divo, Joyce DiDonato
On her latest album, which drops January 25, DiDonato is having a major Victor/Victoria moment. The celebrated mezzo-soprano proves herself a master storyteller while tackling arias typically sung by both women and men — her Romeo and Le Prince Charmant are highlights — from her favorite operatic adaptations of classics like Romeo and Juliet, Cinderella, and Faust by Bellini, Berlioz, Massenet, Mozart, Rossini, Strauss, and more.

TEA AND SYMPATHY X300 | ADVOCATE.COM

8. DVD: Tea and Sympathy
Newly remastered and available from the Warner archives at WBShop.com along with other Vincente Minnelli classics The Cobweb, The Reluctant Debutante, and Two Weeks in Another Town, this 1956 adaptation of Robert Anderson’s controversial Broadway drama stars John Kerr as “sister boy” Tom, a bullied teen, and Deborah Kerr as the woman who comforts him. Tom’s prep school roommate and housemaster are also debatably closeted.
