7. THEATER: Broadway Backwards 6
Produced by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and billed as “the only Broadway event custom-made for the gay and lesbian community, our friends, and family,” the annual one-night affair returns February 7 at the Longacre Theatre with Broadway’s brightest stars — including out performers Clay Aiken, Alan Cumming, Colman Domingo, and Denis O’Hare — singing show tunes originally intended for the opposite gender.
6. DVD: Life as We Know It
Available February 8, this successful rom-com about an unlikely pair forced to raise the baby of deceased friends — out director Greg Berlanti’s first feature since 2000’s The Broken Hearts Club — has more going for it than Josh Duhamel in white boxer-briefs. It also has Rob Huebel and Bill Brochtrup as a friendly gay neighbor couple who enjoy ogling Duhamel in his white boxer-briefs as they lend support to the unexpected parents.
5. CONCERT: Kristian Hoffman
A Klaus Nomi and Rufus Wainwright collaborator who made up punk group the Mumps with An American Family’s Lance Loud, out artist Kristian Hoffman promotes his latest baroque-pop CD, Fop, with a February 4 concert at the Steve Allen Theater in Los Angeles. The evening will also feature performances from Hoffman’s friends like Ann Magnuson, True Blood’s Todd Lowe, and America’s Got Talent’s Prince Poppycock.
