10. COMEDY: This Filthy World Goes Hollywood, John Waters
Revered and reviled for films like Pink Flamingos, Female Trouble, and Desperate Living, gay provocateur John Waters brings his wildly popular one-man show — a vaudevillian stand-up lecture on show business, the art world, and his own career — to UCLA Live’s Royce Hall on February 23, hard-targeting Hollywood for Oscars week. The evening will feature emcee Matthew Gray Gubler and musical guest Elvis Perkins.
9. TV: America’s Next Top Model
Last cycle, ex-Hooters waitress Kayla Ferell became the highest placing out lesbian in Top Model history. There's a bisexual Texas native named Sara Longoria on the high fashion-focused sweet 16th cycle, which premieres February 23 on the CW, and you can still count on stylish gay representation by anti-dreckitude judge André Leon Talley, photo shoot director Jay “Mr. Jay” Manuel, and runway coach J. “Miss J” Alexander.
8. CD: Into the Dark Unknown, Holcombe Waller
Reflecting six years of the out Portland-based artist’s wanderings through the Pacific Northwest, this gorgeous chamber-folk album features melancholy first single “Bored of Memory,” which has a sweet gay video. “The Unicorn” was inspired by a hookup with a sexy closet case, and the title track expresses Waller’s frustration with marriage inequality. He celebrates the release with a February 24 concert at New York’s Joe’s Pub.
