10. TV: Entourage
The eighth and final season of Entourage premieres July 24 on HBO, which means the beginning of the end for out actor Rex Lee (pictured, right) as assistant-turned-agent Lloyd, who injected some much-needed gay energy to the hyper-hetero comedy about Hollywood wheeling and dealing. But an Entourage film is in the works, and Lee will appear this fall as Mr. Wolf, a high school guidance counselor, in ABC’s Suburgatory.
9. THEATER: No Fats, No Femmes: Tales of Dialing-Up, Coming Out & Getting Off
After his successful solo debut this past spring, gay writer-performer Tim Paul returns to Chicago’s Annoyance Theatre to clear his Internet history with a new one-man show opening July 24. With a Kleenex box at the ready, the raconteur explores his online etiquette and shortcomings as he shares anecdotes about his sordid experiences cruising sites such as Craigslist, Manhunt, and Bear411.

8. FILM: The Myth of the American Sleepover
Like American Graffiti as reimagined by Gus Van Sant, David Robert Mitchell’s impressive feature debut — premiering July 22 in New York and July 29 in L.A. — follows a group of lost and lovesick teens on the last night of summer in suburban Detroit. A standout in a cast of terrific unknowns, Wyatt McCallum (pictured, right) costars as Marcus, a closeted gay teen who’s in love with his handsome best friend.
