4. BLOG: DLNQNT
This irreverent pop culture blog skewers memes and celebrates hedonism. Features include “Aural Addiction,” which highlights esoteric party jams, and “Binge & Purge,” which promotes culinary indulgence. Though not an LGBT blog per se, DLNQNT also offers “Queen Please!” a section devoted to drag culture — Sherry Vine, Lady Bunny, and Pandora Boxx are recent interviewees — and “Broadway Scandal,” which “puts the t&a in theater.” DLNQNT.com
3. DVD: Truth or Dare
Filmmaker Alek Keshishian was given unprecedented access to Madonna, perhaps at the height of her fame and power, to record the entertainer on and off stage during her phenomenal Blond Ambition world tour in 1990. The following year this hit film — still the eighth-highest-grossing documentary of all time — introduced fans to the sometimes outrageous antics of her motley crew of dancers, most of whom were gay. Twenty-one years later, genitals are again exposed, threatened arrests are avoided, and water bottles are fellated, as Truth or Dare makes its debut on Blu-ray Tuesday.
2. TV: Savage U
Dan Savage takes a rollicking road trip with producer-sidekick Lauren
Hutchinson to help solve the sex dilemmas of college students around the
country in this relentlessly entertaining and occasionally very moving new series. From the serious (an overweight guy recalls humiliating rejection he's experienced and gets solid advice from Savage) to the silly ("Does semen really clear up your skin?"), there’s no Q that he won’t A. Premieres Tuesday on MTV.
