Billy on the Street

America's favorite unabashedly gay comedian, Billy Eichner, returns to his open-air shenanigans in the new season of Billy on the Street. The TruTV series is a game show of sorts. Celebrities will participate in challenges that often involve interactions with unsuspecting pedestrians in New York City. In the viral "Julianne Moore Acting Attack," for example, Julianne Moore would reenact scenes from her films for tips. This season promises such games as "Dead or Boring" and "Name 20 White People in 30 Seconds." Join in the fun Tuesday at 10:30 p.m. Eastern on TruTV .

Lazy Eye

Directed by Tim Kirkman (Dear Jesse), Lazy Eye follows Dean, a 30-something graphic designer from Los Angeles, as he reconnects with his old flame Alex. The two go through a physical and emotional journey on a weekend together in Joshua Tree. Things get steamy, as revealed by leads Lucas Near-Verbrugghe and Aaron Costa Ganis, who recently discussed the technical and emotional complexities of filming their gay sex scene. Lazy Eye comes out in New York and Los Angeles this weekend, with a DVD and VOD release following next Friday. Watch the trailer below.


Mary J. Blige, "Thick of It"

The Queen of Hip Hop Soul is back with a new song and video that feels very current: "Thick of It." Blige's stirring, lush voice is a panacea for our communal heartbreak. The beautiful single comes from her forthcoming album, Strength of a Woman, due later this year. Blige is currently appearing with Maxwell on the King + Queen of Hearts Tour, which runs until December 14 in Chicago.

Emeli Sande, Love Live the Angels

We were wowed by Scottish singer Emeli Sande's first album, Our Version of Events (you likely remember the infectious song "Next to Me"), and are thrilled she's back after a four-year hiatus. Her sophomore album, Love Live the Angels, is out now and garnering outstanding reviews. LLTA features the single "Hurts," which feels very apropos during this excruciating week.

Trevor NextGen's Bazaar

As we try to process the trauma of the presidential election, a group that seeks to prevent suicide among LGBT youth is raising funds tonight. Trevor NextGen's Bazaar is a fabulous party that benefits the Trevor Project. There will be a hosted bar, great food, and a silent auction from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Diamond Horseshoe in New York City; if you're an Impact Circle Donor, Trevor Star, or Table Buyer, you can go to the Impact Hour, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., with build-your-own cocktails, music by Queer Urban Orchestra, and a performance by Touch Events. Then the after-party happens from 10 p.m. to midnight at Therapy, and it features Marti Gould Cummings and Holly Box Springs. Find all the info at the event website, where you can also make a donation to this crucial cause even if you can't go.


Orlando Pride

We need Pride now more than ever, and especially in the city of Orlando, which saw the tragedy at Pulse nightclub in June. Come Out With Pride Orlando was originally scheduled for early October but had to be postponed due to Hurricane Matthew. The main event will be Saturday, with a festival, brunch, entertainment, fireworks, a Taste of Pride foodie event, and what's billed as the most colorful parade in Orlando. Celebrities scheduled to perform or attend include singer Brian Justin Crum of America's Got Talent, Katya from RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars, Queer as Folk cast members Michelle Clunie and Scott Lowell, singer and LGBT ally Alexx Mack, comedian Alec Mapa, TruTV star Scott Nevins, trans celebrity Jazz Jennings, and Broadway stars Max von Essen, Max Crumm, and Darius de Haas. Find all the details here, and celebrate being Orlando Strong.
