In this drought time, I've decided to increase my awareness of gay issues by working my way through Afterelton.com's "50 best gay movies." Number 3 is Latter Days, and I like it so much I thought I'd share. It's a story about a young missionary coming to terms with his gayness (and falling in love) in relation to a religion and family that says it's a sin and he'll burn in hell. I can't help but think Clay went through some of the same torment (even though he says otherwise). Anyhow, I watched it on NetFlix instant play if anyone is interested. I'd love to hear what someone else thinks of it.

I watched Shelter too--and liked it also. Why didn't I know there were these kinds of movies out there? A whole world invisible to the straight one?

Or just me????

Hey wandacleo, good for you. I actually own a copy of Latter Days but it's been years since I watched it. You have inspired me to pull it out and watch it again this weekend. :)

ETA: Can you share the Top 50 list with us?

Ah, an excellent question! It's a screenshot from the very first 36-second video I ever took of Clay, on August 9, 2003, from front row center of the Orlando AI concert. It's so short because security (AKA Jerome Junior) was bearing down on me. Back then we were allowed photos but video was verboten. Somewhere round here I have a motion gif/avi suitable for boards that allow that kind of thing.

ETA: Found it!

I got braver in Tampa, and thus was recreated the legend of Tampa 1:04, which has been giffed and uploaded just about everywhere.

Anyway, here's a YouSendIt, about 20Mb original .avi file of this lesser known early piece of Clay.

Torch Song Trilogy and Philadephia are two of my favourite movies. Most people have seen the latter, with Tom Hanks, but TST is also excellent. I'd be interested in the list too.

wanda... thanks for the info! I have a grandson that I wouldn't be surprised if he is gay. I'd like to also increase my understanding of the gay issues better to help him if I can.

Kim Happy Anniversary

Anyone watching Mariah Carey on Oprah. The two fans who got to meet her were so funny & cute. She did sing I Want to know what love is which I also heard on the radio last night.

Still like Clay's version & it's not even one of my favorite songs from him.

I have a copy burned to a data DVD. I can run you a copy and give it to you at the gala if you want.

ETA: The avi file is about 700 mb if anyone can think of a good way to share it. I don't think we have the room on the goldarngirl site.

Happy Birthday ldyjocelyn!

So apparently we are at risk of frost tonight. Going down to 3 C (about 42 F) tonight. I'd better cover up the tomatoes!

Back from dinner...went to a little Italian Restaurant in the area...first-timers get a tour of the kitchen and the even have a table in the kitchen if you want to eat in there...reservations only...too cute!

Food was fabulous and were serenaded by Dean (That's Amore), Frank and Nat King Cole while we ate...it was perfect!

Hubby is now laying in bed watching the baseball game, while I am talking to you...we are such romantics, LOL!

Can you cut it in half? Hmmm...limit for sendspace is 300. Cut it in thirds in spots where it wouldn't matter too much?
