Rand Paul Workplace Controversy; Tab Hunter Documentary

Rand Paul Controversy

I think by now everyone knows I don't get political here because I know (and understand) the political diversity within the LGBT+ community. A diversity that's not always recognized. I'm also not all that political myself.

However, this has been making the news all week and I thought it was worthy of mention.

But before he goes, Paul is reminding us that his so-called new ideas are really just the usual homophobia. In a rant that Mike Huckabee would be proud of, Paul endorsed the closet in the workplace, supported the right of employers to fire us and basically said if you don’t like it, get another job. “The things you do in your house — if you leave them in your house — they wouldn’t have to be part of the workplace,” Paul insisted.

You can read the rest here.  

Tab Hunter Documentary

Here's more regarding the Tab Hunter documentary I've posted about before. He was one of Hollywood's leading men at one time, and also gay and totally in the closet.


In the new documentary Tab Hunter Confidential (adapted from the actor’s 2005 memoir), the still-charismatic 84-year-old candidly shares his fear of being outed during his hey day, his love affair with Anthony Perkins and the incredible story of how he endured to become a happy, healthy survivor of Hollywood’s roller coaster. Produced by Allan Glaser, Hunter’s partner of three decades, the film (in select theaters today) includes a trove of vintage footage of the heartthrob, as well as new interviews with John Waters (his Polyester director), Debbie Reynolds, Robert Wagner, George Takei and former gossip queen Rona Barrett.  

The rest is here. I think the unfortunate thing is that the fear of being outed is still happening today and not just in Hollywood.
