Here's an interview with Garrett Clayton that also discusses his latest role in The Last Breakfast Club, which is a parody of the John Hughes 1980s film. I've done parody and I've always been fascinated with it because it's not always simple to do, and you never know how it's going to be received. Some of these die-hard fans will never forgive you.
Clayton steps into the role of Brian in the Los Angeles-based stage play based on the iconic John Hughes ’80s film. It sets the original movie in a post-apocalyptic world where the brain, the athlete, the basket case, the princess and the criminal have been locked in the library in what has become a never-ending Saturday of detention. Under the watchful tyrannical eye of the Principal Vernon (who has since become a zombie), the quintet of misfits deal with their new dystopian life in the Shermer High School.

Your Grindr "Preferences" Are Racist
If you are attracted to a specific type of man, don't let this guy know about it. Because he's going to call you a racist. And he's not even going to present a strong, intelligent argument. He'll just call you racist.
26-year-old Josh from L.A. has a some strong medicine for guys who still refuse to entertain the idea that maybe, just maybe, their “preferences” on Grindr are, in fact, racist.
“So many people on these apps use the word ‘preference’ to try to mask their prejudices,” he says. But, make no mistake, “letting someone’s race dictate whether you’d date them is racism.”
Here's the rest. He lost me with sushi.
More On Chechnya Gay Concentration Camps
No one in the mainstream seems to be paying much attention to this, which is a travesty. This is actually happening and no one is doing anything to stop it.
Two young men have come forward to open up about their experiences in Chechnya, where both were detained and beaten for being gay.
“I was kidnapped and kept for 12 days in a basement,” Gregory, 21, tells NPR. “I was beaten and interrogated.”
There's more here. It gets worse. Check out the comments. Someone in the comments posted this link where you can send a donation to help relocate gays in Chechnya to safe places. It looks legitimate to me, and simple to use.
