Pride! Pride! Pride!

Howdy Do Sweeties!

Happy Pride Week Bitches! As ever your faithful Hagatha, I look forward to taking it to the streets, holding your hand. Here, see? How pretty I am in pink? Oh! That's usually a question you ask me.

Speaking of questions big and small (no, really, BIG and small), take note -- I've gone all virtual and shit. My column, Ask A Hag Supreme is featured monthly on OUT ABOUT BROOKLYN! Want to know what's happening in the LGBT community from BAM to Bushwick? Toiling through ISH after ISH with your boy/girl/hag? Don't get all shy on my ass. Write in with your questions and we'll fix your dilemma Hag style, STAT. 'Cos that's how a good Hag do. 

Chaz Is For Charles
According to TMZ, Chastity Bono,  civil rights advocate, journalist, author and child of the ULTIMATE gay icon Cher, is in the early stages of changing his gender -- transitioning from female to male.

Bono, the child of legendary entertainers 
Sonny and Cher, began the process earlier this year, shortly after his 40th birthday.

"Yes, it's true -- Chaz, after many years of consideration, has made the courageous decision to honor his true identity," confirmed Bono's publicist, Howard Bragman.

"He is proud of his decision and grateful for the support and respect that has already been shown by his loved ones. It is Chaz's hope that his choice to transition will open the hearts and minds of the public regarding this issue, just as his 'coming out' did nearly 20 years ago. We ask that the media respect Chaz's privacy during this long process as he will not be doing any interviews at this time."

Congrats! I hope he eventually does give an interview though. Part of being out is speaking out!

Tony Tony Tonys!
What an action packed evening! First, the eternally lovely Neil Patrick Harris did a phenomenal job of hosting. He serves as the perfect example that an actor can come out, keep a job playing a straight man and climb a rung professionally. So kiss BOTH rrs in Harris, ol' musty closet dwellers. 

Next, I recognize the night's first winner, Roger Robinson, as the nice man I spent hours upon hours chatting with while stranded waiting for the same flight at LAX last November. 

Then at the end of the Rock of Ages medley, I hear the Hub say, "Holy Shit! Did you see that?!" And we proceeded to rewind Bret Michaels getting clotheslined by the set about a thousand times. It was the perfect live telecast!

Now, Michaels' reps are bitching to that the Tonys blew off the severity of his injuries. "I find it surprising that a Tony spokesperson would brush off this incident with a comment stating 'Mr. Michaels missed his mark' with no mention of concern for his condition," the spokesperson said. "We realize the show is live and must go on, however, it is unfortunate that the show's host made light of the situation without having any knowledge of the severity of Bret's injuries."

Uh, perhaps Bret should look alive then because he seemed mighty content to stay front and center while the rest of his band had the wherewithal to beat a hasty retreat before the set changed.
Here it is if you missed it. It's so good, it just never gets old.

Okay, enough talk of straight fugly men. Let's now turn our thoughts to matters more attractive, shall we?

Hag Of The Week: Megan Fox

Just Jared posted that, when asked how she would stop the ruthless Megatron from demolishing the world, foxy Megan Fox told Total Film UK that she would “barter with him.”

She then went on to say, "instead of the entire planet, can you just take out all the white trash, hilbilly, anti-gay, supre bible-beating people in Middle America?" Beauty AND brains too! Well, I'll give her beauty and a wise observation.

A Gay Old Time

Hang in there past the first minute! It's well worth it.

That's it for now! Happy Happy Pride!
