Gay Thursday (OK, its Monday - so sue me)
Reviving a long time tradition at the Cheese, we renew Gay Thursday*, recognizing that its Monday, but I couldn't find any really gay* stories last Thursday.
The Golden Globes are out. This is definitely a colorful, happy day for the nominees. And they include:
(1) Brokeback Mountain, a story about two rugged gay cowboys concealing their homosexual affair. This led the field with seven nominations, including best drama queen.
(2) "Capote" star Philip Hoffman was nominated for playing the happy, colorful Truman Capote.
(3) "Transamerica" star Felicity Huffman was nominated for a role in which she plays a man preparing for surgery to become a woman.
Oh, and some movies and actors who play run of the mill mobsters, adulterers and liberal journalists fighting against Commie bashing Senators also got nominated.
This all sounds so familar.
* Gay: 1 a : happily excited : MERRY b : keenly alive and exuberant : having or inducing high spirits 2 a : BRIGHT, LIVELY b : brilliant in color
