Glee’s Naya Rivera hosted as Kim Cattrall, The Kids Are All Right, and Latin pop star Christian Chavez were honored at the 22nd GLAAD Media Awards in San Francisco last night. Best-known for her performance on the long-running HBO series Sex and the City and the two feature films it spawned, Cattrall received the Golden Gate Award, which is presented to media professionals who, through their work, have increased the visibility and understanding of the LGBT community. “Kim Cattrall has not only grown acceptance of our community through storylines on shows like Sex and the City, but used her platform to speak out for equality,” GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios said in a statement. “We are proud to honor such a talented and passionate advocate.” Other winners include the Outstanding Spanish Language Music Artist to Christian Chavez, thCorporate Leader Award presented to AT&T, the Local Hero Award presented to Kara Swisher, the Outstanding Film (Wide Release) presented to The Kids Are All Right, and Outstanding Documentary presented to 8: The Mormon Proposition. Presenters and attendees included rugby superstar Ben Cohen, Mario Lopez, and Sara Ramirez. The GLAAD Media Awards recognize and honor media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives.
Even after Sex and the City 2 was savaged by critics, Sarah Jessica Parker is angling for a third film in the series. The Sex and the City sequel — based on the racy HBO show, which was based on Candace Bushnell’s New York Observer columns on single life in New York City — underperformed at the box office and majorly disappointed critics. Nevertheless, the show and movies’ star, Sarah Jessica Parker, tells the Los Angeles Times she’s ready for more. “I’d definitely tell that [third] story, and I know [gay creator] Michael [Patrick King] would do it right,” she says. “But maybe not now. Maybe in five years, you know?” Rumors have persisted that a movie will be made about Carrie Bradhaw’s early days, either as a teenager or 20-something — Parker doesn’t seem too thrilled with that idea. “There are a lot of important and interesting stories that 21-year-olds can tell,” Parker says. “I don’t begrudge any 21-year-old the opportunity to tell their stories. They prove to us on an everyday basis that they’re interesting. Even their narcissism is interesting. Even their inertia is interesting. Even their tonal speech patterns are interesting. But I don’t think we can pretend to go back. It’s creating two histories. It’s like, ‘Oh I didn’t know that about Carrie Bradshaw.’” Read the full story here.
Not sure really what to think of it. But I might as well end up watching it. Why not? Is not like there is no people I’d like to avoid for an hour and a half.

“Maybe our mistakes are what make our fate.
Without them, what would shape our lives?
Perhaps if we never veered off course, we wouldn’t fall in love, or have babies, or be who we are.
After all, seasons change.
So do cities.
People come into your life and people go.
But it’s comforting to know the ones you love are always in your heart.
And if you’re very lucky, a plane ride away”.
Sex and the City director Michael Patrick King has lined up Meryl Streep, Oprah Winfrey, and Sandra Bullock for his next film,reports entertainment website Deadline. King reveals that the film will be “an ensemble comedy set in the world of a Home Shopping-type network, where characters make their way through the maze of mania that surrounds marketing, marriages and the media.” “I came up with the idea of writing for Meryl, Sandy and Oprah, and it became so specific to them that I wanted to be sure I had interest from these ladies,” King says. “I put it in front of each of them and they all said yes. To have access to these women, tell them this story, and hear ‘yes’ was almost like a Greek mythological journey, with me going from one goddess to the next. It was humbling. They’re all unique, and the idea of writing parts that three strong women will play is such a challenge. Their body of work is beyond reproach. It’s also appealing to craft a character for Oprah to come back and play that’s not Oprah.” King plans to finish the screenplay by January and, depending on the availability of the trio of actresses, begin filming next summer.
Cynthia Nixon is way more than just a fabulous actress. Every since she came out, she’s been doing activist work for the LGBTQ Community (her community). She’s attacked the Adoption Ban on Gay Couples in Florida. She’s part of “Fight Back New York”, that searches to replace members of New York’s House of Congress and the Senate that opposed the legalization of Gay Marriage last year. She’s spoken against Proposition 8 in California; etc. Now, here she is speaking at The New Yorker Festival on Saturday at the festival for a panel called “Love and Obstacles: The Case for Gay Marriage.”
“When women got the vote, they did not redefine voting,” Nixon said. “When African-Americans got the right to sit at a lunch counter alongside white people, they did not redefine eating out. They were simply invited to the table. That is all we want to do; we have no desire to change marriage. We want to be entitled to not only the same privileges but the same responsibilities as straight people.”
We need more activist like her. And we do have more, but still, we need more.
