Trans-focused documentary series “Becoming Us” is coming to ABC Family

From Ryan Seacrest Production, ABC Family’s new docu-series centers on a teenager named Ben as his father lives authentically as a woman. The series will follow Ben, his family and his friends as they support one another through this unexpected journey and navigate their new world. 

The visibility of transgender people has grown exponentially in the last year. Through magazines, hit television shows, reality series, books and films, the stories and lives of the transgender community are being brought into homes across the nation. 


Some people know the price of everything and the value of nothing.

I know, that’s a tired old saw, but hard-driving financial guru Eve (Meg Gibson) isn’t above adapting it to suit her needs on her TV show “Money Makeover.”

“Here’s what I learned about money,” she says. “People will hold onto it with everything they’ve got when they confuse their self-worth with their net worth.”


Charlie laboriously drags himself (with the help of a walker) from an offstage room to his sagging living-room couch. He doesn’t sit, really, but plops, because his morbid obesity doesn’t allow him much grace or mobility. This couch in a messy apartment in Moscow, Idaho is his world.

Charlie (Andrew Oswald) spends a fair amount of time on his laptop, correcting student writing for his online class. Once in a while he masturbates to gay porn. Sometimes he has visitors, usually Liz (Judy Bauerlein), a nurse who looks in on him, straightens up the place and brings him (too much) food.

I have a new guy in my life. His name is Joseph, but his friends and family called him Joe so I will too.

I met Joe a few months ago through Don Stewart, the proprietor of MacLeod's Books where I was in browsing one Saturday morning when Don suggested I take a look at a shoebox full of papers and photos that he thought might interest me.

THEATER REVIEW: "Singin' in the Rain"

Adapting a film for the stage can be tricky business, especially if the film is a beloved classic like “Singin’ In The Rain.” The well-known 1952 Gene Kelly-Donald O’Connor-Debbie Reynolds vehicle was also enormously successful as a musical in England and hit Broadway in 1985, but hasn’t been seen there since.

San Diego Musical Theatre offers a chance to see the stage version through June 7 at the Spreckels Theatre.

J.K. Rowling reveals awesome reason for challenging Westboro Church's hate speech

Ireland became the first country in the world to legalize same-sex marriage through a popular vote last week, prompting emotional celebrations, outpourings of support and, yes, a little bit of hate.

"Paternity Leave" might be the world's funniest "gaymantic" comedy

There are some movies that take a situation that no one else has ever thought of before and make it into a successful and funny story. However there are some movies that have premises so preposterous it takes a very strong suspension of disbelief to enjoy them.

“Paternity Leave” is a film that may not be original in its storyline of a pregnant man (remember 1978’s Rabbit Test, or 1994’s Junior) but it is original in that the pregnant man is gay and in a gay relationship.
