"i hate this picture. i’m sorry. but i see “death"  a dying man  i hate this picture."    

Are you serious?   You see a dying man?   Unbelievable.   So his relationship with Thomas is now killing him?   Why don’t you go have one of your psychic conversations with Michael so he can assure you that you are really “the one” and  he is okay?

A galaxy of stars have come together to support the Ali Forney Center’s Shred Of Hope, an online auction in which you can bid on original t-shirts created by gay celebrities and straight allies. Each of the participants worked with designers at the Manhattan-based fetish wear company Nasty Pig to create one-of-a-kind “shredders,” which are sort of not-tank-tops.

Among the participants are activist and author Dan Savage and his husband Terry Miller, Tony winner Alan Cumming, Tony winner Jeff Whitty, Oscar winner Dustin Lance Black, talk show host Andy Cohen, rock star Bob Mould, MSNBC commentator Keith Boykin, Animal Planet host Scott Lope, rocker JD Samson, actress Ally Sheedy, pop superstars Michael Stipe, Adam Lambert and Jake Shears, and many more.

Via press release:

This June 20th trailblazing menswear label Nasty Pig will launch Shred of Hope, a fundraiser for the Ali Forney Center (AFC), the nation’s largest services and advocacy organization working with lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) runaway and homeless youth.

Shred of Hope is an auction of one-of-a-kind “Shredder” t-shirts created by celebrities. The auction will take place entirely online from June 20th through June 27th at ShredofHope.com. 100% of the proceeds of Shred of Hope will support AFC’s work to protect and empower homeless LGBT youth, and to help them in becoming safe and independent as they move from adolescence to adulthood.

On June 20th Nasty Pig and the Ali Forney Center will host a launch party for Shred of Hope at the iconic Rootstein Gallery in New York City. Nasty Pig models will walk the floor selling opportunities to win one-of-a-kind Shred of Hope items and experiences to benefit the AFC.

Kalup Linzy: One Life to Heal

The New York Video Artist’s Many Personalities Shine in an Art Basel Hong Kong Debut

Florida-born, Brooklyn-based artist Kalup Linzy casts Michael Stipe and Leo Fitzpatrick as his co-stars in the tragi-camp world of the fictional Braswell family in his newest feat, Conversations wit de Churen X: One Life to Heal. The video revisits characters that Linzy has been working with for over a decade in acclaimed soap opera-inspired films such as All My Churen (2003). From overbearing mama to wayward son, Linzy plays nearly every character in his draggy world of high drama, song and dance, where disturbing effects such as voice modifiers give foreboding electronic depth to the Braswells’ skewed universe. Though a celebrated figure in the art world, with work housed in MoMA’s permanent collection among others, Linzy’s engagement with the vocabulary of daytime television runs surprisingly deep. He has crossed into more popular forms, appearing in episodes of soap General Hospital during the same period in which his sometime collaborator James Franco infamously guest-starred. While here Linzy follows the disappearance of a camp chanteuse named Taiwan from a cruise ship, leaving us with her body slumped on the shore, this weekend at Art Basel Hong Kong fair the artist will reincarnate his tragic diva at a dinner for art-world luminaries organized by Yana Peel, held on an old boat decorated in the style of 1930s Shanghai.

This is amazing. Check out the rest of Kalup Linzy’s videos.
