Last night I was was in LA for the reading of Terrence McNally's play Some Men, a benefit for the Courage Campaign. It was such a great night, and I loved hearing the play again. I had seen it in NYC when it premiered a few years back and it was great to perform it. It is a sort of collage of experiences of gay mens' lives over the course of a century. I think Terrence is such a great writer and a lovely man, and indeed the whole team last night - which included actors Jason Ritter, Justin Kirk, Michael McKean, John Glover, Luke Macfarlane, Josh Stamberg, David Alan Grier, Lily Tomlin, director Micheal Morris - made it such a great experience, and the schlep from Miami and now back to NYc was so worth it for such a great cause.
Cyndi Lauper shot this PSA about the horrible recent spate of gay student suicides. It's really powerful. Pass it along.
