'Clay Cane Live' Episode 88: October 8, 2013

On last night’s show, we had a heated debate about the motorcyclists who attached the SUV in New York City.  Are we jumping the gun without knowing the facts?  Do motorcycle groups have a history of causing chaos in the streets of New York City?  Our listeners sound off … plus, we talk bisexuality (can a woman date a bisexual man?) and Britney Spears alleged patronizing of gay men.  Beyonce enthusiast and one of my favorite writers ever, Michael Arceneaux, was our guest.

I am very sorry to report the passing of my old friend Donald Andrew Agarrat. He was a photographer, web designer and activist who chronicled black LGBT life in New York City and Harlem for more than a decade.

Donald was the one person most responsible for my first blog, keithboykin.com….

Review: 12 Years a Slave

image

Check out my review of 12 Years a Slave at BET.com.  The movie is in theaters October 18 and believe the hype — Steve McQueen created a masterpiece.  I said it all in the review but be sure to see this film.  I don’t care who you are, the film is as important as Roots and Schindler’s List — McQueen held zero back.  

Happy Birthday, Sylvester

Sylvester would’ve been 66 years-old today.  The disco icon was disrupting gender norms before it was a popular or edgy — in Sylvester’s time, a man in drag was considered sick.  But Sylvester knew he was blessed with a talent for performance art, and most importantly, a phenomenal voice.  English journalist Stephen Brogan said, “He only happened once. He was a radical and a visionary in terms of queerness, music and race.”

Originally from the Watts area of Los Angeles, California he was known for songs like 1986’s “Someone Like You,” 1978’s "Dance (Disco Heat)" and the epic "You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)."  As unconventional as Sylvester was, he still had huge hits and in many ways was accepted by the “mainstream.”  It just goes to show you how far being your authentic self will take you — even an over six foot, black man in drag who sang in his falsetto 40 years ago.  

Sylvester passed away in 1988 at 41, but on this day — let’s not forget the legend.

Check out my favorite Sylvester performance below.
