BUFFALO— „BUA Summer Camp is in session! Audiences went cuckoo for THE BIRDS ATTACK!, flipped their wigs for MOMMIE QUEEREST, and died laughing for L'IMITATION OF LIFE. Jimmy Janowski and a full manifest of Buffalo stage stars embark on POSEIDON: THE UPSIDE DOWN MUSICAL. One of the first and best specimens of the disaster movie genre, THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE is archetype in full bloom: huge sets, big budget, a star-studded, award winning ensemble cast, and an over the top premise. As the celebratory clock strikes midnight, the luxury liner SS Poseidon is hit by a 90 high tidal wave and capsizes, forcing the cast of characters to climb from the top, now the bottom, up through the ship to safety. The production promises fabulous special effects and jaw dropping musical production numbers such as Just Panties (What Else Do I Need?), Keep On Climbing!, Bad Girls Need Love Too and (In The Water) Im A Very Skinny Lady, sang by Janowski as Mrs. Rosen, the part played in the movie by Shelley Winters.

Every Student Has A Choice When It Comes To Bullying

When you are in high school, everything seems to matter so much - from wearing the right clothes to hanging around with the right friends and from getting the right grades to getting accepted to the right college. The need to fit in and be accepted is felt by every single student regardless of race, sexuality, social status or physical appearance. Even "popular" kids feel the need to fit it, which is exactly the reason why some students choose to participate in bullying. I use the word "choose" because every student has a choice not to participate. They can choose to be above bullying. They can choose to reach out and support other students rather than to turn a blind eye or cut them down. But unfortunately, some students don't have the courage or fortitude to make the right choice. full story

Financial Considerations for Gay and Lesbian Couples Getting Married in New York

Congratulations to couples getting married under New York State's new provision for civil marriage.

LGBT History Month: Henry Gerber, Ahead Of His Time

Chicago — On May 15, 1871, the German Criminal Code was revised to include Paragraph 175, a law making sexual acts between males illegal. The first challenge to the law came in 1897 when Dr. Magnus Hirschfeld founded the gay organization Wissenschaftlich-humanitres Komitee (Scientific-Humanitarian Committee). Its first action was to draft a petition against Paragraph 175 with 6,000 signatures of prominent people in the arts, politics and the medical profession; it failed to have any effect. full story

LGBT History Month: Baron von Steuben, Dont Ask, Dont Tell, Franklin to Washington; France to the U.S.

This is an updated version of an article that appeared as part of the 2012 LGBT History Month Project.

Philadelphia, Pa — After years of studying almost anything available on Baron Friedrich Wilhelm von Steuben, the material suggesting that von Steuben was gay is so overwhelming that the only thing that can be asked of anyone who doubts it is, "Prove to me he's not." There literally is not room in this article to list all the facts that point to a practice of homosexuality on the part of von Steuben. full story
