In addition to the guest star power, Ru brings in new judges - Queer Eye fashion expert Carson Kressley and Ross Matthews.

Executive Producer RuPaul had this to say about the new judges: "There is a gay Santa Claus! I asked for a new, wickedly funny, smart and experienced judge…and I got two! Ross and Carson are the perfect addition to the ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ family because they're not just show biz experts, they’re superfans and longtime lovers of the art of drag."

Mardi Gras jumps TV channels in 2015

It was the highest rating TV program to date for SBS2, and with record numbers comes a change. The free-to-air broadcaster has told us that the Parade will NOT be returning to SBS2 in 2015 - but instead will be "moved up" to their lead channel, SBS ONE.paradetv
SBS Director of Television, Tony Iffland said exclusively to Guidetogay.com “The broadcast of the 2014 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras on SBS 2 earlier this year attracted an incredibly strong audience. From this success, we have decided to elevate this iconic event and shift our coverage of the 2015 parade to SBS ONE. We are looking forward to capturing all the colour, spectacle and celebration of the 2015 Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras and delivering it to even more Australians via our primary channel on Sunday 8 March.”

It's an amazing move for both Mardi Gras and SBS - and it's a win for the community at large, who can both attend the parade in the flesh AND then watch it back on TV with the rest of the country. Its time to frock up, don your sequins and get camera ready so you can show YOUR passion!

Mardi Gras CEO, Michael Rolik said "SBS joined us for the first time last year to broadcast one of the world’s most spectacular night time parades. Having a TV broadcast of the Mardi Gras Parade is really important to our organisation. It enables us to reach regional, interstate and international audiences who can’t get to Sydney for the big night, and to share our celebration of pride and diversity with a broader audience. The move to SBS ONE for the 2015 event will help us reach an even greater audience, and we thank SBS for its commitment to Mardi Gras."

If you want to catch the parade in person, you can simply rock up on the night, or pre-plan and grab a reserved seat (it’s advisable) in the "Parade Sideshow" (click for tix). If you are a Mardi Gras member, you can be right in the heart of the action at the "Diamond Club" on Taylor Square. These seating and VIP spaces will sell out soon - so grab your tickets now.

See you at the parade, and don't forget to tune in to our friends at SBS on Sunday 8th March.

The nominations for the 72nd Golden Globe Awards were announced bright and early this morning at the Beverly Hilton hotel. This year’s nominees featured many LGBT-inclusive films and TV series.
normalheart
The HBO TV movie, ‘A Normal Heart’ was a clear favourite amongst voters. Directed by Ryan Murphy and written by Larry Kramer, the film depicts the rise of the HIV-AIDS crisis in New York City amongst gay people during the early 1980’s.

The emotional film earned a spot in the Best TV Movie or Mini-Series category. Mark Ruffalo was recognized in the Best Actor field for his performance as AIDS activist Ned Weeks, while Matt Bomer's role as the lover Weeks loses to the disease was shortlisted in the Supporting Actor category.

The lavish Stephen Sondheim musical ‘Into The Woods’ scored a nod for Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy, where it will compete against the heart-warming film, ‘Pride’ - which follows a group of gay and lesbian activists who decided to support the UK miner's strike in the 1980s. ‘Into The Woods’ star Emily Blunt was recognized in the Best Actress field, while Meryl Streep picked up a Supporting Actress nod for her role as the witch.
transparentThe critically acclaimed streaming series ‘Transparent’ was nominated for Best TV Series, Musical or Comedy, as well as Best Actor for Jeffrey Tambor's performance as Maura, a transgender woman coming out late in life. ‘Orange Is The New Black’ and ‘Girls’ were both shortlisted for Best TV Series, Musical or Comedy. Alan Cumming was also nominated for his supporting role on ‘The Good Wife’.

Jessica Lange’s marvelous performance in ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ earned her recognition in the Best Actress in a Mini-Series or TV Movie field, while Kathy Bates picked up a Supporting Actress nod for her work as the bearded lady.

The 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards, hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, will take place Sunday, January 11, 2015.

Simpsons Kang and Kodos a gay female couple!

simpsons-kang-and-kodos 612x380
Simpsons executive producer Al Jean lets slip after the Simpsons / Futurama cross over episode that aired last night.

“We’ve implied androgyny, we’ve implied that one might be a woman—we never said that both were, but why not? Who knows? We thought it was a great ending to get the [Futurama] aliens, and then we thought it was a good excuse to bring in Kang and Kodos,” Simpsons executive producer Al Jean tells EW. “People are asking: is this episode canon? And I go, ‘What really happened—did Homer really fall off a cliff all those times and live?’ But that being said: Yeah, sure, they’re Kang and Kodos Johnson. They’re a gay female couple in their species. They seemed to be married.”
