WHEN WE RISE 

Whoever you are, you are not alone

How I wish I’d heard those words as I was coming up in my life.

I lived through this alone.

I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, far away from this struggle.

I struggled on my own until I discovered that I wasn’t the only one who was different.

I discovered others like me.

The process was long and prolonged. There was no internet then. The books that were available were few and difficult to come by.

Yet, I totally identify with the struggle.

That’s why we are not standing down now after the advances made since then.

I thank all of those who came before me.

I refuse to go back into the closet.

~A Love Letter to LGBT Activism~

When We Rise” was written and created by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black.

This mini-series event chronicles the real-life personal and political struggles, set-backs and triumphs of a diverse family of LGBT men and women who helped pioneer one of the last legs of the U.S. Civil Rights movement, from its turbulent infancy in the 20th century to the once unfathomable successes of today.

~Cleve Jones landed in San Francisco too late for the Summer of Love~

Fifty years ago, about 100,000 young people from around the country converged on San Francisco.

They were flower children and hippies, queers and artists, radicals and draft dodgers. A generation of freethinkers looked to the city for change, with resistance, liberation, and free expression unfurling in every corner.

Because of them, the city gave rise to movements in support of the rights of women, African-Americans, gays, farm workers, Native Americans, animals, and even the planet.

Change was everywhere.

ABC’s groundbreaking miniseries When We Rise introduces us to the lives, loves, and struggles of these activists, covering a 40-year span in the long battle for LGBT equality.

~Jimmy Kimmel’s Terrifying Alternative~

“This year we came up with a new product that I hope will make your kids behave bigly.”

Jimmy Kimmel launched a frightening spoof alternative to the Elf on the Shelf on Friday.

Introducing: Trump on a Stump ― the perfect comedic antidote to some of President-elect Donald Trump’s  terrifying policies.

Kimmel said he feared the relatively new tradition of parents moving around their home a toy elf that Santa Claus purportedly sent to spy on kids in the run-up to Christmas was “starting to lose its gravitas.”

“I noticed the kids are not so worried about it any more, they don’t fear the elf any more,” the comedian said. “So this year we came up with a new product that I hope will make your kids behave bigly.”

Trump on a Stump doesn’t report back to Santa on who is being naughty or nice, however. This toy reports directly to the Pentagon – ensuring every misbehaving child will be immediately dealt with.

‘DWTS’ Season 23: Laurie Hernández Dazzles, Earns Perfect Score in Week 4

In a special show last night, October 3, competitors on “Dancing With the Stars” performed routines that were all inspired by various Cirque du Soleil shows, and they were even joined on the ballroom floor by Cirque’s acrobats and other performers.

At the end of the night, Olympic gymnast Laurie Hernández topped and Val Chmerkovskiy the leaderboard with 30 points – earning not only the first 10s of the season but the season’s first perfect score.

~High Scorer~

The Olympic gold medal-winning gymnast channeled her inner Michael Jackson for a sassy jazz routine that electrified the ballroom audience and judges and earned her three 10’s for the first perfect score of the season.

During the judges’ critique Julianne Hough initially made amazed faces without speaking, then said:

“I literally have nothing to say other than the fact that Michael Jackson may be the king of pop but you are the queen of the ballroom!”

Randy Lewis

Half a century ago, the Country Music Assn. in Nashville handed out awards for the first time. So began a tradition that continues to grow five decades on.

To mark the occasion, the CMA has assembled its own all-star video, “Forever Country,” which premiered Tuesday night, September 20, on “Dancing With the Stars” and features 30 current and veteran country acts.

Among the participants: Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood, Vince Gill, Miranda Lambert, Faith Hill, Kacey Musgraves, Jason Aldean, Keith Urban ,Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton and Alan Jackson.

They’ve teamed  with the rest of the “Forever Country” participants in a mash-up of three classics: Nelson’s “On the Road Again,” Parton’s “I Will Always Love  You” and John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads.”
