I already did my coming out a thousand years ago, in the Stone Age. Those very quaint days when a fragile young girl would open up to friends and family and co-workers then gradually to everyone that knew her, everyone she actually met. But now apparently I’m told that every celebrity is to honor the details of their private life with a press conference, a fragrance and a primetime reality show.

Ocean’s public statement about having loved a man definitely contributes to the cause of greater visibility for LGBTQ artists and people; but in his music, he’s not so much pioneering as finding his place in a rich, if far from simple, history.

I still consider myself a reserved person and I hope this doesn’t mean an end to a small amount of personal space. But I do think visibility is important, more important than preserving my reporter’s shield of privacy.

Finally! David Kohan and Max Mutchnick, the team behind Will & Grace, have a new TV show that has been in the works for a while. It’s called “Partners” and is based on their relationship — a gay man and a straight man who are close friends and business partners.
Back in 2008, I attended a taping of the pilot when Josh Cooke, Alan Tudyk, Sarah Lafleur and Ty Burrell had the lead roles. (A year prior, Jay Mohr, Brian Austin Green, Jessica Capshaw, and Vanessa Lengies were attached.) It now features Sophia Bush, Brandon Routh, David Krumholtz and Michael Urie. I don’t care who’s in it, I’m just glad it is officially going on the air this fall. Thanks, CBS!
