Absolutely Fabulous The Movie is …….. well absolutely fabulous, which is somewhat of a relief after the totally disastrous transfer from the small screen to the big one for the equally silly and very entertaining fashion-based comedy ‘Sex In The City’. Of course now that Edina and Patsy are trying to convince us that 60 is the new 40 there are wrinkles everywhere, including in the script, but what Jennifer Saunders has still managed to capture so hilariously is that the whole over-hyped circus-like environment of the designer fashion industry is really too silly to be taken as serious as it is.
queerguru caught up with Chris Salgardo President of Kiehls Since 1851 when he arrived in P. Town to enjoy one of his (and our) favorite summer highlights …. Bear Week. We got to chat about much more than that however as we discussed his new book MANMADE, plus the Kiehls/AmFAR LifeRide that will be passing through town next month, and his whole approach to help changing the way we look whilst at the same time helping the communities that we live in.
The Senator was one of four openly gay politicians …. all women … who rocked the very foundations of the California Legislature way back when as they successfully battled away to get our community some basic equal rights that would eventually pave the way for us to get these on a Federal Level too.
In this interview for P.T.V. filmed at the Sage Inn & Lounge in P Town by Rik Ahlberg and Heather Reed (who also edited it too) we get to talk about how this compelling story about these extraordinary pioneers came to be documented. We also got the Senator to not just reminisce about the past, but share with us her thoughts on what we still need to do as a Community too.
Political Animals doesn’t just recount this essential part of our recent history, but is also serves to act as a tribute to these four fearless women who we will always be so indebted too.
The one thing everyone always takes away from P. Town every single summer is a T Shirt that announces to the world that you were lucky enough to vacation here. If you are even luckier you may get a new mate (or two) as well.
queerguru got both when we stumbled on a brand new store called MATE run by designer Paul Nesbit that we, and several others, instantly fell in love with. Take a look and you’ll see why.
