Octane Party heats up Boystown, raises funds for Lakeview Pantry

Nov. 19, 2017 - , Chicago-based DJ Jesse Mercado made his debut at an Octane Party from SKIN Productions on Saturday night, Nov. 11, at Fantasy Nightclub in Boystown -- and he delivered a five-plus hour high-energy set, wrapping up in the wee hours of Sunday, Nov. 12.

About 450 attended the laser- and fog-filled party that, naturally, featured shirtless revelers aplenty.

The event was a fundraiser for Lakeview Pantry.

SKIN Productions continues the party on Saturday night, Nov. 25 at Fantasy Nightclub, with its popular Butterball Party, featuring Brazilian beauties Fabio Campos and Ale Maes (a Chicago resident) splitting the DJ duties.

'Grace And Frankie' season 4 arrives on Netflix January 19
Nov. 19, 2017 - , The fourth season of Netflix's original comedy Grace and Frankie premieres Friday, January 19.

In Grace And Frankie, adversaries Grace (played by Jane Fonda) and Frankie (Lily Tomlin) are unexpectedly brought together when their husbands announce that they are gay and getting hitched to each other. Martin Sheen (The West Wing) plays Robert, Fonda's husband, while Sam Waterston (Law and Order) plays Sol, Tomlin's husband.

In the show's second season, Robert and Sol got married.

Season 3 ended with Frankie thinking about moving out of state with her boyfriend, a move that threatens the women's fledgling business.

The upcoming season will be about the women coming to terms with age, creator and showrunner Marta Kauffman said during an ATX Television Festival panel in June.

"[Season 4 will be] really about the women coming to terms with age, coming to terms with how old they are, where their bodies are at this point, where their minds are at this point and what does that imply, what does that mean?" Kauffman is quoted as saying by Deadline Hollywood.

June Diane Raphael, who plays Grace's daughter Brianna, said that season 4 will also take a "deep dive" into her character's love life.

Grace and Frankie has received seven Emmy nominations, including lead actress for Fonda and Tomlin, and a Golden Globe nomination.

Just weeks after marrying, Milo Yiannopoulos urges Australians to reject marriage equality
Oct. 25, 2017 - , Just weeks after marrying his boyfriend in Hawaii, gay conservative Milo Yiannopoulos is calling on Australians to vote against marriage equality.

"My gut would be to vote against it," Yiannopoulos told the Daily Mail Australia. "I'm gay and a Catholic. The highest priority for me is making sure no church, no believer anywhere, is required to violate their religious conscience."

The Australian government is spending $120 million on a postal survey which asks whether it should extend marriage rights to gay and lesbian couples. Results of the survey, expected on November 15, are non-binding.

"I think those things can co-exist perfectly peacefully," Yiannopoulos continued. "I think the state probably should recognize a gay couple who want to commit to one another. But the paramount consideration is not those gay couples – it is religious freedom."

Yiannopoulos in February announced that he had quit Breitbart News, the alt-right website with close ties to President Donald Trump, amid criticism over comments he made that appeared to condone pedophilia. The comments also cost him a book deal with Simon & Schuster.

The 32-year-old Yiannopoulos also recently criticized Pope Francis for his liberalism and has said that while gay he believes gay sex is a sin.
