Dave Holmes checks in each week with
NewNowNext to find out if the week was good for the gays.
Overall, this week was good for the
gays, and here's why, according to Holmes.
Gigolos, which Holmes described
as reality TV with a bunch of cheap sex, returns for its third
season. That's good for the gays.
Thomas is “going to get some” in
Downton Abbey. That's good for the gays.
Bob Mould's new album Silver Age
is “outstanding,” which is good for the gays.
Ellen DeGeneres got a star on the Walk
of Fame. Good for the gays.
The VMA's were good for the gays,
Holmes ultimately decided, but added that candy corn Oreos are not
good for anyone.
“Speakers all throughout the
Democratic National Convention talked about gays and lesbians but
like not in code,” Holmes said. “They actually said gays and
lesbians and talked about us like we're actual citizens with
something to offer. Now we're definitely going to have to continue
to hold these people's feet to the fire and maybe this whole thing is
just empty talk. But think about it: these people thought they could
score political points with empty talk about gays and lesbians.
That's progress. The Democratic National Convention was good for the
gays.” (The video is embedded on this page. Visit
