This weekend I  launched my new podcast, coincidently titled “The Novus Homo.” My intent is to host weekly conversations about the past, present and future of queer culture with artists, activists, entrepreneurs, politicians and community leaders whom I respect and admire.

My first guest is Dana Van Gorder, the executive director of Project Inform which celebrated its 30th anniversary Saturday.
It’s been a busy month ’round here in my little corner of star-strewn Hollywood—even before my rear tire blew en route to Project Inform’s 30th anniversary celebration this weeken…

Three years ago today the FDA approved ‪#‎Truvada for use as ‪#‎PrEP‬, a means of ‪#‎HIV‬ prevention. Since then #ProjectInform has been a vocal advocate in support of expanded access and education—and San Francisco has experienced a dramatic drop in rates of HIV infection as a result.
Please donate to my AIDS Walk San Francisco campaign and help me support the work of P.I. and dozens of other organizations providing vital services in the fight against ‪#‎AIDS‬. (Only three days left!)

“Obviously some of those missing men are also a part of [the gay] community,” laments Mister Wallace, a member of the Chicago-based artist collective Banjee Report. “If they were here it would mean more black gay men making art and holding positions of leadership, more magazine covers featuring black artists, more black writers writing articles, more opportunities for a black perspective to influence the gay community.”
