What’s Brewing: Lady Gaga at the AAC; GLAAD says gays can’t say ‘fag’; Dallas mayor’s race

Your weekday morning blend from Instant Tea:

1. We’ll have much more on Lady Gaga’s show at the American Airlines Center in Dallas last night — and the afterparties at local gay clubs — later on today after those who were in attendance drag themselves out of bed. But for now, above is some early video of Gaga performing “Telephone” after calling a little monster in the audience.

2. In response to criticism from GLAAD, Vanity Fair has apologized for an openly gay writer’s use of the word “fags” in an article about characters on Glee. Apparently, gay writers are no longer allowed to use the word “fag” in print, according to GLAAD. Needless to say, Instant Tea never received this memo.

3. Another reason why we need more openly LGBT people to run for public office: The Dallas mayor’s race looks like a real snoozer because it features three candidates who lack much flair.

Another gay day at the State Fair? Sorta kinda

As the State Fair winds down, the countdown is on to closing time on Sunday. But between now and then, there is lots to squeeze in. Fried Frito pies and corn dogs must still be had. And if you find the fried s’mores, tell me where they are. They seemed to have moved from their regular spot.

The unofficial official gay day was last weekend and we guess it went OK. But if you need some more fellowship and family, the Dallas Bears are heading out to the Fair on Saturday. The group put an open invitation out on Facebook to join them at noon at the main gate. But by the looks of the RSVPs and one guy’s comment, I imagine they are hoping for a few more to say yes:

Norman Come on there has to be more then just five of us going! Actually six I’m bringing a buddy with me.

In other bear news — which is really leather news but by the looks of it, bears fit in — the L.A. Eagle screened a preview of the upcoming movie Jackass 3D with star Johnny Knoxville in tow. The best part of it is they made it into a trailer for the flick. Yeah, Knoxville seems to know how the show plays up some major homo-eroticism when he talked to Vanity Fair.

“We always thought it was funny to force a heterosexual MTV generation to deal with all of our thongs and homoerotic humor. In many ways, all our gay humor has been a humanitarian attack against homophobia. We’ve been trying to rid the world of homophobia for years, and I think gay people really dig it too.”

Priceless.
