Whatever did happen to Bobbie Gentry, that’s the question that Rosanne Cash, daughter of legendary Johnny Cash, asks?
More than 30 years ago Bobbie Gentry disappeared from the public’s gaze and despite various attempts to track her down her whereabouts remain unknown as she remains steadfastly in a state of anonymity. VIA PODOMATIC

Pay It No Mind – The Life and Times of Marsha P. Johnson -
Thanks to the wisdom and support of Richard Morrison, Larry Mitchell, and Jimmy Camicia who made this documentary possible.
Special thanks to Antony and the Johnsons. Your music and generosity shine, levitate, and transcend. Buy their music; it will love you. Love all the contributors in this film.
– Marsha, what a trip. She was something else. I vividly remember seeing her back in the 70′s & 80′s on Christopher Street. Kids would point at her in awe with bulging bug-eyes saying, “See that crazy drag queen over there?” I would respond, “Well honey, she started the Stonewall riots.” The listener’s mouth without fail would drop agape, because she was truly a sight to see. Then, after that, all the up and coming queens whenever we saw her would pause & genuflect as she made her way along the cobblestone streets of Greenwich Village. She is an undisputed icon. She’s the Statue of Liberty, the Eiffel Tower, and the Sphinx all rolled up into one divine ball.
This feature-length documentary focuses on revolutionary trans-activist, Marsha “Pay it No Mind” Johnson, a Stonewall instigator, Andy Warhol model, drag queen, sex worker, starving actress, and Saint. “Pay It” captures the legendary gay/human rights activist as she recounts her life at the forefront of The Stonewall Riots in the 1960s, the creation of S.T.A.R. (Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries) with Sylvia Rivera in the ’70s, and a New York City activist throughout the ’80s and early ’90s. Through her own words, as well as in-depth interviews with gay activist Randy Wicker, former Cockettes performer Agosto Machado, Author Michael Musto, Hot Peaches founder/performer, Jimmy Camicia, and Stonewall Activists Bob Kohler, Danny Garvin, Tommy Lanigan-Schmidt, and Martin Boyce, Marsha’s story lives on.
This documentary screened in 2012 at the IFC theater in New York; the British Film Institute in London, England; Roxie Theater in San Fran; Clinton St. Theater in Portland, Ore.; and La Mutinerie Theater in Paris, France. You should see it.
The NYPD cold case department recently reopened Marsha’s case.

Well, Mr. Pattinson poses like a dream. He has a youthful Tony Danza smile, hairy armpits exposed for all to worship, a lovely tight pink pucker and a tasty average-size dick. That cool ‘James Dean” sneer of his (that young teen men never seem to tire of doing), he wears it well. He reminds me of Bomba, The Jungle Boy but with that innocent bad ass-ness of one of the members of the Bowery Boys/ East- End Kids. He’s old school gangster movie cute.
But I dare say, Miss. Ginger Rogers would not stand for his dirty, dirty mouth.
“I’m going to a galaxy far, far away,” Lupita told me with a laugh as the announcement was made in early June. As a child watching Star Wars for the first time, Lupita was intrigued by R2-D2 and C-3PO. “They just resonated with me,” she says. “Being able to convey emotions with just a few digital sounds—it speaks of good storytelling.” That storytelling is still holding her in thrall. “It’s a wonderful opportunity to be working in these fantastical realms,” she says. “They’re worlds away from 12 Years a Slave, that’s for sure—but that kind of diversity is what dreams are made of.”
FABULOUS NOBODIES- SISSYDUDE talks to JOHN SIMONE about his AWESOME NYC Party Photos! (via Daily Xtra)
Sissydude: Photographer John Simone has two photo retrospectives happening during Toronto’s World Pride. The shows feature New York club culture icons from 1987- 1990. They include Rupaul, Kenny Kenny, Leigh Bowery, John Sex, Quentin Crisp, James St. James, Divine, The It Twins and of course “Party Monster” Michael Alig. Even Cher, Michael Jackson, Madonna and Sandra Bernhard pop up!
Simone left Toronto for New York in 1986 and immediately started working for Club-18 (The Roxy), Details Magazine (including Details’ influential nightlife column by Stephen Saban), Vanity Fair and The Village Voice. Of course the magic really started happening for him when friend Michael Alig appointed Simone chief photographer for his Project X Magazine.
I recently went to visit the very excitable and engaging Simone (above, pictured on the right, with Michael Musto) in his studio apartment in Toronto to get a glimpse of his gorgeous photos and talk, talk, talk about his subjects and his very interesting life during that time. Of course the magnificent creatures in the photos are what really gets him going…
