READ THIS: The Masculine Mystique/ Custom Suits to Make Transgender and Female Clients Feel Handsome @ nytimes
Breakthrough ideas often come from the least expected sources. For Daniel Friedman, the flash came from a woman named Rachel Tutera. Mr. Friedman makes custom men’s suits, mostly for corporate clients in his end of Park Slope, Brooklyn.
Ms. Tutera runs a blog called The Handsome Butch. When she wrote to him last year, seeking a sales job, she had a proposition: Why couldn’t Mr. Friedman, with his expertise in men’s suits, make them for women like her — not women’s suits, but the same gear he was making for guys, with the same masculine profile, but fitted to women’s bodies? It was a question he had never considered.
“Juul Haalmeyer: THE MOVIE will be a character-driven portrait documentary about Toronto’s Emmy award-winning costume designer, Juul Haalmeyer. Although Juul is known publicly for his minor recurring role on SCTV as the leader of the Juul Haalmeyer Dancers, within the industry he is recognized as a distinctive costume designer who has worked in film and television for over 40 years.”
My friend Erin McMichael is directing a documentary on the SUPER lovely & talented JUUL HAALMEYER. Movies cost a bundle to make and McMichael needs to start this campaign to get this thing made. One of the perks: “receive a custom styled Juul Haalmeyer Dancers outfit, styled by Juul himself! This perk also includes formal induction into the Juul Haalmeyer Dancers (by way of certificate signed by Juul) and a Facebook shout out from Juul himself.” Can you imagine!
PLEASE check out JUUL HAALMEYER: The Movie INDIE GO-GO!
Ummmm… SCTV & Juul are a MAJOR part of my young queer life. I can’t love the man more!

DAILY MAIL: Between 1957 and 1981 Casilli became one of the most prolific photographers for Playboy magazine, shooting no fewer than 57 Playmates, countless other pictorials and several covers. He even persuaded Barbara Streisand to pose in her underwear. The lensman was given key card #2 to Playboy’s legendary chain of clubs; #1 being reserved for the magazine’s boss, Hugh Hefner. During the 1980s Casilli began shooting the most high profile TV and music stars in America, capturing the excess, the glamour and decadence of the decade through its most flamboyant household names.
