I have a million things cluttering up my inbox for post ideas, so I'm gonna let you have 'em without much commentary. If I haven't (seriously) blogged them by now, I'm not going to!

  • Rachael Jones has opened a unique restaurant in Bloomington. Rachael is transgender and the Indiana Daily Student does an excellent article that features not just the menu, but the many challenges she's faced.
  • While the New York City AIDS Walk gets quite a bit of local support, Indianapolis doesn't do anything special to show the event any love. What would it take to coordinate something? Anything?!
  • You won't want to miss Spencer Pride in Spencer, Indiana. They bill it as "the smallest town in the country to have a Pride event." The event will be held June 21st at Cooper's Commons Park at 11am.
  • Actor/director Sydney Pollack died recently. Pollack was born in Lafayette, Indiana. One reader wrote me, "Remember that hawt, hawt scene from The Talented Mr. Ripley? ... Matt Damon obsessing over buck-naked Jude Law climbing in and out of the bathtub has to make it onto the fav lists for thousands if not millions of gay male moviegoers."
