CLIK Magazine to Honor 25 Black LGBT Persons in Atlanta on November 25
MIAMI, FL — CLIK Magazine will celebrate and recognize 25 individuals, through their everyday lives, talents, causes, and campaigns, have paved the way for the enhancement of the Black same-gender loving community.
“Gays and lesbians prove to the rest of the world that they are significant contributors to all of society and their accomplishments deserve recognition,” said CLIK publisher Dwight Powell.“This has been a long time in the making and we are looking forward to celebrating each other and recognizing those whose achievements would have been otherwise overlooked.” The event will take place in Atlanta, Georgia at the Fabulous Fox Theatre on Saturday, November 25, 2006. “I have a lot of respect for this community. At Clik, we believe that we should always try to render our community in the best light possible. This is why we didn’t second-guess our decision to have the event at the Fabulous Fox Theatre.
We like to dress-up and why not, especially when we have good reasons to do just that,” shares Mr. Powell on his decision to host the event at one of Atlanta’s most prestigious and recognized venues. More Information: www.clikmagazine.com.
THIS FIGHT IS NOT YET FINISHED At least I hope its not. I'm referring to the issues raised by the just released documentary This Film is Not Yet Rated. (Check out our review and interview with director Kirby Dick here.) TFINYR pulls back the curtain on the unbelievably flawed and biased Motion Picture of American Association's rating system. The MPAA is the film industry funded-and-apparently-controlled organization that reviews and then rates every single movie released in America, suppposedly for the benefit of parents with children.

The Wire's Michael K. Williams on Playing Gay by Michael Ricci, September 7, 2006 In June of 2004, USA Today's Robert Bianco proclaimed Michael K. Williams one of the top 10 reasons to still love television. The kudos were no doubt related to his role as stick-up artist Omar Little on HBO's critically acclaimed drama The Wire, which kicks off its fourth season on Sept. 10. In the gritty cop series, created by David Simon (Homicide: Life on the Street), Omar is a modern-day Robin Hood from Baltimore's projects who holds up big-time dealers and gives their stash to addicts — for free. Every Sunday he takes his grandmother to church and has never uttered a swear word. Omar lives within a world that views homosexuality as a weakness, but he isn't ashamed of it. “He makes no excuses for it,” Williams told AfterElton.com. “It is what it is, and he is fine with his bottom line. It is not about him being gay. He has accepted his lifestyle, and the causes and effects it has had on his life.”
