  • Birthday shoutouts go to Lily Allen, who is 28, and Pandora Boxx is 41.
  • A biopic about Mr. Rogers may be on the way.
  • Speaking of biopics, Justin Timberlake has officially signed up to play Casablanca Records co-founder Neil Bogart in Spinning Gold.

  • And here’s The Weekly ShoutOUT™. Each week we’re going to focus on one out athlete/performer and feature a daily pic and career timeline. We’ll be showcasing the big names, but also the lesser-known gay celebs who deserve more recognition. This week we give a ShoutOUT to … Sean Maher.

  • The 100 Greatest Lost Hits Of The 80′s countdown may be over, but every Thursday we’re going to go back and pay tribute to an 80′s tune that should have been a bigger hit. This week let’s pay tribute to Taimak’s The Last Dragon costar Vanity.
