Happy Endings: Get A Piece Of Santino

Santino Rice is having a yard sale. THIS WEEKEND. We can’t imagine what he is selling! Please take pictures and send them to us. And don’t buy anything that smells funny. [SantinoRice]

• Speaking of Santino, Project Runway is casting again. [Bravotv]

• …and so is the upcoming movie version of Hairspray. John Travolta and Queen Latifah are already cast. Could you be next? April 1, Baltimore; April 8, Las Vegas. [HairsprayMovie]

• Gay author Keith Boykin on BET-J’s all-black The View. Except without Star Jones, because she is a total bitch already has a job. And how many BET’s are there? [WashBlade]

Oak Park, IL issues a proclimation welcoming the Gay Games events held there. Oak Park is one of the original “gay suburbs” of America, sitting right outside Chicago. We’ve been to Oak Park, and seriously–they have the most well-manicured lawns you have ever seen. Apparently, when you live in the suburbs but don’t have any kids to take to soccer practice, you have lots of free time to do things like trim your yard by hand with scissors. Oak Park is also the largest concentration of Frank Lloyd Wright architecture; go to the Games, take a FLW architecture tour, and think suburban Midwestern thoughts. Sounds like fun, doesn’t it?

• And on a happy note, a major adoption agency in NYC backs gay adoptive parents. At least the smart people are on our side. Not that intelligence matters in America these days. [Philly Inquirer]
