DNR on!

Click the photo to see Derek and Romaine interviewed by Access Hollywood on the red carpet at the GLAAD Awards.

So even though gay media didn't think they were worth covering, the "straight" media was there! Thanks,! Don't forget to download the special "The Laramie Project Ten Years Later: The Lasting Legacy Of Matthew Shepard" now at

  1. Well, atleast it was a credible media company. Fuck the other gay media.....they are part of the problem anyway. YOU GUYS ROCK, regardless of the venue or program!!!


  2. Why was Derek included when he didn't even help with the production of the Special? Just because his name is in the Title of the show? I think it should have been Romaine and Katie! Katie did most of the work, or at least that's what Romaine said. Derek even said he didn't do any work on it. Oh well. Behind the scenes people left out again.

  3. Dear bitchy anonymous listener,

    As you can see from the photo, Katie is right there on the red carpet being photographed, along with us. We don't have control over what an outside media company publishes or doesn't publish about us or the special (see my own bitchy blog entry about it).

    What really matters is what Romaine said on stage. Here is the clip and you will see that the behind-the-scenes people are not left out at all, and I am not thanked for the work I did not do as part of the special.

    Yes I was there, because the special took place during our show. And if the situation was reversed, I would expect Romaine to be there right by my side as well. We are a team in this show and while each of us takes on different aspects at different times no one member is more or less important to the team as a whole than the other. This is how it has always been and I think our successful pairing for more than six years now has bourne out this philosophy, despite your crabbing to the contrary.

    But more importantly, the point of the special and our attempt at getting the word out is not to highlight ourselves but the very real and continuing issue of hate crimes in America. If you want to write a snotty message to someone, how about sending one to your local member of Congress and Senators asking where the Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes legislation is.

  4. WTF?!? Anonymous get a life. Derek is right. Bitch to the people in Congress and the Senators that are too lazy to get off their ass and do the right thing.

    I suppose next you will post a complaint about the way people were dressed? Grow up! Did you ask Derek out on a date and he turned you down? is that why you took such a personal attack at Derek?

    I swear they just give internet to anyone.
