We're burning the midnight oil again, in our ongoing goal to keep it funky fresh and as always on point. Each and every day I continue to sift through the latest news cycle in search of breaking news, updates, commentary and items that may make you go, "hmmmmmm." Even though I serve as Executive Editor, I've been emphatic that this forum was designed as a "dialouge zone" that's not all about being politcally correct. If you've got something on your mind, stuck in your craw, need to add your two cents, then we are here as a public service, willing and ready for your output. With that said, let's turn the page and see what's really going on....

Salon Northwest: The Northwest Arkansas GLBTCC will offer a movie night this weekend featuring two GLBTQ favs, most notably Kinky Boots which I found heart warming and just plain ole fun. Starting at 7 PM - Kinky Boots, 2005, PG-13, BritishAfter inheriting a shoe factory, Charlie Price (Joel Edgerton) aims to take the fashion world by storm with help from a cabaret dancer in this whimsical comedy. Charlie risks it all when he hires sassy Lola (Chiwetel Ejiofor) to help design a racy line of men's boots. But on the eve of the Milan Shoe Fair, just as he's about to introduce the world to his signature shoes, everything falls apart. Sarah Jane Potts and Jemima Rooper co-star.
9 PM - Come Undone, 2000, NR, FrenchWhile on a family vacation at the French seaside, brooding 18-year-old Mathieu meets Cédric, an attractive carefree boy his own age, and is swept away by the first stirrings of homosexual passion. Within a narrative that shifts daringly between past and present, we witness their awkward, halting admissions of attraction and eventual submission to desire. The Salon Theater is located at 130 E. Poplar. St., Ste. B, inside of Tymythy’s Salon (one block off of College Ave.)For more information, contact Tymythy at 479-527-0414. No admission price was annonced but I'm sure a cute donation wouldn't be turned away.
Polls-R-Us: In the last few weeks we've ran several polls relating to GLBTQ issues with marginal response volume. What the hell does a person have to do to get some feedback around here? The topics we've covered have ranged from community overviews to the impending Adoption measure, each topic was offered as a means to facilitate discussion and dissiminate information. However, it seems that there's no rush to be visable or viable until the house is on fire. What's up with the silence people??
