How much hetero is in your Twitter feed?

imageWhen it comes to the Project Q Atlanta Twitter feed, we've got some of the most, um, gay tweets around. Though surprisingly, we've still got a little hetero in us -- about 1 percent, to be exact.

That's according to a fun new app called How Hetero? It's a brilliant little piece of marketing from the folks organizing Stockholm Pride that allows you to check the hetero factor of any Twitter account.

Atlanta Pride, by the way, is also 1 percent hetero. Anderson Cooper's Twitter feed? Some 91 percent hetero, which made us laugh out loud. And we couldn't find a Twitter feed for Tyler Perry, who probably avoids the social networking site for fear that his hetero index would be non-existent.    READ MORE »

Hit musical opens Actor’s Express season

imageYou’d think the folks at Actor’s Express might take a little break and recharge their batteries.

But the dynamic theater company -- fresh from the highly-successful run of the highly-gay “Zanna, Don’t!” -- is busily preparing for its 22nd season on the stage of its West Midtown complex.

The season launches late next month with a seven-week run of the hit Broadway musical “Grey Gardens.” Throw in a love triangle with a lesbian twist, the homoerotic setting of an all-male prep school, a priest on furlough and a buxom actress in a slasher movie attempting to keep her pill-popping mom in check and you’ve got yourself a season full of entertainment.

Tyler Perry has way more money than you

imageTyler Perry is one rich bitch. That the Atlanta director has money is of little surprise -- he sits atop a production studio in south Atlanta that spits out movies and TV shows like a Chinese sweatshop churns out shoes for Nike.

But that he has this much money -- Perry made $75 million last year -- means the glass closet in which he lives is, well, a really, really nice one. It's in Buckhead, of course.
