  • A Coming Out Tale: Getting Over My Embarrassment and Calling Myself Religious

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    February 12, 2014 | 12:30 pm

    I have always been cagey when detailing information about myself that might classify me as religious.  Not that I was ever embarrassed or cryptic about telling people I was Jewish.  Telling people I was Jewish when people asked what my Christmas plans were, or just offering up the...

  • RHONJ Reunion Part 2 - Lies. Lies. Lies.

    By Ilana Angel

    October 7, 2012 | 11:29 pm

    I waited all week for part 2 of this 3 week crap fest and it was worth the wait.  Not because it was particularly compelling television, or because they answered our burning questions, but because it is blogging gold.  These chicks are a mess and watching them implode is...

  • Coming Out As Jewish

    By Susan Esther Barnes

    August 15, 2012 | 8:00 am

    A couple of weeks ago I was going through a presentation for a couple dozen people, and I mentioned I’m Jewish. I was surprised when the reaction included more than a few gasps. I wondered what they were thinking. This was in a city on the main freeway between San Francisco and...

  • Conversations from Twitter – Part 8

    By Ilana Angel

    July 6, 2012 | 9:17 am

    When I started this series of interviews a lot of people wrote to tell me I should talk to @WillLoveInc because he was fabulous.  I did not follow Will and he did not follow me, so I was curious about who this person was.  Before I got a chance to check him out, he tweeted that I was...

  • Bristol Palin, Rielle Hunter & Anderson Cooper

    By Ilana Angel

    July 5, 2012 | 9:03 pm

    I am amazed that these three people have all made the news recently. Bristol Palin’s reality show started airing, Rielle Hunter’s memoir of her life as a home wrecking whore was published, and Anderson Cooper made headlines for coming out.  Really?  Bristol is not worthy of a...

  • Real Housewives of New Jersey – 50 Shades of Green

    By Ilana Angel

    June 19, 2012 | 9:37 am

    I’m curious about how long Bravo is going to make us watch this garbage.  It is simply not entertaining.  It has become a chore to sit through it and virtually impossible to write about because it’s the same thing each week.  By the same thing of course I mean everyone hates on...

  • Real Housewives of New Jersey Try to Ruin a Wedding

    By Ilana Angel

    June 11, 2012 | 8:40 am

    This show is bad.  So bad frankly, that it is near impossible to watch.  I will stick with it until the end of the season because I’m already too far in, but unless they replace the entire cast, I will not be back for another season. By entire cast of course I mean Teresa too.  I...

  • Real Housewives of New Jersey – Start Firing!

    By Ilana Angel

    June 4, 2012 | 11:20 am

    With each episode of this season it becomes more obvious that the majority of this cast is no longer good television.  Caroline is bitter and nasty, Jac is boring and bitchy, Kathy is fake and calculated, Melissa is jealous and vengeful, and Teresa is in need of her own show without...

  • Self-Love for Y-Love

    By Danielle Berrin

    May 23, 2012 | 12:25 pm

    Self-actualization can be such a drag.

    Just ask the African-American “ex-Chasidic” rapper Yitz Jordan, known to fans as Y-Love, whose religious journey clashed with his human journey when routine bouts of racism and homophobia dented his dignity.

    One time, while praying at the...

  • Making it easier for LGBT Jewish kids to be open, honest

    By Ryan E. Smith

    November 1, 2011 | 8:44 pm

    Someday, maybe every gay Jewish youth will have as easy a time coming out as Elias Rubin did.

    “I came out a few days after I figured it out myself,” said the 11th-grader from Valley Village. “Everybody was totally supportive and accepting.”

    That was when he was in eighth...

  • National Coming Out Day: Be Brave, Be Strong, Be Yourself, Be Happy

    By Ilana Angel

    October 11, 2011 | 10:30 am

    Today is National Coming Out Day. The gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender communities have my support on this very important day.  I hope those of you who are contemplating coming out, have the love and support you need to embrace who you are, be proud, and be free.

    The day will...

  • ‘Wagging’: My Story as Gay Jewish Male

    By Eric Gordon

    May 11, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    A couple of years ago, I heard about an oral history project for older gay men and women that resulted in a staged play. I didn't see it, but when Bob Baker, the adapter-director, sent out the call for a new cast, I signed up.

    We listened to each other's stories, wrote up the most...
