1. Madonna. It may be unbelievable, but Madge is 49 today. Cut off a leg and count the rings. To think that she was a zaftig 24-year old when her first single, Everybody, was released... She's come a long way since then--and has had a big gay following ever since. As they say in the old country: cheers, love!
Here's a video of her first-ever live performance in 1982 at Danceteria in NYC.
2. David Mixner, writer, longtime activist and the keynote speaker at our Fall Dinner this year, is 61 today.
Happy Birthday, David! Thanks for everything you've done and continue to do for LGBT people everywhere.
