Del Shores made gay movie cult history in 2000, with his Texas toast sized slice of life film “Sordid Lives.” And as he continues this tale in “A Very Sordid Wedding,” we get to revisit these characters once again. And 17 years later they are just as kooky as ever.

Kathy Griffin talks to SDGLN about her LGBT award, the community and Gwyneth Paltrow

Kathy Griffin is an LGBT ally who will be honored by the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus on March 12.
