    Star of "Dream Girls" signs on to do Gay Days at Disneyland

    http://www.advocate.com/news_detail_ektid34829.asp

    Jennifer Hudson, star of the upcoming film version of the musical Dreamgirls, will perform at this year's unofficial Gay Days at Disneyland on October 7, organizers announced Friday. The three-day event in Anaheim, Calif., runs October 6–8; Hudson will appear at the Kingdom Dance Party at the House of Blues in the theme park's Downtown Disney area.

    "We are thrilled to have Jennifer on board, as she has ties to Disney," organizers told Advocate.com, referring to Hudson's stint on the Disney Cruise Line, where she's performed shows. Out DJ Kimberly S. returns to spin at the Kingdom party.

    Hudson, an American Idol finalist, reportedly beat out American Idol winner Fantasia to win the choice role of Effie, one of the three titular Dreamgirls in the film, which is being adapted and directed by Bill Condon (Gods and Monsters, Kinsey). Beyoncé plays Deena Jones, the lead—a character loosely based on Diana Ross—but Hudson will sing the show's standout number, "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going," sung by Jennifer Holliday in the original Broadway production. Holliday earned both a Tony and a Grammy for her performance.

    The ninth annual Gays Days at Disneyland begins with a welcome party called Wonderland on October 6 at Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen, also in Downtown Disney. That event will benefit the Trevor Project, a nonprofit that provides the nation's only 24-hour hotline for LGBT teens. Drag diva Momma will host Wonderland, with special appearances by Honey Labrador and Will Wikle (Big Brother, Logo's Round Trip Ticket).

    Gay Days attendees, who typically wear red shirts to be visible among other park guests, will visit the Disneyland theme park on Saturday, October 7, and the California Adventure theme park on Sunday, October 8. Both gatherings in the parks, which are privately organized and not endorsed by the Disney company, include scheduled rendezvous times for specific groups, such as gay youth (sponsored by the Trevor Project), gay families, women, singles, and gay male "bears." Organizers also sponsor a scavenger hunt and group photos each day. For more information or to buy tickets to the parties, go to gaydaysanaheim.com.

    I loved Jennifer Hudson. It's a shame she had to lose because of a power outage in Chicago. But, she's on to bigger and better things now!!! Good for her...and good for Gay Days. It's always good to see stars "come out" for these things. I think it's their way of accepting us...and that's alright with me!!! Now, if only we could get Lance Bass and the rest of N*Sync to perform. Then we'd really have a party!!!...and PLEASE LANCE, BRING REICHEN!!!

    I'm jealous!
    "He who knows only his own side of the case, knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them. But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side; if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion" --John Stuart Mill
