QUEER CINEMA—Jed Rosenthal Bell and QueerCity.com
It's with great pride that I announce that—partly due to his conversation with me here on The Evening Class—filmmaker Jed Rosenthal Bell has been offered a column on the newly-launched QueerCity.com. His first write-up is an appreciation of Omar Little, the "criminal king" of HBO's The Wire. "Omar represents a new concept for TV," Jed writes, "the hard homo hero. Even better, his queerness is as relevant, as built-in to his character, and as causally, structurally related to all the happenings in the world of The Wire as every other thing in this beautifully complicated drama."
