geO Louis Stands Up BY GET OUT! MAGAZINE

S

inger/songwriter geO Louis’ latest release “STAND UP” is a mid-tempo ballad, and unlike his recent up-tempo singles it is more about spreading a positive message and less about trying to get people to dance. He tells us in his own words how the song came about: “I wrote this song about three years ago. Writing it was like therapy, helping me accept myself and my sexuality. I went through so many challenging times in the music industry constantly battling people who made me feel uncomfortable in my own skin. “I believe it’s everyone’s duty to ‘Stand Up’ and support those around them, whether they are black, white, gay, straight or transgender. We need to create an environment in which people feel they can be themselves and still achieve their goals. When you limit a person’s rights, it affects how they are viewed and accepted by society in all aspects of their life. “I always feared that if I came out I would not be able to continue pursuing my dreams. Although I still feel there are limitations, I think we are moving in the right direction. Change is happening. Which is why I felt it was an appropriate time to release this song. ‘Stand Up’ is my message to everybody out there. I’ll stand up for you like you stand up for me, and if we all stick together we can do anything.”

“Stand Up”

exico City was the first district in Latin America to legalize same-sex marriage, and now that the Mexican state of Quintana Roo is legalizing it too, it is throwing a fiesta to celebrate! The Caribbean Heat party will take place this Labor Day in Riviera Maya, a spot renowned throughout the world for its turquoise water, beautiful, white sandy beaches, rugged cliffs and ancient Mayan

ruins. “Caribbean Heat draws inspiration from the spectacular festivals of Europe,” says event founder Oliver Stevanovic. “In addition to partying the days and nights away, gay men can relax, soak in the sun and tour ancient archeological sites, including the nearby Chichen Itza, one of the Seven Wonders of the World.” The celebration will feature more than 13 dance parties including the Ying and Yang Pool Parties, a Speedo event and a Manhunt// GETOUTMAG.COM / JULY 27, 2012

Are You Working on Something New? BY CHRISTOPHER GOHLKE

A

re You Working on Something New?, presented by composer and musical director Mark T Evans and composer/ actor/musician William TN Hall, has its third edition Sunday, August 5 and Monday, August 6 at 7 p.m. at Don’t Tell Mama NYC. The performance, benefiting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, showcases new musical theatre songwriters from such prestigious programs as the BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theatre Workshop and the NYU Musical Theatre Graduate Writing Program. The first Are You Working...? raised $1,000 for BC/EFA in February

last year, and was such a success that Evans and Hall decided to turn it into a series. The second, in December last year, brought in an additional $1,000. “Are You Working...? is great because it’s a win/win situation,” Hall says. “The writers get showcased, the actors get to work on new material and vice versa, and everything is for a wonderful charity.” The third Are You Working...? will feature a cast of six presenting material from 23 up-and-coming musical theatre writers. U.K.born New York resident Hall is the Monday pianist at Don’t Tell Mama NYC and the Saturday pianist at Uncle Charlie’s, and // GETOUTMAG.COM / JULY 27, 2012

has played for the Joan Rivers Live! show and events around New York. “We hope to do many editions and will endeavor to keep offering a great cross-section of the musical theatre writers’ new work presented by some of the greatest musical theatre talent around,” he says of the upcoming event.

Where: Don’t Tell Mama NYC 343 West 46th Street New York, NY 10036 When: Sunday, August 5 and Monday, August 6 at 7 p.m. Cost: $15 cover, cash only. Two-drink minimum.
