Friends - Pair up with a partner or your partner! It makes exercise time and maintaining a fit lifestyle easier and natural. Plus, it’s great time to catch up on what happened last night or plann the next adventure. Food - Remember mom said, “You are what you eat!”? Who knew how right she was? So don’t expect to have a six pack if all that’s in the fridge is a six pack. Cook with friends; learn about calories. Rule of thumb: Multiply the weight that you wish to maintain by 10, and that’s an estimate of your recommended daily calories. Fun - Your workout regimen or food plan should not be more complicated than a season of “Lost.” So don’t lose the fun factor. Plan healthier versions of your favorite meals, not rabbit food. Take a new class each week. Change your workout every month. Some gyms, like New York Sports Clubs, have multiple locations, so switch up your scenery. You’ll never find Mr. Right if you always use that last treadmill on the right. Fierce! - To look like a cover model for Get Out!, you’ve got to get in the game with gusto. Quality and quantity matter here, boys. Break a sweat! Take shorter breaks between sets. Studies show that listening to motivational talk or books on tape on your iPod can improve your workout’s results and focus. It’s hard to go home with the hardbodied boy when you soft-shoe exercised for six months! Fashion - Face it, fashion is half the motivation for fitness (the other half is looking good without those clothes). There’s a plethora of smart, sexy clothing styles and gym bags for running, lifting, yoga or general fitness. Nothing says fashion and fitness forward than your portable Versace Food Jar! Stay Fit in the City! Christopher Paige works in fitness in Downtown Manhattan. He lost 180 pounds and has maintained that loss for over 10 years. For fitness questions and more, contact him at fitinthecitychris@gmail.com.

uropean suits, cuties everywhere, Friday nights at G Lounge: There are thousands of reasons to want to be fit as a New Yorker. Some are blessed with genes of a god, and some are cursed by the hell of fat cells. I say, “F” IT!

CYNDI LAUPER

Will Host Upcoming Star-Studded Concert to Raise Funds and Awareness for LGBT Youth Homelessness

Cyndi Lauper’s True Colors Fund will host the 2nd annual Cyndi Lauper & Friends: Home for the Holidays benefit concert on Saturday, December 8, at New York City’s historic Beacon Theatre to help raise awareness about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth homelessness and funds for the organization’s Forty to None Project. Cyndi Lauper will be joined on stage this year by Sarah McLachlan, Adam Lambert, Adam Duritz and David Immerglück of the Counting Crows, Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie O’Donnell, Roberta Flack, St. Vincent, Alexis Krauss of Sleigh Bells, Hunter Valentine, Andy Cohen, Rita Coolidge, Emily West, Terri Nunn, Melanie Fiona, host Carson Kressley and a special sneak preview performance by the cast of the upcoming Broadway musical “Kinky Boots.” Additional guests will be announced soon.

“At last year’s sold-out concert we got a bunch of great folks together, had a big party with some great music and raised much-needed funds to help get the word out about these young people who are struggling,” says Lauper, co-founder of the True Colors Fund. “So, this year we’re going to do it even bigger!” In America, up to 1.6 million youth are homeless each year and up to 40% of them identify as LGBT. Yet, only up 5% of the general youth population does the same. The disproportionate rate these young people experience homelessness is alarming, and the primary reason they are homeless is because of family rejection. These kids are being thrown out of their homes by their families or running away out of fear of rejection or to escape abuse. Cyndi and her True Colors Fund stepped up to address this problem this past summer, and with funds raised from last year’s concert, launched the Forty to None Project, the first national organization to solely focus on making sure that no young person is homeless because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. For more about the Forty to None Project, visit www.fortytonone.org.

Ronnie Kroell’s Christmas Gift By Jorjet Harper

Out model-turned-actor Ronnie Kroell plays two roles in “Scrooge & Marley,” the new film based based on Dicken’s classic “A Christmas Carol,” releasing to theatres and on DVD/Blu-ray this holiday. In the spirit realm of the film, he’s the Ghost of Christmas Past, who attends Scrooge that fateful Christmas Eve, and in the everyday world, he’s a buff bartender on his boss Scrooge’s meager payroll. “Of course, you know, the Ghost of Christmas Past is actually the first to visit Scrooge and take him back in time to show him what a jerk he was,” Kroell says. “He gives Scrooge a new perspective on who he was, who he is now, and hopefully gives him an idea of who he can become—and that it’s not too late. “If I were to compare the Dickens version to the Scrooge & Marley version,” he continues, “the same theme is there. It’s just a modern, hip version told with a little gay twist.”

man Rights Campaign, the American Civil Liberties Union and the It Gets Better project. He’s well aware of the potential positive impact of a film like “Scrooge & Marley.” “If you think about the LGBT movement and equality in marriage,” he says, “I think it’s an important step forward that we have a film like this, telling (gay family) stories in a positive way that’s palatable for all people to watch and enjoy. I really think that people are going to walk away from this film having a different perception of the LGBT community. They may even embrace and welcome us in a different way.”

“Scrooge & Marley” is the first adaptation of “A Christmas Carol” to feature a gay Scrooge and a Tiny Tim with two gay fathers. However, Ronnie Kroell is quick to point out that this isn’t just a gay film. “The storyline has a little something in it for everyone. I think it’s going to be one of those films that a member of the community can identify with, but they can also bring home (and share with) their families. The film is not gratuitous in any way. It’s a beautiful story.” Kroell appeared on the first season of Bravo’s “Make Me a Supermodel,” where he famously engaged in an onscreen bromance with another contestant. He placed second in the competition, but scored top marks as the show’s fan favorite. Since then, Kroell has done modeling for a number of prominent fashion designers and has appeared on the covers of several magazines—including his nude spread for Playgirl magazine. In the last few years he has taken his first forays into acting and filmmaking. He has also done quite a lot of gay awareness work—with such groups as the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), the Hu-

Saving Julian

L

ovari is the executive producer of “Saving Julian,” a film for and about homeless youth, particularly LGBT, who make up 40% of all homeless youth cases in the United States. The film is written and directed by Sekiya Dorsett, and had its world premiere this month at the International Film Festival Manhattan. The website www.SavingJulian.com is a social media tool, which tackles various projects with organizations that provide services to homeless youth. The following appears on the website: “We are working with Sylvia’s Place on enhancing their environment and providing supplies. Sylvia’s Place is an emergency overnight shelter for LGBTQ youth (under 24). They are there in the greatest times of need for many youth. For 365 days out of the year, Sylvia’s Place provides shelter and resources from homeless youth. They provide hot meals (dinner and breakfast); clothing; showers; case management; physical and mental health medical services; and court advocacy. “We want to help them to continue to provide services and are launching our first project with them. We are looking to donate brand new cots, bedding, lockers and paint the floor. You can help in several ways. You can volunteer with us to paint the floor, or if you know of a company that can provide this resource, we are halfway toward our goal.” Lovari released the album “No Holding Back” earlier this year, which reached the iTunes Top 100 New Releases Pop Chart and includes the Top 40 R&B singles “Keep It Movin’” (nominated for a 2012 RightOut TV Video Music Award) and “Foolish Beat” (infamously featured on the Perez Hilton website). His new single “Still In Love” is a duet with Anny Jules (Broadway’s “The Lion King”) and produced by JStaffz (Wiz Khalifa, G Unit). Visit LovariWorld.com // GETOUTMAG.COM / NOVEMBER 22, 2012


OF By Jack Schroer

At this point in your career, would you compete on the show? I would certainly compete on the show! Being on RuPaul’s Drag Race would get my name out there so much faster. The only thing is I can’t sew. My biggest fear would be getting kicked off on the first show because my sewing was so bad. Do queens in the community support one another? It depends on the queen. I have a lot of queens who have my back and want me to succeed at my music career. Some queens, though, can’t be happy for no one – but those bad apples disappear pretty quickly. Faith Michaels’ name pays homage to two of the biggest pop stars in history: Faith Evans and George Michaels. “I saw a cassette tape with the name Faith written in gold,” explains the female impersonator-turned-music star. Faith Michaels’ latest dance track, “Go Home,” produced by Georgie Porgie, is on iTunes now. “I was mesmerized by the beautiful woman who sang such strong, powerful tunes. When deciding on a last name, I was torn between Lady Faith, because it sounded classy, and Michaels, because George Michaels sang about faith. For I’m guessing the first time in his life, George came out on top.” According to audiences, what makes Faith Michaels’ stage shows so memorable is she does a little of everything. Michaels’ bag of stage tricks includes comedy, impersonation and something not many queens can claim – her own original dance tracks. Experience the sass for yourself when Faith Michaels performs at Stonewall on December 9. You are one queen who has managed to gain fame without appearing on RuPaul’s Drag Race. Well, that fame did not come easy, and it is still a lot of work. All I can do is put out quality material and hope people fall in love with it.

You’re performing Stonewall to support our local queen, Lauren Ordair. It’s her birthday bash, and I can’t wait! Stonewall is a huge part of gay history. I’m so honored to perform their stage. What are you most excited about these days? I’m thrilled to see my new single, “Go Home,” charting. I love that! The hard work is paying off. It’s being called the season’s gay club anthem. “Go Home” is a fun stay-out-all-night song. It’s a lot of fun to dance to and even more fun to perform! Is life meant to be a non-stop party? Life is meant to be lived. We should all do things that make us happy. We only get one chance at it, so make it count. Visit FaithMichaels.com

Faith Michaels performs her hits including “Go Home” as part of Lauren Ordair’s birthday bash at Stonewall Inn (53 Christopher Street) Sunday, December 9 @ 10 p.m. No cover. 21+ / proper ID required.
