In the wake of Jodie Foster, Ed Koch and others, we're discussing the roles and responsibilities of LGBT celebrities in this latest installment of "Q & Gay," the Center's live talk show that features straight talk from people of all ages in the LGBT community. Sparing no one, host Allison Davis dishes the dirt on out and closeted celebrities alike with help from queer journalists and celebs Michael Musto, Kim Stolz and Clay Cane.

What is Q & Gay?
"Q & Gay" is the Center's live talk show that features real conversations from LGBT people of all ages, creating intergenerational dialogue - long lacking in the LGBT community. Each "Q & Gay" installment focuses on a different topic with discussions led by a host and several special guest panelists from the LGBT community. In order to elicit personal dialogue and responses in front of a live audience, panelists are asked 20 rapid-fire questions to provoke a fun, honest and open conversation. Last summer's "Q & Gay: Madonna vs. Gaga" garnered substantial media attention and featured four generations of fans - from Gawker editor Rich Juzwiak to drag queens Lady Havokk and Detoxx Busti-ae - duking it out to decide which diva rules the gays.
