Thank you to everyone who came out to the Long Beach Zine Fest today! If you don’t know what a zine is or haven’t been to a zine fest… what are you waiting for?!?! I sold out of Dorothy Dandridge today! It makes me happy to know that more people are going to learn about this legend! Also, sold a bunch of copies of Lupe Velez! Tell the stories that haven’t been told or tell the same story differently.

If you haven’t checked out this movie yet, it’s free on youtube!

Calling all Sal Mineo fans! What does Sal mean to you? Dead in Hollywood will be accepting submissions for the upcoming zine "Sal Mineo: The First Gay Teenager." The issue will focus on Sal's performance as one of the first gay teenagers in a major motion picture (Rebel Without a Cause) as well as Sal's groundbreaking 1972 interview where he comes out as bisexual. DM me for more details and feel free to forward this to any fellow Sal fans. Feel free to e-mail Dead in Hollywood at email@example.com for more info!
Rest in power Tab Hunter. 🌈 By chance, I posted a variation of this edit on Saturday. Hunter passed away yesterday, June 8, at the age of 86. His partner calls the death “unexpected and sudden.” This photo is of Hunter sharing a laugh with Sal Mineo and Natalie Wood at the Academy Awards.
