5) Out actor Michael Willet has released the music video for his newest single "Started Over". Although mostly known for his work on the small screen in MTV's Faking It and on the 2013 film G.B.F., Willett has also been active on the music field, mainly covering famous hits on his Youtube channel.

6) Jodi Savitz is a producer/director from Brooklyn that is currently raising funds for Girl on Girl, an LGBT-themed documentary that tackles "feminine lesbian invisibility— the phenomena in which, due to their feminine or “passing” appearance, many LGBTQ women are assumed to be straight by the outside world and are thus rendered invisible to each other." Money will be used for shooting, post-production and marketing costs. To donate and get additional information, go to the Indiegogo page.
