Rank #3: Shane Bitney Crone (Documentary, "Bridegroom")
On May 7, 2012, the anniversary of Tom’s death, after a year of documenting his own grief, Shane decided to make a video tribute to his partner entitled “It Could Happen To You.” This film, posted on YouTube, received over 3.4 million views and has been translated into over 20 different languages. The impact of Shane’s YouTube video and the raw nerve it touched, tells us this is an important story that needs to be told.
With the incredible support from influential people like Brad and George Takei and Neil Patrick Harris, Bridegroom was successfully funded on July 19, 2012 by over 6,500 people on Kickstarter.com becoming the most funded documentary in the history of crowd funding, and released in the fall of 2013.

Rank #4: Special Guest, Kelly Mantle
Audiences will immediately recognize Kelly from the last season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” But this isn’t her first time on TV. Kelly has been a working actor (in and out of drag) in Hollywood for the past ten years with a list of credits longer than her legs.
As a stand-up comedian and stage actor, Kelly has starred in over 50 plays in the theatre. Kelly wrote & starred in her critically-acclaimed one-person show “The Confusion Of My Illusion” which was produced at the Lily Tomlin/Jane Wagner Theatre at the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center.
Kelly has a few movie credits, but wants MORE! Most recently, Kelly finished filming Confessions of a Womanizer (with Gary Busey) and American Dream (with Nick Stahl, directed by Steven Spielberg‘s Oscar-winning cinematographer, Janusz Kaminski). Both movies will be released in movie theaters this year.
Kelly is also a singer, songwriter, and musician. To date, Kelly has recorded three albums which have been hailed by critics everywhere: “Ever Changing,” “Rock N Glow” and “Satellite Baby.” Kelly’s cover & video of “My Neck, My Back” has won over thousands of viewers on YouTube, including the song’s originator, Khia.
Kelly grew up in Oklahoma like her uncle, the late great Mickey Mantle. (Yep…Kelly’s a switch-hitter too.) Kelly received a B.F.A. in Theatre from the University of Oklahoma. Kelly is also a graduate of Second City in Chicago.

Rank #5: Rupaul's Drag Race, Courtney Act
Once upon a time, Sydney boy Shane Jenek tried out for Australian Idol. Not quite making the cut he wasn’t discouraged, Shane bent the rules and his gender, returning the next day as Courtney Act, and made it through to the finals. Courtney’s explosive, energetic performing style, coupled with her joyous personality, sent audiences wild and Australia had a new, slightly less conventional, sweetheart. Hot on the high heels of the TV series came the phenomenally successful national arena tour and a record deal with Sony/BMG.
Over the coming years Courtney forged herself a name in the Australian entertainment industry, garnering chart hits, television appearances, and national advertising campaigns, and she toured Australia, Europe, Asia and America. She was even voted one FHM’s World’s Top 100 Sexiest Women (despite not actually being a woman), sang at Lady Gaga’s private birthday party, and opened for Gaga on her Australian club tour. She’s played the role of Angel in RENT the musical and she’s been the face of Sheer Cover makeup across the three major TV networks selling makeup to the women of Australia on morning television. She’s no Joan of Arc, but it is pretty revolutionary having a female illusionist, selling the illusion of beauty to females.
In 2011 Courtney moved to the USA, on a visa titled Alien Of Extraordinary Ability, to show America and the world what she’s got! After completing a national club tour of 20 dates around North America she set up her new life in West Hollywood. Courtney has been announced as a contestant on the 6th season of Rupaul’s Drag Race which will be premiering on Viacom’s Logo Network in February 2014.

Rank #8: Special Guest: Wendy Ho
Ho is an artist. Ho is a state of mind. Ho redefines women in music and comedy with true liberation. She is funny and sexy, never sacrificing one for the other. A pretty bitch, a witty feminist, a self-possessed, self-assured mashup of street and trash who makes you laugh while she makes you think. The responses she evokes from audiences are as diverse as her roots, but at the core there is no question about who she is. Wendy is all woman. All Ho.

Rank #10: Rupaul's Drag Race Contestant, Phi Phi O'Hara
Written and produced by Zach Adam and Heather Holley (who has written several hits for Christina Aguilera), “Bitchy” is a pop/rock anthem that O’Hara describes as if P!nk, Joan Jett and Adam Lambert had a baby. “I really wanted something that was representative of who I am,” she explains. “I have a sweet but edgy side. I needed music that matched. It is also meant to be an inspirational message to fans to never allow negative names to tear you down.” Phi Phi O’Hara’s “Bitchy” will be available Tuesday, April 8th on iTunes, PhiPhiOHara.com and all major music online retailers. 50% of sales collected on www.PhiPhiOHara.com from April 8th through May 18th will be donated to the AIDS Walk of NYC.
However, she is releasing the track as Phi Phi O’Hara and appears in full drag in the song’s music video. “I could never forget Phi Phi and the impact she has on who I am as a person and the career I have today. That’s why I felt it was appropriate to release “Bitchy” as my alter ego,” she explains. “I would like to eventually transition into singing and performing as Jaremi.”
“Bitchy” by Phi Phi O’Hara is available April 8th on iTunes and all major online retailers. For more information, visit www.phiphiohara.com.

Pence appeared in The Social Network, as Tyler Winklevoss, alongside Armie Hammer; he also played Cameron in certain scenes, for particular setups—and Hammer's face was grafted onto Pence's body in post-production to create the illusion of identical twins.

Rank #15: Rupauls Drag Race Judge, Michelle Visage
Michelle was on VH1 for 2 years hosting live coverage of such glamorous events as: The Grammy Awards, the Los Angeles premiere of Paramount’s Grease (anniversary re-release), Universal’s Blues Brothers 2000, and The Viewer’s Choice Awards to name a few. She is currently a judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race on the LOGO Network which debuts it’s 3rd season in January.
This glamorous firecracker finished arts high school in South Plainfield, New Jersey at 17 and headed for the Big Apple to follow her dream of becoming an actress. To pay the bills, Michelle auditioned for her first gig, fresh out of college (The American Musical and Dramatic Academy), and landed it. It was a coveted spot in the all girl group Seduction, signed to A&M records in 1990. A year later, Michelle had a platinum-selling album with Seduction called “Nothing Matters Without Love”. The album spawned 4 top 10 hits, with their gold single “Two To Make It Right” going all the way to number 2! Michelle achieved drinking age while on an 8 month national tour with Milli Vanilli (when they were selling out 60,000 seat venues). Not bad for a beginner!
After Seduction ended, Michelle went back into the studio and wrote and sang the remake of Bill Withers’ “It’s Gonna Be A Lovely Day”, and the song was immediately signed to Arista Records by Clive Davis himself! The song was featured on Whitney Houston’s smash “The Bodyguard” soundtrack, which ultimately sold 35 million copies!
