CobaltDC holds Masquerade Ball (inspired by TV episode); Mormon Congressman's gay son appears on AC360

Friday night, Cobalt-DC held a “Masked Ball” or “Masquerade”, including a brief stage show upstairs around midnight. 

The event seemed to be inspired by a recent episode of ABC’s “Revenge”  (itself called "Masquerade", March 31, 2013) where there is a Masked Ball scene, and the bisexual character Nolan (Gabriel Mann) figures into the scene heavily.  Nolan (like Will and Sonny on “Days of our Lives”) has become one of television’s most interesting gay character (don’t forget Cam and Mitch in “Modern Family”).  In the dance at the Cobalt, the lead dancer appears to be a caricature of Nolan.

Later in the evening, a couple of tall, gangly young men did some real "break dancing" in the center of the dance floor, an activity that is usually easier for short people.  

Friday night, Anderson Cooper AC360 interviewed Mtt R. Salmon, that gay son of congressman Martt Salmon (R-AZ).  Mtt (jr) talked about his Mormon family, and that it is locing and close even if it disagrees with him on gay marriage.  Matt is now in medical school, but at age 18 he had attempted reparative therapy, which he reports as low-key.  The link is here
