Kim Cattrall reunites with other Sex And The City crew absent from sequel
A post shared by Variety (@variety) Yesterday, Variety published a big interview with Kim Cattrall in which she talked about her career, her decision to step away from Sex And The City, and how she was never asked to take part in the show’s sequel, And Just Like That…She clearly had no regrets about her decision, saying, “Can you imagine going back to a job you did 25 years ago? And the job didn’t get easier; it got more complicated in the sense of how are you going to progress with these characters? Everything has to grow, or it dies.”Related: Fire up the teapot, Kim Cattrall just broke her silence on ‘And Just Like That’The interview coincided with Cattrall receiving one of the magazine’s Power of Women awards, which was presented to her last night at a glitzy ceremony in Los Angeles.It surely can’t be a coincidence that Cattrall was accompanied to the awards event by three other people closely linked to Sex And The City who were also not involved with the sequel.These were: author Candace Bushnell, on whose book Sex And The City was based; stylist and designer Patricia Field, who was behind so many of the clothing choices the characters wore, and series creator Darren Star, who has since moved on to success with other shows, such as Emily In Paris.“It means everything. We spent over 25 years of our lives together,” Cattrall told Variety of attending the event with her longtime friends and collaborators.During her acceptance speech, she also thanked the three personally.Kim Cattrall thanks #SexAndTheCity collaborators Candace Bushnell, Darren Star and Patricia Fields during her acceptance speech at Variety #PowerOfWomen presented by @lifetimetv.

L.A. Gay Club Oil Can Harry’s Is Designated Historic-Cultural Monument
This article originally appeared on Q Voice News and is shared here as part of an LGBTQ+ community exchange between Q Voice News and Pride Media.Oil Can Harry’s, the legendary Studio City bar and nightclub that closed in 2021, was recognized earlier this month for its historic and social significance to the San Fernando Valley and the LGBTQ+ community.The Los Angeles City Council designated the building a historic-cultural monument in a 14-0 vote. Councilman Joe Buscaino was absent.Of the more than 1,200 Historic-Cultural Monuments in the City of Angels, Oil Can Harry’s is only the third LGBTQ+ structure that has received the designation. The Black Cat in Silver Lake was the first in 2008.Oil Can Harry’s, which opened in 1968 and was the longest-running LGBTQ+ bar in Los Angeles, closed after the property owner sold it to a buyer who did not want to continue operating it as a gay bar.“When Oil Can Harry’s opened in Studio City in 1968, it was illegal in Los Angeles for two men or two women to dance together,” 2nd District Councilman Paul Krekorian, who initiated the effort to secure monument status for the site that’s located in his district, said in a statement.“At a time when LGBTQ people were routinely subjected to police harassment and even arrest, Oil Can Harry’s was a place of refuge for LGBTQ people,” Krekorian said.
