"Simply put, the sacher torte is the little black dress of chocolate dessert."

If you missed last weekend's Dirty Sexy Chocolate Show at the Top Hat here's something to tide you over until the next one. (And there will almost certainly be a next one.) Photographer/videographer Bill Munoz presents a peek at Valentine weekend's cabaret-and-cooking extravaganza directed by Jeremy Sher and starring a notable cast of performers including Reid Reimers, Heather Adams, John Sporman, Tyler D. Nielsen and Margi Cates.

"Surrender to the heat," as they say.

Kalispell's Shane Bitney Crone makes a cameo in Rayvon Owen's coming out video

Posted By on Tue, Feb 16, 2016 at 6:40 PM

In 2013, Shane Bitney Crone released a documentary called Bridegroom about the death of his partner, Tom Bridegroom, and the devastating aftermath dealing with family members who didn't approve of their relationship. The Indy spoke with the Kalispell native about the documentary when it screened at the Roxy in November 2013. Bridegroom explores the hardships of growing up gay in Kalispell and other small towns.

"It really wasn’t until I met Tom that I started to finally be more open with who I am," he said in the interview. "I wasn’t completely proud of being gay, but he made it easier to forget my past—all the years of anxiety and panic attacks and being bullied. Unfortunately I still struggled a lot even being in a relationship with him because of that deep-rooted shame. It wasn’t until he passed away that I finally decided to be more proud."

Over the last two years, Crone has become one of the most high-profile and popular LGBTQ advocates on social media. On Valentine's Day, he made another big splash by showing up in a music video featuring "American Idol" alumnus Rayvon Owen. The singer took the opportunity to use the video for "Can't Fight It" as his way of publicly coming out. The video shows him singing by himself in a night club, while a man, played by Crone, and woman talk over cocktails. At the end, he walks over to their table and grabs Crone's hand before kissing him. Owen spoke with Billboard, who released the video, and the Human Rights Campaign, about the project and how Crone inspired him. Crone has also confirmed on his Facebook page that the two are dating.

"I believe that in death, Tom helped me find new life—with Rayvon," Crone wrote on Monday. "Some people may think that's crazy, but I believe with all my heart that it is true."
