Madonna

Madonna is Rolling Stone's cover girl for the zillionth time; out tomorrow. Also tomorrow: Watch the Brits live here around (I think) 2PM ET.

Madonna will perform selections from Victor/Victoria. Take that, Gaga!

No, actually, she is supposedly getting a lifetime achievement honor and performing at least two tracks. Reviews of Rebel Heart are very positive; so far, it seems IN to say Madonna has put out her best since Ray of Light. Check Telegraph (gotta love a 4/5-stars review that raves it's her “least desperate” album in a while), The Sun and Attitude.

Also, The Advocate has published a piece arguing on Madonna's behalf.

Keep reading for a rather amazing homage to “Vogue”...

Full Out: Being Openly Gay In The Military Comments (0)

Cdr-Douggie-Ward-R_3167102c

A member of British Armed Forces recounts what it's been like for him being completely out as a gay man. It's so fascinating to read, recalling that not long ago, one couldn't be gay in the U.S. military and that it was such a polarizing and politically fraught struggle.

Fat Chance: Obese Man Who Won Mr. Gay UK Now Wins Apologies Comments (0)

Stavros4

Stavros, an obese man with a dream of entertaining on the stage, entered and won Mr. Gay UK, only to later be disqualified on a technicality—he couldn't fit into the size S or size M sponsoring underwear.

Now, Boyz Magazine, which covered the event but which didn't make the offending decision, has apologized to him, as has the Mr. Gay UK organization. Mr. Gay UK claims the decision to disqualify Stavros happened locally during the London competition.

Basically, nobody will say exactly who decided that Stavros—who won fair and square—was too much of a joke to actually take the prize.

Took two years, but he's at least being acknowledged now.

IMITATION Of Life: A Review Of THE IMITATION GAME Comments (0)

Imitation-Game

BOY CULTURE RATING: *** out of ****

Though it's long overdue, Alan Turing (1912—1954)—the genius who led a group that cracked the code of the Nazis' Enigma machine and helped win WWII for the Allies—is being toasted as a hero. CumberbatchThe father of the modern computer received a posthumous pardon in 2013 and is the subject of a major motion picture, The Imitation Game, which documents his unique mind and the mistreatment (he was prosecuted for being gay and chemically castrated) that led to his suicide at age 41.

The film is a respectful, if simplified, treatment of Turing's life, which was also the subject of a 2012 documentary called Codebreaker. In it, Benedict Cumberbatch turns in a beautifully modulated performance as the socially stunted Turing, with Keira Knightley as Joan Clarke, an adventurous woman whose mind Turing respected even though his sexual orientation precluded the romance she desired. They nearly married, Turing was so fond of her—but he cared too deeply for her to allow her to enter into a sexless union.
