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.

Let Tom Of Finland Tuck You In Comments (0)

Tom-of-Finland-gay

Gone are the days when gay men had to sneak peeks at their Tom of Finland art when no one was Tom-Finlandlooking, when it would be stashed under the bed with all the other porn, when their survivors would discover stacks of it and dispose of it without ever letting anyone know their kin had been...one of those.

Now, the art of the late illustrator is available on bedsheets and duvet covers, towels and totes. Finlayson, an esteemed textile maker in Finland, is adding a Tom of Finland line just in time for the holidays.

This follows hot on the heels of Finland's successful intro of a Tom stamp.

The Hunter Gets Captured By The Gay Comments (0)

Ass-hunter

Disgusting...a game called Ass Hunter! encourages straight players to kill gay people:

“Popular game hunting on gays is now on android! Play and do not be gay! Legendary game, where you are hunter and your mission is to kill gays as much as you can or escape between them to the next level. Gays may be hidden in bushes and unexpectedly catch you. Remember! When they catch you they will do with you whatever they want ;).” 

Like the hunter shown, most homophobes are as ugly on the outside as they are on the inside and therefore have nothing to worry about—we don't want your sorry asses.

Gay-rapper

The Popinjay has released a double-video for his songs “Superman Glasses” (an R-rated orgy of gay stereotypes) “Kill the Straights” (a blood-thirsty satire of homophobic rap songs that turns the tables by calling for the death of all straights). 

It's pretty gross stuff if you don't take it in the way it was intended. Or maybe it is anyway. Your opinions welcome...

  Charlie-Hunnam Charlie-Hunnam-1 Charlie-Hunnam-2 Charlie-Hunnam-3 Charlie-Hunnam-4 Charlie-Hunnam-5

Charlie Hunnam is kickin' ass on Sons of Anarchy, but gay fans remember him from Queer as Folk. In Men's Health (December 2014), he recalls how he got the gig:

“When Hunnam's first talent agency in England tried to pigeonhole him as a model, he went rogue and found an acting gig on a kids' show called Byker Grove. Then he returned to the agency and said, 'You didn't get me this job, but as a good-faith gesture, I'm going to give you the commission  But you need to start sending me out on stuff.' The agency listened. His next role was on Queer as Folk, which opened the door to Hollywood.”

Rising To The Top: Michael Sam Covers GQ Comments (0)

Michael-Sam-GQ

Michael Sam may not be in the NFL anymore, but he still rates as one of GQ's Men of the Year, posing for Peggy Sirota for the cover.

He says he wants to be a distraction based on his performance in sports, but knocks those who focus on his sexual orientation as being somehow other, saying of them, “Gotta keep bringing up the locker-room situation because he’s gay.”

Sam goes on to tell Andrew Corsello that his coming out story might have been different had he felt he had more of a choice:

“If I had it my way, I never would have done it the way I did, never would have told it the way I did. But the recruiters knew, and reporters knew, and they talked to each other, and it got out. If I didn’t have the year I did, nobody would have cared. But I have no regrets. Some people can argue that I had the potential to go higher in the draft. But I think everything happens for a reason. It looks good to see me in the position I’m in now, because I can show the world how good I am and rise up the ranks. I’m at the bottom now. I can rise up, show I’m a football player. Not anything else. Just a football player.”

He also talks about his troubled childhood:

“Only a handful of people really know how I was raised. Certain family members weren’t…there. They were ghosts. My brothers were the ones who were there. Most of the time, that was scary. I tried to stay away as much as possible. We called the cops on my brothers so many times I can’t even count. Not only for hurting me. They’d abuse my sisters. Verbally abuse my mom. My brothers were evil people. I don’t have a relationship with them now. They’ve both written me letters from prison. For them to dare to call themselves my brothers—I can’t live with that.”
