In The Name Of Love: A Review Of PRIDE Comments (0)

PridePride is a rare gay film that isn't about sex and romantic entanglements.

BOY CULTURE REVIEW: **** out of ****

Writer Stephen Beresford and director Matthew Warchus (1999's Simpatico with Nick Nolte, Jeff Bridges and Sharon Stone) have crafted the perfect '80s gay movie in 2014's Pride, which tells the feel-good-'n'-Socialist story of Great Britain's striking miners of the summer of '84 and the unlikely alliance between them and a group of gay activists.

Mark-Ashton-PrideThe late Mark Ashton (L) and Ben Schnetzer (R), who ably brings him to life in Pride

In 1984, with miners on strike and being starved out by heartless right-wing PM Margaret Thatcher (her face in the film begs for boos), a grassroots group calling itself LGSM (Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners) decides to align itself with the cause of the miners, recognizing fellow underdogs. Their efforts are met with some resistance from the workers, who don't look too kindly on perverts and fairies, but they are ultimately welcomed and open minds even as they work to collect donations.

Boondocks-tyler-perry

Tyler Perry has allegedly let his close friends know he's gay, after announcing at his birthday party that he'll become a dad. I dunno if I believe he would do it this way. We'll see.

Gay-bashing-suspects-harrigan-knott-williams-940x540

Here are the mugshots of the twentysomethings accused of perpetrating that vicious gay-bashing in Philadelphia. Innocent until proven guilty, legally speaking, but we have seen them on video so don't feel bad if you're already hoping their fucking lives are ruined over this. I hope they get stiff sentences and suffer always. Sociopaths, out stalking gay people to beat the hell out of for no reason before having a fun rest of the night.

Take It From Big-Mouth: Jonathan Bennett Is Gay Comments (0)

Jonathan-Bennett

Julianne Hough casually mentioned on TV that DWTS competitor Jonathan Bennett is gay, in the context of an anecdote about how he once tweeted her a compliment on her butt.

This will, of course, lead to the usual reality-ignoring arguments that people shouldn't care who's gay, shouldn't say anyone's gay if they're not out, and that it counts that he's out because some blogs have said so and he is living his life as a gay man.

In fact, Bennett is not openly gay. He is not out. But Hough rather innocently outed him, because he's glass-closeted at best. Will be interesting to see if he ever addresses it, possibly even using it as part of a package shot during an upcoming episode of the show.
