If you've ever seen The Queen (1968), you'll know why RuPaul's Drag Race — for all its glories — seems like child's play. The film was peopled by men willing to be seen competing in a drag pageant 50 years ago, when they faced arrest for their self-expression and skills.

Contract Playa: A Review Of SCOTTY AND THE SECRET HISTORY OF HOLLYWOOD Comments (0)

Five years ago, I posted a review of the book Full Service, the as-told-to story of Scotty Bowers, a 21430294_1815779352046499_9204368091529911051_nHollywood gas station owner who claims to have become a procurer for some of Hollywood's biggest names from the '40s onward, including Katharine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, George Cukor, Rock Hudson and many more.

Along with hooking them up with sex partners, he also claims to have had sex with many of them himself, including Bette Davis, Walter Pidgeon and both Cary Grant and Randolph Scott.

Gore Vidal on Scotty Bowers

Born Today ... Comments (0)

Just a little slice of gay history — straight actor Vincent Schiavelli was born 69 years ago today. He played the first recurring gay character on U.S. TV, on The Corner Bar (1972), a very ill-remembered, short-lived series. Sadly, he passed away from lung cancer in 2005.

The above letter was handwritten by a very young Cary Grant (when he was still Archibald Leach). Looks like gayscript to me.
