Raul Castillo speaks to Too Fab about upcoming Looking developments, saying of his sexy scenes with Jonathan Groff:
“There's nothing you can really do to prepare. It's just about showing up and being present with your scene partner. I have a great scene partner with Jonathan Groff and we just have a lot of fun. It's silly when you're sitting around half-naked, there are all these cameras around you, people and technicians and lights. We keep a good sense of humor about it.”

#1 After my question to him at last year's OUT100 on being a sex symbol, I finally got to more formally meet the adorable Brian Sims...who debuted his boyfriend at the event. (Not me.)
#2 After receiving a smattering of boos (the gays love their PrEP) and lots of cheers, Zachary Quinto still decided not to deliver a long speech since the Stage 48 crowd was rambunctious and drunk. After he accepted his award, host Lea DeLaria noted that the world is divided between those who did and those who did not see him in The Glass Menagerie:
#3 Speaking of which, yes, she did reference riding the fucking subway.
#4 Several Macy's models stood around looking like this and being judged by a room filled with gay men.
#5 Charming Samira Wiley thanked all of OUT's staff and her amazing parents for her award.
Scene decrees that Jonathan Groff—living his life in Looking, dying an early death in The Normal Heart—is “this century's gay icon.”
Groff talks about his decision to come out publicly after his success on Broadway in Spring Awakening:
“I wasn’t denying it or anything, I knew I would talk about it someday, but I didn’t know how or why or when. But then I fell in love for the first time after the show, and I thought ‘Well, I’d rather be out and be in love with this person than try to hide it for any job I had when I came out,’ so I just said fuck it.
“Being in love was more powerful than any job I’d had before. That was the impetus.”
