James Franco Gay News

james franco gay news

He’s working on a dozen movies, teaching film, writing a novel – and still has time to paint hummingbirds at night!

James Franco – in ROLLING STONE this week!

Last spring, he clarified things somewhat, writing in a magazine article, “I’m gay in my art and straight in my life,” adding coyly, “I’m also gay in my life up to the point of intercourse.” But the line separating art from life can grow porous, as on Franco’s Instagram, where he’s posted numerous homoerotic shots of himself – bare-chested in an exercise room, his arm slung around an oiled-up actor in bikini briefs, or looking buff while getting his nipples shaved in a hotel room. Franco tells me he’s approached Instagram, at times, as “a way of finding out what boundaries are and pressing buttons.”

Gus Kenworthy Gay Athlete

I am gay.

Wow, it feels good to write those words. For most of my life, I’ve been afraid to embrace that truth about myself. Recently though, I’ve gotten to the point where the pain of holding onto the lie is greater than the fear of letting go, and I’m very proud to finally be letting my guard down.

My sexuality has been something I’ve struggled to come to terms with. I’ve known I was gay since I was a kid but growing up in a town of 2,000 people, a class of 48 kids and then turning pro as an athlete when I was 16, it just wasn’t something I wanted to accept. I pushed my feelings away in the hopes that it was a passing phase but the thought of being found out kept me up at night. I constantly felt anxious, depressed and even suicidal.

Looking back, it’s crazy to see how far I’ve come. For so much of my life I’ve dreaded the day that people would find out I was gay. Now, I couldn’t be more excited to tell you all the truth. Maybe you’ve suspected that truth about me all along, or maybe it comes as a complete shock to you. Either way, it’s important for me to be open and honest with you all. Y’all have supported me through a lot of my highs and lows and I hope you’ll stay by my side as I make this transformation into the genuine me – the me that I’ve always really been.

I am so thankful to ESPN for giving me this opportunity and to Alyssa Roenigk for telling my story to the world. I think about the pain I put myself through by closeting myself for so much of my life and it breaks my heart. If only I knew then what I know now: that the people who love you, who really care about you, will be by your side no matter what; and, that those who aren’t accepting of you are not the people you want or need in your life anyway.

Part of the reason that I had such a difficult time as a kid was that I didn’t know anyone in my position and didn’t have someone to look up to, who’s footsteps I could follow in. I hope to be that person for a younger generation, to model honesty and transparency and to show people that there’s nothing cooler than being yourself and embracing the things that make you unique. Head over to ESPN.com or click the link in my bio to read the full story and keep your eyes peeled for the November issue on newsstands soon! ‪#‎outinsports‬‪#‎comingout‬‪#‎gay‬‪#‎beyourself‬‪#‎bornthisway‬

@Jarlos 420 Gay Male Models

@jarlos-420-hot-gay-male-modelsgay-male-models-JARLOS

John Tuite and Carlos Santolalla are a gay couple  and working models AS A COUPLE. They are known by JARLOS420 on Instagram and love their pot!

Both guys have backgrounds in modeling individually, but they’ve made it clear that Jarlos, their gestalt presence, is the unit that they’re presenting themselves as for Fusion. Fusion is a boutique-style agency that is quickly making a name for itself in the New York market as well as abroad.

The decision to work together rather than separately, say the pair, came from pressures within their old agencies to remain in the closet about their sexualities.

“It’s so fucked up. After coming out, I didn’t want to be weird about it again and act straight at castings,” Tuite recounted in an interview with The Cut. “I met with this one agency and they said, “We’d like to sign you, but you have to delete your Instagram account with your boyfriend and you guys can’t go out to parties together anymore.” What the fuck?

Abercrombie Fitch Fire Male Models

abercrombie male models fired

WHY?

Abercrombie Fitch is firing all their Male Models!

The brand will no longer promote sexual marketing and they will make the stores  BRIGHTER!

Whose brilliant idea was this?

The trademark hotties are going the way of the dinosaur, as the retailer announced the brand will discontinue the use of “sexualized marketing” at all of its locations by the end of July.

No longer will shirtless men greet you at the door of Abercrombie & Fitch. The retailer is scaling back the sexiness at all A&F and Hollister locations  and decreasing its powerful trademark aroma.

 

WTF?

Dolce Gabbana Against Gay Adoption

dolce and gabanna gay marriage adoption

In a 2006 interview with an Italian newspaper, Dolce (of Dolce & Gabbana) expressed  views against gays adopting, saying:

“I am opposed to the idea of a child growing up with two gay parents. A child needs a mother and a father. I could not imagine my childhood without my mother. I also believe that it is cruel to take a baby away from its mother.”

NOW,

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana say: ‘The only family is the traditional one’   –  in an interview with Italy’s Panorama magazine.

Sir Elton John has called for a boycott of fashion label Dolce & Gabbana after the legendary designers criticised same-sex families.

In a scathing post on picture sharing site Instagram, the furious singer branded Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana “judgmental” and “archaic”.

It followed an interview with the designers in Italy’s Panorama magazine in which the pair said: “We oppose gay adoptions. The only family is the traditional one.

“No chemical offsprings and rented uterus: life has a natural flow, there are things that should not be changed.”

elton-john-instagram

Dolce added that procreation “must be an act of love”, saying: “You are born to a mother and a father – or at least that’s how it should be.

“I call children of chemistry, synthetic children. Rented uterus, semen chosen from a catalog.”

Gabbana added: “The family is not a fad. In it there is a supernatural sense of belonging.”

How can gay people  say this???? You are in the public eye and gay people buy your clothes!  LIE if you disagree.

  An estimated 37% of LGBT adults have had a child and there are an estimated 6 million children with LGBT parents.

Where’s the BEEF? at KRAFT

One hot half naked dude  brings hotness to a  picnic in this Kraft ad  –  and those One Million Moms are crazed again!

Last week’s issue of People Magazine had the most
disgusting ad on the inside front cover that we have ever seen Kraft
produce. A full 2-page ad features a n*ked man lying on a picnic blanket
with only a small portion of the blanket barely covering his g*nitals.
It is easy to see what the ad is really selling. A person has to look
closely to see the item the company is marketing because the salad
dressing bottle is so small next to the male model, picnic basket and
other food items. There is also a small Kraft logo in the upper corners
with the words “Silverware Optional – Let’s Get Zesty.” The website
getmezesty.com is listed in the bottom corner.

Kraft has gone too far and will push away loyal, conservative
customers with this new ad campaign. Christians will not be able to buy
Kraft dressings or any of their products until they clean up their
advertising. The consumers they are attempting to attract – women and
mothers – are the very ones they are driving away. Who will want Kraft
products in their fridge or pantry if this vulgarity is what they
represent?

One Million Moms cannot get over the gall of this company. It is
unnecessary for Kraft to use s*x to sell salad dressing! (An asterisk is

CHRIS KLUWE Shows His Support for Marriage Equality in OUT

Chris Kluwe ‘shows’ his 

support in OUT Magazine

By Shaun Knittel 
Best Gay News Magazine 
Staff Writer 
Outspoken straight ally to the LGBTQ community, Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe posed for pictures in the current issue of OUT Magazine.
 Kluwe, who strongly supports the freedom to marry, recently told CNN, “To me, this fight is about equality and human rights. The fact is, there are Americans who pay taxes and serve in our military — who defend this country — who do not receive the same legal protections as the rest of us. To me, that’s flat-out discrimination. That’s the same as segregation or suffrage.”
 “I will defend to the death your right to say or do whatever you want, as long as it does not oppress other people,” he said. 
The pro football player told OUT Magazine’s Cyd Zeigler he has “always relished breaking that stereotype of the dumb jock athlete because while I enjoyed athletics growing up, I also enjoyed reading and video games, and athletic sport is not what defines me as a person.”
 “I think as more and more generations start rising through the NFL, a lot of these kids see that it’s OK to be something other than an athlete,” he continued. “I think there is a much more tolerant atmosphere in the NFL now,” he told CNN, when asked if an openly gay player would be accepted in the league. “[But] until someone comes out, we never will know.”
Kluwe has also said via his Twitter account that he’s ready and willing to debate any Minnesota politician on the same-sex marriage issue. 
In fact, according to Yahoo! Sports, he recently sent 10 debate invitations to prominent local Republicans, and has not received a response.
“Citizens united – corporations are not people,” he told CNN. “And if you look at our current election, we’re spending over a billion dollars to decide who our next President is going to be, and to me, that says that money has an overriding influence in our politics right now.”
Kluwe says he’s merely reaching out to speak for those he feels are not properly represented.
 “It shouldn’t be news when someone speaks out for equality. It should be news when someone speaks out against it.”

Ben Cohen Launches STAND UP Magazine

I met Ben Cohen about 1 year ago

 when he launched his STAND UP campaign in Chicago. 
He said to me, “We plan to REALLY DO SOMETHING about bullying – not just talk about how things will get better for someone” –
AND HE HAS DONE SOMETHING!
3500+ sports teams have signed his STAND UP Charter. He is truly bringing awareness and making changes in the world of sports. 
The Ben Cohen StandUp Foundation, Inc. is the world’s first foundation
dedicated to raising awareness of the long-term, damaging effects of
bullying, and funding those doing real-world work to stop it.

Gay Atlanta can’t get enough of rugby stud Ben Cohen, and vice versa. A week after his last visit and even before he returns to top Atlanta Pride, Cohen’s StandUp Foundation announces its new magazine and sets an Atlanta launch party for November.

The first issue of the quarterly publication (photo) hits on Nov. 14
with a W Midtown Hotel launch party hosted by the cover boy – Cohen, who
else? – himself, according to a Wednesday announcement from Cohen and
his Atlanta-based foundation. 

The magazine will carry the tagline “True
Champions Stand Up,” feature athletes’ personal stories, and focus on
the “best in sports, including character, fairness and inclusion.”

StandUp magazine benefits the Ben Cohen StandUp Foundation and its
effort to fight bullying and remove homophobia from sports. It will be
available nationwide with planned distribution by subscription and at
Barnes & Noble stores. Future issues are scheduled to come out in
February, May and August 2013.

Of course, Cohen has experience as a cover boy and using his sex
appeal to further his cause with gay fans in Atlanta across the world. Video of his sexy 2013 calendar shoot is a hit in itself. The magazine cover follows his StandUp underwear line, a hot 2012 calendar (view photos), just as scrummy and yummy 2011 calendar and soaking wet 2010 calendar.

When is Hate Talk Acceptable

I know all about FREEDOM OF SPEECH.

 I know it’s the KKK’s  right  to spew hate.
 I know  Fred Phelps can say what he wants.
I get it.
And TI  agrees. 

In the newest issue of Vibe magazine, T.I.  speaks his mind  on the Tracy Morgan gay joke  controversy,(he said he would KILL his son, if he was gay)
and suggests that it’s un-American for gay people to speak out against those who criticize them…

Man, I will say this, the funniest joke I
ever heard Tracy (Morgan) say during a stand-up was, ‘C’mon man, I
think gay people are too sensitive.


If you can take a dick, you can take
a joke.’
[Cracks up laughing.] That shit was funny to me. And it’s kind
of true.’ –

um, really?  Killing your gay  son is funny?What an Ass!


While T.I. makes clear that he supports
anyone’s sexual preference, he then connects, in his opinion, a current
oversensitivity among gay people with a consequential and ironic offense
of the First Amendment. “They’re like,‘If you have an opinion against
us, we’re gonna shut you down.’ … That’s not American. If you’re gay
you should have the right to be gay in peace, and if you’re against it
you should have the right to be against it in peace.’

I don’t understand black people – who think this way. Blacks should understand our movement for equality. They have been there.

I think if this is the case, then blacks should not mind if I use the N word. Or if I call them  “colored people”.  Maybe they are too sensitive. And Jews should not mind when I use the phrase  JEW HIM DOWN.

He says if we can take a dick – we should take a joke. Does he like colored people jokes about watermelon and fried chicken?  – How about jokes about black slaves?  or concentration camps? I would hope, we have all evolved in our thinking. And know what is right and what is wrong. And understand the power behind spreading hateful thinking. Threatening to kill your son for being gay – is not funny.  Joke or not.

I wonder if TI  finds  black joke sites funny?  or in bad taste?

I really hate black rappers and their holier-than-thou attitudes.

Out Actor Model Trevor Wayne Pushing The Boundaries

I just discovered Trevor Wayne  recently.
We met through FaceBook
I knew his face, and body, almost immediately.

Due to his extreme look, he has landed numerous roles on television and excelled in the modeling world working with horror-legend Clive Barker, fashion photographer, Mario Testino, and famous portrait-specialist, Austin Young. He has modeled in photos alongside Willam Belli (Nip/Tuck), Kit Pistol (Project Runway (season 4)), Tom Lenk (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Margaret Cho (comedian), and the New York City’s urban song-stylist, Cazwell. You can find his modeling in the books Down the Rabbit Hole by Justin Monroe , Shooting Male by Eric Schwabel, and the upcoming “Imagining Man” by Clive Barker.

Wayne’s unique origin of growing up on a blueberry farm in Michigan and nomadic transitions from Indiana, Illinois and eventually Chicago, has seasoned him with a bevy of life-experiences. While in Chicago, Wayne attended the American Academy of Art. After receiving an associates degree in graphic design, he moved to NYC and was quickly discovered as an actor/model. He currently lives and works in Hollywood, CA.

Trevor celebrates the best of his edgy nude modeling work with the release of a controversial photo mini-magazine titled Pin-Up Show.

Featuring a selection of provocative work by a veritable who’s who of photographers including Barker, Austin Young, Thai Tai, Kaeden Stone, and Van Darkholme, the self-published Pin-Up Show presents Wayne’s oeuvre in the context of an underground art zine and promises to extend the actor-model-artist’s tattooed legend even further. Warning: this magazine contains Full Frontal Nudity.

However, Nudity is NOT  the main focus of his life or career.
 
I think art comes in all forms, and erotic art is really valid. It speaks to everyone’s base instincts.”  says Trevor.  

 

I won’t put nudity on my site, however, because it tends to become the primary focus. I figured doing a little mini-mag would be a perfect way to show the work I’ve done with amazing photographers yet still keep it separate. I wanted to format it to be erotic but mostly fun and not taking itself too seriously.”

“I think a sexy photo has a sense of intimacy and playfulness. It’s something that makes you look twice and almost haunts you. It’s not always explicit but has something extra going on in the photo.”

Alongside acting and modeling, Trevor Wayne has  also established himself as a visual pop artist. Stop by his  site, TREVOR WAYNE.com  and see more of his art and photos.  Buy the Book or  a piece of his art !
There are a limited number of copies of remaining of the Pin Up Show!  GRAB ONE!

There is also a great interview in the Advocate .

Huntley Woods – Actor, Model, Hepatitis Activist

HUNTLEY WOODS…
up and coming model/actor talks to us this week about growing up on
the ice and his interest in acting as well as his work with the Hep Team.

“Growing up I couldn’t play conventional sports to save my life! Baseball, soccer, basketball, football, you name it, I failed at it!” Huntley says. “But I was still athletic and overflowing with energy, so I fell into a not so common sport. I put on some ice skates and something clicked. I trained as a figure skater for about ten years. I got teased a lot, but stuck with it. Eventually it came to the point where I had to choose to skate full time as a profession or go off to college. My coaches begged me to stick with it, but I had spent SO MUCH TIME at the rink practicing, I never had a social life. So after high school, I decided to go to the University of Southern California where I pursued theater and film. I had been performing already for so many years, acting seemed like a natural segue.”

Huntley confides he always knew he was gay growing up…”I knew something was different, I just didn’t know exactly what it meant. Then when I understood what being gay was, I had been taught in catholic school that it was not an acceptable life. I didn’t know anyone who was openly gay until I got to college. There I met a lot of gay people and begun to realize it was an OK lifestyle. I could lead an openly gay life and be happy!”

A Recent graduate from USC’s School of Theatre & School of Cinematic Arts, Huntley says, “Acting is my main aspiration, but I’ve really starting to get into modeling recently and am getting very passionate about it. I think a lot of people come out here seeking fame and fortune. They wait tables by day, waiting for a big break without studying up or getting training. I love everything about the film and acting business so I wanted to know all about how it works. In school I got to learn a lot about all the roles behind the camera as well as be in front of the camera. I found that I really enjoy the craft of film making and the enormous collaborative effort that goes into it. I enjoy acting out different roles and becoming different characters. Sure, if fame and fortune come, that would be nice, but I’m not in it to be a movie star, I just hope to be successful and working. In the end I just want to work in the industry I am passionate about.”

So by day, rather than wait tables, Huntley got into learning the business of movie trailers. He is an office coordinator at a Los Angeles based company that creates the trailers and teasers we see in theatres. In his free time he auditions for various television, film, and print work. He recently landed a cover for COMPETE , the gay sports magazine and also a Neutrogena television commercial . He even helps out on OurSceneTV as a writer and host having done a segment about West Hollywood’s BIG RED BUS . “The next step is to get an agent or agency to represent me. I have been going on a lot of auditions I have found myself, but an agent is essential to take it to the next level. I am always looking to network with some great photographers and creative minds to expand my portfolio of work as well.”

 

Sounds like a busy life! When he’s not at the office, acting, modeling, or playing volleyball on the beautiful beaches of Southern California, he works part time for the Hep Team. Not just another Southern California pretty gay-boy-next-door, Huntley leads a busy life but still finds time to help worthy causes like the Hep Team.

“Hep Team works as an outreach program that goes all over the country to help make sure at-risk adults are protected against hepatitis A and hepatitis B.. They’re in NY as well and also in Chicago. I mainly handle the West Coast events, California -LA, San Diego, Long Beach, also Seattle and have done a bunch in Arizona as well.”

Hep Team has been around for 15 years. But in the last couple years  we’re seeing a lot more of the orange-clad workers and volunteers. The initiative was created by pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline, and geared toward the MSM (Men who have Sex with Men) population. The goal is to vaccinate people against hepatitis A and B, and it is working. Hep Team is a partnership of GSK, Hep Team staff, state and local county health departments and supportive volunteers. In Arizona alone, over 1,700 individuals were vaccinated in 2009 thanks to the Hep Team Project. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention supports a nationwide initiative to make hepatitis A/B vaccine available to states to undertake vaccination programs for adults to help reduce the threat.

“I got into this role quite by accident,” revealed Huntley. “A friend of mine at USC was working for the marketing company and he needed some help one weekend, so I volunteered. My role with them just sort of kept growing and expanding and now I am their Event Manager out here. I go to events all over Southern California and help run booths, train new staff and help establish new markets. I love talking to people and I love sharing my new found knowledge on the topic of hepatitis prevention. There’s a fair amount of people who are aware of it. But it brings me joy to find that random stranger I can help educate about the disease and the importance of getting the vaccines.”

If you’re in or around Southern California this summer, keep an eye out for Huntley at:

Los Angeles Gay Pride – June 11-13

San Diego Gay Pride – July 17-18

Sunset Junction – August 21-22

And you can connect with him on Facebook and Model Mayhem .

Male SuperModel Ronnie Kroell Gets Hard for Playgirl Magazine

Chicago’s  Ronnie Kroell was the only gay contestant on the first year of Make Me A Super Model.  He came in second place but the exposure has been  HUGE  for him and his career.

He has been in the news a lot lately with the buzz around his Playgirl photo shoot!

A couple months ago, Daniel Nardicio of Playgirl secured Ronnie for a photo shoot. The Levi Johnston shoot created quite a stir, but Ronnie will go  FULL FRONTAL, all the  way!  The shoot happened this  past week.

I spoke to Daniel last night.  He called me from New York. “Ronnie Kroell is shot and DONE! He was shot by Lope Navo Wednesday at The Grace Hotel. And I have to say, it’s going to be groundbreaking for Playgirl. The shots are amazing, and Ronnie is yes, hard and full frontal. You will GAG!”

Ronnie revealed, “The theme of the shoot was to celebrate fashion and one’s ability to express themselves, but also throughout the shoot,  being able to see beyond the clothing labels and beyond the labels that society puts on us to reveal something we all have – the human body, fragile, vulnerable and beautiful.”

And he added, “I am VERY happy to have worked with a truly talented creative team on  this  PLAYGIRL COVER SHOOT. Stay tuned for pictures to be released on or before MAY 15th and to get your own copy of the SUMMER 2010 issue of PLAYGIRL on JUNE 15th!!”

Daniel is very excited as well.  He  told me, “I’m convinced that the Ronnie Kroell shoot will bring Playgirl up to a whole new level.

The entire crew made for an exciting day for Playgirl, and a next step in our evolution as a magazine. I trust readers are going to love it. IT WAS  GREAT! Honestly, it could not have gone better!”

Apple vs. Adonis Mag….Apple says Guys in Speedos or Underwear is PORN!

ADONIS MAG

is the latest casualty in Apple’s censorship war!

Launched in December, ADONIS MAG was an iphone app that featured exclusive images by world-famous photographers bringing  their own vision of the male form and exploring beyond fashion, by venturing into the art of the body. It was a magazine, loaded to your phone. And  it was non-pornographic!

Just 5 issues later, Apple has pulled the plug. Stating they felt that guys in speedos and underwear, was like porn!

Apple has decided to play judge and jury. They have now gotten into the highly subjective business of deciding how much skin on even a swimsuit photo is too much for its puritanical values, and is reportedly banning “sexual connotations” and “innuendo.”

According to a developer, “Wobble” creator Jon Atherton, who claims to have spoken with Apple, the new policies include:

 

 

    • “No images of women in bikinis (Ice skating tights are not OK either)”

 

  • “No images of men in bikinis! (I didn’t ask about Ice Skating tights for men)”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

    • “No skin (he seriously said this) (I asked if a Burqa was OK, and the Apple guy got angry)”

 

    • “No silhouettes that indicate that Wobble can be used for wobbling boobs (yes – I am serious, we have to remove the silhouette in this pic)”

 

    • “No sexual connotations or innuendo: boobs, babes, booty, sex – all banned”

 

    • “Nothing that can be sexually arousing!! (I doubt many people could get aroused with the pic above but those puritanical guys at Apple must get off on pretty mundane things to find Wobble “overtly sexual!)”

 

 
This past week, Apple plug the plug  on   ADONIS  MAG.
This is ridiculous!

Apple already has parental controls in place. And we are not talking NUDITY here!

More at Business Insider.

I for one, have written APPLE and told them this is crazy.

I went online to the Apple store and PLAYBOY IS STILL THERE!

Are they just targeting the gays????

Male SuperModel Todd Sanfield Launches Underwear Collection and on the Cover of DNA Again!

 

Todd Sanfield
is one of the worlds hottest male models. He is an American model born in Michigan.
Todd has appeared on the cover of two popular mens magazines,
DNA (#84) and Tetu (#69). And just this week,  AGAIN  on  DNA (#121). Those ABS!!

 

Sanfield was taking  pre-medical courses  and   thanks to the urging of his mom, decided to give modeling a try!  “When I was about 21 – 22, it was really a fluke. My mom said I should give it  a try.  I really never saw myself doing this. So we took some  photos and sent them around, and people were really  interested in me. ” – Within a  year he was getting jobs and work!

 

Thanks  Mom!

As the newest issue of DNA is hitting newsstands around the world this week,
Todd is back in Michigan currently in school  to be   a Pharmacist.
We caught up with him  in a coffee shop this weekend and chatted about things.

 

 

He  is very busy getting ready to launch his own underwear line.
Samples have been made and production has been ordered and the first 15-20 styles
should be ready very soon  online.
He is hoping in about 3 months, the site and shopping cart will be live.
In the meantime, you can sign up now  for  updates
at  Todd Sanfield UnderwearCollection  and be a part of his mailing list.
The price range is expected to be around  $20.

He says, “I really want to keep the price down and affordable. I was just so sick of  BAD UNDERWEAR – that didn’t fit right. My design is really about comfort and fit. And also about fabric selection and overall style.

 

I like sexy underwear. And underwear should feel good – and make you feel good, when you wear it. Even though it’s covered up by pants most of the time,
I think when you wear sexy comfortable underwear, you feel confidence!”

According to Sanfield, the five words that best describe him are:
Outgoing, thoughtful, energetic, charismatic, and modest.

Sanfield says he is a total softie inside and when asked what he despised the most,
he says, “Racists. And myself after I’ve eaten 10 deserts in one day!”

When he is not busy modeling he keeps fit with yoga and he volunteers at a local hospital.
Can you imagine coming into the ER and having this hottie take your temperature???

When I asked about immediate and future plans he replied,  “Education is very important to me. It’s the most important thing for me right now.  Getting my degree and launching the underline are top priorities for me.

Modeling is secondary really.  But it kind of goes hand in hand with the underwear line. Modeling has given me great opportunities and relationships I would not have had otherwise. I really  appreciate the attention and support  people  have given me. My sister called me up one day and told me there’s now a Facebook fan page for me.

Mike Ruiz – Celebrity Photographer

New York-based photographer (and major hottie!) Mike Ruiz is best known for his high-impact, surreal brand of celebrity and fashion photography.

He has worked with everyone from Betty White,Ru Paul,  Dolly Parton and Dennis Hopper to Lindsay Lohan, The Jonas Brothers and Zac Efron. He did some great shots this month of  Lance Bass and Carmen Electra, both shown here.

The Canadian-born artist  Ruiz is also featured this month in  XEX Magazine and some of his works have become available for purchase at Prints995.

Still on hold – Mike Ruiz  developed a scripted television show  based on a group of elitist gay men living in Los Angeles called‚ “The 10 10’s.”

It’s a story that is loosely based on the eccentricities of me and the posse of super hot guys I ran around with in the early 90’s. It was brilliantly written by the super-talented Benjamin Morgan. We’ve only begun pitching it and the response has been very positive. It’s early on in the process so all I can say about it is that it is freaking HILARIOUS in a dark and super-sexy way.


Ruiz’s entrepreneurial skills led him to co-found Miauhaus Studios, a Los Angeles photography complex featuring four full-service photo studios.

Y V Y Magazine Online – Male Models, Photography, Fashion and More by Marcello and Enrico

Ahhh,  to  be  20 something and living in this day and age of digital media, connecting the world.

For those of us a bit older, remember going to libraries? These days, just point and click and you can get connected to the entire world and the entire world can come to you!

Two young guys from London are making an international name for themselves. MARCELLO and ENRICO.

Brazillian Marcello and the Italian Enrico are quite a controversial couple, both for their age (they are really young, 22 and 19 years old and their relationship started when Enrico was 16 years old), both for their chosen career, high payed (and quality) escorts.

Marcello de Giuli is 22 years old, was born in Brazil, and descends from Italians. Throughout his youth he worked in the family business of furniture design and rapidly stood out as a magnificent interior designer as well as a top-of-the-line staff manager. Three years ago he decided to depart from his former life in Brasil and embark upon a journey around the world.

Due to his dual citizenship, he selected Italy as his initial destination. Marcello was astounded by the beauty of Rome. Everything was new, everything was fresh. The hustle and bustle of the city, the delightful sights… But little did he know, for on that very evening he would meet his perfect match. He ventured into his first night out, and as he walked into a night club he immediately set his disarming green eyes onto Enrico de Giuli (at the time only sixteen but already an outstanding student at college), who reciprocated his magnetic look and was immediately drawn to him. By the end of the night they had already made plans for a future together… They later on defined this night as pure magic…

This would have been a perfect contemporary love story… but there was catch to it! The Italian laws strictly forbid someone who’s underage to engage in any sexual activity with someone who’s over eighteen. However, love always finds a way!

Inspired by this love they fled to Zurich, Switzerland, with a burning ambition to achieve several goals. As a path towards achieving such goals they started working as escorts, a job they’ve loved from the very start. Following Marcello’s desire to become a “citizen of the world”, after a few months they moved to Paris.

As they’ve always been very professional and concerned with excellence in everything they do, it was a matter of days before they acquired a lot of recognition in the Parisian scene. Not only for their youth and beauty but also for a complete deluxe service which aimed towards catering thoroughly for each clients needs and providing them with a luxurious space in a posh vicinity where his clientele could feel comfortable and at ease.

It was in Paris that they had their first “special clients” with whom they’ve taken incredible trips in which they got to know a great variety of places in the world and developed long-lasting friendship.

In  2007, they were ready for the next step: London. Amongst the fierce competition they soon became prestigious for their professional marketing and heavenly, five star hotel calibre service. They were again, in love… but this time, not only with each other, but also with the city of London. It didn’t take long for them to regard London as their favourite city and therefore establish themselves in the UK.

In January 2008, they celebrated this union and married, and from then on engaged in different areas. Also in  2008, they were awarded as “Best Escort Agency” in the Escort Awards 2008, and Marcello was finalist as “Best Escort”, an award that was granted to one of the escort who works for them.

In there spare time, the couple  started  YVY MAG.

YVY Mag is a new fast-growing online magazine about fashion and male photography. In just a  short time, they  have become a major contributor to this genre.

 

“Our main interest is the male body and anything which relates to it: fashion, art, photography.
We have grown so quickly by keeping strong relationships with models, photographers, agents and other blogs, and we are now an important reference point for those who want their work to have extensive exposure.

The high quality of content that characterizes YVY Mag means anyone working in this field seeks to be published in YVY Mag. Every day we choose only the best from the high volume of works we receive, so we can assure that on YVY Mag our readers and advertisers can find the best available on the web, regarding male fashion/art photography.”

The hot couple is quite photogenic themselves. And have been shot by another gay super couple, Sandro and Maykson, on more than one occassion.  We will feature them, at a later date.

Sensitif and Kiss In Against Homphobia

Unfortunately,

my French is no good.

But I  ADORE  SENSITIF from France.  It’s  always  loaded  with  very sic,   hot  male  models  and  news and fabulous party pictures from France.

In this months issue they highlighta  video called KISSES FOR CHRISTMAS – and show clips from a KISS IN help in  France.

According to their Facebook page, Kiss-in Against Homophobia, “Why is it the only time you can see gays kissing in the street anywhere but in the  gay Marais area, and  at  Gay Pride… why  is it  that straight people are able to bisoutes in public without bothering anyone? For those  who think that this is not normal, go together for suicide attacks in kisses! ”

This group is for everyone and all those who support the process of kiss-in against homophobia *, or people who simply find that it is a way cool / effective advocate … and at the same time, a opportunity to meet and share the love in the style free hugs 🙂 Then it says, gay, straight, kiss you where you want!”

True – in many cities, gays  are  afraid to hold  hands  and/or kiss.  And granted, in some cites, you would be attacked for such acts.

But in  many cities,  simply kissing your lover or  holding  hands might raise an ebrow, but certainly no one will stone you.

So I think the message is, we need to be more  out-of-the-closet.  And not just on Gay Pride day – and in gay areas. I know a couple who only kiss or hold hands when they are traveling in Key West or PTown!!

Show people we are normal, caring, loving human beings. We are not freaks.  The other day, I kissed  my  partner in public, in Chicago.  A straight couple actually  commented  how wonderful it was that we were so happy. And Congratulated us!

If you live in a closet and are scared….2010 is a new year. A new year to  take a step out and be counted and be proud!

Big Kisses  for  everyone!
