WELL-STRUNG Video Royals

well-strung-the-royals-gay

 

The SEXY AND GAY GROUP Well-Strung,  pop/classical fusion group, released their third music video today titled “Royals (Feat. Palladio)” in anticipation of their new album POPssical due out on October 2nd.

This number is a composition of the group singing Lorde’s smash hit “Royals” while playing Karl Jenkins’ “Palladio” from the aptly titled album Diamond Music (you may remember it from the DeBeers diamond commercials).  It is a really fun juxtaposition and the arrangement sounds incredible.  We have additional art and photos available to accompany the video and can arrange interviews with the group members (Edmund, Chris, Daniel, and Trevor) upon request.

The group is traveling to Rome to play a mass at the Vatican on Sunday, September 6th.

Pablo Hernandez VAMPIRE STRIPPERS

vampire-strippers-must-die-pablo-hernandez

What if  MAGIC MIKE meets a gay  BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER?!

While the Chippendales perform in London, Paris, and Milan, the men of OVERNIGHT MALE are stuck playing low rent beer bars in Bulgaria. And after six weeks on tour, everyone is getting cranky. The straight strippers and the gay strippers are ready to kill each other, and the only thing holding the group together is their geeky and resourceful tour manager, Jake.  No matter what Eastern Europe throws at them, Jake’s been able to handle it: aggressive fans, thieving bar owners, broken buses, and even the occasional need for bail money.

Vampires, though?  That’s a new one…

Vampire Strippers Must Die! is a zany comedy about a group of American male strippers on tour in Eastern Europe who are forced to battle an army of bloodsucking undead.  It features great dance numbers, epic fight scenes, and lots of funny character moments.

The sexy  cast includes fitness supermodels Pablo Hernandez and John Suazo, plus a whole bunch of exciting new talent.

Abbey in West Hollywood Reality TV

abbey weho west hollywood

David Cooley‘s The Abbey and its staff  are going to be the focus of a reality TV show.

According to TMZ, the uber-famous gay bar – a two-time winner of Logo’s “Best Gay Bar In The World” award – will be getting its own reality show. Apparently, an unnamed production company is developing the show and an unnamed network is “lined up,” but shooting dates have not yet been scheduled.

The famous restaurant turned nightclub after hours has reportedly already started interviewing hopeful cast members. Auditions for new employees will also take place before the shooting begins according to TMZ.

The project may be like  “Vanderpump Rules… with way more flare [sic],” so get ready for all the —probably contrived— catty drama you can handle.

Getting Go The Go Doc Project

getting go go go boys new york

How did I  miss this?

I stumbled upon this cute little movie  by accident this week  –  it’s a Sexy, innovative gay romance with Tanner Cohen & Matthew Camp!

 

“An affecting drama full of heart and humor, reminiscent of instant classics like Weekend.” — Edge Boston

 

This wonderfully innovative and exceptionally sexy drama has an infectious energy and a completely unique aesthetic as it tells a classic story of lust becoming love — and then some. Super cute Tanner Cohen (Were The World Mine) returns to the big screen as a college boy named Doc who drunkenly cruises a gay go-go boy named Go (super hot Matthew Camp – well known  New York night life performer) with the pretense of making a documentary about him.

 

new york go go boys matthew camp

“As they grow closer, flirtation blurs the line between subject and filmmaker,” the film’s description reads, “until a steamy night together solidifies deeper feelings.”

Though his character “Go” was inspired directly by his dancing alter-ego, Matthew Camp says he’s actually pretty different from what most believe him to be behind closed doors — he’s quite reserved, completely monogamous, an artist, a perfumer, and nothing like what you’d assume a New York City bar star to be.

“What you see in Getting Go is a rough representation of me,” he says. “I mean, I do run around shirtless all the time, Go and I are both not afraid of a lot of things, and we danced in our underwear, so we’re both confident. But I wouldn’t have handled most of the situations in the same way Go did. I’m not as sexual as him… I don’t go on a lot of dates, I’m very reclusive, hanging out at my house. Go-go dancing was very much a job for me and after I’d perform, I’d leave right away rather than hang out at the club.”

Now 30, Camp reveals that he began go-go dancing when he moved to the city at 21 in order to pay his bills. “I’ve never felt I should be embarrassed by go-go dancing,” he says. “It’s not prostitution – which I’m not judgmental about – but I view dancing more as performance. I don’t like opening myself up to people, so with go-go dancing, people get to just see my body, they don’t see what’s going on in my head.”

@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

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.

Is James Franco GAY?

james franco gay art interview

Wouldn’t it be great if James Franco and his cute brother Dave Franco were BOTH GAY?

James Franco does  flirt  with sexuality and gayness, that’s  for sure!  With three films slated for this spring—True Story, I Am Michael, and Wim Wenders’s Everything Will Be Fine—James Franco continues to be the busiest man in show business. Actor, director, producer, writer, poet, professor, social media maven, and cultural provocateur, he also continues to challenge us by challenging himself about preconceived concepts of sexuality and how they fit contextually into his art. So it was no surprise when he accepted this challenge to sit down with himself to discuss his life together.

In an interview with DOT 429, the straight James Franco interviews the gay James Franco…..

GayJames: But inevitably people will think that you’re gay; they will think that you’re in Milk, and Howl, and The Broken Tower, and Interior. Leather Bar because you are actually gay. That all these projects are ways of playing gay hide-and-seek.

StriaghtJames: These are all works of art, and art is free; art is its own realm. Of course, they can be read through a biographical lens and, of course, through something like Interior. Leather Bar uses my persona to talk about some of these very issues, but they are still works of art and not exactly nonfictional statements about who I am.

GayJames: Is this interview a nonfictional statement about who you are?

Cory Wade Host & Walk Queer Fashion Week

cory corey wade trans queer

America’s Next Top Model finalist Cory Wade will be taking Queer Fashion Week’s runway as one of the celebrity models.

Wade, who dropped his last name Hindorff recently, will be joined by a top celebrity model, who also recently signed on to walk the QFW catwalk.

On the 20th edition of ANTM, Wade took the show’s host Tyra Banks and crew by storm as one of the first openly gay models. He caused such a stir they asked him back as a guest on the 21 edition.

Now the 24-year old biracial model will be dazzling audiences at the first-ever Queer Fashion Week, April 16 – 19 in Oakland, California.

To see the hottest designers, celebrities and models you have to get your tickets now, http://qfw.eventbrite.com

QFW producer Christine De La Rosa said “Featuring celebrity models alongside seasoned and newly minted models is at the core of Queer Fashion Week.  I wanted to have every level of experience showcased not only in the models but also in the designers.  I believe we are at our best when we are able to break the glass ceiling and bring everyone else with us.  Cory is one of those ceiling breakers and a role model to many in the LGBTQ community.  I am thrilled and honored that he is participating in the inaugural year of QFW.”

The biracial openly gay model from Philadelphia is excited, proud, and a little bit “pissed off” that there hasn’t been a fashion week highlighting LGBT designers and models before now, he said.

At the same time, he believes Queer Fashion Week is a part of a revolution and might even push the boundaries toward change in the fashion industry as Banks wanted him to do on the show. As Wade learned on the show fashion isn’t as all-inclusive and queer-friendly as it is assumed to be, but it showed him “where we actually are as far as fashion is concerned and some of the hurdles that we still have to overcome,” he said.

That’s changing though. He feels that Queer Fashion Week could shake up the fashion world as a part of revolutionary change that’s on the verge of reshaping fashion.

“It’s important that we emphasize that it isn’t important how we classify ourselves sexually, [but by] just showing everyone that we are just as good and just as qualified to be those household names,” said Wade, who is excited to be “on the forefront of the fashion industry really breaking boundaries … starting a movement that is all-inclusive.”

“This could potentially change the fashion industry in a very, very positive way,” he added.

Reflecting on Banks and his experience on the show, “It seemed like she was always in my corner and really wanted me to push the envelope and always wanted me to be that model to like break that boundary in the industry,” said Wade, noting that “a few of the other judges couldn’t stop harping on my femininity.”

Currently, Wade’s experience flipping through the pages of magazines all he sees is the hunky all-American men and the fashions they model don’t exactly fit his style sensibility.

“As a gay man, when I flip through magazines and I see that all-American muscle bound male over and over the first thing I think is, ‘Oh, I can never wear that,'” he said.

 

Wade believes he’s not alone in wanting to see models who reflect back to him or themselves rather than “the same carbon copy guy just over and over again,” he said.

Sure there are a few transgender models making a name for themselves on the runways and appearing in mainstream fashion magazines, even taking a few covers away from the usual celebrities and supermodels, but he challenged, does anyone know these model’s names?
“You know that they are there, but you can’t name names because they aren’t famous,” said Wade.
Part of the problem is that LGBT people in the fashion industry have made names for themselves behind the scenes as designers, makeup artists, and stylists, but not on the catwalk.
Not to say that designers have it easy. Wade pointed out that he was aware that there were designers designing for the people rather than the runways and fashion magazines, but there is also a huge fear to go all out to create androgynous styles or designs for different body types. It wasn’t clear if there was a market.

“I think that we are at a place now where there are so many people who want to explore different facets of themselves [that] now that there is a market for designers who want to go that route,” said Wade, who hopes the fear to create different lines of clothing fades as people buy and start seeing them in the pages of magazines.

It starts with Queer Fashion Week.

“Something like this, it just makes it I feel like it’s going to give a lot of people hope. Like they are going to see that there are so many different walks of life and they are all beautiful,” said Wade. “It could really change this whole experience. It could really change the whole fashion industry in a very positive way.”

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.

A gallery of men from photography’s maestro

The way men are seen in photography, in fashion, and the way that men look at pictures of themselves has changed in recent years. It is a subject that has come into focus: The masculine image, a man’s personal style, changing attitudes to the male face and body.”
— Mario Testino

Featuring an essay by Pierre Borhan, an interview with Patrick Kinmonth, and many previously unpublished works from Testino’s archive of thousands, the book traces the evolution of male identity over the past three decades. Costume, tradition, gender play, portraiture, photojournalism, and fashion collide as Testino observes masculinity in all its modern manifestations: through the dandy and the gentleman, the macho and the fey, the world-famous face to the unknown passerby.

Sexy Steve Grand First Album in March

steve grand gay chicago

CHICAGO’s sexy and talented Steve Grand is gearing up for release his debut album All American Boy March 24 after a very successful Kickstarter last year, Out reports:

Grand is an openly gay singer who’s certainly country-inspired, but does not self-identify as a country artist. “Music is subjective,” Grand says, “The lines of life are blurring. We are seeing that in music as in sexuality and gender identity…There’s nothing different about my music just because I’m gay. I sing about things that I go through, but they are things that we all go through, regardless of sexual orientation.” […]

A full-length album has also allowed Grand to follow an arc or storyline. “Each song needed to function as a plot point on that arc. A lot of things in life follow that trajectory, where there’s a beginning, middle, and end. Relationship do that, growing up does that, life does that.” Every number, Grand adds, ”explores some kind of relationship, whether it be a relationship with a romantic partner, a relationship with a friend, a relationship with the past, a relationship with something destructive, a relationship with a community.”

I AM MICHAEL – New Coming Out Film

-i-am-michael-stills-main-

PHOTO: James Franco is teasing the Sundance premiere of his new film by teasing co-stars Zachary Quinto and twink cutie Charlie Carver in a steamy hot shirtless pic of them sucking face and going at it.

 

Perhaps the most controversial movie at this year’s Sundance Film Festival is I Am Michael, which stars James Franco as Michael Glatze, the prominent gay rights activist who became a Christian, turned against his old allies, and declared that he was no longer gay.

 A remarkably even-handed account of outspoken gay-rights journalist Michael Glatze’s 180-degree identity reversal, which shocked friends and admirers after he found religion, rejected his queer “lifestyle” and became a Christian pastor.

While admirable in its seeming impartiality, Justin Kelly’s hot-potato directorial debut won’t be seen by many beyond the arthouse and festival circuit, but it will nevertheless rile viewers and provoke discussion on all sides, simply because it cuts to the heart of the self-doubt, fear and prejudice associated with modern homosexuality.

Kelly clearly wants to be as fair as possible to the facts, which found their way to him via executive producer Gus Van Sant. The “Milk” director had read a story in the New York Times called “My Ex-Gay Friend,” written by Benoit Denizet-Lewis, one of Glatze’s former colleagues at XY magazine. The world is full of stories of young people who have gone through anti-gay conversion (or “reparative”) therapy, though Glatze’s case is unique in that he had been a vocal activist for gay teens, serving as managing editor of XY as a means of reaching other confused young men who might otherwise be depressed or suicidal without positive gay imagery and role models.

(Read more at Variety)

Zachary Quinto stars opposite Franco as Bennett, Glatze’s longtime boyfriend. SLATE  asked the openly gay actor (who was joined for the interview by producer Neal Dodson) whether he’d had an opportunity to meet Glatze and his ex-boyfriend, and why he wanted to make a movie about the controversial figure.

Gay Male Models Rhodes Twins Come OUT

rhodes-twins-gay-male-models

YouTube personalities and male models Austin and Aaron Rhodes have had a significant social media following since they began loading clips to their channel nearly six months ago.

This week, the 20 year old pair decided to start off 2015 in a major way by utilizing their platform to both come out as gay to their father over the phone while recording the event in order to share it with their followers — and the world.

This video inspires a roller coaster of emotions, as the boys initially struggle to get the words out. When they finally do, their father offers a  good  response to his sons: “It’s the way things are, you know? You’re grown people. You grew up in a lot different generation than me. I just don’t really know what to say — you know I love you both and that’ll never change.” – – I wish parents would not say things like, “It’s just the way it is ” – or “well it’s  your choice..it’s  your life….” – IT’S  NOT A CHOICE. But I am sure the news caught him off guard and at least it was not a negative response.

 

You may remember last summer, another set of male twins, Adam and Luke came out to their family on YouTube.
