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.”

Charlie Carvers Comes Out! GAY!

charlie carver gay

Welcome to the team!!

Charlie Carver — best known around our parts for his role as Ethan on “Teen Wolf” — came out to his more than 700,000 Instagram followers yesterday.

In a touching essay, the “TW” twin admitted that while he has spent years growing accustomed to his homosexuality, he has been adamant about keeping his public and private lives separate… until now.

“As a young boy, I knew I wanted to be an actor,” Charlie wrote. “It was around that age that I also knew, however abstractly, that I was different from some of the other boys in my grade. Over time, this abstract ’knowing’ grew and articulated itself through a painful gestation marked by feelings of despair and alienation, ending in a climax of saying three words out loud: ’I am gay.’”

The San Francisco native has played a handful of homosexual characters on television, including half of the deliciously beefy (and often shirtless) twin duo on the MTV series. Not to be confused with Lydia’s love Aiden (RIP), played by Charlie’s twin brother Max, Ethan was openly gay on the show and had a longtime crush on fellow BHHS student Danny. (Remember that steamy motel scene in Season 3? We’ll never forget.)

Now that he has come out publicly, Charlie hopes his admission will serve helpful to other young people who fear their sexuality may someday hold them back.

“Honesty is probably a great step in the right direction,” he wrote. “I now believe that by omitting this part of myself from the record, I am complicit in perpetuating the suffering, fear and shame cast upon so many in the world. So now, let the record show this: I self-identify as gay. As a young man, I needed a young man in Hollywood to say that.”

Gay For Pay NEWS – MURDER

sean cody porn star

David Enrique-Meza. a gay-4-pay porn actor who used the alias “Mario Romo” and worked for the adult movie company Sean Cody is accused of killing gay millionaire Clyde Merendino from Houston and later claiming that he was the sole heir to the victim’s estate.

Maza had been in a lucrative sexual relationship with Merendino since the pair met online in 2013. Meza claimed the Merendino had written a new will — on a hotel notepad — naming Meza the sole heir to his estate.

 

According to a report in The Daily Mail, Merendino and Meza had traveled to Mexico together to move into a $300,000 oceanside condo. Because the condo wasn’t ready, they checked into a hotel.

At 10:30 p.m. on May 1, Meza left the hotel on his motorcycle — a Christmas gift from Merendino — and he was captured on video crossing the border back into the US an hour later. At 1 a.m. on May 2, Merendino told hotel staff he was leaving to help a friend stranded on the road.

Two hours later, Merendino and his Range Rover were found in a ravine. He had dozens of stab wounds to his chest and stomach.

At about 4 a.m., Meza was seen crossing back into the US again, followed 25 minutes later by his girlfriend, Taylor Langston, in a black SUV with no license plates. Meza and Langston then went to the hotel room to steal Merendino’s belongings, including a $15,000 Rolex watch. 

Although he denied killing Merendino, Meza reportedly told authorities he and Langston planned to rob the victim but got cold feet. Meza also admitted that he’d called Merendino and arranged to meet him at the same spot where the victim’s body was found.

Langston, who was pregnant at the time, told authorities she’d traveled to Mexico to visit a friend. But the friend told police he hadn’t seen Langston or Meza in a year, but that Meza had later called and pleaded with him to lie to police.

Meza is charged with interstate or foreign domestic violence resulting in murder, conspiracy to obstruct justice, and making false statements to federal officers. Langston is charged with conspiracy to obstruct justice, obstruction of justice and making false statements.

According to The New York Daily News, Meza faces up to life in prison and is being held without bond. Langston could face decades in prison but will be released if she posts $50,000 bond because she’s nursing the couple’s newborn baby.

Gus Kenworthy Gay Athlete

gus kenworthy gay man

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

Go Go Boy Interrupted to Return!

go go boy interrupted

WE’RE SO EXCITED!!!!  It’s  coming back!!  The talented Jimmie Fowlie  and  cast  are doing season 2!

 

“When I first moved to LA, I worked as a go-go dancer and there were so many hilarious stories that I always wanted to write about them! A year ago, I filmed 7 sketches that followed the story of a go-go boy who turned 30 and then got fired from the club he worked at. I called it “Go-Go Boy Interrupted.” It was part of a live show I was doing at The Groundlings in Los Angeles. Some friends encouraged me to put it online, and so I released it as a weekly web series last October. 

go go boy interrupted season 2

I truthfully never pictured it doing as well as it did. The show was featured on The Advocate Magazine’s “hot list,” Huffington Post, LA Weekly, and more! We (the director Jordan Black and I) ended up signing a shopping agreement with a production company, and with their agent, we took out “Go-Go Boy Interrupted” to TV networks to try and sell it as a  TV show. We went to HBO, Showtime, IFC, and Bravo just to name a few! 

There are still other networks that we are going to pitch to, but I didn’t want to sit around and wait for someone ELSE to give me an opportunity. Plus, the fans of the show were so supportive and on Twitter and Youtube they asked for more episodes. So, this month we are going to try and make it happen! I love all these characters and there are so many fun places for them to go!

The reason that the director and I decided to do a Kickstarter is because the first season, although it was a total blast, no one got paid. The few crew members who did, were paid way under their normal rate. Things like paying the actors, director, and crew are essential! Not only because they’re talented and they deserve it, but because they’re all working in the industry, so time working on Go Go Boy Interrupted means times away from better paying jobs. The money will also go to renting locations, renting lighting and sound equipment, food for the cast and crew. Also, certain jobs like editors and music composers are really costly. Those two positions will be $17,000 alone. If we didn’t pay our crew, Season 2 wouldn’t be possible.”

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.

Pablo Hernandez VAMPIRE STRIPPERS

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?

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?
