Daniel Radcliffe given 'step by step instructions' for gay sex scene in new film Kill Your Darlings

Daniel Radcliffe given 'step by step instructions' for gay sex scene in new film Kill Your Darlings | PinkieB.com | Gay and Lesbian Life | Scoop.it

Yep, in D-Rad's new film Kill Your Darlings he plays a young Allen Ginsberg, and even though he happens to wear glasses - honestly, can't *any* of Daniel's fictional characters have 20/20 vision? - there's one key difference between him and young, magical Harry. Allen's gay (and not even with one of the Weasley twins) and so Daniel found himself acting out a sex scene with another guy during the film's shoot. EEK.

James Franco's fabulously gay roast | Daily Xtra

James Franco's fabulously gay roast | Daily Xtra | PinkieB.com | Gay and Lesbian Life | Scoop.it

Yes. Yes God dammit, this is being live-blogged. All right, some back story here: When they filmed the Comedy Central Roast of James Franco last week, reports leaked that there were more than a few gay jokes since Franco has famously flirted with queer culture. As a result, the internet cranked out another round of think pieces on whether or not gay jokes were still funny. The answer: Yeah, if they’re done right. But for the sake of fairness, I’m gonna sit down on the couch with my puppy and a box of Pop-Tarts and watch this thing in earnest and blog about it. For this is the internet, and over-thinking is the name of the game.

Mike Enzi in the Republican primary next August. She has cast her run against Enzi, 69, as generational.

In the last apartment they are likely ever to live in together, Kenneth Leedom and Peter Cott were talking about eros and the public life of New York — which is to say, sex on a moving subway train. Mr. Leedom is 88; Mr. Cott is 89. Mr. Cott, seated beside an upright piano in the couple’s sunny yellow living room, listened intently, then spoke as if delivering his lines from a stage.
