Mr. Raspado will serve as the ambassador for the global LGTB community and, of course, he will definitely focus on HIV advocacy. 

And his costume would be perfect for "The Gay Adventures of Simbad"

George Michael, one of the world's greatest musical talents, will be receiving the Elizabeth Taylor Humanitarian Award at the 27th Annual Project Angel Food Gala on August 19th in Los Angeles.

 

Project Angel Food is an organization that encourages and supports sick people who are battling a critical illness.

 

Mr. Michael, who will, of course, be receiving the award posthumously, began to support the organization in 1993.

Producer/director Ryan Murphy, who has achieved enormous success on television, is bringing Mart Crowley's classic play, "The Boys In The Band", to Broadway.

 

An all-star cast is under consideration.

 

Will Matt Bomer and Zachary Quinto and Jim Parsons be among them?

 

How about Finn Wittrock, too?

Add Russell Tovey to the mix

It is just a silly thing I noticed in two back to back film trailers. Probably mere coincidence.

I watched this trailer. Then it was followed by another for a recent film featuring James Franco called I Am Michael. What tickles me is that both movies have shots of hands at piano keys. Is that the new gay stereotype trending in indy films? You must be piano literate in order to be a struggling gay man?

Maybe- Michael Grant actually plays the piano on screen- and he is very good.  I avoided "I Am Michael" based on a true story about a man who went from gay to straight (?!)   "Fair Haven"is like a gay movie for the Hallmark channel

"Fair Haven" (2016) I just saw this on show time is a well made gay theme drama about James ( Michael Grant) who comes back to his farm town after undergoing a gay-conversion therapy.  Tom Wopat plays his conservative father.  Grant who looks like a young Tom Cruise and Josh Green make a cute couple.   https://youtu.be/3tdhLaOmXds

You can't say enough about Rupert Graves.

 

I just bought a DVD of his readings of Shakespeare's sonnets.

 

Of course, you know that most of them were written to a beautiful red-headed young man of royal birth.

 

Henry Wriothesley, the third Earl of Southhampton.

I only saw Gabriel Ebert in "Gently Down The Stream".  He's a very magnetic presence on stage.

 

In the play, he falls in love with Harvey Fierstein, a much older man.

 

Then, he falls in love with Christopher Sears, who's younger than Gabriel Ebert's character is.

 

Luckily, I ran across Harvey Fierstein in the lobby of the Public Theater.

 

He's a very friendly person.

 

He even shook my hand.

 

I asked him how he found the play.

 

He told me that Martin Sherman sent the play to him.

 

I am hoping that this play will be available on DVD.

 

I wonder if Gently Down the Stream will get to London, which is where I saw a few of Martin Sherman's plays: Bent, When She Danced, and A Madhouse in Goa. Bent starred Ian McKellen and Tom Bell; the other two plays starred Vanessa Redgrave, but for me the real star of A Madhouse in Goa was a brilliant Rupert Graves. 

 

Britain's National Theatre will be doing a reading of Bent as part of their Q ueer Theatre series, which includes many interesting readings (including a play by Mae West) and a full production of Angels in America.

Sorry I missed it. I met Gabriel Ebert once -- lovely, talented actor, who also plays the ukelele.  Saw him in Brief Encounter, 4000 Miles, and Casa Valentina. Here he is in Casa Valentina:

It's over now - I was lucky enough to get two of the few remaining seats - but Martin Sherman's "Gently Down The Stream" with Harvey Fierstein, Gabriel Ebert and Christopher Sears was one of the great theatrical events of this past theater season here in New York City -
