Chris Pine does nothing for me personally, but I can admit dude looks pretty darn handsome on the June/July 2013 cover of OUT Magazine. The 32-year-old actor shows off his mesmerizing eyes and sexy facial scruff for the editorial snapped by photographer Nino Munoz. Inside the issue, Pine talks about his Star Trek bromance with Zachary Quinto, specifically his co-star’s coming out. Check out a few quotes and photos below.
“So happy for him, oh man, I thought it was rad. It was really, really cool. He did it on his own time, on his own schedule. And Jonathan [Groff], who he’s dating, is such a lovely man. He’s a good guy and a great actor, and they make a fantastic couple. I couldn’t have been happier for Zach.”
Whenever I travel, I love to pick up a local magazine as my souvenir. It’s a great way to remember a vacation instead of magnets, shot glasses or other tchotchkes IMHO. This way I can recall the exact month and year I visited a particular country.
As I was doing a little Spring cleaning, I came across a few gay publications I’ve picked up over the years, which brings me to this post. I corralled the covers of a few gay mags from this month and put them all in one post. Check them all out below and cast your vote on which cover stands out the most. Enjoy.
OUT magazine just revealed their annual Power 50 list. Who doesn’t love a good list, right? For seven years, the publication has ranked powerful and prestigious gay men and women who have tremendous influence. The list is compiled of Hollywood power players, publishing magnates, political figures, web entrepreneurs and everything in between.
Once again, Apple CEO Tim Cook ranked No. 1 on the list. Along with increasing the company’s bottom line, he gets the hottest seats in town. Cook sat next to Michelle Obama at the State of the Union address.
If you read Homorazzi regularly, you know I have the biggest hard-on for Andy Cohen and his army of Housewives. Guess what? My silver fox crush made the list. See where he placed along with a few of my favorites below. It’s kinda funny how Clive Davis made the list now that he’s newly out. Side note: Aren’t the photo illustrations great. They were all created by Mario Wagner.
Harry Potter no more. Daniel Radcliffe trades his Hogwarts schoolboy uniform and signature glasses for Gucci, Hermes and other designer threads for his new photo spread snapped by Kai Z Feng for OUT magazine. Someone’s gone all high-fashion on us.
In addition to showing off his couture side, the 23-year-old actor talks about life after Harry Potter. Specifically, his much-buzzed about performance in Kill Your Darlings. Ever since the film about gay writer Allen Ginsberg debuted at Sundance, conversation has been all about the explicit gay love scenes. Here’s what Radcliffe told OUT regarding all the controversy.
“You never see a gay actor getting asked what it’s like to play straight — to my knowledge, at least, there is no difference in how heterosexual and homosexual people fall in love.” – Daniel Radcliffe
One of the highlights from the interview include talk between director John Krokidas and his boyfriend. Krokidas was worried that Radcliffe wasn’t Jewish (down there), but his BF informed him that, “Of course he’s Jewish — everyone in the world knows that. Didn’t you see the shots from Equus? He’s only British from the waist up.” LOL. Love it. Check out a couple of photos and other quotes from his interview below.
Admittedly, I’m a sucker for year-end lists and just can’t enough of them. So imagine my joy this morning when I learned Out magazine released their Out 100 list. I was like a gay kid in a gay candy store. Oh happy day.
The publication honors the most compelling lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people from all walks of life including celebrities, writers, politicians, artists, entrepreneurs and so forth. To celebrate this annual issue, the publication bestowed the honor of gracing the cover to four individuals- Jane Lynch (The Entertainer), Boy George (The Legend), Sharon Needles (The Stylemaker) and Andrew Rannells (The Ingenue). All four covers are fantastic and I can’t decide which one is the best.
A few others that made that made the OUT 100 list include Isis King (ANTM trans model), Michael Urie (Partners), Mika (singer), Elton John & his hubby David Furnish, Patrick Abner & Thomas Roberts (HIV community liaison and MSNBC anchor, newlyweds) and Omar Sharif Jr. (advocate). I also wanted to mention (thank and blame) entrepreneurs Jason Goldberg & Bradford Shellhammer for FAB.com. You don’t even want to know how much I spend over there ;) If you have time, I definitely recommend heading over to OUT.com to check out the pics of each 100 honorees and the story behind them. It’s inspiring and educational. Check out the other covers below.
Back in 1995, Alicia Silverstone’s character in Clueless fell for a “cake boy”. Turns out the actress’ gaydar in real life was equally malfunctioning. The 36-year-old recently revealed to Out magazine about her many crushes with gay guys including one where his homosexuality wasn’t revealed until years later. This despite all her friends knowing he was a disco-dancing, Oscar Wilde-reading, Streisand ticket-holding friend of Dorothy.
Q: Your character Cher in Clueless (1995) unknowingly fell for a gay. Do you have a thing for guys who dig guys?
A: I’ve had so many crushes on gay boys. My first love was so gay, and I didn’t know. I used to defend him because everyone would say he was gay, but he’d say he wasn’t. Then, about six years later, he had the big talk with me.
Too bad, she didn’t have her eco-friendly vibrator with her back then during those frustrating nights when her “boyfriend” wasn’t in the mood ;) After all these years in the industry, you would think Silverstone has fine tuned her gaydar. NOPE. She’s still clueless when it comes to that. Find out which actor she’s currently co-starring with, she had no clue was gay.
Ezra Miller has just coming out in a candid interview with OUT Magazine titled, “I’m Queer.” You probably know the 19-year-old best from his role as the nightmare that was Kevin in the film ‘We Need To Talk About Kevin alongside the amazing Tilda Swinton.’ However, this fall, Miller has another big film on the way titled, ‘The Perks Of Being A Wallflower‘. In the film, he plays Patrick (great name), an out-and-proud high schooler. I’m guessing the film has inspired him to be confident and open about his sexuality.
He and two of his co-stars (Logan Lerman and Johnny Simmon) are on the cover of OUT Magazine’s September Issue and inside is an interview with Miller where he talks openly about sex, gender, and love. Read his statement / coming out article below.
Chloe Sevginy’s new series “Hit & Miss” premieres tonight on DIRECTV’s Audience Network. In it, she pays Mia, a transgender contract killer with a secret. FIERCE. Mia’s life is sent into a tailspin when she receives a letter from an ex-girlfriend dying from cancer revealing that Mia fathered a son 11 years ago. “Hit & Miss“ tells the story of a lethal killer at the heart of a troubled family and how all of their lives will be dramatically changed forever.
The 37-year-old actress sat down with Out magazine to discuss her new show and career. Ever the fashion muse, Sevigny also poses for a series of photos shot by famed photographer Terry Richardson. Here are a few quotes from Out’s August 2012 issue where Chloe graces the cover which happens to be the publication’s sports issue. How appropriate given the London 2012 Olympics are just around the corner.
On Her New Show, “Hit & Miss”
“Who doesn’t love a challenge? My manager called me and said, ‘I got some scripts today, and they’re f**king crazy. I’ve never read anything like them, and I kinda think you’re going to be into it,’ A little way into reading the first script, I knew I was in.”
On Playing Mia
“I was worried people would be angry that they didn’t cast a real person who was transitioning, I asked why they didn’t, and the producers said they didn’t find the right person. It’s a big responsibility toward that community, and I wanted to do them right.”
