If you haven't heard about Tom of Finland, you should look him up. This is a huge part of gay culture and it even crossed into pop culture. This erotic male art is so distinctive and so compelling it inspired several generations in many ways. In fact, I recall the first time I ever saw one of the images. I still can't get that mental picture out of my head. That's the kind of impact it has. I also believe, in many ways, it defines gay men and gay culture to a certain extent. And we need to be proud of this and we should own it.
And now there's a film being made. You can check that out here. And here's a link to wiki about Tom of Finland. I once had a contest and one of my readers won a collection of Tom of Finland books. You can read about that here.
Carly Fiorina On Gay Marriage
It really doesn't matter much now because Carly Fiorina just dropped out of the Presidential race, however, I saw an article about Fiorina "opposing" gay marriage I thought was interesting. I hope the information is accurate and they didn't put another gay press spin on it.
I haven't followed Fiorina very closely in this election so I can't comment. You can read more here. And here's another article about Fiorina and gay marriage.
Ian McKellen Chokes Up
This time he's choking up while reading a coming out letter that's from Amistad Maupin's Tales of the City.
Here's part of the letter.
I have to admit that I don't know much about Tales of the City but I've always wanted to know more. I also find that the older I get the more interested I am in gay culture and what it was like "back then." We've come a long way, and just like Black History, Gay History has a place now, too.
You can read the full letter here.
