LGBTQ+ Athletes Star in Powerful New Nike Film for Pride Month
Nike returns with a short film featuring several larger-than-life LGBTQ+ athletes for its BeTrue campaign during Pride month.
The film is a call to encourage athletes who dare to compete, whether or not they are on a level playing field with the other athletes in their sport. Professional athletes like WNBA star Sue Bird probably know a thing or two about the ways women are treated on and off the court, versus their male counterparts.
“For female athletes in a league that’s trying to grow in the U.S., the ‘rules’ we’re following are geared toward men,” Bird of the Seattle Storm, told Out on Wednesday. “So that might be the WNBA versus the NBA, and some of the ways they view us, or the standards they want to have. Things have always been done a certain way, and it’s never been thoughtful for different groups of people, so how can you succeed in that world?”

Danger. Danger and excitement have been two factors I’ve most noticed the mention of, in terms of how looking for and having gay sex has changed across the last 50 years.
Several straight friends on viewing the film came away sympathetic and concerned for this dangerous lived experience. The fear of being caught, of being arrested or losing your job back in the day.
How uncertain a connection with a new person can be right up until the moment of reveal. Are they going to beat me up or make out with me?

Richard Madden thinks it’ll be a “terrible route to go down” if roles were restricted to an actor’s sexuality
Former Game of Thrones star Richard Madden has weighed in on the debate over who should get gay roles after the Sir Elton John biopic, Rocketman, came under fire for casting straight actors.
Both Taron Egerton and Madden identify as straight, and are playing Sir Elton and his former manager John Reid, who are both gay, respectively.
Speaking to The Guardian, he said: “It’s a really terrible route to go down if we start restricting people’s casting based on their personal lives. We have to focus more on diversity and having everyone represented, but I’m also a firm believer in the best actor for the part.”

Greg Berlanti Says Gay Execs Stopped Him From Casting Gay Actors
GREG BERLANTI OPENED UP ABOUT HOLLYWOOD’S INTERNALIZED HOMOPHOBIA.
LGBTQ representation on television is at an all-time high. Sadly, many queer actors are only cast as characters that match their identities. For that reason, many out creatives advocate for reserving those roles for queer talent. Without saving those roles for LGBTQ actors, many gifted queer actors would never get cast at all.
Taron Egerton: ‘I Had a Period of Feeling I Might Be Gay’
“I felt Richard’s penis … on my leg,” he told Attitude. “We shot a scene where we are both naked on a bed, and we are rolling around. I don’t really know how much further we could have gone.”
“In the script, this is the scene of Elton losing his virginity, and we wanted to try to do that justice, and also at that point, their relationship hasn’t broken down yet,” Egerton explained. “They were falling in love, and it’s beautiful because it should be. We didn’t want to play like they were a couple who were eventually going to fall apart, we wanted to play it like two guys in their early twenties who are falling in love and who are incredibly sexually attracted to each other.”
In the same interview, Egerton also opened up about discovering his sexuality saying, “When I was 14 or 15, I had a period of thinking I might be gay and I spoke to my mother about it.”

Return To The Closet was commissioned especially by Luminate and LGBT Health & Wellbeing. Filmmaker Glenda Rome helmed the production.
The documentary talks to several LGBTI people in Scotland aged 50+ about their fears as they age. Many of these revolve around losing independence and having to rely on support from carers or enter residential care.
‘I fear, if I go into care, I don’t want to return to the closet. I’ve been out of the closet since my early 20s, so it’s something that bothers me,’ says one participant.

What I Learned About Loving My Body as a Gay Man
Everyone has a story about their body. Some of us want to look great for the beach, to feel powerful and sexy when we’re in bed with someone, or to move easily without pain or discomfort.
My body’s story has everything to do with being gay.
As a kid, I was always sick and had more allergies than you could count. I had allergies to foods, dust, pollens, and fragrances. I reacted in many ways, from a skin rash to hives, earaches that were beyond painful, diarrhea, flu-like symptoms, and days spent sick in bed. To make matters worse, I was diagnosed as ADHD. Imagine pairing an allergic reaction and ADHD together! Suffice to say I never felt like I had much control over my body as a child.
Being sick a lot made me aware of how my body responded to food and foods that did not agree with me. Perhaps because of my mother’s intervention and being so reactive to food as a child, I never got fat. I was always skinny. When you’re sick all the time it’s difficult to gain weight.

Gay adult studio Noir Male responds to allegations of “not catering” to the black community
Last week gay adult performer Jace Zhu stated that he had stopped working for the studio Noir Male (tagline: “Showcases Black Men As They Deserve To Be Seen) because he felt he was “being used to sell a product that doesn’t cater to our community.” A popular gay adult gossip blog followed up on Zhu’s comment by alleging that the studio has a 37-to-30 black-to-white performer ratio, a count that the studio says is inaccurate.
We reached out to Noir Male for comment and they’ve refuted several of the Zhu’s and the gossip blog’s assertions.
In an official statement give to Queerty, Noir Male wrote:
“We were slightly shocked by Jacen’s comments, but respect his personal and professional choices, and wish him the best. We have loved working with him and even tried to get him involved in the creative process when he voiced concerns in the past as to representation; however there was no continued follow through on his end. We always ask performers to come to us with any ideas or concerns; we want this to be a studio that performers are proud of and represent MOC (men of color) in a positive light.”
See All the Times Spider-Man's Tom Holland Gave Away Avengers Secrets
Tom Holland may be in the middle of all The Avengers action but the star forced directors Joe and Anthony Russo to keep him out of the loop after a series of spoilers on Holland’s part.
Holland, 22, has a history of giving away Marvel’s secrets when it comes to several of the studio’s superhero films, albeit accidentally.
He famously revealed there would be two Spider-Man: Homecoming sequels long before the studio had announced the franchise offerings.
Holland was also the first one to share the title of the upcoming film Spider-Man: Far From Home, showing a photo of the logo on his Instagram account months after Infinity War dropped.
