THE SEEN! Muscle Pool Party at White Party Palm Springs

Were you seen at the Muscle Pool party for White Party Palm Springs this past Saturday? We were there to capture hundreds of scantily clad men, and some of their female friends under the hot desert sun. It was Speedos and pecs gathering around a pool at host hotel Palm Springs Hilton, during Jeffrey Sanker‘s White Party Palm Springs weekend.

White Party 2019, the largest gay circuit party in the U.S., was back to celebrate three decades of music, dancing, pool parties, go-go dancers and a lineup of international DJs and guest stars this weekend, from Friday, April 26, to Monday, April 29, in the City of Palm Springs.

The Muscle Pool Party on Saturday was just one of three pool parties that weekend. It was sun, studs, and fun with some gorgeous White Party Gogo Boys as a backdrop. White party flexed its production muscle and things got hot, sweaty, and ripped with DJs Isis Muretech (Mexico), and Anne Louise (Brazil). It was a sea of tiny swimsuits and summer bodies dancing and getting crazy. There was even a gay wedding by the pool. Never mind that it happened before a crowd of half-naked guys. That union is bound to last.

Brazilian singer Niki Valentine was back. She worked the crowd on stage and was seen throughout the day frolicking with pretty boys at her VIP cabana by the main dance area. She appeared to be having a blast splashing around in a kiddie pool and posing for photos with some of her friends.

The crowd was also treated to special performance by actress, songwriter, dancer, model, and rising pop recording artist Ashlee Keating, who sang her pop hit Hurt Me So Good and she surprised the crowd with the debut a new song.

“I had no idea I’d be here 30 years later,” he told WEHO TIMES during a ribbon cutting ceremony this past on Thursday, April 26. “It was so much fun 30 years ago with 500 of my friends and now I have 25 thousand of my friends. The City of Palm Springs has changed so much, it’s amazing. It’s the most gay-friendly city in the entire world. It’s great to be here.”

Hollywood’s ‘Twink’ Pool Parties

In gay company, use of the word “twink” is typically paired with a rolled eye and a condescending tone. At its most pejorative, the term describes a uniquely disposable kind of young gay man: Hairless, guileless, witless. The term’s namesake is Twinkie, a junk food containing shiny packaging, a sweet taste, and zero nutritional value.

It’s a label that mitigates the need for names or personalities or agency: “twinks” can be bussed into parties, thrown into pools, put into a tiny Speedo—or no tiny Speedo at all—and ornamentally placed around the water’s edge like living, breathing, giggling statuary.

Such is the purported scene at the infamous pool parties hosted by Hollywood luminaries like Bryan Singer, 48-year-old director of .

The gay filmmaker is the subject of a lawsuit filed in a Hawaii federal court alleging that he drugged, raped, and assaulted Michael Egan, then seventeen, in the late nineties. It was at pool parties in a mansion in Encino, Egan told The Daily Beast, not hosted by Singer, that the worst of the abuse took place. “At the house, it was drugs put in drinks. Liquor poured down my throat. Rules in the house: No swimsuits, no clothes out by the pool area. I was raped numerous times in that house. Various types of sexual abuse. You were like a piece of meat to these people. They’d pass you around between them.”

Marty Singer, Singer’s lawyer, has vehemently denied the claims. “In a statement, he said: “The claims made against Bryan Singer are completely without merit. We are very confident that Bryan will be vindicated in this absurd and defamatory lawsuit. It is obvious that this case was filed in an attempt to get publicity at the time when Bryan’s new movie [] is about to open in a few weeks.”

“We look forward to our bringing a claim for malicious prosecution against Mr. Egan and his attorney after we prevail,” Singer added in a later statement. “It is obvious that plaintiff’s attorney is not looking to litigate the case on its merits. This matter is nothing more than the attorney seeking to get his 15 minutes of fame by sending out a press release with his ‘media consultant’ yesterday and following up with a press conference today. Attorneys who try cases don’t hold press conferences.”

Egan’s allegations of criminal behavior and abuse couldn’t be further removed from the testimony of one attendee of Singer’s pool parties that has spoken with.

According to an interview with recording artist and actor Jason Dottley, who attended pool parties hosted by Singer for nearly three years, the parties, while wild, were not occasions where he witnessed any of the kinds of criminal behavior detailed by Egan in his suit. “They were not large parties—20 or 30 people, max,” said Dottley. “Very chill, very relaxed—I never saw anyone doing drugs openly. There was usually a bartender making drinks. I remember a hot tub that could have held, like, 20 people. It felt like any kind of Friday night hangout, to be honest.”

Singer’s pool parties have been a topic of discussion in gay entertainment circles for years. Some parties, co-hosted with fellow out director Roland Emmerich, have featured more than a thousand celebrants. Emmerich told The Advocate, “when [Singer] makes a New Year’s party, there’s like 600, 700 twinks running around and he’s hiding in his room. That’s quite typical.” Emmerich estimates that the last party they hosted, in 2009, drew 1,200 guests.

Dottley attended his first “Bryan Singer Party” in the summer of 1999, at age 19. It was over the course of this same summer that some of Egan’s most damning claims allegedly took place: That on a trip to the Hawaii estate of hair care tycoon Paul Mitchell, Singer drugged him with cocaine, forced him to perform oral sex in a hot tub, and raped him beside a pool.

“Everyone knew Bryan Singer liked his boys younger,” according to Dottley. “The age range was [underage], they were acting like they weren’t.”

Despite being “Bryan Singer Parties,” most of the gatherings weren’t even held at the director’s home. In fact, it was never clear to most attendees exactly owned the mansions they were staying at—most likely, the spaces were loaned to Singer and his friends by wealthy affiliates who didn’t mind comely, scantily clad young men lounging by their infinity pools. “If you’re a famous Hollywood director, you don’t want a bunch of strangers in your home,” Dottley explains. “I’ve been to a pool party hosted by Drew Barrymore that wasn’t at her house, either—it’s pretty common.”

In the days before Facebook invitations and mass texts, “word would just sort of get out” that Singer was hosting a party, according to Dottley. “You would know one direct friend of his who was told that he could bring friends, and he’d bring the friends who sort of fit what Bryan wanted around.” Young men attending were primarily actors, models, singers, and would-be members of the entertainment industry—although never anyone who was working on one of Singer’s movies, says Dottley. “I never saw anybody who was openly working on one of his projects… It was about creating an environment with the eye candy that he appreciated.”

Part of creating that environment was an informal dress code: The cutest outfit you had. “With the mind of a 19-year-old boy, going to a big Hollywood director’s house, you dressed to impress. Labels ,” Dottley says.

According to court papers filed by Egan’s attorneys, pool parties frequented by Singer, and hosted by millionaire founder of Internet video pioneer Digital Entertainment Network Marc Collins-Rector, had a strict dress code: nothing. “In compliance with the ‘rules’ imposed by Collins-Rector that people in the pool area were not allowed to wear clothes, Plaintiff was nude as was Defendant Singer.” Dottley says that at the parties he attended, there was no hard-and-fast ban on swimwear, although the environment was more than accommodating for the majority of attendees who had “forgotten” to bring swim attire.

“I don’t recall anyone bringing a bathing suit,” says Dottley. “It was a healthy mixture of underwear and no underwear.” He pauses. “Mostly no underwear, to be honest.”

Despite the ubiquitous presence of attractive, nude, barely-legal young men, Singer didn’t fit the mold of other “lecherous Hollywood types” that Dottley had known in Los Angeles. “Bryan was always really sweet and kind.”

According to Dottley, who described himself as “shy and body-conscious” at 19, Singer most often approached him. “He’d usually start a conversation with me—he was fond of the fact that I’m from the South. He was definitely an instigator [of the conversation], but I never felt intimidated. He never once came on to me, and I never saw him act that way to anybody else,” despite being “totally his type.”

What kind of guy merits attention from one of Hollywood’s most successful directors? “Fresh off the bus. New to the city, definitely young, 18, 19, 20, and good looking,” says Dottley, as photos posted by Gawker of the parties seem to show.

As night fell, and partygoers grew more intoxicated, Dottley says, Singer’s parties would take a turn. “At around two, two-thirty in the morning, there would be a dozen guys in the hot tub, and those who wanted to stay and…partake, could.” Dottley himself never stayed to witness the party’s logical conclusion, but his description reads like the opening sixty seconds of a downmarket porn: “Two guys would start to make out, and then there’d be this domino effect… I don’t know what happened, exactly, since that was my cue to exit, but I could probably guess.”

reached out to a representative for Bryan and Marty Singer, but had received no response at the time of filing the story.

This Gay Man Was Kicked Out of Vegas Pool Because of His “Speedo”—Watch

„I was made to leave the pool for wearing a Mr Turk bathing suit that they said was not ‚in integrity‘ with the brand of the pool party.“

In an unfortunate act of discrimination, a gay man was kicked out of a pool party in Las Vegas this weekend because of what he was wearing. Chris Donohoe recently took to Facebook to showcase a video of himself being removed from the Encore Beach Club because of the swimsuit he wore. 

In the post, he said: „I was made to leave the pool for wearing a Mr Turk bathing suit that they said was not “in integrity” with the brand of the pool party. In other words, I was kicked out for being a gay man wearing a bathing suit that was just a little too gay for the The Beach Club Encore Las Vegas to tolerate.“

He accompanied the post with a full video of him having to explain himself to the bouncers. He ended his post with this: „Please repost and share this video. I’m going to pursue this to the fullest extent possible until LGBTQ+ people are no longer policed and discriminated against at the Wynn Las Vegas.“

Watch below. And for reference, this is the dress code listed on the website, stating proper swim attire includes „swimming suits.“

This Footage of a Gay Pool Party in 1945 Inspired a New Documentary

This Footage of a Gay Pool Party in 1945 Inspired a New Documentary

“I just knew that it was gold. It was something special.” 

A new documentary is under production after filmmaker Geoff Story made a unique discovery at an estate sale in St. Louis, Missouri, according to St. Louis Public Radio.

Decades-old home movies show men in the summer sun, dancing with one another and kissing at a private pool party in 1945, ephemeral freedom radiating from them. Having made the rare find of a depiction of queer life during a time when being found out as LGBT could ruin almost every aspect of your life, Story has started piecing together parts of the home movies into Gay Home Movie. The film will explore the time period of the movies, where invisibility was imperative to survival.

The films were bought at the estate sale of Buddy Walton, who was a preferred hairdresser to celebrities in the 40s. “Queens and president’s wives and movie stars – he was always around fancy places and fancy things,” Susie Seagraves, Walton’s niece, told St. Louis Public Radio. “He had a beautiful life.”

Since stumbling on the recordings, Story has made an attempt to find anyone from the pool party who might still be alive today and willing to talk about it. He and his co-director, Beth Prusaczyk, have found relatives of some of the men, but none of the men themselves. “We naively set out thinking, ‘Oh, these men might be in their mid-90s, they could still be alive,’ and that might be true,” said Prusaczyk. “But I don’t know if we’ll actually find them.”

Story, a gay man himself, was reportedly captivated by the scenes in the film, some depicting uniformed soldiers kissing other men, the fleeting happiness of the scenes a poignant force. Many of the men in the film are seen with wedding rings, only able to take a brief respite from the life-long façade they’d constructed for themselves. “I just knew that it was gold,” Story said of the films. “It was something special.”

‘Couldn’t believe I was seeing it’: Home movies offer rare glimpse of gay life in St. Louis in 1945

Dozens of gay men gather for a pool party in a secluded spot in Hillsboro, Missouri. Home movies capture their easy affection and carefree dancing. 

But they’re not recent videos. The movies were taken in 1945.

St. Louis filmmaker Geoff Story has begun weaving the films into a documentary, “Gay Home Movie.” It offers a rare glimpse into a largely invisible world, a time when same-sex relationships were not only looked at as immoral — they were illegal.

As a gay man, Story is fascinated by the brittle, flickering scenes that include a uniformed World War II soldier kissing another man.

“There was such a beauty in that moment,” Story said. “I kind of couldn’t believe I was seeing it.”

Story stumbled upon the films in the mid-1990s, a half century after the pool party, at an estate sale. It was at the Lindell Boulevard home of the now-deceased Buddy Walton, widely known as St. Louis’ “hairdresser to the stars.”

From Eleanore Roosevelt to Ethel Merman, whenever celebrities and dignitaries came to town, they all went to Walton’s salon at The Chase, said Walton’s niece Susie Seagraves.

“Queens and presidents wives and movie stars — he was always around fancy places and fancy things,” Seagraves said. “He had a beautiful life.”

Walton and his partner Sam Micatto were known for their lavish gatherings by the pool on a property owned by the Micatto family. Story began learning about their world when he found Seagraves through a jagged journey to locate anyone who appears in the films, or their relatives. He and co-director Beth Prusaczyk have found several family members besides Seagraves but so far no living pool-party guests.

“We naively set out thinking, ‘Oh, these men might be in their mid-90s, they could still be alive,’ and that might be true,” Prusaczyk said. “But I don’t I don’t know if we’ll actually find them.”

Several people who aren’t in the home movies can testify to what it was like to be gay in mid-century St. Louis. Among those is Richard Eaton of Soulard, who grew up in the 1940s and ’50s. He dated women publicly and men, on the side.

For years, Eaton, 78, couldn’t imagine having a partner, much less a husband. He and John Durnell were among the four couples married by St. Louis Mayor Slay in 2014, before same-sex marriage was legal.

In the ’60s, Eaton remembers looking over his shoulder as he ventured to gay bars like Martin’s, near Union Station.

“There were a couple of places like the old speakeasies, Eaton said. “They would open the sliding door to see who was out there before they would open the door.”

But it wasn’t just going out to the bars; even the prospect of getting medical care was fraught with peril.

“I went to my new doctor, and one of the first questions he asked me, [was] have I ever had any sexual experiences with other men — and I lied,” Eaton said. “I didn’t know what he would do with the information.”

Eaton worried the doctor might call his employer, the Ladue School District, jeopardizing his job as guidance counselor at Ladue High School. In most of his 40 years there, Eaton led a double life. To keep track, he only went by “Richard” in his social circle.

“If somebody approached me and called me ‘Rich,’ I knew they were associated with the Ladue School District,” Eaton said. “And so that’s how I kept my identity separate.”

Something else that was kept separate: whites and people of color. Gay life, like all life in St. Louis, was segregated. The only African-Americans in the pool party footage are wearing white uniforms, serving food to the other men.

Such elaborate gatherings likely were denied to gay men who were not wealthy and white, Prusaczyk said.

“When I first watched the movie, I noticed that a number of the men have wedding rings on, and I thought … ‘These men have to go back to their lives where they can’t be as open and can’t be who they are,’” Prusaczyk said. “And that’s even more significant for African-American men, lower-class men.’”

Story agreed: “There is a sadness when I look at these films. And I think people who maybe were of less means had a harder time,” he said.

The other people missing from the pool party were women. But 81-year-old Betty Neeley of Webster Groves says the lesbians were having their own clandestine gatherings.

Neeley’s basement is a treasure trove of albums, posters and other memorabilia. A poster-size photo of Neeley in the early 1950s, with her trademark leather jacket and impressive set of wheels, once hung in a local lesbian bar.

“That’s a 1952 K Model Harley Davidson motorcycle, sportster.” Neeley said. “I’m outside of a bar on South Broadway, and I’m older than 16, because I’m on the street.”

Bars like the Kit Kat Club, 2802 California Ave., felt like the safest places to get together with friends.  

“People say, ‘Why didn’t you have a house party?’” Neeley said. “Oh, yeah, that’s great. Neighbors next door complain to your landlord you had 12 men-looking women in your house last night — next day I’d have to move.”

Story has come to believe that it was mostly Walton behind the camera, filming the pool party in 1945. Though the footage is rare, the parties were frequent, according to relatives of the men who attended.

Story was in his 20s when he purchased the films in 1994. He marvels at how he’s aged, but the men in the home movies are eternally young.

“These men are still in their 20s in the sun, swimming, like they always will,” Story said. “There’s a real sweet pain, and when you watch it, there’s a happiness but you can’t believe it’s so long ago, and you can’t touch it — it’s gone.”

The haunting images are confirmation that gay men did live and love at a time when no one dared to even speak of same-sex attraction. Story is amazed that the men allowed a camera to capture home movies in this sacred space.

“I just knew that it was gold, it was something special,” Story said.

Story thinks his documentary could make it big: It’s caught the interest of Hollywood executive Brian Graden, who, in 1995, backed a film that launched the TV show, “South Park.”  The project has “huge potential,” Graden said.

“It speaks to a wide array of people on a very deep level,” Graden said. “What are the chances someone would go to an estate sale and pick up these canisters of old footage? It’s almost like these men are trying to talk to us from beyond the grave.”

‘Go-Go Boy Interrupted’ Tries to Survive a Gay Pool Party – WATCH

Go-Go Boy Interrupted took a serious turn this week in episode 7 of the web series’ second season. The show from comedian Jimmy Fowlie looks at one of the most dreaded (or alternately, one of the most anticipated) events on the gay social calendar: the gay pool party.

As Fowlie’s character Danny explains, “When you’re living in L.A., people hate to commit to plans. They’re all quietly waiting for something better to come along. But if it’s a Saturday in West Hollywood, there’s one text that will get their attention: ‘House party, free booze.’”

The episode sees the return of Heather Morris (Glee), Scott Evans–

and the arrival of Danny’s love interest, played by Broadway alum Nick Adams.

10 great French gay films

Traditionally France has been seen as one of the most liberal countries in the world, and it boasts an enviable record on gay rights, despite the occasional rantings from Brigitte Bardot. But has this homofriendly attitude translated to its cinema?

We’ve kept the list to films that are easily available to watch in the UK, but honourable mention should go to The Ostrich Has Two Eggs (1957), a dated farce that at least has a sympathetic gay son, albeit one who never appears on screen, and Les Amitiés particulières (1964), set in a boys’ boarding school. Les Nuits fauves (1992) is one of the finest films to deal with the AIDS crisis, while the best work of the recently deceased Patrice Chéreau (especially 1983’s L’Homme blessé) narrowly missed the cut.

Each of the recommendations included here is available to view in the UK.

Where are the lesbians? Good question, as French cinema is particularly strong on sapphic cinema. Alas, pioneering films such as Club de femmes (1936) and Olivia (1950) aren’t easily available in the UK, but hopefully a list will appear in the future.

Un chant d’amour (1950)

French writer Jean Genet is one of the key figures of gay culture, whose novels (including Querelle of Brest), plays and essays have been championed by gay and straight readers alike. His only venture into film was never meant to be seen outside of a small clique of intellectuals, yet has since been restored and released on DVD. It’s a heady fantasy set in a men’s prison, where passion, longing and sexual desire infiltrate every cell. The cast consists of non-professionals Genet knew personally.

Its scenes of nudity and masturbation lead to numerous bans and cuts over the decades. Ironically, its most celebrated erotic sequences involves two clothed men who never touch, as one blows cigarettes smoke through the cell wall into the mouth of his neighbour. It had a major influence on later cinema depicting queer longing, notably Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s adaptation of Querelle (1982).

Orphée (1950)

Jean Cocteau is another major figure in LGBT history. While he was a renowned poet, artist and writer, his distinctive films are the most potent part of his legacy, particularly his gothic adaptation of the Beauty and the Beast fairytale, La Belle et la Bête (1946), and his lyrical modernisation of the Greek myth of Orpheus, set in contemporary Paris. While the romantic relationships are straight, the iconic imagery is unquestionably queer.

Cocteau casts his former lover Jean Marais as Orphée, who attracts the romantic interests of a woman in black, soon revealed to be Death. After she claims the life of his wife, he must brave the underworld to ensure her return. The camera’s lingering gaze over the handsome male actors, the theme of leaving a normal reality to transgress into a world beyond society’s norms, and, most famously, the leather-clad bikers who accompany death on her reaping missions, mark this out as a key queer work.

Les Demoiselles de Rochefort (1967)

File this one under ‘queer aesthetic’. In the most excessive of Jacques Demy’s films, he creates an infectiously cheery musical in which everyone has a ball. Catherine Deneuve and Françoise Dorléac are the damsels of the title, looking for love in the sunny seaside town of Rochefort. But will any of the attractive men on offer fall for their charms?

There’s nothing explicitly gay here, but any film that shoves George Chakiris into tight white trousers and decorates itself with lavish, lurid sets definitely has a queer eye. Its relentless good nature isn’t for Scrooges, but it’s a hard heart that can’t enjoy Gene Kelly’s surprise cameo, or the vision of Deneuve in elbow-length gloves, chain-smoking while removing a chicken from the oven (trust us, it’s amazing).

La Cage aux Folles (1978)

“Une comédie très gay” smirked the tagline for this box-office smash. This frantic farce, based on a play by Jean Poiret and remade as The Birdcage (1996) and a long-running musical, is the ne plus ultra of camp, and a clear inspiration on later drag comedies such as The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (1994). Renato, a nightclub owner, and Albin/Zaza, a flamboyant drag queen, play host to the former’s son, fiancée and her hugely conservative parents. The son wants Albin out of the picture for fear of offending his prospective in-laws, but Albin has other ideas.

It quickly became the most popular foreign-language film of all time at the American box office, and director Édouard Molinaro, the script and the marvellous costumes were all Oscar-nominated. Michel Serrault’s Zaza commands – and demands – the spotlight throughout, and the set pieces still fizz, notably the uproarious final soirée. Those seeking “straight-acting men, no time wasters” aren’t invited to this party. And they’re missing out.

Tenue de soirée (1986)

There’s something to offend everyone in Bertrand Blier’s riotous comedy. A long-suffering husband (Michel Blanc) and his vindictive wife (Miou-Miou) have a blazing row in a restaurant, when an oafish burglar (Gérard Depardieu) interrupts, hits the woman and becomes embroiled in their relationship, taking them on his stealing outings. He has seduction in mind but, to the growing horror of the husband, it’s he, rather than his wife, whom the burglar has in his sights. But persistence pays off, and political correctness is given another kicking.

Blier’s films often focus on two inadequate men uniting against women (Les ValseusesGet Out Your Handkerchiefs), and undertones of homosexuality have always lingered in the air. Here it’s made explicit, albeit in an occasionally homophobic context – the scenes where the husband is forced to don women’s clothing are particularly uncomfortable. Yet its gleeful offensiveness is catchy, and the energetic performances are top notch, particularly from Blanc, who won the best actor award at Cannes.

Une robe d’été (1996)

Before his acclaimed features (8 WomenPoticheIn the House), François Ozon was a celebrated short filmmaker whose distinctive work was the toast of film festivals worldwide. Une robe d’été is the most fun, a playful three-piece comedy set on a summer holiday by the beach. When Sébastien’s queeny performance to the song ‘Bang Bang’ irritates Luc, his boyfriend, to distraction, the latter heads to the beach for some gratuitous skinny dipping. There he encounters Lucia, and unexpected polysexual attraction enters the equation. But the summer dress of the title comes along to save the day.

Whereas Ozon’s later queer films were tinged with darker themes (Time to Leave), Une robe d’été is a magnum of fun champagne, where all are good at heart and everyone gets laid. The summer dress becomes an emblem of acceptance – butch or femme, masculin ou feminin, it’s a frothy lesson in sexual freedom and gender diversity.

Anatomy of Hell (2004)

Gay men hate and fear women, even more than straight men. At least, that’s the thesis of Anatomy of Hell, Catherine Breillat’s extraordinary and shocking exploration of society’s reaction to female sexuality. When a woman (Amira Casar) slashes her wrists in a gay bar, she challenges her homosexual rescuer (Italian porn star Rocco Siffredi) to spend four nights with her to “watch me where I’m unwatchable”. Graphic sex acts, rake handle insertion and menstrual blood quaffing ensue. Forget the cliché of the gay best friend, this guy can’t stand women.

It’s easy to snigger at the portentous dialogue (“The elasticity of a boy’s anus doesn’t lie about the tightness of the lower intestines”) and the assumption of misogyny may rile male viewers, gay or straight. But it confirms Breillat as one of the most genuinely provocative filmmakers around today. It goes even further than her previous essays on female sexuality (the graphic RomanceÀ ma soeur!) to create a real one-of-a-kind viewing experience.

Le Clan (2004)

This little-discussed film deserves far more attention. Directed by Gaël Morel (Our Paradise) and co-written by Christophe HonoréMa mèreMan at Bath), it tells the story of three brothers. The first segment focuses on the middle brother, a drop-out in trouble with some thugs, the second on the ex-con trying to go straight, and the third on the youngest sibling, who starts a relationship with another man. Only the final third is explicitly gay, but homoerotic tensions simmer throughout.

Most reviews focus on the showy performance of the frequently naked Nicolas Cazalé as the rebel without much of a cause in the first chapter, but the emotional heart lies in the final third, as Morel explores the complexities of the vulnerable gay youth who must choose between fraternal loyalty and a chance at romantic happiness. The last scene, backed by weeping violins, is achingly moving.

Les Invisibles (2013)

Sébastien Lifshitz is best known for his gay features (Going South), but his finest work to date is this revealing documentary in which gay men and women in their 60s and 70s talk about their lives and loves. While some tell stories of repression, family estrangement and catholic guilt, all are out, proud and inspiring, from the infectiously enthusiastic lesbian activist to the octogenarian bisexual shepherd unrepentantly recalling his many sexual conquests. Stirring archive footage from the 1960s shows pro-gay demonstrations – interestingly, many of the straight onlookers support the liberal marches.

These witty, charismatic and courageous people paved the way for the freedom gay men and women enjoy today. Their disarming frankness creates an invaluable oral history, while their tales of oppression show how far gay rights have progressed over the decades.

Film programmers discuss some of their favourite LGBT love scenes, including The Color Purple, A Very Natural Thing and Something Must Break.

Same-sex marriage in Brazil has been legal since 16 May 2013, following a National Justice Council decision, which orders notaries of every state to perform same-sex marriages.

Same-sex unions had already been legally recognized since 2004. Following a ruling of the Supreme Court of Brazil, so-called stable unions (Portuguese: união estável) had been available for same-sex couples since May 2011. These unions were granted most of the rights of marriages, including adoption, welfare benefits, pension, inheritance tax, income tax, social security, health benefits, immigration, joint property ownership, hospital and prison visitation, IVF and surrogacy. This decision paved the way for future legislation on same-sex matrimonial rights. Before the nationwide legislation, the states of Alagoas, Bahia, Ceará, Espírito Santo, the Federal District, Mato Grosso do Sul, Paraíba, Paraná, Piauí, Rondônia, Santa Catarina, São Paulo, and Sergipe, as well as the city of Santa Rita do Sapucaí (MG), had already allowed same-sex marriages and several unions were converted into full marriages by state judges. In Rio de Janeiro, same-sex couples could also marry but only if local judges agreed with their request.

According to Ibope, support for same-sex couples having the same rights as different-sex couples in Brazil in 2017 was 49%, with 38% opposing. Support was higher among women, young people, people with higher educational levels and Brazilians living in the South region of the country.

The 2017 AmericasBarometer showed that 52% of Brazilians supported same-sex marriage.

Same-sex marriage (also known as gay marriage or marriage equality) is the marriage of two persons of the same sex or gender, entered into in a civil or religious ceremony.

As of 2 April 2019, same-sex marriage is legally performed and recognized (nationwide or in some jurisdictions) in:

Because these pictures of the TOWIE boys partying in their budgie smugglers might make you feel a little ill.

The whole cast of the ITV2 reality TV show are currently living it up in Marbs, where they’re filming their annual summer special.

So far, it’s been the girls grabbing the headlines, with Ferne McCann, Lydia Bright and Chloe Sims all parading around the pool in their gravity defying swimsuits.

But, this afternoon, it was the boys’ chance to, err, shine as they were filmed partying at a Gay pride-themed bash at the Plaza beach club.

Bobby Norris and boyfriend Harry Derbidge minimised the tan-lines by donning what appeared to be socks attached to garters to hold them up. There really are no words.

The boys were both clearly enjoying the attention as they strutted around in their teeny-tiny posing pouches.

We have some practical questions though, like where do you keep your hotel room key and what about lose change? On second thoughts, we’d rather not know.

Arg, meanwhile, was on the beach busy recreating the moment in Casino Royale where Daniel Craig’s 007 emerged from the shimmering sea in his tight blue trunks. Sort of.

Let’s just say the trunks were slightly tighter than they were on Daniel. And Arg also looked to be suffering from a little bit of sunburn.

He was left even more red-faced after ‘mate’ Tom Pearce thought it would fun to pull his shorts down in front of the cameras.
