‘Supernova’: Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci play a couple in upcoming film

If you’ve been waiting to watch Oscar winner Colin Firth in a relationship with The Devil Wears Prada‘s Stanley Tucci as they embark on a cross-country road trip, your opportunity is here.Supernova
The pair play a committed gay couple in an upcoming film written and directed by Eastenders star Harry Macqueen.
Supernova follows Sam and Tusker celebrating two decades of love with a road trip across the UK to visit moments of the past as Tusker struggles with an early-onset dementia diagnosis. Firth, known for his critically acclaimed acting as King George VI in The King’s Speech, will star as Sam. Tucci, who has played several gay characters or characters revered by the LGBTQ community, is playing his partner Tusker. They embark on the road to reconvene with familiar faces and places as Tusker’s condition begins to worsen.
Speaking to Variety, Macqueen says his second feature film is a deeply romantic, modern love story.
“It follows two people who are bound together by their love for each other but being pushed apart by the situation they find themselves in,” Macqueen said. “Since Tusker was diagnosed with early-onset dementia two years ago, their time together is the most important thing they have.”
“It is an intimate, naked portrayal of a relationship facing a fissure that threatens to cut it to its very core.”
One commentator said, “We could comment on two heterosexual actors once again taking gay roles, but we’re willing to forgive as long as there’s at least one shirtless kissing scene.

Argentina’s new president’s son is an amazing drag queen

Alberto Fernàndez, the newly chosen president-elect of Argentina, has a 24-year-old sexually-fluid son named Estanislao who moonlights as a well-known drag queen and cosplayer with the name DYHZY.Presson
DYHZY has over 182,000 Instagram followers and 123,900 Twitter followers and has become an unlikely messenger of peace and queer-acceptance in South America, especially after recent criticism from the son of Brazil’s anti-LGBTQ president.
Estanislao wasn’t always thrilled about his dad running for president. In fact, he reportedly deleted his Instagram account for a short while after his father announced his candidacy.
In a June 2019 interview, Estanislao said, “Now it’s happening to me that they know me in places. The other day I got to work and a guy told me, ‘You are the son of my hope.’ And there I thought ‘How cool!’ I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for my father, but it also doesn’t take away the possibility of growing on my own merits.”
To his father’s credit Alberto said of his son, “I have pride in my son, how can I not be proud? My son is a rights activist in that community. I would worry if my son was a criminal, but he is a great man.”

Surviving holiday flings

Most of us look forward to the end-of-year holiday season as a time to relax, recover and let loose. That often means plenty of drinking, partying and having fun. And, yes, that usually also includes grabbing every opportunity for sexual release.

A TripAdvisor Romance On Holiday Survey found that over half (58%) of travellers have enjoyed a holiday fling at some point. MrGayW3

Whether we’re away on holiday or just taking a break at home, once we’re removed from the stresses of work and everyday life our hormones tend to go wild and our sex drives often seem to be permanently at full throttle.

If you’re in a relationship, that could result in more fun, more often, under the sheets (or the stars) with your partner – which will only help strengthen the bond between you. Some may even choose to bring another person, or more, into the bed when on holiday.

Whatever the case - whether involved or single, whether monogamous or not - when we’re in a different town or country our inhibitions are quickly left behind. We’re more likely to do things we don’t usually do at home – and that could mean hooking up; whenever and however.

During the silly season every attractive guy can seem like another possible fling or holiday conquest. (And often, it’s with guys we’d normally never consider “our type” or ever take home to meet the family.)

Divorce becomes a traditional family value

Former governor of Alaska Sarah Palin, who has long opposed same-sex marriage on the basis that marriage should be “between one man and one woman”, and is known for her support of “traditional” family values, is now getting a divorce.sarah palin
While campaigning to be Alaska’s governor she supported amending the state’s constitution to ban same-sex marriage and continued to fight after it was legalised, pushing for continued support of the Defence of Marriage Act. She said: “I have always believed that marriage is between one man and one woman. Like the majority of Americans, I support the Defence of Marriage Act and find it appalling that the Obama administration decided not to defend this federal law.”
Palin became known for her support of “traditional” family values when she became John McCain’s running mate in the 2008 presidential race. When it came to same-sex marriage she voiced even stronger opposition than McCain did, saying that she would support a constitutional amendment to ban marriage equality, rather than the state-by-state ruling suggested by McCain.
