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.

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.)

strictly2Twitter has declared Johannes Radebe the winner of this year’s Strictly Come Dancing, after he became the first male pro in the show’s history to dance in high heels.
Strictly fans were bowled over by a recent opening number, in which Radebe performed a voguing-inspired routine backed by two male dancers.
All three wore black PVC heels and waved handfans that read “pose”, “werk” and “slay” as they high-kicked, sashayed and death dropped across the ballroom floor.
Twitter momentarily turned into a Johannes Radebe fan forum as viewers praised the South African dancer for “shutting down toxic masculinity" in the show.
One fan suggested that Radebe’s voguing skills were enough to land him a place on ballroom drama Pose.
Catherine Tyldseley, the former Coronation Street actor who is Radebe’s partner on Strictly, paid her own tribute on Instagram.
Even the official account for Strictly Come Dancing – a show which, in 2019, is yet to acknowledge the fact that two men or two women might like to dance together – appeared to be getting its absolute life.
Radebe thanked fans for their support, and said that he “cannot deal” with the outpouring of love.
The 31-year-old has wowed fans since joining Strictly in 2018, and was this year allocated a celebrity partner for the first time.

“Everyone is bisexual “ Gore VidalGoreVidal
10-03-1925 – 07-31-2012
American writer Gore Vidal was born in West Point, New York on 10 March 1925. He was an intellectual known for his wit and wrote novels, essays, screenplays, and stage plays. As a political commentator and essayist, Vidal’s principal subject was the history of the United States and its society. Vidal’s public debates on sex, politics, and religion with other intellectuals and writers, occasionally became continual quarrels, as with William F. Buckley Jr. and Norman Mailer.
Vidal believed that men and women are pansexual. He rejected the adjectives “homosexual” and “heterosexual” when used as nouns, as inherently false terms used to classify and control people in society. In his book “Myra Breckinridge”, published in 1968, he explores the mutability of gender-role and sexual-orientation as being social constructs established by social mores.
In 1950, Gore Vidal met Howard Austen, and their relationship lasted until Austen’s death 53 years later. Vidal said that he refused to call himself “gay”, because he was not an adjective, because “to be categorized is, simply, to be enslaved. I have never thought of myself as a victim… I’ve said —a thousand times?—in print and on TV, that everyone is bisexual.”

Gay fans of the very popular series Downton Abbey should be pleased when the movie hits our screens.
DowntonAbbeyCreator and screenwriter Julian Fellowes gives ample screen time to the story line surrounding Thomas Barrow, the valet turned butler in the film, which takes place in 1927. This will be of particular interest to gay fans as the storyline surrounding valet-turned-butler Thomas Barrow (Rob James-Collier) whose dark journey during the series saw him take some wrenching steps to try and “cure” himself of homosexuality.
Without giving away any of the major plot points, Said James-Collier: “You see Thomas discover a whole new world, and that is closer to who he is and there is a joy there, but then that joy may get taken away but it’s very emotional, Thomas’s journey. It also hammers home what it was like to be a gay man in those times, it was horrific and it’s brought back and it just shows how different it was. It must have been so hard for him and that is why the people warm to him and root for Thomas now, and they certainly will in the film if you watch it.”
James-Collier said he was grateful for the opportunity to expand on his character’s story.
