Gus-Kenworthy

The Olympics may be over, but Gus Kenworthy is still looking to score. The 26-year-old freestyle skier took a stab at writing his very own Craigslist “Missed Connections” personal ad aimed at at Ricky Martin and his husband Jwan Yosef this week. Long story short: Gus and his boyfriend, Matt Wilkas, ran into the couple at the Oscars, where they had a lovely conversation. The dialogue was cut short, however, and now the boys are hoping to reconnect with the power...

While Call Me By Your Name didn’t receive a heaping of awards at the 90th Annual Academy Awards last night, it did make history with one award it did receive. Out screenwriter James Ivory won the award for Best Adapted Screenplay for his work adapting the script from the original 2007 novel by André Aciman. During his acceptance speech, Ivory got on stage, while wearing a shirt with Timothée Chalamet’s face drawn on it, and thanked the two man cast members....

The 90th Annual Academy Awards will take place live tomorrow night on ABC. Some of the most iconic and historic names have taken home at least one of these golden statuettes, including Robert DeNiro, Meryl Streep, Bette Davis, Joan Crawford and so on and so forth. The show also has a major history with the LGBTQ community, as there have been several actors, actresses, producers and behind the scenes professionals who have won Oscar gold over the past ninety years....

From God's Own Country to Call Me By Your Name, is this year's crop of queer films the strongest yet? 10 Battle of the Sexes Movies featuring prominent LGBTI characters are usually, for better or for worse, made on a shoestring budget. But not sports drama Battle of the Sexes, funded to the tune of a cool $25m (£18.5m, €21.3m). Currently making its impact worldwide (grossing $17.5m thus far), it’s no doubt benefiting from the star power of Emma Stone, winner of...
Love-Simon

The first trailer is out for the upcoming film Love, Simon. We reported on this film earlier as being one to watch. No, this isn’t the next gay Oscar bait film that’s been praised at indie film award ceremonies. In fact, the reason this film is on everyone’s radar is because it’s the total opposite of that. Love, Simon is potentially the first gay film to get public attention because of it being backed by a large distributing company. This isn’t...

"This is for those that feel like the others, the misfits." Ashton Sanders and Jharrel Jerome won the award for “Best Kiss” at the MTV Movie & TV Awards on Sunday night for their romantic beachside moment in the Oscar-winning Moonlight. “This award is bigger than Jharrel and I,” Sanders said during his acceptance speech. “This represents more than a kiss. This is for those that feel like the others, the misfits. This represents us.” “I think it’s safe to say that...
Moonlight-Oscars

Moonlight has become the first ever LGBT+ themed film to win a Best Picture award at the Oscars. The breakout hit, which tells the story of a black gay man’s coming of age, has received immense critical acclaim and was pitted by many against the high-budget, glossy musical La La Land for Best Picture. Barry Jenkins, who directed Moonlight, said during his acceptance speech: “Even in my dreams this could not be true. But to hell with dreams! I’m done with...

In Hollywood, just like in any other place, there are gay people, gay actors, lesbian actresses, bisexual/transgender, etc. It's just normal if you ask me. The difference is that they have access to a large audience, they have fans and they are popular worldwide. This year, another gay artist won an Oscar, and he's included on our list. Sam Smith, openly gay, won the Best Original Song award with "Writing's on the Wall," for the James Bond movie, "Spectre." But the artist did not...

Smith's Bond theme 'Writing's On The Wall' was named Best Original Song. Sam Smith has dedicated his Oscar win tonight (February 28) to the LGBT community. Smith and his co-writer Jimmy Napes took home the Best Original Song prize for 'Writing's On The Wall', which they wrote for the soundtrack to 24th Bond film Spectre. "I read an article that said no openly gay man had ever won an Oscar, and if this is the case, I want to dedicate this to...
