Ewan McGregor spoke to Out magazine about how much he enjoys nudity and pushing the limits of sexuality on screen:

“I always try not to limit myself in all respects. Sexuality is just one of them. I could understand saying ‘I would never do gratuitous nudity.’ Wait. No. I probably would. I’d probably be quite happy to. I remember getting a kind of rush out of [going full frontal] that first time, a slight feeling of power about it, you know?”

McGregor recently told the L.A. Times that he "quite liked kissing Jim Carrey" in the film. He also recently dashed suggestions that it's not a gay movie saying,

"Y'know there was a lot of talk about it at Sundance about it not being a 'gay movie.' Well, I think it is a gay movie. Of course it's a gay movie. It's about two gay men or three gay men, y'know? And a man whose relationships are with men. And although the humor isn't born out of the fact it's about gay men, it's a funny movie. Y'know, I never wanted to be worried about the fact that it's a gay story because it is. I hope they locked it that way. You can imagine that the people who deal with such things going, 'Oh, let's make sure people don't think it's a gay movie and y'know that won't sell.' But of course it is, and it's a good film."

Tea Time with Yves Saint Laurent

One day in the late 60s Yves Saint Laurent invited Betty & Francois Catroux over to his house, and this ocassion was captured on the photograph. A photo that's not only proof of the great friendship and inspiration shared between YSL and Betty Catroux (Ive learned she was one of his muses), but also a photo that shows 4 different styles.

We can see Yves Saint Laurent wearing a paisley shirt with matching scarf. Next to him we have Betty wearing a straight and long jacket with bellbottoms. Behind them we have one gentleman wearing a suit, and Francois Catroux with a cardigan and unbuttoned smart shirt.

Drew Barrymore & Wanda Sykes To Be Honored By GLAAD

Newly Golden Globe winner/producer and one of my favorite actresses, Drew Barrymore will be honored with the Vanguard Award by the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) at the 21st Annual GLAAD Media Awards on April 17.

The Vanguard Award is presented to media professionals who have increased the visibility and understanding of the LGBT community. Drew recently marched with thousands of marriage equality advocates in the streets of West Hollywood when the California Supreme Court upheld Proposition 8, which eliminated marriage for gay and lesbian couples.

“I was born, bred and raised among diversity, it has defined me and made me the person I am today,” Drew said. “I’m honored and humbled to be receiving this award.”

The Emmy Award-winning actress and comedian Wanda Sykes will also receive the Stephen F. Kolzak Award for being an openly LGBT media professional who has made a significant difference in promoting equal rights for our community.

Elton John Covers 'Parade' This Weekend

Elton John covers Parade magazine and speaks about how his life’s changed since he became ELTON JOHN, some 40 years ago!

On Christianity: “I think Jesus was a compassionate, super-intelligent gay man who understood human problems. On the cross, he forgave the people who crucified him. Jesus wanted us to be loving and forgiving. I don’t know what makes people so cruel. Try being a gay woman in the Middle East — you’re as good as dead.”

Why fame has lost its appeal:
"Princess Diana, Gianni Versace, John Lennon, Michael Jackson, all dead. Two of them shot outside their houses. None of this would have happened if they hadn't been famous. Fame attracts lunatics. I never had a bodyguard, ever, until Gianni died. I don't like celebrity anymore."

On connecting with partner David Furnish: “I was attracted to David immediately. He was very well dressed, very shy. The next night we had dinner. After it, we consummated our relationship. We fell in love very quickly.”

He'll never stop helping:
"I set up my foundation because I wanted to make amends for the years I was a drug addict. People with HIV are still stigmatized. The infection rates are going up. People are dying. The political response is appalling. The sadness of it, the waste."

Keeping the love alive:
"Every Saturday for 16 years, we've sent each other a card, no matter where we are in the world, to say how much we love each other."

Communication is key:
"We've never been jealous. We talk about the sexual side of things, things that normally would have frightened me before."
