According to E!, the identity of Tom Daley’s mystery boyfriend is Oscar winner Dustin Lance Black, who he was photographed with several months ago. Not that my opinion matters in the least, but I can work with this. They’d make a good looking pair, and there’s a lot of depth and history in Dlb to guide Daley as he comes out into the public eye as being in a same-sex relationship.
Which states in the U.S. swear the most? Well, according to a new study of thousands of customer service calls that were recorded and analyzed, Ohio takes the f*cking cake on that award, while Washington is the most reserved.

The team behind “Milk” — director Gus Van Sant, writer Dustin Lance Black and producer Bruce Cohen — will be traveling to St. Petersburg, Russia, for a closing night screening Nov. 30 of the 2008 film at the Lgbt-themed festival Bok o Bok (Side by Side), according to a report in U.K. newspaper the Guardian.
Van Sant will lead a discussion about the film at the festival.
Earlier this year, the festival was targeted by Russia’s fierce anti-gay campaigners, and was fined 400,000 rubles ($12,000) and named a “foreign agent” by authorities, citing suspicions that the festival received money from overseas sources. The Kremlin ruled this year that all non-government organizations must register if they receive funding from overseas. Festival organizers denied the allegations. The festival has also been under scrutiny because of the Russian law that bans “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations to minors.”
But in a victory for the fest and gay-rights advocates, »

Lesbian drama release a bold move given anti-gay legislation in Russia.
Stacie Passon’s lesbian drama Concussion is among four titles acquired by Russian distributor Cinema Without Borders (Kino bez Granits) at this year’s Afm for theatrical release in Russian cinemas in 2014.
The other titles acquired were:
According to Cinema Without Borders, the latter two titles are expected to be given a wide release.
The acquisition of the 2013 Teddy Award winner Concussion would seem particularly brave given the current anti-gay mood in Russia since the introduction of legislation earlier this year banning “propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations among minors.”

Moscow – Milk director Gus Van Sant, producer Bruce Cohen and writer Dustin Lance Black say they are determined to attend Russia's St. Petersburg’s Lgbt festival Bok o Bok (Side by Side) for the screening of the film and a Q&A session despite incidents and false bomb alarms that have marred the event since its start last week. Among them was what organizers called a "provocation aimed at disrupting the festival" during a screening of Abdellatif Kechiche's Blue Is the Warmest Color. “Our hope in screening the 2009 Academy Award winning film Milk -- about the late civil rights leader Harvey

Dustin Lance Black, Gus Van Sant and Bruce Cohen will attend the St. Petersburg Side By Side Lgbt Film Festival for the screening of Milk, despite bomb threats and the country’s abysmal record on gay rights. Cohen says “Our hope in screening the 2009 Academy Award winning film Milk — about the late civil rights leader, Harvey Milk — is to encourage respectful conversations that might create deeper understanding. Cinema has that power. For this reason, we would like to bring our film to your country and participate in the meaningful dialogue we feel certain this screening will create between the people of our great nations.”

Milk director in show of support for Bok o Bok festival in St Petersburg which has been targeted in Russia's anti-gay crackdown
• Russian Lgbt festival wins appeal against 'foreign agent' ruling
• Ukraine film festival targeted by anti-lgbt protesters
Milk director Gus van Sant is to travel to St Petersburg to attend the Lgbt-themed Bok o Bok (Side by Side) film festival which only recently escaped shutdown after being targeted by Russia's anti-gay campaigners.
The veteran director is due to attend a screening on 30 November of Milk, the biopic of the gay San Francisco political official who was murdered in 1978. The film's producer Bruce Cohen and Oscar winning scriptwriter Dustin Lance Black will also be present and take part in a discussion after the film.
Oscar has a way of falling in love with first-time scripters, including Chris Terrio (“Argo”), Michael Arndt (“Little Miss Sunshine”), Diablo Cody (“Juno”), Dustin Lance Black (“Milk”), Mark Boal (“The Hurt Locker”) and Geoffrey Fletcher (“Precious”).
“I wasn’t sitting looking at a computer writing,” Gordon-Levitt says. “I was up on my feet acting. When I would get the scene to a version that I like then I would go back to the keyboard and write it down. My writing process was not dissimilar from my acting process. I was basically doing the same thing except a few steps earlier.”

Writer Dustin Lance Black, director Gus Van Sant and producer Bruce Cohen will present their Lgbt rights biopic "Milk" at the Side by Side Lgbt Film Festival in Saint Petersburg, Russia. This news comes after a very challenging year for both Lgbt people in Russia and Side by Side itself. Since 2007, Side By Side (or Bok o Bok in Russian) has been working against all odds to bring Lgbt cinema, education and community to Russians. Back in June, the festival was faced with new challenges, including the law concerning NGOs and their status of being a ‘foreign agent.' In relation to this piece of legislation, Side by Side has been prosecuted under a law concerning NGOs and their status of being a ‘foreign agent' and was found guilty -- both as an organization and de Guerre, its director.

Lots of stuff can you qualify to be a potential gay icon. Are you a funny lady? A kickass songwriter who has officiated at gay weddings? An astounding actor who never messes up? These are traditional conduits for gay iconography, if the posters in my living room are any indication.
Today — in honor of Halloween week — I’m nominating one of the great icons of All Hallow’s Eve, the onetime scream queen and all-the-time fantastic-looking Jamie Lee Curtis. Why? While I’ve loved many of her films and enjoy reading her on the Huffington Post, my main reason is pretty simple: I think she’s cool as hell. Her interviews are always frank and sincere, she’s extremely charitable, she writes children’s books that are actually great, and you can’t compare her to anyone else. In that way she’s like Cher or Kathy Griffin, but unassuming in her casual honesty. »

Here at TheBacklot.com we spend a lot of time celebrating gay and bi men in the spotlight: actors, singers, dancers, sportsmen, and personalities are splashed across our pages like so much red paint at an all-fur fashion show. While we will never tire of the Neil Patrick Harrises and Chris Colfers of the world, we thought it was high time we paid due credit to some of the more unsung gay heroes: the guys behind the cameras of some of television’s best shows. In that light, we are proud to unveil TheBacklot 40, our celebration of 40 of the hardest-working and most influential out men working behind the scenes in TV.
These are the men who create and run some of our favorite shows, have written some of our most beloved gay characters, and have shepherded gay-inclusive stories to screen long before it was fashionable. Some will be familiar, but »
