If you still have an affinity for books, there can be few more choice summer reads than Edmund White's 2005 autobiography, My Lives. Divided into nonlinear sections devoted to his relationships with his parents, his hustlers, and his female entanglements, there's also a chapter entitled "My Europe." Herein White notes how while in the Paris of the 1980s, he became aware that petite green beans are tastier than their larger cousins. He also recounts how the social theorist Michel Foucault, a pal of his, noted that while "'gay philosophy' and 'gay paintings' were meaningless notions...writing gay fiction was legitimate since it enabled us to imagine how gay men should live together."
Foucault apparently "felt that relationships between gay men were tenuous, undefined, still to be invented, and that gay fiction was the place where a vision of association could be worked out in concrete detail."
The same could be said of Lgbt cinema, »

Fox may have canceled Chris Lowell‘s Enlisted for the 2014-2015 TV lineup, but they still intend to allow it to fun the full season. They just announced that rest of the season is set to air this summer. The comedy has a few episodes left that Fox will start airing on June 1st, with one episode per week. We are not sure how many are left, but fans of the failed show should be happy to know that it will air all episodes that they ordered for the season.
It is a shame that it didn’t get renewed. I think it had room to become a success, but perhaps it would have worked better as a drama. Think of Army Wives, which was a drama that was successful. At this point I think comedies about the armed forces is not something we are ready for right now. Maybe »
