It's official -- and we've got the pic to prove it!Bisexual 19 year-old British Olympic diver Tom Daley was photographed for the first time (via Just Jared) with his boyfriend – director Dustin Lance Black – on Wednesday.Daley made waves earlier this month when he announced he was dating a man, but still "fancies" women as well. The couple was seen walking out of the University of Houston diving center where Tom is training for the 2016 Olympic Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro. Dustin, a 39 year-old Oscar-winning screenwriter for "Milk," wore a Team Great Britain jacket to support his boo. Tom stopped by "The Jonathan Ross Show" last weekend, and had this to say about his new romance: “[Dustin] makes me feel safe and happy, right now I couldn’t be happier… I’ve never had it before where I love someone and they love me just as much.” Click the ‘Launch »

This is the third article in a three-part series.
Though many Academy Award Best Picture nominees contain—or are predominantly about—sex and relationships, very few have been about sex issues in law and politics. In recent years there has been Milk (2008), the biopic of Harvey Milk, a California politician and gay rights activist, and otherwise not much else. Even in the late 1980s and early 1990s, when the AIDS epidemic was a hot button issue, few films of this genre made it to the Best Picture ticket (remember, Philadelphia was snubbed from the category in 1993). Sexual issues topics, though, have been more popular within the documentary medium: there was Common Threads: Stories from the Quilt (1989), which won for Best Documentary, and which was the first AIDS-related film to win an Oscar, the The Times of Harvey Milk (1984), which also won Best Documentary, and How to Survive a Plague »

Never let the truth get in the way of a good script! That seems to be the ever-growing mantra in recent historically-inspired TV programming, and Lifetime's new miniseries Bonnie & Clyde, which premiered tonight, appears to push that notion even further. In this version, starring Emile Hirsch (Milk) and Holliday Grainger (The Borgias), Clyde suffers from Donnie Darko-style visions of his bloody future, and just wants to settle down, and it's Bonnie who persuades him to embark on an epic crime spree. Poor Clyde just couldn't get out from under her clutches. Many critics are appalled, particularly because the four-part docudrama is also being televised on the History Channel (and A&E), but »
A&E Networks will debut the first part of its version of “Bonnie & Clyde” on Sunday at 9/8c across three of its networks: A&E, Lifetime and History. The two-part miniseries starring “Borgias” actress Holliday Grainger and “Milk’s” Emile Hirsch in the title roles follows the notorious criminals as their lives intersect and then together go on a crime spree that captures America’s fascination in the 1930s. The movie pays special attention to Bonnie and the role she plays in the duo, which may be larger than most accounts of the time gave her credit for. Also read: »

With his first child, a couple of indie films ("Prince Avalanche," "The Motel Life," "Twice Born"), a miniseries (A&E's "Bonnie and Clyde") and a meaty high-profile role on the horizon (John Belushi in the as-of-yet untitled biopic), 2013 is chalking up to be a pretty good year for Emile Hirsch. Over the course of his film career (his debut being in "The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys" in 2002), Hirsch has frequently varied his acting choices. Being led simply by the quality of the material rather than trying to configure a trajectory or formulate a brand, Hirsch has run the gamut of being a young actor in (and outside of) Hollywood: nominated for a MTV Music Award For Best Kiss (with Elisha Cuthbert in "The Girl Next Door"), portraying real-life characters to varying critical acclaim ("Lords of Dogtown," "Alpha Dog," "Into The Wild," "Milk"), taking on an iconic cartoon character in »

Producers are touting “The Fifth Beatle” as the first-ever film about the Beatles to secure music rights to the Lennon/McCartney music catalog.
“From the moment I read Vivek’s graphic novel, I knew I wanted to be the person to bring Brian’s story to the bigscreen,” Reed said. “I’m a lifelong Beatles fan, obviously, but it’s Brian’s fascinating life that really blew me away and drew me to this project. He’s the ultimate outsider who, against all odds, »

The British Olympic diver is reportedly dating Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, who’s 20 years older than he is, after coming out — and revealing that he’s in a ‘happy’ relationship! Read on for more details.
Tom Daley, 19, surprised his fans when he came out in a YouTube video on Dec. 2 and said that he was dating a man, who’s reportedly the Oscar-winning Milk screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, 39. Tom is “besotted” with him, according to The Sun, and they’re even planning a future together!
Tom has been dating Dustin, who won an Academy Award in 2008 for his screenplay for Milk, the film about gay rights activist Harvey Milk, according to E! News. The two were seen together for the first time in October getting coffee, although they reportedly met in London over the summer.

For his first boyfriend ever, Tom Daley has struck gold -- Oscar gold! As rumored, the British Olympic diver, 19, is indeed dating Dustin Lance Black, the 39-year-old screenwriter and Lgbt activist, multiple sources confirm to Us Weekly. (The coupling was first reported by E! News.) "It's true and they're very happy," a source close to the bronze medalist tells Us Weekly. Daley and the Oscar-winning Milk scribe have "been together since summer," the source adds. Daley came out as bisexual to fans via his YouTube page on [...] »
Daley, 19, and Black, the Academy Award winning Milk screenwriter, have reportedly been dating for several months, according to E! News. Back in October, Black, 39, and Daley were caught on camera leaving The Coffee Bean in Hollywood. Daley’s rendezvous with the openly gay and passionate Lgbt activist failed to inspire widespread speculation about his sexuality, as he had recently denied being gay to The Mirror.
The Olympic diver came out earlier this week in a five-minute YouTube video that highlighted his recent relationship.
Got something I need to say...not been an easy decision to make, hope you can support me! :) http://t.co/oOrDEiChGd

Olympic diver Tom Daley surprised fans yesterday when he came out and told the world via YouTube that he was dating a man. Now, everyone is wondering who the lucky guy is. Well, we have the answer...and he's an Oscar winner! Sources exclusively tell me that Daley has been dating Dustin Lance Black, the 39-year-old writer who won an Academy Award for his screenplay for Milk, the 2008 biopic about gay rights activist legend Harvey Milk (Sean Penn also won an Oscar for playing Milk in the flick). Back in October, Daley and Black were spotted together for the first time grabbing a snack at The Coffee Bean in Hollywood. Yesterday, Daley posted a touching YouTube video in which he came out as dating »
Josh Brolin may have an Oscar nomination under his belt for Milk. He may have shared screen time with Denzel Washington, Tommy Lee Jones, Sean Penn, Kate Winslet, Ewan McGregor, and Jeff Bridges. He’s appeared in not one, but two Woody Allen movies (You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, Melinda and Melinda) and even played President George W. Bush in W. No matter all he achieves in his cinematic career, Josh Brolin will most often – and most fondly – be remembered for his very first screen role.
In 1985, a 17-year-old Brolin who was then only known as the son of actor James Brolin, was cast in a family adventure film, The Goonies. His role as older brother Brandon “Brand” Walsh in the classic and much-loved film served as a career launching pad for Brolin, who stars in this week’s Oldboy and in the upcoming Labor Day.

The 34-year-old renaissance man has an undergraduate degree from UCLA, among other diplomas. He's been nominated for an Academy Award, and even (sort of) hosted the awards in 2011. Professionally, Franco has acted in a long list of movies, directed several others, and even written roughly a dozen plus screenplays.
Starting today, November 27, multi-hyphenate Franco can be seen facing off against Jason Statham in the Sylvester Stallone-penned action flick "Homefront." Franco plays Gator, a small-town meth kingpin who butts heads with Statham, a former DEA agent who shows up in Franco's town to finally settle down with his family.
Do you already know more about Franco than you'd care to? Maybe. Do you know everything there is to know about the man? Unlikely. From his middle-school shoplifting days to that time he shadowed a male prostitute, »

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, »

San Francisco board supervisor, fearless gay rights activist, and all-around inspiration Harvey Milk is still a heroic figure 35 years after his murder at the age of 48. When he and San Francisco mayor George Moscone were murdered by Dan White, who was only convicted of manslaughter, outrage and grief rippled through the city. In 1984, the Academy Award-winning documentary The Times of Harvey Milk effectively chronicled Milk’s life and death, and because of that film we have indispensable insight into the mind of one of our pioneering gay rights leaders.
And yet, there are still facts about Milk that we either forget or overlook. Here are 10 facts about the man you might not know — some are funny, some are pop cultural, and some, particularly the one about Dan White, are unsettling. But 35 years on, it’s a joy to think about Harvey Milk, whose life was a terrific source of hope, »

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.”
