Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

"Well, I'm not sure that Brokeback Mountain (2005) and Capote (2005) really qualify as gay films. "Brokeback Mountain" is about two straight men who happen to have a gay affair, and "Capote" is about an author, who happens to be gay, going to any lengths to get his story".


Was nominated for Broadway's 1980 Tony Award as author of Best Play nominee "Bent." See more »
