Game of Thrones } A Gay Man in Westeros

Renly and Brienne
Gethin Anthony wasn’t given the easiest of roles to play on Game of Thrones: a gay man in Westeros. The world of the show is far from the most accepting place in fiction. Women, homosexuals, bastards, and other groups are all put at a disadvantage, and King Renly Baratheon had to step carefully.
We’ve complained before about the portrayal of homosexuality on Game of Thrones, although usually in terms of how Loras Tyrell was reduced to a caricature of the man we knew in the books. But when it comes to Renly, there was something of a beauty to the way the “love that dares not speak its name” in Westeros was allowed to flourish on screen. In a recent interview, Anthony said that this was a deliberate choice.
Speaking to Attitude, Anthony reflects on his time with the show and says that he wanted to make sure there were positive portrayals of relationships in the brutish world of Westeros, where marriages are more like alliances, and many love affairs are unhealthy.

Westeros is a very scary world, with all the politics and violence going on, so it was nice to play an affectionate gay couple within that world. We were very passionate about it being a positive thing. I still hold on to that and I’m still very proud of it.
It was certainly a change from the books, where no one ever says outright that Loras or Renly are lovers. In fact, there are precious few references to anyone outside their immediate families even realizing they are gay. (At one point, Cersei even accuses Margaery and Loras of incest, oblivious that Margaery might not be his type.)
But the show’s choice to make them far more out afforded it a chance to to deepen their relationship. And Anthony sees it as a net positive for on screen LBGT relationships.
I got some lovely letters. One that sticks out was from a gentleman who was about to propose, or has perhaps just proposed, to his partner. He said some really nice things about seeing a gay relationship on television. Whenever people connect to things you’re involved with or a story you’re telling, it’s a lovely thing

Gay,Out and a Movie Star in1926

The story of William Haines is remembered, if it’s remembered at all, as the story of the first openly gay Hollywood star. The legend holds that Haines was a major box office draw who was fired by Louis B. Mayer for refusing to drop his live-in boyfriend and marry a woman. This isn’t totally inaccurate, but the truth of Billy Haines’ life in Hollywood is a little more complicated. Haines was born on the eve of the first day of 1900, and his biographer William J. Mann stresses that he was the ultimate child of the 20th century. And as such, he thrived during the Roaring ’20s, and struggled to adapt to the limited opportunities of the following decade, and then he reinvented himself in time to take advantage of the prosperity and consumerism of the midcentury. And through it all he was, proudly, one-half of Hollywood’s first openly gay marriage. 

From 1926 to 1931, thanks to hits like Brown of Harvard and Tell It to the Marines, Billy Haines was ranked as one of the Top 10 box office stars in Hollywood. By 1929, his studio boss, MGM’s Irving Thalberg, was holding up Haines as both the prototypical symbol of male youth of his day, and also the new model of a male romantic star. “The idealistic love of a decade ago is not true today,” Thalberg said. “William Haines, with his modern salesman attitude to go and get it, is more typical.”

By the time Thalberg made that speech, he and everyone else in the Hollywood community knew that Haines was, for all intents and purposes, married to a man. In 1926, on a trip to New York while on the cusp of his superstardom, Haines had a whirlwind fling with a 21-year-old former sailor names Jimmy Shields. When Haines returned to L.A., he brought Shields with him, and moved his new boyfriend into his house and got him work as an extra at MGM. Following the example of his friends from his days in New York’s Greenwich Village, Billy was intent on living with Jimmy without embarrassment or apology.

That Haines was living openly with another man, thereby destroying any possibility that he might not be gay, initially did absolutely nothing to impact Haines’ popularity around town or at his home studio. They were one of the few couples to make it into Marion Davies and William Randolph Hearst’s inner circle, meriting invitations to San Simeon nearly weekly. And the local movie press knew, too, but nobody had any incentive to publish an exposé about it or anything. If any journalist had, he would have been frozen out of MGM for the rest of time. And at this point in time, as long as they weren’t hurting anybody, which they weren’t, nobody cared. 

Sometimes Billy would get asked a softball question about his love life, which he was always able to deflect with a wisecrack. Journalist and subject would wink at each other, the actor would be classified in print as an eligible or confirmed bachelor, and everyone would move on. When an earnest journalist from out of town asked him when are you going to get married, Haines would announce he was engaged to an imminently ineligible lady—usually frumpy slapstick comedienne Polly Moran.

During the 1920s, Haines always found ways to answer questions about his personal life without either lying or telling the truth. It wasn’t evident to every reader at the time, but reading some of the quips today, his use of sarcasm and irony speak volumes in their own way. If nothing else, Haines was always looking for an opening for a bawdy wisecrack or double-entendre. When an MGM voice couch informed Haines that his vocal technique was “lip lazy,” Haines fired back, “I’ve never had any complaints before.”

In fact, William Haines was actually better set up for the transition than many stars. His voice was robust and not thickly accented. Also, unlike stars like John Gilbert whose essential thing was made obsolete by sound film, Billy’s signature in silent films had been wisecracks, inserted as intertitles to make it seem like Billy was a master of wit and timing. In fact, he was, and Haines was easily able to perform the same trick accomplished by the intertitles as a talking comedian. Haines made the transition to talkies seamlessly, and 1929 would be the peak of his box office stardom. The trouble was still to come.

In 1930, every studio in Hollywood agreed to follow the moral guidelines laid out by the Hays Production Code, but it was an empty promise: Everyone knew the Hays Office had no ability to punish violators of the code. If anything, while producers were waiting for the censors to come up with a way to enforce their puritan code, movies got racier. But the existence of the code made studios more apt to use the morals clauses that were now standard elements of almost every performer’s contract to scare stars into improving their public behavior.

Most stars signed the contract, and then either tried to stay out of trouble, or assumed that the studio wouldn’t use the clause against them. At the peak of his stardom in the late 1920s, Billy Haines reportedly managed to get the morals clause removed from his contract entirely, by refusing to sign until it was. As a trade-off, MGM would only sign him to two-year extensions at a time, rather than the five-year contracts that were more standard.

His films began to slide at the box office over the course of 1930, and in 1931, Haines’ MGM contract was canceled, only for Haines to be brought back to the studio as a featured player at a far reduced salary and billing. In 1931, in an attempt to rebrand Haines from the wisecracking post-college boy into a more adult romantic lead, Haines was cast in a movie called Just a Gigolo, in which he played a trust-fund playboy who makes a bawdy bet with his uncle that if he could get a society princess to give up her virtue within a month, then he wouldn’t have to get married. 

Haines was told going in that he was to abandon his usual winking, wisecracking persona for this film, but it seems like he ignored that edict. Just a Gigolo, which debuted the song later covered by David Lee Roth, did OK, but it failed to turn around the impression that William Haines’ star was slipping. Haines was informed that his contract wouldn’t be renewed, and the trade papers said it was because the star was angling for more money. Then MGM agreed to take Billy back, but at a much-reduced salary, and with his name demoted to below the titles of his films. He was forced to go on a dreaded personal appearance tour. He took up a strenuous diet and exercise regime, rationalizing that losing weight might help him appear younger and fresher.

Many versions of Haines’ story say that at this point, in early 1933, Louis B. Mayer called Haines into his office and told him that it was time for Billy to get serious, drop Jimmy and get married. In this version of the story, Billy says, “I am married.” He chooses Jimmy over Mayer, walks out the door, and becomes Hollywood’s most in-demand interior designer.

William Haines did become Hollywood’s most in-demand interior designer after his career at MGM ended, but the rest of the story is up for debate. For years, everyone at MGM had known that William Haines was gay and living with a man he loved. So why would Mayer make an ultimatum now?

Members of the Hollywood gay scene of the time believe that Billy had taken the hit for Jimmy, who had been arrested in a bar or a park, where he was known to cruise. But if that happened, it was covered up. What we do know is that Billy’s star had dimmed. We know he was getting older, and he hadn’t successfully transitioned out of his Harvard-boy persona. We know the depression had everyone scared about profit margins, and most studios were cutting salaries, if not straight up canceling the pricy contracts of aging stars. 

We know that many other stars in Hollywood had gay relationships, but most presented themselves as straight when told to. Billy’s old friend Archie Leach, for instance, is acknowledged now by many biographers to have lived as a gay man before he came to Hollywood and to have continued relationships with men after he became Cary Grant. But Cary Grant, and just about everyone else, was willing to play by the rules of the game that Louis B. Mayer and the other studio moguls set. They were willing to marry women—in Cary Grant’s case, several women—and keep their true private lives private. And we know that with the impending enforcement of the Production Code, which would happen in 1934, every studio was under pressure to make it seem like their houses were clean. And so, William Haines, the top box office star in all of Hollywood in 1929, found himself, four years later, out of a job.

Or, at least, out the job that had made him famous. William Haines had never aspired to be an actor, and once the rug was pulled from under him at MGM, he got right back on his feet. In 1930, Billy had become part owner of an antiques shop on La Brea Avenue. By that point he had already turned his own home into a showroom for his exquisite taste, and his guests were always asking where they could buy things like the ones he had, so he gave them a place to do it. He’d go into a starlet’s house and toss out the gaudy animal prints and gilded ornaments that she bought with her first flush of cash because she thought that was fancy, and replace everything with genuinely fancy stuff, high-quality, sophisticated simplicity, with elect pops of color or flashy accents. Hand-painted wallpaper became one of his signatures, as did low-to-the ground sitting rooms, outfitted with ottoman tables perfect for casual entertaining. Occasionally his antiques and art were borrowed for use in movies—paintings personally owned by William Haines lined the walls of Tara in Gone With the Wind.

Above all else, Billy understood how people liked to live, and he was able to create spaces in which they could do it. Billy and Jimmy enjoyed a high position in Hollywood for decades. Some members of the Hollywood community shunned them for living openly, but their true friends stayed loyal. They continued to attend parties at San Simeon, and at Joan Crawford’s house. And they stayed together until Billy’s death, in 1973. In fact, when his lover of nearly 50 years was gone, Jimmy Shields didn’t know what to do with himself.
Joan Crawford tried to help, but it was no use. He soon killed himself. He left behind a note that said, “It’s no good without Billy.”

Pre Greatness Colton Haines and Now Out, Proud and Hot Actor

According to OUT, “At home, Haynes’s mom, Dana, was both blindsided and dismayed by her son’s announcement that he way ‘gay’.. His response was to rebel. A year of exploration—in which he lost his virginity to both sexes—also became one rife with drug experimentation. He ran away from home for three weeks and bunked in a friend’s closet. He was there when an estranged relative called to tell him that his father, William, had committed suicide by swallowing roughly 40 oxycodone pills.”
When asked about his father’s tragic death, Haynes opened up and said “I’m the last person in the world who would say, ‘Oh, my dad—pity me,’” he said. “But I was told that my dad killed himself because he found out I was gay. So, of course, I lost it and was like, ‘How could you say something like that?’ And no one will ever really know the truth. But my brother and my mom went to pick up my dad’s stuff, and the only picture on his fridge was my eighth-grade graduation picture. So I was just like, F—k.”
Haynes also provided insight to his altercation with Noah Galvin. He said, “When I came out, Noah tweeted, ‘Welcome to the family,’ and ‘So proud of you.’” Haynes added, “I have the tweets saved on my phone. Then, all of a sudden, I’m the worst, I’m a terrible person, and I’m a shame to the gay community. I think just having enough nerve and guts to come out in any way is a lot. It was really an emotional thing for me. And for that to be discredited by someone who has never met me was upsetting. He has no idea what I’ve been through. And I can’t sit here and have a conversation about Noah because I don’t know him either.”

Zachary Quinto as an American Gay Man: “Scary”

Zachary Quinto is opening up about what it's like to be a gay American amid the country's current social and political climate. 

In an interview with Time, the 39-year-old Star Trek Beyond star reflects on life as an out actor in the wake of the Orlando shooting at gay nightclub Pulse and Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's appointment of vice presidential candidate Mike Pence, who has previously spoken out against LGBT rights. 

"I am scared," Quinto said of the political climate. "I don't take anything for granted." 

"There are indicators of the pendulum swinging the other way right now in terms of the political temperature and the landscape of Trump," he explained. "It's absurd to me, but I have to have faith that we'll endure and triumph. I have to feel like people will look at these two old white men, who represent everything that is negative in history, and say there are more people who want to go a different direction. I hope so."  

"We have to fight with everything we have to continue the path that we've been able to gain such ground on in the last five to 10 years," he continued. "It's just a bleak and dangerous moment in our geopolitical landscape right now. It's unprecedented in our lifetime how precariously we're all perched – not just here in this country but around the world." 

He also explained how the political tension in our world today is echoed in the themes found in Star Trek Beyond. 

"Our adversary in this movie is a being who's diametrically opposed to the Federation," Quinto said. "He wants to destroy a place that's a hub for different species and races – people from all over the galaxy coming together and inhabiting this one place. It's weirdly parallel to what's going on all over the world right now." 

"There's waves of nationalism and xenophobia and fear-based thinking and intolerance," he went on. “It's alarming."

Not Since Delicious Tab Hunter Out Hollywood Actor


In the new documentary Tab Hunter Confidential, the actor is twice referred to as “delicious.” He’s even called “A breath of spring.” And what words could describe how radiantly beautiful he is in, of all things, a TV clip about mental illness which he made in the 1950s after he had to commit his mother to an institution. It was a public service announcement providing national awareness and compassion for the disease. In this doc, Hunter earns awareness and compassion for his gay life story. Today’s Hollywood has no equivalent movie star.
“I would never talk about my private life,” Hunter remembers his early years. The doc traces his pop career, including the moment when the tabloid magazine Confidential, exposed his 1950 arrest at “a limp-wristed pajama party.” (The charge “disorderly conduct” was a code.) Surviving the scandal, Hunter proves there is life after slander. This doc, produced by Hunter’s life partner Allan Glaser and directed by Jeffrey Schwarz, is a personal public service announcement and the most entertaining movie so far this year.  Born to German-American parents as Art Gelien, he was renamed “Tab Hunter”—a comically bland name to match his blue-eyed blond features which at that time were considered “All-American.” The name-image match-up was devised by Hollywood agent Henry Willson who specialized in pretty boys like Guy Madison (Robert Moseley), Rock Hudson (Roy Scherer), Troy Donahue (Merle Johnson), Chad Everett (Raymon Crampton). If Willson was a glorified pimp, he yet had an uncanny read of the American market, knowing what appealed to women as well as men—plus the special, subconscious allure of delicate masculinity that was particular to gay subculture.
Hunter doesn’t say much about that twilight world, but talks about growing up beautiful, sought-after and “scared of my own shadow.” He confesses his closeted Hollywood life: “I had the ability to live behind this wall.” Today, his gayness is an open secret, but taking the public into his confidence is still a major event. Although Hunter is a movie icon—the luckiest of the lucky—this film reveals a different side to the coming-out dilemma by presenting his story of personal growth. Hunter’s gentlemanly discretion, so different from current political boldness, emphasizes personal decency—a virtue as timeless as his good looks.  
In professional terms: Hunter became a popular screen heartthrob in the 1950s—the era of “the teenage revolution”—also achieving success by making rock’n’roll music. (His Number One hit “Young Love” for Dot Records convinced Warner Bros. Studios to start its own record company.) “They [Warner Bros. Studio] created this persona; that was your job to be that persona. You were rewarded for pretending you were something you’re not,” he explains. 
 Here is Tab with long time boyfriend Anthony Perkins
 A product of Hollywood’s golden age, Tab Hunter became Hollywood’s golden boy. His first starring role, at the tender age of 19, was opposite Linda Darnell in the romantic South Seas adventure Island of Desire. An instant success, Tab went on to star in over 40 major motion pictures, including Battle Cry, The Pleasure of His Company, That Kind of Woman, Gunman’s Walk, They Came to Cordura, Ride the Wild Surf, The Loved One, The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean, and the Academy Award-nominated Damn Yankees. A few of Tab’s leading ladies include Sophia Loren, Natalie Wood, Gwen Verdon, Rita Hayworth, Lana Turner, Debbie Reynolds, Kim Basinger and Michelle Pfeiffer. Multi-talented Tab also enjoyed a very successful recording career that culminated with one of the top records of the rock and roll era. His recording of Young Love zoomed to number one on the charts worldwide (knocking Elvis out of the top spot) where it remained for six weeks. 

Tab subsequently starred in his own television series for NBC, was nominated for an Emmy for his performance opposite Geraldine Page in Playhouse 90’s Portrait of a Murderer and has guest starred in dozens of television shows. He also appeared on Broadway with Tallulah Bankhead in Tennessee Williams’s The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore.

Tab’s film career took off once again in the 1980s/90s as he starred in such films as John Waters’ Polyester, Grease 2, and the cult comedy-Western Lust in the Dust. Turning to producing, Tab teamed up with Allan Glaser to produce Lust in the Dust and Dark Horse .

Tab can now also add best selling author to his list of credits. His recently published autobiography TAB HUNTER CONFIDENTIAL became a national best seller and garnered critical praise from the NEW YORK TIMES, WASHINGTON POST, VANITY FAIR, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, NEW YORK POST, GOOD MORNING AMERICA, LARRY KING LIVE, CBS SUNDAY MORNING and dozens more

An award winning feature film documentary also entitled Tab Hunter Confidential based on the book was released in 2015.

‘F**Off I’M Gay': Sir Ian McKellen

Image result for ian mckellen patrick stewart kiss

As Sir Ian McKellen’s turns 77 (May 25), what better way to celebrate than to sit back and reflect on the actor’s achievements within the gay rights movement.

Here’s a list of the top 8 times our hero championed our cause:

1) Coming Out

Every story has a beginning, and Sir Ian McKellan’s started in 1988 when he came out as gay on a live BBC radio interview. Section 28 of the Local Government Act 1988 (now defunct) had just been passed, prohibiting local authorities from “promoting” homosexuality or gay “pretended family relationships.”

McKellen said this spurred his decision to bring his sexuality into the open, propelling him into a successful mainstream career.

“Everything in society was against people in my generation coming out because it was against the law to make love,” he said in an interview with Charlie Rose last year.

“So if every time you have sex you remind yourself you’re a criminal, that’s not something you really want to talk about unless you’re a really, really brave person, which I wasn’t.”

We beg to differ, old boy.

2) Gay Pride

Fast-forward nearly 30 years and Sir Ian McKellen has been at the forefront of gay rights activism, most recently leading Manchester’s 2015 Pride celebrations with thorough fanfare. Before this he’s attended (and lead) numerous pride events across the country, and is a patron for both London and Oxford Pride.

In a BBC interview he said: “Onlookers can be impressed by our confidence and determination to be ourselves and gay people, of whatever age, can be comforted by the occasion to take the first steps towards coming out and leaving the closet forever behind.”

3) The X-Men                                      
Image result for ian mckellen x men

“X-Men was a gay man’s delight, because it was full of the most amazing divas,” said McKellen in an interview with The Guardian. The actor joined the X-men franchise in 2000 as metal-bending supervillain Magneto, and frequently drew connections between the movies and his gay rights activism in public.

The parallels were made clear in his interview with BuzzFeed: “Mutants are like gays. They are cast out by society for no good reason.

“And as in all civil rights movements they have to decide if they are going to take the Xavier line, which is to assimilate and stand up for yourself but be proud of what you are and get on with everybody,”

“Or you take the alternative view, which is if necessary to use violence to stand up for your own rights.

“And that’s true – I’ve come across that division within the gay rights movement.”

He used the platform to congratulate co-star Ellen Page, who plays Kitty Pryde in the franchise, on coming out.

4) Bromance

On Celebrity Big Brother, James Hill and Austin Armacost showed the world how straight and gay men can be best buddies. But for a crash course on bromancing we need look no further than Sirs Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart. The X-Men co-stars sent the internet wild these past few years, with adorable pics of them holidaying and just being generally silly. If there’s a positive message to come out of this, it’s that the power of friendship conquers all prejudice.

5) Stone Wall
Taking its name after the Stonewall riots in New York City, Stonewall has evolved into the UK’s  leading LGBT rights charity, lobbying for policy development since 1989.

Sir Ian McKellen became one of the founding members of the group after seeking to lobby against Section 28 of the Local Government Act.

Looking back on Stonewall, McKellen said: “Nothing in life is more important to me than helping young people realise that there are better days ahead of them.

“I’m proud that Stonewall – which I helped create to tackle legalised homophobia – is now leading the fight in those British schools where homophobic bullying ruins far too many young people’s lives.

“It’s a privilege to play a small part in bringing it to an end.”

The actor is still active within Stonewall, having surprised young activists by making an appearance at its Youth Awards this year.

6) ‘Fuck off I’m gay’ 

In an episode of Have I Got News For You, Sir Ian McKellen recalled meeting with Environment Secretary Michael Howard to lobby against Section 28.

Howard declined, but asked the actor to sign an autograph for his children.

The actor obliged and wrote: ‘Fuck off I’m gay’, instead.

That’s a good a middle finger as any.

7) International Affairs

Remember that time Sir Ian McKellen caused a Singaporean news channel to cut off his interview short after he asked where some good gay bars were?

Neither did we. But watch – it’s awesome.

8) India

It was only a few days ago that Sir Ian quipped his latest arguments in advancements of gay rights. In a visit to India to attend a film festival, he made the comments that criticised section 377 of the Indian Penal Code, a colonial law that effectively makes sexual relations between gay men illegal.

Ian said during his interview: “India is going through what the UK went through 30 years ago. It is appalling and ironical that India would use a colonial law to oppress its homosexuals.

“India needs to grow up. India needs to realise that it doesn’t need to follow British laws any more. But things are changing on other fronts. Kashish, Mumbai’s LGBT film festival, is a great example of that.”

He will be attending the LGBT-themed Kashish Film Festival tomorrow (May 26).

Like a fine wine Sir Ian McKellen just seems to be getting better with age – many happy returns!

James Franco “I’m a Gay Cok Tease”

James Franco is straight but not narrow. 
In a new interview, the actor, 38, addressed questions about his sexuality
“Yeah, I’m a little gay,” he explained. “And there’s a gay James.”

He added, “There is a bit of over-focusing on my sexuality, both by the straight press and the gay press, and so the first question is why do they care? Well, because I’m a celebrity, so I guess they care who I’m having sex with. But if your definition of gay and straight is who I sleep with, then I guess you could say I’m a gay cock tease.”
This isn’t the first time the Pineapple Express star has said that he is gay, while explaining that he doesn’t have sex with men. 
 Earlier this year, he said, “I’m gay in my art and straight in my life,” adding, “I’m also gay in my life up to the point of intercourse.”
Hey, do you, James!

I am posting about James Franco for the last time until he fully comes out. A person doesn’t even need a gaydar to get him tag good. I guess either mentally he has a problem or he believes is more fun this way. I do see in him the video of many of us when people starting asking if we were gay and we used the same language to hide something that was part of us and it was out in front wether we liked it or not. It’s just so happen that one does not need to be a celebrity to have the ones we allowed close to us to question us. At this point in which some us cannot even use a bathroom with a Doctor’s note it is still relative to ask for which team we play.  It will stop but not yet.

What John Travolta Gay Needs are When He Travels He Gets

Every year or so I post gay news about Travolta. He remains on my radar screen because of his disregard for our community. Belonging to a religion that was and still hating of gays the likes of Travolta, Tom Cruise and others makes it seems the only gay people accepted there are movie stars. These people that everyone know are gay could be so much of help to gays having a rough time coming out instead they perpetuate the myth that coming out is not even an option. As long as you deny it or just not even that, then no one sees you.

According the the actor’s rider, details of which have been revealed to Page SixThe People V. OJ Simpson star allegedly has a few very specific demands when he stays at a hotel. 
The source reveals that amongst his requirements;
Every hotel room he checks into comes complete with a male masseur.
And that the windows must be blacked out with  “aluminum foil and dark curtains”.
And he brings his own sheets.
And the room also has to be vacant for 24 hours so that he is not forced to inhale the scents of previous guests.
Just days ago, The National Enquirer interviewed a male massage therapist named Edwardwho claims to have had a ‘gay tryst’ with the Grease legend. He dished that he gave Travolta a ‘happy ending’ and even had sex with another A-list star in 2011. Sadly, Eddie didn’t cough up the other name though. 

If it looks like a duck…

Rumors of Travolta’s sexuality have been circulating from way back, and full on claims have been out in the open after a number of lawsuits were filed against the Pulp Fiction actor.
In 2012, two men sued Travolta for sexual battery lawsuits in court—both men were represented by high profile attorney Gloria Allred.
The first man, known simply as Jon Doe 1, claimed that Travolta groped him at the Beverly Hills Hotel in January 2012, the same month that the second alleged victim claimed the actor groped him at a hotel in Atlanta.
Official court documents state alleged victim number 2 claims;
“Travolta suddenly turned on his stomach with his legs wide open with a full erection. He then tried to force Doe Plaintiff No. 2′s hand on Travolta’s scrotum.
Then, Travolta started to grab, rub and caress Doe Plaintiff no. 2′s upper thighs and buttocks.
Travolta still had an erection and wanted his abdominals done, but Travolta’s erection was in the way and he refused to have his penis covered by a sheet of a pillow case cover…Travolta started masturbating with about 15 minutes left in the session, and Doe Plaintiff No. 2, said he had to go.” 
John Doe 1 and John Doe 2 eventually dropped their suits and Allred said:
“We believe that the lawsuit should be filed in another court and, therefore, the lawsuit was dismissed without prejudice. We will be conferring with our client regarding what will happen next in this case.”

All at sea…

Three years prior to those claims, John was apparently getting freaky at on a cruise.
In 2009, Royal Caribbean International employee Fabian Zanzi accused Travolta of sexually harassing him.
In an Employee Discipline Form, which was obtained by TMZ, it claims;
“According to his own statement, Fabian proceeded to a guest stateroom to deliver a room service order as instructed by his supervisor. While in the stateroom the guest invited Fabian to take a seat to talk for a few minutes. Fabian accepted the offer and sat for a few minutes. When he stood up to leave the stateroom the guest asked him to give him a neck massage.
Fabian clearly stated that he did so shortly and then told the guest he needed to leave.”
From there, the encounter escalated. “According to Fabian, the guest then told him he was a beautiful person and invited him to return to visit him later that night. Fabian explained that he couldn’t do so due to the strict company policy and despite the fact that the guest insisted, he left the room.” 
Travolta’s lawyer Marty Singer said at the time; ‘The incident report now confirms Mr. Zanzi fabricated his story about my client. He never stated that my client did anything wrong. Obviously, if he had engaged in any inappropriate conduct he would have reported it to his supervisors.”
Zanzi has since dropped the lawsuit.

That’s not all…

Plus of course there were the allegations from Travolta’s former pilot Douglas Gotterba that he and his boss had enjoyed a six year sexual relationship. A lawsuit around a confidentiality agreement between the pair was due to come to a head in a courtroom face off in July 2014, but was suddenly dropped just one week before the court date.

So far Travolta hasn’t commented on his purported rider requirements…

Will Smith being Outed Gay by Alexis Arquette

Alexis Arquette claims that Will and Jada Pinkett Smith are gay and the “Concussion” actor paid off his first wife after she walked in on him with another man.

“When Jada comes out as gay and her beard husband admits his first marriage ended when she walked in to him … servicing his Sugar Daddy Benny Medina … then I will listen to them,” Arquette wrote in a since-deleted Facebook post on Tuesday, according to the Daily Mail. She later clarified in the comments section, “‘She’ being his FIRST Wife. Paid off, silent.”

Will’s first marriage to Sheree Zampino ended in 1995. They had one child together, Trey Smith. Will married Jada in 1997.

Medina, 57, is known for managing the careers of Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey and other megastars.

“Will threw a fit on the set of [‘Six Degrees of Separation’] when he was required by the scene to kiss Anthony Rapp,” Arquette continued. “He persuaded the director to shoot the back of his head in frame. Blocking the non existent lip lock entirely. …him. Gays have enemies. They lurk in gilded closets. Outing is healthy. You are either with or against us. You decide. Today.”

Arquette’s comments come after Jada, 44, announced she was boycotting the Oscars over the lack of diversity among the nominees. (Will, 47, was not nominated for his role in “Concussion.”)

But Arquette isn’t the only person angry with Will and Jada: Former “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” actress Janet Hubert also took aim at the couple in a lengthy video this week.

“There’s lots of s–t going on in the world that you all don’t seem to recognize,” Hubert said. “People are dying. Our boys are being shot left and right. People are starving. People are trying to pay bills. And you’re talking about some … actors and Oscars. It’s just ain’t that deep.”

Requests for comment from Will, Jada and Alexis Arquette’s reps were not immediately returned.

I have been listening to rumors for a couple of decades about Will Smith, now you probably have also. Iam posting this outing from Alexis Arquette because of those rumors. I have always been bothered by Will Smith super Straightness if you can call it that and as an example I will tell you about Will not getting too close to parts that call for a gay character and when he did once he thought it was not manly to kiss another actor on stage. I guess he never kissed his dad and instead used bear hugs with the two pads on the back and handshakes. As a latin I don’t understand that because you always kiss your dad to say hello and good bye regardless of age. S kissing another man has nothing to do with gayness. Be as it may we will see what the future brings. I know there are gay actors hiding behind the facade of being gay friendly but at least they know who they are. Those who are in danger of being outed are those trying to be too straight so there wont be any talk. I won’t out an actor who is closeted gay friendly but a super dude-straight I will post what ever evidence I had with out a second thought. I am not rooting for Will to be found out with corroboration to Alexis claims or not. I do hope we come soon to the day that such things wont matter.
