In an interview with HuffPost Live, Teen Wolf and The Leftovers star Charlie Carver revealed behind the scenes tidbits about his gay threesome scene with James Franco and Zachary Quinto in I Am Michael - calling the scene, "hot as hell". However, Carver's comments moreso pertain to where the scene was filmed: shot in a hot, stuffy Long Island attic during the summer.

Andy Bulter of Hercules And Love Affair has a new track out from his upcoming two-track solo EP called You Can Shine. He has released the first track, "You Can Shine" featuring Richard Kennedy, on Soundcloud, and it showcases a dark techno beat overlaid with some falsetto gospel-style vocals. Butler released a statement on the project, saying:
Whilst Hercules has a collaborative, collective approach, “Shine” goes for a more direct approach, a stomping, uplifting club 12″ but it’s me so it will still have something of Hercules about it. I wanted to tap into the gospel tradition, for there to be a testifying quality to the record. Richard and I talk in the lyrics about putting ego aside and allowing people around you to shine. You shine when you acknowledge other people’s shine, even, if you will, the creator’s shine. I hope we’ve created something new. House is often soulful but you very rarely hear a big gospel-inflected voice paired with booming, doomy techno.
The EP is out on vinyl on 2/23, on Beatport on 3/16, and on iTunes and other digital retailers 3/30 via Butler’s label mr. intl. You can shine along with Butler and Kennedy in the audio track AFTER THE JUMP...
AllHipHop reports that in a Sundance Q&A, recording artist-turned-actor Kid Cudi lamented a gay scene that got cut from his new movie, James White (directed by Josh Mond).
I’m mad [Mond] cut out my kissing scenes with David [Call]...We made out so many times — and it was so good! That’s my only gripe [with the film].
Kudi has also said the film was different from other things he's done, and that "it was dope...I felt like I had a responsibility to present a different walk in life from that world."
James White is "a frenetic coming of age story about a young New Yorker struggling to take control of his reckless, self destructive behavior in the face of momentous family challenges." The film also stars Cynthia Nixon and Christopher Abbott (Girls).
Rep. Patricia Todd, Alabama's first openly gay legislator, has threatened to expose the adulterous affairs of certain anti-gay state officials should they start speaking out about "family values" in the wake of the state's ban on same-sex marriage being overturned by a federal judge.
But after seeing comments by Republican officials, particularly from Alabama Speaker of the House Mike Hubbard, and seeing Attorney General Luther Strange's efforts to get a stay of the judge's orders, Todd fired off an emotional Facebook post making a threat to expose politicians' dalliances.
"This (is) a time where you find out who are accepting, loving people. To say I am disappointed in Speaker Hubbard comment's and Attorney General Strange choice to appeal the decision is an understatement. I will not stand by and allow legislators to talk about 'family values' when they have affairs, and I know of many who are and have. I will call our elected officials who want to hide in the closet OUT," Todd stated in her Facebook post over the weekend. [...]
Hubbard issued a brief statement to AL.com in response to Todd's Facebook post. "I consider Rep. Todd a friend, and we have always enjoyed a good and cordial relationship, so I am sorry that she is upset about my remarks," Hubbard stated. "We do have a fundamental disagreement on allowing same sex marriages in Alabama, and I will continue to voice my opinion on this important social issue, just as I expect she will continue to voice hers, but we can disagree without being disagreeable."
Todd said she believes public sentiment towards same-sex marriage in Alabama has changed significantly in the past few years. "The leadership needs to recognize that now," she said.
Todd married her longtime partner Jennifer Clarke in Provincetown, Massachusetts in 2013. She is also the lead sponsor of an anti-discrimination bill protection LGBT Alabamians that is named after Apple CEO Tim Cook, a native of the state.
